Wedding season is upon us and a big part of wedding planning is choosing the right flowers. Since spring has finally sprung and has been making an appearance in the big city, I'm excited to start browsing wedding venues and enjoying the outdoors! Different flowers can set the feel of a wedding: bright and bold, or soft and subtle... floral arrangements from bouquets and boutineers to tablesettings are an important aspect of any wedding.

Usually in the dead of winter, people get lazier than normal and fall out of their regular routines. I'm definitely one of them! I visited Smooth Wax Bar last week and I'm so thankful I did. At first, I was worried that the waxing would hurt as I'm more of a DIY kinda gal and have only experienced at-home waxing kits (they hurt!). But to my surprise, my full leg wax treatment was actually around 80% less pain than using wax strips from the drugstore, I kid you not!

Every year when it gets cold again, my friends and I complain that there's never anything to do. That's when I started to think of different activities that we can all have fun doing, but only in the season of Autumn! It's only here for 3 months, so let's make the most of it! I love Autumn since it gets just a little bit cooler and the air just slightly more crisp; doesn't hurt that my birthday often falls on the first day of Autumn either! Looking for fun things to do in fall just got easier...

By definition, essential oils are natural oils that are highly concentrated from the source (can be shrubs, flowers, trees, roots, bushes and seeds) that it's extracted from and are also known as volatile oils. They are usually extracted through steam distillation, but can also be extracted by cold pressing. Essential oils have been around for many years due to their many uses: flavouring, adding scent and health uses. You can either dilute the specific oil in a carrier oil which is then massaged into the skin, diffuse the oil in the air, heat over a flame or burn it as incense. Essential oils as well as plant extracts have been known throughout history since the beginning of time and are considered by many to be the missing link in modern medicine.
