2018, My Favorites

April Favorites

Now that April is over, it only makes sense that I do my April favorites post now. That’s how this works, in case you haven’t figured that out. 😉 Anyway, as is usually the case for me, I combined some things that are completely new to me this month, and things that I may have had or used for a while but didn’t really start using more frequently until this past month.

Here they are, in no particular order. Continue reading “April Favorites”

My Favorites

April Favorites

It’s that time again! I thought I would have put this out sooner, but time got away from me (as usual). For what it’s worth, it’s not as late as usual!!

Kuumba Made Persian Garden Fragrance Oil
I saw this in a YouTube video and had been looking for it for awhile before I finally found it at the Whole Foods by my job. It smells sweet, musky, and ambery. All scents that I love. Just smelling it brings me joy. It’s a little roll-on bottle, so I just keep it in my purse and put it on when I’m going somewhere or need a mood boost.

TOMS “Be Inspired” Canvas Slip-Ons

My new Be Inspired TOMS.

I love me some TOMS. They aren’t cheap, but considering how comfortable they are and the good that the company does, they’re worth it. And I promise you that I get my money’s worth. I wear those suckers out. When I was shopping online for some basic black ones, I found these ones on clearance and knew I had to get them. They are perfect for me and the message I’m constantly trying to give myself.

Samsung Galaxy S7
IT FINALLY HAPPENED!! I finally got my new phone!! You guys don’t understand how long this has been coming, and how hard I worked for this. I am so proud of my phone and I love it so freaking much. It’s the best phone I’ve EVER had. Funnily enough, Shane’s work phone is an iPhone 6 Plus and he still says he’d rather have a Galaxy S7. It IS the best smartphone on the market. 😉

Starbucks Coffee Frappucino
How crazy is it that I’d never had one of these before? To be honest, I didn’t even know they existed before a few months ago. I had one last month and it is SO good. I’m not a huge frap drinker because of the huge amount of sugar in them, but this is one I can imagine myself having plenty of over the summer. It’s the perfect combo of coffee and sweet for a frap.

Snapchat Filters
I know this seems like a silly one for some of you, but I was not able to do any filters on Snapchat before this month. My phone had so little memory that I couldn’t update the app to get them. It wasn’t until I got my new phone that I was finally able to do filters and they crack me up. I don’t usually post most of them to My Story; I’ll just save them and text them to Shane. HAHA!! Good thing we’re married because he’d be so uninterested in me after some of them.

Nivea Creme
I know this is a staple for a lot of people, but I didn’t really discover it until about 2 months ago. I brought my little tin (that I’d gotten in a favor from a baby shower) to work, and have been using it religiously. It somehow magically disappeared recently so I bought another one and am so thankful to have it back.

And one disappointment: St. Ives Nourished & Smooth Oatmeal Scrub + Mask
I don’t exactly know what I expected from this, but it was just a gooey, sticky, gross mess. It didn’t make my face feel nice during or after and it was so hard to get all the way off. Luckily I didn’t spend my own money on this since I got it in a St. Ives Voxbox from Influenster. By the way, if you aren’t signed up for Influenster, you need to be. The boxes don’t come regularly and they don’t have a cohesive theme for all of them, but you can get some seriously great stuff in them and it’s ALL FREE!!
