April Favorites

This month my favorites are all over the place, there's a little of everything. It's been a crazy month, with upcoming final preparations for classes, repainting my room, more closet organization, and a new job. Many of my favorites have helped me cope with the stress that comes with all of that.


  1. My skincare favorite this month is Aztec Secret. Aztec Secret is a natural clay that you mix with water or apple cider vinegar to create a purifying face mask. I have been using this with Bragg Organic Apple Cider Vinegar, and have had great results. I leave the mask on for 20 minutes tops and my skin feels smoother and insanely clean afterwards! I'm such a mask junkie, but I really think this is something that is going to stay in my routine forever. 
  2. I have also been loving Ben and Jerry's Dairy Free Ice Creams this month. As you may have read in my skincare routine post, I went dairy free a few months ago. I have finally been able to have ice cream, which I am so happy about with the beautiful weather we have had in New York. These ice creams are made with almond milk and taste like a dream, one of my favorites is Chunky Monkey. If you're curious, you can check out their other flavors here
  3. Another food favorite has been BarkThins, which is a 'snacking chocolate'. I don't think I really have to explain why I love chocolate, however I love that barkthins has so many flavors and I don't even feel guilty about eating it! 
  4. Last but not least, I have really been loving my Himalayan Salt Lamp (pictured in my Instagram with Aztec Secret), It could just be because when my room was repainted I removed all my furniture and dusted everything I possibly could in the room, but these salt lamps are said to purify the air in your home. My room feels so clean and I have seen much less dust buildup. I do clean every week, if I wasn't a student I feel like it would be more often, but my room feels cleaner than ever!
