Hey everyone! For those of you who don’t live in Canada, we actually celebrate Thanksgiving on October 13th. My family typically doesn’t celebrate Thanksgiving, so it was really exciting to be able to celebrate with my friends for the first time. Let’s start off with the day before. We spent do much time looking up recipes and DIYs to make my plain, very empty room as festive and cozy as possible. To do that, we did some DIY center pieces. Like the whole day, I just helped pick out pieces and watched my friends put it all together beautifully. If […]
Totoro is a character from the movie “My Neighbour Totoro“. His character is so well known that I knew about him and who he is without ever watching the movie for years. Totoro is such a simple character: happy, lazy, sleepy, cute, and kind, making it no surprise he’s the favourite character of many! I knew I had to make a costume because he is so iconic, and who doesn’t want to be all cozy for Halloween in a giant sweater?! No uncomfortable, tight, or high maintenance problems here! Plus, if it’s cold where you live like it is in Canada, you’ll […]
Mike Wazowski from Monster’s University is one of my favourite Pixar characters. Something about quirky and dorky characters just makes them so irresistible. Without a doubt, I decided to DIY a costume. Surprisingly, it’s easier than I thought it’d be to make. If you want to make it more Mike Wazowski like, you can stuff your belly with a pillow so you’re big and round like him! Make sure you watch the video for visual instructions!
Alright, so you all know how my skin is suffering. And I’ve been going through different products and brands, hoping to find something that works. I’ve tried Dermalogica, Body Shop, Neutrogena, Olay, and even Vemma. So far, some of the products and brands work well, but only for a short period before the acne becomes immune to it (annoying, right?). Well, I’ve been hearing and reading articles about asian products and apparently they’re more effective than American products. So, I contacted my friend Bronwyn from Biibiibeauty to help curate a skincare routine for me. I mean- she is an expert on asian products, […]
So, you’ve all seen my first impression review on the Vemma Renew drinks. It was for the purpose of trying to help my acne because I’ve heard stories of how people’s skin have improved a lot after taking this supplement. It’s taken me a while to write this because I wanted to try this product for 2 months instead of 1, and I wanted to see if it would make a different after some time of not drinking the supplements. It wouldn’t be a proper Vemma review if I didn’t take the time to fully test it.
Now, I go through a lot of phases when it comes to healthy eating. And when I say that, I mean I have a very select few dishes I always make when I want something to eat that’s full of flavour and “special” because it’s not just quinoa and whatever dish is on the dinner table. Making healthy meals and trying new recipes is so recreational and therapeutic to me. it’s also very adventurous because you don’t know how it’s going to taste or turn out.
Halloween is all about sweets, candy, chips, and everything that would upset our bodies and rot our teeth. For the children, and for us, it can’t be good at all. I’m trying to eat healthier, so all that it a no-no. Instead, I decided to play in the kitchen to find out what I can make that’s sweet, healthy, and still taste pretty damn amazing. Each of these recipes are slightly similar to one another, making it easy to make all of them. I hope you enjoy them!
This is my absolute favourite and tastiest of my healthy Halloween treats series. I have a sweet tooth for dark chocolate, and this is the best to satiate my cravings! It also reminds me of Reese cups. I mean- if it’s dark chocolate, it has to be kind of healthy, right? haha.
One of my favourite healthy halloween treats is devilled eggs. They are a great source of protein, and you can adjust the taste to whatever you want it to be. If you feel a little spicy, add some hot sauce. If you feel more savoury, mix in some chives or coriander. The possibilities are endless! Adjust the recipe to your liking since we all like something different!
These have to be the cutest healthy Halloween treats that I have made this year. They are my absolute favourite and SO EASY to make. Not to mention it’s great for kids! With cute faces smiling at you, what more can you want? This is also great for making with the kids. Give them a sharpie and let them draw the faces on the disposable shot ups themselves! let their imaginations run wild! There are quite a few variations of this recipe that I have compiled to achieve whatever your taste buds prefer.
So, after attending a seminar about this product, I felt the need to give it a try. The main goal for using this product is not only to nourish my body with nutrients, but also to try and minimize my acne. This product is known for maximum absorption of nutrients into your body. Nutrients absorb much better in liquid form than in pill form (which is what I normally take). Only 10-20% of the pill’s nutrients are absorbed. Meanwhile, liquid is 90-98%. If I’m paying so much for vitamins, I might as well get my money’s worth, am I right? […]
I have never been to a salon to get my hair coloured before because I thought the prices were ridiculous for long and thick hair like mine. Also, I’ve heard of so many horror stories that I’m just too scared to do it. Finally, on Wednesday August 6th, I did it. I got my hair ombred. I originally wanted Balayage, but I feel like my ombre had hints of a Balayage look in it. After getting my hair done, I finally understand why people pay the price to get it professionally done. I was absolutely in love with it! I […]
This is something that’s impacted my life quite a bit, so I am very nervous about posting about this. I wanted to post it up to let anyone who’s suffering know that they’re not alone and also an update as to what’s going on. THE START OF IT – PRIMARY YEARS I’ve had acne ever since I was young, about grade 6-7 it started to sprout. However, the only place it invaded was my forehead. However, I guess to make up for it never breaking out on the rest of my face, the acne was cystic. And I’m talking the […]
I’ve have thick hair (or should I say ‘dense’ for a more accurate technical term) for my whole life. My hair strands are fair in circumference, but I have a lot of it. A lot of the common problems I run into are: Hair being too heavy to tie up– especially annoying when that last loop won’t fit my thick ponytail through it Taking ages to dry when wet Too much hair everywhere when I sleep- also tends to crease when I need a strong hold Curls being prone to falling straight quickly Bobby pins consistently being ruined when stretched out […]
At the beginning of the week I came back to my room to find this: An invitation from my two friends to a boat cruise on the day of my birthday! Now on to the actual day, we went through some commuting troubles in terms of unreliable transportation services that came late. But eventually we made it!
