Loving Lately | March Favorites

If you're looking for a mixed bag of favorite products over the last month, then you've come to the right place! From apps to yogurt, I'm sharing a few things that made me happy so far in March. 

Trader Joe's already made meals

Coming up with weeknight meals that don't require more than 20 minutes of cook time and prep is hard, so for the last two weeks Gary and I have been picking up already made meals from Trader Joe's and then adding a fresh veggie on the side. We love that they are portion controlled, not in the freezer section and take under 10 minutes to heat & serve. One of our favorites is the Greek style chicken, with orzo, spinach and feta! I was planning on doing a Trader Joe's favorite post, let me know if that's something you'd be interested in! 

Fage Greek Yogurt

I have been a Chobani fan for a long time, but with all the extra sugar in some of their yogurts, I wanted to find a better option. Recently I've been buying the bigger portions of Fage Total o% and then adding some fruit & honey for flavor. Keeps me full until lunch! 

Wunderlist



I first mentioned Wunderlist last March and ever since taking an organization and time management training last month, it has been at the forefront of my mind! I have a full post on how to stay organized with all your different roles planned for next week so stay tuned on how to utilize this on-line app! 

MAC Lipstick

You may have seen on my Instagram on Tuesday that I picked up a new MAC lipstick shade. I am almost out of Snob (super pretty pink) & have been using Kinda Sexy (brown orange) non-stop so I wanted to pick up another color - Angel it was! It's a light, nude pink that's perfect for every day wear! 

J.Crew Sales

At my previous job, I was working in the same building as the mall...which you can imagine was terrible for my wallet, but great for my closet! Because of my new office location, I'm hardly ever at the mall anymore, so when we stopped by J.Crew a few weeks ago I was pretty excited to see their jewelry on sale! I picked up the above bracelet & pretty necklace (not pictured) - total price for both $25!! 

Fringe-everything! 


I, along with everyone else, have been loving the fringe trend. But for me, I can't wear it...I think it looks sort of wonky on me, so I opted for accessories!! I picked up the above sandals for Spring & Summer and I also scooped up this fringe cross body (under $30!!)

What have you been loving this month?

  1. I would love to see your TJ favorites! Those freezer meals make me so happy- nice to have something delicious and a bit of extra time to boot :)

  2. I need to start eating Greek yogurt for breakfast! Definitely going to pick up that one! And love Angel! I got it in the lip gloss for the gala and I wear it all the time. Yes to fringe everything! <3, Pamela Sequins & Sea Breezes

  3. I enjoy Fage more than chobani too. It is just pure yogurt, nothing else. So in love with fringe accessories, fun way to wear the trend. Can't wait to hear your time management post.

  4. I have Fage yogurt every day for a snack and love it. My favorite way is to add a scoop of peanut butter, a dash of vanilla and some honey then stir it up. It tastes amazing! Those fringe sandals are adorable! I would be in so much trouble if I worked so close to the mall!

  5. A Trader Joe's post would be awesome! That meal looks so delicious - I am thinking it would be perfect divided up for lunches.

  6. I used to wear Angel! And to be honest, you just reminded me how much I loved it. I think I may need to buy it again! And I'm with you on fringe accessories. It feels a bit much to have on clothes!

  7. Loving the fringe sandals--they're gorgeous!
    That greek chicken sounds good. My only worry about packaged foods like this is the sodium content. It's usually astronomical (not sure what it is on that stuff). MG is sodium conscious and has made me more so, too...and it's amazing when you look at the sodium content in things. Sometimes one serving is your entire day's worth of sodium...or MORE! Eeek!

  8. Fage is my favorite, along with Siggi yogurt. So good! I saw those sandals at Tj Maxx and loved them!

    ReplyDelete
  9. Fage is the best! I have it every day for a snack.. with some granola or kashi cereal mixed in!

  10. Love those fringe sandals for spring!

  11. So many of the popular yogurt brands have tons of sugar in them but Fage is really good. It is also a lot easier to just add fruit or honey. :-) We have had that chicken meal many times too, it is delicious! The chicken carne one is good too. I also love those sandals and those lipsticks sound pretty. :-)

  12. Sugar in yogurt is killer, going with plain and adding in your own in natural form is the way to go! I have to download Wunderlist right now, thank you for the reminder!

