Happy April indeed! I for one am thrilled March is over - it's not been the best month. I've not been very well (I'm still not really to be honest!) and life has just been very stressful. I've had lots of family time which has been lovely though; and I've also been able to go to Brighton and had a lovely day out in London doing touristy bits. Paddy and I have also finally booked our holiday for this year, HURRAH! God knows I need one! There have been LOTS of little things I have really enjoyed over the past 4 weeks, so here ya go...


I bought the DVD for my brother for Christmas, but I've already stolen it and watched it several times. Paddy and I watched Legend last year on the plane to Brazil, and both of us absolutely loved it! Tom Hardy plays both of the Kray twins, Reggie and Ronnie, who were a pair of gangsters in the East End of London in the 60s. It's SUCH a good film and would highly recommend (plus it's Tom Hardy. So....)

Alarm - Anne-Marie

I'll admit I had no idea this song existed (I'm not hip and with it when it comes to chart music nowadays, for shame) until I saw it performed on The Voice (more on that in a bit). But it's a corker of a tune, and so bloomin' catchy that I've had it on repeat for ages.

It Ain't Me - Kygo feat. Selena Gomez

Thank the Lord for Spotify is all I can say. I occasionally put on one of the Spotify playlists when I'm at work and fed up of my usual music, and this tune was on one of them (I forget which I'm afraid). Anyways, I loveeeee it. I've loved Selena for years and have actually found her collabs with EDC-type artists have been some of my fave songs of hers, and this is no exception! It's very chilled and always makes me think I should be on a beach - preferably with a cocktail in hand but I'm not fussy - when I listen to it.

The Voice UK

Ok ok I'm not a fan of reality shows (except a bit of MIC and the odd episode of KUWTK, guilty) but one random weekend in March, Paddy and I actually found ourselves watching a repeat of one episode and really enjoyed it?! This is weird because I never watch it and he is just not a reality show kind of person, but we got really into it! Will.I.Am cracks me up, and J-Hud is beautiful and I want to hug her.

Maybelline Fit Me Matte & Poreless Foundation
I've seen a few people rave about this one now, so I figured I'd give it go. I love it! It's got medium but buildable coverage - which I wasn't sure of at first as I usually like a bit heavier coverage - and my skin is loving having something a bit more breathable and natural on. It's made the look more glowy which I'm really liking for spring/summer time!

Quay Australia

The sunglasses from this brand are beyond beautiful. I've got 3 pairs (all bought in March) and I'm obsessed. They're such good quality, not that expensive (about £40 or so per pair) compared to designer pairs, and come in so many beautiful styles and colours that are getting me soooo excited for summer. My favourite pair so far are my tortoise-shell coloured sunglasses in the style called My Girl.


A bit late to the game on this one, but I've finally started watching Broadchurch at season 3 (the last one) and I'm hooked! I won't go on about it but it's amazing and I love David Tennant and Olivia Coleman. Watch if you haven't already!!
