US/CAN - #Win a copy of #DarkShadows on DVD

Warner Brothers is pleased to announce the release of Dark Shadows featuring Johnny Depp on DVD and Blue Ray. I am personally a huge fan of Tim Burton films and his vivid use of color and imagination, not to mention Johnny Depp is one heck of a character actor. Dark Shadows is based upon the classic television series that aired from 1966 - 1971 featuring a character named Barnabas Collins. The original television role  was played by an actor named Jonathan Frid.

To celebrate the release of the film Warner Brothers has also made this neat little Dark Shadows blog app. I encourage all of you to explore it. You can take the 'Are you Creepy Enough Quiz' to determine whether you are a child of the night or quiver at the mere thought of anything frightful. The app also includes a '3 Truths and a Lie' trivia game all about Barnabas Collins.

I haven't seen the film yet but I am excited to catch a glimpse over the spooky season with a bowl full of popcorn. In the meantime, I have a copy of the Dark Shadows DVD to give away to one lucky reader. Giveaway is opened to residents of Canada and the US with a valid street address. No P.O. Boxes please.

US/CAN/UK - #Win a copy of "Coven" by Diane Wing

You may remember my review of "The True Nature of Tarot" by Diane Wing. I recently received a copy of her novel Coven: The Scrolls of the Four Winds. The story begins in ancient Mesopotamia with a powerful coven of 4 women known as the Triad Witches. Fast forward to present day, the Triad Witches have reincarnated together over many lifetimes; although mostly unaware of the ties that bind them. The sisters undergo a process of awakening and embark on a journey together, protectors of the Scrolls of the Four Winds.

I really enjoy Diane's writing style a great deal. Her use of description paints a very detailed scene that is remarkably easy to visualize. It is as though she has taken you by the hand and brought you to each individual scene allowing you to witness the story first hand. She is very good at describing everything eloquently as her inner eye sees it and conveying that image to the reader.

This book is not only a beautifully crafted story, it also comes filled with lots of useful knowledge that can be applied to create light where there is shadow. There are a couple of chapters at the end of the book that I recommend that everyone go back and reflect upon occasionally. I've gone back and read it 3 times already. The information is highly beneficial and resonates with me strongly. Which brings me to another thing I love about Diane's work, she pours her heart and essence into her writing. I can only respond to that with love, love and more love.

This book serves as a reminder of the power of forgiveness and self acceptance.


I have 1 copy of Coven: The Scrolls of the Four Winds to giveaway to one lucky reader. This giveaway is open to residents of the United States, Canada and the UK.

#Review - Aloe Cadabra Personal Lubricant #Adult-Oriented @aloecadabra

The majority of water based personal lubricants on the market are filled with various chemicals. Personally speaking, I don't want any of those chemicals coming near my lady parts. I have sensitive skin and I found that over the years my sensitivity to synthetic ingredients has only increased. No one mentioned that I would also be sensitive to the ingredients in every single lube I've tried. No one talks about that stuff, they should.

Years ago Astroglide lube used to be a favorite of ours. Over time, I found myself increasingly uncomfortable with each use... too much heat uncomfortable.  I had similar experiences with K-Y Jelly and Wet. I stopped using lubricants all together, opting to just be careful and risk harm to my body because the alternative weighed heavier.

A month ago, I stumbled upon Aloe Cadabra. They sell a water based Aloe Vera lubricant made with natural and safe ingredients. It is marketed towards woman experiencing vaginal dryness menopause, or anyone who is looking for silicone free or petroleum free lubricant. Fortunately, I will not experience the menopausal life changes for a few more years and my vagina has been functioning just fine to my knowledge, again - no one talks about these things. I approached Aloe Cadabra curious about this toy friendly lube and I wondered how it measured up to its toxic competition.

Aloe Cadabra comes in 4 varieties. I got to try the Tahitian Vanilla variety which has a very subtle aroma. I love that this lube is sweetened with Organic Stevia; everything in this lube is food grade. This lubricant made from Organic Aloe is also PH balanced for a woman's body.

