I MADE A YOUTUBE CHANNEL?!

I’m not sure if any of you noticed, but I took a week of blogging. With final exams and other personal stressors, I honestly just could not bring myself to prepare an authentic blog post. I did, however, find myself channeling my built up anxiety and poorly suppressed urges for creativity through a new art…

High Protein Power Smoothies

With the weather getting nicer, I’ve been really enjoying making smoothies for breakfast again.

February/March Favourites

These past couple of months, I have accumulated A LOT of favourites. Suspiciously, during the chaotic mid-term months, it appears, I spent way too much time watching Netflix and discovering new tunes… but, hey, I made it through! YOUTUBE Conan Gray quickly became my favourite YouTuber after watching a few videos; I then proceeded to…

Flower Wall

For many, with spring comes the exciting or dreadful task of spring cleaning. Having read Marie Kondo’s “Spark Joy” not too long ago and being as Type A as I am, I label it as EXCITING! The sun is shining and the birds are chirping. While it’s still a little early for the flowers to…

Essential Oil Blends with a Story

Savoury Soup Recipes (Vegan)

Spring is in the air! I can feel it coming! The snow is melting and the temperatures are above freezing…. but I know well enough than to assume Canada has had it’s last bout of winter.

My Beauty Wishlist (Cruelty Free)

During one of my [way too regular] existential crises, I stopped wearing makeup in attempt to reconnect to nature. That might sound odd, but I promise you, it works every time. The next time you’re stuck in a rut, feeling alone and disconnected, take some time to appreciate life for exactly what it is. Wake…

App Appreciation: Be Focused

I feel like just yesterday I was preparing for first semesters finals. Yet here I am, planted at my desk, staring wide-eyed at the calendar reminding me that midterms are fast approaching. The app, Be Focused, is one that I have found incredibly useful this past year. It is free for Apple and Android and…

Warm Gingerbread Breakfast Ideas

The holidays have long passed and I find that by the time February rolls around I am so done with winter. From hat hair to frozen pipes, I am more than willing to hop on a plane and wave goodbye to this winter wonderland. Wouldn’t that be nice… When life gives you lemons, what do you…

December/January Favourites

I was planning on doing a general “Winter Favourites” post at the end of the season, but quickly found favourites adding up, especially in terms of entertainment. So, here it is: a  compilation of everything that has consumed my life for the past two months organized into six categories. MUSIC AND PODCASTS Transitioning from Spotify’s Christmas…
