Currently...(Vol. 6)

Hi all!!

So I totally made plans to do an Independence Day post yesterday but I accidentally spilled coffee on the outfit I was planning to wear and I didn't think of a red-white-and-blue backup. I'd rather have no post than a half-hearted post so I didn't put anything up. That said, I hope you all had a lovely Fourth of July and for those who don't live in the States, I hope you had a great Friday! I actually went to go see the fireworks - the nice thing about living in the Nation's Capital is that we get some spectacular fireworks every year.


  • Celebrating: Independence Day - Fourth of July is always a big affair here in DC. Like I mentioned above, I went to see the fireworks and they were pretty awesome, as always! If you're not from the US, do you celebrate a National Day?
  • Obsessed with: Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette - If you follow me on Instagram, you'll know I recently got my hands on this Urban Decay palette! I actually don't have the first two Naked palettes so I can't compare it to the previous ones but the colors are so pretty and I've been using it every day!
  • Reading: Persepolis - I'm finishing off another book on my summer reading list! This is such an amazing book. I know a movie version of it is out and if you don't have time to read this graphic novel I highly recommend the film as well. 
  • Wearing: Deborah Lippmann polish in "Build Me Up Buttercup" - I also posted this on Instagram last week - it's such a pretty pastel shade of yellow that I find so flattering on my skin tone! This is also my first Deborah Lippmann polish and I think I'm a convert, though I do wish they weren't so expensive! $18 for a bottle :/
  • Can't Take Off: Kate Spade Roxana wedges - I think I've been doing way too much shopping lately because these shoes were definitely a splurge. That said, I've been wearing these non-stop! They go with everything and are perfect for the office!
  • Watching: Scrubs - I made a deal with my friend: She would watch Doctor Who and I would watch Scrubs. I am officially hooked!!! If you haven't seen this, I highly recommend it. All nine seasons are currently on Netflix. It's a hilarious show about a group of doctors at a teaching hospital. The characters are jaded, sarcastic and incredibly witty.
Thanks for reading and have a great week!


  1. I want to try that Naked 3 soon!! Great picks!

  2. Happy late July the 4th to you, Deborah! :) We do celebrate Canada Day here in Canada, and it's fairly close to America's Independence Day- on the 1st of July! Glad you got the chance to watch some great fireworks! I just love watching fireworks! Oh, I must get a move on in reading, especially now that it's summer!! I heard that Persepolis is a nice book- my sister read it for her English this year too!

    Have a great week, Deborah!! Love your "Currently" series so much as it also gives us some insight into your life, haha!
