The weeks are passing by so quickly.. where did almost half the year go?! That the weeks are passing quickly has probably to do with the fact that I’m actually busy doing stuff and not sitting at home all day. On one hand this is really good, because it means I am productive and not just procrastinating.. On the other hand, it also means the time is passing by ~ and I haven’t really done many of the things on my to-do list for this year. It’s not like I need to check off everything on this list, but there is just so much I want to do, though never seem to get to.
At least I’m managing to make a favourites post this time! And there’s a playlist with all my favourite songs from May. So please enjoy listening to the songs while reading. And let me know what songs you’ve been into recently!
As always, a tea favourite first. This time it’s loose tea from a supermarket. I never noticed you could fill up the tea of your choice at the supermarket, but at the Kaufland in my area there is a tea bar. There are many interesting flavours and I hope I can try more soon. So far I’ve tried the Green Tea Cappucino Caramell which is so nice!
I’ve wanted a Fjäll Räven Kanken for such a long time and I finally got one! It’s the Re-Kanken in Ox Red and I love it so much! I really like the dark red colour and the fact that it’s made from recycling material makes it even better. Even though the backpack does not look that big, it can fit a lot. It easily fits an A4 size notepad and a 1 liter bottle. It has a little pocket in the front with a zipper for easy access and a little pocket on each side. It also has an integrated pocket in the back of the main pocket, where you could store a laptop. I’ve been using my Fjäll Räven nonstop and I feel like I will use it for a long time!
I got this shirt from RedBubble at the beginning of the year. Since it has been really warm the past weeks, I could wear it a lot. For all those fangirls & boys out there, you know what this shirt is about (~^_^~) What I really like about the shirt is the simple design and the fact that not everyone immediately know what it’s about. I also really like the mix of English/Korean on the shirt, I think it looks nice. For everyone who hasn’t got any clue what this shirt is about.. just look at my next favourite!
A music favourite that I couldn’t include in my playlist and also deserves a mention here is BTS’ 血、汗、淚 (Blood, Sweat & Tears) Japanese Version. I love both the korean and japanese version of the song. I’ve watched the mv for the korean version 피 땀 눈물 so many times, because it is just beautiful and aesthetic and artsy af. When the japanese version came out, I watched that one many times as well. Both mv’s have amazing cinematography. The korean version has a more classy vibe, while the japanese version is more grungy. I’m still not really sure about the entire story and meaning behind the WINGS concept, but I guess we’ll never really find out. Let’s say the story and theories are up for interpretation and the fandom is doing a really good job. Plus I find the concept really inspiring.
Apparently this mv is the last one for th WINGS era and the storyline has ended now. I am really excited to see what BTS comes up with next!
Can I call this one a beauty favourite? I am not sure and I don’t think this category will be featured too often, since I don’t try too many beauty related products. However I’ve been loving the Face and Body Cleanser from Lush. The one I have is calles Let the Good Times Roll and it smells like sweet popcorn. It even has popcorn in it. It seems a little pricy, but you get a lot of use out of the product. I’ve been using mine for over two months and the small sized container is still about 70% full. I use it mainly to clean my face. It rubs off all the dead skin and oil, but is very gentle. My skin feels fresh and soft after using it.
As I told you before, it’s been super warm here the past few weeks. And I am so glad that our flat has a balcony! The balcony is facing North-East towards the backyard. It seems a bit unfortunate at first, because there is only the morning sun to enjoy there. But these days when it was really hot we could sit on the balcony in the shade. It was like the balcony was our living room, we drank coffee, listened to music and read our books in the afternoon. I am not a summer person, because the heat makes me exhausted, but being able to spent the time on our balcony made it bearable.
So far for my May favourites. I still can’t believe it’s month 6 out of 12 already. I hope we can all spend the second half of the year well. And maybe have some summer adventures soon?!
Thank you for reading so far. Let me know what your favourites in the month of May were! Read you soon!
