Faves | April

Hola Munchkins!
I know I sound like such an ooooold lady, but hasn't time flown?!  The sun is out, and I was able to take alllll my pics in the garden in natural light for once!  Wonders will never cease!  Anyways, here are my April Faves!
It's May already eek!  Anyways, I am currently holed up with kidney stones, so thought I may as well distract myself with a little bloggy spurt.

First upppppppppppp something amazeballs and mucho expensivo - the Kevyn Aucoin Sculpting Powder in Medium.  Quite the ingenious little compact: no red, no orange, just a grey undertone that makes your cheeks look naturally slightly hollow as opposed to "hey look at me I just shoved a load of bronzer on to slim down my face."
My facial skin has been all kinds of weird this month - probably to do with the old kidney stones, so I'm working on repairing it and helping it back to health, mostly using my Clarisonic and the Antipodes Avocado and Rosehip Oil.  The Clarisonic, as I have stated many, many times, is a genius contraption - I am trying to recharge it on the ASAP each time it runs out as it really makes such a difference to my skin.  The Antipodes is a kind of accidental rediscover.  I was reading about Rosehip Oil and how it helps to even out skin tone and fade any marks, so resigned myself to buying the Trilogy Antioxidant+ Rosehip Oil, only to rummage through my ridiculously huge skincare stash and realise than the Antipodes also contained Rosehip.  Bingo!  I use this at night time when I don't use the Alpha H Liquid Gold, and I wake up with just healthy looking skin.
Body-wise, I actually have a favourite - shock, horror!  I am loving the Australian Bodycare Hand and Body Lotion.  I tend to have a bit of a nightmare on my thighs and upper arms after hair removal, but the antiseptic nature of this lotion means none of the usual problemos have occurred recently, which makes me quite the happy bunny.


TV-wise, I am loving the return of my fave Game of Thrones (also reading the books, which count as this month's book fave), as well as the new Da Vinci's Demons, which is such an interesting take on Leonardo Da Vinci's life, and Elementary as I do love me a little bit of any Sherlock!
And that is all for this month!
Hope you enjoyed!
Love A.x
