Throw Back Thursday: Little Tikes Car

Remember the Flintstones and how they drove their “cars”? That’s what I use to call my Little Tikes car. Now i know these are still around with different colours and styles but my old style car is the best one.

My Little Tikes car had an orange body, yellow roof, black front bars, black wheels and tires and not to forget the fake white gas cap. You had to use your feet to move the car, it was the hardest thing when I was young. I was always a really short kid, reaching the ground wasn’t a common thing in my life which would make my feet get stuck under the car! The struggle was real back in the day.

The downside to this car was you could never go fast! You could only move as fast as your legs could move but even then, there wasn’t much leg room.

In my family, we will forever remember this car because it has a family story.

When I was about 4-5 I was sitting on the roof of the Little Tikes car, I was watching TV, I have no idea why my parents let me up there but it wasn’t a worry to them. In the house that I grew up in there was a long hallway that connected the bedrooms to the living room/kitchen/dining room. That day my sister was mad at me, so she came running down the hallway and pushed me off the car. I landed on my shoulder and broke my collarbone. I ended up having to wear a sling for a couple of weeks. My mum now has a Christmas ornament of the car!

All in all this little car was a pretty awesome toy and every kid loved it!

Throw Back Thursday: Skip It

Your entire life you work on skills to becoming an adult and some days being an adult just plain sucks. Bills, responsibilities, work, and all the stress, it can be a lot; it’s important to just take a moment, take a deep breath and remember to be a child again! Have fun with life!

Nothing is better than remembering that awesome thing we did, had, watched or listened to, that’s why I’m starting Throw Back Thursday! I’m going to write about something I did, had, watched or listened to from the 90’s!

Lets get started…

Skip It

enhanced-buzz-25162-1377727353-0

Does anyone remember that awesome toy where you just skip over a ball that’s around your leg, again and again? I use to have one and, like every other girl in the 90’s, was obsessed with it!

It was a pretty pointless toy when you think about it now, but most toys are. Skip It had one of those old counters, that counted how many time it went around, girls would have mini competitions on who could get the highest number before someone tripped over it!

Tripping over it was the worst part of this toy, if you somehow missed it would fly right into your shin leaving a bruise, but of course after that happened we just kept skipping until it happened again.

Kids now and days would probably think Skip It is the most ridiculous thing since most play indoor with electronics. This was a pretty fun toy when I was a child and am curious to see if I could still use Skip It without killing me leg.

Let me know if you guys like this post and if I should continue it. Also if you did like this post tell me if you had this toy, what you thought of it or give me some suggestions!

February Favourites 2015!

Make Up Favourite

s1461052-main-hero

tarte Maracuja Lip Exfoliant

I believe I got this for Christmas 2 years agao and I still have it and lots of it. It’s not an everyday make up routine, maybe once a week. I tend to use it whenever I have chapped lips that just started to get bad. It’s great because it gets rid of all the dead skin and your lips start to feel good again. You can get this product at Sephora for $21.00.

Skin Care Favourite

ba2d2cfd-d02b-4150-97c2-961f36741b37.png.w960

Dove Revive Dry Spray Antiperspirant

I saw all the commercials for this new product and I wanted to try it out for myself. I use the normal Dove deodorants so I’m familiar with the company, I must say I’m pretty impressed. It smells great and you don’t have to worry about those clumps that can happen. Now the bottle says it’s 48 hour protection – that’s a straight up lie – it works like your normal deodorant, you’re gonna have to reapply. You can get it at any local store that sells beauty supplies, mine was roughly $6.00.

Hair Care Favourite

2223652

Organix Renewing Argan Oil of Morocco Extra Penetrating Oil (Dry and Coarse Hair)

I got this because we all know I work in a pool and it kills my hair. I’ve been using this for about 2 years now and love it, you don’t need a lot, maybe a little drop, rub it in your hands than put it in your hair. I mostly put it in the ends because that’s where it gets the worst. You can put too much in your hair and make your hair greasy looking. You can get this at any beauty supply/drug store roughly for $6.00 to $7.00.

Body Favourite

IMG_3746-1024x757

St. Ives Oatmeal & Shea Butter Hydrating Body Wash

So the story with this one was I ran out of body wash at my boyfriend’s house and forgot to buy more. When I was in the shower one of the roommates body wash was there. She’s my friend so I just used a little bit. It made my body feel so soft and clean, I went home and bought some for myself; and it smell pretty good too. The best part is after I come out of the chlorine and I use this my skin isn’t dry and itchy anymore. I got this at Target for $4.00.

Home Favourite

the-loop-premade-drinks-girls-night-out-sangriaGirls’ Night Out Sangria – Flavoured Wine

My good friend decided that she was going to have a wine and cheese night, and I’m not much of a wine drinker but I do love sangria. My boyfriend got me hooked on it, anyways, I started looking online and I know the Girls’ Night Out brand is pretty good. I found sangria flavoured wine! It’s pretty damn good, I shared it with my family before the wine and cheese night, and we finished the bottle pretty damn fast. In the summer you can totally put it in a jug, cut some fruit up and sit outside with it. It is definitely a good starter wine. Here in Canada we have a alcohol store called the LCBO, you can get it there for $8.95.

Music Favourite

51Y7RVKY4FL

Dice by Finley Quaye and William Orbit

This song is mostly know from the show The OC, all their soundtracks are amazing! I was obsessed with this song when I first heard it and I’m glad I found it again. Let me know if you like it!

Random Favourite

Products76807-1300x1300-1176035205

Fujifilm Instax Mini 8 Polaroid Camera – Black

I’ve wanted this camera for years but it’s so popular and kind of hard to find. My sister found it for me and gave it to my for Christmas. The pictures are smaller than normal Polaroid cameras you grew up with or that your parents had but you can get a camera with that size film. The camera is $99.99 at Best Buy, it comes with 2 film packs (20 pictures), the only problem is finding more film, they sell out fast and cost $12.00-$21.00. You also can only get photo albums for it on Ebay right now, they haven’t gotten that for, nor do I think they will. They seem to focus on the cameras only. It is still an amazing and fun camera, old things are coming back!

Alright and that’s it for February Favourites, let me know what you think of my products or tell me what your favourites were this month.
