Well in to August I feel like the summer is just flying by. Most of our days have been spent with a quiet park wander, collecting acorns, sticks and stones and visiting with my grandmother. I am also in the midst of writing my Live Small Town Fall piece and starting to think of back to school and fall projects!
A lot of heavy feelings have surrounded me lately so I have been putting extra energy in to the ups of everything. Making goodies for people here and there, slowing down to enjoy nature in all its beauty, snuggling my kiddos a little longer – and Wally dog too! Even in the thick of it there is something to smile about.
I also had a FANTASTIC experience with Boosh recently – they make and sell natural lipstick here in Ontario, Canada! If you haven’t heard of the brand look them up on Instagram or Facebook! I purchased the lip plumping balm and it seemed to take a long while to get to me but I couldn’t even remember when I ordered it so I sent an email just to ask. Sarah replied so quickly and pleasantly eager to help. Canada post was just slow (typical 😉 ) and it arrived the next day!
I love this product SO much! It has the nicest cool sensation and keeps my lips so soft. I am a pretty plain person and wear minimal make up but this will be something I use often. I also have my eye on Nova – a light colour I think will be perfect for just a little something when the mood strikes.
If you like lip colour check out the bold and subtle choices available and support a wonderful small business.
I will leave it at that, on a high note and with a reminder to be a kind human. It really makes all the difference.
