March Loves

Even though it feels like New Year's Eve was only a week ago, we've arrived in April already. That means it's time for a new *Fill in the current month* Loves on Lemontierres! March was a pretty busy month for me - which usually means I start procrastinating and look for new things to keep me from doing my other important things, such as studying and finishing important assignments. Not very convenient for my upcoming exams but hey, I do have some nice random items/discoveries to show you in my monthly loves-post. Enjoy!

Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt
Unbreakable, they're alive, damn it, it's a miracle! - I can't get the theme song out of my head and I'm sure I'm not the only one. UKS (the title is such a mouthful) is a very cheerful series and watching it made me happy. Too bad there's only one season on Netflix (there is only one season in general) but Netflix will actually be producing season two. Yay!

Harper's Bazaar
I usually go for the usual magazines (Vogue, Glamour, Elle) when I want some easy reading material but I got a few Harper's Bazaar issues and I must say I love the magazine: it holds the perfect combination of fashion, art and other lifestyle-related topics, unlike Vogue, Glamour and Elle which can get quite fashion-y (I know, they're fashion magazines) - and I like reading about fashion but not only fashion - and I like reading about lifestyle/art but not only lifestyle/art.

Aloe Vera Green Tea
I told you about other Simon Lévelt teas back in October 2014 and I recently discovered another lovely tea of theirs: the Aloe Vera Green Tea. Green tea can be quite bitter but the aloe vera takes this bitterness away and subtly adds a sweet touch.

My new blog layout
I had been looking for a new layout for quite some time when I stumbled across MangoBlogsShop on Etsy and fell in love with the minimalist design. Installing the theme was easy and the owner of the shop is so nice! She helped me install the blog properly because some things were not working correctly. I really recommend this shop if you're looking for a new template, especially if you're not really good with HTML codes and such.

My new glasses
I love wooden things and the naturel look that comes with them and when Firmoo offered me to send me a pair I was really happy and accepted their offer rightaway.

Mad Men
Just as I finished watching Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt I realized I never continued watching Mad Men - I stopped somewhere in the middle of the first season. I decided to watch the next episode and now I'm hooked again.

The BB-cream with concealer combination
As the weather gets better, I get lazier when it comes to make-up. I don't like the heavy coverage foundation has when the Sun is shining so I looked through my older makeup articles and saw I had a perfect BB-cream lying around. It's great for a subtle hint of makeup without having your whole face covered in cosmetic paint!

Daniel Wellington watches
Oh, I love how classic Daniel Wellington watches look. I finally have my own and I haven't taken it off since I got it (well, almost).

I hope you liked this March favorites! It is kind of late and I am aware of that but I hope you don't mind. By the way: I'll contact the winners of the yoga giveaway today. Have a lovely day! Much love, Sjoukje.


  1. I love the first photo! I think I might need to give Harper's Bazaar a go, it sounds great!
    By the way, it usually helps not to brew green tea with boiling water but leave it so it can cool before you make the tea. I've heard something like 80°C would be the best. Another possibility for dealing with the bitterness is preparing your green tea as any other tea, then pouring away the first cup and using the same vessels to prepare a second cup. Hope that was of some help. :)

  2. That watch is so gorgeous! My mum recently repaired two stunning watches from her father, who let the to her several years ago. They are both very masculine looking, but I find that style extremely elegant for some reason. I don't get one, because she picked one and had already promised my brother the other one, but perhaps I can find a way to get one of these Daniel Wellington ones (they're extremely similar)!

  12. The photo is great!!! I don't know Unbreakable but i just watch the trailer (i like the song) and i think i'm gonna watch it. I love drinking tea, i don't know the bran Simon Levelt, i don't know if i can find it in France (aloe vera flavor make me curious). I love your new pair of glasses <3 and i love Mad Men :-D!! Daniel Wellington watch is on my wish list ;-)

  13. I love your new template. It's really minimal, but not too much, just as I like. I took a look at MangoBlogsShop's templates, and I find htem really good, plus they are really cheap!

    Lucky you, I want a Daniel Wellington watch so bad :((

  15. GREAT list dear:) I wish you a wonderful weekend with lots of sun

    Check out my new post...A Swedish dream house in all shades of G:)

    LOVE Maria Inredning - it's Swedish for decor

  16. Haha, yes it totally does still feel like we just made it through New Years! I also really like the minimalistic design of your new layout. I'll stop by the Etsy shop and see what she has to offer! I've been tweaking my layout for so long now, and although I'm more of an HTML DIY'er, I still get lost sometimes and things don't always turn out the way I want them to. LOVE concealer with BB cream when your skin is struggling. I also don't like the heavy foundation (really even when the sun isn't shining) because it just isn't 'me'.

    Enjoy your April!!
    Much LOVE!
