Its April already. Why does it feel like time is going by super fast? I mean, I know we all say that every month, BUT FOR REAL!
It also feels like I havent done one of these in a long time. :( Is this the first Me Gusta Monthly of 2014? oh man, I dont even know anymore! >.<
I dont have much to share this month, but the few things I have are somewhat holy grail for me right now. I mean, its been obsessive usage! When I say favorite I really mean DONT-EVER-LEAVE-ME-OR-MY-LIFE-WILL-NEVER-BE-THE-SAME.
Not really, but you ladies and gents surely understand what I mean by that…right? ONWARD!
To kick things off, I want to start with a fragrance I just cant get enough of. We all know Victoria’s Secret is notorious for their enchanting, mesmerizing scents. But this one? This one slays me every time I smell it. Its Heavenly In Paradise from the Dream Angels line. Holy moly. It smells like a tropical version of heavenly, if thats even possible. I cant truly describe the scent, but its fresh, fruity and beachy. I picked this up on a whim during the semi annual sale a while ago, and didnt think much of it at the time. Needless to say, I am overly obsessed with it. My only gripe…well TWO gripes are that im having a hard time finding it again. I cant find it online either. *sadness* I am not sure if this is one those limited scents, but if it is, I will be heartbroken. My second con is that it doesnt last super long on my skin, at least not like their other body mists do. I do reapply often throughout the day, but the smell is good enough to make that a very minor inconvenience to me. :)
Next up is Tarte’s Be MATTEnificent palette. If you follow this blog, then you already saw the full review I did of this lovely little thing not to long ago. If you want the full review and more details, you can check it out HERE. I dont want to go to deep on this one, since a full review is available…but I will say that this has become my daily palette. I very literally use this everyday, day and night. This is probably one of the more versatile palettes I have purchased and I love it so much!! This was yet another limited edition product (so sorry!). I got mine at Ulta, but it is no longer available there. I have however seen listed on Amazon, if any of you are interested. :)
Another makeup related product for ya: Real Techniques Brushes. OH MY GOD. Just…omg. I know im miserably late on this train, and you can all poopoo me as much as you want for taking so long…I really do finally understand all the hype surrounding these brushes. They literally are some of the best brushes out in the market right now…and dirt cheap for the quality they have. I have a full review coming up in the next few days on the brushes I have, so do keep an eye out for that! For now though, let me just say, THESE KICK BUTT! For anyone curious, I picked mine up at Walgreens. :)
For body, my favorite this month is Fig & Yarrow’s Cardamom+Coffee scrub. I had been eyeing this baby for awhile now and im so excited to have the chance to review it for you guys. A blog post and full review will be coming your way, with other Fig & Yarrow products as well. This is probably one of the most invigorating scrubs I have ever used. Its hard to feel tired and groggy after using this, it really leaves me feeling like a brand new person. Its all natural and feels deliciously luxe. Love, love, love!
Last, but certainly not least…A bit of a random favorite: the TV series Arrow. Yea, another thing I totally slacked on. I started watching it on Netflix. I honestly didnt think that I would enjoy this as much as I do. Im a little surprised at how quickly I was hooked. It probably has nothing to do with how handsome Stephen Amell is …*cough,cough*. I think of it as a trendy, modern spin on Robin Hood. You can watch for yourself and find out though. ;)
Anyway, thats all for now my loves. What were your faves last month? Let a sista know!
Also, I have purple hair now. I figured that should be a favorite as well. What do you guys think? It was a bit of a mission to get it to this point, but if you guys are interested, I can provide a full post with a product list explaining how it was done. Let me know in the comments below if you have any questions. :)
