Grace’s Favorites: April

I have to say – I’m starting to really look forward to these monthly round-ups of goodness… I have so much fun putting them together!  This month, Spring is truly in the air.  Despite chilly weather over the past few weeks, the flowers are in bloom, the days are longer, and the city is abuzz – everyone is out and about!  My style seems to be getting more and more casual.  All I can think about is slinking around in worn cut-offs, baseball t’s, and my Sperry’s or flip flops.  This tee from J.Crew is heavenly, and ranks at the top of my list.  There are several beauty products that made the cut this month.  (Two of them being in the “green” category, which I love.)  And a perfume, to boot (this is rare – after spending years in the beauty biz, I never buy fragrance!)  I’ll cut the rambling… here they are… my favorite things from this month!


For more on why I love these products, keep reading.

J.Crew Baseball T Shirts – I LOVE these.  I picked up both the blue + red, and just adore them.  Everything about them is perfect – the cut, the colors, and the fact that they are 100% linen and super cozy-slouchy.

ARROJO Dry Shampoo – This is my new favorite dry shampoo. And I’ve tried them all.  Sops up oil, no white residue, smells great, and doesn’t leave hair feeling all crusty the way that some dry shampoos can. The sleek, minimalist packaging also makes me happy.

Truth Art Beauty Nourish – I am soo obsessed with this company.  I love that you can design your own skincare products –  built around your individual needs.  I chose an Argan oil base – every time I use it, I feel as though I’m truly feeding my skin with something good.

NARS blush in Gaiety – This looked a little scary – until I put it on.  It’s the perfect natural, rosy blush – love that it looks nearly neon until you put it on.

Pamela Love Mountain Cuff – I mean, how dreamy is this cuff!?  I love it.

Tarte LipSurgence Pencils – These were another Birchbox discovery – since then, I’ve purchased two more!  They’re insanely moisturizing and super pigmented.  They also have an addictive minty fragrance.  To boot, they’re all natural.  Must collect all of them.

Leila Lou Perfume Oil – I can’t say enough good things about this fragrance.  So clean, fresh, and all out delicious.

Any amazing discoveries that you care to share?
