~ Colouring my Hair the Lush way ~

I coloured my hair on the weekend with a Henna Hair Colour (there are 4 to choose from and I chose Caca Marron) which I had bought at Lush, here in Whistler.

~ Lemon Poppy-Seed Muffins & a Morning with the Birds ~

I’m sitting out in the sunshine, on the boulders, just outside my condo, 13 C, little windy out, and waiting for my Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins to come out of the oven. The batter tasted amazing, so I am hoping the muffins do too!!  I have been inspired to try lemon poppy seed muffin recipes because my son loved the ones from the IGA, but of … Continue reading ~ Lemon Poppy-Seed Muffins & a Morning with the Birds ~
