Hello lovely people of the internet! Another month has gone by so fast! I mean, can you believe it? Winter is coming to an end while spring is slowly greeting us. How are you feeling about the changing seasons?
Today, I bring you my monthly favorites post. These are the things that I absolutely enjoyed in the month of February whether it was books, music, tv, movies, ect. I’ll be sharing my favorite sushi restaurant in this month’s segment.
Let’s get started!
The Fiery Heart by Richelle Mead. I absolutely adore Richelle Mead. The world she created in Vampire Academy is one of my favorites! In her spin-off series, we follow alchemist Sydney Sage as she goes on a journey of self-discovery and treads a dangerous path of love with a vampire.
Dun. Dun. Dunnnn.
It goes without saying that this book was utterly AH-MAZING. I was drawn in from the very first page and yearn for the next book! I haven’t been in a reading mood lately, but this book put me in the mood with its swoon-worthy male protagonist, Adrian Ivashkov and the heart-pounding action that follows Sydney and her friends. The ending was a major cliffhanger, and reading the synopsis for the next book, Silver Shadows, leaves my heart aching.
I. NEED. THE. NEXT. BOOK.
February was full of love for Imagine Dragons. I particularly love Look How Far We’ve Come and Cover Up. These are songs from one of their first EP’s Hell and Silence.
Orange is the New Black
In this Netflix original, we are delve into the life of Piper Chapman and her experience in prison. With every person she meets there is a story behind their sentence. As the show progresses, we see the past unravel and start to feel empathy for these women.
At first, I thought the show was a little risque. There is nudity and profanity, but it’s nothing that I haven’t already been exposed too. Of course, it’s always hard to adjust, but in the end it is totally worth it to stick around.
I love the characters and their different tropes. You have druggies, gays, crazies, and sane women who have committed terrible crimes like murder. I also like that no character is one-sided, they are all two dimensional with realistic personalities and life altering decisions.
Season 1 is currently on Netflix and I highly recommend this show if you’re looking for something new to watch. I cannot wait for season 2 to be available. The ending of season 1 was…
It literally left me wanting more, wondering what on earth will happen to Piper.
Favorite Beauty Product
Rimmel London Scandal Eyes Lycra Flex Mascara
I’m not a mascara-wearing kind of girl, but lately I’ve been wanting to be a little bit more girly. (I’ve even started to wear dresses on occasion to work). While at Wal-Mart, I went in search for a mascara and found Rimmel London’s Scandal Eye Mascara. I absolutely fell in love with the product! My lashes have never looked so full, long, and attention-grabbing. I got compliments from my friends at work and even Kevin (the boyfriend) noticed that there was something different with my face :P
I really like the dramatic look that the mascara heightens and if you’re looking for that, then this is definitely a new mascara for you! The only negative drawback is that it’s not waterproof, but who needs that? Well, unless you are emotional (like me) and cry because of a good book.
My boyfriend Kevin loves food. It’s a good thing because at least we can be fat together. He makes me comfortable, which in turns allows me to stuff my face. Before Kevin, I ate the food of my people (Mexican food), and rarely ate food from other cultures. I’ve had Olive Garden (American-Italian food), American-Chinese food like Panda Express, and your American burger joints.
I never in my life had tried sushi or even wanted to try it because it did not look appetizing. After some coaxing, Kevin and his mom took me to Yama Sushi and I fell in love.
Yama is an all you can eat buffet that cost $20 a person. It’s expensive but totally worth it. I didn’t even try your regular California Rolls. Nope. I went for the pretty exotic stuff that Kevin and his mom ordered. I ate mostly everything with the exceptions of a few spicy rolls (I may be Mexican but I do have a spice tolerance ;).
Nyan Cat: Lost In Space
Have you heard about Nyan Cat? No? He’s the cat that has a pop tart for a body! In Nyan Cat: Lost In Space, the objective is to complete the word of the day by collecting pies with letters in them, get a high amount of multipliers by collecting combos and milk. You also want to collect coins because you can buy a different theme and change the costume on Nyan! Last but not least, you want to achieve a high goal in distance. I am awful at this last bit.
Tip: Try not to fall off the edges of space.
Nyan Cat: Lost In Space is FREE for Androids, iPhones, and Tablets :)
Oh, February, you were good to me. I only hope that March is also good and filled with many more adventures and sushi. I want more sushi!
