March Favourites | Monthly Favouites

Hello beauties! 

The month of March just ended and that means it's time for another monthly favourites! This month I only/almost only tried fitness/gym products because I'm now going to the gym at least 3-4 times a week - what a progress! - and I needed to try a few things.

The first one is a product that I posted here on my blog in January and it's the gym top and bottom snake print from Primark, and OMG how I love them! Not only do they look cool but the leggings have a part in them that is covered in some kind of "breathing net" that can help the skin breath while working out. BEST THING EVER. 
The second and third products are 2 brands of shampoo and conditioner that I bought to try while showering in the gym. The first one is by the brand Le Petit Marseillais and I like it a lot. It leaves my hair super smooth, well nourished and smells amazing! And because the packaging is small it doesn't take a lot of space in my gym bag which is a plus one! The second brand is names Cosmia  and I've never heard from it until the beginning of this year while I was shopping in my local supermarket. I bought the ones that help preserve the hair colour - which I don't know if it actually does anything tbh - but I decided to try. I like it when I don't have more of my favourite hair brands. The plus one is the smell because it does smell good! Their shower gel is also a plus one!
My forth favourite is this package of elastic bands I bought in H&M. It was only 2.99€ and they secure my hair super nicely and because I have super curly, voluminous and wild hair it helps me get it in a pony tail or a bun easily. There were more colours but I wanted neutral colours and not vibrant ones. I hate when I'm running on a treadmill and my hair keeps falling of my elastic. I'm sure that I've broken more than 30 elastic brands withing two years.
The last favourite is an app called Nike+ training and I used it when I can't go to the gym and still wanna workout for a little while. The thing that made me like it is the fact that it gives you a lot of different workout plans that you can choose one to do, it gives you a timer and everything.

My Readings of the Month | March

Hello everyone!
March is ending so it's time for me book review of the month.
This month book was Zoella's third novel "Girl Online Going Solo" which came out November last year.
First I'm going to leave here the synopsis so that you can all read:

Synopsis: As Penny starts the school year she's ready to face the world - alone. Noah has gone off the radar after ending his world tour early and no one, including Penny, knows where he is. So when she accepts Megan's invitation to visit her performing arts school it seems like an opportunity to make some new friends.

Helping everyone else seems to be the right remedy - Elliot needs her friendship more than ever, and she meets Posey, who she can really help with her stage fright. But is charming Scottish boy Callum the right kind of distraction? And can Penny truly move on when Noah's shadow seems to haunt her round every corner? (source)

|My Thoughts|

I think that the book is well written (quite simple but readable) and I think that it can persuade a person to continue reading until you've read the book in just three or four sittings. And since the book doesn't have a lot of pages and it's dynamic which means that is hard for someone to get bored of it quickly.
What I didn't like to much was the fact that she even though introduce new characters she kept rotating the story for the same ones and most stuff became too predictable. There wasn't any plot twist or an unsuspected event that blew my mind but none the less was good. 
Even thought this is the third book from the same range I still like the idea that she uses real places from Brighton onto the pages and it gives it a new prescriptive and can captivate people to visit the city. I really want to visit Brighton some day! 
I like ever single Zoe's books but I thought that she could of better developed the story not to make it so predictable. 
I don't wanna say a lot about the plot because I don't want to spoil anything but I think she could of done a lot with Callum and his relation with Penny

Overall I like it a lot but because the writing was a little too simple and the plot being a little uneventful it's a fantastic, cosy read and one that I will be going back to no doubt for a re-read!

I definitely recommend anyone to read after reading the other two of course!

What I bought today | H&M
Hello beauties!  
It has been a while since I've posted and since I've mad a shopping haul! OK kinda of, but today a bought some pieces and I thought I would share them with you!
I entered H&M and bought three pieces: a grey sweater, a grey/whitish sweater with some birds on them and a white t-shirt "Make today magic".
The prices of the products are within the picture.
The last thing I bought was something I've been saving for a long time, some black converse. I was needing some new shoes since mine were a little worn out and I decided to treat myself.

February Favourites | Monthly Favourites

 Hello beauties! 

The month of February just ended and that means it's time for another monthly favourites! This month I didn't try a lot of new things - I know SHAME! - but I revisited some old products and fell in love with one of them. 
The first item is a kiko lipstick that I've used the most during this month - shade 805 - and what I have to say is that I love it a lot and I think I'll always will. The colour is amazing and it last not a lot but for me the necessary hours of my day. If you want to read my review on this and other lipsticks clik here
The next item is the item that I revisited and it is a hair mousse by syoss. I've been using it again because sometimes I need a "curl helper" when I go out at night with my friends and I wanna have a decent hair - which sometimes is impossible and I remembered why I use to love it. It can give my hair some well defined curls when I apply it in wet hair and then use the hair dyer to improve the results. 
The last beauty item is a perfume named Inner Code by Elode. Until now I didn't knew this brand existed and I don't know a lot about it but I was desperately needing a new perfume and this one was on sale and I decided to try a new brand and was not disappointed with it. It has a soft sweet smell and it last a decent amount of time.
I began my university classes on the 13th of February and I was needing a new bag because my old one was not only smaller but the straps were breaking. I went to a lot of stores but none of the bags available suit me and then I finally found it! I went to a store called Paco Martinez and found the perfect bag for me! It's black and has a lot of storage space! I love it a lot!
My final product favourite is a notebook by Oxford and I love it because it's multidisciplinary which means I can use it for 4 different classes and they are colour coordinated and I find it super useful because I can keep everything in one place and not have 4 different notebooks for four different classes. If the space gets used quickly then I'll to use something else but for now I love this notebook.
Lastly I have a TV Show named Victoria which talks about the life of Queen Victoria of England and it's really good! I love that era and that's why I love another TV-Show called Reign. Another thing that made me watch is the main actress - Jenna Coleman since I loved her when she was on Dr. Who. You have to see it!

And that's all my favourites!
