April | 2016

Is it honestly time for another roundup post already? I'm starting to get a little bit scared with how fast time is moving guys, I don't like it! 

I FINALLY finished the Dancing Jax trilogy and even though I was reading it super slowly, I really enjoyed it. I did feel slightly underwhelmed with the ending as I'm not sure what I was expecting but I kind of hoped for more, although I still enjoyed the series as a whole. If any of you have read that series please let me know what you thought of the third book! Finishing that series meant I could move onto my next reading goal of the year which is to re-read the harry potters. I've read the first one and am currently coming to the end of the second so I reckon reading will go pretty well in May! 

I seem to have been getting through skincare products quite quickly this month and have been purchasing some more so I do have a skincare haul coming soon! I'm trying to create a skincare routine that really works for me and I have been noticing a lot of improvements with my skin since I started taking care of it properly. 
As you will have seen in my Spring Makeup look, I purchased the Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara this month which I actually have a full review for coming on sunday so make sure to check back for that!

I went My Chemical Romance crazy this month. I realised that I didn't have any of their songs on my iPod so of course I went on a youtube marathon and ending up spending hours reliving old memories through their songs! My favourites are probably SING and Mama, but it's so hard to choose!

Sky movies brought back the Star Wars channel this month so I've been re-watching all of them! I don't think I've actually watched that many new films this month. I relived my teenager years the other night and watched The Perfect Man in bed with junk food. It was a wonderful nostalgic evening!

I went back to uni on April 11th so I've been thrown back into studies and deadlines this month. I also got the marks back for the essays I submitted last month and I was very happy with my results! It was then my sisters 24th birthday on the 17th so that meant a weekend of food, parties and celebrations! May is going to bring with it 3 more deadlines in the next few weeks but then I will have finished my entire first year of university and summer will begin so I am super excited to get to work and get stuff done!

I uploaded an entire post talking through my goals for 2016 last week so if you want to check that out you can do so HERE. I'm doing pretty well, I just need to keep going and try my best to get them done!
