To Close to Christmas Naughtyness!!!

OK so i was naughty....just a little bit.

I bought stuff for myself right before Christmas.

How could I not. It was a Cyber Monday sale on AMAZON....I LOVE amazon. Quick shipping, great prices, and AMAZING customer service.

So what did I get you ask?

We picked up Star Trek and Star Trek Into Darkness (YES.... I LOVE STAR TREK. Can't help it), Despicable me (the first one) and the X-MEN Trilogy. All movies one needs in there arsenal collection. Since then we have also picked Simpsons Christmas, and a Christmas compilation of all the old originals......Which we have to exchange the next time were in the city, cause the box was broke :(

Christmas Memories

Christmas is definitely high up there on my favourite
holidays list. I do love Christmas, and it officially starts for me when the local parade night happens. This year Nov 30th is the day. While not big and spectacular, this little town has some decent heart, that they put into there parades each and every year.

These horses are stunning aren't they!? I wish I had more to show you, but do to camera problems. This is the only thing that came out decently.

Veet® Easywax™ Electrical Roll-On -- First impressions Review

I decided to do a little bit of a first impressions for the new Veet Easywax Electrical Roll-On Kit.

This kit will run you anywhere from $19-$26 roughly, and comes fully equipped with everything you need to wax.

  • A self heating device and its cap
  • A 50ml roll-on wax refill, specially designed for use on legs & arms
  • 12 reusable and washable fabric strips
  • 4 Perfect Finish Wipes
  • A base to hold the device and electrical cable
Starter kit available for legs and body. Two Easy Wax refills are available, one for the legs and arms and one with a smaller roll-on head, specially designed for bikini line and underarms.


  • simple and sleek design
  • easy to use
  • cartridges are easily installed in device
  • wax strips are washable and reusable 
  • comes with aftercare wipes for clean up and soothing
  • Unscented


  • Heating time of the unit is not the recommended 20 mins. I recommend more along the lines of close to an hour.
  • It does not seem to remove the hairs that easily, causing me to have to go back over the same area several times.
  •  The device itself gets kinda toasty to be holding

For someone like myself who has waxed, shaved, and used depilatory creams over the years. I found this wax system to be way to time consuming compared to the other waxing products I have used in the past. 

After a couple attempts at improving my experience with it. I still come to ill results and I don't think it works that well. I feel tethered by the plug keeping at correct temperature, and it doesn't seem to have the strength to pull even the majority of the hairs out.

A huge disappointment for me as I love the Veet brand.

REVIEW-Burt's Bees® Intense Hydration

Hi guys,

I'm doing a review for BzzAgent today. I received the Intense Hydration Cream Cleanser and the Intense Hydration Night Cream for review from BzzAgent.

Here is what they say about this line.

"Clary Sage, a remarkable botanical that thrives in its harsh environment because of its ability to retain moisture, is the inspiration behind Burt’s Bees Intense Hydration, our natural ode to soft, supple, revitalized skin and our best natural anti-aging solution. Our cream cleanser leaves your skin incredibly soft while our day lotion, eye cream and night cream help reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Add the treatment mask for an immediate dose of hydration to give your skin a revitalized look."

So..Let's see I have combo skin type, but I also have psoriasis that has now chosen to creep onto my face from my scalp. Something like this, I figure can't hurt anything. Maybe it is like Moo Cream, a very heavy moisturizer I use on occasion. The first night I only tried the cleanser, just to see what would happen. The smell, is absolutely delicious. So I washed my face as usual, and didn't put any other products on afterwards. I went to bed and woke up the next day. It was clearly not TO MUCH for my face as I had no new breakouts. I didn't find that any of my "parched" spots on my face were cleared up, but I definitely don't expect that after just one use. So the next night I washed my face with the cleanser and I put the night cream on. The night cream was WAY to heavy for my skin. I didn't feel like it sunk in well enough before bed, and I was right. The next morning I woke up with VERY greasy skin, to the point where I had to wash my face twice and switch out my pillow  case.

