MAY FAVORITES OF 2016

Hey guys!

This post seems to be a tad bit late. However, there's a lot of different products that I've been in love with in the month of May, which made this post slightly larger than I thought it would be. I decided to put them into categories since there's so many.

BEAUTY & SKINCARE

I'm in love with the Palladio Rice Powder foundation. I picked it up on a whim during finals week as a treat to myself for surviving. I don't usually wear foundation, but I wanted one for when I want to contour. I was able to find the right color that matches my skin tone where it looks like I'm not wearing foundation.


I wrote a review of the Valentia Royal Rose Hydrating Serum a while ago. This serum has quickly become a favorite of mine. Not only does it hydrates the skin, it also dries fast so I don't have to wait for it to sink into my skin.

Another skincare favorite is the Apothecary Tea Tree Oil. I wrote a review on this product a long time ago, but it's only now that I've started to use it daily instead of rarely using it. Before you try this out, make sure you're not allergic to it by mixing one drop of tea tree oil with four drops of a carrier oil like coconut or jojoba. Then apply it to an area of your skin to see if it'll cause a reaction. I use this oil as spot treatment for my acne.

BOOKS

I raved about 'the life-changing magic of tidying up' by Marie Kondo last week. I've spent my time tidying up my room, but for some reason, I'm losing my motivation to keep going. I believe it's because of how much papers I own and how many items I have to go through. There's so much stuff, that I'm losing sight of why I'm tidying up in the first place. To remind myself why I started cleaning, I read through parts of the book again and visualize the reason why I started tidying. It definitely helps me whenever I start losing ground in my tidying.



COMIC BOOKS

I have been in love with 'Bitch Planet' for what feels like years (despite the fact that it was published in 2014). The characters are engaging, and I love how there's different ethnicity and sizes. The plot line seems simple enough, but it makes you think. There's essays pertaining to race, women, etc. in the backs of certain issues and other great columns that can be found in the back of each issue. Some of the extras don't get printed in some reprints, but I definitely recommend reading the series even if you can't find the issues that have them. You can always just borrow an issue off of someone else who does have them.

The next comic book series is Fanboys VS Zombies. I'm currently on issue #5 since I took a break in reading to tidy up. This series is hilarious and has a lot different references. The zombie apocalypse takes place because of an infected hot dog during Comic Con where our main characters are trying to get out and survive. I love the vibrancy of the comic and the characters themselves are relatable.


ZINES

Warden of the Woods is delightful tree/humanoid person? Honestly, he looks like someone who got stuck in a log. He's adorable in his naivety, and I love all the zines I have about him. The shop owner was also nice enough to send me the art prints and a drawing on a sticker sheet since I bought so many zines from that series.


Another zine is the Salty zine from mermaidblobs. I reviewed a Halloween bundle from this shop earlier in April, and I had decided to buy from her again. I really love the simplicity of the black and white coloring in this particular zine. Her art really inspires me to write something fictional so check out her shop.


There's all my favorites for the month of May! What did you love in May?

That's it for now! Thanks for reading!
