Get Into The Halloween Spirit!

Happy Halloween everyone! How are you guys getting into the Halloween spirit? Whether it is dressing up like your favourite cartoon character, wearing black and orange, carrying your favourite orange (Monte Napoleone) Alex Folzi suitcase, Halloween has become a national holiday that everyone likes to celebrate.

The Monte Napoleone is our beautiful bright orange suitcase and would go perfectly with your jack-o-lantern! It can also carry your makeup, a change of clothes, and a spare pair of flats for after a night out (girls you know what i’m talkin’ about).

I know pumpkin pie is not a traditional Halloween dessert, but what better way to use up all the pumpkin you buy?!

I used silken tofu to make this pumpkin pie truly guilt free. What are your recipe secrets for pumpkin pie?


What do Soirette Macarons and Alex Folzi Bags have in common?

Soirette Macarons & Tea is located on West Pender Street in downtown Vancouver and is a 10-15 minute walk from Waterfront station. When I first entered the store, I was amazed to see the array of beautiful macarons on display! Every handcrafted macaron looked absolutely gorgeous. Some of their unqiue flavours include: apple pie, pineapple wasabi, mango black pepper, pink peppercorn, and black olive. Say what?!

Now, what do these beautiful looking macarons have in common with Alex Folzi suitcases?

The beautiful eye catching colours! The newest collection of Alex Folzi suitcases were inspired by the most beautiful cities and landmarks in Europe, while taking on the majestic colour of each city. Choose one, or collect them all. I can already picture someone carrying the adorable Razmataz yellow suitcase (inspired by Amsterdam) in one hand, while eating an equally delicious looking macaron in the other.

Feast your eyes ladies and gents.

Organic Beauty products

Skin is the most sensitive organ of our body and what we apply on our skin directly affects its quality. Organic beauty products contain ingredients that are grown without using synthetic herbicides, pesticides and organisms that are modified genetically. Organic products also do not use artificial chemicals, fillers, petroleum waxes and other harmful additives. They are therefore entirely natural and healthy for use. Having been manufactured with high quality, superior ingredients, organic beauty products are more effective and work better.

Most of the organic skin care products and organic make up use ingredients such as humectants, preservatives, emulsifiers, emollients and surfactants. These ingredients come in both synthetic as well as natural forms. While the synthetic variety is harmful, natural form of these ingredients are highly beneficial.

In order to obtain a glowing and healthy skin, it is important to follow a routine skin care regiment. In order to protect your skin from pollutants, it is essential to cleanse your skin to enhance its elasticity and texture. Regular use of non-organic products is harmful for the skin as they are made of harsh chemicals, the residue of which can clog the pores.

Organic beauty products are ideal for regular use on your skin. Natural ingredients used in these products are excellent for allowing the pores to breathe by opening them. Organic products are also environment friendly. In keeping with the exact requirements of your skin, organic beauty products are specially formulated with ingredients that are highly compatible with the skin and make it look vibrant and healthy.

All organic cosmetics, organic shampoo and organic body care products do not contain harmful ingredients such as artificial colour fragrances, mineral oils, synthetic preservatives and parabens. Most of the high quality organic hair care products and body care products such as organic lotions contain natural ingredients such as Pomegranate oil, Kukui nut oil, Grape kernel oil, Cats-claw, Camellia seed oil, Water lily extract, Vine extract, Sea buckthorn oil and Seed oils.

Organic shampoo for example retains the natural moisture of the hair. In fact, the botanical ingredients in the shampoo are rich in nutrients and infuse the hair with nourishing vitamins and moisturizing oils. This helps maintain the hair healthy and soft. Organic hair cleansers are mild and help clean the scalp in the safest manner.

Natural ingredients present in them combine to bring back the balance to the skin by correcting the imbalance resulting from abuse such as over exposure to sunlight and other environmental pollutants. This ensures a healthy, vibrant and glowing skin.

Organic beauty products are available in many stores that sell organic products. You can also shop for organic products and organic cosmetics online.

Kids give letter to homeowner who didn’t hand out Halloween candy

Most children can’t wait to collect candy on Halloween night, but when homeowners don’t hand out treats some dire consequences can follow.

Some kids calling themselves Children of the Hood wrote a letter to one homeowner in Oshawa, Ont. explaining that he missed Halloween and left the letter in his mailbox. They write that the lady who used to own the house handed out candy apples, “but last night there were no candy apples. Come to think of it there was no candy at all from your home!”

The kids explain the mistake and say the homeowner can fix it next year by passing out chocolate bars. They say they will understand he probably can’t make candy apples because he is a guy and that they receive too many bags of chips so chocolate bars are the perfect solution. Another way to rectify the issue is for the homeowner to deliver candy to the children on Saturday because they will probably have eaten all of their candy from Halloween by then.

But the homeowner didn’t deliver any candy, instead he posted the note on Kijiji saying he is looking for the author.

“Dear Children of Entitlement (and likely their parents),” starts the Kijiji post. “You have gone ahead and reminded me of why I do not want children, and why I weep for the future.”

The homeowner says he was not home on Halloween and has bought a huge amount of candy, which he will enjoy with his friends on Saturday.
