My June 2019 Currentlys…

CURRENTLY IN BEAUTY

On a fresh face, I have been enjoying these Stress Relieving Purefull Cleansing Tissues by Ariul. They make me feel hydrated and clean. I don’t particularly like them for removing makeup though.

The Il Makiage Icon Volume & Intense Curl Mascara has been working pretty well for me. It came in my Ipsy Plus just when I needed it.

The more I use the Popu House Shaped Sponges from my April NoMakeNoLife Box, the more I like them. They blend my makeup in quickly and evenly. I also like the shape– it’s easy to get around all the crevices with the pointy tip and the sponge itself is soft and bouncy.

On my nails, I’m wearing ORLY Breathable Treatment + Color in Fresh Start. The Sally Hansen Care 7-in-1 Nail Treatment was used as my base coat.

CURRENTLY IN ENTERTAINMENT

All of my other shows have concluded and I’m only waiting for one more episode of Paradise Hotel. I can’t believe they were canceled before the season was even supposed to be over. I think they really shortened things up to get it off TV ASAP. This Thursday is the finale.

I had been waiting about a year for Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman to be checked out to me. A few days ago, I finally got the e-mail that it was mine. I haven’t started it yet but, my expectations are high. Every review I’ve read on it has been a raving one.

I have been addicted to watching the Cut channel on YouTube. It is SO good. Boyfriend and I have the most fun playing along with the Lineups and the Truth or Drink ones are hilarious, too.

If you want to see the cutest reaction to a new baby brother, you need to watch Ethan. I have him on replay, it melts my heart how happy and excited he is!! ❀

Machine Gun Kelly’s new album Hotel Diablo should be coming out anytime now. Hollywood Whore is one of the first songs he released from it. Of course I love it and have listened to it at least once a day since it came out.

CURRENTLY IN LIFESTYLE

Walmart’s Mainstays candles have got to be my favorite. They give off such a nice amount of scent and they’re uber cheap. They don’t last that long though. I’ll be sad when this Purple Sands one runs out– it’s soft, sweet and dreamy.

I’m using Signature Care’s Sensitive Wipes from Albertsons for the first time and they’re not bad at all.

Dove products have officially been certified cruelty-free by PETA but, for one legit reason Cruelty-Free Kitty has kept them in the grey area for now. My armpits are NOT getting along with the natural deodorants so I had to give this Advanced Care Stick a try. There is no scent name but, going by the picture, I’m guessing it should be Pomegranate. It makes me smell nice, fruity, and womanly but, it doesn’t keep me that way throughout the entire night. I’m starting to think nothing is strong enough to. πŸ˜›

I am smoking Paris by House of Herbs. It smells so dang delicious before and after it’s lit. Mmm, mmm.

I have the cutest summery wallpaper on my phone at the moment. It’s called momo beach by minkyung Kim and my icons are by Goma. They’re named Goma Picnic.

CURRENTLY IN FOOD & DRINKS

I downloaded a digital coupon for $5 off any Kicking Horse coffee bag from Sprouts. I had never tried the brand before but, the deal could not be passed up. We chose the Kick Ass Dark Ground Coffee, and you guys, this stuff is TASTY. We will be buying another bag, for sure.

Tejava teas, especially the Hojicha Green Tea, are the best bottled teas around. We went through about 6 of them in one month.

Most of the snacks/treats I’ve recently tried have been misses but, you can never go wrong with a bar of Chocolove. It’s the only “food” item I have to share this month! The Almonds & Sea Salt in Dark Chocolate is so satisfying.

  1. That nail color looks so pretty. I’m a sucker for those kind of colors. I never tried the dove deodorant, I love their body washes though. Now I’m jealous of the chocolate, I’ve been craving something sweet all day and we don’t have anything. We have to go grocery shopping this week. πŸ™‚ ❀

    1. Thank you!! It’s one of my fave shades for the summertime. πŸ™‚ I love that Dove is making steps towards becoming cruelty-free. I love their body washes too! & I think I always have something sweet in the house because I get severe cravings often lol.

  2. Paradise Hotel looks interesting. I just finished AHS Cult and I loved it. I just started The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina on Netflix and it is AWESOME. Also, I used to use that same Dove deodorant and I loved it but I had to switch to a gel because I’ve stopped shaving my under arms so the solid doesn’t work as well.

