It’s finally summer! I can finally breathe. I hope I can make this summer a productive one. Here are my faves of late:
show: “Say Yes to the Dress.” This show chronicles brides-to-be and their search for the perfect wedding dress. Who knew finding the perfect dress could be so complicated and emotional? I love it.
book: The Fault in Out Stars by John Green. I had to read 8 Young Adult novels for my Adolescent Reader class and write a final paper about a topic of my choice and how it is portrayed in YA Literature. I decided to explore dating, love, and sex and how it is portrayed in YA lit, and The Fault in Our Stars is one of the books I chose. At the time of selection, I had no idea how insanely popular this book was. After reading it, I understood why. It is a really good book and probably my favorite among the YA lit books I’ve read. It is a love story about two young people who have cancer and cancer is a VERY touchy subject for me but the book was humorous, poignant and beautiful.
movie: The Fault in Our Stars. It’s a funny coincidence this movie just came out in theaters as I finished the book. I decided to see it as a film adaptation. Big mistake! For some reason, I handled the book okay but I cried so much at the film! I don’t know what it is, but I was not ready to watch a movie portraying cancer, sickness, and death. It was a good movie and all, but with my personal history, I should have known I wasn’t ready to watch this. I was bawling! I still can’t stop thinking about how sad the movie made me feel. shit.
(btw, Ansel Elgort is adorbz!)
Disney’s Frozen is second. I love Olaf.
song: Sia - Chandelier. I like this song and the the music video is cool. There is this young girl who has some interesting movement… modern? I miss dancing.
Magic - Rude
food or drink: Philz coffee!!! I heard of Philz through the grapevine and thought it was one of those overrated fads that only hipsters were into but I decided to go there a few months ago and now I am hooked! The mint mojito is a great iced coffee and my favorite hot drink is the Dancing Water. I love coffee and think Philz is so tasty! Ugh, If only there was one closer to me and it wasn’t so pricey…
makeup product: So, I was 53 points away from a 500 point perk at Sephora and really wanted this nars sampler set that was 500 points so I decided to buy something. I thought hard about what I wanted to buy because 53 dollars is a lot to spend on makeup. I thought about what I needed. I needed a new eyeliner since I lost my Urban Decay one and was looking into this sephora brand set of eyeliners. It comes with 10 pencils for $49 and they are amazing! They are waterproof and they really do stay put! They are the only eyeliners i found to not transfer on my oily eyelid and i heard they were newly re-formulated! They are better than any eyeliner pencil i have tried (high or low priced).
Nothing is new with me. I have been going to Giants games, enjoying summer and working. I still need to work on balancing everything and being productive this summer. I’ll let you know how it goes.
