Your anxiety is lying to you

I will begin this post by admitting that I cannot take credit for its title. The inspiration behind the title actually comes from a sweater I randomly saw someone wearing in an Instagram post a while ago – the back of this person’s hoodie read ‘your anxiety is lying to you,’ and because I am … More Your anxiety is lying to you

As it turns out, shower mirrors are great gadgets

Prior to living with my husband, I’ve never given much thought to who might require the services of a reflective surface while showering. As a woman, the regions of my body that require hair removal aren’t anywhere close to my face, therefore I’m not someone who needs a mirror in the shower as I’m not … More As it turns out, shower mirrors are great gadgets

Do yourself a favour and watch ‘You People’

I will begin this post by addressing the fact that while it is a recent release, thus far, the film ‘You People,’ directed by Kenya Barris and Jonah Hill, has earned some ratings that are absolute shit. Just about every Google search result depicts an onslaught of foul words and critiques towards this film, and … More Do yourself a favour and watch ‘You People’

Read this if you’re a fan of Vietnamese spring rolls

When my Oma and Opa were still here with us Earth-side, towards the end of their lives, they found themselves living in Hamilton. They lived in a retirement home, and once a week, my mom would head to the Hammer to visit with them, run any errands then required, etc. I was in university during … More Read this if you’re a fan of Vietnamese spring rolls

Do yourself a favour and stop using Bath & Body Works products

I think I could garner a unanimous agreement from women in my generation that using Bath & Body Works products while in elementary and high school was a rite of passage. When I was about 12, Bath & Body Works products, specifically their scented ones, were all the rage among my peers and me, specifically … More Do yourself a favour and stop using Bath & Body Works products

You never know who you might be talking to

This past weekend, my mom, sister and me took a much-needed afternoon to get away from the farm for a little while. Anyone who comes from a farm background will know precisely what I mean in my previous statement, and for anyone unfamiliar with agriculture and farming families, I’ll briefly explain; because most family farms … More You never know who you might be talking to

Should you do yoga?

One of my dearest friends recently set out on a lifelong goal of becoming a certified yoga instructor. She travelled to Costa Rica to do so and completed an intensive and thorough course to earn her yoga teaching credentials, and in chatting with her about it and everything the course entailed, I’ve come to not … More Should you do yoga?

Bear with me…

I won’t go so far as to say the title of today’s post is an improvement from yesterday’s, but I do think it’s slightly less corny. I could be completely wrong and it is possible today’s title is, in fact, even worse than yesterday’s, but I like to be as optimistic as possible, so let’s … More Bear with me…

How ‘bear’ you?

Please excuse my sad attempt at a quirky pun for the title of today’s post. Bear puns aren’t exactly the most common thing, so it was a little tricky trying to make a play on words about these majestic beasts. Bears scare the absolute shit out of me, and they always have. I’ve been scared … More How ‘bear’ you?

Here’s why you need to get yourself a Lindo Eco Clean Face Brush

For the first time, Blaine, myself, his brother, his sister-in-law, and his sister participated in a Secret Santa gift exchange for Christmas that just passed. Normally, we set a budget and get gifts for all of us, from all of us, but this year, we decided to switch things up and try our hand at … More Here’s why you need to get yourself a Lindo Eco Clean Face Brush

Get your goat on

I feel as though one could strongly argue that there are two types of people in this world; ones who love and adore goats, and others who don’t, likely because they’ve had an unfortunate encounter with one or something along those lines. At least, that’s the only reason I can come up with as to … More Get your goat on

Here’s how to make your own Bits and Bites

My husband is a tremendous fan of Bits and Bits, specifically the barbeque flavour, which can be tricky to find. His ultimate preference, however, is his mom’s homemade Bits and Bits, and understandably so; I have yet to consume anything my mother-in-law has prepared that is anything shy of phenomenal, and her Bits and Bites … More Here’s how to make your own Bits and Bites
