Taking Stock : Volume Three

Hello and happy Friday to y'all! This post has really spontaneously turned into something else and if I'm honest, I really wasn't feeling what I had planned for today initially. It does happen from time to time and I don't think there's necessarily anything wrong with that. Today I thought I'd do another little life-update in the form of the taking stock tag. The last time I did one of these was five months ago, crazy! So without further ado, here's what I have been up to in words..

Making: This blog post, how unexpected! I do have plans to make some more journal pages tonight though, I'm in the mood for some creativity. 
Cooking: Nothing-although I did cook some rather delicious crumbed schnitzel last night. 
Drinking: Sparkling water.
Reading: At present, five books. No it is not easy, yes it means some books tend to get neglected. I am currently reading: Moranifesto by Caitlin Moran (love this one), Grace and Style by Grace Helbig, A Room of One's Own by Virginia Woolf (feminist orchestra book club read), The Kinfolk Home and Everyday Sexism by Laura Bates (really need to finish this asap as I think it's due back at the library soon). 
Wanting: To go overseas, the wanderlust struggle is real guys. I'd also quite like a new Winter wardrobe, with threads from Seed Heritage, Zara and Topshop. 
Looking: At this screen. Riveting...
Playing: My Mistakes Were Made For You by The Last Shadow Puppets. Freakin' love this track at the moment and this band. Be prepared to hear about them in more posts soon.
Wishing: Life was a lot less stressful and a lot more kinder. That sounds more melancholic than I intended, don't get me wrong life is pretty great. I just wish parts of it weren't so lame. 
Enjoying: Discovering podcasts. Rediscovering even, I did listen to quite a few ages ago, I'm talking 2009 and then I forgot about them. My favourite at the moment, even though it's only just started is Ctrl Alt Delete, Emma Gannon's new podcast. 
Waiting: For assignment grades and for people to stop going cray over Kylie Lip Kits so I can get Koko K. Settle guys.
Liking: Blush pinks and khaki green hues. Lady Melbourne may be to blame for both these things and also Chloe because these colours have both appeared in their fashion posts lately and had me wanting blush knits and khaki trench coats. I'm on a real fashion kick at the moment guys, can you tell?
Wondering: What my next move will be. I'm about to leave my social media job and I'm trying to find something similar+something creative to keep me satisfied. 
Loving: The song Dangerous Woman by Ariana Grande, the crisper chill in the air and falling leaves (luv ya Autumn xo) and Juicy Couture's new Viva La Juicy Rose fragrance.
Pondering: What I'm blogging about next week-partly because I can't remember. Whoops..
Considering: A trip to my favourite secondhand bookstore this weekend. I have some books I want to take there so it's looking likely. 
Watching: Full House season one and still re-watching Gilmore Girls. I've not watched TV in ages though! Maybe I'll have a binge this weekend.
Marveling: At this photo. How dreamy does this look? 
Needing: To tidy my bedroom. It is so messy at the moment!
Wearing: A pink pyjama shirt and my Frozen pyjama pants from Peter Alexander last year. They're warm, and they have pockets. 
FollowingChloe's blog and loving it, Estee's channel and loving it. 
Noticing: That the shadows look particularly ethereal at the moment. I love shadows and their patterns, that's probably a weird admission but whatevs. 
Knowing: That change sucks but it can also bring good. 
Thinking: Like last time, what I am wearing tomorrow and whether or not it is sensible to carry a hefty book in my bag all day. 
Admiring: At the moment Lena Dunham and Jenni Konner on landing a deal with Random House to publish books under their Lenny brand. PS-If you're yet to get on the Lenny Letter bandwagon get amongst it. They're not the shortest of newsletters but they're well worth the read.
Sorting: The kitchen mess. Fun, fun times. 
Buying: Nothing really. I am currently saving for one or two, slightly spendy things. 
Getting: Excited for the weekend. I'm looking forward to some pamper time plus sleep-ins and potential bookshop trips.
Bookmarking: Blog posts and random things from the Internet I find and like for a new blog segment. I'm still fine tuning it at the moment but it's fun to collate. 
Disliking: That I won't get to be surrounded by magazines on a Friday for much longer *sad face*.
Opening: The pages of a fresh magazine, this one being Porter's Summer issue. More on that another time.
Giggling: At JLo's carpool karaoke with James Corden. It's not quite up there in the hilarity stakes with Adele's episode but it's still pretty damn funny. When they text Leonardo DiCaprio and sing in Spanish are both hilarious. 
Feeling: Satisfied.
Snacking: On nothing, I did just have some Goody Gum Drops icecream though. Also guys, they're bringing out Squiggles biscuits flavoured like this icecream! I promise none of this is code, yes we give food weird names here in NZ.
Coveting: An Ikea Billy bookcase, and also a new DSLR so I can film HD things. *This is the same as last time. Still wanting both those things.
Helping: Peeps that deserve it.
Hearing: The clink of keyboard keys mixed in with the sounds of crickets and Florence and the Machine. Weird, yet oddly relaxing mix.
