Where’s the Ramen?-Gluten Free Style

Lets talk about ramen! We like ramen, whether from a restaurant or going into our pantry for making it at home. It is really a comfort food. A problem though is the most common ingredients in ramen is wheat, which doesn’t work in a gluten intolerant household. But we are always on the lookout for gluten free products around here, so when we found a gluten free Ramen at Costco we had to try it. The Product: Lotus Foods Organic Millet and Brown Rice Ramen. This product is gluten free, vegan and organic. Now according to their website FAQ it […]

Want an Ice, Cold YETI?

Everybody has that one travel mug they take with them everywhere and on every trip (even if its just to the store…) And each one has a story behind it that makes it special. I have mine, but recently I came into possession of a YETI brand 30oz (884ml) tumbler and I decided to test it out to see if it could top my favourite travel mug… The Bad:Something I learned the hard (but funny) way was that the lid isn’t spill/leak proof. Quick research shows that this is something YETI actually mentions in their descriptions, basically as I see […]

Buying Iced Tea

Let’s talk about Iced Tea! This might sound a little strange but I am extremely picky when it comes to iced tea in its different forms. I like it in different ways, whether bought powdered, liquid, frozen concentrate or from a soda fountain, that to me doesn’t matter. It really comes down to my taste buds. So when it comes to powered iced tea I like Nestea Iced Tea. Plain and simple. But for some reason many of the stores in my area do not carry the original product anymore. Many are made with other sweeteners. Though these other options […]

Bath Time In a Small Tub

Lets talk about baths! I live in an apartment that has a bathtub but it’s a short tub. I like baths especially after a busy week. Or after a cold day outside, especially when it gets to minus 20 Celsius. The problem with short tubs is the overflow drain will not let you be nice and snug under those warm waters. So what do you do? Do you cover it with your foot? Do you fill the tub as high as you can and enjoy the deeper waters for a few seconds? Well there is a smarter way! You buy […]

Blue-tiful Sounds from the Amazon

Music is awesome and there’s something special about hearing your favourite song on the radio, turning up the volume, singing along as loud as you can! It can help you relax, unwind, and de-stress after the daily grind… and of course it’s even better with your own personal playlist perfectly curated on your phone or device! But what if, like yours truly, your vehicle doesn’t have Bluetooth, or an auxiliary plug, or even *gasp* a cassette deck?! Some of you may wonder what time hole my car crawled out of but I don’t doubt that there are a quite a […]

Time to Tie the Knot

There’s nothing like dressing up for an important occasion, especially your wedding. But making everything just right for your special lady and that big day can be quite stressful and finding just the right piece of clothing within your budget only adds to your anxiety. I had the suit, the shirt, the vest, the pants but I was missing a vital component… a necktie! As I searched for that polka dot tie with just the right colours I remembered a website… Cheap-Neckties.com Ties, ties, and more ties of almost every size, colour, material, and design! The best part? All are […]

Wow is that a ShamWow?

Lets talk about Shamwow. I bought my first Shamwow over 10 years ago when visiting the Calgary Stampede. I wouldn’t have called it an impulse buy but I was a little impressed at all the water it could hold, so I might have been caught up in the wonder of it. So what exactly is the Shamwow? The Shamwow is made up of viscose materials. This means it’s a type of Rayon. Rayon is made from cellulous fiber usually made from wood or other similar materials that is then processed. As mentioned, I really like the amount of water the […]

Cool Mask – Where’d ya get it?

Lets talk about masks. In this world we live in it’s the thing to have to do our everyday things. Businesses have switched gears to make and sell masks. Companies from Beanie Babies to Vista Print to Shamwow all have gotten on the bandwagon of making masks. So how do you choose? Where do you go? What about custom masks? So lets go through some key things to choose your masks and review the masks I have purchased so far. For the purpose of this article when I say masks I am referring to non-medical face coverings. For us this […]

A Great Way to Shave a Few Dollars

It’s no secret: most guys are creatures of habit, we don’t like change… So, when it comes to shaving, if we find a good razor we hold on to it for as long as we can. There’s nothing like a quality razor blade that gives you a smooth finish with no nicks or cuts. But name brand razors and their cartridges are so expensive and what if your razor blade is out of stock when you go to the store? Sure disposable razors are fine in a pinch but, personally, they are not a long-term option. Thankfully, there is another… […]
