Have you seen ‘John Q’?

When Blaine and I were scrolling through Netflix on the weekend, trying to find something to watch, Blaine just about jumped off the couch in excitement when he saw that ‘John Q’ was recently added. I was a little clueless as to why Blaine was so thrilled to see this title, and when I informed … More Have you seen ‘John Q’?

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

Should you do yoga?

One of my dearest friends recently set out on a lifelong goal of becoming a certified yoga instructor.

Why are we fat-shaming people trying to lose weight?

There is a strong chance you’re heard the term fat-shaming before. In simple words, it essentially involves making someone overweight feel like a complete piece of shit because of their size, invalidating their own emotions and the fact that they’re a human being in the process. Socially, we have been conditioned to perceive overweight people … More Why are we fat-shaming people trying to lose weight?

Examining the concept of elder abuse

Eder abuse, for anyone unfamiliar with the term, is rather adequately explained within its own title – directing abusive behaviour towards an elderly person, whether it be mental, physical or emotional, is considered elder abuse. I would argue that when the majority of us contemplate what is considered to be elder abuse, we picture blatant, … More Examining the concept of elder abuse

Here’s how hard water shampoo and conditioner treat your hair

I mentioned in a post a while back that Blaine and I are dealing with some rather hard water in the house we live in. We have a water softener waiting to be installed, but in the meantime, our hair has taken a bit of a beating from the effects of hard water, and I … More Here’s how hard water shampoo and conditioner treat your hair

Why do you smoke?

I’ve debated whether or not I should share here on my blog that I dabble in cannabis from time to time, my reservations being that I don’t want anyone misconstruing my marijuana use and assuming I’m competing with Snoop in terms of how high I can possibly be. I assure you that as much as … More Why do you smoke?

On the hunt for a reusable water bottle? Look no further

Anyone who knows me personally knows I rarely leave the house without my obnoxiously large water bottle. I get chirped quite frequently by my family and friends for going out in public with a literal water jug, but I have no shame and couldn’t care less if people think I have gills or some shit … More On the hunt for a reusable water bottle? Look no further

Why are we encouraging body image issues via media?

Every now and then, I’ll check the Apple News app on my iPhone. I will be fully transparent and admit I don’t often check the news, mainly because for so long the only topic being covered was COVID-19, and also because it’s rather fucking depressing. But, because I feel a moral obligation to stay up-to-date … More Why are we encouraging body image issues via media?

Here’s how to make some wicked chicken breasts in an air fryer

The other night, I found myself in a bit of a pickle in regard to what exactly I was going to make for dinner on this particular evening for Blaine and me. I knew I was making pasta of some sort, but needed to come up with a protein, and I was running short on … More Here’s how to make some wicked chicken breasts in an air fryer

PSA: Stop using hydrogen peroxide to clean wounds

I’m willing to bet that the majority of us, upon injuring ourselves, naturally reach for hydrogen peroxide to disinfect said wound. And, really, why wouldn’t we; most of us have been under the impression that hydrogen peroxide is the best agent when it comes to cleaning cuts, scrapes and more, but I am here to … More PSA: Stop using hydrogen peroxide to clean wounds

Why do we continue to ignore male self-esteem issues?

It is arguable that when most of us hear the phrases ‘body image’ or ‘self-esteem’, our minds typically wander in the direction of fathoming women, or a woman. We associate issues with confidence and how we perceive our bodies predominately with the female sex because we have been socially conditioned to affiliate these problems with … More Why do we continue to ignore male self-esteem issues?
