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

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!

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.

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...]

How to Have the Best Year Ever

How to have the best year ever

New Year’s resolutions: don’t you just hate them? Many people make them, and never stick to them, or make resolutions that they think they should—like a resolution to lose a certain amount of weight. I’m doing things differently this year; really focusing on what is most important to me. First, I started by creating a word for the year, and using that to guide me with my goals and intentions for the year. Along with the word of the year, I will be using several other tools in my life.  … [Read more...]
