show some skin

Face It

Face It: My skin would not have survived the winter without this super-hydrating face oil from Aromacentric.

Made from a base of 100% all-natural, extremely nourishing oils like avocado, carrot and borage, and blended with essential oils of neroli and jasmine, Face It is like a big glass of water for your face. (I stole this line from a testimonial because I couldn’t have said it better myself.)

My skin literally drinks it up every morning and stays hydrated for the entire day. It’s so pure and natural that when I apply it, I feel like I’m doing something good for myself. Face It has worked wonders for my normally dry, sensitive skin all winter long. And I wouldn’t have wanted to leave home without it when we went south. Smoothing it onto my face after a day in the sun and swim quenched my skin and made me feel like I was glowing.

Also in regular rotation in our bathroom: Aromacentric’s heavenly Eucalyptus, Lemon and Grapefruit Soaking Salts. The perfect end to any day. And, on my desk, right next to my laptop: their Rescue Essential Mist—a calming blend of frankincense, geranium and lavender—otherwise known as a “scent with benefits.” Spritz when stressed.

See and sniff for yourself…Aromacentric will be at the Gluten Free Garage on Sunday April 28th!

pancakes for dinner!

Today was Pancake Day (who knew?) so we tried out JK Gourmet's new grain-free pancake mix.

This afternoon we clued in that today is Pancake Day (thanks, Facebook!) so we broke out a box of JK Gourmet‘s new grain-free pancake & waffle mix. Any excuse to have breakfast for dinner!

 

Made from almond flour and organic coconut nectar, these pancakes had a subtle sweet flavour.

And then we let the kids play with their food...as long as they ate it after!

And this was Franny's creation.

This is Franny’s creation. She likes her pancakes with almond butter. “I could swallow these pancakes in one gulp because I love them!” And she did.
