Hey guys! Happy Easter! Today is Monday, so it's time for some favourites! March is ending and I've been loving a lot of things, so I wanted to share them with you. I hope you'll enjoy my first monthly favourites post and you'll have an amazing week! Make sure to check my last post, a collab with El, as well ^^ Let's go!
1- Career of Evil, by Robert Galbraith (a.k.a. J.K. Rowling)
I don't know if you've heard of the Cormoran Strike books, but just in case you haven't, after Rowling had that huge success with Harry Potter and was judged harshly on The Casual Vacancy, she felt a lot of pressure and didn't enjoy writing any more. That's why she decided to write a mistery novel called The Cuckoo's Calling under the pseudonym Robert Galbraith. It had amazing reviews and eventually the identity of the writer was leaked. Career of Evil is her third book of the series, and can I tell you... I loved the other two, but this one is THE BEST. It's sheer brilliance. From the characters to the plot, to the adrenaline, to the language, to everything... this is one of the best novels I've EVER read and I can't get enough of it. I strongly, strongly recommend it if you like mistery novels, you won't be disappointed!
2- Essence's "All Eyes On Me" mascara
I've had this for a while, but I haven't used it until recently. I like it for reasons (I know) others won't: it doesn't give your lashes a looooot of extra volume. Usually, when I put it on, I'm not wearing any other makeup, so it would look weird to have huge lashes with nothing else hahah it just accentuates them, which is something I really like; it's really cheap, it's not sticky and it lasts all day long. I love it!
3- Grumpy Cat PJs
This might be my favourite overall hahah I. Absolutely. Love. It! I bought these PJs on Primark and the moment I catched a glimpse of them I knew they had to be mine. I absolutely adore Grumpy Cat and I can't get enough of it! They are also really comfy and perfect for Spring. And finally, the quote on the T-shirt ("This is my happy face") is perfect for when I wake up hahaha
4- Bonté's Body Cream
I've told you before about this brand: it's from a Spanish supermarket called Clarel and their products are usually amazing and SO cheap. I bought their body cream on the "Romantic Orchid" scent and it smells amazing, I apply it after my shower and it leaves my skin feeling so moisturised! I don't know if I have any Spanish readers, but if I do, check these products out!
5- Bonté's MED range for greasy skin
Again products from Bonté. My skin is quite greasy (not as much as it was in the past) and I need to keep a daily skincare routine. I stopped because it wasn't that bad and the products were too expensive, but then I discovered this ones and I've been using them since! I own the Purifying Tonic, the Facial Moisturizer and the Purifying Attack. I especially like this last one, because it does a direct action on the spots you have: you apply it on them and it dries them so they go away really quickly.
6- American reality singing competitions
This one is a little random, but seriously, they are amazing this year! The last season of American Idol is about to end and my early favourite (Sonika Vaid, check her cover of Bring Me To Life!) is already out, but the 4 people left are so good! And don't get me started on The Voice. It's my favourite reality singing competition format and this year the singers are SO good! I keep downloading the covers and I go crazy over them. Love love love it!
So that's it! Let me know if you share one of my favourites and if not, tell me what favourites have you had this month! Love you!
A big big hug,
