Ipsy Glam Bag August 2015 (First Impression)

Image
Yeah I'm late on my first impressions for August's glam bag. Honestly, I did not film a video of myself unbagging it but that's because I haven't really felt like filming videos anymore. I've been quite taken with my blog and other writing ventures. So first impression videos are going to have to take a backseat.

So for the month of August the theme is prep school. Okay concept but it is cliche. If all of you don't know Ipsy is a beauty subscription service that for $10 you can receive 4-5 beauty products that are either full-sized or deluxe-sized. It delivers both in the States and Canada. The only problem for us Candians is that it actually costs us $20 Canadian. But nonetheless you always get products that are worth more than the $20 or $10 that you paid for.

August Glam Bag:
The bag actually matches the skirt of Michelle Phan. The bag reminds me of Cruella de vil from 101 Dalmatians. I do like the opening of the …

Deadly Messengers By: Susan May (Book Review)

Image
((I received this book from the author to review. I am in no way being compensated for my review))

This is the story of Kendall Jennings a freelance writer suddenly turned reporter having a hard time keeping up with her bills. In her quaint low crime city mass murders are occurring and she is the go to reporter for the job. The problem is that the killers are not killers. If anything they are go-lucky people with a loving environment. Except they all have one connection. Would Kendall be able to find out what that connection is? Add that in with a past that still affects her present. Can Kendall continue writing these massacres without bringing up her troubling past? You'll have to read to find out.
I usually have a hard time reading e-books which is the form that I received this book in. I have a hard time reading them because I'm old school and I love holding a book in my hands instead of my phone. I liked Kendall because she is a character we can all relate to. She has a t…

Turning 19! 2015

On the fifth I celebrated my 19th birthday. Luckily enough my birthday fell on a Saturday so I got to celebrate the day of. What I decided to do was spend the day with my family (mom and sister) and spend the night at a bar with my friends. 
It was a wonderful and eye opening day. I got a bunch of happy birthday messages and some from people I didn't expect any from. It was an eye opener because I actually got to see how people would act with me. Some shocked me, some were really kind, one person truly showed me their colors and not in a good way.
I had so much fun spending time with my mom and sister. Before leaving to start the day my mom made us breakfast and then we headed out into Montreal. Once in Montreal we went to Starbucks and I got my birthday treat which was soooo good. I'm actually going to be writing a review on the drink so stay tuned for that!
Next we headed out to IKEA where I got a Alex 5 drawer unit in chocolate brown. And no I obviously didn't pick out …

Binge Watching The Hunger Games

Image
I never was into The Hunger Games and all the hype and excitement of the movies. The first time I ever heard of The Hunger Games was about a few years ago and I kept receiving recommendations to read the series. And I read the description of the first book and I thought to myself this story sounds horrible. Obviously I didn't read the series so when I heard it was being produced as a film franchise I could not have cared less. Everyone at school was talking about it and I'm in the corner not paying mind to it.

So here I am years after the first movie was released and guess what was on TV last week? Yup you guessed right. The Hunger Games was on and I only got the chance to watch part of it because that day I was busy.  Believe it or not I actually really loved the scenes that I got to watch. So earlier this week I watched all three movies. Whoa weird transition, right? I was simply drawn in by the movies and ironically the plot. 
I do have to admit I have a girl crush on Jenn…
