Holy cow! I can't believe April is already over! It flew by which is fine by me because the faster these spring months go by the closer we get to summertime and then fall - my two favorite seasons! I've decided to start monthly favorites posts a la Love For Lacquer and show you all what  my favorite music, food, make-up, clothing, websites, nail polish and jewelry was. Are you ready!? Let's get this show on the road.

Favorite Jewelry: Friendship bracelets!
I'm obsessed with friendship/braided bracelets. I bought these three by Full Tilt at Tilly's. I actually bought six bracelets total because Tilly's does buy one, get one half off on Full Tilt. How amazing is that? Availability: Tilly's / Pricing: $5.99 + buy one, get one half off on all Full Tilt jewelry.

Favorite Beauty Product:
LUSH Lemony Flutter Cuticle Butter
I'm sure you guys are tired of me raving about this but I can't get over how awesome it is. I use this as a cuticle butter and even hand lotion sometimes. What I do is take a pea size amount of it and rub it on my nails and cuticles. Sometimes I'll rub it in and go like a hand lotion and sometimes I'll wash my hands after. It depends. You can also use LUSH Sea Salt with it which is like a spa day for your hands, let me tell you! It's smooth and doesn't leave your hands greasy if you do decide to leave it on. It's perfect and I noticed a difference in my cuticles being softer overnight. You can order LUSH products here. Price: $14.00

Tweezerman Satin Etched Zebra Slant Tweezer
Have I mentioned how in love I am with zebra print? Zebra print, hot pink and glitter and I'm good to go. Now take my vanity for my eyebrows and a zebra print tweezer and we have a winner! Thank you, Tweezerman! These tweezers are slanted for brow shaping with precision. Store / FB / Price: $25.00 

Favorite Drink: Starbucks Mocha Cookie Crumble Frappuccino
One word: YUMMY! This new drink from Starbucks is coffee-based with mocha sauce, milk, vanilla syrup, frappuccino chips and ice. It even has chocolate whipped cream ON TOP. CHOCOLATE. WHIPPED. CREAM. Ahhhh. The drink is under 350 calories for a Tall. That drops more if you request nonfat milk and/or no whipped cream. So basically, it's got the calories of a meal. IDGAF!

Favorite Nail Polish(es): 
OPI Just Spotted The Lizard
How gorgeous is this!? It's from OPI's new The Amazing Spiderman collection and I'm in love! It's a golden green chrome with teal and pure green duochrome. I actually really like this because I'm not a fan of green polishes and this is converting me. Availability: May 1st / Price: $8.50 

Whimsical Ideas by Pam Nancy's Birthday
I love this. If this doesn't scream girly and fun, I really don't know what other polish would.. Nancy's Birthday is a light pink base (I put it over Essie's French Affair) with different size multi-colored glitters. Basically, it's funfetti frosting for your nails! You can order Whimsical Ideas by Pam here. She's is the sweetest thing ever, by the way. Price: $10.00 

Sinful Colors Summer Peach, Pink Fusion, Pink!, Neon Melon and Dream On
I am obsessed with neons! The picture doesn't do any justice to how bright these babies really are. I think I like neons so much because they always make your hands look tan and I'm as white as paper. LMAO. Tricks of the trade, people! Price: $1.99

Favorite Songs:
Somebody That I Used To Know - Goyte
Call Me Maybe - Carly Rae Jepsen
Wild Ones (ft. Sia) - Flo Rida
Dance Again (ft. Pitbull) - J.Lo
Drunk On You - Luke Bryan

Favorite Websites: 
Forever21 - If you're looking for some cute stuff for cheap prices, this is definitely the place to shop! Always trendy and super affordable. I personally love their shirts and necklaces.
Jenna Marble's Blog - If you don't know who this is, LOOK UP HER VIDEOS NOW! This girl is hilarious. Warning: She has the mouth of a sailor!

Favorite Bloggers:
BeautyGnome - FB / BLOG - One of the funniest girls I've ever had the pleasure of reading her comments. Her blog is amazing and she's a fellow CT girl so we have to stick together and show support! ;)

College Polished - FB / BLOG - One of the sweetest girls EVER. I feel like we have a weird bond because we both started out at the same time. Her swatches are amazing. Definitely check out her blog!

Love For Lacquer - FB / BLOG - If you aren't reading this because Jess has sent you over here from one time or another, holy cow, hi. I can't believe you found me by yourself. Jess is by far one of the sweetest girls I've ever met. We met through a mutual friend (her babysitter!) and it's been a whirlwind since ;) Her blog is amazing with clear swatches and up-to-date collection previews and press releases. If, by the rare chance, you weren't sent here by her, you need to check her out!

So that's it for my first ever month's favorites. What do you think? What are your favorites for April?! Bring on May!
