My Weekend

So I wrote a "c" on my hand Fridaymorning, so that I would remember to do/get something.  Well throughout the day I saw the "c" and could not remember what it was I was suppose to remember!!  Well I did not remember until today!  Monday why I had wrote that "c" on my was to remind me to bring home my mini chalkboards from my class to paint them with my leftover chalkboard paint (I painted my front hall closets with the chalkboard paint {see last blog for Dad/Grandpa's birthday wishes written on said chalkboard}).  YIKES!

This weekend we babysat Molly

And we met up with Dad & Bev to watch cousin Noah play football in Brockville.  Noah plays for the Redskins and he is on the offense?  the nose???  I do not know anything about football so I am just learning.  His team is 3 - 0.

Go #70!!! Go REDSKINS!!!

Hair Removal done 4 U

So over this past summer I tried a few different hair removal treatments.  I usually shave but this summer I tried the No No laser hair remover, Veet and Nair.

The No No was an OH NO!!  and I sent it back.  Along with a blue light laser it also has a fine wire that tends snap if you are not going smoothly along your skin.  Well I do not know about you but I am not flat and smooth all over?!  I ended up with small cuts in certain areas that were curved and the small head of the laser would have taken forever to complete and area and to see results.  I did smell hair burning but the practicing to get it just right and the time spent doing the same area over and over was just too much plus the slice and dice on my skin!  They tried to convince me to keep it  and told me I could practice on a table to get the pressure just right???!!  The laser only works for so long and then it must be replace and I am suppose to waste it on my table!  I got a refund and I was still fuzzy:(

The Veet shower hair removal was my favourite.  I had tried these depilatories before in high school and they smelt awful and did not work that great.  They have certainly improved them.  I did my upper thighs and bikini line.  I used the in shower version of Veet. It came with a small sponge to wipe the hair away in the shower and it did just wipe away!  I kept it on for the full 6 minutes.  I continue to use it.

I also tried the Nair version of the in shower.  It said to keep it on for 10 minutes and I did.  I got a slight irritation but it could have been that I scrubbed instead of wiping off the hair.  But there was just something about it that I did not like and will not use it again.

Next I plan to try the Epilady (small version).  It has spinning coils that rip your hair out!1 Remember it from the late 80s early 90s?

I will let you know how that goes:)

My Experience With Donate Naturally

So I recommended the grocery website thought it was wonderful that at the same time you could order healthier food and make a donation to a charity of your choice plus it gets delivered right to your door...

Well I have to say the order did come quick.  I had to remove the hummus and pesto from my order because I do not live in to Toronto area and who knows what they would have been like if they did send them?!  I did order some blue tortillia chips and they had placed a glass jar of pasta sauce on top of the chips so they got crushed.  I emailed them they refunded my $.  Then as I was putting my organic salad dressings in the fridge (the next day) I noticed that 2 out of the three expired in September!  I emailed them again and they refunded the $.  They also said they would notify the warehouse who is packing the orders...

I will order again from this website. Although their prices are close to if not the same as what is in the grocery store, I tend to stick to what is on sale and they do have a few items I do not find in my grocery store.  When I do order for the second time I will let you know how that goes.
