    Trying Hemp Oil For Anxiety (Review)

    So I tried using hemp oil for my anxiety when I was back in Kenya and tried it once more when I came to Canada. Here are my thoughts about hemp oil for anxiety/insomnia. Just a heads up these are my thoughts and how my body/brain reacted to the hemp oil so it may be subjective. Pros Reduced anxiety– It definitely did reduce my anxiety. After using it for about 3-5 days I noticed a decrease of anxiety, however, not a complete disappearance of the anxiety though- just a decrease. Even after using it for a few weeks it was only a decrease in the anxiety. Better sleep– It definitely…

    Royal Dosa Hut Review

    Recently I found out about this place in Niagara called Royal Dosa Hut which is a vegetarian restaurant that offers mostly south Indian food. I was super excited because there aren’t a lot of vegetarian/vegan Indian restaurants in the area although there are a few with vegan/vegetarian options. It’s pretty far from where I live so I hadn’t found time to go there due to my busy schedule last semester but I finally decided to try it out today before my winter break ends and here is the full review of how it went! So obviously like any millennial I looked at their menu and reviews online and saw that…

    The Concord Hotel

    This is another place in Nairobi that I really enjoy going to. It’s so beautiful and as soon as you walk in you’re surrounded by beautiful artwork! Then there are beautiful areas both on the first and second floor where you can have food and drinks. It’s all open so you can look at the beautiful view around while enjoying your meal. There’s a lovely swimming pool area where you can relax and take a dip! It’s right next to the gym in case you feel like working out later! If you are ever in Nairobi I would definitely recommend you check out this amazing place with friendly staff members, good…

    DusitD2

    As you guys know I’ve been back in Nairobi for a while and I thought I would explore a little and go see some new places I’ve never been to before. This post is actually coming in a little late because we visited the place like 3 weeks ago. Anyway we decided to first check out the Rouge Deck which is by far the coolest place I’ve been to recently! It’s located in DusitD2 which is actually a hotel but has a lot of cool things too! They have a red pool and there’s a sitting area in the pool- like right in it- which is why it’s called the Rouge Deck! That was a really…

    My 2016 Favorites!!!

    So it’s almost the end of the year and I really wanted to share some of the things I really enjoyed this year! My 5 Favorite Books Of 2016:  The Unknown Ego– this book is about the Freudian theory of the ego and how it effects behavior. It explains from a psychodynamic approach how human behavior is effected by the by our earlier experiences in life. I would not really encourage everyone to read it but I would encourage anyone who is interested in psychology, especially the psychodynamic approach, to check this book out. I’m still barely starting to learn psychology but since I want to become a therapist I thought…

    My February Favourites

    February was a pretty fun month and I thought I would share some of my favorite books and music from that month. Books “She smokes like a chimney, drinks like a fish and dresses like her mother” Bridget Jones’s Diary by Helen Fielding- this book is eccentric, hilarious, crazy and fun. It may not be a literary classic but everyone needs to read this book at least once. It’s about a woman, Bridget, who is concerned about dying alone and being eaten by her dogs. In her desperation she ends up with a flirty, player and snubs a genuinely sweet man. The story consists of her figuring her life out…

    Book Review: Bridget Jones’s Diary

    *Warning: Contains Spoilers* “I like you very much, just as you are” I had been meaning to read Bridget Jones’s Diary by Helen Fielding for a while now and I finally just got a chance to read it. Well I have a small confession to make- I haven’t finished the whole book yet because I had to revise for a history test I had today but I am almost done so I decided to write the review anyway. Bridget Jones is a very, very relatable character who is mildly obsessed with her co-worker Daniel, smokes too much and has some self-esteem problems. She has a sort of out of control…

    T.V Show Review: Jessica Jones

    *Warning: Contains Spoilers* “A big part of the job is looking for the worst in people. Turns out I excel at that.” I started watching Jessica Jones last Friday and have been absolutely obsessed with it ever since. I have literally told everyone I know to watch it because it is the most amazing show I’ve ever seen. Marvel never seems to disappoint and Jessica Jones is evidence of that. Jessica Jones is a Netflix original series that revolves around the life of Jessica Jones a sort of anti-hero. She is extremely introverted and has barely any friends at the beginning. We also see that she has superhuman strength and…

    Book Review: And Baby Makes Two

    *Warning: Contains Spoilers* “Getting what you want is only the beginning.” I finally read And Baby Makes Two by Dyan Sheldon. This mildly light hearted yet extremely realistic and hard hitting books is one of my favorites. Dyan Sheldon has a way of connecting with her audience and really being able to describe a teenage mind and life. This book is about a fifteen year old girl, Lana, who makes some seriously bad decisions and ends up going through a much deserved hard time. Unlike most books to do with teenagers this isn’t a love story, it doesn’t make teenagers look like deep, misunderstood young adults and it isn’t afraid…
