Motivational Monday


I need some motivation today. As I sit here watching the time go by, knowing full well that I have to be at work in 30 minutes and I haven't even brushed my teeth yet.

I honestly don't even care that I'm now going to have to rush to get ready.

This quote really stuck with me today. Because there is something I have been thinking a lot about.

Actually, this is something I've been thinking about since I was around 14? What I want for my life.

What I need for my life.

There is something inside of me that absolutely loathes working for other people. Which is a problem because I have to work. I feel such anger about it sometimes. Its not that i'm rebellious or anything. I just really can't stand having someone tell me what to do. I don't like taking orders from people. I never have, I probably never will.

I've always wanted my own business. To be able to work for myself doing something I love.

The only problem was....I never knew what I wanted to do.

Until now.

I don't want to talk much about it yet. Not until I figure some more stuff out. But i've been thinking about it a lot recently and I'm becoming more excited each day. It may take a while to get everything in order but i'll be patient.

All I know is that I am not going to stop working towards it. I need this.

The dread I feel inside every morning while getting ready to head into work is too much sometimes.

Speaking of....I now have 20 minutes to get to work.

I suppose I should get ready.

I hope you all have a wonderful day and the sun is shining for you!

Final Garcinia Cambogia Update

Yes, that says final. I am no longer going to be taking the Garcinia Cambogia. I previously mentioned that I would be taking it for a month. I have only taken it for 2 and a half weeks.

The reason i'm stopping is because at the beginning of this week I started to feel a little strange. Every now and then I would feel my chest kind of..flutter? Its really hard to explain. But I was a little afraid it was my heart like jiggin out or something.

Then on Wednesday I had this really sharp pain on my right side and it hurt even more any time I would bend or put any kind of pressure on it.

These things may not have anything at all to do with the Garcinia Cambogia but I wasn't taking any chances. The fluttering and pain has stopped since I stopped taking them.

The other reason i'm done taking them is because I didn't really feel like they were doing anything.

Here is my weight and measurements at the beginning and end of the 2.5 weeks.

STARTING WEIGHT

159 lbs

STARTING INCHES

Chest: 41.5 in
Waist: 34.5 in
Hips: 38.5 in
Legs: 23 in


WEIGHT AFTER 2.5 WEEKS ON GC

157 lbs

INCHES AFTER 2.5 WEEKS ON GC

Chest: 40 3/4 in
Waist: 32.5 in
Hips: 37 3/4 in
Legs: 22 1/4 in

So overall I have lost 2 lbs. In almost 3 weeks I think thats a little low. 

On my Chest I have lost 3/4 of an inch in total
On my Waist I have lost 2 inches in total
On my Hips I have lost 3/4 of an inch in total
On my Legs I have lost 3/4 of an inch in total

I'm pretty satisfied with the inches but in all honesty I was already starting to lose a bit in the inches since I have started walking/trying to eat better.

In the end I say save your money.

I really don't believe all of these other videos by people saying they've lost like 40 lbs in a month on Garcinia Cambogia.
I think I would have gotten close to the same results anyway if I hadn't been taking it.

Sunkissed Summer Tag!


Since its now officially Summer...I thought i'd start off with a summer tag! 

1. WHEN DO/DID YOU GET OUT OF SCHOOL?
Oh, my days of school are long over. 
I actually really miss school.

2. BEACHES OR POOLS?
So hard to choose! I love being on a beach but I also really love lounging around in a pool.

3. ARE YOU GOING ON ANY SUMMER VACATIONS? IF NOT, WHAT'S YOUR DREAM SUMMER VACATION?
We're taking a small trip to Prince Edward Island this summer! 

4. S'MORES OR ICE CREAM?
Definitely ice cream. 

5. WHATS YOUR MOST FUN SUMMER MEMORY?
Just thinking back to every summer I had as a kid. You don't realize how awesome it is until you're a "grown up" and summers are pretty much the exact same as every other season!

6. DOES YOUR SKIN TAN OR BURN?
Usually neither! I used to get soo dark when I was a kid. Now i'll get a little sunburn and then it just vanishes. Forever pale.

