Kitten Survives Washing Machine Spin!

This was in one of the Australian papers today! I mean it's a wonderful story that this little baby cat survived, but have you seen how CUTE Kimba is!?!? To lose such a wonderful little creature would have been heartbreaking! Now this will be a lesson learned for Lindsay and anyone with kittens doing laundry. Cats do have nine lives, but let's not take advantage of them ;)  This is exactly what was quoted from

I want to adopt this little fella! Mrs. Rogers is a lucky lady! I melt. 

"A kitten in Australia has survived a 30 minute wash and spin cycle after sneaking into the machine without its owner realising.

Lindsay Rogers told the Manly Daily that 4-month-old Persian Kimba had snuggled into the dirty clothes in the machine while his back was turned.

Rogers said: "I put the clothes in, put the powder and the fabric softener in, put it on a cold wash - which was very lucky - and put it on for a 30-minute cycle.

"When I opened the door, it just went ‘meow’ and stuck its head out. I couldn’t believe it - the spin cycle at the end goes really fast and I couldn’t believe it survived.”

He added that Kimba recovered and was "purring like a little motor" following emergency medical treatment at Allambie Vet, including the use of an intravenous drip.

 After the news broke, Rogers said: "It's stirred up a bit of a hornet's nest. I had Channel 9 asking if they could come over, and I said, 'Sure, but Channel 7 has already been here'."

School City!

After getting home last night and all out of sorts (because our baggage didn't arrive until this afternoon)  I have also missed a few days to do my schoolwork! So, I have to get caught up now ;) Today was a great day, but also a write off! That is what happens when you get back home as there is so much other stuff you need to do like laundry to the max and cleaning in general. Hopefully tomorrow I will post some pictures now that I my suitcase made it home sweet home! :) I should be back to a regular blogging schedule tomorrow, which will also be about baby girl!

Back Home!

I just walked in the door, but I wanted to make sure that everyone knew that I wasn't M.I.A or anything crazy like that! I hope to post some videos and pictures tomorrow! :D For now, I need to hit the hay!

Off to L.A Today!

Pretty excited since I haven't been West of here before! I am looking forward to checking out L.A in all of it's glory! I had a hard time sleeping last night, I get so antsy, not to mention starting to feel uncomfortable from this bump that is growing. :) One last trip before baby girl comes! I better go and enjoy it!

Trent Reznor And His Wife Have A New, Awesome Band!

Mariqueen Maandig and Trent Reznor have come out with a new band called "How to Destroy Angels" with their first single called "The Space in Between" I am in love with Mariqueen's voice not to mention is she super gorgeous as she got my attention a couple years ago from her other band "West Indian Girl"(until she left in 2009), and I have loved Trent Reznor and Nine Inch Nails since the beginning of my music career. 

Here is their new video, that actually may be way too real for it's own good. It will cause me nightmares, it's that amazing. It's such a beautiful song, and I can't wait for more to come from these two love doves. 

This would be a project that would be right up my alley. Anyone need me to sing? Yeah, you do. 

Enjoy their wicked song, below!

Puppies Adopt A Mother Cat!

This is so amazing and cute all wrapped into one short little video! It's so wonderful how nature works in very astonishing ways. How a kitty could nurture little puppies who lost their mother, and how this mother kittie lost her own little baby. J'adore!

When Tobias watched the video, he turned around to ask Beatrix if she could ever mother little puppies.

This was her reaction...

Watch this epic two seconds of the worst wedding DJ ever! Holy crap! Never hire this drunk guy from "Stardust Entertainment!" I will never think of "Phil Collin's - In the Air Tonight" beginning drum roll ever the same again!

Wow... enjoy? :)

The Tiffany & Co. Fairy Came!

Well, sort of. I got a really nice necklace for Mother's Day, but it didn't jive well with my style. After a sleepless night, I decided I had to tell the hubby my true feelings on how I felt, as honesty is the best policy. The piece was beautiful, but wasn't something I would wear often, or at all.

So, I fussed up the courage and decided to tell him and he was fine with me choosing something else around the same amount. Of course, I trekked over to Tiffany & Co. and thought I would send a little recommendation email. Apparently it was a good recommendation, because the Tiffany Fairy (Fedex man) showed up to my door with a belated Mother's Day gift!

I was sooooo happy! For reference I got the "Bow Pendant" in mini, which I thought was a perfect size for me, and it wasn't ridiculous expensive like most Tiffany & Co. things either. The quality of the silver is also quite strong. I took a picture so you can see the size of it on my neck as well (Me in all my pregnant glory! ;)

They have such beautiful pieces. It was a nice surprise to actually receive something like this after all :)

Merino Kids: Cocooi Wrap!

I have been very interested in swaddling my soon-to-be-little-one, but from what I hear it is very important to be concious about which materials you use, as some can get quite uncomfortable and overheat throughout sleep.

Babies like to sleep in tight surroundings as the swaddling acts as if they are still in the womb. This makes them feel less insecure and helps them sleep longer. I've been doing mucho reviews and found these amazing swaddling wraps from New Zealand by Merino Kids called the Cocooi! This is the exact quote from the site.

"The international award winning Cocooi ("Ko-Koo-e") range from Merino Kids has been designed especially for the safety and comfort of the newborn - 3 month age group.  All Cocooi garments are made from the finest 100% natural merino and include a babywrap (or swaddle) and a sleep bag. Medical studies have found that babies and infants sleeping in or on merino settle more quickly, sleep longer, feed better, cry less and gain weight faster."

I am pretty excited to see them come in the mail as I ended up buying one in natural and one in the pink blossom colour. Whatever I can do to help her feel better coming into this world (and for me too of course!).

The whole swaddling idea intimidates me as I would question my quality of the wrap or if I was doing it correctly. Merino Kids designed the Cocooi to be able to wrap it easily and even while strapped into a baby seat. Once the little girl comes, I can show proper pictures of her in it :)

This seems to be such a lovely product with the soft Merino material to be cooling in the summer and warming in the winter. If you are wanting to swaddle in style and just for straight up good health benefits, check out

Here is the how-to video for the Cocooi below:

Interpol - Lights = Beautiful Song!

A couple nights ago, I was driving and listening to FM96 and this song came on! I wasn't actually driving, because I was taking notes (safety first!) of the lyrics as I heard them singing to me, and thankfully at the very end of the song they say it was Interpol. I was like "heck yes! New Interpol!" The song "Lights" was released on April 28th, so it is quite new. I suggest you check this beautiful song out. The lyrics are amazing, and I feel such good vibes! I'm in love, and I guarantee you will be too!

GlutenFreeda's Instant Gluten-Free Oatmeal!

Wow! I am impressed with this Apple & Cinnamon with Flax Seed Oatmeal! Unfortunately, it is hard to find a dedicated production facility when it comes to oats, as they are usually processed in the same place as wheat.

I wrote about the oatmeal cookies some time ago when I was in Norway. After doing a little searching, I found that Glutenfreeda is actually a site dedicated to Celiacs and contains over 3000 recipes online! Where have you been, awesome recipe page!?!

Oh well, you have entered my life, and hopefully others will be enlightened from this as well. I will say that my longing for oatmeal has been satisfied with Miss Glutenfreeda! I couldn't recommend it enough! My tummy is happy :)

If you are around the London, Ontario area, I found this at the Jubilee Kafe which is run by a family who has a couple of children with the Celiac disease.

They even put me on the list for gluten-free perogies! Can you believe that!? Check out that place. It's like walking into heaven for us unfortunate gluten-allergic folk.
