Treasure Hunt | April

Saturday, 5 May 2018

I can't believe it's almost May, March disappeared before my eyes and the favourites I had that month became the favourites for this month as well! Because I've been moving house, I've been a super scrimper, but I did manage to collect a few new treasures to talk about and enjoy. Here are the things I've collected in April:

Fitted Denim Jacket________________________________________________________________

Every denim jacket I've ever had has been second hand and baggy. Now there's nothing wrong with that, but after I tried on a friend's fitted denim jacket from Asos, I knew my wardrobe could do with one. So I bit the bullet and ordered a very similar one in my actual size. I don't really conform to sizing normally, sometimes I can be an 8 and sometimes I can fit into a 14 it doesn't make any sense to me either. I got this jacket in a size 8 and I love the way it looks, I've been wearing it with dresses and culottes and pyjamas on late night trips to Lidl. I've also been enjoying sticking all of my pins and badges onto it, especially my repeal the 8th badge and this cool animal rights badge I got randomly from a seller on depop. This jacket is definitely going to see me through these spring and summer months, it's light enough for those hot days, but can still be layered with a hoodie. It's just a perfect piece for my wardrobe and I'm so glad I decided to get it in my actual size, I just love it and I feel like it's such a timeless piece, I now look like even more of an 80's throwback!

Superdrug Charcoal Facemask ______________________________________________________

So Superdrug have started making affordable fresh face masks and I'm all for it! I picked this pot up whilst queuing for the tills dangerous and after a slight tingly face the first time I applied it, it's worked wonders for my skin. Dare I say it they're definitely on par with Lush's fresh face masks and a lot cheaper with much more product; this mask lasted me the whole month using it 2 times a week and I still have some left. I'm really excited to try out the whole of this range throughout summer, they've also just added some Jelly ones into the range too, much excite!

Pin Striped Culottes _______________________________________________________________

It is no secret that I love a culotte, I'm sure I've mentioned my love for them on here before. But this pair have changed the game! They are the most comfy pair of trousers I have ever worn apart from pyjamas of course and they're socially acceptable to be worn in every situation! I love styling these with a cute lil band tshirt and my denim jacket, or even a baggy jumper or hoodie for ultimate comfort on a night out. Culottes are all I'm going to be living in this spring! 

Newly Acquired Vinyls _____________________________________________________________

This month I got the chance to look through my parents old vinyls before I moved out and lets just say my collection has e x p a n d e d. It's so cool that my parents have an amazing music taste, I now own allll The Beatles albums and some other iconic people like Stevie Wonder and Elkie Brooks. I've been having so much fun recently listening to these albums back-to-back and taking so much inspiration from past music and now I have my own place we've been listening to vinyls in the living room, with gin; how old are we?

The Assassination of Gianni Versace ________________________________________________

I started watching this show when I was still living at home, but decided to show it to my flatmates because I was so impressed. It's just such a beautiful and twisted show and the aesthetic is on point. It's so similar to AHS visually and is actually almost as creepy in some parts, but doesn't have the weird plot twists because it's based on a true story. And after a lot of research after watching the show I found out that it's so, so close to what happened. Some of the scenes are created for tv drama but even down to the locations and the actors, the guy that plays Andrew the main character and Darren Criss look soooo alike and the actor that plays Gianni has got his mannerisms and look down to a tee from watching old videos of him. It just makes it all feel very real and like you were there,we all already know that Ryan Murphy is an absolute master for storytelling. We're about to start the OJ Simpson series soon, because we completely missed that hype when it came out, but I'm not sure if it's going to top Gianni, jus' sayin'.
