Influenster – Garnier Fructis #ColorShield

I recently received a lovely box from Influenster which was full of Garnier #ColorShield hair care products to review.


Included in the box was:

  • Garnier Fructis Color Shield Shampoo for colour treated hair
  • Garnier Fructis Color Shield Conditioner for colour treated hair
  • Garnier Fructis Color Shield Heat Protect & Shine Spray for colour treated hair

The shampoo is light pink in colour has an amazing smell. For some reason I just love using shampoo that smells nice, so this was a win win for me! The conditioner is light and not overly thick which I’ve found with some products I’ve used. It also helped to cure my frizzy hair issues.

I used the Heat Protect & Shine Spray and found it to leave somewhat of a greasy reside on my hair. Apparently this is common (thanks google!) so I obviously didn’t use enough. My hair seems to straighten pretty easily anyways but I did notice that it had more shine to it then it usually does. I also received some compliments the following day about how healthy my hair looked.

I’ve never really used products targeted towards colour treated hair so I have nothing to compare them against, except my regular products. I probably wouldn’t purchase the spray once it runs out just because my hair seems to straighten fine without it.

Overall I would recommend the products to family and friends who were interested in having lovely smelling, shiny hair! I don’t know many that straighten their hair as much as I do though.

Disclaimer: I received these products free of charge from Influenster however I was not paid for my review and all opinions are my own.

EI is Sorted!

My EI has finally all been sorted out! The money was deposited into my back account last week. I cried when I saw it all. I also was paid by the school board on Thursday which was a huge surprise to me. I thought our pay day was this Thursday!

It’s nice to not have to be so stressed out about my mortgage coming out and to be making a regular pay cheque! I absolutely adore being back to work.

August Goal Recap


  • Follow a 52 week deposit schedule but do it backwards. – August and Septembers have been made at the time of this post!
  • Save $100 in change. Done! I deposited $102 in July into my TFSA.
  • Pay off $4,000 of debt by December 31, 2014 Not doing too well with this. Left to pay: $3,500.


  • Lose 20 pounds – Joined a TRX class. I go Monday and Wednesday night. Hopefully September will be the start of something. I suck so bad.
  • Read 1 book a month – I read “If I Stay” and “Where I went” in August.


  • Finding a part time job (10-15 hrs a week maybe) – summer job contract ended as of September 1. I’m still babysitting
  • Planning/figure out the cost of a trip back to Europe, or to Florida (Disney).- Need to book tickers. I have the dates figured out, just need the money.

Labour Day 2014

Today is the day before I go back to work. !!!!!!! I’m ecstatic to be able to go back to work. This summer has been nothing but hell for me. I’m still waiting on information regarding my EI claim. Can you believe it? It’s been delayed beyond belief. Turns out taking the part time job really screwed me over, so next summer I will just be collection EI and won’t bother with a job at all. Money has been very tight, but I’m managed to overspend like usual. I’ve got a nice chunk of change coming to me tomorrow, so I should be able to square up some debt soon enough. I really need to figure out a way to make more money, but to not spend my life working.

A few weeks ago I tried to grow some new grass in my front yard and I purchased a 3 in 1 product. Instead of new grass, I ended up killing the grass. I’m waiting on my money back because I contacted the company regarding their money back guarantee. I hate paying for something that doesn’t do what it’s suppose to, or breaks shortly after purchase.


So this morning I spent the day digging up the dead grass and then just laying down plain old grass seed that I got from my dad. Hopefully with some water I’ll have some nice grass in a few weeks. If not I might cry. It looks awful, especially when the rest of the grass is cut.

Other then that bit of news I have nothing to report. Life has been that boring. I’m currently watching the Tiger Cats football game against the Toronto Argo’s and it’s a good game. I’m getting absolutely nothing done in regards to my school To Do list which isn’t a surprise. My budget recap and goal recap are already done and scheduled, so those will be live later this week.

Guess I’ll just enjoy the rest of the game.
