Feel The Burn, The Wind Burn

Good morning!

IMG_8877

This morning was a whirlwind in the bakery today! The mornings are always a bit crazy because I am rushing to get my orders out for the mail pick-up.

For one of my orders this morning, I was working on a custom BABY SHOWER order. I love doing these!

IMG_8858

I made up this custom label with a stork on it and my customer also came up with the name- the baby boy’s name is Henry so she thought O Henry would be cute.

IMG_8859

So fun.

IMG_8865

We did 4 different flavours in mini sized Glo Bars.

IMG_8873

and then I packaged them all up!

IMG_8874

I can’t wait to hear how the ladies like them.

This summer I am also doing up Glo Bars for wedding favours– that will be fun too. I love the idea of giving Glo Bars as party favours…I think they are a unique item to give as a thank-you.

Speaking of mail, I also had a fun delivery this morning. My running books arrived! I was the winning bidder on Brooke’s Cool Running Gift Pack in Shop 4 A Cause 2.

IMG_8868

The books I won are the following:

1) Complete Book of Beginning Running: Only in Runner’s World Complete Book of Beginning Running will you find everything you need to become a happy, healthy fitness runner including: how to stay motivated, what shoes to buy, what to eat before you run and after, how to prevent common injuries and much, much more! 2) Hal Higdon’s Smart Running: Expert advice on training, motivation, injury prevention, nutrition and good health. 3) How to Train for and Run Your Best Marathon: Tips for first timers on workouts and pacing, advice for experienced participants on setting a goal and achieving a personal best, information for all runners on cross training, nutrition, equipment and injury prevention.

I’m excited to read them. I was glancing through the Runner’s World book (right) and it has a recommended food as DARK CHOCOLATE. I think I am going to like this book. :lol:

And because Brooke is such a sweetie, she sent me some fun TARGET plates, a bowl, and a cup!

The Crazy Dish Lady lives on… :devil: Thanks Brooke!

Breakfast this morning was Banana Soft Serve Vegan Overnight Oats!

IMG_8838

I made it with Chocolate Banana Soft Serve using 2 tbsp of cocoa powder processed into the frozen banana.

IMG_8841

Fun mix-ins included Nature’s Path Rice Crisp and Cacao Nibs!

Feel The Burn

Want to know something weird that happened as a result of the try-a-tri race? I got wind burn on my face!

When we got home from the race, I noticed that my face was quite red and at first I thought that was due to exerting myself in the race or being cold. Well, a day passed and my face was still red, so I am pretty sure that I got wind burn when on the bike.

Wind burn is defined as, ‘redness and irritation of the skin caused by exposure to high-velocity wind.’ I guess I was just going too fast for my own good?! :tongue: hah..I joke, I joke. It doesn’t really surprise me that I would get wind burn because my skin flushes VERY easily and it is very sensitive.  It has been that way since I have been a child and has caused me a lot of grief in public situations! :blush: I blush at the thought of blushing. I blush if someone else blushes. I blush if I feel like I am put on the spot or I am anxious. It is annoying at times. Rosacea runs in my family though so it is not too surprising I guess.

