Happy Family Day, BC!

Falling on the second Monday of February, British Columbians celebrate Family Day, taking extra time to enjoy activities with their loved ones – celebrating family life and the importance of spending time with family.

Throughout the province and across the Lower Mainland, family-friendly events and activities have been organized, many for free. It’s the hope that many families will take this opportunity to discover areas of British Columbia that are new to them, or to rediscover familiar places. The Vancouver Sun lists a range of activities that can be enjoyed by you and your family. A few that have grabbed my attention?

  • The Sea to Sky Gondola . With lift tickets at 50% off, this is a perfect way to enjoy outdoor activities including snow-tubing, and children’s activities plus face-painting and live music.
  • Family Day at Fort Langley. I still recall spending lovely weekends here when our children were younger. Take in the traditions of the families at Fort Langley – from varied backgrounds like Scottish, Hawaiian, First Nations and Metis and enjoy the feature presentation on First Nations resources, make some Scottish bannock, or challenge your skills playing ‘Ulu Maika – a game meant to train Hawaiian warriors.
  • Family Fun on the Farm (Southlands). Which child wouldn’t enjoy spending a day on a working farm, meeting the chickens, goats, sheep, horses, and ponies, including pony rides. Enjoy roast marshmallows on the bonfire.

Family, derived from the Latin, familia, is a group of people affiliated either by by birth, marriage or other relationship) or co-residence. Today, the word “family”, is also used to create more inclusive categories such as close friends, community, nationhood, global village, and humanism.

Whoever you spend Family Day with and however you define ‘family’, Happy Family Day, BC!

Grapefruit Ginger Natural Deodorant Roll-On
Mellisa Herlache (Suamico, US)
Didn’t work for me.

I couldn’t get past the scent of the Grapefruit Ginger deodorant. It’s definitely not detox- I’ve been exclusively using natural deodorant for almost 2 years. However, customer service was amazing. They reached out to me and refunded me my purchase cost. Really wish it would’ve worked for me but worth a try for others, especially since they stand by their satisfaction guarantee.

Dear Mellisa,

We're so sorry to hear that our deodorant doesn't work for you. All Apothekari products come with 100% money-back guarantee. Someone from our customer service team will be in touch to help resolve this issue.

Bespoke Vitamin C 15% Serum
Allison H. (North Vancouver, CA)
Nice glow

I use it every other day and have no sensitivity issues with this product. A lot of other products can give me acne if they're too thick/creamy or they bother my skin if they have a strong perfume scent. The only downside is it can be hard to use up before the expiry date, but I have learned to keep half the bottle in the fridge to make it last a bit longer. I will keep buying this product in the future.

Very satisfied

I was never able to use a retinal cream before. My skin was just too sensitive. This is a really nice product 👍🏻

First healthy deodorant I’ve tried that actually works for me…and no rash. Thank you for developing this awesome product.
