April Favorites 2013

Happy spring, everyone! As I'm writing this post now, the sun is shining and the birds are singing. A perfect spring day! No need to beat around the bush, here are my favorites from the month of April.

1. Rimmel Wake Me Up foundation
This product has gotten so much hype on the interwebs, so I really wanted to try it. I ordered it from as it's not sold in Taiwan. This foundation is amazing, and totally worth the buzz. It gives my skin a nice dewy finish, and the coverage is fantastic. It smells good, too and stays on for up to 8 hours. I'm curious to see how this foundation will wear in Taiwan's humid summer though. This is one of my favorite drugstore foundations up to date, and I'll definitely repurchase it in the future.

2. Chanel iPhone case

Isn't this phone case so cute? It looks like the Chanel nail polish and you can get it in many different colors. I got mine from a store on Although they sent me the wrong color (I ordered "May" and received "Tendresse") it doesn't really bother me that much, as the colors are very similar. You can get the case in a hard cover or silicone. I got the silicone one, as I hate having to put on/take off a hard cover.

3. Michael Kors rose gold watch

I'm so in love with this watch, which I received a couple of weeks ago from I've had the gold version for a while and wanted to change it up a bit with the beautiful rose gold one. I got it in midsized again, as the oversized runway watch is way too big for my wrist. I'm very very happy with this purchase!

4. Essie "Mint Candy Apple"

What's better than a pretty pastel mint on your nails for spring? I adore Essie "Mint Candy Apple", as I only have to apply two coats for it to be completely opaque. I think this one is going to be worn A LOT this year for spring and summer.

5. "An Idiot Abroad" by Karl Pilkington

I bought this book a while ago from my favorite online bookstore, The Book Depository (free international shipping), and this is one of the funniest books I've read in a long time. I love the TV show of Karl traveling to the 7 wonders of the world, and this is the book he wrote while visiting all the famous spots. He is so funny without trying to be funny! I'm so excited to watch the other season where he goes to do things from other people's bucket lists.

6. Urban Decay NAKED Basics palette

I've wanted the Urban Decay NAKED Basics palette for so long and finally received it this month. I waited so long for it because the parcel got stuck at customs (there was a nail polish in it as well). I've only worn it once, but I know that this is going to become my favorite palette to take along when traveling. It's very compact and contains all the nudes and neutrals that I like to wear on my eyes.

What have you been loving this past month?


  1. I love the rosegold watch xxxx

  2. Ooo, Naked Basics looks much more affordable than the full palette, nice! I've been wanting one forever, even though I don't really wear makeup. The watch is super cute!


    1. Thanks, Sue! I also don't like to wear eyeshadow often, and when I do I like to keep it simple and neutral. That's why I think this one is perfect for me. Have a nice day! xxx
