Weeb Favorites 2017

May 31, 2017

Hey, loves! Back with another "favorites" kind of post. Expect a lot of anime mentions, because my inner weeb has unleashed itself once again. (Hence the title) Also Nashville's annual anime convention, also known as Middle Tennessee Anime Convention / MTAC, was a couple months ago. Therefore, I felt it was rather necessary and expected that a lot of my favorites were going to be anime-related haha.
Some items I wanted to mention are the things I got from MTAC. And I seriously am so happy with all my purchases that I lowkey gave myself a pat on the back. The first are posters, which I got for $4 each. My favorite one out of the bunch is the Himouto Umaru-chan one. I have probably watched the anime over 3 times already because it is basically an anime about me. (Side note: The series just released on DVD yesterday! Go get it now on Amazon for $40) This is my go-to anime when I'm feeling sad because it always cheers me up. Also no surprise here that I also got a Yuri! On Ice poster, which I recently got signed by figure skating Olympian, Jason Brown! There were a bunch of other Yuri On Ice posters, but I felt this captured Yurio's personality the best. And the last poster is of Sailor Moon, of course, another one of my favorite animes. I am so in love with all these posters, I love looking at them hanging up on my wall. 

My overall, hands down, favorite purchase from MTAC was this super cute pug plushie! I named it Sasuke, because it seemed fitting at the time for some reason. I almost didn't get him because I was also eyeing the sloth plush at first, but I'm very glad I went with the pug. I'm ashamed at myself for even second-guessing on whether or not to get the pug! But he is my new cuddle buddy and I am suffering from severe cute-aggression whenever I see it because I want to squeeze it's head off!!

Television Shows

  1. The first anime is a cutes-y anime called Gabriel Dropout. This show is nothing but irony. It is about an angel named Gabriel who just graduated from Angel School as the top student. She was ambitious, cheerful, and an overall role model to the other angel students. Since graduating she is sent down to Earth to help humans find happiness. However one day she comes across MMOs and from there it all goes downhill. She becomes lazy, a complete gamer-shut-in, and doesn't care to help humans whatsoever. I would say Satania is my all-time favorite character and is what makes the show pretty comical. 
  2. The second anime is called Kiss Him, Not Me. This was one of the funniest animes I've watched in a while. It is about a girl named Kae Serinuma, who is an otaku and fujoshi. What that means is that she loves anime/manga, and also "boy love." She doesn't care too much about falling in love and would much rather ship two boys together! She is one hundred percent okay with watching from the sidelines and seeing two boys fall in love. The first two episodes had me laughing so much, and probably because I can relate to the main character and her otaku/weeb vibes. The anime is done, but the manga is still ongoing, so if you're still wanting more after finishing the short 12-episodes of the anime, then you can probably read the manga somewhere online! 
  3. The last anime I'm going to talk about is My Hero Academia. I kept seeing this as one of the top watched animes on Crunchyroll, but never paid much attention to it. Then my friends kept talking about it, so one day when Eshie and Monty came over, they put this anime on and I did not expect for me to love it as much as I do now. This anime is about a world where super heroes and villains exist. They have these things called "Quirks" which is the term for their super power. The main character's name is Deku, whose dream is to become one of the greatest super heroes like the one and only All Might. However his dreams of becoming a hero are crushed when he is told he is "quirk-less." However, one day he crosses paths with an unlikely person and from there his story of becoming the greatest super hero takes off. I don't want to give away too much because that would just ruin all the greatness of the show. highly highly highly recommend you guys watch this anime!!
Fashion + Beauty

I lied. My overall favorite purchase from MTAC is this One Punch Man shirt. Such a great anime/manga and Saitama is bae af. So many people have told me how much they love this shirt, and it has just been my shirt for everyday wear. If I'm not sure what to wear, I grab this. A night out with friends? I pick this shirt. I'm sure people probably think I don't own any other shirts than this because I've worn it so much. I tried searching for it online, but I'm afraid I came up empty handed. 

I have normal - dry skin (mostly dry, but normal on a good day) but there are days where I can get a little oily in my T-zone. And don't even get me started on how freakishly large my pores are. So when Milk Makeup first released their Blur Stick, that was advertised to help "blur" the appearance of pores, I was all for it. So I was super duper happy that I was sent a free mini sample of their Blur Stick when I ordered from their website! I would say that in my opinion this is geared more towards people with oily skin, but this does wonders even on someone like me who has drier skin. My pores are non-existent whenever I use this and really does keep the oil at bay! Without a doubt I'm going to purchase the full size of this before my mini runs out! (And that's probably going to have to be soon, because I have used this every single day before I apply my face makeup)
Lately I've been wearing very minimal eye makeup, mostly just mascara nowadays. And at first I didn't really care or go to great lengths (no pun intended) to find a really good mascara. I have sad Asian lashes that are short, sparse, and super straight, so usually with majority of mascaras that I would use, they would go limp and flat by the end of the day, regardless of how lengthening or volumizing the mascara claimed to be. But this mascara changed my whole mindset on mascara and that I should seriously up my lash-game. The bristles glide effortlessly against my lashes and has not clumped on me once. Every single lash is coated evenly and I'm just so in love with this. For $20, yes I would most definitely spend the money on this mascara because there is just something about it that isn't like those other mascaras on the market. In my opinion, probably one of the best mascaras I have used EVER.
Round of applause for NYX because their Dewy Setting Spray is something that has become a "must" in my beauty routine. I feel so incomplete when I don't use this and it surprisingly has lasted me for quite a long time, for having using it almost every single day. This is like a Heaven Sent for those with drier skin, or for those who love that natural and dewy kind of look. The mist is a bit "chunky" and uneven at times, but I don't mind it too much, therefore if you're not too meticulous about that stuff, then this spray is something you should check out. I got mine at Ulta and a lot of other people must really love this setting spray too, because, I kid you not, this is usually sold out every single time I check. So for those who love the dewy skin look and are on the market for an affordable setting spray, go for this one!

Cytus is a game that I have seriously been addicted to. It's basically like DDR on the iPad, but instead of your feet you use your fingers. I was introduced to this game after seeing Mei (@infrontofapple) play it on her Insta Story. I was so intrigued by the game, that I was willing to spend the $2.00 to play it. It is crazy addicting and I'm still pretty noob-ish at it, but I'm devoted to become as good as Mei. Seriously, watch her play, and you'd just be confused on how she can keep up with the notes lol. You can get this game in both the App store and in the Google Play Store! 

What are some of the things you guys are loving recently? Let me know in the comments below! I'd love to read about them!
