    My Experience with Total Cleanse

    Last week I set out to do a juice cleanse with Total Cleanse. I had opted for their Refresh Cleanse* and was really excited to give this whole juice cleanse thing a try! The night before I got a stomach bug which carried over into the next day when I was supposed to start my cleanse. I still wanted to give it a go though and managed to complete most of day one before caving in and having some homemade vegetable soup for dinner. I then decided to use the juice as a supplement for the remainder of the time since I was sick but I would say I still…

    Taking Chances

    Today’s blog post is something I had fantasized about writing for years. It still doesn’t feel quite real but I’m pretty excited/nervous about it. I have made the decision to leave my office job to pursue blogging/freelance writing full time! It still feels weird to say it, but I’ve taken the leap and while scary, I couldn’t be happier. For those of you who don’t know, I started my little blog over three years ago now. Since then I have been offered freelance writing contracts with L’Oreal Canada. It’s safe to say that blogging and freelance writing are my passions but I never imagined I would be able to make…

This is never any fun, so this year I wanted to make it a priority to switch up my bedding for summer. This meant getting a new duvet from the Canadian Down and Feather Company! I’m someone who needs to sleep with a duvet year round. I like to feel cozy at…

    Ways to Practice Self Care

    Self care and wellness is something I really want to make a priority for the remainder of this year. I think we as a society associate self care as being indulgent, but truly it’s necessary in order to survive. Self care is certainly something that I typically don’t make time for when things are busy, but I notice such a difference when I do. I’m someone who can be quite hard on myself and I often take on more than I can handle because I want to help as many people as I can. This results in me feeling bad about myself and burnt out a lot of the time…

    Hum Nutrition

    Over the past year or so I’ve become more interested in vitamins and supplements. Most recently I have been trying some new ones from Hum Nutrition! They have a quick 3 minute quiz that helps determine which supplements you need based on your answers, which I think is really great especially for beginners who want to get into taking supplements. My experience with them has been positive so far and I wanted to chat about the three I’ve been using: Skinny Bird* This is an all natural weight loss supplement. The vegan formula works to reduce stress eating, boost your metabolism, curb your appetite, and support healthy blood sugar levels.…
