Did you that in the 1970s, pet rocks were a popular collectable toy!? They were marketed like live pets and even came in their own box with holes.
Today we are bringing you an easy tutorial on how to paint a rock and turn it into anything you want! You can use this tutorial to inspire your own ideas, and you could even make your own pet rock! Or you could paint some rocks for decor around your house and garden.
Today's tutorial is brought to you by @molrocks on Instagram. She donates a portion of all her proceeds to homeless charities in the area, so that they can get the help they need during these uncertain times.

Welcome to Wellness Wednesday!
Today Midtown Yoga Kitchener Waterloo, a beloved Belmont Village business, introduces you to their studio and some of the services they offer!
Midtown Yoga offers many different types of yoga classes for people of all skill sets! You can attend their lessons no matter where you are in your yoga journey.
Due to the pandemic, they had to change how they teach their lessons. They started virtual yoga lessons & created an online subscription service that provides you with many lessons you can do at your own leisure!
Now that things have started opening up again, they have started giving smaller in-person lessons while following many safety precautions.
In two weeks, on September 2nd, we will be featuring a 45 minute yoga lesson for our followers! It will be completely free and available on our social media accounts & website! Keep a lookout for that video!

Happy Free For All Friday!
Today we bring you a super easy tie-dye tutorial! If you have any white clothing lying around the house this video is for you!
We want to first thank one of our sponsors for Bestival 2020, Tim Hortons. Without their support we wouldn't be able to celebrate a virtual Bestival event coming this September.
In the 1970s, the tie-dye trend continued from the previous decade. "Hippie" fashion continued to be popular in the 1970s, but it evolved with the new trends of the decade.
This tutorial is super easy and doesn't take much time! The most time-consuming part is the waiting for it to absorb the dye.
We hope you are able to make your own tie-dye with this easy tutorial! Happy Friday!
