[Review] — Fitbit Alta HR review

I have been using my Fitbit for a few months now and it’s time to give a thorough review with this new device.

Before purchasing this device – I did ask a lot of people of what they think of this device and if it’s worth the money. The results were half half – so it made it even harder to know if I should get it or not.

I gave it a month to think – if I should get it. Would I use it every day? What would I benefit from it? There’s a wide range of different types of Fitbit but the one I wanted was the latest one which looks more chic. It is $229.99+ tax which makes it around $260. The issue isn’t about money. The issue is would I only use it for a few weeks and not even bother using it anymore? I had to make sure that I will be using it for a long period of time first.

After much debate with myself – I pull the plug and ordered it online at Bestbuy.ca. Since the color I wanted was limited edition – I waited almost 3 weeks for it to arrive. If you get other colors – they are cheaper plus the shipping is way faster. But being the picky-self I am. If I am going to wear it every day – I wanted the color I like.

After the first few hours of wearing my Fitbit – I fell in love with it. It shows everything. Heart beat, sleeping stats, steps I took, goals, weight, alarm, and etc. One thing I love love, and love about this device is – you can have challenges with your friends. It makes exercising so much more fun.

I think without your friends having Fitbit – it would be a bit boring and less motivating. Basically your friends can keep you accountable because when you do challenges with them – they see your activities and when you are moving as well. So every week or weekend – I have a few challenges with a few different groups of people. It’s so much fun with the challenges because you get to see how many steps they took and you try to beat them. I feel like if you have no friends with Fitbit- its less motivating.

Is it irritating to wear the Fitbit every day? Not at all. I get used to it – that sometimes I forget that I’m wearing it. It’s very light and chic. After using my Fitbit for a few days – without any convincing – 2 of my girlfriends got one for themselves too. They love it and we have challenges daily. After talking about my stats and having friends that have it – my hubby wanted one too. Lol with no convincing needed. It interested him because of the challenges we were having plus he was interested in seeing how his sleeping routine was like.

It does need a quick charging every 4-5 days. Its shower water resistance but I don’t wear it when I’m taking a bath.

I have no regrets with this new toy at all! Worth every penny and I am happy that it gets me moving all the time! There is not one bad thing I can say about it! Do you have one yourself? Do you love it or hate it? Comment below to share! Stay tune for more hauls & reviews!

Have a GORGEOUS day!!!

[Mommy Monday] — Thankful for Good Sleepers!

I can’t be blessed enough with both kids sleeping so awesomely! Before having kids – my worry was always about my sleep. Would I get my beauty sleep again? I love my sleep!

Thank goodness both my kids sleep so well during the night – I can get up to 9 hours straight of sleep every night. Well once in a blue moon – I’ll hear crazy crying. Or when the kids are sick – I’ll need to check up on them. But that’s really it.

We’ve sleep trained them both at a very young age. Munchkin#1 at 10 month old and Munchkin#2 at 7 month old. I would say its quite young but its good to start early. The earlier you sleep train your kids the easier it is. Both my kids ‘cry it out’ for 3-4 days and that was it! No more trouble after that.

For both kids – during and after sleep training – I no longer gave them night time feeds. They just sleep through the night. If you want good night sleeps – start early with sleep training! It’s the best decision I ever made!

Have a WONDERFUL day!!!

[Haul] — La Vie en Rose Swimwear

Don’t they just have the most amazing packaging? It’s my first time ordering La Vie en Rose swimwear online and I love the cute packaging! Usually when I order things online – they only throw it in a bag and that’s it.

This haul is a little overdue – I purchased these swimwear tankini tops about two months ago before my trip to Punta Cana.

I always love their swimwear because it’s so comfortable and the quality is just very lasting! Love all the tops I ordered – I already had the bottoms in the same colors – so didn’t bother purchasing it. My most fave is the floral blue one.

I have a huge collection of bikinis already but every trip – I seem to order a few new pieces. La Vie en Rose is on the pricier side – but you do get the quality of it. The shipping was free and fast. No regrets purchasing! Stay tune for more reviews & hauls.

Have a BEAUTIFUL day!!!

[Mommy Monday] — Parenting

Image: Google

I am not an expert at parenting & I cannot agree more with this article my girlfriend sent me. It’s so on point & I agree with it 100%.

There are also a few things I’ve marked down for myself & my family to work on.

Parenting sure is the hardest job in this world! It can be the most rewarding or frustrating job.

I’m not a perfect parent but I try my best. At times I sit down with my husband to reflect on our parenting. What we are doing a good job on and what we need to work on. It’s like a goal to work on every week or even every month.

Having children is a lifetime commitment till the day we die. I would NEVER in my life raise spoil brats. It’ll just make myself miserable and why would I want that? Why would I want my kids to take control over me?

As strict of a routine my kids have – there is also times to have fun too. Vacations and weekends are for fun. Other times are routine. I so believe in a routine lifestyle. Growing up – I never had a routine life. Every day after school was different – I felt like I was all over the place. There’s a place and time to have fun & there’s a place and time for daily routines. As the quote says “work hard – play hard”.

I will never criticize or give comments to other parents on how they raise their children because quite frankly – it’s none of my business.

No parent is ever perfect. It all depends what you want for your children. I don’t need perfect children – I want respectful, humble, and kind hearted children.

What’s your take on this article? Comment below to share!

Have a BLISSFUL day!!!

[Food] — Tim Hortons Breakfast

e344

Tim Horton has been one of my go to for breakfast lately. They have a wide range of choices and sometimes it’s quite hard to decide. They’ve came out with wraps and sandwiches for awhile now. I love their wraps! They have much healthier choices than fast food restaurants have and that’s why I love this place. Lately I’ve been addicted with their Chipotle crispy chicken wrap! What are your fave here? Comment below to share!

Have an YUMMILICIOUS day!!!

[Haul] — Largest Dollarama Haul

Sharing to you all – one of my largest Dollarama haul. I didn’t intend to get much – just the things I needed. This always happens – I can never walk out of Dollarama with things that don’t belong on my shopping list.

I got a two summer sand toys for our trip to the beach. A lot of home and party things for upcoming events. Found these cute treat bags in the wedding section which I’m not sure what to fill them up with. It just looks pretty – so I had to get it.

These baby squeeze bags was recommended in one of the Mommy groups – decided to give it a try. I will probably be putting blended juice in there. They are so cute arent they? Just hope they don’t leak.

That’s really it for this haul. I had to visit two Dollaramas because they didn’t have party favor bags for the first one I visited. Stay tune for the next haul!

Have a FABULOUS day!!!
