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.

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?
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
Many moons ago, I got my first off-farm job working at Pita Pit in West Brantford.

Anyone who knows me personally will arguably read this post’s title and chuckle to themselves because it is a rather hypocritical statement for me to make.

This past weekend, my family and I ventured down to Niagara, my old stomping grounds, for my cousin’s wedding. I say stomping grounds not because I ever officially lived in Niagara, but because I did five years of schooling in the region and lived in student housing. My sister and I are bridesmaids for my … More Have you been to Casa Mia Ristorante and Bar in Niagara?
When it comes to cookies, it is safe to say I have my favourites. Cookies as a general concept are one of my preferred desserts, but if I had to pick my go-to flavours, they would be chocolate chip, oatmeal, and sugar cookies.

I will be entirely transparent in admitting that it has been a hot minute since I have watched a horror movie. For a while there, I was watching one a week or so, but as of late I have fallen off of the horror movie wagon and am struggling to get back on it. I … More Looking for some scary movies to watch this Halloween? Read this
I’ve always found the concept of prayer to be an interesting one, mainly because of how subjective it is depending on the person praying and their spiritual or religious beliefs. For some of us, prayer is a simple conversation with the man upstairs, once or periodically throughout the day. For others, prayer involves getting down … More How do you pray?
I had heard about Jeffrey Dahmer prior to watching Netflix’s new release, ‘Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story’, but I didn’t necessarily understand the scope of his crimes and the atrocious acts he committed until I tuned into the series. I knew he was an American serial killer, but that was about it, and the more … More Have you seen Netflix’s ‘Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story’?
Blaine, my husband, is an avid sports fan. He always has been, to the best of my knowledge, and he’s been playing hockey and baseball since he was a wee guy.

Coffee is arguably one of those things in life that a lot of us refuse to go without.

(part one)
There have been a few instances in my life in which I have been told I have an old soul.

Do I look that … More Do you feel like you belong in a different time?
On Tuesday, my mom, my dad and I ventured to our local movie theatre to see the newest Top Gun movie; Top Gun: Maverick.

When I was a teenager, I experienced the phase I believe many teenage girls do which involves becoming somewhat heavily invested in ~inspirational~ quotes. I’m not exactly sure as to what it is that spurs this longing deep within the spirit of most adolescent girls to become fixated with quotes found on platforms like Pinterest … More Need some inspiration?

Relationships as a concept are a highly subjective one. No two relationships look the same considering no two people are exactly the same, so approaching a relationship with an objective mindset isn’t going to work out well. While relationships are subjective in terms of their composition, there are things within relationships that are, in fact, … More The significance of understanding boundaries in relationships
I firmly believe anyone who claims they don’t like ice cream is a damn liar. That may sound harsh, but it’s the truth. Even if you’re lactose intolerant, there’s always a reason to eat ice cream. It’s worth the gas, bloating and diarrhea, if you ask me, so unless you have a deathly allergy, don’t … More Is Tim Horton’s Ice Cream worth buying?
Anyone who considers themselves to be a foodie is arguably familiar with The Mandarin.

I think it is fair to say that the majority of long-term romantic couples struggle to keep the concept of dating alive and well. And, really, it’s understandable; I believe it makes sense that in relationships that have been in existence for a few years the idea of dating becomes one of the past. We … More Read this for some date inspiration
I’m willing to bet that the majority of us are familiar with dandelions, mainly as a result of recess during our childhoods. At least, my childhood recesses consisted of attacking one another with the flower and smearing yellow up and down our arms as if an infant took a massive shit upon us. Perhaps I … More Should you be eating dandelions?
Anyone who is relatively familiar with the English language could have probably guessed that a single post wouldn’t suffice to delve into the convoluted aspect of understanding how to properly use quotations in this particular language. I probably could have jammed all of the learnings affiliated with proper quotation use in English into one blog … More Navigating the use of quotation marks, continued
I use WordPress to operate my blog. When I first started doing this about six years ago, I initially went with a different blogging website; Blogger. I used it for a few weeks, though realized that its intricacies and glitches weren’t for me, and after doing a little bit of research to determine the best … More How do we feel about podcasts?
I wouldn’t exactly say I’m shy when it comes to trying new makeup products. When I say new products, I’m referring to buying new versions of the same items I’ve been using for a while now, because while I’m willing to try new things in the makeup realm, I’m not overly adventurous. I’m not sure … More Looking for an eyebrow filler? Read this
I am what I would consider a combination of an introvert and an extrovert. I think I’ve always been a mix of the two, as best as I can recall, and I try to maintain a relatively equal balance between both ends of my social spectrum. As much as I enjoy socializing and spending time … More The beauty of spending time with yourself
As noted in Sunday’s post, this past weekend, my mom and dad celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary.

A few nights ago, Blaine and I were finishing up an episode of ‘Queer Eye’ at his place. The episodes are roughly 40 minutes or so, meaning when it finished we had to find something else to watch.

My sister celebrated her 29th birthday earlier this week, and her one request to commemorate her special day was to make a trip down to Bass Pro with myself and my parents.
