Favorite Favorites, March 2016

Hello, my favorite favorite blog readers (see what I did there?)!

Today, we’re talking about my March favorites. How are we a fourth of the way done with 2016?

Trader Joe's dried baby bananas

Favorite Treat: I started my Whole30 program on Sunday this week (you can read more about the program here), but I had been prepping for it for most of March and stumbled on this new treat from Trader Joe’s. Semi-dried baby bananas that have no added ingredients and are super sweet and delicious on their own! Full disclosure: if you don’t like bananas…you will not like these! But if you do, grab a bag the next time you’re in Trader Joe’s!

*Scarf accent is from the Who What Wear collection from Target (here).

Favorite Nail Polish Color: Scarlet Starlet from Sally Hansen Miracle Gel (here). I’m obsessed. I think it looks pink online and pink in the bottle, but on my nails, it’s a great shade of unexpected red orange!

Favorite Clothing Item: I’m head over heels for my new red blazer from The Limited (here). It’s such a great statement piece in a classic shape that it works with dress/skirts for the office and just as well with jeans for the weekend. It also comes in yellow and green if those are more of your colors, and you better believe if they come out with a cobalt blue one, that I’d be all over that! Hint, hint, The Limited! ;)

L'Oreal Boost It Air-Whipped Densifying Foam

Favorite Hair Product: L’Oreal Boost It Air-Whipped Densifying Foam. Ummm, you guys… How have I been doing my hair without this for this long? It has boosted my volume AND calmed 90% of my stray frizzes, which I didn’t even know was possible to do while dealing with Indiana weather! Highly recommend this mousse/foam!

Favorite Shoes: I was scrolling through Nordstrom’s shoe page the other day and found this gorgeous perforated mules, clicked on them, and was SHOCKED when I learned that they were TOMS shoes! They look nothing like the TOMS shoes I know! But totally on trend, and helping others? Yes, please!

Biore Baking Soda Pore Cleanser

Favorite Beauty Product: I love and am super loyal to the Biore brand, because growing up, my mom and I always did the pore strips (here if you don’t know what I’m talking about)…meaning that I occasionally stole one from her bathroom drawer (thanks Schmom!). So it doesn’t take much for me to pick up one of their products, because I know they work! I have combination skin (I think), and I love this fairly simple, but effective Biore Baking Soda Pore Cleanser (here). Does the trick!

Favorite New Show: How to Get Away With Murder on Netflix. I’ve been watching it every now and then, when The Husband is busy playing his nerd computer games. I love it so far, but no spoilers, please, as I’m only on Episode 7 of Season 1!

The Husband and I have also been watching Daredevil on Netflix…but the second season is so intense, guys! I’m constantly hiding my head behind The Husband’s back to avoid seeing all the gore! Has anyone else seen either one of these shows?

Spindrift's Pink Grapefruit Seltzer and Raspberry Lime Seltzer

Favorite Drink: Spindrift’s Pink Grapefruit Seltzer and Raspberry Lime Seltzer (which I found at Trader Joe’s, but you can apparently find at Target). I promise this post is not sponsored by or all about Trader Joe’s! I just have been trying a lot of things there. This seltzer water is just carbonated water and fruit juice/pulp. They’re both super refreshing and just a little bit tart! I’m still loving all the LaCroixs (minus the stupid coconut one…blech), but these guys are a nice change up!

Favorite Cute (basically something that I think is cute): Just when the Internet couldn’t get any cuter…this pit bull pup named Pattycakes (seriously) just adopted these two ducklings. The snuggles at the end, you guys! Insert all the “awwwws” here.

*Though…I’m not sure if any of the foods they eat are good for dogs or ducks….

Favorite OutfitSurprisingly, it was this one (here)where I basically talk about wearing my favorite pieces over and over again. As one of you mentioned, “If it ain’t broke…don’t fix it!” Sometimes you just got to wear what you like and what works!

Be sure to leave your monthly favorite favorites in the comments! I’d love to hear about them!

ps. None of this is sponsored, and all of the favorite products reviewed were purchased by me (or me and The Husband when I slip them into the grocery cart)! ;)

    I started Whole30 on Monday as well! So glad I’m not going to be the only one figuring it out this month :) So far (day 3 so what do I know, really?!) it’s pretty great…