7. HOW DO YOU WEAR YOUR HAIR IN THE SUMMER?
Same as always. Don't I hate doing my hair in the summer though! I cannot stand sweating while I blow dry my hair! 

8. FAVORITE SUMMER NAIL POLISH?
Anything bright! I really like the essie shade 'Meet Me at Sunset' though! Its a really pretty orange.

9. WOULD YOU RATHER SPEND A DAY OUTSIDE IN A POOL OR INSIDE WATCHING NETFLIX?
Pool! I love the water. Netflix will be there at night.

10. SUNGLASSES OR HATS?
I normally never wear either. This summer though i'm making both of those things a necessity!

11. WHAT IS YOUR SONG OF THE SUMMER?
Pretty much anything by MGMT. I don't know why but I think of Summer whenever I listen to them. I must have started listening to them in the summer or something!

12. DO YOU HAVE A SUMMER BUCKET LIST? IF SO, SHARE SOME THINGS ON THE LIST.
No I don't really have a list. I just want to swim as often as I can, go on at least 2 little trips and just be happy this summer!

13. BIKINIS, TANKINIS OR ONE PIECES?
Well, right now its a one piece but i'm working on getting my bikini bod haha

14. MUST HAVE SUMMER MAKEUP PRODUCT?
Concealer! 

15. WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE THING ABOUT SUMMER?
Long days that turn into beautiful warm evenings. The smell of fresh cut grass and bon fires. Lazy days at the beach. Everything.


HOPE YOU ENJOYED!
WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE THING ABOUT SUMMER!?

Garcinia Cambogia 2nd Week Update

Last Week's Weight: 158

This Week's Weight: 160.4


Last Week's Inches:
Chest: 41in
Waist: 34 in
Hips: 38 in
Legs: 22.5 in

This Week's Inches:
Chest: 40 3/4 in
Waist: 33 1/4 in
Hips: 38 in
Legs: 22 1/4 in


Well...

I have to say, i'm a little- okay a lot- disappointed.

As you can see I have gained 2.4 pounds since last week. Although I did lose a tiny little bit in the inches.

I'll be completely honest and tell you that I haven't really been doing that great exercise wise this week but I have been doing better at watching what I am eating.

Craig keeps trying to convince me i'm gaining muscle but i'm finding it a little hard to believe that myself.

I honestly feel like giving up.

But I won't.

Here's to a better week!

Oh Happy Days #4


 Finding out that I lost half an inch from everywhere! (chest, waist, hips and legs!) Doesn't seem like much but its definitely progress! :D

 Getting two beauty boxes in the mail this week! I finally received my May box on Monday and then my June box came on Thursday.

 I went  to see Jurassic World!! I'm a huge Jurassic Park fan and I was so excited to see the new Jurassic World movie. I really, really liked it! There may have been a few small changes I would have made but overall I think the movie was fantastic!

♥ I went for my first ride on Craig's bike! Even though I was pretty much terrified the whole time, i'm still  happy I did it! I've never ridden on the back of a bike before so this was a first for me.

♥ My first swim of the year! It was only in a small little pool down at my sisters but I had a lot of fun swimming around with her and my niece! I was so happy to see that my niece wasn't the least bit afraid of the water! She was hopping in and out of the pool all by herself :)



Say hello to Danielle! The face behind Underland to Wonderland! This is by far one of my absolute favorite blogs to read! You'll find an awesome assortment of series on her blog like her Exploring Edinburgh posts, Inked and Awesome (my favorite series of hers!) and not too mention her incredible photography posts! Seriously, she's got some talent! If you haven't already make sure you check out her blog! Really. Go now. 




WHAT MADE YOU HAPPY THIS WEEK?

ps happy first day of summer!!

Beauty Box 5 - Bon Voyage!

I received my second BB5! Let's see what we got in June's box!



Simple Skincare Micellar Cleansing Water Sample Wipe
So first I got this little teensy tiny sample face wipe. I know its teensy tiny in there because I have already used it. It was the smallest square of a wipe i've ever seen which I thought was odd because I was barely able to wipe my entire face with it. 


