I went to my boyfriend’s house this weekend and realized that after not seeing him for about a week, he had come down with a cold. We’re talking a nasty, phlegm-filled, runny nose type of cold. It’s not like I could just take off because the poor guy was sick, so of course I stayed accepting that I would likely have the same fate the next morning. After spending a day there, sure enough I woke up the next morning and had the same stuffy and runny nose. While we were relaxing watching the hockey game, I had this ‘eureka’ moment where I remembered this recipe thatRead More →

Sometimes it take years and years and years to realize that everything you want out of life-everything you’ve been working towards and setting your goals towards for the last decade isn’t quite what you want out of life anymore. Maybe you switched your career goals, maybe you decided that you’re not in love with your significant other anymore, or on the other hand you could be single as a Pringle and decide you want to settle down. Whatever decisions we end up making in life, I believe that we, as humans, are all CONSTANTLY changing and evolving and therefore what we wanted a few days,Read More →

One of the reasons I love subscription boxes is the element of surprise that comes with receiving a box in the mail and not having a clue what kind of goodies you’ll find in there. I think Ellebox Co., a subscription box company based out of Vancouver, BC, is one of those companies that promises its receivers to be surprised by what’s inside. Of course, subscribers know the theme of the box when they order it. It’s a ‘period’ or ‘that time of the month’ box designed for anyone who, to put it kindly, bleeds for a week straight and needs some sort of comfort. TheRead More →

If you love red wine, you have probably heard on the regular that red wine can be used to cure just about anything- in moderation, that is. If you’ve ever watched the show How I Met Your Mother and you saw the episode where a pregnant Lily visited Doctor Sonia whose common catchphrase was “Just a little bit”, you’ll remember she told Lily that she could have “just a little bit” of wine. I don’t know anything about drinking wine while pregnant considering I’ve never had a baby, but I do know that Doctor Sonia’s logic with “just a little bit” is probably the bestRead More →

I am SO excited to write about my very first unboxing, and it happens to be a box filled with one of my favourite things (snacks!). When I received my Love with Food box in the mail yesterday, I literally jumped with joy and ran to get the scissors to open it up, forgetting I was doing an unboxing on video (I was THAT excited). Love with Food was the very first subscription box that I ordered for myself, so you can imagine the joy of actually having that box physically in front of you. This month’s box was curated by Tiffany Thiessen, most widelyRead More →

One of the best parts of December (besides Christmas of course) is strutting through the local mall and passing David’s Tea. I can literally smell the store from miles away, and they’re always standing at the door offering the tea of the day or other random samples of goodness for consumers to try out. Being a frequent steeper member and always looking to try new teas, I was AMAZED to see this fantastic advent calendar released in mid-November. Containing 24 teas (with containers full enough for 2, MAYBE EVEN 3, cups of tea each; you get to experience a slew of new winter/Christmas-y flavors on a dailyRead More →
