When you spend money on … More Product review: Bath & Body Works Aromatherapy Comfort Vanilla and Patchouli Moisturizing Body Cream

In working at Bonnieheath Estate, a lavender farm and winery, I’ve come to develop a relatively firm understanding of lavender.

Stop comparing and start celebrating

Social media, as wonderful as it can be, can simultaneously be destructive towards those who make use of it. And by destructive, I’m referring to the inevitable occurrence of comparison that comes with social media. It’s extremely difficult to avoid comparing ourselves to others when we’re scrolling through our social media timelines. We compare ourselves … More Stop comparing and start celebrating

Looking for a unique twist on granola? Check out Bakery on Main

Is less more when it comes to washing your hair?

Hair hygiene is something we’re taught from a young age. It is something that has become a repetitive practice in our lives, something that doesn’t demand much thought. Because of the repetitive nature of hair hygiene, we fail to ever think twice about it. For the most part, anyways. But, I started to give it … More Is less more when it comes to washing your hair?

Product review: L’Oréal Paris Sublime Bronze Tinted Self-Tanning Luminous Bronzer

Summertime, for me, is peak tan season. By tan, I’m referring to the tan I receive when I’m outside working on the farm. Not from a tanning bed or anything like that.

And, as a … More Product review: L’Oréal Paris Sublime Bronze Tinted Self-Tanning Luminous Bronzer

It just so happens that after some experimenting and luck, I’ve managed to construct my own … More Here’s how to make a Starbucks-worthy, dairy-free steamer

Curious as to what a colonoscopy entails?

Earlier this week, I had a colonoscopy and a gastroscopy done. And, to answer your likely immediate question, no, it wasn’t the most pleasant experience. These procedures were performed because of my stomach/digestive issues, and considering I’ve never had any sort of gastric procedure performed before, I was a little unsure of what to expect. … More Curious as to what a colonoscopy entails?
