Candy Experience January 2018

In a twist of irony, one week after I write about four ways to avoid junk food, I'm reviewing a candy box. This just drives home a firm belief of mine though: treats are necessary, in moderation of course. I love candy, and while I try to focus more on healthy eating, everyone deserves a… Continue reading Candy Experience January 2018

Don’t Push My Buttons

There are two details that will always make a shirt catch my eye: lace, and buttons down the back. I can't help but fall in love with shirts with those two details. I get so tempted by them, even if I'm 100% sure that the colour would be terrible on me. A couple of months ago I… Continue reading Don’t Push My Buttons

Second Canadian candy subscription box this week! Seems like a rather suiting theme for Halloween week. This box keeps it simple with their name, being called Candy.
