COVID-19 Layoff: Day Twenty-Eight

What day is it?

Today was a stressful blur. Last night and this morning I had a heart attack over the whole CERB thing. On Twitter and Instagram I saw that you need to reapply every month for the CERB, however Twitter and Instagram weren’t very clear when they posted this and sent everyone into a freenzy. We figured it out for the most part and I was done panicking eventually.

So yesterday I totally forgot to tell my funny dinner story. I made spaghetti and homemade meatballs and it was delicious but I didn’t tell you about raining pasta. When Dave and I have spaghetti we break the uncooked pasta because I have a tongue ring and it gets wrapped around it. I was struggling to break the big bundle I had so I made it into two smaller bundles. I broke one bundle in half but pieces went flying everywhere! Like I was standing in my kitchen that over looks my living room, pieces rained down on Dave sitting on the couch, flew to my dogs bed on the other side of the livingroom and by our jackets hanging up on the other side of the house. We laughed then sure enough I did the exact same thing with the second bundle. EVERYWHERE.
Naturally, I didn’t clean it up because I was lazy then ate way to much pasta. The next morning I walked into the bathroom and felt something stuck to my sock, I tried kicking it off but nothing so I lift up my foot and sure enough pasta was stuck in my sock. Needless to say I vaccumed today only to miss a full size pasta noodle! No idea where that one came from!

Today was pretty much a repeat of yesterday, I played with Drax, waited until he went to nap and played animal crossing. Now my plans are to shower and cuddle Drax in bed, living the dream.

The new Animal Crossing game is actually really fun, they added in A LOT, literally building everything from the ground up. I love it but you definitely need some help on what to do because you end up doing nothing. I’ve been doing well for the most part still it’s work this one, but it’s a good thing! The other one you get bored of fishing to pay off your incredibly high loan.

That’s it for today. I’m going to think of more ideas for this blog since I have another month of COVID layoff.

Thanks for reading,

January Favourites 2015!

Yay! The first Monthly Favourites of 2015! Here we go…

Makeup Favourite

s1445105-main-Lhero

Ciaté Velvet Manicure

I actually got this as a stocking stuffer for Christmas but you can get it at Sephora for $30.00. I don’t do my nails often so I’m not so great at doing them at all, but this was pretty east to use and it looks great after. My favourite colour is purple so it’s even more of a bonus but the dark purple in this set is amazing.

Skin Care Favourite

cetaphil-127-gentle-cleansing-bar-400x400-imaeyxgs9qkbkfvz

Cetaphil Gentle Cleansing Bar

This is just a regular bar of soap but it’s great for sensitive skin, all Cetaphil products are in my opinion. I mostly use this for my face, I found all other face products weren’t doing the job so I randomly tried it. It’s gentle so it makes your face actually feel clean, after I put the face lotion on that I wrote about before to finish the job. Unfortunately in Canada one bar can go for $7.00-$8.00 but in the States you can get a pack of 3 for the same price.

Hair Care

61zdFYGR3IL._SY355_

Infiniti Pro by Conair Curl Secret

My sister got this as a Christmas gift but I’m the actual person who used it so far, I didn’t use it on myself, I used it on my sister’s hair. I watched reviews and how to use them online and people seemed to be struggling. I found it to be so cool and way faster than a normal curler. You can get it at your local drug store or beauty store if they have them. They are also on the expensive side for Conair products, it’s going for $90.00-$150.00 in Canada.

Body Favourite

pBBW1-17735661v850

Bath & Body Works Eucalyptus Mint Hand Soap (Deep Cleansing Hand Soap)

All my hand soaps are from this store, I find them to clean your hands well and they smell great. I love this one specifically because it’s relaxing to me, they also have stress relief things that are this scent.  At the store it’s $6.50 each but they always have a great deal on for getting a bunch of them.

Home Favourite

my-little-steamer-go-mini-hand-steamer-3

My Little Steamer Go Mini Hand Steamer

I actually saw this on a YouTube channel and thought it was so cool. I got it for Christmas but you can get it at Bed, Bath & Beyond for $24.99. It’s really easy to use, it works and it small enough to pack when you’re going away.

Music Favourite

maxresdefault

Heart Upon My Sleeve by Avicii

It’s just a very cool song with what it sounds like an orchestra playing with a DJ. There’s no words just this amazing music, check it out.

Random Favourite

Nintendo-2DS-2

Nintendo 2DS – Red

My boyfriend got himself and I one each as early Christmas gifts, we got them refurbished on the Nintendo website for $75.00, in stores they’re going for $130.00. It’s pretty cool, all 3DS games work on it, you can face people you know online or if your sitting beside the person it just finds their DS. Pretty amazing and really fun.

Thanks for reading, hopefully you guys liked it and maybe helped you find something you might like! Let me know if you’ve tried any of these products and what you thought of them!
