Amarelli Liquorice


"Liquorice is the oldest candy in the world, and the best liquiriza in the world is made in the town of Calabria by the Amarelli family, since 1731, and still by hand.

Under the watchful eye of the “master liquorice maker,” Amarelli has paired the ancient handcrafted method with hightech computerized equipment to produce today’s liquorice products that are uniform and unchanging in quality. With neither additives nor sweeteners, with its delicious taste and distinctive flavour, Amarelli liquorice is worlds apart from today’s manufactured candy that’s stuffed with beeswax and sugar, cornstarch and other additives.

Amarelli liquorice candies come in three varieties: 

  • Plain (for purists!)
  • Mint-flavoured
  • Anise 



Presented in delightful little metal boxes with antique accents, you’ll want to keep and collect them!

Price: $4 (20 g box)
Now available in Toronto at Pascale Gourmet 2393 Younge St. (at Eglinton) and in numerous stores across Quebec."

Move



Hi everyone!


Even though it is just the beginning of August, I cannot believe how quickly summer has flown by.


I am officially letting all of you know that I am moving to Georgia in the next few days. I will be coming back to Toronto here and there but will spend the majority of the year in the U.S


I am looking forward to the opportunities that come my way


This news may come to a shock to many of you, but I felt that this decision is for the best.




I will update shortly. (and will most likely post some pictures from the summer!)

Must-Have Body Care Products


I did a post a month ago about my favorite face products. Since then I have received emails requesting if I could compile a list of absolute favorite body care products.

I love so many products and don't have a certain number of products I absolutely need to have. So, I decided to compile a list of products that I find to work very well.


1. Body Scrub - It's nice to use a body scrub once every few days. I read online that you can make your own but I have yet to try that...

True Blue Spa Fresh Foaming Body Buff from Bath and Body $20



2. I always get tired of body wash by the time the bottle is a quarter through, so, I always use different kinds. I alternate between different products and apply whichever depending on my mood. 

A type I could typically use would be...





3. Cream/ Lotion - Like body washes, I have a tendency to get tired of the type, so I don' t have one particular kind I always use. I constantly use and try different products. Ex: I tend to apply a body butter post shower, or at night. During the day before going out, I opt for a lotion that is not thick, and that absorbs quickly.

Example of a body butter I would use 

A Bath & Body Works Body Butter

Example of a lotion I would use


Actually, one cream I always have around is Eucerin's Original Creme. I don't use it all the time, but it is the perfect product to have around when your skin is in need of relief. The texture of the creme is very thick, and it is great for sensitive skin. 

Of course, Vaseline petroleum jelly and Vitamin E gel are always great to have around. 

 4. Hand Cream 


Vichy Lipidose Mains
