Pre-April showers

Hello again! I've been in a bit of a confusing place this month due to coming off my medication for a few days, meaning some days have been zombie-ish, others incredibly anxious. Plus the weather doesn't seem to know what it's doing haha! I just wanted to take this time though to say a big thankyou to my lovely followers! I'm now up to 400 on GFC and am so sad about the rumours Google will get rid of it. Guess I'll have to get BlogLoving! :)
The things I've reached for most this month are definitely handcreams; there's been blizzard-like conditions for days where I live, so a deep nourishing cream has been much needed during this wintry spell. Also some new chance discoveries that I've fallen for...

1. Rituals 'Magic Touch' - Whipped Body Cream in 'Cherry Blossom & Rice Milk'
I've only just rediscovered this after abandoning it in my draw, but it's even beat S&G's 'Hand Food' for me at the moment. I love the calming summery smell and it hydrates my hands really nicely. I like that the texture is really light and whipped, and reminds me of squirty cream!

2. M&S's Autograph EDT in 'Inspire'
I never really go for the fragrance aisle at M&S; they tend to be a bit floral and grannyish for me, but I went shopping with my mum a few weeks back and was really drawn to this little bottle. It's quite floral and sweet but totally reminds me of Ghost fragrances, it's got that sort of rose/Turkish Delight feel about it and I was totally smitten. It's cheaper aswell at just a fiver, so next time you're in M&S do check them out, they have a lovely range of perfumes!

3. Percy&Reed Shampoo in 'Colour & Shine'
Got this - I think - with this month's Glamour magazine and was really chuffed as I've always wanted to give P&R's products a go. It claims to make your hair super shiny and I've definitely been noticing a difference; it also seems to make my hair more manageable right after I've washed it which is nice :) It's replaced my Herbal Essences and I would love to repurchase, though I wish you could get more in a bottle.

4. Coconut Blush Bath bombs/creamers in Geranium and Ylang Ylang/Patchouli
This was a random gift from a friend and I was interested to see if the bath bombs could top Lush's in terms of performance. I hadn't heard of the company before but they're based in the Peak District and make these sweet little handmade bath treats. I was pleasantly surprised as I wasn't expecting them to be so softening on the skin, they're amazing! No you don't get the whoop bam fizz of Lush bombs but they're so calming and pretty with little flower petals and lovely oils :)

What are you loving this month? Will you be moving to BlogLovin'? ♥
