March Favorites

Happy Monday everyone! I know I have slacked with my content last week, so I'm going to try my best to not slack anymore. March has flown by! I can't believe tomorrow is the first day of April, but before April 1st rolls around, I have to share my March favorites with you all!

1. UT Cowboy Boots
There's very few places you can catch me wearing cowboy boots. The main place I would wear my babies would be at a UT football game, but since I'm no longer in school and football season is over, I haven't had much need to pull these out until this month.

March is the month of the Houston Rodeo. Since I went twice, I was able to break out my cowboy boots! Words cannot describe how much I love those boots. They were worth every penny!

2. Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette
I have been using this thing constantly this month. I'm pretty sure this has been the only palette I've used in March.
The thing that I love most about the palette is that I can come up with multiple looks. I don't feel intimidated by the colors. Every color combo I have tried on my eyes has come out nice. With my Naked palette, I tend to stick with the same two eyeshadow looks. Maybe that's partly my fault, but nonetheless, I've loved using my Chocolate Bar this month.

3. Maybelline Color Tattoo in Caramel Cool
Although I got this in the middle of the month, I have been using this enough for it to be in my favorites. I only own one other Color Tattoo in Barely Branded, but I'm dying to buy more when I have money to spare.
From swatches online, I thought it would come out more vibrant, but because I'm darker in skin tone, it comes off more neutral. Regardless, it has been the perfect pairing with my Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette.

I will say that I cannot wear this alone or without a primer because it will crease like crazy on me, but as a base after my primer, it works like a charm.

4. E.L.F. Eyeshadow Brush
I received this brush in a Disney Villains Halloween Set back in October, but it took until this month to actually try it out. I am in love with this brush.

I am obsessed with it because you can easily pack eyeshadow onto your lid with it. The brush hairs are thin and compact. The other eyeshadow brush I own is much thicker and a lot fluffier. You can't pack the shadow on as effortlessly and I feel like you loose a lot of product in the brush. This brush is only a dollar. ONE DOLLAR. Need I say more?

5. Hard Candy Fox in a Box Blush in Skinny Dipping
This is a product I used to love back in the day and forgot all about it. I wore this blush a few times this month and I even received complements on it!

It's perfect to bust out for the spring and summer because it has a orange and bronze color. When you swirl them together it gives your cheeks a bright glow. It's gorgeous darling!
6. Music
I'll be honest, I only knew a few songs by The Band Perry before I went to the rodeo to see them in concert. When I saw them perform, I fell in love with them. They were amazing!

So the next day after the concert, I felt obligated to download their CD, Pioneer. My favorite songs of the album are listed below.

Chainsaw

DONE

Better Dig Two

Don't Let Me Be Lonely

Team by Lorde is my favorite song as of now. I love listening to it when I'm driving. It makes me feel so carefree! Whenever it comes on, I BLAST IT!

Team

Hey Girl by Billy Currington is another song I have been loving for the past couple of months. Although Billy Currington makes me think of my ex-boyfriend because he was the one to introduce me to his music, I can't help myself from loving this song. I also blast this song whenever it comes on.


So that's it for my favorites for this month. What are some of the things you have loved this March?

Love and desserts,

  1. Since I rarely listen to the radio, I'm sometimes out of the loop on the latest music -- so thanks for this roundup!

    That chocolate bar looks great! I just got my SIL a Naked palette for her birthday, I guess I need to jump on the bandwagon with these bigger eye shadow palettes.

    Thanks for linking up with Lovely Thursdays!

    1. I have a love/hate relationship with the radio. I love that I can listen to new music, but I hate commercials. haha

      Thank you! :) It really is a great palette! I'm sure she'll love her Naked palette. I do want to get the second and third one though! I promise you'll love any bigger eyeshadow palette! :)

      I love Lovely Thursdays! Thank you for visiting my blog!

  3. I'm in the UK and Maybelline are so behind in launching new colour tattoo shades I don't think they're realeasing many of the colours over here which is so annoying as I see all these lovely shades on beauty blogs- i guess there's ebay tho. Happily surprised to hear good things from the Too Faced chocolate palette- i love too faced but don't find them doing matte shades very well unlike urban decay . take care Nikki x

    1. So sorry that the UK is behind on getting the Maybelline goodies. I would be so upset! I'm sure if there's a color you really like, you can find it on Ebay. I love Ebay for getting limited edition products, as long as the price is reasonable. The Too Faced palette is really good. I have a few matte shades in there that I absolutely love and use on a daily, but I do like Urban Decay, as well! haha
