Monthly Favourites: March 2016

Monthly Favourites March 2016 UK Lifestyle Blog

SAY WHAAAAAAT? March, where you go?

I guess it’s already time to talk about my favourite bits and pieces for the month…

giving up: chocolate. I’m not going to lie, it has been a bit of a challenge (although not as much as I expected)….but I did it! I went a whole damn month without chocolate. Now where’s my Dairy Milk at? Watch my vlogs about the Dechox over on my Youtube channel.

preparing: for my driving test. AGH. SUCH FEAR. MUCH EMOTIONS. I am genuinely terrified that next month I’ll be taking my driving test, but I have to say that on the most part, I am feeling pretty good about my driving…it’s just those darn manoeuvres.

visiting: arundel. One of my favourite places to visit because it’s where you can wander around independent shops and eat rock cakes as big as your head. Read more about my little day out over here.

seeing: The Book Of Mormon! It was so good guys, I laughed so much and still have the songs in my head.

watching: Daredevil Season 2. I loved season 1, but season 2 took a little bit longer to grow on me. I’ve also been watching The Walking Dead which I am just adoring at the moment, but I am also terrified that the season finale is almost here and someone important is definitely going to die. Waaaa.

also watching: 10 Cloverfield Lane. Me and Liam went to see this with a work colleague and his girlfriend, and to be honest…the majority of the movie is pretty great, but the last 10-15 minutes were the worst. Booo.

also also watching: Batman Vs Superman. I’ll be honest, I wasn’t all that impressed.

reading: Nailbiter Vol 3. If you’re a fan of horror and crime comics, Nailbiter is an awesome read. Volume’s 1 and 3 are great – volume 2 is good. I am so tempted to get my hands on Volume 4 soon but I have sooo many other comics to catch up with. I’ve also been reading Daredevil: The Man Without Fear Ultimate Collection which has been a bit of a mixed bag so far.

eating: lots of fruit. So the upside of the no chocolate thing is that I have been eating more fruit (sometimes). I forget how tasty fruit can be. Especially red grapes and blackberries. Mmmm. I have unfortunately been counteracting this good behaviour by eating sweets, crumbles and more sugary delicacies, but still…NO CHOCOLATE, GUYS!

What’s made your March merry?

    Yay! I’m so happy you managed to get through March with no chocolate. You did well … I would’ve found it extremely difficult, so kudos to you.

    March is my birthday month. And my dad’s. And my nephews. So it was filled with birthdays! 🙂

      Thank you poppet! I did find it quite difficult but also rewarding 🙂 Hope you and your family had lovely birthdays. Most of our family birthdays are at the end of the year! x

    Congratulations on getting through March without chocolate, you should be super proud especially considering the final weekend fell over Easter! I definitely couldn’t do it! You 100% deserve the biggest share bar of dairy milk or galaxy!
