It’s time for a TIME OUT at Soul 7

When was the last time you took a time out? We are so busy all the time. There’s always something to do. But when was the last time you left your cell phone at home on purpose, probably never. We are so connected to everything that we forget to take a few minutes a day to ourselves.


Toronto’s first wellness and relaxation centre is now open in Yorkville. A centre which offers various healing and relaxation programs already popular in Europe but only now being introduced in Canada.

Founder, Bob Berman, a former lawyer created Soul 7 whilst searching for alternative healing methods. After suffering a heart attack and the loss of his wife due to cancer, Bob seeked other healing methods not available in Canada. Within his journey he discovered ancient healing methods that are still used today combined with modern technologies that deliver therapeutic  properties.


Programs include: Pain-Free Living (Fibromyalgia, Back Pain, Chronic Pain), Stress-Free Living (Stress/Anxiety), Happy Living (Depression), Healthy Living (Anti-Ageing, Alzheimer’s, Cancer Support), Relaxed Living (Life/Work Stress) and Corporate Wellness Living (Peak Performance, Stress Management, Relaxation).


For my session I sat in the Neuropod (private room)  for a half hour session. It was a most relaxing needed session that left me re-energized. Read in more detail about the different programs offered.

Give yourself a much needed time out!

Live Clean Skincare: Fresh Face


Live Clean has done it again! Affordable eco-friendly skincare packed with non-complicated ingredients. Being a big fan of their Live Clean Baby skincare I was more than happy to try their latest skincare addition, Fresh Face. A few winners and one not so winning product. As with all Live Clean products: paraben, phthalate, and phosphate free. Sulfate-free and DEA free. 98% plant-derived ingredients. And basically a great deal!

My favourite of the two:

Live Clean: Fresh Face refreshing Facial Wipes- Great for travel especially since I am back to working as a flight attendant. These are perfect for on-the-go, at work or after the gym. Or even to have at home as a pre-cleanse. Love the refreshing scent! Alcohol-free and oil-free. Added ingredients: their trademark Orchid-C Complex, Vitamin C, lavender, Cucumber, chamomile, milk thistle, mallow, aloe and buckthorn. 30 wipes $9.99

Live Clean: Fresh Face Hydrating Creamy Cleanser- a non-drying creamy cleanser. Love that my skin doesn’t feel tight or dry after using this. For stubborn eye makeup I needed a seperate makeup remover. Otherwise, great at washing off the rest of my made-up face. Nice light scent and non-foaming. Slight suds. Contains: kaolin clay, vitamin C, orchid flower, lavender, cucumber, chamomile, milk thistle, aloe, and jasmine. 175ml $ 14.99

The least favourite item:

Live Clean: Fresh face 24 Hour Hydrating Day Cream- for me this day cream just didn’t “sit” well on my combination skintype. I found that although it was creamy it didn’t moisturize enough but in part because I found my skin didn’t absorb it. Contains: orchid extract, vitamin C, lavender, cucumber, milk thistle, mallow, aloe and buckthorn. 150ml $19.99
