I wouldn’t say I’ve been shy in expressing and sharing my love for all things Norse with you, my lovely readers. I find the Viking period of history, as well as Vikings themselves to be astoundingly admirable people in what they accomplished in their time on this earth, and I believe their ingenuity and warrior/farmer … More Vikings: Valhalla – season two shenanigans
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
I can’t exactly say I’ve kept my love and adoration for perfume a secret here on my blog. I’ve been obsessed with all things scented from a young age, and that is not an exaggeration; when I was about 12 or so, my mom used to have a rule that I had to keep my … More Is Burberry Her Eau De Parfum Spray worth buying?
As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, my mom, sister and I spent an afternoon in Cambridge on the weekend to do a little bit of shopping. After our shopping came to a conclusion, we were trying to figure out where to go for dinner. My sister did a quick Google search to see what restaurants … More Have you been to The Black Badger in Cambridge?
If you’re a PC fan, allow me to start this post off by warning you that you’re probably going to want to move your cursor toward the upper left corner of your screen and hit the red button with the ‘x’ on it. Then again, I’m not entirely certain that’s the location of the ‘exit’ … More Let’s hear it for the MacBook Air
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
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’
Please allow me to begin by acknowledging that the television series ‘The Walking Dead’ is by no means a new show. It’s been around for a while now, and actually, the tenth and final season recently wrapped up. I was certainly familiar with the show and its premise, but I never ended up watching an … More Are you a fan of ‘The Walking Dead’?
Many moons ago, I got my first off-farm job working at Pita Pit in West Brantford. I say off-farm job because my parents’ rule when my sister and I were younger was that if we wanted to work full-time on the farm, that was fine and dandy, but not without getting a job off the … More Have you been to BarBurrito in West Brantford?
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
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
Even if you haven’t seen a single episode of The Office, there is a strong chance you’ve heard of the show, and, really, for good reason. It was hugely successful throughout the duration of its nine seasons, and its success continues to reign long after the show itself concluded. In case you’re unfamiliar with the … More A moment of appreciation for The Office
Earlier this week, I met up with a friend of mine to go for dinner. We originally wanted to have sushi, but after calling two locations in Brantford and not having much luck, we figured we were going to have to get a rain check on the sushi and settle for something else in the … More If you like sushi, 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
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?
I sincerely apologize to any of my readers who don’t watch Stranger Things when I compose posts about the show. I was skeptical of its premise when it first started gaining popularity, and trust me when I say I resisted hopping on the bandwagon for quite an extended period of time. As you likely know … More Stranger Things – yet another update
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 am fully aware that I’m a little late hopping on the Stranger Things bandwagon. The show has been around for a hot minute, and while I’ve been wanting to watch it for a while now, I’ve been in a vicious cycle of watching and rewatching Vikings, Vikings: Valhalla and The Last Kingdom. If you’ve … More Is ‘Stranger Things’ worth the hype?
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?
It is no secret that I have a slight obsession with Vikings and the Viking era in history. Ever since I stumbled across the insanely popular and successful television series ‘Vikings’, I have been positively hooked, and, I think, for good reason. Vikings, while a tad barbaric and uncouth, were rather remarkable people in terms … More Is ‘Vikings: Valhalla’ better than ‘Vikings’?
I believe I first started getting acne when I was around the age of 13. I could be off by a few years; I didn’t exactly make note of when I first noticed a volcanic eruption occurring on my face, if you can imagine that. Fast-forward to now and I’m still dealing with acne. I’m … More Dealing with a stubborn zit? Read this
This past weekend, my bridesmaids and I partook in my bachelorette. I plan to dedicate an entirely separate post to share the glorious details of my bachelorette with all of you. Don’t you worry. To provide you with some context, one of the elements of my bachelorette was dining at Spencer’s at the Waterfront in … More Have you been to Spencer’s at the Waterfront?
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
