April Favourites

April has gone by SO quickly.  Here were my favourites!


SkincareInnisfree - Eco Safety Aqua Sun Gel SPF 30 PA++

I bought this on my trip to Korea this winter and have finally opened it to start using it!  IT IS AMAZING (I have to go back to get more).  It is nice and light and does not feel like it is clogging anything (also no strong sunscreen smell).  I have not broken out from this (yet).  To be honest, I have no idea if it is working or not though, but hopefully it does!

Clearly summer is starting to come and I am obsessing about sun protection.  I LOVE THIS.  At first I was super worried that it would show dry patches.  It doesn't! (except once... but then I exfoliated and moisturized.)  It matches your skin tone (I am 'medium') and it makes your skin feel SO SO SO SO SOOOOO good.  You definitely need to try it out.  (stop by a sephora and get a sample if you are scared your skin will break out!)

I will most definitely be bringing this one to Europe :)

Honestly, April was my worst month ever but I was glad to know that God has a plan for me!  I want to live the life He has planned for me and I have come to learn that these are all building blocks for it...sometimes you have to trip and fall to know where to look for the cracks along the sidewalk.


Clothing: Blondo - Diva in Brown

So you may think it's a bit too warm to be wearing boots.  I THINK NOT!  I love these. Firstly it is waterproof (which makes the leather so much easier to maintain) and brown makes it a possibility to wear this in the summer!  


NTS: BUY MORE BLONDOS NEXT WINTER...and check out summer collection.

Manicure Monday (times two)

(left: BFF right: Eiffel Tower)

I recently dropped by Indigo just to do some retail therapy and picked up these two nail polishes.  One of them I got them for $2.10!! (regular price 8.50).

It took about 2 coats total to get the colour in the bottle (one for Eiffel Tower, but 2 for consistency).

The brand is called coco&lulu by Cake.  It is a 3 Free nail polish!  Take a look below:


The Eiffel Tower has a bit more stay power but I strongly recommend a top coat with these.  I put BFF on my toes and it didn't require any as it was nice and glossy and did not chip.

On the other hand, with it on my finger nails...  it was a nice glossy finish but it chipped quite quickly!

Make sure you drop by Chapters/Indigo to check it out!

Thoughtfully yours,
C.C.
