Birthday Wish-List :)

So my birthday is on Monday, and I’m going to be 24 years old! I can’t even believe it…time flies. I know that I may be a little too old  to make a birthday wish-list, but hey- why not. It’s always fun to compile an assortment of things that you’d like to have (remember my want-list?) just so you have goals, and something to look forward to in general 🙂

Here is my most recent want-list…birthday edition!

From left to right:

1) I am dying for a nice camera- ever since I started blogging, (and religiously reading other blogs) I’ve been itching to up my photo game. I love the Cannon EOS Rebel t3i digital camera, and I believe it shoots video too…which would be amazing!

2) I love the Dogeared Karma necklace- I believe in treating everyone kindly, and fair because at the end of the day what goes around, come right back around- and that’s the truth! It’s a nice reminder…and I’ve been dying for a necklace just like that for years 🙂

3) I’m always looking to expand my Gelish collection!

4) I would love a cute pair of lady loafers or Sperrys in a cute color…maybe red!

5) Calvin Klein Euphoria perfume- I’ve been obsessed with this scent since I sampled it in Cosmopolitan a couple of months ago.

6) I’ve been so in love with the peachy/pink Maryanne Kate Spade quilted tote, but the gold one is my new favorite!

7) Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage Concealer

8) Laura Mercier Silk Creme Foundation

My friends and family always get me the sweetest, most amazing gifts without even asking- they are the most thoughtful bunch, and I am a very lucky girl!

I’m really looking forward to spending some time with my best girlfriends, my boyfriend, and my family this weekend- that’s the best way to celebrate a birthday!

April Favorites

Over the past month I’ve picked up a bunch of new products; more so than normal. I though it’d be appropriate to do an April favorites post and share five of my newest faves with you. Enjoy!

1) Neutrogena Body Oil

My Mom swears by this product and picked up a bottle for me to try. It is applied to your entire body immediately after you get out of the shower. The oil is light, but effective. It combines with the water on your body and soaks into the skin to help keep it hydrated all day long. It is not greasy, and the scent is actually pleasant. My favorite part is that it makes moisturizing much quicker, and easier!

New fan! 🙂

2) Sally Hansen Maximum Growth Cuticle Pen

You may know about my obsession with cuticle oil, balm, and moisturizer products if you read one of my older posts– but I have found another one to add to the list! My Sephora cuticle pen ran out a while ago and I had yet to make a trip to the mall to replace it. The other day while at CVS I noticed this product and decided to give it a try. I am so excited about it because it works just as well- if not better than the Sephora brand (and it’s $5 cheaper)! 😉 This pen actually expels oil, as opposed to the oily/cream from the other pen. I really love it, and have been using it so many times per day that I may have to get another one soon!

I highly suggest you pick one up!

3) Garnier BB Cream Skin Renew Miracle Skin Perfector

Sometimes magazine samples are worth trying!

I received a sample size of this product in my most recent issue of Cosmopolitan. I rarely if ever actually try these products, but I was curious about this one. I’m so glad I got the opportunity, because this cream is incredible! The product itself looks like a heavy foundation, but wears like a tinted moisturizer…only it’s hand’s down one of, if not the best tinted moisturizer I’ve yet to use! The coverage is phenomenal, and lasts all day long. I have my go-to foundation favorites,  but I will definitely be using this product for the time being. 🙂

(I cannot wait to do a review on this product so you can see!)

4) NYC Liquid LipShine “Fashion Avenue Fuchsia 579”

I recently posted a review of 4 pink lip products, and have been using this particular one religiously. It has the perfect amount of color for everyday use, it has a decent lifespan on the lips, and it smells so, SO yummy which never hurts! 😉 It was really affordable and is definitely a new favorite!

5) Jergens Natural Glow Express Body Moisturizer

I have to give credit to my roommate who actually found this first! We’re always looking for new at home tanning products and this one happens to have been a keeper. Before bed, wash and exfoliate your face, apply this lotion evenly, go to sleep, and wake up tan. It’s as simple as that- it seriously works wonders.

Just make sure you wash your hands after applying**
