  1. How to deal with a case of the Mondays.
    Making the most of your Monday morning coffee, is this cute, cheeky AF mug. Start the week off strong, and it’s the perfect transition mug to fill it with … well, probably gin. This and many other styles to suit your personality available at It’s Charlow, Darling!

2. What to Drink
It’s that time of year where a chilled white wine is more anticipated than a cozy glass of red. Maybe it’s the longer days, warmer weather, happier moods knowing that patio days aren’t too far off. This is a surprising wonderful mix of Reisling, Pinot Gris, Gewürztraminer, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Viognier. Who says women can never make up their minds. Delicious well-chilled on it’s own, or with the Springtime Hummus Bowl and Roasted Veggies.

3. What we love
We ♥ how Loma Dry Shampoo makes those in between hair wash days, makes your hair look anything but that. It gives hair that 2nd day, lived in feel that we wish we could have every day. Absorbing the impurities, leaving you with an aroma of fresh pear. It’s perfect for busy moms, college students or people who hate washing their hair every day – and is available at Pantages.

4. What to experience
There is no secret that showing gratitude is good for you. Life is far from perfect and instead of mentally replaying all of the problems and hiding under the covers, choosing to take control of our minds and focusing on the good, is a valuable investment in yourself. This is a chance to start any day without a heavy heart, appreciating and being in the present moment. What are you grateful for? Really. Right now?

5. Where to Chill
It’s family time, and now that the weather isn’t so dreadful, head on out for a night under the stars. Planets, stars, and galaxies can be viewed through a variety of telescopes on the observation deck. If the Cosmos has piqued your family’s interest, you need to add this outing to your family bucket list. Viewings are open to the public at the Brandon University Astronomical Observatory. Check out their website for a listing of events.
