My Winter Skincare Products


Last November I worked with Langdon Hall's Spa Director to share some winter skin care tips. I have taken much of Julie's advice and have been trying out different products to help my dry skin. Today I am happy to report that I have found quite a few winter skincare products that work for me, so I thought I would share with all of you!

Icy Conditions


Turtleneck | Blazer (old, similar)| Jeans | Trench (similar) | Boots | Bag (Purchased here) | Sunnies | Gloves | Necklace | Lipstick

These icy conditions are no joke! All buses were cancelled in our area which meant a snow day for my boys and a work from home day for me (which also meant The Oldest and I could run out to take photos at lunch time!)

#Canada150Project


I have some pretty exciting news to share. Are you ready for it? This year marks Canada's 150th birthday so I am committing to sharing with all of you 150 people, places and things that make Canada, well, Canada! I'm so excited because this is a project I have had in the works for a few months now and it all started with Parks Canada offering free admission to national parks in 2017.

So Long 2016...and Hello 2017!

Last year was all about balancing the ups and the downs (and laughing at Spotify's "Thanks 2016, It's been weird" campaign). Luckily in 2016 I had many more ups than downs and as I look through my blog archive, it reminds me just how great a year it really was! A few of my 2016 highlights:

Country Christmas at the Waterloo Region Museum




Last weekend we had some grand plans to have our whole family join us to experience Country Christmas at the Waterloo Region Museum and Doon Heritage Village but thanks to a round of snow storms and a few colds, the group was scaled back to me, AMH and my fellow adventurer in blogging, White Cabana! While I feel bad that our family was digging out or nursing a cold, I didn't feel bad for long as we had an incredible morning celebrating a variety of Christmas traditions!

#CTLCookieExchange - Gingerbread People


I selected this week's #CTLCookieExchange, gingerbread people, because at the end of last week, I was off to a cookie exchange with some of my favourite people for our first annual cookie exchange. My original intention was to create gingerbread people that can hang off your mug and I thought I could just modify a regular gingerbread cutter for that. You can tell I'm not an engineer. After a few batches of trying to hook one arm of the dough, I realized (thanks Google) that there are cookie cutters for just the purpose. Oh well, there's always next year. But all was not lost! I continued on and made some of the cutest gingerbread people that sprinkles and icing could make.
