HEALTH FOOD STORE REVIEW: WELLNESS SHOPPE

HEALTH FOOD STORE REVIEW: WELLNESS SHOPPE

Wellness Shoppe is a cozy health food store located in the south end of Sudbury (1769 Regent St.).  This store carries all your basics to start on your health journey and some pretty cool specialty products I came across.  I was able to easily make my way through the store in about 15 minutes, which is very rare for me, as everything was very well organized.  There is a supplements section, food/snacks section, freezer at the back filled with gluten-free items, fridge at the front, and some neat lunch box idea items. Here is my list of some must...

Willing to Fail

Willing to Fail

I know you’re going to find this hard to believe but when I was 2 years old I was riding a bike without training wheels. I don’t remember any of this, but the way my mom tells the story is that I would run beside the bike and when it picked up an appropriate amount of speed I would jump on the seat and cruise around the mean street I grew up on. Actually it was a crescent, Chestnut Crescent to be precise. I promise I’m not taking this opportunity (just) to brag, although I do think it’s pretty...

Northern Axperts bring axe-citing new sport to Sudbury.

Northern Axperts bring axe-citing new sport to Sudbury.

Calling all Lumberjacks and Lumberjills, Sudbury finally has the perfect place for axe-wielding, plaid-adorning fun. Northern Axperts officially opened last Thursday, March 2nd in the back of Peddler’s Pub on Cedar St. downtown. The new game brings an exciting edge to entertainment in Sudbury. The sport is kind of like darts but more “bad-axe”. Essentially, you grab onto an axe, throw it straight ahead and hopefully end with a successful thud into the boards lined with targets. When playing the game in competition each hit will allow you points. Games consist of five throws in a game and three...

STEDMAN GRAHAM: AN UNSUNG FEMINIST HERO

STEDMAN GRAHAM: AN UNSUNG FEMINIST HERO

I’m going to make a radical statement here: Stedman Graham is a feminist hero. First of all you’re probably wondering who this Stedman guy is, just the partner to one of the most powerful women alive – Oprah Winfrey. But a man, a feminist? That’s right feminism is a one size fits all term and maybe the only club you can get into with just one question: Do you believe all people should be treated equally? Congratulations, you’re in! But let’s not loose sight of the man of the hour. As any boss lady knows it can be tough...

OUR #WCW FOR INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY

OUR #WCW FOR INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY

Who run the world? Girls! Women, today is your day! It’s been a tough year, paying witness to world events and specifically the 2016 presidential election – its pretty clear we have a long way to go correcting some peoples way of thinking. And although we could have hoped for a better turn out on that one what we can say for sure is the process really shone a light on some of the backwards views the world has about women and really called a gender into action. But this isn’t a day to get down about the inequalities...
