I finally went to the gym...

..after a month of not going and can I say it kicked my butt?  When I am in gym mode, I feel gross when I miss a week at the gym but somehow I got into a slump and couldn't be bothered going.  What finally got me to go was seeing those gym fees coming out of my bank account.  Nothing like money to motivate you.

I did some cardio & while it kicked my butt, I survived.  I am hoping to do weights later this week and chances of survival are slim.

Mount that account onto your pc

Did you end up getting that account?  Well if you did, you probably will love it more if you mounted it on your pc as another drive.  Follow the instructions here and you'll be good to go.  For whatever reason, I had to use http instead of https to get it working but using it saves having to use their interface to upload things.  When trying to upload multiple files through their website, it would freeze after the first file and I have way too many files to upload them one at a time.

Sephora F&F 20% Sale

Sephora is having it's annual friends & family 20% off sale till Nov 2nd.  Unfortunately it's not available for Canadian residents however I am lucky enough to have my man friend living there and was able to take advantage.  Not only do you need a US address, you also need a US credit card to pay with!  I almost bought with my credit card but couldn't get through the checkout and had to get the boy to order it with his US credit card.  I bought the Urban Decay Naked Palette which I've been lusting for a while and with the 20% off, it was a no brainer.  I secretly wanted to buy more but didn't want the boy to think I was crazy so I had to tone it down.  Why doesn't Sephora extend the Friends and Family deal to us canucks?

50GB of free space for iphones or ipads with

Do you have an Apple iPhone or iPad?  If so, go get this before December 2nd! is offering users with an iPhone or iPad 50GB for life if you register before December 2nd.  I signed up using my iPad and while I love the dropbox interface more, I want to back up all my pictures and it's well over the free space dropbox gives me.  And well, I am cheap and not looking to pay for online storage when I already have an external hard drive. 

The great thing about is you can also download the app onto your android phone and login using the same details as your iProduct and enjoy the 50GB.  I am uploading about 7GB of historical pics from my pc to my box account as we speak.

Breaking Bad & The Wire

So I've been a bit of a hermit lately because I've been in a bit of a funk lately.  So what have I been doing while shunning the outside world?  Watching Breaking Bad & The Wire.  I just finished Breaking Bad & holy crap!  It's probably now my favorite show ever.  I used to think Dexter was #1 but the characters in Breaking Bad reeled me in.  With Dexter, I find the main character is strong and the others are great as supporting characters.  With Breaking Bad, I feel like several of them could carry the show on their own.  Plus it doesn't hurt that I find Aaron Paul is incredibly hot!

Now, I just started The Wire but I am just not quite at the same place of love for the show like I am with Breaking Bad.  According to IMDB, The Wire is #2 in terms of highest rated TV series while Breaking Bad is #8 so I am giving The Wire a legitimate chance to win my love.

Redken Hot Sets 22 Thermal Setting Mist - Love

Here's the deal.  I have crazy curly hair.  I used to hate it but I've learned to love it like that crazy step sister you learn to love over the years.  In university my routine was often sitting in front of the TV after a shower and straightening the hell outta my hair while watching some late night talk shows... Now, I can't be bothered and straighten it maybe once a month and leave it curly/wavy whatever you want to call it the rest of the time.  The thing is I like the side bangs/waved look in the front with curly hair but I've had the hardest time making it work on my hair because after a few hours, the bangs portion of my hair would fall flat after styling it. 

I've tried different gels, hairsprays, serums, ect and nothing worked.  It'd look great right after but would eventually fall flat and too much of it would make my hair stiff to touch.  I was at Trade Secrets last week and randomly stopped by to ask if they had any suggestions and they told me to try Redkens Hot Sets 22 Thermal Setting Mist (say that five times fast!) and I figured I had nothing to loose.  Well I tried it this morning & can I say I love it!  It's a little wierd...after I sprayed my bangs it felt sticky and I was hesitant to style it like that but I still did and the wave has stayed in my hair the whole day.  I tried to take a picture of my bang area at the end of the day and this is what it looks like.  Keep in mind I wasn't trying to curl my hair.  I just wanted it nicely waving in the front and framing my face and it held that look.
