For quite some time now, I've been expressing my desire to have an in-loft herb garden, and while out shopping a few weeks back, I happened upon mini herb kits that came inside of mason jars. I had a couple left over from when I started storing herbs for the 303 Face | Body SubtleTEAS herbal tea line, and yesterday morning, (a day after National Gardening Day) I was finally able to plant the seeds.
A few weeks back, I'd gone over to our local gardening store here in the heart of the city, Urban Roots, to check on what sort of seed packets that were available. I decided on Marigold Signet (Lemon/Tangerine Gems), Basil (Sweet Thai), Lavender (English), and English Thyme.
There are so many things I love about our loft, and one of those is the wonderfully tall windows. Although I oftentimes miss having a balcony, I love the amount of light that we get in the loft, rain or shine.. and hope that it will be perfect in helping these awesome little herb...
I cannot even express how stoked I was about learning that Union Station was going to have a Farmers Market this summer. Don't judge, we all have our 'happy place!' :)
Anywho, I wanted to get there before festivities officially kicked off to get photos and video footage, as well as check out the goods! I wanted to purchase everything I saw, but fortunately was able to stay in control, making it out of there with spearmint, peonies, jam, and my life:)
I look forward to attending each Saturday that it is around. Below you'll see a bit of what was there as I took in the market.

Limes are an excellent way to add a refreshing zest to so many items.. and lime for skin and hair is just as wonderful.
Rich in antioxidants and flavonoids, lime works exceptionally well in lightening dark spots, cooling and calming skin after a day in extreme sunlight, preventing acne breakouts, as well as possessing anti-aging benefits.
Natural, good-to-your-skin ingredients are what the focus is at 303 Face | Body. The Revitalizing Lime Repair Moisturizer by 303 couples the pore tightening, acne reducer of lime, as well as the vitamin D enriched skin softener of hemp for a moisturizer that will have your skin literally thanking you. Apply to clean, towel dried skin and feel the gentle cooling product at work.
Lime also works wonderfully on your scalp, reducing dandruff, yes dandruff! 303 Face | Body Revitalizing Lime Dry Shampoo sets your scalp free with this gem.
