April Books

This month, I got quite a lot of reading done! As the month ended it finally started to get warm and I love reading outside on my porch.

Born a Crime: Stories from a South African childhood by Trevor Noah

Buzzfeed’s Pageturner book club’s theme this month was “memoirs.” I love reading memoirs of comedians I love like Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. This book is relatively new and it was awesome! Although his life wasn’t easy, they way he writes is still funny at times. Definitely recommend!

A Fine Romance by Susan Branch

I’ve already read this book before, but I love how relaxing it is to read and what a beautiful book it is. It just makes me want to go to the English countryside and sit somewhere with a cup of tea. She does beautiful watercolor paintings in the book, as well as writes the words in her own handwriting.

Blowing my Cover:My life as a CIA spy by Lindsay Moran

My mom recommended this book for me to read and I was not disappointed! My friend and I always wanted to be spies growing up and we would try to secretly pass notes to each other in the halls at school. We definitely glorified what it would actually be like to be a spy.

The Sound of a Wild Snail Eating by Elisabeth Tova Bailey

I am obsessed with my pet snails, as you probably already know so reading a whole book about a snail is pretty much my dream come true. This book made me appreciate my snails even more, if that’s possible. If you love small creatures such as snails, you will find this book adorable!

The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend by Katarina Bivaldi

I mostly picked this book on CD out because I liked the color of it. It’s a nice, peaceful read that makes you appreciate living in a small town like the one in the story. Not to give too much away, it’s also a bit of a love story.

I feel like I read very peaceful books this month. What did you read this month?

April Boxycharm Try-On

I LOVE the Boxycharm box this month – I wasn’t disappointed by a single product!

How Boxycharm Works:

Boxycharm is $21 per month. This price includes all the products as well as shipping charges. Inside your box you get 4 or 5 full size products and a paper describing what each product it and how much it would usually cost. All boxes are worth AT LEAST $100. Mine was definitely over that this month.

My Box this Month:

Dr. Brandt Pores No More Vacuum Cleaner Face Mask: This tiny little bottle costs $47 usually! Quite a deal considering I only paid $21 for this whole box. I have yet to try this out, but I’m planning to tonight. It’s just so expensive I feel like I should save it!

Tarte Tarteist PRO Glow Liquid: I’ve never actually owned a liquid highlighter before so I was excited to try this out! While it definitely isn’t a blinding highlight, it does have a nice glow and can be built up or added to with powder highlight. i might even try mixing this in with my foundation.

The BrowGal Eyebrow Gel: This is pretty average eyebrow gel that I used after I had already filled in my brows. I’m looking forward to trying this out on a no-makeup makeup day!

Adesse Hi Definition Liquid Lipstick: I was thinking this would be more of a matte finish, but it definitely isn’t. It’s comparable to ColourPop ultra satin lips, maybe with even more gloss. I love the color I got!

ColourPop My Little Pony Eyeshadow Palette: This is too cute! Not only do I love the packaging of this, but I love the eyeshadow product inside! I’ve only used ColourPop single shadows, but the ones in the palette seemed high quality as well!
