My February 2019 Currentlys…

CURRENTLY IN BEAUTY

This Camellia Gold Spun Lip Balm by Tatcha is not the best in the world but, I’m determined to use it everyday until it’s all gone. It moistens my lips after first application but I must carry it with me at all times to reapply when necessary (which is quite often).

I ran out of my daily moisturizer so I decided to try H2O+ Beauty’s Oasis Hydrating Treatment that I received in my January Ipsy. I’ve been using it everyday and I like it more and more each time.

In my December Ipsy, I received R+Co’s High Dive Moisture and Shine Creme. It makes my hair absolutely luscious and I usually hate all hair products. I’ll probably cry when I run out of this little sample.

I bought this miracle Nail + Cuticle Care Nutrient Conditioner by Earth Therapeutics from Ross a couple months ago and wow, it really does its job right away and you don’t need to use a lot of product at all. This tube is gonna last me so long!

I am back to my favorite mascara on the planet: Sephora’s Lashcraft Length + Volume in Noir.

CURRENTLY IN FOOD & DRINK

Can’t stop, won’t stop eating these spicy ass Hot Chili Peppers by Mezzetta like they’re pickles.

Do you guys know how hard it is to find dairy-free croutons? Well, it is way too hard, okay? Luckily, our grocery store got this huge shipment of new Simple Truth Organic products and I was able to find these Seasoned Croutons with Garlic, Onion & Parsley. They were surprisingly dairy-free (as are all my other snacks I will be listing!) and delicious.

Our grocery store also got these Simple Truth Organic Snack Crackers. πŸ˜€ They taste just like Ritz but, without the high fructose corn syrup and other crap!

Just one more Simple Truth Organic item, I promise!! Dark Chocolate Espresso Beans rarely have no dairy so I squealed when I found these. They don’t cost an arm and a leg like a lot of other choco espresso beans either. πŸ˜‰

I love these crispy, semi-sweet, and nutty Honey Almond Cookies by LuvYu. They are coffee’s absolute best friend.

I could probably eat this whole box of Garden Herb Triscuits in one sitting…

Variety Pack of Nature Valley Crunchy Granola Bars… need I say more? We bought two boxes of these because of an eCoupon and the first box went by so fast.

I’m a bit picky about my French dressing, if I’m being honest. Sometimes it’s just way too sweet or way too tart. Organicville makes theirs just right. I always say “gosh! That’s so perfect!” every single time I have it.

We are almost finished with another bag of Peet’s Coffee Grounds. This time we tried the Major Dickason’s Blend. Yummy yummy, I’m drinking some right now. πŸ™‚

CURRENTLY IN LIFESTYLE

I had been putting body wash in my Beauty category in the past but I think it fits more into Lifestyle… what do you guys think? We’re trying the J.R. Watkins Body Wash in Lemon Cream now. It smells super fresh and exactly as you’d expect Lemon Cream to. Makes my skin so soft, it feels almost silky!

Next to the J.R. Watkins Body Wash, I found some J.R.Watkins Hand Soap. We were in need of some so I thought we might as well try it. I chose the Aloe & Green Tea scent… I like it alright but, I do kinda wish we got the matching Lemon Cream.

For flower, we are smoking Purple Punch by Verano.

In my beautiful Brass Knuckles battery, I am smoking a Grape Ape THC oil cartridge by Dank Vapes. The back of the box says:

“Grape Ape propagated by apothecary Genetics and Barney’s Farm, is a mostly indica strain that crosses Mendocino Purps, Skunk, and Afghani. Named for its distinct grape-like smell, this Indica is known for providing carefree relaxation that can help soothe pain, stress, and anxiety. Its dense, compact buds are wreathed in deep purple leaves which darken as this indica reaches full maturation following its 7 to 8 week flowering time.”

As my phone theme, I’m using this gorgeous watercolor painting one called Sandy City by Black Turtles.

CURRENTLY IN ENTERTAINMENT

I had thirty minutes left of The Late Bloomer when I went to bed last night. I can’t wait to see the end! So hard to believe it’s a true story.

I’m 80% through with Sweetpea by C.J. Skuse but I have to wait my turn to have it again from the eLibrary. I am ashamed I couldn’t finish it on time.

In the meantime, I just started The Spectacular Now by Tim Tharp. I’ve only read the first few pages and I already know I’m going to love it. I can’t wait to finish it and then, watch the movie on Netflix. πŸ˜€

The only song I’ve been listening to on repeat that I haven’t shared in one of these Currentlys already is Unlove You from the show Star (the Star & Mary version). Brings me near to tears every time I hear it… their voices are soooo pretty… (especially together). ❀

  1. Ooh love those garden herb Triscuits!! They are so, so delicious with hummus. Also, I’m pretty sure we are drinking the exact same Peet’s coffee right now!! It really is so good! I love how much flavor it has. Oh and I never knew Ritz has corn syrup in their crackers, that’s so weird!

