My Favorite Things: September 2015

September 3, 2015

This is the first time I’m going to participate in Raisa of‘s My Favorite Things link-up. For this month, the host of this wonderful link-up is Tara. I was actually thinking twice whether or not I should join the link-up because I have my own Favorite Fridays blog series but since this one is a bit different (I only have to write once a month and talk about what my favorites [stress on the s which makes it plural] are/were of the previous month as opposed to talking about one certain thing once or twice a month [or so I plan to do so again]), I joined in.

So, here are my favorites for the month.

Music: This Evening Acoustic Playlist on Spotify

I thank Spotify for free music! If I’m not listening to my personal playlists and OPM, I listen to this. Current favorite out of this playlist is Song About A Song  by Alana Henderson (the lyrics just contain too much feels!!!).

Books: Stupid is Forevermore, Miriam Defensor-Santiago and Too Busy Not To Pray
2015-09-03 05.10.55 1
2015-09-03 05.11.12 1

I already have a lot of unread books in my stack of books but I’m halfway in both of these books. The first one makes me laugh whenever I’m commuting to work and the latter makes me think about my prayer life on weekends. I desire to finish both of them before September ends!

Mobile App: City 2048

I know a lot of people are really familiar with the 2048 game that drove a lot of people crazy! Well, City 2048 is like a 3D version only this time you won’t be dealing with numbers, but different fields to grow a Great City. It’s offline so sometimes when I’m waiting for something, I play it to ease the boredom away.

Girl Things: Maybelline’s BB Stick, Wet n Wild Gloss and Shine Lipstick E81422, and Nivea Creme

Most of my friends know how a total noob I am with make-up. So me sharing little of what I know already means a lot! I prefer Maybelline’s BB Stick over the BB Cream because it’s not sticky and the texture is powder-like. The lipstick I use is from my boyfriend’s mother, it’s the first time I have a Wet n Wild lippie so it’s kinda new to me but I like the shade and it lasts longer than my other lipsticks. The Nivea Creme I use as a moisturizer before applying anything to my face after taking a bath. I love the fact that it leaves my skin so soft!


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

      I’m a Maybelline Baby too!!! But rn I’m using Nivea Lip Care and it’s good ???

    Yay for participating! I’m so glad you decided to join in on the fun!

    That “City 2048” thing sounds DANGEROUS LOL. 2048 was so addicting for me, so I can only imagine how addicting it’d get for me if I tried it out. My curious nature is strong, though, so I’m sure I will be checking it out, haha!

    And that Nivea Creme is a product I’ve never seen before! I’ve used Nivea products before, but the creme is totally new! I’ll have to keep an eye out for it! ^^

      Hey, Tara!!! Thanks for reading my entry for this month.

      It pretty much is, actually. The fact that it’s offline makes it “playable” anytime, anywhere when I’m bored.

      It’s totally good!!! Didn’t harm my skin one bit, only made it softer. 🙂 I think the packaging varies from one country to another, not quite sure about that.

    I’ve been meaning to vlog my favorite things but my boyfriend left and he’s the one with the nice studio set-up.

    Good thing the Maybelline bb stick worked for you! It makes my skin oily. Sayang cos it’s so cheap!

    • Reply Rej Relova September 6, 2015 at 12:31 pm

      I hope you do when he comes back! I’d love to watch the vlog. Also, yes! I tried other BB Creams before but they just don’t work for me. Maybelline is my go-to product for make-up essentials.

    I’m a total noob when it comes to make-up too! I need help when picking out the right shade of face powder/creams which usually ends up with me not buying any. Haha

    • Reply Rej Relova September 6, 2015 at 12:33 pm

      I just choose whatever’s the safest! HAHA.

  • Reply Jhanz September 6, 2015 at 9:59 pm

    I’ve been hearing a lot of people raving / getting crazy about City 2048 but I never got around to downloading it because my phone is soooo… old. And beaten. Ha ha. Mainly use it to update things, but other than that, it’s a pain. Haha. 🙁

    Now I’m curious about Miriam’s book (been meaning to read it but never bought it because I still have a huge pile of to-be-read books). Oh well! Hehe! 😀

    • Reply Rej Relova September 7, 2015 at 9:35 am

      A lot of people said that Stupid is Forevermore is better than the first one. I have yet to review if that’s true or not! LOL.

  • Reply Raisa September 7, 2015 at 1:25 pm

    Thank you for joining our linkup! <3 I was so obsessed with 2048. City 2048 looks dangerous! XD And oohh, I'm very interested in that BB stick! I have a foundation stick but it's been breaking me out, although I love that it's not sticky nor leaves my face shiny. I think a BB stick sounds great!

    • Reply Rej Relova September 7, 2015 at 5:03 pm

      It is very dangerous 🙁 HAHA. I had to set a timer for myself when playing. I keep saying, “Okay, last”. Then I end up playing another five rounds. 🙁

      The Maybelline BB Stick does that for me! No sticky feeling plus it leaves like uhm, a matte finish. (Not sure about that part because I’m a make-up noob lol).

    I’ve used the Maybelline BB Cream before pero hindi sya nagwork sa akin. Sweaty kasi ako kaya when I go out tapos sobrang init, nag papatch yung BB cream all over my face. :((( How about yung Wet n Wild lipstick? Maganda ba sya? 🙂

    • Reply Rej Relova September 9, 2015 at 10:11 am

      I like the BB Stick better than the BB Cream because it’s not sticky! Powder like texture ? And yes, it’s actually my first time to try the Wet n Wild lippie and now I use it almost everyday! I just discovered something yesterday: It lasts longer when I apply a lip lacquer before applying the lippie!!!

  • Reply Lea Colar September 10, 2015 at 9:46 pm

    Maybelline is superb! 🙂 <3
