March Faves

March Faves

Hey all! I frequently get asked to share products I love and recommend so I am starting a series on my blog called #BalkaninasFave AKA {monthly favorites}. I plan to share some of my favorite products I am reaching for frequently of each month. 

If you have similar favorites or are inspired by mine use the hashtag #balkaninasfave on Instagram or Facebook so I can find and love it all! 


If you follow my Instagram @balkanina you'll know that this season I am all about naturals, textures and greenery. I believe that adding natural colors such as wood tones, greens and whites into your home can bring a sense of calmness. I have linked some of my must have Spring decor items below! 



I can go on and on about my favorite beauty items but I narrowed it down to the top 3 reached for items this month. The Anastasia eyeshadow palette has the perfect copper and brown tones that make any eye color POP. A good quality and good deal eye cream is always a must and lastly my all time favorite lashes that fool everyone into thinking they're real. Click the item to shop. 



My spring style this year (when I am not in leggings) consists of distressed (& stretchy) denim, off the shoulder and lose tops, floppy hats for messy hair days and comfortable feminine booties. I love to be comfortable in jeans which is why I have linked my all time favorite jeggings here. Off the shoulder tops make me feel feminine, flirty and quite frankly cover my arms (which are my biggest insecurity). 

Tap the photo to shop any of these items and don't worry I am a total budget shopper!



I had to ask my husband "what are some of the random things you saw me grab a lot this month?" He said "Kleenex." (insert laughing emoji). Outside of Tylenol cold and flu and tissues I  was loving my humidifier and oil diffuser in one (super good deal, just click on photo)...of course my Fujifilm Poalroid and lastly my new favorite hand soap (if you work in the health care field you will totally appreciate the love this stuff gives your skin).
