A Very Late April Favourites

Finally, my April favourites post. It's almost a month late but that's cool..right? If anything it means I've loved all of this stuff for that little bit longer, so you know it's good!

Sleek Contour Palette in Light

Sleek Contour Palette in Light.
I love this. In my attempts to refashion myself some cheekbones I recently picked up this handy little kit on Cloud 10 Beauty and have been loving it. A richly pigmented matte bronzer (a little goes a long way) with an accompanying pretty highlighter and all for the bargainous price of 9.95. Love it.

The blogging world has been alight with the love for these lipstick/gloss/stain hybrids although I originally avoided getting one as I generally like to wait and see whether these sort of hyped-up products are still as loved once they've been out for a while. Anyways, reviews were good and I have to say, I love this stuff. The colour is just immense. Possibly my favourite red of all time, and that's saying something for me, given my love of red shades. I will say that lasting power isn't great with this, I completely destroyed a china tea cup after applying it but a bit of reapplication is worth it for the gorgeous colour! And I got it for 5 euro something, so cheap as chips too!


Fancy glittery Shoes, Penneys
Yes, I'm aware I didn't need another pair of green hued shoes, but I had originally wanted these when they were full price, but held myself back (I'm a shopping ninja in some ways) and good job I did too because these were then reduced to 7 euro! Huzzah!


Knitting Kit!
This was a rather lovely gift, complete with everything I need to start knitting and there's lots of handy sewing stuff in there too. Plus- look at the cuteness of the outer material!! 


The Sartorialist and The Sartorialist Closer, Scott Schuman
Ooh, I love these books. Another fantastic present, these have taken up permanent residence on my bedside table so I've been flicking through them on a regular basis to get inspiration for my own wardrobe (although clearly I'm fooling myself, because I'll never be as cool as any of these people). Schuman is a photographer and runs thesartorialist.com, where he showcases the outfits and style of random people on the street and celebrities all around the world. The photographs are absolutely stunning and both books have me lusting after the wardrobes of complete strangers, which is fairly impressive. A must for fashion lovers. (Also, Kanye West has his own chapter. Good times).

    1. They are indeed, thank you! It's embarrassingly pouty but I think the red makes them look bigger somehow! :)
