I’m thrilled to be getting the chance to review more of GoGO Quinoa’s deliciously healthy products! I first heard of GoGo Quinoa when I was opening my January Little Life Box. At the time I was just starting to get involved with completely converting my lifestyle into a healthy one, and quinoa was never really part of my meal plans. To be honest, I didn’t even really know what quinoa is, but GoGo Quinoa gives a good description: Quinoa, an ancient “pseudo-grain”, was consumed by the Incas. Now in high demand for its multiple health benefits, quinoa is known for its perfectly balanced contend inRead More →

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 →

You are about to witness an invention that is probably one of the most simple, yet most genius ideas I have laid my eyes on in a while. I’ve actually wondered how no one has thought of this sooner! You know when you go on vacation and you’re packing the essentials, then you get to your toothbrush and you ask yourself what the least disgusting way is to pack it amidst all of your other essentials? You might have one of those plastic toothbrush carriers, so you stuff your toothbrush in that or you might just toss your toothbrush in your bag and leave it atRead More →

‘Lifestyle Blog is one of those terms that have been questioned over and over as a term that no one quite understands. It’s often misconstrued as: You want to write a blog but you can’t pick a niche; therefore you will lump all of your insights and ideas into one category and call that a ‘lifestyle blog’. I completely disagree with this idea, as lifestyle blogs are not only very interesting but also carry many creative ideas, thoughtful insights, and allow bloggers to express themselves on a whole different level. It also allows bloggers to combine different interests into one blog, instead of creating separateRead More →

You know when you come across those subscription boxes, or maybe even a product that makes you stop and think; ‘where have you been all my life?’ That’s the exact thought I had as I was unboxing my package from Jerky Snob a few days ago. I have always been a jerky lover from when I was a kid and my mom included a package of grocery store-bought jerky in my stocking at Christmas. I remember thinking, what? Why haven’t I tried this before? Where has this been all of my life? Making beef jerky was once the only way that humans could preserve meat- byRead More →

With mid-January just approaching, we are nearly a month away from one of the most controversial holidays of the year; Valentine’s Day! I have never been a person who loves to go all out for Valentine’s day. I used to see guys bringing their girls flowers and gigantic teddy bears at school and nearly gag- what was the big deal about? I wasn’t in a relationship at the time and I spent the majority of my February 14th’s slamming tequila shots with my friends and then heading out to a mediocre bar just to come home alone and miserable. I associated Valentine’s Day with everything thatRead More →
