Have you been to Casa Mia Ristorante and Bar in Niagara?

This past weekend, my family and I ventured down to Niagara, my old stomping grounds, for my cousin’s wedding.

Here’s why you need to visit Blush Medical Aesthetics

I am not someone who frequently visits any type of salon, studio, or beauty-related business.

This is why you need to watch ‘Indian Horse’

Blaine and I, the other evening, once more found ourselves aimlessly scrolling through Netflix titles, trying to settle on a movie to watch.

Forget grass; here’s why your lawn should be covered in moss

Have you tried Storyteller Beverage Company’s Bees Knees?

Don’t get me wrong, I still have a few drinks from time … More Have you tried Storyteller Beverage Company’s Bees Knees?

Here’s why having good friends in your 20s is so important

Ahhhh, friendship. A conceptual relationship that can offer so much positivity, but also, unfortunately, negativity, depending on the quality of the bond. Friendship, while incredibly important to me in my own life, is something I haven’t had tremendous luck with.
