April in Instagram

April has been a busy old month. Sometimes, it surprises me how much I've actually done in a month when I look back. I didn't feel this busy on a day-to-day basis, but apparently, I've been busier than I thought!





As March turned into April, I was sunning myself in gorgeous Costa Adeje, Tenerife. I had a lovely week away and it was a great way to kickstart the month.

1 - One of my favourite outfits from my holiday was this Primark playsuit, recommended by Brogan in a Primark Haul before her Antigua trip. I loved the style and the colour, so had to be a total copycat, of course. I felt fab!

2 - I loved this view from our hotel room balcony. We had some gorgeous sunrises and sunsets, just like this one. I miss that view so much!

3 - Another holiday outfit post, this time these gorgeous striped trousers, also from Primark. These have become a staple in my wardrobe, they're perfect for socialising and work. 10/10.

4 - The Hovima Costa Adeje do some great frozen cocktails, and I couldn't resist picking up one more while we waited for our transfer to the airport.

I've been attending lots more blog events recently, which I'm loving. Getting to see some of my favourite gals, while trying out lots of new places in Southampton - ideal.

5 - Before I flew to Tenerife, I attended a dinner at Grosvenor Casino Southampton*. We had such a fun time and the food was delicious - you can read the post on that here.

6 - The weather was a bit of a washout so what better way to spend an afternoon of April Showers, than with a Lush Bubble Bomb, aptly named April Showers. This smelt delicious and was my favourite of the month. If you fancy trying it, order now, it's leaving soon!

7 - School holidays are for taking yourself out for lunch. Before I headed back to work, I went to one of my favourite places - Cafe W in Waterstones West Quay - for a delicious meatball panini and a hot chocolate.

8 - Another write up for a blog event. This time, the Southampton Bloggers had a brunch at Lakaz Maman*. Oh my goodness, it was so tasty, and such a lovely atmosphere! Read my post here.

9 - I finally had my haircut and coloured after what feels like the longest time. In the hopes of some sunnier, warmer weather, I went for some blonde balayage, and I love it!


10 & 11 - I'd waited so long for Titanic The Musical to arrive at the Mayflower*, and when I finally saw it with the Southampton Bloggers this month, it did not let me down! Beautifully performed - read my review here.

12 - When I returned from Tenerife, I was invited to try the new foundation from YSL at YSL Debenhams Southampton*. I loved the foundation and the look that the lovely Michaela created for me. You can read all about it here.

13 - I drove all the way to Epsom to celebrate this gorgeous little boy's first birthday! It was so lovely to catch up with Beth and Jack!

14 - We've had some crazy weather this month. After the mini heatwave, we were in for some crazy thunderstorms. I loved watching the weather and somehow managing to catch this shot!

15 - Cocktails! Revs in Southampton have a new cocktail menu, and some of my blogging pals and I had a lovely catch up over a drink after another meal at Lakaz Maman. I can't wait to try some more of the new drinks.

16 - I love a good inspirational quote and I loved this one I found online from May The Thoughts Be With You.

17 - Another show review! This time I was invited to see The Kite Runner* and I was really impressed. Again, you can read my review here.

18 - Finishing the month with a monthly favourites post, how else? I've tried lots of new things this month and it meant I had plenty of products to choose from. Read that post here.

April was pretty good, I can't wait to see what May has in store. What have you got up to this month?

Love Lexie
