we ARE amused...

Happy Victoria Day!

the beautiful young Queen Victoria

birthday greetings...from one Victoria to another!
I'm proud to share my name with such an iconic Royal Lady, Queen Victoria ~ and what better place to celebrate Victoria Day, than in my hometown of Cobourg, Ontario's Feel Good town 

which boasts the stunning Victoria Beach...

...Victoria Park, abloom with Spring colours,

and this historic leading lady...

Victoria Hall ~ this beautiful grand landmark celebrates it's 150th anniversary this year with a fabulous Grand Ball in it's majestic Concert Hall, in honour of the Grand Ball with which Albert  (Prince of Wales) opened the Hall back in 1860. Find out more on the brilliant Oh, Canada! blog.

Victoria Hall is also the 'feel good' inspiration behind my
deliciously dark & minty handmade soap

"This historic leading lady captures the classic combination of rich dark chocolate and cool, crisp peppermint aromas.

Featuring fairtrade organic cocoa and peppermint essential oil.
A right royal performance...encore!"

Mmmm, I don't know about you, but I might have to celebrate with some heavenly mint chocolate!

Happy Vicky Day indeed


  1. Happy Victoria Day to you too!
    Cobourg looks like a lovely place, Victoria Hall is an amazing structure!
    I swear if I didn't know you made soap I'd be thinking that was fudge. It looks and sounds delicious!

  2. Coburg is so beautiful! Next time I'm heading down the 401 I think I'll pull off and take a little tour. Happy Victoria Day to you too :)