LOL Rotational Eye Shadow ( full size )
I don't normally wear eyeshadow but maybe i'll give these a shot!

Nails Inc. Nail Polish #214 Bruton Street ( full size )
As you can probably tell, I used this nail polish straight away. It seemed really nice when I first put it on. The only problem I have with it is the fact that I put it on at about 6:00 pm and the next morning when I woke up the nail polish was completely off two finger nails! I don't know how or what I did during the night lol but it was gone! It says it retails for $9.50 a bottle. I definitely wouldn't pay that knowing how easily it chips!



Herbal Essences Body Wash
I never even knew herbal essences made body wash! I haven't used this yet but it smells pretty good!


Urban Decay Perversion Mascara
I was most excited for this one! Even though i'm allergic to mascara, I like trying out different kinds to 'hopefully' find one that doesn't give me headaches or make my eye swell! I'll be testing this one out pronto!


I was really happy with this months box! If only for the Urban Decay mascara!

Have you ever tried any of these products?

Beauty Haul

Just a small haul post for you today! I've recently done a little shopping in the beauty section...


Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge
Finally purchased one of these! Review soon.

Garnier Lift Firming & Regenerating Anti-Wrinkle Moisturizer
I've been searching for a really good daily and nightly moisturizer for a while now and i've had my eye on this set. Never too early to start fighting off those wrinkles!

Live Clean Monoi Oil Body Wash
I was just in need of some new body wash because I ran out of my current one. Just grabbed this one and bought it because I liked how it smelled. When I got it home I realized its SLS and Paraben free! Plus 98% plant derived! Exactly what I had been wanting in a body wash for a while now! 


Wet'n'Wild Coverall Powder
In the blogging world i've noticed just about every single person sets their foundation with powder. Thought I might give it a try so I just picked up this cheapy one.

Cover Girl BB Cream Tinted Moisturizer
Heard so many great things about BB creams and since I never tried one before, I thought it was about time! Review on this soon!



HAVE YOU TRIED ANY OF THESE PRODUCTS? WHAT WERE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THEM?

June 17, 2015

I'm going to be fun to be around today.....



I am in such a bad mood today! I'm well aware of this bad mood and i'm even trying to make light of it...but yet i'm still in a bad mood!

I should be a big ball of sunshine today. I had about 10 hours of sleep last night. Woke up early feeling good. But no.

Cranky Renee has to show her face today. Actually, Cranky Renee has been popping up quite a bit recently and she's starting to get on my nerves...

Worst part is, its only 7:38 am and I still have to go to work yet.

Hopefully I can shake this bad mood soon.

On another note..I hope YOU all have a wonderful day and I hope the sun is shining for you!


WHAT DO YOU DO TO SHAKE A BAD MOOD?

Beauty Box 5 | May 2015 ( My First Beauty Box!!)


Finally.

I ordered a one year subscription to Beauty Box 5 on May 21st. The website said if you order by the 21st of the month you'd get that months box. After some time had passed I was convinced I wouldn't be getting a May box. I checked my mailbox today and this little guy was just sitting in there. I thought it was June's box but when I looked at the package it said May. (I so hope June's box doesn't take as long to get here!)

So, i'm sorry i'm showing a May box all the way in the middle of June but i'm so excited to have finally received one I just had to share it!


AHAVA 3 SAMPLE PACK 
In this 3 sample pack I got a hand cream, a moisturizer and a purifying mud mask. These products are packed with active dead sea minerals and other skin-healthy ingredients. This is the product i'm most excited for!

BIO SWISS STAINLESS STEEL MINI TWEEZER
Just a small set of tweezers. Comes with a little travel tube which is nice!


COASTAL SCENTS SYNTHETIC EYESHADOW BRUSH (full size)
Looks like a nice brush. I don't wear eyeshadow so I guess this is a little useless to me. Who knows, maybe i'll try out eyeshadow some day!

