Favourites | March



March brought Easter, and Daylight Savings so cheers March, you're a good 'en. Winter is officially over and I'm officially happy about it. As much as I'm enjoying the sun (/cloud) streaming in to my living room throughout the evening, I will say I've been feeling a little lost without my routine of lighting a zillion candles and getting cosy by 5pm. Who am I kidding, candles are still being lit. Although in March I did eventually get around to putting away my Christmas Treats Yankee Candle, and am now on the hunt for a more season friendly scent.

Throughout March my house has been transformed in to a Spring sensation. Not really, but I have taken the opportunity to pop a bunch of Tulips in every room I possibly can. So Tulips definitely have to feature in this monthly favourites. 

I also got a bit over excited and decorated the house for Easter (check out my crafty Easter post here), and the Bunny Bunting I made definitely has to feature in my favourites as well. I've taken it down now, and it's presence will be sadly missed. 

Speaking of Easter, from the very beginning of March, I couldn't resist picking up a Malteaster Bunny every time I went in to a shop, or every time I walked passed a shop, or every time I made a special trip out specifically just to get one/a handful. On Easter morning Gareth and I did a little Easter egg hunt. I hid Creme eggs around the house for him and he hid Malteaster Bunnies for me. So now I'm well and truly stocked up. I'm lying, my supplies have quickly diminished, I'm afraid they'll have all gone in the next week and I'll be left to starve. 

On to beauty favourites, and I really only have a few this month. Probably due to being pre-occupied with the above. First up is this Real Techniques Expert Face Brush. I love RT brushes but oddly enough I've never used this brush before.  My sister got me the Expert Face Brush for Christmas and I've only just broken it out. I already had two base applicators I was so settled with, so I was in no rush to give this newbie a chance. I usually use my RT Miracle Complexion sponge to apply my base, but I turn to my RT Buffing Brush from the Core Collection if I'm wanting a really quick and easy application, so I wasn't sure where this brush was going to fit in to my little routine. It's place it seems, is instead of the Buffing Brush. Even though it's smaller and feels less dense, it's just as quick and easy and I actually prefer it a lot more. So I hold my hands up, I was wrong, I love you Expert Face Brush. 

Something I've had for a while, sitting at the back of my make up drawers, patiently waiting it's turn is the No7 Stay Perfect Shade and Define Pencil in the shade Coffee Bean. I have used this eyeshadow pencil previously, but I'm having a real moment with it recently. Wether it's quickly shading in my whole lid and blending out, or just using it to trace and define my lash line, I've used it almost every day in March. I also have the shade Glistening Ray which I use a lot as well. They've got great pigmentation, fab staying power and a little bit of shimmer. And they're also super easy to apply and blend... everything I look for in an eyeshadow!

I've also re-visited the Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Lipstick in the shade Happy New Year. As above, this has also been sat at the back of my drawers, unloved and forgotten about. But last month I'd had enough of dark berry autumn tones on my lips and was craving a not quite nude/pink lip and scouted through my vast lip collection to re-discover this little gem. Although it can be a little drying, the longevity makes up for it. It's also the most gorgeous colour and really flattering to my pale skin tone. 

And finally, I cracked open a new bottle of body wash in March. Body wash seems to be something I'm always well stocked up on. So when I finally finished my beloved Soap & Glory Clean On Me, I browsed through my bathroom drawers and chose the Aussie Mega Watt Shower Gel, which my sister also gifted me for Christmas. That's two products in this months faves I need to thank her for! The scent is really nice but quite difficult to describe. If I had to pick two words it would be 'energising' and 'subtle'... does that make any sense? Probably not, but it's all I've got. Either way, it's pleasing to my nostrils. It also lathers up like a dream.

So that's it for March! I'd love to see what everyone else has been enjoying the past month so leave your links below if you've done a Favourites post and I'll be having a snoop!
