Fruity Chia Pudding Recipes

Chia pudding is a great nutritious breakfast or dessert option. Two tablespoons of the tiny seeds provide an immense amount of vitamins and nutrients, including omega-3 fats, protein, fibre, and calcium! Since the seeds themselves have no flavour, the chia pudding recipes are endless. Here is the base recipe: 2 TBSP chia seeds 1/2 cup…

Simple DIY Hygiene Products

I’m all about doing everything that I can to reduce my ecological footprint. Climate change and global warming are real things and, even if I can’t singlehandedly reverse them, I want to do everything that I can. After all, it all starts with one person, right?

Beauty Hack: Baby Powder

We’re all guilty of running out of the house with dirty hair. Whether you overslept in the morning or got a last minute invite to go out, sometimes there is just no time to wash, dry, and style our hair. That is probably why dry shampoo quickly became a staple in every girls’ bathroom. Those…

Smoothies for Every Occasion

Smoothies are a great way to get good foods into your body on the busiest of days. They are a go-to breakfast for me when I’ve overslept. Although great in the morning, they can, and should, be enjoyed at all times of the day. Here are three different smoothies recipes for three different occasions (but…

Bounce Ball Review

Bounce is an Australian company that makes a unique variation of a protein bar: a protein ball! They make their classic protein energy balls, which I am reviewing, as well as vegan balls and bites.

August Favourites

My Favourite Hairstyles for Short Hair

Last fall, I dyed my hair purple and felt on top of the world. Remembering that feeling, I decided to change up my hair once again. I was long overdue for a cut, so I got it chopped to a blunt bob above my shoulders with dramatic bangs. I haven’t had bangs since elementary school,…

Vegan “Egg Salad” Sandwich

I call this a vegan “egg salad” because the consistency is similar to that of an egg salad. Really, it is a chickpea salad. Whether you’re vegan or not, it is the perfect lunch on a hot day. Like an egg salad, you can add any of your favourite spices, diced onions, celery, etc. to…

DIY Sunglasses Display

As I move into my new room, I’m trying to focus on creating a space that makes me feel zen. I want to come home, close my door, and instantly feel at ease. I love being in nature. I love the thought of humans coexisting on this planet with other living species. I find it…
