Shop Local Holiday Gift Guide #shoplocalNB

It’s that time of year again when we have our lists and are checking them twice. We have a wonderful list of gift-giving ideas from local businesses and we hope to help you cross many items off your lists with these ideas. 
We curate this guide to promote shopping local and supporting our communities, province and our region of Canada. This gift guide is sponsored by the businesses taking part, they apply using our call for submissions, we evaluate the application and promote the ones we have either personally shopped with or we believe in supporting them as they get started, like below with Treatlab. If a new to me business applies, I will try to shop from them or review their products before publishing the guide as well.

Give the gift of bling from the sea anytime of year!

I love to get dressed up and wear nice things, including unique and beautiful jewellery. Working from home I do not have the opportunity as often as working outside the hme. So each year I like to pamper myself with a few select pieces of jewellery to wear on special occasions. This December and last December, I was able to wear a custom set made by Salisha at East Coast Sea Gems, you can see pics below of the lovely pieces I wore.

Treasures from NB Beaches – Jewellery by East Coast Sea Gems *Review*

I am an ocean girl at heart. Spending as much time as possible in my younger years near the water. I grew up near a river and close to the Bay of Fundy. One of the things I love to do is beach combing and finding beach glass. Salisha is a beach comber as well, only her finds are inspiration for creating these stunning, one of a kind pieces of jewellery.

Socks with health benefits – *Review*

Socks with health benefits!

*This is a sponsored review. All wording & opinions are my own.

So, I will be honest, as I am with all reviews. I was skeptical…socks that relieve pain, improve balance and athletic performance, really?

For the past 2 months I have had major foot pain. Getting up in the morning was painful or standing after a long time seated made me wince. I tried stretches, foot baths and creams. Taking pain meds helped a bit, but that just masks the pain and it kept returning. So when Ķelsie-Ann asked me to review the Voxxlife products, I was game to try anything!
