Who wants a clean home!? (Raises both hands) Who wants a clean home with GREEN products!? (Raises arms and legs) Ladies and gents, I am the QUEEN of clean. Seriously, ask anyone who knows me super well…aka my husband. It isn’t just neat-and-tidy-Sammie, it’s neat-tidy-and-SPICK-AND-SPAN-Sammie. But really, a clean home is just the best, in my honest opinion. What’s better than tidiness and a clean surface?! (Okay..I’ll calm down.)

Pinner Test: Food Intolerance Testing + Results

Back in February I decided I needed to take some sort of a test to see which foods I was intolerant to. It had been almost 6 years since I had last been tested and the body changes quite a bit in just a year alone…so, it was time. I did a bit of research and finally landed on Pinner Test, one of the most accurate at-home Food Intolerance Testing Kits. I mean, if I don’t have to leave home to go to some creepy building to get blood tests, AND it’s still accurate, count me in! (Jk about the creepy building..maybe haha.) On February 6th, I received my Pinner Test and went straight to testing this bad boy out. I’m sure all of you are keen to know about how this whole ordeal went…right? Well, before we get into that, let’s chat about what Pinner Test is and how it works.

I am so excited to be debuting this new series that I will be featuring on my blog every so often called “Inspiring Interviews“. I’ve always been so intrigued, impressed and completely inspired (see what I did there?) by what fuels the men and women in the clean beauty world – heck, in the world, period. Whether it be makeup, skincare, body care, haircare, writing, photography, music, art, fashion, health, fitness, faith and more…I want to share with everyone the amazing people I get to connect with on a daily basis! I have met some wonderful humans through social media, and sometimes I get lucky enough to meet them in real life!

Nutrition Stripped Fall Supper Film!

 

Hello again, everyone! Hope you all have been having a wonderful January!

 

I can’t even begin expressing my excitement over this incredible film from Nutrition Stripped‘s first Supper Club. Sadly, I couldn’t attend…but watching this rad video, and the hard work and preparation my talented friends Mckel, Rhian and my darling sisters Jordana and Maggie, put into this night, makes me feel like I was there – AND SO PROUD!

 

“It was just how I had dreamed up my first Supper Club to look – cozy, welcoming, warm, and elegant yet simple. Seeing all 50 guests gathered around the table, enjoying their drinks and food, was just the best feeling. We were serenaded by the incredible duo, Elenowen (hosted by Cause A Scene Music). They just topped off the evening and made it feel so special.” -Mckel Hill (read more about the night, as well as view pictures here on Nutrition Stripped’s website!)

 

 

 

 

It looked like SUCH a beautiful night captured amazingly by my insanely gifted brother Jake of Jake Colletta Films! The colours, the vibrancy, the music, the friends, the fun and THE FOOD…unbelievable. To say I’m proud would be an understatement. Well done everyone! Can’t wait for the next one!
