Welcome to my March Favourites post! I hope you all had a lovely March! Despite the weather being a bit rubbish for us over here in the UK, my March has been a pretty good one.
So here are my favourite things from the month:
Tesco – Jumpsuit
I picked this gorgeous jumpsuit up from Tesco (for £22) for a wedding I went to, the other week. It has a zip on the back and ties around the front, and is really comfy. It isn’t something I would normally wear but I got a lot of compliments on it at the wedding, and I’ll definitely be wearing it again.
Coconut Lane – Jumper
This gorgeous Nap Queen jumper from Coconut Lane is super comfy and I absolutely love the colour. The jumper is £28, but you can use my discount code – stephloves20 – and get 20% off.
They sell all kinds of other gorgeous bits including stationery, laptop covers, phone cases, socks, key rings, jewelry, etc. Why not check them out here? And don’t forget to use my code for a discount!
Three of my friends and I went for lunch at Slattery’s, earlier on in March. I always leave wondering why I don’t go more often. The atmosphere is calm and chill, and the food and service are outstanding.
I had a jacket potato with cheese and beans followed by the Wicked Chocolate Sampler.
I can’t recommend Slattery’s enough for an afternoon lunch. It really is wonderful!
Dockyard – Spinningfields, Manchester
I’ve been here a couple of times before. I love the interiors; it has such an industrial and fun feel to it. As it sports an old school pinball machine and football table, you could quite easily spend all day here and not get bored.
The food is amazing; I had The Mac burger with sweet potato fries, and it was lovely.
Located right on the River Irwell with gorgeous décor and an outdoor seating area… what more could you ask for?!
Museum of Science and Industry, Manchester
Visit a museum was part of my “self-love challenge”. I used to come to the Museum of Science and Industry as a kid as part of school often and I hadn’t been for years; so my dad said he would come with me for a day out.
There is a suggested donation of £3 when you walk into the museum but other than that, it is completely free. There’s lots to see and do, and so much going on for the kids too!
There are cafes dotted around the museum, as well as picnic areas if you decide to take lunch with you.
Despite being 28 years old and going with my dad, this was a fantastic day out. I really enjoyed myself, and my dad was in his element too. It’s definitely a great day out for people of all ages!
Inateck – Laptop Shoulder Bag
I got this gorgeous bag from Inateck for the laptop a few weeks ago and I haven’t looked back at my old bag since!
It’s a beautiful colour and so compact, but still manages to accommodate my big, clunky laptop within it, along with the charger, my mouse AND my tablet.
The bag comes in a lovely branded protective case. It has an adjustable padded shoulder strap which is detachable, allowing the bag to be both a shoulder bag and a sleeve. It is made from spill-resistant, Eco-friendly material and is lined internally with a soft flannel lining (which I spent a good 20 minutes stroking when I first got the bag).
I can’t recommend Inateck products enough. I will definitely be getting some more of their products for my new laptop when that laptop arrives.
I’ve spent a lot of this month watching Harry Potter back-to-back, so my movie suggestion for this month is Rex.
This film just came out on DVD; I picked it up the other day whilst I was in the supermarket.
It’s based on a true story of a young Marine corporal (Megan Leavey) whose unique discipline and bond with her military combat dog saved many lives during their deployment in Iraq.
I cried through the majority of this film. It’s amazing, shocking, sad, elating; the mixture of feelings I had from beginning to end was crazy! But it’s a great film. I definitely recommend watching it if you haven’t, so far.
I hope you’ve enjoyed some of my March Favourites. Why not leave me comments below on some of yours? 🙂
