A Quick Chat

I just want to have a quick chat about the products in my last photo. These are two of my favourites from the selection at Barefoot Venus. The company, local to Kelowna, B.C., carries a huge variety of bath and body products. Their Instant Hand Repair, pictured here, is my absolute favourite hand cream. Ever. All of the Barefoot Venus products smell amazing (my personal favourite scents are Vanilla Shake and Sugar Leaf), and the best part? Free of parabens (and much more)!

It powders all the wood,

It fills with alabaster wool

The wrinkles of the road.

Till it is lost in fleeces;

It flings a crystal veil

On stump and stack and stem, —

The summer’s empty room,

Acres of seams where harvests were,

Recordless, but for them.

It ruffles wrists of posts,

As ankles of a queen, —

Then stills its artisans like ghosts,

Denying they have been.
