It’s no secret to anyone who follows my blog that I am an avid watcher of all things scary. Horror, thriller, the whole shebang.

I am willing to bet that just about all of us, at some point or another, have seen or heard about blackhead strips.

Blackheads … More Are blackhead strips worth the money?

This past weekend, Blaine and I embarked on a much-needed getaway. In the seven years we have been together, not once have we gone on a mini-getaway, and as much as we would have liked to have done this sooner or even more often, we’re both a wee bit busy. I booked a one-night stay … More Have you heard of The Halfway Niagara?
Within the past couple of years or so, my knowledge, appreciation, and respect for cannabis has exponentially increased.

Any type of media production associated with serial killers is one that seems to snag my attention. Like my dad said to me the other day, it is possible I should have studied criminology in post-secondary school since I find it so enthralling, but alas, here I am with an English degree. On the topic … More Have you watched Netflix’s ‘Night Stalker’?
For anyone who hasn’t made use of a vegetable powder, it is understandable why the purpose of it may be questioned. Why take vegetables in a powder form when you can just eat them as is? While this is an absolutely valid question, for people like myself who aren’t the biggest fan of veggies but … More These are 2020’s best vegetable powders
I doubt the likeliness of coming across anyone who isn’t a fan of massages.

I know, I know. This movie certainly isn’t a new release; it actually premiered in 2007, but I haven’t gotten around to watching it until now. Perhaps you could say I’ve been allowing my anticipation to build. Like, really build. Anyways, because I just recently viewed this masterpiece, I wanted to give a review of … More Film review: No Country for Old Men
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’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.

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.

Mexican cuisine is hands down one of my favourite types of food to eat.
