April 2013 Non-Beauty Favorites!
I figured this month would be a good one to start a non-beauty favorites type post. Most especially because I've blogged less and been busy with so many other things!
Firstly, these candles. I've seen them around and have wanted them forever but have only just bought them. Richard liked the Santiago Huckleberry which smells fruity but in a soft, sweet, candle type way. I, however, opted for Baltic Amber which smells quite like amber and vanilla; musky but still soft. So good. Their burn time seems pretty high considering we've been burning them every night now for a week and there is still a ton left. So happy with them. Maybe one day I'll graduate to Diptyque.
Homemade lavender spray. Something in me is seriously obsessed with lavender at the moment (I blame a mixture of LUSH and my restorative yoga class). I picked up a little spray bottle and some essential lavender oil and made my own spray. I love spritzing this stuff all over the sheets before bed as it's the perfect scent to fall asleep to. So easy to make and the results are just as good (if not better due to lack of crappy ingredients) than sprays you can get at the store.
I feel like it's kind of weird to be talking about my iPad mini here but lets be real. I've been using my iPad way more than my MacBook this past month which is saying something. The Mini is the perfect size for reading and bringing along with you to wherever you're going. Also, GAMES. I've been playing Hello Kitty Kawaii Town which sounds ridiculous (and is) but it's basically like Hay Day/Farmville Helly Kitty style.
PS Richard and I finally released Kaomoji app for iPad, so check that out!
Lastly? YOGA. I have been doing yoga basically religiously for the past three and a half weeks and I am obsessed. Again. I've been doing at least a class a day minus weekends — rotating between Bikram, Vinyasa, Restorative, and Yin. The fact that my anxiety has gone down a ton + feeling like I'm on top of the world in Standing Bow pose = total bliss. Can't stop, won't stop (ever). This is real love, guys.
What are your April non-beauty favorites?
