I am not someone who supports the idea of technological advancements costing actual living people jobs. I think it’s rather shitty, as do a lot of people, and with the way things are going, I imagine we will see even more jobs lost to automation in the near future. The one and only exception I … More Struggling to keep your floors clean? Read this
Prior to living with my husband, I’ve never given much thought to who might require the services of a reflective surface while showering. As a woman, the regions of my body that require hair removal aren’t anywhere close to my face, therefore I’m not someone who needs a mirror in the shower as I’m not … More As it turns out, shower mirrors are great gadgets
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
If I had to guess, I would wager that between myself and my family, we, collectively over the span of a few years, have probably gone through half-a-dozen Keurig machines. I won’t lie to you; considering my family’s track record with these devices, I really didn’t have a whole lot of faith in them. I … More What’s your go-to Keurig pod?
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
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
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
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
Allow me to begin this post by stating the somewhat obvious – the fact I am writing a post about cat dandruff and how to combat it isn’t necessarily a situation that is overly applicable to everyone, so rather than belittling me because I care about my cats’ health and making me feel like an … More Does your cat have dandruff? Read this
Anyone who knows me personally knows I rarely leave the house without my obnoxiously large water bottle. I get chirped quite frequently by my family and friends for going out in public with a literal water jug, but I have no shame and couldn’t care less if people think I have gills or some shit … More On the hunt for a reusable water bottle? Look no further
If you’ve been following my blog to any extent since I started it a few years back, you’re probably aware that I have acne, as I discuss acne-related products every now and then based on my own experiences with them. If you’re new to my blog, welcome, and allow me to inform you that I … More Looking for an effective spot treatment? Read this
I’ve had my eyes on an air fryer ever since Blaine and I moved into our home about four months ago. I figured I could ask for one for Christmas, or wait until one comes on sale, and to be honest, I forgot about getting one for a little while. That is, until I saw … More Yes, you really do need an air fryer
I’m not someone who uses face masks to the extent I arguably should. Masks are great for your skin for a wide variety of reasons, and different masks offer different benefits. Generally speaking, any time I do happen to make use of a face mask, it’s for my acne, acne scars and pigmentation, so I … More Looking for a new face mask? Read this
One of the last times I made a trip to Costco, I came across a product in their snack section that caught my interest. I spotted some fruit bars, and because so many of these types of items contain a lot more than you’re anticipating (like excess sugar), I always check out the ingredients. I … More Looking for a healthy snack? Read this
Fall has certainly made its presence known here in Ontario as of late. Once the official first day of Autumn arrived, the temperature dropped dramatically, and it hasn’t really come back up into what one may consider warm temperatures. Now that fall is upon us and winter is coming (said in John Snow’s voice), there … More Dry hair? Read this
Quite a few years ago, I was blessed to come across an item in the supermarket known as Tajín. If I remember correctly, I picked this up while doing some grocery shopping while I was in university, and I fell head-over-heels in love with the stuff. Devastatingly, I haven’t been able to spot this glorious … More Looking to flavour your food with something new? Read this
I have a love/hate relationship with my hair. As I’ve stated several times here on my blog before, as much as I enjoy and appreciate having long locks, at times I am significantly tempted to grab my husband’s clippers and shave it off. When I’m feeling the urge to buzz it, it’s usually because I’ve … More Looking for an all-around beneficial hair product? Check this out
When I was still living with my mom and dad, I was fortunate and privileged in the sense that my mom took care of our entire family’s laundry. Sure, I helped out with it occasionally, but my mom takes full credit for doing laundry for a large component of my life. My mom is rather … More Are Gain Fireworks worth trying?
While Blaine and I have just about all the furntiture we require in our home, with the exception of one or two things, our walls are looking a little barren seeing as we are seriously lacking in the art department. We have a few things hung at this point, and we will definitely display some … More Looking for some unique art for your home? Read this
As mentioned in yesterday’s post, my mom and I recently made a trip to Costco. I picked up some new goodies as well as some I’ve been getting from Costco for a while, one such item being the cookies that they bake in-store. Costco actually has a rather impressive selection of baked goods. If I’m … More Costco cookies: yes or no?
My mom and I ventured out to Costco a few days ago for a long overdue visit. She and I had been trying to determine a day to go to stock up on some goodies that suited the both of us, but things tend to get a little squirrely scheduling-wise when we are in the … More Run, don’t walk to grab this from Costco
I’ve never really been one to wear shoes indoors. I don’t have anything against folks who do wear shoes inside their home, but because I grew up in an impeccably clean home, I simply didn’t need to don shoes. Ya know? That isn’t to say if you wear shoes inside that your house isn’t clean. … More Looking for some comfy slides? Read this
I didn’t think I would ever get to a point in my life in which I’m writing blog posts about dish soap, but here we are. I’ve mentioned how much of a struggle it can be to come up with ideas for blog posts every day, so when I was wracking my brains, trying to … More Is Dawn Ultra Platinum Powerwash Dish Spray worth buying?
In lieu of yesterday’s post, one might think I’m on a bit of a cleaning kick as of late. For anyone thinking this, you’re absolutely right. Now that Blaine and I are living in our own space, I’m having to do a significant amount more cleaning than I did when I was still living with … More Swiffer Wet Jet: hit or miss?
I’ll apologize in advance for stating this well-known fact to any of my readers by now, but it is relevant to the subject matter of this post; Blaine and I have been living in our home for almost two weeks now, and it has been interesting, to say the least. I’m not going to be … More Are Roomba vacuums worth the money?
I have no shame in admitting I’m a sweaty bitch. I always have been, and likely always will be. Some folks sweat more than others, and I’m definitely in the sweats easily classification. When I was in high school, there were semesters in which I would have gym mid-day, followed by an English or math … More Read this if you sweat easily
I wouldn’t exactly say my love for Costco comes as a surprise after I mentioned it in my post a little while ago about Tiramisu. It may be more accurate to admit I have a somewhat toxic relationship with Costco, but honestly, I’m okay with it because of all of the happiness it brings me. … More Love pickles? Read this
For Christmas last year, my mom generously gifted me and Blaine an executive Costco membership to use once we are living in our home. Considering I eat as much as a rhinoceros, buying in bulk makes sense, so I was very happy to be gifted this. Blaine and I are (hopefully) going to be moving … More Run, don’t walk to get this dessert from Costco
Not too long ago, I had my bridal makeup trial, if you will, with the truly lovely gal who is doing my makeup, as well as the makeup for my bridal party, on the big day. She and I have become friends since we have gotten to know one another, and she’s flipping awesome in … More Looking for a miracle cream? Read this
I firmly believe anyone who claims they don’t like ice cream is a damn liar. That may sound harsh, but it’s the truth. Even if you’re lactose intolerant, there’s always a reason to eat ice cream. It’s worth the gas, bloating and diarrhea, if you ask me, so unless you have a deathly allergy, don’t … More Is Tim Horton’s Ice Cream worth buying?
