April has been wonderful, but I’m excited to get to May, because it is the end of the semester and also the month of my 21st birthday! Here are some of the things I enjoyed last month.
I tried something just because it’s ~trendy~ this month, and it totally paid off. I bought the Milk Bar cookie mix because Taylor Swift loves the bakery. I admit it, OK? Sometimes my only basis for doing things is T-Swift. I’m not ashamed. I chose the “compost cookie” mix and it was delicious! I highly recommend it. The bakery’s website also has a ton of recipes I plan on trying!
I’ve tried a few of the face masks at Lush and the BB Seaweed mask is by far my favorite. It leaves me feeling clean and refreshed. I’m not good at determining if using a face mask actually improves my skin a ton, because my skin is pretty clear, but I know that this mask feels great, smells great and is affordable. I definitely can’t complain.
I’m always watching TV. This is a fact. Right now, it’s Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt on Netflix. I’m not done with season 2 yet, but what I’ve seen so far is just as funny as the first season! It’s such a wacky show and Tina Fey’s guest cameo is hilarious. As far as consistency goes, this show successfully makes the second season blend seamlessly in with the first, which is really uncommon, in my experience with watching. Something always feels disjointed after the first season with a lot of shows, whether it be the writing or the visual aesthetics, but not Kimmy and the gang.
In terms of music, I have the new The 1975 album, “I Like It When You Sleep, for You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware of It,” on repeat. I spontaneously went to this concert a few weeks ago with my friend Rachel and had so much fun! They put on a great show. My favorite songs from the album are “Love Me,” “The Sound” and “She’s American.” The band might be a little too over the top in their desire to be the prettiest of pretty boy rockers, but they ain’t half bad.
My gray Converse high tops have been getting a lot of wear lately. They go everywhere, from house parties and concerts to errands and class. I’m obsessed with how comfy and stylish they are. I was once someone who scoffed at the idea of wearing sneakers for anything but exercise and said sneakers weren’t fashionable, but I have been proved completely wrong. I’m sure I owe my sister $5 for saying that.
What are some of your current favorites?
