My Favourite Things In April

There were quite a few purchases made in April that I'd been agonising over for months before finally shelling out and purchasing them. Zoeva and Essie, both well-known brands in the blogging community, had been so highly (and frequently) recommended that it was basically inevitable that I would try them out eventually. Neither were insanely expensive, so I was happy to take a gamble and buy them. Luckily these blind buys paid off!

The main attraction in April is far and away the Zoeva rose gold brushes. Like Diptyque candles, it’s a total cliché at this point for a blogger to own these brushes, but what can I say – I was in need of new brushes, and for roughly $100 I received a nice collection that will hopefully last me quite a while. They are absolutely stunning to see in person, these photos really don’t capture just how pretty they are. Cliché or not, they’re a great purchase and sometimes you just can’t fight fate.

Since I am no longer working in the city, I have stopped my near-daily window shopping at Gorman. I’ve spoken about them quite a bit here, but for those who don’t know Gorman is an Australian clothing label that makes the most incredible pieces with interesting patterns and design. They’re a little on the pricy side, but I like to buy a couple of key pieces each season to see me through. Anyway, I lost all self-control in April and ended up buying quite a few pieces: the pyramid dress, jigsaw trousers, and blue cropped jumper. The dress is one of the most stunning things I have ever seen, it’s so unique and can easily be dressed up or down. The trousers and jumper are already a work staple, and will probably be wearing them all throughout winter and into spring.

It’s a beautiful thing when the new issues of Kinfolk and Cereal are released within a week of each other. Kinfolk is the ultimate life curation manual: totally unachievable, but oh-so-pretty to read. I find Cereal a lot less pretentious and with a lot more substance. Definitely grab yourself a copy if you can – Melbourne is featured quite heavily, which was wonderful to see!

Finally, I bought my first ever Essie nail polishes! Yet another brand that is pretty much a blogging cliché, but I am absolutely stunned at the quality of them. I applied it a week ago (with no topcoat) , and there is only one tiny chip on one of my nails. It’s amazing! I doubt I could buy any other brand at this point, I’m completely on the Essie band wagon now. I bought two shades - Master Plan and Island Hopping, and I'm in love! Unfortunately now I feel the urge to purchase all my favourite nail colours from them, which could potentially be hazardous to my bank account….
