The next chapter in my life..

It's been really sinking into me lately that I'm actually married. I'm legally tied to my hubby @vancitycanuck. We are in a legal union together, we're in it 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. We are now husband and wife. Its still hard calling J "my husband", I usually start coughing because I can't believe I'm saying the word Husband haha.

After the wedding, I started to realize a few things. I'm 30, and married. What the heck am I doing still chatting with immature people?

It hit me suddenly one day, somebody on my msn list sent me a link of something incredibly funny and incredibly immature. Sure, I found it funny for a second and after that second I found him/her and the joke very immature. A million throughts ran through my head, and I still thought about it everyday.. until I wanted to get it off my chest today and write about it on this blog. I realized this person is a source of immaturity and will always be until I stop communicating with him/her. From that day on, I just decided to avoid the immaturity and move on with my life and move on from those kinds of people.

This all ties into the question that gets asked me to time and time again after I got married.. "Do you feel any different now that you're married?"

The answer is Yes. Now that I'm married, I feel some topics and some people are more immature than others. I'm trying to put things very diplomatically here but I've had discussions with my married friends lately and I think being married brings on certain mature tendancies on how you view life. It's a different feeling. The funny thing is that after a few aquaintances of mine got married, they kinda turned "snobby" in my eyes. Now I can see where they were coming from. Once you get married, you do find certain persons lifestyles a bit immature. Its a feeling that you would rather not socialize with them sober.

Knowing that you're married and equally responsible now for somebody that is not your blood relative is very sobering. This also goes with having a baby, I would imagine having a baby is the more sobering experience in anybody's life and koodos to those who have kids(trust me, my biological clock is tickin right up there!).

A new chapter in my life.. another step in my adult life.

Webber Naturals Apple Cider Vinegar

This is a product I cannot live without. I've been taking Apple Cider Vinegar pills for the past 3 years and its probably prevented a lot of nasty nausea attacks.

My mom introduced me to apple cider when one day I came over for dinner and things felt a little too greasy in my innards. She told me to take these two horse pills that smelled awful. I took them and an hour or two later I was feeling fine. I have a big tendency to always feel nauseated when I eat anything and so I always need a cup of strong coffee, bubbly coke, a big cup of tea or something acidic to just cut the "grease" after every meal. Sometimes I can't have any of those so I take 2 Apple Cider vinegar pills during or right after my meal and things go smoothly~

I feel my fake internet research to see what apple cider exactly did. One said it was a fat burner... it is definitely NOT a fat burner. It definitely helps me digest my meals a bit better and thats why I use it.

I recommend Apple Cider Vinegar pills but please do your research and see if its right for you~

The Body Shop's Coconut Body Butter

As you all know, I have the driest skin on the planet. I received this butter as a bridal shower present from my sister-in-law Sandy(it was part of a gift with the scrub and shower creme). She said she loved the smell of coconut and thought I'll love it too.. well I do! I have the tendency to order the usually 3 types of gelato, one being Coconut, Green tea and/or durian mango or some southasian exotic fruit.

When I came back totally sunburnt from Mexico I was peeling like a banana and I think I used 5 different lotions and butters one me, this being one of them. I used the Olive body butter on @vancitycanuck and I used the Coconut body butter on myself.

I love this body butter! Its not too greasy(for me) and I smell like I'm vacation 24/7. It feels my elbows and knees moisturized all day. The gift box Sandy gave me came with the Coconut exfoliater and that.. I don't like so much. It smells good when you open it but as you rub it on your body, it turns into this weird chemical smell. ew. Stick with the body butter! Also it came with a shower creme and its heavenly!

I definitely recommend this body butter and the coconut shower creme, it moisturizes and it smells like vacation!

Duo Eyelash Adhesive & Ardell Fashion Lashes

So I have jumped on the eyelash bandwagon and I love to wear fake eyelashes. Yes.. I even wore them to the office without anybody noticing too much. Having fake nails and wearing fake eyelashes keeps a peppy step in my walk. Yes it sounds fake but ask any girl who wears them, they put a little luxe in your life~

I occasionally wore eyelashes here and there but seeing there is a big trend where girls all not just wearing them to club nite but to the office, I'd thought I invest in some good glue and glasses. I usually buy my synthetic lashes at the Daiso store in Aberdeen mall and they work great. The glue I have now is the one that dries into a gummy yellow color. I lost my previous one that turns dark so I bought the dark again. I also got the Ardell lashes made out of real hair and see how they work out. We'll see!

Neutrogena's All-in-One Make-up Removing Cleansing Wipes

Sale at London Drugs for $5.25

I ran out of makeup remover wipes so I had to get another batch. In the past I used Garnier's green cleansing wipes, Loreal's age-something or another cleansing wipes. This time I wanted under $10 dollars that didn't sting my eyes.

I was looking for wipes based on their price, sheets per package and its ability to remove makeup. I looked at Pond's which was 25 @ $8.99, Clean and Clear's new Makeup Remover line 25 @ $7.99, Garnier's 30 @ $9.99 then as I walked away I saw a itty bitty yellow sale sign near the Neutrogena area, 25 @ Sale!! $5.25. After walking up and down the aisle like a supermodel I finally decided I'd try out the Neutrogena wipes for the price point(and the fact I do not have a paycheque coming in).

As always I soon as I came home, I tried the wipe out and it was a great! It didn't sting my eyes, removed all my makeup, left a really fresh feeling on my face and never dried it out(as I have super dry skin). I might go back and buy another pack if its still on sale.. hehe Oh~ the original price for these babies were $10.23 or something.
