Hey guys πŸ™‚ last time I wrote was Thursday, July 18th so we’ll catch up from Friday, July 19th.

For dinner, boyfriend made us a smoked sausage sheet pan and some baked beans. I spent my entire day watching episodes of Big Brother and Love Island.

On Saturday, July 20th, I was ready to go back to work. Boyfriend made delicious curry chicken drumsticks with broccoli and some Uncle Ben’s rice. Both the sausage and chicken rub were his own recipe and they turned out SO good. I was highly impressed.

I painted my nails and watched Love Island UK before getting ready and going to work.

Work was alright until I ended up getting the biggest headache. I was hoping to stay a bit longer but, I just couldn’t handle all the smoke and smells anymore. I left earlier than 4 AM.

On Sunday, July 21st, I woke up with the same headache! Luckily, it disappeared after taking a Breathe-X pill and smoking a blunt. I think it was congestion from allergies or something?

When it was time to eat we went to the Hibachi Supreme Buffet and made our own noodle stir-fries. The Fluff Ice shop was nearby and I was hoping to save some room in my belly for a cup of it but, I overate, as usual. πŸ˜› We did stop at Starbucks for some iced espresso shots though!

I was also looking for some clear 3-in-1 (top & base coat + strengthening) nail polish but, annoyingly, couldn’t find anything at Ross nor Sally’s so, we went to CVS. It was so much fun in there! I found the nail polish I was looking for right away and then, I saw K-Beauty GALORE! JOAH had products on sale (buy one, get one 50% off) and I was looking for a new concealer anyyyways sooo, I bought two different ones by them. I’ll show you guys the one I’m using now and the nail polish in my upcoming Currentlys post! I picked up some new nail polish remover, too.

I watched more Love Island and Big Brother for the rest of my Sunday night.

Yesterday, I woke up around noon and I felt so refreshed without the pain in my brain. πŸ˜€ We were in the mood for burgers and you knoooow, nowhere does them better than Bar Code so that’s where we went!

I got the plain Americana with onion strings, tomato, pickles, lettuce, ketchup, and mustard. This is probably the 15th time I’ve talked about this place and their food so, I’ll keep my raving to a minimum!

Boyfriend had their restaurant-named Bar Code Burger. It was topped with arugula, onion jam, bacon aioli, pickled red onion peppers, and bleu cheese butter. He said the bacon aioli was way too salty!

The same aioli was spread under our Deviled Eggs appetizer. I didn’t really let it touch my egg too much so I didn’t taste it but, boyfriend said it was also way too salty in this dish. The eggs themselves weren’t my favorite, either, the yolk filling was too sour and too much.

When we came home, I wrote up my book review on Lies She Told and my Influenster unboxing. I did a new makeup look for work with my HUDA Mauve Obsessions Palette, it turned out super pretty and subtle. I’m probably going to try one more look with the palette before putting together a Makeup Looks post for it– I can’t wait!

While I was getting ready, I asked boyfriend to go and buy me a bottle of Patron. He made me a strong drink before dropping me off and I had one other one later in the night. I stayed at a nice level of drunk and thankfully, I didn’t wake up with any “beer fear” (as my friend Jennie calls it, hehe). I wasn’t as busy as I’d hoped to be but, I can’t complain about what I got!

When boyfriend picked me up, we stopped at 7-Eleven for some cigarettes. I went inside with him when usually, I stay in the car. The cashier recognized boyfriend and was like, “I didn’t know you had a girl, you always comin’ in here alone” lol. I told him, “I always wait in the car, I’m a lazy bitch” and he laughed, asked if we needed White Owls along with the Marlboro Reds but, we told him we were set to smoke for the night. All low-eyed, he smirks and says, “I’ve been hitting my pen, getting blazed all night.” I told him, “I prefer blunts because pens always make my throat tickly dry.” He, then, wanted to prove HIS pen was (somehow) different so, he brought us outside, right in front of the gas station and smoked us up with his pen that, for the record, DID make my throat hella dry!! LOL. Boyfriend smoked a cigarette with him and then we headed out to get some breakfast from McDonald’s. I got a hashbrown and a sausage McMuffin with no cheese or egg. πŸ™‚ We came home and ate, then, I took a shower and we smoked a blunt in bed before falling fast asleep.

Today, I woke up around 1 PM and took a shower right away. I looked up some recipes while we smoked a blunt. After finding three simple ones, we went to Sprouts to buy our ingredients.

There was this guy giving samples of vegan bacon chips that were made out of mushrooms. I tried one and the aftertaste was terrible but, I didn’t have the heart to tell him when he kept askin’, “delicious, isn’t it?!” He was so enthusiastic about the product… I just nodded and walked away…

When we finished shopping, we came home and boyfriend made us yummy sandwiches with seafood and egg salad on the side.

