My August 2018 Currentlys…

CURRENTLY IN BEAUTY

I’ve been using Dr Teal’s Body Lotion in Lavender for a couple months and have been loving what it does to my skin so when I finally ran out of my Renpure body wash, I picked up the matching Lavender Dr Teal’s Body Wash with Pure Epsom Salt.

Honestly, I had never bought sunscreen before but, my skin was really starting to hurt so I had to grab something. Boyfriend told me Banana Boat is the best, so it’s what we got. I think it stinks and is sticky but, it’s the protection I need so whatever.

I received this IPKN Big Apple Suncream in my June 2018 Birchbox and although, I hate the scent, I like the protection. I don’t have any other sun protection for my face and I will not use that Banana Boat spray on it so I’m using this up.

My hair is seriously gross right now. I don’t know what to do. After using the Love, Beauty, and Planet shampoo – it just hasn’t been right. I tried this Detoxifying Pomegranate & Ginger Shampoo by OGX and it helped in removing the build-up and residue but, it left white flakes [AKA dandruff!] at my roots.

I’ve had eczema all my life. When I was younger my ma brought me to the doctor and he told us to buy Cortizone. I’ve been using it forever – the dry patches occasionally disappear but, they always come back. I went to CVS to buy more but, I saw the pretty packaging of Aveeno Active Naturals 1% Hydrocortisone Anti-Itch Cream and bought it instead. 😀 I like it so far – it works just as well as Cortizone.

I am in love with this City 24H Anti-Pollution Day & Night Moisturizing Emulsion by Marcelle that I received in my July 2018 Birchbox. It works wonders.

Usually, we buy Tom’s of Maine Anti-Plaque & Whitening Toothpaste but, when we went to buy our replacement, Walmart didn’t have any of that particular kind in stock. We opted for the Tom’s of Maine Luminous White Toothpaste in Clean Mint. It’s okay. I still like the Anti-Plaque & Whitening kind loads better, though.

For my base and top coat [as always], I used ORLY Nail Defense Strengthening Protein Treatment. On my ring finger, for a little bedazzle, I used Sally Hansen Hard As Nails in Tough Cookie. On my remaining 4 fingers, I used one coat of Sinful Colors Professional in Gold Medal. Last time I used a Sinful Colors polish, it stained my nails but, I hadn’t used a base coat. I hope it doesn’t happen this time. On my toes, I have Color Club Holographic in Sidewalk Psychic. I’ll probably be removing it all tomorrow and choosing a different color because they’re all messy and don’t match as much as I hoped they would [my fingers to my toes].

CURRENTLY IN ENTERTAINMENT

rsz_bigbrother18logo

Boyfriend and I are still keeping up with Big Brother Season 20. The last twist of the summer was revealed and the next person eliminated is going to the jury house – things are getting juicy, finally. In my opinion, the cast is pretty bland and boring this season. I don’t mind when anyone wins or loses the competitions and I change sides every other episode.

rsz_santa_clairta

We are also watching Santa Clarita Diet together. We are one or two episodes into Season 02 – it is SO hilarious!

rsz_the_bold_type

On my own, I’m watching The Bold Type. So far, I’ve only watched like three or four episodes of Season 01 – I’ll definitely keep on watching it, though.

rsz_harlots

Season 02 of Harlots is airing on Hulu right now!! New episodes come out every Wednesday!! It’s seriously one of the best shows I’ve ever watched – I am in LOVE with it.

rsz_four_weeks_five_people

I am reading Four Weeks, Five People by Jennifer Yu. I’m 29% through with it. It’s interesting.

Next on my reading list is Fatal Throne by Various Female Authors [Candace Fleming, M.T. Anderson, Jennifer Donnelly, Stephanie Hemphill, Deborah Hopkinson, Linda Sue Park, and Lisa Ann Sandell] then, Heart Recaptured [Hades Hangmen #2] by Tillie Cole.

I can’t stop listening to You Just Don’t Know It by Jonas Brothers when they were young, young, young! I love the passion in their voices; it’s so fun to sing while I’m doing my makeup.

Another oldie but, goodie I’ve recently been re-addicted to is Habits (Stay High) by Tove Lo [Hippie Sabotage Remix]. I can never get enough of this jam.

I’ve also been loving… from the “It Couple” of HollywoodHim & I by G-Eazy and Halsey. I’ve honestly been listening to it nearly everyday for the past few months. I still can’t stop, okay?!

