Merry Christmas

Now that the Christmas madness is over and done with lets recap. First off, how was everyone’s Christmas? Let me know in the comments!

I’m just gonna write a little bit of what happened on my holidays.

Dec 24th, 2014 – I think I previously wrote that I go to my dad’s house and spend the eve with him. We went up there pretty early but it’s alright we got to spend some time with them before all the people came over. At one point my boyfriend and my dad went upstairs to have naps – I’m dating my father – it was pretty funny but the girls stayed downstairs, had shots and cheers to having great sex in the future! We woke up the boys about an hour later because we wanted to open our gifts, at this point I felt really bad for my boyfriend because there was pretty much nothing for him and he was bored. I knew at my mum’s house he would have a lot more gifts and stuff he would like. Anyways, we opened the gifts and people started to come over, it was just some family friends and people they work with, we all had some food and talked in the kitchen – kitchen party as my family calls it. The weather was starting to get bad, my sister and my bestfriend had a long drive back home and my boyfriend and I had a long drive to his mother’s house to open gifts there. When we got there we had to wait for the rest of the family but it wasn’t that long of a wait. We opened our gifts and went on with our day.

Dec 25th, 2014 – For the past couple of weeks I haven’t been able to sleep, I always wake up at 5am and just end up sitting there. Since it was Christmas I was hoping my sister would wake up at that time but she didn’t; which is weird since she normally does. We got up and opened gifts, we got spoiled that’s for sure. After all the excitement settled down we all went a did our own thing for a couple hours before the madness started up again, I took a nap. My boyfriend came over because we had to go to his mum’s house for Christmas lunch, we walked in the door and started eating right away, we weren’t there for long but that’s how the family works. We headed back to my house where my family was there now, we ate dinner, had desert and my uncle who I hate came over. I won’t get into details about why I don’t like him, lets just say he is an asshole, but the one thing I’m going to write is his one child is such a brat. This kid, who is 9 years old, was yelling at his father to give him alcohol. This kid wouldn’t shut up about it until my boyfriend said you can have alcohol when I throw it up, see what it does to you. The kid didn’t speak of it again and thankfully for that. By the end of the night I wanted to punch my uncle so I left to my boyfriend’s house.

Dec 26th, 2014 – Today is the worst day when it comes to Christmas days. Not because the malls are packed but because I have to go back to my dads to see my step-mums side of the family. My step-mum has been around for about 5 years now, the family still doesn’t talk to me or anyone else no matter how hard we try. The first time I went to their boxing day dinner was the worst one ever, my sister said she wasn’t going and I went with my boyfriend at the time. You think because it was the first time meeting these people that they would be nice and try talking to us to make us more comfortable, right? Nope I ended up sitting there talking to my boyfriend about how we wanted to leave. Anyways, we pretty much did our own thing, my older step brother brought over my secret Santa gift and told me I was hiding but my bestfriend had just gotten there and I didn’t want her to be eating alone. It’s actually sad but at least it was at my house so I could do whatever I wanted to do. I was really tired so we left around 9 – 10, it was fun seeing my dad again though. In the new year I’m going to make it so I go up to see him at least once a month because it’s not fair we never see each other and I really do need to make a better effort.

That’s pretty much my Christmas madness, how was yours?

I hope everyone had a good one and an even better New Year! See you in 2015!

The Can’t Cook Book Trails Day Three

If you have read my blog all that time then you know that last year for Christmas I got The Can’t Cook Book and I said I was over the time of having it going to try to make every recipe in there. Well I was awake at 5am and was hungry so I looked at one thing I could make.

I went with the Soft-boiled Egg with Toast aka The Granny Egg.

It was pretty easy actually, I didn’t even have the book with me. I may have burnt my toast but that’s because my toaster oven is weird I guess, the egg boiled for 5 1/2 mins to the mark because I timed it and the hardest friggen part was peeling the shell off.

I was off to a good start with peeling but all of the sudden the egg started to break and I could see the yolk. I may have had a mini heart attack because I didn’t want to fuck this up but I did it, I managed to get the shell off and put it in the bowl without breaking it in my hand and having to start all over.

Here it is…

It was pretty damn yummy, I put some sea salt and pepper on it to give it some more flavour! I love this one and will probably make this lots of times. Maybe my boyfriend will like it, but I doubt it. LOL

Thanks for reading!

December Favourites 2014!

I’m going to start something different! Yay! For each month I’m going to have some favourites, make up, skin care, hair care, body, home, music, and random! Lets get started!

I was originally going to take pictures of everything but then I decided that I’ll find them online so you guys can have the best picture of the product. Everything I’m going to post in these favourites I do have in my home.

