The Sunday Currently, v23

I’ve been having really sudden bouts of bad headache the whole weekend. It’s weird because when I’m doing something like reading or watching something it goes away but when I’m idle or just looking around that’s when I really feel it. I have a feeling it has something to do with my glasses usage because I’ve had to take it off and put it on again a few times this weekend.

Miracle on 5th Avenue by Sarah Morgan. I’ve been having a good streak with cheesy, romantic books this month and fortunately this is a trilogy starring 3 friends and their 3 different love lives. So far, so good!

About what to buy and bring to my trip next month. Will be spending almost all of December away from home so I need to plan out things and necessities.

New glasses. I love my current ones from Sunnies Specs but I got the Screen Safe lenses that have a blue filter and reflect blue light so it’s not very video call or selfie friendly. I’m even thinking of getting the exact same style just without the Screen Safe add-on. Also, those VANS Old Skool shoes that have been sold out in Cebu for months now!!

Not currently, but I just got home from watching Fantastic Beasts in the cinema. The downside of watching a movie in its first week (and most of all during the weekend) is the cinema traffic. Especially with a movie like Fantastic Beasts that require utmost attention, it’s going to be hard when you hear background noise of people eating popcorn, packets opening, soda slurping, and edible live commentary from people around you. Filipino moviegoers are very animated and vocally engaged, but at times that can be a drawback. I loved Fantastic Beasts but I think I need to watch it again, this time using noise-cancelling earphones.

A couple of things-

  • You know how the 2017 Starbucks Planner comes with a pouch and erasable pen? I love the pouch and pen more than I like the planner itself.
  • I got a Unionbank GetGo debit card last month and I’ve been using it a lot for purchases. I’m all for getting rewards for my shopping and accumulating GetGo points aren’t bad at all.
  • Uni-ball Signo DX 0.38 in all colors (I currently have about 6 and I absolutely love them)! I just found out that there is a 0.28 version of these pens. Best believe I’m going to hunt those down.

For the year to at least be better before it ends. There have been a lot of sad and disappointing things happening around the world and a small gleam of light and positive news that lead to a better future is really needed. That’s all I can say.

So I’ve been obsessed with scented candles these days and I bought a new one from Rustan’s this afternoon and I am completely in love with the smell! It smells abundantly of cherries and my room now smells like licorice which is one of my favorite things in the world. Love this thing. At this rate I’m probably going to be repurchasing a lot of these.

For overall good vibes and the year to end on a high note. I can’t believe it’s almost 2017!!!


  1. I’m into cheesy, romantic books right now, so I’ll check the one on your reading list. Any recommendations for underrated books? I felt like I already read all the overrated ones. Need something a bit different. lol.

    • You should read the Sarah Morgan series, the one I’m reading now is already the 3rd book! It’s pretty good and I really like it and I didn’t think I would. Good luck!
