This Month I...

May definitely creeped up on me! But April was a favourite month of mine, I managed to see a few friends, drink a few cocktails and spend my monies on more beauty products and clothes. I hope April was a fab month for you too and that May brings us sunshine and more Bank Holidays!

This Month I.... ate avocado and egg on toast! Sorry if you usually cringe at the sight of another avocado on toast Instagram (I do too) but I think this is my best breakfast yet. It's my favourite meal of the day and besides porridge and muesli during the working week, the weekends I get a little experimental. 

I'll have it with wholemeal and seedy bread, lightly toasted, with half an avocado roughly chopped and spread across it. Then two scrambled eggs and a pinch of Lakeland's Good With Everything Herb Sea Salt - which is seriously yum - on top.

This Month I... bought a load of beauty products. One weekend I went a little crazy in Boots and Superdrug, but I did manage to get only what I needed and intended to buy. I did a full haul post here if you fancy catching up. The best buy is definitely the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge, proof that investing in the tools as well as makeup is important. 

This Month I... read Mansfield Park by Jane Austen. I've read the classic Austen books, like Pride & Prejudice and Sense & Sensibility and Mansfield Park is another one to tick off the list. At first it was really hard to get into the plot, mainly because Austen drags it out for so long (why say one sentence when you can say a whole paragraph?!). But it got dramatic this week and I only have a few chapters left to finish!

This Month I... watched Thirteen by BBC Three. I'm not the usual type to binge watch a program in one day and basically hibernate until I've reached the end, but Thirteen totally had me hooked. There's 5 episodes, each around 1 hour long, each getting more complicated and gripping as you continue to watch. I started watching on my iPad on my way home from work at 6pm and didn't finish until around 11pm. A top recommendation from me, but be warned, you'll want to watch it all.

This Month I... experienced the British Library, my first facial and cocktails at Steam & Rye! April has been a pretty good month for me, and I'm surprised how much I managed to fit in. I went to the British Library with my friend to visit the Alice In Wonderland exhibition, which celebrated 150 years since it's first publication. Next up was my first facial experience, that I blogged about here, which my skin was so in need of! Then I ended the month with fun cocktails at Steam & Rye for a friend's birthday. (Yes that is a cocktail in a popcorn box...)

What was your highlight this April? What are your plans for May?

Thanks for reading!