The lubricant isn't completely clear like most others on the market. It is pale yellow, cloudy and almost honey-like. It isn't sticky and clean up is a breeze. I'm thrilled that this product doesn't deliver the same "chemical burning sensation" that other lubes so lovingly provide. This product is fantastic and I will definitely be a return customer.

You can reach out to Aloe Cadabra on Facebook and Twitter.

Gardening: My Broccoli Bolted

I awoke this morning after a couple days of tropical storm winds and heavy rain to a broccoli plant that had bolted. This happens during extreme temperature shifts which we did experience here in coastal Nova Scotia. I did not mulch around the broccoli which probably would have helped. I cut of the top and although it is late and might not grow new sides, I'm going to leave it and see if it does anyway. You can't eat broccoli once it has flowered. As is the case with many herbs and plants, once it goes to seed it becomes extremely bitter. It really ruins the taste of the plant.

I am very grateful for the rain that fell though, my muscles have been achy. I have been in dire need of a muscle soak in some Epsom salt. Since we have a well, we monitor our water consumption quite heavily during the dry season and conserve where ever possible. After all of that rain, the land is replenished and our well has risen quite a bit. I am looking forward to soaking my sore muscles a great deal.

I harvested some more of my tomatoes, as early as the shine develops on their skin they can be harvested. This is the time to put them away in a dark cool place. When you want a tomato grab any that have started to turn red. If none have turned red just bring a couple up into the light and they will turn red in a few days on their own.

I brought a tomato plant in the house last year and successfully coaxed it to blossom and I harvested an additional two tomatoes, slowly over the course of months using natural lighting. It wasn't much of a yield and the tomatoes were very small but it was really neat to know that I could do it. Maybe someday I'll get a low wattage vegetation light for inside and get a really good start on my crops over the winter.

#Win an Omega-3 Supplement from Ascenta [US/CAN] - #Review

I approached Ascenta about doing a product review and I was very impressed with the companies prompt service. Not only were they very happy to help me but the product arrived swiftly and right to my door. Ascenta offers a variety of liquid Omega 3 vitamins in a variety of flavors. I was interested initially in the Mango flavored NutraSea formula but I thought it would be in my bodies best interest to supplement with vitamin D now that the days are getting shorter. Even the idea of those shorter days depresses me... this is why I need the vitamin D. I feel SO good in the summer.

The product comes packaged in a 200 ml amber bottle and should last for approximately 40 adult doses. The product is safe for children aged 1 - 13. The dose for children is half that of an adult dose, allowing for 80 doses per bottle. The product should be stored away from light and heat and it is important to refrigerate and consume the product within 100 days of opening. Since it is flavored it is easy to forget that it is a fish oil. The texture will remind you that it is indeed an oil and not apple juice. When you open the bottle the smell of the apple hits you immediately. There is no fishy taste whatsoever. If the texture of the oil bothers you still, I recommend drizzling your serving on a small salad  where you might not notice it as much. I didn't have any problems taking it as it is but I realize there are sensitive pallets. My husband quite enjoyed it and was impressed that it contained good cholesterol.

I have one bottle of NutraSea to give away to one lucky reader. Enter using the convenient Rafflecopter form below!

#Review - Delicious Crunchy Cookies @ElfCEO

Enjoy Life sent me their new line of Crunchy Cookies to review. They have 4 flavors, Chocolate Chip, Double Chocolate, Sugar Crisp, Vanilla Honey Graham. These cookies are gluten free, vegan and kosher. They contain no artificial ingredients and are made with a variety of wholesome flours. I personally love that the cookies are free of the 8 most common allergens. A typical serving size is 2 cookies and for those of you counting calories, the Vanilla Honey Graham weighs in at 110 calories per serving.

My favorite was the Sugar crisp cookie hands down with the Vanilla Honey Graham a close second. Both of them had a really sweet taste and that appealed to me. I didn't want to share, it tasted so delicious. In the end, I really had no choice but to share with the children and the hubby.  I need to lead by example and not be a hypocrite. I wouldn't be fair to tell my kids to share and not share with them, not to mention, the kids really do love cookies. The sugar crisp variety was the cookie champion for my oldest son, while the youngest preferred the Double Chocolate. My least favorite cookie was the chocolate chip cookie, it didn't do it for me like the others. One thing I really love about this company is their ingredient glossary.

