DIY Eco-Friendly Wedding Decor

“Every girl has her best friend, boyfriend, and true love. But you’re really lucky if they’re all the same person”


Ever since oh so hesitantly activating my Pinterest account a couple of years ago, I admittedly have become a bit of a self-proclaimed “DIY demon”. Not that I have, or will, ever reach a “Martha Stewart” level of craftiness, I have undoubtedly developed quite the penchant for all things involving glue guns. So with wedding season upon us, I thought it would be more than appropriate to share three, insanely adorable Eco-friendly, DIY crafts that are perfect for the Big Day! (more…)

Making it Happen: DIY Vision Boards

“Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts”

Winston Churchill

Adult crafting, colouring & scrap-booking seem to be all anyone can talk about these days…. & I am positively LOVING it! Besides the fact that this new trend presents the most perfect opportunity to embrace my inner child, all of these activities can be extremely therapeutic!!! At least they have been para MOI! However there’s one trend that’s always intrigued me, yet I’ve never actually tried… vision boards! I’m generally more of a visual person so I love the idea that vision boards transform your goals into an actual, tangible “entity”! Here’s a quick peak into my 2016 vision board & how you can make your very own! (more…)

Roundup: Eco-Friendly Christmas Decor

“Deck the halls with boughs of holly, Fa la la la la la la la la!”

John Ceiriog Hughes

This weekend I channeled my inner Martha Stewart in a MAJOR way & made some ridiculously cute Eco-friendly Christmas decor! With a glass of vino in one hand & glue gun in the other (please don’t try that at home), I crafted my way through what my university self would have surely described as an incredibly dull Saturday evening… however “mature” me absolutely LOVED it!!! Read on for three Eco-friendly Christmas Decorations & the inspirations behind them!

Sweet Like Honey: DIY Honey Infusions

“A day without a friend is like a pot without a single drop of honey”

Winnie the Pooh

Bring on the chestnuts, tacky tinsel & ugly sweaters because holiday season is fast approaching people!! I can already hear those sleigh bells a ‘ringing. I love all things associated with the holidays, but I especially love all of the accompanying seasonal flavours! In my opinion food is absolutely synonymous with the holidays & one of my favourite “cold weather” beverages happens to be hot water with lemon & honey. However this year, I wanted to give it more of a festive twist! ENJOY!  (more…)

Windowsill Mason Jar Herbs

“There are no gardening mistakes, only experiments”

Janet Kilburn Phillips

 Welcome friends to my very first gardening experience… EVER! Yes, I’m giving the whole “green thumb” thing a go & I couldn’t be more excited about my brand new endeavour. Side Note: I’m also completely aware that perhaps November may not be the best time to test out the ol’ gardening skills, however I’m up for the challenge & I hope that you guys are too! So without further adieu… here’s my journey toward [successfully] attempting windowsill mason jar herbs!   (more…)

Pumpkin Decorating Ideas

“Dear Great Pumpkin. I’m looking forward to your arrival on Halloween night”

Linus in It’s the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown

Every year up at the cottage, our family friends host a pumpkin carving contest over Thanksgiving weekend. I’ve therefore developed a pretty strong passion for all things pumpkin carving… or lack thereof! With Halloween fast approaching, I wanted to share a few of these super fun & creative ideas with you guys today! Some involve a bit of carving while others are completely non-carve! ALSO, if you do happen to try out some of these DIY projects, use the hashtag “HHHpumpkin” to get featured on our Instagram page: @healthyhappyandhilarious  (more…)

Thanksgiving Leftovers… DIY Pumpkin Face Mask

“Be thankful for what you have. Your life, no matter how bad you think it is, is someone else’s fairy-tale”

Wale Ayeni

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!! I hope that you’re all having an incredible weekend celebrating with friends & loved ones… I know I sure am! We’ve escaped up North to the family cottage for this oh so festive holiday & I couldn’t be happier or more relaxed. But if you’re anything like my family, we tend to have a TON of leftovers after the weekend so this year, I tried to get a little creative with the canned pumpkins & make a DIY face mask! ENJOY!  (more…)

Fabulous Face Masks

“People sometimes need to laugh, relax, and not take themselves so seriously”

– Jones Loflin

So as you know, this month we’re all about embracing vacation mode & everything that comes with it… particularly the whole relaxation side of things! Which in my opinion is the absolute MOST important part! I mean what’s a vacation without a little relaxation am I right?! Thus far we’ve covered some of our favourite vacation reads & relaxing bath products, so today we thought we’d go over another vacation essential… face masks! Holistic Nutritionist Connie Linton & I have put together a short list of some of our personal, favourite products/masks & have arranged them according to price (from highest to lowest). ENJOY! (more…)

Train the Brain

“My Brain is Experiencing Technical Difficulties.. Please Stand By”

– Anonymous

I feel like this quote perfectly encompasses my feelings while writing this post… seriously try making sudoku & Lumosity sound like cute, fun, & fresh blog material… IT’S HARD! But truth be told, I actually had so much fun delving into the world of Lumosity & other brain-busting teasers (probably a little too much fun actually) & I’m excited to share my experiences with you! I’ve also included some budget friendly brain training exercises & a fun, creative DIY brain teaser you can gift to your friends, family, or significant other! ENJOY! (more…)
