April Favorites

Elf – High Definition Undereye Setting Powder

Sometimes I never know how much I love a product until I run out of it. I then go into the great debate of repurchasing or trying something new. I ran out of this recently, tried a few different powders in my collection (nothing I had could compare), and wound up repurchasing this in April. This powder perfectly sets concealer, brightens up the skin, and is so inexpensive.

Maybelline – The Blushed Nudes

The shades in this palette are gorgeous, wearable, and work so well together. Pigmentation is not as strong as it could be, but it’s a great palette if you are looking for your makeup to be a bit less bold. There are also tips for blending shadow combos on the back of the packaging, which I found super helpful!

Rimmel – Natural Bronzer

I had never used an actual bronzer until I picked this baby up a few weeks ago… now I don’t want to put it down! I use it mainly in the hollows of my cheeks, temples, and top of my forehead. I now understand why a cool-toned matte bronzer gives the most natural look.

Flower Phone Case

Confession… this is not the exact phone case I fell in love with this month. I (like all females everywhere) got sucked into Target’s dollar section recently and found the cutest flower case for my phone and now can’t find it anywhere online to share! 😦 This one is comparable though, a clear case with a flower print. Super cute and perfect for spring.

“Yes Please” by Amy Poehler

What’s not to love about Amy Poehler?! She is so funny, such a great role model for young women, and has tons of great stories to share in this book. It’s a really fun, funny, and quick read that I would recommend to anyone looking for something light-hearted to pick up.

Art in Bloom – Milwaukee, WI

This weekend I went to Art in Bloom in Milwaukee with my mom and it was amazing! (I am an art appreciator and she has a small business in floral arranging, so it was a perfect match.) If you are unfamiliar, the event works like this… The museum picks about 40-50 art pieces to showcase. The pieces are randomly assigned to floral designers, who must use the piece for inspiration to create a floral arrangement. The arrangements are showcased for a few days and at the end a panel votes on a number of categories.

Guided tours were offered through the museum, as the pieces  are scattered around and matched up together. The tour-guide provided tidbits of information about the pieces and artists, which gave an extra added meaning to the experience. My favorite is below…

If you ever get the chance to go to this event, I hope you take advantage of it! It’s my understanding that it happens at art museums across the nation, so be sure to check out the area nearest to you, XOXO.
