My 2004 Ford Focus wagon has honestly been a great car – good on gas, reliable, and cheap to fix, with very minor repairs. However, it’s getting up there in age and kilometers, and her age is starting to show (some shakiness, cruise control no longer works, and a few other quirks). I’ve been looking to upgrade to a new used car and I’m struggling to find a vehicle that checks all my boxes with the budget I’m working with. My fiancé has also been planning a Ford F-150 purchase, so we’ve been taking lots of test drives and visiting various dealerships. I have to say that the car shopping experience is quite something, and it’s fierce!
I’m sure you’ve heard the saying ‘one man’s trash is another man’s treasure’ before. I truly believe in this saying, especially when it comes to the thrift shop. You can find anything and everything under the sun at the used thrift shop like Value Village. Completely niche items, rare finds, discontinued products, replacements for something you broke, designer clothes, all at very reasonable prices. And sometimes, you even come across something extra special that you would never expect to find there…

Where to Buy it: online or in stores – Amazon, Costco and Wal-Mart are a few viable options
To hear that every girl on the planet has questioned if they like their hair the way it is would not surprise me. While I know there are girls out there who change their hair on a weekly/monthly basis to new colours and styles, I can’t imagine doing such drastic changes and so frequently. How would anyone recognize you?! I tend to stick with common styles and natural colours, never daring to try anything too drastic (and also to keep a professional look). I seem to assess ‘my look’ every few months – Do I like the length? Should I cut it? Should I let it grow? Should I dye it? Girls, why can’t we just make up our minds and stick with it?!?
I’m working my way through life in Canada and traveling when I can afford to explore beyond the border. Sharing my tips, trips, opinions and rants on life and travel in the meantime.
