Photo Diary: Six Mile Lake / 2

Larkspur Vintage | Photo Diary: Six Mile Lake / 2Monday mornings fog in Six Mile Lake was really something spectacular to behold. Some of my favourite images that we all shot are from that morning navigating (I say navigating as if I was any help at all…my canoe partner was the only one with a paddle, so, you’re welcome for nothing) through fog so thick it was difficult to find our way back to the cottage. Kira and I were also instructed on how to shoot stars in the night sky (where else would they be?), but mine were pretty unfocused, and look more like a really grainy painting, but hey, at least I tried.

This will be it for the images from Six Mile Lake. I hope you like them, and let me know if you want me to share more stuff like this in the future. Love you all!

Photo Diary: Six Mile Lake / 1

Larkspur Vintage | Photo Diary: Six Mile Lake / 1This past weekend me and some of my best pals headed to Six Mile Lake to spend the weekend at a cottage celebrating Meaghan’s 30th birthday. I had actually been to this cottage two years ago, celebrating another friend’s 30th, so it was kind of strange to be back here and noticing how different and yet the same my life is. We got pretty lucky with some choice weather, and some eerily foggy mornings, that we certainly took full advantage of both mornings we woke there with sunrise canoe rides and a lot of laughs. I’ve decided to split this post into (most likely) three posts so I don’t bombard you with a big ol’ photo dump all at once, but I can’t wait (well obviously I can) to share the rest with you. It has been quite awhile since I posted a photo diary, or really, since I posted photos of anything other than myself. I’m still sticking to my wits that I don’t want to photograph a ton of my personal life like I used to when I first started this blog, but I do want to get back to sharing a bit more of my life, when it’s worth documenting, and the people that fill it with happiness.

Your Tea: Tiny Tea

Larkspur Vintage | Your TeaLarkspur Vintage | Your TeaI was recently contacted by Your Tea to see if I was interested in trying their Tiny Tea TEAtox, and after investigating the brand and this particular tea, there seemed no reason to say no; I’ve always loved a good cup of tea. I generally only drink tea in the evening as a way of relaxing, which means it’s exclusively an herbal tea so I don’t get all caffeinated. I’d never really considered trying a teatox (it’s like the it thing to do right now), but Tiny Tea seemed like it could only benefit me, so why the heck not?! Using traditional Chinese Medicine Principles, this particular blend boasts that it helps with bloating (big issue for me), indigestion (yep, an issue), problematic skin (sometimes!), cellulite (I’m sure there is some down there), reduction of excess weight (I’m not the spring chicken I used to be), increase energy (omg, huge issue!) and PMS (oh dear lord, my worst enemy). As you can see, I have an issue with most of these things; sadly, it often seems like my guts are fighting a battle against me.

I have yet to start this TEAtox, so I will be sure to give you a full review once I have finished the 14 day teatoxification of my demonic insides, and let you know how it worked for me. I’m a bit apprehensive about the actual consumption of this tea, as I’m supposed to have it 3 times a day, 30 mins before or after meals, which seems easy in theory, but I’m not sure it will be as easy in practice. It may be a case of having to bring a couple bags with me while I’m on the go and finding a way to drink them…we shall see.

Have you guys heard of this brand? Do you think you would give it a go? Think TEAtoxes are stupid? They have many different teas for both mood and body, which do you think would benefit you?Larkspur Vintage | Your TeaLarkspur Vintage | Your TeaLarkspur Vintage | Your TeaLarkspur Vintage | Your Tea*some or all of the items featured in this post were given to me as a gift from the maker, but I only write about products that I genuinely enjoy; no BS here folks.
