Currently – September 2020

Currently – September 2020

Hooray for Currently, my favorite link-up! Anne from In Residence gives us five prompts each month, and we see where they take us. This month our prompts are appreciating, anticipating, collecting, starting, and finishing.


appreciating: any and every good thing, big or small! My heart is weary of anger and dissension, so I’m choosing to watch–with even more intention than usual–to find The Good! Today’s good things: Jamaican Me Crazy coffee in a special mug; gentle, rolling thunder; finally getting a new bite guard (goodbye, sinus headaches!); and tonight’s cloud situation. I mean…

anticipating: lots of fun manicures! Today FedEx delivered my Olive & June Everything Box!!! I’ve heard SO much about this nail polish that I decided to give it a go. I did my homework ahead of time (yeah, I was THAT student) and watched the how-to videos on the website. So when the box arrived today I jumped right in and did my first mani! I’m impressed so far! I hope it holds up well. I’ll keep you posted! (Here’s my referral link if you’d like to order a set for yourself!) (Also, the colors I chose from left to right are SD, MG, AW, HJ, SC, and JJ (the color I’m wearing).

collecting: new books, apparently. I don’t usually purchase many books. I use the library and Scribd for most of my reading, but tis the season for great books by my favorite authors! So far I’ve purchased:

The Lazy Genius Way by Kendra Adachi
All the Devils are Here by Louise Penny (warning for language)
Diet for the MIND: The Latest Science on What to Eat to Prevent Alzheimer’s and Cognitive Decline by Dr. Martha Clara Morris

and I’m eyeing

Welcome Home: A Cozy Minimalist Guide to Decorating and Hosting All Year Round by Myquillyn Smith
Shadow & Light: A Journey into Advent by Tsh Oxenreider.

starting: the Get Your Pretty On Fall Capsule this Friday!!! If you want to (1) look cute and on trend (2) without having to buy a ton of clothes, loop back here Friday and sign up! Allison at GYPO kindly marches you to your closet to use what you already have instead of immediately sending you to the mall to spend gobs of money. She styles fashion basics over multiple seasons, creating overlap. By following Allison’s outfit formulas I’ve learned how to shop wisely, and I’ve saved a ton of money. I don’t buy anything now unless I can style it three ways!

Add a shirt over a summer sundress to transition it into autumn!

finishing: summer, hallelujah! Summer here in Coastal Georgia is HOT, y’all! Too hot to do most of my favorite things. Autumn is my favorite season on multiple levels, and I choose to follow the meteorological seasons, so I wish you a HAPPY AUTUMN!!! (Meteorological autumn is September through November. That makes way more sense than waiting for those pesky equinoxes and solstices, am I right?!?)

How would YOU respond to those prompts?!? I’d love to hear! Either link up with my bloggy friends and me HERE or leave a comment a below!

    1. Thanks, Lysha! The dress is from Old Navy. I bought it in a tropical print and love it so much I order it in this print as well! Hoping that cooler weather hurries on down to Georgia!

  1. Those nail polishes keep showing up everywhere! I just might have to get them a try. I love that color you are wearing!!

  2. Love that look on you! I wouldn’t even have guessed that you had put a shirt over a dress – genius! And yes, do report back on the nail polish. Instagram has been trying to sell me that box, and I’ve been thinking it might be a perfect birthday gift for my sister. It all looks so pretty!

  3. Oh my gosh, Michael Ann, that dress with the blouse over it should be your new fall uniform. You look sooooo pretty. White is a great color (color-less?) for you. And the spice color of the dress is perfect for autumn. Perfection.

    Like the nail colors you shared too. Wish PC would take up giving me regular manis!! Hmm, how could I bribe him?
