CURRENTLY IN BEAUTY
I was previously testing out a different body lotion that broke me out in eczema patches all over (Purlisse – Butter Me Orange Creamsicle Body Butter, I HATE YOU) so, I started using Feel Beauty’s Balanced Moisture Balancing Cream instead. The scent is almost offensive but, I can deal with it. It’s just not super hydrating and it leaves a bit of a tacky feel on my skin. I may toss it before I finish it, to be honest.
Again, I’m back to my fave mascara, Sephora’s Lashcraft Length + Volume in Noir. I am missing my IT Cosmetics – Superhero Mascara though. This one is no longer satisfying.
I am still rockin’ the Law Beauty Essentials Nail Polish I got in my mini Ipsy Glam Bag. It chips off kind of weird but, it dries fast, has long staying power, and it’s easy to touch-up.
I seriously can’t stop reaching for my Wander Beauty Dusk to Dawn Blush & Highlight Palette! When I received this in a past Boxycharm, I talked SO much crap before even trying it. It’s not the most difficult thing in the world to use at all, the pan shapes are just fine. I LOVE how each shade looks on my cheeks separately but, they also complement each other extremely well.
CURRENTLY IN ENTERTAINMENT
I am only watching shows that are airing episode by episode on Hulu at the moment. Luckily, my cell phone company pays for my Netflix subscription or it’d be going to waste!
The only show I didn’t share with you last month is The Village. There’s a story line in it that’s exactly the same as one in A Million Little Things but, I didn’t let that bother me for too long. All of the characters are so lovable and unique. I could watch them for hours even if I cry every two seconds (and that might be the exact reason why).
Still keeping up with Good Girls and still loving it.
I’m an episode behind on The Act at the moment (please, don’t mention any spoilers!) but, definitely watching it until the end. I am hooked and impatiently waiting to see what happens!
Star is finally back in every episode and coming up with the craziest ideas again. Lottie has also returned and just in time, too, because I was losing interest without them!
With Star’s return to the show, we finally got another solo song called Davis Street. ❤ My throat contracts and my eyes well up just hearing her voice, oh my gosh.
I know that the one thing about Hulu that drives people mad are the ads but, for me, I don’t mind them. ESPECIALLY NOT when it’s this Charmin one. It is the most adorable 30 seconds, ever. I could replay it 1000 times.
I’m usually not on YouTube unless I’m watching music/lyric videos but lately, I can’t stop watching Kelsey Impicciche of BuzzFeed Multiplayer doing the 100 Baby Challenge on Sims 4. Claire mentioned it to me once so I had to look it up for myself! Kelsey is SO freakin’ funny and I am addicted to her personality almost as much as I am to watching her play my favorite game. I almost want to try the challenge myself now!
I started watching her after I downloaded the Get Famous Expansion Pack and a few other Stuff Packs. Most of my free time has been spent in my Sims 4 world ever since.
I’ve also been enjoying this Bus Simulator 17 game on my phone. You get to win and drive all kinds of different buses to pick people up in and you even have to stop at stoplights. It’s pretty fun and mindless– challenging but, not frustratingly so.
After reading Norrie’s 10 Books To Read On Rainy Days post, I immediately checked out A Tap On The Window by Linwood Barclay. I’m only 15% through but, my mind is now constantly thinking “I can’t wait to read tonight.” I’m glad I finally ditched the book I was slumped on before.
CURRENTLY IN LIFESTYLE
I had to start this section with my new candle I received from my Marianella Pamper Me Box. I rarely like a musky scent but, this one was done just right and I mean, come on… look at the pineapple top! I’ve been lighting it everyday since I opened it.
I looked at my Currentlys post from last month and giggled because I am once again smoking Lavender Jones by Flora Vega. It’s common for our dispensary to carry this strain and I really enjoy it so, we have it quite often. Our other jar is filled with Garlic Cookies by Nature’s Chemistry– super smooth and highly effective.
I’m onto a new THC cartridge. This time, I’m smoking a hybrid, GG4 by Brass Knuckles. It only made sense to connect it to my matching Brass Knuckles battery.
My phone went through a huge update and everything looks completely different so, I took the theme off to get used to it. I still changed my wallpaper to Spring Flowers by SIDIA and my icons to Cute Cat 04 by Changsha Wuli.
CURRENTLY IN FOOD & DRINKS
I had to toss my Sprouts brand coffee because it wasn’t hyping me up at all. I chose Boyd’s French No. 6 Ground Coffee to try this time and I really liked it. It was smooth, dark, and extremely energizing.
I NEVER drink soda, mainly because high fructose corn syrup is the worst for you AND it makes my mouth/saliva sticky. Sometimes, I need a sweet, carbonated beverage though! Hansen’s Natural Cane Soda is made with no artificial sweeteners or ingredients and they have so many fun flavors. The Cherry Lime was even better than the Cherry Limeade from Sonic!!
No one is happier than I am about it officially being HONEY MANGO SEASON!! I buy about four or five every time we hit the grocery store since they’ve been out. I can eat about three in one sitting… probably more.
Boyfriend hard boiled half a dozen eggs for me and then put them in the fridge. They make the best snack and are so filling. I just pull one out, peel it, and crack some black pepper and pink salt on it. Yum, yum, YUMMY!
If you like the blue bag of Chips Ahoy! but are dairy-free like me, I’ve found just the replacement for you. Annie’s Chocolate Chip Cookie Bites taste even better and they don’t stale as fast the Back to Nature Mini Chocolate Chunk cookies I’ve talked about before.
BUT, if you’re more into soft and chewy cookies… Divvies Java Chip Minis are what you NEED. I’ve NEVER had a better completely VEGAN (and nut-free?!) cookie. There was a gentle coffee taste that wasn’t too overpowering with a hint of chocolate and oh my gosh, that texture. SOOO soft and chewy that it must be mentioned twice.
If you love to eat nuts as a snack, you know how expensive that habit can become. When I saw BobbySue’s Everything Goes Nuts mini tubs on sale, of course, I couldn’t miss out. It was a mix of all the best: almonds, pecans, and cashews. I can’t even describe the Everything glaze, it was just too spectacular for words. I would (and will) buy this again, even at full price.
Summer is here and we all need to stay cool with some kind of fruit ice, right? Solero got me with their “Crushed Fruit” description and has won me over with their fresh tasting pops!! The Lemon Lime was SO good and REAL.
