Countdown to Big Brother 16!

The countdown is definitely on in my house (well, for me at least), Big Brother 16 premiers Wednesday!  Which means I will soon be flooding all of my social media feeds with Big Brother related tweets every Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday!  Can you tell I'm excited by all of my exclamation points?!?!  Anyway, as part of my "countdown to the first show", I've done a little digging around and found out some of the scoop as to what we have to look forward to this summer.

***Warning**** Don't read any further if you prefer to wait until the first night.

1 - The newest Big Brother twist is that this season there will be 2 HOH's crowned every week.  Each HOH nominates two houseguests (so 4 nominees all together).  Then the 2 HOH's will participate in a "Battle of the Block".  The winner of this challenge gets to stay HOH and their nominees remain.  So what does this mean?  A lot more drama.  It means 4 people will be ticked off this week instead of 2.  Also, we will most certainly hear a lot more "don't worry about it, you're just being put up as a pawn".

2 - There is apparently a houseguest who has previously tweeted homophobic and racist comments.  Wonderful (sarcasm)... as if we didn't have enough of that in Big Brother 15.  I wasn't going to reveal his name, but it will all come out anyway.  His name is Caleb Reynolds.

3 - Caleb, the same houseguest mentioned in point # 2 also has a video of himself killing a wild boar with a stick.  Wait... is this Survivor?  Or Big Brother?  Anyway, he describes himself as an avid outdoorsman, and apparently that was part of his outdoorsman lifestyle (?)

4 - America will apparently have influence of some kind over a houseguest (perhaps like America's Player?  I'm not sure).  Last week on CBS's website you can vote for "Team America".  The description appeared as follows:  "If you had to form an alliance with one of the House Guests who would you select? Choose wisely, your vote will impact the game."  Ooo... intriguing.

So there are a few tidbits to get you revved up for Wednesday's episode.  Be sure to head to the CBS website to check out all of the Houseguest profiles there.

7 Tips to Making Travel Easier

Travel is honestly one of my favourite topics of conversation.  I'm sure that's not shocking to anyone that knows me and/or has read this blog.  I've been asked before to share some of my tips and tricks for easy travel - here are some of my favourites.  Keep in mind that not all of these are ideal for every trip, so it depends on what kind of travel you're doing, but hopefully you find some good information.

1 - Store your passports somewhere that is easily accessible.... but not TOO easily accessible
This seems like a confusing tip, but here's what I mean.  Have you ever been in that moment of boarding and you're frantically searching your carry-ons for where you put the passports?  I've been there.  Those are stressful moments.  You don't want to leave your passports too easily accessible, as they can easily be taken from your bags, but you need them close by, how do you handle that?    I use a carry-on bag that has an inside zipper pocket.  I dedica…

Product Review: Bare Blossom Skincare & Organics

I've mentioned before that I haven't traditionally been the biggest beauty product or makeup user.  But in recent years, my skin has changed and I need to take care of it better than I have been.  This is where Bare Blossom Skincare & Organics comes in.  They offer a range of skincare and other organic products that are locally made in my home province of New Brunswick!

I decided to give these products a try after seeing a few posts on Facebook about them, and that they offered a "sample pack", which offered some sample sizes of a lot of their products, so it was an opportunity to try a number of products without committing to full size.

The first product I tried was the "Goddess Face Mask".  The texture is very similar to "mud".  It can dry out a little if not used right away, but just adding a tiny bit of water and working it through gets it ready for application.

You don't need much, but just apply to your entire face.  It goes on prett…
