WHAT I'M LOVING | APRIL 2017


Today is the fourth post in this series, What I'm Loving, where I share what I've been loving that month in the following categories: Makeup/Beauty Products, Music, Home Decor/Products, Food/Drinks, Clothing/Accessories, and Priceless (side note: each month might not include every category I just listed!) You can find March's post here! So here is what I've been loving in April...

Makeup/Beauty Product
  • Neutrogena Hydro Boost Gel-Cream - This is my favorite moisturizer. I have naturally oily skin so moisturizers that are cream based are too much for my skin. A friend recommended this a couple of years ago and I have been using this same one every since. It also only takes just a little bit.
  • Remington® T|Studio™ Pink Silk Wide Wand - Another beauty product that I have had for a couple of years and swear by. This is the only styling tool that will curl my hair properly and I love it. I have been using it a lot more recently and can usually curl all my hair in 30 minutes..I have a lot of (thick) hair!
  • All Over Bronze Glow - This is my favorite bronzer! I have actually had it for a couple of years, because I only apply a little at a time and it's usually on around this time of the year. Where my body tans when I'm out for walks on my lunch break or we are at an event that is held outside but my face doesn't really tan because I have makeup on and it has SPF in it. So that leaves my face and body two different shades, but I just use a tiny bit of this and it helps a ton. 
  • Polly Want a Lacquer? - I am obsessed with this color for spring right now! It's the perfect pop of color and goes well with most of my spring tops. 
Food/Drink
  • Bowtie Chicken Alfredo - This is a Pioneer Woman recipe and it's one of her 16 minute recipes. We loved it and it was so simple to make!
  • Aquafina Sparkling Water, Lemon Lime - I picked some sparkling water up a couple of weeks ago at Kroger to try and love it. I go home everyday for lunch so I just grab one to take back to work with me. It's perfect for that afternoon stretch when I really want something other than just plain water. I tried the lemon lime flavor but there were a lot of other flavors I want to try soon.
  • All the fresh fruit - This time of the year I want to eat all the fruit. Strawberries, pineapples, grapes and apples. I am hoping our grocery store will get some fresh pineapple in soon
  • Homemade biscuits - I made homemade biscuits a few weeks ago and then made FOUR more batches this week. I keep them in the freezer and then pull a couple out when we want them. It cheaper and tastes so much better than store bought biscuits! I'll share the recipe next week.
Home Decor/Products
  • Wallpaper- This is still an ongoing project but we are wallpapering our half-bathroom downstairs and I could not be more excited about it. I can't wait to share when we are finished! The color and design give me all the heart eyes.
Clothing/Accessories
  • Jane.com - I ordered a few summer shirts from Jane.com last week and they were such a good price! I am obsessed with all the floral for spring and summer and they have PLENTY of that to go around. You just can't beat those prices on there either. 
Entertainment 
  • The Pioneer Woman - I have probably mentioned it about 50 times in the past month, but I have been obsessed with The Pioneer Woman and her show. I have watched all the ones on the Food Network app and I am already looking for more.
  • Designated Survivor - This is one of our favorite shows and it has gotten so intense lately and I love it!
  • Hockey- We are at the end of hockey season and our Preds are doing SO good in the playoffs! There is usually some type of hockey game on our TV these nights lol.
  • Summer Days Playlist - The days are getting warmer and the sun is going down later which means that summer is on it's way! My favorite time of the year is almost here and I have been listening to my summer playlist on repeat!
Priceless
  • Our day spent in Cookeville. It was the best day and was so, so good to see everyone again. We are hoping to get back up there at least once a month (if not more) this summer.
  • A good report from my dad's cardiologist...Praise!!!!!
  • My BIL and best friends getting engaged! So many exciting things coming up!
  • Spending the whole day with my family.
  • Two days of PTO in the middle of the week...it made for a long week but it was a wonderful break in the middle of the week!
  • Watching my sister get and award and a surprise scholarship!!
  • Celebrating my sister turning 20 and baking her a fun cake!
  • Late night sonic dates with Matthew...half price milkshakes are back which means is basically SUMMER!
  • Sitting out on the back patio with Matthew and talking about anything and everything while Reagan plays...I can't wait for more summer nights like this!
  • Celebrating Easter with our families and actually having good weather on Easter for once!
  • Getting FREE tickets to the Preds game and having incredible seats!

  1. I feel like I have to say Let's Go Blues, living in St. Louis! You know I share your love of The Pioneer Woman - I need to look into that app! Your moisturizer sounds really good. My skin is oily, and that sounds like a great one to try!
