April Favorites

Hello, everyone!

It’s good to be back after a few days away from my blog.  I’ve been typing my fingers to the bone since The Lexicon Devil’s rebranding and my health had caught up with me.  A few days away from Blogger was just what the doctor ordered.  Now that I am fit as a fiddle, I thought I would share some of my April favorites—today is the last day of the month after all.

(1) Time with the Foosa: Because I work more than fifty hours a week and take classes, I don’t get to spend as much quality time with my fur baby was I would like.  Since last week was my school’s Spring Break, I was able to catch up on some quality time with my little lady.  Selfies were taken.  I.  Have.  No.  Regrets. 

(2.) Laura Mercier Oil-Free Tinted Moisturizer (SPF 25): This has been my base product of choice this month.  It’s a light formula, provides a decent amount of coverage for a tinted moisturizer, and managed to sort out my face after my NARS debacle earlier in the month.  If I had to get rid of all of my other base products tomorrow, this would be the one I would immediately repurchase.  They also say the Duchess of Cambridge is a fan too (biting my style, AGAIN Kate?).

(3.) First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream Intensive Therapy: When I the NARS Tinted Moisturizer left me looking like Freddie Kruger’s bastard child, this gentle moisturizer with colloidal oatmeal flour helped calm my inflamed skin and bring me back to normal.  If you have eczema, you can also use this nourishing moisturizer on other parts of your body.

(4.) Mossimo Crewneck Boyfriend Tee: These shirts are fabulous and are perfect for S/S wear; since I live in California, that’s eleven months out of the year.  You can wear them by themselves or under a button up or light sweater and style them up or down depending on what you are up to.  To date, I have the shirt in seven different colors and have worn them to bed, out and about, and to work under a chambray button-up.

(5.) Iggy Azalea: If Rebel Wilson, Missy Elliott, and RuPaul were genetically recombined into a white girl rapper you’d have Iggy Azalea.  Check out the video to her new single, “Fancy,” which is a riff on Clueless and also have a listen to “Murda Biznezz,” it’s a TUNE.

(6.) The Foosa got a raincoat!

(7.)  The Fault in Our Stars by John Green: I placed this book on my April TBR and managed to get through it this month.  It was incredible.  I will have a review on it as part of my April TBR wrap up.  Watch this place!

(8.) Rainbow Rowell: I finished both of Rainbow Rowell’s YA novels—Fangirl and Eleanor & Park—this month and ADORED them.  Again, they were both on my April TBR so I will have a review on them in my April TBR wrap up post which should be up this weekend. 

(9.) The Foosa got a sun hat!

(10.) The Lexicon Devil Blog onTumblr: It was going to happen eventually: I made a Tumblr.  I apologize in advance for all of the Morrissey Memes.  If you don’t follow me on Tumblr, you really should.

What’s been ticking your fancy this month?  Let me know in the comments.
