The month of May has been less about fashion and more about media. I have new songs and stories to share with you, so let’s get into it. Apologies that this post is a day late!
1. Thai Iced Tea
I’m a fan of sweet tea, but I was afraid to order the Thai iced tea because I wasn’t sure how it was going to taste. Now that I got it, though, there is no going back. It is three very important things: Delicious, sweet, and pretty. The vibrant orange color and creamy texture make it a must-try from anywhere that sells it.
2. Lucerne Belgian Chocolate Toffee Creamer
This is another beverage favorite. I don’t drink coffee, but after a late night, I had no other choice. I added an unhealthy dose of BLANK, and I actually enjoyed the taste. It’s hard for me to drink something so bitter, but now I sort of crave it.
3. Parks and Recreation
I spent a couple weeks bingeing the show, and I really like it. If you’re a fan of The Office, you’ll be a fan of Parks and Rec. It follows Leslie Knope, a government employee in the parks department in Pawnee, Indiana, and it is hilarious. I tried the show out a while back, but couldn’t click with it. However, after trying it again, I fell in love. Some advice: Persevere through the first season because it only gets better from there. I literally can’t get 5000 Candles in the Wind out of my head, and my friend told me I’m like Jean-Ralphio (insult?) because I sing about random things 24/7.
4. 10 Things I Hate About You
I’ve seen this movie a couple times, but I was really into it when I watched it again this month. If you haven’t seen it, I definitely recommend checking it out. It’s about how a mysterious boy asks out an angsty girl so that the girl’s sister can date the new boy even though she actually wants to date the popular kid. It’s sounds like a complex plot line, but it’s just a cute movie.
5. Lucy in the Sky
This is the second book I read in the Go Ask Alice series. It’s supposed to be anti-drug propaganda, but I just find the story interesting. Both Lucy in the Sky and Go Ask Alice follow teenagers battling with substance abuse. I prefer Lucy in the Sky, however, because I find it more relatable and modern. Although these stories are told in a diary format and were reported as works of non-fiction, further investigation has revealed that they are fictionalized. Whether they were real or not did not change my opinion of them, though, because the story itself is still interesting.
I had to make a May Vibes Playlist this month because there were so many fantastic songs I’ve been jamming to. I’m a Pisces, so Pisces by Riz La Vie just fit me. The tune and style are just so dope. I also have to shout-out Hostage (Ghost Remix) by Danrell x Smålan as well as chateau and i miss the old you by Blackbear.
