So Wednesday / Thursday-ish (the line is slightly blurry) I was basically in the mode of “fuck my life” and I had wrote a blog on EVERYTHING that was going wrong but then when I hit posted my computer went craycray and essentially lost the whole blog (not even a draft was saved) and being all frustrated and stuff I just said fuck it there’s better things to do then rewrite it (like nothingness). But since I had written that other post I’ve had the best of luck, or just a multitude of good/great things happen to me.
And today here’s the list of awesomeness:
Ugh, I got a free riding lesson, a pair of boots and gloves for winter.
I got a HUGE mirror and plywood to finish my repairs in my porch and supper from my aunt.
I made 40$ selling an old phone that I was keeping around until I could sell.
I got a weekend full of work which means more cash.
I got to go to an awesome concert (Brad paisley) and meet a new dude – was supper fun !
My porch is fully fixed and well done.
I’m sure there were more things but I can’t think of them but these were the best I could think of 🙂 But it’s weird how everything can be the worst and then it can be the best.
So in my last Humanities class a few things were brought up, like going to the store 6 days a week instead of getting everything at once or stocking up. Then that reminded me that I wanted to write a blog about what I had done a few weeks before school to prepare for school.
I was refused for a loan this year so I had to think ahead of time for saving money for such things as my mandatory brace payments each month, text books, intuition, hydro and my cell. I am planning to work at least 20 hours a week to allow for other things I’ll need like: food, clothes, and new unnecessary things.
So this summer I did manage to get enough money saved to pay all the important things, but also with the extra money I went shopping and stock up on A LOT of things, mostly beauty and canned foods. I also bought a lot of clothes of course!
Something’s that I thought were important to stock up on are:
– Shampoo and body wash, I use Aveeno, which went on sale this summer for 6.99 a bottle instead of 10$ so I bought about 4 bottles each. Saving 30$.
– A ton of make-up: Mascara, foundation, bronzers, lip gloss, eyeliner and shadow. I probably saved about another 30$ I bought about 2 of everything when it went on sale.
– Shoes, I bought usually 2 get 1 ½ off and this goes for clothes as well: pants shirts bras etc..
– Canned food like soup and veggies. About 10 of each.
So those are some of the things that I’ve purchased, as for actual school related material all I needed to buy was lose leaf. I find that so far I have to worry a lot less about picking things up or when I’m going to run out of my favorite mascara, it’s a lot less stressful.
Another thing I’m trying to do is be eco friendly, I have thought about it in the pass but have never started acting eco-friendly. Some of the things that I have recently, and by recently I mean started at the end of august done are: Biking to and from school or work at least 2 times a week, there are about 3 benefits to dong this 1) A Nice workout every so often 2) I don’t have to pay for gas 3) Since I’m not driving I’m not emitting Co2 emissions = Eco-friendly. And the other 5 days a week I either car-pool or drive. I’m also recycling; not just the typical metals, plastic, glass but also I recycle my old clothes (sell to friends, give to secondhand stores).
If you’re considering going green and eco-friendly, you don’t have to start full blown. Slowing start by doing small smart changes at your own pace. Every little change counts!
Is when all the little baby animals are born and we can break out the summer clothes (with caution, because mother nature lately has been undecided!)
The past few days I’ve been scoping new blogs on YouTube and there have been a few people catching my attention with their fashion videos and ideas. Some of my new favorite bloggers are Rachhloves, ForeverYours0727 and CityAndMakeup. These girls are amazing! And two are Canadian! So I got a few ideas and then went shopping, trust me I’m not complaining! Here are some of the things I had purchased!
Let start off with my new blazer…
It’s from Forever 21, Which I loveee. The bangles are from Ardene, the other pink bracellete is from Pura Vida (show your support at www.puravidafoundation.ca/) Mines the Breast cancer one. My nail polish is Essie in e-nuf is e-nuf. And my feather earrings are a friends.
I got myself these little cute sandals from a random shoe store…
You probably can’t see the detail too well, but its zebra print. I love the buckle on the side too 🙂
I love love love coral, the color is so amazing!
I got it from Limite, along with the spandex too.
I can’t wait to do some more shopping soon! You guys can check out the other blogs on YouTube, they are really amazing!
So I live in Quebec, Canada. And for the last few days it has been amazing. Tan worthy. Walking around in flip-flops worthy. Wearing short-shorts worthy. AND even Swimming worthy. YES. March. I know you must think I’m crazy depending on who you are, if you aren’t from Canada and think we are supposed to be covered in snow, we’ll we are supposed to be but nope Mother Nature wants us to bring them sunglasses out early.
There is one small problem. ALL my summer cloths and shoes and EVERYTHING are in my storage while we are redoing my house (which we are on the last coat of painting and then I can move back in ^.^) See that wouldn’t be that bad of a problem If I could get to it without having to move a whole house worth of stuff. Oh and it gets worst I have only two dresses out and everything else is like winter-ish stuff like thick sweaters and Fuzzy leggings and Whooly-Man socks, Yes I went there. And yes they are Trev’s, and he does know but he isn’t proud of me. Guy’s socks are just so much warmer; you girls know what I’m talking about? You go to Arden’s and buy cute socks and your feet freeze, you have to wear like three pairs to be able to feel your toe’s after a small walk.
Idealy this is what I need: Sunglasses, Shorts, Gladiator Sandals. Sadly I have none. 😦
So I have no summer clothes this is a HUGE deal, I don’t know what to do. I have a budget which allows me to not spend money on myself Because I already spent that part of the budget for March, and April is so so so far away. So I have come up with one solution, borrowing 🙂 You know where I’m heading … I mean swap for a few days. I don’t have any shorts or skirts so the last thing to do is when you’re in need resort to a good friend who completely understands what you’re going through.
It was so nice out that I got to go for a small jog and am motivated to getting my body back in shape. Thanks to the help of Dutchess I’m always running after her, but that’s because I’m trying to show her how to play fetch, though I secretly think she just likes to see me run and get the ball. She is probably thinking to herself “Haha now you know how it feels to go fetch, do you like it? Huh?” Haha I know insanity right?
So my goals for this week are:
To run 5 days x 30 mins .
To make sure the SPCA fundraiser for dog leashes does amazing at school.
To borrow a pair of shorts.
And work some odd job to give me cash fast,
And to get all this homework done, it is seriously taking over my life. You miss three days and suffer for weeks. Bleh.
Get my car back. ..
My car that’s something you guys have been out of the loop about. Well let’s just say if the mechanic was a doctor my car was just brought back to life. I have so many engine problem which included two leaks which lead to no Prestone which lead to overheating, then all my sensory’s broke, then some of those fuse thingy’s went. Now that I think about it that all happened in one day, maybe this death is faster than what I thought. I need a new car.
(I would insert a picture her bu that would be devastating :s)
I think I’m done here for the day, Maybe I’ll be back here with some good news like I won a car from Roll up the Rim at Tim Hourtons, ooo how I wish this 🙂 or the TV would be my next best option. Can’t you tell I’m Canadian eh?
