Today I’m recapping the month of March. Get all the details on what I bought, watched, read and my personal favorite – changed in my home.
Clothes & Beauty Products I Bought:
Polka Dot Jumpsuit
Denim Jacket (this is similar to mine)
Target Wedges – Great Marc Fisher dupe!
Purple Shampoo – My hair was getting brassy and my hair stylist recommended I try a purple shampoo.
Bridesmaid Dress (lol – thought I’d share this as a preview to the wedding I’m in this May because it’s super cute!)
So, I redid a basement room and I wanted to show y’all before and after pictures because it’s INCREDIBLE. If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen it already in my stories, but here’s the results. I am thinking about doing a whole post on my house transformations – thoughts?!
Isn’t this nuts?
Where I Traveled/Ate:
Did you catch my “Don’t Be Spring Broke Post“? I tried hard to NOT eat out or travel this month in an effort to save money.
Movies or Shows I Saw:
Last month I got Movie Pass, which I plan on writing a whole post about. I saw four movies this month – one I saw twice actually!
Every Day: This is about a person who wakes up in a different body every day. It’s definitely different, but I would say something to rent. My rating: 3/5 stars.
Hurricane Heist: I LOVED this movie. It’s made by the producers of Fast & Furious and similar in theme. My rating: 4.5/5
Tomb Raider: I am such a nerd and saw this twice. I didn’t realize it was made after a video game until after. It reminded me of National Treasure. My rating: 4/5
Midnight Sun: Oh, Bella Thorne. Everyone hates her, but I like her as an actress. This movie was so cliche and cheesy. My rating: 2/5 but good for a girl’s night, as it was captivating.
Netflix/Hulu Series I Watched:
Still finishing that old Project Runway season! I actually invested in the CBS App on my phone and I’ve been watching The Good Fight. It’s only four episodes in if you want to follow along with me! I highly recommend it for lovers of Law & Order or drama shows. It’s a spin-off of The Good Wife (an old favorite of mine).
Recipes I Tried:
It’s awful to say, but I didn’t try any recipes this month worth sharing. I tried a crockpot chicken thigh/potato/carrot medley that had a soy sauce topping and it was just meh. I’m not sure if I over-cooked it or it was the sauce, but I didn’t love it.

What’s On My Tending List for April:
I’ve been going to the gym 5/7 days a week and to a lot of cycling classes, so continuing this. I also plan on doing a 5K, going to bridal showers and bachelorette parties and trying to maintain a good nightly face regimen – which if I do, I’ll share!
