How to Avoid Ticks + What To Look For

Tick Prevention

For some of us, the snow has melted and the temperatures are rising. The urge to leave the confines of our warm homes are calling us to the great outdoors. Long walks in the woods, trips to the beaches, excursions to parks and picnicking in grassy fields may be on your list of activities. It’s hard to believe it’s that time of year already. Time to think about tick prevention!

Worst Day Ever – a Moment of Reflection

Worst Day Ever

Today was one of those days. You know, one of those days. A day when it feels like everything is going wrong. A day when you feel like the whole world is against you. A day when its hard to see what you do have, but so easy to see what you don’t. One of those days. The worst day ever.  I was angry, and disappointed, and upset, and sad, and irritated, and just in an all-over-horrible mood.

Tree to Table: 100% Pure Wild-Harvested Raw Coconut Oil



I have long been curious about Coconut oil. It sounds like a miracle product, good for both your insides AND your outsides: a multi-purpose product good for your skin, your teeth, and your health. After doing quite a bit of research, I decided to contact Skinny & Co so I could learn more about the benefits of using coconut oil. As someone with sensitive and allergic skin, with scent allergies, its hard to find products that I can use, so I have been trying to find as many natural products as I can in my quest to keep my skin looking and feeling great, with as little allergic reaction as possible.

Deep Relief Ice Cold Spray #ColderThanIce

Deep Relief Ice Cold Spray Deep Relief is a line of sprays and gels that are designed to target the inflammation and pain resulting from sore muscles.  The newest product to help relieve your aching and sore muscles is Deep Relief’s Ice Cold Spray. I have to say that I was impressed! Deep Relief’s Ice Cold Spray goes on cold, dries quickly and a plus for me is that it is Non-Greasy!! I really love that. I also am a big fan of scents. I really am not likely to use a product often or I will go as far as saying that I would not even purchase a product if it didn’t tantalize my senses and smell terrific or at least great!!

Deep Relief’s Ice Cold Spray reminds me of Vick’s (ooops—can I say that out loud??) but it does – really!!! As soon as I opened the parcel and broke open the protective plastic barrier that covers the cap I gave the can a shake and sprayed a little bit onto my arm (just for fun) and also to see what it smelled like. I was immediately taken back to my childhood and that scent that I grew to love/hate in our cold Canadian winters.
