  With the weather beginning to warm up summer will soon be here. Time to get out and enjoy the great outdoors. Can’t take vacation time? Don’t despair – a weekend getaway is the perfect solution to relax, renew, and recover from those crazy work weeks. Grab a drink, message your girls, and keep reading because we have the ultimate planning guide for your weekend getaway. First up for consideration is budget. Knowing your budget is critical to creating a stress free break. No one wants to worry about money on a trip. Don’t forget to factor into the budget spending money for food, shopping, admission fees, cabs, buses, and tips. Travelling in groups for a weekend can bring people together. Try to choose friends who get along – it will avoid any unnecessary drama. Pick travel dates and select a destination. For weekend getaways opt for a closer destination to minimize travel time and maximize the fun. Some of our favourite local travel spots include: Ottawa, Montreal, Camping at Bruce Peninsula, Cottage rentals in Huntsville or Kawarthas, Vineyard tours in Niagara, and Blue Mountain in Collingwood. So now with the location, dates, and people to travel with decided; next up create bucket lists for: “must-see”, “must-eat”, and “must-experience”. Ask each person to provide ideas and ensure at least one item from everyone’s list is included. This will help ensure everyone can experience something they wanted and helps maintain group harmony. Selecting accommodations should take into account the “bucket-list” items.

Upper Canada Soap on Oprah.com. No Big Deal.

Of course, it’s a big deal! Upper Canada Soap’s Naturally Body Butter Balm made it onto Oprah.com’s  Top 13 Multipurpose Beauty Products list! The moment I found out, the clouds parted and a gospel choir appeared, singing, “Hallelujah.” Since I was a little girl, I was always in love with all things Oprah. As children, you grow up answering the biggest question of all: “What do you want to be when you grow up?” Every time this question was asked in class, hands shot up into the air. When picked, each kid would yell out, “Astronaut!,” “Skateboarder!,” or “Dentist!” Not I, my friends … not I. When the teacher asked me what I wanted to be, I sat up straight, in a zen-like state, looked into her eyes and calmly yet confidently stated, “Oprah.” True story. The best thing about this miraculous, once-in-a-lifetime event is that it got the word out about Upper Canada Soap as a fresh and innovative bath, body and beauty company that produces fabulous products! In addition, the article put a spotlight on one of our best selling items – the Naturally Body Butter Balm. This is why it made it onto Oprah’s list: 1.  It moisturizes cracked heels 2.  Hydrates dry elbows 3.  Conditions lips 4.  Nourishes cuticles 5.  Grooms your eyebrows 6.  Comforts a chapped nose 7.  Softens dry hands 8.  Tames flyaway hair That’s amazing! Show me a man who can multi-task as well as the Naturally Body Butter Balm and I will marry
