Month in Review | March 2017

Hello everyone! Instead of doing a Monthly Favorites post, I want to start doing a “Month in Review” – that way I can talk about my life a bit more. So let’s dive in!

cc310753-8975-4635-b7c8-68f0c907e21bMarch has actually been a really exciting month for me. After months of searching and applying, I finally got a new job (yay!) which I am very excited about! My first day was actually today, and I think the job and company are going to be a really great fit for me!

Beauty wise, I haven’t really been wearing much makeup honestly. My focus the past few weeks has been on nailing down a consistent morning & night skin care routine and trying to let my skin breathe a bit more. I bought a ton of new skin care products after Christmas and I think I may have over done it a bit (oops..), so now I am trying to take a step back and figure out what is/isn’t working. I’m hoping that by keeping a consistent routine the next few months I will start to see some results. I am going to do post soon on my new routine so stay tuned!

While I focus on my skin, my day-to-day  makeup routine has mainly just been my brows, mascara, and concealer. For the days where I want to look a *bit* more pulled together I will put on my Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer or use my Neutrogena foundation (review) and then add a lip color. I have also started using my ColourPop highlighter on the regular for my inner corners. It is a bit to showy of a highlight (for me) to use on my cheeks, but by adding a bit to my inner corners it really helps my eyes look more awake.


In the non-beauty world, I have been *obsessed* with Big Little Lies on HBO. I read the book several years ago and as soon as it was announced that it was going to be made into a series with Reese Witherspoon (love her!) I have been counting down the days until it started. Now that it has actually aired, I still can’t get over how good it is. Seriously. If you haven’t watched it yet, please stop reading this and go do it right now. The whole cast is phenomenal and it is top quality TV.

I also recently stopped at Barnes and Noble and picked up Truly, Madly, Guilty – which was 50% off! This book is by the same author, Liane Moriarty, as Big Little Lies, and I couldn’t put it down until I finished it! I love to read but I haven’t been doing much of it lately, and this book really reminded me how much I need to make time for a good book.

So that wraps up March in Review! Hope you enjoyed, and let me know how your month went! Any new beauty products I should try? Book suggestions for next month? Let me know. 🙂
