I’ve been thinking back to the first Toronto Flower Market this season in May – looking at all the beautiful flowers has me planning for the next one on August 20th! All the vendors bring a different style, selection and flare to the blooms and I’m telling you, it’s really tough to just choose one bouquet/kind! I love supporting local businesses and it’s right down Queen West so there are a ton of great restaurants and coffee shops there.
I LOVE workshops and DIY projects- it is always super reward for me when I make something on my own. In my 2016 Action Plan post last month, I mentioned some actions that I will take this year to bring more balance into my life and one of them was to take on more DIY projects and workshops so that it gets my creative juices going!
For years, My sister and I both use vegan soaps from Demo Soap, locally produced and based in Toronto Liberty Village. This past Christmas holiday we decided that we would take their Soap Making Workshop together and gift the soaps we make to our friends. It was such a creative experience and we had a ton of fun throughout the whole process! I have provided their contact information below if you would like to take up a workshop with them. It makes a cute date night, fun to do it with friends and family or even plan a small party there. The whole process took about 2 hours long and afterwards you wait about an hour or so to pick up the soaps. During that time, I would recommend going around Liberty Village to visit other stores or grab a bite at Mildred’s Temple Kitchen or School!
With my sis, Karen!
Here are some of their essentials…Lavender is our absolute fave!
Their “treats” section smells good enough to eat!
