Loreal True Match Blendable Crayon Concealer | I’m really picky with make-up due to my acne prone skin.  I also don’t want to step out of my house everyday “instagram-ready”.  I just like a subtle concealer that matches my tone.  Loreal True Match blends really well with my mineral makeup and it doesn’t cause me any breakouts.  You can find this concealer at Ulta Beauty. | Repurchase … Yes!

H.E.R. Volume 1 + 2 | Music is a funny thing with me because I don’t listen to anything new because everything sounds the same + but that’s my age talking.  I got turned on to H.E.R. from my daughter who’s music mostly drives me crazy.  This one actually stuck with me.  It’s melodic + sultry + and soulful which is all the components of a great LP.  H.E.R. Volume 1 + 2 is available to stream on Tidal + Spotify + and iTunes.

BACKSTORY | Released 2017
This release combines the EPs H.E.R., Vol. 1 (released in September 2016) and H.E.R., Vol. 2 (released in June 2017) and adds six new tracks (referred to as B-sides), including “Best Part,” a duet that appeared on Daniel Caesar’s Freudian. The previously unissued songs are in the same vein as the material on the EPs — predominantly slow and atmospheric, vulnerable yet assured, verging on mood music but with a little more sonic, melodic, and lyrical substance than the average set from H.E.R.’s stylistic peers.

Shea Moisture Coconut Oil Daily Hydration | I really like this Shea Moisture Virgin Coconut line.  The lotion is really creamy and thick but absorbs well.  My only issue is the design of the bottle because it’s a little hard to squeeze it out.  I actually keep mine upside-down to make it easier.  This Shea Moisture line is available at Target + Amazon and directly from the Shea Moisture site and retails for about $10 dollars. | Repurchase … Maybe

Atelier Perfume Clémentine California| This is a citrus + fruity + green scent that I got as a sample but repurchased because the scent was so beautiful.  It’s actually perfect for spring.  Keep in mind that everyone’s body chemistry is different so scents smell different on everyone.  I just so happen to like how this one smells on me.  Available at Sephora. | Repurchase … Yes

Thayers Witch Hazel w/Coconut Water | I am loving this toner + which I actually blogged about in my April Newbies.  It feels on my skin after I cleans.  I also use to remove my make up, so it has several purposes for me.  Thayers Witch Hazel is available at most retailers but the infused coconut water is available at Whole Foods. | Repurchase … Yes

Talking As Fast As I Can: From Gilmore Girls to Gilmore Girls  | This book is on my Good reads list as well as my Spring Wish List.  I love the Gilmore Girls series and I’m actually re-watching it this summer.  This book is a collection of essays by Lauren Graham who plays Lorelai Gilmore on the beloved series.  This book also goes behind the scenes on the reboot for the series.  Talking as Fast as I Can is available on Amazon.

That does it for my April favs.  Thanks so much for taking the time to visit my blog today.  Don’t forget to “Like” + “Comment” + and “Follow”.
