By | November 7th, 2017|Lifestyle, Travel|

When I went to Europe last year, for what became The 2016 European Museum Tour with my cousin, I needed a new bag. Never one to just make a purchase randomly, I researched. I needed something that would be sturdy to survive cobblestone streets but could also be used as a backpack if I needed [...]

Eliminating—or, significantly reducing—caffeinated coffee from your diet can dramatically improve symptoms such as dehydration, IBS, leaky gut, acne, hormonal imbalance, depression, anxiety, foggy brain, joint pain, poor circulation, energy levels, adrenal fatigue, to name a few. Why on earth should we give up coffee? With the rise in many chronic and debilitating illnesses, even autoimmune [...]

I Used to Be an Internalized Misogynist and So Can You!

By | July 10th, 2017|A Different Point of View, Lifestyle|

As we all probably know (unless you haven’t paid attention to politics in this past year), misogyny is the dislike of, contempt for, or ingrained prejudice against women. It’s a pervasive ideology that is still widespread in our culture, even though women achieved voting rights long ago. Misogynists exist in every circle, every industry, every [...]

A Black Rose – A Guest Blog Post with a Different View

By | June 20th, 2017|A Different Point of View, Lifestyle|

When I was younger, my prize possession was a single snow globe. It was small enough to fit inside my palm, but encased in the glass was my greatest treasure; a magical city. The globe lived beside my bed, and each night I would pray to the god above that when I pried my eyes [...]

Amsterdam – Where The 2016 European Museum Tour Began

By | June 5th, 2017|Activities, Europe, Fashion, Food, Lifestyle, Travel|

One day at work I opened my emails, and there was a beaming one (maybe it was just beaming in my memory). It was from WestJet, offering a new route to London, England. There was also an amazing introductory sale price that worked out to be about $700.00 return after everything was calculated, for the [...]

My Favourite Romance Authors With Humour & Strong Females

By | May 16th, 2017|Books/Authors, Lifestyle|

Being single means you have to either be a strategist and/or read minds. I play the ‘Easy as Pie’ level of Sudoku on my iPhone. So you know, I haven’t found someone permanent yet. I love men. I love the way they sometimes look. The way some of them walk. The way some of them [...]

By | April 26th, 2017|Activities, Australia, Food, Lifestyle, Travel|
