March favourites

March favourites

Sorry for the lack of posts this week, I seem to have one week where I’ll post every single day and then a week where I’ll only post like twice – not very consistent I know. However, I am here, and I’m doing another favourite because who doesn’t love a favourites? You can find my February favourites here if you like, to see what I was loving last month. I actually can’t believe it is already April. It was only December two seconds ago I swear. 2017 is flying by already! But rambling over, these are my March favourites…

spongesFirstly, I’ve been really loving these new make-up sponges I got sent. I was sent these from Basic Beauty Tools, and they’re anything but basic. They sell these little make-up sponges, which can be used wet or dry and come with this genius little stand to hold your sponge and keep it clean. It’s especially great if you use your sponges wet, because it is somewhere for it to dry hygienically. It’s a really great idea and the sponges are great quality – they literally double in size when you use them wet. Also, as you can see, the flat side and pointy tip makes them great for precision. You can really get into the corners of your eyes and around your nose. I love the way that they make my make-up look, it always looks smooth and flawless. You can check out their site here, and if you fancy grabbing yourself one you can use the discount code EMMA15 for 15% of until April 30th – how can you say no?

In other news, I’ve also been loving Tesco plants. Recently, Tesco have started succulents socks and succulentsand cacti (which we know I’m a big lover of) and not only that, but they come in gorgeous pots. I’ve already got a couple of cacti from there and a couple of rainforest-type plants in these amazing pots. They’re all such good prices and you just wouldn’t think to get plants from Tesco but I mean, aren’t they lovely? I might go check out some more supermarkets soon and see if they’re as good.

The Sky is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson, oh my lord. Before you stop, don’t worry this will be spoiler free. I’m just going to say that if you’ve read I’ll Give You the Sun then you will absolutely love this too. It’s such a sad but beautiful story. If you’re a teenager or in your early 20s then you’re definitely a lot more likely to love this book. I got through the whole book in just over 24 hours, I couldn’t put it down. It’s a pretty unique plot and I really liked it. I realise this has been a terrible review, but I really don’t want to give the plot and the ending away as it’s just so bloody good!

tanya burr lippieI’ve also been seriously loving the Tanya Burr lipsticks. I recently mentioned in my Make-up Haul that I’d bought Pink Cocoa and since then I’ve bought Bigg Kiss and Birthday Cake, which are such gorgeous shades. I’m obsessed with how moisturising and soft they feel, they’re more like a lip balm. Not to mention the fact that they literally last all day.

Lastly, I’ve recently been coming home from work at half five and getting straight into some really comfy clothes. My favourite comfy item of clothing is currently my Victoria’s Secret yoga pants. They’re really thick and warm, but at the same time so stretchy. I love wearing them with an oversized top or jumper. They’re just my favourite at the moment. If it was socially acceptable to wear them 24/7 then I probably would because they are pure comfort. I bought mine back in January, so they no-longer have my exact pair, but you should definitely check the site out and if you haven’t already, get yourself some. I admit they’re a little on the pricey side for a pair of leggings, but they’re such good quality, they’re worth investing in.

Those are the five things that I’ve been really loving this month – I mean I’ve been loving a hell of a lot of things but these are the five things that I’ve narrowed it down to. What have you been loving this month? Let me know in the comments. Also let me know if you’ve been loving any of the same things as me, or have any recommendations for things I might like to include in my April favourites.

      It’s definitely worth a read, especially if you’ve read I’ll Give You the Sun and enjoyed that. They’re both such great books! I love Jandy Nelson. x

      I know, that’s the best thing – they’re really difficult to kill. Even I can keep them alive! You should definitely give them a go, they’re gorgeous x

    I’ve always wanted to try Tanya Burr products, I always see people posting about her lip line and it makes me so eager! I don’t even really know where they sell them….can I find them at Sephora? Ulta? maybe online lol

    xo, JJ

      You definitely should! I’d not tried them until about a month ago, because I actually didn’t have very high hopes for them. But they’re honestly really good! I’m honestly not sure where would sell them 🙁 In England they’re available in Drugstores. Maybe if you check out Tanya’s website it’ll tell you? I’m sure they’re available online somewhere though! Let me know if you manage to get hold of any!x
