I just love DIYs. They’re cheap, fun and so easy to do. This is a short guide on how we (my husband and I worked on them) made our very own toilet bombs and we are so in love with just having them at home. We try to save as much time as we can at home. We put marriage/ family (with Boogie, our 11 year-old … Continue reading DIY: Homemade Toilet Bombs
I’ve been pretty quiet these few weeks as I’ve been ramping up basic materials to get me going with my homemade ideas. It doesn’t seem like it but I love making diy products : they’re inexpensive, natural and the best thing of all – they’re cruelty free! I started a few weeks ago making aromatherapy oil mixes and ointments and decided maybe it’s time to take it a … Continue reading DIY : 100% Natural Gel Eyeliner (Waterproof)
Transitioning from M.A.C. to cruelty-free products was a big step for me but I was eager and desperate to find the right mix that will provide me the coverage I needed – a big risk for someone who’s been loyal to a product for years.

Obviously (and if you know me personally), salads are my staple meals and I’m always on the hunt for the best ones. However, there are times I really … Continue reading Spicy Spinach Pasta Salad
After having a gallbladder removed, a person’s digestion changes, and that is a fact. I had to go through a lot of adjustments even if I have already started living healthier a year before the operation. Given a few dietary advice by my surgeon, he still recommended that I research more on it. So being the bookworm that I am, I did my homework! I … Continue reading Gallbladder, gone! Now what?
A typical and funny conversation: Person : Have you always lived a healthy life? Me: Nope! Person: Then what made you decide to lead one? Me: I had my gallbladder removed (via laparoscopic cholecystectomy) because I had gallbladder stones. Person: Oh, did you have a hard time peeing then? Me: Gallbladder stones, not Kidney ones. Person: Oh, right. Wait, what’s the gallbladder for again? And … Continue reading Goodbye, gallbladder! Hello, a newer me.
