    peer review #2

    For our second round of peer reviews, I was assigned Savannah Swatske’s blog. As seen on the homepage, Savannah’s blog is focussed on lifestyle, travel, health & wellness.  I appreciate the way in which Savannah has designed her blog. The colours that are utilized pair well with each other, and everything is organized in a way that makes sense, and is easy to navigate. I also like how her recent blog posts are available to view on the homepage.  Savannah’s about me page provides a great introduction into who she is as a person, and what she is interested in. She also shares her aspirations/reasons for creating the blog.  Since…

I find that so many Instagram challenges are incredibly unattainable (do 100 squats every single day? no thanks), and this challenge by Schuster is something you will actually want to do.  This challenge asks you to do 1 nice thing a day for yourself in February. Now, you don’t need to go and buy yourself a new outfit, or get a manicure, it could be something as simple as vacuuming your…

    let’s make a snack

    Something that I have loved doing during quarantine/the COVID-19 pandemic, is cooking and baking. I wanted to find something to do when I have a break in between online classes, or when I am doing homework, that didn’t involve more screen time. So, I decided that I would go on Pinterest and get inspired to create something. Not only am I able to better my skills, but I find it to be such a relaxing activity for myself. When I’m cooking, I’m not thinking about the many things on my to-do list, or worrying about getting my assignments finished. I am completely in the zone, almost in a sort of…
