March 2018 Favorites

Hello, and welcome back to another monthly favorites post. I've decided to do them a bit differently from now on, starting with a brief overview of my month, and then breaking my favorites into sections! Honestly, it makes them a lot easier to sort through in my head.

March 2018

Overall March has been pretty wonderful. It's finally warm again, and as a person who exists best in warmer weather I've felt my mood rise with the temperatures. It's good to be outside again. Additionally I got to travel a bit this month, spending my spring break in Orlando. I've posted a ton about it on Instagram, so if you're interested in seeing more shots from that, click here. 

Other than that, I've gotten so pretty cool opportunities this month that I can't wait to talk more about as they pan out. But most importantly I've felt a surge of creative energy in March, so I'm excited about channeling that in April. 


Fashion

Okay, I've pretty much lived in these shoes for the past month.  I picked them up from Target a few months ago when I was definitely supposed to be just buying food, but what can you do?  They're almost an exact dupe for a Free People pair I couldn't make myself splurge on and the perfect transitional shoe. And every time I wear them, at least one person asks me about them, so it's a win-win. 

Beauty

Two words, SUBCULTURE PALETTE. Obviously, I'm very obsessed with the Anastasia Beverly Hills Subculture palette I picked up a few months ago. The pallets itself its filled with lots of warm toned adventurous shades. Because of which I've figured out I really love orange and red eyeshadow. Besides the fact that its a very well-curated palette, I think the reason I'm so fond of it is that it's really pushed me outside of my comfort zone, and forced me to break my boring routine of varying shades of brown. 10/10 would recommend. Especially for all of my medium to darker complexion friends out there. 

Media & Entertainment

This is a new section of favorites for me, but I think it's probably the most fun to write. I've always been a huge fan of podcasts, but never found one that I felt like I HAD to recommend. That is until I started listening to "Still Processing." Still Processing is a podcast hosted by two culture writers from "The New York Times," Jenna Wortham and Wesley Morris. And every Thursday they discuss current events and how they intersect with the Black community. But they tackle the issues with a humor, and eloquence that makes the podcasts so much fun to listen to. Even if you're not apart of the black diaspora, I'd encourage you to listen to it. It's a wonderful way to gain insight to the very unique perspective of the black community.

Now onto music. I listen to so much music, it's ridiculous I've never included it in one of these before. But instead of talking to you all about my favorite artists, I've included links to my two favorite curated Spotify playlists this month. One of which is by me, and the other by another blogger who's content I love.  But before you click either, here's what you can expect. Quite a bit of Foster the People, I discovered their Sacred Hearts Club album and am absolutely obsessed. A bit of indie pop, and some fun alternative spring/summer tracks. Enjoy!



And that's it for this month! I hope you enjoyed this new style of favorites post, and as always...

Until Next Time,
Autumn
