My April Favorites!

Good evening guys! Today I'm here to show you my April favorites! This month I have a couple of beauty, skincare and other random things to show. Let's get right to it!

I made this little collage on Polyvore. Pretty cool huh?

1. St. Ives body washes - I've used many different kind of St. Ives body washes and I love them all! Right now I'm using the Renewing Collagen Elastin one and I love how moisturized your skin feels! I highly recommend these amazing body washes!

2. Sephora Collection Instant Nail Polish Remover - OMG! I am in love with this product! I recently decided to go inside Sephora just to browse around. I saw this from the corner of my eyes and was very intrigued by it. I bought it, went home and dipped my fingers in it, and became amazed by how fast and cool it took my nail polish off! There is a pre soaked foam inside the container so that all you have to do is dip your finger in it. So cool!

3. Aveeno Clear Complexion Foaming Cleanser - This is probably my new favorite cleanser. I saw this at Rite Aid a couple of months ago and I decided to pick it up and try it. I used it for a week straight and my skin was so much clearer than before! I also like that it's a foam because I have oily skin. You only need a couple of pumps and it lathers really well. Love it!

4. Fall Out Boy's "Save Rock and Roll" album - For those who don't know, Fall Out Boy is my favorite band of all time. So when I heard that they were making a new album, I totally freaked out! This album is nothing like their older music, which I like. I like artists who do different types of music styles. My favorites songs are "Alone Together", "Where Did the Party Go?", "My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark (Light 'Em Up)" and "Miss Missing You". I also bought tickets for one of their concerts in September! So excited!

5. Korres Lipstick in 45 Coral - I'm pretty sure I've talked about this lipstick before on my blog. I just love it! It's the perfect coral shade for spring and summer! I need to buy more tubes of this because I'm almost done with mine!

6. Maybelline The Colossal mascara - Another tried and true favorite! This is my HG mascara! It gives amazing length and volume to my tiny lashes! I've purchased at least 4 tubes of this mascara already! Love love love this!

7. TOMS Ash Canvas shoes - I can't believe I haven't tried TOMS until now! My aunt gave me a pair because they were too small for her. I LOVE THEM! My feet feel so comfy and I love how they are all about giving back to those in need. They are kind of expensive but it's for a really good cause! Love them!

What were your favorites?

Monday Questionnaire: April 22, 2013!

Good evening everyone! It's been a while since I've been here. Weekly blogging isn't my strong suit bit I'll try to post something at least once a week. This week was all about organizing at my house. My whole closet is nice and organized. I even ordered some drawer carts for my makeup and I'm so happy with the way it turned out. I can actually see all of my makeup! Enough of that; let's answer some questions!

My makeup organization! So happy about it!

1. What’s the first thought that crossed your mind this morning?
"Ugh, I can't breathe!"
I woke up with a stuffy nose :/

2. Have you been reading anything lately?
Unfortunately no. I do need to re-read The Great Gatsby before it hits theaters though!

3. When was the last time you wore false lashes?
I've never worn false lashes believe it or not! I want to someday!

4. What are your three secrets to happiness?
- Surround yourself with the people you love most.
- Travel often.
- Buy a new lipstick.

5. Do you prefer eye shadow palettes or single pans?
Definitely palettes. I don't want to be searching for specific colors when I could have everything in one palette.

6. What’s one of your imperfections that you cherish?
None unfortunately :/

7. Has a skincare product ever changed your life?
Sunscreen and Clinique's Rinse Off Foaming Cleanser. I can't live without these two products!

8. Do you like your hair better long or short?
Hmm, I'd go with short. Long hair is too high maintenance for me.

9. Is there something you’re currently lemming?
My own car

10. Write yourself a Post-It note:
You can do it!

March Favorites 2013!

Hey everyone! Hope you all had a great April Fool's Day! I didn't do a joke but my mom totally fooled my dad saying she crashed the car! He was furious haha! Let's see what were my favorites this month!

1. Aveeno Continuous Protection Sunblock Lotion for Face SPF 30 - I like to take good care of my skin and I've been reading online how we should wear sunscreen everyday. I've had this for a good while now but only used it for really hot days. Now I use this everyday and I love it! It absorbs right into my skin and doesn't create more oil on my face. It's good under makeup too! A+ on this product!

2. Rite Aid Tugaboos Baby Oil - I can't believe I haven't tried this before until now! I've been wanting to try MAC Cleanse Off Oil since I've heard that it works great at removing eye makeup. So I've been doing some research and came across a review about baby oil on Makeup Alley. People were raving about this being a good eye makeup remover so I tried it and I love it! I use my Shiseido Facial Cotton with it and it removes my eye makeup like a breeze! I definitely suggest that you all try this stuff!

3. Fresh Soy Face Cleanser - I got this in a small kit alongside a mini Supernova mascara (it's okay). NikkiRothBeauty on YouTube raves about this product so I had to try this out! I don't know if it removes makeup well since I use a different cleanser for that but it's great at cleaning my face! My skin has never looked better before using this product! You only need a small amount. The only thing I don't like about it is that it smells weird. Other than that I love it!

4. Olay Fresh Effects Va-Va-Vivid! Powered Contour Cleansing System - I won't talk to much about this product since I do have a review of it here. The only thing I love about this product is the brush that it comes with. It helps deep clean my pores and my face feels super clean. I hate the cleanser that it comes with. It broke me out like crazy! Definitely check out the brush!

5. L'Oreal Infallible Eyeshadow in Bronzed Taupe - I am in love with this eyeshadow! This works great over another favorite this month, Maybelline Color Tattoo in Rich Mahogany. The both paired together makes a great daytime/nighttime bronze smoky eye! The Color Tattoo didn't crease on my super oily lids and they're both insanely pigmented! This is basically my everyday eye look! Unfortunately, Rich Mahogany was limited edition last year but you can use Bad to the Bronze for a similar look. Love these products!

6. bareMinerals SPF 20 Correcting Concealer - I saw this at Sephora last month and bought it on a total whim. I swatched it in store and I loved how creamy it felt on my skin. The next day I used this by itself with no setting powder and I was surprised at how long it lasted! With setting powder it lasts even longer! I'm in the shade Medium 1. This is probably one of my new favorite undereye concealer!

Those were my favorites for the month of March! What were your favorites?! Leave a comment below or tweet me!

Until next time!
