My May 2019 Currentlys…

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.

    1. It’s such a fun color, I don’t wanna change it even though it’s time! 😦 I don’t know why, I’ve always been obsessed with changing my theme & stuff on my phone– that’s why I’ve always hated iPhones lol. & YES, boiled eggs are the best snack!

  1. I wonder if I could find that nail polish somewhere to purchase for myself! Seriously in love and I never paint my nails so that says a lot, lol.
    Do those hard boiled eggs peel easily? If so, I’d love to know your boyfriend’s secret! I hard boil eggs a lot but they are always a struggle to peel. >.>
    Okay so I’ve never even heard of honey mangoes let alone ever tried them?! How are they different from regular mangoes? Or are they not? Are they the same? Clearly I’m ignorant in this matter lol!
    Also I love that your cat’s face in that palette mirror reflection! Too stinkin’ cute! ❀

    1. You can buy the nail polish on the Ipsy Shopper. You don’t even need to be a subscriber. πŸ™‚

      Hmm, the hard boiled eggs were pretty easy to peel. I think the only reason why is because we put them in the fridge, maybe?

      Regular mangoes are the called “red mangoes” right? Those are usually green with shadings of red and they’re bigger and the meat is tough, dry, almost crispy, less sweet, less flavorful– sometimes sour. You can eat those when they are green. The honey mangoes are green when they aren’t ready to be eaten and then they start turning bright yellow. When they’re still green, they are scary sour but once they are super yellow, they become sweet as can be. The meat is so soft and slippery. & honestly, I think they just started selling the honey mangoes in the American grocery stores in the past few years. We used to have to go to the Asian markets to get them when I was little.

      LOL my cats are so annoying when I try take photos of my sub box stuff.

      1. Ohh that’s great to know, thank you for sharing!! I will have to take a look at Ipsy Shopper for the polish, then. πŸ˜‰

        Lol I always refrigerate mine so I don’t think that’s it. I don’t know why they can be such a struggle to peel sometimes!

        Oh that makes sense! Wow look at you, you know so much about mangoes! I may have to pick up a red one and a honey one to see the difference myself. πŸ˜‰

        1. I am sure the polish is on Amazon, too, LOL. Most things are, aren’t they?!

          I crack the egg like all around and then scrape off the shell, it’s usually pretty quick & easy but, soooometimes, I peel off a lot of the white part LOL.

          I hope you like the honey mango if you try it!!!! ❀ they are the best.

          1. That’s true, lol!! Almost everything is on Amazon. In fact, for our wedding, we bought most things on Amazon since our city is small enough to not really have many specialty items, haha.

  2. I think that Wander Beauty palette is so pretty! I’m glad you like it πŸ™‚ I actually didn’t get that one in my Boxy! And The Act makes me so sad every time I see it advertised 😭 I want to watch the Dr. Phil episode where he interviewed Gypsy.

    1. Did you get Luxe that month of the Wander Beauty palette? I can’t believe I was talking so much crap about it lol it is so pretty. πŸ™‚

      1. It wasn’t when I last looked but that was a couple of weeks ago so it might be! I heard there’s a rumor she’s going to write an autobiography…I would definitely read it even though it would traumatize me 😭
        And yes, I think that’s the month I got luxe! I remember your first post that you weren’t real impressed πŸ˜‚ Just goes to show you gotta give everything a chance!

        1. That’s weird the Dr. Phil episode with her isn’t on YouTube! & gosh. She actually really scares me. I want to read her autobiography, if she writes one, but at the same time I don’t. 😭

  3. Finding the right coffee is important! It’s one of those things that makes life worth living. Also, I used to drink a lot of soda, but now I can’t stand it; I hate how you can almost feel the high fructose corn syrup as you drink it.

    1. IT TRULY IS. Boyfriend always tells me I am obsessed with coffee but, I am so glad to have met you. You make me feel less crazy since you love it just as much. πŸ˜€

      & I AGREE. You can totally feel the high fructose corn syrup. I am really liking these cane sugar sodas though even though they prob aren’t that much better for ya. πŸ˜›

      1. Haha coffee’s a fun thing to obsess over, because there’s so much variety in the flavors of different roasts and so many ways to make it…there’s literally always something new to learn about coffee! In fact, I’m thinking of applying to part-time barista jobs just so I can learn more about coffee πŸ˜›

        The cane sugar sodas probably aren’t terribly healthy either, but at least they taste better than traditional sodas!

          1. Yep! The hipsters, God bless them, are always coming up with new and creative ways to brew coffee. Where would we be without hipsters?

            Being a barista probably would be fun, but it’s be a steep learning curve! Making coffee for yourself is one thing, but making it for hordes of angry people who are all late for work would be something quite different. Then there’s the “barista effect:” I don’t know if I could handle everyone falling in love with me…cause you know they would.

            1. LOL not far at all! The hipsters have invented a whole new world. Not even just in coffee. But in beer, in food, in design, fashion, online shopping & MORE. It’s nuts…

              I’ve never heard of the barista effect, that’s hilarious! I’ve actually never really liked any one mine… but, you’re right. I wouldn’t want to make coffee for angry, impatient people.

  5. That law nail polish is amazing! Never heard of the brand before πŸ€”
    Omg u have tmobile one too??
    I was so shocked to hear that i would finally get Netflix for free omg i been using my husband’s families account, and i also set it up on my moms TV too so i felt my husband’s mom was getting pissed everytime the spanish subs would come on. For some reason when my mom put Spanish subs, it might come on in someones profile, not just our profile.
    I love tmobile for that service tbh
    I really wanna watch good girls and the act!
    I saw documentaries on gypsy and i was stunned it was def something out of the movies. I still cant believe shes in jail i just think she should be at a doctor’s for all those years of trauma. If the mom were alive she would have been in jail. I just feel bad for the girl πŸ˜ͺ

    I adore those annies cookies!! I only got them cuz they were on sale at Marshall’s lol i alwas feel bad for buying something expensive when theres not too much products, but its a good product so i understand why its not super cheap.

