Ah, hello June, would you look at that, we’re halfway 2020 already! Today I wanted to talk about the things I’ve been reading, watching, wearing, and listening to lately, consider them June essentials. There’s quite a few good stuff I’ve been dying to share with you all so let’s jump right into it!
CURRENTLY READING: Mrs. Dalloway by Virginia Woolf
Whatever. I gave in. There’s something about Virginia Woolf’s writing that always makes me want to come back to her novels and I’ve fallen victim to the stream of consciousness bait once again! Ha. Mrs. Dalloway has been sitting on my shelf for years now, I think I got it in 2017, and I just thought well maybe it’s about time I got around to finally reading it, so I did!
As I’m writing this I’m currently on page 70-something (my copy has 202 pages) and so far, I’m liking it a lot. It’s easier to read than both A Room of One’s Own and The Waves, which I wrote a review of last month. I can’t speak for Woolf’s other novels, but with what I’ve read so far in Mrs. Dalloway, it’s so much more enjoyable to say the least.
CURRENTLY WATCHING: Gossip Girl
I am sooooo so so many years late but I started watching Gossip Girl! This is not usually the kind of show I enjoy, but okay, consider me hooked. Recently, we’ve been having it at home playing in the background the entire day while getting other tasks done, and it’s really just a super fun show. Also, I love Blair Waldorf, seriously. I demand immediate ownership of her entire wardrobe.
CURRENTLY WEARING: The Penny Round Necklace with Swarovski of Zoey PH
Oh but what an elegant gift this necklace is from Zoey PH! Zoey PH is a jewellery brand based in Manila, Philippines where not only products are affordable, but also high-quality. They offer 925 sterling silver with Swarovski crystals and Titanium jewellery for everyday use. Not only that, but you’ve got your choices too as they’ve got several unique options from colored gemstone rings to Swarovski crystal rings. And if in any case you have any issue with your jewellery within the first three months, Zoey PH will replace it for free. After that, you only pay the shipping and handling fee of Php 800 pesos and everything’s taken care of.
However, since we’re pretty much still under quarantine, I guess it wouldn’t be an issue to wear this around at home for now, would it? It’s too pretty not to!
CURRENTLY LISTENING: Jojo, Marian Hill, and so much more!
And to wrap things up, what’s a good month without a playlist? Not only did Jojo release a new album after so long, but Marian Hill’s latest EP is literally the best thing right now. Here’s my current playlist with everything I’ve been loving listening to lately!