    1. We actually did dip them with some garlic hummus!! I liked it but they are so good even on their own, yum!! I love that we’re drinking the same coffee right now. πŸ˜€ It’s the best, isn’t it? We haven’t tried one Peet’s we didn’t like yet. & yeah! SO many crackers have high fructose corn syrup in the ingredients. It’s crazy!

      1. Oh nice! They are so tasty both ways for sure! This is the first Peet’s coffee we’ve ever tried and I can see why bloggers talk about it a lot! I don’t know if it’s better than Starbucks, but it sure is good either way and I like that it’s a tad cheaper. πŸ˜‰ Well good to know about the crackers! I feel like every time I turn around, I’m hearing about something else that’s unhealthy in normal food.

        1. We went grocery shopping today and had to buy a new bag of coffee. Starbucks was on sale to be cheaper than Peet’s so we got one of those instead. πŸ˜€ I hope it’s yummy! & I know, it’s so hard to eat when everyone says everything is bad LOL. I just stick to avoiding high fructose corn syrup, dairy, & MSG– everything else, I’ll eat.

          1. You can’t beat a good sale!! lol. I always love Starbucks too! The only time I’ve ever been disappointed in their ground coffee was once when we got decaf because I wanted to drink it without being kept up. It was kind of gross haha.
            I love that you have a plan for what is the most important to avoid in food products! I’m still trying to figure it out and there’s soooo much that’s “bad.” >.<

            1. I like the Starbucks coffee we got. πŸ˜€ It is pretty tasty! I don’t think I’ve ever tried any kind of decaf before but I was under the impression it would taste the same. Good to know it’s gross so I stay away from it haha.

              I know. There is always something new that’s bad everyday. I saw an article pop up about black pepper being unhealthy… ugh.

              1. I used to think decaf tasted that same also until I actually had it and then I realized it definitely does not lol. But I am a bit of a coffee snob, so maybe other people wouldn’t notice it as much.
                Oh my gosh, black pepper?! What next lol. Even being vegan couldn’t avoid all those things!

                Liked by 1 person

                1. LOL oh gosh, never trying decaf. I already thought it was such a weird thing! I hate to admit it but I think I’m a coffee snob, too, or just a foodie snob altogether. πŸ˜› and YES! It was about black pepper, what the heck, right?! I read like the first paragraph and was like NOPE, I need black pepper in my life and cannot scare myself away from it hahaha.

  2. Oh my gosh, you’re like me with the peppers. lol I love Mezzetta brand. I always eat their pepperoncini’s and jalapenos right out of the jar. Yum.

    For some reason, I didn’t realize you vaped. Or maybe you mentioned it before and I just forgot? I vape too! I bought my first vape a little over 3 years ago. I just got a new one for Christmas and it’s awesome. I’ve never used the cartridges or pods or anything though. I have a box mod with a tank on it, so I just buy the ejuice and put it into the tank. I just recently discovered Vape Wild, and I love their juices. I’m going to buy more from them soon.

    1. We saw hot banana peppers and are going to try them next! People think I am crazy when I tell them I like to eat these hot chili peppers plain LOL. I love that you do it, too. πŸ˜€

      Oh no, no. My vape pen is filled with THC wax/oil not ejuice lol. πŸ˜› Just another way to smoke weed!! I usually don’t even use these but a client bought a ton for me so I’ll be smoking them for awhile.

      Liked by 1 person

      1. I used to eat the hot banana peppers too! Although it’s been a while because I just prefer the flavor of jalapenos. πŸ˜›

        Oooh, gotcha. Yeah, we don’t have any of those here since weed isn’t legal here. 😦 I would love to try vaping THC. I found some THC ejuice online before and tried to buy it, but they wouldn’t ship to me since I’m not in a legalized state. Worth a try though, LOL.

        1. Are the hot banana peppers spicy?? Or just sour?! I changed what I wrote under the oil so it wouldn’t be confusing now lol. πŸ™‚ I wish it could just be legal in every state. It’s such a shame that it’s not! I am giggling about you trying to buy it anyways hehe.

          Liked by 1 person

          1. I find banana peppers to be more on the sour side. However, there are regular banana peppers and then the hot banana peppers. I like the hot better because they’re a mix of sour and spicy, instead of just sour.

