Monthly Favourites | March

It's officially Spring!! So here's my March favourites, I can't believe another month has come to an end, this year is honestly flying by and I can't believe it's April in a few days. Spring is here and before we know it we will be in August enjoying cocktails in the sun!! This is my first monthly favourites post so let me know if you would like me to continue these each month, I love reading these style post's so I hope you like it. I've included beauty products, skincare and also lifestyle bits and bobs.  
Benefit Roller Lash Mascara: here we have a newbie by Benefit that has only recently been released in full size which I am still meaning to pick up. This is a sample size which was free in the ELLE magazine I'm guilty of buying 4 magazines just so I had enough before the full sized one came out. This mascara gives me such long lashes and it lasts all day, I have a first impressions blog post on this mascara so definitely go and check that out here -> (Benefit Roller Lash Mascara Blog Post)
Urban Decay Naked Basics 2 Palette: Urban Decay palettes are my favourite I own every single Naked Palette and I love them all! I have recently been using this for the day time and night it's a great nude matte palette that you can create many looks with from subtle looks for the day to a dark smokey eye for the night. There's a blog post all about this Palette here -> (Urban Decay Naked Basics 2 Palette Blog Post)
Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant Cream: This is definitely my number one skincare must have. I go through these far too quickly but I can't live without it. It's been a favourite of mine for month's now but I thought I would mention it in this post just in case any of you haven't yet come across it. Eight hour cream is not actually a cream it's a balm, it can be used for just about everything it soothes, relieves, softens your skin all year round. I use it on my lips, my elbows, my cuticles and also to sooth down my eyebrows at night. I can't fault this product at all I LOVE IT!!
La Roche Posay Serozinc: As soon as this was available in the UK through Escentual I had to order one. I love the fact it comes in a spray and it takes the place of a toner in between cleansing and moisturising. I honestly feel this tightens my pores and it gives a nice cooling sensation while soothing the skin, this will be great in the summer also as it's really refreshing I use this morning and night.
Burt's Bees Refreshing Lip Balm in Grapefruit: have been a life saver in these colder months I recently got to try out the scented ones you can read my full post about them here -> (Burt's Bees Lip Balms Blog Post) This is a refreshing lip balm in the scent Pink Grapefruit it smells amazing and leaves my lips feeling very moisturised throughout the day.
Dessi Designs iPhone 6 Case: How cute is my new phone case I absolutely love it! This gorgeous floral case is from Dessi Designs on Etsy! Definitely go and check out her shop -> (DessiDesigns) she does some lovely phone cases iPad and Macbook laptop cases! You can also follow her on Twitter: Dessi_Designs and on Facebook: DessillievaDesigns
Mr Wonderful Vanilla Ice Cream Candle: My candle obsession isn't getting any better I told myself I would not buy any for a while but then I come across Mr Wonderful's Instagram and had to check out the website, I saw this candle and knew I had to have it! Mr Wonderful is based in France so the postage charge was quite expensive but it honestly smells amazing and comes in the cutest packaging so I'm so happy I got it! It smells exactly like Vanilla Ice Cream and it's divine!
365 Blog Topic Ideas: This book is pretty straight forward it's 365 blog topic ideas for the lifestyle blogger who has nothing to write about. Each page has a different blog topic idea on it and nothing else no other writing is included. I like the format and it has a very basic concept. I have actually been going through it just to get some inspiration for future blog posts. If you are having trouble with what to write about next definitely go and purchase this book you'll be able to get some inspiration and also adapt it and put your own spin on it.
Wrap Me recently sent me this awesome personalised wrapping paper and I love it!! I can't wait to order some for my mum for her birthday I think she will be amazed by it. You can order your personalised wrapping paper here ->

  20. Ooh I love your blog! First, the background for your pictures is spot on because it's rustic but still brings out the colors in the product packaging. Also, I gotta try that new Benefit mascara since you gave it such a great review because I've tried others but none have really stolen my heart yet. And that hand cream is EXACTLY what I need right now! The place on my hands where my rings sit are so dry and no cream has fixed them but maybe the balm like consistency will help a bit. Thank you for such great ideas!
