I cannot describe the newfound excitement for going to the loo. Going pee has become synonymous with joyride! I have two bathrooms. Each had a toilet. Those now have bidets, and I am having a blast telling everyone about them. (Be prepared for a few puns!) On top of being super eco-friendly, a bidet is … Continue reading Better Off With Bidets
I have been wanting to write about this for a year! In January of 2021, I had just finished watching Down to Earth with Zac Efron and Darin Olien. A docuseries about the amazing communities and countries that are working to better the environment, it shows that there are ways to improve your health all … Continue reading My AHA Moment
I don't have to tell you about the dangers of not using sunscreen. For fun on how we used to know so little, watch this hysterical comparison bit of a 1980s mom vs a 2019 mom. I cried so hard from laughing my butt off watching this. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tKWn3t8UJcE But there are dangers to the planet … Continue reading Protect More Than Your Skin With Sunscreen

I have very passionately written in the past about menstrual cycles and how to use reusable products to get you through those crappy, bloaty days in my post Bloody Disaster. I was given the opportunity to review Wishy-Washy Cloth reusable pads.* Granted, I have only used two types of reusable pads in my life, but … Continue reading Wishy-Washy Cloth Is My Decisive Choice

I am in a stage of life right now where my holidays are local. We don't wander too far from home. With little kids, this just works for us. For a couple of years, we've been vacation-bound to the shores of Wasaga Beach with the extended family for our summer getaway. While playing with my … Continue reading The Grass Can Be Greener On The Sandy Side
