Monthly Favorites – March 2016

I am going to start a series of Monthly Favorites on this blog to share things I have been loving each and every month!! These types of posts are my favorite to read because I always enjoy seeing what other people have been loving all month long (is that weird?).
In no particular order…

Favorite Makeup Item

This is MY FAVORITE lip product. It is a lip liner but I use it all over my lips on it’s own. This is what I wear 6 out of 7 days a week.  I have 10 of these, I kid you not! It is the best “my lips but better” shade for me. I think it is safe to say it is a universally flattering shade but if you are anywhere near my complexion ( Mac NC42; Mufe 153; Nars Syracuse, Giorgio Armani 7.5; L’Oreal Caramel Beige for reference), your life is incomplete without this-Trust me! Also, the price can’t be beat! 

L’Oreal Color Riche Le Matte Lipcolour Stick in the Shade She’s So Matte – $9.99 
Try saying that name 5 times real quick! This was also another item I found myself reaching for. It is matte but hydrating (bonus!) and the color is very flattering. It is a very natural pinky nude color and goes along with any outfit. The stick packaging makes it so easy to apply. Try it!!

Favorite TV Show 

I am finally caught up on this show and OH MY GOD!! What a well written season this was!! I spent the month of march catching up on this so it had to be included! Although the finale left me in tears ( with swollen eyes the next day), I am so excited for the next season! 

Favorite Skin Care Item

This thing is BOMB! My skin was wreaking havoc in the beginning of the month due to extreme change in weather conditions it was exposed to from my recent trip. It was 97-100 degrees in India and 30-40 degrees here in the States when I came back. Plus, the 19 hour flight left my skin super dry and I ended up breaking out. My skin was looking dull, congested and just yuck! This mask used 2x/week cleared my skin up! It’s looking much more alive, healthy and clean. 
I would have taken a picture of the one I have but I used it all up so did not have it on hand! 

Favorite Song

Not much to say here, I LOVE the beat and this has been on replay for sometime now. It gets me pumped.

Favorite Book 

This Little Book of Mindfulness was a birthday gift from two of my best friends and I love it!! I have been trying to practice Mindfulness for the past few months and this book was a perfect addition! It gives you 5-10 minutes of things to try each day so it is great if you think you don’t have a lot of time to practice Mindfulness. I am OBSESSED! 

Favorite Moment 

My baby cousins (not really babies anymore) are the center of my world! This month they were on spring break and I got to spend some quality time with them. We went on a day trip to Philadelphia ( my favorite city btw), watched Kung Fu Panda 3, and spent some time just relaxing at home . This was naturally my most favorite part of the past month!! 
Brunch @ Sabrina’s Cafe – Must visit if you are in Philly! 

Favorite Fashion Item 

This H&M Cargo Jacket  has been the most worn item this month! It is perfect to throw on, lightweight, looks great on, is comfortable and so on trend with the faux leather sleeves! The jacket is also something that can be used year round. 
Mine is at the Dry Cleaners currently! That is how much I have used this! 

Favorite Drink 

This Waiakea Volcanic Water is something my brother introduced me to and I LOVE it!! We get ours from Wawa. It is naturally enhanced with Minerals and Electrolytes. Every time I am  at Wawa, I have been grabbing this thing!
Well that’s it for this month! What were your favorites from this past month?! 
Until Next time..
