What I'm Loving April 2016

Fun Project On My Snapchat Today (ohtobeamuse)

Have you been on social media lately? Of course you have! So I'm certain that you've been inundated with fringe tassel heels all month. The Steve Madden Sassey heels are the original trend starters and are totally beautiful, but they come in at $130! It's a good price for fab shoes, but I thought I'd share these other fringe tassel heels that I think you'll adore -- and that range in price from $50-$80. Did you see the ones I'm wearing on IG today? They're 40% off!

Last year a bunch of us went to Costa Rica to celebrate the hubs' 30th birthday. While there, we had tres leches cake as his birthday cake. Ever since, I've been super into this delicious sponge cake made up of three milks. The milks are evaporated, condensed and heavy cream. Fortunately, I can easily pick up these yummy treat at the nearby Mexican restaurant, but sadly, no one has been able to replicate the amazing-ness of the tres leches cake in Costa Rica, but I'll just have a slice every day until it no longer matters. Have you tried tres leches before? image c/o

I think we all know that Instagram is my social media platform of choice, but in the month of April, I've really been into Snapchat. Not sure what it is, but I've had a lot of fun snapping some of the mundane things that happen in my life (seriously, so mundane), and a few of the more interesting things that happen on the weekends, too! Maybe it's all the silly filters. Are we following each other on Snap yet? Come find me at: ohtobeamuse

Did you guys ever watch Daredevil on Netflix? Well, the second season just came out and I'm totally loving it. I'm only halfway through as I have to wait for the hubs so we can finish it together, but it's pretty great so far. They have Shane (Jon Bernthal) from The Walking Dead playing The Punisher and they've also introduced Elektra. I didn't see the Ben Affleck version, but I'm pretty sure it sucked. The Netflix version certainly does not. Do you watch Daredevil?

So if you do follow me on Snapchat then you probably saw that I had a #playbeautifully session at the e.l.f. offices in Oakland earlier this week (I also took over their Snapchat). I got a sneak peek of their upcoming beauty items, and I also did some fun photos for them, too! While there, I basically fell in love with the e.l.f. Day to Night Lipstick Duo! It's a dual-ended lipstick with a soft shade for daytime and a bold shade for the night. I Love Pink and The Best Berries are my favorites! Have you tried these or any other e.l.f. products? You get so much bang for your buck!
In spring, all flowers are pretty much the best. We're all loving cherry blossoms, but really, all blooms are bold and beautiful in the months of April and May. My favorites right now are spider mums. Have you heard of them? They are ridiculously stunning, come in a variety of colors -- and the best part -- they last a lifetime! Well, more like two to three weeks, but that's super long for flowers, right? You probably saw these on my Instagram earlier this week. They still look exactly the same! Actually, the probably look even better now.

  6. Those lipsticks are too cute! I love the idea. I'll have to keep an eye out for that. I haven't watched Daredevil yet but I DO want too. I still need to finish the first season of Jessica Jones.

  11. I loved all of your elf goodies too AND I've also been loving your snapchat. I will say that you have the nicest lips and when you're chatting on snapchat, I am literally so jealous. I've got the thinnest, measliest lips and I have serious lip envy while watching you chat to us in snaps. Love! xx adaatude.com
