Welcome to My Favorite Things, the linkup for all things wonderful hosted by yours truly and my good friend Eirene! Every first Tuesday, we post our monthly favorites and discover awesome things from fellow bloggers. Join us and share what you love!
Here’s what I’ve been loving this past month! I’ve been slowly building up my skincare routine in particular, and I really like how my new routine is going so far. I’ll be writing a proper skincare routine post soon. For now, here are my absolute skincare favorites amongst other faves!
StriVectin Advanced Retinol Intensive Night Moisturizer
This night moisturizer by StriVectin is amazing! I’ve noticed tiny laugh lines on the side of my nose, and my mom suggested I stop laughing so much to prevent them but eh, that’s not realistic. 😝 StriVectin has made such a huge difference in plumping them up. It’s pricey but worth every penny! I apply it ever night after toning. It’s now on my must-have list.
Biore UV Perfect Milk
This is another one on my must-have list. Sunblock is an integral part of skincare, and I’ve been faithful in applying it regularly though I haven’t found a brand I love. The problem is Western sunblock tends to be greasy and unpleasant smelling since they’re mainly intended for the beach.
I read that Asian sunblock is designed for daily use, so I ordered Biore UV Perfect Milk and omg it’s so good?? It goes on smooth with a powdery finish, and it doesn’t have that gross sunscreen smell at all. I can put this on confidently underneath my makeup. I love it!
TV and Movies
Rick and Morty
Rick and Morty was supposed to be last month’s fave but I forgot about it. Oops. 😳 I’m including it now since I’m still *burp* referencing it *burp* all the time *buuuuurp*. It’s so squanching funny! This show is basically a mad scientist pulling his grandson through all sorts of shenanigans. It’s super random at times, like the plumbus clip above that I’ve basically memorized LOL.
I kept hearing about Broad City here and there so I decided to check it out on Hulu. I like it a lot! I relate to both Abbi and Ilana in different ways. :’D The basic premise is two young women going through all sorts of shenanigans as you do in your 20s. I clearly have a type with shows hahaha!
Far from the Madding Crowd
Mara made me watch Far from the Madding Crowd and I don’t understand why she would do this to me??????? And she knew, SHE KNEW that I would pick the problematic one because I have trash taste. UGH. UUUGGGGHHH.
But I lowkey pick Daddy Boldwood for that sweet estate. :’)
NEED I SAY MORE? 🍋🍋🍋🍋🍋🍋 “6 INCH” is my anthem for life, and “SORRY” is my favorite music video in recent years. Beyonce’s look is everything. The entire album plus the visuals is on iTunes! Go my lovelies, and change your life.
I signed up for Depop to purchase a few used items, and I really like the concept. It looks like fashion bloggers mainly use this app to sell their clothes which I’m totally cool with. I’m thinking of selling a few items myself! My closet could really use a culling. The app itself is buggy on Android, but otherwise transactions are pretty smooth and I could contact sellers easily. Add me on Depop if you have one too! I’m raiscake.
That’s it for my faves this month! Now it’s your turn. Check out the rules (more like guidelines) below.