Makeup Favourite

0002531_maybelline-volum-express-rocket-mascara

Maybelline Volum’ Express The Rocket Waterproof Mascara – Black

I love this mascara because it really doesn’t come off, I wash my face everyday and this bad boy is still there even after makeup wipes. It’s cheap, I got this at Target, I can’t remember how much it was but it’s way cheaper then others.

Skin Care Favourite

772618081207_large

Cetaphil Daily Facial Moisturizer SPF 15

I love all Cetaphil product, they’re great for sensitive skin, which we all know I have, I just put this on after I use their face wash and my face feels amazing after. It’s not oily, it settles really well and it has SPF 15 so you are protecting your skin!

Hair Care Favourite

OGX Weightless Hydration Coconut Water Shampoo and Conditioner Review

Organix Weightless Hydration Coconut Water Shampoo and Conditioner

I know I wrote about this in my last post but I am actually in love with this shampoo and conditioner. When I used it the first time my head felt amazing, I didn’t want to stop washing my head. It’s very refreshing and I love the smell.

Body Favourite

victorias-secret-fordidden-perfume-613-style

Victoria’s Secret Forbidden Perfume

I went to a bridal shower and this was left on my plate as a little gift and I fell in love with it. It smells amazing, it doesn’t make me break out, even my boyfriend loves the smell, it stays on for a long time, it’s just all around a good product. It is on the expensive side but it’s worth the money!

Home Favourite

3-Wick Candle- Watermelon Lemonade T

Bath & Body Works Watermelon Lemonade 

I am very picky when it comes to smells, and I love this one! Unfortunately they change their candles for the seasons so you can only get it in the summer if they have that product again. I really hope they do, I mean I have enough to last me until them anyways but I would like to buy another one.

Music Favourite

Mockingjay-Part-1-Original-Motion-Picture-Score-Art-1024x1024

The Hanging Tree by James Newton Howard 

In the movie it’s sung by Jennifer Lawrence and it’s the best song I’ve heard. You can buy it on iTunes or go see the movie and get the full effect!

Random Favourite

HEAT! 

There’s no picture for this one but I live in Canada and it’s cold, therefore I am very thankful to be able to have a heated apartment.

Alright guys, tell me if you liked this idea and what your favourites were for this month!

Organix Hair: Coconut Water Shampoo + Conditioner Review

I work in a pool which means always being in chlorine water and having dry hair. I normally use other cheap shampoos and conditioners but I decided I wanted to try something new. I saw this and I said why the hell not?

I just tried it in the shower and was actually hoping it would be a really good product because I love the smell and the look of the bottle. When I started to wash my hair it was just normal, but as I started to massage it into my scalp my head started to feel amazing! It was really refreshing, so refreshing to the point where I wanted to keep washing my hair.

I rinsed it out and put the conditioner in, when I rinsed the conditioner out it didn’t really get the tangles out but to be fair I don’t always brush my hair. For me most conditioners don’t get the knots out unless I put a lot in my hair because of me not brushing. My hair is a little dry on the ends but it’s not crunchy like other shampoos and conditioners leave it, it still leaves my hair my naturally wavy so I don’t have to curl/straighten my hair.

I am actually really impressed so far with this product, but I must say it is on the expensive side. I got mine at Target Canada for $8.99 and I looked at Shoppers Drug Mart and it was on sale for $7.99 I believe it was. Still expensive but to be honest so far it was worth the money. I only orginally bought this to leave at my boyfriend’s house but now I’m thinking of actually buying some for my own house for everyday use.

Thanks for reading, I hope this was somewhat helpful to some of you.

Black Friday Shopping + Officially Christmas

How many of you did your Black Friday shopping?

I live in Canada so it wasn’t as big as it would be in the states, I also only went to one store which was Walmart. I didn’t even want to go shopping but my boyfriend wanted to get 2DS games. It was probably the worst shopping experience I’ve had, Walmart has all their games locked up behind some glass and there was so many people lined up for iPads and Tablets that no one was paying attention to any other product by electronics. My boyfriend and I waited for 15-20 mins just to get a game unlocked from this cabinet, it was ridiculous.

When we finally got our games and stood in line it was taking forever, they had people who didn’t even work in electronics working there but all they did was end up standing there. People would walk up to them and ask can you unlock this or help answer me this and these people were like I can’t but I can get someone that can. What was the point of you being there? Useless people I tell you. We ended up getting Mario Kart 7 and Zelda for my boyfriend.

The funny part was we didn’t even have our 2DS yet, they were still coming in the mail, which we were bumped by because when you buy something all you want to do it just play with it right? We were sitting on the couch and saw the mailman come, it was awesome. Just as we said we wish they were here they arrived!

My house is officially Christmased out! We put up all our decorations, both our trees, our Christmas lights have been up forever but that’s okay. I’m also almost done my shopping! I only have one person left to get which they sent me their list today but I’m lazy so I don’t know if I’m getting it today.

Alright, thanks for reading my lazy blog!
