My 7 Favourite Style Instagram Accounts

Now that I am finally active on Instagram with both daily posts and Instagram stories, I’ve really started to enjoy finding new accounts to follow. I think that discussions about Instagram these days are mostly griping and complaining, so I’ve decided to focus on the positives! (Disclaimer: I’m not an Instagram expert, just a person who uses it.) Some of my favourite accounts are doggos, some are travellers, some are just people sharing their life- today I’m going to focus on the style related Instagram accounts that I’ve been loving lately!

3 Simple and Easy No-Bake Summer Desserts, Make It Monday

We are now officially in June, and summer is fast approaching with cool spring being left behind for more and more heat. While I love baking and find it fairly relaxing, I don’t always want to heat up the oven (and the house) by baking in the summer, so I tend to gravitate towards no bake recipes. These are my favourite three recipes to use in the summer when you want something sweet for dessert but don’t want to deal with the heat of baking!

Kobo Aura Review

I was lucky enough to win a Kobo Aura from Kobo a few months ago– I am a voracious reader, so I couldn’t believe my luck when I read that message! (It pays to enter contests, because you never know when you will win.) I wanted to do a review on it, but I decided to wait until I had used it for a few months before writing it, to get regular use out of it. This review is for the original Kobo Aura, an e-ink e-reader meant for reading on the go!

How Your Life Changes With a Dog

Agnes’ Hoomom is here, to chat today about how your life changes when you get a dog. Unless you always have dogs in your family, life does tend to change when you get a dog (more so than with most other pets). I firmly believe that pets are just as important as any other member of the family, and can make as big or a bigger difference in our life as any person. I’m highlighting the biggest ways that your life can change with a dog and what to expect!

How to Protect Yourself From Sun Damage, Style File Friday

While I think that a lot of the world waits impatiently for spring and summer to arrive and to hopefully bring warm and sunny days to cheer us up, it can be easy to forget how much damage can be done by those sunny days. I think we are all fairly aware of what the sun can do to you but that slips our mind when we are packing up for a weekend out or taking a half hour walk at lunch. These are six specific and easy ways to fight against sun damage and reduce your chances of excess sun exposure!

Snapshot- 30 May 2018

Building on my post from Saturday, I’ve really started to appreciate my hometown of Winnipeg. Sure, we might be a smaller city, only 700,000 people, and we have terrifically cold winters, but we do have some hidden gems that make our city worthwhile… Continue reading

Chocolate Chip Loaf, Make It Monday

If you have been reading my blog for a while, you will know that I bake a lot of desserts- cookies, cakes, pies, all regularly found in my kitchen! However, I am trying to diversify, albeit fairly slowly, starting with a loaf. I know that a lot of people will eat banana bread type-loaves for breakfast but I would argue that might not be the healthiest thing to eat on a regular basis. However, I do think that loaves are a nice evening snack, because they are great for a sweet tooth and can be fairly filling so that you don’t wake up at 1am with hunger pains. This chocolate chip loaf is a standard loaf recipe, and is quite delicious!

There is More to Canada Than the Rockies

As a Canadian, I understand that I feel more warmth and appreciation for Canada than most people in the world, and that makes complete sense to me. People do seem to love visiting Canada, and that makes me so happy to see and hear- to know that other people want to appreciate this lovely country of mine. However, something that I have sadly noticed is that the world seems to think that Canada is made up of Alberta and British Columbia, aka. the Rocky Mountains. It’s actually quite disappointing to see that people are seeing maybe 10% of the country when the rest of our provinces have so much to offer- there is more to Canada than just the Rockies, and I will make the case.
