OK. Where is time going?! We’re already totally and completely into Spring and Easter is already over, the days are longer and warmer, and it’s not that I’m not happy about that, but 2016 seems so full of things happening too fast and news, and changes and time seems to fly faster than usual this year! I’ve enjoyed March, it has been – not very good but – nice, so here are a few things I’ve loved this month…
My lips are as chapped and dry lately as they have never been in wintertime – I don’t know what’s going on but I really can’t go without a thick layer of lip balm on these days. Luckily my all time favourite Nuxe Reve De Miel Lip Balm came to the rescue every single evening this month and it has not left my bedside table for a single second. If you haven’t tried it yourself yet, or haven’t read about it: it’s the thickest, most moisturising and rich lip balm on the market, jam-packed with honey and shea butter, the very best to treat chapped lips! I can totally see the difference in the morning if I forget to apply it the night before!
On other news, I’ve popped into Lush recently and brought home one of their fresh masks, Love Lettuce, one I’ve never tried before. It’s a combination of moisturising, exfoliating and soothing properties with agar seaweed gel, almond oil, honey, lavender oil and almond shells. It actually was quite a blessing this one was suggested to me by the girl at Lush, as my skin is feeling a little bit gross and oilier than usual, and the presence of kaolin in this mask helps with removing the excess oil while also brightening the complexion. All of this in 5-10 minutes!
It has been a long while I took some time to catch up with my favourite TV series and it felt lovely to watch a few episodes of Girls in a row (although binge-watching can become quite an addiction to me!). I’ve always loved Girls but the new season is simply amazing: maybe it’s because of Japan, or just the fact that I’ve never loved Jessa as a character but in this season she is lovely…! But I won’t spoil anything else – just catch up with it if you haven’t already, it’s lovely!
In the meanwhile I’ll admit I’m liking to munch on chocolate of all sorts but in particular these Lindt Hello Cookies & Cream Chocolates* – just because they have the sweetest creamy (and crunchy at the same time) center, and if there’s something I want to treat myself to lately, that’s surely chocolate – I blame it on Easter!
Lately we’ve been experimenting with homemade juicing quite a lot and since we don’t love to throw away any of the puree we’re left with after putting all our fruits and veggies in a juice extractor, we like to come up with a few impromptu biscuit recipes to use up them all. The ones in picture were my personal favourites, simply made with 150g of fruits puree (I believe it was of carrots, oranges, lemons and also ginger), 150g whole wheat flour, chocolate chips, 50g sugar and 40ml seed oil – that’s it! But I’m going to share a very similar recipe soon on here – and those are even better!
At the beginning of the month I went on the hunt for long (but not too much as I’m pretty short) thick cardigans to transition my outfits from Winter to Spring. It wasn’t easy, but when I spotted these Forever21 Textured Open-Front Cardigans I knew I had to have them and bought two of them. I wasn’t wrong as they have been the perfect addition to my wardrobe lately and I’ve been wearing them non-stop ever since I got them: they’re the perfect combination of cozy, practical, soft and casual which make them great to top off literally any outfit! And I love the taupe/cream and burgundy/navy colour combinations!
While I was at it, and since I’ve bought one Forever21 soft bra before and it’s been my favourite for a while, I thought I’d indulge in a new triangle bra: their soft bras are the most comfortable I’ve tried so far and I don’t know if it’s just my body shape, but they fit me like a glove! Totally worth looking into them if you’re after new nice soft corset or triangle bras!
And that’s it for my favourites this month!
As usual, I’d love to know what’s on your March favourites list! x
