Welcome to My Favorite Things, the linkup for all things wonderful! I’m fashionably late, but Eirene is hosting those month so you guys know the drill. πŸ™ƒ

This entry will be a quick one since I have a couple of things to take care of, but I decided to create subcategories for my faves so they’re more organized. I find it a little messy to lump together my favorite shows, products, games, and so on without categorizing them. 😰 Let me know what you think!



Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate

I finally used up my Clarins serum that I mentioned in my faves post last November! I stretched it out as long as I could, but it was ultimately too expensive for the size I was getting. 😞 I heard a lot of good things about Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate so I decided to give it a try. It’s much cheaper and you get a bigger bottle, so it’s a better value all-around. It smells sooo good and absorbs into my face nicely. I’ve been using this for a while, and my skin hasn’t been breaking out which is great!


Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Moisturizer

I also purchased Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Moisturizer while I was at it. πŸ˜… I was looking for a moisturizer to use at night. I used to use Simple’s 24-hour cream but it broke me out so I had to stop that. This one doesn’t which is awesome. I apply it to my face, neck, and decolletage before I go to bed. I’m planning on buying the variant with sunscreen once I finish my current day moisturizer.



I finally saw Daredevil on Netflix! πŸ˜† Mike and I watched both seasons over his free weekend. I loved Season 1 especially. I shipped Claire and Matt for a minute so OF COURSE they sink it. Huhu wake me up inside~~~ The new show is so much better than the movie though! But then again, the movie had Colin Farrell… πŸ’–

House of Cards

Mike and I also caught up on House of Cards! We watch a lot of Netflix and Hulu since we don’t have cable. πŸ˜… The last season was really good. I couldn’t stop watching. As always, Claire Underwood looked perfect and everything I want to be. The latest season’s ending was crazy! I can’t want for season five already.

Nintendo released Miitomo on March 31st, and it’s adorable! It’s a social app where you answer questions about yourself, and your Mii can ask your friends questions about themselves too! The fun is in collecting coins and Nintendo points. When you answer a question, listen to your friends, or leave a comment, you can earn coins which you can then use to buy clothes in the Shop or use to play Miitomo Drop. My Mii serves better looks than I do.

You can also take pictures (called Miifoto πŸ˜›) with your Mii, and the app makes one for you everyday too. The cutest part is the voices! You can customize it to sound however you want, and the Miis all talk! Mike suprisingly loves Miitomo, although he loves to troll the text-to-speech. πŸ˜‘ I posted my QR code on Twitter, but if you link your Twitter to your Miitomo app, you can find me on there too! I hope we can search by username soon. I also hope we can decorate our rooms in the future!

That’s it for my favorites! Check out the rules (more like guidelines) below and let us know what you’ve been loving. <3

  1. Yes Daredevil! We finished season 2 recently, and I want more already. The Marvel series on Netflix are sooooo good. I’ve also been meaning to watch House of Cards. It’s been on my queue forevers.

    Oh man, so many people I know are on Miitomo. I haven’t gotten it yet, mainly because I’m lazy and haven’t cleared room on my phone yet. It looks so cute!

    1. Aahh so many people are on Miitomo! It’s so cute! I was able to use the Mii I have on my Nintendo account, so it was pretty easy to get started. :D

  2. Ooooh! Yay for skincare stuff! :D I’m glad those two new products are working out for you. It always sucks when a product makes you breakout :( But it’s always good when you find something that’s cheaper and works just as good as your old one! ^^

    1. Yeah, I purchased a night cream a few months ago but it broke me out. :( I haven’t had much luck with drugstore skincare, which sucks because they’re so cheap and I do want to save money here and there.

  3. High five on those first two Kiehl’s products you listed! I have both on top of the dark spot corrector products. Midnight Recovery is my ultimate FAVORITE, though. I currently use Kiehl’s Super Fluid UV Defense for SPF protection; I didn’t realize they had a moisturizer and sunblock combo. I will have to check them out!

    1. Ooh, do you use the Super Fluid UV Defense everyday? I’m looking for sunscreen that I can use on a daily basis. I ordered Biore Milk, but I’d like something more accessible!

      1. I use it everyday especially because I’m using the dark spot corrector. However, it kinda stings because my skin is very dry and sensitive.

  4. I just finished watching Sense8 (another good one by Netflix!) last night so I might give Daredevil another try as I’ve only seen the pilot episode months ago! Hihi

  5. Oooh I’ve been meaning to try the Kiehl’s facial oil. I’m glad you’re liking it.

    Yess! Miitomo has been my top app recently. And I didn’t realized you can pet their faces until my boyfriend was messing around with my game. But it’s hard for me to do it right for some reason. And yes! I hope we can just search by usernames. Otherwise, I might have to get back on twitter again…just for this game.

  6. Daredevil Season 2 was absolutely amazing! Even better than the first series in my opinion. I love, love, love the Punisher and it’s especially great to see Marvel do something that breaks away from the niceness of the movies they bring out.

    I shipped Matt and Claire in the first series, also. But he was just all over the place with his love life in this season. Gotta say, I lost a lot of respect for him.

    Ashamed to say I was shipping Karen and Frank all the way!

    I have to download Miitomo now! It looks great!

    1. Omg literally zzzzzz at Matt’s ~manpain~ in season 2. By the time I finished, I was glad Claire walked away from him. What a mess. She was right haha.

      Frank and Karen had way more chemistry than her and Matt! I ship Matt/no one LOL.

  7. For some reason, ever time I pass by Kiehl’s at the mall, I think it’s some cookie shop XD. It’s usually always cheaper to get things in a bigger bottle, “it’s only $xx more!”. Even though the moisturizer doesn’t do well with your skin, at least the midnight recovery does :).

    Daredevil is addicting!!! I’ve had nights where I was debating if staying up late is worth watching the show.

    Miitomo looks like an adorable app! I thought it was android only, but apparently, you can have it on iOS too!

    1. Gaah I’m so bad about Netflix binging. @_@ I can spend a whole day just watching and doing nothing else! I actually just did that with Broad City. :’D

  8. I have one more episode of Daredevil Season 2 to go! I’m getting into it more later in the season but I was pretty ‘eh’ about it all at the beginning of the season. The Punisher is great though!

    I’ve been seeing miitomo all over the place! Maybe I should finally create my own.

  9. It’s hard when products can cost a lot of money. Good when you find something that does work well and you can afford. :D

    I haven’t watched House of Cards yet. It’s one of those on my β€˜to-watch’ list.

    That game looks really cute and funny. xD

  10. I really want to try Kiehl’s but it’s so expensive :( They also don’t have trial packs, or travel sized ones :(
    Sayang yung miitomo talaga, di available sa PH. Once it gets available, I’ll download too hehe
