5 Monthly Favourites – April

5 Monthly Favourites – April

Hey !

The 28th is here, it’s time for me to show you my Favourites of this month ! ?
Check out my previous favourites here, on my March Favourites Post ?

So, for my April favorites, here is what I chose :

 

1.  Metallic Copper Sneakers

Call it copper or Rose Gold, I love it either way !
I found them in Citadium in Paris, it’s a kind of big mall full of cool clothing brands, shoes, accessories, but also food from overseas (like snacks from the US or from Japan). I can’t wait to use them in an outfit post !

2. Easter

I know, I know, I’m a victim of the consumer society. I can’t help but looooove every themed holiday there is, especially if it involves sweets and chocolate ! Plus, this year we got to actually celebrate it with the picnic I showed you a few posts ago, It was such a great time. Aren’t those eggs the cutest ? ? They’re decorative eggs I found at Hema, inside them there was a cute chocolate. I wanted to take a picture of it, but I ate it. I’m so sorry.

3. Kitty Bodysuit 

Another fashion item I fell in love with recently : this cute cat body. I used to hate those because the first time I tried one I thought it was so uncomfortable. But this one is so soft, I don’t even feel it ! Plus : it has a little tail in the back ! ?
Sorry I forgot to take a picture from behind. But you’ll see the tail when I make an outfit out of it !

4. Walnut Flour

This is the best culinary discovery I made this month. While looking for a way of making some tasty gluten free bread for my mother, she had the brilliant idea of suggesting walnut flour. And it turned out so delicious !
Here you can check out the recipe of my Zucchini, Walnut & Goat Cheese Bread. Its particular nutty taste really inspired me, I’m going to bake so much things walnut flavored now ! ???

5. Clinique Anti-Blemish

Honestly, if as me you have a skin prone to acne, this is a must-have. I had another anti blemish before but they stopped producing it, so I looked for a new one and found this ! I already liked the Clinique brand for their oily skin range, I use their oil free foundation almost everyday.
I love that their products never smell of any perfume or artificial scent, there is nothing redundant or unnecessary in them, just the elements you need for your skin. Plus : it’s not as expensive as other “well known” brands. And of course, it works very well !✨
I put it at night to contain the damage until next morning.

• Bonus Favourite •

Not an “official” Favourite of this month, BUT : I have watched Luke Cage with Victor (my boyfriend) since many people told me it was great in my last March Favourites. And we loved it ! It’s honestly way better than Iron Fist, the plot is well made and very interesting, the actors are AMAZING, so many expressions and feelings are shown onto their faces. It’s a bit darker, and less caricatural than IF, and the shots are really neat, even artistic sometimes. It has it all, it’s entertaining, it’s well shot, the acting is perfect. Really thank you for the suggestion guys ! ?

That was all for this month !

For the next posts I think I’m going to focus a bit on the awards that I was nominated on ?
Do you have any things you particularly enjoyed to do or to use during this current month ?

    Ooh Luke Cage is such a good show. If you haven’t seen it yet, I would recommend Jessica Jones too ☺

    Have you tried Clinique’s chubby sticks? They’re lipsticks that are more like balm with intense color in a thick crayon. I love them! Easy to put on and take off. Plus, no need for extra Chapstick or moisturizing your lips cause they’re really nourishing (:

      It really is ! it adds a nut flavour that tastes so good ? I bought it in an organic shop in Paris, but if there is no shop in your town that sells it you can find it on amazon : http://amzn.to/2oN22IZ
      Have a nice day ! ❤️

    You should check out Black Mirror! I love that series, my fave episodes are Be Right Back and White Bear. Also, the bunny chocolate is too cute to eat

      I’ve already seen it ! ? I love it but I hate it too, It’s so well made and cool, but at the same time I’m so inconfortable while watching it… I can’t help it ! ?

    So catchy oriana, even the walnut flour

    I love Jessica Jones, I keep putting off watching it so that I don’t run out (weird psychology, I know). I’ve got Luke Cage on my To Watch as well
