Unboxing: Meowbox [September 2017]

Happy Friday, my lovelies!

A surprise Meowbox unboxing today! Earlier this week, I received this September box which I didn’t order since mine is due for next month. After contacting customer service to make sure I didn’t have someone else’s box, they explained the situation. Long story short, this turned into a little gift for us. A lovely gesture even if it was an error that caused it. However, I appreciate a ton. Next box will still come as planned but we have this one in the meantime. More unboxing vids! That makes me happy!

Hope you enjoyed it!

Unboxing: Meowbox (July 2017)

The next unboxing is here!

Sorry for the tiny delay in getting this one done. It was intended to go up faster but you know, time and schedule is always an issue. Point is: its here! This month’s Meowbox is very much summery and my cat is loving it so far.

Let’s check it out!

That’s it for the Meowbox!
Thanks so much for watching!

Unboxing: Meowbox [April 2017]

Welcome everyone!

Finally, the next unboxing is here! Its going to be really slow in the unboxing department this year. I only have two quarterly subscriptions left with Meowbox and FabFitFun! Today is the arrival of the April 2017 Meowbox and there’s quite a few goodies and one particularly rather interesting item. Followed by some play time with my cat at the end of the footage. Hope you enjoy! 🙂

Thanks for watching! 🙂

Unboxing: Meowbox [January 2017]

We are here! 2017 and the first unboxing! I knew that Meowbox was on the way for January but the tracking didn’t arrive until the morning it was already out for delivery. Unless of course, its just lost in my many many unread emails. Point is, it got here.

I haven’t been in a show my face mood so very quick intros and wrap ups from me and a lot more of the unboxing and kitty play/fascination time.

Hope you enjoyed! Thanks for watching!

Unboxing: Meowbox (October 2016)

Unboxings are sparse around here. I know. In fact, Meowbox being quarterly subscriptions works quite well. Plus, I’m curious what Halloween twists the team at Meowbox has in store for my darling cat. Also, a huge thanks to my lovely awesome friend who gifted this box to my little kitty for early Christmas and belated birthday gifts combined! Its a great gesture from her.

Lets open it!

Thanks for watching! 🙂

Unboxing: Meowbox [July 2016]

Welcome to the unboxing of Meowbox! I did one roughly three months ago HERE.  Back then, I had debated whether to get another one but the people at Meowbox were fantastic and helped me out a lot to get a plan that worked for me and they offered the quarterly plan and that is perfect. I love my cat and her being entertained is fantastic but I also don’t want my floors to be littered with her toys because she just has too many choices. Between you and me, the last box still has a few toys I haven’t used yet. However, its always fun to do these unboxing.

This was supposed to be an unboxing video but there was a technical issue that I’m working to do some research to now use as a test to learn a new editing skill. Hopefully next time, the setup will work better.

Let’s check out the Meowbox Unboxing! And of course, if you don’t care about the unboxing, there are some fun pics of my cat playing with her new toys! 🙂

For those of you who didn’t see the last unboxing, Meowbox actually also customizes the box to your own little feline friends.

Now for the goodies!

World Friendship Day Card

Meowbox

Meowbox Cat Toy

Meowbox

Simple as it is, Meowbox’s little cat toy is made really well. The first toy my cat took from the Meowbox was this one and its found all over the house here and there. She’ll play with it whenever she feels like it.

Jellyfish Cat Toy by Angel Kitty  Toys [Exclusive]

Meowbox

I thought it was an Octopus until I was putting this together now and realized that it doesn’t have eight tentacles but rather its obviously a jellyfish. Minor details, right? My cat found a fondness for this as you will see at the bottom. These toys so far are all filled with catnip (I guess) because she just falls in love with it.

Nine Lives Can Cover

Meowbox

Nine Lives Can Cover is for a promotion for an upcoming movie called Nine Lives with Kevin Spacey, Jennifer Garner and Christopher Walken. On the flip side of the card, there is actually a link to go see if there’s an advanced screening available in the area, which I do in Montreal. Luckily it doesn’t collide with any Fantasia Festival movies so I’m going to go check it out! 🙂  As for the can cover, my cat doesn’t eat wet cat food so I’m going to be giving that my in-laws for their kitty’s special treats.

Felt Snake by le Sharma Eco-friendly Pet Toys

Meowbox

As you can already see, curiosity already got my cat here. The felted snake hasn’t been sent out to its death yet but I have a feeling when it does, its not going to be pretty.

Baldi Mouse by Bavarian Cat Toys

Meowbox

The cat toy that caught my attention was this one. Baldi Mouse is filled with German Valerian Root and Spelt. Its interesting to me because for humans normally Valerian Root helps sleep but in this case, for cats, it has a Valerian Effect that “encourages cats to play”. I think that’s a pretty cool thing and also makes me want to look into Valerian root and just what different types they are and all that fun stuff.

Jambalaya Snapz by FeelGood Treats [Exclusive]

Meowbox

Last in the box is some cat treats by FeelGood Treats called Jambalaya Snapz. Its an all natural gourmet baked treats for cats.

Kitty Play Time!

