OUR {UN}BLOG

This is an {un}blog, and not really a blog (because I never really do anything completely conventionally), but I certainly do have a lot to say and share (for those of you who know me, you did not need me to spell this out). I’m SO fortunate to be able to connect with people, products, and ideas that I find incredibly inspiring every day, and I hope to use this virtual space to give you an inside look into what’s going on in my (crazy) world…which, I share with you.

Along with my small but mighty team, we will be posting content under 3 main departments, and encourage you to share with us as well. If something excites or outrages you, if you have a product or service that we should know about, or should you have any comments, complaints, criticisms or compliments please be in touch.

Our Halloween Roundup

In an attempt to make sure our kids don’t hate us, and our neighbours, family and friends don’t ridicule us (although some of us may have gotten used to this by now – especially me), this post will provide you with useful resources and suggestions – hoping we can all together, inspire a less scary Halloween (since, boycotting the holiday altogether is a little ambitious and un-spirited – for this year anyways).

Pinktober

It’s October—the leaves are changing colours, our front stoops showcase our orange pumpkins, the first frosts make our gardens white in the morning, and everywhere I look, virtually and in person, I see pink.

Despite the lovely pink ribbon, toxic ingredients are polluting us. Maybe it’s just the cynic in me, but I think it should be common-sense that we can’t shop our way to a cure – (more…)

Something to also keep in mind: Organic is a guarantee of safety not quality, always take the time to know where your purchases are coming from too. (more…)
