I absolutely love Mexican food. My entire family does, actually, so when we have the opportunity to grab some, you can bet your sombrero we do. My sister has been going to Guac Mexi Grill in Brantford for a few years now. I’ve eaten there a few times, though I haven’t been for quite a … More Have you been to Guac Mexi Grill?
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?
I will be entirely candid and admit that as much as I like to believe I’m super savvy and knowledgeable in the realm of skincare, I’m really not. I mean, I’m not a complete imbicile when it comes to knowing what works for my own skin, but I’m certainly not a professional. I am in … More Looking for an affordable chemical peel? Read this
I am a practicing Catholic and have been my entire life, arguably as a result of the influence of my religious mother. She and I attend mass weekly, and have for a while, and I imagine we will continue to do so for a long time. Priests come and go in their designated positions serving … More Challenging expectations in the priesthood
If I were to start this post by preaching to you that a change in attitude can result in a change in your overall life, there is a probable chance you would tell me to shut the hell up. And, honestly, rightly so. We’ve all heard about how powerful a positive attitude can be, and … More The power of shifting perspective
Allow me to begin this post by stating that I am not, by any means, a professional creative writer. I’m not even entirely sure as to how one goes about becoming a certified creative writer; is one granted this title after publishing a text? Or perhaps the title is bestowed on someone who undergoes proper … More Read this for some creative writing tips
The length of my hair, currently, is arguably the longest it has ever been. I’ve had long hair for a while now, long meaning it stops just above my ass. I had a trim last April and haven’t had one since as I am trying to keep my hair as long as possible for my … More Are Morroccanoil shampoo and conditioner worth the money?
This past Monday was Blue Monday. In case you’re unfamiliar with what exactly Blue Monday is, it is referred to as, essentially, the most depressing day of the year. I didn’t notice myself feeling more depressed than I normally would on this year’s Blue Monday date, but I thought I would dedicate a post to … More Need a pick-me-up? Read this
The term Bridezilla is one most of us have likely heard of before. Normally, in my own words, it refers to a person who is engaged to be married who may not necessarily be the nicest in regards to wedding planning as a whole. Some indications that may suggest someone is being a Bridezilla include, … More Challenging the concept of being a Bridezilla
I’ve mentioned my love for Hungarian cuisine here on my blog before, and while I may have already said it, trust me when I say I will say it again. And again. And probably again. If you’re Hungarian like myself, or have sampled Hungarian food at any point in time, you know what I’m talking … More Here’s how to make homemade Hungarian goulash
There is a stereotype in existence that suggests ‘horse girls’ are weird. I’m not entirely sure how or why this stereotype came to be, but I would like to refute it, and strongly; I do not think horse girls are weird, and if anything, I think they’re, usually, the complete opposite. Any kid that becomes … More A moment of appreciation for ‘Seabiscuit’
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. Thanks to COVID we haven’t really been out a whole lot, and while venturing out to Bass Pro may not seem like the … More A moment of appreciation for Bass Pro
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
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
I apologize if I am sounding a bit like a broken record as I am certain I composed a post on the same subject matter not that long ago, but hear me out. I very much feel as though the ‘little things’ in life that pack a big punch are so often overlooked, and it … More Little things, big impact
Control is a facet of life that, I believe, a lot of us develop a borderline toxic mentality towards. There are a lot of things in life we can control, for example, what we put into our bodies, the sort of work we do, who we form relationships with, what we purchase, etc. In fact, … More No, you really can’t control everything
When I was at Blaine’s the other evening, we were a bit bummed to discover that his Playstation was on the fritz and refused to load or play any films or television shows. At first, we thought his wifi network wasn’t working, but after looking it up online, we learned that the entire Playstation network … More Have you seen ‘Stop-Loss’?
I mentioned in a post a little who ago that I recently found out that I have something called a Baker’s Cyst in my left knee. More specifically, in the back of it, which I find quite interesting considering all of the pain in my knee is in the front, but the human body doesn’t … More Need a knee brace? Look no further
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
Emotions are something that all of us have, but they aren’t something all of can say we have tremendous and rigorous control over. Some of us fare better than others in this department, which is understandable considering we as people all have varying levels of sensitivity, but I thought it might be useful to discuss … More Here’s how to better manage emotions
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
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
My family and I have some Hungarian roots, courtesy of my dads side of the fam jam. My dads father was a first generation Canadian as his father emigrated to Canada from Hungary a ways back, and we still have a solid amount of family over there, whom we have had the pleasure of visiting … More Have you been to Budapest in Brantford?
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 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
I think it is safe to say that all of us, at some point or another, experience moodiness. It’s a rather normal element in the human composition, thanks to hormones and all that fun stuff, but some of us are more severely affected than others when it comes to not only experiencing moodiness, but further, … More How to deal with moody people
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
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
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
As reluctant as I am to admit that I have dark circles under my eyes at the ripe age of 26, I also figure it might be beneficial to share this in case there are other young folks out there experiencing the same thing and feeling badly about it.
