Depending on the severity of it, anxiety can be an incredibly debilitating condition to live with. It has the ability to interfere with everyday life, decisions, responsibilities and relationships, and over time, it can feel rather consuming.

I’ve often said that doing something positive for someone other than ourselves can evoke feelings of happiness.

But, according to an article from The Good News Network, there might be a scientific … More Do good, feel good
I recently finished watching The Witcher on Netflix, and because of the gaping void the absence of this show has left in my life, I had to figure out which show to begin next.

I wrote a post a little while ago discussing a hair serum I purchased in an attempt to tame my unruly flyaways.

Similar to my post the other day listing what Rotten Tomatoes deemed as the best flicks of the former year, I thought I would write a post regarding the best books of 2019. Books, to me, are even more subjective than movies are, so as I stated in the best movies post, keep in mind … More The best books of 2019
As I mentioned the other day, I recently watched the first season of Netflix’s The Witcher. As a result of my significant appreciation for this series, and furthermore for the main character, Geralt of Rivia, I thought I would write a post about Henry Cavill, the man to thank for bringing Geralt to life on the big … More Profile: Henry Cavill
Movies are something that have relevance to almost everyone. Regardless of our genre preferences, movies have the ability to draw parallels between us and create unification, and we most certainly have our favourites.

There’s been much debate over the years as to whether or not drinking coffee can be beneficial for those who consume it. Some believe there are advantages to drinking this magical bean juice while other argue it’s disadvantageous, but personally, I’ve been drinking the stuff for far too long to care either way. There is … More Good news, coffee lovers; java can help with weight loss

New Year’s Eve is an exciting time for everyone. It signifies new beginnings, a fresh start, and a celebratory approach to a new calendar year. For me, though, this past New Year’s Eve was extra exciting. My boyfriend informed me that we were going to have a relatively low key New Years Eve – he … More Ringing in the New Year (literally)
It’s hard to believe that we as a society have made any sort of advancement in terms of providing aid to innocent children, considering the rather bleak state of the world. But, I am pleased to report that in the past two decades, over 220 million children have been rescued from forced labour, marriage and … More Believe it or not, the world is progressing in terms of helping children

This time, though, there’s tequila involved, … More Turning tequila into … straws?
Salad, from my own observations, has a bad reputation. When most of us hear the term ‘salad,’ our thoughts automatically associate it with being bland, boring, and certainly not something we typically have a hankering for. I feel obligated to stick up for salads a little bit, though. I personally love salad, and I’m not … More Here’s how to spruce up your salad
Game of Thrones fans, listen up; there’s a new series in town, and it’s called The Witcher. By no means am I attempting to correlate a relationship between Game of Thrones and The Witcher, because that would simply be incorrect. Both series abide by entirely different storylines and characters, but I suppose one could compare them in terms … More Have you watched The Witcher?
Rolls-Royce is a name that is arguably synonymous with cars. Pretty snazzy cars, to be exact. While we’re pretty familiar with Rolls-Royce vehicles, I would imagine most of us haven’t heard of an aircraft from the company. That is, we likely haven’t heard of it until now. Rolls-Royce has “unveiled its first all-electric plane—and they … More Rolls-Royce debuts its all-electric aircraft

Single-use plastics are becoming a thing of the past thanks to a push for environmental sustainability, and more, reusable products to cut down on waste. We’ve arguably all seen some of these products, since there are more and more becoming available, but I doubt you’ve encountered grain-based bowls as a means to cut down on … More Move over, plastic plates; wheat bowls are here
Frostbite, as we all know, is no joke. Frostbite occurs when the skin and underlying tissue becomes frozen, typically affecting the fingers, toes, ears, nose, chin and cheeks. When someone has frostbite, the skin becomes extremely cold and red, and soon turns numb, firm and pale. I would imagine anyone who has ever experienced frostbite … More Say goodbye to frostbite with this innovative spray
Christmas trees, for many of us, are an integral component of the holiday season.

We live in a world that is very exterior-focused. By that, I’m referring to how socially constructed standards of appearances have pushed themselves so strongly into our consciousnesses that how we look and act has become integral components of how we live our daily lives.

I would argue that just about every couple on planet earth has found themselves face-to-face with the age-old dilemma of their partner hogging the blankets.

Christmas songs, for many people, are a touchy subject, I would say. That might sound a little odd outright, but hear me out.

I would argue most people are somewhat torn regarding New Years resolutions.
