April Favorites – Media Edition

We are halfway through May, but I thought I should still share my April favorites!

This month I decided to just focus on media. Here are some songs, apps, and miscellaneous bits of media I encountered during the month of April!


I just love Sara Bareilles. As a commuter, I’m always looking for good music to sing along with while I’m stuck in traffic, and she is perfect for that. Her new single Brave is awesome – it’s perfect for listening to on the way to a challenging day, or just before kickboxing class. I cannot wait for her new album this summer!


Michael Buble also came out with a new album, To Be Loved.


It isn’t my favorite of his albums, but it’s always nice to have fresh music. I’ve especially enjoyed listening to his duet with Reese Witherspoon – a remake of Something Stupid. The original by Frank Sinatra and his daughter Nancy is literally the most-played song on my iTunes. I don’t know why I like it so much, but I really do and it was fun to hear a new version (the old one is still better though).


I really enjoy making lists. It’s possible I have an addiction. I’ve tried a few list apps but never cared for them until I tried Wunderlist. I love it so much! It’s easy to navigate and check items off. I use it to organize blog ideas, shopping lists, wish lists, to do lists, etc etc.


I also really like PicTapGo for editing photos. The filters are helpful for initial adjustments before Instagram, and I like that you can adjust the opacity of the filters.



Benji and Judy’s Tokyo trip.

Judy is a beauty guru on YouTube, and she vlogs every single day with her husband and baby. I’ve been watching for nearly a year, and I just love them. They actually live pretty close to me, so it’s fun to see them go to the same places I go. During April they went to Japan for two weeks, and I really enjoyed seeing 20 minutes or so of their travels every day.

How Animals Eat Their Food

This video is so dumb. Maybe it was because it was the end of a Friday night after a long week, but I was laughing so hard my abs hurt.

Call Me Maybe Squat Challenge

This little workout is short but you are guaranteed to feel the burn! It hurts so bad! I’ve been doing it almost every day and can finally do the whole thing.

Blog Post

My sister emailed me this story, informing me that she was laughing so hard tears were rolling down her face and she was snorting. I started to read it and had to stop several times, because I was starting to lose control and I was in the library. This is the story of a first date gone wrong and it is SO FUNNY.

Warning though: If you don’t like fart humor then avoid!!


These are my April Favorites! If you have any videos, music etc that you are enjoying lately, feel free to share below.
