Digitech Whammy

Trust me , I didn’t know what a digitech whammy  was but after listening to it when the spouse bought it home , you have to wonder , why didn’t he get it earlier.   Yes , the spouse and his friends love fooling around with their guitars and when he played with his new toy the digitech whammy , wow ! I was indeed impressed.  I knew he played fairly decent but with the digitech whammy , it seems like…

Music Book For Flute

When you live in a small town like I do, sometimes it’s hard to find music books for your kids , so we have to get them online.  The  essential elements flute  was something that I had found online for my kid who is playing the flute in school right now.  Since there isn’t a decent music store in our area, I find it easier and cheaper to purchase the music books that I need or want online .   Plus…

Birthday Present For An Old Fart

Who doesn’t want a prada bag right?  It’s Prada ! after all and if the spouse is willing to get it for me , even a used one , I’m happy with it.  But of course, the spouse would think I’m crazy getting a $2500 handbag and US dollars at that too.  Which means it would come up to about $3000 Cdn. It is a beauty even though it had been used before but $2500 USD can definitely get me…

Music Room For Home

Having a music room at home had been something we had planned to do for the longest time.  Now that the cottage is renovated, we figured we can section out a room in the basement and let the children use it as a music room or even a jamming room for the boys.  Some  headphone extension is definitely required and of course they already have all their instruments, so we need not worry about that.  But to sound proof the…

Kao Liese Creamy Hair Coloring

So I saw a review recently on one of the youtube channel of my favorite vlogger and she was doing her own hair dying with this new product she was using.  I never dye my own hair because I’m afraid that I might mess it up but you and I know that going to a salon is so expensive at times.  I just did my hair recently and even though I wasn’t too happy with it , I had to…

A Bajilion Korean Beauty Products

Easy to get in the states but a lot harder in Canada it would seems.  Why ????  I get upset just thinking about it.  Even Target in USA carries the Laneige brand but not in Canada.  Why???  I’ve written to Target Canada but they say they are now concentrating on opening their stores in Canada and online shopping or different products are still in the line up .  So upsetting ! when we all know that Korean beauty products are…

Maybelline Age Rewind Concealer

I already have several concealers but since everyone on youtube is raving about this one, I decided to try it out.  So what is the verdict?   It was ok, I didn’t find it spectacular or anything. Not something I can do without , I think I really need a high end concealer that double up as a highlighter.  The concealer was like $9.99 + tax I think, so it wasn’t too, too expensive and it took like a million clicks…

Wedding Season ?>

Wedding Season

Wedding season is not coming to an end just because summer is over, in fact I still have several weddings to attend in the fall.  I love weddings with  dj  and dance floor, so that we can dance the night away and enjoy some couple time because it’s so romantic during weddings. I don’t mind live bands as well but I prefer djs as they play the latest songs and have the latest music that everyone like.  I think older…

First Ipsy Bag

I joined Ipsy last month and eagerly awaited for the May Ipsy Bag from United States.  For only $10 USD and shipping of another $4.95 USD , i told myself – what the heck right?  just give it a try and see what all the excitement was about.  Plus, I’m always game to try new things, so why not?  The shipping of the glam bag took about 13 days, which wasn’t bad at all, considering how much you pay for…

No More White Hair

I finally broke down and got my hair dyed, and not just streaks this time, but the entire head – woohoo!  so no more white hair.  I wanted to turn lighter but the hairstylist didn’t think that it was such a good idea and instead chose like a reddish in color for me.  I’m ok with the color but I would still prefer to go lighter the next time.  Why?  because it’s really bright when the sun hits the hair…
