Urban Moonshine


As I try to navigate getting older, I am also a lot more aware of what I put into my body.  When I hear anything about a natural remedy, I run to try it.  You read of so many scary side-effects from the medicines we are encouraged to take by doctors.  While I admit they have their values, I try to go as natural as possible.  I discovered Urban Moonshine while looking for alternatives to keeping healthy.




Crafted from exceptional blends of certified organic Vermont herbs and roots, complimented by a few worldly exotics, our digestive bitters revive the tradition of dazzling the palate while priming digestion.At Urban Moonshine we believe the root of good health is great digestion!Urban Moonshine is located on the beautiful shores of Lake Champlain in Burlington, VT. We started as a small family business at local farmers’ markets, and have grown into a thriving, nationally distributed herbal company. We specialize in organic digestive bitters and herbal tonics, formulated for accessibility, affordability, & effectiveness to support the modern lifestyle. Our blends are widely applicable, extremely safe, and delightfully palatable. We want to help you spark a revolution in your health!Our mission is to rekindle the relationship between herbal medicine and the modern world. Our goal is to inspire people to bring herbal medicine “out of the cupboard and onto the counter” in everyday life. We are pushing the envelope to make herbal medicine affordable and accessible to everyone, by creating a product line that distills the best of herbal medicine: Our formulas are safe, effective and fast-acting. They embody beauty and simplicity; and are made from the highest quality organic ingredients.

So then I was faced with the question...what exactly is a bitter?
The definition of a bitter is something that tastes bitter in flavor: dandelion, gentian, coffee, dark chocolate and greens are clas­sic bitters. Many traditional cultures around the world believe that it is important to have all 5 flavors within the diet and that each flavor has a specific effect on the body. The flavor of bitter is very much associated with the digestive system.Fast forward to modern times, as a culture we consume an immense amount of sweet, salty and processed food and we have a severe lack of bitterness. But our bod­ies are built for bitter flavors! Bitter engages and excites the digestive system. Bitter challenges the body, alerting it through taste that a complex food is being ingested, more complex than heavily processed food. It is very important for the body to have enough challenge—challenge keeps us strong, on our toes, ready for action! Bitters are like the gym for the digestive system, they help to keep it toned. 

Okay so I was on board.  A wake-up for my digestive system is just what the doctor (or rather, nature) ordered.  I got to try the  Organic Chamomile Digestive Bitters.  I am hooked.  This Organic and Gluten-Free bitter is helpful for those with occasional nausea (pregnant mommies, I am looking at you) and heartburn.  It has a pleasant taste which makes it easier for even the pickiest people to enjoy.  Ever since having my daughter, I always seem to have heartburn, and this has been a huge help!  I have the spray so I can carry it around with me.  It works so well, and is so easy!

I am looking forward to stocking my natural medicine arsenal with more goodies from Urban Moonshine.  The prices are affordable and the effects are amazing!

Carved


IPhone cases are something that have always perplexed me.  I rarely find one I like.  I was hit with the idea of wood phone cases one night (planning the riches I would reap if I invented it), only to find one brilliant company already had.  Carved  makes wood cases for phones that are wooden wonders.


Our original iPhone wood skin was a beautiful product, but it didn't   provide enough protection for some of our customers. We started   experimenting with how we could combine a protective case with our   wood skin. We worked with manufacturers to design a strong,   polycarbonate shell that would more fully encase your phone without   adding a lot of bulk or weight. We finalized our design in early 2012 and   started selling our new Wood + Polycarbonate Cases.Throughout 2012 we expanded our lineup to include the new iPhone 5.   In 2013 we added the Samsung Galaxy S3 and S4, iPad Mini and iPod   Touch. In 2014 we added the Google Nexus 5.In 2014, after 2 and half years of R&D and prototyping, we finally   released our full solid wood case. This case is made entirely in our shop,   entirely from wood. We line the interior with suede to protect your phone   and use solid brass buttons to finish it off.We have always been dedicated to providing ridiculously great customer   service. 

