It’s already the middle August and I’m here writing about my July favourites. Great timing.
Staring with the not-so-great news, I began studying again. I have to take again my exams because I have failed them, so yay. You can almost hear through these words how happy I am. 🙄😒
But July has been quite a good months. I haven’t had many bad days. My parents went away for 5 days and having the house (almost) to myself was THE BEST. My sister and I watched Harry Potter, ate junk food, watched Game of Thrones and at least 20 episodes of Suits. Yeah. Things got out of control.
What I have loved most about this month, it’s been the beach. I went on holiday at the beginning of July and it was amazing. I was relaxed, I read a ton and looked like a tanned homeless person. I LOVED IT.
Beauty wise, I have been wearing a lot of bold lipsticks and I ADORE of all them! The new shades I bought for my birthday are spectacular (especially the Maybelline ones). On my eyes, I HAD to wear something and I decided to keep it pretty low maintenance. I curl my lashes and then put on two coats of my Clinique Chubby Lash Mascara. I had doubts about it, but it’s a good product. I have tried better ones and would not repurchase it again because of the price, but still… It was a present so… 🙂
TV wise, I haven’t really watched anything new. Something is wrong with me. I have been rewatching a lot of comedies and one of the weirdest shows I have seen is “Jane The Virgin”. It’s basically a parody of spanish telenovelas, told as a telenovela.
The protagonist, Jane, gets artificially inseminated and has to deal with the consequences of this event. The show is so funny and it’s incredibly well-made. Every single characters is amazingly crafted and has so much depth. From Rogelio to Abuela to Petra. Can’t wait to see season four this autumn!
Aside from “Jane The Virgin”, I got back into Suits. This USA Network program is so underrated. It’s so clever, witty, dramatic and breathtaking. It also deals with race, women of colour in a male-dominated workplace and some badass quotes by Harvey Specter.
I haven’t even talked about the plot. Mike Ross, bike messenger whose life is stuck, gets hired by the best lawyer of New York City (according to him), despite not having attended law school.
While I was at the beach, I had loads of time to read and after hearing high praises on “Aristotle and Dante discover the secrets of the universe”, I decided to give it a go.
And I adored it! Although at times I felt like some of the conversations between Dante and Aristotle were weird and (in my experience) a bit forced, I LOVED IT. The struggles of these two boys discovering and exploring their lives and their friendship.
It made me feel warm inside, happy and sad at the same time.
Would recommend it to EVERYBODY. Please read it. It’s truly wonderful.
I hope you liked this post (although in the middle of August). What have you been loving this month? Let me know three things you have enjoyed!
