This is a post that is long over due. Last summer, my mom and I went on a daytrip to Terre Bleu lavender farm in Campbellville, (Milton area) Ontario. I actually first learned about this place at a Facebook conference where the owner was one of the guest speakers. (For curious minds, his topic was his success with Facebook Advertising’s options for small businesses.) Ever since I saw the photos of the lavender farm I was dying to go – and lavender is my mom’s favourite, so it was a no-brainer to take the trip with her.
Last week, I had an opportunity to visit South Pond Farms in Bethany, Ontario with some other bloggers from the Toronto area. South Pond Farms is a popular spot for weddings and events and is about a half hour from Durham Region and a little over an hour from Toronto.
It’s a place that I’ve been familiar with and have always wanted to visit, so naturally I was extremely excited once I received the invite! To my surprise, I learned that the farm is actually open to the public on Tuesdays and that they also host weekly events and workshops that anyone can sign up for! (More on that later.) I was extremely happy when I found out that they can always accommodate us gluten-free folk.
You’ve heard me ramble on about Aide Bodycare many, many times before… enough to know that there never really will be a ‘last time’ ;). On my last visit to Michelle’s shop, she had a new feature that had me really excited: a DIY Bath Soak Bar.
We all know I love a good bath and DIY. So naturally, I was pretty stoked.
The Bar comes is loaded with epson and himalayan salts, tons of essential oils you can mix and play with, botanicals (I’m a big fan of the dried roses), oatmeal and more.
I’ll admit it: I’m obsessed with this product by Aide Bodycare. You’ve heard me rave about their products before and I’ve wanted to try this one ever since it came out. I’ve been using it religiously for about a month now so I thought it was about time I share it with you.
As a teenager, I never really had any problems with my skin. Flash forward to adulthood and skin problems. I have combination acne prone skin, which really breaks out before that time of the month. I’ve found it difficult deal with; I have really sensitive skin so most over the counter products don’t work, gentle prescription products weren’t effective enough, I tried to really be careful about what I ate, which again helped but didn’t solve my problems.