    ReplyDelete
  13. Fage is my favorite greek yogurt too! That bracelet is so pretty and I love those fringe sandals!

  14. my loving lately is up tomorrow! you can never go wrong with a mac lipstick, i swear!! i love angel.

  15. i agree on the fringe thing - being just an accessory for me too. i got some sandals from j.crew similar to those! and i'll have to check out the angel color. except i just bought a kylie lip kit so i need to resist for a little ha. also fage greek yogurt is SO good - i love the honey one! try the 2% for a little more (good) fat and like 10 extra calories. i realized that one tastes SO much better. :)

  16. Um yes to everything fringe! I wish we had a Trader Joe's close to us because those 10 minute meals sound right up my alley and look yummy! Also I need to pick up some spring Mac lipstick colors!

  17. I am LOVING fringe too. I used Wunderlist years ago at a job and enjoyed it..for home and blog related things I rely on a calendar and planner all in paper form, for me...it's just better to be that way- it's like I work better seeing it on paper and crossing things off.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Loving your finds! Meals under 20 mins are hard to come by. I'll have to check out the Trader Joe meals. Love fringe too but I agree, if it isn't an accessory on me I kind of feel drowned out. Maybe it's because I'm just shorter. I have a fringe bathing suit top and crossbody bag. I'm going to check out those sandals now! Beautifully Candid

    ReplyDelete
  19. Interested to learn more about that Wunderlist app! I need something to keep work and home organized! It's funny you posted that Mac lippie pic at the same time I was looking online at them! The last time I was in store, I let the saleslady talk me into their lip crayon and I'm more of a lipstick person.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Yes, do a post on the app! That sounds so interesting! And I'm loving the Mac lipstick picture--my next lipstick purchase will be a pretty pink color

  24. Fringe doesn't look quite right on me either, so don't worry girl! Gimme allllll the MAC lipsticks and YUM to Greek yogurt! I have my "Uncle Jesse" yogurt every morning for breakfast. Love how it's packed full of protein too <3

  25. LOVE the pigments on MAC lipsticks! I so wish we had a trader jo in Canada!!!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Oh yum to the TJ's meals! I love Fage with just some fresh fruit to cut down on carbs and sugars. Chobani plain was on sale this week, so I tried those - not quite as thick as Fage, but close and similar stats, so I felt good about it.

    ReplyDelete
  27. How have I not seen this ready made meals from Trader Joes?! I'm going to have to stop and search for these, this greek chicken sounds so good. And I don't even like chicken. And yes to all things fringe!

  29. Yes yes yes to fringe! I just ordered a pair of fringe sandals from J Crew and can't wait for them to get here - and for the weather to cooperate so I can wear them!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Definitely looking forward to next week's organization post...I've heard so many great things about Wanderlust but have been a bit intimidated to try it out myself since I feel like I wouldn't know where to begin!

    ReplyDelete
  31. I just started using Wunderlist last week and it is CHANGING MY LIFE. I love it!

    ReplyDelete
  32. I'm MAC-lipstick-obsessed, for sure! And that TJ's meal sounds awesome + easy- exactly what I'm looking for on busy weeknights!

  33. Yay - loving those sandals! I think it's time I "graduate" from Nyx to a big girl tube of MAC and "Angel" sounds like the perfect shade. It's time for a TJ's run again and this orzo meal is definitely going on the list thanks to you :)

    ReplyDelete
  34. I would love to see a Trader Joes post!! I always go for my favorites and maybe one or two new things but I like seeing what other people like so I can discover something new!!! Those sandals are so cute!

    ReplyDelete
  35. I saw your Insta of the Mac Lipsticks and I'm not ashamed to admit I was drooling!

  36. Yes, I want a post on your faves from Trader Joes! I tend to shop mainly at Mrs. Greens or Whole Foods, but I also have a Trader Joes near my house, which I sometimes pop into. I can't wait to read your post on organizational tips because as I told you in a former post, you've inspired me to get a planner. I couldn't find the Erin Condren one anywhere and I didn't want to wait to order it, so I got one that's practical enough to get me started and it has helped me immensely. I kind of feel like my old self again because I used to be so systematic and regimented with planning, so thank you for motivating me in that area again! I hope you're having a great week so far, beautiful!

  37. Wunderlist is one of the most used apps on my phone.

    Fage is my preferred greek yogurt. MFD likes the triple zero that just came out, so I buy both!

