Custom Running Shoes? Say What?

image

If you have a hard time finding running shoes like I do that look cute and fit your feet you’re not alone in the quest. Why is it more often than not you find a cute pair online or even in store but when you go to look for your size either they have nothing or what they do have isn’t cute what’s so ever.

So my mother bought her self new shoes there really cute Skechers so I go online to look for my size and they only go up to women’s size 11, seriously why can’t shoe company’s make larger sizes. Not everyone has small ass feet! It’s like those damn wig company’s do it as well make a few large sizes but not in every style same goes for clothing.

Anyways I go onto New Balance because my last set of runners came from that company they aren’t cute in the least in fact they had nothing cute in a woman’s 13 then or now. And the ones I almost ordered in a 12 were bright pink but I decided not to go through with it. Then my father said well Nike should do larger sizes hell they do make female basketball shoes. So I went to Nike.com and bam lots of shoes heck they even have a section called NikeID which is where you can customize your own shoe. Everything from Color patterns. Lace colors, heal Color, as well as logo and all that fun stuff.

The shoe that I went with is called Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 32 Photosynthesis iD. It’s a unisex shoe in the sense that men and women can pick all the same colors and patterns as either gender. I had to order a men’s 11.5 to make up to a women’s 13 because when you go to pick women’s the size only goes up to a size 12. In is shoe as well many others except basketball shoes. I didn’t know sizing and first spoke to one person who didn’t know what was what and then I spoke to someone else who was able to help me out with sizing.

In the end I think my custom runners look pretty fabulous and my logo on the top of the  tongue of the runner on the right foot it says Diva and on the left my initials in pink of course. This model with tax came to $225.00, shipping was free and I’ll have it near the end of May. P.S. It’s a floral pattern. At least with these runners I got to pick all the colors and make it my own. Most shoes you can’t. Also another great website for anyone who’s interested in designing your own fabulous shoes such as heels or sandals check out Shoes Of Prey.

What Are Your 3 Makeup Products To Have On A Desert Island?

image

Which items from your makeup would you pick if you were stranded on a desert island and why?.

  1. Physicians formula super cc plus cream in light / medium
  2. Brown Mascara any brand
  3. Pink lip gloss any brand

First thing is Physicians formula because it has a SPF of 30 it’s an amazing product and it makes my skin look flawless. And I wanna look good when I get rescued hehe.

I would want brown mascara because I could use it as a brow filler as well as a natural looking mascara to define the lashes as well brows. So I’m getting a two in one combo.

Last but not least pink lip gloss because again I could double it up as a blush by putting a little bit on the cheeks and making my lips look fuller and teeth whiter. Pink makes the teeth look brighter.

In the end when I get rescued I’ll look flawless yet natural and fully made up looking cute. Which products would you use and why?.

Blondes, Redheads, Brunettes Oh My!

2005 – 2006

The past two nights I have had dreams of me with different hair colors. The night before I had a dream that I changed my hair Color to red. The whole dream was me with my hair red and being a redhead and rocking like a ginger red Color.

Last nights dream I had changed my hair to a reddish brown. And the whole dream was me with brown hair. I have no idea what these dreams mean. Maybe it’s just me thinking of my past experience with hair dye.

Back in 2005 I went to the hair salon and went blonde after that I would do boxed dye from the drug store and stayed blonde for quite some time. Then in 2006 I wanted to go fire engine red. Which as you can clearly see in the photo a bright red and yes that was my bio hair then not a wig. Well after about two days it washed out and made my hair turn orange.

Of course I was not going to get stuck with orange hair I went back to the drug store and bought another box of hair dye in a reddish brown Color. The photo below the red one is not long after I believe.

That was A. The longest my hair had been in quite some time and B. Sadly trich had shown its ugly face and not long after I had to start wearing wigs full-time again.

Sure changing my hair Color is for some reason always on my mind I’m never happy for long and am always wanting to switch up my natural hair Color. But I’m resisting the urge though it gets hard sometimes because I have flash moments of just being sick of my hair lol. I’m sure all girls/guys know what’s that like.

I would have to say if you ever want to change your bio hair do so with a wig instead of full on hair dye. Less damage, less  breakage and more cost-effective. Or just learning to accept your natural color.

Are you addicted to changing your hair Color as much as I am? Comment below.

 

 

Life Update for April

Lordy it’s been very interesting the past few months first things first. I did pay off one of my credit cards and canceled it so proud of my self for doing that. One less debt to worry about.

I had gone on a fun date with one guy that I’m still talking to from time to time. He’s much taller than me and a real funny guy. I do plan to meet up with him again if he comes back to Ottawa or when I go to Toronto when I go to visit friends.

Then there was this other guy that lived pretty far away we had connected and it was going pretty fast. Though we never physically met we did Skype a lot and text and all of that. However more often than not we butted heads and till I decided it was best to part ways.

My hair journey is going well it’s getting pretty long as are my roots. I’m on this new kick of letting my natural color come through. I want to say it’s more of a light brown then a dark brown. I have a lot of colors in my hair though it’s hard not to want to Color my hair because I’m so addicted to it.

Ive started to do Oil Pulling with my favourite natural oil coconut oil, god this stuff is amazing and so versatile. My new plan this year is to pay down my other credit card and enjoy my time with good friends and family and work on my self.

 

Hello Area Rug

imageI’ve been wanting a new area rug for a while now. The one I had was super old had it for years though I loved the design it’s never been cleaned overly and it just didn’t suit me any longer nor did the colors really fit with the other colors I have going on but the deep red. Also Diva has laid on it and because of her tinkling issue it was time to get rid of the old and bring in the new. If you get what I’m saying lmao.