Carrot Hugs for All!

I love it when vegetables have human characteristics, within reason of course. Too human would look a little creepy and while that could be fun, it isn't quite what I mean. 

Anyone who knows me, knows that I am a lover of hugs. They can comfort the wounded and they spread joy. I pulled my little carrot friend here out of the dirt recently and I must say, it looks like it wants to dispense hugs to all the people of the land. Its carrot arms are opened wide for you.

Chive Blossoms and other Edible Flowers

My Chives have been blossoming which is fine by me, they are quite beautiful. I love watching things grow, including my kids. Although, sometimes their rate of growth makes me feel a tad "aged".

I found this really wonderful site on edible flowers that I want to share with everyone. So much useful information on that page, I encourage everyone to have a lil peak.

#Review - Back to School with Clif Crunch Bars @clifbar

I recently received a few CLIF Crunch bars to review. To be honest, I'm thrilled! I really love CLIF bars and their wide variety of flavors so I am very grateful to once again work with this company. These bars make excellent back to school lunch box options for your children. They are also a great item to keep in your desk at work for those hold me over moments. What amazed me about these bars is the taste of each one resembled a baked good with an impeccable taste that reminded me of my childhood. The only difference being the very crunchy texture of the rolled oats. The great thing about these is that they are made with healthy ingredients so there is no guilt for filling your body with garbage. CLIF Crunch bars are made with 70% Organic ingredients and do NOT contain trans fats, high fructose corn syrup, artificial sweeteners, artificial flavors or ingredients containing GMO's.

Each package of CLIF Crunch contains 2 thin bars. Together they contains a serving of whole grains, 4 grams of protein and has 3 grams of dietary fiber. The classic peanut butter flavor of the peanut butter bar reminds me of a crunchy peanut butter cookie. I happily devoured this bar. Maybe I'm a fan of fruit flavored deliciousness but I must say, the fruity taste of the Blueberry Crisp bar really floored me. It tastes reminded me so much of my grandmothers homemade blueberry muffins. The White Chocolate Macadamia Nut bar reminds me so much of squares that I've sampled in the past at baby showers. I'm a fan of white chocolate and it really does satisfy a different craving altogether than the other two bars. The CLIF Crunch bars are also available in Chocolate Chip. You can find CLIF bars at your local Whole Foods, Bulk Barn, Choices Markets or London Drugs. They can also be found in the natural food aisle at most local grocery stories and most Health Food stores.

#Review - Neutrogena® Rapid Clear

Occasionally, I receive a product that is not organic, natural or green; but I still want to give it a fair review. I may not agree with the ingredients used in the product but the product is still effective and it gets the job done. About a week ago, I received an All-In-1 Facial Scrub and an All-In-1 Facial Lotion as a Klout Perk. These two products are a part of the Neutrogena® Rapid Clear - All In 1 Acne Control product line. While I was not required to blog about these products, I would still like to share my opinion with everyone.

As I said in the above paragraph, I do not care for the ingredients used in this product. It does not, however, prevent the effectiveness of the product; though from my perspective long term use would equate an imbalance in the skins oil production. While I would prefer to see the company utilize more natural/organic ingredients, the product is quite effective in the short term. Meaning that the scrub effectively cleans and dries out my skin in an effort to keep any current acne and (as the product claims) future acne at bay. It has been extremely humid in coastal Nova Scotia this last week so everyone is extra oily and sticky and I barely put a dab of the scrub on my finger tip and it cleaned and cut through all of that oil. I am curious to see how effective the product would be in the winter months when my skin is a little dryer/weathered. It should be noted the primary non-medicinal ingredient in the scrub is alcohol which is noted for it's drying properties. It did not create any patches of dried skin on my face and the lotion did a terrific job at replenishing my skins moisture without leaving my skin greasy.

It is important to note that the vast majority of products I use are chemical free or contain less chemicals then what you will find in the grocery store so the amount of product needed many differ greatly for someone who perhaps doesn't care as much about what is in the ingredients they purchase as the tolerance for those chemicals is different.

