March 2016 Beauty & Lifestyle Favourites

Another month has, yet again, come and gone. I can't even begin to understand how quick March seemed to fly by. Today I am excited to share some rediscovered beauty favourites, along with a couple of TV shows, a tasty treat and new gym apparel. I hope you enjoy!

Beauty Favourites:
The Body Shop Radiant Highlighter
I generally gravitate to this product more during spring and summer, and lately I've loved using it as a base under my makeup. I'll combine a generous squeeze with my moisturizer and work it into my skin until completely absorbed. I love how healthy and glow-y my skin looks! It's a pink iridescent with light-reflecting particles that seem to eliminate years (fine lines and wrinkles). I'll even wear it alone on minimal makeup days to kick up my complexion. It's lightweight, non-greasy formula feels natural on the skin and doesn't make me breakout.  


C.O. Bigelow Rose Salve
I misplaced my beloved Bite Beauty Agave Lip Mask a little while ago and turned to this all-purpose balm for moisturizing my lips at night. It does contain petroleum, which is an ingredient I try to avoid, but I really enjoy the slick consistency and soothing rose-extract. I also use it on my cuticles or even my nose, which seems to protest Kleenex every time I have a cold.


Dove REFRESH+CARE Invigorating Dry Shampoo
I went through several bottles of this dry shampoo when it first hit the shelves a few years ago. Unfortunately, much quicker than expected due to a packaging glitch (or bad luck). After just two or three uses the can would seem empty or lacking aerosol. It was quite frustrating and deterred me from wasting money on the product again. However, I had a change of heart recently and decided to give it one more shot. Needless to say, our relationship is back on and it is LOVE. The mist is super fine, it doesn't leave a white-cast in my hair and the smell is absolutely beautiful. Plus, after 8-9 uses the product/packaging is still going strong. We're headed in the right direction of a long and prosperous bond. 



Lifestyle Favourites:
Hungry Buddha Siracha Coconut Chips
Who would have thought coconut chips and siracha would go together? Not me! But it's magical! I love the combination of sweet and saltiness with kicks of spice. These little snacks pack powerful flavour and have quickly become a new favourite of mine.


Fuller House on Netflix
I originally wasn't going to include Fuller House as a favourite this month, because I binge watched nearly the entire season during the last couple of days in February. However, I shamelessly re-watched most of the episodes throughout March and I'm still not sick of the show. It's super cheesy and the acting is pretty bad, but for some reason the corny jokes make me laugh. I can't wait for season two!

Vikings
There aren't many shows Dev and I watch together, aside from Game of Thrones, which is probably our favourite. But when the fourth season of Vikings premiered a couple of months ago, Dev convinced me to watch it along with him and now I'm hooked! It's full of mystery, drama, epic battles and twists that make my jaw drop.

Old Navy Workout Gear
With 'bikini season' around the corner I have been pretty gung-ho when it comes to working out. But sometimes I need a little motivation and buying new workout gear seems to do the trick. I recently purchased these royal blue patterned, high-waisted leggings and they are pretty comparable to more luxurious ones I own. I also love this oversized black t-shirt with key-hole back, which makes me feel a little more fashionable when sweating my balls off. The best part...this entire outfit cost me less than $30!


Do we have any favourites in common? What are some things you loved during the month of March?
