Happy Friday!

Mother's Day is Sunday! Have y'all purchased your Mother's Day cards and gifts? {Or shipped them if you're not close to your mom?} I sent mine on Tuesday afternoon, so fingers crossed they make it to my mama in time! 

By the way, if you haven't purchased a gift yet, check out my Mother's Day gift guide for some fun options! 

So, this happened on Tuesday night. {Squeal!} I'm pretty obsessed with Kristen Taekman - and her hair - so I was thrilled to pieces when she tweeted me back. Even more reason to love her! ;)

One of my best friends, Laura, works for Stitch Fix. {And I'm jealous!} She sent me a Stitch Fix gift card for my birthday last month, and I got my first Stitch Fix yesterday. First of all, let me tell you how much I love that my stylist is one of my best friends! She knows me and my style, and I love that she texted me while she was putting my box together. ;) Second of all, I love the concept of Stitch Fix. It's awesome for a busy mom; someone who doesn't like shopping; or even someone who's just looking to mix up their wardrobe. Laura picked out things for me that I wouldn't normally pick out for myself, and I totally ended up loving. Do any of y'all use Stitch Fix? {Read more about it here.}

I'm planning to do a blog post about my Stitch Fix soon, but if you'd like a referral link to the site, use mine here

I received a free sample of this Estée Lauder moisturizer from Sephora last month, and I immediately fell in love with it. I have combination skin and need something at night that will really moisturize and sink in deep! {I always wash my face twice at night: once with a washcloth and then again go over it with the Clarisonic.} So, when I tried this, I was really impressed! Not only does it smell amazing, it really does work! I felt like my skin was brighter and a bit clearer after using it, and not to mention so soft and smooth when I woke up in the morning. 

So, I bit the bullet and paid the $60+ for it on Tuesday; all in the name of beauty, right...?!

And since we're on the topic of things I've purchased - much to my husband's chagrin - I found this swimsuit online at Target last weekend and scooped it up for our trip to Jamaica this summer! 

I've pretty much resigned to the fact that I just don't look as good in bikinis as I did pre-baby. So, I wanted something that covered up my belly pooch, but also was cute and something my husband would like, too! 

It's supposed to come in in the next few days, so here's hoping it looks okay on - and fits!

Hope y'all have a lovely Friday and a great weekend!

April + the Five on Friday girls

  1. That is so cool that she twittered back to you. She is so fab on RHONY. Happy Mother's Day!

  2. Stitch Fix is such a genius idea! Do you have the option of returning items if they don't fit your style? Have a wonderful weekend!!

  3. All the stuff in your stitch fix box looks amazing! Can't wait for the review! Again my name is Janel, my comments come up under my husbands acct.

  4. One of my friends using StitchFix every month & loves it! Love that new bathing suit you ordered!


  5. I'm loving that sneak peek of your first Stitch Fix! I've gotten 3 boxes so far and it's seriously so much fun and such a great concept. Very cool that your friend was able to be your stylist!
