March Discoveries

March was a whirlwind that can only be summed up as the month that I become older. I mean literally; I turned 23.

While I was busy maturing and growing wiser - Ha! I wish- I realized that I want to incorporate more non-book related posts on this site. I really like writing weekly blog posts, and eventually, I'd like to write posts twice a week. However, I'm not a fast reader so it can difficult to come up with content solely about books once a week. I hope you don't mind. (:

Keep reading if you want to see the 4 (non-book related) things I discovered in March!

1. A video about the right way to wash your face. I'm still not sure how I came across this video but so glad I did. Isabelle Bellis has a way of making a simple cleanser sound luxurious. Whenever I wash my face, her voice is in the back of my head talking me through the steps, and I feel like I'm getting a fancy facial. Now, I don't follow every step. I don't use a thermal spray; although, I might check it out just to see if it does anything to my skin. If you're interested in knowing what products I currently use, I'll link them down below. Right now, I'm using Origins Checks and Balances as my cleanser, a simple rosehip oil as my serum, Air Repair's moisturizer, and an eye cream from Bliss.

2. I bought these sheet masks about a month ago for a Galentine's day party I was throwing.  I found these masks to be very gentle and hydrating on the skin. In the past, I've never been a major sheet mask fan, but these are slowly converting me over. I love that they don't slip off your face; although, it's difficult to keep the lip area in place. Unlike clay masks, which will suck out every ounce of moisture from your skin if you don't wash it off after 10 minutes, these can stay on for 30+ minutes. After I use these up, I want to try the Tony Moly sheet masks. I've read really good reviews online plus their packaging is adorable.

3. I discovered how amazing the color mustard looks with my skin tone. Seriously, mustard and I are having a moment. Last month I bought not 1 or 2 but 3 mustard color tops. And I'm just getting starting, baby! I've seen so many mustard things online that I'm tempted to buy. Here's hoping in April that I discover the importance of saving my money by not buying frivolous things!

4. Mozart in The Jungle first caught my attention last year when it won the Golden Globe for Best Television Show - Comedy. Since then, it has been on my watchlist. It was only recently that I had the time to sit down and check it out. And my oh my, it's a good one! It's centered around the New York Symphony and their new eccentric maestro, Rodrigo (Gael Garcia Bernal). We see the show mainly through Hailey's eyes, a young oboist who's trying to become a part of the symphony. Each episode runs 20ish minutes and each season has 10 episodes so you won't feel too bad when you finish an entire season in one setting.

Now I want to hear from you! Did you have any discoveries or favorites from March? Also, what types of posts do you want to see from me!? Do you have any book post ideas? Do you want to see more plain ol' life stuff? Let me know in the comments!



P.S. I'm taking a break from blogging and the internet for most of April. I'm feeling uninspired in a lot of areas of my life & work. Hopefully, by stepping away, I will be able to clear my head. I do have a post/video going up on Sunday that I've already written. I hope you check it. It's different from all my other posts.
