It’s been a while since the last instalment of this series and with the arrival of spring, I felt like sharing a few more of my favourites*. I know the post is titled ‘April’ but I discovered many of those products way before that and have used them for some time now – I just didn’t have time to write about them before.
Seventeen Doll’d Up Mascara
Simply the best mascara around! It doesn’t clump and comes with a perfectly curved brush to curl and separate eyelashes. Unfortunately, I think Boots is getting rid of the Seventeen brand, but I’m hoping it will still be available from other places.
Asics ESS Winter Half Zip Running Top
I bought this running top on a whim after walking out of my office on a cold afternoon and thinking how I’d be freezing on my run that night… I never regretted it. I wore it on runs, hikes and even under my biking jacket! It’s warm without being bulky and fits perfectly on its own or layered with a compression shirt.
Salomon Speedcross 4 Trail Running Shoes
After reading many reviews online and waiting to find a good deal, I finally bought myself a pair of proper trail running shoes and quickly fell in love with them (and with trail running as a whole). They run a bit small so I’ve had to stretch this pair, but they are very comfortable nonetheless. I’ve run 35 miles in them since mid-March so they were a good investment!
Arbonne Renew & Rescue Detox Gelée
My mom sent me this lotion after I mentioned my 75 Miles Challenge and the sore legs that came with it; she thought it could help and she was right (moms usually are)! The gelée is really soothing, especially after a long run (or the day before one), it’s not sticky and smells amazingly good.
Essie Nail Polish
I love nail polish but for some reason, I’ve always stuck with clear ones or very pale colours. At the end of last summer, I decided to branch out and treated myself to some darker hues. Since then, the collection only keeps growing! I like Essie because they don’t need three or four layers (I don’t have that kind of patience) and for their huge range of colours. My current favourites are Midnight Cami, Winning Streak, Bahama Mama and Fishnet Stockings.
