April Favorites 2012

Is April really over already? How did that happen!? Time does fly when you're having fun. This has been a wonderful month for me. I got to visit Japan for the first time, which was a dream come true. And also, the weather has been fantastic here in Taipei, not including the freak rain and thunderstorms every other day, and I could finally take out my spring and summer clothes.

I'm sure most of you have read The Hunger Games or have at least seen the movie? Isn't it weird how some people love it, and some people absolutely hate it? I definitely enjoyed the movie, although it can't even compare to the book; which is usually the case, isn't it? It's such an easy read and the story is very compelling. I'm currently reading the last book in the trilogy, and I must say, I haven't loved a series of books this much in a very long time; probably not since Harry Potter!

I've been hunting for my favorite DKNY perfume for ages, and finally stumbled upon it. I couldn't be more thrilled! It's no secret that I'm a huge DKNY fan, but I just love this specific one a teeny tiny bit more than all the others. It is a little harder to find than the Be Delicious range, but definitely worth the hunt.

I decided to try the MAC Tendertone Lip Balm as I've heard many people rave about it. I got it in the flavor Hush Hush. Always on the prowl for the perfect lip balm, I try as many different ones as possible, and I must say, this one is definitely in my top five. Not only does it smell incredible, it adds a nice shine to the lips and it's not too sticky.

My most loved clothing item this month has been my denim sleeveless shirt. It looks good with shorts, leggings and colored jeans especially. This one is from TOPSHOP and you can still get it online. I think it's perfect for the weather right now.

I popped into Accessorize the other day and saw that they had the Ladylike Turn Lock bag I've been eyeing online. They had it in two different colors, but I decided to get it in this sandy, brown color. It goes with more of my stuff. Loves it!

Lastly, I've been loving the Bobbi Brown Corrector. I sometimes get very dark circles under my eyes from not sleeping enough, and this baby will just cover that right up. I'll definitely recommend it!

So that's my favorites for April! What have you been loving this past month?


  1. I just finished the first "Hunger Games" book. I disliked the movie a bit after reading. I don't think they did a good job of explaining why characters say/do certain things (for example, why Katniss put the flowers around Rue's body). I think the movie should have had narration by her, to describe things better.

    1. You're right, it would have been way better with some narrating. I had to explain a lot of things to The Boyfriend while we were watching it, because he didn't read the book.

      I don't think I would've liked the movie if I hadn't read the book.

  2. Love the items, haven't been to the movie jet.. Guess I have a plan for the weekend :)


    1. So did you see the movie? What did you think?

  3. Ah, love the Hunger Games, both the books and the movie! Books always win though lol.
    I really want to try Mac Tendertones, I hear so much good about them.

  4. love that handbag! so pretty :) x
