March Favorites!

Thank you all so much for the well wishes on Friday! We are so excited to be able to share all the news! At 14 weeks this week, its still all sinking in and we have been over the moon to start looking at baby stuff! For today's post, I wanted to share what my March favorites were. Thank goodness March is on the way out and April is on the way in. We had another pretty cool week last week, but this week is looking much better. Here is what I loved this month!

March Favorites

Island Coconut Soy Candle

Before we get into the beauty products, this candle people! It smells just like vacation. Within the first two days I had it, I burned it so much it was almost half gone. I hadn't tried this brand before, so I stuck with the smaller jar in case I didn't like it, but I so wish I had bought the bigger size. You can find it in the Signature Soy brand at Target. I don't really notice a difference between soy and regular candles, but I'll definitely be repurchasing.

The Body Shop All In One BB Cream

I've actually used this stuff before, but I completely forgot about it. The Body Shop's All In One BB cream works so great! Being pregnant has changed my skin a lot already, and I just don't like to wear a lot of makeup these days. This feels so thin and weightless since it isn't actually foundation that I can wear it all day long. It blends well and evens out my skin. I have it in the lightest color, 01.  

CND Gel Polish

Again with the pink polish this week - I just can't get enough of these bright colors. "Hot Pop Pink" is one of my favorite CND gel colors that I've been using with my gel lamp. It so reminds me of spring and summer!

Clearasil 4 Hour Treatment

Again, my skin has changed with being pregnant and I have had more blemishes than normal. This stuff takes the redness away relatively quick, and helps dry up the oily spots. It's definitely only a spot treatment - you won't want to put this all over because it is pretty drying. I also switched up my face wash, and currently use the grapefruit gel from Neutrogena. It has done wonders for my skin!

Suave Keratin Infusion

I have been loving this Keratin infusion by Suave for my second day hair. The ends get a little dry, and pretty static-y. After I run a flat iron over it, I put a pea sized about in my hand and spread it around, and then run it over my ends. It adds the moisture back and almost acts like a leave in conditioner. This was actually part of a kit I tried, and I am almost out. I need to look at their line for something similar as a stand alone product. 

There you are! The March products that I can't live without. What were your favorites for the month?


  1. You should try Suave's Moroccan Oil Spray - it's one of my favorite products, and my hair has never been softer.

  2. I always love your recommendations! I really need to get on board with the BB cream! Also, totally missed the announcement so I'm going to stalk that now- but CONGRATS :)

  3. I am so stinking excited for you I can't stand it!!! Congrats--can't wait to follow along in your journey :) I need to try that BB cream--I have tried a few and I actually liked a lot of them, but they broke my skin out--so I am still on the hunt!


  4. I still need to get a few more colors like the CND one you have for my at home gel manis!! xo, Biana - BlovedBoston

  5. Ah I love the new suave products. It looks like my favorite leave in cream isn't sold anymore...either that or I just haven't had any luck finding it!

  6. That candle sounds delicious, it's been awhile since I've been down the candle isle in Target, I'm due!

  7. Yum, I bet that candle smells delicious!

  8. I've been wanting to try some of the CND colors! I'll have to add that color to my list. I'm always looking for a good, lightweight foundation/cream/whatever for summer so I'll have to try out the body shop one. And I know you don't want to hear this, but I've heard you're not supposed to use benzoyl peroxide when you're pregnant. :( I know it sucks. My skin went on a rampage my first trimester, but it gets better!

  9. Coconut is one of my favorite scents, I even prefer to have coconut flavors in a perfume so that candle sounds amazing. It reminds me of beaches and summer!
