I am going to have a stereotypical moment here, but I literally cannot believe how fast the month of April went by! May is now here, and in 4 short months I will but hauling my a$$ to university and starting a brand new chapter of my life! CRAZY! But before I go off on a tangent about becoming an adult, I figured I would share with you some things I have been LOVING over the month of April! So, without any further adieu, here are my favourites!
Makeup Favourite: Kirkland Signature by Borghese Dense Kabuki Brush
I got this little sucker a while a go in a holiday makeup set my mom got from the beloved Costco. I use this brush everyday to buff in my foundation, concealer, powder and even blush! It is truly amaze-ballz! Honestly, it gives my face makeup such a flawless finish, I can't even believe it. I would seriously recommend to all of you to look for a dense, kabuki style brush; it makes such a difference in the application of foundation and is definitely worth an investment. I don't think this exact brush is available, but every year Costco comes out with a new brush set, so keep your eyes peeled because they are really great quality and a really great price!
Hair Favourite: Organix Nourishing Coconut Milk Anti-Breakage Serum
I know I have talked about this product previously, so I won't drown on about it; however, I have to say that it is really fantastic. My hair feels so soft and looks so shiny after using it and I really do think it helps to prevent and repair split ends. I think the best part is the smell; coconut reminds me of warm weather and days spent in the sunshine! So if your ends are looking a little worse for wear, I would recommend this wondrous product from Organix. It is only about $8.00 and you can get it from basically any drugstore, grocery store, etc. If you are interested in reading more of my thoughts on this product, as well as other products from Organix, check out my review!
Nail Polish Favourite: Maybelline Color Show Nail Lacquer in "Iced Queen"
My-oh-my, this sure is a purdy colour! If you have fair skin like me, you might be able to empathize with the fact that a lot of bright colours, that tend to be popular in the spring and summer, don't always go well with your complection (especially if you are also a ginger kid). I feel like this colour compliments my skin tone beautifully, and is still very appropriate for the this particular time of year. And bonus, these polishes are very inexpensive! If you want to know more about them, and see what other colours I have, check out my review!
Skin Care Favourite: Neutrogena Naturals Face Cleansing + Makeup Remover
I am just going to start off with, I have a review on this product also, so if you are wanting a more in-depth look a this product, click right ---> here. Any-who, HOLY CRAP! What a fantastic cleanser, and what wonders it has done for my skin. Ever since I started using this I have notice a dramatic difference my skin, from the amount of breakouts I have to the overall brightness and freshness of my complection. If your skin is looking dull and tired, I suggest picking up a bottle of this.
Body Care Favourite: Dial Naturals Moisturizing Body Wash in Tangerine & Guava
Live Luxe by Jennifer Lopez. If you know that perfume and love that perfume, you need this body wash in your life. When I say it smells exactly like it, I mean it smells exactly like it. And if you do not know what that perfume smells like, it doesn't matter, because you will love this regardless. This fresh, fruity body wash with a hint of floral will invigorate you first thing in the morning and instantly brighten your mood. Plus, this product is actually very moisturizing and very inexpensive - what have you got to lose?
Fragrance Favourite: Country Chic from Bath and Body Works
OH MY LANTA!...Did the previous favourite count as a fragrance favourite? Hmm...I don't care! OH MY LANTA! Hold on to your panties, we have another perfume dupe! In the 10th grade I got a sample of Sarah Jessica Parker's NYC perfume from the perfume counter at the Bay, and ever since then I have been in love with it. But perfume is so f$%@ing expensive that I can never, ever justify buying a bottle of even the "inexpensive" perfumes ($30.00 is still a bit of a stretch). But Country Chic, from the ever popular Bath & Body Works, smells so much like NYC by SJP, that now I will never half to buy the actual perfume because I can get the fragrance mist for 40 bucks cheaper! And if you have no idea what I am talking about, this body spray has a primarily citrus scent with notes of lovely springtime blossoms mixed in. Simply gorgeous!
Fashion Favourite: 90s Maxi Dress
I got this dress for 50 cents at a second hand store in my town. Ever since then, I have been completely in love with it, and have, particularly, over the month of April. It is so easy to style, and I can dress it up and dress it down. It works in cooler weather and warmer weather, and is so comfortable that I have even sometimes slept in it! I believe it was originally from Sears, but it doesn't matter, this is certainly the best thrift store purchase I have ever made.
Favourite Tea: Walters Bay & Co. Lemon Tea
I had been quite congested over past month (likely from the up again, down again weather), and I needed something to help sooth and clear my throat. I ran out of peppermint tea (which normally does the trick), so I had to resort to lemon. Long story short, I ended up really loving this tea, and it really helped my voice to recover from the manliness it had acquired throughout my various instances of illnesses. Yay for tea!
Favourite Movie: Across the Universe
I don`t want to spoil this for anyone who hasn't seen this beautiful movie, so all I am going to say is, GO WATCH IT.
Favourite Band: Metric
I don't feel like I really have to say much here. Metric has been one of my favourite bands for years, and this past month I rediscovered the glory and beauty of their music. All I have to say that if you are a fan of indie-alternative-rock, you have to listen to Metric. That is all.
