skin food


I thought I would share my thought on Weleda's Skin Food. This is a universal I'm gonna say balm. It relieves dryness anywhere from head to toe. I have used this on my face, hands, feet, elbows and knees (on my kids and husband). It's very thick and oily (it's base is made up of oils and beeswax) so I don't really use it on my hands during the day because it does leave your hands oily rather I use it when I go to bed (feet and hands). The smell is 'natural' if you know what I mean, which I love.

Skin Food is free from synthetic fragrances, colourants, preservatives or raw materials from mineral oils.

INCI: Water (Aqua), Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Lanolin, Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil, Beeswax (Cera Alba), Alcohol, Polyglyceryl-3 Polyricinoleate, Glycerin, Limonene*, Viola Tricolor Extract, Fragrance (Parfum)*, Hydrolyzed Beeswax, Sobitan Olivate, Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Extract, Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract, Calendula Officinalis Flower Extract, Arginine, Zinc Sulfate, Linalool*, Geraniol*, Citral*, Coumarin*. * from natural essential oils

I've lost count on how many times I've repurchased this (I buy mine at Muller). It's a must have and I highly recommend you give it a try. :)

friday favourites

I'm so ready for spring and I think this Friday favourites reflects this. 

Spring is around the corner and I'm needing to do some major spring cleaning and organizing!
I so need to organize my desk and work area and keep it pretty at the same time since it's in our living room.

Gorgeous wrapping. Great way to use up scraps of pattern paper.

Ah donuts! Sigh. You are never too old for sprinkles.

Vapour multi sticks are on my wish list and this photo is so pretty (love the gold glittery nails).

I wanted to share some photos of this gorgeous Zasu bracelet my bff gifted me for my birthday.
Zasu jewelry is made up of semi precious stones, lava and rudraksha beads. This gorgeous brand is Croatian, they ship worldwide (free shipping for Croatia) and they are super friendly too.

 My bracelet is called Archangel Jophiel who is the archangel of wisdom, understanding, and judgment. The energy this braclete gives is creativity, love and courage. Whether you believe in the energy of precious stones or not, you have to admit they make for beautiful jewelery. :)

I love that they offer different sizes (mine is a small).

As you can see below you can chooose between lava and rudraksha beads and I'm gonna have to get myself one with lava beads too.

These two are on my wish list.

I love my bracelet. Thank you Suzi!

tumeric giner tea

I want to share my favourite tea. I found it on the Joyous Health blog here. I love Joy and her blog!

It's such an easy way to drink up the health benefits of tumeric, ginger, cinnamon and coconut oil.

You'll need:

2 cups boiling water
1/4 teaspoon tumeric powder
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 tablespoon coconut oil or coconut butter
1 teaspoon honey

Add the boiling water, tumeric powder, ground ginger, cinnamon and coconut oil into the blender and blend. Strain and add honey. Sometimes I add a little milk.

You can find the full recipe and video here.
I LOVE it! It's so spicy and warm!

friday favourites

Friday Favourites on a Saturday...it is what it is! :) My blog is pretty dead and it's mostly because I don't have a camera and my cell phone (which is what I take all my photos with) is not working. It's time to get a new on....I won't even say which model I have because your jaw will hit the ground. What can I say I'm not a techy person....at all. So I'm leaving it up to my husband to pick a phone for me and when I get it I hope to blog regularily.

So as you can see with these rosy favourites, it's all about Valentine's Day which fyi I'm having a sale which starts tomorrow!

On to my favs!

I'll be making cupcakes for Valentine's day. Who doesn't love cupcakes....it's all kinds of happy and yum!

I prefer pink over red.

I never wear runners but these are adorable!

I can't remember the last time my home looked this clean and I've pretty much given up trying. ;)

jane's doodles blog hop + giveaway + 20% off

Hello and welcome to another Jane's Doodles blog hop!
I want to apologize. I'm waiting for my new cell phone to arrive (mine doesn't work, can't take photos, send messages, etc.) and I don't have a camera belive it or not. I found an old cell phone and used the camera but the photos turned out horrible so I'll only share one card until I can retake the photos and share them at a later date.

We're showcasing 3 new sets!

I want to take moment to share how important and personal this set is to me. I have fear. I fear about all the what if's. Where did this come from? I had a stressful up bringing and probably this fear is a result of this.  My highschool art teacher always told me to stop being afraid (with my artwork), I didn't understand what she meant but I do now. This set is a reminder for me.

So on to my card (which again I apologize for the bad photos).

This is a card I already blogged but I need to put up a decent photo! :)

As with every blog hop I'm giving away a stamp set (winner choice) and 20% off all clear stamp sets. Also You Got This sold out but is available for pre order. Please keep in mind if you order this set along with other sets that are available I will ship your order once You Got It comes in.

Unfortunately some of my design team members are still waiting for their stamps to arrive so they will not be apart of this blog hop. :(


Have fun hopping!
