Macaroni Pasta Salad Recipe Ft. Barilla Pasta

I've been really wishing for summer weather as the days here in Toronto have been super cold (where did that snow come from?!). Hey Mother Nature, I thought it was supposed to be Spring already!! Despite the snow, I've been trying to stay positive and make my favourite summer dish: pasta salad! All of those delicious flavours always work out so well and are a perfect addition to any BBQ or potluck get together. Ever since I was young, I've always gravitated toward pasta salads and this macaroni pasta salad is no different! Made from corn and rice, this gluten-free pasta from Barilla doesn't taste much different than regular durum wheat semolina. Since I wanted something fresh and out-of-the-box, I made a macaroni pasta salad and the results were fantastic! Seriously though... look at that beauty!!

Firmoo Glasses Review

I've been wearing glasses for the past few years and had been wearing old metal frames that weren't really showing off my personality. I was recently contacted by Firmoo to review a pair of their glasses to try out. Since I need my glasses for distance and only wear them when necessary, I figured I'd test out a pair.

Smooth Wax Bar Review + Discount!

Usually in the dead of winter, people get lazier than normal and fall out of their regular routines. I'm definitely one of them! I visited Smooth Wax Bar last week and I'm so thankful I did. At first, I was worried that the waxing would hurt as I'm more of a DIY kinda gal and have only experienced at-home waxing kits (they hurt!). But to my surprise, my full leg wax treatment was actually around 80% less pain than using wax strips from the drugstore, I kid you not!
