My December 2018 Currentlys…

Hi, guys!! Here I am!! Coming at you a day late with my Currentlys for December 2018. It’s hard for me to even catch the sun now that it goes down so freakin’ early but the thing is… I DID catch it yesterday and I WAS taking photos… only of the stuff I bought from Ross though…and I somehow completely forgot all about this post. I’m so sorry lol.

I am bringing back the Beauty category when/if there are NEW items added into my DAILY routine. πŸ™‚ So let’s start there, shall we?

CURRENTLY IN BEAUTY

I kind of like the Tarte – Lights, Camera, Lashes 4-in-1 Mascara in Black. It’s what I’ve been using everyday now but, I probably won’t buy a new one to replace it.

I am back to my trusty Schmidt’s – Natural Deodorant but this time in Lavender + Sage.

The refreshing scent of Pink Grapefruit in this Body Butter from The Body Shop is actually “energising” like the tub claims. My skin is feeling softer and softer with every use but, I am still not liking how long it takes to sink into my skin. I have been using it everyday though and I will use it until it’s empty.

CURRENTLY IN ENTERTAINMENT

I am nearing the end of Season 02 of Star. I loved the ending of Season 01 and will definitely be watching Season 03! I would include songs from this show down below but, there are just TOO many good ones. Watch it for yourself if you love music!!

I’m just a bit over halfway through With Love at Christmas by Carole Matthews. It’s like reading through a cheesy Christmas film and I love it.

A couple weekends ago, I was on stage and the DJ played Drew Barrymore by Bryce Vine. It was so nice to dance to and I haven’t been able to get the lyrics out of my head ever since. Love love love it.

The first time I heard Be Alright by Dean Lewis on the radio, I immediately turned the volume up and looked it up on my phone. I am a big fan– it’s such a sad, pretty song.

I’ve also just been playing all the Christmas songs from the show Glee. So cool that YouTube has them in one continuous track like this. My heart breaks every time I hear Finn’s voice. 😦

On our NEW XBOX One S, I am playing Disneyland Adventures on my own. I’ve never been to Disneyland so I’m having a BLAST exploring the park!

Taking turns with boyfriend, we are playing Max The Curse of Brotherhood together. There are lots of fun puzzles and different stages, it definitely takes a lot of brain power to get through some of them.

CURRENTLY IN FOOD & DRINKS

Okay… so we just went grocery shopping last night. Here are the snacks we got:

  • Stacy’s Pita Chips – Fire Roasted Jalapeno (YUM!)
  • Stacy’s Pita Chips – Simply Naked
  • 3 Bags of Peatos – Fiery Hot (one was already devoured by boyfriend before the photo lol)
  • Boom Chicka Pop – Sea Salt Microwavable Popcorn (REALLY GOOD!!)
  • Private Selection – Restaurant Style Salsa in HOT (not super spicy but, there’s a nice little kick)
  • Private Selection – Muhammara Red Pepper & Walnut Dip (a bit too sweet)
  • Lily’s – Classic Hummus (too thin and not enough flavor)
  • Mission – Tortilla Rounds
  • Corn Nuts – Chile Picante
  • NERDS – ROPES!

We also got lots of bread (that I didn’t photograph)!! Dave’s Killer Bread – Raisin’ The Roof, Dave’s Killer Bread – Sprouted Whole Grains, and we needed hamburger buns for our Quorn – Spicy Chick’n Patties (that they finally re-stocked!) but, they were fresh out of the kind we like, so we got Papa Pita – 100% Whole Wheat & Honey Thinwiches instead. Of course, we got some Chao “cheese” slices and lunch meat from the deli (pastrami and roast beef), too… now we’re getting into the “lunch foods” though so, I better stop myself before I tell you what’s in my whole entire kitchen, hehe.

Smith’s gave us an eCoupon for any bag of Gevalia Kaffe ground coffee, we chose the Bold Majestic Roast. It’s alright. We’ll be able to drink it all but, will not repurchase.

CURRENTLY IN LIFESTYLE

We are actually smoking Orange Blossom by FloraVega right now. I don’t know why we are using a Canes Cookies jar…

You already know I changed my phone’s theme to a Christmas one. I chose Santa by mi hee kim but, there are tons of other free and cute ones… I’ll probably have to change it again before the month ends.

  1. Oh my gosh, that deodorant made me break out and I had to stop using it, lol! BUT it does work well and smells good!

    And I haven’t listened to any Christmas Glee songs yet this year. I’m definitely going to do that now!

