Happy Friday! I thought I’d shake up my summer posts (read: I’m traveling and haven’t had time to write a long post). I saw this “Life Lately” or “Currently” blog posts on a couple other blogs and thought I’d try it out. Hope you enjoy!
Currently Reading: A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman.
Currently on my nightstand: milk and honey by Rupi Kaur. Most definitely not the best night time reading because Kaur captures deeeeeeeeep themes through her poetry. Think: violence, abuse, love, loss, femininity, feeling broken.
Currently Recommending: Cork Dork by Bianca Bosker. A non-snobby account of the distinctly snobby (and cah-rah-zee) world of Sommeliers. A must read for any one who drinks wine.
Currently Bloglovin’: My Name is Yeh by Molly Yeh. Molly chronicles her life from her college years studying percussion at Julliard, pizza Fridays in Brooklyn to her most recent move to a beet farm in Grand Forks, North Dakota. It’s a food blog- and the recipes are awesome…a lot of nods back to her Chinese-Jewish heritage with a Midwest twist, but my favorite part is her distinctive, written in all lower case, language. Her tales of Eggboy – her husband- and her seven chickens all named macaroni are absolutely delightful.
Currently Listening to: Khalid on repeat.
Currently Commuting to: Planet Money on NPR. My parents and I listened to this episode on transporting bee hives to California on our recent drive up from DC. Eye-opening to say the least.
Currently Shocked by: These two op-eds by Sunny Singh and Yasmin Khan. Must read before or after seeing Dunkirk the movie.
Currently Eating: Frozen Ikea Swedish Meatballs because I have not gone grocery shopping in a hot second.
Currently Craving: Luchi + Chorizo con Huevos. You have not lived till you’ve tried this Bengali-Mexican (Bexican? Mex-gali?) breakfast combo.
Currently Drinking: G’s super special Margarita. Hint- use agave syrup instead of Triple Sec.
Currently Bookmarking in Yelp: Belly in Williamsburg. Two words: Bacon Omakase.
Currently Wearing: Yoga Pants (duh) & my favorite Everlane t-shirts ($15).
Currently Loving: Sephora’s Instant Moisturizer + Cream – full credit goes to S for this recommendation during an impromptu sleepover last month.
Currently Procrastinating: Learning how to code. A must for work, but squeezing in online lessons is…just not happening.
Currently Exploring: Calder: Hypermobility exhibition at the Whitney.
Currently Reminiscing about: Wine tasting in the Finger Lakes with my high school bestie + her Scottish hubby + our Glaswegian super friend + G last week.
Currently looking forward to: Paris in T-17 days. Recommendations necessary.
