Currently | June 05


I can't believe half the year has already passed. Not because it feels so short, but because it feels so long. It felt like June would never end. I'm a little disappointed that it did. 

What May was as big unadulterated bag of burning dog poop, June was the extinguisher that put it out. Overall, it was a good month. 

So here is what I've been doing in June!


Doing | Oh look homework! That I've been forgetting on purpose since the dawn of time. I'm one of those masochists who enjoys studying but doesn't. So now, I have mounds of homework I'll have to get through. Excuse me while I get my third cup of late night coffee.

Watching | Orange is The New Black. I love this series and its portrayal of realistic women in a tough environment. I'm only halfway through but the third season is becoming my favourite. It's hilarious, witty and incredible enjoyable!

Listening | Thanks to Meg, I am obsessed with Melanie Martinez. Pity Party and her other songs, Dollhouse in particular, are stuck in my head. It's the faux cute, mildly psychotic melody of her songs that just grabs my attention. It's sickly sweet yet oddly melancholic.

Loving | The Last Time We Say Goodbye by Cynthia Hand! I raved it in my review and I still cannot stop praising! It's such a beautiful book by a relatively unknown author (who favorited a my tweet, score!) that deserves so much recognition. It's just too good.

Making | Makeup posts that I've been neglecting. This started as a Beauty Blog(-ish) so I've been trying to get back to my roots and write up more beauty related posts. Especially since Eid is coming up which means mo' makeup, mo' problems...That's how the song goes, right?

Planning | A lot of things. I've been discussing with some people to help update this little ol' blog of mine. One of these things planned is moving to WordPress and switching a few things up later in the year. Which might be closer than you think. 

Reading | I am out of my reading funk! Yes! I've read We Were Liars by E. Lockhart, It by Alexa Chung, Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me (and Other Concerns) by Mindy Kaling, Bossy Pants by Tina Fey, Love & Misadventures by Lang Leav. Going through Why We Broke Up by Daniel Handler, I'm one-third in and it is...meh.

And that was my June! 

Long, tiring and just the way I liked it. It was a good month for me, keeping me busy with work or school. Sure, I come to both half-asleep but doesn't everyone? I like being engaged. It means like don't have time to waddle over small, irrelevant things like feelings. 

So how was your June? Did you get up to no good?

  4. This year is flying by, I am not ready to accept it. I start my last year of university in September and it's pretty freaky.
    I spent my Sunday watching OITNB, season 3, and I love it! Hoping to finish the whole season this weekend.
    Which one of those books would you most recommend?!

  5. I can't believe half the year has passed either, it's such a cliche thing to say, but where does the time go?! I'm so hooked on OITNB at the moment too! I kinda have a love hate relationship with TV shows that are so addictive, on the one hand they are amazing and such great entertainment, but on the other, I kind of want my life back!

  7. Looks like you had a great June :) I also had a good one since I'm just at home waiting for vacation to end, needles to say blogging made me busy and I've been staring at my laptop for many hours, expecting to get a bad eye sight after vacation lol I so badly want to go on a trip, visit some place new, and I'm just here at home with my laptop haha. Anyways, great post, thanks for stopping by at my blog <3

  15. Stop reading so much! You are making me feel guilty for not doing it enough. :p J/k. I'm so glad you're enjoying reading! :D And yes, I totally binged on OITNB. I feel like the characters are starting to get more depth again. :)

    Oh, ramen! I've heard the ramen is pretty good in California so I will have to test them out someday.Glad you had a good time. :)

  21. I feel like I'm the only person in the world that doesn't like OITNB. I watched the first half of season one, and I just couldn't get into it. Hope July is even better than June was!

  23. You really should enjoy doing your homework mountain while you can! It's been a year since I graduated uni & I miss doing homework more than I care to admit. Haha! I finished season 3 of OITNB in two days last week. I got dizzy for the rest of the week, but it was worth it. Season 3 is the best so far! ;)

  41. OITNB is amazing isn't it! I've just about finished series 3, but I can't bring myself to, knowing that there's no more episodes to watch just yet! My blog is on Wordpress and I absolutely love it - it gives you so much freedom! Good luck with the move if/when you take that step x

  43. I've heard of book Bossy Pants before. I was thinking about picking it up and reading it myself. And if you move to WordPress I think you will love it. It's a bit of a learning curve for newbies, but once you learn it, it's an amazing platform to utilize. Good luck.

  47. I didn't even really think about half the year being over before you mentioned it. That's crazy fast. I haven't started the next season of OITNB. I have to renew my Netflix subscription first. But hopefully this season will be worth the renewal lol - culturedmisprint.com

  49. ha, I laughed at the "bag of burning dog poop"...I know that feeling. I hope July is a good month for you! June was kind of a crap shoot for me. There were some things that I wanted to work out that didn't happen...so hopefully that will change this month. The new season of Orange has been so good! It's hard for me to not watch it when my husband isn't home or doing something else, heh!
