Packed Schedule Calls for #LaundryRedefined

packed schedule - #laundryredefined

I'm participating in a VIN campaign for P&G. I'm receiving a fee for posting; however, all opinions are entirely my own. That's just how I roll. I am in no way affiliated with P& G and do not earn a commission or percent of sales. During hot summer days, when I want to spend time outdoors, and cool winter days when I'd rather be cozy with a loved one or checking out a favourite restaurant with family and friends, the last thing I want to do is cut the day short by having to do a load of … [Read more...]

3 Pure Products for Eco-Friendly Haircare

Mastey haircare

My hair is something people often comment on. Not to say that my hair the best thing since sliced bread or anything, but it is healthy-looking and shiny. I have sensitive scalp and prefer to purchase products that are eco-friendly and free off ingredients that cause irritation. Labelling is big for me. I don't like having to guess about ingredients, where things are made, and if the product will be suitable for my haircare needs. As a vegan, I love knowing that all of Mastey's products … [Read more...]

How to Make Healthy Food Choices the Easy Way

Healthy Food Choices

My food choices are informed by the way I live life in general: I make them consciously and with deliberate action. You’ll find me at my local grocery store reading the backs of food packages, or selecting my favourite organic fruit and vegetables from the produce section. Knowing exactly what I’m putting in to my body is important to me. It’s been a while since I started making healthier food choices, choosing organic options—with no artificial colours, flavours or sweeteners—whenever … [Read more...]

I Love Vegetables! Do your Clothes Make you Feel Like Yourself?

Leggings - I love Veggies

What do the clothes you wear say about you? I'm not talking about looking at someone and judging them based on the brands they wear, or how soccer-mom-y they look. Do your clothes make you feel like yourself? I had to ask myself that, as I looked through my closet and dresser not long ago. I recently went through a purge and donated all the clothes that I no longer love and make me feel both beautiful and like myself. How much of what I had didn't fit that description? Oh, about 2 garbage bags … [Read more...]

3 Things I’m Currently Loving: April

It's here! Q2 (April, May, June) has started! I don't know about you, but I feel like it's the time of year when I get (really) serious about working towards my bigger picture goals. Q1 (January, February, March) can feel hibernate-y, where I'm just waiting for sunshines and warmer days to arrive. Or maybe, I've been working towards my goals but not in a "go big" kind of a way. Can you relate? I recently reviewed my Q1 goals, answering questions like: what went this quarter? what were the most … [Read more...]

How to Use Solid Shampoo from LUSH

How to Use Solid Shampoo from LUSH

It's kind of crazy how much fun and how inexpensive shampoo bars from LUSH are. I find myself reaching to use them even when I also have liquid shampoo at home. Because—did I mention how much fun they are to use? The Copperhead and Montalbano shampoo bars I was sent also happen to work exceptionally well in my hair. If you think washing your hair with a shampoo bar will make it gross-feeling, like you've used a bar of soap in it—think again. Both the Copperhead and the Montalbano shampoo bars … [Read more...]
