The 4 Best Things I Bought in March

March was an interesting month. I hate to continue to put myself down for spending somewhat carelessly, so let’s just say it was an”experimental” month. Trying new items is a good thing….right? Needless to say, March led to some killer purchases, most of which I was originally hesitant about. I can now say that these were some of my best decisions of the month.

H&M Bell Sleeve Sweater

Out of my four item snag at the mall in March, I was least excited about this sweater. It might look like your basic fall staple. I thought so too; that is, until I styled it three different ways in one week for three very different occasions. It has quickly become one of the most worn, most versatile pieces in my closet and is perfect for days like today when Spring can’t decide if it’s here to stay or not. I first wore it with jean shorts and a necklace for brewery hopping in downtown Wilmington, the following week paired with my go-to work pants and a denim shirt, and finally my birthday weekend with a pair of boyfriend denim jeans and casual sneakers. At only $25, get this sweater!

Perfect Protein Bar

At $2.50 a pop, I had noticed these bars in Trader Joe’s refrigerated section for a while but couldn’t quite grasp the price tag for a single protein bar. During a lighter grocery week, I decided to give them a try and to say I am hooked would be an understatement. Different than other protein bars, these stay refrigerated and pack upwards of 15g of protein per serving. Pairing the Peanut Butter or Chocolate Chip flavor with a banana in the morning has been all I need to hold me over for 5-6 hours until lunch. Yes, just from a protein bar!! They are delicious, proceed with caution because you will inevitably be addicted!

Colgate Optic White Toothbrush with Whitening Pen

Colgate Whitening Pen

One of my good friends has the best teeth. They are always perfectly white with what seemed like minimal effort. Added bonus? She’s an avid coffee drinker. When I saw her using the Colgate Optic Whitening Pen, I immediately “added to cart.” I started to notice a difference in just two days of use both morning and night. The pen is perfect for teeth too sensitive for the infamous Crest Whitestrips and is a quick, no-brainer step in your morning or nightly routine. Just two twists and a quick paint on the teeth will have your teeth on their way to pearly white in no time.

Indoor PlantsĀ 

Plants make me happy. Indoor plants, outdoor plants, flowers, succulents, greenery – you name it, I have grown to love it. Now, I really haven’t grown to take care of it and I think that’s why I love little indoor plants the most. One water a week to one water a month is all it takes for them to thrive. When Hayden and I visited Logan’s, we got a little jade plant in a cute nautical knot planter and a snake plant which I ended up planting in this pot I had mentioned I got for Christmas (and am now even more obsessed with.) Something about walking in to a house with plants just makes it feel a little more like home.
