Winter Boots 101

It’s no surprise that I LOVE Cougar Shoes. Past winters and springs, you’ve seen me wear and support the brand. Not only are the shoes cute but they are comfy, warm and waterproof! Living in Canada, these are important factors when looking for boots because it’s not just the snow that gets us, it’s the slush! When that seeps into your shoes onto your socks, you’re not going to be happy. This year Cougar Shoes was nice enough to send me two new…

Vegan Leather Jackets

The past couple winter seasons I’ve been partnering up with NOIZE who focus on creating faux fur and vegan leather pieces. This year I decided to go a bit out of my comfort zone and pick the Kim Vegan Leather Biker Jacket in yellow. This yellow vegan leather jacket is even better than I thought. I wasn’t so nervous about the jacket as the belt around the side can be removed to give the jacket a more causal look. Instead, I was nervous about…

DIY Green Tea Matcha Balls

DIY Green Tea Matcha Balls Matcha offers a TON of health benefits which makes it the perfect ingredient to put into your snacks or even latte! It’s made from a high-quality tea where the whole leaves are ingested making it a higher source of nutrients compared to steeped green tea. Because you’re consuming the whole leaves, matcha can also give you a better start to your morning as it can contain 3x as much caffeine than a cup of steeped tea. Lately, I’ve…

Walking on the World’s Tallest Free-Standing Structure

When you first think about walking around the World’s Tallest Free-Standing Structure you’re probably going to have the same thoughts I did – “Yup, I’m definitely going to pee my pants up there.” Spoiler alert, I did not! When the opportunity came up to try a new adventure with Dee (Liner, Glitter, Gloss, Oh, My!) we knew The Toronto Edge Walk was what we wanted to try. You start your adventure by checking in at the Base Camp next and then are brought into a room for a…

Taste of St. Thomas, Ontario Tour

Taking the time to visit the local areas that are right in our backyards is so important. This is why I LOVE partnering up with Ontario Southwest. I feel like every time we have a vacation, we all instantly think of going somewhere tropical. Yes, I am guilty of this too. However, the best thing about visiting areas that are close to us is that it can be done within a single day or even a weekend. I headed to St. Thomas with…

Exploring Ball’s Falls Conservation Area

Ball’s Falls Conservation Area Located just outside Beamsville, Ontario you can find one of the best places to hike and sip wine. Two of my favourite things. Surrounded by some of the best wineries in Twenty Valley is Ball’s Falls Conservation Area. We started off our visit to the area with a stop at Calamus Estate Winery, which is located pretty close to the falls. The owners were super nice and allowed us to park in their lot as we went exploring. From their lot, it…

How to Hand Knit a Chunky Blanket

Last year I created a DIY Hand Knitted Scarf so this year I wanted to show you guys how to hand knit a chunky blanket! There is no pattern or needles required. All you need is 7-8 balls of yarn and your hands. I picked up this yarn at my local craft store and it’s perfect for this DIY. Most of the chunky blankets that I’ve seen in the past use wool and I personally find them so itchy and they shed EVERYWHERE. I…