    1. Oh no!! It did?? It’s so crazy how different everyone’s skin is. It hasn’t made me break out and has worked beautifully for me but it didn’t work for my sister at all… she said she was still sweating and not smelling very nice.

      Ahhh, I love the Glee Christmas songs. ❀ They remix them up enough to make them more modern but not too much where it doesn't sound like the same song anymore. Plus, all of their voices are just gorgeous!

  2. All of your snacks looks so good! I never knew that Boom Chicka Pop had microwavable popcorn! I want to try that! I also love Dave’s Killer Bread! We get Oroweat Organic 100% Whole Grain since it’s a little cheaper, but I would totally get Dave’s Killer Bread if we could. It’s delicious! πŸ™‚

      1. I’m going to look for that popcorn! I know microwavable popcorn isn’t very healthy but it makes everything easier lol. Totally want to try it! I never thought about getting whole wheat hamburger & hot dog buns. That sounds good!

        1. I think the microwave itself is evil or something, according to health specialists… lol. But, I think the Boom Chicka Pop brand is quite clean so it shouldn’t be too unhealthy. πŸ™‚ Oroweat does really good whole wheat buns. You will like them!! ❀

          1. You’d think so according to a lot of “health” people haha. And I definitely believe it for some things, like plastic containers and such. But that won’t stop me from using the microwave for other things! πŸ˜‰ And yes, agreed–Boom Chicka Pop seems to be careful about their ingredients so I think they’d take that into consideration!

  3. The breads I’ve tried from Daves Killer Bread were too seedy but I may just look into the others and see if I like those better.
    I think we’ve talked about body butters before as well. I still need one lol.
    I love that you change your phone background, how do you so that exactly? An app or is it an in-phone thing?

    1. I think all kinds of the Dave’s brand are pretty seedy lol. It is made in Oregon, isn’t it?? I think we have talked about the body butter & the bread before LOL. ;D

      I have the Galaxy Note & the themes are an in-phone thing! There are so many to choose from!

      1. Awh man 😦 lol.. well, maybe I’ll find one that I like because there have been only a select few that I didn’t mind the seediness. And yeah, I think they’re based over here lol.
        Ooooh, I have the Galaxy S5.. I need to upgrade my phone, it sucks! It has slowed down drastically in the last few months, the battery no longer lasts, and it freezes a lot. Also, connectivity is crap too! lol

        1. I like the green bag and the teal bag but I hate the yellow bag of the Dave’s bread LOL. Oh & of course I love the purple one (it’s raisin cinnamon bread).

          I actually think the S5 has the themes app in it, too!! I’m not sure though… I thought all Androids had it. I have the Note 8 right now! I highly recommend it or the newer one, the Note 9, if you are thinking about getting a new phone anytime soon!!

          1. Ooooh raisin cinnamon bread sounds like my.kind of thing lol.
            I’ll have to look through my phone. I’m seriously in need of a newer one but I can’t afford the expensive ones lol. My phone is lagging and freezing. Pretty sure the processor can no longer handle anything lol.

            1. You would like the Dave’s Raisin bread! It’s not too seedy & it’s so thick. Yum! πŸ™‚

              Oh! That’s okay! Even the non-expensive phones are good these days & they are like $5 a month payments!! You can sell your phone to Amazon when you do get a new one. We sold our iPhone 6S’ which were out around the same time as your phone!

                1. Yesss!! Boyfriend made french toast out if it once for us. It was perfection.

                  No they didn’t charge us at all!! They pay for shipping and everything. They’ll send you this sticker that you put on the package and you just bring it to the post office and they send your virtual money to your Amazon account when they receive it!

                  1. Omg that’s actually quite neat! I never knew about that. I’ll look into it, I already got my new phone so once I’m done transferring everything I’ll restart it to factory settings and send it away lol.

                    1. Yes!! Ran through a few issues but we kind of sorted them out and I lost all my memos because Alex didn’t ask me first before restarting my phone to factory settings. I was so upset. All my book reviews were in there and other lists I had made for blogging 😭😭

                    2. I was super angry at Alex omg you have no idea! In hindsight, it’s not that important I guess, but luckily I have a ton more ideas written in my journal πŸ˜€ so I GUESS it’s okay LOL
                      And not yet, I still haven’t taken my contacts out and some photos, but once that’s done I’ll be sure to look it up or ask my brother. I can probably try to get rid of a few other old phones who knows

                    3. Hahaha, I can only imagine. I would rip my boyfriend’s head off for something like that, too!!! The ideas will all come back to you eventually & now you can just get through the ones in your journal first πŸ˜€

                      Yeah, totally!! It’s really easy to do!! You’ll be amazed lol
