Monthly Favourites- September 2016

Hello everyone and Happy Fall! I’m starting to like fall more and more, so while the weather is cooling off, I’m still happy it’s not winter! Plus, it’s almost sweater weather! It’s monthly favourites time once again and I’m sharing some of my favourite things from the past month. From entertainment, to clothing and beauty, I’m sharing it all. Let’s get started!

Favourite

Entertainment

The Unbreakable Kimmy Shmidt- Ethan and I are now on season 2, and are liking it! It’s a short show and nice and light to watch at the end of the day! I like how quirky the characters are too. If you are looking for something to watch on Netflix I would recommend it!

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child- As a huge Harry Potter fan I felt I had to read the newest story. I have to admit that I started it in August and wasn’t crazy about it, and put it down for about a month. In September I picked it up again and finished it quickly, because it got good! It definitely plays to fans of the original stories, so even if you are hesitant to read it, give it a try!

Gavin DeGraw- I have loved Gavin DeGraw since his very first CD. His newest release came out in September, and is called “Something Worth Saving”. If you don’t know who he is, you would probably recognize “I Don’t Wanna Be” which was the theme song to One Tree Hill. I pretty much gush over him in the video below, so if you want to hear that, check it out!

Beauty and the Beast- The 25th Anniversary dvd came out this month, so I had to pick it up! I find I’m slowly accumulating the classic Disney movies on Dvd, so I don’t have to rely on my VHS’. I enjoyed watching all of the behind the scenes from when the movie was made, and watched the movie as well :). I think Gaston is becoming one of my favourite Disney villans… who is yours?

Clothing

Kate Spade Blanket- While this isn’t a clothing item I do sort of wear this blanket and it is THE SOFTEST. I picked it up at Costco for $20 and am so happy I did. The best part is, it’s Queen sized! In the winter I generally have a blanket wrapped around me at all times, so I’m excited to use it as the weather gets colder! I can’t find a link for it anywhere but hopefully it’s still available at Costco!

Beauty

Urban Decay Setting Spray– This is the only setting product I have used, so I don’t have anything to compare it to, but I like it! It smells nice and it feels like it does a good job. I tend to touch my face a lot during the day, so it’s nice having a little bit of security! I originally bought the travel size to give it a try, and now bought the full size. I decanted a bit into the smaller one for when I am travelling, and works perfectly.

Frizz Ease syrum– I actually got this in a loot bag from an event I attended in the summer, and have been using it for a while now. I have noticed that my hair is feeling very healthy, and growing quickly! I’m not sure if there is one product that is causing it, or a combination of everything, so I thought I would share some of the things I’m using!

Tresemme spray- I use this when I get out of the shower to protect my hair from the heat of the styling tools I use, and it also helps to detangle my hair as it gets longer. I’ve used it for years, and have a stockpile of extras!

Miscellaneous

Tsum Tsum by Line Game- I’ve been playing this game for a while, and like the little dose of Disney it gives me! I explain the game a little in the video, but basically it’s a game where you connect similar characters to power up “your” character and get coins. You can then buy boxes with random tsum tsum characters in it. They sell toy versions in Disney stores, that look exactly like the characters in the game. I hope that explanation makes sense!

Just A Girl and Her Blog– Instead of a new YouTuber I thought I would share a blogger this month! I found Abby’s blog back in March when I was looking for a budget binder. I couldn’t stop reading! Her blog is one that I check practically daily, and I just love how pretty it is! She’s just moved into a new house, so I can’t wait to see her decorate it!

Monthly Favourites- August 2016

Hello friends! It’s monthly favourites time once again! I’m sharing some of my favourite things from the past month, ranging from entertainment, beauty, clothing and everything in between. I hope everyone has had an amazing summer and is ready for fall! Let’s jump right in!

Monthly Favourites August 2016

Entertainment

The O’Pears– If you watched my very first vlog, The O’pears were one of the many groups at Summerfolk this year. I really enjoyed their sets and purchased their cd while at Summerfolk, so I’ve listened to it a few times since. They are from Toronto so hopefully I will have the opportunity to see them in concert again!

Jonas Brothers- so after mentioning Nick Jonas in last month’s favourites, nostalgia hit me and made me want to go back and listen to the Jonas Brothers. Ethan and I were house sitting at the beginning of the month which meant a longer drive to work for me, so I had their cds in the car to keep me company. Especially after going so long since listening, it really brought me back to when I was a teenager “rocking” out to their music at the many concerts I went to. It was definitely fun!

New Girl- Seriously. If you haven’t seen this show, you need to! I’ve seen every episode now, and in August I realized I had the entire season from this year still on the PVR, so I watched all of it. This show is so great, I can’t say enough good things about it. If you want to know what I think is hilarious, this is it. I cry I laugh so hard. Every episode makes me laugh SO HARD. I love it. Hopefully I’m making it clear lol.

Clothing

I’m So Glad I left My Tower Tank– I picked up another shirt from Happily Ever Tees, and love this Tangled tank! Tangled is definitely up there as one of my favourite Disney movies, so I’m happy to have some merch! This tank is so subtle, and even has a hidden Pascal and frying pan! I can’t wait to wear it in Disney World! 😀 I could not find it anywhere, and their website does not have the new design on it… so you guys will just have to wait to see a picture of it when I find it!

