My Favorite Products for April

Its almost May y’all, which means its almost pool season. I am so excited I can barely contain myself. I spent half of this lovely Spring Break week flat on my back with some sort of weird virus. It was probably the first time I was ever glad to not be traveling. The worst is being sick while traveling…so cheers to small victories. I’m excited to be sharing some of my favorites things with you all today! From shoes to clothes, to make up, to must-have household items these things are my favorites for this month!

Secura Instant-Steam Portable Steamer

I was first turned on to this by Merrick, from Merrick’s Art. Let’s face it who irons anymore. I know there are a few of us who still pull out the iron from time to time, but this baby is amazing. I was really skeptical about this little guy and how it would compare to a standard steamer. This is probably one of the best appliance purchases I have made in a really long time


O’Keeffe’s Working Hands lotion

I can’t even remember where I heard about this from originally, both myself and Jena, from Sweet Tea & Style, were looking for this at the same time on one of our shopping trips. This stuff is legit! My hands get so dry in the winter here on the East Coast and this fixes it and keeps my hands looking young and feeling soft in a hot second!

DIFF blue light glasses

I know it seems like a fad, but I am loving this technology and for sure noticed a difference in my eyes after writing for a long time. Getting them from DIFF is just icing on the cake because not only do you get a 20% off discount right here, but DIFF also operates on a one-to-one idea like Tom’s. Every time a pair of glasses is purchased DIFF donates a pair of reading glasses to someone in need. I just snagged these Jade tortoiseshell glasses and I love them so much!

Initial Necklace

I spotted this necklace on Groupon and had seen it floating around on Instagram. I decided to give the Groupon one a whirl and I love it. It’s the perfect length for layering with my RozieJune chockers and so far I have had no problems with it irritating my skin, which is something I worry about constantly with my crazy sensitive skin. These are still available right now so go grab yours now!!!

Music Themed Pillow

After I posted this picture of my daughter with her books I got so many DMs about this pillow from Etsy. When I was painting my playroom I decided to go all out and get a new rug, new lamp, and new curtains. A refresh sometimes is just really good for the soul. So, of course, I decided to grab some new pillows for the couch. If you have spent half a second on my Instagram you know that I have a very serious relationship with music and I wanted that reflected in my refreshed room. I found this pillow cover (to reuse my existing pillows I didn’t like anymore – save $$$) and it is such amazing quality and arrived so quickly. Check out JAW Decor on Etsy because not only do they have this adorable pillow but they have city pillows and state pillows that are the cutest. I have a few more on my list!

Elizabeth Ashlie Earrings

I saw these earrings on Instagram of course on Lauren Brown’s insta (the owner) and these immediately caught my eye. They are so dainty and feminine while also being a semi-statement piece with the length and the tassle. The key for me though was that the tassle was such a sweet color and wasn’t ginormous! The style is the “kate” and I love these so much. She has so many earrings that are just lovely and you should make sure to check her shop out. There are tons of other goodies on there as well.