I know, I know, I just went yesterday! But, I CAN NOT get this song Stick It To The Man from the Broadway Musical School of Rock out of my head!!

CURRENTLY IN FOOD & FASHION

rsz_snacks_collage

My snack drawers are bursting right now!! Let’s start from the top left photo, top left corner. We have Honey Maid S’mores Cereal, they’re almost all gone and were okay. Same with the Special K Cinnamon Pecan. We have one Watermelon Agave Popsicle by GoodPop left. [We also had these mango flavored ones by a different brand that disappeared too quickly to make it into this month’s Currentlys.] We have some Popchips Ridges in BBQ, Nature’s Bakery Organic Honey & Oat Soft Baked Bar in Strawberry, Welch’s Fruit Rolls in Berry, Jolly Rancher Chews, Starburst Sour Gummies, Town House Original Crackers, a nectarine, 3 red plums, KIND Kids Chewy Honey Oat Bars, Dunkin’ Donuts Caramel Coffee Cake [this is TRASH], and Kettle Brand Krinkle Cut Potato Chips in Salt & Fresh Ground Pepper. In the photo on the right, we have a box of the new Peanut Butter Chocolate Blasted Shreds – they were just plain nasty to me. To make s’mores, I have Honey Maid Graham Crackers, Green & Black’s 70% Dark Chocolate [too sweet and kind of sour?], and Kraft Jet-Puffed Marshmallows. We had to buy Sun-Maid Raisins for a recipe but, they’re nice for a snack. Of course, boyfriend has had our freezer stocked with Freeze Pops since the summer hit aaaand my most guilty snack of all: Oreos!! Man oh man, nothing tastes quite as delightful as America’s Favorite Cookie with a glass of cold [almond-cashew blend] milk. I hate that there is high fructose corn syrup in them but, hey, at least there’s no dairy, right?!

Earlier, when we went out to eat, I wore a striped t-shirt with a floral patterned collar from Rue 21 and soft comfy black shorts with cuffed legs and flowers from Forever 21.

Now, I’m wearing my red pajama pants with Fuck You in comic bubbles all over it, I bought these from Spencer’s a long while ago. For my top, I have on a gray v-neck t-shirt from someone else’s closet [I can’t remember whose, hehe] that says University of Minnesota Golden Gophers EST. 1851 in faded maroon letters on it.

Boyfriend made us some of that trash Caramel Dunkin’ Donuts Coffee [I showed you it up there ^] when we came home from dinner. I drank one Superman cup full of it while typing this.

CURRENTLY IN LIFESTYLE

wp-1533777745040..jpg

We’re smoking the last of Spartan Snow by Flora Vega. I took all of these photos before we went out to eat then, on the way home we hit up Inyo [the dispensary] and bought two more strains:

Kush Master by Flora Vega and Sunset Sherbet by Green Harvest.

Lastly, I’m using the cutest theme called Summer by MiJung Park. There’s a mermaid-man swimming in a glass of iced water on my lock screen but my phone won’t let me screenshot it! Dang it!

  1. I have also used OGX shampoo in the best. They are the best drugstore brand in my opinion.

    Do you ever take vitamin supplements?
    Current I am trying out vitamin B pills because I feel so tired constantly. Unfortnately I see no change after a month.

    Also taking Magnesium and that has been a miracle with digestion problems. I was wondering if it helps others as well 😅

      1. I used the red one, I believe it’s something with keratine.
        But also the light blue and brown one.
        I have been trying out so many shampoos!
        I always quite like the “Aussies” one.

        I tried the L’Oreal elvive for a while because it’s cheap. But there is a reason why it is not expensive.

        Biotin is the best for hair and nails! I can definitely recommend that!

        1. I have been trying out so many shampoos too! I think I had tried the red one before but not the light blue & brown! I think I might go for something at Sephora next though. 😛

          Do they sell biotin in gummies?! LOL. I’d so buy them 😀

  2. I loooove OGX shampoo and conditioner (although the sizes annoy me because i don’t get much use out of them for the money).

    I never knew you suffered from eczema too! I highly recommend E45 cream – and it’s great for soothing rashes too 🙂 That anti pollution moisturiser sounds absolutely brilliant. Honestly, I think pollution massively fucks up my skin – since I’ve been wearing foundation, it’s cleared up so much.

