Baby, it’s (really really) cold outside

frozen WB

 

Do you know why Canadian LOVE to talk about the weather? Because we get crazy-ass temperatures that can change dozens of degrees within days. Tonight, it’s going down to -39 Celsius here in Montreal (-38.2 Fahrenheit). For this reason, we’re holding off shipments for a few days. Not only because the walk to the post office is LONG (it takes me more than 35 minutes even when the weather is warm and I’m NOT a hundred months pregnant…I kid you not, the things I do for you guys. Hug!) but also because this increases the chances of products bursting in transit.

One day next week is going up to a balmy 0, when it will be safe to ship most products again, however we’ve found that the White Willow Perfecting Tonic is a little too volatile (being liquid) to be put in the mail, and so we are holding off on shipping this product until the weather stabilizes a little.

Sorry for the inconvenience, but it’s better this way in the long run.

PS that frost effect on the picture above is from my actual office window! Pretty, right?

You are wearing a coat of armour for a whole other kind of battle.

Let me just be stark about this. You know what you don't want in common with a Sea Captain? Weathered skin. And scurvy, probably. Eat those lemons.

 

"Weathering" happens to everything. It's the law of the universe that all things naturally lean towards chaos and destruction. (It's called entropy, but let's not get too nerdy right now.)

 I’m so over beauty trends. My skin is so sensitive now. I partly blame FOMO for that. Wanting to try everything, my face couldn’t take it. I’ve turned down the volume of the whole “what’s new” and stay in my lane. But, those full face LED devices have caught my eye