STYLI-STYLE HIGHLIGHTER STICK (full size)
In the colour Champagne. Now I was a little disappointed when I saw this. Only because I went and watched a review of the May Box on Youtube a few days ago (thinking I wasn't getting one anyway) and the girl in the video received a Blush stick. I thought it looked so cool and I really wanted one! After reading my little card they give you I realized you could have gotten either or. Oh well!


DERMALOGICA ACTIVE MOIST
An oil-free moisturizer. I've actually heard some great things about this moisturizer so i'm pretty excited to try it!

So that was my first beauty box! Was I satisfied with it? Meh, half and half. Some things I'm really excited to try while others don't really interest me.

I will be trying out these products and will be doing reviews on most of them so keep your eyes peeled for that!

ARE YOU SUBSCRIBED TO BB5? IF SO, WERE YOU SATISFIED WITH YOUR MAY BOX?

Garcinia Cambogia 1st Week Update*

Last week I mentioned I was starting Garcinia Cambogia with the hopes of losing a bit of weight.
Like I said, I'll be doing weekly updates every Monday and then one big recap of the entire month!

A BIT OF MY WEIGHT HISTORY

I never had a problem with my weight until about two years after I graduated High School. My weight always stayed around 125. So by the time I turned 20 I started noticing I was gaining weight little by little. When I turned 22 I was in the process of doing my college course work. I had to do all of my work at home, basically had to teach myself everything and I was really stressed out 90% of the time. I wasn't allowed to work more than 8 hours a week or else I would be denied the help of a student loan.

SO add being completely stressed out about my course and not having very much income with only Craig working to barely ever leaving the house and that equals me gaining A LOT more weight in a short amount of time. I'll get into my current weight soon.

FIRST WEEK OF TAKING GARCINIA CAMBOGIA

Every day I took 2 pills before breakfast and 2 pills before supper.

Monday- I noticed I had to pee a lot. I also needed to use the bathroom after every meal I ate. ( and by use the bathroom, yes, I do mean #2.) It wasn't diarrhea or anything. It was just normal. Which I actually thought was a pretty great benefit. I did not feel any sense of fullness nor did I feel any kind of boost in energy (two things the pills claim to do)
Exercise- Half hour walk/jog

Tuesday- Didn't have to pee as much this day but I still used the bathroom after every meal. Again, no feeling of fullness or energy boost.
Exercise- Half hour walk/jog

Wednesday- I felt terrible this day. I felt huge and bloated. I no longer felt the need to use the bathroom after meals. No sense of fullness or energy.
Exercise- Half hour walk/jog / 5 pull-ups (with Craig's help)

Thursday- Started my day off feeling really constipated (sorry TMI). It let up as the day went on though. Still feeling big and bloated. A really crappy day all around.
Exercise- None

Friday- Using the bathroom normalized. (has stayed that way the rest of the week). Still feeling a little bloated.
Exercise- Half hour walk/jog in the morning / half hour walk at night

Saturday- Bloating has gone down a little. Just feel normal now. Feeling how I felt before starting Garcinia Cambogia. Using the bathroom is normal.
Exercise- None

Sunday- Feeling normal. Bloated feeling has passed.
Exercise- None


Now I'd like to point out that I purposely didn't do much exercise this whole week. Also, my food choices were pretty horrible. I just wanted to see if the pills did anything for me on their own. Going for walks and poor eating habits are the norm for me so I didn't do anything this week to enhance the pills in any way. It was just a normal week for me. 

With that being said, let's get into this week's results:

Starting Weight: 159 lbs

1st Week Using Garcinia Cambogia Weight: 158 lbs

Starting Inches: 
Chest: 41.5 in
Waist: 34.5 in
Hips: 38.5 in
Legs: 23 in

1st Week Using GC Inches:
Chest: 41 in
Waist: 34 in
Hips: 38 in
Legs: 22.5 in

Didn't lose nearly as much as I expected but I guess that's not too bad considering I ate really terrible food all week and barely exercised! I think if I didn't have the GC I probably would have gained a pound or two. I'm really excited about those inches though!! half an inch off everywhere!
Overall I think im pretty happy with the results for this week.

