Hello Sweet Friend! My March Love List items are no joke... get it... because it's April Fool's Day? Yep, that was a stretch BUT I have been loving a handful of products this March and I wanted to give them the accolades they deserve. I got introduced to some of these products in March but I've been loving many of them for a while and found myself using them constantly this month.
All of the products will be linked with where you can find them. So, without further ado, here is my March Love List:
I have constantly been reaching for my TechLink ReCharge Portable Power Bank. I bought this power bank from Target last fall because I was doing a good bit of traveling between Denver and St. Louis and didn't want to be attached to the scarce outlets at the airport. This power bank is the best one I've had so far, I keep it with me in my back pack or purse at all times along with this little tassel, key chain, iPhone cord. They're both quite compact and incredibly handy. I can charge my iPhone 6 from 5-10% to 100% about 5-6 times without having to recharge the power bank. It isn't terribly pricy (about $40) and it is worth every penny. Even when I am just out with friends I find that my phone might need to be charged since I'm constantly on it for work, so this is the perfect solution. Also the cord I keep with it is so darn cute and the perfect size to keep in your bag at all times - because what good is a power bank if you don't have a lightening cable to go with it.
I have a few accessories that made my March Love List and let me tell you... I am seriously crushing on them. First is my Fossil Q Wander Smart Watch. I got this watch for Christmas from my parents and it seems like every time I wear it out in public I get compliments on it. It's a smart watch that looks more like a normal watch. I love the rose gold case and cognac leather strap. My only concern is that I wear dark jeans a lot and my jeans have dyed my strap a bit, BUT luckily I can buy a new strap and have it leather treated to help avoid dye transfer.
This month I got introduced to BohoBetty. I received a couple bracelets from them and I think they are too cute. I've been pairing them a lot with my watch since they're all neutral, leathery pieces. BohoBetty pieces are handcrafted and are such beautiful quality. Everything from the prompt shipping to their cute packaging is amazing. Just as their name suggests, their style is very Bohemian - everything is stackable, layered and right up my alley to say the least. You guys should check them out and if you decide to make a purchase use the coupon code "KAITLINCLAYWELL" for 20% off your purchase.
Since this is my first monthly Love List I have to mention one of my all time favorites, holy grail makeup products. The L'Oreal Voluminous Carbon Black Mascara. I don't think I can say enough good things about this mascara. I've been using it for years, ever since I first heard Jaclyn Hill talk about it on her YouTube channel about 3 years ago. This mascara out performs many high end mascaras - trust me... I've tried many of them. This product has a cult-like following and for good reason, it applies so effortlessly, it doesn't get clumpy, it's one of the darkest black formulas I've ever tried and it makes my lashes look so full, long and fluffy. If you want to look like your wearing false lashes without the struggle of false lashes, you should try this out. It's in every drugstore I've been to and is worth the $6.
One thing on my Love List that is kind of vague but absolutely one of my obsessions right now are sheet masks. I haven't really found a sheet mask that I haven't liked. I use sheet masks 1-3 times per week just depending on how I'm feeling about my skin that week. When I go to Target or TJ Maxx I just cruise the skin care sections and normally end up with a couple different masks, from skin cleansing masks to hydrating to collagen boosting masks, I love them all.
I think you all know how much I love Rosebud Perfume Company so I wont go on and on about this next product. I picked up the Menthol and Eucalyptus tube right before I moved back to Missouri about 2 months ago and I've been using it on the daily. The scent is perfect for cold/flu/allergy season because it reminds me of Vicks Vapor Rub but it just feels so soothing and smooth on the lips. If you want to know how I really feel about Rosebud Perfume Company, check out my blog post from a few weeks back!
Ok, you've almost made it through my Love List, only two more products to go... I may or may not have saved the best for last - I will let you decide that! I am obsessed with Tarte Amazonian Clay Blushes. I have a bunch of shades in this formula and I just can not get enough. For my birthday gift from Sephora, I chose the Tarte option and it came with the Clay blush in the shade Paaarty! and it is absolutely stunning. It is a very neutral, almost muted coral and mauve shade. It is so natural looking but really mades a difference in my makeup. The nice thing about this formula is that they actually last on my face. I don't know about you, but blush seems to be the first thing that fades on my face and I don't find that with these blushes.
Last but certainly not least is my go-to bronzer for the month of March. Many of you know that nothing can replace my Hoola Bronzer by Benefit (except maybe their new lite shade) but the Physician's Formula Butter Bronzer has been so raved about in the beauty community that I had to pick it up for myself to see what all the fuss was about. It was difficult to get my hands on because of how popular it became but once I found it at Ulta... I couldn't put it down. It smells like a dreamy, tropical island vacation and it makes all my brushes smell good that I use to apply it with. The formula is true to the name, the powder is buttery and super easy to blend out. Also for gals darker than me, this product is very buildable, I of course use a light hand because I am so fair skinned that bronzers can look orange and muddy real quickly on my skin but it has a very neutral, buildable color that I think can work for a lot of skin tones and types. Also, this bronzer comes in a light and normal shade, I got the normal shade because that was all that was available and I've liked how its looked on me
Alrighty, well... that wraps up my March Love List. I am wanting to make Monthly Love Lists a thing on my blog, so be looking out at the end of each month to find out what I've been loving on. Thanks so much for sticking around! Let me know if you love any of these products too or if you have any recommendations for me!