I also had some Garlic Herb Triscuits and Tomato Basil Wheat Thins. πŸ˜‰ We watched Love Island US while we ate.

When we finished eating, we went to the dispensary, Starbucks, the smoke shop, and Albertsons (for TP). We came home, smoked a blunt, and continued watching the Love Island US episode while I put a clear coat on top of my nails.

Now, we’re all caught up to the present!! πŸ™‚ Tomorrow, I’ll be showing you my Ipsy Glam Bag from both June and July. I’m gonna go tidy that post up as much as I can right now and then, get ready for work again.

Hope you’ve all had a great start to your week!! ❀

    1. Thank you, Nunzia!! One of my nails broke & I had to clip them all down today. I am devastated. 😦 The hamburger & fries were SO good! Hope you get to curb your craving soon!

  1. Just when I was craving some drumsticks, I see that picture and I’m craving it all over again! Plus, I need to step it up and actually paint my nails! Not sure why, but I just dread painting my own because I suck at it, and because it seems to take me forever!! You always seem to have such pretty colors that look fantastic on you!

    1. Those drumsticks turned out so good! I hope you have gotten to curb your craving for them. πŸ™‚ Painting your own nails is a seriously hard task & it DOES take forever so I totally get why you dread it. I just remind myself it’s better than the hours & hours at the salon I used to spend lol. Thank you so much, Stephanie!!

  2. I still havent started the second of love island. I’m not in the mood for it lol.
    The noodle stir fry looks πŸ‘ŒπŸΌ I want some!!! The burgers look good too! And who cares if you’ve talked about this burger place a lot. I’m the same way Haha. I cannot get enough of my favorite japanese restaurant lol.
    Omg that’s hilarious that he knows the guy at 711. Cause WE know a guy at 711 too and hes hilarious! I’ve joked with him that “hes seen me in all my forms” 🀣🀣🀣 I have walked in with a full face of makeup and nicely dressed, to very casual, and no makeup and like I dont care lol.
    Lol speaking of bacon chips, theres a recipe to make bacon but with tofu I think? And apparently it gets pretty close? Theres also another recipe but with mushrooms too. I wonder if that would be different than those chips you tried or the same

    1. Love Island is totally something you need to be in the mood for, I get that!

      Have you been to a place where you pick all your veggies, meats, and noodles & then they stir fry it on top of a big circle grill in front of you? I think you’d love it if you haven’t yet!! Lol I’m glad you are not sick of seeing those same Barcode Burgers over & over again, I really can’t get enough of them!

      That’s SO true about the guys who work at the gas station. They do get to see us in all forms because I go in there in pajamas most often but sometimes, I’m all dressed up for work LOL. Too funny that you talk with your cashier, too!!!

      Whaaaat? That’s so interesting about the bacon tofu. I’d love to give it a try! The bacon chips tasted good at first crunch but left the weird aftertaste… I wonder if it was because of the mushroom?!

      1. I think I haven’t been in the mood because I literally have so many shows I’m watching which is super weird of me because I NEVER do that! Lol.
        Arent those places called hot pots or something? If so, no, not yet because idk how CL might handle having something like that right in front of us it would take a lot of explaining and hopefully a lot of understanding from his end for us to go lol. I would also need to look at the menu prior to going to know that he will eat something lol.
        Were not so different you and I 🀣
        It might be the mushroom but I cannot know for sure. Lol.

        1. No the hot pots are different lol I am not explaining very well so I will not try anymore lol. I always forget that you need to be picky about where you go out to eat because of CL, I’m sorry! 😦

          We are very similar in so many ways, aren’t we?! ❀

          If the mushroom is the reason for the bitter after taste, I will not trust anything that is mushroom-based from now on. I do love mushrooms plain though. πŸ˜›

          1. Oh are they? I’ll have to look it up because I thought it was the same, then again I’ve never been to either one so thats why I dont know difference 🀣🀣
            Lololololol maybe its another ingredient? Did I already say that? Lol I’m so bad at keeping up with my comments I’m so sorry haha plain mushrooms do taste good too

  3. I love burger places, even though I’m a basic plain bitch πŸ˜‚ I’m glad you woke up feeling more refreshed! And your nails look pretty, I haven’t done mine in forever.

    Your conversation with the cashier made me laugh. C is big into Game’s (it’s more of a natural leaf), we don’t really get the White Owls ever. When I worked at Sheetz so many people would buy them.

    I prefer blunts over vape pens any day. We did the vape thing for awhile, but it’s just a different high and it doesn’t feel as good to me. And the cartridges can burn and make the taste weird. It definitely makes your throat dryer!

