April Favourites 2017

It would’ve been nice to start my monthly favourites ‘series’ at the start of this year. However, I didn’t have this blog then, and who says I can’t start now.

Within the month April, I found a lot of favourites. I was away on holiday over Easter and managed to get a few things from there. But also, I’ve been getting into a couple of new TV shows.
So grab yourself a cuppa, and let’s get started…

COLLECTION LASTING PERFECTION FOUNDATION

Over the last 7 years, I have tried so many foundations, from high end to low end. I recently finished the last drop of my Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Foundation (which was amazing!), however, I needed a new one to last me until I can purchase a new Tarte foundation. So, while I was on holiday in Whitby, I nipped into their Superdrug. Which BTW, is the best store ever!  They have a bigger range of products, new offers, and new makeup brands (and nicer staff)…

Anyway, so I thought I would give this a go, as seen as I have tried the concealer and fell in love. For only £5.99, I couldn’t not get it! And let me tell ya, it’s awesome. Not only does it blend lovely, it’s HIGH coverage…I love a foundation that is cheap and high coverage, oh and the added bonus is how long it stays on for. Right now at 10pm (as I am writing this post) my foundation has stayed put, since 6am this morning!!!
Definitely worth a try. Oh and umm…the Tarte makeup is gonna have to wait because this is my No.1 favourite. Sorry, not sorry!

TECHNIC COLOURFIX COLOUR CORRECTOR PALETTE

I have always wanted to try colour correctors but didn’t want to spend the money in case I didn’t like it, or if I forgot to use it. So I saw this for only £1.99!! I love this stuff… I tend to stick to the green, purple, yellow and silver colours, only because I know where to use them.  🙂

It’s so pigmented and covers my dark circles under my eyes, and my red patch on my chin. Blends lovely too! The only problem I have is that it is a little drying if you have dry skin, however, once I apply my foundation, you can’t tell. And tbh you can’t complain, for the price of it.

RIVERDALE

Okay, so I only started watching this at the end of March – the start of April. It was recommended by a friend, who said it was cheesy but good. So I gave it a go. And OH MY GOODNESS!!! This show is amazing (and cheesy)…I ended up getting my mum to watch it with me and I am now waiting for her to get home so we can watch it together.

So I’ll give you a brief outline if you haven’t watched it yet.

Veronica moves to the town Riverdale after her dad gets arrested and she loses everything. She becomes friends with the main characters, Betty, Jughead, and Archie. Before Veronica arrives at Riverdale, the most loved boy Jason Blossom was killed, and the police are trying to find out who killed him.
I don’t want to say anymore, you just need to watch it. Let me know down in the comments if you have seen it…

PRETTY LITTLE LIARS

I have watched PLL for what feels like forever! I am in love with this show and I don’t know what I am going to do with myself when it’s over. I was super excited for the new episodes to come out this year, and now they are out I have never been so excited to find out who the hell A.D is…Tell me who you think A.D is!!

SIGN OF THE TIMES – HARRY STYLES

I have always been a huge lover of Harry Styles and his voice, and he went silent after 1D broke up (apart from the film he is starring in). I first heard this song in the car on the way to Whitby with lots of talking in the background, so I couldn’t quite hear it. About 2 weeks ago I listened to it again, on my own this time. Let’s just say I have it on repeat all the frickin’ time. As its 5 minutes long I have it on repeat for an hour while doing work, then another hour, and so on…

Even though I have listened to this song well over 100 times I still don’t know all the words to it…
It’s nice to have on in the background while doing work, write blog posts (like now) or when I want to relax. Definitely my favourite song of all time.

Let’s Talk About…Periods

Let’s talk periods, the one thing a lot of people are afraid to talk about. And tbh so am I….but why are we so worried to talk about such a natural and pure thing that every woman has to deal with.

Is it because we are worried what others will think? Is it because our emotions are so high we get extra paranoid? Or because we are scared what the boys will think about us?

This day and age, it’s very hard to speak the truth, considering we are a free country. As it should be okay to inform your friends and family that you may seem a bit emotional because you’re on ‘your period’, but we don’t. However some may have the confidence and courage to say so, but no a lot do.

I know that some man out there do have some idea of what happens during a period, or what women have to go through.  On the other hand, there is a lot, a lot of people who don’t give a shit really, especially your boss…

The hardest part for me when I am on my period is going a public toilet, whether it’s work, college, or a friends house. I get super paranoid, and I hate it. I just worry too much…

But the thing is, it’s not just me who feels this, a lot of women and young girls go through the same.
I remember when I was in year 7, and I was around the age of 12. All my friends were getting their periods and I was jealous, I wanted it so bad. Then BAM, within a week I started.

I’m sure that a lot of young girls wish for it because all of their friends are getting it, and you wanna feel cool, and grown up. But the thing is, you don’t want it at such a young age. You need to stay a child as long as you can, don’t rush your childhood. Because when you get to my age, there’s a lot going on. Also, your periods become more frequent.

Every woman should be proud to have their periods, because it’s, unique and special. Also, it brings a new life into this world…

You know I have read a lot of articles, saying a woman should get time off work when they’re on their periods. Yes, that would be lovely. You can sit at home with a hot water bottle on your tummy and eat tonnes of junk food. But is it practical?

Think about it, is it practical? Because while you’re at home feeling sorry for yourself, everyone else is at work, doing your job, and you’re missing out big time. And you are missing 12 weeks a year…That’s a lot.
Also, some woman don’t have periods, whether that’s because of menopause, the pill or a medical issue, and it’s not fair to them if they can’t get time off because they don’t have their periods for a reason that can’t be helped…Do you get where I’m coming from?

I feel that people shouldn’t be embarrassed to talk about periods or be worried because you think people will know that you’re on and you don’t want them to know. See, the problem with me is I worry when in the toilet in case anyone comes in and I get embarrassed because they might know what’s going on. BUT!!!! I’m in a GIRLS bathroom, who all experience and know what it’s like. However, I do know that a lot of girls can be bitchy about it. But you know that you’re not the only one.

One thing that really winds me up is how expensive ladies items are. Actually no, what I really mean is tampons and sanitary towels. See this is the world we live in, where we are too embarrassed to say TAMPONS and TOWELS. Instead, we all say ‘ladies things/items’ or we whisper ‘I need some “things”‘. Just say it! The works tampons and towels, are not rude and won’t offend anyone. It’s just a goddamn word that everyone needs to learn to say it out loud without worrying.

Anyway, back to the expensive side of periods. How ridiculous is the pricing of tampons and towels? It’s disgraceful! Especially is you’re homeless, or a bit low on cash. What do you do? Some places sell them for £12… Yes, you read that right 12 bloody pound!!! Although you can get some for £1.99, how do you know if they are going to be good enough?

Anyway, that’s the end of my little rant of periods. Have a nice day.
