Goodbye March! Hello April!
March has been such an odd month… I’m not sure about yours but for me, it’s just been everywhere. I’ve never experienced a month like it, I know you know what I’m talking about. You just need to keep moving and think happy things, that’s one reason why I’ve been able to keep up my blogging game. Before moving forward to April, now is a great time to review what I did in March with my Monthly Favourites. Although, not a lot happened! My Favourites is exactly that, what I loved in March.
It’s time to reflect on March.
Netflix has been killing it recently! They have some amazing programmes and movies you should definitely watch. I pretty much watch something day in, day out on Netflix. I have been truly addicted to some, weekends are great as I pretty much watch a whole season in one sitting. Before you realise there are no more episodes and you’re waiting five months for the next season.
The last time I shared my Favourite Netflix Series was back in December 2017! A lot has happened and changed since then, now is a perfect time to share my Current Netflix Top Picks. I’m really excited to share these with you today, please let me know down in the comments if you’ve watched any of these yourself. They’re all pretty different from one another, I love the diversity of programmes.
Moving from Winter to Spring is probably the wrong time of year, it’s great watching Netflix during the colder months. It’s lovely sitting on the sofa, with a blanket, maybe even cuddling up with your loved one and watching a movie on Netflix, or even binge-watching one of their many series. Now it’s starting to warm up, I will be watching less so hopefully nothing much good and exciting comes out!
Goodbye March, Hello April!
How was your March? I hope you had a lovely start to Spring. Today I am going to be reflecting on the Goals I set myself at the beginning of March. Then creating new Goals for the upcoming month of April. Creating new Goals each month helps you to stay on top of what you want to achieve for the year. There’s something about it that makes me more determined to achieve them.
Hello there April!
I am so excited for the upcoming month. I have some great things planned, but before we can move forward to the new month, now is a great time to reflect on the previous month. I love doing this by sharing my Monthly Favourites with you! It’s time to reflect on what happened in March. It’s not until the end of the month that I realised exactly what I’ve been up to and the products I’ve been loving.

during the month.
Now I know to most people believe we’ve had Spring for a couple of weeks. For me, I believe 20 March 2019 is the first day Spring. We’ve had an interesting start to March, with Storm Freya gracing us with her presence. We’re on Day 6 of the Astronomical Spring, I thought I would continue the theme of Self-Care and looking after yourself this Spring, by sharing a couple of Self-Care ideas.
Last week, I shared with you my face mask collection, a perfect addition to any pamper evening. Spring is the perfect time to reevaluate your routine and add in new products, also there’s something about Spring and the freshness of everything. Animals are being born, flowers are blooming and it’s the perfect time to think about yourself. Spring is a magical time of the year.

🌸 Hello first day of Spring! 🌸
A pamper evening isn’t a relaxing one without a bubble bath and a face mask. I am coming late to the face mask party, it’s only recently that I’ve fallen in love. My last trip to Wilko was successful, I managed to grab a small selection of 7th Heaven Easy Peel Masks at just £1 each. I also have the Deep Cleansing Bubble Mask Blueberry from the Autumnal Box Swap with Samantha. J.
Today I thought I would share with you my face mask collection and what I’ve been loving recently. These are all a must addiction to make a perfect pamper evening. I’m amazed at the prices of these masks! It’s perfect for your pamper evening, you can get a lot for your money at £1 each. The Deep Cleansing Bubble Mask Blueberry from Primark is even less at 80p. I have heard good things about 7th Heaven, I’m very excited to try them all.

It’s February, can you believe how quick the year is going? I have had a lovely January, I hope the past month has treated you well. Today I am going to be reflecting on the Goals I set myself at the beginning of January. I love reflecting and creating new Goals each month, there’s something about it that makes me more determined to achieve them.
There are no resolutions for me, it’s all about setting Goals to succeed throughout the year. My Monthly Goals always relate to the bigger picture of my Personal Goals and Blogging Goals for the year. I love creating new Goals, it’s just something about them, it also makes sure you’re on target and also it’s helpful to keep remembering the bigger picture and those Goals.
I am pretty addicted to purchasing bath products, bath time for me needs to be relaxing and there’s nothing better than dropping in a bath bomb. There are a lot of bath bombs to choose from and one of my favourite places to shop from is LUSH. Since trying my first bath bomb last December, I have surely become addicted and now I like picking up a small collection to treat myself.
In my Monthly Favourites // August, I shared with you my trip to Nottingham and the art trail Hoodwinked 2018 while wandering around I came across that oh so familiar scent of LUSH. I had to pop inside and see if there was anything new and exciting, I came across the Blooming Beautiful giftset that screamed Spring and relaxation. Nothing else took my fancy so Blooming Beautiful it was.
I think there’s a theme going on here, recently I visited Westgate in Oxford, a recently remodelled Shopping Centre. Now, it opened late last year, perfect timing for Christmas! For an exploration though, not good timing, I’m not a fan of busy and crowded places, I’ve said to Yasmine since I heard about it’s re-opening, we should go and visit. Finally, we had the opportunity to go visit!
I’m not going to go too much in depth about Westgate and my adventure there, as you’ll see from the title, this post isn’t about that. Some could say it’s about something so much better! That’s right I’m talking about LUSH, somewhere I’ve become addicted too since leaving Plymouth actually. We’re not lucky to have one in Aylesbury, our closest is either Oxford or Milton Keynes. Depending on what way you want to go!

Can you believe the weather we’ve had recently!? Finally, Spring has come to the UK. It seems like we’ve been waiting forever for it to warm up, it wasn’t that long ago that the UK was six feet under snow and we grounded to a halt. Now with this mini heatwave, everyone has been enjoying themselves out in the sun. Whilst it’s nice to be outdoors, enjoying the weather, it’s important to stay protected from the harmful UV rays which can cause skin cancer.
There are a lot of different sunscreens to chose from and this can make it confusing, to help you understand the best sunscreen for your skin, there are different guides out there. Especially as they aren’t all created equally and some have better protection than others. With having fair skin, I am always using sunscreen as I’m more sensitive to the sun and I’ve learnt the hard way in the past. Having sunburn can be really painful and increases the risk of skin cancer.
