March Love List

Blogger Immy May Covent Garden London

Oh HEY April dallin’. So nice to see ya with your light evenings, warm (ish) breeze and blossom trees. U da best.

Do you ever ponder on how lucky we are to have seasons? Blessed with a different version of the world every few months, always bringing with it such joy and warmth of excitement for something new. Every season is beautiful for different reasons, but I especially LOVE Spring.

Maybe it is due to the light evenings fixing all my blogger woes (AMEN sistas), or just the dreamy explosion of blossom trees and blooms across the city… Or the cheeky lil Lidnt bunnies I keep treating myself to teehee. >:)

March was a surprisingly lovely month. I thought I would feel down in the dumps after returning from Thailand, but actually I feel motivated. Motivated to work towards my craziest dreams, put in 112039% effort and make it happen. Of course, the thirst to see the world is still there, but I feel content with the idea of spacing my adventures out over time rather than one long trip.

Anyway, back to March. Here’s what I have been loving…

1.

BAKING

Gluten Free Banana Loaf

I lost ma baking mojo for a while. Mainly because I still haven’t kitted out our gaff with enough baking bits and bobs, or maybe because I just haven’t allowed myself time to potter in the kitchen and create something de-lish just because.

However, after a trip to Waitrose with a voucher I found from Christmas (GET IN son), I treated myself a whole loada baking goodies which got me craving long lazy Sunday afternoons in the kitchen.

Over the month I have whipped up some dreamy lemon Easter biscuits, a free from banana loaf and a big batch of choc chip cookies. It has felt damn goooood. What shall I bake next?

 

2.

SAVING THE DOLLAR

I like to think I have done a bit of saving over the past month.

… Saying that, I have literally just hit purchase on a corset and tutu for Friday nights Moulin Rouge Secret Cinema antics (oops) hehe. But in terms of my Pret /coffee shop addiction, things have deffo improved. I haven’t stepped in the shop ONCE and I think that deserves a pat on the back, don’t ya?

My new routine is a Monday visit to M&S for salad bits, cereal, tea bags and milk. Although I love the sassy cafe life, it did not chose me. *weeps* I could obvs swap my M&S for Aldi to save more, but y’know, gotta treat yo’self.

3.

GARNIER ERRYTHANG

Garnier-Skincare-Range

Over the past few months I have been attempting to up my skincare regime. It started with the Garnier Micellar water, then the moisturiser then I completely pushed the boat out and picked up the cleanser. Without even realising, all my skin care is now Garnier and I LOVE it.

As my skin is pretty sensitive, Micellar water has been my absolute savior for about a year now. I love how versatile and soothing it is, but I thought I should step up my game and give ma skin some real TLC with cleanser and moisturiser.  I checked out the Moisture Bomb day cream, which my skin lapped up, so I thought I would treat it to the cleanser too. My skin is genuinely V happy because of this. I love finding a good lil skincare groove!

4.

KIMCHEE

Last week, Matt and I ventured over to Kimchee after work to check out their new Kings Cross haunt. I am going to be totally honest here, I wasn’t expecting all that much.

I hadn’t really heard of the restaurant before and I had never tried or even heard about Korean grub. But oh wow. It was delightful. Not only did I love a date night with my chum, but the restaurant itself was beautiful, chic, sassy AND the food was dreamy.

My favourite was the green tea and white chocolate mousse with a side of almond ice cream, oooft. Kings Cross looks amazing at the mo, the perfect spot for post-work dinner / drinks in the sunshine.

5.

NEW ZARA JACKET

I have had the same three jackets on rotation for the few years. My trusty winter coat I bought back in ’14, a leather jacket and a Boden number that I just fell in love with.

However, they were all dark colours. I fancied something a little different, a light, fresh update to ‘Spring’ up my wardrobe a little. I stumbled across the most beaut, classic neutral jacket from Zara and fell in love. I felt sassy, kinda like a wizard (cheers for that, Matt) but it really compliments an otherwise casual outfit. Until I wore it out on Saturday and got black all over the arm. Darn et!

6.

LIGHT EVENINGS

Oh bebeh, this long lasting daylight is THE ONE. I have been lapping it up, heading out after work, taking all the snaps and just feeling the happy feels.

7.

H&M BLUE JEANS

Immy May H&M Jeans

If you follow me over on Instagram, you may have noticed that the star of the show has been my blue jeans. I have been absolutely o b s e s s e d. They fit perfectly and are SO comfy. If you are looking for a lush pair of Spring / Summer jeans, have a ganders at these H&M babies.

8.

A VISIT FROM MY POPS

My dad ventured up to London to see us a few weeks back and it made me so happy. We strolled round the Tate Britain, had lunch at the Rail House Cafe and mooched down Portobello Road in the sunshine, finishing with some Pearl & Groove goodness for the cherry on top of the most glorious day.

9.

THE BLOGGERS MARKET

The Bloggers Market Pastel Paradice

Last Saturday Jordan and I hit the Bloggers Market #4. Started up by a wonderful clan of blogging babes, This event always brings everyone together from all corners of the internet to sift through clothes, have a good chinwag and nibble on sweet treats. Most definitely a perfect way to spend Saturday afternoon, I got some lovely bits and pieces too! Inc. the most dreamy Honeywell Bakes biscuit hehe.

10.

EXCITING TIMES

SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO my best friend got friggin’ engaged! It was just all sorts of amazing feelings and love and uuugh I am so bloomin’ happy for her and her lovely fiance. I am also mildly (read: VERY) looking forward to being maid of honour. Crazy hen partaay planning, wedding fairs, dresses, errythang. I cannot wait for all the fun times to come. I guess this means we are actual adults now?

11.

GIRL VS CANCER TIT TEES

Girl Vs Cancer TITTEE Lady Lumps

Moments like this are why I am so proud to be involved in the blogging community. Over the past few months, support for a fellow blogger Lozza from Girl Stole London has been through the bladdy roof. With a nasty cancer diagnosis, comes inevitable problems and hurdles to jump over. But amazing as Lauren is, gaaal did she jump.  Whilst battling the cretin that is cancer, she has become an entrepreneur and also a figure of hope and support, breaking down taboo around cancer and bringing women everywhere together to support the cause with her genius tit-tees.  Whadda legend. Get yourself one here.

It is now my birthdaay month, I turn 24. What the bloomin’ ek! WHEN did that happen? Feels like yesterday I was writing my 23 post. It should be fun tho. Mumma an I are off to the Moulin Rouge Secret Cinema on Friday, Rugby on Saturday then a day full of frolics, cake and prosecco on Sunday (I hope) hehe. We also have Easter weekend down in Devon, THE CURSED CHILD *screams with excitement* and a lovely gals weekend for more birthday celebrations hehe.
