For anyone who read the title of this post and rolled their eyes, internally thinking ‘did she not literally just write about this damn show?’ I request your patience. Yes, I did recently write a post about this show. However, at the conclusion of this post I said I would update all of you once … More Netflix: Valhalla – is it worth watching?
It is no secret that I have a slight obsession with Vikings and the Viking era in history. Ever since I stumbled across the insanely popular and successful television series ‘Vikings’, I have been positively hooked, and, I think, for good reason. Vikings, while a tad barbaric and uncouth, were rather remarkable people in terms … More Is ‘Vikings: Valhalla’ better than ‘Vikings’?
I have no shame in admitting I’m a sweaty bitch. I always have been, and likely always will be. Some folks sweat more than others, and I’m definitely in the sweats easily classification. When I was in high school, there were semesters in which I would have gym mid-day, followed by an English or math … More Read this if you sweat easily
I believe I first started getting acne when I was around the age of 13. I could be off by a few years; I didn’t exactly make note of when I first noticed a volcanic eruption occurring on my face, if you can imagine that. Fast-forward to now and I’m still dealing with acne. I’m … More Dealing with a stubborn zit? Read this
This past weekend, my bridesmaids and I partook in my bachelorette. I plan to dedicate an entirely separate post to share the glorious details of my bachelorette with all of you. Don’t you worry. To provide you with some context, one of the elements of my bachelorette was dining at Spencer’s at the Waterfront in … More Have you been to Spencer’s at the Waterfront?
I wouldn’t exactly say my love for Costco comes as a surprise after I mentioned it in my post a little while ago about Tiramisu. It may be more accurate to admit I have a somewhat toxic relationship with Costco, but honestly, I’m okay with it because of all of the happiness it brings me. … More Love pickles? Read this
For Christmas last year, my mom generously gifted me and Blaine an executive Costco membership to use once we are living in our home. Considering I eat as much as a rhinoceros, buying in bulk makes sense, so I was very happy to be gifted this. Blaine and I are (hopefully) going to be moving … More Run, don’t walk to get this dessert from Costco
Not too long ago, I had my bridal makeup trial, if you will, with the truly lovely gal who is doing my makeup, as well as the makeup for my bridal party, on the big day. She and I have become friends since we have gotten to know one another, and she’s flipping awesome in … More Looking for a miracle cream? Read this
Anyone who considers themselves to be a foodie is arguably familiar with The Mandarin. In case you’re unaware of what The Mandarin is, simply put, it is a majestic, incredibly diverse food buffet that everyone residing on planet Earth should have the privilege of experiencing. At least, I think so. And I’m not even a … More A round of applause for The Mandarin
I have no shame in admitting that I’m a bit of a perfume junkie; I always have been, and likely always will be. I am pleased to report that my perfume preferences and choices have improved dramatically in terms of quality over the years, and while I do still enjoy the odd body mist, I … More Read this to find your new summer scent
Last week, I met up with a dear friend of mine for dinner. We had a wonderful time, as per usual, and I noticed while sitting across from her at the table that her face makeup looked incredible. I could tell she had makeup on, but it was so beautifully subtle and natural, so I … More Looking for a tinted facial sunscreen? Read this
Similar to my post about tanning, I would like to claim this opportunity to profess that I am not someone who gets their eyelashes done frequently. Up until a couple of weeks ago, I had never had any kind of service performed on my eyelashes, and the reason I am now is, once again, as … More Lash extensions vs. lift and tints: is one better than the other?
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 not someone who frequently visits any type of salon, studio, or beauty-related business. I never have, and probably never will, simply because the world of aesthetics and all of its services have never really appealed to me. Working on a farm isn’t exactly a profession in which beauty and my appearance are my … More Here’s why you need to visit Blush Medical Aesthetics
I will be entirely transparent and admit that since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, I’ve been slacking with my makeup game. Prior to COVID hitting, I wore a full face of makeup just about every day. Fast forward to now and I find myself struggling to find the motivation to simply throw on some … More In need of a new setting powder? Read this
I’ve made mention of my love for horror movies numerous times here on my blog before, but I think it is important to specify that when I say horror, I’m referring to movies that truly scare the living shit out of me, not ones that depict an insane amount of gore. The term horror is … More Do yourself a favour and don’t watch the new ‘Texas Chainsaw Massacre’
I appreciate a solid comedy movie. When I say comedy, I’m referring to a series or film that has the ability to make me laugh aloud, and more than once. I can list on two hands the number of movies that are classified as comedies that truly make me chuckle, so I’m always willing to … More Have you seen ‘Tammy’?
I’ve made mention in a number of previous posts that I am a bit of a perfume junkie. I fully accept this component of my identity, and really, I figure there are far worse things to collect than perfume. I’ve got my favourites, but I’m always enthusiastic to take a whiff of new smells and … More Looking for a lightweight scent? Read this
As noted in Sunday’s post, this past weekend, my mom and dad celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary. It’s a big deal if you ask me, and so my sister and I wanted to do a little something for them on their special day. My mom has a love for flowers and plants, so getting her … More Have you used Bloomex?
Blaine and I, the other evening, once more found ourselves aimlessly scrolling through Netflix titles, trying to settle on a movie to watch. Netflix is great, don’t get me wrong, but sometimes I honestly feel as though it offers too much selection; you can spend two hours just trying to find something to watch. We … More This is why you need to watch ‘Indian Horse’
I realize I’m a little late to the party with this film review, but I figure it better late than never. To be honest, I kind of wanted to wait for all of the hoopla pertaining to the film ‘Don’t Look Up’ settle before I watched it, so that’s what I did. Blaine watched this … More Have you seen ‘Don’t Look Up’?
The opening of this post is similar to yesterday’s in terms of repetition when it comes to me making mention of things I enjoy and am passionate about. Yesterday’s post discussed my love for the television series Vikings, and today’s is, once again, discussing my opinion of a horror movie I recently watched. Blaine and … More ‘Ghosts of War’: a refreshing take on horror
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
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?
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
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’?
Blaine and I ventured out to SWEET bakery in Brantford this past weekend regarding our wedding cake. I’ve been to this bakery before, but it was quite a few years ago. When I was chatting with my sister and maid of honour about potential local bakeries to check out for our wedding, she recommended SWEET … More Craving something sweet?
