My March Favourites

Well it’s been a while since I did a monthly favourites, so I thought I would revive this old gem of a topic 🙂

March for me was about saying goodbye to winter and a well over due welcome to lighter evenings and the first signs of Spring.
Additionally to this I have been loving some cosmetics from old school fav Barry M, my trusty Maybelline matte lipstick and a couple of Primark favs, their trainers and cosy sweaters!

I haven’t used Barry M cosmetics for a while. Not that I’m a make up snob just with so many brands on the market these days I can’t have them all 🙁 But I wanted to buy their eyeshadow pot (see further below) and in Superdrug it was buy one get one half price.
So after a quick swatch of these pretty shades I opted for this palette below. The shades are warm pinks and browns, hence the name of the palette Super Naturals. For the price they apply well and I really like the colour it eyes to my lids.

As mentioned above I originally planned on getting one of the eye shadow pots from Barry M. I used to use these a lot when I was in my teens and 20’s. And I what I continue to love is the shimmery-ness of the powder. I love this shade. They’ve called it Tan but I call it more pinky peach shade.
It’s super pretty.

Finally beauty wise I have been loving this month my Maybelline Vivid Matte Lipstick. This I have mentioned in a previous post, but it has been my go to lip product for March.
I love the colour (it’s shade 50) and the matte look on my lips. I prefer it to the NYX equivalent.

Fashion wise I’ve been loving these trainers from Primark. These were £12 and are the comfiest trainers I’ve ever owned! I’ve also a pair in pale pink, which I love too.
For the price they are a real bargain. They are so light weight and feel like wearing slippers. They are my day to day footwear for lazy days off.

Weekend Vibes sweater £5 from Primark. I’m sure I’m not the first or last person to purchase this bargain of a sweater. And I can see why. It’s so comfy, perfect for the weekend and I love the colour. My hair dresser said the colour suited me, so I’ll take that compliment!

I got it in size small and it is slightly oversized, so I like to team it with denim jeans and my Primark trainers. A chilled weekend look 🙂

Now Spring has arrived I love wearing a biker jacket. Alas I do not have any real leather jackets, but to be honest I love the faux leather ones on the high street just as much. The one I have been wearing throughout the most of March is this one I found below.
It’s from Topshop which was in the sale for £35 and it fits so well and I love the soft fur trim. I also love the buckle detail belt on the bottom. I have worn this every time I’ve been out as it is perfect for dressed down and dressed up looks.
I have massed 7 faux leather jackets now. But I think this will be my continued go to jacket for a while 🙂

Myself and hubby and one of my biker jackets (not too dissimilar to the one I brought recently above!)

And that is what I have been loving through out March. Oh and I have loved visiting London and staying at the Grosvenor Hotel and visiting the Glamour Beauty Festival.

This month is my birthday month and I’m looking forward to staying in Bournemouth for it. I love Bournemouth and you can see why on the link here.

I also plan a beauty giveaway in the run up to my birthday in the middle of the month so watch this space!

Love and hugs,

    I haven't used a Barry M Dazzle Dust for years!!! I'm sure I've still got a few in my drawer but not in very wearable colours! I bought one of the Primark sweatshirts last night, it was a turquoise one with a palm tree on. I can't believe it was only £5 as it's so soft and cosy xxRhi |

      Hi Rhi, I'm sure I used to wear more adventurous shades of Dazzle Dust too. Sometimes you gotta go back to what you know! I do love these sweatshirts. I already have a couple of other styles. The perfect lazy day top �� Thanks for reading ���� xx
