April was nuts with the launch of my new brand Boy Girl Mom and my podcast Boy Girl Mom and Dad. At this time I am still planning on sharing on Element of Fashion, but it did take a back seat the past 30 days, hence my ability to only post twice. Yikes! That being said, I still have some favorites to share with you.

Click on the images below to be taken to the direct link. Everything is hyperlinked below the collages as well.

  1. Bloomeffects Tulip Dew Drops Mineral Sunscreen. (c/o) I was hesitant at first about this product, but I really like it! It’s a great effortless product to put on and head out the door for a β€œmakeup-less” day. It is a little wetter than I prefer to look, but I think I like it better than the Ilia Super Serum. I like to tap some loose powder on my t-zone and chin to help me feel a bit more pulled together.

  2. Rinse Laundry Service. This has been a life savor for us! We send our laundry out because we don’t have in-unit laundry, but it is also a great time-saver even if you do have a washing machine in your home. They are located in a myriad of areas, so check them out if you are looking to outsource some tasks. Use my link and you’ll receive $30 off.

  3. Bewell Heart Pilates Socks. I have been trying to become a Pilates girlie this year. I have a set of grippy socks off Amazon, but these bad boys take the cake! I like that they go over my ankle and their heart grippers are the cutuest.

  4. Reformation Bardot Top. I bought this in ivory for a photoshoot, but also because I thought it would make a great basic. It is easy and goes with everything, but is also elevated with the square neckline. I grabbed a M in it and it works great. It also comes in pink and black.

  5. Annie’s Spring Pasta. Annie’s is on my twins’ regular, rotating menu, so they flipped when I found this cute spring version of one of their favorite meals. I also recently found a farm friends version that has cute little tractors.

  6. Side Dish Dressing. GF, DF, whole 30 friendly, plus it actually tastes good. These are great as salad dressings, but can be used for a lot more like pasta additions or coating meat. It comes in creamy sesame, chipotle ranch, and honey dijon. They are all marvelous, but I think my favorite is the creamy sesame. If you want to test them all, the multipack might be for you.

  7. Lake Pajamas Long Short Set. (c/o) These are my current comfy cozies. The cotton is the softest and they help me feel relaxed around the house. I love them for those chilly spring mornings as they still allow breathability when it warms up a bit. Lake’s Pima Cotton is available in other silhouettes if you don’t prefer this one. You WILL prefer the fabric though. It’s so nice! I love my silk pajamas, but don’t really like to wear them playing with my kids. These are perfect for lounging and playing.

  8. David’s Natural Toothpaste. I’ve tried a lot of toothpaste in my day and this one just felt different to me! I love how fresh it makes my mouth feel. It is fluoride free and whitening if those are some things you are looking for. It does have hydroxyapatite which is good a fluoride alternative.

  9. Ally Shoes Block Heel Pump. (c/o) Being in the market for a new nude pump, I loved the angled block heel of these Ally shoes. They don’t get stuck in cracks or grass and are more elevated than a traditional block heel. They have some really cool science about how their heels are more comfortable and I can actually say they are on the more comfy side of heel. I stood for 3+ hours in them the other weekend and was still going strong! You can try them for yourself with discount code ELLEMULENOS for 10% off.

  10. Show Me Your Mumu Beach Bum Swimsuit Bottom. I mentioned this here, but this bikini bottom has my heart! This is the matching top, but I’m mainly referencing the cut of the bottom. I’m hoping they come out with more colors in the coming seasons, because it is the first bikini I’ve felt good in postpartum.
