Beauty: April Favourites

It's quite a while since I last wrote a monthly beauty favourites post but there's a few products that I've tried recently and enjoyed using.

April beauty favourites
I recently had balayage added to my hair. On my hairdressers recomendation I bought PRO:VOKE Touch Of Silver Brightening Shampoo and PRO:VOKE Touch Of Silver Colour Care Conditioner from B and M Bargains (of all places!) and have been using them once weekly to keep my colour in tip-top condition.

During a visit to The Cosmetics Company Store at the end of last month I treated myself to a MAC duo bundle - which included a Velvet Teddy lipstick and Boldly Bare lip liner. I'm very late to the party with trying out this shade, which has become somewhat a blogger staple over the years, but this creamy deep nude colour has fast become my go to shade for everyday wear.

Review: Nip+Fab Glycolic Fix Extreme pads

I've been using the Nip+Fab Glycolic Fix Extreme pads for a little while now and I've been impressed with them. 

I would say that I have combination skin, although at the moment my skin is that little bit drier than usual. I've been using these pads a few times a week, after cleansing, to help exfoliate my skin and make it look that little bit brighter.

Although I don't tend to get a huge amount of spots, when I do them they like to come out in force (ain't nobody got time for that!).  I've found that since introducing this product into my skincare routine my breakouts have been less frequent, which is always a positive.

Life: A Visit To The Fashionable Yorkshire Exhibition

I was very kindly invited to the Fashionable Yorkshire exhibition which is showing at Lotherton Hall from now until the end of the year. 

The exhibition showcases five centuries of style and focuses on how women's fashion has changed throughout history - from the 1600's through to the 1970's. This sounded like it would be right up my street so last weekend I headed to check it out.

The exhibition itself is relatively small but personally I didn't mind this as it was a chance to discover the stories behind the outfits (and briefly about the women that wore them).

Life: A Weekend In Bologna

If you follow me on social then you may already know that last weekend I headed to Bologna  with my Boyfriend. I have already shared (most) of the photo's from my trip on my Instagram but I wanted to put together a post about my weekend as well (although this post may be a little photo heavy).


After a slight delay at our departing airport we arrived in Bologna around lunchtime on Friday. After doing a little bit of exploring we headed to our Air BnB apartment to check in. Our Air BnB host had provided us with a guide containing recommendations of places to visit and places to eat etc, which we found to be very helpful. That evening we headed out for drinks and then we went for dinner at a local restaurant which served the most amazing, traditional dishes!


On Saturday morning we woke up bright and early, eager to explore the city. We started our day with a visit to The Basilica of San Petronio and The Whispering Walls before heading to the Anatomical Theatre of the Archiginnasio.
