Top 5 Purchases I Made in April

Hey, everyone! Another month, another favorites post! I’m gonna be real, my April faves are some of the best yet. I’m using nearly all of these items regularly. They’re just THAT good! Without further ado, here are my top 5 items for the month of April:

1. Leopard coat

I haven’t owned a leopard coat since the 3rd/4th grade, so it was about time I laid my hands on one again. I found the perfect one thanks to Poshmark (it’s originally from Forever 21). It’s AMAZING quality considering a) it’s preowned and b) it’s from a budget retailer. It has snap buttons and enormous pockets. I’m definitely obsessed. I found a similar one for you on Shein.

2. White sunglasses

Yes, I look like a bug, but idc! These white sunglasses are just big and wacky enough to be fashionable. I got mine for $5 at a booth on Canal Street, but you can easily score a similar pair on Amazon.

3. Star Earrings

I’m trying to get back into the earring game slowly but surely. I have my ears pierced but I don’t usually wear earrings in my first holes. My second holes just have the same old boring pair of studs in each day since I don’t take them out. I saw these star earrings at my local H&M and I thought they were the perfect balance of statement and minimal. Be sure to look out for these in upcoming blog posts!

4. Thank You Farmer Eye Cream

If this cream looks familiar, it’s because you probably saw it in my Riley Rose haul post and video! I’ve been using it religiously ever since I picked it up. It brightens up my undereye skin and makes my concealer glide on even more smoothly. Gotta love K-beauty, am I right???

5. Silicone Sponge

When I saw the silicone sponge taking over the beauty world, I became super curious! I was never attached to my beauty blender- it never worked that great for me and the amount of product it absorbed was absurd. The silicone sponge absorbs basically NONE of the product- it all gets transferred from the sponge back to your face! Groundbreaking. See for yourself; I do a demonstration and use it to rub in my concealer in the YouTube video below!

    I hopped on the silicone sponge bandwagon a couple of Summers ago when they first went viral but I have yet to actually use the one I bought haha! Maybe I need to consider breaking it out! xo Rach
