April Favorites

Alina Ermilova | Blog | April Favorites
It's been a while since I've showed my monthly favorites here, and honestly, I miss those kinds of posts. Personally, I love discovering something new from other peoples' blogs and youtube channels, so I thought it'd be a great ideas for me to create a regular "favorites" series on my blog, where I'd be sharing all of the things I've been loving for the past month: clothes, beauty, books, movies, podcasts, websites, etc.

Also, if you have any specific ideas on what you'd like me to share - I'm all ears!

CLOTHING ITEM: Lost Ink white jacket

Since it's mainly a fashion blog, it's only natural that I first share something related to it. My go-to item this months has been this white jacket from Lost Ink. I absolutely adore its structured shape and at the same time quite simple design. And honestly, it makes any outfit, no matter what you put underneath.

My favorite way was to wear it with either a pair of wide leg trousers and a top or with a simple black dress. Can you tell I like black&white combo?

BEAUTY: Guerlain "Intense Liquid Matte" M06 Charming Beige

Moving on to beauty. Even though I honestly don't experiment with it that much and stick to a few core products that I literally use every day, I thought it'd still be nice to share something that I love so much that I use it so often.

My go-to lip color for the last 3 months has been Guerlain's matte lip color in the shade "M06 Charming Beige". If you've been following me for a while, you know that it's pretty much my signature lip color.

As for this particular product, I loved the velvety texture and the lasting power of many hours, as well as the fact that you can control how much product you put on and how intense the color would be.

BOOK: Where'd You Go Bernadette

I've been reading mostly non-fiction since the beginning of the year, but I was desperately in need of some kind of story this month to carry me away from reality. And I'm so glad I came across this book! I've had it on my list for quite some time, and I think I ended up picking it up just at the right time.

Afterwards I read both good and bag reviews about the book, but I honestly loved it! It's a super easy read with some humorous fragments, although the story has quite a deep undertone. And I gotta say that I specifically loved the character of Bernadette, to whom I almost related on a personal level.

MOVIE: Before We Go

Technically I've watched this one last month, but I just had to share it. To start with, I'm not a big fan of romantic movies. I mean I've watched quite a few in my life, but I can't really pinpoint any that I LOVED, you know. This one I LOVED! And mind you, it's been about 2 months since I've watched it, so it really says a lot.

To put it shortly, this is not your typical romantic comedy/drama. It doesn't have a cliche story line and a happy-ending (I was a bit mad about this one, but that's ok), and that's exactly why I enjoyed it so much. And despite that, I still got all the feels.


I've actually been following Marie's instagram for a ages, but since I've never shared her account with you, I thought it'd only be natural to do so now.

I absolutely love her style, both in fashion and photography. It's easy-going, yet sophisticated. And I love the vintage vibe!

What are some of you favorites right now (books, movies, instagram, etc)?

Thanks for reading!
