May Favorites

Who’s ready for may favorites of the month?! Get it, may instead of my? Yeah, I know…LAME!

Music

“Without music, life would be a mistake”- Friedrich Nietzsche
Ugh, is this true or what? Music makes everything, for the most part, better. My monthly obsession is Lewis Capaldi. Oh-my-goodness does his music give me the feels. His lyrics hit me right in the heart.
It’s great listening to him, but also watching his personal videos and interviews. Here’s this guy with a heavenly voice and he’s such a GOOF! A very funny goof.

One of my new favorites of his is One:

Facebook Page

There’s nothing like scrolling through your Facebook and seeing a post that speaks to your soul. Okay, that’s a little dramatic, but you know what I mean. Sometimes, it’s nice to know others feel the same as you do.
I know some of these posts have helped me get through the day and even the night.

Gaming

Okay, so this one is for all my nerdy peeps who like to button smash the night away. Yeah, that’s right, I’m a gamer. Not a very good one I’ll admit.
I wasn’t always into games. I mean, I grew up with my older brothers obsessing over Halo and Fable. I even gave those games a shot. It wasn’t until a few years ago that I ventured from console games to PC.
I have a select few games that I love and always return to, but I’ll just pick one for now.

Elder Scrolls Online. For anyone who has played Skyrim, this game is for you! Or not. Just saying, it’s pretty fun. There’s nothing like sneaking around as a thief or fighting dragons. I’ve played a few MMORPG’s and this game has to be one of my favorites. The environment is beautiful, the voice acting is great, and the game play is super fun.

But that’s just my opinion. Don’t hate on me if you disagree.

Something I’ve Learned

How to give and take.
Wow, is it important to know when to pick and choose your battles. And that goes for pretty much everything in life. Work life, social life, family life. Knowing when it’s time to step aside, put your pride aside, and work things through is kind of essential. Otherwise, you or whoever else involved end up butting heads and most likely end up nowhere.
The choice is yours though. You get to decide what you take a stand on and what are willing to compromise.
I’ve come to a fork in the road recently. It honestly feels like that too. That I have only two directions to go. I either keep quite and let things happen that hurt me or I speak up and risk the chance of losing what I love. I know it doesn’t have to be this way. There could be a third option. One, where both roads are combined.
I’m learning to navigate these roads though and it’s a process!

Face Cleanser

One thing that I’ve noticed since starting antidepressants, is the change in my skin. Yes, I had the odd pimple here or there growing up, but never to this extent. And by that, I mean my jawline has turned into a war zone. An ugly, nasty, bloody (truth) war zone that sometimes enters back territory.
I’ve definitely kicked in to high gear on my skincare regimen. One of my new, favorite products, is Aveeno’s Clear Complexion Pads.
Firstly, Aveeno makes some amazing and gentle products for hair and skin. And secondly, these face pads feel super nice. My skin always feels great after using one.

I believe it works so nicely due to the salicylic acid in it. For those who don’t know, salicylic acid is a key ingredient in acne prevention and treatment. It’s molecular structure helps it slip past those nasty oils and clear out your pores.

If you’re looking for a new product to try, maybe this one can help you as it has helped me.

I believe you can find this product in most stores. I got mine from Walgreen’s.

No cat photos you ask. Why yes, I failed epically this month to capture a non-blurry photo of my fur babies. But fear not, I will most definitely make up for it next month.
Once again, hope you enjoy and check out the links!
