July Favorites 2013

Hey ya'll!!!

So apparently I labeled June's favorites as July Favs. And no one told me!!! Oh well, I fixed it now!!!

I'm not sure I'll be able to do a weekly update since I only have 2 pics... If not, I'll add it onto another weeks!

But onto my favs!!!

Legend of Zelda: Four Swords the Manga
I love Legend of Zelda, and this manga's really well done! I want to play the game now...
Cleopatra (starring Elizabeth Taylor)
I've been on an old movie kick because I've barely seen any classics. I can't stand a lot of them, but this one was really well done. It was dry in the beginning, but the dialogue was so brilliant later on that I became a try fan!!!
Breakfast at Tiffany's
This one was brilliant from start to finish! Unlike the last Audrey Hepburn movie (My Fair Lady), I love the characters and their development. Very great, and the party scene is to die for!!!
Teen Beach Movie
A Disney Musical making fun of Disney Musicals! So funny, cute, and the fact that the characters are 18 instead of 13 is nice too. I adore Cruisin' for a Bruisin', and the fact that several dancers are from So You Think You Can Dance is awesome!
Yes, I know I'm a little old to watching this kind of thing, but I love the fun stuff like this as much as the rocking adventure flicks like Transformers.
Star Wars
This month was Star Wars Celebration Europe. As the last one was held long before I used Youtube for anything other than AMVs, I've never heard of, or seen anything about Celebration. So this months vids were very welcome. Going to one is now on my bucket list.
Oh, and all the behind the scenes, tv show clips and inside scoops are pretty darn awesome too!

Melmphs aka Melissa
She's funny, goofy, and just fun to watch. She does makeup videos on youtubes. My fav things to watch is her comparing drugstore and high end, which is super helpful to the broke ladies like me!
The Wizard of Ahhs by Pentatonix and Todrickhall
I love this video! So cool and fun. Very well done. I love it!!!
Little Mix - Wings
I heard this on Radio Disney--yes, you read that right. I listen to it to keep me from being super depressed when writing abuse and torture scenes--and instantly fell in love. It's just so upbeat and fun!
Imagine Dragons - Radioactive
I know this song has probably been overplayed, but I just love this song! It's great by it's own, but in this AMV it really brought out the lyrics in a way even the band may not have thought of!
Hunchback of Notre Dame Soundtrack - God Bless the Outcasts
I mentioned that I haven't seen the movie often in a past post, but I didn't know how much I was missing out until I saw this scene for the second time. Man I love this song! It's at the top of every major playlist I listen to now (yes, including the one I'm currently listening to)
This Nyx Palette I got from my awesome cousin Laura (check that post here: has proven to be AWESOME! I've worn it almost every time I put on makeup since! With Maybelline's Bad the Bronze as a base, this palette really makes my eyes pop! Love it!
The palette says TS15, Aloha/Mink Brown/Deep Bronze on the back
These are my fav shoes right now. I got them at Ross for only $14, and while they look cute, they've been a savior this past month. My mom's new school opened with just a little over two weeks to the students' first day. That was when we could start moving in my mom's stuff. It took a while for the teachers to figure out how to get the AC to work, so it was really hot the first little while. These sandals were a life safer!!! I kept cool, and unlike cheapo flipflops, the straps go in the sides. The other ones I wore hurt my feet. Not these!!!
What were some of your favs for the month? Let me know in the comments!!!

  1. That manga looks cute, actually. I enjoyed Majora's Mask, maybe I'll like that one, too. =)

    I will watch Cleopatra, and I loved Breakfast at Tiffany's ("Timber!") and I really enjoyed Teen Beach Movie, too. It was cute. I did enjoy Cruisin' for a Bruisin'. The boys looked good in their leather jackets. What can I say? I got a thing for greasers. =)

    I'll have to check out this new beauty guru. She sounds like her comparison thing could be useful. If I asked my mom for makeup for Christmas and told her *exactly what to get, she might buy me some, especially if it was cheap.

    The Wizard of Ahhs is AMAZING!!!!

    "I listen to it to keep me from being super depressed when writing abuse and torture scenes"
    LOL! I have to do the same after I write a dark scene. I can't do it during, but after, definitely, I have to. I love the shoes those girls are wearing in the album art, too!

    I love Radioactive. SO MUCH!! I just love it SO much. Especially that deep breath the guy takes after "I'm breathin' in the chemicals." It sounds like he's dying. Which is probably the point. =)

    I adore God Help the Outcasts. It's beautiful, and I've always loved it, ever since I first saw the movie. It's beautiful. And pretty apt, since Jesus was an outcast in a lot of places, because of the Pharisees and everyone. So that line, "Were you once an outcast too?" is perfect.

    Your eyes look beautiful today, btw. That eyeshadow is great on you. Especially the bronze. That was well-done.

    Those shoes are adorable. I like them. And I'm glad your feet didn't hurt and stayed cool.

    My faves this month? I agree with you on the music. Radioactive! And The Wizard of Ahhs is SO AMAZING!!!
