Monthly Favourites : August


How are you guys doing ? If you'd ask me, I've just finished handling an event in my college by now. as for this post, I want to carry all of you, my precious readers, away from my fashion talk/outfit-of-the-post kind of post. As for today, I want to share with you guys about all the things that I've been obsessed throughout the month of August (it is still not too late to talk about August favourites, right?)

For the first category, I'll be talking about my favourite tracks or playlist that I've been listening throughout the month of August.

Have you ever heard about a singer named Halsey? No? Neither did I. A few weeks back, I've discovered her through the Vevo's Youtube Channel. There were 2 songs from her new album, Badlands, that I have been uhbsessed listening to. Keep in mind that both of these songs have been on replay in my iPhone's Music app.

The first song is New Americana. The first time I heard it, I fell in love right away! The slow, dark-enchanting vibe that the song possessed has definitely got my ears stuck. Basically, the song portrays that everyone in the nation has come together as a new nation, or as what Halsey chanted, We are the New Americana. Eventhough the lyrics emphasized on Marijuana, Balenciaga, James Dean and some other sexual or I'd rather say it as a very explicit references, the lyrics itself contains a very deep social message behind the explicit usage of words. I am recommending you to listen to the song.

Next is also a song from Halsey, taken from her new album, Badlands and it is called Roman HolidayI haven't made any research for the lyrics but what really got my ear stuck with the song is that the melody of the song, the vibrant vibe that the song conveys, it is as if I'm high on Valium (i don't even know if that really made sense). Yes, you should really listen to the song.

The very next song is from my idol, Demi Lovato. If you haven't heard from the news, Demi has released a new single called Cool For The Summer and it has been my go-to jam. Literally! I have been listening to the song almost every single night, sometimes when I am heading to class, I'll tune into the song and put the volume as maximum as possible (I really enjoy listening to songs in maximum volume because I think it is a way for me to get into the song).

Basically, Cool For The Summer is a seducing, sexy song where lyrically, Demi intends to flirt with a person, to taste the cherry and yes, I don't want to get into the lyrics stuff too deep since it is a very explicit song. Why don't you go and listen to it? Or maybe watch the music video?

Lastly, my favourite song for August is a major throwback song. Let me tell you, I've listened to this particular song for more than 7000 times (there's proof in my iTunes) but the excitement to listen to this song has never changed. The song is Heart Attack by Demi Lovato! I can really relate to that song because,well, I am putting my defenses up because I don't wanna fall in love. If I ever did that, I think I'd have a heart attack (see what I did there? Quoting the lyrics hehehe)

Let's carry on to the next category, Favourite Clothing Item.

As for the month of August, I've been using my Black Denim Jacket that I bought from Forever 21 which was on sale. If you followed my Instagram (link is in the side bar), I've posted a picture of the jacket. Well, if you'd noticed that from my previous Outfit posts, I've styled most of the outfit with the black denim jacket and yes, that is the jacket that I am talking about! Why am I obsessed with it? I don't really know but I am sure that I am obsessed with the colour of the jacket (Black is my soul, literally) and also the smell of the jacket. Let me tell you, it has this very distinct smell where it literally smelled like gun powder.

Moving on to my favourite movie. As for August, I am in love again with The Vow. I've watched the movie for more than 8 times already but every single time I watched it, it was like I am watching the movie for the first time! I really like the plot of the movie where it carries you away from the typical romance movies and instead of being all lovey dovey, the movie shows you that how a husband can sacrifice everything in order to win his wife back (his wife was injured at the brain which causes some memory loss and she doesn't remember about her husband at all). If none of you guys have watched it, please please please go and watch it. I bet that you'll cry somewhere in the movie.


So there you go, all of my favourites through the month of August. How about you let me know what are your favourites in the comment section below? I would love to read from you guys.

Anyways, I hope you guys will have a great day ahead and hey, STAY REBELLIOUS (i am trying to figure out what is my tagline)
