currently // staying indoors, cateye sunglasses, and #teamwade among other things.

lipstick: radiant cosmetics / heart sweater: forever 21 / sunglasses: c/o firmoo

literally currently: i am currently in doors, staying off of the roads. i'm in my hello kitty PJs, dragging my feet around in my bright pink house slippers. the view outside my window is absolutely glorious - white snow caking the deck and glazing the tree branches. but goodness, the stories about so many people and cars getting stuck on the atlanta highways...some stranded...are so horrible. i keep praying for them. it also makes me grateful that ryan gets to work from home today and that i don't have to worry about him being on the icy roads. stay strong, atlanta!

reading: finally (for a change!) i have lots of books to talk about. i feel like the past few currently posts, i was already in some reading rut. i finished the dream thieves last week and i def recommend it. i personally enjoyed the first book in its series probably a lot more but the sequel is def worth picking up to read. i don't want to give too much away but it's a magical world and like i've mentioned in a previous post, one of my fave book boyfriends is in it. so yeah, go read it. i also finished nora ephron's i feel bad about my neck and oh, i love her and her writing so much. it's a book of essay of her life and NYC. really makes me wish i lived there. and that's saying a lot since i was always one of those people who said i would love to visit NYC but never live in it. i bite my tongue and rest my case. also i just started shiver by maggie stiefvater and i think i'm gonna like it. i'm one of those that can tell by the first chapter if i like a book or not and this one is one of them. that's just how i've always read books. life is too short to read boring books.

watching: since i couldn't go running, i made it out on the stationary bike today: 45 minutes, just enough for a Hart of Dixie episode on netflix, which also happened to be the finale of season two. i will say that i loved season one more than two but i can't help but like the characters, as cheesy as the show is. also season one, i was #teamgeorge but season two made me #teamwade. i guess i'm more like zoe hart than i thought. so fickle.

eating: toasted wheat bread, topped with aged swiss cheese and slices of fresh avacado. i also add an illegal dosage of black pepper and then salt to taste (sometimes garlic salt!). i eat this way too often but it's so good and perfect for any meal (i've made it as an appetizer for dinner).

wearing: this pair of cateye sunglasses (see above photo!) from my friends at firmoo. i had been on the hunt for forever for a pair of cateye sunglasses and this pair ended up to be a perfect match. firmoo customizes every pair for your style and needs. you can even upload your own picture to see how you "look" in each pair. whether you are looking for prescription or sunglasses, they seriously have ever possible option. i customize this pair of glasses into sunglasses and got to select the color of my frames and the tint. they are really the perfect pair - not to big and not too small for my size face. interested in getting your own pair? email me with your email address for a $30 coupon code to go towards the a pair from the classic eyeglasses collection! and last but not least, for blogger friends, they are always looking for blogger collabs so check out HERE to see if you and firmoo would make a good match!

listening: lots of Lorde, partly because i really do love her voice and her music but partly because i'm trying to remove and dismiss the seizure images from the Grammy's the other night. i want to think of her the way i did pre-Grammy's. also did anyone else notice how she didn't open her eyes once the entire performance? still love Lorde and her hair and dark lipstick and Royals though. and yes, it's still on repeat on my ipod.

loving: i find myself loving running more and more. if you asked me about running last year, i would have laughed in your face. i've always hated running. now that running has become a big part of my life, the times that i can't run can be such a downer; however the times that i can run (because i will NOT run when it's frigid cold - that's just insane. sorry.), i find it even more exhilarating. it's easy to take warm weather for granted when you have it so often but with this winter that georgia has been battling, you really soak up the warm days. do not take life for granted, people, especially in an ill-weather-prepared state like GA.

what are you currently up to, friend? this post is always inspire by danni of sometimes sweet. create your own post and be sure to include it in the comments below! always love reading them! xoxo!

much love.
{happy wednesday, friend.}

  2. I have exactly the same relationship with running. I do not run in this crazy weather. More power to those who do! I also started pretty recently myself...last year I would have laughed like crazy to think I'd like running now!

  5. People were seriously hating on Lorde after the Grammys. I love her album so much. I don't care if she's a little strange onstage. Ha!

  7. Oh my gosh, PLEASE email me when you've finished the Shiver trilogy! I ADORED it, and not just because it takes place in areas of Minnesota that I've been to ;-)
