No offence to April, but never has a month moved so slowly. My calendar was chock full of events, from celebrating the Easter holidays to a two week intensive university prac assessment to just making long over due plans and catching up with friends. But my god am I struggling to understand how those 30 days wasn’t 300. Luckily, a busy month also brings a whole new batch of favourites. From 80s cult classics to makeup brushes, to beachside sporting venues and concert arenas, April had a little bit of everything.

Since I was having the time of my life in Italy, Paris and London in January and celebrated my birthday throughout February, life was bound to bring me back to earth at some point – that point being March! My final year of university started, but between fretting about impending prac assessment and locking down internships, I still found time to discover a new beauty holy grail, watch my favourite skinny legend snatch the crown, welcome the tenth season of my favourite show and see one of my most loved artists live in concert. This monthly instalment is definitely quality over quantity of things mentioned, so give this post a “like” if you enjoy it and let’s get into my March Favourites!
February has come to a close and followed in the footsteps of January – it was just as incredible! From celebrating my birthday, to celebrating another blogging milestone, from hopping to one international world city to the next, to discovering and rediscovering some beauty hits, to devouring the pages of a new book on the flight home, February was filled with a little – or a lot – of everything! Since I did a sentimental, less materialistic wrap up for January and the end of 2018 was filled with my yearly favourites, I’m so happy to sit down and chat about my February because I haven’t done a good ol’ fashioned monthly favourites like this since November! Where does the time go? Nevertheless, make yourself comfortable, settle in, and I hope you enjoy my February Favourites!

January has left us and takes with it one of the most memorable, incredible and valuable months I’ve ever experienced. For all of January I was overseas studying at the European Institute of Design in Florence, Italy! I had an amazing time embarking on that journey and the trip is something I’ll take with me forever. I thought I’d dedicate my entire January Favourites to it, because instead of trying out new makeup or discovering new tv shows to watch, I was going on day trips to different Italian cities every weekend, tasting some of the best food, and creating amazing memories with new friends.

We’ve entered the most festive month of the year, which means it’s time for my November Favourites! Before I start decorating our annual gingerbread house and plugging in all my fairy lights to celebrate Christmas, I need to run through all the things that made November such an incredible month. From falling in love with some new heart shaped fashion pieces (get it), to having both a digital and real life spring clean, to seeing one of my favourite drag queens live, November shaped up to be one of my favourite months of the year!

Finally I can start a monthly favourites post without writing the cliché phrase ‘where is the time going?‘ because October, as wonderful as it was, felt like it was never ending! When I look back at the things I did at the start of October, it genuinely feels like I did them three months ago, not just a couple of weeks ago. I think that’s because October was such a transitional month for me and, instead of using my new free time to lounge around like I thought I would be doing, I ended up utilising my time well and made a lot of progress on life projects. In 31 days I handed in gigantic final assignments, finished another year of university, attended the first journalism university ball, successfully produced a month of Halloween themed blog posts and, to top it off, planned an overseas holiday. And, of course, discovered some beauty and fashion favourites along the way. So much to discuss!

September is done and dusted and frankly I’m quite happy to wave it goodbye! The first half of my month was filled with dread and anxiety in the lead up to completing two weeks of prac for university, and the second half was surviving it (which I actually enjoyed! So much unnecessary stress!) Between all of that however, I was able to become obsessed with some new additions to my wardrobe, discover some new beauty favourites, finally buy some accessories I have been debating over for months and reached another blogging goal of mine!
