Hi, friends! March has been a SUPER busy month for me. I started it off with a quick trip to Crested Butte, Colorado, but since then I have just been running around like a chicken with my head cut off. I'm definitely at a point in life where I'm finding it hard to balance everything (work, blog, working out, teaching, eating well, enjoying life, spending time with friends and family, resting, cleaning the house at some point in there.....). Everyone always asks me how I do it and to be honest, I have no clue.....but I'm working on a post about finding work/life balance, especially in relation to blogging and working another job (or two) at the same time. Check back next week to read!

Needless to say, with such a busy agenda recently I haven't had much time to shop or test out many new products. Good for my wallet, bad for this post, haha. But just know that the ones I rounded up below are real winners in my book! I included a few oldies but goodies since I was running low on new things :)

How pretty is this $60 set from Roma Designer Jewelry? I love that their pieces are all quality but still affordable! You can use code AMANDASOK20 for a discount on their entire website! 

I have a HUGE head. Not even remotely exaggerating. I usually have to wear men's hats because my head is so massive! I'd like to just think that it's my thick hair, but it's not haha. I have a really hard time finding stylish hats that fit me without giving me massive headaches, but this one fits like a charm! Plus it's cute and affordable (only $24!). It comes in several other colors and I've been wearing it on repeat!

3. Orange Vanilla Coke Zero
If you haven't tried this yet, DO IT. You can thank me later.

4. Bronzer Stick
I have been using the Hoola bronzer stick for ages to contour the sides of my nose....I got it as a Christmas gift in 2016 and finally ran out of it. I didn't want to spend quite that much for something I only use on my nose so I ordered this one instead and think it's a great dupe at a much better price!!

5. Pardon My French Coffee Mug
I am a HUGE coffee mug collector and a sucker for anything with French phrases on it because I'm trying to learn French right now! Any other Duolingo users out there? Needless to say, when I saw this Kate Spade mug on sale for such a good price, I knew I had to have it!

I've had this product for a while but I recently rediscovered it! I had been feeling like my hair was thinning out  so I was trying every hair product in my bathroom to help add volume. I'm so glad I found this one at the back of the cupboard! I spritz it on my hair (but not my roots) before blowdrying and it seriously adds so much thickness and volume without adding any sticky texture - especially when m hair is straight. I hate volume sprays that make my hair feel dirty and this definitely does not do that.

7. Sun Bum 3 in 1 Leave In Treatment
While we're on the subject of hair products.... This is an oldie but a goodie! I ran out of it a few days ago and realized I hadn't ever shared it on the blog before. I use it whenever I let my hair air dry. It is very moisturizing but it also restores natural body so it's great for those with wavy hair who want a beachy look! Plus it smells incredible!

One last hair product for you! I recently partnered with Briogeo and they sent me this Sea Goddess spray! It's made with natural mica (as opposed to glitter) so it doesn't harm sea life. I'm all about that mermaid life! The spray can be used on hair or body for a little shimmer and shine. I don't think it has much other benefits (like adding smoothness, texture, heat protectant, etc) but it certainly adds a nice shine and it smells great!

9. Banana Frosted Flakes
Cereal is one of my favorite food groups. And this limited time flavor of frosted flakes does not disappoint. Tony the Tiger did GOOD. I have probably had a bowl almost every day since I got it at Walmart! If you like the "fake" banana flavor (like banana pudding or taffy) you will love this.

I've been raving about Vital Proteins and using their powdered collagen peptides for over a year now. Collagen is SO GOOD for your hair, skin, nails, joints, bones, etc. Vital Proteins recently launched a new product and I'm all about it! This collagen water comes pre-made so you can just grab and go. I really like the blueberry mint flavor, it's so refreshing! It has like 10g of protein and is low in carbs so it's easy to fit into a balanced diet. 

 I'm aaaalways on the hunt for new leggings! I wear leggings almost every day of my life, whether that be to workout, to sleep, to teach or to wear to work under a tunic. Stronger Sweden sent me this pair and it literally feels like butter on your body (plus I love the fun prints). You can get a discount with code AMANDASOK20 on any item on their website!

I loooove the slip on sneaker trend but have a really hard time finding a pair that doesn't rub my ankles! I heard multiple people talk about how comfy these were, so I pulled the trigger. Since they have more of a mesh upper, they don't rub nearly as much as other slip on sneaks. I love them!!

13. Rose Gold Sandals
These were gifted to me by Malvados and I love them so! I know they'll get lots of use this if sandal season would just hurry up and get here already!

I shared this swimmie on Instagram and WOW. If you guys bought all of my LikeToKnow.It products as much as you bought this swimsuit, I could quit my day job! But seriously, this suit is all it's cracked up to be and more. It is SOOOO flattering and slimming (hooray for high rise), super affordable and it comes in several color options! Plus, I mean, it's you might as well order it and if it doesn't work just send it back! 

I did a whole post on this serum here, but incase you missed it, I had to include it in this post! I really do love it. It has a sticky-ish texture (as opposed to greasy) so it soaks in really quick and is easy to wear under makeup or other skin care products. Vitamin C is such a hot topic for skin care right now and I'm all about it! Anything that brightens dark spots and increases a youthful I right?! 

Do you have any new products you are loving? If so, leave them in the comments! I'm always on the hunt for new things to test out....I'm such a product junkie with a bad shopping addiction, so bring 'em on!
