Sometimes when I log on to the Candy blog page, my mind draws a blank. What do I write about? And in true blog fashion, I always turn to memes or lists that have done their rounds on the webosphere. Here’s hoping it interests you and inspires you to post the same on your blog! Don’t forget to leave a comment with your blog link so I can read your list, too. (:

Reading: After finishing Gillian Flynn’s Gone Girl (was so curious about it after seeing the trailer for the movie, plus Marla’s recommendation), I remembered a book I had lying around forever ago. It’s nice to read a physical book after so long. I’ve been reading everything on iBooks (it’s so handy and light, hehe), but nothing beats the smell and feel of paper. My current read is Curtis Sittenfeld’s Prep—another Marley-recommended read—which is an old coming-of-age novel, but I still think very much applies to the youth of today.

Doing: Been trying to spend more time with my favorite little person in the world and I took the day off yesterday to visit her. We played the whole afternoon and I was so happy to watch her walk around and giggle to herself every time I showed her a photo I had taken of her. Can’t believe she’s already one and walking!

Working on: Can’t say what it is yet exactly, but it involves a lot of nail polish. Haha! I love candymag.com to bits, but it’s also quite fun to work on stuff outside of it. Plus, I get to work with two of my good friends on it so I’m doubly excited!

Watching: I’m a huge Lee Pace fan (anyone miss Pushing Daisies?), so when I saw that he had a new show on AMC (the same network that produces Mad Men—Steph, Sam, and I are big fans!), I knew I had to check it out! Halt and Catch Fire is set in the ’80s back when the personal computer was about to be big. It gets pretty intense, but I love it so far.

Loving: That two of my favorite musicians have new albums out! Ed Sheeran’s X is out and I’ve been listening to it on Spotify. My current fave is “Thinking Out Loud,” but that could very well change in the next few days. Jason Mraz’s YES! isn’t coming out till next month, but he’s been releasing a few songs plus this awesome short film that features 3 tracks from the album. How can you not love Mr. A-Z? I hope he swings by Manila when he tours this record.

What about you? What are you currently reading/doing/working on/watching/loving? Would love to read your lists, too!

Love,
Macy
