Currently #1

Hello and welcome to my first currently! I love reading these so I thought, “what the hell, it won’t hurt to do my own!” so here it is. I hope you enjoy this, I already can’t wait to do another one!

Watching: Recently I’ve been binge watching Teachers again. I can’t even remember how many times I’ve watching this series, but it’s by far one of my favourites! During my undergraduate study, I watched this religiously whilst writing my dissertation. It was just like watching my friends or family on a home video, or sat in the pub with them. It’s just a very mellow show that you can really get into, and fall in love with the characters.

Playing: Since Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer coming out I haven’t stopped playing it! It’s just so addictive and relaxing to play that after a day at work I like to just come home, snuggle into bed with a hot drink and play this until I need to leave my bed to pee or eat. That sounds grosser than it actually is!

Listening: I’ve been listening to Bloodhound Gang LOADS lately and I don’t even know why! I’ve always loved this band but lately I’ve just fallen in love with them more than ever before. I need to get more of their albums soon. I’ve been on the hunt for some more for the past few weeks, but I’ve not really had much luck on that… Doh! I’ve also been playing No Devotions new and first album Permanence. It’s a very nice album for autumn and a relaxing one at that. It’s nice to listen to on the way to work in the morning.

Eating: I haven’t really eaten anything different lately… If anything I’ve been binging on crisps… Not good! Mostly Quavers, and Marmite Walkers crisps. I love Marmite so much… Actually, if I’ve been loving a food this month, it’s Marmite on toast. Can’t go wrong! I’ve also been drinking quite a bit of Lucozade Pink Lemonade at the moment, mostly due to my pole fitness. It helps me during my classes. As well as that I’ve been drinking lots of Ribena too. Yummy!

Wearing: With me officially finishing uni at the start of September my boyfriend finally gave me my Adventure Time Dr Martens boots (can read about those here) and they’re all I’ve been wearing. It has been tough to be honest as everyone who has ever owned a pair of Dr Martens will know how painful they are to break in and trust me mine are proving painful, especially on my one little toe. Ouch! With a big pair of Dr Martens socks, and plenty of plasters they’re now starting to break a little more. I can’t wait for them to be perfect so I can rock them all autumn and winter!

Wanting: I’m really lusting after some Snow Fairy from Lush at the moment. I’m running low on shower gel so it’s an excuse to buy this gorgeous smelling pink stuff. Alongside that I can’t wait for the 101 Dalmatians Vans to be released so I can pick up a pair in time for my holiday. I’ll rock them alongside my Dr Martens! I also want Christmas to hurry up and arrive, as well as pay day so I can start my Christmas shopping. I’ve eyed up loads of gift ideas for my boyfriend now, and I just need the money for them!

Until next time take care all and I’ll see you soon.

Autumn is Officially Here!

Me last autumn on a walk

I’m pretty sure everyone will relate to this post, and probably feel inspired themselves to get out there and enjoy autumn now it’s here, and whilst it lasts.

That’s my little list of things I love doing in autumn! I love lists, and instead of just talking in detail about what I love, or taking a tag quiz, I thought the lists would work better. I hope you guys like it, I would love to do more lists in the future, and may make it a weekly thing from here on in!

Autumn is Looming…

Image taken from weheartit.com

It’s September, my favourite month of the year, and yet I don’t know why! I think it’s due to years of going back to school, college, and uni, and being able to see a new year as a fresh start to look cool, be confident, do well in my studies, and just sort my life out. Even though I’m no longer in education, I still see September as this fresh start. September means more to me than just that however, it’s also the start of autumn and the best fashion of the year comes about again. Hot drinks out in coffee shops are now no longer an excuse, but a necessity, and soon enough Christmas will catch up to us.

Every blogger and their dog are obsessing and talking about autumn at the moment, and whilst autumn isn’t officially here until the end of the month, it doesn’t hurt to start preparing, and with how the year has been so far it’ll soon fly by!