So now i'm starting week 2! From now on I will be watching what I eat AND having a good workout everyday. Let's see if there's much of a difference!

What I Got For My Birthday!

Hellooo Everyone! In case you didn't know, Monday was my 25th birthday...eek 25!
Today I'm sharing a 'what I got for my birthday' post with you! I always enjoy reading other bloggers 'what I got for my birthday, what I got for Christmas, etc' posts so I thought i'd share mine :)



From my lovely boyfriend Craig I got my Nixon watch!! I've only been wanting this watch for months now and I was so happy to see that he got it for me!
He also picked me up this wonderful smelling perfume called Crush. Its from boathouse. It smells florally but fruity at the same time? I can't describe it but its really nice!



From my sister I received these two awesome tanks! Really cool patterns on the front and lace on the back!- I love me some lace!
She also got me this Essie glitter polish called Peak Of Chic!
And from my niece I got this adorable 'I Love You To The Moon and Back' necklace :) I just love it!


And from the money I received from my mother and brother I picked up the Babyliss Pro hair straightener! I was in desperate need of a new straightener and this one is amazing!

So that's what I got for my 25th birthday.....god it sounds so weird to say 25! I'm so thankful for everything I have received :)

Hope you all have a wonderful day!

Products I Won't Buy Again



I'm always purchasing new products to test out in hopes of finding something that works great for me. Along the way I've come across quite a few products that just don't fit the bill.


Almay Smart Shade CC Cream
As soon as you apply this CC cream it looks & feels extremely greasy. 
....and stays that way.

Maybelline Fit Me! Hydrate + Smooth Foundation
I've heard really great things about the Fit me! Matte foundation but when I saw this Hydrate + Smooth I thought it might work better for me considering I have some dry areas around my face. This foundation isn't too terrible. It is a little on the greasy side but I did wear it for a few weeks. Its just not something that wowed me and I probably won't ever buy it again.

L'Oreal True Match LUMI Foundation
Hate, hate...did I say hate? This foundation! 
I've never looked so greasy with a foundation before ( even worse than the Almay CC cream).
This made me look like I was constantly sweating ( not pretty ) and you can only imagine how it looked while I was actually sweating! 
I hear amazing reviews of the L'Oreal True Match foundation but I'm so hesitant in purchasing it because of my experience with the Lumi. 


Lush Veganese Conditioner
Terrible conditioner. 
You can read my review on it here.

Elf HD Lifting Concealer
Picked this up on a whim while I was at the grocery store. I think it was like 4 dollars? Really didn't like it. I think it made my under eye circles look even darker..

Maybelline Baby Skin Pore Eraser
Didn't really see any difference in my pores with this primer. (See results here)
I did find however, that my skin started breaking out after using this. 
So this definitely won't be purchased again!



HAVE YOU TRIED ANY OF THESE PRODUCTS? WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS?

Gear Up For Summer with Apparel Candy!

*This post is sponsored by Apparel Candy. All opinions are 100% my own.


Have you guys ever heard of the company Apparel Candy? If not, you're in for a real treat!

Basically they're a website where you can buy some of the cutest wholesale clothing for extremely affordable prices! Like...really affordable. They have lots of different pieces perfect for summer and I truly think there's something to suit everyone's style!

I put together my own wishlist after browsing their website!


1. Thin Long Sleeved Top- I'm definitely a sweater girl. With this being a wholesale company, you have to pretty much buy in "bulk". So to buy this sweater you'd have to purchase it in a pack of 6 which would come to $39.00. Amazing deal, as it would only be $6.50 a piece!

2. Aviator Sunglasses- These say that they're Mens on the website but I'd wear them! Love the colors! You get a pack of 12 for $27.00. Unit price $2.25.

3. White sweater with lace sleeves- Love shirts with lace! Same as the other top- pack of 6 for $39.00.

4. Sweetheart Dress- Love, love this dress!! I don't normally lean towards dresses but I think this one is so nice! Pack of 6 for $52.50. Unit price $8.75.

5. Camel woven stitch cross body bag- The great thing about the bags on their site is that you don't have to buy them in bulk! This bag only costs $7.50!!