Disclaimer: The Klout link above is a referral link and if you aren't a member I encourage you to join. They occasionally offer great perks to members with a high influence. If 6 more people sign up under me I can get VIP Klout which is a new feature and I have no idea what it entails. I received this product as a Klout Perk from Klout and Neutrogena. I was not obligated to write a review. 

Cucumber Trellis Town and the English Cucumber

I've harvested a little over a third of my potatoes. I've been away a lot this summer and when I returned from the New Glasgow Jubilee with my hubby and his band a lot of my potato plants were sun scalded. Animals had been at the exposed potatoes and the leaves had already started to whither and die because they were reaching maturity. I planted the potatoes in 3 batches this year and the first batch was ready.  So, I dug up all of the plants from batch #1 and used the remaining dirt to bury the next 2 batches of potatoes so they don't get scalded by the sun. You lose a few potatoes when that happens.

Cucumber Trellis Town is producing a wonderful yield of cucumbers. I have been fortunate enough to eat a fresh cucumber salad every day for the last week. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to keep away from the salt and as a result I am very bloated. Time to drink more water.

I'm excited to try the English Cucumbers that are growing. They were planted a couple weeks behind this variety in Trellis town but they are catching up quite nicely. I prefer the skin and crunch of the English Cucumbers. This variety I tend to peel because I dislike the texture of the skin.

There is something very satisfying about sitting next to growing things and just breathing in the beauty of this life.

Cucumber Trellis Town and the Buzzing Bees

I took these pictures a couple weeks ago, shortly after I began training the cucumbers to climb the trellis that I provided. I love that they are growing so well inside of a pallet. I have 8 cucumber plants, some oregano and an unexpected green pepper plant growing inside of this pallet. I'm contemplating transplanting the pepper plant however. There just isn't enough room for it to grow. Although, I really can't see it making it to maturity, it won't have a chance unless I move it.
All I hear is the buzzing of bees. My mother is quite allergic but I do not fear them, instead I am grateful that they pollinate the flowers of my garden. With love, I roam.

#Review - Lemon Lemongrass Body Moisturizer

Dr. Hauschka Cosmetica is based out of Germany. They offer a wide range of natural face and body care products for all different skin types and hair types. The company was launched in 1967 by a holistic pharmaceutical company called WALA Heilmittel.

I received a bottle of Lemon Lemongrass Body Moisturizer to review. While I really enjoy the scent of the product, the scent didn't initially appeal to me as a moisturizer. It is a very fresh smelling scent that I think would be very enjoyable in a natural fabric softener, laundry detergent. It would even be wonderful in a reed diffuser in a kitchen or eating area.

The smell of the lemon hits you immediately, the lemongrass takes away some of the intensity of the lemon providing an aromatic balance. The scent was very strong when I first applied the moisturizer but after a short period of time it faded and became increasingly pleasant. As a moisturizer, it is non-greasy and lightweight and it leaves no visible residue or oils. It was quickly absorbed into my skin and I did notice that my skin felt slightly firmer where I applied the moisturizer.

The Rows are Plentiful, Mr. Potato Head

You might notice that the stems of this potato plant are blue instead of green like most traditional potato plants. This is a potato plant from the bag of blue potatoes that I planted. They were the last out of the 3 different varieties of potatoes that are growing in my back yard this year.

This is the first potato blossom of the season. It comes from the first batch of potatoes that were planted. They were from a bag of Russet potatoes in my cupboard that went to seed. There is so much beauty in the grow cycle of all living things and in this beautiful blossom.

I'm sure things are as active underneath the soil as it is above the soil. These potato plants are certainly coming a long way.

Growing Salads with Love

There is something about this angle of my garden that brings me comfort. This is the angle of the garden that I see from my home, perhaps I enjoy it so much because it is familiar. In a way, it is like observing the part of me that is nurturing and connected to the soil. It bring me great joy to grow things.

I am really happy to see that the oregano is recovering from the winter cat attacks. It is flourishing so well that I think I will be able to grow my oregano bed next summer. I would love to have an abundance of freshly grown oregano. 

