#1 Flower Crowns – These cute little accessories have been so famous this past spring and also in the summer. With the rise of the bohemian trend, everybody has been rocking these at concerts, festivals or just with a boho outfit. I love this one I have from a local place but I’m sure you can find some pretty ones at Accessorize too. I had seen a very pretty one with metal leaves and white roses but I couldn’t justify owning two of these.
#2 Hair Tie Set – The set of blue stretchy hair ties are from Forever 21. They are great for tying my hair up in the summer or topknots because they don’t crease my hair or make it look funny. Since they are made with the softest elastic material, they don’t pull out or damage my hair.
#3 L’oreal True Match BB Cream- This has been my favourite BB cream from the past six months but it makes more sense in this season because it doesn’t sweat off and the only BB cream I’ve tried till date that doesn’t make me look ghastly white. I have a yellow skin undertone and most BB creams have a pinky tone which doesn’t suit me. This one in Gold suits me so well and also stays on for a quite a long time.
#4 Pink Lipcolours – The one in silver packaging is the Maybelline Pink Alert in POW 4 – a beautiful, bright, fuschia pink in a matte formulation. The Gold packaging is a glossy, medium,warm pink shade called Crème Pink from the beauty section of Forever21 and it is so creamy and moisturizing and great colour payoff. A keeper!
#6 Looking For Alaska – Last summer, The Fault in my Stars was my favourite book and this summer I’ve been hooked onto another John Green bestseller. This one surprisingly came out before TFIOS and I’m glad I got around to reading it. It is another bittersweet, growing up, teenage story with hints of love, friendship and hardships but one thing I do admit is that it is in fact better than The Fault in Our Stars.
#7 Pitch Perfect 2 – The first movie Pitch Perfect was an obvious favourite for being a feel good high school movie and this one pleasantly surprised me too. It was really good as a sequel and I enjoyed all the Acapella performances so much. There were high hopes for this movie and it didn’t disappoint. The acapella medleys were fabulous and it also has the added character of Hailee Seinfield and a bit of an emotional but happy end.
#8 Music – I have two favourite songs because I couldn’t narrow it down to just one. I love ‘Someone New’ by Hozier who took the music world by the storm this year with his single ‘ Take me to church’ but the rest of his album is pretty good as well. I also like Heal by Tom Odell, another name I know from the The Fault in Our Stars soundtrack but I found this one on another soundtrack. I first heard the song on the movie ‘If I Stay’ and then I researched a bit and found out that it was Tom Odell and I have been enjoying listening to it so much. A nice calming, slow song. The kind of songs he does best.
And those are my favourites!
