March Favorites

Its that time again, another month gone by and I am once again facing my beauty items trying to figure out what are my latest favorites.  So let’s get started!

Powered Countour Cleansing System BlueMy skincare routine hasn’t really changed.  I am washing my face with Olay Va-Va Vivid Cleanser set.  I love this thing.  It is like a clarisonic, but more budget friendly.  I am not really a fan of the cleanser that comes with it because it dries my skin out, but the brush is amazing and it can be used with any facial cleanser.Youth Code™ Serum Intense - Treatments

I am still using the Loreal Youth Code Serum Intense.  I love this stuff.  My skin feels smoother and softer, but firmer and it helps keep the fine lines and wrinkles at bay.  This is usually followed by the Olay Fresh effects Dew Over moisturizing gel and the bright and shine eye cream.  Yep, no change there.


I am also trying to do a facial mask about once a week.  This past month I have really been into the Freeman’s Charcoal and Black Sugar and the Avocado and Oatmeal masks




Foundation hasn’t changed.  I am still loving the Maybelline Fit me Dewy and Smooth In 120 Classic Ivory.   Medium coverage, and light weight.  I actually find that I forget that I’m wearing it.  My blush and finishing powder also hasn’t changed since last month.

My eye makeup changes almost daily, but this month, since we are finally in spring I have really been reaching for the Too Faced A La Mode pallet.  Funny thing is that I saw this pallet and I bought it because I really really liked it and I had never tried their shadows before, so I thought that this would be a good one to start with (this came out before the Chocolate Bar Pallet)  and it got great reviews.  I got it and maybe used it five times and quit.  But recently I have really been into it.  It has great colors for that end of winter, beginning of spring look.  And they are gorgeous colors!  Mascara and Eye liner haven’t changed.

Nail Polish is where its at this month.  I am in love with my Colores De Carol polishes, like madly in love with them.

Favorite band of the month:  If you caught my post the other day about a local band then you can guess where this is headed.  Favorite band this month is The New Translation.

Favorite Book:  Alice in deadland, and that is really only because its the only book that I read this month…sad, I know.  I need to work on that!

So that is it for my monthly favorites!  What are you loving for the month of March?


The New Translation

Okay so remember when I was out that entire week from being sick?  Remember I said that I went through my music library in search of better things for my iPod? Well I came across this little gem of a CD and immediately knew I needed to listen to it.  You can find them on iTunes, just search the band’s name.

This is a group of boys that I grew up with.  I don’t think the band is together anymore because we all grew up and had to get adult jobs, but nonetheless they were huge where I am from. Kind of like Story of the Year which I am sure most of you have heard of, they are also from the stl area.  any way I digress.  They were an amazing band and they really had a great thing going!  I can remember going to many of their concerts.  They are just great.  So when I came across my copy of their album shift, I immediately put it on my iPod and put the CD in my car.  I have not stopped listening to it since.  Seriously.  Not that I didn’t already know their songs by heart, but I love it.  With the weather being as nice as it has been, it’s been a roll down the windows and crank up the volume mode with this one.  So below is two of their songs and a little meet the band video I found while searching for their songs.  Please enjoy!  Let me know what you thing about them!
