April 2018 Monthly Obsessions

Happy Fri-YAY! In continuing with “monthly obsessions” series (check out last month’s here), today is the last Friday of April, so here we are! I honestly can’t believe it’s come so quickly…2018 is flying by in typical yearly fashion. I always want time to slow the heck down but as they say, time stops for no man!! In some ways, I’m grateful time is going quickly because trials end faster and unpleasant situations don’t stay for long…but in other ways, I wish I had forever to stay young with my sweet husband in this time of life we are in. MOVING ON THO (the tangents have been REAL today while writing blog posts): I am going to be sharing 10 things I’ve been LOOOOOOVING this month! Let’s jump into this.


April 2018 Monthly Obsessions

Head Scarves

Y’all. Y’ALL. DO NOT SLEEP ON THESE. Over the past weekend (literally like less than a full week ago) – I discovered headscarves thanks to Chelsie. She always wears them and TOTALLY rocks them and I wanted to try the trend out for myself. I plan on doing a full tutorial showing you my favorite styles and where to buy them but for now rest assured that you won’t go wrong with cute headscarves. Buy all of them. Right now. Just. Add to cart.

Adidas Superstars

These have been bopping around in my closet and airport style since Christmas and I’ve yet to really include them in anything. I wear them several times a week, they are my “errand” shoes and they are SO comfortable on my feetsies. They are also 100% instagrammable and I’m not ashamed to admit that’s like half the reason I buy things. Ok? Ok.

Philosophy Micellar Water

This stuff is the SHIZ. Taking off my makeup at night has never been easier. I use a bamboo washcloth because it’s gentler on my face than a regular washcloth and just pour a little bit of this directly onto the cloth and then onto my face. I don’t even need to use my Dermalogica Precleanse to break up my makeup. It isn’t greasy, it doesn’t make me break out and it even removes waterproof mascara. It’s a winner.

Boom Chicka Pop Sweet & Salt Kettle Corn

I discovered this back in February actually but I’ve been eating this nonstop this month in particular. I am rarely NOT craving this at any given moment. It’s the perfect cross between salty and sweet, they have a nice crunch and it’s almost healthy so you can’t even feel bad eating the entire bag in one sitting. Not TOO bad anyways.

Cheetah Print Flats

A few months ago, I had to get rid of my cheetah flats because I had worn completely through the soles. That is the second pair of cheetah flats I’ve worn through and I just haven’t replaced them yet. Then, while in Utah with my girls, I found a pair of flats at Burlington Coat Factory for $9.99 and basically THREW my money at the cashier. These were LESS than $10. Let that soak in and then run to your nearest BCF.

Cube (phone & key tracker)

This stuff is AWESOME. They actually sent me this little cube to test out a few weeks ago and I have been testing it out and using regularly and it’s changed my dang life. If you ask my husband, he will tell you that I lose my phone and my keys constantly. I never am not looking for one or the other. You can’t tell me you haven’t been running out the door and forgotten your keys and then you can’t find them and then you’re late and it’s the worst. Cube changes that because as soon as you realize you are missing your keys, you just tap a little button on your phone and bam. You can hear your keys ringing in the distance and out the door you go. Magic.

Ampersand As Apostrophe Leather Handbags

I LOVE THIS HANDBAG COMPANY. I got this bag as a late birthday present last month but didn’t really use it until this month and it’s been my go-to since that moment in time. The leather is SO nice, the hot pink color is vibrant and beautiful. I actually had to look up the company because I had never heard of the brand before and they have so many awesome handbag styles. They even have this incredible melon color that I probably need asap. Check all their bags out and #treatyoself

NYX Butter Gloss in Creme Brûlée 

I didn’t try this gloss forever because I am the worst when it comes to trying really trendy products. I like to be pretend like I don’t jump on bandwagons but in reality I just wait until they’re pretty irrelevant and then get them. #facts So now that I’ve finally tried the butter gloss, I will never go back. This shade in particular is my perfect peachy nude and has replaced every single gloss in my collection and also it smells live heaven’s pearly gates.

Ardell Faux Minx Wispies Lashes

These are the bomb.com! I am always trying new lashes because I feel like I just haven’t found a lash that I am obsessed with and want to wear for the rest of my life in every situation. These lashes may just take the cake. I really love the look of faux mink lashes, but often times the band is just WAY to thick and I hate the way they feel on my eyes. My eyes are SO sensitive to lashes. These faux mink lashes have the thinnest band and I barely felt them all day long. Win win win win win!

Versona Sunnies

I bought these a few weeks ago because I was in Louisiana and I was finally near a Versona. I have had a gift card for this store in my wallet for over a year, no lie, but you can’t make purchases online with a gift card and I don’t have one near me. I love Versona and SO WISH there was one local. These sunnies were under $10 and they make me feel like a fashion QUEEN. I feel completely bada$$ while wearing them and they on rotation in my purse right now.