Two days later though and I am still using the cleanser. It doesn't get off my makeup very well, but I use my makeup remover (which dries out my skin in the winter)and then this cleanser, and it works well for me. I'm starting to notice the spots around my mouth and nose are starting to get better slowly which is an area I tend to focus my cleanser on normally. I will keep you updated and let you know how it is going.

Side part: I did not get paid for this post or for trying this line. I get the product for free to give my opinion on through BzzAgent

Back to the Kitchen with a Bread Pudding Recipe

I haven't been back her in quite some time. Now with the wedding done, I'm coming back with a new twist. I LOVE TO COOK AND BAKE. So I want to show you what I'm cooking.

Starting with my current addiction. Bread pudding was rediscover when we went to celebrate my husbands birthday at the Mandarin. I have been wanting to make some ever since.

                                        <3 BREAD PUDDING <3


 6 slices of day old bread
2 tbsp melted butter (margarine works for me)
1/2 cups of whatever you choose to put in ( I have made it plain, with choc/mint chips, and apple pieces)
4 eggs, beaten
2 cups milk ( I also used carnation canned evaporated milk the last time. It works but I would suggest 2 1/2 cups if using that)
3/4 cup white sugar
1tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla extract


<3 Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C)
<3 Break bread into small pieces, and place in a 8 inch baking pan. Pour  melted butter/margarine over and mix well. Sprinkle you optional topping choice on.
<3 In a mixing bowl, combine the eggs, milk (or substitute) white sugar, cinnamon, and vanilla extract together. Pour it all over the bread, and push the bread down so it will soak up all the deliciousness.
<3 Bake in the preheated oven for up to 45 mins ( I only need it in for about 30 to 35 mins).

<3 It's done when you press it and it springs back<3

Mmmmmm mmmmmm GOOOD :D

It's The Crazy Life Week

This week absolutely exhausted me. We spent the majority of it at friends and away from home. While I love our friends, I don't do well with being away from home for very long.

It was so hot out I had to place ice cubes in my cats bowl, to keep the water cold.
 Our first little harvest of strawberries. They were so super yummy too :D

 After having my coupon binder stolen. My couponing community and friends got together and helped with this. I am so thankful to them all.

 It just keeps growing and growing. I love it :D I hope it never stops. The second year is supposed to be way better too.

 These are the green onion tests I was doing. The bottom plants have now died however.

 The beds downstairs. A bunny ate one of our pepper plants, but it's growing back beautifully. Everything else is doing really well also.
 I wish you could see all the flowers on the left hand tomatoe plants. I'm so happy they should produce well this year :D
 I made a strawberry sorbet/ice treat for us one day, and it was absolutely delicious.

 Three out of 4 of my new nail polishes from Julep Maven (if you wanna check out this mani pedi monthly subscription, click HERE) It's a mani pedi subscription that lets you choose different nail polishes and mani pedi product pkgs every month for only 19.99.

Lastly, This is what I have currently been working on for the wedding. The corsage straps for my mother and Aunty. A smokey coloured swarovski crystal centre and pearled white bead border.

Well That was my week. I will see you back here next weekend :D

The Ups and Downs of a Week

This week was quite a whirl wind. We were barely home :(

I worked in my studio reorganizing it, which lead to new product packaging half way through cleaning, Then we were in my home town making my bust form for my wedding dress, so I don't have to be home ALL the time while it's being made. Here's what we did LOL

I never got a picture of the finished piece LOL. But that was our Saturday. We also went into a neighboring town to do a bit of shopping as well.

This is Kiki, my folks new pup. She's absolutely precious, I love hanging out with her, and so does Matt. She sure loves him too. Lays on her back right beside him on the couch while he pets her belly.

I was in the city for the better part of the week so I didn't get any pictures of my plants and there progress, but I will update on Thursday with some pictures. Everything is growing so amazingly. We've already harvest a few of our strawberries and green onions. I now have a yogurt container completely full of green onion. I now need to find some good recipe's to use them up LOL. Our beefsteak plat now has flowers starting which look amazing :D.

So I'll see you again Thursday and show you how the rest of this week has went. Hopefully it will be a  lot more exciting LOL.
