April non-beauty favorites

April has been one very, very full month. Full of new experiences, bonding with new people, going to Comicdon, reading a new kind of genre, trying some new outfits and trying some new recipes. As you can imagine as much as I love makeup and skincare, my interests don't stop there and this month I have discovered so many new favorites that are not beauty-related. What better way to present them than in a post of my non-beauty monthly favorites.

Here is what I've been loving in fashion, food, books and much more in the month of April.

  1. Strawberries.Starting from probably the most generic, but maybe one of my most loved fruits, strawberries. I just love these so much. Not only because I get to add this delicious fruit to my meals and as a healthy, low-calorie snack, but also because of the lovely recipes I can create with it. If you have strawberries, the possibilities are endless really! 
  2. Filofax. I have been falling in love with my Filofax once more in the months of March and April and although it's nowhere close to how I want it to look, I truly enjoy decorating the weeks, the months and how easy it is to interchange pages so that everything  feels much more stable than in the bullet journal.  I will be posting more of my decorated pages each month!
  3. Avocado Brownies. I love brownies, however, when I bake I try to keep sugar far away and butter and oils at a minimum. I mildly altered this avocado brownie recipe, exchanging the coconut sugar for some stevia, the soy milk for coconut or almond milk and the maple syrup with honey (so it's no longer vegan, but maple syrup is very expensive where I live). The result is delicious, soft, buttery-feeling brownies with zero guilt. Try it.
  4. Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo. After agreeing to read something that doesn't belong to my "To read" list as part of a book club that I do with a friend I picked up this Six of Crows story by Leigh Bardugo and I have been divided. I can't really say that it's my go-to book but for some reason, I need to know what happens next. Expect a review of it sometime in May or June (someone is a slow reader). You can buy it from Amazon or Public if you live in Greece.
  5. Dungeons and Dragons. I picked the 5th edition and started playing with some friends in the month of April and I have been obssessed with it ever since. I love the idea of the interactive storytelling and how you can enter a completely different fantasy world. 
  6. Fashion. I've had quite a few new favorite clothes that I got recently from the sales. These wonderful jeans with the flower embroidery and a face detail from Zara have been a staple in my wardrobe because they look super flattering on me and hide my lower belly. I love this Forever 21 light blue jacket and this distressed Zara denim Jacket (in the greek site too). 

These are all of my favorite items that were not beauty related in the month of April. I would love to hear what you have been loving this month!
