November has been quite the roller coaster month for me. I was incredibly busy and had some personal things come up that really threw a wrench in my life. Still, I found quite a few things that really stood out to me as favorites that I wanted to share with you all!
Halocene: I accidentally stumbled across Halocene from their video about The Masked Singer stealing a cover of “Bad Guy” that they did, and I’ve been addicted to their music since then! They do a lot of popular song covers, and have their own songs as well. They’re a rock band, so if that’s your type of music I highly recommend!
What is Love? by Frances: I’ve heard Frances before and really enjoy her voice, so I wasn’t surprised that I fell in love with this song and had it on repeat for the month. It’s from the 50 Shades of Grey soundtrack, and has a gorgeous melancholy sound that I just adore in my music.
Fast Beauty Is the New Fast Fashion & It Isn’t Sustainable: If you want to have your eyes opened to what the mass amounts of makeup being produced is doing to our planet, watch this! I definitely felt uncomfortable thinking about the way that fast makeup has taken over and that we as consumers don’t realize what the cost of it really is.
I’m Making a Magical Shrine for this Huge Crystal!: I’m always a sucker for some nerdy crafting, and this video is no exception! NerdForge makes some epic masterpieces, and I just love watching her vision come to life. She’s pretty handy; being able to use various power tools, create lighting, and turn Styrofoam into a landscape that looks real.
I Gained Weight. Let’s Talk About It!: If you’ve never seen Pixielocks, her videos are usually very fun, upbeat, and pink. This time, she shares a lot of personal things about her life including mental health and weight gain. I thought this was an incredibly body positive video that really made me feel good about myself – if you’re looking to feel better about your own body, I’d recommend checking this out!
How to Reject the Diet Mentality & Does Losing Weight Improve Health?: Apparently I was on a roll for body positive videos this month! Abbey Sharp is a dietitian who talks a lot about the benefits of intuitive eating and how diet culture affects people. She’s doing a series on intuitive eating, and this is the first episode – it definitely made me think about what I’m surrounded with in terms of diets & food, but also listening to my body.
