Big Dealios of April

Body wash- The Body Shop shower gels in honey / olive / coconut 
The power of 3 to clean, soften & smell oh so good! 

The Honeymania shower gel has that perfect scent for quick pick-me-ups in the mornings. The Olive shower gel has you feeling cleansed after each use with a sophisticated scent. Lastly, for that baby soft smooth skin, you can completely rely on the Coconut shower cream. 

Hand cream- L'Occitane Shea Butter hand cream
I. cannot. live. without. hand. cream/lotion period
It doesn't matter which season... having a very dependable hand cream next to my bedside is a must. Thankfully I was given this hand cream as one of the gifts from a close friend of mine on Christmas :) This was actually my 2nd tube of the same scent. Funny enough for the 1st tube I also got it as a Christmas gift but it was totally neglected because the scent made me feel nauseous. 

Then the 2nd time around, I loved that it smelled like baby powder & how it was so moisturizing + nourishing for my hands! Guess I became more open-minded to the smell or maybe because of the fact that I strictly used it before bed. L'Occitane states that this hand cream is sold every 3 seconds & I think there's no doubt about that. The only thing that I'm iffy about is the price for a small tube. It's $12 for 1 oz which is more on the pricey side for a drugstore customer like me. 

Candle- Bath & Body Works Eucalyptus Mint 
The one scent that both my boyfriend & I agreed on keeping this as our "signature scent" for the home. It's the unisex scent that is extremely refreshing to our nostrils while surrounding the home with a clean aroma within seconds after lighting up the 3 wicks. 

Every single night

Sometimes when I read the descriptions on the bottom for previous candles, I didn't agree & wondered what the person who came up with these descriptions is talking about. But for this candle, it's really like you are taking a walk in the brisk cool mountain air. 

Facial wash- Simple Kind to Skin Moisturizing Facial Wash
As much as I love using my good ol' facial cleansers from Neutrogena and Clean & Clear, they can be harsh on my skin if I were to constantly use them. So I like to take a break & turn to companies with products that are gentle & not oily. 

This facial wash from Simple is light but with just enough lathering. There's never that tugging or tight feeling from your skin afterwards. Plus it has an invigorating lemony scent for any groggy days.

Music- 2NE1 Crush album
First of all, I love all songs from 2NE1! There hasn't been a song that was disappointing or sounding repetitive so I'm always impressed by their talents.

In Kpop (Korean popular music), 2NE1 is my only jam! It's the perfect group that has me tuning in with my culture + gets me pumping. Whether I was cleaning or getting ready to go out, I was listening to this album all throughout this month~

John Legend Love In The Future album
The album for all deeply in love couples & for romanticizing

Gosh, his voice!!

Book- Our Q&A a Day: 3-Year Journal for 2 People
We bought this in February & we still enjoy answering the questions and looking back on the ones we answered. It's a wonderful addition to add onto those emotions when you read back on old, treasured letters & diaries or when you look back on past pictures. It brings out laughs & even surprises when you discover how much you have changed. This Q&A book is even more special because there are answers from not only yourself but from your other half. 
We got into the habit of answering a question before falling asleep. It's the end of the day smile & thoughtfulness.  

April 29: What would make you happier?

April 30: "Cuddling with you is like ________________"



The best part besides that it is between you & him is that this book can be answered for 3 years. Of course there are questions in regards to love & your relationship but there are also questions for you. Like thoughts on your past & present as well as plans for the future. And there are fun questions like the one above! We promised not to peek at each other's answers ;] 








Time to flip our calendars~~

    1. Ooh I was wondering abt the hand creams from Crabtree & Evelyn as well b/c they had the same packaging as L'Occitane & I heard pretty good reviews on Youtube~ I smelled the Red Velvet candle while I was shopping for more candles & it smelled really yummy! Eee happy to hear another 2NE1 fan! I love how talented each of them are but my 1st fav member would have to be CL :)

  6. Shea butter is one of my favorite things. It's how my hands survive. That candle also sounds amazing. My husband is very picky about candles, and that one might do the trick! So with the journal do you answer at the same time or do you take turns? Sounds like such a neat idea!

  13. What a sweet idea to create a journal together with him! I love this sentimental gesture. It is definitely something you can look back on and really treasure the memory together!
    Speaking of handlotion, have you tried Soap and Glory hand food? If not, please do so! I used L'occitane for the longest time as well but wanted to venture out. I tried Eso and I like it ok. But after watching several youyubers recommending the Soap and Glory in finally bought one when a Sephora was doing the 15% last month and Boy!! I'm hooked!!
