January Favourites 2015!

Yay! The first Monthly Favourites of 2015! Here we go…

Makeup Favourite

s1445105-main-Lhero

Ciaté Velvet Manicure

I actually got this as a stocking stuffer for Christmas but you can get it at Sephora for $30.00. I don’t do my nails often so I’m not so great at doing them at all, but this was pretty east to use and it looks great after. My favourite colour is purple so it’s even more of a bonus but the dark purple in this set is amazing.

Skin Care Favourite

cetaphil-127-gentle-cleansing-bar-400x400-imaeyxgs9qkbkfvz

Cetaphil Gentle Cleansing Bar

This is just a regular bar of soap but it’s great for sensitive skin, all Cetaphil products are in my opinion. I mostly use this for my face, I found all other face products weren’t doing the job so I randomly tried it. It’s gentle so it makes your face actually feel clean, after I put the face lotion on that I wrote about before to finish the job. Unfortunately in Canada one bar can go for $7.00-$8.00 but in the States you can get a pack of 3 for the same price.

Hair Care

Infiniti Pro by Conair Curl Secret

My sister got this as a Christmas gift but I’m the actual person who used it so far, I didn’t use it on myself, I used it on my sister’s hair. I watched reviews and how to use them online and people seemed to be struggling. I found it to be so cool and way faster than a normal curler. You can get it at your local drug store or beauty store if they have them. They are also on the expensive side for Conair products, it’s going for $90.00-$150.00 in Canada.

Body Favourite

pBBW1-17735661v850

Bath & Body Works Eucalyptus Mint Hand Soap (Deep Cleansing Hand Soap)

All my hand soaps are from this store, I find them to clean your hands well and they smell great. I love this one specifically because it’s relaxing to me, they also have stress relief things that are this scent.  At the store it’s $6.50 each but they always have a great deal on for getting a bunch of them.

Home Favourite

my-little-steamer-go-mini-hand-steamer-3

My Little Steamer Go Mini Hand Steamer

I actually saw this on a YouTube channel and thought it was so cool. I got it for Christmas but you can get it at Bed, Bath & Beyond for $24.99. It’s really easy to use, it works and it small enough to pack when you’re going away.

Music Favourite

maxresdefault

Heart Upon My Sleeve by Avicii

It’s just a very cool song with what it sounds like an orchestra playing with a DJ. There’s no words just this amazing music, check it out.

Random Favourite

Nintendo-2DS-2

Nintendo 2DS – Red

My boyfriend got himself and I one each as early Christmas gifts, we got them refurbished on the Nintendo website for $75.00, in stores they’re going for $130.00. It’s pretty cool, all 3DS games work on it, you can face people you know online or if your sitting beside the person it just finds their DS. Pretty amazing and really fun.

Thanks for reading, hopefully you guys liked it and maybe helped you find something you might like! Let me know if you’ve tried any of these products and what you thought of them!

Target Canada Closing – My Opinion

Yesterday morning Target Canada announced that they will be closing all 133 stores, leaving 17,000 people without jobs.

From my understanding Target Canada was only open for two years and in my opinion was a lot better than Shoppers Drug Mart and Walmart. I use AUSSIE shampoo, from time to time I switch it up and try something new but AUSSIE is my go to brand. At Shoppers Drug Mart my shampoo and conditioner is $8.00 each; at Walmart the same shampoo and conditioner is $5.00 each; and of course at Target Canada the same shampoo and conditioner is $3.00 each (sometimes $2.00).

That’s why I shop at Target Canada.

I’m not saying Target has all the best deals because they don’t, but the things you use everyday and buy a lot more of is cheaper than anywhere else.

From my understanding Target Canada is closing because in the two years they’ve been open they’ve lost billions of dollars and said they wouldn’t make any profit until 2020 if they keep the Canadian stores open. I was quickly reading an article  about this and someone said (I think it was the CEO, I could be wrong) that it was plain and simple, Canada didn’t do what we wanted it to do so they’re being closed down.

That sounds pretty rude to me but it’s just business everyone.

In my opinion Target went at coming to Canada all wrong. They opened 133 stores as fast as they could, instead they should of opened them slowly, maybe one in each major city. In Brampton alone there’s 4-5 I believe and most of them are at malls (which closing the ones in the malls will close them even more money, they said millions just in closing Targets at malls).

Since they did it their way and opened all 133 stores at once and it didn’t work out, I’m wondering why they didn’t do what Sears did and close a couple of stores to save money? Because they’ve decided to close them all at once, leaving us Canadians teased, I think they’ve made a bad name for themselves.

The best part about them closing down is that City Pulse 24 News released that Target Canada was closing before the stores told their employees, leaving some to find out from the news that they no longer have a job. I know this because my sister and a couple of friends are some of the 17,000 people who no longer have a job.

In the end I think Target Canada will be missed by some.

Thanks for reading.

2015: My New Year’s Resolution

Welcome to 2015! It has been off to a great start for me and I hope it has been for you as well.

For years I haven’t made any resolution but now that I’m getting older I really need to be making realistic goals for myself. I know I have The 2015 List but those are just fun things I want to do throughout the year, here I’m going to make a small list of the things I want to improve in myself.

1. Eat healthy. I don’t mean by going on a full on diet that never works because the word “diet” means a temporary change. What I mean about eating healthy is not worrying about calories, just eating healthy foods and feeling great inside and out. Also a little add on to eating healthy, I want to add in that I want to drink more water. 

2. Cut out pop. I don’t drink that much pop to begin with but it’s something no one should have. It’s full of sugar, bad for your teeth and your body. It will be hard because pop is an addiction because of what’s in it but I’m sure I can at least cut it down some more.

3. Be more positive. I do have to admit I do find myself being more negative than positive and that’s something I want to change. I just want to see the positive side of things and stop worrying as much, now that doesn’t mean not caring but a way to have less stress.

4. See my Dad once a month. If you have read my blog you may know that my Dad lives 45 mins away and I don’t have a car, which makes it hard to go see him especially with work mixed into it. I just want to see my dad more often and making a goal of going up to see him once a month is a great way to do that, I mean in my opinion.

5. Get organised.  I have a great deal of stuff crammed into my small room, most of it is stuff I need and use but it’s just not organised. I actually already started this today because having a clean room, to me, is less stressful. Start with getting rid of clothes, throwing out things I don’t need or use anymore, and organizing the items I do need to keep and use.

6. Stop procrastinating, just do it! This is a bad habit of mine and I’m sure many other people have this problem too, we all wait to the last minute. I did it all throughout high school and my days now. I need to time manage better and get things done on time but in a timely manner with my 100% effort, not last minute crap. The just do it part is a way of saying go do the things you wanted to do, if you’ve wanted to travel to somewhere new, just do it. If you wanted to buy a car, work your ass off and just do it!

Thanks for reading,
