Something you could never get tired of doing



Playing the Sims 3. I have lost many many hours sitting down playing this game. I haven't been playing recently because for some reason The Sims games aren't very compatible with Mac computers and it keeps crashing on me! Its such an addicting game though!

Do you like playing the Sims?

Life Lately

Hello! I just wanted to let you know whats been going on lately in my life.

In one of my posts here I mentioned that we found a new apartment. Our move in date was Dec 1 but luckily for us our landlord said we could start moving last weekend. Unfortunately our new bed won't arrive until tomorrow so we couldn't exactly start moving in at that time. We did start painting though!

We've been going to work all day and then going to the new place and painting all night. We're pretty exhausted lately but its definitely worth it!

I took a few vacation days at work. Starting today I get 5 days off! I'm so excited! I'm going to be at the new apartment all day today waiting for our couch set to arrive and I have to clean the fridge and stove.

I'm pretty sure we'll be taking our computer to the apartment tonight SO I'm not going to have internet until Dec 1. I have pre-written my blog challenge posts for today and tomorrow and set them on a schedule to post automatically. After that I won't be posting until Monday.

Hope you all have a great weekend! I know I will!!

Think back to how you were 5 years ago. How have you changed since then?

Five years ago I was 19. Wow. Five years seems like a long time but I feel like being 19 was not that long ago at all!
I don't think I was much different. Personality wise anyway. I'm not a big fan of change lol. A little more grown up I guess.
In the looks department, lets be honest, I have put on a few extra pounds. I'm working on that.
At 19 I was working at my very first job. It was at a gas station and I didn't really like it. I did at first but over time I just became tired of it. By the end I hated the thought of going there. 
Now however, I work at a pie shop and I actually really enjoy my job! 
So that's a good change.

This post is rather short but I can't really think of any other ways I may have changed.

Hope you enjoyed this post!
How have you changed in the last 5 years?

Something that you miss

High School. I never thought in a million years I would actually miss going to High School but I do! It wasn't even that great but it also wasn't at all bad either. I had a really good group of friends, I had Craig for most of it, the teachers were actually really decent. You don't realize how good you have it in school. Once you leave school you have to get a job, get your own apartment, learn what its like to pay bills. It sucks sometimes. 
Oh well! This is growing up I guess lol

What do you miss most?

What's in your purse


This is my purse. Its by the brand Bueno. I've never heard of this brand before. I just found this at Winners one day. I was looking for something nice and big so this is perfect!

So inside the first zipper I have: A hairnet for work, landlords phone number, receipts, two drawings- one from my niece ( scribbles) and one from Craig's little brother, and eos hand moisturizer. 

Inside the second zipper I have: My wallet, Reactine, more receipts, scratch tickets, Tide stick, a pen and paint colour samples.

Inside the main big part I have: My hat and gloves and an empty water bottle. I usually keep the big part empty because I like to put my lunch for work in there.

Hope you enjoys this post!

1. I'm probably the most stubborn person you will ever meet

3. I have lots of allergies ( animal fur, mascara, any toothpaste with whitening, etc)

4. I work at a pie shop

5. I hate brushing my teeth. Before you get all grossed out I DO brush my teeth! I just hate the act of brushing them. I find it so boring and time consuming lol

6. With that being said, I get bored very easily

7. I love watching movies. Especially scary movies. When I was about 4 me and my sister used to sit in our room watching Chucky. 

8. I hate fingernails. I always cut mine as short as I can and it actually gives me chills if someone else touches me with their fingernails

9. Every so often I have to go someplace I've never been. Whether its a new town or just some random street I've never been on. I don't know why. Its just a feeling I get sometimes.

10. I hate blood! I don't mind it in movies, I'll watch the goriest movie ever but in real life...no.

11. I do not have my drivers license yet! I will soon though.

17. I love keeping things organized. 

18. My favorite flowers are Lilies  

19. I never had wisdom teeth. I was experiencing really bad headaches and jaw aches a few years ago so naturally I thought it was my wisdom teeth. I went to the dentist and he took an x-ray and asked me if I already had them removed! Some people just aren't born with any. (The cause of the headaches was me clenching my teeth while I slept)

20. My most favorite sounds in the world are crickets on a quiet night and train whistles.



Hope you enjoyed reading facts about me! It honestly took me about a week to come up with 20 things about myself!

The meaning behind your blog name

Well, this is fairly simple. I sat here for a very long time trying to think of a name. Everything I could come up with was already taken and I didn't just want some random blog name. I wanted it to represent something in my life. 
My boyfriend and I love going places. We sometimes would drive for hours just to get someplace we've never been! Going out and exploring is one of the main things we do together.

So when I came across this quote- Drive until you lose the road. (I think it may be from a song), It just fit! I didn't want to use the whole quote as its quite long so I shortened it to Lose the road which I think still sounds okay!
So thats it. Thats where my name comes from! My love of getting lost in the world and having Craig with me.