Overall, this month’s Meowbox was cool. It has some fun items. It is still a lot of toys but at least its all stuff that my cat does like. She’s having lots of fun with it right now.

That is it for the unboxing! Hope you enjoyed!

My Weekly Adventures: Work Work and more Work (and a bit of fun)

Welcome to My Weekly Adventures! You can’t physically see me but I’m breathing a sigh of relief.  This later than usual post goes up after I came home from work for some the final day of overtime of this week long craziness.  Along with that, this morning right after I took the car out, I realized that my car’s tire was punctured and totally deflated so after a ton of messing with it and Murphy’s Law 100% in effect, I think everything is generally okay, except you know, having to get a new tire since my husband couldn’t patch it.  I was going to give you all a meh post with just some random stuff to fill up space but decided that I needed some writing time to inject some positivity and get ready for the next week.

Enough of rambling, lets go!

Meow Box Unboxing and Subscription Update!

Meowbox

In case you missed it, in the last two weeks, I did a little Meowbox unboxing.  It was a one month subscription for April for Flea’s 5th birthday.  She loved it as you can see and the toys are occupying her time and energy quite a bit. You can see that post HERE.  While the unboxing isn’t very entertaining, I was super excited to have playtime on camera with Flea and despite the camera having to move around, she was quite cooperative. I had decided to cancel my subscription but the lovely folks at Meowbox managed to help me out a little but long story short, expect another Meowbox unboxing in the next few months. 😉

Garden Planning

Crimson Star

Raspberry

The weather here in Montreal is being difficult with nights still hitting rather below average weather so the plants are growing slowly but there are signs of life in the garden.  The one place I would have enjoyed slow growth was my “vegetable garden” in the making.  May’s big project is to get rid of all the grass and turn it into a vegetable garden I want.  Its going to be a labor intensive job but one I’m really looking forward to.  I’ve already planned out how the container gardening to decorate the patio will be already so its just that last bit.  Meanwhile, I have gotten in some time to trim and prune and clean up the garden. Things are looking good. 🙂

Saturday Two-Part Outings with Friends

Its been a while I’ve hung out with my girl friends so when we decided to go check out the L’Oreale sale, I was all for it.  Sure, it meant waking up early on a Saturday and probably getting lost (since that’s just expected when I drive to a new place), it was still tons of fun.  There was a lot of people there but the stock wasn’t particularly great.  I bought some sun protection lotion and Garnier shampoo and bought a Biotherm Men Urban Survival kit for my husband. Then, we headed for a spontaneous brunch to Le Cartet,.  I recently did a restaurant post on that one HERE.  Then we headed to get some ice cream/sorbet at Le Bilboquet.

Le Bilboquet Quartier Dix30

4 mini degustations at Le Bilboquet

They had this special called 4 mini degustation which is 4 mini tasting portions for $5 (tax included). I chose raspberry, mango-coconut, strawberry-pear and passion fruit. The mix was so delicious! We sat around in the square with these lovely little decorations below.

The weather was perfect and the sun was so warm as we sat and chatted.  It was great.  After I went home to relax and do a few chores, it was time to head out with the husband to hang out with his friends for a little tradition started last year of Poutineville and Chocolat Favoris.  I skipped getting something at Chocolat Favoris since I had my sorbet fix already. However, here is my poutine and the husband’s.

Poutineville

Poutineville

Mine had hot dog, lactose-free cheese and shoestring fries with poutine sauce. My husband’s was with sweet potato fries, curd cheese, and some meats that I can’t remember.

Before we headed to Chocolat Favoris, the whole group went for a walk since we all had eaten so much to just help digest.

It was a super nice walk that started off a little chilly but it was really fun. It was great time during the day with good company and delicious food.  A perfect day to relax and have fun and just take a break from work.

Product That I Love: Frends Earphones

I’m not sure who watched the unboxing of the FabFitFun Winter box a while back but I got these Frends Earphones which I haven’t used because my earphones were (and are) still doing great.  I brought to work today to listen to music while working and OMG! I love them! The sound quality is fantastic. I think possibly one of the best ones I’ve ever tried on.  That is really all I wanted to mention. It seems that they only have the headphones now. But man, this is the FabFitFun page on that right HERE! Mine are white but I’m in love!

Updates and Collabs, ETC

Its been month that I’ve talked about changing the domain.  I’m still working on it.  Don’t worry about it.  I don’t talk about it because this month has been a massive crazy mess.  May still looks really busy with a lot of events and dinner dates and all that stuff.  Plus, I’ve been busy with some projects and of course, gaming posts over at That Moment In.

In case you didn’t know, I’ve been doing Game Breaks and Game Reviews over at That Moment In.  We’re also working on something else for the gaming section and if all goes well, I’ll be posting about it soon! 🙂 On that note, if you have any interesting games that you think I’ll like playing, please suggest! I’ve been checking out a lot of mobile games and there has been some surprising finds.  I also work on gameplay so I’ve been editing videos a lot more.  Its both time consuming and a lot of fun! The last review post that went up was a collab post with Jordan of Epileptic Moondancer for an indie game called Layers of Fear.  You can check that out HERE!
