So Faybruary ended but I’m still feeling great and ready to take March by the horns. I’ve decided I am going to start doing the monthly favourites posts except they aren’t restricted to beauty. I will share my favourites in the categories skincare, body products, makeup, food and accessories. I love food and have really been enjoying sharing my cooking, baking and eating escapades on Instagram. It is further fuelled by my food insert on SA Bloggers website, my post this month is all about my Madame Zingara experience and you can read all about that here.
let’s dig in, my favourite product not just this month but this year, so far as far as skincare goes has to be my Vichy BB cream. The high SPF 50 rating and light feel of this is the reason it has been on my face every single day. I use it on regular no make up days (which is usually 6 days a week for me) and even before a jog or any other outdoor activity. Bloody fantastic I tell you.
The body product I have been enjoying in Feb is this Oh So Heavenly Himalayan Pink Salts body lotion. I just love the soft floral scent. Irina gifted me the Himalayan Pink Salts handbag essentials kit in my Xmas bandwagon box and I just loved the scent and feel so much I had to have the body lotion. Before I could even buy it, bam it was in my birthday gift loot :D. It is really light and has the mineral goodness of Himalayan pink salts. Also hot on my products list is Sorbet pump nail polish remover, just because it does the job well and the pump packaging is ultra convenient. Thank you for my first bottle Nicola and Irina for my second.
Makeup has been minimal all month, I love this Clarins Instant Light Complexion perfector so much. It’s the perfect no fuss pick me up for my face, no matter how I use it. It adds a beautiful glow and the pink hue blurs under eye darkenss provided it is minimal. I love me some highlighter and brightening products at the moment. Morgan Taylor polishes are my current favourites because they come in amazing shades and their glitter polishes are something to behold, you can see the Birthday nails I did using MT polish for an accent glitter nail here. Have you seen the Cinderella collection?!
I’ve also been very into red lips all of Feb, trying to go bolder with the colour. This Smooch stick from Rubybox in Red my Mind is a vibrant bright red and goes on so soft and smooth, the colour pay-off is amazing plus it stays putt and dries to a matte finish. Smashbox minis have gotten a lot of face time too, especially the Be Legendary Long-wear lip lacquer in Coral, which is a red toned rusty coral on me and the Full Exposure mascara does a good job of holding curl and adding volume to my lashes. And all my favourite makeup products are being housed in this gorgeous case Amy brought me back from Dubai, I’m crazy for the hot pink.
I have fallen back in love with eating oats. I went off it for a long time and didn’t even want to hear the word oats but we’re back together. I have eaten a different variation of oats for breakfast every single day in Feb. Some of my favourite oat combinations are Peanut Butter oats with honey and cinnamon, chocolate oats, apple cinnamon oats and peanut butter and jam oats. That’s the other thing, I am peanut butter obsessed. I will put crunchy peanut butter on just about anything.
Is this post becoming a discussion of things I’m currently obsessing over? Maybe. I’m okay with that. Midi rings. I mean I cannot get enough, I’ll take a ring on every finger, maybe two thanks. I have always loved wearing rings, they are without a doubt my favourite and most worn accessory. The gold and teal rings also seem to go with everything and pineapple everything obviously, so the pineapple ring from Mr P and pineapple earrings from Legit are serious favs. And then when you combine my ring love with the 90s flashback craze that is flash tattoos, perfection. I also got this beautiful infinity necklace from BFF Amy on my birthday and only take it off to shower and sleep.
Let’s see what new obsessions and favourites March brings! Do you share my love for anything above? Or something you think I will adore and simply have to try? let me know.
