Currently Craving: April Favorites

 photo April favorites_zpsnbdmv32i.jpg

I know I say this every month, but another month is seriously over?! I'm not sure if it's series' like this one or what making the time go so fast, but I sure am excited for summer so no *real* complaints here! Yesterday was my last day of classes for undergrad and I'm seriously so beyond excited. Two essays and two tests stand between me and summer/no more school!
I feel like I say this a lot too, but there has been SO many amazing products I've tried and loved or have found and want this April. It's been a busy shopping month - mainly because of Mother's Day (check out my gift guide ideas here!) but I could never complain about shopping, let's be real here ; )

Finding product favorites isn't exactly hard, clearly - but figuring out which are my favorite things is also good for figuring out what to buy, what to pass on and what to wait on until it goes on sale. In case you missed my previous Currently Craving posts, here are January's, February's and from March.

From shoes to bags to fun summer must-haves, it's been hard to narrow it down to less than a million products to share here, but here are some of my absolute favorites:

Gold Pineapple Luau Candle // David Yurman Link Bracelet // Tassel Keychain // Colorful Tassel Pillow // Nautical Rope Belt // Scalloped Sandals // Bare Minerals Face Primer // Gemstone Earring Jackets // Gold Pineapple Candle // Pineapple Tshirt // Mint Green Kendra Scott Earrings // Pineapple Pool Float // Mint Nikes // Sunnies // Cupcakes & Cashmere Book // Rebecca Minkoff Crossbody

Can you tell that I'm extremely pineapple obsessed?! If it has a pineapple on it, I'll buy it - literally! Everything I'm loving this month is perfect for spring and summer and clearly, pineapples ; )

Gold Pineapple Luau Candle: I bought this from Bath and Body Works during the $12.50 three wick candle sale last week and I fell in LOVE! when it came yesterday. I wasn't sure if I would like it and I usually don't buy candles online unless I know I love the scent (because like I always say, we still have no smellivision even though it's 2016...) but this is so fresh and perfect for the kitchen or dining room. They make it in foaming soap too, so that's next on my list.

David Yurman Link Bracelet: link bracelets have become pretty popular over the past year or so and I'm considering getting this Yurman as a grad gift to myself! It has blue sapphire on the ends which is my birthstone, an even bigger sign that I need it! I love the way Yurmans look together and with other bracelets so it would make for a fun addition to any arm party.

Tassel Keychain: I found this the other day and bought it in all three colors! It's almost an exact dupe of this Rebecca Minkoff key chain and the best part is it's $5!!!

Colorful Tassel Pillow: I'm not sure what's more real.. the tassel obsession or pillow obsession! Changing up pillows for summer is a fun refresh and who could resist with pillows that are as cute as this one!

Nautical Rope Belt: I'm not a big belt person, but sometimes it's necessary. I love this cute nautical looking belt for jeans or shorts in the summer!

Scalloped Sandals: are these not the cutest?! Another obsession, scallop detailing! Speaking of scallop detailing I also love this shirt, perfect for summer.

Bare Minerals Face Primer: since I can never find a face primer I really love, I've been trying them out as it's been getting warmer out and so far, so good with this one! It leaves my face feeling fresh, not sticky and it seems to be perfect in the sun and warm weather.

Gemstone Earring Jackets: these earrings are simple and cute and can be dressed up or down! I love earrings jackets, they're so easy to dress up or down.

Gold Pineapple Candle: if only I could have allll the pineapple things in the world! This candle is a mini version of some of the bigger ones that have become so popular and it's been so hard to find... I went to both Target's near me and neither had it, so I finally ordered it online. It's going to go on the tray on my bathroom counter; a fun little DIY I have going on that I can't wait to share!

Pineapple Tshirt: ...do I really have to say any more?! I can hardly wait until this comes! It's by far the cutest pineapple tee I've seen and I can't wait to style it for summer.

Mint Green Kendra Scott Earrings: these are my favorite shaped earrings in the entire Kendra collection! I got them in this month's Rocksbox and had to keep them. You can try them and similar ones out too in a Rocksbox for FREE for your first month with code dailydoseofdesignxoxo! Get as many boxes as you can ship back in the months time and if you're not totally satisfied, you can cancel before you get billed. Getting a new box in the mail is the best and so much fun to open it and see what your personal stylist picks for you each time! Give it a try!

Pineapple Pool Float: last year I needed my donut float and this year I NEED this pineapple float! I can't wait to open the pool in a few weeks and get this fun float to relax on all day long : )

Mint Nikes: this time of year makes me want to go on walks, sometimes runs (sometimes being the key word) and especially if it's by the beach! I've heard so many great things about this model and I can't wait to try them!

Sunnies: I"m always on the lookout for fun new sunglasses and these Maui Jim tortoise shell pair stands out from any other similar ones I've seen. I haven't heard of this brand before, but now that I have I'm loving all of these!

Cupcakes & Cashmere Book: I'm always adding books to my coffee table/shelving displays and this is the newest to my collection - there is SO much home inspo in this and it's such a fun read, highly recommend!

Rebecca Minkoff Crossbody: I just bought this bag and I cannot WAIT to get it in! Rebecca Minkoff has the prettiest blues in her collection so I'm super excited to see this in person.
What are you loving this month? Happy (almost) May!