Do you have sensitive skin or do you flush easily?

~~~

Well, I have more orders to bake and then I need to do a bunch of work on the upcoming Farmer’s Market! I haven’t had a chance to make my signs yet and I am a bit worried because I have no idea what to do for them. The director told me that anything HOMEMADE for signs at a market is good, so I guess I will have to find some time to make some signs.

I have a very delicious chick pea recipe coming up that will blow your mind. It is another ‘life changer’ if you know what I mean.

Have a great Tuesday!

Very cute O Henry bars! What a sweet idea :) I love the idea of wedding favors too! I feel like it would be difficult to find an occasion where a globar wouldn’t be welcome ;)

I’m so sorry for the windburn D: that sounds really uncomfortable! At the same time though, it’s almost a cool thing to be able to say ;D you’re a legend: “Oh, Angela? Yeah she biked so hard she gave herself WINDBURN, man. Hardcore.” hahaha. I know that Aveda makes an awesome face cream that you can use before you apply makeup/just to hydrate. It’d probably do you good <3

Your breakfasts, as always, are absolutely drool-inducing. I'm dying for lunch at work just looking at it. I'm really looking forward to that chick pea recipe!!

I have extremely sensitive skin! Bright red, splotchy, you name it. Usually has to do with my body temperature. I love the mini Glo Bars and I’m also excited to hear reviews on those books!

Oh no wind burn is so annoying! When I was working at the British F1 last year it was so cold and windy that I didn’t notice that the sun was out and after 3 days I got massive wind burn. What’s worse, I was wearing my glasses so had a very unattractive glasses tan line! I would love to get Glo Bars at a wedding, it’s a great idea. Plus Homemade is a great sign for a Farmers market – it will lure loads of people in. Did you have to apply for a table / stand at the Farmer’s market?

Reply

8 Angela (Oh She Glows) June 8, 2010

Yup, it was a big application process and they have very strict guidelines for acceptance, esp. because this is an organic market. They also inspect the kitchen and look at your receipts for proof of organic ingredients. I just need to figure out how I will set everything up! That part is a bit stressful because I have never done it before. We had to buy a canopy tent and we need to pick up a 6 ft table too.

I love the mini-glo bar idea…I’m not sure if you saw my comment a while back but I can’t eat nuts so if you ever sell a nut-free bar I will surely be your best customer.

I have sensitive skin but I don’t think I’ve ever had wind burn! Sounds quite painful!

11 Nancy June 8, 2010

I’m pretty much the exact same when it comes to blushing. Thankfully you didn’t see me once you passed by me on your run at the try-a-tri. I blushed as soon as I was done yelling out to you! HAHA!

I blush when others blush and I have a bit of rosey cheeks naturally (I try to cover that up though), we’ll be blushing all night long if we hang ever out, haha!

Not gonna lie, when/if I’m having a baby shower, I’m prob gonna remember this and place an order (that is, if you’re still baking by that time)!

I have really sensitive skin – it’s always been dry and I break out very easily. It’s such a hassle to find cleansers I can use.

17 Amanda June 8, 2010

Those Globars are the best idea ever!! I think I may have some of the most sensitive skin out there :( besides just bad skin – acne, big pores – I blush easily, I flush easy when I exert myself. Like you said can leave you in quite embarrassing situations at times! Ive been battling my bad skin for years – thought if I could at least get it cleared up I would only have one bad feature to deal with but have not had much luck.
On another note – I am healing a bad ankle injury i suffered on a run last week and have been so enjoying all of your try-a-tri recaps!! You are truly an inspiration! You both did a great job :)

The mini-bars are SO CUTE! I love that you’re doing orders for baby showers and weddings. I think that Glo Bars would be the perfect party favour ;)

I don’t have sensitive skin, and I’ve never heard of wind burn! It sounds painful, though. I hope it gets better soon :(

All my life I’ve suffered from eczema. It’s made the rounds of my body, all completely results of stress. It’s a major pain in the butt!

Sunday I was suffering from some mild mild wind burn on my shins. I wore capris pants on my run, as I hate when the bottoms of my pants get wet from running in the rain. I they were pretty red, and itchy. My husband threatened to put oven mits over my hands and duct tape them like what happened to Callie on Grey’s lol.

O . . . M . . . G . . . I cannot tell you how HARD I laughed at the devil emoticon after “crazy dish lady lives on”

