Hello lovelies! Yet another month in 2018 has flown by quickly. In Ohio, the temperatures are starting to rise very slowly, but we’re getting there! March has honestly been the month of zero inspiration because of the not-so-fun weather. I’ve been ordering a lot of spring clothes and accessories. Once the weather warms up I’ll be styling them and sharing new outfits on the blog. For now, today’s post is the (late) March edition of Flamingo’s Top 4, so keep reading if you want to know my four favorite things from this past month!
1. Pretty Pink Nails
Pink nails have been my go-to this past month, especially light pink. I’ve been stocking up on all kinds of pink OPI nail polishes that I find at Marshalls for $4 a bottle. I can’t decide if my favorite is Suzi Shops & Island Hops, the bubblegum pink shade pictured below, or The Color That Keeps on Giving, a pale, pearl pink.
2. NYX Butter Gloss in Merengue
Now that it’s spring and I’m wearing a lot of pink lip colors, I’m reaching for this one more than anything. I love to layer it over other pink hues, or even wear it alone!
3. Grace, Not Perfection by Emily Ley
I received Emily Ley’s book, Grace, Not Perfection, in my Easter basket this year, and I’ve hardly been able to put it down. Something I seriously struggle with is trying to create a life that I deem “perfect.” There’s nothing wrong with being the best version of yourself, but I think sometimes it’s easy to become overwhelmed with trying to reach something nonexistent, perfection. This book addresses that, as well as embraces simplicity, like it says on the cover, lol. Honestly, I’m so bad at explaining the contents of books, so if you’re looking for a good read and you feel like you get overwhelmed with trying to be perfect, check out this book!
4. Striped Kate Spade Sam
This post wouldn’t be complete without mentioning my striped Kate Spade Sam Bag. It’s all over my Instagram and I even wrote a blog post about it! I’m seriously obsessed with the bag because it’s the perfect everyday bag. It holds all the essentials, like a water bottle, wallet, sunglasses, and if you’re like me, a bunch of miscellaneous lip products!
I guess with it being spring (even though it doesn’t feel like it) I’m really loving pink! What are some of your favorite things from the month of March? Let me know on Instagram, Facebook, or Pinterest!
