My Life in April 2019

Hello Everyone!

Another month is ending, so it's time for a monthly lifestyle post! April was a alright month. I spent a lot of April being busy with different things.

I started April off by visiting Verizon. I held onto my Galaxy Note 5 for the longest time. It was time to upgrade since my old phone was starting to give me so many problems.

Looking around 

 I received good deals and a free tablet. I love my new Galaxy Note 9!

Treat yourself 

Back in my December 2018 Lifestyle Post, I mentioned the post office was my least favorite place. The DMV comes is strong second lol.

I'm just glad I was at the DMV about 30 minutes.

I've received so much positive feedback for my Lake Murray pictures. This is becoming one of my favorite places.

Courage Believe Inspire

Incase you didn't know I'm a huge Marvel fan! I can't wait to see Avengers Endgame! How cool is it that Ulta has an Avengers Makeup Based Collection!

So glad I got the last Avengers Makeup Bag! 

April has been full of PR Samples 🙂 Goose Creek Candle. These are my current favorite Spring Candles from the brand.

Thanks Chique Tools for these pretty brushes. You can find this brush kit at 5 Below.

Thanks Clinique! This is my favorite high end skincare brand.

How sweet of NARS to send over these products! Thank you! I have a few sample of NARS that I love so I can't wait to try these new goodies! Thank you!   

Random fresh face selfie

I had to stop by the UPS store to drop off and pick up a package. 

Happy Easter

Thanks mama for the Easter Goodies! :) (now I have two packs of the Clinique Towelettes!)

Recent Sunday Night Skincare Routine 

Have you tried the Dove Foam Mousse? I saw these at CVS over the weekend. You can use this mousse as a body wash and/or shaving cream. All of them smell great, but my favorite scent is the Rose Oil.

Grabbing a quick lunch to go with my mom

You guessed it another Lake Murray picture. This one has to be my favorite. I snapped this photo as the sun was setting.

Wishing everyone a wonderful May!

How cool that you got a free tablet with your new phone. 30 minutes at the DMV is not bad at all. Have an amazing month of May Pilar!

I have not used Dove's foaming soap, I am not a big fan of foaming soap. Though I have used their bar soaps. OMG my phone is driving me k-razy. I have a Hauwei phone and it may have spywear on it.

But is so slow now and does not display photos in my gallery. I really need a new phone but keep putting if off.

I hate the DMV in the NY-Tristate area. Though going to the DMV in Seattle was a breeze. What a difference

The sunset over Lake Murray is beautiful, Pilar. You really captured it well. I can see why this is becoming one of your favorite places to visit. It looks so peaceful, and just what we need when we have difficult or stressful days. I'm with you on the DMV, always lots of people, but I don't mind the UPS store. I love that aqua pedestal dish, and have a darker blue one like it that my sister gave me. I love to see all your candles and goodies around your home too.

Wishing you wonderful May days, Pilar, and thank you for letting me know about that sunset - the photo truly is lovely.

Thanks Rowena! Wishing you a great May!

Foam soap isn't my favorite either, but I am interested in these new mousse products! They smell so nice lol! Oh no! I hope your phone doesn't have spyware! My old phone wouldn't hold a charge, it would cut off and numerous other problems. It was time for an upgrade!

Pilar said...

Thanks Sheri, and you're welcome! I really love capturing these Lake Murray photos. Every lake photo I take is different and meaningful. Lake Murray is such a peaceful place for me. You're right the lake is a stress reliever for me. I'm really happy I wasn't at the DMV that long! It was getting crowded, but things were moving along. Wishing you a wonderful May!

Thanks Kinga!