I flush soooo easily. In fact if I get uncomfortable in any way I start getting hives on my chest. I used to get them on first dates, luckily I don’t have to go on dates anymore. Sometimes at work if I’m having a suuuuuper intense conversation with someone (which can be often since I’m a manager) the hives start creeping up my neck. If I could, I’d wear turtlenecks every day of my life!

LOVE the idea of Glo bars as party favours! *stores in memory bank*

I don’t have sensitive skin but I do blush very easily! Fair skin + red hair = blushes a LOT!

Oh! And I got The Complete Book of Running for Christmas, it’s not too bad and includes some great safety tips for women runners.

Good luck preparing for the farmer’s market. Reading about your business endeavours reminds me a lot of what I have done over the past 5 yrs. (I recently sold my food business). In regards to the farmer’s market, just do your best for your first outting, you can always revise and improve after you see what is out there!

As for sensitive skin…yes I do! Last night I could feel my cheeks getting redder/hotter when I was the center of attention at a group dinner (ugh!). Alcohol really effects it too (making my face redder), so I indulge in moderation!

O Henry Glo Bars! That is such a cute name. And I’m certain the ladies will love em’ :) I have pretty sensitive skin in terms of dryness and facial products, but I also tend to breakout at times. I find using natural products without harsh chemicals minimizes this problem though.

Looking forward to the chickpea recipe!

That’s an awesome baby shower or wedding shower gift! I have super sensitive skin and even some chemicals or fragrance in skin care products can set it off. Organic, fragrance-free stuff works best for me.

The glo bar favors are SUCH a cute idea! My skin is olive and sooo far from being sensitive. I’m sorry that happened to you, but I think it just makes you sound more hardcore!

35 jen June 8, 2010

Ack! My skin is so sensitive. I also blush at the slightest thing! I hate it, and it gives me away, and I hate it even more when people point out to me that I am blushing (duh!) and then I blush even more. Also, I have Rosacea, and other than staying on antibiotics on and off for all time, my dermatologist doesn’t have any other suggestions for controlling it. I tried a homeopathic gel found in drug stores, but it made my skin dry out and itch and redder than usual within three days. I give up!

Hey Angela! I’m a newbie to your blog and I find it really amazing that you live so close to me! I think everyone else’s blogs I read are from the states, so having an Ontario-centric voice in the mix is wonderful :) I was wondering which Farmer’s Market you are going to be at and when it will start? I live in Grimsby and I have been looking for a good organic market in the region for a while!

Also, I am regular triathlete and I love that you tried your first event! I bet you have the tri bug now right? So when’s the next one? ;)

I turn so red when I run. EXTREMELY red. To the point where people ask me if I am OK and tell me to “slow down”. It’s so frustrating!

Super cute Glo Bars! My obsessed brain (any excuse to imagine having kids AND planning a party menu+ take-home gifts) is now over-excited. Ha.
I have to admit – the signs at a Farmer’s Market DO draw me in – especially if they are well-written and a little funny – but that’s just me. I’m sure there are others who just want quick and snappy.
I’ve stopped to stare at that exact Target plate several times…. I’m still resisting. Someday I’ll have an excuse to buy lots of gorgeous dishware…. and the money for it :-D But I’m really hoping to buy “real” dishes because I’m trying to cut down on plastic, and that’s the main thing empowering me to resist buying the cute dishes at Target.
I am addicted to chickpeas, so you have me waiting on the edge of my seat!

I really appreciate that you admit to self doubts etc, because hey, who doesnt??! I am having a horrific day at work dealing with a horrible co worker and just read over your whole experience. I was in tears this morning but after reading your whole story I know I can carry on. I am leaving in a month and a half and know I can find the strength to be the bigger person. aah, ok i am getting all cheesy but just THANK YOU! keep on keepin on!

You wouldn’t know you suffer from redness, your skin looks so pretty!

I blush all the time! It can be really annoying, especially at work when I’m flustered and I blush. Like my face is holding up a sign saying “Kate is out of her element right now!” I’m also having a hard time with going to the gym before work. I like to workout pretty hard, and my face will stay red until an hour or two after I have been sitting at the desk. I wonder what my coworkers are thinking with my flushed face?

