April Favourites


I suppose this is closer to a ‘this year thus far’ favourites roundup, because I have been rather tardy in the filming business. So many things have happened recently, and as this blog is more of a personal hobby than a profit-generating job I tend to push it to the back burner. So, before I go into my recent favourites I will catch you up with my life.

01. I work at Sephora. Yes, the dream has come true; I am training to be a skincare consultant at Sephora. That means I can do what I love, which is chat about skincare with anyone and everyone, every day. Yes, please. As an employee of Sephora I do have to make it clear that, as always, the views expressed on this blog and anywhere else on social media are my own opinions; not of Sephora’s. I do not speak for Sephora, nor any of its brands/vendors. I have always refused compensation for product reviews here, and I will continue to do so, but I may mention a product that I received as gratis from Sephora or a brand during the normal functions of my job. As always it will be clearly noted as such.

02. I moved. The changes, I know, but I am now living in a house to be shared with a few other people. During the summer, however, it will be just me and that hopefully means more videos and content here on the blog. I also have my own fully-functional kitchen, so prepare yourselves for the return of baking. I have a few ideas for content already, so keep your eyes peeled.

I believe that to be everything of importance, so on to the favourites. I have a wide assortment of things to share, from skincare and cosmetics to housewares and literature. As always, you can watch the YouTube video here or skip directly to the links below.
