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 →

Now in high demand for its multiple health benefits, quinoa is known for its perfectly balanced contend in fiber, carbohydrates and complete plant-based protein. The grains can be either white, red or black.

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 →

I am fairly new to the world of blogging but I had been contemplating and researching the best ways to display my blog for months before I actually started it. I didn’t even start my entrance to the social media world with this blog, I started it with my Instagram account livelaughbox. I remember scrolling through Instagram one evening after work and I came across a subscription box, Urthbox, that claimed to deliver healthy snacks to your door in a box on a monthly basis. ‘Cool, this is awesome,’ I thought as I searched the website and looked at the various options of boxes. BeforeRead More →

I got my Calm Box in the mail a couple of days ago and this is definitely one of those niche boxes that I consider essential every month. I regard myself as a decently calm individual but there are definitely times when I let certain situations get the best of me, and I get extremely stressed and anxious in return. The Calm Box provides a themed subscription box with products to help ease the mind and soul, usually including some variation of tea, candles and an activity or item to help calm you down. It costs $35.00/ month with free shipping if you live in TheRead 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 →

I remember the days before I knew what an eyeshadow primer was- ah so innocent. I would cake eye shadow on my face and end up so confused at the end of the night when it had completely melted off my eyelids and a dark crease of oily black makeup was visible every single time I blinked my eye. I was never really THAT much of a make-up person but I was thankful when my close friend- who happens to work at Sephora- bought me my first purple tube of goodness and explained to me what it did. I ONLY review products from a completelyRead More →

We’ve al been there- you wake up in the morning once your alarm goes off and dismiss it for another 5 minutes. You lay there thinking about the events to come in the day ahead, maybe you have an important meeting, maybe you have to drop your kids off at your parent’s house, maybe you don’t have anything to do at all. You get up, make yourself your tea/coffee/whatever it is you drink in the morning, and you sit enjoying the 5 minutes you have to yourself to sip your coffee and reflect on how you feel about today. You feel shitty, you feel likeRead More →

Before I even begin writing the content of this post I just want to express how much I LOVE weddings. I was the typical little girl walking down the pretend aisle in my mom’s wedding dress, with the groom waiting at the end of the aisle in the form of my teddy bear. To this day, I love going to weddings, talking about weddings, planning weddings, etc. I seriously considered becoming a wedding planner twice and I almost enrolled in a weekend course but couldn’t produce the funding at the time. So even though I love weddings, I still think the wedding industry squeezes aRead More →
