Help Your Hands This Winter

As the cold weather continues in Ontario us girls rely on O’Keeffe’s Working Hands Hand Cream. We have tried many creams over the years and this product does wonders!

If you are looking to really moisturize then try putting the cream on your hands before you go to bed and wear a pair of gloves such as these purple ones by Quo for extra effectiveness! They also make a cream for your feet.

The product can be found at any Canadian Tire. Trust us, it is worth the trip! The gloves can be found at Shopper’s Drug Mart.

Looking To Buy Or Sell An iPhone? Try Orchard

6

The idea is simple and the process is even easier! Orchard finally makes selling or buying an iPhone easy. When the iPhone 6 hit the market us Girls upgraded our phones and did not want to deal with the hassle of trying to sell our phones so we thought “Let’s use Orchard”.

Here is how selling works:

You start by downloading the application on your iPhone and run the program.

Step 1 & 2:

Orchard iOS 7 WHITE (5).028

Step 3, 4 & 5:

Orchard iOS 7 WHITE (5).031

Orchard iOS 7 WHITE (5).067

After testing the iPhone you will find out the approximate value.

Orchard iOS 7 WHITE (5).071

Once you have gone through these steps which takes less than 5 minutes Orchard will send you a package in the mail for your iPhone. All that is required is to send your used iPhone to their office and you will receive an email notification that they have your phone and will be sending your payment to you. It typically takes 24-48 hours to process the e-Transfer, which is sent to the email address you provide.

We asked Alex Sebastian one of the Co-Founders of Orchard about his business. This is what he had to say “Creating Orchard was always about enabling people to buy and sell used technology. It sounds simple, but the other options available are often a nightmare to use. Who wants to haggle with someone at a mutually-inconvenient subway station just to sell your phone? Buyers can be pretty difficult to deal with when they have no real way of knowing if what they’re buying actually works or isn’t stolen, and who can blame them? That’s why Orchard steps in to facilitate all aspects of the sale. As a seller, you deal with us, and we deal with everything else.”

If you are looking to purchase an iPhone for yourself, a parent, a child or to use while travelling abroad this is a great platform to look at.

We highly recommend this company!

Winter Activities in Southern Ontario

Make the most of our winter by getting outside and being active. Here are some of our favourite activities!

1. Snowshoeing

Image-1

Snowshoeing is a great way to get some fresh air without too much exertion. Our top recommendation is Scenic Caves Nature Adventures located at the top of Blue Mountain in Collingwood. They have a great suspension bridge that you can snowshoe across. The facility also offers great cross-country skiing trails.

2. Cross-Country Skiing
Hilton Falls offers 16km of trails just a short drive outside of the city. The trails are suitable for all levels and they offer half day and full day rentals. For more information visit Conservation Halton. Note that they have not been open this season due to minimal snowfall so make sure you call them before you arrive to avoid disappointment!

If you are willing to drive slightly further and north of the city then Horseshoe Resort which offers 40km of groomed tracks is our top pick! Since they are north of Barrie they have had great snowfall this season. If you are an experienced cross-country skier then make sure to do the Achey Breaky trail!

3. Skating at Arrowhead Park
The Ice Trail at Arrowhead Park offers 1.3km of incredible skating. This is a great activity for all ages and makes a great winter memory!

Langdon Hall is a Relais & Châteaux property located in southern Ontario dating back to 1898. Less than a two-hour drive from the GTA, Langdon Hall is the ULTIMATE overnight or weekend getaway.

The hotel provides a wide range of activities depending on the time of year. Some of our favourites are snowshoeing on their trails, a game of croquet, sitting by the fire pit year round or relaxing at the pool in the summer.

The cuisine at Langdon Hall is exceptional. Afternoon tea is offered Friday’s, Saturday’s and Sunday’s. If you are looking for a day trip brunch at Langdon Hall is a great idea.
