April favourites 2019

It’s been a bit of a quiet month as I’ve tried not to spend much money!

However, I have bought a few new things that I love and want to share with you all! Here’s what I have been loving this April..

You can find my previous favourite posts here:




Micro Needle/ Derma rolling 

This was one of my many TKMaxx purchases – every favourites post tends to have something from TKMaxx. I’d been reading about micro-needling on various different blogs and was intrigued by the idea. Micro needling can help:

Facial scaring

Stretch marks


Enlarged pores


I sometimes suffer from eczema on my face and so anything to potentially remove scars from my face is a bonus. In addition to this micro needling can help with wrinkles and as my 25th birthday is approaching I’m beginning to realise that I want to take care of my skin. Micro needling also encourages the production of collagen and helps skin to absorb skin-care products.

The derma roller that I purchased from TKMaxx only has 0.25 mm needles. There were ones with larger needles but they were more expensive and I was concerned about the idea of rolling needles over my face, so I stuck to the smaller ones. I have used this product a number of times and I love it. My favourite time to use it is after a face mask to help my skin absorb the remaining serum on my face.

I have found that my skin is plumper and clearer since I have begun using the product. I intend to continue using the derma rolling and possibly (funds allowing) increase the needle size.

Okay, this is a bit of an odd one for a favourites post but bare with me. This deodorant smells like summer in a can. I’m quite fussy about how my deodorant smells, I don’t like it to smell like deodorant. Is that weird? As soon as I saw this one I knew we would get on well. The scent is coconut and jasmine – it smells divine! The coconut smell brings back memories of being abroad on a beach and smothering myself in sun tan lotion.

I had to share this with you as in my opinion it is a game changer for deodorants.

I’ve used gradual tans on and off as I tend to go very pale over the winter. I’m not very confident about my legs and so I always struggle in early summer. I decided to pick up a new fake tan to see if it would boost my confidence a bit. This tanning mousse from St. Moriz is clear, it didn’t stain anything and I found very little/no streaking. I did use a tanning mitt, however I am by no means a fake tan expert so I am very impressed with the application of this product.

My natural tan is a little on the yellow side (not quite like the Simpsons, but you get the gist). Gradual tans seem to accentuate this and I always end up looking a little orang-er than I would have liked. This tan, however gave me a beautiful natural glow which can be built up. Definitely a fake tan that I will be re-purchasing!


That’s all for what I’ve been loving this month.

What have your favourites been?

      1. So once it’s rotated one turn it’s repeircing. Sounds a bit unsafe to me. Your 25 your man loves you. I’m old and worry about stuff like this. Lol. Didn’t even know the device existed this morning. Now I’m worried. Got to love an over thinking brain

      2. haha 😆 in theory your face should be clean to limit the transfer of bacteria. It’s been around for a number of years without any catastrophe ☺️


  1. TK Maxx is my favourite shop! Most my clothes, and things, are from there or Boundary Mills (occasionally ebay, like my dolphin stuff) or outlet shops. But primarily TK. On Sundays we (my sisters and I) go TK shopping to the tk’s nearby….
    I’ll look out for the derma rollers. Do you just roll it on your face? Sounds scary to be honest, but I’m happy to try it.

    1. It’s so much fun to visit and see what bargains they have! ☺️ You just roll them on your skin when you’ve applied some product. They look a lot scarier than they are 😆
