Friday Five

Processed with VSCOcam with t1 preset
How is it the first Friday in October already? Summer, I miss you already but I’m looking forward to sweaters, boots, my oldest son’s soccer games, and pumpkin everything!

I’m April, a makeup-loving mommy of two boys and the blogger behind April’s Lush Lashes. I strongly stand by the idea that people wear makeup for themselves, not because they’re trying to impress anyone. If you’re rocking some winged liner while grocery shopping or have a full face of makeup during a playdate, I fully support you! Stop by my online shop or just say hi on Facebook, and Instagram.

Here a few of my faves for this week’s Friday Five:

Tamara from Mad Bijou shared her Halloween costume ideas and it’s giving me great inspiration since I’m always at a loss.

Did you know it’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month? Angie at Chicago Beauty Report has rounded up some great products to purchase that will also fund research for this horrible disease.

I wish I had the confidence to rock this fringed skirt like Lisa from Sisters Marie! She and Kaitlyn have such a great sense of style and I love seeing their daily outfits.

I practically licked the screen of my laptop when I saw the Grilled Smores cone Erica from Everything Erica was lucky enough to eat! I think I need to clear my calendar for next year’s Chicago Gourmet.

Breanna from Crafty Coin always has fantastic tips on budgeting and cooking but I am utterly impressed with her 20 minute grocery haul this week. I need to take more notes from her!

Hope you all have a great weekend and thanks for reading my Friday Five!
