The holidays are a great time to support local and independent businesses.  Like big businesses, they make most of their money at the holidays too.  There are holiday markets, orders for Christmas gifts and more.  The upcoming Craftadian show in Hamilton is the perfect time to get that gifting shopping list done while buying local, keeping your dollars in your community.  One of the recent independent businesses I tried out is The Northern Goddess, who will be at the upcoming[Read more]

Topbox Unilever Classic Box

Topbox Unilever Classic Box - All Products

Last week, I shared the Unilever Trends box from Topbox and mentioned that I also bought the Unilever Classic box.  Like the Trends box, it included a full size deodorant along with Vaseline Lip Therapy plus several travel sized products.  I actually found this box a bit more useful than the Trends box size as I like Nexxus Therappe/Humectress so it is great to have a travel size for the holidays. Topbox Unilever Classic Box – Degree and Vaseline Like the[Read more]
