Currently (April 2017)

by Khushboo on April 17, 2017

Holy guacamole!  After flicking through my blog post archives, it turns out my last Currently post was put up in January 2016 (!) – that is no bueno especially because it’s one of my favorite posts to write.  For those of you who aren’t aware, these Currently posts are a way for me to share some of my current favorites that alone aren’t enough to warrant a blog post.  Without further ado: 

Current Book: I’m currently in the middle of Girl Boss by Sophia Amoruso…buuuut I’m ashamed to admit that I haven’t picked it up since my flight back from China in January.  I go through phases with reading and clearly right now is a slump period. 

Current Music: Still so obsessed with Charlie Puth & Selena Gomez’s We Don’t Talk Anymore:

 

Current Excitement: So much to look forward to over the next few months but I’m particularly excited about the 112, Ginuwine & Dru Hill 20th Anniversary Tour concert in October that I just booked for.  My 13-year-old self is going giddy at the thought. 

 Current Drink: As I’m trying to reduce my coffee intake (‘trying’ being the operative word), herbal teas have been my go-to.  I’ve been enjoying Cuppanut tea, which is essentially teabags made from dessicated coconut.

Cuppanut

Current TV Show: Growing up, my bookshelves were filled to the brim with Archie Comics. For the sake of nostalgia, I naturally had to get on board with RiverdaleMy thoughts? The characters are so cringe-y but entertaining nonetheless. And just for the record, Archie is so much hotter than I imagined.

Current Guilty Pleasure: Regular massages weekly…and sometimes bi-weekly! For whatever Mumbai lacks, it sure makes up in the luxury department.  If a massage costs £5 an hour, you know I’m all about that.

Current Obsession: I wouldn’t say I’m obsessed per say but lately I’ve really been enjoying listening to podcasts when I go for my morning walks.  A couple of uplifting ones that really help set the tone of my day include Soul Chat with Lauren & Kristi & Food Psych

Current Food: Salads the size of my head.  Bombay has turned into a sauna and all I want to eat are cooling foods. 

Strawberry Bean Salad

Current Bane of My Existence:  iPhones.  The other day it randomly deleted all my photos. After a minor nervous breakdown, I managed to restore them.  If that didn’t give me enough palpitations, a few days later my entire music collection magically got wiped of my phone.  Fortunately I had all my music saved on my laptop but this whole ordeal lost me a good 4 hours of my day.  Let’s just say that I have become the back-up queen. 

Current Need: More time in the day!

Current Blessing: So many but right now, I feel blessed to have such a solid group of friends…some of who I have known for over 20 years.  Life changes, we move countries but the bond only gets stronger.  Anyone want some wine with that cheese ;)?

Current Indulgence: This basically sums up my life ha:

Treat yoself meme

Current Mood: Gratitude…and a lot of it! 

Current Instagram Fave: @thegoodquote –> given this page has over a 11 million followers, clearly I’m not the only one who thinks it’s worth a follow 😉 

Current Triumph:  Getting my taxes filed- does anyone else feel like a massive weight has been lifted when tax season finishes? 

Current Link:  6 Signs You’re a Yo-Yo Dieter And How To Finally Fix It on Elite Daily–> check it out to read a few of my inputs.

Your turn now: What’s your current…

Chickpea Chilli

April 3, 2017

Happy Monday guys!  The next few days are going to be jam-packed with getting as much work done as possible before I leave for Athens on Wednesday night.  Although feta & tzatziki are both hugely on the brain, let’s talk Mexican food for a sec.  Despite the 15,085 kilometers distance between India & Mexico, the […]

Three Things Thursday

March 23, 2017

Happy Thursday, guys! Since it’s almost impossible to try and intertwine my points below, I’m just going to break down this post into a ‘Three Things Thursday’ kinda scene: 1) As a healthy living blogger, it’s no surprise that most of my blog content is geared towards wellness.  I usually discuss food but today wanted […]

Making the most of overripe bananas

March 13, 2017

“One’s man’s junk is another man’s riches” While this expression is deep on various levels, I’m using it today to discuss the beloved banana.  Is it me or does this innocent fruit get such a bad rep?  If I had a dollar for every time a client (or even just a friend) referred to bananas as […]

Vegan Mac and Cheez

February 20, 2017

How is the end of February already in sight…weren’t we just ringing in 2017?? It’s been a particularly productive month for me. I attribute much of that to goal-setting. Rather than loosely have goals floating around in my head, I actually wrote them down typed them out at the start of the month.  After identifying various […]

Clearing up my acne

February 6, 2017

Hey guys!  A while ago I posted about my experience with applying coconut oil on my face and thought I’d do a follow up post.  Unfortunately things didn’t really get better.  If anything, it seemed to trigger a series of breakouts on my face which went on to last about 4-5 months. Especially as adult acne […]

Trying out Sequel Bistro & Juice Bar

January 23, 2017

With the increasing gravitation towards healthy living in Mumbai, it’s no surprise that restauranteurs are receiving the memo that health-based cafes/restaurants are highly in demand.  During the middle of 2016, Sequel Bistro & Juice Bar opened up in Bandra.  It almost immediately took my fancy after hearing about the restaurant’s approach.  As listed on the menu, […]

January 16, 2017

Like every new year, motivation levels are soaring and fad diets continue to pop up. Even though it’s been proven countless times that exercise & a balanced diet are the most effective means to weight loss, there’s no stopping new diets from gaining popularity.  One that stands out particularly to me is the not-so-new Food […]

A healthy 2017

January 2, 2017

Happy happy 2017 from China, friends! While I am pumped for the year to begin, I can’t help but smile as I reflect on the past month. In a word, December was LIT (i.e. amazing). It left me feeling so full: full of good food in my belly, full of love & gratitude for my […]
