Putting five relatively interesting things to discuss for today's post seemed to be a bit of a challenge because between work, home and the pandemic, I have realized that I am incredibly uneventful and I don't hate it, but I feel like you will all read this and think I'm so full of it! I feel boring AF! I had a short four day work week which was nice as we are all trying to burn through remaining vacation days before the fiscal year end in March. At my work, we are only allowed to carry over five vacation days and amazingly enough, it can be challenging to actually take vacation over the year as you need to coordinate with other employees to make sure you aren't short-staffed and you also need to be around for certain sales events or risk not making commission!
After hosting a lovely CBD giveaway with local company Birch + Fog, I decided it was time to place an order of my own! I am still fairly new to this world of CBD so I am definitely experimenting with tinctures and edibles. The only thing I won't do is smoke ANYTHING. I don't want anything in my lungs as I don't need the effects to be fast-acting. I can wait a few hours. I also like sweets so if I can have a bit of sugar, then why not? I picked up some gummies, hot chocolate, a citrus-flavoured tincture and a chocolate bar. Shipping was super fast and I received my package in a bit of an adventurous way as Purolator marked my package as delivered to my address and noted that I had "verbally signed for it. I never received the package, wasn't home at the time of delivery and had no idea where it was until an elderly lady from an apartment building a block away said she found my package in the lobby. She found my phone number and let me know that she was keeping it safe because "people take things"! She was very sweet and her gesture was much appreciated.
I know that me buying sheet masks seems ridiculous, but I've settled into a routine where if I just want my skin to feel nice, smooth and comforted I reach for a MaskerAide mask! I love them so much that I actually have force myself to use different masks to feature on my current #SheetMask365 challenge or else all you would see are me using these masks! My favourite ones to use for dry winter months are the Beauty Rest'ore and I Don't Wanna Grow Up which is what I ordered (10 masks total), but the MaskerAide team added on a ton of extras as a little perk of being a MaskerAide ambassador for four years now! Being an ambassador for the brand was a no brainer as I was using their masks for years beforehand and though I could ask for free product, I also want to support a Canadian company so when they had their Boxing Day sale, I took the opportunity to stock up!
I finished this LEGO N64 Cube a few weeks ago, but I was working on it at work because all of my colleagues wanted to see what it looked like. I only just took it home this week and for someone like myself who was obsessed with the N64 in the late 90s, this piece needed to be part of my collection! Released in October 2021, it wasn't cheap at $200 CDN, but I loved the building process and seeing how the LEGO designers used rubber bands to make this work and also included so many little Easter eggs as a nod to the original Super Mario game. I mean, who else found it SO HARD to return the baby penguin to his Mama?!
I can't believe I have now done two of these Five on Friday things! What I find challenging is taking "nice" photos of things, but maybe I should upgrade my iPhone since I still have my iPhone 7 from 2017! Maybe later this year!