Earlier in the season I had been a little worried about this pot of chives that had been growing indoors all winter. They were growing much slower then the chives that I had planted in the small garden bed. They are finally starting to thicken a look healthy. 

I've got lettuce planted everywhere. This is one of the heads that is planted amongst the carrots in the small house bed. I am going to make so many salads this summer and I am thrilled.

Homemade: Lemon Chive Dressing

I'm on a bit of a homemade binge right now so I thought I would grab some of the Salt Free Lemon Chive dressing seasoning that I received from a company called Backyard Patch and whip up some salad dressing.  The herbs from Backyard Patch are very inexpensive and even include a few recipes. 

In a mason jar, I combined 1.5 teaspoons of the spice mixture with 1/4 cup of vinegar and 1/2 cup of vegetable oil; I prefer extra virgin olive oil. 

Although it says on the package to let it set for an hour or so, my own experience tells me to let it set for a couple weeks to really bring out the flavor. We also make a Greek vinaigrette from scratch and although you can eat it within the hour, the flavor is much stronger and tangier if you prepare it a couple weeks in advance. All of these dressings and vinaigrette's have a pretty lengthy shelf life.

Disclaimer: I received some products free of charge to try out on behalf of Backyard Patch. Opinions are my own.

Homemade: Lavender Vinegar

I received some Food Grade Lavender from LL Farms on Etsy. We are going to start off by making a Lavender Infused Vinegar that we can use in various other recipes. 

I covered the bottom of a medium sized mason jar with about half an inch of lavender. You can add more/less depending on how strong you want the end solution to be. 

I filled the rest of the jar with White Vinegar and the sealed it shut. Time to put it away in a cool dark place for a couple of week to really bring out the flavor. In two weeks this lavender vinegar will be ready to enhance other recipes, including some that may surprise you.

Disclaimer: I received this product for free, I was not required to say nice things about it. This post is based on my personal product experience.

The Water Dampens the Soil, Not My Spirits

I try and check my garden immediately after any rain storm. It gives me the opportunity to check for any damage that might have been caused by the weather. I frequently find uprooted plants from porcupines and other creatures mucking about my garden; having a tasty munch. The incidents arise after storms when the air is fresh and the rain has washed away the scent of predators. While I was outside I snapped a few shots of the babies. 

Here is a bean sprout that just recently surfaced in the garden. He is planted right next to a corn plant. I will be training the bean plant to climb up the corn stalk. 

Fresh droplets of rain.
The very first year I grew a garden we had an abundance heat and it was a dry summer. It was perfect growing conditions for a flourishing row of tomatoes. Unfortunately, the next year brought sadness to all of the Tomatoes. They sprouted happily and then died... all of them. It was far too cold. This year looks quite promising for the tomatoes.

I started constructing a fence for the peas. I have the posts in the ground and I have the actual pea fence. I just haven't tacked it upon the posts. They will soon need the added support.

#Review - Righteously Raw Chocolate

There is a company called Righteously Raw and they produce bars that are both delicious and nutritious. Made with Raw ingredients these bars are Gluten Free, Organic, Vegan and Kosher. They have no refined sugars and it are Soy free. I was very happy to learn that their products contain no gmo's.

I received the Maqui Rose Bar and the Acai Cacao Bar from Righteously Raw to review for all of you lovely people. The Acai Cacao Bar is made with 80% dark chocolate. The middle layer of the bar is crafted with Organic freeze dried acai berries, so smooth; and it perfectly compliments the chocolate. The result is a deliciously bitter and healthy treat that melts in your mouth. I find it interesting that one of the ingredients is Himalayan Pink Salt, it stands out in my mind because I don't see that on labels very often. Raw Agave Nectar was used as a sweetener and it is very low on the glycemic index. This bar has an Orac score of 44,220.

The Maqui Rose Bar is a sweet tasting blend of raspberry, beet, chocolate and rose. I really thought that this was going to be my least favorite of the two bars I was sent when I was informed which flavors I would receive in the mail. Boy, was I wrong. The inside layer was a lovely truffle made with maqui berry, a super food that is very high in antioxidants and is also a powerful anti-inflammatory. It was interesting to learn that the maqui berry is high in cancer fighting Anthocyans and Poly-Phenols. The bar was made in an allergen and nut free chocolate factory. There are approximately 3 servings per bar.

