Today is the day!
🎶 I’m leaving on a jet plane. I don’t know when I’ll be back again 🎶… except that I’ll be back on Monday, so that’s not entirely accurate, but close enough!
By the time you read this, I’m either: at home freaking out, waiting at the airport, on aforementioned jet plane, or in Vegas. I love travelling, but man oh man could I ever do without the last couple of days before I leave. I definitely know I’m not the only one who feels this way, but I always get crazy overwhelmed with all the things that need to get done before I leave on any sort of trip… but then once I’m at the airport I forget about everything.
Anywho! I’ve got all my regular posts scheduled for while I’m away, so what’s say we kick things off with a little Currently action?!?
Current book: Remember my big bookstore splurge from last week? I decided to start with The Way of Shadows by Brent Weeks, and I’m really enjoying it so far. I’m about halfway through, and it actually reminds me a lot of The Lies of Locke Lamora, which is a book/series I adore. I’m curious to see how this one plays out.
Current music: This one was tough this month since I’ve kind of been on a mission to find new songs that I won’t constantly want to skip over, but I’m gonna go withhhhhh… The Resistance by Skillet.
Current [non]-guilty pleasure: Video games. I feel like I say that for this question a lot, but gaming, in addition to driving, snowboarding, and reading, are my all-time favourite ways to relax.
Current drink: Iced Americanos. You guys… I can’t do the hot coffee thing anymore. In fact, I feel like I’m not as crazy about coffee in general and mostly drink it out of habit/routine. Might be time to switch back to cappuccinos instead of just drinking ’em black. Maybe I need more sweetness in my life.
Current food: Chickpeas, but in baked goods. I don’t think I’m as crazy about chickpeas as most people seem to be (I like kidney beans way better), but I’m currently LOVING them in grain-free baking. You guys have seen these banana bread bars, and I’ve got a couple more recipes in the works that I can’t wait to share with you 😁
Current obsession: The contents of this box! You guys know how obsessed I am with my Erin Condren Life Planner, so when the awesome people over at EC contacted me and asked me if I’d like to review the 2017 planner and some of the new accessories, it was like… uhm… YES!! I’ll share the deets when I get back home next week.
Current craving: I can’t actually think of anything, so I guess I’m good!
Current need: To paint my nails before I leave. I’m thinking of going with black this time around since I haven’t done a super dark colour in a long while. Either that or a classic red 🤔 I’d ask for your opinions, but it’ll be too late by the time this post goes live, unless I paint my nails in the airport or on the plane, which… NO.
Current indulgence: I’m holding off on the indulgences until I get to Vegas. And by that I mostly mean that I want to do some shopping while I’m down there so I’m tying to keep it reigned in until then 😜
Current beauty product: Remember how I said that I didn’t like the “bane of existence” question? Someone suggested replacing it with “current beauty product,” which I’m loving since I’m a huge beauty junkie. Anyways! Right now I’m all over this Shade & Light eye contour palette from Kat Von D.
Current procrastination: Packing! I’m leaving early tomorrow morning (today), and as of this moment (Wednesday night), I have yet to even take my suitcase out of the closet. Good thing I keep a running list of things I need to take.
Current confession: I don’t know if I’ve ever told you guys this, but I’m not much of a drinker. And by that I mean that I’ll maybe have one or two drinks a couple times a year? I’m just not a huge fan of how it makes me feel, so yeah… I go to Vegas and I don’t drink or gamble 😂
Current quote: So much YES to this! You’re responsible for your own happiness…
Current excitement: Vegas, baby!!
Current mood: Flustered and a little bit overwhelmed. As much as I like going away, the last few days before I leave always have me feeling like a headless chicken and I’m really looking forward to forgetting about everything and having a good time.
Give me your current:
… a) book.
… b) music.
… c) food.
… d) obsession.
… e) confession.
