Good Local Markets offers Free Farm-to-Market Workshop for Children

As if we didn't love Good Local Markets like crazy, starting this Sunday September 27th, Good Local Markets are partnering with Farm to Market Workshop to offer activities for children ages 3-8 at the markets. The workshops are free and parents must remain onsite during the time. Through a holistic, project-based program, workshops run by instructor, Jennifer Stuart will engage young mind through the exploration of food, farming, nature and life skills. This sounds like heaven for our Itty Bitty Foodies who love to cook, learn about nature and garden though watering a garden with a water gun is probably not what they had in mind. Here are the details of upcoming workshops.

We've just spent five glorious sun-filled days in Napa Valley, California with a nine, seven and two year old and the trip was a smashing success! We enjoyed world-class wines, ate at fine restaurants, visited a geyser and picnicked our way through Napa Valley. Though we had to make some concessions for our napping toddler, there are lots to do in the Napa Valley with kids. Here's how we did it.

Style Surfing: Clarisonic for beautiful skin

Happy Mother's Day to my beautiful Mum and all the other Mothers out there! The last couple of years, my sweet husband, Beefcake has gifted me Clarisonic products and they've been some of most practical gifts I've gotten to maintaining beautiful skin. I'm very lucky that I come from a line of women with gorgeous skin but as you get older, some maintenance is in order. I can honestly say I've used my Clarisonic cleansing brush system and Pedi transformation every single week.
