March and April Favorites: BEST PRODUCTS FROM APRIL

Another month another monthly favorites round up! I have more than usual to share with you because I never got around to sharing my March favorites. April was a whirlwind with the Reward Style conference and I felt like I never got caught up. Here are my favorite things from April with a few goodies from March I don’t want you to miss!

Fashion Favorites

White jeggings

I’m sure this is no surprise to you, but these white jeans from Walmart are one of my favorite purchases so far this year. I basically live in them. Luckily they wash really well šŸ™‚ You can see them styles here, here, here, and here.

Peach eyelet top

When I want to be comfy and casual I reach for this eyelet basic tee. The material is SO soft but you won’t look like you didn’t try. I keep meaning to pick up a second color when they’re on sale, it’s that good!

Blue eyelet top

I clearly love eyelet, haha! I’ve equally reached for this blue eyelet top throughout the month. I actually took and wore both with me to Dallas earlier this month for the Reward Style conference.

Strawberry tee

I reached for this Strawberry shirt on more than one occasion since picking it up in February, it. I’m partial to my little strawberries, but it was also one of my best sellers this month so I’m not alone šŸ™‚

pink gingham pixi pants

Ever since getting these gingham pants in my Target try on haul I’ve had a thing for printed / patterned work pants. I have two to share with you! I love the soft blush of this pair, and this is one of my favorite outfits from April. This affordable white eyelet top I paired with it is also finally online and under $40! You can see the full look here!

floral pants

Another pair of work pants I’m loving, I’m actually wearing them to work today! They run TTS, I’m wearing a 6. You can see this full outfit here!

Strawberry Bag

I had this mini Strawberry bag waiting to be worn for the Reward Style conference. Y’all know me so well because a lot of you sent me the link to it on Instagram! It makes me so happy, and is the perfect little size for your necessities.

tan wedges

I could put a lot of money on the fact that these wedges will be a favorite until it’s too cold to wear them later this year. They are the most comfortable wedges I’ve ever worn and a great price point under $100.

victoria emerson wrap bracelet (c/o)

This was gifted from #rStheCon and I gradually started wearing it almost daily. I don’t own anything like it and typically like to stick with my David Yurman dupes, but this bracelet is way more comfortable to wear! It also fits nicely on my small wrists. It’s sold out, but I will let you know on Instagram when it restocks!

Kendra scott earrings

I adore all the mother of pearl pieces Kendra Scott releases, and had to have this peach and gold version! They’re not too heavy for daily wear and I’ve reached for the more than my go-to pearl studs lately.

Beauty Favorites

Rodan and Fields active hydration (c/o)

I have never enjoyed applying lotion on my skin until I discovered this Body Replenish. I’m actually on my second tub of the product and I don’t think I’ve ever used up an entire body lotion before. There is no greasy residue whatsoever, which is why I can actually tolerate it! This product is different than a moisturizer because it has Glycerin and Hyaluronic Acid. A quick run down on the difference: a moisturizer is used to lock in your skincare, Hyaluronic Acid actually brings moisture to your skin. I started using this regularly which self tanning and it has helped my fake tan last over a week.

Colleen Rothschild Cleansing Balm and Face Oil (c/o)

Holy molly are these skincare products amazing. I used and loved both in 2018 and I’m so glad they’re back in rotation. If you haven’t tried either product, or Colleen Rothschild skincare in general you need to stop what you’re doing and place an order. You will not be disappointed! I look forward to using both of these products nightly because they feel like a luxury, plus my skin loves them! The cleansing balm removes makeup without stripping your skin and massaging it into your skin has lasting benefits to increase circulation. You can use it on it’s own, but I’ve followed up with a salicylic acid acne cleanser afterward. I’ve noticed my skin is less sensitive to my acne regimen now since using these products with it. Using the oil as my last step is my favorite part of my skincare routine. I’m always shocked at how soft my skin feels as I massage it in.

They are always running a great sale and if you’re still looking for a Mothers Day gift I would suggest getting this for your Mom! These items are at the top of my wish list: retinol supreme night oil and retinol supreme eye serum. Both would also be perfect for Mom!

Loving tan self tanner

I’ve been really into spray tans lately due to a lot of recent events, but it’s not something I can maintain on a weekly basis unfortunately. This is the self tanner I’ve used for years and I recently started trying the dark shade. It’s very dark so I have to be extra careful when applying it compared to the normal medium shade I use, but the color is just like my spray tan. I use this cheap mitt to apply it.

Sleeping Mask

This mask is so good y’all. I started a new acne regimen at the beginning of March and had to let my skin adjust to the harsh / drying products. I finally tried this product from an old FabFitFun box and I’ve been hooked ever since. I don’t use it nightly, maybe 2-3x/week, but every morning I use it I stare at my skin in the mirror. It looks glowing and has less redness overnight. It also feels really cooling and calming on the skin.

Supergoop Unseen Sunscreen (c/0)

I started using this sunscreen as the firs step in my makeup routine and fell in love with the product. This is proof sunscreen doesn’t have to be greasy. It has the texture of a primer, is oil free, and doesn’t contain the harmful ingredients most common in sunscreens (specifically oxybenzone).

Charlotte Tilberry Lipstick

I got this for my Mom for Christmas and when I tried it I loved the formula so much I ordered two for me that night. I wear pillow talk and liv it up and I love them on their own or mixed together! I typically dot the color onto my lips so it’s more natural. It’s a matte finish but not drying on the lips whatsoever. I typically hate lipsticks and these are the only two I reach for now.

Lifestyle Favorites

Traveling to Dallas for #rStheCon

I have to mention the conference because it was my favorite experience from April. You can read the recap of the conference if you missed it!

New iPhone + Case

I impulsively upgraded my iphone to the X max something…it’s funny how out of the loop I am with technology haha! I got this iphone case and custom logo popsocket! It’s the little things that make me happy.. haha. I upgraded for better quality photos and video and I’m so glad I did.

Taylor Swift ME

Ok I’m obsessed! But that’s not surprising because Taylor Swift can do no wrong.

eyelash extension update

This is definitely not a favorite but a fail! I removed my lash extensions after an application gone wrong at a new place. You can hear what happened on my IG “lashes” highlight, but it’s been nice to rub my eyes in my skincare routine again. Other than that, I definitely miss them! My lashes aren’t the same as they were pre lash extensions. They’re half the length and are straighter / more weighed down. I’m using this lash serum again to bring them back to life and wearing these falsies for videos on the weekend.
