  • - Hi everyone.

  • Happy New Year!

  • It's your girl Jenn.

  • And today I am just finishing up

  • some loose ends from 2017.

  • I'm going to be talking about my December favorites.

  • I'm really happy to do this because once

  • I film this and edit this,

  • that means I have done every monthly

  • favorite of 2017 and that makes me feel really good.

  • I like to complete things.

  • So, yeah even though this video is a little late,

  • I thought I'd do it anyway.

  • This month we've got a lot of film favorites.

  • We've got a book, we've got a fashion and a beauty.

  • So let's just dive right in.

  • I want to start with a fashion favorite first,

  • here I have these mismatched earrings from Pomelo.

  • I believe I first showed them to you guys in

  • my first and only episode of jungle bells.

  • I rocked them in New Orleans and I got a ton

  • of comments asking where they were from,

  • so I had to put them in this video.

  • One of the earrings has this cool

  • silver bar and the other has a pearl.

  • And I love pairing these with really simple

  • and basic outfits because it instantly gives

  • that outfit a quirk.

  • I'm a huge fan of dangly earrings, as you can tell

  • and these guys are no exception.

  • Moving on straight into a book favorite.

  • I have The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz.

  • And this book came to me at such a

  • perfect time in my life.

  • It was actually recommended to me

  • by two of my friends, Amy Lee and Anna Lee,

  • no they're not related.

  • But this book just really changed the way

  • I look at life and I feel like these

  • days I've been really reading a lot of

  • self-improvement books, but I feel like

  • they've really helped me develop who I am today.

  • So this book teaches you four agreements, or rules,

  • that you should always apply in your life

  • in order for you to have just like a fuller

  • and more peaceful life.

  • So the first rule is to be impeccable with your word.

  • It basically says that what you say

  • actually means a lot.

  • So be mindful of it.

  • The second agreement is to never take anything personally.

  • And this rule really resonated with me because

  • I am a very sensitive person and I take a

  • lot of things to heart.

  • And so when you retrain your mind to realize

  • that nothing anyone does is because of you.

  • It's because of themselves.

  • Even if someone insults you or is rude to you,

  • know that it's not because of you,

  • it's because of themselves

  • and the rules that they've made in their own head.

  • And I know it kinda doesn't make sense right now,

  • but I swear when you read that chapter,

  • it will be crystal clear.

  • The third rule is to never make assumptions.

  • Because when you assume, it creates complicated

  • situations and it says to never be

  • afraid to ask questions.

  • If you're confused, don't assume.

  • Just ask directly.

  • And I feel like that's something that

  • I struggled with because sometimes

  • I don't wanna bother anyone with my questions,

  • but when you ask someone directly what they mean,

  • or to clarify something, it removes the

  • possibility of a disagreement.

  • And so yeah, it says to always ask questions

  • and to never assume.

  • And the last agreement is to always try your best.

  • And I love this agreement so much because

  • I don't really like to half-ass anything,

  • I like to put everything into whatever I'm doing.

  • Whether I'm washing the dishes,

  • whether I am working on a video.

  • I feel like this is something that everyone can apply.

  • And I know that even if I mess up or I don't follow

  • the rest of the agreement as perfectly,

  • as long as I know I'm trying my best

  • and I'm improving a little bit by bit everyday,

  • that shows for something at the end of the road.

  • So yeah that was a little skeleton of the book.

  • I highly recommend you actually go read it though,

  • because I find that the agreements sink in

  • much more that way.

  • And also the way he writes isn't like

  • flowery and confusing, he writes in a very

  • crystal clear direct way.

  • So it can really hit home for anybody.

  • So I saw multiple movies this month

  • and to my surprise I have loved every one

  • single one that I saw.

  • So the first one I want to talk about

  • is The Disaster Artist and it has James Franco,

  • Dave Franco and Seth Rogan and like a bunch

  • of other people, but it's essentially

  • a movie based on a movie.

  • And it shows you how they created The Room,

  • which is notoriously known for the greatest

  • worst film of all time.

  • The movie was incredible and it actually

  • propelled me to watch The Room.

  • And I think they're an amazing pairing together.

  • You've got to watch both of them.

