Happy Halloweeniversary

A year ago tonight I walked into The Cottage in FMB with my cousin Tanya.  I was feeling very down in the dumps as most of you know until a man in a Captain America costume put his arm around me and told me I was the prettiest girl in the bar.  Who knew I’d fall for a man in spandex 🙂

 This is about 1am last Halloween – excuse my drunky face



I can’t believe it’s been a year since we met (again) (that’s a story for another time).  I love you more and more everyday and I’m lucky to have you in my life.  I can’t wait to see what the next year will bring.


Last weekend

Show & Tell: Oct 21/11

Work has been kind of taking over my life lately, which I really don’t mind at all, but it’s definitely been a challenge to fit life in the mix.  Last night was the launch party for Movember and it sounds like it was a great night.  I ended up skipping the event to have dinner with my family and it was well worth it.  I love having us all together 🙂

This weekend is my first Sambassador experience and I’m really looking forward to it.  Tomorrow morning Jason and I are going to Inn on the Twenty for a wine tour, dinner, overnight in a Loft Suite and then a trip to the Spa for massages.  I can’t wait!

Nature Clean & a giveaway


When Nature Clean asked me to be a part of their sampling program and try out their new Pure Nourishment shampoo & conditioner and Refresh soap  I said yes right away.  I’m a fan of their cleaning products and had no idea they made beauty products as well.  Nature Clean is a Canadian, third generation, family run company that makes non-toxic alternatives to household products and that is my favourite kind of brand.  I’ve been making a conscious effort lately to replace products with greener versions and I hate that there are so many different chemicals in beauty products.  I also like to use Canadian made products as much as possible.

The shampoo & conditioner are both 98% natural ingredients and have no parabens, sulphates and phthalates and I really like them both.  It acts like a homemade shampoo and doesn’t lather which I found hard to get used to at first, but it leaves your hair nice and clean feeling without a residue.  The conditioner goes on smooth and it makes my hair feel soft and clean.  I’ve had to use a deep conditioner a couple times because I kinda fried the ends of my hair by dying it twice in a week, but otherwise have used the Nature Clean exclusively.  I haven’t had a chance to try the soap yet but it smells amazing.  I’ll be reviewing all the products on my ChickAdvisor profile and will Tweet/FB when they’re up.


They also sent me a bunch of 60mL bottles of shampoo and conditioner to give away to family and friends and I’ve got 10 packs to give away to you guys.  For this giveaway you have to live in Canada, sorry guys, but I can’t send stuff like this over the border.  If you want one all you have to do is leave a comment on this post and tell me if you have ever tried a Nature Clean product before.  There’s no wrong answer and the first 10 people to comment will win 🙂

Also, if you’d like to share your opinion on the products, you can send me a write up and I’ll post it on my blog 🙂

Sorry for the no Show & Tell this week but I’ve been ridiculously busy at work AND I actually ventured out of the house for fun!  Finally getting back into the swing of things and you guys will be seeing a lot more of me in the coming weeks 🙂
