My Favorite Things: October 2015

October 8, 2015

September has been a pretty busy month for me. October’s just started and it’s making me busy double time because of the influx of projects in the office (no, I’m not complaining about this). But that means lesser time with the blog which kinda sucks because my brain has been continuously spewing out a lot of ideas that I don’t know how to start or go about it. But that won’t stop me from sharing what things I loved in September!

Here are my favorites for the last month!

Music: Regina’s Uke Jam playlist on Spotify by yours truly

I already created a playlist for my favorite Uke Songs! Feel free to listen (and follow the playlist if you like). This playlist makes me feel relaxed whenever I listen to it. Fun fact: I’m listening to it now as I write this post.

Books: Strength for Today, Seen 1:43AM

The first one, I actually got as an e-book for free from OMFLit because of a survey I answered. I haven’t started reading it yet but I want to finish it before October ends. Seems like a very inspiring book! Seen 1:43 AM is a book written by a friend. I already wrote about it here so read on if you want to find out why I included this in my favorites for the last month!

Mobile App: 1010!, First5

I love 1010 because it challenges me a lot. I couldn’t stop playing for one hour straight when I first downloaded it. It’s like a modified Tetris game. It’s offline so I could play it whenever I want. First5 is a devotional app more inclined to women and aims to connect a women’s heart to God on the first five minutes of the day. I’ve only used it for about a week or two now before proceeding with my morning devotion. Upon waking up, I immediately open it and read the entry for the day. If you want to try them, the download links are here: 1010!, First5 🙂

Girl Things: Royale’s Hot Chili and Wild Rose lippies

I wasn’t really aware that Royale (yes, the networking Royale) had make-up products. One of my aunts gave me an advance birthday gift and I had to spend it on products from my cousin who’s with Royale. I’m really surprised by how it’s really good for my lips. I love both colors + they don’t let my lips crack. Their lipsticks leave my lips smooth all day and it lasts long. Both shades look a lot like each other, but the first swatch is Wild Rose and the second one is Hot Chili. Wild Rose is more on a red shade while Hot Chili is a bit pinkish (I think it should be the other way around but that’s how it is).


That’s it for this month! I’m including the rules below just in case you want to join in 🙂

    So far, October’s been really nice to me. I’m currently enjoying my “Secret Garden” Colouring book, which means it’s the one controlling my time while I’m out of the internet. By the way, that book “Seen 1:43AM” looks really interesting, so where can I get a copy Ate? 🙂

      At least you have a hobby offline! 🙂 It’ll be released in bookstores on the 21st of November 🙂

    Those lipsticks are lovely; I worry about wearing lipsticks because of my mouth and face shape, but at some point I’ll have to get over it and try!

      I had hesitations like that before! The only reason why I suddenly developed an interest for make-up is because I’m working in a very corporate center in Manila! Haha. Plus, the bloggers I follow really know about it!

    1010 looks obsessive! I wanna try it but at the same time, I don’t because that’s all I’m gonna do! XD

      I play it a few minutes everyday 🙁 It’s addicting like 2048. Haha. I play them alternately.

    Our church holds yearly tours to Israel. While they don’t have Visa, it’s still a bit expensive considering there are no direct flights from Manila. Would love to go there someday!

      It’s actually in my bucketlist. Who would not want to walk in the land where Jesus once walked on 🙂

    […] couple of times in this blog how much of a make-up noob I am (refer to these two posts, here and here). I’ve slowly been trying to come out of my shell and be more interested in and comfortable […]
