I liked April. And not just because the weather in Boston finally warmed up. I visited one of my best friends from college in NYC for her birthday, got in plenty of beautiful sunset esplanade runs in, went out with old coworkers, and found a new apartment to live in with one of my close friends next year!
Here are some of the things I found great enjoyment from using, wearing, listening, watching and playing this month:
NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer – I picked this up in NYC and I’m pretty sure have worn it every day since my return. Not only does it cover up the redness on the dry parts of my cheeks, it actually makes my skin look and feel healthier with every wear (I guess that’s the moisturizer part). For someone who is a little scared to take the foundation plunge, I would highly recommend this product.
Essie Back in the Limo – This is the color I chose for my fingernails and tootsies for my mani-pedi in NYC. I honestly did not think it was going to be as shear as it was but I really didn’t care in the end because the color was so pretty. It’s an ever so slightly peachy toned light pink that very natural and delicate but still noticeable.
Trivia Crack – I have yet to beat someone in this game but that’s not stopping me from playing this game on my phone whenever possible. You challenge friends to a game and the first person to win 5 categories of trivia wins. Pretty self-explanatory and simple but oh-so addicting.
Grey’s Anatomy – I’ve been a Grey’s fan since its conception way back in 2005 and last year I admit, I kind of fell off the band wagon. This changed when I started seeing commercials for the show in the form of clips from season 1 and I started feeling super nostalgic and I cracked. Hello Netflix
Maybelline Define-A-Brow – Lately I’ve been lazy with my brows and haven’t had the patience to fill them in with a brush and shadow. It’s times like these when this brow pencil comes in handy. While I’ve not tried the Anastasia Brow Wiz, I think this pencil does the trick. Plus I use the comb in the brush to separate my eye lashes when they’re being fussy so double purpose!
Little Mix – I discovered this band in the midst of the “OMG ZAYNE’S LEAVING 1D” episode as Zayne is engaged to Perrie Edwards of Little Mix. I thought I would check them out because there had to be some reason they were the number one girl band in the UK and had pretty much become the new Spice Girls. And let me tell you they rock. They don’t overly sexualize themselves the way that I think other girl bands nowadays tend to do and their music is super catchy! If you haven’t heard them before, check out their song Move. You won’t be disappointed.
