March Favourites 2015
Where has March gone? No, seriously, where? This year is seriously flying by too quickly, it’s freaking me out!
OK, panic over. Let’s concentrate on my March favourites shall we?
The Body Shop Drops of Youth Serum £24 - I picked this up a while back at an in-store event, used it a few times then forgot about it. Since the start of the year I’ve been hell bent on using up what’s in my stash before buying new and eventually this little one found it’s way to the front of the drawer. I’ve been using it on my skin twice a day under my daytime and evening moisturiser and so far, so good. I’m not seeing huge results, maybe my skin is a little too young? It does however even out my skin tone a little and minimises my pores a touch. I’ll get to the bottom of the bottle and let you know!
Origins GinZing Revitalizing Mineral Make-Up £25 - I’ve been in the market for a new mineral foundation for some time now and after having a little play around with this one in-store moons ago, I went back and picked up a pot. I’m beyond impressed with this foundation. It evens skin tone, makes me look awake and refreshed, and blurs pores and imperfections.
L’Occitane Pivoine Flora Beauty Cream £27 - I picked this up at the outlet for £13. It’s amazing. It smells like spring, absorbs easily into the skin without leaving and greasy residue and my skin is visible softer and smoother looking. I had some dodgy dry patches on my elbows and this has cleared them right up too!
Jordans Porridge Oats - I usually always have porridge for breakfast, but it’s been a while since I tried a new brand other than Quaker Oats. Porridge is porridge really, it’s all about the toppings for me! Fruit, nuts, seeds, honey, even fudge makes it taste all the more amazing. The Jordans porridge makes for a really thick, not too creamy consistency which is just how I like it!
Cadburys Mini Eggs - Well, it is the season and all that! I love Mini Eggs, they’re my go-to treat for Easter, especially the really mini snack bags you can buy. They changed Cream Eggs too much for my liking so I’ll be doubling up on the Mini Eggs indulgence for at least a couple more weeks!
Nairns Oat Biscuits - Dark Chocolate - Light, crunchy and come in perfectly portioned little packets, what more can you ask for from an emergency biscuit? I always keep biscuits in my locker in work just incase I have to take an emergency tea break. Let’s face it, we’ve all been there, it’s late in the working day, the place is burning down all around you and you just need tea and biscuits, nothing else will put the fire out!
Trinity - Conn Iggulden - Second in the Wars of the Roses series, this has been my breakfast book for the last few weeks. I love historical fiction but usually, what I read is all about the ladies and the queens, the court drama, the romances and the scandals. Igguldens series focuses on the battles, the blood, the guts, the gore and the men. It’s a nice change and I’ve been really getting into it!
Map My Walk App (iPhone) - I used to go for walks on my lunch break. Then I stopped. In a bid to up my fitness game, I’ve started taking lunch time walks and I’ve been using this little app to track my walk, count my steps, how far I’ve gone and how many calories I’ve burnt. It’s great, it’s free and it does exactly what I need!