    Yes to a Trader Joe's post!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Trader Joe's and WholeFoods are my pre-cooked, go-to solution for "dinner for dummies" (and dinner for those who hate to cook!). I agree- I can do fringe in small doses not on clothes, but I admire anyone who can pull it off! Make today work, Rachel -CubicleCouture

    ReplyDelete
  39. Man, I wish we had a Trader Joe's! I feel like anything boho, fringe included, just don't look good on me either. I thought I was alone. LOL! I will have to settle for some cute accessories too, these sandals are adorable!

  44. I love the JCrew bracelet that you picked up - so pretty! I'm so jealous of all of you that have Trader Joe's easily accessible, those ready-made-meals sound fantastic. Can't wait to hear more about that app, too!

  45. I wish those lipsticks were all mine, and cute sandals.

  47. I'd love to see a Trader Joe's post! I went yesterday when I was out of town and grabbed a few things but I need to know more now that we are getting one.

    ReplyDelete
  48. I can't wait to read your post on better time management, I think that's something that we can always work better on! And thanks for the great lipstick color recs! My friend sent me some MAC lipsticks for Christmas, and I'm so obsessed! I'll have to think about trying out a few of these!

    ReplyDelete
  49. We love Fage and add it to our morning smoothies too. Those sandals are super cute and so is the bracelet.

    ReplyDelete
  50. YES please do a Trader Joe's post. We just got one, the first one in Oklahoma. I haven't been yet, I'm waiting for the crowds to die down haha. I'd love to know what you love.

  53. I go through phases with MAC. One minute I use a ton of their products, the next they hide away in my drawers for months. haha I have been using a few of their shadow singles lately. (:

  54. The Greek Style Chicken looks so good! And I am crushing over these fringe sandals! I think I am going to need those for when Spring decides to arrive here in Chicago :) XO

  55. So I've actually never been to a Trader Joe's haha- but the more I hear about it, the more I think I need to make the 35 minute trek over there every once in awhile!

    ReplyDelete
  56. I LOVE the spring fringe trend, but I haven't pulled the trigger on anything (mostly sandals) yet. I'm waiting until I find a pair I simply cannot live without!

    ReplyDelete
  57. Picked up that same bracelet recently! Wearing it a ton too! I can't wait to read more about your organization tips- always need those in my life!

  58. YES YES YES to the Trader Joe's posts! I LOVE Trader Joe's!! I rarely buy prepared foods...but....that Greek chicken sounds interesting. Is the sodium count sky high though? I still might look into it for those nights when I DON'T feel like cooking! Thanks for sharing! xoxo catchatwithcarenandcody

  59. Love all of these things!! I will be looking forward to your post on Wunderlust....I seriously have been on the struggle bus trying to stay organized

  60. Mac lipstick is my FAVORITE. I love their wide range of colors and how moisturizing it is. Need to try your colors!!

  61. Ok how funny--I literally have had the BCBG wrap dress in my cart all week! I am so tempted to press the "check-out" button! Mac is by far my favorite lipstick formula and I just love their color range! Enjoy your weekend love!

  62. i am with you, not a fan of fringe on myself personally, but i could totally do those sandals. super cute! and yes to the trader joes favourites, i love seeing what other people buy there (or anywhere, actually). i'll have to check out that greek chicken meal because seriously, anything that takes longer than 20 minutes on a weekday aint gonna happen.

    ReplyDelete
  63. I love MAC lipsticks, they have such a great formula. I have so many of them- probably too many haha :)

  66. Comon, I am in love with Greek Yogurt but not fat free. That is all about Greek Yogurt. I will stay with full, full flavor. Nice fringe sandals.

  67. I love MAC lipstick! Angel is one of my favorites, it's so versatile :)

  68. Those fringe sandals are so cute! I think Angel was my first ever MAC lipstick- it's so pretty, I probably need to get rid of it because it's so old now & get a new one!

    ReplyDelete
  69. So many great things here. I need that Angel Mac lipstick and perhaps another new Mac shade. I must try those packaged meals though. And girl like you I cannot resist fringe or tassel accessories, especially in shoes and bags. I need more lol.

    ReplyDelete
  70. Love the fringe look too! Especially on accessories! I wish we had a TJ's store near us! So many yummy things people find there!
