Currently / November

Reading: Just about to start 'Not That Kind Of Girl' by Lena Dunham. The last couple of weeks this book has been popping up a lot on my Instagram feed, with very mixed reviews. So I am keen to get stuck into it & see for myself. Lena Dunham isn't in my top five favourite celebrities or anything, but when I'm in the mood for watching 'Girls' I really enjoy it & I like her jokes & sense of humour. 

Watching: New Girl. I watched almost half of the first season when it first aired on tv here in Australia and I liked it, I just wasn't into it at the time. Especially with the onslaught of kooky indie girls that seemingly transpired because of the Zooey Deschanel fascination. But now that the show isn't so new - and I ran out of other things to watch - I thought I would give it a go & I am glad I did. Schmidt is saaaa funny! 

Listening to: Taylor Swift '1989'. On repeat for almost two weeks now. My favourite tracks are Style, I Wish You Would & Bad Blood. 

Loving: Wednesday night farmers markets. The farmers markets are generally on a Sunday morning here, but now that I work on the weekends I don't get to go (but luckily for me my sister buys my nuts & apricots for me if she's going!). For the lead up to the Christmas period there is a special wednesday night farmers market so of a Wednesday afternoon we've been getting to go for ourselves & to get our nuts, apricots & bagels. 

Working On:  Kitchen curtains. I got my mum to sew some simple calico curtains that I could paint a simple pattern on for my kitchen. It is most definitely a work in progress!

Eating : Salad rolls. When the warmer weather kicks in Luke & I usually have salad rolls for lunch, we occasionally have them all year round, but they just aren't as satisfying in the colder months of the year. Also, cheddar and pickle bagels from the markets.

Looking Forward To : Finishing up my Christmas shopping! I was able to have a couple of hours to myself earlier in the week to get the bulk of our Christmas shopping done & I am pleased to say that with the exception of a secret santa present & a gift card I am almost finished! Luke & I set the goal of having all our shopping finished by the end of November and I am almost positive I'll be able to achieve that in the next few days!

    1. Even the songs I didn't originally like are growing on me now like 'out of the woods'.

  2. I've been wanting to read that book too. You'll have to let us know if it's any good. :) I've also been listening to T swift quite a bit recently - I'm loving the new direction she's going in. Oh and yay for getting Christmas shopping out of the way early! I had all of mine done by mid November this year and am pretty proud of myself. :P


  3. Salad have my interest. What are they?
