Did this year's winter leave anyone else's skin totally dry and in need of some serious rejuvenation? We at Plum Home + Design are feeling the same way. Lucky for us, there are some amazing local ladies who create the most natural and renewing skin care out there.
Here is what is on our checklist this spring to help us achieve that dewy, healthy skin we all aspire to have:
Good Morning Beautiful by Happy Spritz
Perhaps our newest skincare addition to the Plum family, Happy Spritz's all natural products have become an instant staple in our store. Our particular favourite to get us ready for warmer weather is "Good Morning Beautiful," the facial spray to put all others to shame. Made from citrus and lemon peel, this spray will rejuvenate your senses and get you ready for the day ahead.

Bloom 23 from My Daughter's Fragrance
When My Daughter's Fragrance came out with Bloom 23 last summer, we held a party in its honour. Let us tell you, the celebration around it has not worn off. This light scent is made with vanilla and sandalwood and definitely gives us some warm weather vibes.

Lolita Face Drops from Pura Botanicals
If the luscious scent doesn't get you hooked, the softness of your skin definitely will! Pura Botanical's Lolita Face Drops has been our staple all winter, so it only makes sense to continue the ritual for the spring and bask in the results. Like Lane from Pura says, "In Pure We Trust."
Shop Pura Botanicals here.
Castille Soap from PLANTiful
We love when you can bring home something that you are sure is good quality, good for the environment, and just plain yummy. PLANTiful's soaps check off all of those categories. Amy even takes it one step further by planting seeds in her labels. So once you'e unwrapped your new delicious soap, you can plant the label and grow wildflowers! If that doesn't fit in perfectly with the spring season, we don't know what does.

Regardless of what your springtime skincare ritual is, we hope it leaves you feel fresh and renewed after the harsh winter months!
The reservation is set, you've checked out the wine list online, and now you just have to figure out what to wear on your date with your sweetie this Valentine's Day!
As you know, we are big fans of beautiful jewelry. The right necklace or earrings can take your outfit from hum-drum to stunning in just a matter of seconds. So while you're picking out your outfit for date night, take a look at these stunning pieces for inspiration:
Sometimes the most beautiful creations are thought up right in your own backyard. So Pretty by Cara Cotter hails from Edmonton, and her mini intuition necklace wraps moonstone in carefully crafted 18K gold vermeil, resulting in a necklace that is bright as it is fashionable. Wear this one over a loose dress for a trendy look sure to turn heads!
Nothing turns heads quite like clear crystal, and Loren Hope's small Sarra Cuff is the perfect example of that! Every time a customer comes in after purchasing one, they always remark on the comments they receive from people who happen to catch its sparkle. Wear this one out on the town and be ready for some compliments!
You can almost hear the ocean when you put on one of Leah Alexandra's pieces. Taking inspiration from her coastal home in Vancouver, each ring, earring, and necklace is crafted with care and creativity. Right now, we are obsessed with her labradorite sunny ear jackets. They add an extra bit of depth to your jewelry collection, and we know there are some people out there who automatically love anything made with labradorite!
Have plans that fall a little bit more on the casual side this Valentine's Day? That doesn't mean you can't bring you jewelry A-game! Berg + Bett's tassel necklaces are a staple for a casual-chic outfit. Made from rescued leather from Edmonton's own Poppy Barley, and crafted into a necklace with a brass bullet casing, these necklaces will have you feeling on point all evening.
Whatever you decide to rock this Valentine's Day, we know you'll look fantastic!
Gift her a little sparkle
