March Favourites

So, somehow another month has passed by which means it’s time for another monthly favourites!
I was so busy in February that I completely forgot to do a favourites and when I did, it was already March.. so here’s a March Favourites instead!
I am going to save the blabbing this time and just get stuck right into it.

So let’s dive in..
My first favourite of the month of March certainly has to be Netflix. I have finally re-entered the fabulous world of Netflix and wowie, there are so many incredible shows for me to catch up on! There is nothing better than jumping into bed early to catch up on Netflix and munching on way too many Minstrels! I have written a post on What I’m Looking Forward to on Netflix 2017 (This might feature 13 Reasons Why – which is another monthly favourite for me! Hype hype!) for you all to check out, if you need some inspiration!

I was so fortunate to attend a Netflix Event in Cardiff last month, where there was a Netflix-filled apartment and we got shown all of the latest releases coming for 2017. Here is a link to that post, incase you want to give it a read: My Time at the Netflix Apartment.

My first favourite of March has to be the Nyx Brow Gel in the shade ‘Chocolate’ (seen in the photo above). Seriously, it is pretty tough to rub these bad boys off whilst I have this brow gel on my eyebrows! I was looking for a product that doesn’t wipe away easily like pencil or sometimes powder (I also have psoriasis, so I tend to scratch pretty often) and this product works a treat.
I apply this brow gel with an angled eyebrow brush from Real Techniques, I try not to apply too much as they can go a little too bold and dark for my face but if I apply carefully, they go with my hair colour pretty well.

You can purchase this from select Boots stores, so here is a link to the website for you to browse. I will most probably do an eyebrow tutorial on my blog using this product for you all soon! Let me know what you think about that.

My second favourite of the month has to be ‘Dear Amy’ by Helen Callaghan which I am currently reading. I haven’t finished it yet, but the storyline is so good and I got completely hooked on just the blurb which is just here:

“Would you risk your life to save a stranger? 
Discover what happens next in the Sunday Times bestselling psychological thriller, Dear Amy . . .

A local schoolgirl has been missing for weeks when Margot Lewis, agony aunt of the ‘Dear Amy’ advice column, receives a letter:

Dear Amy,

I’ve been kidnapped by a strange man. 
I don’t know where I am. 

Please help me,
Bethan Avery

This must be a hoax. Because Bethan Avery is another young girl, who went missing twenty years ago.

As more letters arrive, Margot becomes consumed by finding the sender and – unlike the police – convinced that the girls’ disappearances are connected.

Solving this puzzle could save someone’s life – but could it also cost Margot her own?”

You can purchase this book from Amazon now!

My third favourite is Bath and Body Works ‘Twisted Peppermint’ foaming hand wash which is a Christmas Fragrance. I absolutely adore Bath and Body Works and I am so, so, so sad that there isn’t one in the UK (although, if there was, it would probably be expensive..) so when I go to America I go a little crazy on the hand soaps and antibacterials! I cannot get enough of them!

I was super excited as I have heard about the Christmas Fragrances that come out obviously over the Christmas period, but I have never been in America late enough for them to be released, so this Christmas I found them and I was super excited!
Unfortunately, I really wanted the Body Mist of this as it was really gorgeous but it was sold out completely in the store I went to and could not get my hands on it! Damn!

Anyway, this foaming hand wash is incredible. It has such a strong and lost lasting scent that stays on your hands afterwards and the bottle lasts ages too! (I went a little crazy using this, although I knew I’d regret it when it’s all gone..)
I would highly recommend these products and if you haven’t heard of Bath and Body Works then definitely give them a browse – there’s no doubt that you won’t find something that you will fall in love with!

I have also been loving The Library of Fragrance‘s scent in ‘Honeysuckle’. I purchased this from Boots for £10 (usually £15) with my Advantage Card points to treat myself and my, my, my.. this genuinely smells like actual flowers! Although, my boyfriend just comments ‘You smell like a bee’ (whatever a bee smells like.. but y’ano).
This company have so many different fragrances from Cinnamon, Marshmallow, Mint Ice Cream, Fresh Laundry and even Play-Doh.. that’s right, Play-Doh.. yummy?..

