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 wouldn’t say I’ve been shy in expressing and sharing my love for all things Norse with you, my lovely readers. I find the Viking period of history, as well as Vikings themselves to be astoundingly admirable people in what they accomplished in their time on this earth, and I believe their ingenuity and warrior/farmer … More Vikings: Valhalla – season two shenanigans
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 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?
As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, my mom, sister and I spent an afternoon in Cambridge on the weekend to do a little bit of shopping. After our shopping came to a conclusion, we were trying to figure out where to go for dinner. My sister did a quick Google search to see what restaurants … More Have you been to The Black Badger in Cambridge?
If you’re a PC fan, allow me to start this post off by warning you that you’re probably going to want to move your cursor toward the upper left corner of your screen and hit the red button with the ‘x’ on it. Then again, I’m not entirely certain that’s the location of the ‘exit’ … More Let’s hear it for the MacBook Air
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?
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
A couple of nights ago, Blaine, in typical fashion, selected something for us to watch via Netflix. I’m pretty sure I was in the process of writing a blog while he was trying to pick something to watch, which is probably why I didn’t think much of a movie he ended up choosing called Those … More Do yourself a favour and don’t watch ‘Those Who Wish Me Dead’
Blaine and I recently once again found ourselves on the Netflix homepage, trying to determine what to watch. I wanted to watch The Walking Dead but Blaine wasn’t in the mood, so naturally, we ended up watching what he wanted to. I really can’t overly complain this time because he did, at least, pick a … More Have you seen ‘Glass Onion’?
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
Please allow me to begin by acknowledging that the television series ‘The Walking Dead’ is by no means a new show. It’s been around for a while now, and actually, the tenth and final season recently wrapped up. I was certainly familiar with the show and its premise, but I never ended up watching an … More Are you a fan of ‘The Walking Dead’?
Many moons ago, I got my first off-farm job working at Pita Pit in West Brantford. I say off-farm job because my parents’ rule when my sister and I were younger was that if we wanted to work full-time on the farm, that was fine and dandy, but not without getting a job off the … More Have you been to BarBurrito in West Brantford?
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
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.

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’?
