{Monthly Favorites} April 2014

Happy Monday loves, yup I'm that person that says happy Monday and people hate. 

We had a great weekend with friends and family and the Color Run went great! I will be sharing pictures and details later on this week in my Five on Friday post.


It's time to share my April faves with you, and wow I'm actually getting it up before the next month this time… This month I have a mix of new and rediscovered products. 


Crest Be Dynamic toothpaste- we've tried and liked the Lime Spearmint Zest and Vanilla Mint Sparkle. There is also a Mint Chocolate one, I don't think we'll be trying that one though.

NYX Butter Gloss in Eclair- These are amazing, great pigment and not sticky. When I want just a little color, this has been my go to. 

L'Oreal Infallible Shadows- I own and love the shades Iced Latte, Amber Rush and Pink Sapphire. I kind of forgot about them for a while, but they are so pretty and stay put! I've been reaching for them a lot lately. 

Sally Hansen The Now Brow Perfect Arch Brow Kit- I bought this on a whim and I'm not sure how or why I've lived without it. Serious game changer!  


Save the Blowdry Shower Cap- Ok ladies, who is with me on the "dry shampoo, stretch it as long as you possibly can" thing with our hair?? Wait until you read my hair post tomorrow, you'll definitely understand why I do this! I have to wear a shower cap, any ounce of humidity ruins my hair. The standard shower caps are ok, but I always manage to end up with wet hair on my neck area and it drives me insane. This one is amazing! You have to check them out if you stretch your hair like me and have to wear a cap. Here is why I will never be without mine and love it-


-Tight enough to keep everything OUT, but comfortable.
-Great quality, not cheap feeling like most.
-Soft micro towel material inside.
-You can also turn it inside out and use it to cover your hair when wearing a mask or hair treatment. 

What is something YOU have been loving this month? 

*I was provided a Save the Blowdry shower cap last year, it's now available in the US and I could not wait to share. It's a great product for me and my needs!

  21. Every time I'm at the drugstore I pick up the L'oreal Infallible Shadow in Pink Sapphire, admire it's beauty, and then always put it back. Why do I do that??? It is obviously meant to be part of my collection. Glad to see you enjoy it, I'll definitely pick it up next time.
    Great post!
