April 2016 Favorites

Please note: This is not a sponsored post.  As always, these are my own honest opinions.   I don’t have a ton of favorites this month because, quite honestly, I’ve still been enjoying the things from the two previous months (see February & March).  Regardless, I do have a good variety with food, accessories, and beauty being among the chosen ones.

Friday Favorites (5/29)

Happy Friday! This week, I have some new things and an old favorite to share with you.  I look forward to reading comments about what is on your favorites list this week!   The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing The title of this book is very suitable because the book truly is life-changing- and I imagine that it would have an even greater impact on someone who is disorganized or has accumulated a lot of clutter.  The basic concept is that we should only keep items in our home that bring...
