April Rewind, Best Sellers & Reader Faves

Hi friends!  Happy Friday!  Did you catch my Day in the Life on Stories yesterday?  It’s kinda what a typical day looks like around here and I hope it gave you a glimpse into the behind the scenes of what I’m doing all day and how I prepare these blog posts!  It’s saved to an Instagram Highlight if you missed it!

I’m looking at a weekend all to myself and I’m not mad about it.  I miss my kiddos really bad when they’re at their dad’s house, but we make the most of it and Facetime throughout the weekend.  I also use the time to rest, recuperate, get things done, etc.

This weekend, I’ll keep working out and sticking to my meal plan and I get to see Brian on Sunday night for a friend’s birthday dinner.  My girlfriend Trisa is also coming into town from Fort Worth, so I’ll get to see her for a bit on Sunday too.  I’m super excited for that!

Today’s post is a look back at the best of April- my top posts, the best sellers and your faves!  Plus, I’m announcing the winner of this month’s Loves Giveaway!

APRIL REWIND · BEST SELLERS · READER FAVES

FASHION FAVES

1234567889

1 • Those seamless undies are always popular (and my personal faves too!)

2 • This sweatshirt gets dressed up with a  cute button detail at the shoulder.

3 • You can’t go wrong with the Madewell v-neck tank.  It’s perfectly casual and comes in a ton of colors.

4 • The grommets on these flat sandals make them extra chic, and they go with everything.

5 • The strapless, smocked bodice maxi that double double duty as a coverup or dress.  Fits TTS and I wore it in Mexico!

6 • These Tory Burch flip flops are stylish and I really like the tiny TB emblem on the strap.

7 • I liked this striped hoodie so much that I got it in two colors! Fits TTS.

88 • I wore this bikini in Mexico and really liked the wider shoulder straps and the petite floral print.

9 • These are my most comfy Summer sandals.  So much cushion and the knot detail isn’t too narrow.

AMAZON FAVES

12345678910

It’s all about Summer goodness on Amazon this month.  Looks like y’all are ready for a loooong overdue vacay!

1 • This crochet blouse is easy breezy and looks great with jean shorts.

2 • The sun hat is always a reader fave and I’m not surprised.  I still wear mine all the time- it’s classic, the shape is flattering, it’s adjustable and priced right!

3 • I took this crochet tank coverup to Mexico!

4 • The Mother of flattering swimsuits with side ruching.  The shoulder straps are removable.

5 •. These colorful stretchy bracelets punch up any outfit!

6 • You’ll be comfy all day in this tank style dress and you can dress it up with a woven belt.  It’s a stretchy t-shirt material that feels so good on.

7 • If you work in an office, you’ll lots of mileage out of these crop pants.  They’re great for warmer months and fit TTS (with pockets).

8 • I wore this tunic coverup in Mexico too and I saw another woman in it! #twinning

9 • If you prefer a longer skirt style coverup, you’ll love this one.  It’s flowy and wraps around your waist with a tie.

10 • You won’t believe that these strappy sandals are just $20!  They have a “Madwell” vibe with adjustable ankle strap and fit TTS.

HOME FAVES

1234567

1 • Y’all know I use this microwave plate cover on repeat and it saves me from having to wipe out my microwave after every use!

2 • These clear, acrylic dividers are perfect for storing your clutches upright and keeping their shape.  Plus, you can easily see what you have!

3 • It’s so useful to have this phone holder to affix your phone to a window, mirror, or glass so you can watch videos, facetime, record Tic Toks?!  It pulls off easily without any residue and without damaging the surface.

4 • We love using this cheese board for big snack platters or parties.  It makes a lovely Mother’s Day gift too!

5 • The softest sheets.  Just trust me. (and very affordable!)

6 •  There’s nothing I can’t stand more than digging and digging through my purse to find something.  This solves that problem and keeps everything nice and organized!

7 • Keep your bras and undies all organized and easy to reach for with these drawer dividers.

How to Get That Bronzed Glow at Home

This post is all about that bronzed summer glow and how you can achieve it at home.  I’ve been playing with a new bronzer that gives you a sun-kissed look on your face and a self tanner that I’m so crazy for.  I truly believe it’s the BEST COLOR I’ve ever gotten from a self tanner and I’m a convert!

Excellence Playa Mujeres Trip Recap

I think y’all are ready to travel again – or just super interested in how things went in Mexico!  I had more than one person ask me if I came home with a ring!

The trip was so fun and I tried to be very thorough in this trip recap.  One thing I forgot to mention was that, although the hotel was all-inclusive, we did tip at the restaurants, bars and the hard working staff.  I was a waitress for many years, so I’m a good tipper!  P.S. Isn’t my honey cute?!?!
