April Must Haves


After such a long winter, it's hard to believe it's actually spring. But April is here and the warmer weather is on it's way. Here is my Must Have list for April. bbcream4.23.15Moisturizer and makeup with SPF- I use sunscreen products daily all year long, but with the longer days and warmer weather I'm outside more, so it's even more important to get into the habit now. My first layer is a moisturizer with sunscreen- I like CeraVe AM. I used to really love the oil free version of Bobbi Brown's SPF 15 tinted moisturizer but they discontinued  the formula, although the regular version is still pretty good. Instead I've been using the BB Cream SPF 35- I like that it has a higher SPF and slightly more coverage while still being lightweight.

bananatrenchA Trench Coat- April showers require a lightweight rain coat, like my classic Burberry trench, which is also my most prized possession. It can dress up jeans and sneakers, and is a perfect cover up for a dressy night on the town. There are great trench coats out there at all price points, including this cute one from Banana Republic.

trx4.23.15TRX- So only nine weeks until summer, AKA bathing suit season, so it's time for me to step up my workout schedule. I started doing TRX with my trainer, Trish, from Method 360. Three years later I still love it and I swear it's the most effective and least boring way to stay strong. I got my very own for a birthday gift this year, and although I prefer the classes at M360, it's easy and convenient to get in a session at home if I have to.

cap4.23.15A Baseball Cap- My worn and faded Yankee cap used to be a casual staple for me in my twenties, but in an effort to be taken more seriously, I packed it away. But I'm bringing it back this spring! At this point in my life I've already proven myself, and I don't really want to take myself- or life- too seriously anyway!
