Go To: Tugwell Creek Meadery, mead means honey wine by the way.

Okay, I'll admit it. I have a problem. I have a bit of a wine problem. I love the stuff. Thats why I was delighted to come across an oasis of wine and honey in my own backyard. The Tugwell Creek Meadery is a beautiful farm by the sea near Sooke, BC. Just a short 1 hour jaunt from Victoria. Tugwell sells their meads and honeys all over BC, and have won several awards. I suggest you take a Sunday drive to their farm someday and try out their delicious crafts. The Meadery also features a small local gift shop and you can take tours of the farm, watch out for bees though (just kidding, they don't bite).

Tugwell Creek Meadery

May 1st through September 30th,

Check out: Designs by Amber from SaltsSpring Island BC

One of my favorite designers to carry in the Salts Boutique is the lovely Amber Churchill from SaltSpring Island, British Columbia. She has a unique style that can easily rise above the masses of jewelery designers out there. Her big delicious pieces (like the Brazilian Agate Necklace shown at the top)are my favorites. Though I don't think I can pull them off, maybe I can...let me know.

Churchill is also a talented screen printer, feltress and Doll makers however. Which makes her my hero. She uses great eco friendly or recycled supplies in her handcrafts. Her jewelery has also been worn by the likes of Kelly Rowland from Destiny's Child, which makes her even more my hero. Amber darling, I am afraid that I want to be just like you.

Check out more of her items at the Salts Boutique in Sooke, BC.

Perfect Certified Organic Skincare and Makeup that Really Works!

I have found the greatest new skincare line. Its made from top notch organically certified botanical. I have had trouble with my skin for years and have tried everything from expensive spa lines to drugstore and made for TV lines. This stuff the bomb. So much so that I am willing to endorse it behind my own organic clothing brands name as a seller. I love it. Absolutely love it. It called Miessence. You can take a look at the line Miessence right here.

I have been using the line for oily skin. I love the serums and eye cream. Try the Jaffa lip balm for sure. The smells are all fresh and natural, no perfume headaches here. Try it out and let me know what you think.

Do Good,
