Yaaaay! Hello there! So I’ve decided that, instead of now posting about my monthly bookish wrap-up, I’ll post about the favourite things I did/ate/read/got… etc during each month, so TA-DAAAA! Here is this new monthly meme (?), My Favourites of the Month! The tags attached to these will still be “wrap-ups and TBRs” but it’ll be more than just books. So… let’s jump right into it!
Unfortunately I do not have any picture but my uncle did the best crab soup I have ever eaten/drank in a long time. The negative point was that it was very spicy as he put quite a lot of chili, but otherwise it was delicious. Yum!
I also did some overnight oatmeals with yogurt and almonds to eat for breakfast and it was so goood! Check out my board for some recipes if you’re interested!
2. I’M IN A COLOURING FRENZY
I got the colouring fever. I think that’s because I see too many people on instagram buying colouring books. But instead of joining them in the traditional way, I… downloaded a colouring app. And trust me, it’s really addictive.
The app’s name colorfy, and it’s available on playstore to download for free (I don’t know if it’s on appstore too). Not all images and colour schemes are free, you’ll have to pay for some. But on the overall I’m in love with this nice relaxing app ^^
3. I CAN’T STOP GAMING
No, I’m no hard gamer. I’m one of those people who cannot stop playing puzzle games. Yes, I admit it; I’m addicted. And I can’t seem to stop anytime soon 😛 Farm Heroes Saga, Candy Crush Soda, even Pet Rescue… You name it. I play everything. Even the new king game with soaps in it. I’m so hopeless.
4. ANIME IS BAE
As you must have noticed it was a rather good anime month. I watched the two seasons of Is This A Zombie? as well as Aldnoah.Zero, which by the way is freaking amazing. I’m particularly in love with AZ‘s OST and ISAZ season one’s opening.
5. BOOK DEPOSITORY IS AMAZHANG
Only one title: Queen of Shadows. I don’t if I’ve ever told you about how much I love the Throne of Glass series, but here I go: I. LOVE. THIS. FREAKING. SERIES. I dig it. So imagine my excitement when I got an email from BD on the 26th telling me that, as they got the books early, they’ll shipped them early! I’ll still have to wait for two weeks approximately to get my hands on this jewel, but… IT GOT DISPATCHED ON THE 26TH??? BOOOYAAAAAA!
6. GUESS WHO GOT A BLOG BUTTON?
I made it! I made it! I was googling how to make a blog button earlier this week, and I found some really helpful posts. (and I actually forgot to bookmark the page. Great job Mel -_- ) I made my button on Canva and added some html that I’ve found on a website (FOUND IT! YASSS! IT’S HERE!) and TA-DAAA! You can see it on my middle footer. I’m rather proud of how it looks, especially for a first time! Oh, and the picture’s by me 😉
7. I AM A MAGICIAN
I don’t do actual magic. I’m no wizard (unfortunately 😦 ) but I discovered an app where I could erase the background to make transparent pictures. Needless to say, I got a new game
8. MY FIRST UNI MONTH
And it’s already been one month since I now go to UoM. I am doing a BA in Law & Criminal Justice, and so far it’s really fascinating *o*
9. I GOT TAGGED A LOT
And I promise to do most of all these tags next month! Thank you to all those amazing people who tagged me ❤
10. IT WAS A BAD READING MONTH.
I think I’ve read only 2 books. Hurray me. But I’m still trying to find my own pace so I’m sure I’ll read a lot more soon!
Ooooh, and I posted about:
- How I’ll manage my time (and still failing) while going to Uni and my last preparations before the great day
- A super nice tag about Inside Out and books (and the movie just got released in my country! Yay!)
- Nice animes, namely Fate/Stay Night, Is This a Zombie? and Aldnoah Zero
- The funny adventure that I Followed the Rules is about
- A Teen Titan comic!
- How I plan to avoid spoilers
- My recognition in the blogging community (lol) and how I chose 3 quotes for 3 days
And that is it! I hope you had a good month! ❤ What were your favourite things during August? Or your favourite books? Do tell me in the comments below!
