I will begin this post by acknowledging the fact that the name I have given a particular food dish I recently made may be entirely inaccurate. Personally, I think calling what I made a sausage hash encapsulates this dish in all its glory, but I’m not a chef, nor am I a food expert. So, … More Let’s make sausage hash
Anyone who is a fan of Freddie or Queen will probably read the title of this post, think to themselves, yes, let’s, and then carry on with their day. I say this because Freddie Mercury is arguably one of the few people to have lived that can simply have their name read aloud and garner … More Let’s hear it for Freddie Mercury
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’
I could be completely wrong in this observation, but based on my own experiences, I think there are two mentalities people have towards the dollar store in this world – you either love it or hate it, and there isn’t usually any sort of middle ground or an in-between. I think anyone who pulls their … More Don’t underestimate the dollar store
To the best of my recollection, I believe I have had my blog going strong for at least five years now. There is a solid chance I’ve been blogging longer than five years, but I don’t really feel like scrolling all the way back to my very first post – this would take hours and … More The beauty of blogging
I’m not exactly sure if the term ‘life timeline’ is the best way to encapsulate what I’m referring to, but hear me out. I haven’t heard another term for it as of yet, so we will tentatively stick with ‘life timeline’ for now. When I say life timeline, I’m making reference to how one’s life … More Stop comparing your life timeline to others
I should probably clarify the question that exists within the title of today’s post. When I say cat’s claw, I’m not referring to a literal cat claw that can be found attached to the pad of their foot; rather, I’m making reference to cat’s claw as an herb, and if you haven’t heard of it, … More What in the heck is cat’s claw?
I can’t exactly say I’ve kept my love and adoration for perfume a secret here on my blog. I’ve been obsessed with all things scented from a young age, and that is not an exaggeration; when I was about 12 or so, my mom used to have a rule that I had to keep my … More Is Burberry Her Eau De Parfum Spray worth buying?
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
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
Anyone who has been following my blog to any extent is arguably aware of the fact that I am an adult woman and still deal with acne. I’ll be 28 this May, and I’ve said it before and I shall again – my skin seems to be shittier in terms of acne now that I’m … More Are these two products the key to clear skin?
I’m pretty sure I’ve mentioned this before, but in case I haven’t, allow me this opportunity to inform you all that Blaine works on his family’s cattle farm. It’s a beef operation, meaning the cattle aren’t exclusively Holstein for producing milk; rather, these cows are a variety of breeds and are raised for consumption. Being … More Let’s make homemade hamburgers
As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, my mom, sister and I spent an afternoon in Cambridge on the weekend to do a little bit of shopping. After our shopping came to a conclusion, we were trying to figure out where to go for dinner. My sister did a quick Google search to see what restaurants … More Have you been to The Black Badger in Cambridge?
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
I’ll admit I perhaps wasn’t entirely aware of each and every benefit the consumption of spinach offers, but here we are with a part two post. Apparently, spinach is one hell of a superfood, so much so that it requires two separate posts to cover all of the wonderful advantages that come with eating it. … More Let’s hear it for spinach, again (part two)
If you’ve been around the block a time or two, you’re probably aware of the fact that spinach is considered to be a superfood. Superfoods are foods that go above and beyond in terms of the nutrients they offer, and spinach is one of the more well-known superfoods if I had to guess. I mean, … More Let’s hear it for spinach (part one)
If you’re a PC fan, allow me to start this post off by warning you that you’re probably going to want to move your cursor toward the upper left corner of your screen and hit the red button with the ‘x’ on it. Then again, I’m not entirely certain that’s the location of the ‘exit’ … More Let’s hear it for the MacBook Air
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?
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…
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?
While I wouldn’t go so far as to say my cooking can compete with the likes of Ina Garten, I will say that I’m not as terrible in the kitchen as I may have made myself to believe. When I was a kid, I was obsessed with cooking and baking, and my parents were kind … More Try your hand at some homemade pizza
I follow a gal on Instagram who goes by the name of Zoe Roe. Initially, I started following her because I find her and her content to be hilarious, but in the process of following her on Instagram, I came to the realization that she, like myself, has a history with eating disorders, and some … More Can we stop glorifying people with disordered eating?
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
Here we are, once again, chatting about goats. I did stipulate in yesterday’s post that today’s would be a continuation of all things goat, and I’m not here to disappoint anyone. Again, this information comes from livelyrun.com. I realize if you’re located in an urban setting, finding a goat may not be the easiest thing … More Get your goat on, again
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
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
If I had to guess, I would wager that between myself and my family, we, collectively over the span of a few years, have probably gone through half-a-dozen Keurig machines. I won’t lie to you; considering my family’s track record with these devices, I really didn’t have a whole lot of faith in them. I … More What’s your go-to Keurig pod?
The relationship between myself and my eyebrows is an extensive one, with an interesting history. I have quite literally done just about everything to my eyebrows over the course of the years; I’ve overplucked them, under plucked them, failed miserably in attempting to shape them, accidentally removed half of one, filled them in too heavily, … More Know your brows
In case you haven’t heard of Henry Cavill, allow me to give you a brief synopsis. He is arguably one of the most attractive men to ever grace planet Earth; he is absolutely sculpted in terms of muscle and physique; I don’t know him personally, and doubt I ever will, but he seems sincere, genuine … More No Henry Cavill? No Witcher
I have expressed my love for Morroccanoil hair products a few times already here on my blog, and I don’t plan on stopping anytime soon. I have yet to try a product made by this brand that is anything short of great, and it treats my hair rather nicely, if I may say so. I’ve … More Here’s why you should bless your hair with some Morroccanoil Treatment
