April Favs

Just like the beauty gurus on YouTube do their end-of-the-month favorites vids, I have decided to start doing a post of all of my random favorite items from each month! So let's get started!

First on my list is the Revlon PhotoReady 3D Volume Mascara. I have never found a mascara I love more than this one! My lashes look so full and long, without ANY clumps! Plus it comes off pretty easy when I want it to.

I love love love Melissa and Doug toys for our kids! We find them a lot at place like TJ Maxx and Marshall's for a great price. We don't do many electronic toys at our house, so the wooden toy sets from M&D keep the babies busy for a really long time! Even the hubs and I play with their toys!

Chocolate Covered Katie!!! Her website is a God-send! She does healthy desserts that will blow your mind! Many are vegan, but you would never know! 

Next is the Infusium 23 Color Defender conditioner. If you have been reading my blog, then you know I recently bleached my hair to dye it red for my Hunger Games party. Well, needless to say my hair was not happy. This stuff has brought my hair back to life. My hair feels better now than before I ever bleached my hair!

This wonderful stuff is the J.R. Watkins Window and Glass Cleaner. I LOVE making my own cleaner, but I haven't found a glass one that works well. I caved and purchased this because of the lack of harsh chemicals. Wow. It works 100x's better than Windex ever did! It smells really great too! I found this at Harris Teeter for around 3 bucks.

This is The Body Shop's Cheek and Lip stain. Wow. Wow. Wow. I have only had this a few days and I can't imagine it not being in my life. Yes, it's that serious. It leaves just a hint of color on my lips and I can still kiss the hubs with it on. It also can be used to put that hint of flush in your cheeks. It goes on so easy and stays on for a long time. This stuff doesn't dry out my lips at all!

These are my all-time favorite shoes. I wear them everywhere and with everything. Nothing else more to say. They. Are. Awesome.

This entire CD is on my workout playlist. If you love to listen to rap, I suggest you pick up this album. I got in on my phone for less than 10 bucks for 17 songs. This kid has talent. I've never been a fan of Christian rappers-they usually seem forced and cheesy. Not this guy. Check him out. Seriously.

There is seriously drool running out of my mouth as I type this. I just recently discovered Pinkberry's Salted Caramel frozen yogurt. OH-EM-GEE!!! Why hasn't anyone talked about this? I swear I am it's biggest fan. I could bathe in this stuff. I could eat it 24/7. *Sigh* Just sucks I have to drive over an hour to get it. But then again, that really could be a blessing in disguise. 

The hubs and I have been going through all seven seasons on Netflix. What can I say, I love it.

Vaseline's Hand and Nail cream. Not greasy at all, and really helps the dry spot that crack and bleed around my fingers. Plus it survives being in my hot car all day.

Revlon's Lip Butter in Tutti Frutti is a PERFECT summertime lip color. Not too bright and not too orange. It's not a fussy color and doesn't take much to apply. There's also no clumping!

Larabar's Apple Pie bar. I don't care for these personally, but my kids gobble this up and I can feel good about giving them these. The ingredients are dates, almonds, unsweetened apples, walnuts, raisins and cinnamon.


Rimmel's Lasting Finish Pro nail polish in Steel Grey. This color is my go-to for every occasion. It looks SO GOOD on. I always end up turning to this when I actually do my nails.

EcoTools has the softest brushes at the best price. I have a ton of these and I haven't been disappointed yet. Alicia Silverstone is their spokesperson because of their cruelty-free bristles. Check them out at Walmart and national drugstore chains.

This is True Religion's perfume for women. A friend gave me this and it's become a staple for me. I can't really describe the scent, but it almost has a masculine scent to it-which I really love. 


My Ninja! The blades on this this is ridiculously sharp! It's not a Vitamix by anymeans, but it get's the job done better than the Osterizer I used to have!

I have talked about this book a zillion times. Just go check it out. 

Last but not least is La Croix sparkling water. I add a bit of cranberry juice and I have a perfect soda! This has helped so much with my Coke addiction. I keep my fridge stocked with this at all times!

What are some of your favorite things from April??

**BTW, I am selling sponsorship spots for $5 a month or $10 for two three (I previously had two...I'm an idiot) months!!! Do you sell Shakeology, Mary Kay, Avon or ThirtyOne? Have an etsy shop? Have a blog? Let me know! We can also do a swap if you would like!!!

    I really need to check out the mascara.

    I just bought Method's glass cleaner and it works much better than windex too. Windex is over-rated. hah!