    1. Paradise Hotel is super interesting to me but probably super fake & trashy to others. 😝 I love AHS & have been wanting to watch the Sabrina series. So good to hear you think it’s awesome. Maybe I need to try a gel deodorant! Are they stronger?

    1. Thank you!! It really is a nice color for this season but also winter, too. πŸ™‚ Chocolove seems to be at every drugstore & grocery store I go to. I know for sure you can find it at Target!

  3. Would love to read your thoughts on Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine once you’re done reading it! I’ve heard great things too, and I almost bought it at the bookstore this past weekend.

  4. I like to use those cleansing wipes for when I dont wear makeup. Either that or micellar water if I’m too lazy or tired to wash my face after a long day lol
    The nail polish is gorgeous! I really need go get a shade like that!
    We’ve talked about PH already so not gonna even try lmao
    Ok I almost have to wonder if people are hyping up that book but I guess I’ll have to wait for your review lol
    I didn’t know Dove was CF now, however, lately I’ve been seeing peoples comments because of the WnW drama, and a lot of people are so NOT on board with PETA.. I’ll have to see what CGK has to say about that.
    And lastly, I still havent changed my wallpaper on my phone I keep forgetting πŸ™„

    1. Yeah, they totally are nicer when you aren’t wiping your makeup with them. I also liked using them right before makeup application, it made me feel smoother & more hydrated.

      It’s about time to change to a different nail color now, I’m so lazy to do them though. 😦

      I just started the book yesterday. It’s not what I expected but I am enjoying it so far… review will be up soon, hopefully.

      There are so many different arguments against & for PETA. I have no idea what to believe anymore. I just read whatever Cruelty-Free Kitty says lol. She has Dove in the grey area for a pretty legit reason.

      I am obsessive about changing my wallpaper, I think. I get so bored looking at the same one!

      1. Ooh oh oh ohohh !!!! Did you ever get that makeup removing towel I told you about?? You NEED to get one! Life changing! LOL. It’s reusable too so you can wash it by hand or toss it in the washing machine. I love mine. I use my towel when I have a FULL face of makeup. Well, either that or my oil.
        Anyway, you were the one I talked to about that towel right? I apologize if it wasn’t you, but I swear it was? LOL
        Right? And I read up on Dove on CFK’s site, and they also mentioned Love, Beauty, Planet, so I really need to look into that brand too. It’s owned by the same company that owns Dove, so if Dove is not in the clear, I am dreading that LBP isn’t either! Even though the label says its CF. I’ll have to do more research so I know to not buy anymore stuff from that brand if it’s not CFK approved lol

        1. I still haven’t gotten one of those towels but it’s for sure on my list!! I NEED to try it– it totally sounds life changing & I was def the one you talked to about it before! ;D

          YEAH! I noticed that she mentioned something about Love, Beauty, Planet too. I was like, “oh my gosh so sheisty!” It’s so hard to truly know about products without reading on her site lol.

          1. Find it at Ulta. Hopefully they have them in-store. You could always call too! πŸ™‚ Seriously life changing girl, less wasteful than using makeup removing oil or other products LOL.
            Yeah I know,, it buggeed me so much because the packaging does say CF but she doesn’t list them so I was like nooo!! I really liked the body scrub I had gotten too. it works like a charm.

            1. Next time I go to Ulta, I will definitely be looking for that towel. πŸ˜€ It sounds life changing!!

              That’s so shady about LBP not actually being CF when the label says it is! That really makes me wonder about all of the other products I use!

  5. I hear soo many great things about Eleanor Oliphant is completely fine too- I can’t wait to hear your thoughts on it!

    AHHH I was going to put Chocolove in my next Friday favorites!! I LOVEEE their chocolate.

    Thanks for sharing so many awesome finds, girl. I always have so many great things to check out after your currentlys!

      1. I haven’t tried many … but I love the Almonds & Sea Salt in the strong dark chocolate. I haven’t tried in the regular dark chocolate, but I know i’d love that one too. Sea salt & dark chocolate anything I’m allll about!

  6. I really want to get into natural deodorant and I just can’t. I tried the Schmitt’s and it did nothing for me! Everyone says you have to get through the transition phase (going from regular deodorant to natural), but I can’t do it! I just can’t!

