What can I say babies require ALOT of stuff! I’ve been using this weekender overnight bag from Poppy & Peonies for myself and the kids. I love the tassel details! It’s the perfect size to accommodate their needs and mine.
I’m a complete lipstick addict, so of course when my friends at MAC Cosmetics sent me the legendary Best Lip MAC has to offer I was beyond excited to get my lips on! Ombre, gloss, matte and stains this is an amazing box of makeup wonders. Here are my fav shades so far this summer:
A few things have changed in our master bedroom for summer. I’ve gotten quite a few sourcing questions so I thought I would link up the room in one spot. Welcome to our light and airy summer master bedroom design with The Brick.
TATCHA as you know has made almost every favourite beauty product list I’ve made for the past 4 years. If you are not familiar with them, their products are carried online directly through TATCHA, Sephora, Barneys New York, Spring online and goop. I love their classical approach to skincare encompassing Japanese beauty secrets passed down by generations with a less is more theme. You know what goes into the products thus you know exactly what you are putting onto your skin and into your body. If you haven’t discovered this brand I would definitely give them a try. Here are my current TATCHA go to products that will suite anyone’s beauty routine:
One Step Cleansing Oil ℅ : I love using this residue free all in one cleaners with my Clarisonic brush at night. It completely removes all my makeup gently with no irradiation on my sensitive skin. It is one of their Best Sellers for a reason, the luxurious formula smells and feels like heaven plus it works!
Classic Rice Enzyme Power ℅ : Speaking of cleansing, this exfoliating polish is perfect for my sensitive skin. It gentle removes my dead layer of skin, revealing a soft glowing complexion. It’s easily my fav bi-weekly skincare treat.
This summer we partnered with The Brick to transform our little outdoor space into a backyard entertaining oasis. Since we revealed all our hard work, you have asked so many questions! Thank you for that! No really! I appreciate all the emails and direct messages, those kinds of conversations are my favourite part about blogging. A few themes started to arise from your messages… many of the questions were the same, so I thought I would do a follow up Q&A patio style!
Let’s Talk Lounge Furniture:
Some of the most asked questions were about our lounging set… What is it made of? Is it durable? Will it hold up to weather, toddlers and that giant dog? Will the color fade? Do you have to conditioning or paint it? Good Luck keeping it looking that way… I guess that wasn’t a question. But you get the point.
We went with The Park Terrace patio set because it’s made of durable UV resistant resin or all weather wicker. We wanted something that will last over the years with zero upkeep compared to real wicker or wood options.
I was very torn because it does come in a brown/natural colour option but I loved the sleek black for our design theme. It’s completely wipeable, which for us with two babies and a dog is a blessing. So far I’ve been lucky spot treating the fabric quickly after a spill or two.
Let’s Talk Accessories:
Where did you find your accessories? Are those outdoor items? Are they kid friendly?
Almost every accessory you see is from The Brick. Most were in-store purchases, every location is different and has a variety of in-store purchases not listed online. So I’m sorry I couldn’t link those up for you but you should go to your local location to take a look. You never know what you could find.
All the lighting is outdoor solar panelled, the dishes and cups are plastic making them kid friendly. Those items I found at Canadian Tire.
Where did you find that fireplace? How heavy is it? Does it run on a gas line? Does it give off heat for guests? How often do you use it?
Within 1 day of posting our patio transformation I had over 15 DM’s on Insta Stories asking where I found this modern fire table… of course THE BRICK!!! It’s super lightweight, even I can move it if I need to. We keep it in it’s cover between uses. We have it hooked up to a propane tank and use it at least 2 evenings a week. And we haven’t filled that propane tank yet this summer. It gives off heat, but not a crazy amount, I would compare it to an outdoor heater on low. Perfect for when the sun goes down and the air cools off. It will take us well into fall for outdoor entertaining!
