I think it is apparent that I’ve been on a bit of a history kick as of late in terms of the shows I have been watching. I recently finished Barbarians, and because I really enjoyed it, I thought I would start watching The Last Kingdom via Netflix as it, too, is a historical series. … More Have you seen ‘The Last Kingdom’?
On November 13, a little bit of humanity was restored when AC/DC released their newest album titled Power Up. Being their 17th studio album and their 16th international album, there has been a lot of anticipation for this musical masterpiece to become available, especially considering they haven’t produced an album since 2014. Featuring the combined … More Praise for AC/DC’s ‘Power Up’
When I caught wind a little while ago of a second instalment in The Haunting of Hill House saga, you bet your behind I was excited. I really enjoyed Hill House and would honestly consider it the best horror television series I’ve seen thus far, so my expectations for Bly Manor were pretty high. I’ll … More Is ‘The Haunting of Bly Manor’ worth the watch?
As of late, I would argue that the concept of ‘farm to table’ meals has gained tremendous popularity. Perhaps this stems from a desire from the general public to have a better understanding of how and where food is produced and prepared, and if so, I think an increase in this meal concept is a … More Looking for a unique dinner experience?

I can’t really say I’m someone who consumes a lot of protein bars. They’ve never really been of significant interest to me, and considering a lot of us eat them for breakfast and I prefer a warm meal when I wake up, I just haven’t given them a whole lot of thought. My mom brought … More Looking for a clean protein bar? Try RXBAR’s
Ratched made its Netflix debut recently, and because I’m a curious individual, I wanted to give it a watch. I wasn’t really sure what to expect going into the pilot episode other than I knew the show focused on a female nurse named Mildred Ratched, and because Sarah Paulson plays the lead and I enjoy … More Have you seen ‘Ratched’?
I apologize if it seems as though I’m giving an awful lot of television series/film reviews as of late, but I ask you to hang in for one more. I’ve been watching some interesting things lately, and I figure someone on the internet will appreciate my thoughts and opinions towards them. I hope so, anyway. … More Have you seen ‘Girls Incarcerated’?
Artificial intelligence-based technology has somewhat inundated our lives since products like Alexa and Google Home have been released. For many of us, these devices are integral components of daily life, while for others they remain a foreign and arguably somewhat intimidating concept. When these types of products first hit the market, I recall being intrigued … More Thinking about purchasing a Google Nest? Read this
I’ve made mention of my love for fragrance here on my blog before, and shockingly enough, it’s time to revisit the topic.

Whether it be candles, room and/or body sprays, or perfume, if I find … More Have you ordered from Charmed Aroma?
This summer here in Ontario has been a scorcher. Excessively high temperatures with an insignificant amount of rain has caused a lot of vegetation to dry up and unfortunately die, and the suns rays seem to be getting hotter and hotter every year. We’re aware of the damage that can occur to our skin as … More Dry, summer hair? Try this hair mask
Mexican cuisine is hands down one of my favourite types of food to eat. My family and I have always loved Mexican dishes, a preference which has likely been influenced by our migrant workers and their choosing to share some of their phenomenal creations with us, and whenever we have the chance to have this … More Craving Mexican?

Reality television is something I have a love-hate relationship with. As much as I regret to admit I watch it from time to time considering it’s pretty ridiculous and dramatic, I also find it to be pretty entertaining, and it serves as a great option of mindless television for anyone who is need of turning … More Have you seen Selling Sunset?
Up until a few years ago, I wasn’t ever really into crime-based shows. They used to scare me when I was young, and because of my fear of them I distanced myself from anything crime-related for quite a while. When I was in university I started to develop an interest in them, though, and now, … More Have you seen Unsolved Mysteries?
Up until recently, I’ve never been much of a drinker. That isn’t to say I’m consuming copious amounts of alcohol now (just to clarify), but lately, I’ve been enjoying the odd drink in the evening while I sit and relax on our back porch. I was probably in my early twenties when I started drinking … More Savouring summer with White Claw

I feel like action movies have a bit of a poor reputation in terms of the storyline they offer. Action movies can, on occasion, be so jam-packed with violence and explosions that they overshadow any evidence of human emotion, and I believe this is a major turn off for a lot of people. I follow … More Extraction: more than an action movie
Blaine is an avid action film lover. I enjoy action movies myself as well, but perhaps not to the same extent he does.

