I know it's been forever!!!

Hi Everyone! Yes I am still alive! Yes I am still doing YouTube. I just haven't been as active on my blog as I should be. I am however starting a new series inspired by a few skincare/beauty books that I have read. So be on the lookout! I wanted to share with you a kind of old video series of mine. It's my experience/haul videos of when I went to Seattle and Portland back in September 2012. I posted some videos on here but I made them private on my YouTube. It was so that people who do read my blog will get exclusive access to those videos. But now I have decided to make them public. I just watched back all the videos and I am so glad that I have filmed it the way I did. It's so different than any other vacation haul video that I did because I explained my experience while I was there while showing you my haul as my vacation progressed. I think I will do this from now on when I do go on vacations. So below you will find the playlist to all my Seattle/Portland vacation videos including my experience and haul video.

Your period will never be the same after using this product

Before I start this post, I would like to disclaim that I will be going into detail about the female menstrual cycle and using words in relation to what happens to a girl on her period. If  you are not comfortable reading about this material, I suggest you skip this blog post.

I went to my family doctor a few months ago to do my yearly Pap test. I suggest all you girls/women do this even if you are not sexually active. It will help you prevent cervical cancer and can help you prevent future problems within your vagina area. I waited a few days to hear from the results of my Pap test. It turned out I go a bacteria infection in my vagina because of my tampon use. I use tampons as directed; however according to my doctor, using a tampon is not ideal for a woman's vagina. When women use a tampon, you are disrupting the natural flow of the blood that is coming out of your body. You are suppose let the blood naturally flow out of your body and not let it be blocked up by a tampon. There is something about the natural flow of the blood that cleanses your vagina so you don't get a bacterial infection. I did not know this at all, therefore as soon as my doctor told me about this. I stopped using a tampon on the regular.

I currently now use tampons when I know I will be moving around a lot that day. In my opinion, I still don't feel comfortable wearing a tampon when I am in any body of water, including the beach and pool. Maybe it's all in my head but to each their own. For so many years now (since my third year of university), I have used tampons religiously. I hated the feeling of a pad. It made me feel like I was wearing a diaper. I did however wear a pad when I went to bed. You should always wear a pad when going to bed. NEVER wear a tampon to bed. Even though they design a tampon to be worn for a maximum of 8 hours, you should never wear a tampon to bed. You don't want to run the risk of getting a Toxic Shock Syndrome.

In November 2012, I went to a Proctor & Gamble sale and I grabbed a package of Always Infinity Pads. I remember seeing the commercials on TV talking about how amazing it is and how it revolutionizes your period. AND OH IT DID FOR ME! This pad is life changing! The material they use to absorb your menstrual blood is so soft. It makes you feel like you are not even wearing a pad. I read the reviews on the Always website in regards to this product and they are all amazing. Even though it is from the company's website and it might be slightly biased, I still believe it since I have used this product before I even read the reviews. They come in many different options as with or without wings and come in different absorbency such as regular, heavy and overnight. I bought the box of the heavy and it's perfect for going to bed with since the back part of the pad is extra long.

Proper Underwear for your Summer Clothing

I was inspired to write this blog post as I have seen SO MANY girls and women wearing the wrong type of underwear with this outfits for this summer. It seems like all the rules go out the door as soon as it gets hot. But no! Not for me at least! Keep in mind these are just my opinions of how I think girls/women should be wearing their underwear with certain outfits.

Note: All pictures are from Forever21 and Victoria's Secret. It's just easier to refer to.

White Fabric/Light Coloured Fabric

You must wear a nude coloured bra for any white piece of clothing. If you wear a white bra, it will accentuate what you are trying to hide in the first place (your bra). For light coloured fabrics, it is best to wear a nude bra or a bra that is of very similar colour to that fabric.

Loose Flowing Sheer Tops

I personally would wear a camisole or tank top underneath these kind of tops. Some girls like to wear just a bra underneath these tops. To each their own though. If you are planning to wear just a bra underneath, I suggest wearing a bralette as they are must prettier to look at than a normal bra. There are different lengths of bralettes. I personally would go for the longer kind.

Muscle Tees/Open Side Tops

I would definitely wear a fun coloured bralette for these. You can wear a bra but I feel like you can have more fun with a bralette underneath peeking through the sides. There is more lace so it's more fun and girly as compared to wear a normal bra with it. Unless it was an all lace bra then go nuts!

Spaghetti Strap Tank Tops


I would wear a bra that would be of the exact colour of the tank top or I would wear a strapless bra. You can also wear a nude bra with this top if you choose. I would try to make sure the bra has very minimal lace as it will show through the tank top if it is form fitting. Bras without lace will be the best option.

Racerback Tank Tops

I would opt for a racerback bra or a strapless bra.

Backless/Low Back Tops/Dresses

These types of tops/dresses needs special attention when it comes to bras. You can attach a bra extender to your current bra to allow you bra to have a low back. You can also choose to wear the stick-on bras to allow you to wear backless pieces of clothing.

Strapless Bras

If you have trouble wearing a strapless bra, try wearing a bustier. It will make you feel more secure especially if your breasts are on the small side.

White Bottoms


Any time you are wearing white bottoms such as shorts, skirts, bottoms and also dresses. Please wear a nude pair of panties. If you wear white, we can see everything! Especially if the material is sheer or slightly see-through in the light. You can wear either a hip hugger or a thong type of panty. It all depends on the cut of the bottoms and how tight the piece of clothing fits on you. The tighter the fabric, the smaller the panty.

That is all I have to say about underwear and how to wear it. If you have any additional questions, please let me know in the comments below. I will be happy to answer.

Also! Please DO NOT show visible bra straps unless it is the same colour as the top AND please DO NOT show any visible panty lines. We all know that it's not sexy or cute at all.

Vacation Planning

So I know I have been MIA for a very long time. I am very much active on my YouTube channel but not so much on my blog. I just need to feel inspired or have a legit idea to blog about. I am currently in the middle of planning my vacation to Los Angeles in October with Shawn. Every fall, me and Shawn plan a trip to go away somewhere. That time is the best time to travel because most people are back in school and travelling expenses are a lot less. What I need from you guys is places that I should check out in the Los Angeles area. Here is what I have so far:

  • Visit Westminster
  • Ellen Degeneres show
  • Allure Wine Tour
  • Disneyland
  • Universal Studios
  • Hollywood sign
  • Rodeo Drive
  • Hollywood and Highland

Please note we do plan to rent a vehicle for the time we are there so we do have the freedom to move around. We plan to stay in the LA area for 5 nights.

Thank you for your help in advance!

Has this ever happened to you?

We all know by now that I am obsessed with online shopping. There are days where all I do is just browse websites to see what is new and in style. Not that I buy too many new clothing because I should be paying off my credit card [which I have done today]. I came across the Victoria's Secret website and I found that they are having their Semi-Annual Sale online. UH I HAD NO IDEA! So I went nuts and added a bunch of items into my cart. I should wait until the sale comes to store on June 11, 2013...

There is just a screen shot of a few of the things I put into my cart. I just recently [meaning this week], I made an order at Forever 21 for about $160. I don't need to be spending more money on clothes!! Once I cut down on the few of the items, that is what you see above. I immediately then closed the window because I KNEW I SHOULD NOT BE SPENDING MORE MONEY ON THINGS I DON'T NEED!! 

Now what I want to know is, how many of you have done this? Put a bunch of items into your cart but don't end up buying any of it? It also happened to me earlier today on Beyond The Rack. I can't help it! I got an online shopping addiction!
