March 2017 Favorites

Wow!  The month of March just flew by!  And April does not look like it's going to slow down at all. I'm really enjoying the weather and the fact that we are getting a lot more sunshine and daylight!  But I am not really digging the horrible seasonal allergies I'm experiencing.  If you have any tips for allergies, please let them in the comments.

Here are my favorites for the month of March!



1. Happy Planner.  I've tried very unsuccessfully to use a planner in the past.  I've actually tried 3 different planners this year.  I finally found the right planner for me and it's the Me and My Big Ideas Happy Planner.  I use the medium size (?), it's not the jumbo and it's not the mini.  If you follow me on Instagram, you'll see in my stories that on Monday morning I sit down to plan my week.  The vertical layout of the Happy Planner really works for me and I feel like I have plenty of room right write which is important to me.  I'd rather have empty boxes than not enough room.  Also, I LOVE watching YouTube videos where people are using their Happy Planner so if you know someone please link them below.  I really love Jennie McGarvey's videos on YouTube!


2. Amazing Lash Studio Extensions.  You might know I love my lash extensions from my past review.  This month, I decided to go up one size in my lashes inspired by the amazing Kira Tuiaki and her lashes.  OMG, I'm in LOVE!  I believe I'm at a 14 or maybe a 15.  I don't even know what those numbers mean, millimeters I think.  I feel like it's made a HUGE difference on my face and I LOOOOOVE them!  (I also love this tiny leprechaun hat that I got for St. Patrick's Day from the Target Dollar Spot but I have to put it away until next year.)  If you're in Elk Grove and want to get lashes please sign up using my referral link and put my name in the referral spot.  


3. Honey Honey Hand Creme by Perfectly Posh.  I have had so much dryness lately.  I think it's part of my allergies.  I love this hand creme because it smells like Skittles!  In my ongoing efforts to become an actual unicorn, I believe that smelling like candy is one of the steps.  The creme leaves my hands soft and smoothes out the dryness but it's not greasy.  I can use my phone almost immediately after putting it on and you know that's very important to me since I'm on IG all the time.  (Photo from Perfectly Posh website.)

4. Fresh citrus fruits.  Namely Cara Cara oranges (which I just read are going out of season in April, boo) and mandarin oranges.  My favorite place to get them is at the Farmers Market.  I usually go to the Old Elk Grove Farmer's Market or Midtown Market.  But in case we don't make it there, I really also like the little mandarins from Trader Joe's (I look for the smallest ones) and the Cara Cara oranges from Sprouts.  They are so sweet right now!  They taste like candy and are perfect for when I get a sweet craving.  

5.  BBC Kid.  I believe her name is Marion Kelly but everyone knows her as BBC Kid.  She's the little girl that busted in on her dad's BBC interview with her darling little glasses and her yellow shirt.  I even watched the follow up video with them and she was just as cute.  I keep this GIF on my phone to cheer me up when I'm in a grumpy mood and to remind me to be more fun like little Marion.

Hope you are having a great month so far!  What were some of your favorites from last month that I should check out??

  1. "In my ongoing efforts to become an actual unicorn, I believe that smelling like candy is one of the steps." This is my new motto in life. Thanks Ashley ❤❤❤

    Also, for allergies. Never leave the house, big sunglasses if you do. Bring a bag with your tissues so you don't leave a trail like Hansel and Gretel.

  4. Ugh, my son is dealing with allergies too! We have to sneak his meds into his juice each morning. I can't wait until the pollen finally settles down. I'll have to catch your IG stories and n Monday. I've been thinking about getting the happy planner.

  5. I think that smelling like candy would put anyone in a good mood, including those of us who get to smell you.
