My October 2019 Currentlys…

Oh my gosh, I know I keep talking about it but, I swear, Thayers Witch Hazel Facial Toner in Rose Petal may have actually been made by witches. It’s magical! (Sorry, I had to start this off with such a bad joke, lol.)

My new friend, Jenni (@xo, jenni) and I have a LOT in common. Unfortunately, one of those things is… eczema. She mentioned using Go-To Face Hero on her dry patches and I remembered I got my very own bottle of the stuff in May’s Ipsy Plus. I hadn’t used it yet and was very excited to finally give it a try. It’s truly been healing up my elbow, I haven’t seen this much improvement in sooo long. It’s feeling less itchy and scaly everyday! (I’m also still applying my LXMI Balm over top the oil and it just feels amazing together.)

I got this mini tube of Smashbox Cosmetics Studio Skin 24 Hour Wear Hydrating Foundation in the shade 3.18 Neutral in my Sept. Ipsy Glam Bag. It matches me the most perfectly out of the other foundations I currently have so, I’m going to keep using it until it’s all gone.

The Smashbox foundation doesn’t spread that nicely or evenly on its own but, I found it’s quite beautiful on top of the Yensa Tone Up Primer Essential Glow. I also think my skin is getting brighter just from using this underneath my makeup?

Cordelia (@Violet Palace) inspired me to pull out my long lost Cover FX Glitter Drops in Nova. While the sparkles are super chunky and dramatic, they only go where you want them, they don’t just spread all over your entire face.

On my nails, I’m wearing OPI Nail Lacquer in Midnight in Moscow. I used Essie All-in-One (not pictured) for a base and top coat.

We are smoking 3 Pac by Mojave of Greenleaf Enterprises INC. As you can see… it’s almost time for another run to the dispensary.

To hit you with a double whammy, Pamela (@Starring Pamela) gave me the best idea to save all my playbills and put them into a big binder. I was able to fit all of last season’s and all of the other shows I went to before I had my subscription. I’ll definitely need another one for all of this season’s!

The second item is… my “spooky”-themed blanket that I set up in the background. πŸ˜€ I bought it from Ross for less than $10. It’s super soft and, oh so, adorable!! There are dogs AND cats on it but, I’m sad only the dogs are really showing in the (above) photos.

Of course, after raving about The Honest Co. wipes, they went and changed it! The packaging is different and supposedly “improved” but, I am NOT convinced. They are WAY too wet and a lot thinner now… I usually buy them from Albertsons for around $4 but, I spotted them at Sprouts, selling for… nearly $9! I would definitely never, ever pay that for baby wipes. Even if they went back to their old formula.

The temps have FINALLY dropped a smidgen over here and I got to take my first of many hot bubble baths without sweating to death. So lovely and relaxing. ❀

Speaking of the change in seasons, I am using a phone theme called Autumn Letter by PhintonART. I’m looking for a more spooky one now, though.

Grillo’s Pickles Hot Spears are SO addicting! This is already our second tub because we ran through the first one quick as ever. They have a tiny bite of spice and actual dill leaves and peppers floating around. Mmm, mmm!

Izzio Lucky Seven Multigrain is our new go-to loaf of bread! It’s so freaking good plainly toasted with a little Earth Balance Original spread on top. I like how they’re not the traditional square-ish shape, they’re way bigger, rounder, and more firm, similar to complimentary restaurant breads.

I cannot recommend Mom’s Best Cereals enough. Currently, we have our second box of Crispy Cocoa Rice and are almost done with our huge box of Honey Nut Toasty O’s, too. I’m telling you, these taste BETTER than actual Cocoa Pebbles and Cheerios.

I’m pretty positive that I’ve shared Cedar’s Hommus in a previous Currentlys… post before but, was it this awesome Mediterranean flavor? (Probably, lol.) It’s seriously the best one you can find in-stores. The consistency is perfectly thick and so so tasty. I have learned my lesson and won’t be buying any other brands anymore!

Sorry, we ate half our Irish Soda Bread before I took a photo of it. A lady at Sprouts was giving out samples of this bread all the way back in March but, at the time, we had enough sweets at home so we didn’t buy a loaf. We thought it’d be there next time but, sadly, we were mistaken! FINALLY, they recently returned for a short period and I didn’t think twice before putting one in our cart. They are dairy-free deliciousness which is extremely hard to find in the freshly baked goods section!

I am always excited when we run out of honey because there are loads of different ones to choose from nowadays. I picked up the Ambrosia Honey Co. Amber Harvest for the first time and oh my, it makes my tastebuds sing. It’s super pure and clean, I can’t even explain it.

