As it rains outside I figured I would do my two major reviews today, both things I am absolutely inlove with. I am not being sponsored in anyway for either reviews these are honest and true opinions. Lets kick off with a great book!

  The Maze Runner

Product Description from Amazon

If you ain’t scared, you ain’t human. When Thomas wakes up in the lift, the only thing he can remember is his name. He’s surrounded by strangers—boys whose memories are also gone. Nice to meet ya, shank. Welcome to the Glade. Outside the towering stone walls that surround the Glade is a limitless, ever-changing maze. It’s the only way out—and no one’s ever made it through alive. Everything is going to change. Then a girl arrives. The first girl ever. And the message she delivers is terrifying. Remember. Survive. Run.

Oh man was this book good. I finished it in only a couple days, which says a lot considering I was working a lot during that time. I recently found out that I am more likely to pick up about based around a dystopia type atmosphere.

an imagined place or state in which everything is unpleasant or bad, typically a totalitarian or environmentally degraded one.

For example books like Hunger Games or Divergent. If you enjoyed those books then Maze Runner is right up your alley. Just like the description the book revolves around a boy named Thomas who is thrown into a giant Maze with a bunch of other boys but doesn't know who he is or why he is there and most importantly how to get out. I sadly can't say too much without giving too much of the book away I just suggest that you pick it up and give it a read. I have already dove head first into the second of the trilogy and am eating that one up just as fast as the first. This book is also being made into a movie [surprise surprise] set to be released in Sept 2014. Although I'm sure it won't be as good as the book because they never are I am quite excited for it.

Jamberry Nails!!!

The story of Jamberry Nails begins with three sisters who possess distinct personal tastes, but share a love for style. After an expensive afternoon together at the nail salon, Lyndsey, Christy and Keri vowed to find a simpler, more cost effective way to keep their hands looking polished, while still spending time together. After lots of trial and error, the proprietary nail wraps of Jamberry Nails launched in late 2010. The DIY, at-home application and incredible variety of designs caught on quickly and sales soared. A new era of nail art was born. Gone are the days of nails that chip and flake after only a few days! Gone are the days of the single colored manicure. Gone are the mani/pedis that take all afternoon and most of your cash too! Jamberry nail wraps arm you with style and confidence while demanding very little of your time or money.

That's right ladies, an inexpensive vinyl nail wrap that actually looks AMAZING and stays a long time. No more wasting money on terrible acrylic or gel nails or watching your freshly painted nails chip. How about NO DRY TIME! 
I got these in the mail yesterday after ordering them during a party that my friends mom was holding only a week ago [to Canada the shipping was super fast! and cheap!] I was so excited to try them out. I was a little scared about the application process because I didn't want to wreck them at all but it was super easy. Find the size that fits your nail, cut it down, heat, apply and file away the extra. It was so easy. I am not a girly girl at all and I also hate sitting there trying to [failing to] paint my nails, for them only to chip within a couple hours because I am CONSTANTLY on my computer typing away. I was able to apply these wraps and console my dog half way through because of the fireworks outside and not worry about things getting wrecked. I have completely fallen in love with them!

July 18th was Adam's birthday, we had planned to do a lot that day but a terrible phone call from the labour board put the whole thing to a halt. [for those of you who don't know I am currently fighting a past employer with help from the labour board.] Instead we just spent the day together, having lunch out at an expensive restaurant and dinner with his family.

That morning I had decided to try something that I had learned watching Alli Speed's youtube on turning your old curling iron into a curling wand by removing the clip. [CLICK HERE TO WATCH] Stupid me never thought of doing this before even though it seemed very simple and was quite easy to do. I could NEVER for the life of me figure out how to curl my hair with the iron and clip but as soon as it was removed it was a whole new ball game. The wand was so much easier to use!

The Merchantman Pub

We decided for lunch we were going to try somewhere that we had never been before, didn't really care about the price since it was Adam's birthday. Downtown Charlottetown we found the Merchantman Pub, coffee house atmosphere, expensive fish and chips restaurant.

I actually really liked the way the place was decorated, plus huge orange benches for seating. I love orange, and it's never used enough. I of course ordered fish and chips, while Adam ordered the Merchantman burger.

The food was great, their was A LOT of it and ended up leaving about half of it. For the price that it was I don't think I would be going back any time soon but it's a great place for special occasions.

For his birthday Adam got quite a few things. A couple first person shooters for his xbox one including C.O.D, which he plays with his friend every weekend while they drink. He also got a BBQ from my parents which we are loving, we have had dinner by BBQ every single night since we got it. This is the first time I've never owned one myself so we are taking full advantage of it.
First dinner I cooked on a BBQ, I'm quite proud of myself.

Adam also got a Surface Pro 3. This thing is amazing, little laptop tablet thing with detachable keyboard. Everything is done through magnets so the keyboard just snaps itself on as well as the charging cable. I love it and pretty sure I use it more then he does. I would love to have one for school but for the price of $1300 not going to happen.

I finished another book, The Maze Runner. I will be putting up my thoughts on it in my next blog post, have started the second book in the series already. I am quite enjoying the ease of my Kindle paper white to read my books off of. I love real books but some of them are heavy and bulky. #firstworldproblems. I have so much time now that I don't play MMO's anymore [which I miss a lot], I stopped so that when school started I would be able to focus on that 100% instead of wasting so much time gaming. ALTHOUGH I still play Hearthstone and if you like card based games I HIGHLY suggest you try it out. Especially because they recently released Naxx for it. The reason I like this so much is it's not time consuming. I can play when I have time and I'm not far behind everyone else.

