Fire Hooping + Moving & Other Stuff

Long time no post! I feel like it's been forever since I posted something on here. I've just been so busy these last few weeks. My Grandma is visiting from Poland for a couple of weeks. (Look how cute she is.) I quietly celebrated my 27th birthday. I fire hooped for the first time ever. (Little video here and here.) I started stretching my ears and we found our next apartment!!
I feel like there is something going on every weekend. And every other weekend I take the bus home to hang out with my Grandma + family. It's starting to feel too 'busy' for me but I can't really complain because there are months in the winter time when nothing happens and I'm so bored!! ha.

Anyways, fire hooping was awesome! I knew about it last year but I wasn't too confident in my hooping abilities then... I'm still not the best hooper but I can at least keep the hoop up! If you're into hooping at all. I totally suggest you try fire hooping. It is really fun and after you get to say you fire hooped! Not many people can say that. I really want to go again but I think I may be too busy to go. We shall see...
For apartment news, we found a cute place really close to work. We like where we live now but the building is starting to fall apart (like nails coming out of the floor, cracks showing up in our walls and barely any water pressure!!) and worst of all...we haven't had an actual landlord in about 4 months!

So we started looking and we found a place we really love. It's be smaller than our current place but there are so many positives. Like; It's a new building, huge windows so it's super bright, the kitchen has an island, laundry in unit (I'm too excited about this part), Dishwasher, I'll be able to walk to work, I'll be able to walk home for lunch! We are super excited! We move in September. A few days before Fan Expo, so it's going to be a crazy week for us. If you don't see me posting in September it's because I'm unpacking.
Also, Tania and I are going to Wayhome this weekend! I'm excited because I've never been to a real concert or any sort of music fest. They are advertising it like it's going to be very hipster-y/hippy. Think... sitting on a blanket with your friends, all wearing flower crowns, smiling, laughing, all wearing clothes from urban outfitters. But I have a feeling it's going to be very dirty and smelly. I'm picturing garbage everywhere. Over-priced food and water. Huge line ups to use a gross port-a-potty. The hand washing stations running out of soap! NO!

And on top of that Tania and I will be camping there for 3 days, 2 nights with no showers! That's right. No. Showers. They are charging for a shower pass that you can only use once a day. We decided we'll just 'manage' and save some money. Haha. I'm assuming lots of people will be doing the same and if I'm wrong... then they better stay clear of us!! :P

Goodbye to coloured hair

I've been dying my hair funky colours off and on for the past 4 years. (I had red/pink hair for a while and then dyed it black before I went on a big family trip) I've done the most hair dying in the last 2.5 years. I've almost been every colour in the rainbow... and even had rainbow hair! But it's time now, to say goodbye to the funky hair dye life.

About a week ago, I stripped the red out of my hair (as much as I could) and bought a box of dark brown hair dye. My hair actually turned out black but whatever... It was time for a change. I still love coloured hair (plus it's fun to change colours every couple of months) but I hate the work, time and money I had to put into my hair every month. Not only that but I had to buy special shampoos and conditioners that wouldn't strip my dye. Sometimes I would stain my clothes or pillow cases... I could go on and on...

I could write a super long post about all the things I learned about coloured hair. All the pros and cons. How to do it properly. How to take care of it. What to look out for, etc.
Ah.. maybe I will?

Anyways, I'm excited about giving my hair a break and letting it get a bit more healthy. Everyone's always told me I look better with dark hair so maybe I'll play around with different shades of browns and highlights? Who knows, there's so much you can do with hair!


Has anyone else had coloured hair and gone back to something a bit more natural? Do you miss it?

P.S. Happy Canada Day! :]

Review: June Movies


When Marnie Was There
Recommend? Sure
Re-watch? Probably no






I liked this movie but I wanted to really like it. I was expecting something a bit more... magical? The story was good, well it got really good near the end but most of it was a bit slow. (not a bad thing, just a fact) I remember when the movie first came out people were saying how it was a movie about being gay, but it wasn't at all. Just some of the things said and some actions came off a bit strange but at the end it all makes sense. I'm glad I saw this movie but I don't think I'll even need to see it again.


Jurassic World
Recommend? Yes
Re-watch? Yes

I was SO excited for this movie! I loved it. The dinosaurs looked good, the story was decent... lots of nods to the first movie, Jurassic Park. (which I loved). I feel like everyone's seen this movie already but if you haven't yet... and you liked Jurassic Park, then go see this one!
Inside Out
Recommend? Yes!
Re-watch? Yes!

When I first heard what this movie was about, I was like... I can't wait to see how they do this! Very interesting concept. I love how they are thinking outside the box on this one. And it was so good! I cried. Like, sometimes movies make me tear up.... and once in a while I'll shed one single tear. But once in a blue moon I'll actually cry. And I don't even fully understand why I was crying but I wasn't the only one. The whole theatre was fully of sniffles. Aside from a movie (an animated movie!) being so good it brings me to tears... the story was great, something we can all relate to. A movie for the whole family for sure. And I loved Sadness, she was my favourite. I thought Disgust would have been my favourite character because of her design but Sadness won my heart. Phyllis Smith was a perfect choice as the voice for her.

P.S. I think the last Pixar movies that made me cry were probably Brave and Up.
