Eva’s Obsessions: April

Eva Amurri Martino shares a roundup of products that she is loving for April, including Melamine plates, a nail mask, a storybook projector app, and a bath soak

It’s finally Spring time, and my mood is decidedly lighter and brighter than in the Winter months.  If there is one thing I can’t do again next year, it’s a five month winter– I have to find a way to break it up with a little tropical vacay or something next time! I’m already scheming to figure it out.  In the meantime, I’m enjoying all the Spring colors and energy, and I love injecting that energy in to the products I’m trying out.  This month I found some amazing things that are exciting me so much, and I hope you love them as much as I do! Here are my monthly Obsessions for April…

Herbivore Coconut Milk Bath Soak

The scent of this coconut milk bath soak is so insanely delicious I have to try to keep myself from eating it.  It smells EXACTLY like a coconut macaroon.  I love putting a scoop or two of this in my bath and just relaxing with a glass of wine at the end of a long day.  It’s so moisturizing , and since I’m allergic to cow dairy, it’s a great milk bath alternative for me!

Moonlite Storybook Projector

My kids are as obsessed with this little gadget as I am, and it’s totally transformed our bedtime routine! It’s such a fun little toy! You download the Moonlite app, and then pop the projector on to your iPhone.  You put the corresponding slide reel in to the projector, and then you read along on the app while you turn the reel.  The stories project so beautifully, and the app even has little sound effects that you can press on while you read.  We do one of the stories every night before reading a traditional book.  It really helps settle my kids down at bedtime. This would be the best birthday gift for a child as well!

Eva Amurri Martino shares some brightly colored flowered melamine plates as part of her monthly obsessions product roundup

Floral Melamine Plates

I saw these at Anthropologie the other day and they stopped me in my tracks.  I just adore them!  They’re melamine so they’re not breakable, and the bright colors are so beautiful and modern at the same time.  I can’t wait to serve meals and entertain off of these plates this Summer! The whole collection is beautiful.

Nail Therapy Multivitamin Nail Treatment

I don’t know if it was the never-ending Winter, or I need to change my vitamins, but my nails have been so weak recently! I also love gel manicures, which I’m sure doesn’t help.  I found these adorable nail masks, and I’ve been loving them! You slip each little sleeve over each finger tip, and the solution works to moisturize, fortify, and protect your nails.  I like to do this once a week before bed while I watch a show or the news.

    As usual Eva, great items for obsession!

    You may ask your manicurist about the Dip technique. I’ts changed my life…it reduces broken and chipped nails. It has made my nails stronger. It also lasts three weeks!

    Loving the plates…i love a flower pattern. Are they dishwasher safe? When melamine first came out, they didn’t recommend dishwashers. 😏

    Love to all!

    • I just got the powder gel the other day! I looooved it, but I found it so much more time consuming to take off.

    Hi Eva! As far as nails go, check out the Essie gel couture line. It’s like a gel nail polish and lasts two weeks but doesn’t do the harm that gels do. I was skeptical, but they actually really work well!

    You must try the Herbivore Coconut scrub to get rid of the winter dry skin!

    I heartily second Sue’s recommendation to try the dip powder gel manicures – they are incredibly durable and, because they don’t peel off, water doesn’t get trapped between the polish and your nails, which is what causes the nails to weaken. I also can go 3 weeks between manicures – honestly, it’s only because my nails have grown that I need to go even then, because the polish does. Not. Chip.
