Peace of Mind and Piece of Luxury with West Lake

West LakeI’m always on the hunt for Canadian made quality natural products free from parabens, chemicals, and petroleum products/by-products. I’m sure you’re with me when I say that I want to know what’s in the products I use and put on my body. Natural products are not only good for us, but they’re also good for the environment. I was lucky enough to be introduced to West Lake Cosmetics on Instagram by a fellow Canadian blogger Couper from Happy Life Pilot Wife who loves using all-natural local products from her home province Ontario, but especially loves West Lake Cosmetics! She told me that she and her family are addicted to the Rosemary Lavender Shampoo Bar. With that being said, I was instantly intrigued, went over to West Lake’s Intstagram account to browse their many photos and immediately wanted to try a shampoo bar myself (among other products), especially since I have never tried one before.

Expanded Roots and Renovated: JustNatural Holistic Spa

JustNatural Holistic Spa

JustNatural Holistic SpaJustNatural Holistic Spa has expanded and has a brand new location in downtown Timmins! The first time I visited Chrislynn at JustNatural Holistic Spa  in the winter of 2014, I sampled the best of what the at-home spa had to offer; I partook in a sensory journey which included: a warm foot soak treatment, leg scrub, a full facial, back massage, and body scrub, mask, and wrap. With Chrislynn’s one-on-one spa care and unique personal touches, my hyperactive and busy-body soul was quickly soothed in the serene and tranquil environment. My second visit to JustNatural Holistic Spa was recently this summer when I had the opportunity to see the spa in its full glory after its recent renovations at its new location. Chrislynn graciously took the time out of her day to give me a tour of the new facility. From the moment I walked into the spa I felt as if I was transported to a modern urban spa in a big city abroad. The vaulted ceilings, natural wood frames, modern décor, and down to earth accents make the spa one of kind in the northern region. It wasn’t long before I found myself in the spa boutique sampling products and making myself right at home. I can’t wait to try out one of their uniquely designed services.

Sampling the Best of JustNatural Holistic Spa

JustNatural Holistic SpaChrislynn from JustNatural Holistic Spa took me through a sensory experience of the many spa treatments at her at-home spa in Timmins, Ontario. Chrislynn’s one-on-one spa care and unique personal touches adds to the serenity and relaxation at the spa. I have been to many spas, but never to an at-home spa and I can say that JustNatural Holistic Spa Spa holds the same standards, if not higher than any other spa. As a natural and holistic spa, Chrislynn uses only all natural and organic products (which I too believe in) to promote health and wellness. Continue reading
