April is the best month ever because its my Birthday Month! I'll be turning a year older than I already am (what, you really think I'm going to tell you how old I am?) this year. My son was born on my birthday so that makes my birthday even more special. I'm already getting emails with birthday freebies in it, I'll do a big round up of all of them later this month for sure.
Did anyone do a good prank or get pranked really good this year? I made "chocolate balls" for my boss that were actually cotton balls dipped in chocolate. It was pretty hilarious. Some of the cosmetic companies I follow on Instagram did some good pranks this year, loved the NYX Unibrow one and the Benefit's Miss Cleo gag. Were there any good ones I missed? What was your favorite?
Sometimes I like to challenge myself with makeup or skin care things. Like one month I did a face mask every day and in March I used a different shade of lipstick every day that I actually wore lipstick. I think most people are like me and have favorites they reach for over and over again. So actually using different colors was difficult sometimes when I really just wanted to wear my favorite red instead. I did find some products I may toss since I really don't like them, so this ended up being a good exercise for me.
I actually managed to snag one of the curated boxes from Birchbox this month, I'm so excited! I got the New York box, which is full of products I really wanted to try like the Cargo waterproof blush. I live on the West Coast and an not Ace (yet) so I'm normally in the last group to get the choice emails. I have no idea how I actually managed to get it but I got the confirmation email so I'm holding Birchbox to it. The actual Birchbox should arrive after my birthday, can't wait.
