And so the year ender posts shall commence. Back in 2014, I started a monthly portion called “Monthly Favorites”, which died down after a year because of different million reasons I don’t remember and it was just difficult recalling which products I loved for the month. But now it’s back and hopefully I’ll start posting it again? Maybe. No promises tho.
Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children
I just watched this movie a few days ago and it was amazing!!! Though I haven’t read the series, as soon as I saw Tim Burton’s name on the opening credits I knew I was gonna love it 😉
How did I just watch this amazing film this year?!?? Like I cannot even stress how much I loved this.
DUDE. THIS FILM DOE. DAVE FRANCO. EMMA ROBERTS. IM LIVIN. I hope they do a sequel of this because I still can’t get enough.
Me, Earl and the Dying Girl
I didn’t also read the book before watching this movie. There were some people who told me they didn’t like the book so I didn’t read it. Anyway, I loved LOVED this movie. The cinematography is on point.
Alice Through the Looking Glass
“You did it Alice, an impossible thing” has been the motto of 2016 since I watched this movie. Moral of this film: Stop blaming Time for everything.
The End of The Tour
The dialogues were amazing. And it made me cry so hard. Definitely one of the best films I saw this year.
Finding Dory & Conjuring 2
We all know how these two went, backread my post from June 😛
This was deffo the best movie I have seen this year like top of the list. I loved this film so much to the extent it was the inspiration for the film I did in my Lit class. From the editing to the filming, the twists and dialogues and music.
Moonrise Kingdom & Grand Budapest Hotel
What can I say. I caught a Wes Anderson fever this year.
Me Before You
Again, I didn’t read the book because I have already guessed that the guys was gonna die based on the next book which is Me After You. But anyway, I found the movie cute and though I didn’t cry, it made me feel sad because Sam Claffin made Emily Clarke happy aw.
Lost in Translation
Oldie but a goodie tbh. Everyone go watch it. Sofia Coppola never disappoints.
In Case You Come Back by Marla Miniano & Reese Lansangan, Jamie Catt
I think this was one of the first reads of the year. I loved it so much huhuhu I’m not actually sure if it’s still available or if they only printed limited copies but if you know someone who owns this, go borrow it. Quick read but it would make you feel all the feels you never felt before. Also the illustrations are the bomb!!!
The Universe Of Us by Lang Leav
This has got to be my most favorite Lang Leav book. My favorite pieces are “Her Time”, “Someone Like You” and “Crossroads”.
Summer Days and Summer Nights by Stephanie Perkins
This was the summer version of My True Love Gave To Me. My faves would have to be “The Map of Tiny Perfect Things”, “Inertia”, “Souvenirs” and “In Ninety Minutes, Turn North”
Are We There Yet by David Levithan
Short read but anything from David Levithan is greaaat
All The Bright Places by Jennifer Niven
I’m not entirely sure if I finished this early this year or late last year and since I didn’t do anymore Monthly Favorites last year I guess I’ll just include this here. If you follow me on Twitter I rave about this book sooo much and apparently it’s getting turned into a movie. :p
Isla and the Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins
I liked this better than Lola and The Boy Next Door, but still not gonna top Anna and The French Kiss :p
It Gets Worse by Shane Dawson
Shane Dawson is the Youtuber that I started watching this year he’s so funny and amazing like I want to be bffs with him. The Lottery is one of my faves from this book. Also the one about his Grandma (wait, I think that was in his first book but ok). It’s a super funny book but there are life lessons in each one lolz. Go check it out :p
This Is How You Lose Her by Junot Diaz
Let’s pretend I finished this book. HAHAHA. I ended up reading halfway through in the library on my phone while waiting for my classmates when we were making the class mascot and after the mascot thing, I forgot to finish it. But so far so good!!
The Love That Split The World by Emily Henry
I actually forgot the plot of this but I have recommended this book to several of my friends so I think I did love it. Lol sorry this was one of the first reads of the year and January was a long time ago so yeah.
AHS: My Roanoke Nightmare
By far the best season of AHS since Coven. This was the comeback. The Renaissance. TAISSA.
I LOVED IT SO MUCH. But now when I see lights flickering I get so triggered I can’t. Even pools and walls. The world isn’t safe anymore.
I just watched the 3rd season but can I just say this TV Show is so real. It’s scary because it’s too real and too intense. It could really happen in real life but it won’t but it might ya feel. HAHA
That 70’s Show
I’m halfway through the 3rd season and yes I know the ending already because I saw spoilers on Tumblr even before I knew the title of the show and before I even wanted to watch it. No I am obsessed, my friends. I AM OBSESSED. I love all the characters so much. I feel like they’re the Friends characters but 70’s version lol idk. HAAANGIN OUT DOWN THE STREET
I know these were so 2015 and NMD’s are now the shit, but I don’t like NMD’s and I think I’ll be sticking to Superstars :p Anyway I also know everyone has a pair but it’s a classic pair. And I didn’t get the white basic ones. My dad also got the black ones he bought for me because they were too big on me bc wrong size lolz. So I got the dusty rose ones earlier in the year.
I sooo want lots of these. I only have one 😦 I’m planning to get more in the coming year. heh
Converse Jack Purcell
These shoes are so comfortable and it’s most comfortable pair of Converse I have. I don’t mind walking in these all day. I actually have already tried, the sole gets dirty easily but idc they’re comfy af. They’re a little more expensive than the normal Converse low tops but I swear they’re so worth it because they have that insole like the Lunarlon ones from Nike (duh bc nike and converse are sister companies) BUT not the neon green ones in the Roshes.
Ever since I started wearing my uniform, I had to wear no show socks when I wear my flats or even my heels so I have many pairs now and I tried to use them while wearing sneakers and THEY LOOK SO MUCH BETTER. Like, the sneakers on my feet look better heh.
I started loving this trend late 2015, but I carried it the whole year. I have a blue reflective one and a kinda rose gold one. :p
-Shane Dawson and TheGabbieShow
NEED I SAY MORE. I super love these two. Lolz. Also because of Shane, I now believe even more in conspiracy theories HAHAHA.
Again, another reason why I can’t sleep at night
Shiny Star Polaroid Film
These are my faaave type of film for my Instax!! I only tried it once but ahh I want to buy one again because they look so cute :(((
I was so obsessed with The Black Tapes during my summer break ugh I hope they return soon. Lore is also quite good!
Remember the post I did last year as one of the year ender posts? Yeah well, I don’t really have time to do another one because there are 3 more (YES 3 MORE) posts before the year ends tomorrow. Anyway, here are some pics from my camera roll. Most of them are from my trip to HK on my birthday and some are the majestic sunsets I have ever seen.
That is aall xx
