February Favourites

FINALS ARE FINALLY O V E R. And that marks the end of my second semester too ! *pats myself on the back for surviving* I didn't like this semester, it was definitely a lot tougher than my first because of two reasons ; One, obviously being that I have 2 calculation subjects and as I have mentioned several times before, I am innumerate af. Two, I was always caught up in a mess because of projects and lack of maturity and cooperation from other people. I'm the kind of person who hates group work. I just hate it. I can never be happy or satisfied with somebody else's work unless it's my own, and I'd rather do everything myself than divide tasks. 

So, back to what this post is supposed to be about ; in February cosmetics-wise I didn't love anything new because I have pretty much been using the same products. But I do have a few other favourites that I want to share. 

Music 


1. Remember - Misty Miller



This used to be one of my favourite songs when I was 15 and I forgot all about it until I saw a Burberry campaign ad on YouTube and at the end they had listed down what song it was and who sang it, and when I read the name 'Misty Miller' I was just like.. wait a minute. And that's how I rediscovered an old favourite and it has been repeated a lot throughout the whole month. I had my first heartbreak when I was 15 and at the time this song was quite relatable. Especially the '12th of March, when you broke my heart' part dang that was on frickin point. God, thinking about it now makes me laugh haha.

OH after watching this video, try searching 'Misty Miller 2015' on Google Images and tell me you aren't surprised by how this girl looks now. I had the shock of my life. I was hoping to find her making more music like these but her music genre has changed so much and she looks so different :( 


2. 101 - Walla 

I didn't know about this song until Hanis mentioned it in our WhatsApp group a few weeks ago (?) and I've loved it since. The bass, the beat. Perfection. I've been listening to it a lot these past couple of weeks, especially when I take quick breaks from studying.  The song makes me wanna do a little happy dance in my seat. I'm dubbing it my stress-relief song. 


3. See The Sun - The Kooks 
 

Another rediscovery of an old favourite this month. I listened to this song a lot when I was in Bali in 2012 so when I listen to this it brings me back to the sunny beaches and me walking around Beachwalk with the view of the ocean. Oh, good times. 

Video 

I love dance in general, and I could spend all day watching dance videos (and then attempting to dance like them in front of my mirror haha). I've always wanted to be a part of a big dance group or be in a Step Up movie (lol) so while I was watching videos I stumbled upon this one, and I loved it. The choreography is just beautiful and I love the message that it brings and the choice of song and the creativity of the whole routine. Watch the whole video, I swear it's so, so good. They deserved first place. 



Miscellaneous


Glasses 



I don't give my glasses enough attention. But I have been wearing them a lot frequently lately. My power isn't that high, 100 on the right, 75 on the left, glare 50 and 25. But I can see a lot sharper with them, and since my eyes were mostly on my computer and books, it's been helping my eye fatigue hence it deserves to be in my monthly favourites post ! Haha.

That's it for my favourites this month, not much of actual items but more to visual. I'm looking forward to my 3 week holiday - binge watching tv series, seeing Irfan and my best friends, working (?). I have so much I wanna do and I'm super excited already. (I say these things but in reality I might just be napping at home most of the time lol). Hope everyone's having a good first week of March ! Let me know if you end up liking any of my favourites too after reading this post, it's always nice to have common ground.  x

    1. Yup, on the website the colours are really different. I usually tengok Vivy Yusof's Instagram to see the real colours, cause when she wears her dUCks she usually captions the colour / material as well :) Order on fashionvalet.com !