    1. Burger places are perfect for you since you like plain food!! Even with just the patty & bread, it’s YUMMY!! πŸ˜€

      Waking up the day after a headache is def so refreshing. & thank you about my nails, I just had to clip them down because one broke. 😦

      I had never heard of Game’s, we’ll have to check them out next time! We tried some natural papers & ones that didn’t even have tobacco in them, made to roll blunts with, but boyfriend said they’re too hard to roll so we stick to White Owls!

      I agree about vape pens! They don’t feel as good to me either & they do taste weird sometimes. I especially hate the extra dry throat though!! Blunts all day, am I right?! ;D

      1. That is true! They’re yummy and always filling πŸ˜‚ plus there’s bound to be a good amount of chips or fries to satisfy you if the burger isn’t enough.

        And that sucks about your nails, I hate when that happens.

        And I gotcha! C says they are different to roll, but for him they’re easier. Plus they just feel better lol. The same company makes Dutch Masters.

        I definitely agree with that. I’d rather smoke a blunt everyday, any day πŸ˜‚ plus the high is just better

        1. You’re right LOL there are always fries to tide you over. πŸ™‚ & seriously, broken nails are the worst.

          I haven’t heard of Dutch Masters either! But yes yes yes agrreeeedd!! ;D

  4. Mmm that curry chicken! YES! Ooo, the idea of using arugula instead of lettuce in a burger is game-changing to me wow! I thought the patty looked a little grey but it turned out so good! HAHAHA THE CASHIER WAS HELL BENT IN PROVING YOU WRONG HAHA but too bad he failed! That’s so funny to me! Ahh damn, the search to replace bacon goes on!

    Liked by 1 person

    1. The Curry Chicken turned out sooo yummy & arugula on top of a burger is pretty good. πŸ™‚ You could always do both lettuce & arugula, too, if it’s too bitter! The burger may have looked grey because the bar is pretty dark lol but it is sooo yummy!!

      Yeah, the cashier really thought his vape would be different somehow? They’re all the same to me & I’ve tried so many different ones lol.

      I don’t think there is anything that will ever replace bacon. πŸ˜€

  5. I bet it was allergies that gave you such a bad headache! I know I had that a lot with my allergies earlier this year. I’m glad it cleared up for you, though!
    Ooh I love that nail color! That’s gorgeous and you did such a great job!
    Also, those burgers look ridiculously good! Like, they would probably win a contest or be featured on Guy Fieri’s shows lol.

    1. I do think it was the allergies. Totally sucked but, I’m glad that the Breathe-X was able to fix it. Yours def sounded way worse. 😦 I hope you’ve cleared up, too!

      Thank you for the compliments on my nails! They’re all short & itty bitty now because they broke shortly after. 😦

      I LOVE Guy Fieri LOL Bar Code is def a spot that could’ve featured on Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives!

      1. I’ve learned allergies are the worst! Thankfully, they are mostly under control me for now, lol. Moving helped too, which is actually funny because everyone says allergies are worse here since there’s lots of greenery and pollen. I’ve never heard of Breathe-X before!

        Aww what a disappointment about your nails. I bet they will grow back soon, though!

        Oh my gosh YES Guy is the funniest. I love watching his shows! He was on Shark Week too this year!

        1. Ahh, well maybe your specific allergies acted up more around something on this side of the country! So happy to hear you’re doing so much better now though. πŸ™‚ Breathe-X are these “Vegetarian Capsules” we found at Sprouts, they’ve replaced Claritin for us! With Claritin, our allergies would leave but return within a week or so. Boyfriend’s not had allergies ONCE since he took two of these pills & mine only came back twice (so far) but with longer periods of time in between. They’re by a brand called LifeSeasons & I posted it in my April Currentlys if you’re curious to see what it looks like!

          I hope they grow back soon!! I need supplements to help keep them stronger lol & Guy is really so funny. I’m not sure what Shark Week is.. I’ll have to look it up!

          1. I think so too! I think I was allergic to certain plants native to the Southwest. Of course I could still have allergies here come fall or spring, but I’m crossing my fingers that it’s not as bad!
            Ohhh how cool that that’s a Sprouts item! I love that it has worked so well for you guys! Claritin really never did anything for me, I always needed Zyrtec, but I love that this works even better!
            Shark Week was just last week or so, it’s a week-long series on Discovery all about sharks. It’s pretty fascinating!

            1. Yeah, that could have been it! I hope your allergies don’t come back in any coming seasons!

              I’m not sure if the Breathe-X is only available at Sprouts, I think any “natural” store may have it. I had never tried Zyrtec but I wonder if it woulda been better than Claritin, too!

              Oh my gosh, I always get Shark Week mixed up with Shark Tank LOL!