I was on The Home Depot website where I found this gem they have it for $44.00 info taken from their site

Assorted Bound Area Rug 5 Feet x 7 Feet Area Rug
This residential area rug is versatile and ideal for medium to high traffic areas. Available in an assortment of colours and designs making it simple to find the one for your space. Machine made with durable synthetic fibres, this rug is treated for stain protection for easy maintenance.

  • Treated for stain protection
  • Durable bound finishing
  • Made of synthetic fibres for easy maintenance

I was thinking of getting a light cream Color because I’m tired of dark coloured rugs butimage then saw this like light turquoise Color I’m not to sure what to call it but it’s super pretty. It ties all my other light turquoise coloured pieces in very nicely. Also the price was perfect. Since selling my black suede boots to a friend on the weekend I used some of that money to buy my new area rug. So it’s money well spent I think. Diva approves of the new rug too as seen here.

I love home decor.

No More Internet Dating For Awhile Thanks!

I had written a huge post this morning didn’t leave it public for long then I made it private and till just removing it all together just a few moments ago. I realized that oil and water don’t mix. I’ve also realized I’m worth much more than some think about me. With out giving details away or making this a he said she said bitch fest post all I’m going to say is that when a guy gives out low blows the best way to deal with that is to wish the other person in finding happiness and well with their life. Typically in the past I would stoop to their low level but I’d rather leave the situation with respect and dignity and wish the other person well.

Hello Oil Pulling – Say What?

 

If you haven’t heard of oil pulling your not alone. When I googled coconut oil and the benefits of using this miracle oil I was blown away at

A. How many uses it can be used for

and

B. How cheap it is to buy.

I first started using it on my hair doing scalp treatments once a week I sware to god my hair has grown so quickly and is so much more healthy because of those treatments. I also only wash my face with it and though I still do have some break outs nothing like before. I also use it as an acne spot treatment. As a makeup remover and in shower moisturizer as well as just a moisturizer. Hand and nail cuticle oil andnow I’ve started to do oil pulling.

From what I have read up about Oil Pulling is its amazing for healthy teeth and gums. It removes toxins with in the mouth and it also whitens teeth. It’s been around for over 3.000 years.

Basically you want to use about a Teaspoon or more nothing overly big because it does get liquefied in your mouth but you really need to use 100% extra virgin coconut oil. They say to get the best benefits to swish it in your mouth for about 20 minutes and don’t swallow it. You would be amazed how quickly 20 minutes go by when you keep busy. When you go to spit it out do so in the trash not the sink. It’s normal to be a thicker milky Color when you spit it out, Then brush as usual. I’ve read that it’s best to do it first thing in the morning but really anytime is fine. Because I’ve done it twice now and I haven’t done it first thing in the morning only because I forget too in fact I maybe do it once a week. To me if I remember too I still reap from the benefits.

Anyways if you want more detailed info Google Oil Pulling.

New Layout!

Hi everyone,

I’ve decided to update my home here to something updated and fun. Still very manageable but also new and improved. Especially the home page  now when you go to the home page you get to see  8 posts with titles and photos.

I’ve  also decided to remove the Dating category all together because I’m focusing on my relationship. Though if you go to  search for dating you will still find older posts but as far as me writing anything new with dating or my current relationship I’m keeping all of it off of here.

I hope everyone enjoys the new layout and please share your thoughts below.

Saying Goodbye To All Hair Dye! – Hello Healthy Hair!

image

Is it possible that I can actually do this? That’s something I want to work on doing. When I was little I had an amazing hair Color it was natural and I have every shade in my hair. Red, blonde,gold,brown kind of like a golden brown. Anyways I’ve always liked to change my hair and every time I grow my hair out I go through different shades. But lately I’ve been on a kick of having the healthiest hair I can have and let’s be honest here. It would be more cost-effective to skip all future dye and just let my hair grow. Of course I have to take care of the Color that’s in it right now.

But if I can just keep getting my regular trims every 4 months to remove the split ends. And keep doing my coconut oil deep conditioning treatments and use my good shampoo and conditioner. My hair will be in the best healthiest condition. And if the roots really become a huge problem then I’ll sport a wig or two while I’m growing the blonde out or rock a headband or something.

Also what is really in all that hair dye anyways?,  like those chemicals that I can’t even pronounce?. I’m also really loving my natural hair texture which really is wavy/curly. The last thing I want to do is ruin it by coloring. I’ve also managed how much coconut oil to use when I do my deep scalp treatments and to really just focus on my scalp more so then drenching my hair with the oil. Whatever is left on my hands is what gets distributed onto the strands.

That has really been trial and error. Because when I put too much oil on my hair even though I wash it off it doesn’t get all off and then it ways my hair down as well my waves/curls. Anyways I want healthy hair and part of that I’m assuming is calling it quits to all hair dye and accepting and embracing my natural hair Color for what it is.

One thing I did enjoy seeing which most people would probably disagree with me on this, is watching my roots come in. Because psychologically it would tell me how much my hair has grown. Which would give me warm fuzzy feelings because of me wanting to grow my hair long. Totally weird I know but I never said I was normal lmao. So two things I’m doing accepting my glitter bits and accepting my natural hair color and appreciating the natural beauty of my hair.

I know it won’t be easy this hair growth journey and leaving hair dye to others. Because I always get excited internally when I walk past the boxed dye isle at any store that sells it. But I really need to just accept my Color for what it is which is pretty fucking fabulous.
