- March 2015 Favourites...

So March flew by, right? Not only have we officially entered Spring, but the end of the month also marked my blog's first birthday! I honestly couldn't be happier to be a part of this lovely and exciting community, and I still love blogging as much as I did the day I started - if not more.

Despite my blog now being one year old, I've never created a monthly favourites post! It seems kind of odd really as they're such popular posts to be published and ones I enjoy reading a lot. I guess I just didn't want to force one and feature anything I could get my hands on. However, when thinking back over March, I've realised a number of things stood out to me which I'd like to share with you all.

I have no idea if these posts will be monthly, but if there has been several things I've genuinely loved during a month, I'll do a favourites post. These won't be limited to beauty or fashion; I want to keep them completely random. Introduction over, let's see what I loved in March!

As mentioned, Spring has sprung and brought with it some lovely sunshine and increased hours of daylight. I'm not sure what happened to me, but this transition made me pretty much leap towards brighter beauty products. It's safe to say I've rekindled my love for MAC lipstick in Vegas Volt; a gorgeous creamy coral. You may have also seen that I've recently been sporting OPI nail polish in 'Need Sunglasses?'*; a fab yellow-toned orange.

As well as brighter lips and tips, I've switched up my go-to fragrance. Emporio Armani Diamonds is a surprising choice for me as I usually head straight towards bolder floral, woody scents. That being said, I'm a massive fan of this. With top notes of lychee and raspberry, it's fresh, uplifting and très sexy.

March also saw me digging around in my overflowing basket of body products. Out came the Soap & Glory Righteous Butter and oh my, I had forgotten how much I loved this. You may have seen my tweet here which sums it up really - must repurchase asap.

Beauty favourites aside, it seems only right to mention the Georgini Circular Drop Pendant as it pretty much hasn't left my neck. Intricate, dainty and delicate jewellery will always be my top choice when it comes to accessories.

You might be wondering why I have a rolled up mat lingering in my photos: yoga. How have I not given it a go sooner? I spent March carrying out the #30DaysOfYoga Youtube videos and have continued to put some time aside each day for a routine. The fact I managed to happily stick to it each day says something! I actually have a fitness update post scheduled where I discuss it further, so stay tuned!

So there are my March favourites. I hope you liked this first favourites instalment to my blog. Let me know what you think of my picks and what you've been loving in March!

  7. Vegas Volt is such a great/vibrant colour for this season. Not sure I'd be able to pull it off but it seems to look great on some people, especially with a tan. The necklace is also very cute. :) x

  30. Congratulations on your blog turning a year. So many people have been blogging for a year now!!! Not me yet, mine will be a year in July. :)

    I never put favourites up either because I think there will be someone who'll favour the same things as me.

    I should definitely check out the coral lipstick.

  32. I really want to get into Yoga, but I just never seem to find the time. Crazy as I could do it anywhere and I am sure it would do me the world of good. I love the Opi nail varnish such a brilliant colour Lucy x
