>Webber Naturals Apple Cider Vinegar April 30, 2009

This is a product I cannot live without. I’ve been taking Apple Cider Vinegar pills for the past 3 years and its probably prevented a lot of nasty nausea attacks.

My mom introduced me to apple cider when one day I came over for dinner and things felt a little too greasy in my innards. She told me to take these two horse pills that smelled awful. I took them and an hour or two later I was feeling fine. I have a big tendency to always feel nauseated when I eat anything and so I always need a cup of strong coffee, bubbly coke, a big cup of tea or something acidic to just cut the “grease” after every meal. Sometimes I can’t have any of those so I take 2 Apple Cider vinegar pills during or right after my meal and things go smoothly~

I feel my fake internet research to see what apple cider exactly did. One said it was a fat burner… it is definitely NOT a fat burner. It definitely helps me digest my meals a bit better and thats why I use it.

I recommend Apple Cider Vinegar pills but please do your research and see if its right for you~

>The Body Shop’s Coconut Body Butter

As you all know, I have the driest skin on the planet. I received this butter as a bridal shower present from my sister-in-law Sandy(it was part of a gift with the scrub and shower creme). She said she loved the smell of coconut and thought I’ll love it too.. well I do! I have the tendency to order the usually 3 types of gelato, one being Coconut, Green tea and/or durian mango or some southasian exotic fruit.

When I came back totally sunburnt from Mexico I was peeling like a banana and I think I used 5 different lotions and butters one me, this being one of them. I used the Olive body butter on @vancitycanuck and I used the Coconut body butter on myself.

I love this body butter! Its not too greasy(for me) and I smell like I’m vacation 24/7. It feels my elbows and knees moisturized all day. The gift box Sandy gave me came with the Coconut exfoliater and that.. I don’t like so much. It smells good when you open it but as you rub it on your body, it turns into this weird chemical smell. ew. Stick with the body butter! Also it came with a shower creme and its heavenly!

I definitely recommend this body butter and the coconut shower creme, it moisturizes and it smells like vacation!

 

>Duo Eyelash Adhesive & Ardell Fashion Lashes

So I have jumped on the eyelash bandwagon and I love to wear fake eyelashes. Yes.. I even wore them to the office without anybody noticing too much. Having fake nails and wearing fake eyelashes keeps a peppy step in my walk. Yes it sounds fake but ask any girl who wears them, they put a little luxe in your life~

I occasionally wore eyelashes here and there but seeing there is a big trend where girls all not just wearing them to club nite but to the office, I’d thought I invest in some good glue and glasses. I usually buy my synthetic lashes at the Daiso store in Aberdeen mall and they work great. The glue I have now is the one that dries into a gummy yellow color. I lost my previous one that turns dark so I bought the dark again. I also got the Ardell lashes made out of real hair and see how they work out. We’ll see!

 

>Neutrogena’s All-in-One Make-up Removing Cleansing Wipes

Sale at London Drugs for $5.25

I ran out of makeup remover wipes so I had to get another batch. In the past I used Garnier’s green cleansing wipes, Loreal’s age-something or another cleansing wipes. This time I wanted under $10 dollars that didn’t sting my eyes.

I was looking for wipes based on their price, sheets per package and its ability to remove makeup. I looked at Pond’s which was 25 @ $8.99, Clean and Clear’s new Makeup Remover line 25 @ $7.99, Garnier’s 30 @ $9.99 then as I walked away I saw a itty bitty yellow sale sign near the Neutrogena area, 25 @ Sale!! $5.25. After walking up and down the aisle like a supermodel I finally decided I’d try out the Neutrogena wipes for the price point(and the fact I do not have a paycheque coming in).

As always I soon as I came home, I tried the wipe out and it was a great! It didn’t sting my eyes, removed all my makeup, left a really fresh feeling on my face and never dried it out(as I have super dry skin). I might go back and buy another pack if its still on sale.. hehe Oh~ the original price for these babies were $10.23 or something.

>Kingyo Izakaya Denman. St. Vancouver BC April 29, 2009

(above are the 4 dishes out of 11 we had at Kingyo)

Tonight my hubby @vancitycanuck (on twitter) and I decided to go for our celebratory dinner. We were celebrating that it’s been a month since we’ve gotten married, sold our condo at the same time, moved out by ourselves and moved in by ourselves, signed off all the papers etc. This has been a well deserved dinner and so picking where I wanted to eat was a big deal.

I was done eating white food since coming back from Mexico and I really wanted to get the bad taste left in my mouth since eating “sushi” in Mexico. The thoughts of tasteless lukewarm seabass sashimi left a very.. very sour taste in my month. Since coming back, I’ve been dreaming of izakaya and fresh Vancouver seafood. Tonight was the night..

We ate our hearts out(especially my little heart).. We asked the waitress, which was so kind to us, how many dishes usually a couple ate, she said it averages around 5-6 dishes…

My hubby and I polished off 10 izakaya dishes, he had the sapporo and I had the asahi and took home the stewed pork belly “kakuni” and half of the japanese style calamari. Towards the end we were feeling quite full so I didn’t order the almond tofu. damn! The waitress who took care of our bill was quite amazed and asked us for our opinion on the food.. at this point we were the only party other than a big group of japanese students left in the restaurant. I told her everything was delish! The service was great and the waitresses were terrrrific!!! Our bill came out to a mear $150 which was much less than expected~

I love izakaya and tried all the Guu’s, Gyoza King, Nann Chu and now Kingyo.. Kingyo was definitely upper crust than Guu but in the end, I think I would go back to our old standby.. the Guu in gastown.

 

>Our Honeymoon.. April 28, 2009

Its been a month since me and @vancitycanuck got married. It’s also been a month since we’ve come back from our honeymoon in the Maya Riveria. We stayed at the Imperial Valentin Maya and its ranked #14 of the resort located in the Mayan according to TripAdvisor. There’s a reason why its ranked #14 and not #67..

It was so beautiful there and the weather was fantastic! I recommend visiting any resort on the Mayan side of Mexico. The beach, the water.. was fabulous.

No. Anybody’s whose married can tell you that.
