The musical genre known as rap is one that really gets me going, but I should probably stipulate I have a handful of artists I listen to, and none of them are new to the game. Eminem, N.W.A., The Notorious B.I.G., Snoop and 50 Cent are my favourites, and their work is the best in … More Have you seen ‘Get Rich or Die Tryin’?
My family and I reside in Brant County, and where we are situated is a couple of kilometres away from Six Nations of the Grand River, a First Nations Reserve. We’re about ten minutes out from the West end of Brantford, which is where my family and I typically venture whenever we need groceries. I … More Have you been to Townline Variety Gas & Groceries – Clover Farm?
This past weekend, my family and I ventured down to Niagara, my old stomping grounds, for my cousin’s wedding. I say stomping grounds not because I ever officially lived in Niagara, but because I did five years of schooling in the region and lived in student housing. My sister and I are bridesmaids for my … More Have you been to Casa Mia Ristorante and Bar in Niagara?
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?

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
Allow me to state that yes, I am entirely aware that Pacific Rim is not in any way, shape or form a recent movie, and yes, I am aware that I am incredibly delayed in watching it. Now that we’ve gotten those discrepancies out of the way, let’s continue. I should probably mention that I’m … More Have you seen ‘Pacific Rim’?
Even if you haven’t seen a single episode of The Office, there is a strong chance you’ve heard of the show, and, really, for good reason. It was hugely successful throughout the duration of its nine seasons, and its success continues to reign long after the show itself concluded. In case you’re unfamiliar with the … More A moment of appreciation for The Office
Earlier this week, I met up with a friend of mine to go for dinner. We originally wanted to have sushi, but after calling two locations in Brantford and not having much luck, we figured we were going to have to get a rain check on the sushi and settle for something else in the … More If you like sushi, read this
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?
I had heard about Jeffrey Dahmer prior to watching Netflix’s new release, ‘Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story’, but I didn’t necessarily understand the scope of his crimes and the atrocious acts he committed until I tuned into the series. I knew he was an American serial killer, but that was about it, and the more … More Have you seen Netflix’s ‘Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story’?
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
I have a love/hate relationship with my hair. As I’ve stated several times here on my blog before, as much as I enjoy and appreciate having long locks, at times I am significantly tempted to grab my husband’s clippers and shave it off. When I’m feeling the urge to buzz it, it’s usually because I’ve … More Looking for an all-around beneficial hair product? Check this out
When I was still living with my mom and dad, I was fortunate and privileged in the sense that my mom took care of our entire family’s laundry. Sure, I helped out with it occasionally, but my mom takes full credit for doing laundry for a large component of my life. My mom is rather … More Are Gain Fireworks worth trying?
While Blaine and I have just about all the furntiture we require in our home, with the exception of one or two things, our walls are looking a little barren seeing as we are seriously lacking in the art department. We have a few things hung at this point, and we will definitely display some … More Looking for some unique art for your home? Read this
I sincerely apologize to any of my readers who don’t watch Stranger Things when I compose posts about the show. I was skeptical of its premise when it first started gaining popularity, and trust me when I say I resisted hopping on the bandwagon for quite an extended period of time. As you likely know … More Stranger Things – yet another update
It’s a wee bit ironic that I’m writing this post while not being able to taste anything courtesy of COVID. As miserable as the main physical symptoms of COVID are, I honestly think not being able to taste or smell anything has been the worst symptom yet, arguably because it keeps prolonging itself and food … More Here’s how to make some wicked bruschetta
As mentioned in yesterday’s post, my mom and I recently made a trip to Costco. I picked up some new goodies as well as some I’ve been getting from Costco for a while, one such item being the cookies that they bake in-store. Costco actually has a rather impressive selection of baked goods. If I’m … More Costco cookies: yes or no?
My mom and I ventured out to Costco a few days ago for a long overdue visit. She and I had been trying to determine a day to go to stock up on some goodies that suited the both of us, but things tend to get a little squirrely scheduling-wise when we are in the … More Run, don’t walk to grab this from Costco
I’ve never really been one to wear shoes indoors. I don’t have anything against folks who do wear shoes inside their home, but because I grew up in an impeccably clean home, I simply didn’t need to don shoes. Ya know? That isn’t to say if you wear shoes inside that your house isn’t clean. … More Looking for some comfy slides? Read this
While brainstorming a topic for today’s blog post, I came to the realization that I haven’t written much about any of the vendors and/or services Blaine and I used for our wedding. Each and every single vendor we went with for our wedding were truly incredible, one such vendor being our florist, who goes by … More Looking for a florist? Read this
I didn’t think I would ever get to a point in my life in which I’m writing blog posts about dish soap, but here we are. I’ve mentioned how much of a struggle it can be to come up with ideas for blog posts every day, so when I was wracking my brains, trying to … More Is Dawn Ultra Platinum Powerwash Dish Spray worth buying?
A few nights ago, Blaine and I decided to watch ‘The Gray Man’ via Netflix. I would like to take full credit for recommending this particular film to Blaine; he hadn’t heard anything about it, but once I told him I had heard plenty of good things, we decided to give it a go. ‘The … More Have you seen ‘The Gray Man’?
A few nights ago, before we snuggled up in bed, Blaine and I were browsing through Netflix titles, once again fighting the endless battle of determining what to watch. We were having some difficulty in choosing something, until Blaine scrolled past a movie called ‘Hustle’ which I had read and heard quite positive things about. … More Have you seen ‘Hustle’?
In lieu of yesterday’s post, one might think I’m on a bit of a cleaning kick as of late. For anyone thinking this, you’re absolutely right. Now that Blaine and I are living in our own space, I’m having to do a significant amount more cleaning than I did when I was still living with … More Swiffer Wet Jet: hit or miss?
I’ll apologize in advance for stating this well-known fact to any of my readers by now, but it is relevant to the subject matter of this post; Blaine and I have been living in our home for almost two weeks now, and it has been interesting, to say the least.

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.
