Allow me to begin this post by stating if you’re debating whether or not to spend the money and invest in a pair of Airpods for yourself, don’t. I’m saying this because I, like many others, fell victim to Airpods when they first came out and purchased them hurriedly because they were the wireless headphones … More Looking for some wireless headphones?

Upon sitting down to compose today’s post, I was once again met with some highly discouraging writer’s block. I think I sat and stared at my laptop screen for 15 minutes until, out of desperation, I turned next to Blaine (he was watching television in our room) and asked him for some inspiration. He pondered … More Need a new mattress? Read this
If you have oily skin, you may be inclined to believe that your skin doesn’t require any additional moisture. The idea makes sense, really; if your skin already resembles the bottom of a pan after cooking bacon, you’re probably not thinking about when to reapply said grease. While this belief makes sense in principle, it … More Looking for a reliable face moisturizer? Look no further
Blaine and I have been parents to our pup, Lenny, for a little less than two months now. She has certainly shown her true colours in the last while, to say the least, and while Blaine and I are thrilled she has become comfortable with us, we aren’t the biggest fans of her chewing tendencies … More Is your dog a chewer?

Earlier this week, my sister accompanied me on a much-needed Costco trip. I haven’t been to Costco for a hot minute, and I like to visit a few times a year to stock up on certain items, and also to peruse the shelves and see what is new and exciting. When my sister and I … More Need some energy? Try a ZOA
Anyone who has the (hopefully) pleasure of knowing me is certainly familiar with my snacking antics. I eat a lot, I eat regularly, and I love fruit, therefore a common snack food I enjoy is 100 per cent fruit bars that don’t contain any additional sugar. I have never been able to comprehend why the … More SunRype versus That’s It: a fruit bar showdown
I am not someone who supports the idea of technological advancements costing actual living people jobs. I think it’s rather shitty, as do a lot of people, and with the way things are going, I imagine we will see even more jobs lost to automation in the near future. The one and only exception I … More Struggling to keep your floors clean? Read this
Anyone who is prone to getting knots in their hair can attest to the unprecedented rage that rears its ugly head when trying to rake a comb through a tumbleweed. At least, the rage I encounter when trying to comb through damn near dreadlocks in my hair is tremendous. I figure the rage is a … More Got hair knots? Read this
I, like a lot of folks out there, once relied on Batiste dry shampoo to help breathe some new life into my hair after going a few days without washing it. The shit worked well; it arguably was ‘the’ dry shampoo to use because of how well it performed in the sense of alleviating oil … More Looking for some natural dry shampoo options? Read this
Prior to living with my husband, I’ve never given much thought to who might require the services of a reflective surface while showering. As a woman, the regions of my body that require hair removal aren’t anywhere close to my face, therefore I’m not someone who needs a mirror in the shower as I’m not … More As it turns out, shower mirrors are great gadgets
I should probably clarify the question that exists within the title of today’s post. When I say cat’s claw, I’m not referring to a literal cat claw that can be found attached to the pad of their foot; rather, I’m making reference to cat’s claw as an herb, and if you haven’t heard of it, … More What in the heck is cat’s claw?
I can’t exactly say I’ve kept my love and adoration for perfume a secret here on my blog. I’ve been obsessed with all things scented from a young age, and that is not an exaggeration; when I was about 12 or so, my mom used to have a rule that I had to keep my … More Is Burberry Her Eau De Parfum Spray worth buying?
I think I could garner a unanimous agreement from women in my generation that using Bath & Body Works products while in elementary and high school was a rite of passage. When I was about 12, Bath & Body Works products, specifically their scented ones, were all the rage among my peers and me, specifically … More Do yourself a favour and stop using Bath & Body Works products
Anyone who has been following my blog to any extent is arguably aware of the fact that I am an adult woman and still deal with acne. I’ll be 28 this May, and I’ve said it before and I shall again – my skin seems to be shittier in terms of acne now that I’m … More Are these two products the key to clear skin?
