October Favorites 2016

November 16, 2016

I know this is incredibly late but I was wanting to do my October Favorites in a video format but sadly that did not work out according to plan. But I didn't want to not do a monthly favorites so here it is! I don't have a lot of products to mention and a lot of the things I will be mentioning are either anime shows or movies (no surprise there). 
Starting things off with the first item that was actually gifted to me from my friend Ariele! She got me this perfect pug cup with the letter J on it which stands for "Just Right." I'm not sure where she got this cup, I want to say it was either Wal Mart or Walgreens. This cup is perfect because it has my favorite dog on it and it's my favorite color! The only thing I find troublesome about the cup is that the inside is black so sometimes when I use this at night I shine a light in the cup just to make sure bugs didn't fall into my drink lol. 
The second favorite is the Nature's Way Alive Women's Multivitamin gummies. Being constantly stressed from school, work, and whatever life decides to throw at me, it's easy to forget to take care of myself. I know sometimes there are days where I barely eat (Anthony always gets mad at me for this) but hey, sometimes you're just too caught up in other stuff you forget about food! (Although that's kind of hard seeing as I am a Nutrition Major) So to help make sure I'm still getting the nutrients my body needs I decided to invest in Multivitamins. I heard about this specific one through some random person's Instagram account on the explore page and randomly decided to try them. I'm super glad I decided to get these because they taste and smell soooooo good! Also they contain no gelatin, dairy, eggs, or other animal byproducts. Also a fun fact, did you know gelatin is made from the bone marrow and connective tissues of animals? 
A beauty product that I absolutely loved for the month of October is Lush's Cup O Coffee face mask. I have been wanting to try this for quite some time and due to hellish breakouts as of late I decided to finally treat myself (and my skin). This smells soooo good and makes my skin super soft after each use. I usually use this in the morning as a little wake-me-up and pick me up for my skin. I don't use this every single day since it is also an exfoliant and I don't want to overwork my skin, leading to more breakouts. I also use this in the shower for a total body scrub as well! I will definitely be repurchasing this soon because I'm almost out and I've only had this for a little over two months! 
If you love the smell of coffee and feel your skin needs a little TLC I would highly recommend looking into this mask. I have super dry skin and this doesn't strip my skin of any moisture at all! If anything is always leaves my skin feeling hydrated and rejuvenated! 
Now to everyone's favorite part: A N I M E.
I have three animes that I wanted to recommend to you guys and they all vary in genre. The first one is called Keijo!!! and it's more of those "sporty" animes. It's very different from a lot of the sport animes already out there because the sport they play (called Keijo) allows only female players and the goal of the game is to knock your opponent off the "Land" (the playing field) and into the water, but the catch is the players can only use their breasts or butts to do so. It's a total fan service type anime but I did not think I would be so into the show like I am now. The second anime is called Is It Wrong To Try To Pick Up Girls In A Dungeon? and yes, I know this anime is what everyone was watching last summer or whatever, but I already admitted to myself that I'm an idiot for not having started the series sooner. I am all heart-eyes for Bell-Kun and totally ship him and Hestia together. The anime focuses on Bell-Kun, an adventurer in his world, and among all the other adventurers out there his goal isn't to gain all the wealth or riches but the girls. He serves his Goddess, Hestia, and the two work together to strengthen one another both physically, mentally, and emotionally. The last anime, Orange,  is a tear-jerker. Although it is quite frustrating as the show progresses, but not as frustrating as Kimi Ni Todoke. The general story of the anime is focused on this girl named Naho that receives a letter from her future self. In this letter her future self is advising her to help save her new from Kakeru from dying. As Naho is trying to change the future you see how that effects her, Kakeru, and her friends. Although the ending is a bit bittersweet and I was kind of hoping for something different, I still enjoyed the anime over all.

I watched two movies last month that left a fairly good impression on me. They're both Korean films, but they are both subtitled so you don't have to worry about not being able to understand the films. The first film is called Train To Busan and it's basically about the zombie apocalypse hitting South Korea. My friend Deanna recommended this to me and I thought I'd give it a watch.There were some scenes throughout the film that I couldn't help but LOL at or kind of go WTF? and you just have to watch the film itself to see what I mean. I still very much enjoyed this film from beginning to end because once the action starts it just does not stop and you're literally on the edge of your seat to see what happens next. I admit, I was kind of hoping for a different ending, but the ending wasn't so bad that it ruined the whole film. I randomly stumbled upon the second film, Hope, on Netflix. This movie is about a pretty controversial topic so those who are a bit sensitive may not enjoy this film all too much. To summarize, the film is about an 8 year old girl and her family who are trying to cope with life after the girl is sexually assaulted. If you are planning on watching this movie, make sure you have some tissue boxes on hand because this movie is rather emotional. 

To end things I have two song recommendations for you guys! If you've been following me on Snapchat then you'd know I'm very much into oldies / 80s music. Hall and Oates is my current favorite as of late so there's not surprise that I'm going to be mentioning one of their songs. "One On One" by Hall and Oates has been on constant repeat for the month of October and every time it came on my Pandora it just lifted my mood instantly. I saw that they were going to be in Nashville sometime in late November, but then I was depressed to hear it was cancelled. I regret not going to the Pilgrimage Festival this year because they were performing!!! The second song "Keep Forgettin" by Michael McDonald was also on repeat and was stuck in my head for almost two weeks straight. It's super catchy and you can't help but sing along to it.

And that's it for this month's (late) favorites. I hope you guys enjoyed reading it! See you guys in my November Favorites!
