Hello, hello! Long time no favourites post! So today I’m going to catch up a bit! I’ll be sharing of my February, March, and April favourites! I’ll be sharing some entertainment favourites, some books, clothing, makeup, recipes, and a priceless item! Okay, let’s jump in!

The Imagineering Story– This has been one of my favourite things to watch on Disney+! I LOVE this type of stuff. So we watched this quickly, and if you like knowing behind the scenes stuff and the history of the Disney parks I would highly recommend it! I did leave the room during the last episode because I didn’t want any Rise of the Resistance spoilers :).
Tiger King– Yep- I watched it! I was definitely surprised with the twists and turns, but think it was a little over-hyped. I think if you are looking for something to binge it’s a good option, but in terms of hyped Netflix shows, I prefer Making a Murderer! But if you’ve watched Tiger King, what do you think?!
Daisy Jones and the Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid– I had heard so much about this book and was happy when my ebook copy came in! It read like a documentary and I could totally picture it in that way. I really liked it! It led to me to listening to some Fleetwood Mac because I heard that’s what the author listened to while writing the book. I liked The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by this author more, but I still enjoyed this book!
The Turn of the Key by Ruth Ware– This was the last book I had to read from this author (I think she has a new book that I now have to add to my list!), but I really enjoyed this one! A twist left me yelling “NO!” to an empty room, which I can’t say has happened before! It’s a creepy there’s someone in the house!
The Arrangement by Robyn Harding– I added this to my list after reading another book from this author, and had NO idea what it was about. So I was surprised when it ended up being about a young woman who ends up having a sugar daddy. But it had twists, and was really good!
Yes, Please by Amy Poehler– I think this was worth the read just for the chapter about Parks and Recreation! It made me want to start watching it all over again. I can’t say I knew much about Amy Poehler’s life before this book so it was interesting to learn where she cam from and how she got into comedy. I’d recommend it, especially if you are a Parks & Rec fan!
Zaful sweater– If you can’t tell this was a favourite from back in February when it was still winter and cold. This knit sweater is really comfortable and warm, and has a nice detail on the stomach that makes it feel a little fancier. It’s from the brand Zaful, but I got it through Amazon just in case I needed to utilize Amazon’s return policy.
Roots Sweatpants– Let’s be honest, if you are working from home like I am, you’re probably wearing sweatpants. So I’m sharing some of my favourites from Roots. They are really comfortable and are good quality that have held up nicely! They are also a slimmer fit which is nice, so they aren’t incredibly baggy. I’ve linked a pair that’s the closest to the ones I have, but mine are a few years old. I hold them up in the video at the bottom of the post!
Tarte lipstick in Rum Punch– I had been wearing this quite a bit (back when I was wearing makeup every day), and I really like it! It goes on smoothly and the colour is just a bit deeper than my natural lip colour. I think I got it in a sample set from Sephora during one of the fall sales. But I like having more products in smaller sizes, because you can switch it up without having to invest a lot of money. But I like this lipstick, and I don’t wear lipstick often.
Air Dry Creme from Kristen Ess– I’ve been of two minds while we are at home. One is to just let my hair air dry and not heat style it, to which I’ve been using this creme. You apply it through your hair when it’s 1/2 dried and it reduces frizz and adds shine. Once it’s dried I’ve been putting my hair up in a low bun to feel a bit more put together and to keep my hair our of my face. I haven’t heat styled my hair more than once in the last six weeks. The other side of my mind says I should embrace the curly/wavy of my hair and use my curl creme. So I’ve done a little bit of both. I’ve mentioned the curl creme in a favourites before so I thought I would share the other product I’ve been using! What are your doing with your hair during this time?
THE cookie recipe (from The Anna Edit)– These might be the best cookies I’ve ever made. They are massive, chewy and SO YUMMY. Milk chocolate hazelnut cookies that you scoop and then freeze. So they come out of the oven tall and delicious. I’d highly recommend making them. But be warned that you may want to eat them all!
Everything but the bagel seasoning– I live in Canada where we don’t have Trader Joe’s, but I have heard about the everything but the bagel seasoning! So I searched and found a recipe to make it, and it’s delicious! I’ve been using it on eggs and when I made bagels (quarantine baking for the win!), and it’s really easy! It’s just sesame seeds, black sesame seeds, poppy seeds, dried minced garlic and dried minced onion. So easy and so good!
Safe and healthy family- I don’t think there’s anything more important right now, and I feel very lucky to be able to say my family and Ethan’s family are all safe and healthy. I hope you are your family are the same!
