I received some really lovely products today from Shoreline Body Co. Handmade & based in Ucluelet, BC Canada. The owner from Shoreline Body Co – Amy, grows her very own medicinal herbs to infuse her products with the healing powers of herbs and pure ingredients . Her products are “pure, natural and simple.”
You can find Shoreline Body products here:
BUZZ Lip Balm – This lip balm is very smooth and soothing on the lips. There is many good properties about the ingredients so I will list them below from the Shoreline website. Shoreline Lip Balm’s go for $8.00. A fantastic price for homegrown and handmade products made with passion and love!
I had the pleasure of including the Essence Facial Toner in my skin care routine this morning. This specific toner is a rose toner which excites me because I am a huge fan of products that include the healing power of roses! I feel like she explains her products so well in her product descriptions so I am going to include images of those so I am not trying to rewrite her fabulous words!
Rose Facial Toner : $24
Next is this FLAWLESS Face Serum. Which she honestly couldn’t have found a better name for it! This serum is absolutely divine! I included this after I did the facial toner in my skin routine this morning. My skin is feeling so hydrated and rejuvenated today! I’m super excited for my skin and myself to continue using these in my daily routine ❀
Including the healing properties of the Organic Oils from – Calendula, Jojoba, Argan, Grapeseed, Geranium, Rosemary, Lavender, Neroli and the purest form of Love!
I applied 4 drops to my face, massaging and patting it into my skin.
FLAWLESS Face Serum: $28
My last heavenly product from Shoreline Body Co is this BALANCE Body Butta’. This is a very hydrating blend, looking a bit like honey in the jar! It was a bit liquidy when I first opened it, due to the intense heat of the summer right now. However since it’s been inside it has started to thicken a bit more which will make it more manageable.
Leaving my skin smooth and hydrated and my hands not too oily afterwards like some body budders. The smell and aroma I am getting from this is so lovely and calming.
BALANCE Body Budda: $24
This was such a lovely package clearly made with passion and love. I was so impressed that the the medicinal herbs she uses in her products are all homegrown and cared for personally. This is a huge quality and really appreciated! Thank you Amy for the lovely products, they are truly divine!
Make sure to have a look at Shoreline Body’s other natural products!
❀ Thanks for joining me today in this post! See you next time. ❀

Today I have an incredibly special collaboration to share with you. I was recently in contact with the lovely Michele Lav; owner and creator of AlienScty. Her store specializes in Religious Artifacts, Medicinal Herbs & Spiritual tools. She just recently relocated to beautiful Montreal, Quebec. So further or due lets jump into this special package!
Michele creates these beautiful herbal sets [DIY tea & bath]. This is just a sample pack of the herbal set. The full set comes with 15 different organic elements & a few other bits and bobs to have the complete set for your creations.
She included jasmine, marigold, hibiscus and lavender. I have recently gotten more into creating my own teas with the organic plants that grow around where I reside. This will be a lovely additive to my tea making ^.^
This next lovely little gift made my entire package smell divine. This is an organic lavender bath bag made with epsom salt lavender scented , dried lavender buds, dried rosemary, virgin coconut oil & oat. These bath bags come in 3’s and are quite enchanting.
The next adorable gift was this miniature bottle with the scent of rose water in it. I’m not sure if it had liquid in it before hand but when I opened it, it smelt lovely but was dry inside. I love the Hamsa imprint on the little clay bottle. This will fit in lovely with my boyfriends small bottle collection ^.^
The next few gifts were wrapped in this beautiful weaved fabric. Absolutely adorable.
In this lovely little pouch I received this beautiful little piece of amethyst which I adore ❤ A compass Necklace in Rose Gold and this double loop Hamsa ring. This ring is very unique and beautiful. I haven’t seen a double loop ring like this before and was in Aw when I tried it on for the first time! The compass necklace is very special and delicate & would speak to any traveling soul ❤
Last is my very favourite! I am in love with everything Michele has sent me, however these shell spoons she makes are so beautiful and different and I think every mermaid hearted spirit would fall in love with these gorgeous spoons.
Thank you so much to Michele Lav from Alienscty, what you are doing is so special and I hope you continue following your passions and your heart ❤ blessings to your beautiful soul.

They also handmake these delightful sugar scrubs! I received two kinds “Rose” & “Rainforest”. The rose scrub smells a bit citrusy and really lovely. It was a bit more oily on the top than the rainforest scrub which leaked into the package a bit, but didn’t damage anything and just made everything smell really lovely ^.^ Made with fabulous ingredients to treat the skin.

The rainforest scrub scent is well described because I wasn’t able to describe the smell otherwise! Very refreshing and nurturing ^.^ This feels really divine on the skin, which I will be making a separate post on in the near future ^.^

Happy new year friends! I want to start off by thanking everyone for their ongoing support of my artwork, website, youtube ect! You’ve all made it really worth my time and I thank you and appreciate that.
I’ve never been one to sit down and write my resolutions down. I’m really not even the type who’s ever HAD resolution besides “get published” haha. (which hasn’t really happened yet).
Resolutions… Resolutions… Resolutions…
Things that need to stop.
- Stop letting people take advantage of me. – Write up a contract for my clients so I am paid for the work I do for them.
- Stand up for myself. Stop saying yes to everyone. – Think about what the situation is doing for myself rather than worrying about situations benefiting everyone else.
- Stop wasting time on people who don’t deserve it. – Stick to friendships and relationships that have mutual respect.
Things i’d like to start.
- I’d like to try and do 1 interview a month because it seems to bring the most attention to my website and photography.
- I’d like to start sewing. I have a couple bags of fabrics and old clothes i’d like to play around with and alter.
- I’d like to start playing more on my wacom tablet doing portrait illustrations.
I think having 3 of each is a nice balance for now. These are things I have thought a lot throughout 2016 and need to just get a move on with it.
Once again, thank you for reading! Have a beautiful 2017 friends!