Dry hair has always been an issue for me. I’m willing to experiment with new products in an attempt to designate one that really works for me and my hair, but it can be frustrating to find a winner. I mentioned in a post a while ago that I was using Aveeno’s Almond Oil Blend … More Dry hair? Try this shampoo and hair mask duo
I’ve seen my fair share of fighting movies in my day, and I’ve found most of them to be extremely well done. Often times, fighting movies incorporate an intensely emotional or dramatic theme into their plots, allowing the film to take on different genres and appeal to a wider audience in the process. A few … More Have you seen Warrior?
I can recall making a mental note to watch I, Tonya when I first saw trailers for it quite a while ago. To be honest, the movie entirely slipped my mind until I came across it via Netflix not too long ago, and Blaine and I decided to give it a watch. While I certainly … More I, Tonya: an inside look at the cutthroat figure skating industry
A few nights ago, Blaine and I decided to watch Mine 9 via Netflix. The trailer that played for it seemed interesting, and because neither of us is overly familiar with mining, we decided to give it a watch. Mine 9 is based on true events and depicts the story of nine coal miners working in … More Mine 9: a glance into the world of coal mining
If you’re a horror movie fan in the slightest, there is a good chance you’re familiar with or have heard of Rosemary’s Baby. Despite being released in 1968, the authenticity of this horror flick still stands today, and it is recognized by many as one of the most iconic horror movies of all time. Rosemary’s Baby is … More Have you seen Rosemary’s Baby?
The other evening I decided to hunker down and watch Don’t Breathe via Netflix. The movie was under Netflix’s Critically Acclaimed Movies category, and since I often am disappointed by the platform’s selection of horror flicks, I was hoping this one would be good. Thankfully, this time I was not disappointed. Don’t Breathe is a “2016 American horror thriller film produced … More Have you seen Don’t Breathe?
I first heard about scalp massagers a while ago, and to be honest, I sort of thought they were a gimmick. I failed to see the purpose of a device that claimed to massage your head when our fingers could achieve the same outcome, and so I wrote the idea off for quite some time. … More Have you used a shampoo scalp massager?
I have a soft spot for modern-day Westerns. I enjoy the odd older Western from time to time, and I can certainly appreciate them for being the foundation of the Western genre, but personally, contemporary versions of the category are my preference. O the topic of Westerns, the other night I watched The Bygone via Netflix. The … More This is why you need to watch The Bygone
When it comes to wine, I’m certainly more of a fan of whites than I am reds. I’ve tried to sophisticate my palate enough to appreciate the taste of red wine, but I find it tastes like battery acid, so I’m content drinking whites for now. My mom had a bottle of Bodacious’ Moscato that … More Looking for a fresh, tasty Moscato? Try Bodacious’
When I watched the trailer for Mark of the Devil via Netflix the other night, I was pretty intrigued. This film appeared to have a lot of elements I tend to appreciate in the horror film realm, and the concept seemed terrifying, so naturally, I tuned in to watch it. I sincerely wish I hadn’t. Mark of … More Do yourself a favour and don’t watch Mark of the Devil
I can recall watching the trailer for The Platform a few months ago via Facebook.

As I’ve mentioned before, I’m always trying new things, within reason, when it comes to my skin.

I have been using a … More Here’s a face cleanser to get you and your skin feeling fresh for Spring
Ensuring my makeup brushes are squeaky clean is a concept I never used to give a whole lot of thought to.
