March Favorites - Beauty, Books, Music, Netflix

March Favorites - Beauty, Books, Music, Netflix

Can you believe we are already four months into 2018. Time is flying by at lightning speed! March was a relatively quiet month for me personally and a super busy one at work. I spent a lot of my downtime just relaxing and decompressing from work. I got back into Netflix binge-watching - which I have greatly missed doing, purchased some really amazing beauty items and read a few great books. Below is a round up of all the things I loved in March.

Beauty

I was obsessed with the new Pat McGrath limited edition mini eye shadow palettes.  I wanted all three of them but decided to be good and just buy two! I picked up the Mthrship Le Vi En Rose palette and the Bronze Ambition palette.

Books

I started listening to The Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard on Audible late in the month. It is the first of a series and so far I am loving it. It is essentially a YA book - but am I the only who has found that some YA books are leaps and bounds better than a lot of "grown up" fiction?

Music

I am huge music lover but I tend to take my sweet time listening to whoever is the hot singer of the moment. Mostly because I tend to be incredibly underwhelmed most of the time. But...I am loving Dua Lipa right now! I have seen her everywhere and heard bits of her music but she showed up multiple times in a playlist Spotify created for me (gotta love Spotify suggestions) and I am now a definite fan. I know New Music is a big hit of hers but I highly suggest listening to the acoustic version - it's better. Other songs of hers I'm loving are New Love, Be The One and Last Dance.

Netflix

I am a huge Jessica Jones fan. The first season was a masterpiece IMO and no other Marvel Netflix show has been able to live up to the quality of it (I'm looking at you Iron Fist). So needless to stay I was very excited for the premiere of the second season. So excited in fact that I stayed up until 5am on a weekend and binge-watched all 13 episodes. I regret nothing. The second season had a lot to live up to and while it had a very different tone - and a very different villain - I enjoyed it immensely. There were some truly heart-breaking moments that left me in tears. If you have not watched this show yet, what are you doing with your life?
