New Beauty Blog Coming Soon!

Posted in Beauty & Fashion at 3:10 am by Megan

Hey guys, just wanted to update you quickly! I am in the works on creating an amazing beauty blog! I have been working really hard on it and that is why there hasn’t been a lot of posts on my personal blog lately. I am really excited to launch this beauty blog because beauty is my life. I love all things to do with it- makeup, nail polish, creams, lotions, etc. etc.

I will keep you posted, and I will leave you with the banner that took me forever to make (I am no pro at this stuff!) I hope you like it! Let me know what you think of the name of the blog and the taglines 🙂

*It’s not letting me make it any bigger for some reason- but it reads: COUTURE BEAUTY- For the Princess in all of us! A Canadian Beauty Blog sprinkled with couture 🙂

My Favorite Uggs! TRUE TO SIZE FITTING!

By meguwo from London, Ontario, Canada on 4/6/2010

 

5out of 5

Pros: Comfy light slimming

Best Uses: Shopping class

I LOVE these Uggs. I own 9 pairs of Uggs (mainly cardies and classics and the lo pro denim.) They are very comfy and slim your foot (compared to the classics.)

WARNING: These fit TRUE TO SIZE. I am naturally a size 9, but I order a size 8 in the classics and the cardies. BUT- I AM A SIZE 9 in the LO PRO! Make sure you do NOT ORDER DOWN A SIZE!

Also, these are more slim fitting then the classics, so if you have a wider foot you may have issues.

I am in love with these Uggs, you can leave them up, or roll them down for a completely different look. It’s nice to have something different that no one else seems to have.

They are very light and breathable- you can wear them in warmer weather- there isn’t heaving sheepskin lining in them (like the classics!)

I can’t wait to order my next pair! (The denim ones are SO cool- I suggest getting them if you can’t decide!)

Hope this helps 🙂

Watch Lady Gaga & Beyonce’s Brand SPANKIN’ New Video for â€˜Telephone’

Posted in Personal tagged , , , , , , at 12:04 am by Megan

It’s finally here!!!! It’s SO AWESOME! It is almost 10 minutes long!  I just watched it and I am going to again! One of the best music videos I’ve ever saw!

It follows Gaga’s video for Paparazzi. She is thrown into jail, balied out by Beyonce ‘Honey B’ Knowles and it goes from there (I don’t want to spoil it!) Just like her ‘Bad Romance’ video there is lots of hidden advertising in the video (Off the top of my head I saw Heartbeats, Diet Coke, Virgin Mobile and references to Quentin Tarantino and the ‘Pussy Wagon’)

Make sure you watch it because it ROCKS!

Lady Gaga & Beyonce “Telephone” Video Delayed

Posted in Music tagged , , , at 6:56 pm by Megan

So, I was anticipating and counting down the days to March 8…. but I am sad to hear that there has been some sort of delay in Gaga and Beyonce’s new video for Telephone.   No word on how long we will have to wait to see it. There has been a lot of anticipation for this video! For updates check out http://gagadaily.com/2010/03/telephone-music-video-update/

For now, I will leave you with this hilarious parody I found on Youtube!

Save Money With Smart Canucks!

Posted in Shopping, Websites tagged , , , , , , , , , at 10:16 pm by Megan

I came across what might be the best website in the history of the Internet. I’m not joking. Founded by ‘Boo Radley’ in 2006, Smart Canucks was one of the first all Canadian deals and shopping sites.

I was ‘googling’ (now I’ll stick to Swagbucks though- thanks to SC) something to find an online savings code to order pizza or something when I saw Smart Canucks. It lead to to a blog that was filled with deals (all Canadian friendly!!) These deals were for food, baby products, shopping, events, and more! This was my kind of site! I then noticed that there was a forum. A forum is a place for people who share common interests to get together (online) and share tips/tricks/brags etc. about a certain topic. There are forums for computers, cars, shoes, and more.  The forum was all about freebies, shopping deals, contests, coupons (and so much more!) This was my kind of place! Sign me up! I instantly signed myself up for an account (my name on the forum is meguwo.)  This was in May of 2009.

For the next few months I spent a lot of my time just checking out the blog (where they showcase the big deals and savings!) I didn’t really dive into the forum until the end of Summer, 2009. I was sure missing out though! The forum is incredible. Not only is it filled with savings ideas, it is full of the most amazing people.  I was a member a forum before and I found a lot of people to be pretty conceited, and not really care about other members. They would poke fun of you if you made a spelling mistake (not cool… it happens!) Smart Canucks is the opposite. Everyone was SO helpful and SO nice and SO caring. Not a day went by that I would get a rep from someone telling me to have a great day, or something like that. (A rep is a way of acknowledging a post as being helpful, or something along those lines.)  I was shocked how amazing each member was.

Smart Canucks is all about its members. It’s success counts on each member posting deals that they have seen or might know about. Someone might say- oh this item is on sale this week at Wal-Mart for $2 regular $6- make sure to use the $2 off coupon that you can find (wherever it might be found) and you can get it free! It’s amazing the kinds of deals you can find when there are 75,000+ people out looking.  Do you need free shipping codes? What about some free samples in the mail? Do you want to read reviews on stores before you shop there? Do you want to join a coupon train (exchanging coupons you don’t want for ones you might want that other people don’t- I hope that made sense!!) It is SUCH a great site- not even a site- a COMMUNITY! Any question you need answered, any help you might need- anything at all- there is always someone there to help!!! You can also contribute to the site! It is so much fun! It’s like a second family!

