This past weekend, my fiancé and I attended a wedding for good friends of ours. The groom has been one of Blaine’s best friends since they were kiddos, and his now wife has also become a good friend of ours over the past few years. Blaine was a groomsman in this wedding (as he is … More The beauty of being yourself, unapologetically
I’m not what you would call a big drinker when it comes to alcohol. I never have been, and likely never will, solely because I was raised by two parents who don’t drink terribly often, and an older sister who doesn’t drink period. Don’t get me wrong, I still have a few drinks from time … More Have you tried Storyteller Beverage Company’s Bees Knees?
Ahhhh, hangovers. As miserable as they are, they’re often an indication of a fun-filled evening that occurred prior to us waking up with a pounding head, which, in a way, is kind of a positive. What isn’t so positive is how awful they can make us feel, and further, how long they can linger and … More Could a vegetable be the cure for hangovers?
Bad habits are easy enough to unconsciously undertake. Small, irregular behaviours, in time, become more prominent and repetitive, unfortunately resulting in, often times, a habit we wish we hadn’t picked up. Poor habits are understandably something all of us have some experience with, and I would wager that more of us dabbled in shitty habits … More Did 2020 prompt you to start a bad habit?

And, if you’re questioning the validity of this statement, an article from Healthline provides some facts … More Can drinking wine be healthy?
Sugary alcoholic drinks have never been my thing. I find them to be excessively sweet (almost like you can feel cavities forming as you sip on them), and honestly, wine and beer have always been my preference. That is, wine and beer were my preference until I discovered Cottage Springs vodka sodas. Now my top … More Here’s why you need to try Cottage Springs’ vodka sodas
Wine is something I’ve never really had much luck with. When I became of drinking age, I pretty well stuck with beer, and the odd cooler. Enter my gluten intolerance a few years later, and my beer drinking days came to an end relatively quickly. Coolers are fine for me to continue drinking, but often … More Don’t whine about wine
I don’t drink alcohol very often. It’s never been something of significant interest to me, therefore I tend to stay away from it most of the time. That being said, the odd time I have experienced a hangover in my life is enough reasoning for me to write this blog post, because they can be … More International hangover cures
An article from the Medical Press reports that quitting junk food can result in similar withdrawal symptoms that occur when one quits an addiction, specifically in the first week of quitting. The University of Michigan recently did a study that is likely the first to examine withdrawal symptoms of people when they refrain from consuming … More Research shows quitting junk food is as hard as quitting an addiction
