Today I’m going to share with you my March favorites! I’ve definitely been super busy with school, so unfortunately I didn’t blog much this month. Or the past few months, really. But I do have a few favorites I’d like to share with you!
My first beauty favorite is this foaming cleanser I bought when I was at Marukai, which is a Japanese supermarket. I’m not really sure if there is a brand name, because even the super market just called it Whip Premium, haha. It was on special for only $5!
This is the first foaming cleanser (and first Japanese cleanser) I’ve tried, and I really love the texture! It lathers up really really well and I feel like it does a great job at getting all of the dirt from my face after a long day. It also works well with my sensitive skin, which is another huge plus!
My next beauty favorite this past month has been the Urban Decay Naked Palette!
I found myself gravitating towards this palette all month, and in particular to the shades Sin and Naked. I use Sin all over the lid, with Naked in the crease, and they’re perfect for everyday makeup looks! Like the other Urban Decay shadows I have, this palette’s shadows are high quality and highly pigmented. They’re super smooth and easy to blend too!
My last beauty favorite for this month is the Canmake Your Lip Only Gloss in 01.
I bought this lipgloss when I went to Japan last year, and lately I’ve really enjoyed using it over various lip tints! It’s a clear gloss that turns pink on the lips, which looks good over my pink lip tints. The texture of this gloss is also really nice, as it’s not sticky and feels slightly moisturizing through the wear as well.
My non-beauty favorite for this month is a new place that I visited: Portland, Oregon!
There were so many different things that I loved about this city! It has awesome public transportation, great food, and lots of parks to take pictures in.
One of the things I really loved was Washington Park and the Japanese Garden nearby! Both were so beautiful and very peaceful.

The cherry trees were also blooming and it was so pretty! I had never seen cherry blossoms in person before as they don’t grow where I live, so I was really happy that I got to experience that.
Another standout was the food! My sister and I ate so much, haha. We tried Voodoo Donuts as well, which was awesome! I love sweets, haha.
Powell’s Books was also amazing! I didn’t take pictures inside because I was just so amazed at how large the store was, but I did get a cute t-shirt!
So that’s it for my favorites this month! What have you guys been loving? Let me know in the comments!