  • Hot Ribena.

This is something I recently discovered when I went away to the Lake District with my boyfriend and our friends. I drank loads of it before we went home and it was such a perfect comfort drink. Since then I have bought a huge bottle of Ribena light and in the mornings before I head to work I make sure to have a cup to warm me up. Mornings really are getting chilly now, something I had kind of forgotten about.

  • Baggy hoodies.

Preferably a significant others! Since I met him, I’ve had my boyfriends Funeral For A Friend hoodie, it’s one of the nicest hoodies I’ve ever stolen from someone (infact it’s probably the only one!) as it’s so baggy, soft, and comfortable to wear whether you’re going out for the day, popping out to do some errands, or something to wear around the house. As well as that I have my favourite hoodie that I wear, my fox Animal hoodie that I got when I went on holiday in January. I intend to take this hoodie with me again to live in whilst I’m there when it isn’t warm.

  • Relaxing evenings.

With nights getting shorter, evenings in are some of the best, especially before November and December when all the Christmas parties are around. It’s just nice to stay inside, wrap up warm with a hot drink, and watch movies or play games. My relaxed evenings of choice for this autumn are looking to be playing Minecraft with my boyfriend and our friends, reading, watching South Park, and continuing with my novel.

  • Shopping for autumn essentials.

I really need some retail therapy soon, when I’m unsure but after I handed in my dissertation last Wednesday, I had a look around the shops at all the lovely autumn pieces and fashion that is coming out for this year. I gravitated towards a lot of pieces in Primark, and was tempted to buy some bits and pieces, but I left it due to money. I can see me wrapping up in snuggly jumpers, ripped black skinny fit jeans, and of course my new Dr Martens boots.

  • Ankle boots.

If there is a shoe that was designed for a season, it’s the ankle boot for autumn. Whether it has a heel, a platform, or whatever other quirky design they’re perfect for when the weather is getting colder. My boot of choice this autumn will be my Dr Martens, my new ones to be precise. Back in March my boyfriend was kind enough to buy me the limited edition Adventure Time Jake Dr Martens (post about them here!), but with a catch that I wouldn’t be allowed them until I’d finished my masters… Well now I’ve finished I’ll soon be able to wear these bad boys! Probably this weekend to be exact. I’ll probably wear these loads, especially when the weather is icy outside in winter time. With all the burgundy and mustard shades flying around for autumn, these are sure to fit in.

  • Comfort food.

I love food, I’ll admit that. I literally see food and eat it. BUT since starting my diet before July I’ve learnt when to say no to certain foods again… Although recently I have been a tad on the naughty side. But with the weather getting colder again, I can’t help but eat that little more and I especially sway towards carbs… A lot of carbs! My favourite autumn food is definitely macaroni cheese. It’s just so warming and gorgeous on a cold evening in front of the TV or a games console. Pizza is also a good one, but I don’t mean takeaway, I mean a massive one you can cook yourself and share. It saves money too, as well as unnecessary calories. Not only is dinner the time for comfort food, but breakfast can be too. My favourite being pancakes with bacon, something I made for me and my boyfriend over the weekend. He had honey with his as we never had any maple syrup and I had mine dry… Because I like my pancakes savory. Another pancake breakfast I want to make this year is blueberry pancakes, with blueberry syrup. I’m not done talking about food yet! Something else I love to eat during autumn is soup, and lots of it! I make my Chinese chicken and sweetcorn soup most weeks in autumn and winter, but I still want to try and make something else. Sweet potato and chicken soup is one I want to try and make soon… I might give it a go this week, see how I get on!

I can probably think of loads more things to talk about in the run up to autumn, but alas I want to save more for when autumn is actually here!

So, how many of my readers are excited for autumn and this month? Maybe you hate the colder weather and months? Make sure to let me know in the comments.

Until next time though, take care all and I hope you all had a great weekend.
