February 2019 Favorites + Roundup

February has come and gone which means it is time to share my favorites from this past month.

Entertainment

The Umbrella Academy: I finished watching the first season of The Umbrella Academy on Netflix, and I loved it! The Umbrella Academy follows the seven children with superpowers who were adopted by billionaire Sir Reginald Hargreeves to help save the world. Overtime, the members of the Umbrella Academy disbanded, but following the death of their father, the six surviving members reunite. The plot is interesting, and I love the cast including Ellen Page and Robert Sheehan. I definitely recommend watching The Umbrella Academy if you like superhero, action, and drama series.

Rate: 10/10

 

Spark Joy by Marie Kondo: After watching a few episodes of Tidying Up with Marie Kondo on Netflix, I decided to read her book since I was interested in starting my own tidying campaign. Spark Joy is divided up into the 5 parts of the KonMarie Method, and it provides in detail how to tidy your home, which was helpful since the Netflix episodes did not go through all 5 parts. The illustrations were also useful especially for folding clothes. If you are interesting in starting your tidying campaign, I would definitely recommend this book.

Love is Forever by Leonora:The Dansk Melodi Grand Prix was on the 23rd, and the winner goes on to Eurovision. Leonora won, and I love her song! It reminds me of French music, and she even speaks some French as well as Danish and German in her song.

Rate: 10/10


Beauty

The Body Shop Pink Grapefruit Shower Gel: I bought a set of four mini shower gels from The Body Shop, and this was one that was included. I love the scent because it smells just like grapefruit, and the shower gel cleanses my skin and leaves it feeling soft.

Rate: 9/10The Body Shop shower gel and hand creamThe Body Shop Berry Bon Bon Hand Cream: Another favorite from The Body Shop that I bought while they had their winter collection. The Berry Bon Bon hand cream has a wonderful berry scent, and it leaves my hands moisturized without making them feel greasy. Since the hand cream was part of the winter collection, it is no longer available.

Roundup

On the 3rd of February I went to Copenhagen to the National Museum of Denmark for boyfriend’s dad’s birthday. Visiting the museum was actually on my list of 25 Things To Do Before Turning 25, but I did not manage to go before my 25th birthday. The museum was fun to visit, and it is so huge that we only saw about half of the exhibits. I would like to go again! The following weekend me and my boyfriend started tidying using the KonMarie method. We started with our clothes followed by books then papers. We continued tidying the next weekend with komono, and as of now we only have a few more categories to go through. Tidying is exhausting, but a worthwhile experience since I only have items that bring me joy and everything has a home. The 14th was Valentine’s Day, and I made bagels with chicken for my boyfriend and homemade egg salad for me. My boyfriend gave me a new bag and wallet, and I gave him a box of green things (his favorite color) including food, drinks, and skin care products. On the 24th-28th I went to Sweden for my master’s program. It was an exhausting week with lectures and seminars, but it was great seeing everyone again. I am looking forward to starting the thesis course in April! Now for the posts I wrote in February!
