Currently: April 2016.

Another month, another currently list. Welcome to April. It should be Spring right? Well it sure doesn't feel like it in Michigan. Temperatures are below 30 degrees in the mornings and at night and we need to unfrost our cars each morning before heading to work. Now that I am typing this, it is snowing and we can get anywhere between 2 to 5 inches. Of course it is snowing now in mid April since on Christmas it was in the 50s. Anyhow, as usual I am linking up with Anne and Jenna.

making: healthier eating and drinking choices. Lots of vegetables, fish, whole grain pasta with tomato or pesto sauces, salads and light soups; also to drink -  tea, 100% natural juice drinks and healthier coffees like decaf and light coffee drinks. Another thing I am making is a Spring wreath, better late than never I know. There is so much inspiration online and on Pinterest. I still think it is OK to put up a Spring wreath now. After all our Easter is actually on May 1st and I hope by then it will feel warm enough to wear a pretty dress, you know a real Easter outfit.

wishlisting: a nice pastel spring bag in a decent size like a satchel or a tote like this one or this one. Which one do you like best? I would also love to add a Rose Quartz/Baby Pink Faux Leather Moto Jacket like this. I am also eyeing the one in the collage but in soft pink. It is by Express. Last but not least, I am craving two different pairs of shoes: these sneakers and some camel or cognac flatform sandals. What are you wish-listing this Spring?

cleaning: I am cleaning out every drawer, every nook, every credenza, dresser and closet. I am doing a major Spring clean-out. I wish I had taken some photos so far but I didn't have time about that or think about it while I was cleaning and organizing. There was so much unused or expired products and junk in the bathroom. I am sure I am not alone here, no? How does all that stuff accumulate? 

I tend to be bad when it comes to clothes and some of them I tend to hoard for many years. Truth be told, several pieces haven't been worn in years and others have never even worn. To keep me motivated and thorough in cleaning out my closet, I am following the rule here (above).

Hot Pink+White Soft Chenile Sweater: Arizona via JC Penney (New) (similar, Splurge), (similar in different colors, Great Deal), (similar colorblocked, Steal, love this).
Black Elastic Headband w/ Nude+Silver Crystal Embellishment: Wal Mart (New) 
Gold Fuzzy Glittery Wallet: Old Navy (similar, Splurge, love this), (very similar, Great Deal).
Gold-tone Ring w/ Amethyst Oval Stone: Lord & Taylor (similar, Splurge), (gorgeous option, Great Deal, love this), (fun option, Steal, love this).

posting: Wintery Outfits still. And on Monday there will be a heavy sweater and photos on a snow day, sorry. That is just how the weather has been. Too bad because I have done a lot of Spring shopping and also am excited to wear some of my previous warm weather pieces. I am also still wearing sweaters (like in the photo above), thick cardigans and blanket scarves. While on Instagram I am posting several pictures and videos of Vivian and daily meals, mostly. Follow me here.

tasting: This is what I am currently eating (my late breakfast today). So what I am tasting is a toasted bagel with pinenut flavored hummus and some fresh fruit: green grapes and strawberries (they were so sweet too). I am also drinking a hot coffee I just made with milk, a little bit of sugar and some tiny marshmallows on top. 

Ant this is what Vivian is currently eating (for late breakfast): a toasted bagel with a bread buttery spread and some strawberries which she insists on calling red grapes (LOL) and she is drinking some organic Orange Juice. All of this while watching one of her cartoons on her iPod, of course. Otherwise, meal time is a lot harder and she wouldn't eat if no cartoons were involved lol. My toddler is a very picky eater and such a small-portion eater too, so I will take whatever I can get.
