Fun Findings Friday #186

Happy fall, ya’ll! So weird that today’s officially the first day of the fall season considering it’s still in the 80s and 90s here in Florida. But things are FINALLY starting to feel back to normal after all of that hurricane madness. This weekend is going to be be a low-key one for me, which is much needed after the hurricane, travel, and more travel coming up! Let’s dive into this week’s fun findings.

Ole Henriksen Moisturizer

I’ve mentioned a few times that I’m kind of a creature of habit when it comes to makeup/skincare brands, but I’ve been trying to branch out and try new ones this year. So far I haven’t had too much success, until about a month ago when I decided to try Ole Henriksen. Guys, I’m totally hooked on this stuff. In particular, the moisturizer. It’s lightweight, not sticky, and has been great on my skin! If you haven’t tried it out yet, I highly recommend! Ole Henriksen Moisturizer

iPhone 8 + iPhone X

Can we start off by talking about the two new iPhone models out? This is the first release in YEARS that I haven’t pre-ordered a phone, but talk about being thrown off with two models! I was really loving that animoji feature on the iPhone X (available for pre-order in a couple weeks), but just can’t justify that crazy price tag. What happened to the days when phones were $200-300?! I will say that I’m really disappointed that Apple got rid of the 128GB model this time around. So the only options are 64GB (too small) or 256GB (super big). Nothing for Goldilocks here! But anywho, I decided I’m going to upgrade to the iPhone 8 because I can’t justify that nearly $1200 price tag for the iPhone X and am not sure I’m ready to jump into the full screen/no home button features. Will you be upgrading this time around?

Pennywise (IT) Dancing

I stumbled across a Twitter account yesterday that’s hysterical and terrifying all at the same time. Pennywise Dancing takes one scene from the new IT movie (of Pennywise the clown dancing) and adds music to popular songs behind it. Warning: Creepy clown video below (but also this is genius)! And with my trip to Ireland rapidly approaching, I couldn’t help but pick “Come On, Eileen” as the song to share!

  • Anna Hubbard

    Lmao that It video is hilarious!

    • Isn’t it?! Whoever started that account is a genius!

  • Sydney Power

    Love these fun findings friday! The video is really hilarious LOL!

    • Thanks, Sydney :) I couldn’t stop laughing going through several of the other videos too. Never would’ve thought to put IT + popular pop songs together, haha!

  • Agree re: #tbt to phones being affordable! The 8 sounds like the right move…that’s what I’ll be getting when I replace mine, too! Hope you’ve had a relaxing weekend so far :)

    • Thanks, Monica! I have! Hope you’ve had a good one too :)

  • My husband needs a new phone (he still uses the 4, seriously), so I’m thinking an upgrade might be in our future… but those price tags. YIKES. I feel like the cell phone companies definitely have us by the throat now. The international plans have gotten REALLY bad, the regular phone plans aren’t that great (my husband is actually grandfathered in under unlimited data), and the phones are stupid expensive. Sigh.

    • The 4?! Ahh I can’t believe that’s even functioning still, haha. The price tags really are scary! I guess it’s a good thing we can pay in installments because the $800+ is serious sticker shock! As for international plans, there’s a service I’ve used a few times that has made using my phone while abroad really affordable! There’s a link in my sidebar for it!

      • TEP is the greatest thing ever! I actually started using it because of you!!! It’s been a game changer for us!

        • I’m so glad to hear that!! It’s been wonderful for me too – I’ll never travel without it now!

  • Kaitlyn Fickle Killebrew

    I totally agree with you about the new iPhones! I just got the 7 last year, so I’m gonna pump the brakes for a year I think!

  • Eek! I have the iPhone 7 but really would love the iPhone 8 Plus for those Portrait Mode photos!

    • They look so cool don’t they?! As silly as it is I really love that animoji feature on the X – but can’t justify that price tag!

  • I LOVE the new Animoji feature in the new iPhones too, they’re so adorable! hahaha! Also, that video is hilarious!

    • Aren’t they?! Hopefully they’ll be included in next year’s iPhone 9 update!

  • I want to upgrade to iPhone 8 (not iPhone 10) as well. So happy you found a moisturizer you love!

    • I hope you’re able to pick it up soon. It’s always so exciting to get new tech gadgets :)

  • The video with Pennywise dancing to every song CRACKS ME UP. In the theater, when it was supposed to be “spooky” I was laughing, so adding the extra layer of ridiculousness made it even better.

    • I’m so glad you love it too, ha! He was creepy to look at for sure, but I thought most of his scenes were more on the funny side too!

  • I will not watch that movie! haha That moisturizer sounds great!

  • Thanks for sharing your Friday finds! I am on the same boat as you with the iPhone upgrade. I can’t believe how expensive the iPhone X is!! WHAAAT!

    Diary of a Debutante

    • I can’t believe the price tag on it either! I miss the days when it was only $200-300!

  • I am totally a creature of habit too when it comes to skincare stuff! I am always so scared to try something new! Hope you had a fab weekend!

    • Same! It’s hard to branch out especially if you already have something you love! What are some of your faves?
