A friend is...

A friend is the one who comes in when the whole world has gone out. 
~Grace Pulpit

A loyal friend laughs at your jokes when they're not so good, and sympathizes with your problems when they're not so bad.  
~Arnold H. Glasgow

Lots of people want to ride with you in the limo, but what you want is someone who will take the bus with you when the limo breaks down.

Newspaper Nails

A while back, Taylor, aka Stylishly Yours, wrote a blog post about these nails.
Since I had painted my nails a light pink, and I was kinda bored of it, I decided to freshen them up with this newspaper print ! (Unfortunately you can’t see it very well on this picture, I took it with Photo Booth.)

And they are suprisingly really easy to do !
If you want to learn how to do them, check out Taylor’s post right here!

Mother's Day Cookies

I finally uploaded the pictures of the cookies that I made my mom for mother's day!

I made butter cookies in the shape of hearts, then added pink and red royal icing.
And I made the "I ♥ U mom" out of meringue... (I made everything from scratch too)

April Favorites

Here are a couple of my favorites beauty products from the month of April! 

Estee Lauder lipstick in Venetian Rose I love the color of this lipstick. It's a little darker and pinker then my lips. And it's perfect for spring!

OPI nail polish in Dulce de Leche I loooove this color! It's the perfect pink! And it matches pretty much anything.

Burberry The Beat EdT It smells really good! It has warm top notes of bergamot, cardamom, pink pepper and mandarin. Read more about it here.

C.O. Bigelow Rose Salve It's basically one of the best lip balms out there! (and it's smells really good of course)

Clinique long last glosswear SPF 15 Guavagold It really is long lasting. I have two of these glosses and they last a long time without getting too sticky or tingly. This one has a gorgeous pink color that I like wearing when I'm wearing a darker eye.

Cover Girl lash blast volume in very black This is my favorite mascara of all times! I love the wand! It doesn't create lumps, goes on really smooth and gives me really full lashes. 

So those were a couple of my April favorites! Anything new that I should try that you really love?