    Lastly, i love ur phone and how u keep cha ging the themes. Ever since u explained how u do it, ive been changing mine too lol i literally check the Samsung themese every week to see if any of my favs became free πŸ˜‚

    1. It was my first time hearing of the nail polish’s brand, too. I would definitely buy more shades from them though! πŸ™‚ & YESS, I love that T-Mobile pays for Netflix!! It’s the best perk of being with them LOL. I have subtitles set up, too. I think it is just a settings option that gets saved to profiles. But yay, now your husband’s mom won’t get pissed anymore! πŸ˜€

      Good Girls & The Act are both so addicting. Totally watch them if you get the chance! I feel bad for Gypsy’s boyfriend more though, at least she will be out of prison eventually. I only watched the show though, none of the real life stuff. She should have just ran away, not KILLED her but I get it, she was definitely traumatized from her abusive childhood.

      Those cookies are a bit expensive, aren’t they?? I barely notice anymore because most dairy-free things have the same price tag. It sucks!

      Isn’t it so fun changing your theme? LOL I am obsessed with it. πŸ˜€

      1. Ooh, I wasn’t really aware of the bf from what I saw in the news. It’s kinda messed up she made him do it but i mean they were kids, they were just trying to get away from the mom thats what i think. Yeah what happened, happened lol it would have been better to just tell people and not kill her i agree.

        Yes i hope that the california store grocery outlet comes to other cities because somehow they can sell that brand for $1 sometimes!
        and yes i love being able to change my theme!! it’s why i loved myspace so much lol

        1. Well I think they are both crazy for being able to commit a murder but, yeah… he has a disorder & she was abused. I don’t think they should have killed her but I also don’t think EITHER of the two deserve life in prison… I gotta look up some of the info of the real story though.

          OOH, wow. I hope that we can get one of those outlet groceries, too. $1 for that brand is SO good. I used to LOVE changing my theme on MySpace, too. I think I changed it even more than my phone one now lol.

  6. Ohhhhh you know that nail color is catching my eye!! So fun, pretty & perfect for spring! Anything that dries fast is a huge plus in my book! I’m not patient enough to let it dry haha. That’s soo interesting The Village is basically the same as A Million Little Things?! How odd that they would air at the same time too. That’s hilarious about Kelsey- I don’t have internet right now (on an airplane, lol).. but when I do I’ll have to watch her video. I bet you’d do great with the challenge! Oh my gosh, those hard boiled eggs look sooo good to me right now. I might have to make some when I get home- mmm mmm. I’ll tell ya what- between your description and the packaging of the Java chip Minis saying β€œBakery Fresh Cookies” I am sold. I think I might be hungry haha. Thanks for sharing, girl!

    1. I loooove that nail color, too. I just took it off & already want to put it back on LOL. & I am with you!! It seems like some nail polishes even pretend they’re dry but I SOMEHOW always ruin them!!

      The Village is not like A Million Little Things really BUT, there are multiple story lines including a group of friends/neighbors & there’s one about cancer & she doesn’t want to do the chemo the exact same way Maggie didn’t want to. Everything else is completely different though. & yeah it was odd to me, too, kind of like they were copying…

      LOL let me know if you like those 100 Baby Challenge videos. Kelsey is SO funny, you’ll love her!! (I hope you landed safely. ❀ )

      I tried another kind of cookie from the same brand & it wasn't so good. They tasted like raisins LOL but I HIGHLY recommend these java chip ones still… I am full & still want them hehe.

        I will for sure!! (and we did land- even though the flight had a teensy bit of turbulence).

        mmm mmmm!!! I am dreamin’ of them. Going to get my nightly ice cream cone now because the thought of those cookies is making my mouth water!

    The wander beauty palette really is gorgeous. I thought Havana nights would look super dark on me but it was surprisingly good and I can build up the color if I wanted.
    Girl I need to read but no time! I feel like I’m working on so many things lol.
    I’m searching for a great candle or maybe I’ll just buy some incense. That pineapple one looks so adorable!
    I love my galaxy phone for the simply reason that I get to customize the wallpaper and icons. Yours look cute I havent changed mine since I got this new phone I think it’s time but dont know what theme I’d want lol. Maybe floral? Spring? Lol
    Ah I love mangoes. They’re so delicious and I think the smoothies with mango were delish so I might try that again lol. Maybe come up with a new recipe haha
    And I love hard boiled eggs so yummy! I eat them with Mexican red rice, on top of salad and more! So many ways to eat it. I cant believe I always forget about using them as a healthy snack lol

      I haven't finished a book in so long. Whenever I want to & have time to read, I rather read blogs!

      Incense usually smell way too strong for me so I don't mind a subtle candle. I like the ones from Walmart (Mainstays) the best, to be honest lol.

      I KNOW!! Galaxies are so superior to iPhones with all the customization options!! & you can always pick a floral one for now & change it whenever you feel bored. I change mine at least twice (usually more) times a month lol.

      Mangoes are the beeest. ❀ I would love to try a mango smoothie!! Do you like those mangonada frozen drinks?!

      YESS, I love the hardboiled eggs on a salad but, I can't leave them in the fridge long enough to use them for that LOL.

      Those mini choco chip cookies are so yummy and cute πŸ™‚ I hope you like them!
