Teni is an Armenian Youtuber, and it’s always cool to find someone of your own heritage out there doin fabulous things. I really enjoy watching her videos; they’re great quality and super helpful. Plus she’s gorgeous (does anyone else think she looks like a Dianna Agron-Lea Michele hybrid?)

Lyss is so silly that you can’t help but love her. Her videos always put me in a good mood, even if I’m just watching a Tag that every other Youtuber has done too.

Music:

A.I.M Fire! – Art Vs Science

I cannot stop listening to this song. I didn’t love it at first, but the more I listened to it the funner I found it, and now I’m hooked. It’s pretty weird but it’s also really catchy and always pumps me up.

TV:

Modern Family

Modern Family

I had always seen scattered Modern Family episodes here or there on TV, but I decided to sit down and watch it from the beginning. I’m only a couple seasons in, but I love it. I so want to be a part of this dysfunctional, hilarious, crazy, loving bunch.

Instagram:

She actually has a fashion website, but her Instagram is like a CliffNotes version. I love seeing her fabulous style, food and general lifestyle on my IG feed.

Quote:

Anne Frank quote

I fell in love with this quote when I first read it, and then I saw who had said it and it became even more powerful. This past month I’ve been thinking a lot about my own future and place in this world, so finding this quote couldn’t have come at a better time. It’s so simple but so true. Every one of us can make the world a better place.

Music:

1. Hudson Taylor – “Second Best”

I’ve mentioned Hudson Taylor in our past monthly faves. I love their sound. This is an acoustic version of a track from their EP Osea. I’ve been listening to it on constant repeat.

2. The Nowhere Boys – “In Spite of All the Danger”

In Spite of All the Danger was the first record John Lennon, Paul McCartney, and George Harrison recorded . I discovered the song after watching Nowhere Boy. I love this version with Aaron Johnson, it’s my favorite scene from the movie.

Beauty

1. Revlon Lip Butter in Sugar Plum

I bought this lip butter after Audrey suggested it and I’m glad I did. It’s a perfect “your lips but better” color. The product goes on pretty sheer and is very moisturizing.

2.NYX Single Eyeshadow in “Aloha”

Whenever I don’t feel like putting much effort into my makeup I use this eyeshadow. It’s a great everyday shade that brightens up the eyes with very little effort.

Another British fashion blogger…can you sense a theme here? Patricia Bright has a very bubbly personally and does entertaining  haul videos.

Shows

sherlock

I watched all three seasons of Sherlock within 2 weeks. I was hooked after the first episode and watch one after the other (I have no self-control). There are so many things I love about this series. The plot, characters, and setting are all amazing! I basically have fallen in love with Sherlock Holmes.

Movies

1. Nowhere Boy

I’ve been wanting to watch this movie for a while now and finally got around to it. Aaron Johnson stars as the young John Lennon. The film depicts the complicated relationship Lennon had with his mother and the beginnings of what was to become the Beatles. I really enjoyed this movie. Apart from the great performances and storyline, I loved the scenery of the movie. I’m very fond of the 1950s culture and fashion so it was nice to get a glimpse of that in this film. I definitely recommend this to any Beatles fan!

2.Drinking Buddies

To be quite honest, I mainly watch this movie because Jake Johnson is in it, but it turned out to be a pretty good film. It’s basically about the semi-complicated relationship between two best friends who work at a brewery. The main reason why I recommend this movie is because it is very real and unpredictable. After watching it I found out that the movie was unscripted so I appreciate it even more now. The fact that the actors basically improvised the lines gives the film a raw feel.