I chose a wood skin and case which has a wood outside and protective case.  I am a momma so I have to have some protection from my sticky fingers.  I love the design and hot light-weight it is.   The phone cases are American-Made and because of their handmade nature, no two is exactly alike.  I am in love.  I am now pretty excited to buy one of their all-wood pieces (like this one) made entirely of reclaimed wood or skateboard.  How cool is that?!  Protect your phone with cover that has as much personality as you.

Boredom Busters

My least favorite pairing of words in the English language have got to be, "I'm bored."  I can spend 24 hours a day planning activities and outings and then comes that inevitable rainy day and  we have a minute of down-time and my daughter tells me she is bored.  I used to get frustrated, and now I go into my arsenal of books.  A new winner for our house is Boredom Busters by Caroline Fernandez.

Let's get crafty! You will never be bored again with the brilliant things to make and do in Boredom Busters. The book is divided into five themed chapters: Art, Craft, Science, Food and Travel. Art Activities shows you how to create pretty pictures using homemade paint, recycled crayons and even coffee filter paper and shaving cream! In Craft Activities, reuse milk cartons for your own bowling game, turn a baby food jar into a snow globe and make cinnamon clay decorations. You will love the cool experiments in the Science section - from growing your own crystals to setting off plastic bottle tornadoes and creating 'lava' in a cup. Cook up a storm with the great recipes in Food Activities: cool ice cream cone cupcakes, delicious chocolate mug cake and colourful pizza faces. Finally, discover ways to keep yourself busy on journeys and holidays in Travel Activities, such as making a T-shirt pillow, wooden spoon puppets and a homemade travel journal.


We have kept ourselves very busy.  We have reused our milk cartons and even made plenty of hand print (and footprint) pictures.  Next up on our list is the Duct Tape Wallet and Baby Food Jar Snowglobe.   You don't have to hear those dreaded words again, just stock the craft closet and get to creating.  Kids will love and you parents can be inspired when you are feeling less-than creative.

Province Apothecary

For me, finding a good skincare line is akin to striking it rich!  I love when I can find a brand who feels the way I do about safe skincare using the best ingredients.  Province Apothecary has me swooning.

Our name Province Apothecary comes from our desire to source organic ingredients from each Canadian Province, including: organic seaweed from Nova Scotia; maple syrup from Quebec; organic sunflower oil from Ontario; organic beeswax from Alberta; organic lentil flour from Manitoba; organic raspberry oil and glacial clay from British Columbia. From across Canada: lavender essential oil, black spruce essential oil, oatmeal flour, organic flax, broccoli oil.Province Apothecary’s handcrafted, organic skin care is gentle + healing. We believe that plant-based, synthetic-free ingredients will nourish + balance your skin, giving you a radiant + vibrant complexion.All of our products are free of petroleum, parabens, synthetic fragrances + chemicals, dyes, pesticides and GMOs. The skin is the largest organ of the body; it absorbs nutrients and eliminates waste. Never apply anything to your skin you would not eat.Province Apothecary’s founder Julie Clark is a Holistic Health Practitioner and Aromatherapist. PA was born out of Julie’s passion for holistic skin care. 

 Province Apothecary is one of those lines I always hear about, and when my package arrived I squealed with joy!  Each product was amazing and I found myself trawling the site to figure out what to get next.  The Regenerating + Stimulating Exfoliator is heaven-scent.  It can be mixed with other ingredients like honey or yogurt according to your skin type.  This masterpiece is perfect for all skin types.  What does it do:
Gently exfoliates and hydrates your skin
Oatmeal calms, softens and nourishes
Green tea stimulates and rejuvenates the skin; giving you a healthy glow
Lavender calms irritation and heals blemishes
Made from organic food that we grind by hand
Biodegradable + safe to use at the cottage or camping
Safe to eat!

I am in love with the scent and how well this works.  

The Repairing + Conditioning Lip Balm is a mix of moisture and relaxation for your lips (seriously this stuff is like aromatherapy for me).  It cured my sun-burnt lips in one day!  I also found myself wanting to inhale the gorgeous sample I got of Parfum Botanique .  There are six scents to choose from; I got No. 23 which is an intoxicating blend of lavender, Candian Black Spruce and Canadian Pine.  Heaven!

