March is a crazy month in our house, it’s a long month but it’s also so busy with celebrations that it seems to lie past. I can’t believe March is over but it also seems so long ago that I was celebrating my 30th birthday and our good friends tied the knot.
It’s been super hard to choose my March favourites because I had so many amazing gifts from my birthday that I could be here all day so I’ve tried really hard to find things beyond my birthday that I’m grateful for this month:
My 30th birthday
Of course this has to feature in my favourite things about March because hey, it’s my birthday but also because it was special one this year and I was able to celebrate will all my favourite people and was so spoilt. All of my gifts were wonderful, I did a whole blog post about them if you want to check it out here.
This wasn’t a birthday gift although it arrived on my birthday so it sort of felt like one. This bracelet is so beautiful, hand made and engraved with the word Mama and a small heart, it’s delicate enough to wear everyday and I have done so since the day it arrived.
Our new kitchen
Over the last two weeks we’ve been in a bit of upheaval whilst having our brand new kitchen fitted. The process was stressful and being without a kitchen for a week was awful but I hated our old kitchen so much that I just kept telling myself it would be worth it in the long run.
I wasn’t disappointed and our new kitchen is everything I wanted it to be, I’m actually starting to enjoy cooking and spending time in there which is a first for this house.
Last year I bought myself a simple disc necklace engraved with an A, I wore it every single day until Amelia accidentally snapped it. I was gutted at first but then the shopaholic in me reminded me it was a chance to buy a new one, a nicer one.
So that’s what I did, I bought a new engraved disc necklace, on the front is a simple A and on the back is engraved ‘my love’ and I love it so much. It’s beautiful, shiny, fits perfectly and you will find it permanently around my neck keeping my little girl close at all times.
I’ve discovered a new favourite beauty product this month, EOS lip balms. I’ve seen them on social media before but never found them in stores, until our local Tesco had a couple of the range available and I decided to give it a try.
I bought the coconut milk one to start with and it’s amazing, it smells and tastes like coconut and makes your lips feel so soft. Just the other day I bought another one; strawberry sorbet and it tastes like strawberry laces which now makes it my favourite flavour so far. Love love love!
M&S cat succulent
Okay, who doesn’t love a plat pot in the shape of a cat. I mean I couldn’t resist this little thing when I popped out to get lunch at work. I love everything about it; the colours, the cat face, the fact it’s really hard to kill a succulent. Unfortunately this little guy isn’t on the M&S website anymore but they might still sell them in store.
My favourite go to everyday scents are from Zara these days, I think they smell amazing, they last for ages and at £5.99 a bottle they’re perfect for everyday wear and for work.
I’ve recently bought two new scents; white jasmine and gardenia; beautiful scents and super cute bottles too.
I’ve mentioned in a recent post how much I was struggling with Amelia’s curls. How they were getting knotted and frizzy and almost impossible to comb. Upon recommendation I bought some Cantu products from Boots and have been using them on her for a couple of weeks now. They have made such a difference it’s unbelievable and I’m so glad I reached out for help online as there were so many people who responded with help and recommendations.

Those are some of my favourite things from March; April is set to be a quieter month in terms of celebrations but that’s not a bad thing. It’s a month to rest and recharge our batteries. A month to try some new meal ideas in our new kitchen and to not do any more DIY which I’m very pleased about.
