April Favourties


Its the time of the month, where bloggers gather there favourites for the month and then write about them. I used to do these back in the day, but then i stopped doing them, but I'm back doing one today and I'm excited to share these weird favourites with everyone.

Washing detergent. I can't believe this is actually in my favourites. I feel like my mum would be so proud of me. Anyway, since I'm now living on my own, I have to be an adult and this means buying adult things like washing detergent. I know we use this brand at home, I just think it's called something else but I'm not too sure, so hence why I got it. The scent of this one is amazing. At home it's called Strawberry Lily and it's the most amazing scent ever. Trying to explain scents is not my forte, but whether your in the UK or Australia, just buy it and smell it. It will blow your mind at how amazing it is. This is pretty much a necessity in every household and this is by far my favourite washing detergent ever, even though it's the only one I've ever tried. 

BAE is amazing. I love BAE. Bacon and eggs. I should probably call it BASE. Bacon and scrambled eggs. Typically eggs aren't my favourite food purely because of the smell. If a food smells bad, like eggs, cheese or fish then I normally don't eat it because the smell just makes me feel sick. After my old roommate at the hostel I was staying at was talking about eggs and how cheap they are, I just decided to buy some and make scrambled eggs and I have pretty much made scrambled eggs and bacon every day since. Of course I put stupid amounts of ketchup, sorry tomato sauce over it, but that's just how I like it. This doesn't relate, but every time I ask someone for ketchup they just look at me like I'm from another planet, so I have to remember it's tomato sauce, not ketchup. 

Sun cream is a fairly obvious one I feel. I can admit it's not something that I used to wear in the UK, because, well it's never sunny and the sun just never did anything to my skin. However, that's all changed. Being in Australia, where I've been told the o zone later is thin about 1000 times and the skin cancer rate is a lot higher, I find myself reaching for it more. I don't usually wear it unless I'm going to the beach, because for work my skin is covered and if I'm going to the town, I stick to the shade. I don't use a fancy brand, I just stick to Nivea. I have a factor 30 and a factor 50. I had to buy a factor 50 out here and I couldn't actually find any factor lower, which I think is actually really good. I did bring my factor 8 carrot suncream, but I think I may resemble a lobster if I apply that in the summer. 

Moisture Mist is life. I honestly I don't know how I survived without this. My dry skin is an absolute nightmare and this has become a saviour for me. It's a fine mist, so your not making that squinty face at the shock of the mist on your face. I like to use this after the shower, just to spritz onto my face, as that's when my face is normally the driest. It's also amazing if your sitting in the sun and you just need a quick refresh. It cools your down instantly and also moisturises your skin at the same time. What more could you want?!?

Benefit goof proof eyebrow pencil is my life. If you know me, then you know I love my eyebrows almost a little bit too much. I received a sample of this when Benefit were re-branding all their eyebrow products and I've not stopped using it since. I purchased the full size one at Gatwick because it was cheaper and it's still going strong. I don't do my eyebrows that often these days, only if I'm in the mood to do them or I'm going out in the evening. This pencil is super fine and you don't need to apply much pressure for it to be visible on the skin. It also has a spoolie on the opposite end, which is so great for going through your brows whilst your filling them in for a more natural look. 

Hand cream isn't something I reach for a lot, but after a couple hours picking grapes, I can't begin to explain how disgusting your hands are. I'm not going to describe it because it's horrible, but just think sticky, clamy and smelly.  I got this hand cream from some friends as a leaving gift and oh my god, this stuff is amazing! I hate it when hand creams take about 5 years to absorb into your skin, however, this little beauty takes about 5 seconds. They feel so moisturised and soft, it's incredible. I have also used this on my feet a couple of times and it makes such a difference. I'm trying to use it sparingly, as I don't want it to run out because that's how good it is. The scent is also so nice, it's not overpowering like some cocoa scented products can be, it's a nice subtle scent. 

Crunchies are my new favourite chocolate bar. Not a lot to say about them, apart from I've eaten way to many and will probably continue to eat way to many. 

The same goes for Cheezels. Think wotsits and quavers combined into a hula hoop shape, but with the texture of a wotsits. I know I said I wasn't a fan of cheese, but these are an exception. Similar to the crunchies, I've eaten way to many and I actually need to stop eating these, as they hurt my mouth, but they still taste amazing. 

So these are my April favourites. Not exactly exciting, but i thought i would share these with you all. Im currently eating a ham and mayo sandwich, which takes me back to the days, when my dad used to make our packed lunches and he would literally apply half a pot or margarine onto them. No margarine on my sandwiches, but maybe too much mayo. Enjoy your day!
