Currently Loving – August 2019

Currently Loving – August 2019

I’m currently still easing myself in, ok? Drink every time I say currently.

Currently Watching

Loads of vlogs on Youtube. I’m really enjoying watching more than reading at the moment so vlogs are perfect for filling in my downtime. I watched loads of travel vlogs for Japan before we went in April and since Topher and I are off to Florida in October it’s all about Disney.

I’ve also got Topher into watching RuPaul’s Drag Race so we’ve been catching up on past seasons together. So many funny moments!

And even though we got rid of our Cineworld unlimited cards (damn you uncomfy seats) we went to the theatre for the third time in our 10 year relationship. Go see the Book of Mormon!

Currently Reading

I’m slowly getting into reading blogs again but right now I’m more into books. After joining the library last year I’ve read more than I have in years. Plus I always know I have my lunch hour to catch up on my reading. Currently reading a lot of chick lit as it’s the perfect way to shut my brain off. I also enjoy historical fiction, mysteries and the odd non fiction too.

Currently Listening

I don’t listen to as much music these days – it’s mainly podcasts I’m tuning in to. Lots of Disney, comedy, organisational and self improvement. I stopped listening to business ones when I quit freelancing last year as I just want to listen for a hobby now.

Currently Making

I finally started my honeymoon scrapbook the other day! I miss being creative for fun so this seemed like the perfect project to start with. Plus I need to get this done before I start my Japan trip one and I can’t wait for that. I’ll do a post when I’ve actually done a few pages.

Also along the same lines, I’ve stepped away from the world of bullet journaling in favour of a planner. It’s something I’ll do a full post on soon. I bought a planner that I can decorate every week which has been so fun. It’s the perfect injection of creativity while pushing me to be more organised.

And also I may have mentioned that I vlogged our trip to Japan. Well – all the episodes are now up on my youtube channel. Check them out here.

Currently Wearing

New tights. Snag tights. My life has changed. It’s so nice to go through a day of work with tights that stay up. That is all.

Currently Feeling

It’s hard to say just one emotion. I either seem to be up or down. Right now I’m up but last week I was really down. I really think the weather constantly changing isn’t helping me – I’m like a sunflower. I need light and sun.

But it’s ok as I’ve come to realise this:

Currently Planning

Trips! Topher, Emma and I are heading down to Devon for a week and I can’t wait for some downtime. Definitely bringing some books with me. And maybe even a sketchbook?

Also did I mention I’m going to Florida? ha ha.

Currently Loving

Topher and the cats. But then that’s all the time! So grateful for my little family. They’re always there to cheer me up when I’m not feeling my best.

Oh and my garden. Topher and my parents laid some new turf down and I am living for how lush it looks. No more dandelions!

What are you currently into?

Jordan 2018 Video

wadi rum

This is shaping up to be a good week for me finishing things, right? As you may have been able to see on my blog last year, I made my annual trip to Jordan.

The main difference with this trip was that Topher’s sister Emma came with us. She’d never been to the Middle East before (unless you count a stint in Abu Dhabi’s airport) so she was keen to cross it off the list.

As I did with the last trip, I made a video. I love doing them and it’s a great way to look back on the memories. You can check out the finished video on Youtube here:

My Week #60 – Shopping & Sandwiches

*Pickles thinks he’s Superman *Yummy sandwich at West Corner NQ

*Topher bought a horrific t-shirt *We found the Harry Potter section at Primark

 

The honeymoon is coming!

I’m beyond excited. We’ve been doing some shopping to make sure we have everything we need (and don’t need). Including a trip to Primark – how cool is their Harry Potter section btw? If you have a Primark near you, you should definitely check it out.We may have gone a tad overboard but it’s all stuff we’ll use.

I also found the leather jacket of my dreams at Primark. It’s not real leather of course but it really looks like it and it fits amazing. Plus it was only £14! Bargain times.

So now that Topher has been and come back from his festival we’re I’m in full on honeymoon mode. I finally got to sit down with him and go through everything we’re doing and he’s convinced that we’re going to collapse from exhaustion. Which may just happen. Look at my trips to London and calculate that by two weeks. Yep, we’re going to need so much sleep when we get home. Sorry Topher!

I’m now on the Youtube bandwagon

In terms of watching Youtube videos, I mean. Though I am looking to start vlogging myself. I’ve just been trying to psyche myself up for it. I never thought I had time for watching Youtube videos but apparently when you’ve run out of things to watch on Netflix you have a lot of free time on your hands! I’ve mainly been watching tip videos for different aspects of the honeymoon but I’ve also been watching stuff from some of the blogs I follow. Do you have a channel or a favourite channel to watch? Let me know, I’m looking for recommendations.

We went to West Corner NQ to celebrate our first month as a married couple

It’s a New York style diner. My salt beef sandwich was yum! It was nice and I had been looking to go there for awhile but it wasn’t out of this world if you know what I mean. Topher enjoyed his chicken burger but I think because we’re heading to New York, we’re just looking forward to the real thing. So excited!

How was your week?
