Rain, rain...

I don't know where you are in the world but, its raining here, and I woke up with a headache. Actually, many people are affected by the weather - specifically, headaches due to barometric pressure (weight of the air above pressing down).

Hesitant to take Advil (not a fan drugs), I got to my desk at work and took out the Lavender & Peppermint aromatherapy oil and rubbed some on my temples and under my nose. {Aromatherapy is the application or use off essential oils - often extracted from plants - to promote healing in the body.} Anywho, the smell is fabulous and you know what, it worked!
You can get pretty and pure aromatherapy at fine shops like Sephora which double as skin treatments as well. Other essential oils (for more therapeutic purposes) are sold at my favourite natural health marts; Good Health Mart and Planet Organic. Don't be afraid to spend a bit on your oils to get the most bang for your buck. Opting for the cheaper oils means that they may be diluted and, in some cases, not even the real thing!
Please read this on using essential oils safely.
Have an aromatastic day!!

YAY! Found couches at The Bay on Bay and Queen St. in Toronto. Super excited, chocolate brown micro suede with movable chaise. Its gonna look great. Sorry I don't have a pic to accompany this.
On to the next thing....who is obsessed with Nigella Lawson's Kitchenware. I'm dying! Here are some of the things I'm on the market for:

These look like eggs!

Because everyone needs a lemon juicer squeezer

These mixing bowls look so comfy
Cummon! Real spoons?!? Too cute.
Last but not least, old school measuring cups
Anywho...I'm on a hunt for these this weekend.
I'll let you know how it goes.
Talk soon...

moved in .... and movin' on

Full speed ahead! I'm ecstatic with the new house and my new life...its taking some adjusting but, overall...what better than to go home to your OWN house and rummage through everything that is YOURS??? Its wonderful!

We are still searchin' for a couch. Mind you, we just got back from the honeymoon (Tahiti) and really haven't had the time to search for anything lately...perhaps we'll go this weekend.

Funny what happens when you get a stop thinking about yourself (as in shopping for yourself) and you think of how you will express your style in your home and surroundings instead. I went shopping on my lunch break the other day - at Canadian Tire! - to look for a good ironing board. In the past, my lunches would have been spent trotting through Eaton's Centre in Toronto, looking for the latest accessory of the season.

Perhaps Ill go to Homesence today....I'm dying to get one of those really cool trendy ceramic stools for my home...don't know where we'll put it but, I'll figure it out.

Until next time....
