My favorites post is a little early this month, but it's definitely an improvement on my forgetting to do it last month! The theme of my March favorites is very bright, pink and girly, a reflection of how much I'm loving the brighter, sunny weather we're starting to have. March has been a very busy, productive month. There's been lots of work and a return to fitting in regular workouts. Also come spring and summer I get to spend alot of my working week outdoors, which is always welcome when the sun is out even if it's still cold. So basically I'm feeling some love for March right now! Anyway on to my favorites for March; there's a mix of beauty and books this month. I've been spending alot less time looking at the Daily Mail side bar of shame and instead reading more books. My bf treated me to Tanya Burr's book Love Tanya for Valentines, it's such a pretty coffee table book. The book chronicles Tanya's story and where her blog all started, mixed in with beauty and hair tips alongside recipes. A very different book I recently added to my bookshelf and am right in the middle of reading is Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail. Following the death of her beloved mother Cheryl Strayed spent three moths hiking the 1,100 miles of the Pacific Crest Trail. It's a beautiful, heartbreaking, inspiring and emotional story. I will definitely review this must read once I completely finish it. When I'm getting all zen, reading a book in my PJs, I need to have a candle burning obviously. My mammy is obsessed with Max Benjamin candles and they scent practically every room in our home. The 3 Floral Favorites Candle Set is gorgeous, my favorite being White Pomegranate. Max Benjamin candles are the perfect present, I buy my mammy different scents for every birthday/Christmas/Mother's day and she's always thrilled with them.
When it came to beauty products this month, my favorite products are distinctly springy. Despite the bright pastel shades of the Ciaté minis I like to decorate my nails with, they're actually from the Ciaté Advent Calender I blogged about here. It was such a bargain in TKMaxx, technically I bought it for my sister but she doesn't mind me borrowing a few! When your nails are decked out in pretty shades the cheeks need to step up their game too. Smashbox is up there on my list of favorite makeup brands ever alongside Bareminerals, I would buy everything from these brands if I had the money (alot of money). Their Halo Long Wear Blush is no exception. I've used Blissful which is a berry shade and Peachy Dream which is coral. These blushes are stunning and really pigmented, you just turn the wheel and take a small amount of blush as you really don't need much. It's always great for the wallet when a little goes a long way.
What are you favorites this month?
