Currently, August 2016

Today is the last day of August! That went way too quick. I thought a monthly currently type post would be interesting to do. I see it on other blogs all the time and I love reading them because I feel like it gives a little more insight to the person behind the blog. Also, I’m just a little nosy 🙂

Achievement: I had my blog redesigned and relaunched plus I’ve blogged every week this month. Working full time can keep me super busy at times and on some days I get home so tired but I’m happy to get back into doing what I love.

Books: I’ve read nothing yet which is a little sad but I’m hoping to get back on the wagon soon.

TV: I don’t know about you but I was glued to the Summer Olympics. Gymnastics and swimming are my fave but I watched a little bit of everything. Even the ones that make you think Is this really a sport? I’m talking about you ping pong. Oh, and Puerto Rico won its first gold medal thanks to Monica Puig!  

Eats: I didn’t eat out too much this month, but I did try a vegan restaurant in the city, Vspot, in the East Village and Caliente Cab Co in the West Village. Vspot’s food was really good but unfortunately, the service was a little disappointing and I don’t think I’d go back. Caliente Cab Co was really good and if you’re in the city looking for Mexican food I highly recommend it.

Drinking: I was lucky enough to receive a couple bottles of wine from Cloud No 9 Wine and I’ve been enjoying their Sauvignon Blanc ever since.

Makeup: I’ve kept it pretty simple and light this month. With all the humid days we had, I didn’t want makeup running down my face. I’ve stuck to the MATCHCo foundation I received and I’m still pretty happy with it.

Looking forward to: It’s going to be hard to say bye to summer since it’s been such a good one but I can’t wait to go apple picking, experiment with some pumpkin recipes, and wear cardigans 24/7.

Do you like these types of posts?

How was your August?

    These kind of posts are always great, especially as months start or wrap up! I love your blog’s redesign so much! Right there with you about getting back into blogging—work gets so busy and we get so wrapped up in it, but taking this time to do what we love is SO important. Glad that you are back at it!
