munching through the midweek

Its no secret that Kei and I love being a couch potato, and there is no better time to be one than now. Because holidays are the perfect excuse to sleep through the alarm and go about marathon watching my favorite series on Netflix, and just this week we got I-flix too.

We really enjoy watching Netflix’s Dynasty

But if you were to make me choose, I still prefer Netflix. Because I am pretty much hooked into Netflix’x Dynasty that is based from a 1980’s series of the same name. *I have never seen the 1980’s one.  We also still enjoy watching Riverdale and Designated Survivor.

Another thing we also do when watching our favorite series is we go all out! I cook tacos, pasta or any food that we both love for dinner. We also stock up on our favorite eats and even go as far as running off to the nearest coffee shop to buy a drink. *Peppermint everything! -More so that the holidays are just around the corner. I am fond of peppermint.  It is like having a cozy midweek date night at home.

Our favorites this holiday season.  From left: Yellow Tail Pink Moscato, Starbucks Christmas Tree Peppermint Mocha -or if we cannot go out we have Owl instant white coffee with peppermint, Lamb Weston Potato wedges that I pop in the airfryer for a “guilt free” version, and Tostitos that we dip into the creamy spinach dip! 

We look forward to it every Thursday (the day all the series I mentioned here have new episodes).  Kind of like a pick-me-up in the middle of the week and motivation to get it through (deadline) Friday, till the happy days of the weekend.

summer stuff

After the holy week, I have been staying at home to Netflix and chill. *I just finished 13 reasons why* Still waiting for the next episode of Riverdale though.

I have also been happily hoarding yet another batch of lippies. Colorpop has a sale going on and I just couldn’t resist! Eagerly asked my cousin from the US to get me some so that I can see what the liquid lipstick hype is all about. I got those ultra satin ones: Aquarius, Echo park, Chandelier, Alyssa, and Dopey.

yey for new lippies!

Also did some closet purging. I let go of my clothes that became too small for me, and found replacements for my favorites. –I am still on a lookout for a lace top, and a chambray one.  I also got new tops since its summer and I am constantly wearing shorts. Pinstripe seems to be the thing this summer, this blue one from Kamiseta fits comfortably and on trend too!

I also got this cute red one with prints on the sides from Plains and Prints.

At home we have been trying to eat healthier. Swapping ice cream for yogurt, having salad for dinner at least once or twice a week.

Sice it is “sweat season” it is always better to have more sheets (for the rotation). We got this exact set, at a discounted price too!

Leaving with a summery photo taken from a summer luau we attended last weekend. How about you?

strange things, strange times

We have been starting to watch Netflix’s Stranger Things. We planned to watch one episode and ended up watching five in one go. safe to say that we are hooked. The last time we sort of marathon watched a series was breaking bad and that series was real good too!

This is why at times I like to watch tv series late. I get to watch uninterrupted without having to wait for the next episode.

In line with the topic of strange, my account was hacked and I think it would take a month or two to recover. There was quite a loss but its real life sh*t happens. This is why I am quiet for the past few days. Thankfully I got the administration to hear me out and help. So that was that. Not really easy and mostly knee shaking but that was that. I just have to be more vigilant.

Since I am on the dumps and a completely stuck at home these days, Kei tried his darn best to cheer me up with chocolates. He got me my fave Ghirardelli to chase away my sadness.

my all time fave chocolate never mind that I cannot pronounce its name correctly.

my all time fave chocolate! *never mind that I cannot pronounce its name correctly.*

On the brighter side, I have been chatting up quite a lot with my US based cousin, Jacky about life in general and about Funko pops – she is also a collector. And together with my other cousin they managed to snag and bring me some of the pops I want! That was so kind of them to send me stuff that could distract me to make this strange and confusing times a bit tolerable and making me feel like me. I am excited to feature them on my Pop Fridays! 

In return I am also creating my own “PammyBag” to send my cousin. -Kind of a carefully curated bag of random stuff that I think my cousin would like, as well as some collectibles and a letter for her. As of the moment I have a few stationary stuff and is still waiting for the bulk of the stuff (I ordered) for her to arrive from Japan.
