What I Was Loving in April

I’ll seriously never get over this cheesy meme.  Justin Timberlake was my first celebrity crush, and NSYNC* was my first boy band obsession, so it was only fitting to include this goofy bit into my post today.  I’m wrapping up April by sharing some of my favorite things from the past month. From clothing to food to everything in between.  Keep on reading to find out more!

Favorite clothing items

I think I wore this graphic tee three times in one week. It’s so cute & comfy! (See it styled here)

This dress is new to my collection, and I kinda want to live in it. While I haven’t shared it on the blog yet, you can see it on my Instagram right here!

I picked up these pants right before my trip to Florida. They’re so lightweight that even in the hot sun, I never broke a sweat!

Favorite accessories

I’ve definitely been over-wearing this necklace (featured in this post)! It’s out of stock right this second, but it’ll be back soon!

White shoes are a necessity in the spring and summer. So naturally, when I realized I didn’t own any, I ran out to grab this pair. I’ve never met a more comfortable pair of heels in my life. I wore them 7/8 days we were in Florida – and came out 100% blister-free!

Favorite skincare and makeup items

I’ve been completely swearing by this moisturizer for over a month now. It was in my birthday gift from Sephora, and I loved it so much I splurged on the full size product!

After my 8 day flu in March, I went to finally put makeup on again, only to realize my foundation had disappeared! I sent my mom to the drugstore, and found that my old favorite from high school was not as great as I remembered.  I called Sephora, and sure enough they had one left in stock in my shade for this foundation. I’ve been loving it ever since.

Having a crappy day? Face mask. Feeling some serious acne coming on? Face mask. Need to treat myself? Face mask. Specifically this face mask!

Favorite books

I finished this book in one day because I loved it so much. I just couldn’t put it down. I was thrilled when I found out the sequel is being released at the end of May!

I forgot how much I truly adored this series until I started reading the books all over again. I flew through the first and I’m finishing the second. It’s been 5 years since reading and I am just as sucked in as the first time!

Favorite TV shows and movies

Brandon and I have been thoroughly enjoying The Office. I’ve never watched it all the way through, so this is a serious treat. It’s been a long time since a show made me laugh this hard.

While I will never stop singing along to The Greatest Showman, or feeling proud of Black Panther, watching Avengers: Infinity Wars on Saturday night had me feeling some sort of way. If you haven’t seen it yet, you gotta (but make sure you watch all 18 movies leading up to it, first)!

Favorite food and drinks

I had a mango smoothie in Florida that changed my life. Come to find out it was literally three ingredients: honey mangos, ice, and water. I’m planning to recreate it every day for forever. 😂

When I got back from vacation, I called my sister and told her I wanted to try meal-prepping. So I grabbed all my products from Lidl and went to her house for an afternoon. We made two meals and it took an hour and a half. The thing I’m most excited about? Oven-roasted brussels sprouts. They are to DIE for, ya’ll!

Favorite blog posts

I really loved all the colors in this post. Plus, the outfit was hella comfy!

What better way to enjoy a photoshoot then to end it with delicious burgers? This post was such fun to shoot!

I’m not sure I’ve ever loved an outfit (or set of photos) more than the ones in this post!

Your favorite blog posts

Not surprising at all, the two top posts for the month of April were both about RVA! You guys loved this one and this one more than any of my outfit posts – by a landslide!

Favorite spots in RVA

If you follow me on Instagram, you may have noticed my mom and I frequent this spot nearly every weekend. Their bubble tea is delicious!

I’m so happy that my favorite rooftop bar is finally opened for the season! Head over to this dreamy location for some yummy drinks and the best view of the city!

    Black Panther was my favorite Marvel movie. I saw Infinity Wars and I didn’t like it. My fiance loved it.
