Dyson DC77 Multi Floor Vacuum

Dyson DC 77 Multi Floo

The Dyson DC77 Multi Floor is a multi floor vacuuming dream machine. I recently welcomed the Dyson DC77 in to my home and in to my life. This is the kind of vacuum that doesn't have me dreading "vacuum day" each week. As the days get longer and there are more sunny days in the forecast, it becomes more obvious how much dust collected on the floor and on my upholstered surfaces. In the daylight everything becomes more clear—having my windows open all the time and having so many trees nearby … [Read more...]

3 Ways to Enjoy Matcha Green Tea

matcha-components

I've been hearing about the health benefits of matcha green tea for quite a few months now. It's not something new, but it's certainly been posted about more frequently lately. What's the deal with matcha? It's "the new espresso"—it gives you energy in a more healthy way, though. There's tons of minerals and nutrients. The chlorophyll in it makes it detoxifying. … [Read more...]

The Wellness Show Vancouver 2015

Earth Balance

This past weekend, I attended the Wellness Show at the Convention Centre in Vancouver. The show ran from February 13, 14 and 15th. With the amount of workshops going on throughout the day, it was hard for me to decide where to spend my time! Should I learn about overcoming allergies or watch a cooking demo?! #wellness15 @TheWellnessShow pic.twitter.com/zqSY9pe7hq — Tazim Damji (@beingtazim) February 15, 2015 Obviously, I chose to attend the "Got Allergies" talk given by Lisa Kilgour at the … [Read more...]

redbubble iphone case

It's easy to keep love close to you at all times when you're reminded of it, as it hugs your cellphone. Redbubble has cases for your gadgets, t-shirts (and other garments), tote bags and more to help you keep images and messages that speak to you close-by.

Ready to Go: Portable Travel-Ready Belkin Fusive Speaker (with Giveaway Canada only)

Belkin Fusive Speaker

I'm planning a quest to visit every National Park and National Historic Site in Canada, starting next month. It'll take me upwards of 10 years, given the size of the country and the remote location of some of the sites/parks. I'm saying this because I'll definitely be needing some music with me to listen to in hotel rooms when I travel! The Belkin Fusive Bluetooth Speaker is really light, comes with its own carrying case and puts out great sound. It's a clear winner when it comes to portability … [Read more...]

I bet you know some lovely ladies who'd appreciate some self-care treats for Valentine's Day, too. … [Read more...]

Home Décor that Inspires Adventure

home decor adventures

I love to surround myself with things that have positive messages, inspire me to reach for my goals and install a sense of adventure in my life. On top of having vision boards, inspiring quotes and pictures around my home, I have found that my latest home décor addition–stone coasters from Zazzle.com–inspires adventure. Every time I put down or pick up a cup or glass from atop one of the 4 stone coasters I have, I see something that symbolizes freedom and adventure (to me): hot air balloons. … [Read more...]

3 Things I’m Currently Loving January

3 Things I'm Currently Loving January

It feels like it’s been a long month. I mean, I guess since there are 31 days this month, it should feel longer. For this year, I’ve given myself an allowance for little things that make me happy: bi-weekly flowers, one new record a month, pizza once a month (ordered, eaten out or made), as well as set-up a few automatic savings initiatives. This has made it really easy to think back on my progress and things I’ve done throughout the month. Oh, seeing my friend Vic? That was the time we went … [Read more...]