6. Black halter dress- Another really cute dress I like. Pack of 6 for $54.00.


Not only do they have a great selection of wholesale tops, pants, and dresses- they also have tons of nail polish, cosmetics and some really awesome dupe fragrances.

I know the idea of buying in bulk might put some of you off- you're probably thinking why would I need 6 of those tops?

But this site would be ideal for, say you and your friends all like the same top, you could all go in on the top for a fraction of the cost! Just an idea!

Let me know your favorites from Apparel Candy!

Oh my lanta! I'm 25!!



Guess what guys!?

IT'S MY BIRTHDAY!!

I am officially a quarter of a century. Wow.

I always thought by the time I turned 25 I'd feel super grown up......nope.

I'm okay with that though. I want to hold on to this feeling for as long as I can.

ANYWAY

I didn't really do a whole lot today so I don't have any pictures to share. I went to work for most of my day. My boss made us ribs for lunch (we work in a kitchen- its not so weird) and she came out with a beautiful -and delicious- black forest cake! Yumm. A black forest cake is a rich chocolate cake with cherry sauce in the middle and on top with whipped cream! SO GOOD.

I came home and waited for my family and Craig to arrive. (Craig was on pizza duty)

The rest of the day we hung out and ate pizza and wings. 

I had a really great day :)

I may do a birthday haul soon (if you're interested!)

Anyone else notice Google on their birthday....




Pretty cool!


I HOPE YOU ALL HAD A WONDERFUL DAY!!

Garcinia Cambogia | A New Approach To Weight Loss

Those of you who have followed my blog for  a while now know that I am on a constant struggle journey to lose weight. For a little over a month now i've been "trying" to eat better and exercise more. I do see a slight difference in my body and I may have lost a pound or two but I just find it so hard.

Well, I have decided to take the plunge and purchase a bottle of Garcinia Cambogia.



If you're unaware of this product basically its a diet supplement.

BUT its supposedly the "safest" supplement for dieting. Now I'm usually the first one to turn my head away from anything resembling dieting pills or anything "un-natural" to help you lose weight but I have done a lot of reading up on these capsules and have watched a ton of videos on youtube.

They seem to have very little to no bad side effects. There have been some cases where they have cramping but I mean, I think thats to be expected. Any sort of dieting or cleansing pill will do such a thing.

The fact that the ingredient list is pretty small and I actually know most of these ingredients makes me feel a little better.

Medicinal Ingredients:
Chromium Picolinate
Potassium
Garcinia gummi-gutta ( Malabar tamarind ) fruit peel

Non-medicinal Ingredients:
Calcium hydroxycitrate
Vegetable Cellulose

What do Garcinia Cambogia capsules do?

The Malabar tamarind is supposed to temporarily increase satiety/feeling of fullness.
Chromium provides support for healthy glucose metabolism and also helps the body to metabolize carbohydrates and fats.

So, here we go I guess!

Today is my first day. I am probably going to give you weekly updates and then once I finish the month i'll do a total recap.

The bottle I bought is actually enough for 45 days but I'm only going to try it for a month.

ps; I am NOT sponsored in any way. I've purchased this bottle on my own and will give you 100% honest feedback!



Have you ever tried Garcinia Cambogia? If yes, did you see results? Were there any side effects?
If not, would you ever consider it?

Flashback Friday #31 - Zip-Lining!

November 13th/2010

We went to a place called Anchors Above Zipline Adventures. Its located in Pictou County.
This is Nova Scotia's first and biggest zipline!



Me and my brother waiting to go up


You have to walk up a huge hill to get to the top. 
Exhausting.


Getting strapped up


There I go...


The zipline is 1,100 feet long, 240 feet high and approximately 6 story's!
Then you hop on another zipline that is 900 feet long with a steep drop of 10 story's that brings you back down to the parking lot. 

So much fun!!

Craig took a video of himself on the zipline!


If you're ever in Nova Scotia you should definitely check this place out!



HAVE YOU EVER TRIED ZIP-LINING?
