Monthly Favourites #1 - April

Hello everyone!

I'm going to try and do a monthly faves each month from now on, as there is so much that I love each month and just need to share! I'm going to try and keep away from beauty things and do the little categories I've chosen below!!

I have been addicted to Shania Twain songs all month, so this one has to take the #1 spot! This was one of the songs I listened to on repeat for a whole week when it was first released, and I've done the same this month!

TV Show
A show that Murtogg has got me onto the past month is The Office (USA version). I've never seen it before but as it was on Netflix, I've given it a go! I love it so much, and I'm already on season 4. I'm also in love with Jim & Pam's relationship.

I've never seen any of the Fast and the Furious movies at all, so these have been pretty good to watch in light of the new one coming out. I've seen the first four so far but can't see me catching up in time before the cinema stops showing it! It's my kind of film though so have LOVED this!!

Random Section
So I'm choosing a clothing item for this month! I've got a serious addiction and obsession with plaid shirts right now. Not exaggerating on the fact I have 11 now, two of which were bought this month. Peacocks have some great ones in store for £12 so I've bought 5 from them so far...

Hope you enjoyed these faves for April! What have you loved this month from each category? Let me know! Hope you have a great day and keep safe!

John Frieda Shampoo and Conditioner Review

Hello everyone!

I've been getting a lot more into hair products over the past couple of months now, and these beauties from John Frieda are something I've been enjoying! The shampoo and conditioner are both £5.99 from Boots right now! I was given the travel sized ones for a Christmas gift and had to go out and buy these big ones as the small ones ran out so fast!

A bit pricey for my liking, but I bought them anyway and hoped they were good. The travel sized ones only lasted for a week as the formula is pretty thick, so didn't get to try it for as long as I'd wanted!

They both smell like a classic hair salon, but that doesn't bother me! The shampoo is a thick, clear product and the conditioner is the same, but white! After using these, I'd blow dry my hair upside down to help with volume.

It left my hair feeling nice and smooth and a little more bouncy at the roots, but not much of a visible difference. If I use it for a whole week or so, there is a lot more visible volume at the crown and front of the hair line, so all in all, I love it. It's not something I'll buy all the time due to the price, but definitely something to keep an eye on when sales are on!

Have you tried this and what did you think of it? Let me know! Hope you have a great day and keep safe :)

Collection Extreme 24 Hour Felt Tip Eye Liners

Hello everyone!

It's no secret how much I love eye makeup products, or my love for Collection's products.  These eye liners come in four colours - black, blue, purple and teal! I have all of them, but these are the two I want to talk about to day.

You can get these from Boots for £2.99 each. The black one is used everyday and I've yet to use the blue one to speak about it!

These are lush. I love the purple one more than the teal one as it looks a lot better with my green eyes! The teal one is honestly more green than teal in m opinion, but I love it regardless!

I wear them a lot, but my only quibble is that these two colours take AGES to remove. I've used miscellar water and eye makeup remover, but it takes a good two/three days for this to be off my eyelids completely. Usually I used the black one for a few days afterwards just so it doesn't look so odd!

Overall, they are really easy to use and apply and I'd totally buy them again as they are that amazing!

What do you think of these kind of eyeliners? A fan or not? Let me know! Hope you have a great evening and keep safe :)