Disclaimer: I received 2 different flavors of Righteously Raw bars to try out and express my honest opinion. This review is based upon my honest experience with the product. Your experience may differ from my own.

Mountainous Sprouts and a Garden Kingdom

This is what my garden looks like currently. I started placing hay between the rows to keep the weeds down but I ran out so I will need to wait until we trim our ditches. We usually wait until the end of June to trim them because it the growth of grass slows down.


Here is the best looking cucumber plant I have right now. One of the leaves got nibbled on a few weeks ago but it is my fastest growing cucumber plant right now. 

It is nice to see the lettuce thriving in the big garden this year. Last year it would only grow up by the house. I think the soil in the big garden might have been a little too acidic for it to grow well last year. 

I am very happy that I have broccoli growing in my garden this year. It is one of my favorite vegetables and for some reason I neglected to plant it each year.  They just recently sprouted and I am so excited to watch it grow.

Dead Man's Float

After the rain, I found this insect floating in a water droplet. Pretty sure it isn't swimming... although it is much easier to appreciate the beauty when you imagine it doing the backstroke.

The Garden Times - All the While We Grow

Potatoes grow with very little work. Most of the work really goes into preparing the soil with the essential nutrients and making sure that the soil is fluffy enough for the potatoes to grow spaciously. They are usually the first plants in the garden to grow. Unfortunately they bloom early and the leaves die off when everything else in the garden is just beginning to flourish. So, they haven't quite mastered perfect timing in this symphony of growth and beauty; at least they keep well in the ground. 

Proud and Strong

I love eating fresh radishes from the garden. I could nibble on them all day, they make me a little gassy though. It is probably better that I don't actually nibble on them all day, it might cause me a little unnecessary pain. They are so tasty and I really enjoy the spicy after taste. As a child, I used to eat the spicy skin first and then cool my mouth off with the refreshing white globe. Sometimes it is fun to do things as you would when you were a child. There is something very reward to the spirit to bask in the simple pleasures. I wish I could plant them continuously all season long, unfortunately when the days grow shorter I won't be able to grow them any more. I tried once... even though I knew I wouldn't yield any results. The greens grow fine, so you would have some bitter salad greens but no radish root.

Red, delicious, gleaming globes of splendor.

I haven't had a lot of luck growing spinach successfully in the past. This year, I only had a single plant that grew. This is the most successful I have ever been. I attribute my lack of success to a bad pack of seeds and possible inadequate soil conditions in the past. I recently bought another pack of seeds from a more reputable company and hopefully they will sprout. In the meantime, the spinach plant in the tiny garden is growing wonderfully. It has also been less prone to attacks since I have been luring the slugs away with bits of fresh veggie compost.

When I grow up, I want to be a Greek Salad.

#Review - Raw Honey Sticks @littleguyhoney

Williams Honey Farm is based in Franklin, Tennessee. They raise their bees without the use of harsh chemicals or antibiotics. They sent me this package of pure Raw Honey Sticks. It has been said that eating a teaspoon of raw honey a day will help boost the immune system and potentially even provide relief to those with allergies. Many people swear by homemade concoctions including honey, ginger/cayenne, onions and lemon juice.  

These packages of Raw Honey Sticks contain 15 straws, each are filled with 1 tsp of Raw Honey. So if you were looking to get a teaspoon of quality honey filled with delicious enzymes these raw honey sticks would be an adequate 2 week supply. The taste of the honey is bolder than store bought honey and I love the natural sweetness. In the moment, I wished that the straw was never ending so I could eternally taste the sweet nectar. I am reminded of the sugar straws I would get at the store as a child, although these are actually good for you. 

The package design sure looks spiffy. These Raw Honey Sticks would make wonderful gifts for a lover of homemade things. Someone who has been taking strides towards a healthier lifestyle would also appreciate a gift like this. They can ship up to 4 packs of Honey Sticks for the price of one. This is certainly something to consider when making a purchase. It makes sense to purchase a 2 month supply at once.