I've also been debating on cutting and dying my hair. I was hoping that if I didn't have to maintain a job while I attend school I was going to have fun with the colour of my hair one last time. I was thinking pale purple or maybe bright red, but that is yet to be determined. I do want to cut my hair though, maybe to my shoulders. This summer is especially hot and with long hair it's quite painful. I find that my hair spends most of the time up in a ponytail or in a tightly wrapped bun because of it's length. I feel that if I cut it to shoulder length or shorter I may get more use out of it. My hair is like my security blanket, it takes a lot for me to agree to cut it.  

One last thing before I go, Today is one of my really good friend's daughters first birthday. Although she has been dreading this day because it means that so much time has gone by and her baby girl is getting older today is a special day. I still can't believe that Misty is a mom to a one year old little own a mom at all. I still remember talking to you on livejournal, meeting up with you at the movies and sleepovers all the time. I am so proud of everything you have done for your little girl and so happy for you. I couldn't see myself taking care of a child and you have done so well! Big milestones still to come but I'd say this is quite a big one as well. Happy FIRST birthday Brynn! You are one lucky, beautiful little girl.

For those mama's out there you can check out Misty's amazing blog and even participate in her giveaways she is doing for Brynn's first birthday HERE
I will do more of a review on Misty's blog in another post.

Well that's it for now, hope you all are having an EXCELLENT day. Until next time.

Psycho Oculus?

Alright first official post, or second if you want to be real technical. I am going to do a review on a book that I finished two days ago as well as a movie that I just watched. Should be absolutely no spoilers as I dislike when people spoil things for me. These are my own honest opinions, I am not being sponsored or paid in anyway. [obviously who would sponsor me to do anything.. no one that's for sure haha]

Anyway! On to the reviews.

Book - Psycho by Babe Walker

As written on the Amazon website the description says this -
"Fresh from a four-month stint in rehab for her “alleged” shopping addiction, Babe Walker returns home to Bel Air ten pounds lighter (thanks to a stomach virus), having made amends (she told a counselor with bad skin she was smart) and confronted her past (after meeting her birth mother for the first time—a fashion model turned farmer lesbian). Although delighted to be home and determined to maintain her hard-won inner peace, Babe now faces a host of outside forces seemingly intent on derailing her path to positive change. Not only is she being trailed by an anonymous stalker, but she’s also reunited with the love of her life, a relationship that she cannot seem to stop self-sabotaging.
Babe’s newfound spirituality, coupled with her faith in the universe and its messages, leads her all over the world: shoulder dancing in Paris, tripping out in Amsterdam, and hooking up in the Mediterranean, only to land her back in New York City, forced to choose between a man who is perfect in every way (except for one small detail) and a man who could be The One if only he didn’t drive Babe to utter insanity."

Now I had high hopes for this book, I saw it on Ashley Benson's instagram for the first time about a week ago and as you can see her quote is seen on the front of the book. When I started to look into it all I heard was how great this book was. Mind you every single quote was from some celebrities. I didn't start seeing anything bad about this book until after I finished it and signed onto my goodreads account to make a review.

So what did I think? Terrible, it was just terrible. I don't suggest it to anyone. Yah I know a bit harsh. But Karleigh you finished the book so it mustn't have been that bad. WRONG. It was terrible, absolutely terrible. Once I start reading something I don't usually put it down until I finish it, that has only happened once recently and that was with Divergent. Which I plan on picking up again. Anyway back to psychos - I felt that the book was judging me the entire time. I'm sure that is a problem on my end but still I didn't enjoy that. What do I mean by that? While through the whole book they talk about how you can basically live off juicing because who needs food? There was fat shunning and just all around high society air headed behaviour. I feel that if you don't live in LA or are obsessed with Hollywood and celebrities you don't understand what is going on half the time. There was a lot of big name drops from celebrities to fashion labels. I felt lost half the time when she was going on rants about some fashion with some celebrity about some coffee drink. There was a twist at the end which was erm.. okay I guess I'll give it the benefit of the doubt. Now on that note I am not saying don't read it, go for it, eat your heart out. I just don't suggest you waste your time.. That's all :)

Movie - Oculus

Don't like scary movies, turn back now!

As the description on IMDB say -
"A woman tries to exonerate her brother, who was convicted of murder, by proving that the crime was committed by a supernatural phenomenon. You see what it wants you to see."

I have a problem when I find a horror movie, I HAVE to watch it, no matter how scared it makes me. This isn't always the best thing considering I have an overactive imagination and tend to be up all night after watching something scary. I seriously can't help it though, I have days where I will just sit there and watch horror movies after horror movies. It's a problem I should probably seek help. 
This movie was amazing. I highly suggest everyone watch it. I was crapping myself the entire time. I am an extra jumpy person so that didn't help at all. I felt that I was covering my eyes the entire time and jumping every five seconds. Sometimes I was trying to understand what was happening [probably because I covered my eyes during an important part], I just suggest you remember the tagline for this movie as it plays a big part. You see what it wants you to see. So not only was this movie just completely excellent, but one of the main actresses is Karen Gillan, and if you don't know who that is you haven't experienced the amazingness that is Doctor Who. Karen played Aimee one of the Doctor's companions.

Hopefully I didn't give too much away about the stories in both the book and the movie. If you have read/seen either of these let me know what you thought! In the meantime I hope everyone is having an excellent day/night!
