Five on Friday - September 3, 2021 ~ Blind Date With A Book YYC, Wedding Anniversary, New Planners, August Scratch Monthly Mani Kit & Calgary Farmyard

Happy Friday everyone! Hope you all had a good week - mine was good and you guys, my oldest kid started Grade 11 yesterday and I can't even believe it! I'm looking forward to the long weekend (and I'm going out for drinks with some friends tonight!)

Okay, I'm so excited to share that I'm starting a new little endeavour - it's a fun little "Blind Date With A Book" thing! It's called @blinddatewithabookyyc and if you are reader, I would love for you to give my new page a follow and see if there is anything that catches your eye! 

I think I'm going to keep this an instagram/facebook marketplace thing for right now. I have such a book buying thing, that I thought I'd turn it in to a fun little shop - I've seen these and they look great, but I've noticed the ones online are a little pricey. I'm keeping my prices from $4 - $12. Also, I'm not going to make a shop because I'm not amazing at shipping things, so I'm hoping the bulk of the buys will be within Calgary, but if you are interested outside of Calgary, I will ship at cost! Just send me a message - I hope you guys love this as much as me! 


Last weekend was my 6 year wedding anniversary! It was pretty quiet - my husband worked all day so we kept it pretty easy and ordered in. Elliott helped me make a chocolate cake and we celebrated with a good bottle of wine!


Does September get anyone else in to planning mode?! I only love yearly planners January - December, not the ones that start in September, but I always tend to pick mine out early so that I get a good one! I got a couple of planners from Watkins Media and I'm so excited to share them! 

The Every Day Matter 2022 Diary is so cool - it has a great weekly layout, as well as monthly spreads. Plus, it has little spots for lists and gratitudes and extras like that! I love it! And, then there is The Astrology Diary 2022 is so neat - it comes in 4 day spreads, so lots of room to write, and then there is something about astrology every day, so it's perfect for any of those who are following astrology. Each planner is $21.95 CAN. 


I just got my August 2021 Scratch Monthly Mani Kit and as always, they are super cute! This is an easy, affordable subscription that features nail wraps from GoScrachIt that are exclusive to the kit each month and designed by NinaNailedIt!

The Scratch Monthly Mani Kit is $18.00 US monthly with free shipping everywhere! Each month you get an exclusive set of wraps that aren't available for purchase and a little extra mani goodie with it!

This month's subscription came with:
  • Party Time nail wraps
  • nail art stickers 
I have to say, these nail wraps are easily my favourite nail wraps to use - I have tried quite a few wraps and nothing compares! You can see past reviews and nail looks on Scratch wraps here if you are interested! These ones are so fun! 


This past weekend I took Elliott to the Calgary Farmyard and we had fun! Elliott really wanted to feed the animals, but he got chased by a chicken and was a little apprehensive with the rest of the animals. He still had fun with the slides and activities, and they still have a few sunflowers hanging on! 

I hope you all have a good weekend! 


  1. I love your blind date book idea with the little summary of what each book is about on the outside! It's so cute and I hope people enjoy it!
