Summer Vacation 2014

I haven’t really had much to say lately because nothing interested has been happening, however last week I took a mini vacation. I went to a cottage in Muskoka for a week of sun and fun. The original plan was to drive up Friday with everyone else but I ended up having to work, so I made the 3 hr drive alone on Saturday. It wasn’t as bad as I had thought it would be. I hit a little bit of traffic but I was expecting it.

The view’s from the cottage were pretty awesome I should add. We had our own little private dock and the water got deep pretty fast. It was perfect for swimming in.

Most of the day’s were spent at the cottage, but we did venture into Port Carling a few times. We stopped at Grand Electric Muskoka for some lunch one day and visited some of the local shops. Another day was at a Beach. During the evenings we had a fire, roasted some mashmello’s and made smores. We also got eaten alive by bugs!

It was a great vacation, but I’m glad to be back home.

OH! I also got a new kitchen table before I left. It’s a major kill to the budget, BUT I’ve been wanting it since I moved in so when it finally came back in stock at Costco my dad and I picked it up! Ain’t she purdy!


June 2014 Budget Recap

I’m thankful I landed a babysitting job and another part time job at least for the month of june anyways. I’ve gotten my work schedule for July and I’m not getting many hours. Oh well, here’s to not spending any money as of today.

June 2014

May 2014 Budget Recap

So I underestimated my monthly income, and forgot to give my parents some money for my debt. So that’s the first thing I plan to do in June, cuz I’ll be getting some cash. Overall this was a really good month. I’m not spending hardly any money on myself so it’s kind of annoying to see it all go to bills. Such is life I guess.

May Budget Recap

May 2014 Goal Recap


  • Follow a 52 week deposit schedule but do it backwards. – I have $916 in my TFSA and plan to deposit June’s amount in a few days when I get paid.
  • Save $100 in change. Way past $100. I have about $150 right now.
  • Pay off $4,000 of debt by December 31, 2014 Not doing too well with this. Left to pay: $3,500.


  • Lose 20 pounds – Down 3 pounds. Will be starting round 2 on Monday of the 21 day challenge. Clothes are fitting better. Need to track inches this round.
  • Read 1 book a month – Failed! I started a book in May, but I never finished it, still working on it.


  • Finding a part time job (10-15 hrs a week maybe) – working Friday’s right now, and the odd Sunday. Hopefully come July 1st I get more hours. Giving up EI for an actually job needs to be worth it.
  • Planning/figure out the cost of a trip back to Europe, or to Florida (Disney).- kind put this on the back burner right now.

Influenster – Broadway Nails imPRESS Press-on Manicure

I was lucky enough to receive another present from Influenster a few weeks ago and I was beyond excited to be chosen for this box. If you know me, then you know I have a love for nail polish so to be able to do a review on imPRESS Press-on manicure by Broadway Nails is really exciting.


imPRESS Press-on Manicure by Broadway Nails is the revolutionary way to achieve a flawless manicure in seconds. All you need to do is find the correct size, peel and press and you are done! It’s that simple. It took me about 3 mins to apply the nails. No lies!

I applied my nails Friday morning. I had to be out the door by 8am for work and I decided to apply then at 7:50am. It took a few short minutes to find the correct size, peel off the protective layer and then press on the nails. I am beyond hooked! Especially with the nails that I received.

Influenster sent me 2 imPRESS Press-on Manicure kits to use. I decided to apply the Disney Villains. The colour is just amazing. It look grey with a hint of purple depending on how you are looking at the nails.

My students were also in love with the way they look. They couldn’t believe that they were press on nails. In the beginning the nails felt slightly odd, but now I am so use to them I don’t even think twice about doing things. They are suppose to last up to a week so I guess only time will tell.

Tomorrow I have to work, so that will be the true test. Here’s hoping a nail doesn’t pop off while I’m working cash.

I received these products complimentary for testing purposed from Influenster.
