Being gluten-free, it’s super hard to find healthy, quick and easy instant meals for when you’re on the go or for those days where you just don’t have enough time to make lunch. (Not only that, but for me there’s really only one place near my office where I can actually eat on those days when I don’t bring a lunch.)
Last year, I discovered Wok Fresh and Backcountry Wok at the Toronto One of a Kind show and instantly (pun not intended) became hooked. They make vegan, dehydrated meals – you just add water and go!
People who know me well know that I have two modes: a) the version of me you most often see on my blog and social media channels who tries to be fashionable, and b) the version me that is in super casual and comfy clothes, such as leggings or pjs – aka how I spend the majority of my time.
This post is about that second version of me.
So much of what we see on social media these days are the highlight reels, and I am no exception to this fact. There are days where as soon as I’m done shooting content my make-up is off and I’m back in sweats. There are also days where I don’t even bother to leave my pyjamas. If I’m being totally honest, these are my favourite days.
It’s also the first thing I do when I get home from work too – toss my hair up and throw on some comfy clothes!
It’s no secret that I love my Cricut machine. If you don’t know what a Cricut machine is, you are seriously missing out. They are writing, scoring and personal cutting machines that work with a wide variety of materials. I’m talking everything from paper, vinyl, adhesive foil, craft foam, iron-on transfers, window cling and more. In the past, I’ve made everything from iron-on shirts and pillows, gift cards, customized wine glasses, decanters, mugs, coasters, party banners and more. The crafting-possibilities really are endless with a Cricut machine. (Basically it’s magic.)
I upgraded to the Cricut Maker about a year ago, and my only regret was not upgrading sooner. I always get a lot of questions on Instagram and from friends, family and colleagues about my Cricut – everything from “which machine do I need if I’m thinking about buying one”, to “what can it make” and “is it really worth upgrading to the Maker”.
With the holidays approaching, I thought I’d share some of my favourite things about the Maker!