The real clear winning product for me is the Invigorating + Balancing Toner.   Can we say obsessed? I am the first to admit that though I like what witch hazel does, I am not a fan of its slight scent.  Somehow, like a skincare magicigan, Julie Clark has managed to make this toner have the witch hazel powerhouse with a scent I cannot resist.  Goodbye hormonal breakouts!  This little powerhouse:
Restores skin’s natural pH
Astringent properties of Witch hazel shrink pores and blemishes
Rose water reduces inflammation and redness
Clary sage and geranium stimulate and tighten skin
Lavender and calendula heal and hydrate

I am looking forward to trying so much more from this line.  I am also wishing I could just pop in and take a look at how Ms. Clark creates her magic.  Until then, I will order away.

Btwn Wind & Water

Many years ago, I worried about having certain brand names and accessories.  As I have aged, I find I value quality and individuality in the items I choose.  Btwn Wind & Water is a dream come true for me.

BTWN WIND & WATER IS A HANDCRAFTED LEATHER GOODS & JEWELRY BRAND DEVOTED TO SIMPLE ELEGANCE IN EVERYTHING WE DESIGN. THE MEANING BEHIND BTWN WIND & WATER COMES FROM AN OLD NAUTICAL TERM- “TO BE AT THE MOST VULNERABLE STATE”.  THE DESIGNS ARE INSPIRED BY CREATIVE, STRONG AND STYLISH PEOPLE. THOSE WHO WANT A BAG THAT IS INTENTIONAL AND BEAUTIFUL. A RARE PIECE THAT WILL LAST A LIFETIME. THIS IS WHAT WE MAKE. WE HOPE YOU ENJOY. XO




Each piece is so wonderfully made with such craftsmanship.  I cannoy get enough.  Thing Coachella with a side of rock and roll.  I have a black clutch that I adore.  The pieces are hand-dyed and easily take you from day to night.  I use mine all day and I love how fascinated people are.  It is so slouchy, soft and really, perfection.  It fits everything I need and dare I say, gives me a little edge.  Now I cannot wait to try some jewelry from this incredible line.  Btwn Wind & Water is so inspired by nature. Creator Mariah says:

Btwn Wind & Water began from pure passion. I truly wanted to create something with my hands and having a background and love for designing leather goods for other brands- I finally wanted to do it for myself. The meaning behind Btwn Wind & Water comes from an old nautical term- " to be at the most vulnerable state". Being an maker takes the courage to put yourself out to the world and trust in your passion. All leather and notions are sourced in the USA. I hand pick each hide for each individual bag. The attention to quality and detail is extremely important to me. Each bag is then handcrafted in our studio in Portland, OR. Every Btwn Wind & Water product is beautifully designed to embody the perfect everyday accessory that can be used from day to night. The intention and details from the selection of leather to the zipper pull create a bag that will last her a lifetime. The future of the brand is to introduce it to a global market & create a unique unisex collection.

I think  Btwn Wind & Water is well on its way to becoming a brand you better watch!

nyakio Firming Baobab Collection


I recently wrote about nyakio , and my devotion to this amazing brand has not waned.  nyakio is releasing a new line of African Tree of Life skincare, Baobab.  Baobab is extracted from the velvety seeds of the Baobab fruit, which grows on large, resilient trees, referred to as the African Tree of Life, that can reach 100 feet in height, live for thousands of years and withstand extreme conditions.  Baobab contains more calcium than milkmore vitamin C than oranges and more iron than red meat.  This powerful anti-aging skincare collection offers immediate firming benefits.

Recently, I have fallen for the new nyakio Firming Face Serum with Baobab Complex.  This lightweight concentrated serum helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while it helps skin feel instantly firmer.  It's infused with the Miracle Oil, Marula and the Baobab complex for face made up of African Baobab Oil, Soybean Seed and Peach Leaf Extract.    I was initially worried it would be too heavy, but it goes on so beautifully.  In a week I noticed my worry lines had a dramatic decrease.
Harnessing the power of African Baobab Oil, this lightweight concentrated serum helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and improves elasticity while it helps skin feel instantly firmer. It is a true skin-strengthener that keeps skin moisturized for 8 hours, radiant and more youthful-looking.Nyakio's family secret: Inspired by her medicine-man grandfather, Nyakio discovered vitamin-rich Baobab Oil, from the African Tree of Life. Nyakio infused the African Baobab Oil with natural oils to create a powerful anti-aging skincare collection for immediate firming and a more youthful-look.


