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’
When it came time to start preparing dinner a few nights ago, I found myself looking at two raw, skinless chicken breasts, wondering what in the fuck I was going to do with them in terms of how to serve them. Eventually, I just started grabbing random shit from my fridge and cupboards and in … More Here’s your next weeknight dinner
There is a strong chance you’re heard the term fat-shaming before. In simple words, it essentially involves making someone overweight feel like a complete piece of shit because of their size, invalidating their own emotions and the fact that they’re a human being in the process. Socially, we have been conditioned to perceive overweight people … More Why are we fat-shaming people trying to lose weight?
Eder abuse, for anyone unfamiliar with the term, is rather adequately explained within its own title – directing abusive behaviour towards an elderly person, whether it be mental, physical or emotional, is considered elder abuse. I would argue that when the majority of us contemplate what is considered to be elder abuse, we picture blatant, … More Examining the concept of elder abuse
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’?
Happy, happy new year, my friends. I hope you were all able to participate in whatever your festivity preference for ringing in the new year is, and I wish you all health, love and happiness in 2023 and beyond. I thought it might be fun to do a 2022 recap – not only for myself, … More Welcome, 2023
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
Just about every year during the holiday season, my sister ends up preparing at least one meal. My sister’s cooking abilities are God-given, if you ask me, and I have yet to consume anything she has made that fails to be anything but truly delicious. I genuinely mean that. One of the many tremendous dishes … More Here’s how to make your own pigs in a blanket
To answer my own question, for Blaine and me, it was a busy holiday season this year. We went to my grandmother’s house with my aunt and cousins, my parents and my sister on Christmas Eve; on Christmas Day Blaine and I went to my parents to open gifts with my sister and we had … More How was your Christmas?
When I first composed the title for this post, I thought it was a decent but brief little spurt of alliteration, but upon further thought, I realize some folks may read it and consider it a little bit odd. Allow me to clarify; my use of the term ‘lovin’ in my title is purely affectionate … More Lovin’ on lynxes some more
I figure with my past few animal posts, I may as well continue forward in this animal series or whatever you want to call it. My sister actually told me she has been enjoying the posts discussing different animals as of late, and while she may be just a wee bit biased regarding my blog … More Let’s get some love for lynxes
I’m not someone who particularly enjoys going back on my word, and when hippos are the subject matter, there is absolutely no exception to the rule. In yesterday’s post, I said today’s would also discuss hippos and share some interesting facts affiliated with them, and here we are. Again, this information comes from http://www.natgeokids.com. “6) Despite … More Let’s hear it for hippos, again
Allow me to begin this post by stating that while hippos are incredibly aggressive and dangerous animals, I have this false hope that this simply isn’t the case because they’re just too darn cute. I realize if I ever wound up face-to-face with a hippo, I would arguably have a change of heart. Until that … More Let’s hear it for hippos
I’ve always held firm to the idea that if animals had the ability to speak, life itself would be a hell of a lot easier. Sure, animals communicate with us in their own way, but I’m talking literal syntax and semantics; can you imagine if animals could carry out an entire verbal conversation with us? … More Understanding animals
A couple of nights ago, Blaine and I sat down together to watch something via Netflix. As per usual, we scrolled aimlessly through quite a few titles, trying to determine what to watch, when all of a sudden, Blaine turned to me and asked me if I was familiar with Jonah Hill’s newest movie, to … More Have you seen ‘Stutz’?
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
It’s only fair to write a post regarding giraffes considering how Blaine inspired my recent posts discussing zebras. When Blaine recommended writing about zebras, our friend, Nic, was with us. He wholeheartedly supported the idea of dedicating a few posts to the topic of zebras, and he, like Blaine, also had a suggestion – giraffes. … More Let’s talk about giraffes
When my family and I visited Rome, Italy, a few years back, my dad stumbled across a particular pasta dish that he raved about for years, long after we had left Rome. He had the opportunity to sample some authentic Italian carbonara, and he’s been hooked ever since, understandably. Granted, we aren’t in Rome anymore, … More Here’s how to make some delicious Italian carbonara
I am a woman of my word, and as I mentioned in yesterday’s post, today’s topic is a continuation of intriguing facts about zebras. These beasts of worthy of two posts, in my opinion, and again, this information comes from http://www.natgeokids.com. “6) Zebras are constantly on the move for fresh grass to eat and water to … More Let’s chat about zebras (part two)
I really wasn’t sure what I was going to write about for today’s post. I was contemplating for some time and then I figured I would ask Blaine as he often comes up with some pretty interesting ideas. Upon asking Blaine for some blog topic inspiration, he suggested zebras, and here we are. His specific … More Let’s chat about zebras
I try my best to limit myself and my tastebuds when I go grocery shopping. I really do. I make a list beforehand, try my best to avoid going on an empty stomach, and try to find the best deals and prices possible to save some coin. I still, however, buy myself some treats from … More Here’s how to make some cinnamon coffee muffins
I figured I’m doing all of you a bit of a disservice by sharing the arm component of my workout routine in yesterday’s post and stopping there. I’m no gatekeeper, and so I deemed it only fair to share the entirety of my workout routine with all of you, including the leg, butt and ab … More How about legs and abs?
I have a self-created workout routine that I’ve been doing daily for a number of years now. I first came up with the routine when I was in recovery from an eating disorder; I had to eliminate cardio from my workout routine as it was a trigger for me, so I figured I should probably … More Looking for a new arm workout?

Ferrets are, and always have been, one of my favourite critters in existence. When I was younger, I desperately wanted to own one as a pet, and I seriously looked into the matter, you know, with my 14-year-old intelligence and all. Upon reading up on ferrets and what they require if they’re a pet, I … More Here are some facts about ferrets
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’?
On Saturday evening, my mom came over to my and Blaine’s place to have dinner with us. My sister and dad weren’t home for the evening, so rather than her eating alone, it makes sense for her to come over to where we are seeing as we are quite close. Blaine’s been pretty sick for … More Make this chicken for dinner tonight
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
This past Wednesday was not a good one for my family and me. It was my dad’s 65th birthday, which is a milestone and monumental birthday absolutely worth celebrating, however, our celebrations were quickly sidetracked after an incident occurred in the afternoon. I was in the midst of a tutoring session with a client when … More Thank you, vets and vet techs
