I’ve decided: Canadian goods are awesome, and they’re worth hunting for. Case and point: MacAusland’s Woolen Mills, of Prince Edward Island. They make beautiful, soft, affordable wool blankets and yarn the old fashioned way, and they make you wonder why you ever forked out $50+ for a subpar blanket, when you could have been filling your home/cottage/car with these beauties.
I have a new hobby, and by extension, a tag line of sorts. It’s, “I’ve got an oil for that!”.
Sun burn? Lavender. Under the weather? On Guard. Sticky mess? Lemon. Headache? Peppermint. Cramps? Clary Calm. Scar? Frankincense. The list goes on! I am so thankful that my closest friends are jumping on the same bandwagon. We all have a strong desire to consume fewer chemicals, to simplify our lives, and to make our homes safe for each other and future generations.
Did you know that MUJI has arrived in Canada? Here it is.
If you haven’t heard of MUJI before, I’m almost not surprised. But a little bit of me is thinking, where have you been!? I first heard about MUJI on Youtube, when there was an influx in “How I Organise my Makeup Collection” videos. Say, this one.
I’ve been an admirer of their simplistic design for quite some time, but the $20 shipping cost didn’t thrill me. So of course when I had the chance to visit Toronto recently for a friend’s wedding shower, I
walked ran (like I had a secret) to the store.
JP and I are moving house tomorrow, and so this Friday Favourites is in honour of the little things I will miss most about our first apartment.
A couple of years ago, I discovered my affinity and affection for thrifting. The discovery coincided with my engagement to JP; getting married meant a new home, and a new home meant I could finally buy home goods. I found myself occasionally strolling into Talize, Value Village, or The Salvation Army, and I discovered that there is great stuff to be found! After a few very successful thrifting trips, I was hooked.