Vanilla Chai Tea



Bolthouse Farms Vanilla Chai Tea
I just purchased this drink last night and I loved it so much I had to share it with you.

My boyfriend has been buying the juices made by these guys for a while now but I was never really a fan. The juice is kind of thick. Last night we were getting a few groceries and he wandered over to the selection of Bolthouse juices. This caught my eye.

First I noticed that its lactose & dairy free. The second thing I noticed was that its soy based. I do not like soy milk at all so I was kind of thrown off by it. Also, I don't like tea.

I have no idea why I even bought it knowing I didn't like either of those things but I did.

The first sip was a little weird but after that I couldn't get enough. It's delicious!

Its made of brewed green tea, soy protein, chai spices and vanilla.

If you're looking for a new drink I highly recommend these. Any of the flavours really, they're all good for you!

The bottle says it comes from Bakersfield, CA so i'm sure you can get these in the states also.

Something you crave a lot


Chocolate.

Probably the most common food craving there is. But its definitely the thing I crave most.

I have a second craving though. Its kind of strange, but I crave seafood A LOT. I don't know why.


Especially lobster.

I also really love scallops, mussels, shrimp, pretty much anything that comes from the sea.
What do you crave the most?

Your Celebrity Crush


Jared Leto.
Need I say more?

He's been my favorite since the very first time I watched My So-Called Life. He's an amazing actor and also has a band called 30 Seconds to Mars. You can see my post here.
To name a few movies he's been in- Requiem for a Dream, Fight Club, Lord of War and the newest Dallas Buyers Club. If you haven't watched any of these, I suggest you do!

New Look!

Winterized blog!

I know its kind of early and I was going to wait until at least Dec 1st to change the look of my blog but I just couldn't help myself. I'm excited for winter!
A lot of people hate seeing winter come but personally I love it. I almost prefer it. Almost.
While it does get extremely cold here at times during winter I'm not one for the heat. At least I can layer on the clothing while its cold.

Things I love most about winter :
-Colder weather
-Snow! I think snow is so beautiful
-Winter activities ( skating, snowman building) Also, I will learn to snowboard this year.
-Hats, scarves and boots
-Snowstorms usually mean cancelled school/work
-And of course Christmas!

Hope you enjoy the new look!
Do you like winter?

A T.V show you're currently addicted to



I'm not exactly addicted to this show. Its just the one im currently watching the most of. I read the book a few months ago and loved it. When I found this show on Netflix I had to watch it. (The book is ten times better then the show). Its alright though! I think they cancelled it. Maybe not..

You favorite musician and why?



My all time favorite band is 30 Seconds to Mars. I started listening to them when I was 14 years old and that was it. They've been my favorite band for 10 years! I have to say their newest album isn't really the best but I still like it. 
Honestly, the only reason I found out about this band is because of Jared Leto. He's the lead singer. I was watching My So Called Life, my 14 year old self fell in love so I googled him lol! I saw that he had a band so I listened to some of the songs and I loved it.
Even though Jared Leto is still my favorite celebrity, had I found this band another way, it would still be my favorite. 
I'm not sure why. 
You should try them out!

Since I wont be showing a photo of the town I live in I thought I'd share some random photos of Nova Scotia.

What's in your makeup bag



This is where I store all of my makeup. For now. Its just a little bag that came with a Vera Wang Princess perfume set Craig bought me a while ago. (My most favorite perfume of all time). 



I'll admit, I don't own a lot of makeup. I don't wear too much. Besides that I'm not too great at putting it on myself lol

1. Nail Polish- I just keep all of my nail polish in my makeup bag for now. Craig is supposed to make me a nail polish shelf once we move. 

2. Hair elastics and bobby pins- Pretty self explanatory 

3. Tweezers

4. Ready Set Gorgeous Foundation- I wear shade 105 Classic Ivory because i'm a ghost. I've been using this foundation for a little over a month now and I really like it. It doesn't give the most amazing coverage but I think its alright.

5. L.A Girl Blush- Shade BL558 Just Pinched. I've never heard of this brand before. My mom actually just picked this up for me a couple of days ago from the drugstore because my old blush was broken in tiny pieces. I've used it once already and it seems fine. I like it.

6. Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Highlighting Concealer- The shade I use is Ivory. I loved this when I first bought it. After a while though I realized its not really that great. I'll probably continue buying it for a while though just because I get comfortable with certain makeup.

7. Rimmel London Eyeliner Pencil- Just a regular eyeliner pencil in the color Jet Black. I hate this eyeliner. I don't know why. It rubs off super easy and it breaks quite easy as well. I bought a new eyeliner not long ago and lost it a few days later. I must go buy a new one. 

8. Lush Honey Trap Lip Balm- I don't use this at all. I don't like the texture of it or the smell for that matter. I'm very picky with what I use on my lips. I don't know why I keep it, but I do lol


That was my makeup bag! Hope you enjoyed it.

