April Roundup



April is the month of somewhat excessive chocolate consumption and new seasons. Shoutout to the Autumn chill in the air. April was a bit quieter over on the blog for various reasons. I ended up being quite busy and we've had work going on at our house so filming videos is a bit trickier at the moment. Hopefully I'll be back into doing those next month. Anyway, here's what you may have missed over on the blog this month.

An introduction to Essence: European cosmetics brand Essence is much more readily available in NZ now and can be found in most Farmers stores. I'd never tried any of their products until quite recently and I found some absolute gems among their range. All their products are very affordable too which is great, especially since a lot of overseas brands, even the cheaper ones are quite pricey here.

Sydney to-do list-I'm off to Sydney next week and I'm quite excited, not gonna lie. I compiled a little to-do list of what I want to do whilst I'm over there. If you have any recommendations of things to do or places that have to be visited, let me know.

Autumn skincare update-It's only recently that my skin seems to have left it's mirror-shine days behind *knock on wood* and so I've found myself reaching for products that are more hydrating than anything else. Most of my skincare routine's stayed the same but these new additions are going down a treat. If you grab one thing from this post, make it this

Products I have used up + new beauty things-This month's video. The title says it all really. I used up things and talked about them. There's also some new bits from The Body Shop in there which'll keep the tea enthusiasts happy and an interesting product from Mac.

All I Know Now-Thanks to Carrie Hope Fletcher. I was lucky enough to be sent this book for review before release date. Spoiler alert: I loved it. Check out my review and keep an eye out for another Carrie-themed post sometime soon!

-What posts did you enjoy reading in April?

*I hope your week's have been rad so far. It's a short working week here in NZ, although I still went to my part-time job on Monday. Then yesterday I was in the city for a meeting and an obligatory Moustache cookie. Today's a bit more chilled and I'm just catching up on things really. Nothing exciting! I'll be back on Friday with another The Week post so I'll see you cool cats then x.
