March 2015 Favorites: Our fashion, beauty and music must-haves!
FASHION

H&M loves Cochella - Everything
We tried to single out one piece that we loved most, but everything in the H&M loves Coachella line was just too fun and summer-ready. From crop tops to a crochet dress and kimono-inspired number, the collection has your festival needs covered. Not to mention there are plenty of great pieces to wear while sippin' drinks on a patio, heading to the beach - you name it. Available in stores and online.

White By Lolë - Laghuvi Jacket
Launched in 2012, Lolë's White collection is dedicated to helping communities in need with all proceeds this season going to the Sobbhana Women’s Foundation. Not only is this white jacket a fashionable way to help a great cause, but it's also THE perfect spring layering piece, as it's actually a three-in-one, as the bolero-length jacket and quilted insulator can be worn separately. Available in stores and online
 
BEAUTY

L'Oréal ProfessionnelMythic Oil Seve Protectrice
L'Oréal Professionnel's latest addition to its Mythic Oil range comes in the form of its new Seve Protectrice cream, which protects hair against heat and boasts the highest thermo-protection on the market - woah. Enriched with black cumin oil, which is known for its soothing properties, the cream keeps your hair healthy and shiny even in heat up to 230°C! $26 in salons
The Body Shop - Hemp Soap on a Rope
The Body Shop already impressed us with its limited edition poppy collection this year and this month, there is an awesome new line that has us talking with the focus now placed on the benefits of hemp. Packed with moisturizing Community Fair Trade Hemp Seed Oil, Hemp Soap on a Rope is gentle and won't dry out your skin, but it will leave it feeling nice and soft. Not to mention it looks super cool hanging in a shower or perched on the side of a bathtub! $10 in stores and online.
 
MUSIC
  
Kendrick Lamar - To Pimp A Butterfly
Kendrick Lamar dropped his third studio album this month and everyone absolutely went crazy over 'To Pimp a Butterfly' - we sure can't say we blame them. The highly anticipated follow-up to the Grammy-nominated 'good kid, m.A.A.d city' was executive produced by Dr. Dre and it doesn't disappoint (thankfully!), delivering a unique medley of tracks influenced by everything from funk to jazz. Yes, please. $14.99 on iTunes
 
 
Various Artists - Home: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack
The official soundtrack from the newly released 'Home' movie features everyone from Rihanna to Kiesza, Charli XCX, Jacob Plant and Jennifer Lopez and you'll have a hard time not falling in love with it. The concept album was inspired by the adorable animated film, which stars Rihanna and Jim Parsons, and created especially for it, but if you think this is a kids' record, you couldn't be more mistaken. $6.99 on iTunes

BONUS 

Patisserie Petit Lapin - Everything! 
We don't usually have a food category in our monthly Favorites column - we really should change that! - but we discovered THE most amazing allergy-free sweets this month and the news just had to be shared. From cupcakes to donuts, macarons, cream puffs and madeleines, Montreal's Patisserie Petit Lapin offers gluten-free, lactose-free and allergy-free treats, which gives those with allergies and food intolerances peace of mind. Best of all, though, is the fact that these goodies don't compromise on taste and are so. freakin'. yummy. Online store launches April 9.
