Currently Vol. 9

02 March 2015

As much as I would like to believe otherwise, I don't adapt *that* well to change. I prefer plans to be more concrete (e.g. what time I am expected to meet someone somewhere, what time the program is estimated to end, et cetera) and get upset when something I have been looking forward to gets cancelled.

Last Friday, I was on leave from work so I can edit my buqo YA story in time for the February 28 deadline. I suddenly felt I didn't like my hair anymore so I tried to set an appointment with Bench FIX in TriNoma. I couldn't contact them though, but knowing that my favorite Bench FIX hairstylist Pabs should be in (Wednesday is his rest day) I decided to go anyway. I also met up with my friend Michelle whom I haven't seen in a while due to a brief falling out.

When we got there, surprise surprise, Pabs wasn't in! He was on leave! There were only two other stylists available: Chad and one other guy whose name escapes me at the moment. I wanted a pixie cut but I could only trust Pabs or Jude for that. I had my hair cut by Chad before and I wasn't a fan of how he cut it too short. The receptionist suggested I just go back the next day if I wasn't comfortable, but - and please don't laugh at me - it was a huge personal dilemma because I really wanted to go home with a new haircut that day. Besides, Saturday was no good either because of buqo YA graduation.

Long story short, I let Chad touch my hair, and I LOVED IT. I even had my hair colored a lovely red-violet because I felt the color would suit the new  cut.

It wasn't really the cut I originally wanted (I wanted a pixie cut and this isn't a pixie cut. It's a bob.) but I think this is one of the happiest I've been about a haircut, ever! To think I wouldn't have had it if I refused the chance for a change.

All's well that ends well. Here is this Monday's Currently!


The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins. Reviews said it's a creepier and grittier version of Gone Girl. I'm so excited to sink my teeth into it!

None yet. I'm still waiting for final approval of my song for Tales from the Metro before I get started, so in the meantime I'm trying to catch up on reading.

Magic by Reese and Vica. Such a magical song.


My new Black White Animal Camo Paseo from TOMS. It's such an honor to work with a company I believe in, really. Started by Blake Mycoskie to benefit the children in Argentina he befriended, TOMS is a company that recognizes a need and strives to answer that need. With every pair you purchase, TOMS will give a pair of new shoes to a child in need. One for One.

Of a lot of things. Can over-thinking be a legit profession? Because I am awfully good at that.


Endless CRAVINGS. It's that time of the month so give me all the sweets and all the chips!

The new Maybelline HyperSharp Liner and Maybelline HyperSharp Wing I was sent last Friday. I put them on this morning and they stayed put with very minimal budging on my oily lids! Review will be posted soon. ;)

To be able to find time to paint again. Without meaning to, I've become one of those people who live for the weekends. I read somewhere that you should "figure out what fuels your joy, then do lots of that." I am happiest when I make and whilst I'm happy that I am able to write, I also need to pick up my watercolor brushes again.

This is my first watercolor painting I sold
Thank you for believing in me and my art, Nikita!
To figure out what I'd want to do for my birthday this year. It's happening a little over a month from today! I went all out on my How I Met Your Mother-inspired party last year and I'm not sure if I'd want the same for this year. I don't even know if I want a party per se because 29 is an odd number to celebrate. Maybe I can just go out of town? IDK.

It were January again. How could it be March already??

Wishing you a great start to your week and month! Hang in there. ♡ 


  1. Raving with you about Maybelline's liners! I got the Wing last week and I love how it made the eye...uhm...lining (?) part of my makeup routine easier! Plus, Maybelline has always been a great go-to brand when I'm trying to stick to a budget and for a drugstore product, it's never disappointed! (I should have probably just waited for your review haha but I'm this happy about it. :P And I'm one of your silent readers.)

    Also, the new cut looks good on you!

  2. I am super lazy when it comes to eye makeup since they aren't easily visible most of the time anyway since I wear glasses, but I plan to use the Maybelline Liners every day! :D

    Thanks, Danielle! Glad to meet you! :)

  3. I am super inlove with your hair color! :)

  4. I;ve been wanting to dye my hair, not sure what I want it to be, though. I'm thinking about some pink ombre, lol. Will it be too crazy? XD and okay I can't wait for that maybelline re

  5. whoopeee... entered it accidentally -_- I meant maybelline review. I'm a sucker for nice eyeliners~!


Comments brighten up my day! Thank you for leaving kind words!