    Tove Lo Habits is such a banging tune! Have you heard Lykke Li – I Follow Rivers Magician Remix? That one’s a good, if you like Tove Lo I think you’d like it ❤

    1. What color is your favorite OGX shampoo?! They are kind of small bottles, aren’t they?

      Oh oh! Thank you so much! I am def going to look up some E45 Cream!!! ♡♡♡ & yes, girl. Pollution will end us all.

      Mia, I’m not sure I’m a fan of that song! 😝 Thank you for recommending it to me though! I always like listening to new stuff. ♡

  3. I also hate that Banana Boat spray on sunscreen. Ugh it is so sticky and doesn’t seem to rub in very well. I recently bought Equate’s Ultra-Sheer oil-free sunscreen lotion and it seems pretty great! 🙂

  4. Neutrogena makes some great sunscreen. I use that a lot. And Aveeno makes good sheer moisturizer with SPF 30 in it that I use every day on my face. But yeah, I can’t stand the feeling of sticky skin, just doesn’t feel clean!

  5. Anything Lavender- yes please.

    I’m SO proud of you for getting sunscreen ❤ ❤ yay yay yay! Haha.

    It’s good to know the OGX brand has other good options outside of the one I tried. I bet that smells amazing too!

    Okk you are convincing me to watch Santa Clarita Diet. I feel like I need something lighter, I’ve been watching pretty intense shows lately, so this sounds great!

    Him and I is SUCH a good song. Love it.

    Ahhh thank you for sharing your snack drawer! I am so nosy and it is one of my favorite things to know what snacks people keep around haha. LOVE honey maid graham crackers. Too stinking good.

    1. I know, right? Lavender is so yummy. ♡ & thank you, I still hate the smell but, the sun is painful. 😭 I mean, it was good at detoxifying but it dried my scalp out a bit. The smell isn’t that good lol, it smells like man cologne?

      Yesss if you’re looking for a light & quick show, you should def watch Santa Clarita Diet. It cracks me up!!

      Isn’t it?! Love that song, love Halsey, and I’m even starting to love G-Eazy lol.

      I am nosy & always want to know about other people’s snacks too. 😂 & yesss, Honey Maid Graham crackers are so good even plain & not in a s’more!

      Thank you!!!! ♡♡♡

  6. I love that floral and stripes outfit! It looks so comfy too! I love anything lavender, so I might have to check out that body lotion. I rarely ever put on lotion, except for my hands, but that sounds like a nice lotion to put on before bed. Lavender is known for its relaxation properties, and it’s such a calming scent. I love “Him and I”. It’s sad they broke up, but apparently he cheated. =/ I’m still waiting for Halsey to cut his dick off lol (Like the song says)

    1. Thank you! ♡♡♡ It is a really soft & comfy outfit. The lotion is amazing – it says “soothe & sleep” right on the bottle. It’s really inexpensive & cruelty-free too!

      & no way! What the heck, I just found out they’re dating & they’re already broken up?! 😭

  7. I’ll have to try that body wash I only have the bath salts but I haven’t tried them yet since my bathtub is so small lol. But one of these days I swear I will use them lol.
    And holy moly your snack drawers!!!!!! Nooooo……please don’t tempt me!!!! 😭😭😭 Lol
    I don’t think I’ve tried ogx, maybe the ones I have are ogx, I can’t remember but the bottles look so similar lmao. Maybe it is I just haven’t paid attention but I have the coconut milk ones lol.
    And…loving the outfit!! I tried to do my nails this week and gave up twice after trying lol

    1. I saw the bath salts at the store but I never read the bag! Are they for aromatherapy or do they make bubbles/fizzes?!

      I’m sorry for the snack drawer!! ❤ Diets are so hard but I know you're strong & can do it. ❤

      I think the Coconut Milk on IS OGX hahhah! There are SO many different kinds.

      Thank you, babe!! I understand the pain – I still haven't repainted mine because I don't wanna go through the struggle hahaha.

      1. it’s marketed as a “soaking solution” to soothe & sleep lol. which is why I got it 🙂 you know me, I love lavender lol.
        Maybe that’s why I thought they were different, gosh I cannot keep up with all the different ones they have haha

    1. Oooh baby sunscreen? Do they have sprays for babies or just lotions?! That’s such a good idea, I usually love baby stuff because it’s so easy on the skin. ❤ & my boyfriend told me they all stink!! LOL.
