5 for Friday

4:00 AM


If you follow me on instagram you already know that I kind of posted some Halloween overload pictures last weekend.  I decided to be a sugar skull for Halloween because it was just easier.  Boyfriend didn’t have time for a costume nor did he really feel up to it (he’s been really sick) so he just took one of his hoodies that zips up into a skull haha.  I thought it was perfectly fine.  We didn’t do anything crazy, just handed out candy to the handful of trick or treaters.  What happened to trick or treating?  I feel like when I was younger the streets were filled and now there’s almost no one.  I’m assuming it has something to do with trunk or treat and I’m sure parents are a little more cautious nowadays with the candy their children get because of all the crazies out there.  Regardless I was satisfied with Halloween, I was pretty proud of the sugar skull I did, it was wayyyy better than the one in my tutorial.


Ok, so one of my blogger friends over at Flower City Fashionista contacted me asking if I would review some shampoo.  It’s a shampoo and conditioning brand called Monat.  The product is botanically based, cruelty free, and made in America.  They are the only naturally based anti aging product on the market that is clinically proven to regrow hair.  It increases manageability and shine.  This product also helps maintain pigment, which means no premature gray hair!  Can I get a heck yea on this one?!  My lovely blogger friend said that she recommends people to go VIP which is $19.99 for a year, free shipping, 15% discount and get product free when you refer 3 friends.  She’s also currently building a team so if you want to become a shampoo tiger contact me and I’ll send her all of your information!  Now what did I actually think of the product?  The product itself really cleaned my hair.  I felt like it really stripped all of the bad grossness that was on my hair.  Whether it be product, or even whatever bad things are in the air.  My hair felt so fresh and alive.  Once I started styling my hair it had so much extra volume which is something I look for along with keeping my color fresh since I’ve been coloring my hair for the past year.  All in all it’s a great product and I definitely recommend trying it out!

Lokai Bracelet

I’ve been seeing these Lokai bracelets and never knew what they meant until I actually looked up the website and saw a little picture on Facebook.  I’ve been having a rough couple of months as you probably know from my posts this week and I decided to get one for me and one for boyfriend because we are really corny and like having “best friend” type of things haha.  We already have a Chinese 5 element bracelet that one of our friends made for both of us.  Yes, we are biffles haha!  Anyway, I got myself the breast cancer awareness one and I got boyfriend the regular one.  The meaning behind this bracelet is what really sucked me in and I had to get one!  Ok, so there’s a white and black bead, which are across from each other and around them are clear (or in my case for my breast cancer awareness, pink).  The white bead has water from Mt. Everest inside of it since that is the highest point in the world that we can get to.  This is used to symbolize the highest point in your life, and to remind you to stay humble.  The black bead has mud from the Dead Sea inside because this is the lowest point in the world that we can get to.  This is to symbolize the lowest point in your life and to stay hopeful.  The beads in between are clear because everyone has their own story and it is to remind you to stay balanced in life.  I love the message behind these bracelets so I had to get one. 

Walking Dead

For those of you who don’t want any spoilers from this past episode just skip to the next paragraph.  I honestly am mad at the Walking Dead.  How can they end the one episode with Glen looking like he’s getting ripped to shreds and then this episode they jump to how Morgan became the man he is today?!  I need to know if Glen is actually dead!  I was extremely upset with that scene.  Anyway, this past episode with Morgan’s rebirth so to speak I really got upset at the part where the walker was eating Tabitha.  I was not very happy about that.  Of course I wasn’t happy about Eastman, but I feel like Morgan needed something extreme to happen in his life in order for him to change.  I’m excited for this week’s episode but I have a feeling we aren’t going to find out about Glen until after the mid season finale.  I’m going to be extremely mad if that’s the case.  If Walking Dead did kill Glen, you did a terrible job because he was supposed to have an awesome death in the comic and shame on you if you made it this terrible.

Epilepsy Awareness

Last year I did a whole series about Epilepsy Awareness, because November is Epilepsy Awareness month.  I wrote about my own experiences and next week I will have a purple theme on the blog!  Stay tuned everyone.
