I started to build my tea collection about a year ago (mostly with David’s Tea) and I remember I became so obsessed that I was drinking tea sometimes 2, 3 or even 4 times a day. I even had to get a new kettle because I broke our 20-year-old one from over-usage. After trying many, many, MANY different kinds of tea from David’s Tea, I decided it was time to branch out and try other brands; namely organic tea that is difficult to find in stores. I started searching for tea subscription boxes but I found many were overpriced and didn’t include as much tea asRead More →

It’s my favourite time of the week- subscription box reviews! I have been anxiously awaiting the arrival of this lovely box shipped from Western Canada. I usually like to look for boxes that I can purchase that either support some kind of charity or carries items that are derived from small and local businesses. Fortunately for me, this box has both features! Every time you purchase a Calla Life Box, a portion of the proceeds will be donated to a deserving charity. I know in the past, the company has worked with “I Can For Kids” to help end childhood summer hunger. Cost: The boxRead More →

Believe it or not, tea was once used as solely a herbal remedy to help sore throats and sickness. Today, it used not just to treat colds but also largely used for pleasure. I look forward to waking up in the morning and making my tea of the day because it literally soothes my soul when I’m at work and makes my morning commute that much more bearable. Aside from purchasing (sometimes too much) tea from David’s Tea, receiving tea in monthly subscription boxes and making impulse purchases in random grocery stores, sometimes I enjoy steeping my own tea with herbs, spices, etc. I likeRead More →

I don’t know about you guys, but giving Christmas gifts are 100000% my favourite part of Christmas. You get to see the expression on someone’s face when you hand them that gift that you just KNOW they have been waiting for. I’ve always been one who likes to give personalized gifts, especially handmade cards with pictures plastered all over the front of the awesome times you have shared with that special person. I have made so many personalized gifts over the years, I thought I would share my favourite DIY gift ideas!

I know I usually write about healthy and wellness living, considering I am extremely passionate about what I do and what I write about on a daily basis. BUT, with the spirit of Christmas in the air and the holidays less than two weeks around the corner, a dessert recipe is needed, no, it’s MANDATORY! I have many, many, many favourite recipes to make around Christmas but I decided to share one that I haven’t made in a couple of years. This recipe pretty much appeals to anyone who likes chocolate, cherries, and a luscious graham cracker-buttery crust. Need I convince you more that youRead More →

I don’t know about you guys, but the concept of a subscription box is something that is fairly new to me. My channel, Instagram and blog are mostly focused on lifestyle and wellness products but a huge portion of my reviews are actually based on subscription boxes, and I want to take some time to introduce why and how my new found love subscription boxes came about. Let’s start with the concept of a surprise box filled with goodies arriving to your day each month, season, bi-monthly, etc. Depending on what your interests are, I’m pretty sure a box exists to cater to EVERY interest you could everRead 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 →

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 →
