March Favourites 2017

Hello to you my lovely readers!
Okay so first off I just want to say a big welcome to all my new followers, my numbers have suddenly been cropping up so thank you and I hope you continue to enjoy my content! Today I've got another monthly round up for you! March is one of my favourite months of the year, so get ready for a good'n.

"The Intern"

Shocking! No Netflix series this month, I know! This is mainly due to the fact that I have mostly been rewatching "Once Upon A Time" instead of branching out for something new, and I've already reviewed the series here. All Netflix series suggestions welcome, I'm always on the look out for something new. Instead I've been back on the film wagon. Firstly, I am a big fan of Anne Hathaway and Robert De Niro, and this film kind of reminded me of "The Devil Wears Prada". Set in New York, it's a really sweet story of an older gentleman, Ben Whittaker (De Niro) who still has a bit of life left in the ol' ticker, and applies for a senior internship with a fashion company. He brings a breath of fresh air to the hectic company founder, Jules Ostin (Hathaway) and her busy schedule, balancing work and family. I really enjoyed it, it has some great laugh out loud moments, along with some that give a little tug on your heartstrings. I'd definitely recommend giving it a watch on a night in.

"Brand New Day" by Kodaline

I have been a huge fan of Kodaline since 2013 when their album 'In A Perfect World' was released, and you may already be familiar with their music if you're a fan of the UK TV series Gogglebox, as their tracks are often used as transitional music, and "Brand New Day" is one of these tracks. It's perfect for driving around on fresh and sunny spring days with your sunglasses on. More of this please and thank you.

"Story" by Leddra Chapman

Anything by Leddra Chapman just sounds like spring to me, as I always seem to listen to her around this time of year. I really love her voice as an English singer / songwriter and musician, but this track has some great and unusual instruments thrown in there which I love, I think they give the track a really unique but soft sound, perfectly paired with her voice. Definitely check out her stuff if you haven't already.

"The Urn" by John Powell

If you know me, then you know I love score music! I think its safe to say that the 'P.S. I Love You' score by John Powell is one of my all time favourites, and it just so happens that it fits perfectly with this time of year! The acoustic guitars, strings, plus the added tin whistle element to give the tracks the Irish element is something I adore, since I already have a long time love affair with traditional Irish music. I love listening to this whole album on sunny spring mornings; I find it has a really calming effect on me. Give it a try and see what you think!

Yuzu and the Cocoa by LUSH Cosmetics

As soon as Spring rolls around I love using this shower cream, in fact I only ever use shower creams / gels from LUSH for my body wash. I love that you can buy the smaller bottles and rotate all the gorgeous smells. I first purchased Yuzu and the Cocoa in April 2015 and it now always reminds me of warm sunny days. Made with fresh yuzu juice, refreshing grapefruit oil, cocoa butter and tonka, it smells almost like orange chocolate. The cocoa butter also helps to leave skin feeling super soft.  

Sympathy for the Skin by LUSH Cosmetics

Yep, another LUSH product. Let it be known that I am a huge fan of LUSH, they might be a little more expensive than your average high street product but you always know what you're paying for: fresh, natural ingredients, without the need to test on animals. Fortunately their products are also amazing and completely worth it. Sympathy for the Skin is a hand and body moisturiser, and if the smell of banana, cocoa butter and vanilla doesn't seal the deal then try applying it to the skin. The consistency is relatively thin but really packs a punch, I'll apply this straight after a shower in the evening and my legs and arms still feel incredibly soft the next morning!

MaxFactor's Colour Elixir Lipstick in 'English Rose'

Okay so not food, and no I am not endorsing actually eating lipstick. But since I'm sure we've all heard that women eat several pounds of lipstick a year, I figured it could pass for the taste category? This lipstick has been in my collection for quite some time, its a beautiful natural 'my lips but better' shade, with a slight extra hint of pink, perfect for this time of year. I love the formula of the MaxFactor lipsticks, they're soft and creamy with a lovely satin finish. I also find that they last a surprisingly long time!
