It seems every summer a local breed of Instagrammers migrate to a specific location to begin their ritual of… *cue spooky voice*
taking photos and flooding your timeline...
And this summer, one location was Terre Bleu.
I had heard about this local, family run lavender farm through the magic of Instagram – naturally.
And the more I saw, the more I wanted to go.
Yes, FYI – I do like to venture out to new places besides the usual shopping malls and outlets.
So I was pleasantly surprised when I had received my latest Influenster box that contained lavender sample products and a free entry ticket to Terre Bleu 🤗
Other contents included a mini essential oil roller, full size lip balm, mini lavender cookies and mini dried lavender.
Now I must admit, I was never truly a fan of lavender. I always associated it with soapy bubble baths and pretty much just smelling like an old lady.
So maybe the adult in me is more open minded and appreciative of this scent, because I actually don’t mind it… when it’s ever so slightly infused.
Like lavender cookies? – Bleh! was my initial thought. Though honestly speaking, they actually were my favourite item in the box!
The lip balm was also surprising. I was expecting it to be dry and waxy, but it’s the total opposite. Very moisturizing and also has a hint of mint which leaves this tingle on your lips that I absolutely love. Not everyone is a fan of mint, but that’s my go-to ‘flavour’ for lip balms and chapsticks.
I’m not an essential oil roller kind of person, but I can see why people like it. Very calming and soothing, though I don’t feel the product lasts much. Perhaps because it was a mini sample? Not sure, but for something like this I’d rather go to Saje and pick from a selection of scents that my nose is more attracted to.
And the dried lavender is just cute to add to your drawers. Or, I’d even add it to my beauty display since mine is mini… but my countertops are never clean enough to enjoy it, so in the drawers it is!
Now, Terre Bleu itself isn’t freakishly far from where we live, but it’s definitely more than a 30min drive. So I do appreciate the free entry ticket they sent. Gave bae more of an incentive to agree to my social outing request.
Though, behind the scenes – this didn’t work out the greatest the first time we went!
I wanted to go for my birthday, but by the time we got there and paid, it started pouring!
I didn’t think to check the weather as I figured that Milton wasn’t far enough to have a different forecast than Toronto, but low and behold – Mother Nature decided otherwise.
So attempt number 2 – we made sure to go earlier and confirmed the weather – sunshine ☀️
You definitely need at least 2 hours to enjoy this place. It’s has 2 main sections for the lavender fields. And depending on how busy, the wait for the cute yellow door can take some time.
Plus the gift shop – very small, but if you’re indecisive like me you’ll be in there for a while.
Not to mention, taking a snack break with their lavender infused ice cream and lemonade!.. *whispers* kinda pricey, but worth a taste!
Definitely super delish though.
Would I go again? Yeah probably.
It’s a cute farm, but I’d go on a weekday, first thing in the morning so there’s less people.
And note to self: do not wear an off the shoulder shirt if you’re under the sun for more than 1hr. Worse tan lines ever!
