Genuine Health’s pain relief line

Genuine Health’s pain relief line

As some of you may know, I’ve been suffering from extreme back pain and trying absolutely everything to feel better… And I mean everything!  I’ve been working with a personal trainer which has helped my range of motion, strengthening muscles, and getting me steps closer to achieving my fitness goals. Even though I’ve seen an improvement in my body since I began training and exercising regularly, the large protruded disc in my L5, S1 still causes me a ton of pain daily.

I discovered Genuine Health’s pain relief line that’s an all-natural alternative to taking Advil or Tylonel. Their newest addition to the line, FAST joint care+ with fermented turmeric, provides effective relief for chronic, advanced joint pain, stiffness and inflammation – naturally. This was perfect for me because my back pain has been an ongoing, long term issue. Made with Biovaflex®, natural eggshell membrane, and fermented organic turmeric, a natural anti-inflammatory, its formula improves mobility and range of motion. I’ve been taking it for more than 5 days now and see an immediate improvement in the way my back is feeling – so much so that I had to share this with you all!

Between seeing the chiropractor 2x a month (used to be 3x a week!), using the FAST jointcare+ with fermented turmeric and training with Tosh Johnson, I’m definitely on the road to recovery! I’ll keep you all posted!

Cilque your way to comfort!

2017 was the year of ‘hygge’, a Danish word that literally means ‘being cozy and content’. As we’re now transitioning into fall and winter, I’ve been looking for ways to elevate my bedroom and sleep experience and recently went through a slight revamp of my bedroom with Cilque – a luxe 100% silk bedding brand based in Toronto. From the Kardashians to Gwyneth Paltrow, I’ve heard a lot of buzz about the positives of using silk sheets and pillow cases instead of cotton but hadn’t experienced them… until now.

For one, silk is very kind to my hair. Since the fabric is so smooth, my hair doesn’t get caught in the material and my blowouts and hairstyles last way longer – major time and money saver. Bye-bye forever, bedhead! The silk has also been working wonders for my skin. Unlike cotton, silk doesn’t crease and in turn prevents creases and lines from forming on my face while I sleep. In the long run, silk pillowcases promote anti-aging and prevent wrinkles – yes, please! How many of you have gone to bed and woken up with a brand new spot on your face before an important meeting, date, or on your birthday?!?! I sure have. In comparison to cotton, silk retains barely any dust and dirt particles and it has seriously reduced the number of breakouts I’ve been experiencing.

Overall, I have had nothing but positive and pleasantly surprising experiences with sleeping on silk. Plus, it’s added such a lush vibe to my room! Switching to silk sheets has been an incredibly luxurious experience, and a major investment in the quality of my sleep! Balancing two full-time gigs means I’ve come to really value my beauty sleep, and Cilque has helped me to do just that.

Summer might be ending, but that doesn’t mean you still can’t indulge in a healthy summer inspired meal when you’re on the go! Wendy’s, one of my favourite fast food restaurants, came out with a new summer salad called Strawberry Mango Chicken Salad, which is so so yummy! I mean, we all know that they’re always ahead of the game when it comes to their menu, so I am always up for trying their latest meals. They are always on the ball with new tasty salads of the season to keep us intrigued, and coming back for more.

Nowadays, our lifestyles are always go, go, go… especially for me! If I’m not working, I’m either meeting up with friends and family or attending events; It doesn’t stop! With that said, I don’t have time to make food for myself, but I also want to make sure I eat healthy. So, instead of grabbing a burger and fries, why not opt for a tasty salad! We all know how bland most fast food restaurants’ salads are, but Wendy’s took theirs to a whole new level. Thier latest, Strawberry Mango Chicken Salad, is actually one of my faves right now! It’s made with crisp lettuce, ripe strawberries, and mango! They paired it with crumbled feta cheese, sunflower seeds, and chicken, that is prepared and hand cut daily! SO YUM!

In Canada, Wendy’s is known by for serving top quality salads and the new Strawberry Mango salad is the perfect, healthy choice for customers,” says Lisa Deletroz, Marketing Director Wendy’s Canada. “Fresh lettuce and ripe strawberries are hand-cut in-restaurant daily – most other places simply don’t take the time to do that. The sliced strawberries, sweet mangoes and freshly grilled chicken create a deliciously different flavour combination for the summer.

Make sure you try their Strawberry Mango Chicken Salad! I promise…you won’t be disappointed! 😉

The new Microsoft Surface Pro

Being on-the-go almost every day of the week, with a full-time job, and my other full-time job, my blog, I need the convenience of working not just at the office or at home, but anywhere. It wasn’t until recently when I got the chance to experience my creative side on the new Surface Pro, which is both, a computer and tablet. Cool combo, right?! This light-weight, chic device conveniently fits in my bag, without feeling too heavy or bulky, which helps make my travels easy!

Having both options, a computer and a tablet allows me to not only do my blogging, but also get my creative side going. You can work on multiple projects all at once – talk about taking multi-tasking to the next level! I can easily write a blog post, and then move on to a presentation without any trouble. This convenience helps get my work done quickly and efficiently! I mean, what else can a girl who’s always on the go ask for, right?!

The new Surface Pro has the ability to run large programs such as Adobe, one that I’m a big fan of, so that’s a huge time saver for me! I also learned that the newest version lasts 50% longer than the older models, which adds 5-6 hours. Plus, it has Intel Core i5 7th Gen Core built inside it, which means it works much faster! It also has high contrast and low glare, which makes it easier for me to get through the day without straining my eyes – I don’t feel as tired as I normally would after being on the computer.

I wasn’t so big on the artsy side until I got to play around with a few applications, such as: Paint Tool Sai, Photoshop CS6, MediaBang and Sketchbook Pro for Tablet – all worked really great!

The Surface Pen has improved on the sensor, which makes it easier to create images using many different pen settings like paint brush, chalk, pencil and much more! The cursor is always below the tip so you don’t have to worry if your pen is on an angle or not.

Overall, I am pretty impressed with both the artistic side and performance. I would totally recommend the new Surface Pro!
