Currently... (Vol. 4)

Boy has it been a while, lovelies!

I mentioned last week that I got a promotion and the transition into my new position has been insane! The person I'm taking over for had only a week left in the office so she was cramming everything she knew into y brain all at once. I would come home and literally have a headache and all I wanted to do was go to sleep. Thus, my neglect of this blog...

That said, I'm so excited to start officially in my new job next week! It seems like a challenging yet rewarding position and I'm extremely happy to be there.

Now to the fun stuff - what I've been interested in currently:


  • Wearing: Smith's Rosebud Salve - This has been a lifesaver against the winter air! I always heard good things about this lip balm but I recently got this as a gift from a co-worker and I am seriously wondering how i ever lived without it. Highly recommend it! 
  • Smelling: Candy Cane Candle - There's something so appropriately wintery about a candy cane scented candle. Love lighting this thing up when I get home from work :]
  • Lusting For: Urban Decay's Naked 3 Palette - I'm a fan of the other two Naked palettes so I really want to get this third one! I think the colors are so pretty and would compliment any outfit! 
  • Needing: Zara Flats - My trusty leopard flats finally fell apart on me so I happily went shopping for a new one. The sidewalks of DC are cobbled so I can't wear heels for too long unless I want my shoes to get scuffed and scraped. These Zara ones have been great for running around town and the color adds a bright pop to all of my outfits!
  • Listening: Beyoncé - When I found out Beyoncé released an album on iTunes, I immediately went out and downloaded it. I've been obsessed with it and it's literally all I've been listening to all week! If you haven't checked out Queen Bey's album, do it now! :]
  • Sipping on: Hot cocoa - Although I'm not really big on chocolate (food poisoning incident when I was 16) I'm slowly starting to be okay with hot coco but only in small doses. I really like this one by Starbucks because it's very rich. 
Thanks for reading! Sorry about my lack of posts this past week but I already have my posts planned out for the upcoming week so I'll be back on my regular blogging schedule :]
