I'm back with my favorites from the month of March. I'm pretty excited about these, I found a lot of great products this month!
The first favorite from March is this Dr. Bronner's solid bar soap in the scent Almond. I took this pic for a haul that I never posted which is why I have the wrapped soap pic. I purchased it after hearing on YouTube that it was great for cleaning makeup brushes and beauty sponges so I decided to give it a try. I keep it in a plastic soap tray and it works perfectly.
This is after some use. You guys. You will never use anything else to clean your brushes after you try this. It works perfectly and the Almond scent that I chose is amazing! My beauty sponge ($3 knockoff of a beauty blender) looks brand new... which has never happened even after a thorough cleaning. I highly highly recommend this product and they have different scents like lavender, peppermint, rose, eucalyptus, tea tree, citrus orange and unscented. I got mine at a great price at Harmon Face Values (I'm pretty sure I paid $3.49) which is pretty much my favorite store ever for beauty supplies. I purchased the soap dish there too.
The next item that I have is 100% Pure Jojoba Oil which I purchased from Trader Joe's. I needed something to take off my makeup and after finding out that Coconut Oil is less than ideal because it clogs pores, I decided to try Jojoba Oil because it does not clog pores. This stuff is really amazing for taking off makeup. I like to soak a wash cloth in hot water, wring it out and press it on my face for a minute and this loosens up the mascara and eyeliner. Then I just put the oil on a cotton round and wipe it off and it really does work well. I highly recommend trying this if you are looking for an all natural makeup remover!
The next item was purchased from a store called Five Below where everything is $5 or less.
This is my new spring cell phone case! I'm kind of obsessed with it. It was $5 and I LOVE the floral pattern.
Here it is on my phone. It provides a lot of protection, doesn't feel cheap and the design is really nice. I'm so happy I found this case.
I have been obsessed with this haircut for the last week or so. I really want to get it but the only thing that holds me back is that I have had very bad luck when bringing in a photo of a short hair cut in the past and when they cut too much there is nothing I can do to make it better until it grows out. I'll probably end up doing it eventually but I need to talk myself into it.
I found this next favorite through a friend of mine and he is an artist named Oscar "Sketch" Navarro and his work is called The Art of Sketch. I really really love his work, and the piece above is definitely my favorite. I'm going to be purchasing some prints and probably a necklace once I can decide which ones I want! There are SO MANY that I love! This is definitely my aesthetic.
This may seem a little strange because I already LOVED Trader Joe's but stay with me here. Trader Joe's has become my main grocery store this month for many reason. First, you can't beat the prices. I walk out with a grocery bill that is an average of $30 less than my bill at Whole Foods. While the organic produce selection isn't as extensive as Whole Foods I've definitely been able to get by without missing anything. Beyond this, they have introduced some new, amazing products! I spotted a HUGE bag of organic, raw hemp seeds for $5.49. The equivalent at Whole Foods would probably run closer to $15. I also saw a huge bag of Chia Seeds with a comparable price comparison to Whole Foods. I have been really happy with my full grocery hauls from Trader Joe's and I'm happy to be fully converted :) I'll still go to Whole Foods every once in a while for specialty items but I'm a Trader Joe's girl now.
That's it for March. I hope you all enjoyed this post and that you are all doing well.
