Even though the month of April is my birth month, I’m not too sad to be saying goodbye because, that means S U M M E R! I may not be ready to say goodbye to my junior year of college, but I am ready to say arrivederci to exams and welcome my new roommate! I had such a great month and turned the big 21! Being my birth month, I got lots of new clothes, and a present of a Birchbox subscription. I can’t wait to try out these new products, style the clothes that I got and share them with you. For now, lets get into my April favorites!
Whitney Eve Top I totally flipped out when I saw that Whitney Eve was sold at Nordstrom! After wanting something from her brand since it came out I finally got my first top! It is adorable and I can’t wait to wear it! Unfortunately I didn’t see the shorts to pair with it which would have been ideal, but I think the top gives you a lot to work with.
Diamond Necklace- I finally found the perfect dainty necklace thanks to Banana Republic! I got it in NYC and love pairing it with the necklace my boyfriend got me from Kate Spade that says “Taken”. (So cute, I know.)
Black Maxi Skirt- Pretty much a staple to have, but I love styling it. I always tend to pair more of my boho or corp top items with my black maxi, but it is such a carefree and cute look.
B & W Romper- I love rompers, but personally I don’t think that they look too flattering on me. During a sale at Dress Up Boutique, I purchased a black and white romper with a cut out in the center. I was saving it for the perfect occasion and obviously, that happened to be in NYC! Though I had to get it altered, I love how different and trendy chic it is. And when have I ever turned down stripes? *heart eyes*
Cut-out Black Top- It may be a pain to get on…but I love the detailing of this top! Its great when you want to look cute, but don’t have time to accessorize. Thanks H&M 🙂
Crop Jacket- This jacket is so adorable. It is perfect to throw over a cute tank for a date night or night out with the girls! I love the mix of materials and the color. Can’t wait to wear it more before it gets too hot in SC!
The beauty blender– So late, but I am loving it! It looks amazing and feels less cakey.
Chloe perfume– FINALLY treated myself to this amazing scent! I just got the roller bottle, but it is perfect to throw in my bag to have on the go.
Anastasia Contour Kit– I’ve been playing around with this for awhile, but I think that it is so great, especially for beginners like myself! It comes with three highlights and three contour shades and I like experimenting and mixing the colors to see what I like best.
Dior Red Lip Gloss– Oh my gosh. Talk about the perfect pop of color! I wore this color out and loved how it looked. It has a red/coral tint and lasted literally all night.
Anastasia Dipbrow Pomade– Honestly, I wasn’t crazy about this product at first but now I won’t leave the house without it. It is perfect if you’re looking for something to fill your brows and darken them just a bit.
Budapest by George Ezra- My idea of a feel good hipster song.
Say You Do by Dierks Bently- Fun fact: I gave him my number when I was like 13.
Don’t It by Billy Currington- If it isn’t on your summer playlist, you’re living life wrong.
Chicken Ceaser Salad- Either I’ve been watching too much of Shani Grimmond’s make up videos (she always talks about it) or it has been too long, but welcome back into my life. Recently, I have been picking up the premade one from the grocery store and it only costs $3!
Sushi- Instead of my constant craving for Mexican food, this month I only wanted sushi. Shout out to my local take out place for always making the best Philadelphia and cucumber rolls.
Coral iPhone Case- Totally copied my Mom and got the same case that she has, but really it is a beautiful color and I am obsessed with it.
Watching vlogs- Maybe it was an easy way to escape from the stress of exam week, but I noticed myself always going towards the vlogs apposed to the fashion related videos this month!
S’mores Frappuccino- I’m obsessed with s’mores in general and I’ve only had a sample, but holy cow that thing is amazing. Has anyone tried it yet??
NYC- The city always has a place in my heart, I had such an incredible time spending my 21st birthday there, with my favorite people. Shopping, drinking, good weather, and good company…I’m a lucky girl.
Having my boyfriend in the states- My Irish man will be heading back home for the summer meaning I have less than two weeks left with him! Back to a summer of Skyping and counting ahead five hours!
That wraps up my favorites for the month! Like I said I have so many new products and new favorite clothes, I couldn’t put them all in or you would all fall asleep at your chair. But stay tuned, especially if you’re on the hunt for a new favorite product! Xo, Catie Beth Instagram: xocatiebeth Tumblr: xocatiebeth Business Inquires: firstname.lastname@example.org
