March Lifestyle Favourites4/06/2016 10:47:00 pm
This month is the first month that I thought I'd share some of my favourites from the month of March. As I'm not a beauty / fashion blogger, these favourites are going to cover different aspects of my life; anything and everything that has helped to make last month that little bit better.
Burt's Bees Lip Balm
With the transition from Winter to Spring, I've found my lips were getting a bit dry and cracked. Burt's Bees lip balms have been my saviour. I just pop one of them in my pocket or my handbag so that throughout the day I can apply and keep my lips hydrated. I have them in the mint flavour and the honey flavour. The mint one has such a strong smell to it, and I can feel my lips tingling when its on, and making it my go to one out of the pair.
Favourite Beauty Product
Stila - purple eye dust
Although this has been in my collection for quite some time, it has only been this month that I've actually started using it. After reading that purple compliments green eyes, I've made it my mission to use purple in lots of my eye make up looks. My staple look right now is doing a brown smokey eye, then patting the purple dust into the inner corner and brushing outwards over the lid. The dust adds a little bit of glitter, making a regular smokey eye a little bit brighter and sparkly.
The Other Side of the Door
I made a couple of cinema trips this month, but my favourite has got to have been The Other Side of the Door. If you're into scary films, then it is well worth a trip to see it. It's by far the best scary film I've seen recently, I jumped and was so close to covering my eyes on more than one occasion. Ghosts, possession, and an exorcism are all here, as well as some creepy characters that pop up out of nowhere. It's definitely one to watch if you like being on the edge of your seat.
(and what better goes with a movie than popcorn? Which has been my favourite treat this month and as you can see, it is always on hand)
Beneath the Surface - Heidi Perks
If you haven't already seen my post about this book then you can check it out here. I absolutely loved this book, and strongly recommend it to anyone who likes a good thriller. You'll find yourself guessing throughout, and reading to find out more and more. It's such a great book for anyone who likes crime & thrillers!
Forever 21 - Elephant Dress
I picked this little number up with the intention of wearing it all the time while I'm abroad this summer. How could I resist, it was a steal at £10 and the pattern is too adorable. Elephants are repeated across the whole material, which is light and perfect for hotter climates. However, I couldn't resist wearing it when I see it hanging in my wardrobe, so I've begun putting a black top underneath and wearing it with tights. It's a super cute outfit, and one that will be featured in a OOTD in the coming week. I can't wait to style this in different ways and show off this super cute pattern.
Canon Bridge Camera
I bought this bridge camera back in September - SX410 - and found it has massively upped my photography (especially since my phone camera is less than ideal). This month, I truly realised my love for this camera, after I look it to the Little Mix concert I attended. The quality of the photos are incredible, and I can't believe how well the photos and videos came out. The camera itself is super easy to use, with a digital screen to see exactly what you're taking photos of, and a great lens that focuses really well. After seeing how well this camera worked at the concert, I know it is now my go to for every situation that needs a photo taken.
And that's my favourites from March! Let me know what your favourites are too, and if you'd like to see more of these in the upcoming months.
If you haven't seen my March in pictures, then you can have a look here, to see everything I got up to last month. And be sure to check out all my posts from the last month!
Lots of love,