I love that all nyakio products are so richly inspired by history and family secrets.  The nyakio Firming Face Serum with Baobab Complex smells so amazing (herbal).  I have combination skin and this does wonders, especially for a face like mine which spends most days outdoors.


The new Baobab line is sure to be a success.

Seaside Tinkered Treasures

If you are lucky enough to live near a beach of some kind, then you know the treasures that lie on it.  As an East Coast gal, collecting shells, driftwood and fairy tales, was a part of my upbringing.    With the new book Seaside Tinkered Treasures by Elyse Major, I can turn my findings into little gifts from the sea.

Using items from the seashore, holiday essentials, and things you will already have in your home, she has recreated the feeling of summer in these beautiful souvenirs of days spent by the sea. Mermaids made from laundry pegs, shell-topped jars, a beach cottage built from lolly sticks, or a windchime constructed from sticks and shells, are just some of the unique ideas to help you keep your happy summer memories alive throughout the year. Many of the projects use recycled materials, and "tinkering" requires no specialist tools, equipment or techniques – anyone can do it! As well as the 35 projects, there are "Fancy This" alternatives for many of the items, substituting different materials or changing the colours for a different look.
I have always been fascinated by seaside homes and though we do not live on the beach, we visit it numerous times a week during summer.  Seaside Tinkered Treasres helps us to keep the magic of the shore alive in our home.  My daughter was enamoured with this book and though our seashell haul this year is pitiful, we have still found many crafts to create within the book.  My personal favorite is the Front Porch Picnic (or fairy furniture as we call it) that we were able to create together. It was complimented by vintage Liberty of London fabric and a mini tea-set my daughter's great-great-aunt gave her that very day.  My daughter plays with it often and uses her handmade peg dolls.  Up next are Merpegs (peg clothespins transformed into merpeople), and Tinkered Terrariums using the pink sand we have from Bermuda.

Creative Ideas to Organize Your Home


  In college I was like Monica from Friends, a little anal about cleanliness and organization.  With a child, that persona is gone. If the kiddos are not already back in school, then they are pretty close.   Now is the time where I like to take a minute, take a deep breath and....clean the heck out of my house.  Having the kids home is a blessing, but those little mites sure to do make a mess. Even if you're homeschooling, you can benefit from a little reorganization. Creative Ideas to Organize Your Home by Linda Peterson is there to help.
Here is a wonderful collection of 50 step-by-step projects which will help you to bring a sense of order to your home. Author Linda Peterson shows you how to upcycle old baking tins into a three-tiered storage rack and metal trays into memo boards, repurpose a kitchen grater into a jewellery stand and create drawer tidies from baby food jars. Create special storage containers for all your crafting supplies, plus handy binders for magazines, hanging racks, cable tidies, and a cute tool caddy. Wherever you need small-scale storage solutions - from the kitchen to the bathroom, the bedroom to the study - you will find a stylish, crafty solution in this book.

You may be amazed at how a few neat ideas can change your home into the orderly escape you always dreamed of.  I like that this book brings out my creative side while helping me to keep my chaos in order.
I had my dad help (he is the handyman) and made a vintage knob rack. We actually used a rung from a very old ladder that has been sitting outside.  I used a repurposed place and candle stand to make a little place for my perfumes (which was badly needed as they were taking up tons of dresser real-estate).

I love that Creative Ideas to Organize Your Home encourages you to use items you have at home and repurpose to make things organized.  Cleanliness is next to...sanity (at least for me)!

Hollyhock Cooks

I am inspired by cookbooks on a daily basis.  Especially in the warmer months, where I am not too keen on cooking, it takes a good cookbook to get me fired up and ready to create in the kitchen.  Hollyhock Cooks is one such cookbook.

