There are so many things, new and old, to obsess over this month. Here are some of mine!
Music: At work I’ve been playing the 2000’s pop Pandora station and it is SO. GOOD. Old Maroon 5, Britney Spears, Chris Brown, the Backstreet Boys, and other old favourites of mine are constantly playing. I never hit skip. My copy of Adele’s 25 album also arrived yesterday and even though I’ve only listened to it twice, I think it deserves a spot. Her voice is magical as always and I’m sure it will be a December favourite, too.
Books: This month I purchased Paper Towns. Against popular opinion, I wasn’t a big fan of the Fault in Our Stars so, to be honest, I wasn’t expecting a lot out of Paper Towns. I was pleasantly surprised. I really like it so far! I’ve also been reading some classics. I found a gorgeous hardcover copy of the Three Musketeers by Alexandre Dumas and decided to give it a try, as I liked the Count of Monte Cristo, which was also written by Dumas. The language isn’t too difficult and I’m enjoying the story. It’s one of those books that I’ve always heard about, but never knew what the actual plot of the story was.
Movies: My local movie theater has closed down so I haven’t been seeing a lot of new releases lately. However, I have been going back to the classics with some Disney! While I love the favourites like the Lion King and The Little Mermaid, I’ve been watching the older, less-popular ones like The Rescuers, the Great Mouse Detective, Alice in Wonderland, and the Aristocats.
TV Shows: If you read my Black Friday Haul post you may know that I purchased a copy of the Royals season 1, so I’ve been rewatching that while also watching season 2 every Sunday night. This show is so glamorous, dramatic, and funny. If you liked Gossip Girl, I think you’ll love this, too. Another great show is Degrassi: the Next Generation. I used to watch this all the time but I lost track of it after my favorite characters (including Jimmy Brooks, played by Drake) “graduated” from the show. I’ve been going back, watching the old episodes, and falling in love with the characters all over again.
Beauty: Most of the products I’ve been obsessed with this month I will be doing reviews on, so I won’t go too in-depth here. I bought and love the Mac Studio Sculpt foundation. I also purchased a Nars bronzer in Laguna, which is really pigmented and great for contouring. The brand Stila has also really impressed me. I bought one of their Stay All Day liquid lipsticks just a few days ago and I already adore it. When I swatched it on the back of my hand in Ulta, the pigmentation was amazing and once it dried, it did not budge. I’m also trying out the Stila In the Light eyeshadow palette, which I really like so far. Again, reviews are coming soon!
What have you been loving this month? Anything you think I should try out for December?
