Here we go with round two of my monthly favorites! :D
This time I’ll begin with a movie, Thor: The Dark World. I’ll admit that it was incredibly difficult for me not to go to the midnight showing, or even during opening weekend. I had previously promised to take my brother out to see it for his birthday, so I ended up waiting 2 WHOLE WEEKS! That aside…it was well worth it. I’ll be brief and without spoilers. Asgard was beautiful. The landscape shots, the architecture, the costumes. I wasn't as impressed with Malekith as I would've liked/expected to be, but I'm blaming General Zod in Man of Steel for that one. He was the last movie supervillian that I experienced, and yeah. Wow. But I digress.
Thor x Jane = love. Loki was amazing, in every way imaginable. The ending of the film certainly made me curious about the God of Mischief’s future role in the Marvel universe! My second favorite character was Darcy. She was hilarious! And reminded me of myself in a few scenes…
…Here is the trailer!
The local radio stations have started playing Christmas music…DUN DUN DUN. So it begins. I live for this time of the year! I’m super excited to finish up this term and start decorating, shopping, and baking to my heart’s content. ♥ But I’m going a little off-topic (
here. As for my favorite music during
the month of November, it shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise when I say
that I’m still addicted to k-pop. Now
that I’ve officially immersed myself in the world of Super Junior (in
particular; I listen to other k-pop, too, I promise), I’ve come across some of
their lesser known/less popular tunes, a few of which I’ve been absolutely
loving. Promise You by their
subgroup Super Junior-K.R.Y. is one
such song. Also, Sorry Sorry (Answer Vers.). How—no, WHY—does this video have less
than a million views? o__o
I’d say that my absolute favorite for this past month has been Daydream. Such a beautiful song!
Other (non-Korean, ha ha) music picks for November are Waiting for Superman by Daughtry, Honestly by Kelly Clarkson, and Strong by One Direction.
Lots of ramen and chocolate pocky have been consumed by me as of late. Neither of these is particularly new to my diet, so I’m not sure if they count as a “monthly favorite,” but it doesn’t hurt anything to mention them here. :)
As the weather gets colder and colder, our summer tans fade away, and we’d all look like Noh masks if it weren’t for makeup. One look that I’m particularly fond of for myself during fall and winter is blush. I don’t wear blush during the summer because all the sun exposure usually causes it to melt into my foundation and…yuck. Besides that, blush doesn’t really show up well under summer’s rays, at least against my skin tone. I like blush when it’s cold because it provides subtle color and an overall warmer look to the face. It’s like a holiday glow! ^_^ My favorite everyday blush right now is one from e.l.f.’s Studio Line. The color is called “Tickled Pink.” It’s a perfect dark pink that isn’t too faint or too vivid. It stays on quite well for up to 8 hours. And you can’t argue with the $3 price tag!
Video games were pretty much non-existent in my life during the month of October, but I’ve been slowly easing them back into my schedule lately, because truthfully, I really miss gaming. ;__; Back in June I received a bunch of 3DS games for my birthday, so I’ve been playing those. I absolutely love Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance. This is the first KH game that I’ve owned. I played the original game years ago, but to be honest I don’t remember much about it. This installment is just so. Much. Fun. The characters and storyline are fantastic, and I love the suspense of not knowing which Square Enix or Disney element is going to pop up next. I’ve also been playing Tales of the Abyss and Fire Emblem Awakening. I just started those two, so I’m not going to comment on them right at this moment.
I’ll end this month’s favorites with an accessory. Ya’ll know that I am a huge Lord of the Rings nerd. I’ve been wanting an Evenstar pendant for as long as I can remember. Ever since the Noble Collection came out with their
…And that’s all, folks! I hope you enjoyed reading this post. As always, if any of you have any questions about anything I’ve said here, please don’t hesitate to drop me a line!
Within the next couple of weeks, I will
finally be posting either my ocarina review for Songbird Ocarinas, or my contact lens review for EyeCandy’s. Or maybe both. Who knows! Christmas break is on the way, after all! :D
