April Favorites

April went very slow and very fast. A lot happened...and I mean A LOT! It was a very emotional month, for good and bad reasons. I went through a lot, one chapter of my life ended and I began a new, very real one.

Because so much happened, it felt like it took an eternity to get through. Yet, at the same time, it felt like the days were flying by, especially in my first two weeks of work (aka the last two weeks of April)

Anyways, I won't ramble because I've done that enough in my previous posts and I have a post grad update coming up soon!

I've been in my own world this entire month so these favorites may be all over the place but let's just get right into it.



//Kate Spade Sunglasses: I got these glasses last month and haven't been wearing anything else. I haven't had a good pair of sunglasses in quite some time and I knew I needed a new pair. They were a VERY late Christmas gift (LOL) and I forget sometimes that I can wear sunglasses in seasons other than summer. I wear them pretty much whenever I leave the house and I'm pretty obsessed. Here are a similar pair!

//LUSH Bubblegum Lip Scrub: I've been on the hunt for a great lip scrub for months now. The winter really took a toll on my skin (as I've talked about so many times before) and my lips were pretty bad. That's why I'm so glad I stumbled into LUSH Cosmetics and found this precious little jar at the register. I use it a few times a week, just scrub it on dry lips and then wipe off with a dry towel, apply some lip balm, and my lips are smooth and supple. It's been a lifesaver!

//Boscia Exfoliating Peel Gel: I got this as a deluxe sample from a Sephora order last month but I've fallen in love with it. It's a gel consistency that you rub on your clean face and it breaks up all the dead skin. You can actually see the dead skin coming off your face so it's pretty gross and cool, at the same time. I've been doing this once a week as a treatment, and especially when my skin is extra dry and moisturizer isn't helping. It's great for bringing a new, fresh layer of skin to the surface and I notice a real difference when I use this.

//Audible: I don't know if this is a cheat favorite since I've only been using it for two weeks but I'm obsessed so I must include it. I'm a huge book worm and I've always loved reading. I never understood the appeal of audiobooks because I like to be able to read and hold an actual book (or e-reader) and I thought it would be hard to follow the story, but that has all changed. I downloaded the Audible app (Audible is powered by Amazon and linked to your Amazon account) and downloaded a free audiobook & fell in love. I listened to "Girl on the Train" (review coming soon) and loved the feel of listening to a story, so I bought another book. It's so relaxing and calming, and I love listening to them on the train as opposed to music. I'm officially a convert.

//Soap & Glory Hand Food Hand Cream: This is a product that I have had in my Sephora favorites for over a year. Finally, all of the Soap & Glory products were on sale at Sephora because they are no longer carrying the line and this little gem cost me $4. I bought it with the body butter(which I haven't used yet) but this hand cream is a Godsend. It smells amazing and is so soothing, moisturizing, and not greasy at all. I have a lot of hand creams but this is the only one I've been using of late.

As I always say, I need to keep track of my favorites more throughout the month and not just think about when it's time to write this post. I have to say, I've been using so many new make-up products lately so I don't have anything that has been used continuously.

Another favorite of mine....


There's a new little princess!!!!!! Did you really think I would go without addressing this?? I'm SO happy the Royal Family has welcomed a little girl... can you imagine the little outfits Kate is going to dress her in? PRECIOUS!

Happy May everyone :)
