10 Things to try this Month: April

1. The New tasty treats at Starbucks, Courtesy of La Boulange

Starbucks  kicked off the month of April with a wide variety of new tasty treats straight from the recipe books of the delicious French pastry shop La Boulange in San Francisco. I of course wasted no time and tried several of them April 1st. I've only sampled a few of the delightful treats offered this month, but I can tell you I've enjoyed every single heavenly bit! So go ahead, use this as an excuse to treat yourself to something scrumptious this month.

2. A pleated skirt, at any length

The pleated skirt is not only in every single store this spring, it's also super flattering on all us gals. Whether your headed to work or a date night with your honey, a sweet little pleated skirt will have you looking effortlessly stylish and chic. Pick you favorite length and give one of these versatile skirts a try.

3.Refresh your beauty bag

Makeup Bag

 Don't stop the spring cleaning with the house, occasionally cleaning out your cosmetic collection is a must. Throw away any product that might be old or out of date and switch those red and burgundy lipsticks that are hiding in your purse with some light pink and nude tones. Now that spring attire has hit our closets and all the winter coats are packed away, it's time to update your makeup bag too. 

4. An at home spa day

Who says you need an appointment to enjoy a relaxing spa day? Pamper your skin right from home by exfoliating, treating, and moisturizing with products you probably already have under your bathroom counter, or make a quick trip to your local Ulta and pick up a face mask. Make sure to have your favorite movie and some relaxing tunes handy and enjoy pampering yourself without breaking the bank.

5. A beautifully Messy Braid

6. Buy yourself a beautiful bouquet

Floral arrangements

Nothing beats the smell of fresh flowers. Now that the buds of the season are in full bloom why not enjoy them right in your own home this month. You don't need an excuse or a special someone to get flowers. Buy a few of your favorite blossoms to enjoy this month.

7. Wear a spring Scarf

8. White Nails

White Nails

White coated nails this season aren't only on trend, but they go with virtually any outfit, and look clean and fresh. My favorite thing to do is wear white on my nails and a bright color on my toes just for fun.

9. Give a little of your time for a good cause

Now that the weather is warmer, there isn't a better time to get out in your community and get involved. Help at a local shelter, volunteer to aid in making your community a little prettier by asisting local charity groups with beach clean-ups or city beautification projects, or just help out at a local neighborhood youth program. Giving a little of yourself to others will not only help those in need, but leave you feeling satisfied and accomplished. 

10. Try a new bronzer


Since summer time and tan lines are right around the corner now is a great time to add a new bronzer to your makeup collection. If you want a great all over bronzer, go for anything you might fancy with a matte finish. If you just want to add a golden glow to your checks, a bronzer with a soft sheen would be perfect for you.
