Currently (May 2014 Edition)

by Khushboo on June 2, 2014

Hi guys…and happy June!  I am currently in Scotland for a few days but thought it would be fun to round up May by recapping some of my current favorites. I am a sucker for surveys so am doing one my friend Amanda often does.

Current Book:  Errr I’ve been meaning to read The Book Thief so does that count?

Current Guilty Pleasure: Retail therapy!  Since I’ve gotten to London I feel like a kid in a candy store…but only a grown-up on Oxford street!  I need to calm down, especially since I’m still here for another month.

Selfridges

Current Music: I’ve been listening to old school favorites such as Jagged Edge Let’s Get Married & 112 Peaches & Creamsome songs never get old!

Current Drink: Along with water, I’ve been guzzling down milk like it’s my job.  Aside from coconut & unsweetened almond milk, I can’t get enough of Alpro Chocolate Almond Milk…even better when it’s heated.

Current Nail Color: Au naturel on my nails but I have Essie Style Hunter on my toes (crimson)

Current Wish: World peace?  Beauty pageants aside, I really wish the Boko Haram kidnapping in Nigeria comes to an end ASAP and that all the girls return to their families.

Current Obsession: I’m not really obsessed with it, but I think the Selfridges current #beautyproject is awesome.  To celebrate all definitions of beauty, it’s a six- week programme of pioneering talks, interactive debates and immersive beauty experiences.

Current Need: I might have plenty of wants but I don’t need anything per say…I’m blessed with enough.

Current Triumph: An invitation to the Forbes India ‘30 under 30’ Event, which celebrates the creativity, power and influence of young entrepreneurs and achievers who have already created benchmarks in their respective fields.  I so wish that I could be in Mumbai to attend it tonight!

Current Bane of My Existence: Rainy weather.  Seriously London, it’s June..get with the program!

Current Food: Cereal!  You guys know I’m 99% an oatmeal-for-breakfast girl but lately I’ve been all about bran flakes with ice cold milk…and lots of blueberries to celebrate berry season!

Current Indulgence: We recently switched over to TEMPUR®  pillows & I don’t think I can go back to regular pillows.  The marketing claim that TEMPUR® material responds to your body’s unique shape, weight, and temperature, automatically adapting to support your body is 100% accurate…I can vouch for that!

Current Procrastination: I have a daily to-do list and the same task keeps rolling over to the next day: Deposit cheque.  Somebody hold me accountable and make sure I do it before the end of this week!

Current Blessing: My family..my friends…you all who read this…life is good 🙂

Current Mood: Excited for what the next few weeks have in store!

Current Link: 29 Incredibly Useful Websites You Wish You Knew Earlier…you guys are welcome!

What’s your current favorite

…Drink?
…Food?
…Indulgence?

😆 I filled out the exact same survey today — great minds <3 And congrats again on Forbes, lady! That's freaking amazing and you definitely deserve it! Here's my answers:

…Music? Red Lights by Tiësto
…Drink? ALL the coffee!
…Food? Ice cream :mrgreen:
…Indulgence? Afternoon naps! Those 4 AM wakeup calls are killing me!

Khushboo June 4, 2014 at 3:47 am

Great minds indeed :D! I am with you about coffee- I’ve drunk so much in the past 3 days that I feel like I have coffee running through my bloodstream 😉

Awesome job on the invite! What an accomplishment indeed :)!

Haven’t tried warm almond milk before, but if you say it’s good, I shall give it a go.

The weather has been beautiful the past three days – you’re missing out! That Alpro chocolate almond milk is dangerous. I can highly recommend adding Baileys to a hot mug of it!

Reply

Khushboo June 4, 2014 at 3:48 am

Ohh just the idea of Baileys & chocolate milk sounds heavenly- good call 😀

Woah congrats on the invite to that event – that’s such a huge honour!

My current favourites:
Music – I actually haven’t been listening to too much music lately! I’ve been really into listening to podcasts while exercising.
Drink – wine! I definitely had a lot of it this weekend haha.
Food – cold oatmeal made with kefir for breakfast. I’m so hooked!
Indulgence – chocolate. Always chocolate. 😉

Khushboo June 4, 2014 at 3:48 am

Thanks so much Chelsea :)! I love working out to podcasts too- any you recommend?

Reply

Chelsea @ Chelsea's Healthy Kitchen June 4, 2014 at 5:48 am

I’ve been listening to Holistic Health Diaries – they’re from the city where I used to go to school and I briefly volunteered with one of the girls. They have some good ideas and some neat guest speakers, and one of the girls is going for her PhD so the information tends to be pretty evidence based. Not always though – some things I take with a grain of salt!

I’ve been wanting to get into other podcasts though – which ones do you recommend??

Reply

Khushboo June 4, 2014 at 10:32 pm

Oh awesome, will check it out! I love listening to the Jillian Michaels Show podcasts…she’s pretty humorous, yet informative!

Reply

Chelsea @ Chelsea's Healthy Kitchen June 4, 2014 at 11:32 pm

Oh I’ve listened to some of hers! I enjoy them too.

Laura @ Sprint 2 the Table June 3, 2014 at 8:41 am

Music: Lumineers. I can’t get enough!
Drink: Water. I’ve had too much wine. 😉
Food: Berries.
Indulgence: Travel.

Enjoy London… even if it is raining!

Khushboo June 4, 2014 at 3:49 am

SO glad it’s berry season <3

The morning of my wedding, the Hubby woke me to Jagged Edge’s Let’s Get Married, so obviously I love that song.
