LUST LIST / APRIL
It's April. New month, new starts and of course, new stuff I'm lusting over.
It's a beautiful day here in London, the sun is shining, the birds are chirping and it finally feels like Spring has arrived. Thank heavens!
If you're new here, firstly a big hello, my 'lust list' is pretty self explanatory but it's basically just a list of all the things I've got my eye on this month. All of the below are links to where you can purchase each product - sorry (not sorry) for enabling...
BEAUTY & SKINCARE
As I said, it's definitely getting a bit more Spring like and I want that to start reflecting in my makeup choices. I'm going to TRY and put away my usual go-to's and I'm keen to invest into some more coral or soft pink shades. For example, I've got my eye on this Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush. Swooooooon.
I'm almost 25 and unfortunately am yet to find a foundation that turns my face into something magical... am I asking for too much?! However I have been using a tester sample of Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation and it's actually pretty damn impressive, it has good coverage, good staying power and they have a whole range of shades. I think this month I'm going to have to invest in a full bottle.
I'm very happy to say that for the first time in a very very very long time, my skin isn't erupting and is behaving fairly well which I very much appreciate. I've really toned down my skincare routine and am using products that are simple and that I know my skin loves. With that in mind, I do need a new La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo because I'm running low and genuinely can't live without the stuff. Holy grail without a doubt!
I hate Spring fashion just because it's so confused. There are still wooly jumpers lurking around but at the other end of the spectrum, all the pretty floaty floral numbers are adorning hangers. Which way do I sway?!
I actually didn't end up doing TOO much shopping last month - which is very unlike me - so this month I'm keen to invest in a few things.
Firstly, I really really really wanna get my hands on a slogan tee-shirt. I think they're super cool and can be so versatile; rock them with a leather skirt to edge it up or pair it with a pair of slouchy jeans and trainers for easy days. Here are a few that I'm lusting over:
I used to have a pair of black converse years and years ago whilst at University and lived in them. Unfortunately they got battered and I sadly had to throw them away and ever since I've toyed with the idea of getting a new pair but in white. As my style is evolving, of course I love a good Chelsea boot and a pair of heels, but there's something so effortlessly cool about rocking a pair of Converse.
I'm actually going to be re-decorating my bedroom this month as I'm moving into a new room, which really excites me. I've always been such an interiors lover so being let loose in places like Habitat or Heals is an absolute dream. I've already accumulated quite a few pieces over the past few years but I've got my eye on a few things to spruce things up a bit:
Wishing you all a fabulously sunny April & stay tuned for lots of exciting posts this month. Note that I'm now going to be posting on Tuesdays & Thursdays!
