The words ‘healthy kit’ excite me so much. I faithfully stick to many skincare and health products in my day-to-day activities but I am ALWAYS open to trying new things, especially since livelaughblog is largely a product review blog. Being from Ontario, Canada; it always makes me happy to support local businesses that make plant-based foods and beauty products. I posted earlier on my Instagram page about how I had watched the documentary Food Inc yesterday which really broadens your horizons and opens your eyes about the meat packing industry, as well as the general food industry. It’s really hard to convert your entire life to eatingRead More →

Burning incense has become a hugely popular ritual that can be used for a number of reasons, yet has been around since as early as the Ancient Egyptians. Incense has been used for ritualistic purposes, for religious purposes in Ancient China around 2000 BCE for praying and worship, and for amusement and entertainment in Japan around the 6th century. There are a number of health benefits associated with burning natural incense. Depending on what kind of incense is used and if any essential oils are used, incense can be wonderful for calming the body and mind, elevating bad moods and helping the immune system. The strongRead More →

Dollar Tea Club is a ‘Tea of the Month’ club where you can have premium loose leaf tea shipped right to your door every month for a low cost. The tea is ethically sourced through direct trade and there are over 30 flavours from 5 countries that are delivered. I am an AVID tea drinker. I drink tea at least 2-3 times a day, sometimes more. I am obsessed with the different flavours, the types of teas, and especially the benefits that come from tea. I also can’t emphasize enough how much more beneficial it is to grab a freshly-brewed, loose leaf cup of tea before starting yourRead More →

Before I get into this post, I’m going to tell you a little story. A few months ago, I got back into my yoga practice. I had been receiving Yogi Surprise for a while and I actually started to find use for some of the yoga accessories that I knew I probably wouldn’t have otherwise used. One of those items I received happened to be an orange mandala headband from Soul Flower. I initially had no idea what was so special about it or why I found so much use in it, but I started wearing it to EVERY single yoga practice and even started wearing it aroundRead More →

Aging is a scary thing, especially to people (like myself) who are hitting mid-twenties and wondering when I’m going to magically wake up one day with wrinkles starting to show. I started using a pretty fantastic anti-aging line that fits all my standards of vegan, gluten-free, dermatologist tested and suitable for all skin types. Of course, I didn’t think it was so important to start with anti-aging products early, but here’s why you should: Why it’s important to start young The skin ages both biologically and environmentally, where production of collagen and elastin slows down by 65% between the ages of 20 and 80. 10% ofRead More →

Today I’m reviewing a product that I have wanted to get my hands on for a loooong time but always feared the cost (I am likely the most frugal person you’ll ever come across). I’ve seen beeswax candles in a few local stores before and listened while the sales person raved about the benefits. After being convinced 5 seconds into the conversation, the little factor of the price was brought up and announced how pricey these little candles were (but for good reason of course). I still bit the bullet and purchased the candles, and didn’t regret my decision for a second. Beeswax has aRead More →

I took a recent trip to Niagara Falls as a weekend getaway. This time around, we decided to go with a beautiful view (despite costing a few extra hundos) which showed both sides of the American and Canadian falls. If you ever go and you have some extra bucks to spare, it’s worth it to have this phenomenal view! We also had the pleasure of trying out some different wineries on a wine tour, which took about 4 hours to complete. Although I don’t mind the wait, when you’re hungry and just want to move on to your next destination, 4 hours can be a little long. Check out some ofRead More →