  7. Just added Eleanor Oliphant to my Goodreads! You’re right, all the reviews are so good! It sounds like a great book anyway, so I can’t wait to read it now. πŸ˜‰
    I do love Walmart’s candles! They seriously have some of the best scents. You’re right though, they don’t last long unfortunately.
    Ooh I’m going to try Secret’s aluminum-free deodorant next! I guess it’s new or something because I’ve seen it advertised everywhere. Here’s to hoping it actually works, lol!
    That coffee sounds SO good! The darker the roast, the better! We may have to try that next time. πŸ˜‰ Thanks for sharing, Hunida!

    1. You should add your name on the holds list if you plan to borrow it from Overdrive, I wasn’t even exaggerating about the year wait!

      Yeah, the Walmart candles burn fast but the scent they give off is perfectly subtle yet still fills the whole house. I love the Purple Sands so much!!

      Oooh interesting about Secret making an aluminum-free one. I don’t think they’re a cruelty-free brand though. Still, super interested to know how it works for you!!

      The coffee is really tasty, Courtney! I think you would love it, too! ❀

      1. I would plan to borrow it from Overdrive, but every time I add my name to a long hold list, they end up deleting my hold! It’s so frustrating and I don’t know if it’s my library or Overdrive but it’s almost useless to place a hold on an item with more than two people in the queue. I did that for “Girl Wash Your Face” and when I looked into my account, the hold was gone. >.>

        Ohh I didn’t know Secret wasn’t cruelty-free, darn! I might try it anyway, but that sucks!

        1. Whaaaat? That’s so weird & frustrating. I’d be so upset if that kept happening to me. Have you tried the Libby app? It’s the updated/newer version of Overdrive. Maybe that will let you keep holds!!

          Yeah, I mean… a lot of non cruelty-free stuff works way better so it makes sense that people haven’t completely quit buying it all. πŸ˜›

          1. I haven’t heard of that app! I will have to look it up for sure! I would love it if it keeps my holds lol! But I do wonder if it’s my library itself since I placed a physical hold for a Christmas movie back in December and it just disappeared after a few weeks. πŸ™„ hopefully the library in VA Beach is better!

  8. Wow that Il Makiage mascara looks so interesting!!!
    I recentlty got some makeup and am trying the big ego from Tarte, I freaking love it but it still doesn’t do much curling for my super straight lashes. Still on the hunt for the one for me so maybe this one is better.
    Also that orly nail polish looking great on ur skin tone!! I love colors like that. Also I didn’t realize Dove was unilever brand. I was aware about how bad unilever is but now I know I just shouldn’t buy anything from them. it’s hard cause they somehow make a lot of every day products/brands :/

    Anyways I’m loving your phones theme! Ever since I saw you post yours i realized i can do the same so thanks for letting me know about them! I have been changing mine every once in a while now ahh but it can be so hard cause not everything i like is free lol luckily they are always getting marked down πŸ™‚

    1. The Il Makiage mascara is really nice! I’ve been wearing it everyday & loving it more & more! I hope it works for you as well as it does for me. πŸ™‚

      I love that nail polish color, but I am so uneducated about which shades work best for my skintone!

      I think Dove is taking the right steps towards becoming cruelty-free but they are being a little shady at the same time. I hope they fix their mistakes!

      I only choose the free ones but I know what you mean! The cutest ones always cost $$$ lol.

  9. I usually find light nail colors awful on my fingers (maybe because of my yellow skin tone) but i like your washed out baby blue!!
    Oooo, please update on the eleanor oliphant book, I too have seen all the raving reviews and I wanna know what all that hype is about!
    YES I WATCH THE CUT CHANNEL TOO ITS PRETTY ENTERTAINING AND SUCH A GUILTY PLEASURE!
    Nice to see your June currents! If only I had access to em! Hmph!

    1. I know what you mean! I have a yellow undertone too & usually think light colors aren’t the best on me either. πŸ˜› I am glad you like the blue, I bet it would look nice on you as well!!

      I am hoping I can finish Eleanor on time but honestly, I’m only 20% through but I haven’t been able to understand the hype just yet..

      Oh my gosh, so fun that you watch the Cut channel, too! Isn’t it hilarious?! I think I watched all the Lineups now. Can’t wait for more lol.

      β™‘β™‘β™‘ wish I could give you access to all the things!!

        1. I don’t know if I’ll be able to finish reading it & I had to wait sooo many months to have it. 😦 I’m a bit disappointed in myself but maybe the book isn’t worth all the hype if I didn’t want to get through it?! I don’t know lol. & YESS!! I am the same when I watch Cut LOL.
