February Faves 2016

Happy Friday! Good bye February, hello March!

It's the end of the month again which means another monthly faves blogpost. February was not my month though, I don't know why but most of the days, I was feeling a little bit upset. But thankfully, the last week were great because I'm forcing myself to feel good and think positive. I can't stay curled up my whole life, right. So I'm hoping for a better and positive month this March.

  Teen Wolf (Season 5)
Teen Wolf's impact this season is like a bomb - loud and intense. The creators go beyond the viewer's imagination. I believe the most appealing plot from this season is the evolution of McCall's pack; True Alpha, Kitsune/Fox, Beta, Koyote, Banshee, and Human. They're all different hybrids which makes the pack stronger and blended well together.

I personally love Kira's character, the way she deals with her inner evil kitsune soul with innocence and bravery. Spectacular. But let's not forget the outstanding Lydia, the Banshee, I mean all I can say is hands down. Her scenes are perfect and well written. I don't know what to say any more.

I actually missed like five episodes. But when I watched them continously, I just don't want it to end. I'm all like, "What?! That's it?! Next episode please!", but unfortuanately I have to wait for another week for the next episode.

  On The Wings of Love (in the Philippines)
This TV show has recently ended this February. Before it ended, the two leading cast, James Reid and Nadine Lustre finally admitted that they're officially a couple. Throughout those 6 months of taping together, the emotions of one another has eventually bloom. And with the couple's impressive bravery, they announced to everyone that they're dating each other which made the fans go crazy happy and crazy kilig.

I've been watching this show since the very beginning, but on the middle, I just lose interest because I wasn't able to see the spark from the tandem. Until the last three weeks, I've noticed the way they look at each other and their body language, by that time I knew there's something special going on between the both of them and there is finally a spark which made me want to watch the show again even more.

Why OTWOL was loved by everybody? Because it's not a typical Filipino TV show. Most of the telenovela here in the Philippines are predictable and heavy. But OTWOL gave us a simple and light show with heartwarming appeal. What I love the most was they bring out the best of everything from the show - the characters, locations, and scenes. Everything was directed with perfection.

Let's talk about the Finale. It was legendary, indeed. They aired the last episode all over the world via TFC, so everyone could watch the same time as it was aired here in the Philippines. They produce a viewing party for the fans with the whole cast and it came out as a big surprise because they aired it live as well. I mean, this is something that hasn't been done in national television. So, hands down to the OTWOL team - from producers to the whole cast. Congratulations for the successful end!

→  Good Dinasour
A friend of mine, Dido, recommended this movie because according to him, the movie gives every watcher a great lesson. Since I haven't had anything in mind of a movie to watch, I considered his recommendation. And for that, I agree that I can get great lesson from this movie. 

What I love about this movie is they teaches everyone that our own fear can help us grow and be stronger. "Sometimes you have to face your fear to see the beauty of the other side.

Good Dinasour is produced by Disney and Pixar, and I believe these both producers never go wrong with their movies and if they do, I don't care. I highly recommend this movie because I loved it, and my mom loved it. My mom usually doesn't watch movies, but she loved this. Take the advice from my mom, she knows best.

 Indie Current

Late of February, I found out this wonderful channel in YouTube. Basically they share different indie songs which is amazing because I'm being nosy and trying to discover different indie songs. So, this channel has helped me a lot in finding out new indie songs.

The reason why I wanted to enter the indie world beside from being nosy is because one time I played the whole album of Bastille during my "work" and it made me feel nostalgic and gave me so much feels. So far, indie songs are marvelous.

 Zayn Malik
I'm sure it's Zayn Malik's year this year. He recently released Pillowtalk (Jan 31) and It's you this February and he nailed his songs. His voice is outstandingly angelic. He actually is my favorite from One Direction because I can see his powerful potential in the band. It honestly made me sad that he quit One Direction but I personally believe it was the right choice not because he doesn't deserve to be in that band but because every member of One Direction has their own potential and so is Zayn Malik. 

After all, One Direction proved that they can still be on top without Zayn which is magnificent. And Zayn Malik can and will put himself on top without One Direction. It's a tie. I'm still a big fan of these artists. But this year is Zayn's moment. I'm so proud of him. I'm a solid fan through thick and thin.

→  Clothes Encounters a.k.a Jenn Im
Jenn Im is a Korean fashion-beauty-lifestyle vlogger in YouTube but as referring to her channel name, she's more on fashion. I love her sense of style and personality, no wonder she got the best boyfriend ever, Ben. And she's so adorable that's why she captured the heart of her subscribers.

♦  I N S T A G R A M M E R  

 Sofia Andres (@iamsofiaandres) Sofia Andres is a local Filipino celebrity who shares her passion in fashion and art in Instagram, Her Instagram feed is so fresh and sweet. She's so so pretty and jolly as well. And, otp alert, ahem, Diego Loyzaga. *winks*

♦  B E A U T Y  

Since I don't wear make up like anybody else, I'm still a girl that wash her face with a facial cleanser. So this February, I changed Cetaphil cleanser to this product again because Cetaphil isn't giving me the best solution any more, which made me sad because I never had the chance to empty the bottle. But anyway, I'm happy and satisfied with my facial wash now. Actually I already used this before and I'm using it again because I'm hiyang with this product.
