Kate’s Picks: 7 Things I Tried in March and Loved


Kate's Picks: 8 Things I Tried in March and Loved | Wit & Delight

Here we go! Another round of things from last month that I think are purchase-worthy. There’s a little something for everyone here. From t-shirts that support anti-racism efforts, to a show that’s helped bring a little more calm into my life, to a polish that leaves my nails healthier after each wear, here are seven things I tried and loved in March. 

Looking for more of my favorite finds? You can find all of my previous posts on this topic here.

Do The Work T-Shirt by Change Cadet


Change Cadet is dedicated to providing people and companies with services that support anti-racism, diversity, inclusion, equity, and belonging. In addition to their services, you can purchase apparel to serve as a reminder we’re always doing the work.

Change Cadet is Black-owned and employs an all-women team. I purchased this t-shirt a couple of months ago, and now that the Derek Chauvin trial is underway here in Minneapolis, I thought it would be particularly appropriate to lead with it.

True Botanicals Pure Radiance Oil


Facial massage continues to be an important part of my destressing ritual both in the morning and at night. I find my face responds better to oil moisture, and I’ve tried a number of oils over the years. In my experience, Pure Radiance Oil goes beyond your standard facial oil. It reduces fine lines and improves skin’s radiance. And it smells amazing. 10/10 from this dry-skinned woman.

A World of Calm on HBO Max

Included with an HBO Max Subscription

I clicked on this series after a rough week. I had assumed it would be something that it wasn’t—stock video footage with voiceovers similar to the experience on the Calm app. But it is so much more than that! Each episode is around thirty mins and focuses on one ecosystem or species, shot in a beautiful, dream-like way. It is visually immersive, captivating, inspiring, and, more than anything, leaves me filled up and restored after watching—something a screen rarely provides.

Deborah Lippmann Base Coat


I’ve been using this base coat weekly and it makes my nail color last longer! It looks nice on its own too. I think of this product as a nail treatment—it helps to moisturize and strengthen, and conceals imperfections in your nail color.

Every Room Should Sing by Beata Heuman


I love Beata’s style. It is sophisticated, playful, and, above all, totally unique. This book is really helpful for people who want to learn to create that eclectic style in their home. It’s a very emotional way of thinking about home design.

ILIA Lip Wrap Hydrating Mask


No matter how much water I drink or how often I put great lip salve on, nothing works better for me to repair flaky lips than this hydrating lip mask. I put it on right before bed and then in the morning after I wash and moisturize my face.

Silk Pillowcase


I had been waking up with huge marks on my face from sleeping on linen pillowcases, so I decided to give these pillowcases a try. They don’t shred in the washing machine and feel so soft, cool, and luxurious on my face! The olive green color (shown above) I purchased is sold out in the king size but still available in queen or standard!
