April Loves Giveaway 2022

Throw Blanket • White Jeans • Sunscreen • Sandals •  Handheld Vacuum • T3 Curling Iron

Throw Blanket

With the change of seasons, I’ve been wanting to have a lighter weight throw blanket to layer in our living room or cuddle up with.  I ordered this cotton, muslin throw on Amazon and was so impressed when it arrived.

The quality is great and it’s that perfectly textured muslin cotton material that isn’t too heavy for the warmer months of Spring and Summer.

You can dress it up on the end of your bed or sofa, fold it neatly over the arm of a chair, or fluff into a basket for another layer of texture and visual interest.

The little tassels at the ends are cute too!  I got the light tan color and think it goes perfectly with my neutral living room decor.

White Jeans

These white jeans are so good!  They’re designer denim AG brand that I’ve had good luck with in the past with white- theirs are always very opaque, not at all sheer, which I really like.

This style is a high waist slim straight leg, so slightly wider from the knee down than your traditional skinny jean.  On the model, they were hitting a few inches above the ankle, but on me (5’1), they sit right at the ankle.

I also really liked that they have the structure of a true jean (with a bit of stretch), but they aren’t a jegging, which tends to be pretty unflattering in white.

Overall, these jeans get 5 stars!

Y’all saw in my 4-Minute Skincare Routine that I’m using the Colleen Rothschild SPF 4o and really like how it’s protecting my skin.  I took it to Mexico and although I was in the sun almost all day, my face never got sunburned.

The Triple Defense Sunscreen is a broad spectrum SPF 40 that protects against UVA/UVB rays, pollution and blue light.  It also has antioxidants to help fight future signs of aging and skin damage.

It’s 100% Mineral Sunscreen (reef safe), Non-Comedogenic (won’t clog pores) and also controls oil. I like the little pump that’s easy to use and the formula doesn’t break out my skin like some sunscreens do.

It’s sandal season friend!  One brand I know I can rely on for quality, comfort and cuteness is Sam Edelman.  I’ve had this flat style in the past and they wear really comfortably on your feet- even if you have bunions like I do.

They have tons of color to choose from and with or without grommets.

With Spring cleaning on my brain, I have to give special props to this dynamo of a handheld vacuum.  It’s lightweight and easy to use, and equally as important, it’s incredibly powerful.

It gets in tight spots and cleans up crumbs, inside drawers and sucks up spider webs in a second! You can flip up the brush attachment if you want to use that feature, which is perfect for furniture.

I also love how long it holds a charge.  It’s never run out on me and it’s also nice and compact.  I’m keeping mine in my pantry.

T3 Curling Iron

It feels great to have chopped 3 inches off my hair on Friday.  It’s now hitting right at my collarbone with a chin length bang. I used to love having long hair, but I don’t think it’s that flattering on me now.

Shorter hair is easier for me to style and also tends to have more body, especially when I use my dry texturizing spray.

I usually curl my hair and the T3 curling iron is the one I reach for most often.

I like how I can control the heat setting (I usually put it on the lowest) and hold the curl for about 5 seconds.  Lately, I’ve been using the 1-inch barrel.  The curl is tighter at first, but relaxes nicely into a looser, beachy wave.

If you’re interested in a hair curling tutorial, I have one here and here.