I have been drizzling the honey over tons and tons of fruit. Currently, my #1 favorite snack.

Last up in this category– I am still drinking Kicking Horse Coffee but, decided to try their Three Sisters Medium Roast during a BOGO Free sale. It’s good but, you know, I am a dark roast girl at heart.

I’m on Episode 5 of 13 Reasons Why Season 03. I’m not as invested as the first two seasons because like… who the fuck cares about Bryce Walker? And Clay looks so weird and skinny, lol. What happened to him?

I watched a LOT of Glee episodes when it was on TV but, never from beginning to end. I just started from the first episode of the first season and will probably continue until the end. πŸ™‚ I can’t wait! There are certain parts I clearly remember but, it’s interesting to see the things that lead up to them that I completely forgot about. Plus, the music and singing, hello! It makes me giddy!

Currently, I am reading a super hyped book. My expectations are probably too high. Maybe you’ve heard of it? The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid. I’ve gotten through about 40% and thought most of it was rather predictable… very well written and interesting but, I saw every single thing coming before it even did… we’ll see if I find all the hype by the end… (fingers crossed!)

  1. Those berries look so delicious, Hunida! I’m going to miss the in-season fruits as winter rolls in. Love all your products here, especially the witch hazel. I haven’t seen that one. Not even sure what brand I use, but can’t live without it.

    I love the Midnight in Moscow nail polish! 😍

    1. Mmm, the berries are soso good. I am going to miss the in-season prices lol! The Witch Hazel is a lifechanger, isn’t it? Maybe any brand will do, Thayers is just the first & only I’ve tried, so far. πŸ™‚

    1. It really has sped up the healing process & made it less itchy. THANK YOU SO MUCH! It does smell quite nice & florally. ❀

      Another blogger from Canada told me the same thing & then I saw it written right at the bottom of the bag!! So cool!! Sadly, we only have like three different options at our grocery store. The only Dark Roast we have is Kick Ass which I'm addicted to lol. I so wish I could try the Bear Claw blend. & yessss, Earth Balance is life. I never miss real butter because of it!! ❀ Boyfriend makes the best garlic bread with it. ❀

V creative ❀️ I do love Smashbox products though I think I’ve only ever tried one of there foundations but I love love love a lot of their makeup! It just makes me think of all things glowy! The Primer from Yensa sounds really awesome too, love that it’s helping to brighten your skin omg 😍 amazing! And that fruit looks so delicious too… what a perfect healthy snack 😍 Strawberries are one of my faves!!! I’d not heard of The Seven Husbands Of Evelyn Hugo. It sounds intriguing! I wonder if I would find it predictable or not! I hope it does live up to the hype for you! Have a great rest of the week Hunida ❀️❀️❀️

    1. LOL oh my gosh, I’m embarrassed you mentioned the joke. I couldn’t not say it. It truly clears my redness & bumps in a single day. You must try it! The Smashbox primer has a really nice finish, I love how smooth it made me look. πŸ™‚ I can’t remember if I’ve tried anything else by them before but, I hope to try more now! I do love the Yensa primer & think it’s brightening my skin, for real. ❀ Fruit is so so good, I can eat so much in one sitting & never be full enough lol. I wonder what you'd think of Evelyn Hugo, I just finished reading it & I have mixed thoughts & emotions! Hope you have a great rest of your week, too, babe!! ❀

  4. OOO I really need to try that Go-To Face Hero because can get such bad eczema flare ups on my fingers and I’ve been struggling to find something that really works.

    I love the idea to put all of your playbills together in one binder. It will be such a nice collection to keep adding to and look back on as you see more shows!! I used to do something similar with concert tickets.

    And omg that hummus looks so bomb – I’ve never tried the Mediterranean style before!! I’ll have to pick some up!!

    1. The Go-To Face Hero will help you out with that, for sure! I’m sorry you get the eczema on your fingers, that must be so irritating & itchy. 😦

      I am so happy with my playbills binder. I hope to keep it forever & ever! ❀ I always tell myself I'll collect & save all kinds of tickets but, ended up losing them all. I think they'll be safe this way. πŸ™‚

      That hummus is sooo tasty! I hope you like it as much as I do if you find it!

  5. Ahhh! I keep waiting for my ban period to be over so I can try the legendary Thayers!!!! And Yess to pulling out that glitter drop hehe! I just wanna wear mine all the time, but I’m always going to places that would be absurd to wear makeup (warehouse, supermarket etc.)
    Oof, I love how vampy Moscow is…reminds me I NEED TO GET A MANICURE!
    I love that you have a binder for your playbills and the blanket!!! Isit fleece? Because mine is too and I love it!
    Oh no what happened honest!? why are they cutting cost to become thinner gosh! and wayy too expensive!
    Mmm, hummus!
    Oh no, I can’t bring myself to watch glee because some of the characters/actors are so tragic.
    Hope the book turns out good!
    As usual, love reading this!

