31 years ago, 4 days after the Chernobyl disaster, while radios were playing Prince’s Kiss 24/7 and Baby and Johnny were most likely getting ready to have the time of their lives, mini-me decided to come into this world.
Well, actually, I didn’t really decide, as my mom had to have an emergency c-section one month before the due date.
And, weighing 3.6 kilos (7 lb. 15 oz.), I wasn’t exactly mini.
But yeah, everything went great, and after a couple exchange transfusions I was as good as new! 😉
I don’t really like saying too many cliché things, so I usually refrain from commenting on how incredibly fast time goes by, but on my birthday I feel like I’m entitled to that, right?
Oh man, it feels like yesterday I was writing my “April 2016: Current Crushes and It’s My 30th Birthday” post!
I think the reason time seems to go by faster when you’re an adult is that you value time more and have a true understanding of what time really is – that is, the most precious thing you have in life.
The second most precious thing I have in life are my beauty products (LOL!), so let’s have a look at my April favorites, shall we?
Like you probably can imagine, my most favorite favorites are Chanel summer releases. I like all the products I’ve tried, but if I have to pick just one… Well, I can’t. I have to pick at least two: the mesmerizingly beautiful Les Beiges Healthy Glow Luminous Colour in shade Medium and the mysteriously intriguing Le Vernis Longwear Nail Colour in 558 Sargasso.
In order to be able to try all the new summer makeup, this month I’ve been using the Clarins Liquid Bronze Self Tanning Lotion tons. It turns me from zombie to beach babe in an instant… Well, 2-3 days more like! It’s a lovely gradual tanner for the face that I especially recommend to those who have fair to light skin tones.
Like I’ve mentioned a few times before, my eye area reacts to the wrong creams with some pretty annoying dry patches, so I’m always wary of trying a new one. After using the First Aid Beauty Eye Duty Triple Remedy AM Gel Cream for over a month I’m happy to report that I didn’t get any allergic reactions. It’s fragrance-free, nicely hydrating and works great under makeup. If you’re looking for a good eye cream that doesn’t break the bank, definitely give this one a go.
I’m on my second tube of Pixi Glow Mud Mask (which is part of my anti-blemish arsenal) and I’ve realized that, even though it’s my favorite clay mask, I’ve never given it the monthly favorite treatment. I love that it leaves the skin deeply cleansed without drying it out one bit. Plus, it’s really easy to remove and comes in a practical squeezy tube. And it’s reasonably priced, so it basically has everything I want in a face mask!
What have you been loving this month?
