April Favorites – Add it to Your List

Linking up with Lauren and Bre today with some of my April favorites I think you should add to your list!

Van’s Foods The Perfect 10 Crackers

These crackers are so good!!! I love to pair them with a little Laughing Cow wedge for the perfect afternoon snack. And wine. They go great with wine. Doesn’t everything? They have whole grains and seeds in them so I tell myself they are healthy. Ish.

Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick

I have tried a million many lipsticks and glosses over the years. Rarely is there one that really stands out as absolutely amazing. This stuff you guys? This is my holy grail!!! My mom got the Lovesick color for me off my Christmas list, and it is my absolute all time favorite lip product. This stuff has some amazing staying power. Even though it is matte, it doesn’t look or feel dry on my very dry lips.I can’t say enough good things about this stuff. If you are looking for a new lipstick, give this a try! I want to pick up this duo from Sephora!

I am wearing lovesick in this picture…

Murad Time Release Acne Cleanser

I have been using this cleanser for about a month now and I love it!!! It’s a real bitch when you have to worry about breakouts and wrinkles, am I right??? This cleanser covers both problems!!! The thing with most acne cleansers is they tend to dry my skin out and make the problem worse. Not this stuff!!! It is more of a cream cleanser than a gel. It goes on smooth, has a cooling effect and leaves my skin super soft and looking awesome!!! Chris is even using this stuff too.

Big Little Lies

I know I am late to watching the show, but we were trying to catch up on our other stuff first. I read the book two years ago and really loved it and I have to say that this show has been done very well!!! We have two episodes left and I am trying to savor them. If you were on the fence, give it a try. Chris is watching it with me and enjoying it as well. I will say that some of the twists in the book are easier to figure out on the show.

Grocery IQ

I used to write all my shopping lists on paper, all the way up until about a year ago. I decided to finally try a few apps to see if it made it easier and it does!!! I got tired of leaving my list at home. Or sometimes we were out and decided to go ahead and pick up a few things. Grocery IQ makes everything so easy! It is free to download and you can share your lists with multiple people. Chris has it on his phone and it was a HUGE help the first few weeks after we had Zoe when he was going to the store himself. I also shared a shopping list with one of my coworkers last year who did Whole 30 with me so he could see everything he needed to pick up from the meal plans that I set up for us. You can check off things as you find them in the store and have several lists going at once.

What are some things you are loving right now?

    I keep meaning to watch Big Little Lies but I get distracted every time. I need to move it to the top of the list!

  • Reply SMD @ Life According to Steph April 25, 2017 at 9:46 am

    Love that lip color.

  • Reply Laura April 25, 2017 at 10:20 am

    YES!! You finally shared your lip stuff! I’m going to buy this right now. I love that color – it looks aaaahhhhhmazing on you. Also, that grocery app sounds genius! And I’m probably going to get those cracker/chip things — because I have giant snack drawer at work that is teetering on empty.

  • Reply Andrea @ Living On Cloud Nine April 25, 2017 at 10:26 am

    I am all about favorites posts! You will love the last two episodes of big little lies, and I hear it will be back for a second season, can’t wait. I like the Kat Von D lipstick’s too and man what a beautiful shade you’re wearing. Happy Tuesday lovely lady!

    that colour looks great on you! i enjoyed BLL but did not like the book.

  • Reply Sierra April 25, 2017 at 10:39 am

    What a great lip color. I think I need to try out that Murad cleanser because the struggle is real over here. Beautifully Candid

  • Reply Lindsay Latimer April 25, 2017 at 10:39 am

    Thank you for sharing Grocery IQ! I make multiple lists and never combine them so I always forget something at the store. This will help so much! Yes, I’m convinced everything goes with wine. And I need to check out that cleanser! Being an adult is fun.

    I’m hoping Big Little Lies comes on something I can see it on – I dont have HBO.

  • Reply Audrey April 25, 2017 at 11:30 am

    I want to start watching BLL, too. We don’t have HBO… I’m wondering if it is/is going to be on hulu or Netflix or Amazon Prime any time soon…
    I love a good matte lipstick. You look great in that photo!

  • Reply Amy @ The Crazy Wise Woman April 25, 2017 at 12:28 pm

    Love that lip color on you!

  • Reply Lauren April 25, 2017 at 3:15 pm

    That is such a good lip color! And I normally just make my grocery list in my notes app, but a dedicated app that I can add to throughout the week and let Andrew see would be great… I just need to delete some cat pics or get a new phone first! Thanks for linking up!

  • Reply Dani April 25, 2017 at 3:40 pm

    The berry shade looked a little intense in the bottle, but looks great on you! I have an issue with mattes because of the drying factor, and I hate that feeling! I’ll have to try out the mini version 🙂 LOVED Big Little Lies, especially since I kinda forgot the ending! I thought the casting was perfect. So excited that they’re doing another season!

  • Reply StephTheBookworm April 25, 2017 at 3:41 pm

    I use a similar app for shopping called Out of Milk. I love it and add to it all through the week!

  • Reply Jenna April 25, 2017 at 9:42 pm

    I use Pepperplate at the moment for shopping. It’s actually a recipe app & website, and I LOVE it for keeping all of my recipes in one place and clutter free. I can even add recipes from websites with the click of a button. It has a nice little meal planner. And… It has a shopping list. Click on the recipe you’re using, and just add that to the shopping list. Or add items manually. It’s made my life so much easier.

  • Reply Kristin April 25, 2017 at 10:39 pm

    Looking up the IQ app!

  • Reply Bre April 25, 2017 at 11:12 pm

    Loved Big Little Lies. the soundtrack is fantastic. I heard they were talking about making a second season even though I was very satisfied with the ending but I would totally take more episodes.

  • Reply Elle sees April 26, 2017 at 7:17 am

    Huge fan of the Kat Von D liquid lipsticks. “Mother” is one of my fave shades and “Lovesick” too! I have the book BLL and keep meaning to read it before watching the show!

  • Reply Cara April 26, 2017 at 2:11 pm

    You look so pretty with that lipstick shade! I’ll definitely have to keep those liquid lipsticks in mind next time i’m in need of some! Also, I need to watch BLL.

  • Reply Rach @ This Italian Family April 26, 2017 at 4:06 pm

    I have the Wunderlist app that is really similar to the GroceryIQ one and I love it! It’s so helpful having your grocery list with you everywhere you go!

  • Reply Ashley @ The Wandering Weekenders April 27, 2017 at 1:07 pm

    I’m so glad that y’all are loving BLL! They really did such a good job with the show, and the casting couldn’t have been more perfect! I got some of Kat Von D’s lipstick too, and you’re so totally right about how amazing it is! I was actually thinking of wearing mine this weekend to my cousin’s couples shower!

  • Reply Carly April 28, 2017 at 10:11 am

    We are the worst about forgetting to grab our grocery list, though I’m also bad at somehow taking my list and getting home and realizing I somehow missed something (so annoying!), but the groceryIQ app sounds awesome! I was soo close to trying that liquid lipstick and totally wish I would have! The lovesick color is so pretty and it sounds like such an amazing formula. So glad you guys are loving BLL- it was so good.
