Another month down and a whole year since Lockdown began. This month I binge watched a lot of television, pared back my makeup to the bare essentials and ate a whole lot of almond chocolate. Take a peek at my 6 favourites for the month of March.
The Circle and Celebrity Circle for Stand Up to Cancer.
I have been using a combination of Foxy and W.O.S on my lid and Naked 2 through my brows to add both colour and definition. Faint is a really handy shade for adding depth or as a soft liner. Venus is a subtle highlight but also swept over the lower, it instantly brightens the eyes. It is such a shame that Naked Basics has been discontinued but Naked Basics 2 is a close match.
M&Ms Chocolate Bars.
Despite usually being firmly on Team Cadburys, I have made a space for these in the cupboard. I first discovered them through a selection of M&Ms treats that were sent through from Influenster and have repurchased them quite a few times since – our current favourites are the original Chocolate and the Almond. Being manufactured by Mars, the chocolate itself is (I presume) Galaxy and the mini chocolate M&Ms and chopped almonds just make it that bit better. The almond seems to be out of stock everywhere at the moment but they are usually about £1.35 on Amazon and £2/2 for £3 at Asda.
One of my favourite Spring flowers are daffodils and not only are they blooming in abundance along the paths and parkways, but you can also pick up a bunch with your weekly shop for just £1. I have been using a small glass milk bottle to display them on the windowsill – I think I originally bought them to serve cocktails in but they are an ideal size for small bunches or posies of flowers, I think that Sweet Peas especially would look brilliant.
I still have my traditional diary – I would be lost without it but last year, after wasting half of my diary with zero plans in lockdown, I picked up an undated monthly diary whilst shopping in Typo. I tried to find this years edition online but it may be one that they have in store, its the Small Undated Monthly Planner and was a bargain at £3.50. I don’t use it for my day to day appointments, birthdays and tasks but instead I use it for my slightly longer term goals and to do lists. I have a tracker for my Depop sales so I can see how much (less fees and costs) that I have made from decluttering my makeup kit and wardrobe. I have a page of working blog ideas, some blogging goals that I set for this year and overall, birthday ideas that I note down throughout the year for Rosie and a rolling house renovations to do list.
