Hey you guys! Today I want to share with you some non-book-related things I’ve loved this year: movies, music, makeup, etc.
Also, I want to just make a small announcement: Next year, I’m planning to start adding a little bit of a makeup/beauty element to my blog. I’m planning on going to cosmetology school instead of college and I want to start really getting into that realm and sharing my opinions on different products.
Now that that’s out of the way, let’s get into this thing!
Thor: Ragnarok (2017) was downright amazing! I ended up seeing it a second time simply because it is so much fun to watch. This is my review.
The Hunger Games series (2012-2015) did not disappoint after reading the books. It’s a series I both hate and love- hate because the plot still sickens me and because some of my favorite characters die, love because it’s so powerful and I do truly love the characters.
Titanic (1997) could have gone without the crazy amount of cussing and sexual scenes (we skipped through those), but other than that I did love the movie. I related so much to Jack and Rose and I do wish the ending had been different.
Le Monde a l’Envers by Zaho: I discovered Zaho back a couple years ago when I found French musicals (she was playing Morgane in La Legende du Roi Arthur at the time) and when she started releasing songs from this album I knew I’d love it, and I do. It was released in February and my favorite song is probably “Salamalek”, but I really can’t decide.
Acte 1 by Charlie Boisseau: I am so so so proud of Charlie for getting himself an album! I loved him the first time I heard him sing as Lancelot in La Legende du Roi Arthur and he did not disappoint with his debut album. His voice is so unique and I love his music style. My favorite song from Acte 1 is “Jonathan”.
Les Trois Mousquetaires Musical: This is my most recent French musical love! I adore the soundtrack (particularly Olivier Dion and his beautiful voice).
The Jaclyn Hill x Morphe Palette: I seriously just got this for Christmas, but I have used at least one shade from it every single day since. The shades are stunning and versatile and they swatch like a dream.
Nyx Lip Lingerie Liquid Lipstick in the shade French Maid: I love the formula and color of this lipstick; it stays all day and on me, it’s a beautiful deep purple that I love to wear when I’m feeling like a bold lip.
e.l.f Brushes: I love this brand in general, but the three brushes I have from them are the best ones I own. The dual-ended brow brush is absolutely wonderful and the eye crease brush is easy to use and blends my shadow perfectly.
Bath and Body Works Essential Oils Body Wash in the scent Almond and Vanilla: This is hands-down my favorite body wash ever. It smells wonderful and the lather is unbelievably creamy.
There were lots more things I loved this year that weren’t books, but I wanted to share my absolute favorites with you all.
What are your 2017 favorites?
