March Favorites!

First of all, I cannot believe March is almost over and that I basically have ONE more month of college left (omg crying)! This month has been so much fun; I'm sad it's coming to an end, but April is going to be just as exciting! Here are few things I've been loving in March:


1. Tarte Shape Tape Matte Foundation: This foundation has quickly become one of my absolute favorites--and that says a lot coming from a total foundation junkie like myself. Aside from all the controversy surrounding this foundation and the lack of varying shades, it really is a great foundation. I love a good, true matte foundation and in my opinion, this one lives up to its name. It is a buildable full coverage foundation that actually feels light and airy on the skin. I've tried so many full coverage foundations that are extremely thick and sticky on my face, so Shape Tape was a nice breathe of fresh air. 

2. S'well Milky Way Water Bottle: Wherever I go, I always carry a water bottle with me. This one is so nice because it's HUGE. I got the 25 oz. size so that I don't have to fill it up as much throughout the day. It keeps my water cold for hours and the large size helps me be sure to drink way more water each day. Mine is this really pretty holographic silver color from the Galaxy collection, but they have almost any color you could want. 

3. Two Chain Apple Watch Band: I absolutely LOVE my Apple watch, but the silicone band it comes with just did not match with all of my nicer outfits. I went on Amazon to look for cuter bands and found this one! I absolutely love it because it's very easy to clasp everyday and it looks so nice. I get compliments on it almost every time I wear it out. It comes in a few different colors and it's super easy to adjust to different wrist sizes. 

4. Chesapeake Bay Balance + Harmony Candle: I picked this candle up from Target not too long ago (you can also get it from Amazon) and I cannot stop burning it. I was not expecting to love a Target candle as much as I love my Bath & Body Works candles, but I really do. And come on, you cannot beat the $9.00 price tag compared to almost $30.00 for a BBW one. It is so refreshing and I feel like it truly does help me relax when it's burning. The scent for the Balance + Harmony candle is "water lily pear" and it is to die for. 

5. Express Star Sweater: Okay, this is the cutest sweater I have seen in a long time. It's oversized, light pink, and has subtle little stars all over it, how adorable is that? On top of the basic appearance of the sweater, it is so soft & comfy and it could be worn several different ways. Pair it with some jeans and booties for a casual look or throw it on with a white denim skirt to make it a little trendier. Either way, it makes your outfit instantly more stylish. (P.S.-it's on sale right now for only $36 so go grab it!)

6. Too Faced Chocolate Gold Bronzer: I basically use this bronzer every single day and it does not get old. My skin tone is medium/tan and this shade is perfect for me. It has a little bit of shimmer in it, which is great if you want to just add a subtle bronzy glow to your look. Although it has some shimmer, it doesn't leave your skin with a rough looking texture, which is super important. 

7. Real Techniques Blend + Blur Foundation Brush: This type of oval makeup brush has been all the rage over the past few months, so I wanted to try out an affordable option. I found this one and I was really surprised to find that I actually loved it. It applies my foundation effortlessly and the brush hairs feel so nice on my face. I thought it'd be awkward to use because of the handle, but it's really not. I absolutely love using it for my foundation. 

8. Kiehl's Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution: Recently I have noticed that my skin has a lot of darker spots, most likely from being in the sun fairly often throughout my life. I decided to try out this dark spot corrector and I swear within a FEW DAYS my skin was looking brighter and more even. I put this on at night before my moisturizer and when I wake up I feel like my skin looks so much better. I know that sounds crazy, but I've never noticeably recognized a difference in my skin this fast with any product. 

9. Aldo Brown Ankle Booties: I have been wearing these booties with everything lately. They go with just about everything and they're incredibly comfortable, too. The stretchy fabric on the side of the bootie allows you to just slip them on, which is super convenient. And they're also on sale right now for only $65!

10. Amika Brooklyn Bombshell Blowout Spray: I have tried a lot of blowout sprays, but nothing works as good as this one. I spray it on my roots when I get out of the shower and then blow dry my hair using a large round hairbrush. Once I'm finished my hair looks so much more voluminous, I absolutely love it!

11. Apple Watch Charging Stand: If you have an Apple Watch, this product is a necessity. Basically you put your charger in the little hole of the stand and your watch just sits on top nicely without falling all over the place. This is so much more convenient than trying to prop your watch up on the charger on a flat surface. It's only $10, too, so why not?

12. Zella Live In High Waist Legging: Being a college student, I probably wear leggings 5 out of the 7 days of the week. With that being said, I want my leggings to last for a long time and not fall apart within 3 weeks. These are some of the greatest, most affordable leggings I've found. They are sturdy and comfortable and the high waist is great for pairing with slightly shorter tops.
