Monthly Favorites | March & April

Image
Hello everybody! It seems like it has been ages since I did a favorites post. I decided to combine last month with this month, even though it is only half way through April. I have several sections of favorites for you. 

The first category is Makeup!
My current foundation is this Covergirl Clean for Sensitive Skin in Ivory. Now, I actually do not have sensitive skin but I purchased this thinking it might be a good investment for days when I am particularly broken out. It has become my regular foundation now and I have really been liking it :) On top of my foundation, I have been using either my Maybelline Fit Me Concealer or my Smashbox Concealer. I then spray my Urban Decay DeSlick Setting Spray. On top of that, I have my next favorite which is my Nars Pressed Powder in the lightest tone they have, Flesh.

Book Review | Hyperbole and a Half

This book is hilarious. Allie Brosh is so funny!! Her website named Hyperbole and a Half  is the same structure as this book and I am constantly finding myself laughing out loud as I read her quirky autobiographical tales. She describes her writing style as being stand-up comedy in writing form, which I definitely see, and her illustrations are done through Paintbrush, which is so creative!
I would recommend reading this book and if anything, checking out her website to give you a feel for what she is like. 
Have you read any Allie Brosh? She has such a huge Internet following so I am sure some of you know of her! xx

I haven't done a Quote of the Day post since last July... so I thought I would do one right now to bring it back. But instead of choosing just one, I wanted to do both of these because I really like them both! I have definitely been feeling the need for some uplifting words of inspiration. I am feeling pretty homesick and I find myself wishing that the semester would just be over already so I can have summer with my family and friends and then go study abroad! But alas, I have six more weeks so I need to rally and stay positive. 
Wake up every morning with the thought that something wonderful is about to happen.
I want to try and start my day off on a positive note with being happy and not focusing on how tired or cranky I am. Instead, I am going to try to drink a glass of water every morning, along with a healthy breakfast. I usually wake up and dwell on my sleepiness for about a good half hour. Instead, I am going to be grateful for all the possibilities of the day.
We never notice…
