6 Friday Faves

I did this in February and enjoyed it. I missed March, but I wanted to bring this feature back this month just to showcase a few favorites that aren't included in my beauty and skincare favorites at the end of the month. And also, if you want to take the opportunity, you can throw some recommendations my way! What song are you enjoying? What book did you just read and love? Maybe it is something not yet on my radar and I'm missing out!

Aveeno MAXGLOW Sleep Mask, Peel Off Mask, and Infusion Drops

I was sent these Aveeno products to test and review. Seeing as I already love Aveeno products, I was super down to get into these products from their new MaxGlow line. I love the Positively Radiant products...I used to love the exfoliating pads under the same line, but I think they have been discontinued because I never see them anymore. Never fails!

Within the new MaxGlow line, I have the No-Mess Sleep Mask, Peel Off Mask, and the Infusion Drops. See below for what I think of each product, along with close-ups of the applicators.

Maybelline SuperStay Matte Ink in Dreamer

When these went on sale again, I finally grabbed another shade. I've talked about Loyalist a lot and rave about it and this formula to anyone who will listen. I love Loyalist so much and it's a great nude, but I was looking forward to trying a shade in the pink family with warmer weather coming. A girl needs options!

This post won't be so much about the formula, as really just sharing the shade and swatches. To read my thoughts on the formula, see my post where I reviewed and swatched Loyalist. In regards to the formula, I have read about people finding it pills on their lips. I've only tried these two lighter shades and haven't experienced that problem (wondering if it's more to do with the darker shades?), but I've heard sticking to one layer helps.

Blog of the Month for April 2019

In March, Janine from Janine Allison was my featured blogger. You can read that post and see other past featured blogs under the "blog of the month" label! Being my blog of the month gets you a designated blog post, a sidebar button, and a mention on my Twitter account. The sidebar button stays up all month long. I don't believe in necessarily making bloggers pay for advertising and I'd much rather show you blogs that I really enjoy reading. And I hope you end up enjoying them too!

This month, I've chosen Miranda from A July Dreamer.She covers a variety of topics with more of a focus on tips with a few reviews tossed in. And by tips, I mean she has a lot that you can apply to your daily life like her post on how to keep your wardrobe smelling fresh. You could get bitten by the travel bug with Miranda's travel posts. Don't say I didn't warn you! I hope you check her blog out and feel free to let her know I sent you!

InstaMonth for March 2019

I always come into April feeling refreshed and ready to go. I'm 99% sure that has to do with our vacation we always take at the end of March to coincide with our wedding anniversary. The other percent is probably from the spring cleaning and organizing. It just makes me so happy!

Because of those things and taking a bit of a blogging break for almost two weeks, I've felt more productive this month already. One big thing I crossed off my list was getting my US passport renewal application done and mailed off (today!). I haven't been home (or to the States at all, actually) since around the end of 2012. It has been a loooong time and that will change this year! I can't even remotely put my level of excitement into words here. I have honestly cried and had the shakes so many times just thinking about visiting home.

Here are some highlights from my Instagram during March!
