The Dyson DC77 Multi Floor is a multi floor vacuuming dream machine. I recently welcomed the Dyson DC77 in to my home and in to my life. This is the kind of vacuum that doesn’t have me dreading “vacuum day” each week. As the days get longer and there are more sunny days in the forecast, …

This is the perfect time of year to relax in a warm bath tub or take an extra long shower. Giving my best friends and mom gifts to help them unwind and focus on themselves solely for a bit seems absolutely spot-on to me. I bet you know some lovely ladies who’d appreciate some self-care treats for Valentine’s Day, too. 
Give your friends and family lovely self-care love this Valentine's Day! Check out my post for 3 ways to do so.

It’s grey outside. Grim is another word to describe it. Today and for many more months to come. Even though we don’t get tons of snow and storms like other places in Canada and the USA do, rain, rain, and more rain is seriously depressing. Or, when there’s no rain, there’s always “overcast” meaning there’s …

As we start a new year, it’s easy to get lost in all the planning, resolution-making and excitement about the year ahead of us. There are so many lessons that can be learnt from last year, and even more special memories that should be cherished. In an effort to not let the years all blur together, I like to do a few things to celebrate the previous year every January. Do you have any traditions around celebrating special moments in your life? I would love to hear them!

Here are just 3 easy things you can do to celebrate the best moments of last year:

Three Things I’m Letting go of in the New Year

As we head in to the New Year, I’ve been laying out my calendar for the next year and filling out planning worksheets. I started by filling in some of the adventures I plan on going on/experiencing and then some of the programs I’ll be launching in my Whirligig Social business. In order to add in more (fun/adventure/business launches), it’s necessary to remove things from my life that are no longer serving me.

I often think about rebranding - I mean, my traffic isn't huge, so it wouldn't be a terrible idea to change from Being Tazim to. . .not sure what!

This post is about 3 things I want to do more of this year. Setting the intention and putting it out there publicly really solidifies my goal.

I just finished reading Smartcuts by Shane Snow, so I am totally open to the benefits of video games :).
There's another great book to add to your list :)

The first juicer I ever used was a screaming behemoth, by the time I lifted it onto the counter, had my veg ready and flicked the switch, I was already a bit daunted. And then, what seemed like a dozen carrots later, as I enjoyed my half-cup of juice, I tried to smile and really enjoy it, because I knew I would be spending the next half-hour cleaning up the mess I’d made procuring it. I’m sorry giant juicer—it just didn’t work out. I returned it, and while I still really liked the idea of juicing, I felt like the whole process just wasn’t for me.

Which is why I was a little skeptical when I unpacked my juicepressonofollow (Which is a pretty clever name for a product, I think). I hefted him up onto the counter, and checked him out for a while. I decided I liked the cut of his jib—a design that makes him look like the offspring of a blender and a Dalek—the robotic-trash-can monster from Doctor Who. We made friends as I “assembled” him, by which I mean, popping the drum on the base, popping the ‘extractor’ into the drum, and putting the hopper on the top.

It was easy enough, so I gave juicing another whirl—and I’ve come to three conclusions:

1 The other juicers I’ve used have been glorified blenders, with bladed attachments that use high speed to attack fruit and veg and to swish it against a sieve—the juicepresso is a ‘masticating’ juicer, and takes its time. A screw valve catches the fruit or veg and works away at it, slowly grinding and squeezing out the juice. The whole process isn’t noticeably slower, but it is quieter. Much quieter.

2 And less violent. juicepresso and other masticating juice extractors say that using a slow, cold extraction method means less lost nutrients and taste—it’s like the difference between cold pressed virgin olive oil, and the clear discount stuff. What I’ve noticed is that the taste of the juice is incredible—rich and full, without being pulpy or gross.
I also get a lot less of what the pros call ‘pulp’ and what I call squidgey gunk with this juicer than with any other I’ve tried. For me, this is a big deal, because it means I’m throwing away less expensive produce.

3 Cleaning it isn’t so bad—if I remember to do it right away! There are two big improvements in cleaning the juicepressonofollow over others I’ve tried. 
In all, I’m really happy with the juicepresso, and I’m going to be adding it to my morning routine.
