Snapshot Sunday + Weekly Post Recap

Hi guys! Another week has come and gone again! It was mostly another uneventful week. My husband and I have been playing through a video game together so it has really distracted us from everything else.

This weekend has been a bit busier though. On Saturday I went to get my hair done so I chopped quite a bit of it off and decided to go for a more chocolatey-brown colour. I really loved the red but I’ve had red hair for about a year now so it was time for a change.

After that I went shopping with my mom which was a lot of fun. It is nice to spend quality time together and catch up.

After shopping I went out with some friends to a shag. Basically it is a wedding social that couples put on to raise money for their wedding. I think it is very much a Thunder Bay thing. Anyone can attend the event, more often than not you don’t know the couple who is getting married. There is always great prizes, inexpensive drinks and music. Continue reading

Inexpensive Valentine’s Date Ideas

Hi guys! With Valentine’s Day just around the corner I thought I would share some date ideas that won’t break the bank!

  1. Make a special meal together at home: For Valentine’s Day I usually make my husband a special meal. I normally do a lot of the cooking to begin with but I aim to go above and beyond with this meal and make something different from the norm. We do usually go out for dinner around Valentine’s Day but usually we prefer going out when there isn’t a pre-set menu so this was my solution! I think it would be really fun to stay in and cook a meal with your significant other to celebrate Valentine’s Day!
  2. Movie night: I always enjoy a good movie night! Whether it each one of us picks a movie, or we pick them together. And of course there must be a movie snack!
  3. Day trip to do an outdoor activity: This would depend on where you live. There are lots of outdoor winter activities you can do where I live whether it be going to one of the local ski hills, going snowshoeing, skating or cross-country skiing. Enjoying these activities with someone special can be a lot of fun! You can always warm up after with a nice coffee, tea or hot chocolate! If you live in a warmer climate then a hike and a picnic would work as well.
  4. Playing video games: This is one of my favourite things to do if I have a date night with my husband. We really enjoy playing video games together! It’s a lot of fun and not something we always find the time to do together. Super Mario games are particularly fun to play together and there is such a wide variety of them!

I’m sure there are many more inexpensive date ideas you could use. These are the ones that came to mind when I started thinking about it. Share any inexpensive date night ideas you can think of in the comments down below!

I hope you have a lovely weekend!

xoxo,

February Birchbox Unboxing

P1020254

Hi guys! Today’s post is a bittersweet one as it will be my last Birchbox unboxing post. Birchbox announced last week that they were stopping service to Canada and that my subscription would be cancelled after the February box. Needless to say, I’m incredibly disappointed. They have indicated that it is due to increased shipping costs and the exchange rate. I’ve really enjoyed Birchbox and am sad that I only had it for a short time. I did however subscribe to Ipsy because I enjoy getting a monthly beauty subscription. Hopefully I’ll receive my first beauty bag in March and hopefully they don’t follow suit and end services to Canada too.

For my February box (because I didn’t know at the time it would be my last) I opted in for the Date Night themed box as the items sounded like I would enjoy them all. So no surprises for me this month! Continue reading