  • And if you actually enjoy The Room,

  • you and I will have some sort of connection

  • because it's one of those movies where you

  • freaking love it or you're just confused

  • and you just want to stop it.

  • But The Disaster Artist,

  • it really helps you see how bizarre

  • and passionate Tommy Wiseau is.

  • He is a character for sure.

  • And I feel like James Franco

  • really did an amazing, like representation of him.

  • It's incredible.

  • And it just shows you that you know,

  • even if you're a little crazy,

  • as long as you like believe in something

  • and you put your all in something,

  • you may get recognized for it

  • and it's really inspiring at the end of the day.

  • I love both movies and I feel like you should

  • watch The Disaster Artist first

  • and then The Room because it will just

  • make The Room even funnier, so go check it out.

  • My next film favorite is called Ladybird

  • and I also saw this in theaters

  • and I freaking loved it.

  • So this is about a teenage girl named Christine

  • and she's a senior in high school,

  • it's her last year so you just kind of

  • see what she gets into.

  • This movie is really about her relationships

  • with everyone in her life,

  • like her mom, her best friend,

  • the guys that she dates, like the way she

  • feels about college applications.

  • And I cried twice during this movie,

  • like one because of sadness

  • and one 'cause of happiness.

  • And I love movies that really

  • take you on a roller coaster.

  • Like it's not like an action film,

  • it's like more of a hyper realistic film

  • where you can truly see yourself as Christine.

  • And I feel like it really hit home for me

  • because, like she and I kind of had like

  • a very similar high school experience

  • and so it really resurfaced all these

  • like old memories and feelings and after

  • I left, I felt very reflective and

  • I also felt like a sense of pride

  • because I've come such a long ways

  • since my awkward days.

  • I highly recommend it.

  • If you kind of grew up around the early 2000s,

  • because it is so nostalgic.

  • And it's one of those films where you

  • forget you're watching a film

  • because you're so invested in the characters

  • and you really see yourself in all of them.

  • So yeah, go check it out.

  • In December, I colored my hair darker

  • and I freaking love it.

  • I feel like a new woman.

  • But with darker hair comes like the

  • visibility of dandruff,

  • so I knew I had to you know take

  • matters into my own hands.

  • So I got this shampoo by Briogeo.

  • It is their scalp revival one.

  • It comes in a tub, which kind of tripped me out,

  • but yeah you just basically scoop

  • up the shampoo, you rub it in your head

  • and the little exfoliants inside the shampoo,

  • it like exfoliates your scalp and because of that,

  • you have no dandruff.

  • And it has been amazing to use.

  • I love the way it smells.

  • It smells like Lush's mask of magnaminty.

  • So yeah it smells good, it cleanses my hair

  • and I am dandruff free.

  • Lastly, I wanted to show Ben's Christmas present to me.

  • He got me this gorgeous plant from Sanso

  • and I'm obsessed with it.

  • I feel like it really breeds in life

  • to the living room, it really grounds the space.

  • I love the colors, I love the way it branches out,

  • I love the pot, it's stunning.

  • And right now, I don't know what to name her,

  • so if you guys can tell me what kind of names

  • you think I could give her, please write it

  • in the comments down below, I would love to hear.

  • All right guys, that is a wrap on my December favorites,

  • it would mean the world to me if you

  • wrote down what you were inspired by

  • or what you loved or something good

  • that happened to you in the comments down below,

  • I truly love reading what you guys

  • have to say and I try my best to answer

  • as many as I can.

  • So yeah, feel free to drop some love down.

  • By the time you're watching this,

  • I will be in Thailand with Ben

  • and I am so excited.

  • I've never traveled there with him

  • so it will be an adventure for us.

  • We will definitely be vlogging.

  • I'm gonna try my best to vlog all of January

  • because December I just kind of fell off,

  • like I was supposed to have two jungle bells

  • episodes, but by the second half of December I

  • just kind of wanted to take a little break

  • from vlogging, I was still uploading,

  • but I just didn't feel it necessary to vlog,

  • you know everything like that.

  • But, I don't know why I'm like trying to justify this.

  • Regardless, prepare for more vlogs this January.

  • I wanna thank you guys so much for watching

  • and I'll see you guys in the next one.

  • Bye (kisses).
