Currently.. (Vol. 17)

Hello lovelies!

It's been a while since I've done a "Currently"post as I've been quite busy but I'm glad to be back at it again. A lot has been going on in my life lately and while I hate using that as an excuse as to why I've been MIA lately, I'm going to do so anyway. I do like blogging and I like having this little space on the internet as my creative outlet and I think I will just have to find a better way to manage my time so that I don't keep abandoning my blog every time something outside of it happens.
In any case, here are some of the things I'm enjoying currently:

Listening: The National Symphony Orchestra - I went to see a performance at the Kennedy Center to hear the music of one of their resident composers, Mason Bates as performed by the National Symphony Orchestra. It was quite an experience! I believe this was an attempt to get more younger audiences into classical music because a lot of the pieces included electronica as a part of the percussion. I quite enjoyed the night!

Reading: Brooklyn on Fire by Lawrence H. Levy - This was the second book I received from Blogging for Books and it's been a fairly decent read. I don't know what I expected when I picked this book out but it hasn't been a challenging read, though I've been hard-pressed to be as invested in the characters as I have been to the previous book I received. I'll have a review of it here soon.
Watching: Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt season 2 - I had been waiting all year for this show to come back and it's been better than I expected! A definite must-watch for everyone who enjoyed the first season as much as I did!
Eating and Drinking: Cherry Blossom tea and scones- I had the opportunity to go to the Willard Intercontinental for tea and scones. I had a lovely time and the tea cakes, biscuits, and sandwiches were a lot more filling than I expected!

Wearing: Essie's Ballet Slippers - This is my favorite neutral nail polish year round, but there's just something awesome about painting a fresh coat of it when the weather is warm!

Thanks for reading


  1. Wow!! Tea and scones looks so awesome and elegant!! Go ahead and use life as an excuse, people are always so hesitant to use it as the excuse but it's perfectly acceptable!!

    Much Love!!

  3. That tea looks like it was amazing! I was just talking to one of my sister-in-laws who got back from a trip to London and had a really fancy tea and she said the same thing about the little sandwiches being surprisingly filling!


Thank you for your comments! I read every single one :]
