My 5 Favorites: April 2016 Edition

1. Athleta Linen Reverie Pants

These were a recent birthday present and I really LOVE them because they are soooo comfortable. And they are not workout pants.

That's all I really need to say.

Actually, they ARE on sale right now. Only $25.99!! #worthit

2. LUSH Rehab Shampoo

So this month, there are 2 products from LUSH featured...which I wouldn't normally do, but these both have saved my life this past month!

For the past 4 months, I have been DISTRAUGHT about my hair in Florida. I was getting out of the shower and my hair would still felt like it had a waxy film on it :( I have spent so much money attempting to find the perfect shampoo/conditioner but nothing was working.

THEN, I went to LUSH. I was desperately reading the descriptions of the hair products, but still felt a little lost and they weren't cheap so I didn't want to go purchasing them all. The kind saleswoman gave me 3 different samples to try for free and I fell in love with the Rehab shampoo!

I am finally showering and feeling cleaner! Amaze! I will never take clean hair for granted ever again.

3. 100% Pure Mascara

I think I've linked to 100% pure in the past as a 5 Favorite, but this mascara has really been my only form of make-up for the past couple months (perks of working from home!) I do find that it runs easily if I get a little teary-eyed - yesterday, my husband made me laugh so hard I cried and it went right along with the tears! - so I don't recommend for those sad (or overly happy!) times....or sweaty workouts!

What I like about 100% Pure is that the makeup is made with fruit dyes and are 100% natural and cruelty-free products.

4. Snapchat ~ kmm810

I am totes on board with Snapchat. I've actually had it for many years, but mostly used it for connecting 1-1 with people...however, I did a quick grocery tour of Target a few weeks back and had so many people tell me how helpful it was! Then, I just started sharing more and more. It's even more fun because some of my favorite bloggers are also on there. Here's a list of my favorites to follow:

  • Balanced Bites - @dianesanfilippo

  • Julie Bauer - @paleomg

  • Cassy Joy - @fedandfit

5. LUSH Fresh Farmacy

ANOTHER LUSH story. So last September, my sister-in-law was getting married and I was her Matron of Honor. We were both a litttttttle stressed out and as a result, we had a bit of acne the week of the wedding. We both rushed to LUSH (again, in desperation) to help with our break-outs.

The guy was so overly nice and hooked us up with 3 awesome products, one of which was the Fresh Farmacy soap bar. It is fantastic. I used the whole bar over the next month or so, and must have forgotten about it...

Mentioned above, my hair was a mess in FL, AND naturally, my skin was freaking out as well. When I got my Rehab shampoo, I also remembered this little gem and bought some more. Oh. My. Goodness. So happy I did. My skin is starting to look like someone who is 28 (vs the 16 I was rocking the past few months!)

"Feel like you have the world’s most sensitive skin? Allow us to prescribe you a bar of Fresh Farmacy, our calamine-based cleansing bar. Fresh Farmacy contains chamomile extract to calm, rose and lavender to soothe dry patches and tea tree to clear up any blemishes."

That's it for this month!!
