My Favorite Things is a monthly blog linkup for all the things you love, hosted by Eirene and yours truly. We open every first Tuesday of the month and run for one week. Do join us and share your favorite things!
June felt like an eternity to me. The first half of the month was a chaos of moving, packing and unpacking, buying and assembling furniture, very little sleep, blah blah… you’ve all heard it before. I wasn’t online very much that time, but that didn’t mean I wasn’t enjoying a few things while getting our new place together. I’m just glad July is here. It’s my birthday month, y’all! #TREATYOSELF2015
Enough rambling, here are my faves for the past month!
Orange is the New Black Season 3
Orange is the New Black Season 3 was released during moving week, and I was so happy! It kept me sane while unpacking. RUBY ROSE, PLEASE MARRY ME. She’s so hot huhuhu.
I really enjoyed this season. It’s relatively looser than the last plot-wise, much more episodic. I enjoyed Big Boo and Doggett’s friendship (I hope they band together next season to stop that thing from happening again! ), Chang remains superior, and Pornstache continues to slay me. I hope he makes an appearance next season. I can’t believe what a glorious loser he’s become. It’s wonderful.
Linus Tech Tips
I follow tech channels on Youtube, and I’ve watched a few videos of Linus Tech Tips before, but I didn’t subscribe until recently. Linus has a snarky but hilarious personality that makes his videos fun to watch. He mostly does PC reviews.
His build videos are educational for me who doesn’t know much about computer hardware. For one, I had no idea water cooling computers is a thing. The video above has him water cooling the latest Macbook for fun. I also enjoy his Scrapyard Wars segment with Lucas. His channel is tons of fun for people who love tech.
Breathe In. Breath Out. by Hilary Duff
MY QUEEN IS BACK. <3 I love Hilary Duff's new album, Breathe In. Breathe Out. The first half are all bops. The rest were growers, but I love the whole thing at this point. My favorites are “My Kind” (next single please!), “One in a Million,” and “Lies.”
Fallout 4 Announcement
FALLOUT 4 COMETH. I pre-ordered it as soon as it was available, and then the Pip-Boy edition came out and I pre-ordered that too. Yes, I now own two copies of a game that isn’t released yet, SO WHAT. Bethesda can take my money. I’m giving my second copy to Michael.
I was pretty quiet about E3 because of the move, but rest assured I was freaking out on Twitter. I’m also looking forward to knowing more about Mass Effect: Andromeda. The trailer is serving me some Fallout: New Vegas realness. Hehe good. I hope the story is well-written. Please don’t hurt me again, Bioware.
Fallout 3k Theme
[ FALLOUT INTENSIFIES ]
To celebrate Fallout 4’s announcement, I installed the Fallout Nuclear Launcher Theme on my phone! You need Go Launcher and its accessory apps to get the full theme up and running. I got the Pip-boy lockscreen and weather widget too! The icons are all Pip-boy themed as well. So awesome.
Go Launcher is a bit of a memory hog though, so I only had this theme for a couple of weeks. It was fun while it lasted though! I got some cool screenshots, and I can always put it back on anytime.
Now that we have a living room to ourselves, I purchased a 65″ TV! I got a Best Buy 10% off coupon for our new address, plus free delivery. I picked out a TV on sale too, so all-in-all I got a good deal.
We still don’t have cable, but we’ve had Netflix for a long time now and there’s always Youtube and Hulu too. I ordered a Chromecast so we can enjoy streaming on TV. I love this little dongle! I can now binge-watch my shows on the couch, on our super soft rug. Feels good after a long day at work.
I used Pinterest on and off before for hair inspiration, but I started using it more when I needed furniture ideas for our new place. I got obsessed for a minute, so now I have more than a handful of boards for things relevant to my interests as well as some blog tip boards! Let me know if you have a Pinterest account so I can follow you! I’m sweetraiscake.
That’s it for my favorites this month! I actually had way more than this on my initial list, but it was starting to look overwhelming so I just picked out the ones that I really liked. Now it’s your turn! Check out the rules (more like guildelines) below and let us know what your favorite things are!
