‘Midnight in the Switchgrass’: is it worth the watch?

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. We wanted to switch it up a bit, so after browsing through Netflix, we settled on a … More ‘Midnight in the Switchgrass’: is it worth the watch?

The importance of clear communication in conflict

I’m willing to bet that just about all of us have been in a situation in which a conflict presents itself and, as a result of muddled and misconstrued communication, messages were misinterpreted and the conflict became even more pronounced. Things were said, feelings were hurt, and the issue at hand only became more intensified … More The importance of clear communication in conflict

The beauty of remaining silent when you have nothing nice to offer

It’s a philosophy that we arguably all have heard at some point or another, but regardless of its prominence, the concept of staying silent when we have nothing nice to say is one that remains absolutely relevant, and likely will continue to be, infinitely. It’s a rather simple yet effective ideology, and I believe it … More The beauty of remaining silent when you have nothing nice to offer

Attention all vapers: the Vaporesso Xros 2 is what you want and need

I’ve been blogging here for a few years now, and not once, to the best of my recollection, have I shared that I am a smoker. I think my hesitance to share this with you is because when I first started smoking way back when I was in university, I hid it from most people. … More Attention all vapers: the Vaporesso Xros 2 is what you want and need

Here’s how to make your own Ferrero Rocher’s at home

I have yet to come across someone who isn’t a fan of Ferrero Rocher’s. Quite honestly, I think if I ever were to come across someone who dislikes them I would smack them upside the head for the simple reason I cannot fathom any reason as to why one would not enjoy these heavenly little … More Here’s how to make your own Ferrero Rocher’s at home

The importance of making realistic New Year’s resolutions

Yup, it’s that time of year again. With the ending of one year and the beginning of another, chances are you’ve been seeing and hearing a lot about what people’s New Year’s resolutions consist of. Personally, I don’t give a deuce what other folks’ resolutions are, but if you so wish to share with me, … More The importance of making realistic New Year’s resolutions

All hail L’Oréal Paris Telescopic mascara

Mascara, for me, personally, has always been an absolutely essential component in my makeup routine. I have smaller, hooded eyes, so when I don’t wear mascara, people typically ask me if I am exceptionally tired, or exceptionally sick. Being a woman is just grand sometimes, I’ll tell ya. I’ve tried my share of mascara over … More All hail L’Oréal Paris Telescopic mascara

The significance of taking the time to explore what we love

The other day, I had a bit of a twilight zone moment, if you will. I was exercising in my basement, and for some unknown reason, my mind was suddenly inundated with memories from when I was playing the sport of rugby, which I loved. It was a passion of mine, when I was playing, … More The significance of taking the time to explore what we love

The significance of identifying what truly matters at Christmas

This years Christmas was a unique one. Come to think of it, so was last years. And the year before that. It’s safe to say that COVID has made its presence known in the context of Christmas and celebratory gatherings in general, and I would wager most of us have experienced disruptions in plans as … More The significance of identifying what truly matters at Christmas

A moment of appreciation for the Shrek franchise

My family and I had a bit of an adverse Christmas eve a couple of nights ago, if you will. Normally, on Christmas Eve, we attend mass and go to my Nagymama’s (Hungarian for grandmother) house with my dad’s sister, her husband and their kids. Unfortunately, the night before, my sister and I were, unknowingly, … More A moment of appreciation for the Shrek franchise

Here’s why you should spend more time with your siblings

I should arguably preface this post by stating that I completely and entirely recognize that not everyone has siblings, and further, there are some of us who have tarnished relationships with our siblings. I do not mean to generalize, but rather, I wish to orchestrate this post in a manner that is relevant to those … More Here’s why you should spend more time with your siblings
