I have a new favourite song! It's Cardigan by Taylor Swift, I love her album but I could not get this song out of my head it's so beautiful!
The month of July started by using my paddle board for the day with my fiance.
A couple days later I went to Point Pelee with my best friend and walked down to the point before going swimming for two seconds because the water was freezing!!!
Later in the month I went camping at Rondeau Park with my best friend. The first night we wanted to go to the drive-in but it was closed due to rain so we had dinner and watched the sunset. The next day we did all the hikes in the park minus the marsh because it was closed off. We then went to the beach to read. The next day we went home after packing up!
The following week we went on another camping trip to Selkirk Provincial park. It ended up raining the first day so we were in the tent most of the night. The second day we drove around Hamilton to find trails by waterfalls but they were all closed off. We were able to walk a small trail by Felker's Falls but then found Christie Lake Conservation Area.
We sat around and ate our lunch before going on a trail that took us almost 2 hours. Rachael got stung by a bee while we were walking. We then did disc mini golf for the first time ever and it actually ended up being a lot of fun! Across from the park was a cute local bakery that sold ice cream so we of course stopped before heading back to the campsite.
The following day we went down to the small beach that was there. It was mainly stone without any sand so we had to sit on a bench. We then got our the paddle board but only used it for about forty five minutes because it started to get rough so we read for a bit before packing up and going home.
This month I was actually really into reading. I was able to finish two book, The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes was amazing!! I could not put it down I finished it in a week! The second book was Khloe Kardashian Strong Looks Better Naked.
In this month I found 2 amazing lip duos! The one on top is Essence Stay 8h Lip Liner in the shade so default and Colourpop's Hua Mulan Lipstick. The lower combo is Essence Stay 8h Lip Liner in the shade because duh with the Huda Beauty Liquid Matte in the Shade Flirt.
Another season of FabFitFun! Let's dive in and see what's inside!
Get $10 off your first box by using my referal link! https://share.fabfitfun.com/x/TZVKdB
So I don't know why but in this seasons box I got two items I've gotten in other seasons boxes before. I definitely don't mind the Makeup Eraser ($31) because you can never have enough of these. I think this brings my total to 4 large ones and I have 8 little ones. The more I get the less I'll need to use single use makeup remover swabs. The other item is the Winky Lux Rainbow Lip Balm ($18) which again could be a worse double. I think this chap stick for an everyday look it helps pinken the lips in a natural way and gives goof moisture. Both of these items were things I said I would buy again when I did get them so I guess now I don't need to!
This next item is from a brand I've never heard if before, Generation Clay. It is an Ultra Violet Brightening Purple Clay Mask that values for $39. I have so many masks I'm sure I'll get to this one eventually.
This box was filled with unknown brands, this next one is called Stone Street Soaphouse. It's the Hay Ho! Wholesome Body Cream. I'm actually running low on backups of body cream so this is good that I got some and it's priced for $24 which is pretty good for how much it comes with.
The next item is a Moroccan Gold Series Leave-in Mask that's supposed to moisturise your hair as well as protect it against heat and help detangle. I don't use heat much in my hair so I will see if a friend wants this product but if not I'll use it for the moisturising and detangling parts. It retails for $39.
The next item is a natural, vegan, and cruelty free Body Souffle by Human + Kind that goes for $18.50. I know I said I was running low on body cream but I think it's kinda weird that I would get two in one box it's not much of a variety.
The next item was one of the items you get to choose. It's by Summer & Rose a Celine Crossbody purse which retails for $58. I don't mind getting this in the bag but I don't think I would buy a purse this colour, it's just not my style.
This item is another one of the items you get to pick, it's a Donni Ribbed Sweater Coat. It looked super comfortable and like a nice cardagan so I'm going to wash it and if it is nice you'll defiantly see me wearing this in my insta stories. It's priced for $99 which I would never spend on a peice like this but I'm happy to receive in this box.
That was everything in this seasons box for me which all together came to $443. I feel like this box wasn't very good. Although I like some of the items I got two items I've gotten in previous boxes, I got two of pretty much the same item (body cream), and some of the items I wouldn't mind giving away such as the hair spray and the purse. I am excited for the Ribbed Sweater Coat and at least I do have backups of body creams. I'm not sure if getting repeat items has anything to do with the fact I cancelled my account and then rejoined when I knew I could afford it but I wish they would keep on your account so this wouldn't happen.
When you get to pick items if you like more than one item you can add it to the side for an extra price so I added Spiritual Gangster Maya Kimono. I love wearing these around the house but this one is also super cite that I would wear out as an extra light layer. It retails for $60 but I was able to add it for only $10 so I'd say that's a great bargain!
This month the weather was so nice I was actually able to start having fun! At the beginning of the month, my cousin got her inflatable paddle board in the mail so we went and tested it out which I loved so much! My fiance actually order me one for our 4 year anniversary after we tested it out!
I posted a video on my Youtube channel which features both me and my fiance falling off. The video is so hilarious!
Something amazing I did within this month was go and support a Black Live Matter peaceful protest! I went with my friend and the massive group walked by the riverside until part of the group (the group I was in) took to the roads shutting a couple down for a little but before going back to the river. I am so proud to be apart of the protest and how big the turnout was! I also made a video to help spread the message!
