September Reads 2017 Part One

Well September has not been as crazy of a reading month as I hoped, but I’d say it’s been quality over quantity because I have read some excellent books so far this month!

August Reads 2017 Part Two

While the second half of August wasn’t nearly as intense reading-wise as the first half (check out part one of my roundup here), I’m still happy with my reading overall! I mean, this is a total of 17 books, which is likely my highest of the year. I am pretty annoyed at myself for how […]

Take the Dyson #PurifierChallenge

Sport Chek at the Halifax Shopping Centre

Living in a fairly rural area I definitely jump at the opportunity to visit the “big city” (ie: Halifax) and do some shopping. Add in some blogger buddies and a new store opening? Even better. That’s why I was so thrilled to attend blogger opening festivities for the Sport Chek at the Halifax Shopping Centre. […]
