A List For As Of Lately …

feeling// super sad that 5 Pointz has been completely painted over!!! I wrote a post about my visit to 5 Pointz last year while living in NYC annnnd my heart breaks just thinking about everything that has recently happened to this wonderful place of free expression… RIP 5 Pointz :(

eating// cereal and sandwiches at all times of the day because I’ve been too lazy to cook this past week… #chefstarra is taking a brief break ya’ll annnd #chefcharles needs to step his cooking game up.

drinking// Yellow Tail wine … I just recently tasted this brand of wine and I’m hooked. 

practicing// yoga. I love a good vinyasa flow especially in a heated room. Bikram yoga is for the birds and puts too much stress on my back. Vinyasa all day errryday.

mastering// the art of keeping our apartment clean. Since moving in together with Charles, I’ve learned we have distinctly different cleaning habits (to put it lightly) … Don’t worry, a post about the transition of long distance to living together is on its way haha.


learning//
how to make time for everything and still have time for myself. It’s not easy… Most times when things need to be done after I get home from work? I’d rather just go to sleep.


playing//
scrabble, phase 10, monopoly and catch phrase. When you live without a T.V., board games are the only way to go.


finishing//
the last bit of unpacking for our apartment. I seriously wish we had more closets to hide stuff in.


reading//
absolutely nothing. but I have a long list of novels I’d like to read. Just no time at the moment.


enjoying//
my commute to work everyday. I literally walk out the door of my apartment complex, walk across the street and hop on the free shuttle to work. can’t beat it!


listening//
to Quadron‘s new album on repeat and repeat and repeat. I can’t say enough about how much I love this Danish group. 

contemplating// a blog move to either wordpress or squarespace … and making a few changes to my blog design.

lusting// after these nike sneakers, this plaid dress and this winter coat from UO… Oh yea annnd we most definitely can’t forget about this camera either. 


wearing//
fitted jeans and comfy sweaters or nothing at all … Confession: I really enjoy being in the nude most of the time.

baking// pumpkin chocolate chip cupcakes… I may be too lazy to cook but I’m never too lazy to bake.


wondering//
when Charles and I will be able to finally talk about planning our wedding without getting stressed out by the idea of spending so much money and then changing the subject… I have a feeling this is going to be a lonnnnnng engagement haha.

loving// this sexy dance video choreographed by Zach Lattimore… Because as a woman, who doesn’t like their kisses down low? hehe.. (naughty laugh)


working//
on a plan for where I want to be in my life five years from now. Wishes are for dreamers, Goals are for believers..


travelling//
to NYC at the end of December!!! It’s been over 4 months since I moved down to the DMV and I can’t wait to visit my previous home-city soon :)


planning//
a trip to France next summer! A super close friend of mine is getting married there and Charles and I are hoping to head over to Croatia afterwards! Any info about traveling to Croatia is greatly appreciated!


wanting//
dark chocolate. always dark chocolate.

*I originally saw this list on Tania’s blog (which I shamelessly stalk) and knew I had to re-hash it for a blog post since I’m also a huge fan of creating lists… There’s something so satisfying about crossing an item off my to-do list once it’s been completed; same with calender planners. On that note, I leave you with a single off Quadron’s new album to jam along to and I hope everyone has a great weekend!*

  • I have been in a "no-cooking" mood myself this week. Blahhh!!!

    I've never taken a hot yoga class…but I really, really want to.

  • 1. Yellowtail's Cabernet-Shiraz is my favorite. Two glasses and I'm gone for the night, lol. 2. Now you're making me want to go back to a my hot yoga studio, but the f'n classes are just so darn expensive. I've put a membership on my Christmas list. 3. I've always said I'd love to visit a nude beach, because I LOVE being naked! Don't get me wrong, I'm not in the best shape to be letting it hang all out in public, but at least at a nude beach I'd have an excuse to not have to fuss with putting on any kind of clothing.

  • those photos are beyond cool!

    i just came home with a bottle of red and am now kicking myself for not picking yellow tail because it was one of the options. next time. also, board games are the jam – we have a massive TV but hardly ever use it! x

  • That sucks that they painted over 5 Pointz, looked look a cool place :(

    And yay for trips. The only place left in the US that I haven't been to (that I want to) in NYC. Crazy right?

    And France – you're going to have a blast. Also on my list lol!

  • THANK YOU for stalking!! Loved the list :) x

  • true story: we wanted to spend NYE in NYC but the cost of errrthing was way to expensive. as;ldfjalskdfj we could've met up :/

    and i'm gonna do this list now hahha

  • Lovely list :)
