I'm the type of person that you can depend on me to be very dependable. I rarely switch things up but when I do I often turn to love the item and it's added to my regular "stuff". That's what happened in April.
In April I added two items to my daily life and brought 2 things out of reserved that remind me why I love them so.
With the weather finally starting to get warmer in New York I can finally switch up my jewelry and accessorize like I want to. With that said my jewelry case has found a spot on my bedroom floor.It's that big and heavy that's the only place it can go. With that being said my most beloved necklace has found it's way back out.
My Scorpio Brass Gold Finish necklace
is back into my everyday jewelry wear. Yes, I'm a proud Scorpio woman and I show it. Now that the weather is getting warmer and no more chunky anything is needed.I can finally wear my necklaces. It's pointless when you're bundled up from head to toe. This necklace has been my go to necklace because it goes with everything. The reason why I even created this piece is it's a take on the name plate necklace. Yes I had one, along with the bracelet and ring. So instead of flashing your name. You're flashing your sign. I love it. Yes, you can still find certain signs still in stock on my website
I swear I feel like I live in Dollar Tree sometimes but you can't beat it. Everything is a dollar.
If you follow me on Instagram then you might have seen the pink pen (shown above) in my planner pictures. I obsessed with it. I went into Dollar Tree on the hunt for a new pen because my coveted pens from Target and other Dollar Tree pens were slowly but surely dying out on me. So I more then anything pick these pens up for the color and pattern on them then the ink inside them. Well I surprised when I got home and found them to be gel instead of regular pens. But let me tell you that I LOVE them. I tried using a regular pen one day and threw the sucker to the side and went an grabbed my gel pen out of my planner. I don't think I"ll ever go back to a regular pen again. I've been converted.Gel pens all day, everyday.
You know I have to have some hair products in my monthly favs. So get ready because I"m about to go on a love fest. Eden BodyWorks my hair loves you.
I finally finished the Cream of Nature CoWash. Thank god because the smell of it was turning me off for some reason. I've used the Eden BodyWorks All Natural Cleansing CoWash
before and loved it. I was surprised I had another new bottle to use. I now remember why I love this stuff. #1 it has amazing slip, #2 it doesn't take a lot , #3 it foams up like a shampoo, #4 makes my hair feel clean, #5 smells so good, #6 my hair loves this stuff and responds well to it, #7 makes detangling so easier.
Yes my container is almost done. I can probably get one more wash out of this for me and my mother's hair. Yes, my mother's hair loves this too and her hair type is more kinker than mine. You can see from the picture that the consistency is so lightweight and is water based. Any that that is super light and water based my hair LOVES. Heavy products my hair hates with a passion and will show too. I have to buy another bottle ASAP. You can find this at your local beauty supply, Target, Walmart, and Sally's too.
Now this product my sister got a while back from a CurlBox and was hoarding it. She finally said here try this and I"m so glad she did. Mind you she has relaxed hair. Total side note. But anyway...
Now that the weather is warming up I can now go the easier route with my hair and wash n' gos are it. So I tried out a wash and go using the Eden BodyWorks All Natural Curl Definining Creme
. Gurl... Gurl, I LOVE this product. I did my regular routine and then used this and Cantu gel. My curls came out popping. And my hair was so moisturized. Not just a day or two but the entire week. To the touch when I would fluff up my hair I could legit moisturize my hands afterwards. So I said to myself let me do a twist out and see if my twists come out good too. It didn't let me down.
The picture doesn't lie. My hair was on point and everyone was raving about my hair. It was super moisturized and got bigger and bigger as the days went on.
As you can tell from the photo (shown above) it thick but not thick in a heavy way. It's still lightweight because one of the first ingredients listed is WATER. Good H2O. It has amazing slip. Which my hair loves. It absorbs into my hair and leaves my hair super moisturized. This week I was super lazy and put my hair into a puff right after cowashing and deep conditioning. I worn that for 2 days then twisted the front and put a puff in the back. My hair was so dry from my laziness. I said to myself let me grab this. I put this in my hair as a moisturizer and styled my hair. It didn't let me down. After three days I took that out and remoisturized my hair and did two two-strand twists until wash day tomorrow.So it not only works for wash n' gos, plus twist outs but works as a moisturizer and styler. Along with Curlz Twist n/ Shout this is going to be my go to product for everything. When you find a product that works I stick with it.
