Back to routine…

Blog Add comments

Another summer has passed and I find myself excited to get back into the routine of yet another school year!  Kids are going back to school, summer guests have left, suitcases from summer holidays are stored away again.  Might I suggest a little pampering in the month of September? 

Playing Footsie

After a summer of sandals and beaches, give your feet a treat with Barefoot Venus’ “Playing Footsie”.  Its a wonderful Coconut Milk Foot Soak.  Let the natural source of lactic acid gently exfoliate and soften,while the soothing Epsom Salt helps calm aching feet!  This product is designed and made in Canada for $16.00

Bon Bon Bubbling Bath

Summer sun can be tough on skin!  Try a bubble bath in Tokyo Milk’s “Bon Bon Bubbling Bath”.  This stunning glass bottle, designed by Margot Elena has a beautiful image on the inside, it is a beatuiful addition to any bathroom.  Available in many different scents, Bon Bon has a combination of Crushed and Distilled Essences of Lily, Peony, Vanilla Bean and Violet Petals.  It also includes extract of Japanese Green Tea and comes in two sizes.

Hand Solution

Prepare your hands for another harsh winter with Canadian Made Cake “Milk Made Smoothing Hand and Cuticle Buffer and Velveteen Hand Creme”.  Indulge with the spa like hand buffer, specially formulated with sugar, milk proteins, avocado, and coconut oils.  This vitamin packed recipe with leave your hands and cuticles perfectly manicured and incredibly nourished!  Then treat your over worked (and under paid) hands to the rich, vitamin packed “Velveteen Hand Creme”  It is truly decadent, with mango and shea butters, whole milk and marshmallow extract!  Buffer and Creme are $18 each.

Heavenly Scent

If your idea of pampering involves layering yourself in beautiful scents, you MUST try Lollia’s “Wish” .  It is their sugared pastille scent and it is my personal favourite.  The packaging alone is amazing, but the scent of the “Eau de Parfum” is truly perfection.  Available in many products, a few of my favourites include the Shea Butter hand creme and the authentic Lollia luminary.

Delicious Dish Soap

Why not take a mundane chore and turn it into something special…try Farmhouse Dish Soap in Lemon Verbena!  This rich, fragrant dish soap is made with plant based cleansers.   The biodegradable formula contains no harsh detergents or chemicals, it is excellent for those who have sensitive skin.  Its mixed in small batches with natural ingredients by Sweet Grass Farms in New Hampshire, where they harness the natural abilities of plant based cleansers and produce pleasant, effctive homecare products to make life easier, cleaner, and richly aromatic.  I also love their fabric softener and liquid hand soap!  The dish soap is $10 for a 500 ml bottle.

Happy September!
