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.
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
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.
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.
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!!
