Monthly Favorites | March

It’s time for monthly favorites again. At the end of each month,  I share things that have made me happy, new discoveries, or recommendations that I find worthwhile. Enjoy.

1. My bike*! Obviously. It’s been so fun to be able to ride my bike to work and around the neighborhood. I can’t wait for the weather to be a little bit more stable (aka dry!) around here.

2. We made Sauerkraut twice this month. I love it mixed up with mashed potatoes (go ahead, try it!) as a side with bratwurst or goulash.

3.I finally got my  hands on the  trial size version of IT Cosmetics CC Cream SPF 50+* (which is only  available online and  seems to be out of stock a lot!). I had  wanted to try this CC cream for the longest time and I must say, it was worth the wait. I really like it. I might even splurge on the full size version next time.

4. I’ve been trying out this Love Beauty Planet Refreshing Coconut Water Deodorant* and I actually love the smell and so far it’s been holding up quite well, too.

5.  A MUST in my March favorites list: Marble Cake.

6. My new running shirt, which I got for my birthday. Don’t you love it? :)

7. My friend Susi gave me a HydroFlask Water Bottle*, which I had been eyeing for a while, for my birthday and I LOVE it. It keeps my beverages cold or hot and it looks pretty doing so!

What was one of your favorite things this month?

  1. Awww love your favorites and that shirt is hilarious 🤣 I’m so glad you are enjoying your new bike and that the deodorant is holding up for you! It smells SO good so I was bummed it didn’t work on me!

    Wishing you all the best for the weekend ahead ❤️

    1. That’s a real bummer that that deodorant didn’t work for you.

  2. I might check out the deodorant, I’m so curious about it! Your shirt is awesome. And marble cake is the best kind of cake hands down. YUM.

  3. I’ve heard such great things about the Hydroflask! Maybe I should have asked for one for my birthday!

    1. I was skeptical about the hype round the hydroflask, but it really is a great water bottle!

  4. We had sauerkraut twice this month too. And can you eat any other way?!
    I am looking for a new cc cream and also deodorant so I have to check it out if available in Germany.
    Byebye Marche, hello April

    1. Ha, I am glad to know you also eat sauerkraut with mashed potatoes :)

  5. Hah! I love that shirt so much. Too cute. I wish I had a bike; granted, there really aren’t that many places to bike TO where I live…


    1. Oh that’s a bummer that you can’t really ride a bike where you live…

  6. I’ve recently started eating (and liking) sauerkraut – we make Reuben sandwiches and that’s one of the ingredients! My mom and grandma always made sauerkraut with kielbasa growing up, and I hated it. It’s so funny how food preferences can change.

    1. It really is strange how food preferences change over time.. sauerkraut and brussels sprouts is something that I’d eat, but didn’t really care about as a child, but now I can’t get enough of it :)

  7. I love Sauerkraut with mashed potatoes. One of my memories growing up is of my Grandma making it early in the morning with brown gravy and meatballs (Frikadellen). Then we would take it with us to the vineyards and at lunch time everyone sat on buckets eating it in the vineyards. It tastes 100 times better that way….hahaha.

    1. Yes, I love that you also love sauerkraut with mashed potatoes!!

  8. That half marathon shirt is awesome!!!

    Mmm, I love sauerkraut and can see how it would take great mixed with mashed potatoes!!

    1. I laughed so hard when I opened the t-shirt gift :)

  9. I started using Love Beauty & Planet’s deodorant last month and it gave me a rash. I’m so bummed because it’s such an affordable price for natural deodorant (and such a pretty container!). Womp!

    Favorite thing from this month… probably my new foundation brush! I’ve always just used my fingers and just started using a brush like a normal human being, and it’s SO NICE!

    1. Ah, that’s a bummer that the deodorant gave you a rash… I hate when that happens.

  10. I’m so excited you’ve enjoyed the CC cream from IT Cosmetics. I’ve been looking for a new “foundation” and might need to try this. Also, that is an awesome bike. I wish I had more bike paths near my home. It’s only very steep mountain hills and I’m not at that level of fitness yet. LOL

    1. I didn’t have a bike for the longest time for the same reasons… I just didn’t have any bike paths near my house, but that has changed since we moved.
