March & April Favorites

Its hard to believe that the year is a quarter of the way year over and that summer is around the corner! Check out all the things I've been loving the past two months below. 

Makeup & Skin Care

1. Real Techniques Blush Brush | 7. Real Techniques Powder Brush
I've fallen in love with the real techniques blush and powder brush over the past month. The blush brush is a must have for any frequent blush wearer and I like using the powder brush to apply my face powder and bronzer. I've recently been going for the minimal look, and both of these brushes have been doing the trick.

2. Maybelline Fit Me Blush
I love all things blush, the Maybelline Fit Me blush has become my go to blush for the past couple of months. Just like the Cover Girl bronzer, the blush helps add some warmth and color to my face.

3. Rimmel Wonder Wing Eyeliner
Creating a winged eyeliner look has always been a struggle for me, I just can't seem to get it right whenever I try. The Rimmel wonder wing eyeliner has been a life savor for me, it has made creating a winged eye so much easier. The eyeliner has a wing shaped stamp applicator that allows you to make the perfectly shaped winged eye. The tip is super flexible and is easy to apply. My only gripe is that the formula is not black enough, so I end up using a another liner to darken in up. But overall all I've been obsessed with the wonder wing and have been using it every day.

10. Pond's Dry Skin Cream
The Pond's dry skin cream has been my go to moisturizer for while now, I featured it in my 10 under $10 must have skin care products. It does a great job of hydrating my skin after I cleanse it and makes a great base for my skin before I apply my makeup. The formula is thick but still breathable and at price under $10 is a must have.

11. Milani Conceal + Perfect Powder | 9. Cover Girl Queen Collection Bronzer
My favorite combo has been the Milani conceal and perfect powder and the Cover Girl Queen Collection Bronzer. I get the coverage I want from the powder and the bronzer helps helps bring some warmth to my face. I've been loving this look all month long, I just add some blush, a little highlighter, mascara, eyeliner, eyebrow gel and I'm ready to go.

12. Too Faced Better Than Sex Mini Waterproof Mascara
I've loved the Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara for awhile, its great at giving me the false lash look. When I saw they had a mini version I just had to have it. I like to layer different mascara's, so carrying around multiple mascara's in my makeup bag can make things a bit bulky. Having the mini version lessens the bulk but I still get goodness of the mascara.


15. 2018 Apple iPad and Apple Pencil
I've lusted after the iPad pro and Apple pencil combo for a long time, but I just could not justify the $600+ price tag. When I learned that the new 2018 iPad would support the Apple pencil I had to have it. Fortunately, I was able to trade in my old iPad Air for a credit that made buying the iPad and pencil a little less expensive. I've been using the Apple pencil to edit photos, type notes, study, and create blog post.

Music & Television 

4. Nicki Minaj - Chun Li
Nicki Minaj is back with two new singles, Barbie Tingz and Chun-Li. I've never been a stan for Nicki, but I've always appreciated her music. I've been listening to Chun Li on repeat, its a banger of a song and I can't help but love it. Her fourth studio album drops soon.

5. Westworld Season 2
Westworld is back after being off-air for more than a year, and I could not be happier. I love shows that make you think and don't spoon feed you information. Westworld is a combo of all things I love in a televison show, it always keeps you guessing and a lot of the plot points pay off in such creative and amazing ways. Watch season 1 and 2 of Westworld on HBO.

6. MNEK - Tongue
Tongue is MNEK new single from his upcoming debut album. I've been a big fan of MNEK for a long time, every time he has released a new song I've added it to my favorites. MNEK does not disappoint with this new song, its a definite example of why I love MNEK.

8. Drake - Nice For What
Nice For What is the lead single to Drake's his fifth studio album, Scorpion, which releases in June. I fell in love with the music video for the song before I really started to like the song. I love Drake's love of girl power, the video features some amazing female actresses, comedians, athletes, musicians, and influencers that are all at the top of their game.

13. Legion Season 2
Legion is back! Season 1 ended with a cliff hanger and I like many others I was anxious to see what the show would be like when it returned. So far the show has been amazing, I love that the show is not afraid to be eccentric and different from the norm. This show is definitely not a traditional super hero story, director Noah Hawley is not afraid to be a little weird and be super creative on how he films and directs the show. If you love shows that have filmed in unique voice and are willing to take big risk Legion is for you! Watch season 1 and 2 on FX.

14. Calvin Harris ft Dua Lipa - One Kiss
One Kiss is the second single from Calvin Harris upcoming sixth studio album. The song features English singer songwriter Dua Lipa. I love a good uptempo dance song, when I'm creating a blog post like this one I like to listen to upbeat music, this song is perfect for that.
