So, as so many people shared the same love as me for the things in my February Favourites, I decided to continue and I’ve come up with more monthly faves! Here’s what I’ve been loving in March.
1. Goodnight Stories for Rebel Girls – 100 Tales of Extraordinary Women
I love everything about this book. It is so important to educate generations on the inspirational, brave and amazing women that have lived across the many years. I think it’s an amazing way of showcasing girl power and teaching both boys, girls, men and women about these ladies. I am proud to be a feminist. I am proud to be a young woman. These stories give just some of the reasons why men and women deserve to have equal rights as well as also highlighting the strength behind a woman’s mind. The stories are nice and short and illustrated beautifully while the cover is stunning, making it a perfect book to keep on through the years!
2. Funky Trousers
At the moment, I am all about having some brightly coloured trousers in my wardrobe. With what felt like the longest winter ever, having a bit of colour was definitely overdue! Currently, I have my striped pair, my orange pair and the red pair which I wore on Valentines Day. I also may, or may not (I absolutely did) have ordered another pair which are a gorgeous teal colour. It’s definitely something new for me to be wearing but I’ve learnt to really love experimenting with new looks! – That also explains why I cut my hair short and died it a deep purple. Again, loving new looks!
3. L’Oréal Paris Pure Clay Glow Mask
In my February favourites, I talked about how much I loved the Sand and Sky Australian Clay mask. Well, I’ve now found another one which I love just as much (if not, more!). L’Oréal have recently released a series of new clays which all target the skin in different ways. Now, with summer coming up, I’m really looking for a natural glow. This mask has 3 key ingredients to ensure that – kaolin, montmorillonite and ghassol. On the side of the packaging, it tells you that these ingredients help to eliminate imperfections, clarify complexion and absorb impurities, including excess sebum. It just needs putting on to a cleansed face, leaving to dry for 10 minutes and then rinse it off and I promise you, your skin will feel amazing; it will be softer, smoother and brighter and over time you will notice your pores feeling tighter. An absolute must have!
4. WHSmiths new ‘Bramble Wood’ range
Possibly the most adorable stationary range I have ever come across! People that know me are fully aware of my love for both hedgehogs and foxes so when I saw these, I had to get them! The little hedgie is a pencil case and I got the fox notepad. They had all sorts of things in the range including desk organisers and tidies, pens, rubbers, ring binders, water bottles… a lot! The other animals include badgers, owls – there’s so much choice and it’s all very, very cute.
5. Denim jackets
Again, linking back to trying out new looks and styles and items, denim jackets is another one! What I love most is that they can so easily be dressed up or down. This one is from new look and I was pleasantly surprised when I saw it on. I’m not sure I’ll ever be able to pull off the double denim look but who knows!
6. A Bloggers Journal
One for all my fellow blog writing friends and up and coming bloggers! I found this little gem in Paperchase and it’s such an essential. Planning can have such an impact on the quality of your writing and this is a great way to structure your plans. It’s also amazing for recording your traffic, noting down some of your favourite blogs and setting yourself goals and targets. It’s also great for noting down those little ideas you get that you want to come back to later!
7. Rebel Colouring for Girls – Motivating messages and marvellous mantras to colour and create
Two of the best things to support good wellbeing – colouring and positive quotes! These images are so intricate and delicate and create beautiful messages. They are perfect for spending some time to yourself and feeling uplifted. The best part is that they are not double sided, so if you’re really impressed with your masterpiece and want a reminder of the message, you can cut it out and frame it. I’m going to work on staying inside the lines first!!
8. Nip + Fab Repair – Bee Sting Fix Eye
So, one of the perks(?) of growing up is that life can get busy, especially in our twenties – you’re always learning new things and working hard and just being generally busy for what feels like all of the time. Naturally, we don’t have the skin we had when we were children and one of the things which stands out for me is having darker circles under my eyes. Now, I understand I probably need to get more sleep and drink less coffee etc etc but as I said, busy grown up. Nip + Fab’s eye cream is absolutely wonderful and is now part of my daily routine. It helps to really target dark circles around the eyes and makes me look much less of a zombie.
9. 30 Day Writing ChallengeI love the simplicity of these writing prompts. Often a simple writing prompt can be the one that generates the most vast ideas. This 30 day book can be a fantastic way to get over that dreaded writers block and write for the simple reason of your love of writing. They are so open that you have the freedom to take them anywhere your mind wants to, without the frustration of finding that starting point. A really nice book for some light exercises.
10. iPad Pro 12.9-inch
Definitely a treat to myself! My main reasoning behind getting a new iPad was that I really want to enhance my blogging, networking and creative spaces. I could very easily use my phone or my laptop, but I wanted something a bit more slick. It’s bright colours on the screen make it aesthetically pleasing and enhances the experience of ‘working’ because you’re enjoying the tools that you use. Also, you can get a free engraving so I thought why the hell not. Having such a bigger screen has completely renovated the way that I am blogging, watching and creating . Plus, when you work hard, it’s important to get yourself a good treat. Work hard play hard!
So, there we have it. 10 of my favourite things from the last month. I’d love to hear what you guys have all been loving or if you’ve tried any of the things in this post/my last favourites! Leave your comments below!
