I forgive myself for being emotional for a couple days. I’ve struggled a lot over the years with anxiety and depression, but I have learned how to cope with it and level myself out. The past year I haven’t done much crying. Sometimes emotions build up and you can try to take some time to get them out because you need to, but i hadn’t been able to actually cry for so long! Lately I’ve been feeling a lot of emotions and feelings I haven’t felt in a long time. They are mostly good feelings but they can be quite overwhelming too. Also, there are some hormones in there too. I’ve gone through a lot of things not so great in the past and I’m a bit scared too. So yes, I forgive myself for being emotional, a little negative, and crying. I’m feeling so much better for it!


Product Review

I went grocery shopping yesterday and I was in the aisle looking for face lotion (which I didn’t find.) I noticed that some of the Biore products were on sale and one said baking soda. I read a book a while ago where the woman used Bicarbonate of soda in everything. So, I know baking soda is good. I’d also seen lots of posts on Pinterest for face masks and cleanses that have baking soda in them. I have tried one once, and I found that baking soda is kind of uncomfortable on your face but I didn’t think of that when I was making my purchase. I do often put some baking soda in my bath with Epsom salt and essential oil because it is a cleanse type bath.

Anyways, I tried the product for the first time last night. It was interesting and I didn’t expect anything because I didn’t read the directions. I thought a face wash is a face wash. You pour it in the palm of your hand and lather up and scrub your face. Not rocket science.

So I opened the top and poured what I expected to be soap into my hand. It was a powder! So cool! Then it lathers right up. I put it on my face and it felt cool (and awesome too.) It was a cooling and clean sensation. I feel like my skin seemed a bit brighter today. I’ve only used it twice but I quite enjoyed it. We’ll see what happens after more consecutive uses. I’m happy with my purchase though!

Must See TV

I think one show that I really want to see this Fall is God Friended Me. I think it would be an interesting idea for a show. Can you imagine if that actually happened? All of a sudden God adds you as a friend and starts requesting people you should be friends with because maybe you can help them.

I really liked Kevin (Probably) Saves the World! It’s too bad that it got cancelled. It really sucks when there are good shows and they just get cancelled!!

Hopefully this one is a good one!!

10 Favourite Movies

BASEketball – it’s just so silly it cheers me up all the time, the creators of South Park

The Faculty – I just like the actors, Elijah Wood and Josh Hartnett, in this one and the excitement of them figuring out how to save everyone in the town.

Simply Irresistible – I like Sarah Michelle Gellar in this one. It’s also magical, she makes some nice looking food and it’s romantic.

Slammin Salmon – it’s just funny!

Hitch – it’s just interesting to see a romantic comedy from a guy’s point of view

Adventures in Babysitting- it’s just always been one of my favourites since I was young. I wanted to be that babysitter, haha!

50 First Dates – just sweet how he kept winning her over, and he fell in love!

Now and Then – it reminds me of my friends and I growing up, except we had different adventures.

Greatest Showman – such great music and performing!

Dirty Dancing – it’s a classic!!

I’m sure I have more favourites than that, there’s so many great movies out there!!!


It’s not like it’s a new thing. I’m almost 36 years old and I should be used to this. I’m not, maybe you can never get used to this.

Every time it’s different, and sometimes the time in between is lengthier. This time it’s been years. I kind of feel like I’m 13 again. Various things are making me feel this way.

It’s new so I can’t be sure. My heart keeps pounding and I’ve got butterflies in my chest. Sometimes I can’t even breathe, but in a good way. I’m so confused!

Does anyone really know how to do this?


I should have looked at the prompts I pinned for my blog. Today it wants me to share some Pinterest Pins I have clicked that I want to finish by the end of the year. I don’t really have anything specific pinned like that. I’d like to try some new recipes but, again, nothing specific. I’m not sure how to write about that, or how to share it on my blog.

In a couple days of wants me to photo series on the end of summer. That’s not a writing prompt! Also, summer isn’t ended and I haven’t been taking many photos of it. Just when there is something happening. My phone camera isn’t great.

So, I’m going to kind of wing some of these, or get my prompt elsewhere. So stay tuned!!

Autumn Excitement

I always look forward to the Fall season. Partly because it has my birthday and Thanksgiving in there, but also because it’s so beautiful and crisp.

Everyone loves the summer because it’s hot and we all want to be outside having barbecues and going to the lake. The Fall is a nice reprieve from the heat. You can still have a BBQ because it’s not too cold. The leaves are changing colour and blowing around. It’s magical!

I just get this excited feeling when fall is coming. It’s my favourite season!! Looking forward to brisk walks with Bronn, fall fashion, boots and scarves, Turkey, Halloween movies and rainy days.

Getting Dressed

It’s always best to dress with layers. When it’s hot you choose to wear shorts, a skirt or a dress. I still always make sure I have a sweater of some sort though because you never know when the weather could change, or you might need something to sit on cuz the seat is hot.

In the winter you need a bunch of extra stuff. Toque, gloves, scarf, ear muffs, boots, warm socks, and a big jacket. I still always have an extra sweater.

What I’m Reading

Right now I’m reading this book called Apartment 16. It’s very strange. This woman comes from the states to London to go through her Great Aunts apartment after she passes. The apartment is full of stuff, as if her aunt was a hoarder. There are also no mirrors or paintings. She finds a mirror in storage and brings it upstairs but then she thinks she sees something and gets creeped out. She ends up having to stay in a hotel instead while sorting through things and trying to figure out what her aunt was raving about in her journals.

Meanwhile, the night security man starts loosing his mind and seeing things. He is somehow channelling an old artist that used to live in the building and paint horrific portraits. It’s very strange.

I’m about half way through and I’m not sure how it’s going to turn out.

How Do I Do This One?

My prompt for today is to round up all the best back to school prompts I can find…but I’m not sure I can do that. For one thing, I’m not going back to school and I don’t have kids yet, so neither are they. Also, I work in a college, but I’ve been working all summer, so I don’t really need to do a back to work thing or anything.

I’m also not sure what to do for this post.

Also, does it mean you are supposed to round up other people’s posts, or the ones you wrote on the past? I’m not sure who these prompts are for so I’m not sure I can do much for this one.

Good luck with your schooling!!
