March Favourites

So it's finally time to type up the post I look forward to the most each month; my monthly favourites. I love to compile a list of favourites whether they are beauty based, fashion based or even lifestyle based. So without further ado, I'm going to start with my beauty and skincare loves of March.

Before this month I had never jumped on the Soap & Glory bandwagon, I figured their products were probably not up to the hype. Anyway, for quite some time I've had issues with my pores being to open and clogged so when I came across The Fab Pore range I decided that it was about time I gave the brand a chance. The first product that caught my eye was actually the 2-in-1 Facial Mask & Peel which needs to be left on for twenty-five minutes. I loved the fresh feeling that it gave me once it was washed away, it's actually an exfoliating product as well as a mask which worked for me because I was in need of a good deep cleanse. As more of an everyday product I purchased The Fab Pore Daily Micro Smoothing Moisture Lotion which did the job that my Garnier Skin Perfection Day Cream usually does so I'm very pleased about that. I also got the No Clogs Allowed Super Self Heating Deep Pore Detox Mask which, if left for five minutes, brings out impurities in the skin and for the most part unclogs pores. Suffice to say I was very pleased with Soap & Glory, you go Soap & Glory! (Mean Girls? You go Glen Coco!)

I was sent the Insta Natural Hyaluronic Acid Serum in February and, whilst I wasn't keen on it at first, it's something that's wormed its way into my favourites post. During the colder months it's important to keep your skin hydrated which is exactly what this has done for me, I've been wearing it under makeup to avoid letting my skin getting dry. Something else that I've been sent is the Zuka Eye Zone Intensive Repair Balm which is a product I chose out for my under eye shadows, it's certainly helped perk me up after long days at my new job.

This month I've also been really into bath bombs which is unusual for me because I don't usually like to have scented baths or anything that could possibly damage my hair. My absolute favourite at the moment is the Sweet Cherry Pie bath bomb from Bomb Cosmetics; it smells amazing, leaves the water a slightly rosy tint and doesn't make my hair feel bad if it gets touched by the water. 

Another staple item this month has had to be dry shampoo, it sounds gross but I just haven't had the time to wash my hair every night as I had when I wasn't working. Instead I have still bathed but kept my hair up and refreshed it with either the Blush or the Tropical Batiste Dry Shampoo. I've alternated between the two because I like my hair to change in scent and both of them smell divine! Before this month I had been using the Fudge Urban Dry Shampoo which, whilst it also smells amazing, it didn't quite work out as well as the Batiste. It didn't rub in as easily as the Batiste and a few times that I wore it I spotted that I hadn't quite disguised it as well as it could have been. Also, the Urban Fudge stuff comes in a much smaller tin and doesn't last longer so you really get more value for money with Batiste.

For as long as I can remember I've loved The Little Mermaid, in fact, it's my all time favourite Disney movie so when I came across this t-shirt in Primark I couldn't help myself. It's an adorable design and I loved lounging around in it during the weekend; the material is lightweight, it's a baggy design and it's easily paired with pretty much any trousers. I also love the rolled up short sleeves, it just added to the casual style of the tee so I didn't really need to do it myself, I bet this would be great to wear in the summer. Primark does have quite a cute range of t-shirts adorned with slogans, cartoons and logos... I saw a few Harry Potter t-shirts that I have my eye on for next payday including a varsity jersey styled tee with Hogwarts written across it. This just proves that you don't need to break the bank to buy cute tees, nice try pricey fandom design sites! 

Last but certainly not least is the vinyl that I saw last month in HMV but couldn't afford. It's the My Chemical Romance May Death Never Stop You album which is their greatest hits collection from the start of the band (including demos) to the end in 2013. I was determined to buy this, anyone will tell you how crazy I got over it, I was so ill when I went out to buy it but I really wanted it so... Here it is. In my bedroom. Playing as I type this up. Best £30 spent of the year, even if the staff did look at me a bit funny when I brought it up to the till. I'll probably invest in more vinyl over the course of the year so this won't be the last favourites post featuring my turntable. The sound system is amazing!

Anyway, these are my March Favourites and I'm sure I'll end up switching things up before my April post but, hey, I'm only human.


  1. Love the Batiste Dry Shampoo! It should be a staple product for EVERYONE!
