Currently [Vol. 7]

You may (or may not) have noticed that I’ve stopped doing Monthly Favorites post. That’s because it’s easier on me to do basically the same type of content but in this Currently format. It takes less time and shares just as much information. Easier is definitely necessary with how busy I am now that my finals have started – my finals are 2 research papers, so I start the research process around 2 months before they’re do – and I’m trying to manage everything going on. Plus, using this Currently format also lets me talking about more life stuff because I share my feelings about different things. I hope that you enjoy this setup, but if you prefer the monthly favorites, please let me know!

This post contains affiliate links and a review of a product I received for free in exchange for sharing it with you. As always, my opinions are my own, and I wouldn’t share anything with you that I didn’t believe in. Learn more here.

Watching … Supernatural, The People vs. O. J. Simpson, X-Men: Apocalypse

Wearing … my new favorite striped shirt from Target, the best oversized Madewell sweater, bright lips like Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment in Ruby and ColourPop Lippie Stix in Konichiwa (this is a similar one since Konichiwa isn’t carried any more)

Feeling … stressed! The school year is in high gear and my finals are due in less than 6 weeks. This means that it’s now crunch time! Plus, my hospital trip earlier in the month kinda took me out of commission for over a week. I’m doing better from that, but I’m still nauseous all the time since I’m still waiting for this medication to get out of my system. I got a huge stress reliever over the weekend, though, when I got a professional manicure right in my house from Team Glam n’ Go!

Team Glam n' Go | Kate the (Almost) Great

Team Glam n’ Go is a female-led beauty service started by 2 Harvard graduate students that provides professional beauty services where the client wants, which is perfect for busy people, moms, people with mobility issues (like me!), bridal parties, etc. They’re only serving the cities of Boston and Cambridge at the moment, and their service providers are vetted and licensed so you know that you’re safe bringing one of them into your home. Their salon services include: basic manicure, gel manicure, gel removal, and hair blowout. Plus, a portion of the profits from the basic manicure service benefits Boston-based charitable organizations. Right now, you can book services online or by calling, but their app launches in May, and you’ll be able to book services that way then. I was so impressed by the quality of the service and the company as a whole! Getting a manicure from the comfort of my home was the perfect Saturday afternoon.

Hoping for … the rest of the semester to go as smoothly as possible! There’s just 5.5 weeks until my finals are due (hence the stress), and I’m hoping that the school work goes well and my body cooperates so I can finish the semester on time.

Looking forward to … spring weather; it has been in the 30s and 40s this week and I’m ready for warmth. This is completely normal for March in New England, but I’m over the cold.

Wanting … a larger wardrobe, but I’m on a spending freeze right now. Getting creative with my outfits using clothes I already have it is!

Planning … spring cleaning, my finals, and summer!
