Looking Back on April

Here’s how my month of April went.

It started off with the end of Easter, and spending some time with family. I also finally managed to finish my 3000 piece puzzle my sister got me for Christmas! I was really sad to discover that like 5 pieces were missing though. But I’m so proud that I managed to do the whole puzzle!

The following weekend ended up including lots of blog prep. I baked some Carrot Cake Balls, tried out my new Tarte Lip Paints, and took photos for my Letterman Jacket OOTD.

It also started getting a lot cooler that week. Temperature dropped so much, and there was lots of wind and rain. I got to pull out my gloves, beanies and jackets. The following week though it got warm again. It’s been a very confusing fall.

The next weekend again we spent going around second hand stores looking for bookshelves. We found none, but we did go out for milkshakes! I also did more blog prep as I do. I had fun making a little zine, making candy sushi, taking photos for my blog collab OOTD and figuring out what makeup to bring on our trip to Japan!

After a full on work week with lots of babies, the next weekend came along. This one was a lot quieter. I mostly watched YouTube, but I did manage to film a video for the collab post where I try some UK snacks courtesy of Sarah over at Vintage Tea Rose! That will be coming out tomorrow!! Rory and I hung out a lot and played games together, it was really nice!

Finally, the last week of April tended to pass me by quite fast. We did try an escape room this past weekend though! I’ve always been curious about them, and it was so much fun to try all the puzzles! We didn’t quite make it out in the hour limit (we solved it 5 minutes after, so close!), and our brains were getting fried by the end. It was definitely worth trying though, and we’re keen to try some of the other rooms!

That’s how my month was. The weeks are for work, the weekends are for blog prep and housekeeping. The joys of adult life.

How was your April?

Hello internet! My name is Angela. I write daily about my travels, life, thoughts, and ramblings. I live down in New Zealand with my lovely husband, Rory. Thanks for stopping by!
  1. I’ve always wanted to try an escape room but never got the time! I’m really curious about it.

    1. It was so much fun! The puzzles were complex but in the end we figured it all out! The hour passed by so fast for us. Definitely give it a go some time 🤗

  2. Yay for finishing your puzzle! How long did it take you all up? I did an escape room last year and it took about 10-15 minutes to get into the swing of things so I didn’t make it out in time either 😛 they’re super fun though!

    1. The puzzle took me around 3 months haha! It was so much fun to do though, and the closer I got to finishing, the more I did it 😉
      Escape rooms are so much fun! I was into it for the first 40 minutes, running around trying everything. Then I just got tired haha! Both physically and mentally, we all slowed way down!

      1. I know what you mean about the puzzle, “if I just find this bit” lol! With escape rooms I think the key is not to have too many people but still enough people with good logic and problem solving skills 🙂

  3. I’d love to do an escape room! They look like a lot of fun 🙂

    1. They really are! I’m so keen to do another one 😄

  4. Your month sounded like it was pretty laid back. There’s chaos at my house all day every day lol

    1. To be fair, most of our months are pretty laidback haha! Next month looks interesting for us though!

      1. Japan right?! 😀 Omg I cannot wait for you and I’m excited to see what you guys do over there

  5. Sounds like you’ve had a lovely month overall!! I really want to try an escape room I think it would be cool to do it with all my close family and friends!! It’s a shame you finished it just 5 mins after the time limit xx

    1. It was a nice month. You should definitely try an escape room! It’s so much fun trying to do all the puzzles. Haha, we were starting to get mentally exhausted after a while, so we were getting stuck right at the end! So close to completing it on time 😀

      1. I really want to!! Oohh it sounds really good 😊 xx

  6. I’ve always wanted to try an escape room! They sound soooo fun!

    1. They really are!! You should try one if you get the chance 😀

  7. I know we are approaching the end of may (so crazy!) But I hope this month is going as well as April did! Congrats on finishing that puzzle! That is so cool! <3

    1. Haha, it’s hard to believe we’re almost halfway through 2018 already!! 😄

      1. It is crazy! Where has the time gone?!?!
