Saving My Gut

I have been dealing with IBS (or irritable bowel syndrome) for as long I can remember… I just didn’t happen to know what it was until I was finally diagnosed. I’ve been trying my very best to promote a healthy gut; from a dairy-free diet, to less alcohol. To my understanding, dairy is one of…

Sunday Funday

You (or your kids) no longer have to be in a certified lab to be scientists. I have many young siblings, most hoping to be scientists some day. Thankfully, at school, they have access to some scientific tools (here and there, along with some school rules and limitations); and when summer time comes, they don’t…

Power Bank

I don’t know about you, but to me there is nothing more frightening than a dying iPhone, iPad, laptop, etc. when on the go. As a result of these, I have gone through a multitude of nightmares, from not being able to request an Uber taxi at a time of urgency, to not being able…

Simple Solutions

Save my gadgets

Thanks to our laptops and smartphones we have access to almost everything and anything – from bank statements, friends around the world, emails, calendars, reminders, health tracking (you know the whole deal). As we interact with our gadgets the inevitable happens: the battery drains. And, if…

My Salon At Home 

Let’s face it, most of us can’t go a week without straightening our hair. I have frizzy and wavy hair, so not straightening my hair means that I’ll go a day looking like I got caught in a very humid tornado. I have found some products to help my hair stay in ultimate shape. But…

Keeping it fresh 

One of my greatest pet peeves is messy food storage. Most of the foods we buy come in some sort of plastic bag or container (chips, nuts, seeds, cereal, salad bags, cheese… you name it). And as we all know, when these are not perfectly sealed after use, you end up with food that spoils…
