'Simple' Skincare Haul


Simple is a brand that I really, really love. Their products are such amazing quality, from their Cleansing Facial Wipes to their Revitalising Eye Roll-On, they always leave my skin feeling clean and fresh with no bad reactions. 

Recently, I picked up some of their products that I hadn't tried before. I got their Kind to Skin Purifying Cleansing Lotion, Kind to Skin Soothing Toner and their Kind to Eyes Eye Make-up Remover. Once again, Simple have not let me down :) I adore the eye make up remover, it's so refreshing! The cleansing lotion leaves my face feeling clean and soothed, and the toner is amazing. It gently tightens my skin and leaves my face cool and fresh. Love, love, love.

Ikea Haul





KRÅKRIS Bed Throw (£1.60)
I just thought this was such a cute little addition to our bed sheets and goes with every set of duvet covers we have. Plus, it's so unbelievably soft and it was under £2! 


BRÄDA Laptop Support (£8.00)
I am constantly on my laptop and I don't have a desk where I can sit at the moment, so I decided I needed to get some sort of laptop stand. This is cute, quirky and it folds away nicely for storage. It's great for when I'm lying in bed studying or working on my blog. 

FÖRTJUST Tealight Holder (£2.25)
Okay, so I know this is intended as a tealight holder, but how blooming cute does it look holding my jewellery? It's so gorgeous and looks lovely sitting on my set of drawers. 

TRENSUM Mirror (£3.50)
We used to have one of these mirrors that pulled out from the wall in one of our old flats and I always loved it. It's so handy for doing your make-up, all be it depressing that you can see every single freaking pore on your face, and I love that you can carry it to your window so you have the perfect lighting. A great buy. 

SKUBB Boxes (£6.00)
These are so handy! You can fold them away when you're not using them and they're perfect for organising your drawers. 

POKAL Bowl (£1.50)
I wanted to get a nice bowl for having my breakfast in. I usually have oatmeal or yoghurt with fruit so I thought this bowl was perfect for portion size. 

POKAL Mug (£1.70)
This reminds me of American-style milkshakes. I was so tempted to get this in pink but I got the white since it matches my breakfast bowl. 

SOMMARFINT Glass (£0.75)
It has flamingos on it! Need I explain more?

Bunny Update




Tigerlily and Alfie have completely settled into their new home. We let them out on the grass everyday and they spend hours running around together. They're so happy! Our neighbours cat has taken quite a shine to them and spends a lot of his time just sitting on our garden wall, watching their every move (don't worry, I'm keeping a close eye on him). 

It was Tiger's 3rd birthday last week and she ate plenty of dandelions to celebrate. I can't believe she's 3 years old, already! It seems like just yesterday, we were driving to the rabbit breeder's house to collect her, when she was a tiny little bundle of fur. How cute does she look in these photos?! They're from the day that we brought her home :')

April Favourites




Superdrug Cuticle Oil Pen with Vitamin E
My nails are often very soft and weak, so I decided they needed some TLC and purchased some cuticle oil. This one from Superdrug has Vitamin C in it and comes in a handy brush bottle. It's easy to apply, inexpensive,  and my nails are 100% thanking me for it. 

Collection Extreme Felt Tip Liner
I am definitely not gifted with good eyeliner skills. One eye will start out good but end up progressively getting bigger and bigger until I might aswell just have black eyeshadow on. However, this felt tip liner makes it easy. It was only £2.99 from Superdrug and now, cat eyes are my new go-to eye look. 

Collection Work The Colour Eyeshadow Pencil in 'Vintage Blush'
Love, love, love this product. I did a review on the Collection Work the Colour Eyeshadow Pencils a few weeks ago (read it here) and I have been loving them ever since. My favourite is definitely 'Vintage Blush'. It's very subtle but gives your eyes a gorgeous shimmer. It's so easy to use and the staying power is amazing! 

Barry M 'White' Crackle Nail Paint
I've been loving this nail paint this month. It's great for using on an accent nail and it goes with every colour. Whenever I wear it, it always looks like I've gone to loads of effort with my nails when really it only takes one coat. Barry M Nail Paints are always such high quality, too.


Nivea Pearly Shine Lip Balm
I've had this lip balm for quite a while and have only just started using it. It's perfect for Spring and Summer as it has a lovely shimmer to it and gives you such a lovely, fresh glow. It's moisturising and sheer pink. Definitely a 'your lips but better' product.
