Happy August! Here are My Favorite Things from the month of July.
Mindanao Trip 2015
I had a chance to go on a short trip to Mindanao and it was a fun experience! The stay at Dahilayan Adventure Park, Bukidnon was one of my highlights! Read about my whole experience through my blog entry.
Sakura Koi Watercolor Set
I gained a new obsession last month: watercolor painting! (To think, I used to hate it.) Since what started out as a little art experiment ended up growing to be a hobby, I decided it was time to buy a new set of watercolors to upgrade from my old ones. And now I can say that I’m so happy I purchased this Sakura Koi 24-color set! It’s…
- Uber-portable – Check out that water brush, it eliminates the need for bringing water
- Has very pigmented colors – The closest you can get to artist-grade watercolors while staying on the higher end side of student-grade
- The most adorable watercolor set on the planet – Look at the whole palette! Look at it. It’s eye-candy with functionality!
I’ve made a few things with this set that I hope to put up soon! You can check out those works on my Instagram in the meantime. You can also check out my entry on a recent art session I had with friends.
Paper Towns and Ant-Man
I’m putting these two together because I watched them in cinemas back-to-back.
Paper Towns is one of my favorite John Green books so I was one of those geeks that was stalking the whole process of the movie. And now that I have seen it… I have to say, even if they did change a lot of things, I still enjoyed the movie a lot! Everyone knows the book will always be better so I didn’t have very high expectations for the movie version from the start. A huge mention to the stellar performances of these three boys: Natt Wolf (Quentin), Justice Smith (Radar), and Austin Abrams (Ben)- those three were perfectly cast.
As for Ant-Man, I did not know anything about it to begin with so I had low expectations. After seeing it, I came out of the theater with a smile. It’s now one of my favorite movies from the MCU. I’m now even more excited for Civil War next year. MCU Phase 3, here we come!
Rapunzel Funko Pop
Rapunzel is my favorite Disney Princess so it was a joy to see her in Funko Pop! form. Finally, right? Took Funko some dang time. But I’m glad they sort of made up for it by releasing Rapunzel two months earlier. Check out my Rapunzel Toy Review here.
