April Favorites

I know April isn't quite over yet, but there are a few things I've been loving for a while that I thought I'd share!

•Sally Hansen Miracle Gel nail polish - The gel top coat doesn't require a light, and it really helps the nail polish stay on longer!

Body and Skin Care:
Soap and Glory Body Butter - I love the smell of this.

•Cheese - I've been eating a lot of cheese lately, and I don't even care. Fontina is a current favorite.

Weezer (White Album), Weezer - Again, I'm a big Weezer fan, so it's always exciting when a new album drops.
•My Fujifilm Instax Mini 8 - Check out my last post about this little beaut!

What have some of your favorite things been? Let me know!

Fujifilm Instax Mini 8

When I was a kid, I loved to play around with my mom's cameras. It was always so fun looking through the little viewfinder, trying to get the perfect shot, and then going to the store to get a roll of 35mm film developed. Sure, I took some not so great shots - hey, I was just a kid - but I displayed my photos proudly in my photo albums.

Fried Ravioli

I grew up eating (and LOVING) Italian food, so whenever there's cheese and tomato sauce involved, I pretty much automatically love it. So it was time I tried something I've been wanting to try for a while.
