March Favourites

Behold!-My latest favourites from the world of entertainment, beauty and eh..walks around Dublin.

Game of Thrones, the third series has just started up and I'm loving it. If you haven't seen any of this epic show, you need to get watching- the characters (especially some of the female characters) are amazing, the story lines are completely convoluted yet so exciting and the scenery and settings are just incredible. Plus, DRAGONS!

The Mindy Project
I mentioned this in my Recently Read Part 2 post, I started watching this show after reading Mindy Kaling's book and also loving her work on the US Office. This sitcom about Obstetrician Mindy follows her disastrous love life from one hilariously awful date to the next. Lots of great characters in this too and it's just very funny. You'll like it if you already like....

New Girl! Ah, Zooey, I love you so. New Girl has been around for a while too, this is the second series that's currently being shown and it's just been confirmed that there'll be a third. If you haven't seen it yet, it's about Jessica Day- a very cute and quirky school teacher who moves in with three equally weird male housemates and the general hilarious consequences of that. This show is just so great. There's something I find really comforting about it- whenever I'm not feeling too brilliant Hubster pops on an episode for me, makes me a cup of tea and suddenly things are a bit better..the power of harmless comedy :)

The Walking Dead
Not so harmless is this show about the (undoubtedly unavoidable) zombie apocalypse and a particular group of survivors. This is based on the comic books of the same name and is also in it's third series. It's been hugely successful since it started and it's easy to see why- it's just very well made and has it's viewers constantly on the edge of their collective seats. This is also another great one for strong female characters and if zombies are your thing (if not then they should be!) then you definitely need to check this out.


I've been reading loads lately and have come across some excellent books, which you can read more of in my Recently read posts HERE and HERE but I haven't had a chance to review this little treasure yet- I'll go into it properly in my next book round up but if you're looking for a good read between now and then, please check out 'Me Before you' by JoJo Moyes..this is just so great, I had been avoiding it because I thought it was chick-lit and I generally have to be in the right frame of mind for that but this was completly not what I expected and I could not put it down. Excellent stuff.

Walks in the sunshine- the park and the beach

I've really been enjoying the recent sunshine and have been making the most of it with walks in the park and at the sea. Ireland really is a beautiful country when we get the right weather :)

Cath Kidston Strawberries iPhone Case
My phone is pretty much always adorned with Cath Kidston's cute and kitsch designs so I had to get this new Spring/Summer case when I saw it online- it's such a cheery pattern, I love it.

Camomile Tea

I picked this tea up this week to try and encourage more restful sleep, so far I'm loving the taste and I do find it quite relaxing to sip this while reading my kindle every night. Also- check out the prettiness of the packaging..good old M & S.

Beauty stuffs

Clarins Lip Perfector Gloss
My new favourite lip product, which is saying something for me. I wrote a full review of this HERE.
Kiehl's Creme de Corps
I mentioned this in my Post Hospital Recovery Kit post and will be doing a full review on it soon, this is a really, really great body moisturiser. Pricey but so worth it.
Dainty Doll Blush in My Girl
I did a full review of this super bargainous blush HERE..I adore this, such a pretty colour, so pigmented and beautiful on. I've since picked up a couple of other shades to try and another of these for my friend's upcoming birthday present.
Topshop Polish in Celestial
As I've previously mentioned about a million times, I love pastel blue polishes and I also love Topshop nail varnishes so this is a match made in heaven really. I got this as part of a birthday present last year and I love it- it's the perfect Spring shade, blue with a good whack of lilac in it, so very pretty.

And that's my lot! Let me know in the comments if you agree with any of my picks and what your own current favourites are!


  1. Think I'll be pulling out my season 1 New Girl boxset, for viewing tonight, after reading this - love that programme :D

    1. It's so brilliant isn't it?! I really must get the box set actually.. :)

    2. Oh do, I love boxsets, great for bad weather days. :)

  2. I'm late to the Game of Thrones TV party so am only on Season One but I love it.

    I read Me Before You from beginning to end in one sitting and was in tears for most of it. Such a heartbreaking but brilliant book.

    I agree, a bit of sunshine (even if it's still cold) really does remind us how beautiful Ireland is. I've been spending as much time outdoors as possible lately.
