Enjoy Superfood Snacks by Navitas Snacks [Review and Giveaway]

I like to have some snacks throughout the day, and usually go for almonds or mixed nuts. But I really like when I have the chance to try something different. They're snacks are certified organic, non-GMO, and they also have gluten-free options!

I had the chance to try Superfood Coconut Chips, Superfood Almonds and Superfood Pepitas by Navitas Snacks. And if you are curious about what they meant by superfood, here's a portion of their definition from their website -

"A superfood is a nutrient-dense fruit or vegetable that contains a high content of antioxidants, protein, omega-3, minerals, fiber or other essential nutrients that have proven health benefits." 

Read more about it on their website. 

And here's my thoughts on what I had the chance to review -

Coconut Chips (Cacao)

I liked these although they were a bit chewy and stuck together, but they tasted GREAT! I LOVED how they tasted. It had a light coconut flavor but I they had a cocoa vibe to them so that made…

[Guest Post] 6 Tips & Tricks for Choosing Your Bridal Gown

This is a guest post featuring some helpful tips about bridal gown selections.

1. Know what you want.

First of all you need to understand for yourself what types of bridal gowns you like before getting to bridal gowns stores in Toronto. You can find the models that you would like to try via the Internet or at the printed magazines. The best way is when you come to a bridal gowns store and say: “I need Mori Lee number 5, size 2” so the assistance will be able to understand what preferences you have to help you.

2. Everything needs to be done in the right time! 

With no doubt, you should start thinking about your bridal gowns choice beforehand, but if you start doing it when you just meet a man, then know that it is too early! Most experts would advise to start looking for a bridal gown around eight months before your wedding day.

On the other hand, if you begin to look for bridal gowns too early and buy one too early, then you get into a risk group of second-guessing your choice in the f…

Every new and professional baby photographer in Toronto knows about force majeure situations during the photo sessions and some that happen afterwards and this guest post written by a baby photographer from Toronto for any baby photographer to help him or her deal with such not pleasant issues.

Poop on the blankets.
Poo is the least pleasant thing in babies but it is something that happens all the time with any baby photographer. Experts say that the best way to get rid of it is Oxi Clean Spray, just buy it and follow the directions on the bottle!

Props and Fabric Cleaning Issue.

Send Me Gluten-Free - August Box Review (And Giveaway)

Some time ago, I had the chance to review the monthly subscription box for Send Me Gluten Free. It had a variety of interesting flavors and experiences to try - some I enjoyed more than others. And I had the chance to try out the July subscription box and I can't wait to tell you about it! Take a look at the photo above and that will give you a pretty good idea of what you can expect inside, but here's more about each item I received -

Beanfield Bean Rice Chips - Nacho

You can't go wrong with chips and I love these bean & rice chips. They taste hearty and you can taste the mild bean flavor, which is a good thing (makes me feel healthy!). This is a better alternative to the standard chips you may buy in the store. I highly recommend trying these for yourself.


Keenwah Quinoa Puffs Aged Cheddar

Oh these were good, but EXTREMELY crunchy. Like, whoa, crunchy. But they were still awesome, and I loved the cheddar flavor.

WB Kitchen - healthy & Tasty Brownies and Bars [Review and Giveaway]

I can't wait to tell you about this tasty new treat that I had the chance to try. And oh these were so good. WB Kitchen started in 2012 by Chris Feuille. It's paleo friendly and their honey treats they create are organic, non-gmo, and  is a paleo friendly AND gluten-free!

I had the chance to try out their Brownie Honey Cookie, Coconut Shortbread, Cinnamon Raisin, Maple Pecan, Peanut Butter as well as some of their new coffee bars that include Chocolate, Honey Nut, Peanut Ginger, and Mocha Java.

Of the ones I tried the peanut butter and brownie honey flavors were my favorite. I loved these so much - I'm a huge fan of anything peanut butter anyways. These won't make you feel guilty either because they aren't overly bogged down with sugar. The coffee bars were an interesting experience and not as much of a "cookie" or "brownie" texture as the other bars, but they were still good (I didn't have the guts to try out the peanut ginger, though to …

Have you ever wondered what it’s like to have an interior designer in your home? It’s no longer just a fantasy with help from the interior design start-up Homepolish. They make it easy (and affordable!) to get an interior designer in your home who will help create the perfect space for you. The experience is truly one of a kind so we decided to break it down for you in three easy steps:

1. Let the designer get to know you:


Tell them the bare bones: are you interested in working on a home, office, store or something else? How big is it? Do you have a project budget? Do you own or rent? And then tell them the juicy stuff: What inspires you? What does your ultimate dream space look like? From picking paint colors to gutting a brownstone, they can handle any project, any size.

2. The first date, aka meet your homepolish designer:


Here’s what happens during your initial 1 hour consu…

Celebrate The End of Summer with Glutino

To be honest, I'm not a huge fan of the summer season and this summer in particular has been fairly miserable. The heat has been tremendous! But as each season comes to an end, particular as the fall season comes in, I end up feeling a little melancholy. I realize how quickly the year has gone (although I am well aware how the awesome holidays are soon upon us!).

So, if you are in the mood to celebrate the end of summer, make sure you pick up some amazing Glutino products. I had the chance to try a few of their items, and even some new items, and I can't wait to share these with you.



As you will see above, I am showing you one of my favorite finds - tortilla dippers!! These can withstand any of your party's dip. You WILL want these - I am huge fan of things like salsa, ketchup, all that good stuff. So chip dippers like me will appreciate this. Find out more about dippers here.
Also pictured above,  I had the chance to try out the Glutino Breakfast Bars. I wasn't a hu…

Alternative Baking Company - One Smart Cookie [Review and Giveaway]

Remember my review of the Alternative Baking Company? Well I reviewed some of the amazing treats some time ago, and I can't wait to tell you about some more treats I had the chance to try recently.

The last time I reviewed some of the awesome, tasty "I can't wait for more" gluten free cookies. Well, this time I had the chance to try something called, "That's One Smart Cookie" made by the same amazing baking company. Check them out below -




I tried out Chocolate Chip and Coconut Fudge. And you know what? I thought they were pretty good! They are definitely not very sweet but actually I didn't mind. You know what I did? I stirred it into my yogurt (which gave it a major upgrade) and I enjoyed myself thoroughly. The chocolate chip has 7 grams of protein (and 8 grams net carbs) and the coconut fudge has 7 grams of protein. These were definitely a treat that needs something with it, like maybe a mild slathering of peanut butter or almond butter, or honey…