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. Normally, we set a budget and get gifts for all of us, from all of us, but this year, we decided to switch things up and try our hand at … More Here’s why you need to get yourself a Lindo Eco Clean Face Brush
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?
The relationship between myself and my eyebrows is an extensive one, with an interesting history. I have quite literally done just about everything to my eyebrows over the course of the years; I’ve overplucked them, under plucked them, failed miserably in attempting to shape them, accidentally removed half of one, filled them in too heavily, … More Know your brows
I have expressed my love for Morroccanoil hair products a few times already here on my blog, and I don’t plan on stopping anytime soon. I have yet to try a product made by this brand that is anything short of great, and it treats my hair rather nicely, if I may say so. I’ve … More Here’s why you should bless your hair with some Morroccanoil Treatment
For anyone unaware, Lush Cosmetics is a company that specializes in skin and bath-related products, making everything from bath bombs to facial soap bars. Their products are stellar thanks to the strict company policies they abide by, and to give you a sense of what I mean by this, check out the following excerpt from … More If you’re a fan of Lush, read this
I mentioned in a post a while back that Blaine and I are dealing with some rather hard water in the house we live in. We have a water softener waiting to be installed, but in the meantime, our hair has taken a bit of a beating from the effects of hard water, and I … More Here’s how hard water shampoo and conditioner treat your hair
I am someone who relies a little heavily upon the Reminders app on my iPhone. It’s borderline ridiculous how much I use it, and I think it’s a phenomenal tool for people who have a few different deadlines and reminders on their minds to keep track of everything. I decided, though, that for my tutoring … More Do yourself a favour and visit Indigo.ca right now
Allow me to begin this post by stating the somewhat obvious – the fact I am writing a post about cat dandruff and how to combat it isn’t necessarily a situation that is overly applicable to everyone, so rather than belittling me because I care about my cats’ health and making me feel like an … More Does your cat have dandruff? Read this
Anyone who knows me personally knows I rarely leave the house without my obnoxiously large water bottle. I get chirped quite frequently by my family and friends for going out in public with a literal water jug, but I have no shame and couldn’t care less if people think I have gills or some shit … More On the hunt for a reusable water bottle? Look no further
If you’ve been following my blog to any extent since I started it a few years back, you’re probably aware that I have acne, as I discuss acne-related products every now and then based on my own experiences with them. If you’re new to my blog, welcome, and allow me to inform you that I … More Looking for an effective spot treatment? Read this
I’ve had my eyes on an air fryer ever since Blaine and I moved into our home about four months ago. I figured I could ask for one for Christmas, or wait until one comes on sale, and to be honest, I forgot about getting one for a little while. That is, until I saw … More Yes, you really do need an air fryer
I’m not someone who uses face masks to the extent I arguably should. Masks are great for your skin for a wide variety of reasons, and different masks offer different benefits. Generally speaking, any time I do happen to make use of a face mask, it’s for my acne, acne scars and pigmentation, so I … More Looking for a new face mask? Read this
I’ve been vaping for a couple of years now. I originally bought a vape in hopes of it allowing me to cut back on how many cigarettes I smoke in a given day, and I do believe it has helped me to cut back a bit. Perhaps not as much as I would like, but … More What is your go-to vape flavour?
One of the last times I made a trip to Costco, I came across a product in their snack section that caught my interest. I spotted some fruit bars, and because so many of these types of items contain a lot more than you’re anticipating (like excess sugar), I always check out the ingredients. I … More Looking for a healthy snack? Read this
Fall has certainly made its presence known here in Ontario as of late. Once the official first day of Autumn arrived, the temperature dropped dramatically, and it hasn’t really come back up into what one may consider warm temperatures. Now that fall is upon us and winter is coming (said in John Snow’s voice), there … More Dry hair? Read this
Quite a few years ago, I was blessed to come across an item in the supermarket known as Tajín. If I remember correctly, I picked this up while doing some grocery shopping while I was in university, and I fell head-over-heels in love with the stuff. Devastatingly, I haven’t been able to spot this glorious … More Looking to flavour your food with something new? Read this