Also, you may be wondering why I have no mascara or eyeshadows. I'm allergic to all mascara. I used to wear it every single day but after high school I stopped. I have polyps behind my right eye ( has to do with sinuses) and every day I would suffer from extreme headaches and eventually the lid above my eye would swell. I've tried all kinds of brands. All the hypoallergenic kinds. The picture in my About Me i'm wearing the Organic Wear mascara. While it didn't make my eye swell I did start getting a headache all around my eyes shortly after applying it.
It sucks cause I love mascara. Oh well!
For the lack of eyeshadow, well, eyeshadow would probably just look silly with no mascara!

I won't be able to get to an actual Cora's today to take a photo of it so this will have to do!
Cora's is amazing! It's an all day breakfast restaurant. Well not all day. They are only open until 3 normally. Your plate is usually overflowing with fruit and whatever else you ask for. 







This is what I always get. The chicken salad sandwich with no cheese. I alway get fruit on the side with mine though instead of soup.

Weight




I wasn't going to talk about this on here but I figure maybe if I actually put it out there for others to see I might actually do something about my weight.
I have been struggling with my weight for a few years now. Im not saying i'm obese or even extremely overweight but I am considered overweight for my height.
While I'm not comfortable confessing my current weight at the moment I will tell you that my goal is to lose 15 pounds by the end of December.
Im not someone who obsesses over the way I look. My one and only reason for wanting to lose weight is for me. I want to feel good about my body. I want to go to my closet and put whatever I want on and at least feel comfortable.
Feeling healthy is another big reason though. Knowing that I'm eating the right food and exercising will probably help me feel really happy.
So my plan is to try to eat healthier. No junk food for the most part. I have read that some people exercise and eat healthy 6 days of the week and then have that one cheat day. I can't tell you right now if that method is effective. We shall see.
I signed up for my fitness pal. Not to track my food or exercise but just for someplace to track my weight. I'm going to add my little ticker onto my blog page. Like I said I'm not going to obsess over this. I'm just taking it one day at a time.

A photo of the item you last purchased




I bought this eos hand moisturizer last night. My hands have been incredibly dry for the last week or so with the colder weather. I've never used eos products before, not even the lip balms. I found this for only $1.99 at the drugstore so I picked it up. I used it as soon as I sat in the car and I have to say my hands felt instantly smoother. This is the berry scent.

Book Review: The Other Story






I just finished reading this book last night so I thought I would write a little review on it.
It's called The Other Story by Tatiana de Rosnay. It's about a man called Nicolas who wrote one book and became a best selling author. The book overview on the inside cover tells of family secrets that he digs up and then puts behind him only for those secrets to resurface years later.

I can tell you that overview is very misleading. * Spoiler * You never actually find out what the secret really is! I thought by the end of the book I would say " ahhh so thats the secret " but that never happened.  I mean you find out bits and pieces but you never learn the actual truth.

Aside from that the book isn't even very interesting. It is very repetitive and is loaded with unnecessary information. Two whole pages were dedicated to how other authors wrote their novels.

I just didn't like it. With that being said I will not be searching for the next Tatiana de Rosnay novel.

Your dream wedding




Im one of the very few girls who do not have a dream wedding fantasy. I never want to get married. Neither does Craig so it works out great!
Actually we have talked about it and this is what we decided we are going to do.
Someday, im not sure when, Craig will buy me a ring. One he has let me pick out. I will wear this ring on my ring finger like other girls. 
After that we will both get bands. Wear them like any other married couple. Only we wont be married. 
This probably sounds silly to some people and you're probably thinking "if you're doing all that then why not just get married?". Well, we love the idea of being with each other, we don't mind showing people we are together ( the rings ). We just do not like the idea of marriage. 

In my own opinion I think relationships become too stressful once people get married. Most times, and again this is my own opinion, I don't think men truly want to get married (some do). I think most men feel pressured into it because their girlfriends want it. 

On top of that there are other small reasons why I never want to be married. Its way too expensive. Divorce is even more expensive. Besides that I hate being the center of attention. I feel too awkward.


So thats my dream wedding post. If you liked it you can follow me on Bloglovin !

A photo of an animal you'd love to keep as a pet


In case you couldn't tell... thats a wolf. 
I love wolves. They're my all time favorite animal. Having one as a pet would be incredible.

With that being said there is a dog breed out there that looks pretty much identical to wolves. They are called Native American Indian Dogs. This is what one looks like:



I am allergic to animal fur. Every kind of fur..from dogs to horses to goats. Apparently, these dogs are supposed to be the most hypoallergenic. They only shed once a year. Now I've been around other dogs that are "hypoallergenic" and most times I still break out in hives when I touch them. 
I think I'd risk hives everyday to own one of these dogs.
There aren't any breeders around here with them. The closest being the U.S. Someday we'll take a trip to one of these breeders so I can test my allergies with them. 

Heres a link with some information about these dogs in case you're interested!
