One Blogger's Review: David's Tea Frosted Cereal

Image
One of my weaknesses in life is a hot cup of David's Tea. When I ordered my latest haul of tea I was in the mood for a nostalgic taste to take me back to my childhood. I wanted something that would remind me of my favourite goodies growing up, but without all the sugar. When I noticed they had a new flavour this season called Frosted Cereal my curiosity got the better of me.

Frosted Cereal, a tea which David's Tea describes as similar to "crave-worthy milk at the bottom of your cereal bowl." This sounded like the perfect choice for treating my taste buds to a blast from the past.

Shake Up Your Eyeshadow Routine With Coastal Scents

Your eyes are usually the first thing a person notices when they meet you. Some would say they are the window to your soul. As far as my makeup routine goes, my eyes are the area in which I allow myself the most room to play around and experiment with colour. Normally I prefer neutral shades such as tans/gold or pale pinks/peaches for my everyday eyeshadow looks. Every once in a while I like to throw in some brighter and bolder colours. Even though these bold colours can be a lot of fun to play around with, if they aren't used correctly my end results can look a little clownish.

6 Simple Tricks To Make Your Home Smell Amazing

Image
I can make a pretty safe bet that if you are no longer a rebellious teenager living with your parents than you probably have no desire to sit around a messy room. Even though I am not always the tidiest person, I still strive to keep my home in a liveable condition. I also love to have scented candles and sprays to keep my house smelling good at all times. The only trouble with those is that they can be costly and contain chemicals that can be harsh for some people's lungs.

According to Statista the average Canadian works 35-40 hours per week. On top of that a lot of people have some sort of side hustle going on to make ends meet, a family to take care of, or even extra classes in the evening.  Any of these situations could be yours and you may not have the time to keep the house as organized as you want.

What To Do When Your Blog Link Gets Banned On Twitter

Image
Here's the situation, you have just finished a blog post and try to share it on Twitter only to recieve the message "Failed to load tweet". 
So you check your Twitter app and see that there is no problem sending other tweets or replying to accounts that you follow. Once again you try to tweet the link to your blog and recieve the same "Failed to load tweet" message. 
Twitter can be one of the best social media platforms to market your blog on if you use it right. Using hashtags such as #blogger and #bloggerstribe as well as sharing your link on Blog Train Threads (when a user asks for people to share the links to their latest posts in the comments section) can drive a lot of traffic to your webpage. Not being able to tweet the link to your webpage can be very frustrating, especially as you watch your daily views go down.

Sweet & Tangy Cucumber Mojito

After what felt like the longest winter of my life I can happily say that summer is finally here. There are a few things that are essential for every summer season such as fun prints, the scent of barbecue in every neighborhood, a playlist made specifically to give you island vibes and of course a refreshing cocktail (or mocktails) to cool off with.

I am a huge fan of mojitos. The lime and the mint mix surprising well together. I always thought the combination would be disgusting until I actually gave it a try. Now I have a mint plant in my garden so I can have fresh mint on hand whenever I want to have one.

The No Makeup Challenge

One night, a few weeks ago, I stayed up way past my bedtime binge-watching The Good Place (Netflix, if you see this we're ready for 3rd season already!). Needless to say, the next morning I was not ready to wake up when my alarm went off. Late nights have never treated me well, I feel out of sorts the next day if I don't get an adequate amount of sleep. Some people are able to get by on 4 hours of sleep and function at a normal pace. I am most definitely not one of those people.

Every morning when I wake up, before I start getting ready I have a cup of coffee and check my phone to catch up on current events. That's my pre-morning preparation break and it's mandatory if you expect me to function at work for the day. 

Elusive Darlings: My First Channillo Series

As an avid reader I have grown to love the idea of ebooks. A few years ago that was something I never thought I would say. It is hard to beat the feeling of being the first one to crack open the pages of a new book. Oh, and that smell. Don't get me started on how amazing the smell of new books are.

I live in a community on the outskirts of a really small town surrounded by other small towns. If I want a specific book I either have to travel about an hour or order it online and wait. One of the perks about ebooks is that I can start reading as soon as I order the book.

My impatience isn't my main reason for loving ebooks though. The websites that sell ebooks are giving independent writers who can not afford to publish their work in hard copies a chance to publish their work online and sell it at a fair price. There are actually a lot more book options in the world of ebooks as well.
