March Favorites + Monthly Wrap Up!

Am I the only one who thinks that March just flew by? The end of this month was pretty exciting and really sneaked up on me! It was my husbands 30th birthday, my 3rd year of employment within the same company and it was also Good Friday! (all on the 29th!) 

Aside from that, I have some really exciting March favorites. I got the chance to purchase some new things and had an overall very lucky streak with new products! I had absolutely planned on making a video for the March favorites, but I haven't built up the courage to do it yet. Anyways, let's get started on my March favorites!

I'll start with beauty, since it is the largest category. 

Neutrogena Pore Refining Toner - I talked about using witch hazel in a previous post but decided to switch to this toner and I am loving it! I have been using it for almost a month and am seeing a slight size difference in my pores problem areas! Give it a try, especially if you already love the Neutrogena line like me!

Covergirl "Lip Perfection" Jumbo Lip Balm (#215 Watermelon Twist) I love this lip product! I don't like gloss because it's always too sticky and i find that most lipsticks dry out my habitually chapped lips. I picked this up because I saw it on a YouTube video and am SO glad that I did! It's hydrating, without being sticky and has great color payoff! 

Some other things I'm loving are the Revlon Photoready Color Correcting Primer, Masque Bar: Pore Refining Mask, Colgate Optic White Wisp and the Urban Decay Primer Potion in Greed. (Which I got for $10!)

I'm sure you're not surprised by my hair favorites. I reviewed the John Frieda Full Repair Deep Conditioner and Style Revival Styling Spray  in this previous post and couldn't forget to include them since I raved about them so much! 

Even though I chopped off all of my hair, I still use them on a regular basis! 

My two favorite polishes have been the Essie "Turquoise & Caicos"  and the Sally Hansen "Mint Sorbet".

I picked up the Studio 35 Beauty Nail Wraps in "Confetti" (Walgreens) on sale and they have a really great life on the nail. Mine lasted for 7 days! I've also been using the Sally Hansen: Nail Hardener and the Nutra Nail's Cuticle Remover.

I also wanted to share some of my more delicious March finds with you all! 

My Wal-Mart finally started carrying more than one Snapple flavor! I have been obsessed with the raspberry tea and buying it all up for fear they will stop selling it! I can't be the only one who does that, right?

I've also started liking the Naked brand juices but my absolute favorite is the "Green Machine", looks strange, tastes amazing!

Time for fun! 

I upgraded my phone to the Samsung Galaxy SIII and I have been so happy that I did! I almost went with the Note2 but it was a tad to large for a phone, for my taste!

An app i've been obsessed with is the Zen Pinball HD. The graphics are so beautiful and there are a lot of really great tables at reasonable prices! The app is free and comes with 1 free table already!

Favorite YouTuber: grav3yardgirl - Bunny! She is hysterical and unconventional, which is why I love her! She also lives in Texas like myself! Her style is very unique and she doesn't hold her personality back. If you don't already know and love her, visit her youtube, subscribe and give an alligator its wings!!

If you've made it this far, great job! I usually give you all a quick recap of my Month but this time I thought i'd just show it to you in photos! Enjoy!

Got a haircut!
Got The Sims3: Season (finally!)
Played Putt-Putt!
Went to the South Texas State Fair!
Had the Krispy Kreme Donut Burger at the fair! (yum-o)
Found some amazing organic patchouli soap! (happy inner-hippie!)
