Currently Reading: Turbulence By Whitney G. I love a good steamy romance novel, and this one, that was recommended by Black Heart Reviews , fits the bill. I enjoyed the characters and the setting of a flight attendant/pilot and the surprising twist at the end.

Current beauty addiction:  Bite Multisticks. I was sent these to test out for free by Influenster but I honestly am already ADDICTED to them. They are a cream stick that can be used as an eyeshadow, blush/contour, or lipstick. They are so creamy, easy to blend, and the perfect lazy girl product. Their formula is very unique too. I am already on the hunt to buy a new shade.

Currently eating out: The best meal I had out this past month was at Spartina on Melrose.  I met my friend who was visiting from San Francisco for the day and we ended up randomly finding this cute restaurant. I got the pork shoulder ragu, a glass of rose, and split a  “chocolate bongo” dessert ( chocolate sorbet sandwiched between a profiterole and drizzeled with chocolate glaze) .

Current workout: WundaBar Pilates. I rarely have taken from the same instructor twice and all of the classes are so different and unique (In a good way). Some are more yoga based, other are calorie burners, and some use the pilates reformer more than others.

Currently Drinking: Tea! I am kind of in tea mode. Earl Grey has been my jam. But also Good Earth, and a new one from Trader Joe’s- ginger turmeric!

Current purchase:  I treated myself to two workout tops by Nancy Rose Performance  that were on sale for $15 each from The Bar Method Pasadena’s 15th birthday celebration. They both have built in sports bras and are super comfortable.

Currently Cooking: It doesn’t matter that the temperature is warm out, I had a craving for soup. I made this recipe for Chicken Tortilla Soup from Averie Cooks twice this past month–it was that good. Basically you just throw everything in a large pot and let it simmer for a good 20 minutes!

Currently Watching: Real Housewives of New York Reunion. Bravo TV should be a religion. I seriously love so many of their shows and Andy Cohen is one of my favorite Celebrity personalities. RHONY is the best guilty pleasure.