I thought I would quickly mention that although I have picked up now 2 things from HET, I don’t think I will again. They only print a few of each size shirt, and they sell out in minutes. I tried 3 times to get a Carousel of Progress shirt for Ethan (which I grabbed at the same time as this tank), and the process was really stressful. For this reason, I will shop elsewhere. I obviously like their products, but don’t want my shopping experience to give me anxiety.

Beauty

Tea Tree Oil Squeaky Clean Scrub– I mentioned this scrub in my first empties post, and I am still loving it! I use it every other day in the shower, and it leaves my skin feeling nice and clean.

Miscellaneous

Polynesian Candle– this candle smells SO GOOD! I picked it up from Walter Rosie Candle Co, and absolutely love it! My sister bough a bunch of wax melts to use in her Party Lite Warmer, all Disney themed of course!

YouTube App- I thought I would mention how much I love the YouTube app. I love scrolling through my “home page” to see what it recommends for me, and I definitely like what it picks! It’s actually how I found both of the YouTubers I’m mentioning this month!

Aspyn + Parker– with three channels between them, I’ve been watching a bit of all three. I like their vlog style videos the most. I find it really cool to watch people that are really successful in the YouTube world, and especially these two who are so young!

Makeup by Tffany D– I’ve said before that I am definitely a newb when it comes to makeup, so watching her videos has definitely taught me some things! I believe I watched a Q&A from her first (of all things to watch when you have no idea who this person is), and have watched a couple other videos by her.

I hope you’ve enjoyed taking a look at some of my favourites from last month! If you’d like to hear a little more, check out the video below:

Monthly Favourites- July 2016

Hello everyone! Happy August! This summer is flying by. I hope you are all enjoying the sunshine wherever you are! It’s monthly favourites time again, and I’m sharing some of my favourite things from the last month. I’m sharing all things from entertainment, to clothing, beauty, and miscellaneous. Let’s get started!

Monthly Favourites July 2016

Entertainment

Finding Dory- My ideal movie to go see in theatres is either Disney, a rom-com, or a comedy. Finding Dory was so cute! I think a lot of people raved about it so seeing it I thought it didn’t necessarily live up to the hype, but I still enjoyed it. Because I was fairly young when Finding Nemo came out, it was nice to see those characters again.

Ghostbusters- I went to the movies twice this month (which is a rarity) and also saw the new Ghostbusters! I enjoyed it, and seeing it made me want to go back and watch the original. Sometimes it’s great to go to the movies and just laugh, which is exactly what this movie made me do!

Nick Jonas and Demi Lovato- I went to see these two in concert with Ethan (who deserves boyfriend of the year for it), and really had fun! I listened to their music leading up to the concert as a refresher, and had fun at the concert. I used to be OBSESSED with the Jonas Brothers, and after they broke up (tear :() it was nice to see Nick in concert again. Demi has an amazing voice in person as well.

Friends- Yep, I knew this was going to happen! As soon as I finished Gilmore Girls I gravitated towards Friends, it happens every time! I’m on season 3 now, and I still love this show so much. I’ve seen the first 2 season more than any of the other because they were the first two I owns (on VHS!).

Dramaworld- This show on Netflix was recommended in last month’s favourites, so I got right into watching it! It’s only 10 episodes and they are 20 minutes and under, so I watched it fairly quickly! I was surprised with how much I like this series, and I hope they make more episodes!

Clothing

Romper- I wore this romper in last month’s video, and I absolutely love it! It’s from Banana Republic, and I actually picked it up while Ethan and I were shopping for him (gotta get something for me too, right?). I like how lightweight it is, and it isn’t too revealing. Unfortunately I couldn’t find it online, but I’m not surprised because I bought it in an outlet store.

Beauty

sea salt spray- I got this spray in the Summer FabFitFun box, and I’m liking it! I use it on day old curled hair in a ponytail, so it’s quick and easy. It doesn’t leave my hair hard and crunchy, and I really enjoy the smell! I’m happy to say I’ve used something from a FFF box 🙂

Baked to last Blush– It’s no secret that I love The Body Shop, so a while ago I decided to pick up a blush when I was placing an order online. I’m not really looking for anything in particular in a blush, but I use this one everyday. It’s not too pink that I feel like I can use it year-round, and it just adds a touch of colour to my cheeks.

Miscellaneous

nike+ app- I haven’t really shared apps before so I thought I would start! I’ve been running outside lately as part of the Tone It Up 100 mile challenge (which I’m not doing very well in), but as I start to get more into running and learning pace and trying to get distance under my belt this app has been great. I can listen to music that I have on my phone through the app, and every mile I’m notified of my pace. I like looking after I’ve completed my run to see where I was fastest, and how consistent my pace was. I’m nowhere near a pro, but this app is helping me learn!

HISY Power Bank– I mentioned in my Plan With Me post that I was going to a Blue Jays game on bobblehead day which meant I would get there early, and I was right. For a 1pm game Ethan and I were waiting outside by 8:45am. When you are waiting outside for 2 hours, and then inside for another 2 hours, you are going to be on your phone a lot. I got the HISY power bank in a FabFitFun box last year, and was excited to try it out. It was awesome! I will definitely be taking it to Walt Disney World with me because I know my phone battery will be use dup quickly!

SeeYaReelSoon– Speaking of Walt Disney World, I thought I would mention one of my favourite Disney Youtubers. Joe and Ashley from SeeYaReelSoon. I have been watching them for about a year now, and I always enjoy their videos! Right now they are posting videos from their October/November trip last year…. and let’s just say I’m paying special attention 😉
