May Favorites!

I know it’s already mid-June, but I figured it wouldn’t be too late for a May favorites post. I actually really enjoy these types of posts/videos, and it’ll be my first “Favorites” post on this blog! I hope you enjoy!

First off, I’m going to start with Beauty.

Last month, my sisters and I stayed with our grandparents for a couple of weeks. Unlike my family, my grandparents live an extravagant life. I figured that while we were there I might as well use a little more makeup to “fit in”.  There are only a few things in this category, since I only really used these things for two weeks.

bareMinerals ORIGINAL Foundation, Mineral Veil, and Concealer.

I actually really loved using this foundation. I’ve only ever used liquid foundation before, so this powder foundation was a breath of fresh air. It was so light on my skin, and it honestly felt like I wasn’t wearing three layers of makeup at all.

I got these last year when my mom told me to get a job. I look like I’m twelve as opposed to seventeen, so I had to cheat a little in order to look older.

I used the shade medium beige for foundation, the Original Mineral Veil, and the Well-Rested Concealer.

Urban Decay Travel-Size Eyeshadow Primer Potion. This stuff is magic. Seriously.

Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner Duo in Black Ink and Sepia Ink. I was gifted these amazing jars of wonder last year and I’ve been wearing them ever since. Especially during the last month. This eyeliner is extremely smooth, pigmented, and is super easy to apply.

ChapStick Total Hydration (Soothing Oasis). This little bottle of lip balm was a lifesaver. I bought one of these last year during the winter in America, (my Indonesian weather loving body never gets used the the winter, my lips become chapped, hair frizzy, and skin dry. Yuck.) I already used up a bottle and had asked my parents to bring me back another. Give this a try; it’ll work wonders.

Tech.

I’m not a tech-savvy person. It’s a wonder why I started this blog, honestly. Anyways, the first thing in the category is…

Phone rings! I know, I know, I gave into the trend but these are so great. They’re super convenient, and they’re cute. Although, I may have to get another one because mine is falling apart. Curse you, ring-spinning habit.

please excuse my paint-stained desk!

OverDrive. This app/website is amazing. You connect your app to your library card(s) and you’ll be able to access your local library’s eBooks and audiobooks! And the best part, it’s completely free.

Computer Sticky Notes. I have no idea why I didn’t take advantage of these before, but here they are, all over my desktop.

Also, I have no idea if YouTube is a part of Tech or not, but what the heck, I’ll add it anyways.

Liza Koshy and David Dobrik. These two people are the funniest people ever. Watching their videos make my day; I can never not have a smile on my face when I watch their videos.

Music.

Bethel Music. I’m not a huge music lover, but this month, I’ve been obsessed with Bethel Music. Their lyrics are so well-written, and I can’t help but stop whatever I’m doing at the moment to just sing my heart out when their music comes on.

Tori Kelly. I’ve always been a fan of Tori Kelly’s music, but when I heard her singing worship music from a few years ago, I loved her even more. You could hear the humility and the love she has for Christ in her voice.

Books.

Throne of Glass and A Court of Thorns and Roses, by Sarah J Maas. I love both of these books soooo much. Head on over to both my reviews to read on instead of just watching me ramble on and on, haha.

Quote of the Week |April 2, 2017

Wow, you guys… I cannot believe that it’s already April! Nearly half the year is over and I am not okay with that. I think I’ll just pretend that it’s still January to make a point to time so that it can take a hint and slow down.

Anyways, onto the quote for this week!

It’s that heart of gold and that stardust soul that make you beautiful.

-R.M. Broderick

You. Are. Beautiful. And that’s that.

love, jane. aka the unlost wanderer.

10 Things I Love. | Jane’s Rambles

Hello, everyone! Today I thought that I’d do a quick little “list” kinda post! I love reading these kinds of posts and I love writing them too. 🙂 As the title suggests, I’m going to write about 10 things that I love. They won’t be big things because like the saying goes, it’s the little things that count.

Alright then, off to the list!

  1. The smell of paint. Weird, I know, but I’ve grown up painting so whenever I go to an art supply shop or open a new bottle of paint, I take a deep breath and I’m home. (This is also probably insanely unhealthy so I should probably stop, haha).
  2. The satisfaction of finishing a good book. This one is pretty self-explanatory, I’d think!
  3. The finished product of cleaning your room. I don’t know about you, but I do not like cleaning my room. However, when I do clean my room, I love the feeling of Yay, it’s clean! I can actually breathe now!
  4. Putting on your favorite pair of shoes/outfit. I feel like we all have one of those. An outfit or a pair of shoes that when you put them on, you feel like you can take on the world. That when you put them on, you feel a surge of confidence and you feel comfortable.
  5. A perfectly sharpened pencil. I usually use mechanical pencils, but when I do use a regular graphite pencil I’m usually a lazy bum and don’t sharpen it until the tip is completely flat and all I get when I try to write is scrapes from the wood. So when I actually sharpen the thing there is always a sense of satisfaction when I see a perfect tip.
  6. Finishing a notebook. I rarely ever finish using notebooks. I always get bored half-way through the book and start writing in a new one.
  7. The smell of coffee. I love love love coffee, but I can rarely drink a pure cup of it.For me, it’s usually milk and sugar with a splash of coffee. I don’t drink coffee often, but when my parents make their own cup, I find myself taking a deep breath.
  8. Putting on fresh nail polish. I don’t understand how girls can put on a new color of nail polish every week. I will literally leave the same color on my nails, chipped and everything until my sister can’t take it and force me to change it. (She’s one of those girls who will have a new color every week, but she’s really good at doing designs and all that jazz).
  9. The flickering of candlelight. I feel like there’s a crazy amount of comfort that comes with candles, (but also that tiny smidge of anxiety that I’ll burn the house down). Their scent and the pureness of the fire is something so comforting to me.
  10. Fresh baked goods. I mean, come on, what beats a freshly baked chocolate chip cookie, or a pie that came right out of the oven?

There ya have it, folks! 10 things that I love. I hope you enjoyed reading and I hope you found some things in common with me. 🙂

See you soon!
love, jane. aka the unlost wanderer.
