Todays post is simply me sharing some of the things I’ve been loving throughout March. I’ve had a little switch up over the past month as spring has been approaching.
New season, new me ‘n’ all that!
(Click the pictures for a link to everything I’ve mentioned)
1. Zara, Sweater T-shirt
I’ve been loving these Zara sweater T-shirts! I bought the same T-shirt in black last spring and have worn it to absolute death, so when I went in to Zara to kill some time before a hair appointment and stumbled across these, I couldn’t say no. I’m meant to be having a spending ban so decided to limit myself to just the beige and pink (I’m sure I’ll get the white, black and grey at a later date).
The reason I love them so much is that firstly, they fit so nice and snug around the arms and shoulders. Secondly they just make you look a lot more put together than if you were to throw on a cotton t-shirt in the same colour.
2. Zara, Buckled Loafer
Along with the spending ban comes an even stricter ‘no shoe buying’ policy, however… I have no willpower.
I’m planning to buy the Gucci Jordaan loafers when I go back to England. But once again I went in to Zara, purely for a browse and saw these. After umming and ahing I decided there was no point because I wanted to get the Gucci pair so I didn’t buy them… However, I then went in on another occasion and they had a 50% discount on them. Naturally I figured it’d be offensive not to take advantage of such a bargain. At least this way I know whether it’s worth me investing in the Gucci pair, right?
I already have a similar Gucci pair in suede and have found them to be so wearable, however with these being leather I feel like I’m going to get even more wear out of them as they’ll be easier to team with day-time outfits like jeans and a casual shirt.
I couldn’t find the same pair on the Zara website but I’ve linked to a similar pair.
3. Aesop, Deodrant
Possibly the most expensive deodorant to ever exist. Luckily you get what you pay for with this though. I’ve used this on and off for a few years and have found that nothing else compares.I feel like it has a lasting power that matches those listed in my top fragrances review (click here if you haven’t read it).
I can put this on in the morning, go to class, lectures, clinics and the gym and will still be smelling fresh. It’s scent consists of: vetiver root, clove oil, thyme and tea tree- your nostrils will love it. I like that it comes in a spray bottle rather than an aerosol too!
4. Yes-to, Moisturiser
I’ve seen Yes-to products being talked about all over youtube and other blogs, but I tend to steer away from products packed with natural ingredients as my skin doesn’t take to them too well. I somehow came across this on Asos of all places, around 6 weeks ago and figured I’d just give it a go and see what happens.
I would say it’s quite a thick moisturiser- which I wouldn’t think would work with combination skin, but somehow it does. Having said that I would say to just use a pea-sized amount otherwise your face does get a bit shiny throughout the day!
5. Osis, Dust It Flex
The first of two hair products I cant get enough of this month. This is a hair product that’s actually more suited to a more natural hairstyle- not a slicked back, wet look, parting like mine. I’ve been trying (and failing) to sport a more matte hairstyle so thought buying this would be a good place to start.
I apply this to the roots of my blow-dried hair and then rub it in before styling.I was so surprised how strong this holds when I first used it! It really stiffens the hair, so you can just apply this, get it in to style and then add some hair-spray for extra hold. Definitely a 10/10 recommend.
6. KIPA, Hard Hed
When I went to Dubai last month this was the only thing that would keep my hair in place all day and night.Despite trying the entire KIPA hairstyling range, this was one of the products that has really stood out to me. No matter what mix of products I’ve been using to style my hair, this is always included.
It’s so easy to apply, has amazing hold and it has a matte finish!
7. BaByliss, Trimmer
Having previously used the BaByliss iStubble and not getting on with it I was a bit apprehensive to invest in another BaByliss trimmer.
I was on the look out for a clipper version with interchangeable grades, rather than an electronic version. I’d read a few reviews on this one and it seemed to be exactly what I was looking for.It comes in a little carry box, which is great for when I’m travelling and it has an array of different grades to choose from too!
I got mine from Boots for around £40-£50, so be sure to check it out in-store as I can’t find it on the website, however I have also linked to a different website just in case you can’t get it in store.
8. Beats by Dre, Solo 2, Wireless
Last, but by no means least.
These have been a game changer to my life! I received these as a gift for Christmas and wasn’t too sure how much I’d make use them. I’ve always been an earphone user, so when I got these I wasn’t sure if I’d be able to say goodbye to my Bose earphones. Long story short I did.
I’ve been using these constantly this month from accompanying me on long journeys, to using them in the gym.They’re so soft on the ears and in general are really comfortable which I didn’t think they would be.The fact that they have Bluetooth means I can now simply leave my phone in my gym bag while I work out, so I’m no longer spending 5 minutes scrolling through instagram between each set. It’s a win-win.
