March 2022 Beauty Faves

March was something else, lemme tell ya. The good part was celebrating our wedding anniversary. The bad part? Our dog Indy ended up needing emergency dental surgery and that was a long few days of tests (he's older) and getting him prepared for surgery. That was followed with pain medication, antibiotics, and weeks of making sure he was healing properly, but all is well now! Our vets are amazing, so we knew he was in good hands but I was still an absolute wreck from beginning to end. He's bounced back and is enjoying his food, toys, and generally speaking incredibly spoiled lifestyle. We wouldn't have it any other way. 😍

I didn't get around to doing a favorites post last month, which is unfortunate as they have always been ones I enjoy doing as well as reading on other blogs and pages. So let's dig into some of my fave products from March! As always, you can let me know if we have any in common or what got your love and affection this past month in the comments!

Colourpop and Old Navy Collective Haul

Long time no post! I can't explain why other than there's just a lot going on in the world and I'm doing my best to navigate through it. No excuses, just self preservation. I've been unplugging a lot and giving myself breaks. It's a privilege that I appreciate more so these days than many in the past. Not just following world news, but I try to stay caught up on the two countries that I call home. It can become overwhelming quite quickly and I realized how important unplugged moments are in a world that is very plugged in.

I still have my pictures for What I Got for Christmas, but it seems so far removed from Christmas now to share. Maybe I'll fit them into a random post, if interest is there. Most of the items end up popping up in my Instagram photos, though! And there are other posts I'm behind on, but I have to keep telling myself not to beat myself up about it. I'll get back into the swing of things. I know I will. It's just the obsessiveness and perfectionist in me that wants to make things harder on myself with added pressure and a proverbial magnifying glass pointing things out. Both a blessing and a curse at any given moment.

Today's post is a simple throwback to old school blogging, a collective haul with stock photos (since I'm waiting for the items to arrive)! I made an order from Colourpop during their big sale and used some Super Cash from Old Navy, taking advantage of Rakuten's cash back on both orders. Here's what I got and now for the hard part of waiting for it to arrive! 😁 I apologize if some of the Colourpop items are now out of stock since it was also a "last chance" sale but most, if not all, of the Old Navy items are still available if you see something you like!

January 2022 Faves

First faves of 2022! I don't know about you, but I feel like this year is already exhausting. I hope that changes, I really do! I'm happy it is Friday and I am hoping to spend this weekend in the most relaxing ways we can. There are some shows to catch up on, a jigsaw puzzle to be finished, and a charcuterie board ready to be put to use for a delicious lunch on one of the days. It's not much and that's exactly what I'm looking for in a world that has proven to feel like too much for me lately. 

Aside from this past month's favorites, I did my annual favorites roundup for 2021 in the post before this. Here's what I reached for in January!

2021 Beauty Favorites

Time to do a little roundup of some products I loved last year! I change it up a bit each year. In 2020, I included skincare. And honestly, as far as skincare goes, not much has changed aside from a product or two. The products I featured in 2020 are still absolute winners, so much so that a few are repeated this year! With not leaving home much due to the pandemic, these were my "reach fors" practically every outing even if just to feel put together for a moment to pick up curbside orders and when it began to feel like if I don't make some sort of personal effort, that I'll forget what it is like to function among the land of the living and outside of my four walls.

What did you love last year? I'd love to know! While I mentioned there are a few repeats on my list from 2020, I did add a few new things to my collection that lived up to hype or expectation. To make it easy to organize, I've broken it up into categories with six products each. Do we have any in common? If you would like a more in depth review or swatches on anything, let me know and I'll work on getting a post together. 😊

December 2021 Favorites

I'm still on 2021, but not for long! Not that I mind elongating the holiday season a little longer. I'm hoping to have a post up on Christmas and my top products of 2021 this week and next and that should round out the last of my 2021 posts. I don't know what 2022 holds, but as of right now, it feels much of the same from last year. We're safe and healthy, so I start this new year being grateful for that. I may have to search harder some days to find something to be grateful for, but there is always something.

My favorites last month were a bit low-key and not my typical holiday fare. No red lipstick, because my mask would cover it. No pretty eyeshadows, because I honestly never left the car and chose curbside delivery. Just the bare minimal to make me feel a little more human, but with as little effort as possible. Not complaining here, because I absolutely do not mind the little effort part. 😂
