Hello my lovely friends! I know I have been slacking with my monthly favorites but they are back!!
Game Pickup: Probably my Mario Kart 8 Deluxe that I just got today actually. I think that this is seriously my best pickup in awhile. And most exciting. I went to my local Target near my work this morning and stood in line waiting for it to open just to pick up the game. AND get the puzzle cube that came with it. That’s what I was really after honestly. And it did NOT disappoint. I got that puzzle cube and I love the puzzle cube. I really think it’s one of the best pre-order offered items that I have seen in awhile. Most of the time I don’t care and I definitely don’t like paying full price for a game buuuuuut once in awhile things are worth it and you just gotta bite the bullet. So I did just that.
Comics: So I just decided to go down the very slippery slope of comic books. And lord help us all. I specifically have gotten into Bob’s Burgers, Invader Zim and Adventure Time. And oh my goodness, they’re all super cute and so great to read! I highly recommend them. I do have to say that I’m very proud of myself for not decided to collect, buy and read a superhero comic. That would be so much more worse than what I am currently doing. 😛 But I have found this new found hobby and interest to be a lot of fun and really rewarding. And the reading isn’t half bad either 😉
Nerd Moment: C2E2 and meeting Evanna Lynch. I think that is in the top 10 of all my nerdy moments in my life so far. Meeting her, being able to take a picture with her and attending her panel meant so much to me. The Harry Potter fandom has always had a very very special place in my heart. It is honestly practically impossible for me to put in to words what all it means to me and why it is so important to me so I honestly am not going to even try. It was nice to know that so many of the things that I have struggled with and still struggle with, she has gone through and understands. I know it’s silly but it really resonated with me. It just helped confirm my love for the fandom even more.
Music: “Stay” by Zedd ft. Alessia Cara: I have been obsessed with this song. Just ask Mathew. He has had to suffer through this song so many times that I think he’s far beyond over it. But me? I can’t get enough. I love the music, her voice, the vocal arrangement, just everything. My only problem is it is so catchy that it gets stuck in my hear almost constantly. Which is why I listen to it so much. To try to get it out of my head.
TV: Real Housewives of Beverly Hills: I honestly LOVE reality TV. Yes, I have SOME shame in it but not that much! I don’t get much time to watch TV as I prefer to because I would rather play video games and watch YouTube videos in my limited free time. But with everything going on in the last month or so I wanted an escape that didn’t require much brain power. Hence the reality TV. And the Housewives shows have always been a favorite go to for me. Especially Beverly Hills. Thank you Kyle Richards and Lisa Vanderpump. The drama makes me feel quite a lot better about my own life which was the goal. So win for me!
Book: This Is Where It Ends by Marieke Nijkamp: I have always been drawn to books with darker premises and this is no exception. This book is very powerful as it takes place in the perspective of four different high school kids in the span of 55 minutes during a school shooting. Yeah. Its very intense and a very quick read but it is a fantastic one. I can’t recommend this book enough. It’s very sad and scary but it really puts things into perspective. It makes you think about what really matters and how the stupid and trivial things that we worry about so much every single day just don’t even really matter in the grand scheme of things. The author did a very good job and wrote it beautifully. I think she captured the emotions perfectly and didn’t leave the reader disappointed with anything, but most definitely not the ending. This has quickly become one of my favorite reads and earned a spot on my bookshelf.
Katy Perry Katy Kat Mascara: OMG! This mascara is magic. Seriously. I fell in love with it. The wand is a little peculiar but it goes on so well and makes my eyelashes pop so so so much! It doesn’t clump and smooths out my eyelashes perfectly making it look like my own lashes au natural.
Brown eyeliner, specifically Colour Pop’s Mr. Bing crayon eyeliner: I have always been a black eyeliner girl. Exclusively black eyeliner. I never tried any other color because why? Black is classic. It’s classy. It works with everything. And then I got this beauty in my Ipsy glam bag. I decided to be more adventurous rather than complain and I am so glad that I did! The brown outlines my eyes really well and makes the green in my eyes pop. Which is always what I am striving for. Which now I am able to do that more!
Goddess Gold by INT Cosmetics eyeshadow: Another pleasant surprise from my Ipsy glam. It is very pigmented, very easy to apply, stays in place, and wears well. I use it as an all-over lid color and like I said it stays in place and lasts all day. Which is definitely something that I find is hard to achieve.
What are some of your favorite things from this past month? What are your thoughts on my favorites? Let me know!
Stay classy and sassy!