    1. Ahh! You have awesome self-control, you got this! When does the ban end?! I love wearing the glitter drops to work lately, thanks to you for inspiring me to bring them out! πŸ˜€ I don’t think you’d look absurd wearing it out & about, honestly! It’s just a pretty sparkle!!

      YESS, I love that you called the nail polish ‘vampy.’ That’s exactly what I was going for!! Do you go to the salon to get your manicures??

      I am in love with my playbill binder, I could stare at it all day lol. I’m not sure what the blankie is made out of but oh my gosh, it is SOFT! ❀ I am mad at Honest, the new packaging is ugly & their new wipe suck! I can't believe how expensive they are at some stores, too, WOW!

      I know, the Glee characters are so tragic in real life but, I figure since the child porno watcher is dead now, it's alright to watch?? Are there other tragedies?? I only know about that one & Finn overdosing, which is so heartbreaking. 😦

      Thanks so much for reading & for your lovely comment!! ❀

  6. I watched like 4 episodes of 13 Reasons Why Season 2 and couldn’t really get into it. I am tempted to try again so that I can go and view Season 3 (although I have heard that that is even more of a disappointment). I think it’s missed its spark…like you said – who cares about Bryce Walker? lol but I guess it’s interesting to see if people would care when a bully (but also rapist) gets killed.

    1. Ah, Season 03 is really hard to get through. It’s really boring me so honestly, I wouldn’t recommend it. I guess it makes sense the angle their going for since it’s so popular now, like with the Zac Efron/Ted Bundy film. Did you enjoy Season 01?

  7. In about 2 months ahhh! YES OMG YOU MUST BE POPPING AT WORK HAHAH!
    Perfect for the spooky season! Yes, if i want them to look nice and last longer (gel) then I’ll go to the salon!
    Ooof, yes its so satisfying to look at this nice collated binder!
    Oh man, how weird that they decided to take a turn like that!
    i cant separate the actors from their real lives and tbh I’ve always felt Mark, the actor who plays Puck, a little iffy since i was a kid and then to have this happen years later was so eerie for me. Too heavy sadly!!

    1. Lol I think I may have put too much of the drops on tonight, I will definitely be popping at work but you’re right, it’s spooky season so it’s the perfect time to be extra!! πŸ˜€ I am glad you get the same satisfaction with my binder!! & I agree, I always hated Puck so I just cringe whenever he is on screen.

  8. I love witch hazel! I’m using a different brand and it’s fine, but I miss my Thayers! I watched the third season of 13 reasons why and I wasn’t as into it either… it was just ok for me… I agree that Clay looked a lot skinnier and just… off. I loved glee! I need to watch that again sometime soon! I also want to check out that book!

    1. I used a different Witch Hazel at my sister’s apartment once & it was also nice but nothing compared to Thayers! Ugh, I wanna finish S3 of 13RW but, it’s draaagging on for me. Clay does seem off & not as lovable as before. His cheeks look so sunken in! & Glee makes me so happy lol, I love it! Hope you like the book if you do check it out. πŸ˜€

  10. I’m so glad you also loved the toner! And I say this every time you mention liking it too lol. I’m really liking the lavender one too.
    So glad you found something for your eczema. I see CL deal with it when it’s really hot and it sucks to see him so uncomfortable.
    I really like the CoverFX glitter drops to mix with foundations lol. I’ve been doing that a lot lately, though right now I’m not mixing this one.
    Saving your play bills is such a great idea! I actually need to keep collecting memories for my memory book. I havent put anything in there in a very long time lol.
    I’ll have to look for that multigrain bread loaf I love to try new breads lol
    I’ve actually had the crispy cocoa rice before and LOVED it! Ciel finally finished the marshmallow ones. Lol.
    Irish soda bread sounds interesting. I’ve never heard of it before I dont think? Nor have I seen it lol.
    I wasnt into 13RW S3 as much either, but I watched it all the way through to see how they would unfold the plot. Eh.. there was loads of things they could have done better or taken off altogether.

    1. The toner is so easy to use up, it won’t be long until I need a new one. Maybe I’ll have to try the lavender one next. 😊

      Aw, I’m sorry Ciel has to deal with eczema, too. I can’t even control myself & always end up scratching. I bet it’s so hard for him. What do you apply on his patches?

