I have not done this kind of post in a while and I guess a new year (even when it already feels old) is a good reason for a little catch-up. I am such a horrible blogger right now. That needs to change. I hope you are all doing great.
Current book - All The Bright Places by Jennifer Niven. I laughed, I cried, I fell in love with the main characters, I was shocked, my heart melted, I did not want the book to end, could not stop reading. Definitely one of the best books I have read in a while. It's not even the kind of book I would usually pick up. Who has read the book, I want to talk about it. And I guess I need to start writing book reviews after all.
Current playlist - Sunday, bloody Sunday by U2. For some mysterious reasons that song came to my mind today and I started listening to it and then never stopped.
Current color - Blue. Reminds me of the book I just finished.
Current food - Apple cake. I was in the mood for apple cake yesterday so I made one with lots of cinnamon, apples and apple and apricot sauce. Turned out great, even without a recipe.
Current show - I am re-watching Moone Boy and I am impatiently waiting for the third season. If you need a good laugh then check out Martin Moone and his imaginary friend Chris O'Dowd.
Current need - A lottery jackpot would be nice. But I also need to be able to finally find some tapioca pearls in the grocery store because I want to make tapioca pudding. But it feels like there is a conspiracy going on to keep me away from tapioca pearls. Damn you, conspiracy.
Current indulgence - Vivani White Nougat Crisp chocolate (made with rice milk). That stuff is almost too good to be true. I am kind of glad that they only sell tiny bars and not huge chunks of it because then I wouldn't be able to stop eating at all. Good stuff.
Current mood - A mix of a lot of weird emotions.
Current quote - "Act. Don’t react. See a need, fix it first. Worry about the details later. If you wait until you are asked you have just missed a golden opportunity. They are fleeting and rare." (My hero Philip Wollen)
Current wish list item - Books. They are always on my wishlist. And a new couch. My old one is becoming a nightmare.
Current movie - Paddington. I need to see this as soon as possible because Paddington Bear is my (and my guinea pig's) childhood hero.
Current magazine - I got a magazine which is supposed to teach you how to sew. The first couple of pages look fine and then it gets so confusing that it scares me.
Current item of clothing - Warm fuzzy socks all the way. I would not survive winter without them.
Current purchase -Lots of Vivani chocolate, a pomegranate, a mango and a book.
Current drink - Tea all the way. I got some stinging nettle mango tea which turned out to be quite tasty. Also lots of fruit smoothies.
Current beauty product - I currently started using a face cream by Lavera with roses and macadamia nut oil - organic, cruelty free and vegan. I am a fan.
Current shoes - Fuzzy house slippers because fuzzy house slippers mean warm feet.
Current hate - the usual: animal abusers. There are too many of them.
Current item to make my home look better - Searching for the perfect rug. And some new coffee mugs would be nice.
Current workout routine - I suck at working out right now. The only thing I do is to go for a walk almost every day. But no Jillian Michaels workout, no running...I need to start getting active again.
Current worry - Next...
Current plans - Many. More about that soon.
Current smell - Freshly baked apple cake is pretty nice. Also I am searching for a candle that smells like wild roses.
I hope you will all have a fantastic week! Thank you so much for reading. I promise to be back soon!
