Throw Back Thursday - Part 2!

I'm getting this "Throwback Thursday" post in before the end of Thursday... then it would have had to be a "Flashback Friday" post, and that just wouldn't have been the same.

Anyway.... as promised in my last "#TBT" post.... I will flashback to some memorable reality tv moments.  I won't say "my favourite" moments, because some of these moments... I hated, but... let's admit it, I love having moments to hate... so they are included.

Here we go!

Big Brother All Stars - Diary room "phone calls" between Mike "Boogie" & Dr. Will :

In Season 2, I hated these guys... I prayed every week they would be evicted.  In the end... WIll won that Season.  When I heard Mike and Will were back for Big Brother All Stars, I cringed, but I enjoyed watching them more than I'll admit.  Here is some of why I enjoyed them:


Big Brother 8 – Jen Crying over her picture:
Ok... I will admit... despite the fact that I am a major Big Brother fan, I frequently forget everything about one season the minute a new season begins.  At this time, I remember virtually nothing about Season 8... that being said, I came across this video on YouTube, and I remember the rage I felt when I watched this ridiculous girl cry... and not just cry... but SOB... over HER PICTURE.  I get it... the house makes you a different person.  Being cut off from the rest of the world may make you a little nuts, but come on... let's put things in perspective here.  It's a freaking picture!  (Do you sense my rage?)  Anyway, enjoy this ridiculous video (click on the link): 

Big Brother 2 – Shannon scrubs the toilet with Hardy’s toothbrush:
Season 2 of Big Brother... the whole Big Brother thing was still pretty new... and so were other reality tv shows.  So nothing was more scandalous... than Shannon scrubbing the toilet with Hardy's toothbrush.  I don't remember what drove her to do this, other than the fact that she didn't like him.  I remember Shannon for a couple of reasons... she was a jerk (I could have used more colouful language, but let's leave it at that), and for her "showmance" with Dr Will.  Watch her in one of her jerkier moments... as she cleans the toilet with Hardy's toothbrush.

Big Brother (I don't remember the season number) - Chima get’s expelled from the house:
This is probably one of the more ridiculous moments I remember.  So... here's a little Big Brother 101:
- You live in a house with other people... cut off from the outside world
- Cameras follow you 24 hours a day
- You have to wear a mic.

Those are the basics.  Sure, there are other rules like "don't threaten people" and "don't cheat in challenges", but those go without saying. I would have thought that "wear your microphone on a television show" would also go without saying, but apparently not.  I don't remember why Chima was in such a ridiculously bad mood, but she did not want to wear her mic, and she also didn't want to go to the Diary room when she was going to be reprimanded for it.  She was kicked out of the house as a result.  Such a stupid reason for being expelled.  Enjoy the temper tantrum:


 That's all for this week!

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…
