Wowza, can you believe that March is over? We’re three months down for the year and my head is just a spinning… I can’t catch up! It’s so crazy. But, it’s definitely the last Thursday in March which means it’s time for Monthly Coffee with myself and Aubrey of High-Heeled Love. I’m also going to tack on my March Favorites this month, since I have a few things I want to share with you-and I think it fits along with the linky party we’re throwing today. For this link-up, we showcase posts by other bloggers that we’ve loved throughout the month-our favorites! So let’s get started…
March Favorites: Blog Posts
Beautiful California Flower Fields You Must Visit This Spring by Local Adventurer | I just can’t get over the beautiful photography by Esther and Jacob in this post. It makes me want to visit those fields so bad, but since I can’t, I’ll settle for enjoying a little virtual visit through their lens.
That One Time I Met Meredith Grey by Mattie’s Makings | I’m a big Grey’s Anatomy fan, so I’m SUPER stoked to hear that Ellen Pompeo is so personable. I always hate finding out that our favorite stars aren’t super nice (even though I totally understand it must suck to be bugged all the time) and it’s great to hear a story like this one.
Kimi Where?: The Origin Story by Kimi Who | I loved getting to know Kimi a little better through this post. She shared photos from her childhood and talked about how she became who she is today. I’m digging bloggers getting all real on me-LOVE it!
Wild and Wonderful Connemara, Ireland by Cosmos Mariners | I can’t help but share this one. I’m so jealous (in a nice non-hater way) that Natalie got to go to Ireland and experience all the beauty found there. I’m super glad she is sharing some of it with us.
Traveling the World via My Stomach by Misadventures with Andi | I love Andi’s review of the Hole in the Wall subscription box, and now I definitely have to try it. She’s talking about traveling via food-right from your own home (or RV in Andi’s case) and I dig it!
Body Image: I Don’t Want to Be Skinny Anymore by Veil by Maryam | I really loved this post. It touched on so many different body image matters applying to loving your body for what it is and not using your body as just “something to attract boys” and I could not agree more. It was such a great post!
March Favorites: Fashion
I received the two pairs of yoga leggings above for review from YogaOutlet.com. The following is my 100% honest opinion about the leggings and their site based on my real experience.
Yoga Outlet Yoga Leggings | I decided to order two pairs of leggings from YogaOutlet.com to try them out. I was pleasantly surprised that they carry a pretty wide variety of plus-sizes, and not only just “extended regular sizes” but actual made for plus size bodies sizes. They’re also surprisingly inexpensive, as I was able to get two pair for under $70-and if I’d been a little more frugal with my choices I probably could have even gotten more. There are lots of options!
I chose the Marika High Rise Tummy Control Leggings in Black, and the Marika Tummy Control Plus Size Yoga Capris in Rouge Red (it’s really pink, not red…). I did find that the sizes run slightly loose, I think I’ve lost a little weight too since I checked the measurements so that could be part of it, but I was very pleased with the product overall. Super happy with these! I’ll post a photo of me wearing them soon, I promise, but for now I’d honestly recommend you checkout YogaOutlet.com for any yoga needs!
Wearable Wednesday: Peter Pan Pants by Sara at The Perfect Storm | I am LOVING this whole look, but I super need those pants and those boots stat. Don’t you think? I do…
Wearable Wednesday: In Combat by Hannah at The Perfect Storm | I’m also totally loving Sara’s partner’s hot pink combat boots.
Raw Yellow and Purple 14kt Gold Fill Necklace by Starlette Designs | I’m OBSESSED with this necklace. It’s soooooo pretty.
March Favorites: Beauty
Photo Shoot Makeup Tips & Full Tutorial by Deux Bella | This is perfect since I have a photo shoot next month! I may have to employ some of these tactics to make myself stand out for the camera. These girls really know their stuff when it comes to makeup.
Quick and Easy Hair Styles for a Long Bob by Lynzy & Co | I love this! A long bob is basically what my hair is, and I’ve been trying to wash it less to keep the purple in it, so I’ve been struggling for hair styles to do on the in between days when my hair is a little wild and dirty. This post has lots of great and adorable options for me to try.
Overtone Conditioner | Speaking of keeping my purple hair purple, I’m OBSESSED with overtone. It works sooooo well. Now I just have to figure out how to get more since my color is back ordered. I think I also need the pink one too so I can mix them and keep the pinker part of my hair prettier.
March Favorites: Recipes
Lemon Coconut Truffles by The Love Nerds | Mmmmm. I’m a fan of anything lemon, but these look AMAZING.
Meatless Monday: Fiery Three Bean Chili with Spicy Lime Sour Cream by The Veganista Foodie | Um, lime? Meat-free? GIMME! Everything about this dish sounds good, and I’ve loved getting to know Tish and learning more about meatless options through her blog.
Sriracha Honey Butter by 4 Sons ‘R’ Us | This sounds sooooooo good. I love Sriracha and honey butter, so bring it on!
What did you love in March?
Monthly coffee is a monthly linky party where we showcase posts from other bloggers throughout the month. You’ll find all sorts of things here, anything that tickled our fancy for the month, and hopefully you’ll find new posts you love and make some new bloggy friends.
How to Participate in Monthly Coffee
- Write up a post showcasing the other posts you loved throughout the month. (I find it helpful to schedule the post or set it to draft at the start of the month, and then just add links to it as the month goes on so I don’t lose anything.)
- Add the button or a link back to the party to your post.
- Link-up in the inLinkz linky tool at the bottom of this post.
- Visit other partiers and check out what they showcased, and leave comments for them.
Link Up With This Party
