Sweet and Spicy Curry Lentil Salad

I love mixing curry into salads and all the ingredients that come along with it. The mixture of spices plus the sweetness of raw and flavourful raisins and almonds are, for myself, one of my most favourite combinations when it comes to homemade salads. This recipe is 100% gluten, dairy, peanut, grain and sugar free, plus it’s vegan and protein-packed that can be served hot … Continue reading Sweet and Spicy Curry Lentil Salad

Why I Travel with Backpacks

Backpack versus Luggage. This has been a well-debated subject over the past few years between myself and myself. To be honest, I’m not comfortable leaving home without my home with me. It’s an iffy feeling to walk out of the house without your essentials with you – and essentials I mean everything (up to an extra foldable grocery bag inside your bag). But over the course of years … Continue reading Why I Travel with Backpacks

Trapeze: Are you an addict?

There are noteworthy blogs all around that write about their adventures in flying and how it changed their lives. To name a few you have Kyla Duffy, Susie Goldfarb and Lynn Braz. I look up to these women and I follow them all over social media. The moment I first jumped off the board I knew I’ll get ultimately hooked and I haven’t stopped flying since then. Seriously, I … Continue reading Trapeze: Are you an addict?

Caring for your trapeze hands

Five months from now, I’m officially celebrating my fly-nniversary of three years. There’s so much to write about my trapeze life (admittedly my addiction) but I’ll start with the basics. Today’s topic: How (over the course of years) I took care and still take care of my hands. When I started flying, I knew that my hands will eventually build up calluses and rip thereafter. I’ve accepted that fact. I was a … Continue reading Caring for your trapeze hands

Nature’s Gate: Enriching Biotin + Bamboo Shampoo and Conditioner

I decided to switch to this product  right after my first Vegan and Non-GMO ones  (JĀSÖN® Volumizing Lavender Shampoo and Conditioner) because that didn’t work for me as I’d expected.  It made my hair so dry and limp that I decided to switch to a different brand. I also noticed that JĀSÖN® products are too harsh for my skin. Although my skin isn’t as sensitive as my … Continue reading Nature’s Gate: Enriching Biotin + Bamboo Shampoo and Conditioner

DIY : 100% Natural Gel Eyeliner (Waterproof)

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)

Gabriel Cosmetics : Moisturizing Liquid Foundation

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. I was so excited when I read about this product so I quickly searched for it (calling Healthy Options stores) and luckily … Continue reading Gabriel Cosmetics : Moisturizing Liquid Foundation