You can even mix and match scents, and they have a page that tells you which scents compliment each other whether you want to go warm, musky, bright and refreshing..

I’ll leave a link to their website here and also check out the Boots website as either one of the sites usually have an offer on!

So, that is all I have for my March Favourites at the moment. I hope you enjoyed and I would love to know what you have been loving this month too! Let me know down below!

TRAVEL LOG 02.03.15 – 16.03.15

02/03/15 I bumped into Isabel in the toilets this morning, so I have hung around with her and her friends all day! Everyone is so nice, and we went for dumplings for our lunch!

04/03/15 It’s the first day of the F1 set up today – there was a lot of lifting, unloading, construction and I know I will aching in the morning haha! But it was so much fun and I met some more new people!
I cannot wait for the F1 to actually start!

05/03/15 I am currently in Starbucks catching up with some blog posts, just phoned Barb for the first time and am hoping to go to H&M to get some basics for farming.
I had lunch cooked for me today by my two new asian friends, which was really nice of them.
I check out tomorrow to go to Urban Central and I just booked my day tour to Great Ocean Road!

06/03/15 I went back to Starbucks today so I could catch up on blog posts and everything – not much happened! Just getting ready for tomorrow!

07/03/15 I went on my trip to the Great Ocean Road today – it was amazing, I loved it! I saw some wild koala bears, went into a rainforest, visited several gorgeous beaches and then saw the twelve apostles!

08/03/15 I started back at work again today, setting up more stands for the F1 Grand Prix. Although, I drove on the race course today!

09/03/15 I went to work again today, same thing really. Just had an induction as well for a little bit, got to know which marquee I was working on and that was about it! My logs will probably be really boring until Thursday, so I won’t write much here.
I also saw loads of amazing hot air balloons everywhere this morning, so pretty!

10/03/15 I drove on the circuit again today, in the work van! It was such an experience whilst all of the signs and fences were up – I took a video which I will try to post onto my blog, too! I will do a mini YouTube video as well, although I haven’t filmed much yet!
We also got to see people pulling out all of the bollards on the track for the race, which must’ve taken hours and hours to do! We also saw them repainting the sponsors signs all around the track, although they looked perfect from last year – it’s still not good enough! 😀

11/03/15 I saw some of the safety cars driving around the track today as they closed it for practises, so good! I also heard a lot of the drivers testing last night – exciting!

12/03/15 The Formula One is finally starting! Today is Corporate Day mainly, and some of the general public can come in too. It’s pretty quiet so far, but it will be a lot busier over the next three days! We have already sold out of so much stock already, on the first day – crazy!
I heard a lot of the cars practising today and managed to run up onto the grandstand at 7am to take a video whilst one came past – it was so fast though that I couldn’t even see who it was driving!

13/03/15 It’s the first main day of the Grand Prix! I got to wonder around Albert Park on my breaks, so I went to see the Opening Ceremony cars that the drivers arrive in – too cool!

14/03/15 Today is Qualifying Day! I sat by the screens on my break to watch it, sadly McLaren did not do very well but it was still so exciting to watch! The atmosphere was crazy!

15/03/15 Today is the last day of the Formula One Grand Prix – so sad! Everything has been so exciting, and although it’s the main race today, it will all be over straight afterwards.

After the race finished, I heard a load of hysterical screaming and shouting coming from the grandstand, so I ran up to have a look and people were waiting for the drivers to come out.
I got to see Rosberg, which was amazing! Sad to be finishing my work here!

16/03/15 My first day off in ages, today I am getting myself organised for tomorrow as I fly back to Sydney to go farming. I have packed my backpack whilst drinking a celebratory ‘Well Done Zoe, You worked hard’ cider and a Kinder Bunny. I also went to the post office to send a box to my parents with a few bits of merchandise from the Formula One for them, as they’re very jealous that I was working there!

Did you guys watch the Grand Prix? Or visited the Great Ocean Road? It was definitely one of my favourite places so far, with Byron Bay!
