Mandii's April Faves!

Oh my lovelies! As I write this I'm overcoming what has to be one of the worst migraines I EVER had in MY LIFE! To those that suffer with these headaches - my sentiments go out to you as well!  Everything gets put on hold and you basically go into shutdown mode. However, thankfully systems are slowly coming together and I wanted to start off May with a beautiful post - so why not share with you my favorite items from April!
Mandii's April Favorites! 



This has to be one of my favorite blushes from Nars. As described on their site it's a warm coral with golden shimmer. It's a perfect compliment to Nars Orgasm for darker skin tone girls.



I love this Dior powder as not as much as a highlighter but as more for subtle golden shimmer, as it leaves my skin all glow - Especially after the nice Florida tan I got after our Disney trip! 



MAC - Pillow Talk

Unfornately, I can't link you to this beautiful nude brown lipstick - it's a MAC Limited Edition item. I love this lipstick because it's the perfect nude for those with pigmented lips - sans the zombie/ undead lips you tend to get with traditional "nude" lipsticks.



Now, I've really been working on my "getting off all my make-up before going to bed" routine, but I have to admit, sometimes I'm so exhausted from the work, school, mommy, blogging day that I just crash. So when I look at my mascara raccoon eyed self, I feel like a bum- but lately, I've been using these bad boys! I admit they smell a bit strong (like Kitchen counter wipes) but they do the job fantastically! No residue on my face, and the make-up is gone super quick! An awesome time-saver! 

Fashion Bonus! 


Okay, so I hardly post on what I'm wearing, but as a huge accessories junkie - I feel like it's only fair to let my fav jewels share in the spotlight as well! 

All the items in the pic are from Aldo, except the big silver cuff - that's from Forever 21 (Love the ethnic print on it!) 

So what are your April Fav's loves? Share your links to your post below! I love to check out new blogs as well!

  3. Niki, the Dior shimmer powder is wonderful! This always one of my faves to reach to when the weather start getting warmer!
    Miss Dre, Torrid is such a pretty color - a bit deceitful too, looks light but all you need is a light hand to apply!
