Currently...(Vol. 24)

Another hot week and I'm surprised I haven't melted into the ground! DC is being struck with a heatwave with highs in the 100s and lows in the mid 80s. It is HOT!
This currently post is what's distracting me from the fact that the minute I step out of my house I will be a puddle of sweat so here we go:
  • Watching: Gilmore Girls on Netflix - This show is a gem and I can't wait for the revival! I'm rewatching this and I'm on the second season, remembering how much I hated Jess for Rory. (#teamlogan). 
  • Wearing: Essie's Gel Couture polish in 'Rock the Runway' - Like every other blogger lately, I've been adoring the new gel couture line of polishes by Essie. I LOVE Essie polishes as it is as I find they have an excellent range of colors but if I had one issue, it would be their staying power. They ALWAYS chip on me! I had high hopes for this polish range but unfortunately they chipped on me as well. To be fair though, I am kind of hard on my nails so it may just be me. In any case, I loved this bright scarlet red and I can't recommend it enough!
  • Eating: Jaffa cakes - I used to munch on Jaffa cakes in Britain with my tea and I was able to get my fix when a coworker came back with some on his vacation to England! So yummy!
  • Reading: Freedom's Child by Jax Miller - I'm still reading this! I've been so busy I didn't have time to finish but I got a good chunk of it read this weekend and I should have a review of this soon.
  • Drinking: Naked 'Green Machine' smoothie - I've been really into smoothies (I know, I'm late in the game), and the 'Green Machine' smoothies by Naked are my favorite! 
  • Playing: Pokemon Go - Like basically everyone in the world, I have been bitten by the Pokemon bug! My starter Pokemon of choice? Charmander of course. Also, I'm Team Mystic! :]


  1. haha I've been playing pokemon go too - reminds me of playing it with a kid with my sister! Every time we see each other we are comparing progress. And she's giving me tips as she's much further ahead of me, haha! Hopefully you aren't finding it too difficult out in the heat - I'm lucky it's nearing the end of winter here so it's quite nice weather to go out for walks..when I manage to get all the boys ready to go!

  3. LOL the heatwaves have been ridiculous. We have reached 100F almost every day this past week... Yuck! I'm glad to see you haven't totally melted, though.. ;)
    I actually just purchased the gel couture at the beginning of last week and my polish went a full week of dishes, laundry, scrubbing, and all of life without chipping! I could have left it on longer, but I redid my nails today with the same polish to see if that was a total fluke or if this formula is something worth buying and recommending!

    WOOT pokemon go!! MUCH LOVE!


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