I am so bad at keeping up with this series but I have so many May favorites that I’m so excited to share it with you. Hope I can do this every month but I’ll try. As for the month of May, here are my faves. 


Me Before You is hands down my fave book I’ve read last month. It did made me cry, more like sobbing my heart out. I have started reading Everything Everything by Nicola Yoon. It’s about this girl who’s allergic to everything so she’s always inside her house for years not knowing anyone in person besides from her very caring mom and her personal nurse. Her routine changed when she had a new neighbor named Olly. Something exciting happens in her life finally and it’s hard to juggle between love, her health, and freedom. Honestly, I think this will make me cry as well so I’m not in a hurry to finish reading the book. I don’t want it to end.


I have been addicted to recently! It’s cool cos you get to play with other players online. The objective is to be the biggest worm by eating glowing dots. Don’t bump into other worms or you’ll die. Find a strategy to let other worms bump into you so you get to eat their glowing dot souls. I recently introduced the game Don’t Starve to Jan and he got addicted to it as much as I did last year. I’m playing it again and I’m hoping to get Don’t Starve Together so we can both play and try to survive together as a team.


Been loving liquid lipsticks! I only have two right now but I love them. The first swatch is Bare Beauty by BYS Velvet Lips while the other one is Birthday Suit by Matte Me. I love their shade and it’s long lasting. One coat is enough and don’t forget to moisturize and exfoliate your lips before wearing them. Mattes can be drying.


My fave moments are the ones with my boyfriend for sure. After 2 months of just talking online, we finally met and everything has just been amazing. Summer is ending and I love the rain and the gloomy weather. Even just indoors, I like drinking a cup of coffee, read a good book, watch movies and play games.


What’s your recent faves?

    I really loved Me Before You too! That book just really toyed with my emotions. I haven’t cried that hard since I read The Last Song.

    Where’d you buy those lippies? I’ve really been itching to buy liquid lipsticks but I’m always torn on what shade to get, haha.

    Nice post Ali, have a nice evening 😊

      The Last song tore my heart to pieces more than Me Before You. Both are great books though. Bought the lippie from Zalora but SM department store might have one.

    Those shades of liquid lipsticks look so good! I’ve been into nude lipsticks lately and I want to hoard as many as I can, hehe. I can’t wait for the Me Before You movie! I’ve read the book twice and I still cried on the second time. Everything everything sounds interesting. Do you think it’ll be a sad ending as well? I want a happy ending for a change, lol.

    I really am not fond of make ups and stuff but seeing lipstick swatches makes me happy. I don’t know why but it makes me smile. Haha. I have read good reviews about the film, “Me Before You” and I just can’t wait to watch it. xx

    I’ve read Me Before You a year ago and it made me cry too! When I finished reading it, I felt like I was drained out emotionally. Lol love the shades of your liquid lippies, btw!

    OMG can I just say, most of your favourites this month are my favourites too!! WHAT ARE THE ODDS. I loved Everything Everything. I recently just finished it. Read it in one night, didn’t sleep. Haha. And I have exactly the same shade of the Sleek matte lipstick (LURVE IT), and that picture about introverts is ON POINT. That moments section speaks to me so much haha <3

    How good is the Matte Me lipstick? I’ve been using some matte lipstick and it is really hard to come off plus its sticky. 🙁 is matte me the same? I like some of their shades and I want to try it however, I’m afraid of the difficulty to remove it.
