Beauty || My Monthly @RockyMtnSoap Product Picks || Polish, Restore & Brighten #AD

I’m so excited to share three 100% natural beauty products that will polish, restore and brighten your skin. I find as I transition into winter my skin needs some extra help. It can get dry in patches and dull in appearance overall. Come November I start using a facial polish to exfoliate that dry dull skin. A weekly treatment to target my challenge areas on my face. And an intensive serum to restore the skin’s surface. Here are my top picks from Rocky Mountain Soap Co. to get you winter ready:

The Bamboo Brightening Face Polish: This toxin-FREE polish uses Bamboo and Sugar to give an invigorating scrub for normal and oily skin types. I love that it has a natural exfoliate, none of those nasty micro beads here. It contains Tea Tree Oil to help with my acne prone areas. It’s a must try if you are looking for a deep scrub.

Restorative Face Mask: For a weekly intensive treatment I turn to this Spirulina and Ginseng face mask to help soften my skin and reduces the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.

Restorative Face Serum: To target dry spots and get an overall radiant complexion I love this intensive facial serum. Antioxidant-rich Pomegranate oil protects dry and mature skin against the elements, reducing the appearance of aging to reveal your youthful glow. This serum does double duty for me, I love to apply it to the tops of my hands at night to transform that dry skin over night.

Home Decor || Have You Seen Our New Dining Place? || Featuring The Bari Set by @TheBrick #AD

With one of the most anticipated sales of the year starting tomorrow, I wanted to share with you our finished dining space. Maybe give you a few items you may want to check up on in the massive Black Friday sale this weekend at The Brick.  I don’t know exactly what items will be discounted but their sale is legendary… It’s definitely one to check if you are looking to pick up furniture at a fraction of the price.

I fell in love with this Bari dining set and worked the design of the space around it’s modern aesthetic. The leather on the chairs is wipeable, which is perfect for our family needs. And this Jade server has almost the exact wood colour and finish. I love the table with this functional and trendy server but if we did not have that window to the right I would have loved this matching Bari bookcase.

With the holidays fast approaching I accessorized our set with neutral items like tropical leaf place settings, gold cutlery and these honeycomb candle holders I found in store from The Brick. I love these geometric wall scones too, also found instore from The Brick. They really complete the room.  Continue reading

ADADE27A-052B-4423-8CC4-DFD956D11A39

Life has been a bit stressful lately, the daily hustle with the kids can feel a little overwhelming to say the least. Plus, I know entering into the holiday season our days will only get busier! It is so important to sustain a healthy lifestyle everyday. Taking mental breaks, nourishing your body with healthy food and incorporating natural skincare. These are the simple things within my control these days, so you know I’m trying my best to stay on top of my healthy daily routines. That’s why I like using eos Organic lip balms, their new formula contains all natural moisturizers including 4 natural oils , and 1 natural butter. These cute tiny lip balm spheres easily fit into my purse kid’s school drop offs, daily stroller walks in the river valley, and my daily blog meetings. Best part? The eos Organic lip balms have always been 100% natural and certified Organic by USDA and Ecocert. They have always fit into my healthy lifestyle and now with flavours like: Strawberry Sorbet, Sweet Mint, Pomegranate Raspberry and Summer Fruit i have so many to choose from to suit my scent craving that day. Again, These flavors are 100% natural, certified Organic and made out of natural fruit extracts, what’s not to love? Have you had your #eosmoment today?

Home Decor || How to Style Sidetables 2 Ways || With @TheBrick #AD

Ever since our master bedroom reveal with this amazing The Berlin bed, so many of you have asked how we style our side tables. Honestly, I love to style side tables for bedrooms and end tables for living rooms simply because there are so many options. It’s the kind of design element you can change often, work in seasonal pieces and really have fun. See our International Lux Accent Table from The Brick styled two ways below.

The first way I like to style an side table is what I called the “Symmetric” Approach. Find a larger functional item like a lamp or a fan. Like this Tyler Lamp from The Brick in the centre of the side table. Depending how much much surface area you have add style items centrally to the table. I like stacks of books, candles, and cute smaller alarm clocks.

The next style approach is basically the opposite, it’s an Asymmetric Approach to placing your items. Simply pick one side of the table for your larger dominant item like this lamp and stack styled accents from there. I love this large glass jar I found in store at The Brick. I use them throughout the house to add a pop of shiny colour.