Ugh! I blush so easily and I hate it!! My face and the top of my chest gets splotchy. I can be feeling really confident in a situation, but slightly nervous or just a little uncomfortable and here comes the splotchies. Sometimes I do not even notice it, until someone else points it out and they think I am embarrassed. When really, it usually has nothing to do with embarrassment at all.

Love the mini glo bars as shower gifts by the way !

I am such a blusher- I was born blushing, hence my middle name, Rose. I hate it when I do any sort of exercise, my whole face goes dark red, I always look like I’m completely puffed even when I’m ok! My skin gets really warm very quickly like that, but cools very rapidly too, I have Raynaud’s, where my extremities go purple then white. And I have permanent dark eye circles, they’re genetic (my little 11 year old brother even has them).

I’m sorry to hear about your windburn. My skin is so sensitive it’s embarrassing. If I clean out my fish tank and miss a spot on my arms where the water hit, I’ll get a rash. If I’m outside in the sun and sweating, I’ll get a rash. It’s just not very fun :(

We’re blushing twins.
I get on stage, I blush.
I’m put on the spot, I get flushed.
I exercise, I get splotchy.

Do you have any makeup tips to cover it up?

It may not look like it in my photographs but I really do have red cheeks!
It has gotten to the point where I flee from presentations in class because I get so overwhelmed by it. I’m a psychology major and can assume I’ll be put on the spot and need to speak to a lot of people in the future. Ah! It kills me :/ haha

Rosacea in my family and I am a blusher too. To combat flushing, I take 2 Benadryl tabs daily every morning and it reduces the histamine reaction in my face from exercise induced flushing.

My doctor suggested it to me. Works like a charm. Wish I knew about it in high school where I blushed ALOT!

I just bought those same dishes/bowl from Target! I heart them….It’s funny how becoming a blogger has made me become a crazy dish lady too. Gone are the days when I could stroll by kitchen stores without a second glance. Nowadays, I’m obsessively on the lookout for sales on dishes. My pantry is now stocked with all these beautiful, fun dishes that don’t stack on top of each other at all. I’m glad we can all be crazy dish ladies together. :)

My skin is quite fair, so I get windburn ALL the time. The worst is when I go skiing! I’m a speed demon, and I love the feeling of flying down the mountain. Too bad my face looks like a tomato for the next 24 hrs afterward. I’ve learned to embrace it. I’ve dubbed it my “mountain look”. :)

I have always been a blusher and hated it. My mom said I would eventually out grow it. Nope!! I’m now 55 and still get red when I exercise, eat spicy food, drink wine or if attention is on me. I have been using skincare for sensitive skin by Evan Healy for nearly a year and it has really helped.
Love the recipes. I’ve been passing them on to my son and future daughter-in-law.

It’s so reassuring to read about someone else that blushes as much as I do! I’ve always hated it but I guess I need to remind myself it’s normal! I really enjoy reading your blog; thanks for all the great recipes and inspiring exercise and healthy-eating posts.

Too cute, I love that type of gift pack. I have that exact square bowl from Target. I love the shape of it, hubby not so much. He says it’s odd eating out of a square bowl…LOL! I’m shipping my items out to Debbie & Jami this weekend. I’ve had a hard time figuring out how to ship the crystals w/o them breaking while being shipped…eeek! I finally have them packaged up with plenty of tissue and bubble wrap, so crossing my fingers they will ship to Debbie all in one piece.

I love those tiny glo-bars, too cute and what a great prize to receive at a party!

I did a triathlon about 4 years ago, in January, it was a backwards tri, and it was 29 degrees that day….holy cow, having the swim as the last part of the race was nice because I literally felt like I thawed out. It was an indoor pool, so it was heated and wow, what a great feeling. Anywho, that evening my hubby noticed that my face was burned…I was like how’d that happen, it was freezing cold. Well, cycling an average of 14-15 mph in cold wind, I burned my face. I literally peeled like a sunburn. Eeek!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE the chickpeas with pnut butter and maple surple! I added some cinnamon to it today ( I made a double batch last night so I would have some for a snack mid-afternoon) and it was DELISH! Thank you!

And congrats on your Tri! You are amazing!!!
