Sweet Living Co.

With Christmas time slowly starting to inch closer, we ask the age old question of what to give to whom. We have some amazing products in store and online at Farminista that are perfect for anyone on your Christmas list. Foraging

Something we are super excited about carrying this holiday are our products from Sweet Living Company. The best part about these products is that they are all made in Canada, as well as are all handmade and are all natural!


These products can make perfect gifts and stocking suffers!


The Tinted Lip Balm is made from  raw organic Cocoa & Shea Butters, local Seaberry oil and Beeswax. It leaves a subtle tint of red, giving you a natural flush on the lips. The absolute best part of this lip balm is that its super hydrating and smells like chocolate and peppermint- yum!


The Frankincense Beauty Balm can be used to fade scars, eliminate sun spots and reduce wrinkles.


The Rosehip and Frankincense Elixir firms and brightens your skin while reducing the appearance of dark spots and scars. Restores and protects sun-damaged skin. Not only that, but it hydrates, tones and detoxifies your skin while in the process! This elixir is perfect for all skin types making it an easy gift!






October at Tonic and Farminista

With October slowly starting to fade out, and the transition into November begins (the month that I believe is socially acceptable to start playing Christmas music).

This month at Tonic has been a great one, seeing all the new fall fashions come in and seeing the joy and excitement for the most scenic month of the year makes me want to latch onto this month to ensure it doesn’t simmer away too fast.

I’ve gathered a few of my all-time favorites of this month to show you.


First, I want to talk to you guys about our jacket obsession. If you live anywhere in the prairies, you know jackets are a must.


Make an impression with your last layer!

The Jenny Wool Jacket makes it easy for you to do that.

Check out some of our other jackets!


This is a classic twist on any cardigan, and easily has been our best seller this season. It perfectly fits on any body type, and gives you a bit of extra length in the back so you can wear it with leggings!


Here is a quick link to check it out online:



We wouldn’t be Farminista if we didn’t include any of our head turning dresses. This dress is the definition of fall.



And finally- we are excited to be starting our very own line! Right now, we only have coffee mugs. But, we are working very hard to release more Prairie People goodies! Show off your prairie pride!


V-Day Gift Ideas!

So we all know what time of year it is… Yes it’s winter, and yes winter gets drawn out rather long of all the seasons that we would love to have. BUT! Winter means February, and February means Valentines Day! Now, no, we don’t need a specific day to show our love and affection to the ones we do love and cherish in our lives; However, why not?!


Some people choose to spend this day with either a husband/wife, boy/girl-friend, best friends, or even a widowed grandparent! Just because it’s the ‘Day of Love‘ doesn’t mean you have to have a ‘significant other‘ to share it with. We can have so many different people in our lives who we hold dear to our hearts, and as long as we’re spending the day with someone special to us, the day is made!

Whether your the person to give or receive gifts, that I don’t know. What I do know is that being on either side, especially when it’s for a special someone, is exciting and fun. Trying to pick out the right ‘You’re my Best Friend‘ piece, or ‘I Love You‘ jewelry. Even if it’s a simple ‘I Like You‘, ‘I Care About You‘, or ‘Here’s a Little Something‘! Gifts are so much fun, and we’ve got some great ideas for you. To help you say what you want to say and brighten whoever the special person is in your life for V-Day!

Anyone… Who you love and hold dear to your heart!
