April Favorites

Is April seriously over? 
Whew - that was fast!  And now it's May :) 
My favorite month of the year!  

I have been loving some fun things over the past month, and thought I would share them with you!

First up:

Pixi Nail Colour.Opens in a new window

Pixi Nail Polish in "Paradise Pink"
I got this at Target after seeing a friend wearing it.  It is SUCH a fun color for spring and summer.  Bright pink with a purple/blue undertone.  

I got a sample of this from Sephora recently, and WOW.  It makes my lashes look so full and long.  I'm not a fake lashes kind of gal, but this really mimics that look - hence the name! 
(And I love the little round tip - great for the inner and outer lashes)

Fresh Lip Treatment  in "Rose"
I got this in a Sephora birthday gift, and I have been loving it!  It also came with the regular Sugar one, and that is great too.  I like the subtle tint that the "Rose" one gives, and it goes on so smoothly and effortlessly.  I have heard great things about these Fresh products, but I couldn't bring myself to spent that much money on "chapstick".  This is WAY better than regular chapstick.  It really does feel like a treatment. My lips feel nourished and moisturized for hours.  

Halls Defense Blueberry Cough Drops
Ok this is weird, I know.  But I had a sore throat last weekend, and picked these up at Walgreens. And they are soooooo yummy!  And of course, they made my throat feel much better :)

Bought it. Tried it. Loved it.  New favorite beverage :)
Ingredients: Coconut Water, Coconut puree, Pineapple puree, Vitamin C.

I found these delicious treats on Pinterest, and I've already made several batches.  They are so yummy and refreshing!  I made the first batch into popsicles, and then made another batch to pour out into an empty muffin tin. I froze the muffin tin, until I could pop the "Pina Colada Pucks" out of the tin. (Run under warm water to loosen.) THEN, I keep the individual frozen pucks in a gallon-sized baggie in the freezer, and whenever I'm making a smoothie, I just pop in 2-3 of those little guys, instead of ice or frozen fruit.  AMAZING!

swim suit

Another Pinterest find that I am LOVING (but I can't seem to find anywhere!)  
Anyone, anyone, have you seen this suimsuit?? 

Do you have any favorites of the month?!
Do share :)