      Those Cover FX drops are so intense! I only dab a dot of it on my cheeks for sparkles. I haven’t tried it mixed in foundation but, I’m a little intimidated to try lol.

      I have a memory/scrapbook, too! I haven’t put anything in it in SO long but, these big ass playbills needed their own binder. πŸ’—

      The bread is SO good. I am more into crustier breads over the softer ones right now. I hope you like it if you try it! & the Irish Soda Bread is really yummy, too. I saw Diane posted a recipe of it awhile back! & mmm, the cocoa rice cereal is so yummy. We got two new boxes we haven’t tried yet now!

      I just finished 13RW S3 last night! I still don’t know what I think. 😱

      1. So what I did is bought a travel set of spray and shampoo bottles from the dollar store and put some of the toner into the spray bottle so I can spray it instead of using cotton balls or rounds, it seems a bit wasteful anyway, not only the cotton but the product as well since the cotton soaks up a lot. I’m definitely using a lot less so it lasts more.
        Yeah sometimes he won’t stop but at least he tells me now LOL. And since it got so bad when he was younger, they gave us prescription hydrocortisone, but sometimes I use Aquaphor LOL.
        Yeah since it’s very intense you definitely want to add like less than a drop and see how that wears because it also depends on the foundation and its thickness and what not.
        I go back and forth with crusts as well. Ah that’s right she did, I will have to ask her for the link and see if I can try it myself.
        Did you like 13RW? LOL

        Liked by 1 person

        1. Ooo! That’s such a smart idea to move it into spray bottles. Does your skin still get the same amount of toner if you are not rubbing it in with a cotton ball though? I feel like I’d still wanna rub the product in after the spray?

          I had prescription hydrocortisone as a kiddo, too. It always helped but, not for long. These eczema patches keep returning. 😭 Is the Aquaphor good on it?

          I posted my review on 13RW yesterday! I gave it 3 out of 5 stars, for the ending. Otherwise I may have given it like 2… it doesn’t make sense though because they said Bryce was shot in the head… so who did that? If the ‘killer’ only threw him in the water?

          Like

          1. Well if you spray it from afar the mist does spread out evenly throughout the face, so long as the atomizer is a good one. I literally only need like three sprays at the most but I go overboard with it haha. But still, it’s less wasteful than with cotton rounds or balls. I’m using way less since the cotton soaks up a lot of it to begin with it even feel saturated you know?
            Surprisingly yes, aquaphor works. And CL hasnt gotten his eczema as badly as he used to when he was younger though I am using a mix of the hydrocortisone and aquaphor. I hope you’re able to find something that works for you!!

          2. Ah shoot I completely missed your response about 13RW. But ok I’ll get to it eventually haha
            And at first they had said that he was shot and then it was rescinded and then announced that it was a beating. It was dumb. I dont remember if they mentioned it or not but that being in the water and having drowned or whatever. the Rapids might have thrown his body around into rocks or something, thus explaining the hole in his head. However, I dont think they wrapped it up as they should have. Maybe it’s a set up for the next season, if that’s what they’re planning…ugh they need to stop lol

  11. Oh Glee…that brings back a lot of memories! I started watching it before Joshua & I dated (which was 4 years ago today!!), and then we watched the rest together. I love the music!! ❀
    I still need to find a good, affordable-ish coffee here. I can't find Peet's, so I think it was a west coast thing, maybe, and Starbucks is like $15! O.O Currently, we've been drinking Dunkin' Donuts, but it's a medium-roast and I def prefer dark roast.

    1. Ahh, I love Glee. ❀ Boyfriend always makes fun of it while I watch it but, I hear him laugh here & there, too. πŸ˜‰ It cheers me up right when I press play. I'm kind of happy I only watched random episodes when it was on TV so it's still fun watching from the beginning & I never watched any of the later seasons at all so I'm excited to get to them!

      That's a bummer you can't find Peet's! Have you checked the Starbucks stores? Sometimes they sell their coffee for cheaper than the grocery store does. The Kicking Horse brand is reeeally quite expensive when it's not on sale, too, but, gosh, it's so good. We're back to our Dark Roast one, Medium Roast just tastes so bland compared to it, right?!

      1. Haha yeah lots of people like to tease about Glee but in the end, it’s still an entertaining show. πŸ˜‰

        I haven’t tried buying their coffee at Starbucks actually, that’s a good idea! It’s at least worth looking to see how much they charge. Yes dark roast has more depth of flavor for sure!!

          ‘whole bean’ ones for you at the store. πŸ™‚
