DIY Amazing Natural Sanitizing Wipes
After weeks of not being able to find sanitizing wipes at stores I took matters into our own hands and told Caron I was going to create my own. The plus side was we had all the ingredients to create...
Product Review We Love Eyes
Recently I discovered a new product by We Love Eyes and today I’ll be talking about the Eyelid Scrub Kit. A few weeks ago I was overdue for an eye exam and when I met with my optometrist I asked...
Have your tried our amazing lip balms?
What makes a good lip balm?  In my opinion, I prefer plant based, so our lip balms are all essential oil based - we often get asked for various flavours that don't exist in natural form, .All of our lip...
Benefits of Sea Salts. Who Knew?
Nowadays, who has time for a bath?  Quick shower, scrub down, in and out and on with the day.  Really?  We don’t have time to take a bath?  That’s sad (and I am preaching to the choir here).  What if...
It's All About That Chai
Not sure where my fascination with chai began but it's all around me these days. Years ago we started making soap & lip balm & candle called Tofino Morning Chai and last year we added on a coconut wax version of this heavenly blend. Thinking back...
Heading to the "6ix"
Hello blog, it’s been awhile and I’ve missed you so I decided to come back and write again. The New Year came in and I barely noticed it. My sister and I always say it slows down but in honesty...
Sticking to it and don't look back
In this new year most of us make resolutions. We either make them and don’t keep them or make them and keep them. This year Caron and I wanted to make a resolution we would stick with and we decided...
How Do You Set Boundaries?
Two Blooms had an amazing rest over the holidays but deep down I knew my blog was waiting. As hard as it was to not keep writing, Caron & I both needed the break and time away for our minds...
How I survived the Christmas madness
I hate to admit it but I’ve gotten caught up in the busyness of the season. My sister and I are entrepreneurs after all and it’s very hard to take a breather and slow down. We’ve written about this topic...
A Christmas Tradition
In this ‘instant’ society of North America, we tend to want everything now and do not like to wait.  Some things though can only truly be savoured if we only taste them once a year. ‘Impossible” you say, “why wait? ...
Tis the season for purses
The perfect small bag just couldn’t be found, I didn’t want a plastic one that would eventually crinkle and crack.   Nor did it make sense to buy one factory made that everyone else had.  And my phone is old and...
What donut do you wear?
We all like donuts don’t we? I do, the sweet sugary taste, the billowy goodness you enjoy after your first bite. It’s comforting even though you know it’s not the best for you. We all crave that sense of comfort...
I thought this running class was for couch potatoes
You may remember the first post I did about running here.  So we go to the first class and we figure it will be pretty laid back. I wear a sweat shirt, jogging pants and a black puffy coat. I don’t...
Adele would love this.
It’s a month until Christmas and as a maker, life is chaos.  Between fulfilling wholesale orders,  selling at weekend craft markets (who signed us up for these markets anyways? Oh wait a minute, that could have been me :) and...
Staycation
Remember that song by the Go-Go’s? "Vacation all I ever wanted.." are you humming along to it yet? Since we are entrepreneurs we sing it as ‘STAYCATION all I ever wanted”.  Customers laugh when we say that we consider a...
Run a 5K, are you joking?
Caron (the other bloom of Two Blooms) has posted about our running adventure here and here and now it’s my turn to describe the events that led up to me joining this torturous class.  Yup Caron saw a sign driving by several times that said...
Thank you for 30 days of blogging
Nothing has prevented me from this challenge. As I was harping on my sister to post this blog that I'd written 2 hours earlier the power went out. Just as we were about to head out the door to head...
Home is where your memories are
I longingly read a magazine article that recalled the author going to their childhood home for Christmas and tucking their young family into the beds that they slept in as children. “Does that still exist in this transient society” I...
Don't leave home without it
Your new breakfast friend. Here’s one of the many joys of having a younger sister, she pushes your envelope sometimes and sometimes she brings ideas into the mix that you would never have considered. Little Bloom is also known to...
Lip loveliness
There are few things that really irritate me.  Buying a lip balm and smoothing it on your lips only to feel grittiness - do you know what I mean?  There is no reason for that silliness (unless of course you...
When you just can't
This has been a power week.  We’ve gotten two runs in, long walks and sugar consumption has been low. Yesterday I was up at 6am working away and went until 11:30 at night.  Lists were made, plans were set and...
