If you have read my bio then you know I love
stalking following people on YouTube. Don’t judge me! YouTube has the power to suck you in and never let you go. Hard to believe? Go ahead and watch a “morning routine”, “evening routine”, “my husband does my makeup” or basically any kind of video. If you do not end up checking out all the other videos suggested on the sidebar, then my friend, you have the willpower of a saint! One of my favorite types of videos are the monthly favorites wherein the YouTuber talks about some of the products/things they absolutely loved during that particular month. So I got extremely original and thought of doing the same on my blog. Yes, I am cool that way 😎
At the end of every month, you will see this uber cool post where I’ll talk about my 5 favorite things . It can be a beauty product, a book, a place, a recipe, a quote, a song; basically anything. I have stumbled upon some great products/things while watching these videos and I hope you guys have the same experience too. 😊 So what are we waiting for? Let’s get this party started!

Books make me happy! Apart from transporting me to another world created by my imagination, I like the feeling of being a well-read woman. Sounds grown-up and sophisticated right!? Past couple of years haven’t been the best in terms of reading good books but that’s about to change. I plan on reading atleast one book a month this year (other than my beloved chick flicks and mills and boons which I unabashedly and wholeheartedly love! Ok I can see my sophisticated persona fading away..) Anne of Green Gables was the perfect start. This book is a classic children literature that can be enjoyed by people of all ages. Do not expect a life changing experience or a dramatic storyline. The beauty of this book is in it’s simplicity and follows the life of the main character, Anne Shirley, who tugs at your heart and puts a smile on your face throughout 🙂
This nail color by Revlon is so perfect for spring that I am totally obsazzed! I am wearing the same color in the pic above and it definitely looks more gorgeous outside. Resembles one of the Pantone color of the year called Serenity; yes I know some cool fashion stuff now, perks of following a million fashion bloggers. I always apply a base and top coat as it helps in making the nail color last longer.
ps -The Revlon website is down for maintanence and I can’t find this shade anywhere else online. I grabbed mine from Walgreens but I am sure this shade can be found in any of the drugstores
I rarely use perfumes; I haven’t found “my” scent yet and they are freaking expensive to use every single day. This small bottle of fragrance is sheer magic! It comes in a roller form and can be applied to the pulse points of the body for a very light intoxicating scent. Even though the name is “Persian garden”, the smell is far from floral. Best way to describe it would be a mix of mystery and exotic, if that makes sense. This beauty can be found in any natural store (whole food, sprouts etc). Check it out when you are in one of these stores and I promise you won’t be disappointed. If you love strong scents then this may not work for you. This fragrance oil is extremely light and you may get a whiff of the scent here and there, which works perfectly for me.
Let’s take a moment to appreciate the beauty of ripped jeans. 1,2,3… 🙏🏽 My mom has still not seen me in these babies (one of the very very very very few perks of living away from parents!) which means I flaunt them at every opportunity. I have worn this pair like almost every other day this month!
I don’t understand a word but this song makes me happy and I sway my hips everytime I listen to it, which is like a million times a day. I love to dance and regret not learning it professionally. Well it still does not stop me from dancing at every opportunity – zumba, clubs, weddings, pavements … any place that has good music playing. So go on, listen and dance like nobody’s watching! 💃🏽
“Take that extra LEAP today”
I won’t be posting a blog again on this day for another 4 years. How unreal is that!? I hope this post makes your 29th a little more interesting. What are some of your favorite things or experiences of the month? I would love to hear them in the comment section❤️ – Love, M
