First of all, I wanted to just drop in here and say THANK YOU, to everyone who has ever taken the time to read, comment or share one of my blog posts. From the bottom of my heart, I sincerely appreciate all of the love! I started Cynspo to inspire, share and get you to realize what sets your soul on fire. In my blogging adventures, I come across a lot of things I love and try my best to talk about, but throwing out a tweet or Instagram mention isn’t enough to do these things justice. This is why I’ve decided to start doing a monthly favourite round-up, starting with March!
I’m always looking for ways to continue to grow as a blogger through adding new content, features and techniques to the way I blog. By adding a monthly favourites round-up, I hope to share with you guys my favourite posts, products and wholesome moments! I’m excited to add these posts as a new addition to my blog! Now let’s continue below to my absolute top favourite things of March!

Top 5 Favourite Products
If you follow me on Instagram, then you know I’m pretty much makeup and skin care obsessed! That’s where I do a majority of my obsession reveals, but I’m going to leave 5 of my top fav products here for this month (surprisingly not just beauty)! Have a look below!
1. Saje Peppermint Halo Rollerball
Sneak peak revealed on Instagram the other day, but I couldn’t wait to share! This natural headache remedy is the most soothing thing I own. Simply apply to the back of your neck and let the peppermint take effect! It has a nice tingly feeling which I find ultra relaxing. 10/10 will repurchase! Check it out here!
2. The Content Planner
Again, I couldn’t contain my excitement about The Content Planner. If you saw on my Instagram I released a sneak peak, as well as a little story reminder that I would be releasing my review! You can check out just how obsessed I am with The Content Planner here!
3. Farmacy Hydrating Sheet Mask
I’m obsessed with the fact that Farmacy uses natural ingredients that are locally grown! I’ve been super obsessed with their Hydrating Sheet Masks Lately (there’s never a bad time of year to hydrate your skin). My skin has never felt more hydrated since I’ve been treating myself to a weekly mask! You can check them out here!
4. GlamGlow Pout Mud
It’s safe to say I’m obsessed with all of their products, but I picked up the Pout Mud on a whim and I’m so happy that I did! Pout Mud is essentially a tinted lip balm that hydrates as well as adds a pop of colour! You can check them out here! (I picked up Starlet!)
Hootsuite is an app I use to run my blog every single day. It’s free to sign up as long as you link 3 or less accounts! I use it most often for Twitter and I cannot rave enough about how much easier it has made my life!
Top 5 Things That Inspired Me
Sources of inspiration are endless when it comes to blogging and life itself. I’m constantly being inspired by those around me and things I see on social media on a daily basis. Here are my top 5 sources of inspiration for this month!
1. The Blogging Community on Twitter
The blogging community on twitter is like NO other. I’m absolutely enthralled with how supporting, caring, loving and open people are. Twitter never ceases to amaze me with the amount of support there is. It’s truly bursting at the seams with people wanting to give back and share other’s stories. That’s how I came to do the blogger showcase, simply through watching others on Twitter and wanting to give back to the community!
2. Sunshine Baby
I’ll be honest, I was getting sick and tired of grey days for what seemed like months on end. Up here in Canada, our winter was a brutal one. I was honestly miserable with the lack of sunshine. Thank goodness for day-light savings time, and a coincidental increase in the sunshine. I’m super grateful the sun has come back out and I can feel the warmth of spring!
3. My One – Eyed Dog
Long story short, my baby-girl is okay, but she had her eye removed due to a bout of advanced glaucoma. Needless to say, I wasn’t sure how that would affect her and her personality. However, despite all odds, my baby has bounced back, is cuter than ever (is that possible?) and is thriving. She’s more active, more affectionate, and plays with my other dog way more. She keeps me going on days I feel like I have it bad!
4. My Local Blogging Community
Recently I connected with a bunch of bloggers in my area and I’m absolutely floored at how amazing they all are! I didn’t even know this community existed, and now I get to connect with some amazing local bloggers! I cannot wait to see where this goes!
5. ‘She Believed She Could, So She Did’
A quote I’ve heard several times, but really seemed to resonate with me this month. The power to do starts with us, and the power that comes from believing in ourselves! Simply believing in yourself for five minutes can change your whole mindset (as it did for me)!
I hope you guys have enjoyed this month’s favourites. I encourage you to spread the blogger love and check out the posts listed above! Tell me one favourite thing you’ve loved this month below!
