If you’re subscribed to my newsletter, you’ve already heard a little bit about “Currently.” If you aren’t subscribed to my newsletter, first- go subscribe (click here)! You’ll get bonus content and first access to new things on my website! Second, I’m starting a new(ish) series called Currently! I took part in this series on a former blog of mine and I wanted to bring it to Carrie Crista because I loved it! Every month, I’ll let you know about 2-3 things that are current for me. Every month, I’ll talk about different “currents” but I’ll let you know about things like what I’m currently eating, drinking, watching, reading, listening to, wearing, etc. At the end of each currently, I’ll ask you what your currents are so I can get to know you a little better and get some ideas as to things I should check out!
This month’s post is all about what I’m currently drinking, watching, and listening to!
This month has been all about Pumpkin Spice Lattes for most people. Me? I’m a Salted Caramel Mocha kind of girl. All day, every day. The Salted Caramel Mocha is probably the most underrated Starbucks drink and I, honestly, have no idea how people can like the Pumpkin Spice Latte more than the SCM! Don’t get me wrong, I love pumpkin. Pumpkin bread, muffins, pancakes…pretty much everything pumpkin I like. But a PSL? Hard pass. So yeah, Salted Caramel Mochas have been my life this month! (Pro tip: you can get an SCM year round, just ask for a toffee nut mocha- there’s no salted topping so it’s a little different, but the drink itself is basically the same thing).
I make Spotify playlists for every season. Winter is generally just my Christmas playlist, but the concept is still valid. This fall, I have a lot of throwback songs on my playlist. I’ve got some Incubus on there (Dig and Drive), Yellowcard (Only One), MeWithoutYou (Silencer), and then I have some more recent songs. One of my favorite songs right now is “Little One” by Highly Suspect. I tend to gravitate towards slower, more minor key, mostly rock or alternative type music in the fall. I don’t know why, but I’ve always been that way! I’d be lying if I said I didn’t put my Christmas playlist on every so often, but I just can’t help it! Christmas music puts me in the best mood.
I feel like I have watched everything on Netflix at this point. I’m waiting for more horror movies to come out for Halloween, but, until then, I’m rewatching Friends for the millionth time. It never gets old and I can have it on in the background while I get things done. I started watching the new season of American Horror Story, but I can’t get into it. I’ve seen every single season and, I know it’s only been two episodes, but there isn’t any sort of story line forming yet and I’m getting bored. I was really disappointed with Roanoke and I thought Cult had a TON of potential but so far, I’m underwhelmed. I still think Murder House and Asylum are my favorites! We are SO behind on Big Brother, it’s not even funny. They need to start next season mid/late May instead of late June because life gets busy towards the end of the season and this season won’t end until almost October!
So that’s it for my first “Currently” post! Let me know in the comments what kinds of things you want me to talk about on “Currently” and let me know what you are currently drinking, listening to, and watching!
