Welcome to March Favorites, birthday edition. Where are all my fellow Pisces? This month’s favorites consist mostly of fun birthday things from last week and this past month. Enjoy!
Birthday cake: nothing like a rose-covered cake with your name on it 🙂
Beauty and the Beast: We went to see Beauty & the Beast last weekend and it was such a great adaptation! Even though I kept expecting Emma Watson to at some point be like, Harry, no! all panicked (she did not) I thought she did a wonderful job as Belle. Visually the movie was captivating and the story was fun and dramatic at all the right moments. Highly recommend for any Disney fans.
The Silkworm: I cannot praise this book enough. The entire Cormoran Strike series has been so good, and this one was no exception. You can check out my review here. I had no idea who the killer would be, and when I finally found out I was shocked, in the best way. It was thrilling and held my attention the entire way through. Robin and Strike truly are such a great team.
Magnolia Journal: Chip and Joanna Gaines’ magazine the Magnolia Journal came out recently and I finally got a copy. I thought it would be just a home design magazine but it has everything from design to family, food, fashion and more. If you enjoy watching Fixer Upper on HGTV, or just have any interest in home design, this is a great magazine to pick up. More on that and their book, coming soon 🙂
Street Tacos: my favorite tacos from my favorite restaurant. ‘Nuff said.
Spinach Pizza: What would a birthday be without pizza? 🙂 Spinach (pictured) and margherita are my favorite.
Zen Shorts: this sweet book was given to me as a gift. It’s a children’s book about a panda bear that teaches neighborhood children three ancient zen tales about life. It really is so thought-provoking that it’s one of those children’s-books that’s-also-for-adults. More on this book in an upcoming post on mindfulness.
David Bowie quote: “Aging is an extraordinary process where you become the person you always should have been.” Timeless. Wise words to remember, especially on your birthday.
And that’s a wrap on March, Pisces season, and this month’s favorites 🙂
