Have you seen ‘John Q’?

When Blaine and I were scrolling through Netflix on the weekend, trying to find something to watch, Blaine just about jumped off the couch in excitement when he saw that ‘John Q’ was recently added. I was a little clueless as to why Blaine was so thrilled to see this title, and when I informed … More Have you seen ‘John Q’?

Do yourself a favour and watch ‘You People’

I will begin this post by addressing the fact that while it is a recent release, thus far, the film ‘You People,’ directed by Kenya Barris and Jonah Hill, has earned some ratings that are absolute shit. Just about every Google search result depicts an onslaught of foul words and critiques towards this film, and … More Do yourself a favour and watch ‘You People’

Read this if you’re a fan of Vietnamese spring rolls

When my Oma and Opa were still here with us Earth-side, towards the end of their lives, they found themselves living in Hamilton. They lived in a retirement home, and once a week, my mom would head to the Hammer to visit with them, run any errands then required, etc. I was in university during … More Read this if you’re a fan of Vietnamese spring rolls

Should you do yoga?

One of my dearest friends recently set out on a lifelong goal of becoming a certified yoga instructor. She travelled to Costa Rica to do so and completed an intensive and thorough course to earn her yoga teaching credentials, and in chatting with her about it and everything the course entailed, I’ve come to not … More Should you do yoga?

How ‘bear’ you?

Please excuse my sad attempt at a quirky pun for the title of today’s post. Bear puns aren’t exactly the most common thing, so it was a little tricky trying to make a play on words about these majestic beasts. Bears scare the absolute shit out of me, and they always have. I’ve been scared … More How ‘bear’ you?

Here’s why you need to get yourself a Lindo Eco Clean Face Brush

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

Know your brows

The relationship between myself and my eyebrows is an extensive one, with an interesting history. I have quite literally done just about everything to my eyebrows over the course of the years; I’ve overplucked them, under plucked them, failed miserably in attempting to shape them, accidentally removed half of one, filled them in too heavily, … More Know your brows

Here’s why you should bless your hair with some Morroccanoil Treatment

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

Do yourself a favour and don’t watch ‘Those Who Wish Me Dead’

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’

Why are we fat-shaming people trying to lose weight?

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?

Examining the concept of elder abuse

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

Welcome, 2023

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

Here’s how hard water shampoo and conditioner treat your hair

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
