Silicone Tea Infusers – 3 Cute styles to choose from

Brewing up a perfect cup of loose leaf tea is easy when you have the right silicone tea infuser to help along with the job. Simply pop open the infuser, fill with your favourite loose leaf tea – whether black tea, green tea or an herbal tea – and then pop into your cup. Fill with boiling water, and in only a few minutes you have a delicious, fresh hot cup of tea!

Silicone infusers are ideal to use, because they’re easy to clean! The silicone is also easier to use – customers say that the lids of these infusers are easier to remove than the traditional metal lids, which can be a bit cumbersome. (I find the little metal clasps on the traditional tea infusers are what makes them such a pain to deal with.)

Argon oil shampoo (Argan oil) – Excellent for dry hair

Argon oil shampoo is excellent for adding lots of moisture to your hair, which is particularly helpful if you have naturally dry hair. Argan oil is derived from the argan nut of the argan tree, which grows in Morocco. That’s why the original argan oil products were all labelled as Moroccan argan oil – that’s where this stuff grows naturally!

The reason argan oil shampoo has become so incredibly popular is that it can add moisture to hair in a way that few other ingredients can. For centuries, people in Morocco ate argan oil, because it’s not only got a delicious, mildly nutty taste, but it also has amazing health benefits! For your hair, though, you’ll be able to tell a difference in the texture – argan oil can help to smooth out your hair. This is perfect if – like me – your hair tends to be a bit frizzy.

Argan (Argon) Oil shampoos available online

We’ve searched for some of the highest rated, and still reasonably priced Argan oil shampoos available online. When possible, we give you two different options of where to purchase, so that you can choose the retailer you’d prefer to support. Okay…happy shopping, y’all!

OGX Renewing Argan Oil of Morocco Shampoo

OGX Renewing Argan Oil of Morocco Shampoo

$11.29 @ Well.ca or $6.99 @ Amazon.ca; 385 ml bottle

A consistent best-selling shampoo, this one gets rave reviews from customers! This shampoo claims to help restore moisture and health to even the most dry, damaged hair.

Here’s my favourite review: “Creamy shampoo that smells nice too. It made my hair silky and soft. Very nourishing for split ends.”

Live Clean Argan Oil Restorative Shampoo

Live Clean Argan Oil Restorative Shampoo

$13.99 @ Well.ca and on sale for $9.98 @ Amazon.ca (Regular price $12.49) – Family size bottle 750 ml

  • Excellent when used together with the matching conditioner to create softer, more manageable hair.
  • Nice light, natural scent that’s a mild nutty scent – smells lovely.
  • No SLS in this product (sodium lauryl sulfate.) If you’re trying to avoid this detergent ingredient, you can purchase this shampoo knowing there’s no sulfate in it at all. (So, the shampoo will not lather up as much BUT your hair will get just as clean.)

If you’re looking for an argan oil shampoo, then the two we’ve listed above come very highly recommended. You’ll get an awesome new shampoo, and your hair will look moisturized and beautiful. Hooray for good hair days!

Vintage Cookie Jars – 3 of our favourite styles

The glorious cookie! (Or, if you’re British – biscuits!) It’s a delicious, sweet snack all wrapped up in one small package. It is just about the perfect accompaniment to a cup of good tea or coffee. If you’re a home baker – and more of us are than ever before – and you love to try out new cookie recipes, then you need a handy spot to keep your home baked creations. That’s where cookie jars come in to play.

True vintage cookie jars can be found by:

  1. Raiding your Mom’s or grandmother’s closet or pantry.
  2. Visiting lots of garage sales and yard sales until you find just the right one.
  3. Heading to the thrift store and snagging the perfect, retro jar.

But, during the pandemic some of those options simply aren’t options at all! So, if you’re looking for a vintage or retro style cookie jar, we’ve found some that we think you’ll just love. They have an old-fashioned, traditional style that you’ll be eager to fill with lots of freshly baked cookies. Of course, cookie jars also make an excellent gift for someone who loves to bake. In fact, cookie jars are a very popular gift year round.

Trudeau Silicone Muffin Pans – Now $19.99

There’s nothing better than a fresh batch of muffins! But, sometimes you come to realize that it’s time to replace your old muffin pans. You know…like when they look like something that went through the wars? Yes, it is time!

Confetti Silicone Muffin Pan 12-Cup by Trudeau
Confetti Silicone Muffin Pan 12-Cup by Trudeau $19.99 each at Linen Chest

Silicone muffin pans make baking muffins easier than ever. And today we’re sharing this 20% off sale at Linen Chest on Trudeau 12-cup silicone muffin pans. As with any muffin pans, be sure to still grease the pans a bit before adding the muffin batter. You can use less fat greasing the pans when you use silicone, but you’ll still need some. You can use either butter, margarine or oil such as canola oil or sunflower oil. By greasing the pans, this will ensure that the muffins will pop out easily.

And – if you love making egg muffins (also known as muffin cup quiches or muffin cup omelets), then silicone pans make it a lot easier to remove these from the pan. You simply pop them out! You can’t so that with a metal pan, let me tell you…

5 Gifts for Beekeepers, Bee Lovers and Honey Lovers

I’ve always had a love of all things bees. I love watching big fat bumblebees drinking in the nectar of awaiting flowers, and how they seem loopy with happiness after they’ve had a good feed. I love watching beekeepers taking care of the hives, carefully producing delicious local honey. And, I’ve even been known to stop and pet a docile and chubby little bumblebee while they’re nestled in a flower. They’re just so precious. (I’m not sure my husband agrees – he tends to run away from them! haha)

Today I’ve curated 5 beautiful gift ideas for the beekeepers, bee lovers, or honey lovers in your life. Or, maybe you’re the one who loves our beautiful, and wonderfully helpful bees. In which case, enjoy perusing the different products that may touch your bee-loving heart.

5. Kikkerland Little Bee House for Solitary Bees – great for out in the garden

Kikkerland Little Bee House
Kikkerland Little Bee House
Solitary bees are bees that – as their name suggests – are introverts! These bees are on their own, and are extremely docile. But, they need a little home of their own, which is exactly what this little pine bee house is intended to do. Apparently, solitary bees are three times more effective at pollinating, so by drawing them to your garden, all your garden flowers may thank you. $14.99 @ Well.ca

It’s been a beautiful wander around beeland today, a journey I quite enjoyed. If I find other lovely bee related gifts and goodies, i’ll definitely come back and update this post with my new finds. I’ll buzz along now…happily finding some other bargains and deals for you guys.

Call the Midwife Season 2 – Only $10.99 (75% off!)

Yes, our feature image on this particular deal was a cup of tea. Anything this wonderfully British needs a cup of tea to go with it, if you ask me. Call the Midwife is an excellent series all about life in London in the 1950’s as a young midwife. I read all of the books and thoroughly enjoyed them – as in, I go back and re-read them once in a while. I love books and TV series that take you away to an entirely different time and place. The characters in this series are incredible – and of course, they’re all based on a true story.

This is the right time to pick up this bargain. Only $10.99 at the time of writing, which is a whopping 75% off! Enjoy! And just promise me you’ll brew up a good strong cuppa to go along with your viewing…
