April 2012 Beauty Favorites7:47 PM
I'm very excited to say that it's time for another monthly favorites video! This past month, the weather has gone from mild to HOT so my favorites have adjusted to the change. I've been less interested in covering every last flaw up and turning more toward my skincare routine to give me a healthier canvas to work with. Because of this, I have a couple new skincare favorites and my new favorite warm-weather essentials to share with you!
Check them out below, as well as the announcement for my giveaway winner!
Mario Badescu Healing Cream
Stila Bronzing Powder in 01
Lash'em lashes in M6
Urban Decay Super Saturated Lip Color in Lovechild
Shu Uemura Art of Hair Cleansing Oil Shampoo
Sam Edelman Gigi Sandals (Also in silver/Womens Gigi in Rose Gold, Saddle Leather, and cute patterns)
Dress is from H&M (similar for $15/similar/similar romper)
Earrings are from Hautelook (my invite)
Nail polish is OPI Breathe Life (my swatches here)
Congrats to lnm145 for winning my 250k subbies giveaway and thank you to everyone who entered!
I was super overwhelmed/delighted by the entries and your feedback really helped and encouraged me so much. I want to especially thank my blog readers since I had quite a few of you enter on the video, then ran out of space so you wrote more in the comments here. I can't tell you what that means to me and I really believe that my blog readers know me better than anyone online, so the meaningful comments here really touched my heart.
I'm going to have to apologize about not highlighting some of the products in the video this month for the blog, but there have been some personal things clouding my mind lately. I recorded the video a few days ago so truthfully, my heart is in a different place. My husband's grandfather, whom we are very close to, is in the final stage of battling cancer and we visited him in the hospital today. I don't mean to end on a terribly sad note since I don't usually like to send my personal burdens out on other people, but I know several of you have gone through the same thing so any prayers would be appreciated.
I'm sending my love and prayers out to those of you who have battled cancer, know someone who is battling cancer, or have lost someone to cancer. Life is too short, so remind your loved ones how much you love them.