I used this product for 5 weeks straight and I have so much to still go. I can probably go another 5 weeks before I need another container. So you get a lot for you money. But on a side note, DO NOT use Eco Styler gel with this. I tested it on the back of my hand and it doesn't mix well. Luckily, I had a bottle of Cantu gel which it works well with. I forgot to add that with my favs so I guess it will be included in May's.
So this concludes my Must Haves for April. Go try Eden BodyWorks
products they're the business. They get my stamp of approval.
What were you loving for April? I would love to hear.

Not everyone is a morning person. Years ago when I was working during the day and going to school at night I was a night owl. A decade plus later, I love going to be at least 11pm. 12 am if I want to live dangerous. I'm a morning person and is normally up at 5:30am or 5:35am every morning even on Sundays when I try to sleep.
Being a morning person has really help me to get more done in my day. By 12 midday I can honestly say majority of the items on the list for the day are completed. Which frees my time up for other things. Here's what I've learned by being a morning person.
1. Wake up early it will motivate you more.
Because you're up earlier you'll want to tackle the things you have to get done. You'll be motivate to get them done.2.Give yourself time to get ready.
I hate being rushed to get ready. So getting up early gives me plenty time to get ready at my own pace plus make breakfast and etc.3. Take a hot shower.
When you get up early you have time to actually enjoy a long shower instead of jumping in bathing and jumping back out. 4. Do your beauty routine.
Being up early enables you have the need time to do your beauty routine without feeling or being rush. Even though I can beat my face in 20 minutes if I really have to.5. Exercise! Get your stretch on and then a workout before you leave.
Some people like to get a early workout in before they start their day. You're body will thank you later in the day.6. Plan our your day.
Being a planner, my day is already planned out. I just take a brief look inside my planner and see what I have to get done for the day.7. Pump that music.
Due to the time I get up I can't pump my music but if you're like my sister she's always pumping her music when she's getting ready. It'll keep you in a good mood while getting ready to start your day.8. Read something that inspires you.
Because I get up so early I normally have time to read a chapter or two of whatever book I'm reading at the moment. It's a great start to the day.9. Start your day doing the most hardest task.
I've noticed if I get the hardest task done first thing in the morning my day moves more smoothly.It's like lifting a weight off my shoulder.10. Brain exercise - crossword or sudoku
Got to keep you mind sharp. No better way then doing crosswords or sudoku early in the morning.11. Eat light at night so you don't wake up feeling full.
I've noticed if I eat a very heavy meal the night before I'll wake up super hunger the next morning which will result in me wanting to eat a super heavy breakfast. Which isn't good.12. Don't press snooze.
I'm really good with not pressing snooze.Because all that does is delay your day.13. Get out of the bedroom don't tempt yourself to get back in bed.
Your bed will tempt you. So once I'm done getting ready I get out of my bedroom.14. Meditate.
If you're into meditating then this would be a good way to start your day.15. Check emails and voicemails so you can plan accordingly.
Out of habit we all check out phone first thing in the morning but instead of scrolling on Facebook or Instagram check your email. If there are any pressing items you can add it to your schedule for the day.16. Catch up on the news so you don't face the day completely clueless about the day events.
With our current world it's good to stay up-to-date on the current world events.17.Drink water.
I'm not a water drinker but I'm trying. I've heard it's good to start your day with at least a cold cup of water.18. Stick to your routine through the week and try not to deviate too far on the weekend.
Just like keep your children to a routine you need to have one too. Once you start on try to keep it going even on weekends. You'll be happy at it later.
These are why I like being a morning person plus so many more not listed. Are you a morning person or a night owl?
