I was pleasantly surprised knowing I clocked 22 movies throughout September despite my life had been on the down low. It was a month of good movies at work so I had some (if not many) good movies to watch, mostly last year's box office which I didn't have time to check out. Some of them were good — if not monumental, and some just didn't live up to the hype. Baby Driver is simply amazing and Memento was a wild ride. Nocturnal Animal still got me on the fence, though.

Let's talk about Sully a bit, though. I mean, IT WAS SO GOOD. I have no doubt over Tom Hanks but the movie absolutely blew me away. Rather than a triumphant act of heroism (i.e Captain Philips), it was a subtle display of immense strength under pressure. So delicate yet powerful. Especially the scene where Sully was informed of how many survivors in the clinic. His relieved expression just gets me. So beautiful. It requires a lot of focus but it pays so much. Probably my current favorite movie and I'm glad I finally check it out. It was that good that I have to rewatch it again during breakfast by the next day.

Also, can we talk about how gorgeous the minimalist poster of Sully is? It's so beautifully made by Pete Majarich of Craft and Graft and I got a permission to put it up for this blog post. I think it captured the essence of the movie so well and I really have to share it with you.

I felt like cheating because I introduced COSRX before the brand that opened the gate for proper skincare to me. First time I saw Hada Labo was when I mindlessly flipping through Japanese fashion magazine. This brand caught my eyes because they claimed to use water as its main substance and sold one bottle every two minutes. Sounds too good to be true, right? Afterwards, a friend recommended me to use Shirojyun one to brighten and hydrate my skin. Being curious, I bought one and it never leaves my vanity ever since.
