What I'm Loving | March 2013

I don't know about you but the month of March seemed to go by pretttty slow. Maybe it's because I have a vacay planned for May in a sunny place and it just seems so far away. I'm definitely looking forward to April and the start of spring. This cold, drab weather is really no fun. Since I tend to hibernate in the winter, I haven't made that many new purchases this past month but here are a few thing I have been loving, new and old.
clockwise, starting from top left:
bkr water bottle in crush: a beautifully design water bottle with a great story behind it. ditch the plastic, go with glass. 

american apparel unisex circle scarf: this scarf served me well during winter. yes, it is essentially a big piece of fabric but it is so soft. I have one in the color tri-coffee but they're available in a bunch of different colors.

Bath and Bath Work Candle in Lavender Vanilla: vanilla and lavender are two of my favorite scents but together, they're even better.

Angie's Boomchickapop Lightly Sweet Popcorn: salty, sweet, and healthy to boot. I ate a whole bag in a day...and I don't feel guilty about it. 

Sam Edelman Lisel Bootie: love this bootie because it gives you a subtle pop of color and a little bit of height. they're also super comfortable.

Real Techniques Expert Face Brush: i love every real techniques brush ever made. This one is great for foundation.


DIY | Turn Candle Jars into Storage Containers

I have a small obsession with candles (with a penchant for the vanilla and lavender kind) and I've accumulated quite a number of empty candle jars. I was browsing Pinterest not too long ago and found this quick and handy guide on how to clean residual candle wax from candle jars. From personal experience, I've tried a number of DIY's on pinterest that turned out not so well but this one definitely works and best of all, its easy. Now my cotton balls have a pretty new home. Definitely try this out, it works great with the candle jars from Bath and Body Works.
