End-of-Summer Tomato Soup

August 17, 2017

READ MORE

Oh, summer tomatoes. Is there anything more succulent? This end-of-summer tomato soup is the best meal for transitioning into those slightly cooler days at the end of summer. We love to use a variety of tomatoes from the farmer’s market to make it. (I’m addicted to going to the Farmer’s Markets right now by the way, anyone else?)

Endless Summer Glow Skincare Tips

August 1, 2017

READ MORE

One of my favourite parts of summer is that gorgeous fresh sun-kissed summer glow on my skin. It actually feels a bit nostalgic to feel the sun on your skin. However, as I age, I’m also more aware that I need to keep my skin protected from those harmful sun rays and strive for healthy, glowing summer skin. I definitely don’t lay out in the sun like I used to. Sun protection has become a must, which of course helps with decreasing signs of
