Do you want to bring your brunch game to the next level in less than ten minutes? Do I hear a heck yes! IMO, adding rose to anything always takes it up a notch. Like this Honey and Rose Broiled Grapefruit. Not only does it take less than 10 minutes to prepare from start to finish but it has a beautiful, subtle hint of rose that comes across as super fancy. We all know by now how much I love my rose and cardamom (Rose Cardamom Latte, Orange Cardamom Caramel) and I think that cardamom, rose and honey combine so effortlessly together. You hardly have to do any work and the ingredients will mingle together beautifully. Are you ready to try it?
Let’s talk about roses for a moment shall we? Rose is a beautiful and powerful plant used in herbal remedies. Their petals are great for stress and are heart opening (why else would we give roses to our loved ones?) as well as being a wonderful remedy for skin conditions. Rose essential oils are used in some of my favourite skincare products including this Rose Renewal and Frankincense Firming Fluid and this Rose Best Skin Ever, this Rose Glow Face Creme and this Rose Glow Complexion Mist. Can you tell that I really love Living Libations? Roses are high in vitamin C and and make a lovely tea! You can try making a blend with rose petals, lavender and lemon balm to relax before bedtime.
Thursday brings along another list of things I have found around the interwebs:
Have you heard that the North Pole is above 0 degrees?! That is 30 degrees C higher than average.
Just finished The History of Bees and it really makes you ponder the health and wellness of the living things we share the planet with and what we can and should be doing to help them (and us!). I will be picking my next book from this list.
Tessa and Scott again. I mean, how can I not include this when they are skating to The Tragically Hip?! This basically embodies CANADA.
A friend of mine gave me a sample of The Blue Cocoon by May Lindstrom and I am in love! It is really pricey but you only need the tiniest bit. I am guessing a jar would last the whole year.
