My Favorite Things: November 2015

Here are My Favorite Things from the busy month of November.

 

The Lunar Chronicles

I finally finished Cress (3rd book) and Fairest (companion book) this month! I also got to start on Winter. I know I talk about this book series a lot but it’s just soooo good! It’s one book I recommend picking up if you’re in a reading slump or if plain and simple you want to get into reading. It’s a fast-paced page-turner.

Once I finish Winter, I hope to make a separate blog post to talk more about this book series.

My Favorite Things: October 2015

October was a month of fun and family! Some relatives spent their vacation with us and we got to bond a lot. This has been one of the most fun months I’ve had this year and I’ll tell you why through this post of My Favorite Things. (Also, congratulations to the link-up for the one-year anniversary!)

 

A Whole New World reunion

Lea Salonga and Brad Kane reunite and sing A Whole New World after 23 years! I can’t even explain how happy this video makes me feel. I’ve played it so many times over the month of October. Their voices are still so magical and as a Disney fan, I feel like a little kid again every time I listen to it.

My Favorite Things: September 2015

September was pretty much a down month for me. The weather has been terrible: insanely humid during the day and very rainy and stormy during the late afternoon/night. Such strong rains even affected the internet connections in our area during certain times of the night, regardless of what provider we were using. It was really a downer.

However, despite those negative happenings, I did still enjoy some very fun bits of September! I had a lot of time spent with family and friends and that made up for the really bad weather. Here’s a highlight post of all My Favorite Things from the month of September.

My Favorite Things: August 2015

Hello everyone! I hope you all had a lovely August and I hope for even better things for everyone this September!

August flew by so quick! I mostly spent the month being sick- two weeks of the flu and the rest of the month with an uncomfortable cough. It’s all got to do with the bad, unpredictable weather- one day it’s sunny and very humid, the next it’s chilly and rainy. On the bright side, I discovered a bunch of new things this month in the books and movies department! So here are My Favorite Things from the month of August.

 

Inside Out (2015)

Inside Out finally opened in theaters in the Philippines last August! And I got to see it with my mom during its opening weekend. It was stellar!

If you’ve been hiding under a rock, Inside Out is about little characters who heavily influence/control a certain person while trying to defeat external forces from the inside of that said person. Let’s face it, we’d be lying if we said that that whole idea was original. We’ve gotten too many versions of that already over the years: 2001’s Osmosis Jones, that Spongebob episode that featured fine dining, that 90s Nickelodeon short series Inside Eddie Johnson (especially that one episode where they featured his mind), etc.

But… what made Inside Out special is its execution. It was beautifully and creatively made. The whole thing was also very well-put together. Personally, it made me emotional at parts- without giving too much away, I enjoyed seeing Riley’s childhood memories. I also learned a lot about the importance of a good balance of emotions.

I would watch it again in a heartbeat!
