We Love | Autumn 22
Michael Keaton stars in this gripping miniseries that follows the lives of characters dealing with the addictive effects of painkiller, OxyContin – promoted to doctors as ‘non-addictive’. A must- watch, raw and gritty look behind America’s opioid epidemic.
With a fruity, tart yet sweet flavour, served hot or cold, this tea is an incredible remedy to boost the immune system, thanks to its amazing vitamin and antioxidant properties.

Nothing better for those cooler seasons ahead. Weighted blankets evenly distribute weight throughout the fabric which stimulates a calming effect, resulting in deeper sleep cycles. Think of it as a hug for your whole body. They have been proven to alleviate anxiety and help comfort and calm people with autism and PTSD. The “grounding” feeling creates a safe and comfortable place for anyone to wind-down and enjoy a restful night’s sleep.
We love Simone – youtuber, inventor, robot enthusiast, dog lover and all-round entertainer. The self- proclaimed “Queen of Shitty Robots” made famous by her “Toothbrush Helmet” invention, now focuses on more practical inventions that often include her dog, Scraps. A notable video that combines all of Simone’s quirks is the “I Built a Dog Selfie Booth Using LEGO Bricks” – go find it, you won’t regret it.
Time for a change of scene? This TikTok trend gives you a view of the world without having to leave your bed. In a dark room, set up a projector and face it towards a blank wall, select any of the “fake window” projection videos available on YouTube and you’ll be set for up to 10 hours – from a Toronto high-rise, to a rainy forest night, or a tropical storm. Great for relaxing or meditation.
Real Fruit Ice Cream
Step aside summer, we’ve decided to make ice-cream a year-round Kiwiana staple, particularly if it’s made from real fruit. These ice-cream stands are popping up on roadsides wherever you go – drawn in like moths to a flame, why wouldn’t we? They’ve got fruit in them, so it must be good for you, right?
