Monthly Faves: March

March, my how you flew by! Here we are at April 1st...where is the time going? For the record, I think I say that at the beginning of every month because time really is flying! I loved March for so many reasons but more importantly for the lessons that were learned. Some of the days were hard- a few of the longest days of my life, but also surrounded by some of the best days too. I was astounded by the Lord's faithfulness and the comfort He provided. A culmination of a year's worth of prayers and closure.  I know that's super vague, but if I get the courage one day to share on the big 'ole internet, I'll let ya know :) 

Let's see..what happened in March...
  • Spring Break ...a whole week spent at home. glorious (although a warm sandy beach sounded fabulous too!)
  • Tons of family time- you know the kind where your cheeks hurt from smiling too much and belly hurts from laughing too hard. the best kind.
  • Attended too many happy hours at Primanti's... I mean, it's kinda hard to pass up 1/2 price drinks...especially when 3 rum and cokes cost $5... yeah, that's my kinda price :) #brokecollegekid
  • Down to a smaller size in pants & (some) shirts! (!!!!) More on my weight loss journey later! 
  • Began reading Cold Tangerines --I can't even. I love this book like a whole lot. The honesty is unreal. Why I never read this sooner I'll never know. But what I do know is that I don't want the book to end! 

Now on to my favorites! I don't consider myself to know anything about makeup, I mean really. Until, this month. Cue Ulta + double points during your birthday month! This girl upgraded her makeup a heck of a lot! It was beyond necessary. 

Tarte Park Ave Princess + Slenderizer brush: I was in desperate need for a contour palette and went with the one above. For the most part, I love it- just have to better myself in learning to contour ;) 

Urban Decay Naked3: Pretty sure I was the last girl to ever own a Naked palette and it's pretty much everything people talk it up to be. 

Benefit POREfessional: Honestly, I'm not sure how I feel about this product. It's supposed to fill in your pores...but I don't think my pores are huge to begin with (haha) so I can't say I've noticed a huge difference :) Jury's still out. 

Benefit POREfessional Agent Zero Shine: Jury is also out on this one too. Anyone love it/hate it?

Benefit Stay Don't Stray: In need of a great eye primer? This does the job perfectly! Can't say enough good things!! My eye makeup has never stayed- until this baby came along! 

Naked nourishing lipgloss in lovechild: I don't think I've ever loved a lip gloss so much in my life. Adding more colors to my collection is a must 

Benefit Roller Lash: Giving this mascara 5 stars. Never in my life have my lashes looked better

Oribe Royal Blowout: While getting my hair done earlier this month, my girl, Rebecca suggested I try this product for heat protection while blowdrying. It has yet to disappoint. It's a spray, so it's light and doesn't weigh down your hair- which is a major plus for my fine locks!

IT Velvet Luxe Foundation Brush: After having my old foundation brush for far too long I knew it was time to replace. I chose the one and haven't looked back! Personally, I hate the feel of having a lot of makeup on, this brush gives a light airbrush feel. Highly recommended! 

What was your favorite thing about March? Looking forward to anything in April?

Linking up with Kelli and Mia for this month's favorites :)


  1. I've been reaching for my Naked3 palette a lot lately, love it. I seriously have to try that Benefit mascara!

  2. I haven't heard toooo much about that lipgloss, but you're totally selling me on checking it out! I've been on a lipgloss kick lately. I have that Tarte palette and love it as well! It was such an amazing value and I love all three of the products.

  3. Way to go on the weight loss accomplishments!!! That's so exciting! :) I got a deluxe sample of both Benefit's POREfessional and Roller Lash mascara in my March Popsugar Must Have box. I have yet to try the POREfessional, but I am loving the roller lash mascara!!! Isn't it great?! :) I enjoyed reading through your faves, Kate! You always manage to share something I haven't heard about, like the Royal Blowout spray -- sounds great! Hope your April gets off to a lovely start! xo

  4. The naked palettes are my favorite! You have some great benefit products in there - have you tried their mascara!? My ultimate favorite!


Thanks so much for stopping by! I love hearing from every single one of you! xoxo
