March Favourites & Update

How quickly did March pass by? Doesn't seem 2 minutes since it was February! It's all flying by too quickly!! 

So March? I finished my employment with my former company, which I feel great about. It's a tough decision deciding whether to go back to work after maternity leave, weighing up childcare fees and monthly in goings and out goings. Luckily, James is on a good enough wage to allow me to stay home, and I've been lucky enough to start an amazing new job, working from home which I'm really enjoying!
The work is almost done on our new home, so James has been decorating the rooms that are ready. Won't be long before we're in, finally! :)
Bradley got his 1st choice secondary school which is great news, I'm not so sure he's ready to go to high school yet though, he's got a lot of growing up to do!! 

Anyway, onto my Favourites of March...


Skincare Product of the Month...
I've raved about this lots before but it's just amazing stuff - Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant (£41.75) is a gentle face wash / exfoliater which keeps my skin looking and feeling fresh and clean. I really notice a difference in my skin if I don't use it for a while.

Haircare Product of the Month...
I really love Loreal Elvive Extraordinary Oil (£9.99/Superdrug), it really does make my hair feel soft and shiny after blowdrying. It's really light and not at all greasy. You may've read before how I'm a little obsessed with hair oils, and I think this one is probably the best one I've used so far.

MakeUp Product of the Month...
You may've read my previous post about a little Topshop Beauty Haul I had recently. Well I've been loving the Topshop Brow Fixer (£7.00) for super quick brows. The wax sets my brows in place perfectly and the pencil is the perfect shade to fill in my gaps and define the shape of my brows. 

Bath/Body Product of the Month...
You can't beat the 'original pink' Soap & Glory products. The scent is unbeatable, and using their The Righteous Butter (£10.50/Boots) never gets old. It's just gorgeous!

Fragrance of the Month...
I love my Ted Baker Sweet Treats Purse Sprays, they've been my favourite go to perfumes for a long time now. And I've been using Polly (£15.00/Boots) a lot this month as it's almost empty. I have a sweet tooth and LOVE the smell of this, it's just so yummy!

Baby Product of the Month...
We received some new Munchkin White Hot Safety Spoons (£2.99/Tesco) in the most recent SassyBloom box and they're just great. The coloured spoon tips turn white if the food is too hot, which is a great idea.

Read of the Month...
Bradley and I are currently reading The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole by Sue Townsend, after we went to see the theatre play. 

TV of the Month...
It has to be the new series of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, I'm slightly obsessed!!

Film of the Month...
James, Bradley and I sat down to watch The Hunger Games: The Mocking Jay Part 1 this weekend, I'm already looking forward to Part 2.

How was your March?
