Self Tanner vs. Jen: Volume 1

Last night I did something.  I succumbed to my sanity and tried self tanner.  Some would ask "Why?" and all I can tell you is, I blame YouTube and beauty influencers with long tanned legs. You see, it started with tan lines on my stomach. Since having kids my stomach hasn't seen the light of day, and it legit startles me every time I take a shower and have to face myself in the mirror. I figured a self tanner would help solve that problem and I set out for product reviews, DIY strategies, and tips and tricks. Which then led me to YouTube. Which then led me to Instagram. Which then led me to hashtags. Which then led me to realize Jergens is still around and hey, a newish (to me at least) product: foam! I could have gone for the gradual self tan lotion that Jergens is so famous for, but no, I went straight for the big guns. If you're gonna do something, you have to be all in. No "gradual tan" BS I told myself. So a few nights ago, I tested the self tanner on m

Friday Five's - It's Not to Early for Christmas Right?!

I'm the worst at keeping a schedule in my person life. During the work day...I am on point with my schedule and to-do lists. I've always said that, and although I'm aware, I just can't seem to get my shit together on this dang blog! Or my workouts. Or meal planning/WW (Weight Watchers). 

I'm posting a Friday Five's article on Saturday morning. This is just how I roll...get used to it friends!

Back to our scheduled programming.....

Is it just me or did the stores kind of skip over Halloween and move straight to Christmas? I swear I say this every year. But this year, maybe because we're still being cautious and not going out as much because of this pandemic, I feel like the stores are all about Christmas decor and holiday gift guides. Not that I mind, I'm not a huge Halloween fan anyway.

This past week was so busy, and we had lots to celebrate. Here's a highlight.

The kids and I took in the beautiful sights of a nearby walking trail with my parents.

My daughter celebrated her First Holy Communion. It was supposed to be in the Spring but COVID-19 had other plans. We didn't get to give her the party we had hoped, but my parents surprised her with a cake after we got home from church. Overall she was super happy and I think all she wanted was to wear a poofy dress anyway! 

We clean up well! 

Soooo I did a thing. I started curating Christmas decor and ornaments already. While I complain that the stores have started Christmas marketing too early...I caved. Drank the Kool Aid. Bought a few Christmas ornaments for myself and my brother's family.


Speaking of Christmas, I also got really really excited about this gift wrap organizer I found on Amazon.ca - no I'm not an affiliate and no I will not make money if you buy it. I am just really really excited to have found an organizer at a very reasonable price point! I get it tomorrow...should I do an unboxing? lol 

It's called: ZOBER Premium Wrap Organizer and it was only $26.99 Canadian...and I get it tomorrow thanks to Amazon Prime! Woohoo
Curly haired girls and ladies in the house...this brush is amazing for detangling after a shower. It doesn't matter how much conditioner I use in my daughter's hair, it is always a birds nest. This brush is a life saver. And rumour has it, Dollarama sells them now.



So there you have it, my Friday Fave's and a taste of what's to come for me for the upcoming Christmas season....lot's of shopping...obviously.

How was your week? Any plans for the weekend?

Join me and a bunch of other awesome bloggers for this Friday Fave's blog hop.