Just a little big about Swagbucks (thanks to SC I found this site!) It’s like google- but you win Swagbucks for doing internet searches! Once you have so many Swagbucks you can cash them in for FREE STUFF! It’s amazing! Why not get paid to do your searches? Some SC member get up to $500 a year back in Swagbucks! WOW!

You really need to check out Smart Canucks. It will change your life.

Did you have a good weekend? I did!

Posted in Personal tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 6:08 am by Megan

Did everyone have a good weekend? I love Saturday nights, but I hate getting up in the morning on Sunday.  I think Sundays depress me more than Mondays…… although I love a rainy Sunday 🙂 It was a beautiful weekend here in London, Ontario (where I live!) I didn’t really take advantage of the sunny days as I only went out during the nights. I had a great weekend though! Friday I went to Call the Office (a local bar/concert place) to see Shad (who happened to go to my high school… CENTRAL… represent!) The concert was amazing!! It was very small and intimate and there were 2 great opening acts- Two Crown King (another local band) and Grand Analog  (from Winnipeg).  The show was great! I took some pictures, but as you can see below they aren’t the greatest…. oh well. I also decided to bring my new camera with me (It’s the dual screen Samsung ST550!) It’s suppose to take high definition/resolution (whatever?) videos, so I thought I would test it out. If I can figure out how to add a video I will do so (let me know what you think!)  Saturday (during the day) was pretty much a write off as I slept most of it away (the concert went late the night before.) But Saturday night was fun! We (my bf Justin, and friends Ben and Amy) went out to dinner downtown (Crabby Joe’s… nothing spectacular) but it was a lot of fun! They are a great couple to hang out with.  I had some nice Masi Italian wine, cant remember what it was called though….. Afterwards we met at Yuk Yuk’s as my boyfriend had won 25 tickets (for FREE!) We met a bunch of old friends (and new friends) there and we had a good laugh (Justin was in tears!) The one guy was just too funny. I can’t remember his name, but I’ll ask Justin when he gets home. (He got called out to an emergency for work in Paris Ontario). Which brings me to my Sunday….. my lonely Sunday because my boyfriend had to work last minute…. oh well, it`s kind of peaceful being at home by yourself!   I seem to be rambling on a bit (I do that a lot). Anyway, I just wanted to update my blog with a bit of my weekend, and see what my reader’s have been up to. (Hopefully I have a couple readers by now!) Please leave a comment if you wish to share anything fun you did this weekend!   I will leave you with some concert photos, and possibly some videos (if I can figure it out!)

Lady Gaga & Beyonce New Video Soon!

Posted in Music tagged , , , , , at 11:21 pm by Megan

I am sitting at home watching Tyra on my PVR (I think the episode might be from yesterday!) Anyway, Beyoncè is on and she was talking about filming her new music video with Lady Gaga for Telephone (which I think is way better then Video Phone btw!)  I decided to do some searching and I found out that the video should be out any day now (I am hoping sooner rather than later!)

I came across some super cool stills of the video shoot (thanks to gossiponthis.com)

They are reporting that Gaga is saying this is one of the best videos she has ever done and that she “feels bad” for Bad Romance! I am super excited as I am a HUGE Gaga and Beyoncè Fan!

Enjoy the stills while we wait for the video! (Click the photo to see full size!)

My First Post/Blog?

Posted in Personal tagged , , , , , , , at 7:35 pm by Megan

This is Me!

Hello everyone! I decided to do something with my life and I guess that means starting a blog? Not too sure about all of this, but I am giving it a shot. My twitter friends suggested Word Press as the best blogging site, so I will see how it works (slowly but surely!) This is all new to me, so I appreciate your patience as I learn the in’s and out’s of blogging!

Just thought I would start off by introducing myself! My name is Megan (duh?) I am 24 years old (wow I can’t believe I am that old already!) I live in London (Canada- not UK!) I go to the University of Western Ontario (the Harvard of Canada….maybe?) I am studying Sociology and Psychology (but don’t worry I am not going to blog about the Freud man or correlations in world population trends.) I am more here to blog about myself (which could be good, or really boring) and cool things that I find? I don’t know really, we will have to wait and see where this goes!

I just bought my first house in July with my boyfriend Justin (we have been together for about 4 years ish). I am addicted to reality tv (so I will probably blog a lot about that). I love music, ugg boots, beauty products, fashion, shopping, and life!

That’s a quick little bio about me, I won’t go into too much, or I will have nothing else to blog about.

Not sure if you friend me? Fan me? Follow me? Subscribe to me? Either way, if you want to go on this journey with me, please jump on board! Leave me a message or comment or sign my guestbook (do those still exist?????) letting me in on the dirty of Word Press. Any helpful advice you might have? How to get a cool theme (because all the ones I searched were pretty cheesy with extra cheese).

I want to give a big thanks to google chrome for underlining all of my spelling mistakes! Thank goodness I am not using Internet Explorer or you probably wouldn’t have understood half of what I just typed!

Welcome to my world, my name is Megan! Let’s get it started in here!

I will leave you with this poll (be nice!)
