When one Door Closes, Another Door Opens: Toronto

 

Yoga

My farewell gifts

As my time in the north comes to an end, I am starting a new chapter with my husband Corey with my MOVE TO TORONTO TOMORROW! Toronto will be our new home base for the time being. A new story begins; when one door closes another door opens. Adventure lies ahead (and lots of travel opportunities with Porter Airlines & Porter Escapes). Although I am saddened to leave my new job and amazing friends behind (is it an option to take them with me?), I am READY, OPEN, and EXCITED for what’s to come.

My First Seacret Mineral Mud Facial

Beautiful You Aesthetics by Colleen

Step 1- mineral cleansing and toning

Beautiful You Aesthetics by ColleenMarch seems to be the month for rest, reprieve, and replenishing after the long winter season in Northeastern Ontario. I’m slowly coming out of hibernation. I can’t believe it–I’ve nearly survived my first winter in the north! Thanks to good advice from the locals of how to survive the winter and a mighty stock of winter-wear, I’m nearly there. I’ve kept myself busy by sampling the best in area from yoga, outdoor sports, and winter adventures, to warm spa experiences. I don’t think I would have made it through the winter season without a balance of outdoor expeditions and relaxing indoor activities to follow. I needed something to sooth my cool body and frost bitten skin after being outside for hours on end. With spring in sight, I’m looking forward to more sunny days, blue skies, and the end of winter. I can’t thank Colleen of Beautiful You Aesthetics enough for treating me to my first Seacret mineral mud facial. Surely the minerals, vitamins, antioxidants, essential oils, and natural ingredients derived from the Dead Sea will awaken and rejuvenate my deprived skin and prepare it for what’s to come. “Spring is a time to find out where you are, who you are, and move toward where you are going” – Penelope Trunk. Thank you Colleen for helping me peel the layers back so to speak and preparing my soul for new beginnings and unknown journeys.
