Here’s how to spend more time with your parents

For many of us young adults, our parents are becoming older. Perhaps they’re nearing their fifties or sixties, or maybe they’re older still. Regardless of their exact age, for many of my friends close to my own age, our parents are ageing, and this natural occurrence can cause us a bit of distress once we … More Here’s how to spend more time with your parents

Fed up with the weather? Think about the farmers

If you’re a resident of Ontario, chances are you’re probably wondering what in the heck it is that Mother Nature is all in a dither over. I shouldn’t say Ontario specifically. The weather is wonky all across the country, and worldwide. From what I’ve gathered, most of us are rather fed up with the so-called … More Fed up with the weather? Think about the farmers

Looking for a unique twist on granola? Check out Bakery on Main

Most of us have tried granola at some point on our lives. My question, though, is whether or not the granola we’ve tried is actually tasty. I’ve had several variations of granola, however, I’ve struggled finding one that really gets me going. They’re all pretty similar, typically consisting of nuts, raisins, and granola itself. Then … More Looking for a unique twist on granola? Check out Bakery on Main

The power of perspective

Sometimes in life, we’re presented with unfortunate circumstances. And, as inconvenient as these circumstances may be, life is unpredictable, making these situations inevitable. When dealing with a challenging scenario, it can be difficult to consider things from an alternate perspective.

Here’s why you need to try Cottage Springs’ vodka sodas

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

Three signs a friendship isn’t worth your effort anymore

I’ve been reflecting on some of my friendships as of late, and doing so has really encouraged me to seriously contemplate the value of these relationships I’ve formed with others. I believe that sometimes we’re unable to see the harsh reality of a deteriorating friendship because we’re trying so desperately to save it. But, sometimes, … More Three signs a friendship isn’t worth your effort anymore

Is less more when it comes to washing your hair?

Hair hygiene is something we’re taught from a young age. It is something that has become a repetitive practice in our lives, something that doesn’t demand much thought. Because of the repetitive nature of hair hygiene, we fail to ever think twice about it. For the most part, anyways. But, I started to give it … More Is less more when it comes to washing your hair?

If you’re a horror fan, you need to watch The Perfection

When first heard about the movie The Perfection via my Facebook timeline, I knew it was one I was going to have to see. Why, you may ask? When the release of a horror flick is met with statements that people became physically ill watching it, you can bet it intrigued me. Hey, I never … More If you’re a horror fan, you need to watch The Perfection

Product review: L’Oréal Paris Sublime Bronze Tinted Self-Tanning Luminous Bronzer

Summertime, for me, is peak tan season. By tan, I’m referring to the tan I receive when I’m outside working on the farm. Not from a tanning bed or anything like that. Since beginning my job at Bonnieheath, I’m spending far more time indoors than I normally do in the warmer weather. And, as a … More Product review: L’Oréal Paris Sublime Bronze Tinted Self-Tanning Luminous Bronzer

Summer date ideas

Dating, as fun as it can be, can be somewhat problematic in terms of activity ideas. It’s far easier to simply stay in for the night with some snacks and Netflix as opposed to planning out a fun-filled day, so often times we get somewhat lazy and settle for the simpler option. As great as … More Summer date ideas
