April 29th • Posted in Favourites
I’m typing this post a week in advance, so I feel legitimated to write about the “oh how time flies” cliché! It’s probably because my weeks are so hectic and full of work and stuff, that I feel like time is going by too fast (while the things I tick off the to-do list aren’t really…) or because Spring makes me very excited about plans and future, that I went into my blog archive to link posts and I felt it was yesterday I wrote a post that went live on February… and now it’s almost May… or that we book our travel in Rome and we’re heading off in a couple of days already!
But enough time-related rambles! Here are a few things I’ve loved during the month of April…
The Green Balm – MOA
I’ve been a cleansing balms lover for a very long time, but it was about a couple of years I haven’t bought any! I don’t remember how I found out about MOA – probably while I was stalking social medias as I remember me being all “oohh” and “aahh” when I discovered their website and placing an order 2 seconds later from my phone! And I bought a cleansing balm, yes!
Their Green Balm in the Daily Cleansing Ritual duo, to be precise! As all their products, their Green Balm is vegan and 100% natural; it features great oils for the skin like almond and coconut oil, promises to remove all the makeup without the help of any other products and it’s suitable for all skin types (although I avoid to apply it on my oily forehead)! I love that it’s thick and hydrating and the bamboo face cloth is special! Soft and such a pleasure to use!
With the excuse we were going to fly off to Rome this month, and the fact that my wardrobe felt a little bit naked after my latest Spring cleaning session, and also yes, the fact that ASOS was having their mid-season sales going on, I thought April was the perfect month to implement some new Spring staples into my wardrobe!
As soon as I spotted the Poppy Lux Samphia Blouse in the ASOS sales I knew I had to have it (if it sells out, check back in a few days – someone might return some, but I won’t!): the vintage pattern is perfect for springtime and brings a pop of colour into my monochrome wardrobe, while the pleated collar is the cutest thing – it reminds me of this petal collar blouse I can’t wait to wear this summer! I already know I’ll wear it on skirts and jeans and trousers all Spring long!
I’ve also dusted off my ASOS Lily Pad Nude Ballet Flats that I’ve been wearing non-stop this month as they pairs with literally everything and always make any outfit nice and put together with zero effort!
I’ve popped into IKEA (again!) this month and ended up buying some more stuff for the desk (a pretty vintage-y vase for fresh flowers included!), but I’ve fallen in love with their BAKAREN Phone Holder and thought it would look pretty perfect on my desk. I wasn’t wrong! I love it… It has a cable hole and everything, you know!
And, since I have had some difficulties with falling asleep lately, I’ve also been loving the L’occitane Relaxing Pillow Mist and to spray it all around the room a bit more than necessary, if I have to be completely honest! I love the sweet and herbal scent of lavender, bergamot and geranium paired with orange and mandarin – it’s lovely and calming and relaxing. If you are after a pillow/room mist, do yourself a favour and check this out!
That’s everything! As usual I love to discover new things, so let me know what’s on your April favourites list! x
