It wouldn't be summer without going to Fan Expo, held at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre. This is another tradition for the family, being the nerds that we are (see 2012 and 2013). I must say that this year was epic in terms of the number of people there! Wowza! If you're claustrophobic, this event may not be the best idea. Still, there's always a lot of things to see and enjoy, and makes the jostling all worth it. The cosplay alone...just awesome....
Because who doesn't love The Hunger Games?
And because I love Lord Of The Rings, this happened...eeeek! Elijah Wood!
So surreal to have met Frodo! Don't I look too happy here? There was a camera glitch so I had a few extra seconds with him. What did I do? Give him a hug....I may have scared the poor guy. Hehe...I have no shame...he was really sweet though.
I love these two products so much it's probably bordering on obsession.
1) Soap and Glory Righteous Butter
One of my fave bloggers Kim from A Very Sweet Blog and uber-popular YouTuber Zoella have raved about some of the products from Soap And Glory. When I saw the brand in a Shoppers Drug Mart in Vancouver, I thought I'd give it a shot.
Oh...my....goodness! As soon as I smelled and tried the Righteous Butter, I was hooked. Great texture, and the smell.....aaaaaaah...I just wanna bathe in it!
I stocked up when I saw that the Shoppers close to me had a whole bunch.:D
2) Vichy LiftActiv Serum 10
I rarely rave about anti-aging products just because it's so hard to tell whether they really do work or not. This Vichy serum, however, is an exception. I love love love how this feels on the skin, and guys, I actually saw an improvement on my skin! A few of my spots have disappeared, and my skin actually feels plump (I don't know how else to explain it.) I put this on before moisturizer.
I completed the Association's Basics Basics Basics course in the summer, and have now enrolled in the first level of the Master Hand Knitter program (there are 3 levels), and am so excited. Reading the material, it is a bit daunting. A lot of research involved aside from doing swatches, but I love learning about knitting as much as I love knitting:) The plan is to finish Level 1 in a year. Fingers crossed, guys....
(The awesome thing about the program is that there's no time limit!)
It's that time of the year again, guys. If you're new to the blog, the Canadian National Exhibition is a yearly tradition for the family. We went yesterday, and it was the perfect super hot summer day:)