  3. I love those Nature Valley Bars. When I was in college I would semi-crush up half and put it in my yogurt (it was like my granola)!
    Also, I had no idea croutons had dairy! Maybe that’s dumb, but I thought it was just toasted bread that was seasoned into those little crunchy, salty, bready bites for salad…noms!

    Liked by 1 person

    1. Ohh that’s such a good idea!! I think I have one or two more bars left & a vanilla almondmilk yogurt in the fridge I may just have to crush one atop. πŸ™‚

      I was so confused that all the croutons have dairy in them, too!! I didn’t expect that at all!

  4. The packaging on the gold spun lip balm is sooo pretty!!! It almost looks like a Tory Burch logo! That R + Co High dive sounds absolutely luxurious—Their products are pricy for the quality, but it’s good to know this actually works! I need that cuticle cream so badly it’s not even funny, hahah. I think I’d scare you away with my nails! I love eating peppers like pickles!! There is this one brand called β€œcowboy candy”…. Girl…… they are addictiveee. I’ll see if I can find a link.. you would love them ! Ugh I did find it but it’s not available.. https://www.amazon.com/WHH-Ranch-Cowboy-Candy-Jalapenos/dp/B00GEC0LPC . It’s sooo sweet & spicy & just delicious!

    All these snacks are making me hun-gah-reeeyyy.

    Dang that song from Star is amazing- what talent!! Thanks for sharing these currentlys πŸ™‚ xo

    1. I know!!! I can’t seem to throw away the box because it’s just so cute. ❀ I am so bad with designers but I just looked up Tony Burch and whoa, you're right! Their logos are quite similar. I agree that R+Co is really expensive & their full sizes aren't even that big! I found the cuticle cream at Ross for just $4!! It's always a gamble getting stuff from there but it actually works so well. I would not be scared away by your nails, I promise!! I would just offer you some of this cream LOL.

      I am SO intrigued by this cowboy candy. I cannot believe you would send me a link to it & it's not even available LOL I WANT IT!!

      So happy you liked the song from Star!! I can't stop singing it lol. ❀

  5. Well that’s disappointing to hear about that tatcha product lol. I wonder how expensive it is.
    That’s great that you finally found a haircare product that you liked in one of your boxes 😁 I feel the same way when I find something good lol.
    I didn’t know earth therapeutics had a nail and cuticle cream. I use their complexion brush when I wash my face and I love it and always wondered what else they sell but never looked into it lol. Good to know. My nails are kind of a mess right now. I blame the fake nails I was wearing over the holidays but I can only blame myself for wearing them too long πŸ˜–
    I LOVE Ritz!! I do need find those too because I try not to buy or eat stuff with high fructose corn syrup as well.
    Sorry you weren’t able to finish that book on time! If it makes you feel any better I’ve barely read since the year started so there’s no chance in hell I’ll be completing my 52 books a year this year lol.

    1. I think that Tatcha lip balm is $30!! It’s not good at all. Carmex is way better lol. πŸ˜› I still don’t want more hair products but I AM happy that I actually like one!

      I had never heard of Earth Therapeutics before! It seems like such a nice brand. πŸ™‚ If you look at Ross, you could prob find this cuticle cream & it’ll fix your nails right up!

      I looove Ritz, too but, these taste just the same & yeah no HFCS!! πŸ˜€

      I am 3 books behind on my challenge right now!! BUT I still think I can do it!! & you can still reach yours, too!!

      1. Whoa! Too much for a freaking balm!! I’d rather go for the fresh Rose lip balm, those go for like $12 which is still a bit pricey for a balm, but still. I’d take that one over Tatcha any day..then again…not CF 😦
        Yeah my nails suck 😦 they’re like breaking up in layers and it doesn’t help that I’m constantly washing my hands 😦 I think that’s also some vitamin deficiency too idk, I’ll have to look into it again because it’s happened before.. it’s literally many factors
        not a chance, still haven’t finished my first book of the year LMAO

        Liked by 1 person

        1. Yeah… seriously! $30 is absolutely ridiculous. Especially for something that doesn’t even work. I’ve always wanted to try one of those Fresh Rose lip balms, too! $12 isn’t so bad but, dang. Too bad they aren’t cruelty-free!! They really seem like a brand that would be, don’t they?!

          Ahhh… okay, if that’s what’s wrong that you could take some vitamins and ALSO, try ORLY’s Nail Protein. It’s a clear gel that you apply like polish that will make your nails so much stronger in no time.

          I am 4 books behind so yeah I guess I have to admit that maybe neither of us will make our goal this year LOL. Oh well.
