January/February Favorites!

HELLO BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE!!! Aren't favorites posts fun? I love them. The last few months I haven't managed to get one up, though, so I'm making this lovely gigantic one with January AND February favorites.

Creating this post may have partially involved repeatedly asking my mom and my sisters, "What have I been obsessed with lately????" Because I have a terrible memory and literally can't even remember my own life. Go me.

Beauty:


I needed to try a new foundation, and ended up liking the Maybelline Fit Me in Porcelain. I had to switch because the Ivory TruBlend was too dark...I'm so pale, guys. It's terrible. Sometimes I feel like Porcelain doesn't even match. I really need to get a tan this summer. It's bad. 


I got this eyeshadow trio in a Target beauty box, and I really like it! I'd never tried anything by Pacifica, but I love the quality. It has nice pigmentation, and it doesn't crease, either. Plus, THE PACKAGING IS SO PRETTYYYYY. Gah. Love.


I'd been wanting to try EOS in stick form for forever. I got the vanilla one for Christmas, and the mint for Valentine's Day, and I love them both. The consistency is great, and it's so much easier than the big sphere that's the typical EOS shape.


This Bed Head curling wand was a Christmas present, and since then I haven't used my old curling wand once. It gives your hair these absolutely GORGEOUS, natural curls, and they really hold, too. Plus, the glove that comes with it works wonderfully. Can't recommend this wand enough.

Books:


These are basically books & journals all wrapped up into one and I'm obsessed. I'm also quite proud because I've kept up with them quite well. And if you know me, I'm terrible at keeping up with ANYTHING.


I read The Old Man and the Sea for school, and I really enjoyed it. Well, I enjoyed reading it the first time, anyways. Then I had to write this essay on the symbolism within the book and started to lose my mind. But the book itself was good!


Randomness:


The obsession is hardcore, guys. I'm almost finished with season 1- it's so great!


One of my friends managed to get almost the entire high school at our co-op obsessed with Color Switch. Myself included. It's sooo addicting. I've kind of gotten sick of it now, but it was a definite obsession for a while. 


I've absolutely loved watching this continuation to Full House. It's so cute, and since I grew up on Full House, seeing everyone grow up has been super fun. 


It's taking over my life, guys. I'm involved with helping with a production of the show coming up soon, and I could not be more excited. It seems like lately all I ever am thinking about is Aladdin! 

Music:


SURPRISE! The musical that has taken over my life. I literally cannot say enough good things about this show and its brilliance. It is honestly a piece of art.

Songs I've Been Loving:

Seasons of Love- Rent
Happy/Sad- The Addams Family
Kiss Me- Ed Sheeran
21 Guns- American Idiot (Original Broadway Cast)
When We Were Young- Adele
Safer- First Date
The Hanging Tree- Mockingjay
Homeless- Ed Sheeran

  1. Ah yes, The Hanging Tree. I am a first soprano that is usually picked to do the highest notes because that's where my vocal range is, but my devotion for this song is literally turning me into an alto (it's very painful but I sing it anyway).

    NORMAL-SHAPED EOS? I need these so badly. The days of having a weird bulge in my pocket are finally over.

    I don't share your enthusiasm with Seasons Of Love… I sang it for my middle school choir once and I had the part that repeats itself about 70 times…so I now hear it in my nightmares but I'm glad it doesn't terrorize you with memories of middle school choir!

    1. Typically I'm a mezzo-soprano, but I will literally kill my vocal chords to sing that song.

      THEY'RE THE ABSOLUTE BEST I CAN'T. The awkward bulge kills me.

      Oh gosh, if I'd had to deal with that, I would hate the song too..

  2. The Hanging Tree. <3
    ALSO HAMILTON. WOW. I LOVE THAT TOO MUCH FOR WORDS I SERIOUSLY LISTEN TO IT NON-STOP. (ha, see what I did there? SEE?!)

    Also I have that same Q&A journal! ...Not that I've... *cough* ...kept up with it... *cough* *sigh* I always start and then give up around June so it's a bunch of unfinished years. xD I should just get a new one and resolve to sticking with it. Sigh.

  4. I feel you on the pale skin, girl. But I choose to embrace it. It's easier that way.

    And 52 lists? What's that about?

    Plus, your songs sound great! I need to check them out.

    1. I love being pale but lord, it makes foundation difficult XD

      It's this really awesome book where every week, you get a prompt and make a list. Like, "Who makes you happy?" "What is the playlist of your life right now?" It's so cool.

      They're all really great songs:)

  5. "Seasons of Love" is my favorite song, ever.

    AND GAHHHH CAN I SAY ALEXANDER HAMILTON JUST YAYYYYYYY. My favorite song besides the opener would have to "The Schuyler Sisters" because Peggy is my spirit animal. XD

    xoxo Morning
