affect health Friday finds

It's Friday... and I have some finds! 

I know it's been a few weeks since my last Friday Finds so I thought we were due for another dive into the deep OCEAN OF THE INTERNET for some treasures.  Enjoy!


1.  StyleLikeU - Dispelling Beauty Myths 

As you may already know here at Affect Health we are all about celebrating people living healthier happier lives.  A big part of that is our stance on unrealistic expectations of beauty and weight.  In our world saturated with photoshop, unrealistic beauty ideals, and cookie cutter advertisements this was a refreshing channel to find.  

StyleLikeU is "a mother-daughter team leading a movement that empowers people to accept and express their true selves" aka AWESOME. I love how they celebrate unique style and individuality with well chosen questions and discussion in their videos.  Here is one of my fav's: 


2. My featured article - Get Leashed

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of being interviewed by the awesome team at Get Leashed Magazine.  The shoot was SO fun and I ended up being covered in tuna because my cats wanted nothing to do with me the whole time (super glam I know). The result was a sneak peek into my life as a plant enthusiast, cat lady, and entrepreneur with some pics of my Toronto apartment!

3. DIY Marble Mugs

How awesome are these?! Via the glorious world of Pinterest I stumbled upon DIYcandy's rendition of DIY nail polish mugs that is super easy and makes such a great gift idea.  I love the inky water colour patterns that you can make.  I'm thinking about trying some gold/metallics on some matter black mugs I found from a thirst shop - I'll keep you posted!

All you need is four things: 

  • Mugs
  • Nail Polish (stay away from quick dry!)
  • Toothpicks
  • Container (This will get ruined so make sure it’s old or disposable.)

Read the full tutorial HERE. 

4. Clean out your inbox with: Unrollme  

If you are like me you have over 189 e-mail subscriptions that you are constantly forgetting to unsubscribe from (that movie is my actual subscriptions list).  I am a true enthusiast for initially signing up but then can quickly become unengaged if the content doesn't continue to interest me.  A friend showed me this awesome site that helps you get a visual on EVERY SINGLE subscription you have and quickly helps you manage those subscriptions.




Happy Friday everyone! xo

Summer is here and I could not be happier! As the temperature heats up in Toronto, I find myself turning more and more to iced matcha vs. my regular traditional hot cup every morning.

If you've never tried matcha iced, what better way to cool off than with a refreshing glass of citrus-cool, energy packed matcha?
