Welcome to my first installment of “In The Month of:….” series wherein I’ll share with you what I have been up to for the month as well as things I’ve tried, purchased and/or loved that I’d be happy to recommend to you, too.
First off, I’m really sorry if things had been a little bit cold in the past weeks on my end. Some things needed to be taken care of, but now I’m back!
This month has been challenging for me work-wise since I started a new job. I had to adjust to new situations and put off some miscellaneous things for a while. Training has been going really well and I’m hopefully on the last leg before I get thrusted into the real deal thing but I’m definitely loving the new company I’m working for right now. It’s a place I could no doubt take pride in.
Without further chit-chat, here’s what’s in the month of March:
On lingerie. I’ve been lucky enough last month to acquire a complete set of a very beautiful black pair of lingerie from Reger by Janet Reger. As you guys might know already, I am a somewhat of a lingerie enthusiast and been trying to collect beautiful pieces that are within my budget and I recently discovered this brand from Debenhams. This piece just frames my curves in the most delicious way and the lace-embroidered waspie is very easy to put on or off, fits snugly around my waist and even gives it a nice accentuated shape and the feel is just exquisite. I finished this look with some black stay ups from H&M. (I wanted to post a photo of me wearing it but it feels a bit too explicit, LOL. Maybe next time.)
On bath cosmetics. This month I finally got to try Lush’s Dark Angels when I bought some gifts for my boyfriend and a close friend (bubble bar The Comforter and bath bomb Butter Ball). The verdict for Dark Angels? They’re YUM. I’ve tried them while in the shower and out of the shower. They smell quite lemony, which is different from most activated charcoal products I’ve tried but they do work wonders taking out the gunk sitting deep in the pores.
On skincare. Like mentioned in my skincare products post, I received some samplers from Bioderma when I scored the buy 1, get 1 promo of a big bottle of Sensibio and Hydra. The verdict? Coming soon.
On new movies. This month, I have treated myself to Jordan Peele’s second horror movie installment, Us. His debut film Get Out was such a hit in my books that I knew I just needed to see this second one. The “horror” brand on this was more social thriller than your textbook definition of the word but it was definitely interesting and worth seeing and rewatching again and again. Read my other short thoughts here.
On purchases. This month, I scored this really nice dress from H&M that I could don on lunch dates or brunches.
On make up. This month, I decided to replenish my usual Too Faced Hangover Primer (A GODSEND, i’m telling you), Huda Beauty’s Trophy Wife matte lipstick and Maybelline Foundation and Face Powder. I was a little bit surprised that my usual foundation and powder is now discontinued and I have to result to trying out other versions of Fit Me. I have not used and opened them yet but I’d let you know my first thoughts the second I put them on, I promise!
On food. I didn’t have the budget to try out a new restaurant this month, but I’ve been cooking quite religiously some yummy work meals so stay tuned for my Meal Prep Madness for March!On date nights. Boyfriend has been incredibly busy flying around the globe as usual, but I’m happy I got to see him at least twice this month and even went out for some drinks at JB’s Gastropub in Jumeirah Beach Residence where I personally have fond memories with some friends. I got to doll up really nicely as well, which is a plus. Missing him badly and wishing I’d be in his arms soon 😦
