I’ve got a couple of March favorites. I had to think hard about these, but yeah, I’ve been going back to these guys a lot in March. Since I work out first thing in the morning, I’ve been needing some sort of pre-workout meal / snack and I think I saw either a blog post or video from viviannadoesmakeup about ‘Peanut Butter-stuffed Date’ as a good workout snack. I was having oatmeal, but I found it a bit heavy and I don’t think I was quickly digesting it before I head out. I really don’t have a favorite brand of date, but this is my favorite brand of peanut butter: Fred Meyer Brand Natural Creamy. It’s just peanuts and oil, and I have to keep it in the fridge. I’m really loving this quick meal with coffee on my drive to the gym.
Since the weather lately has been a bit bipolar here, my hair has bit too much volume for my taste. And since I use a flat iron on most days, I’ve been giving it beating. So after I wash my hair, I’ve been applying L’Oréal Sleek It Frizz Vanishing Cream before letting it air dry. Then when my roots are almost dry, I’ve been applying Gariner Sleek & Shine Anti-Frizz Serum to the body and ends of the hair. This combo is working great with my hair, plus using the Wen Cleansing Conditioner instead of soap and keeping washing my hair to only two-three times a week. It works for my hair!
My next fave is the Sephora Instant Nail and Cuticle Care. I didn’t think I was going to be using this very much, but since I’ve been doing my nails every week (and constantly washing them since there are people in the office passing colds around again), it has been a lifesaver of keeping my nail area from drying and cracking. I totally recommended it to a friend who cuticles were getting a bit out of control!
I’ve also been reaching for my Forever21 Blush and I’ve been using it so much that I no longer know the shade since it has rubbed off. So it’s a favorite along with my epicurean lip balm. I started reaching for that one again when the weather started getting cold again and I had to turn on the heater. Cracked lips are never good.
And for my fashion favorites, of course my new Wayfarer-dupe sunglasses from Amazon, but i also got a couple of tops from Old Navy that I’ve worn every week. I got a really soft grey sweater on clearance and a new white tank. The tank is a little different from all my other ones as it is a bit more relax and slouchy. Loving it!
And with that, I’m going leave you with my song that was on repeat, and still it, Pharrell Williams’ Happy. I just don’t know why, but it makes me want to dance. Maybe it’s the weather…
