Hey friends, and welcome back to styledbymckenz! Please tell me I am not the only one literally in awe that tomorrow will be the first day of April. Seriously, where has the time gone?! However, with the month coming to an end it means it’s time to share with you all what I’ve been loving this month + what’s been going on.

Honestly, this month has been an absolute roller coaster of temperatures and weather. As you can tell some days I was stuck in multiple layers and all the chunky knits and other days I could wear open toed shoes! Although, that’s partially why I had such a hard time choosing my top three favorite outfits this month. (Hence, the reason why I chose five!) I’ve been loving light wash denim, white, and stripes this month… oh and my fake glasses from Amazon.

This month was all about accessorizing as well. I’ve been experimenting with things around my neck a ton whether it be scarves, bandanas, or my new chokers from BellaDesignsByBree. Be sure to follow me on Instagram @styledbymckenz, I am giving away the daisy one today! This month I’ve also been sporting my favorite gold crossboody from Gap and my $6 espadrilles from Forever 21; they are the perfect spring shoe.

IMG_6914.JPGMy makeup favorites this month were by far the Bare Minerals Lipgloss and my Too Faced Chocolate Bar palette. This palette has always been one of my favorites as I find that it is so versatile and I can create endless looks with this palette. Other than this I have honestly been feeling super uninspired with my makeup choices and feel that a trip to Ulta is very much in need for the near future.

As far as my Bible goes, I just finished reading 1 Corinthians and it was absolutely amazing. On top of that I’ve been reading verses here and there from Psalms. After talking with Gb a lot this month, I have realized that Jesus’s love is absolutley unfailing and that he can heal all wounds no matter how big they may be.

I have slowed down a bit on the Netflix and am only at the beginning of Season 3 on Gilmore Girls but am loving it nonetheless. Right now I am seriously in the mood to watch a fashion inspired movie or TV show like the Carrie Diaries so if you have any suggestions please leave them below! And as far as music goes, I’ve honesty been listening to a ton of country with Madison this month. Something about it just screams home to me.

Let’s talk goals; last month I set a goal to reach 2,000 followers on my Instagram and I am super happy to announce that that goal has been met. I hope to reach 2,200 and begin getting my blog subscriptions up and moving again as I reached a bit of a stand still this month.  Hopefully everything goes as planned + I’m working on a super excited project that I cannot wait to share with you.  I also have been a planning freak this month and have been using my Lily agenda nonstop to plan things out for the blog and for school. Something about my organized mess leaves me feeling a little less anxious.

March Empties

Hey everyone, welcome back to styledbymckenz! In January I shared my first ever empties post of all the products I used up throughout the month and my honest opinion/review on all the products. I got such positive feedback and finished so many products this month that I figured, why not do another one?! Alright, before I start to ramble let’s get on into it.

March Empties

 

I finished up quite the stash of body products as you can tell. This is probably my fourth set of Warm Vanilla Sugar lotion and perfume. It is my absolute favorite scent because it’s not to perfume-y, I will definitely be repurchasing this set again. I use Bath & Body Works body washes all the time, however I wasn’t in love with this scent ( A Thousnad Wishes) so I probably will not repurchase this one again. I also finished the 3 Minute Miracle hair mask from Aussie. This was my fifth time finishing a bottle and I will most definitely repurchase this again. It is such a life saver for dry, brittle hair!

Product: Bath & Body Works Warm Vanilla Sugar Body Lotion
Stars: 5/5
Repurchase: yes

Product: Bath & Body Works A Thousand Wishes Body Wash
Stars: 3.5/5

March Empties

I also finished quite a few makeup products this month. First, is the only brush cleaner I have ever used. I find that it works well but nothing about it screams ‘amazing’ to me. I also finished the Maybelline Great Lash Mascara which is my favorite affordable mascara because it lengthens and volumizes at the same time, plus at $5 it cannot be beat. I also finished the Maybelline Fit Me Concealer and have already repurchased it. It is the best drugstore concealer because it covers literally everything. Lip products are something I absolutely never finish but this month I finished two; a Stila Lipgloss that is super sticky but was the prettiest color and a Buxom lipstick. I received this as a sample on Black Friday two years ago and used it at least once a week from then on. It is the perfect color and I will be repurchasing this in the full size as soon as possible. I also used the Elf Natural Lash Kit at formal last weekend. I love their lashes but the glue is awfu. I would highly suggest getting a different lash glue when using their lashes.
