Film Review - Gone GIrl

This one is going to be short and sweet....its late and I am tired!   Tonight I went to see the advanced screening for Gone Girl - read more about it here


Have you read this book??  I really think that you should, the book was amazing and this was one of the best book adaptations I have seen in a long time!   If you don't want spoilers this is the time to turn and run....run right to the theater and see this!

This movie stars Ben Affleck as Nick Dunne, a man who has been accused of the murder of his missing wife.  Rosamund Pike plays Amy Dunne, the missing and assumed murdered wife.  Ben was the perfect casting for Nick, this ability to be lovable and a total smug dick at the same time!   Rosamund does a very convincing straight up psycho!  Really the casting in this movie was spot on, as far as I am concerned anyway!

I don't want to give away the twist on which the book and movie rely, but if you haven't read the book hold on to your seats and get ready for a ride!!

This movie clocks in at 149 minutes, but let me tell you, it goes by so fast you don't even realize it.   This movie had more than a few laugh out loud moments and I think Gillian Flynn did a fantastic job taking it from book to screenplay.   She made a few changes to the end of the movie from the book, but nothing that takes away from the story.

I totally would have paid to see this movie and been very happy!   Let me know what you think!

Review - Usana Reset

Its been a while since i wrote here, but I thought this would be the best place to host my review.

What is the Usana Reset?  according to their website:

Reset is a 5 day Jumpstart that is a nutritionally balanced, low-calorie system to help you kick carbohydrate cravings and lose the first few pounds and find the motivation to keep working toward your total weigh-loss goal.   Reset helps people jumpstart healthy eating habits and begin to make a clean break from unhealthy, high-glycemic foods.

Reset is meant to be followed up by a 2 month program that tapers off of their food product and into a Low GI diet.   
This review is specifically about the 5 day reset.  Here is how the week shapes up:
You can buy the products online but they recommend you buy the actual reset package that includes a DVD and other extra's.

I have a close contact who sells Usana and they just bought me the items I needed to complete the days.

Lets take a look at the different things my week was made up of:







If…

Permanent or Removable.....that is the question!

So, I have had a few days to reflect on this being 39 thing, and I think I am pretty excited! I am about to enter a totally new phase of my life and this is scary and crazy and wonderful.

I think it is apropos that my last year of my 30’s will be met with much great fanfare and celebration all year long. It is after all the 10th anniversary of the Good Noise Vancouver Gospel Choir and as such we have some AMAZING concerts and events happening this year!

I have decided that this year will be much like the one that ushered in my 30’s with lots of self reflection, being kind to myself and treating myself they way I should be treated! Thankfully this time I will be doing it with someone I love very deeply by my side!

One of the things I have been thinking about it the desire to let go but not forget the lessons I have learned! Life has not always been kind to me; I have had some pretty shitty stuff happen in my life so far. Please don’t take this as any form of Woe is me…just a fact. Life…

FabFitFun Fall 2017 - Spoilers

Its been awhile dear readers but I am back in the land of the english speakers (i have been for almost a month sorry!!!!)
I was trying to get some time in with the handsome man in my life, get my house in order and get back on track with work after a month away, so of course i got SICK!!  YAY.    I will have lots of pictures and some stories to share with you all who are not on my facebook.  
But first I want to tell you about the one and only subscription box I keep around (even when money is tight).  This is my gift to me as an incentive to keep working hard on being a bigger, badder, sexier, stronger - more healthy version of myself.
I have reviewed a few boxes but for those who don't know, FabFitFun is a lifestyle box filled with full size (and occaional travel size) products that are focused on keeping you fabulous, fit and having fun.  I am so excited about this next box that I have to share with you the spoilers we have been given.
