april favorites

Friday, May 02, 2014

The start of a new months means new monthly favorites! I missed my March favorites because I just could not find time for it on the blog, so these are the things I have been loving the past two months! :)

Beauty Product




I did not plan to purchase a new top coat, but Ulta was sold out of the OPI one I normally use. I was completely out so I needed something! I picked up the Orly Won't Chip top coat and love it. The reviews on Ulta's website are contradictory, but I have had good experience with it! I can paint my nails on a Thursday and have no chips until Tuesday. I purchased a smaller size (which I cannot find online) that was only about $4 to try out the product. Next time I will get the bigger size!

Youtuber



 I have four main Beauty Vloggers on YouTube that I watch regularly. I have a couple others that I am subscribed to, but they are not "Must Watches" for me. I just added a new one to "Must Watch" list and that is Tess Christine! Her videos are so fun to watch and she has really great tips. She is doing a series right now called "Get Healthy With Me" and shares recipes and workout tips. (Her breakfast one is linked above!) I love them. She also has incredibly cute style. Check her out, you will love her!

Song 



Speaking of Youtubers... one of my favorites, MissGlamorazzi, recommended a band awhile back called The 1975. I just got around to looking them up on Spotify and love them! They are similar to Imagine Dragons and Of Monsters and Men. One of their more popular songs, Chocolate, is linked above.

Laugh



I found this eCard on Pinterest.... too perfect!


Purchase



If you follow me on Instagram, then you saw I just purchased these! They were on sale recently at Nordstom and I just had to have them! They are actually really comfortable, too. Size up a half size if you buy them :). 

Linking up today with Meet at the Barre for Friday's Favorites!

Have a good weekend : ).

I would love it if you would follow me on GFC or BlogLovin'!
