Last month on Twitter I ran a poll asking y’all if I should start a monthly favorite series, and I think you can guess what the results were. So by request, let’s get into things!
Book Favorite: Maybe in Another Life
I ate up books in April. I’ve been on such a book kick lately and I’m absolutely loving it. For awhile I was all about YA fiction, and then I started picking up some Adult Fiction. The favorite for this month is a Adult Fiction book called Maybe in Another Life by Taylor Jenkins Reid. I’ve had this on my TBR list for awhile now after seeing it being reviewed by some other bloggers.
I was initially drawn in by the way the book was laid out: it’s told in alternating chapters about one girl, Hannah, and what would happen if she went home with a boy or she went home with her best friend. It reminded me of those books where you chose the ending. I used to love the Goosebumps version of those!
Anyways, this book was amazing and changed my perspective on life. Definitely a must read.
I’ve also been loving reading outside. I’m all about soaking up as much sun and fresh air as possible! I even sat on my car and read a couple days ago because I didn’t want to sit in the grass.
Beauty Favorite: ColourPop
I placed a pretty decent sized order from ColourPop this past month and it just made me fall deeper in love with the brand. I got seven Ultra Matte Liquid Lipsticks and one Super Shock Highlight.
The lipsticks were in a set called “Moment of Weekness” (on sale for $28 right now!!!) and each one is named after a day in the week. Not going to lie I mostly just ordered this because it had a black shade in it, but I actually haven’t even used it yet! Instead, I’ve fallen in love with the bright pink shade, Wednesday, the purple shade, Thursday, and nude shade, Sunday.
The highlight I got is in the shade Stole the Show (on sale for $6 now!!!) and it certainly did at my family’s Easter dinner. My cousin, sister, and aunt all pointed out how glowy I looked. Basically, I’m obsessed.
Music Favorite: Do Re Mi by Blackbear
So fun fact: I can listen to almost every type of music. Pop, country, EDM, alternative, acoustic, rock, hip hop, rap, and even some screamo. Most people don’t know this about me because the only artists I ever talk about are Taylor Swift, Shawn Mendes, and Ed Sheeran.
I saw screenshots of this song pop up on my Twitter feed a few times at the beginning of the month, but never took the time to listen to it. But when it showed up on one of my Spotify playlists I fell in love with it. New life motto.
It gets my hype for the gym and reminds me not to put up with people who are toxic.
Random Favorite: Influenster Ivy VoxBox
I was lucky enough to receive my very first VoxBox from Influenster this month! Basically, I was sent a few products to test and review honestly. Which has been really fun and forced me to change up my routine and give my staple products a break.
Plus, can we just talk about how cute this box is?! Like I’m in love.
