Five on Friday - October 6, 2017

Happy Friday everyone! I hope you all had a great week - ours was pretty good, but my husband has been out of town again this week. I have been a single mom to 1 kid before, but doing it all by myself with 2 has made for a long week! I'm looking forward to a little r&r this weekend for Thanksgiving! 


Yay - I got a new mask hairband!! How cute is this?! Now, I don't need to look like a kitty cat all the time and can throw in a panda look while masking! But really, I love these for masking. They fit well and cover and hold back all my hair and protect my hairline (plus this was like $2 on ebay so how do you go wrong?!)


Time for another Monthly Pedicure! This is my second time using a gel polish on my toes and I'm pretty hooked! It lasted my for 5 or 6 weeks and still looked good! 

I went with a nice Teal colour - I'm totally loving this shade! It's a good transition to Fall shade while still holding on to a touch of Summer (because even when it snowed this week I still wore my flip flops!)

So, I have been on Weight Watchers now for about 2 months and thought I would share a quick update! I am down 17 pounds all together (hopefully all my turkey this weekend won't put me up a pound or two!) I am actually really enjoying the point system and have been able to follow it really easy. I honestly still go out for meals, treat myself to fast food or sweets here and there, but I am really consciously making better choices. 

I haven't really dove back in to the whole exercise world yet (does baby and mom swim classes count?), but that is my next venture! I have been going for plenty of walks and working on my steps, but I think heading in to month 3, my new goal is to exercise 2 or 3 times a week and then hopefully I can pick up the number a little more (my first month I lost 11 pounds and second month I lost 6).  


Time for a new planner! I'm starting to book appointments and things in 2018 so it is time for a new one - I still love a good paper planner to book all my appointments and blog goodies, so i'm excited to dive in to this! I used a big planner from 1canoe2 last year, so I had to get another one! This planner is huge and sturdy and is so pretty! 


Did you guys see that a new Magic School Bus started on Netflix this week?! How nostalgic - I was always in to science as a kid and loved this show! As my older on was growing up, I got all the old episodes so he could watch it too! Now, i'm putting it on for me and the baby to start our learning early! (Just kidding, it's only for me; but, he loves the colours!)

I hope you all have an amazing weekend - Canadians out there, enjoy your Thanksgiving and turkey dinners! Things might be a little quiet around here as I have lots of family time planned!


  1. I kinda want to watch the new Magic School bus series! Really nice toe polish colour too :)

  2. Haha love the new hair band, so cute! I definitely want to look into them as well!