Since Kody got me an inflatable paddle board for our anniversary I decided to get him an inflatable kayak and we took it out on the water during a sunset where the view was breathtaking! I did make a Youtube video about this trip as well and it will be posted soon hopefully!
This month I also took up baking a bit more than I use to making new recipes I've never made before. I made a beyond meat shepherds pie which turned out amazing! I also tried to make banana bread and I'm not lying when I say it was the best banana bread I've ever had! I follow a recipe from an instagram account, they posted it in their story one time.
At the end of the month leading into the first of July I went camping! Provincial parks have finally opened so I had to go as soon as possible and I happened to land four days off in a row! So after work on the Saturday my fiance went to Wheatly Provincial Park just for the one night and relaxed. The next day my friend picked me up and we packed up into her car and drove to Bon Echo Provincial park where we stayed until the Wednesday. The Monday we went camping pretty much the full day and at night chilled by the fire having a few drinks. Tuesday we did a four hour hike and then after lunch went swimming. We ended the night going to a drive in movie theatre a coupe hours away. The following morning we just packed up and drove home! I had such an enjoyable time, can't wait for more camping trips this summer (if I get any days off together again).
GUYS I FINALLY FINISHED A STORM OF SWORDS!!! The ending was so amazing I wished I brought the next one camping but I do like to read a book between the books since it takes me so long to finish those books so I started the newest released Hunger Games Novel, The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes. I've only read the first chapter so far and it's alright just things I can't remember from the original makes me confused because it's been so long since I've read them and not as much information is in the movies but I'm excited to read the book!
This month I watched a couple seasons of shows. I watched the last season of 13 Reasons Why which to me was alright. I think I enjoyed the other seasons better but that's just my opinion. I know my friend who watched it at the same time loved this season! I watched the show V Wars because a few of the actors are from Smallville and the concept looked very interesting. I actually really liked this show as it was a very different take on vampires but it sucks how it ended sine it was such a cliff hanger and the show didn't get a second season approval. I'm pretty sure the show is based off of books so I might get the books so know what happens next! I also started finally watching The Walking Dead again. I think I watched about five episodes so Negan is finally in it and I love his character!! I was so bored of the show for a while now but he just spiced it up making it entertaining again! Will hopefully continue watching that.
New favourite song! I love when Niall harmonises in songs with other artists, it started when I heard Julia Michaels What A Time featuring Niall Horan. As soon as I heard Moral of the Story I fell in love with the vocals on the track!
Another month of quarantine and at this time I was working two jobs working 15 hours most days and was so exhausted! My fiance surprised me one day with flowers, candy, and a few health goodies for when I came home. I loved it!
Kody and I got a small flowerpot on our balcony, we decided to go and get dirt, some flowers, and plant them which was so much fun and they are growing so well!
About half way through the month, my cousin and I went to Hamilton (not getting out of our car anywhere other than the trials) to go hiking. We walked for a few hours along the Bruce Trail and before turning back we went to Tiffany Falls which was beautiful!
In May I went for lots of walks with my fiance and we took so many nature pictures I posted on my blog instagram account: https://www.instagram.com/vickyiez_blog/
At the very end of the month my fiance and I went to Niagara Falls for a couple of days to relax and look at a couple wedding venues.
This month I finished rewatching Glee and started watching New Girl which I have never seen before but I've heard such amazing thing about!
I'm sure if you know me this wouldn't come as a surprise but Lady Gaga Came out with a song with Ariana Grande so naturally it became my favourite song in no time!
My favourite song changed again! Gabbie released her new album and I am in love with all the songs but one a little more than the rest. She doesn't have a music video out for it yet but an account made a lyric video for it so I'll tag that so you can check it out!
Well a whole month Canadians have been in quarantine so not much has happened in the month of April. Here are the only things I did that is slightly interesting. For the most part I was working my two jobs and working out a bunch!
Near the beginning of the month Kody and I went on a small walk where for the first time we saw the flowers blooming.
Within the month Kody also thought his hair was growing too long so I cut it on my own which was fun and it actually turned out really well!
We also celebrated Easter this year just the two of us. Usually we spend the day with Kody's family and have dinner with them but since we couldn't this year. We made each other baskets, the one on the left is the basket he made me and the basket on the right is the basket I made him which I will say looks a lot better.
This month I also dyed my hair, I bleached my hair and roots as well as doing an ombre blue at the bottom of my hair which I actually need to touch up on. It took a couple of tries to get right but it was a fun experience.
This month I watched a few TV shows near the beginning I watched Tiger King while it was all the rage. I started re-watching Glee and the IT Crowd which I finished the latter. I was watching the new episodes of Keeping up with the Kardashians.
Kody and I also watched the whole Conjuring Universe, he does not like horror movies so the fact he watched them all with me was so much fun!
This month my friend and I were posting on our Youtube channel more than we have since we started it. We're going to try to post more frequently!
My new favourite song is Glass House by Gabbie Hanna it's such a unique song that I've been singing along with since the day it came out!
