November: Our Inspiration, Picks & Happenings
We were spoiled in Toronto with a warm and sunny October. And although we are still very much in a late-summer state of mind, the start of November seems to be finally bringing in that crisp sweater weather and with it a desire to stay warm, cozy and grounded.
With that in mind, we've rounded up some our favourite products for the month. We’ve also included some seasonal recipes and fun events happening in the city to keep you inspired during these shorter days and longer nights.
Noto Genet Stain Stick
Add a pop of colour to your makeup routine with Noto's newest Genet Stain Stick in a deep and rich "wine" shade.
Interested in learning more about green beauty? Join us for a Clean Makeup 101 Master Class in-store on November 13th at 7pm. Makeup artist and clean beauty consultant Christine Jairamsingh will walk you through in’s and out’s of effortless clean makeup application. Learn more and purchase your ticket here!
Nothing Fancy Cookbook
Just in time for "having people over" season, Alison Roman's latest cookbook, Nothing Fancy helps you nail dinner with unfussy food, unstuffy vibes, and the permission to be imperfect.
We love this Alison Roman recipe from Bon Appetit and this one from The New York Times, too. Already an Alison Roman fan or want to learn more? We can't wait for her Toronto Book Launch event here!
Woodlot Rose & Palo Santo Candle
Woodlot just transformed our best-selling and fan-favoured Rose & Palo Mist into a candle. Beautifully packaged, and with that ever-grounding scent, you really can't go wrong.
Still can't get enough of the mist? Get it here!
Pai Avocado & Jojoba Day Cream
Pack in all of the hydration without the heaviness. Pai's Avocado & Jojoba Day Cream is one of our favourites for this time of year with nourishing Avocado and Jojoba extract to soothe and quench skin.
Porter Plastic Portable Bowls
A little lighter than their ceramic version, these beautifully designed portable bowls are helping us get into the fall spirit!
Looking to transform your lunch game? Try this Easy Miso Squash and Ginger Soup from Fran Allen. Top it off with some rice or quinoa and you have yourself a beautiful meal for your new bowl.
Province Apothecary Protecting Face Balm
Though some of us are still in denial, winter is coming. Protect your face, lips, and cuticles with Province Apothecary's Protecting and Restoring Face Balm. The Face Balm is our go-to to ward off chapped skin during the colder months. We regularly host PA Mini Facials and Master Classes in the shop, so keep your eyes on our instagram for new dates coming soon.