Imagine a educational retreat center nestled in the tall forest of an island paradise where the sea laps at the beach below. Now add the most delicious food imaginable, created by a host of talented artist-cooks using vegetables and flowers gathered from the center's lush gardens, and presented with delicate care. Then think of the most well-known names from the body, mind, and soul circuit who frequently teach here, and the guests who hail from the furthest reaches of the continent....This is Hollyhock. Located on Cortes Island in British Columbia's Georgia Strait, Hollyhock is about nourishing those who work to make the world a better place. It has been attracting visitors like bees to honey for the past twenty-five years - partly because of its delicious food.Now, for the first time, Hollyhock Cooks showcases the best of its globally influenced cuisine, with over 200 recipes including everything from soups and salads to entrées, sauces and spreads, desserts, and drinks. Special chapters focus on how to combine garden with kitchen, and on secrets for cooking for a crowd. And interspersed throughout are comments from the famous Hollyhock presenters - Ram Dass, Eckhart Tolle, Robert Bly, Joan Borysenko and more - on their very favorite dishes.

The recipes are inspired by what we have around us.  The food is wholesome and healthy and sure to be a hit in any home.    Hollyhock Cooks  is the book you pack for family vacations where you want the flavors and the love to shine.  I made the Mediterranean Pasta (using spaghetti squash instead of pasta) and my family wanted seconds and thirds.
A breakfast, lunch and inner favorite is the Hollyhock bread which is full of whole grains and tastes amazing whether being used for a sandwich or with homemade jelly on toast. The recipes are for large servings (families), but you can reduce as needed.  I love reading about what inspired the recipes.  I plan on getting more copies of this book to gift to friends and family.  Cooking with love and the freshest ingredients is the way to a a families' heart.

BijaBody


While reading through some favorite eco-beauty sites, there was one brand name that came up again and again...BijaBody.  
BijaBody’s mission is to change the conversation about beauty. We believe in the power of women working together to help build a world that future generations can proud of; a world where people are celebrated for their unique beauty, authenticity and courage in pursuing their passions, whatever they may be.  To do that, BijaBody creates health + beauty systems that help our customers feel good from the inside out and the outside in. We focus just as intently on the social/environmental impacts as we do effectiveness. 
This incredible line has body care and tea that you will not want to ever do without once you try them.  BijaBody has strict guidelines for their products.  
  • Ingredients must be as natural as possible, and sophisticated. We want the best that modern, responsible, natural chemistry can produce.
  • All lab-created ingredients will be non-toxic, biodegradable and serve a very distinct purpose that cannot be achieved with a natural ingredient alone. An example of this is using curcumin instead of turmeric, because it is the active extract, and must go through a laboratory extraction, and have an emulsifier. We use minute concentrations of Butylene Glycol (not to be mistaken with propylene glycol) to emulsify Turmeric extract.
  • Concentrations of active ingredients will meet or exceed current data for efficacy. No ingredient shall be included just for claim's sake.
  • No citrus oil.
  • All oils must be cold-pressed to preserve abundant goodness, and essential oils must be steam-distilled.
  • Honey will be from properly managed apiaries in USA to protect our precious bees.
  • Ingredients must be from fairly-traded sources whenever possible, and with increasing regularity, and must be harvested in manners which protect sources.
  • No GMOs.
  • No Palm Oil or Derivatives.
  • Ingredients should be organic when possible, or from sources which have been investigated to be responsible.

The best way to try everything is the Discovery Set which includes their amazing body products as well as tea samples.   I loved everything in the set, but the big winners for me are the Daily Body Serum (smells amazing and leaves my skin glowing) and the Bedside Manner Lip + Hand Treatment.  These are products that you will not want to live without.  Which brings me to the teas, oh the teas.  Run to your computer, don't walk and order the Herbal Beauty Tea, or any of their teas for that matter.  You cannot imagine how pure and beneficial they are.  My samples were not enough.  I had to order more right away.  They just make you feel good and comforted and really more beautiful.  I know sounds crazy, but it works!

I cannot wait to order more from this amazing company, because quite frankly the fact that I have run out of the Daily Body Scrub is not going to work.  Think smooth skin all year long in a convenient bottle (and don't get me started on the amazing smell).
