It has been such a busy season, maybe because Autumn is my all time favourite. I always try to jam pack it full with everything Fall has to offer. Lately on Instagram I’ve had so many questions on my stories about the day-to-day lifestyle choices we’ve been loving. From shopping to the spa… you’ve been asking!  I’m going to try my best to start sharing my picks from routines that stood out to our family.

Here’s my September Love It List:

Hansen Pumpkin Spice Liquor: (Local Edmonton Love) This on ice is definitely Fall in a cup. If you haven’t tried it they’ve restocked for the season but it is a limited edition item that goes fast! Fill up your cup and support this amazing local distillery.

Cloud 9 Pajamas: (Local and Canada wide online)  I’ve paid several visits already to my favourite cozy essentials store. The name says it all, it’s a must stop shop for heavenly sleep and lounge wear. With the holidays around the corner and the cool crisp weather… everyone needs come cozy in their life.

H&M Kids at Kingsway Garden Mall: Scored the kids head to toe looks for Fall including that adorable bunny sweater.

Pura: (Local and Canada wide online): their new flagship on 124st is the ultimate experience of luxurious beauty. From the design of the space itself, to the testing wall of all my Pura favorites. Just to name a few the ENTIRE mask section and the baby massage oil are some of my favourites to note.

Soft Moc: Until October 15th score 15% off your entire online ordering… including sake items! I scored Hunter boots for the family. couponkira15off

Lipstick Empire: custom peel protoco, this season treat your skin to exactly what YOUR skin needs. They work with your skin type and goals to customize the perfect peel routine for the fall. And did I mention it smells like a Pumpkin Spice Latte! See their site for more details.

Funky Petals: everyone needs an amazing florist in their life! They create this custom arrangement from 2 Pinterest photos I found… completely creating my vision. They also have tons of prearranges flowers instore you can take home.

Dallas Curow: although I have a lot of photos taken of our family, it’s usually for a ad campaign for a brand. I rarely have photos of all of us or sans ad imagery. Luckily Dallas is offering at home family sessions. It was amazing to have her some and rage photos in our natural habitat. REAL photos. We racked leaves, played with toys inside and let the kids take a bubble bath. And she captured it all. I highly recommend this type of session, you will get so many gems in there that are memories worth printing or putting on a holiday card.

 

Style || All The Fall Feels

8590F506-BD73-4A14-A975-A815C3A5E576I live for Fall fashion. It is by far my favourite style season for more ways than one. I’m so excited to partner with SoftMoc styling these moccasin flats. They are furry on the inside, perfect for keeping me warm for school pick up and drop off but so stylish too. I love the bow detail on the toe. With 125 stores across Canada you gotta visit to see all their Fall offerings this year. They carry brands like Ugg, Sperry, Converse, VANS, Blundstone, Sketchers, Dr. Martens, my fav Hunter and so much more! I know you’ll find the perfect pair to help you stylishly crunch through those lovely Fall leaves.

Canadian Blogger’s Home Tour || Get a glimpse into my home!

Welcome to one of my favourite interior design posts of the year, our Autumn home tour. This season, we were traveling as you probably noticed on my Instagram. Unfortunately we only had time to let you see two rooms when we usually do 6! This year I wanted to add some feminine touches and offset the more masculine furniture pieces we own for both the living-room and dining space. I’m loving non-traditional colours for this transition into fall and I hope you do too! I’ve linked up some incredible Canadian Bloggers sharing their fall home design this week at the end of the post. I hope you’ll follow along with our home tour week.

Edo For A Week #ad #yeg #yegfood

496E5A48-8A2B-451C-9E4C-421DE0C142C1If you’ve caught my Instagram stories this week you would have probably guessed I’ve partnered with Edo Japan. By no means am I new to the franchise, I’ve been loving them for over a decade. I’m so excited to share this exciting partnership opportunity with my family while ‘Edo for a week.’ We got to ’Edo Your Heart Out’ while eating some menu favourites and trying some new finds from the ever evolving Edo Menu.  We made three visits in one week and this is what we found:

Chop Chop Bowls. Perfectly grilled chicken, beef, or crispy tempura shrimp on top of rice, raw veggies, and Savoury Bulgogi sauce. We tried both the shrimp and beef this past week. This has been a go-to of mine since last summer. I love the fresh ingredients and size. I usually share mine with my toddler. He loves it as much as I do!

Iced Coconut Coffee: This one is unreal! It’s like a vacation in a cup. During this heatwave it was the perfect midmorning break for this mama.

Tempura Sweet Potatoe. A twist on the ever so popular tempura shrimp, this appetizer was my children’s fav of the week. They couldn’t get enough!

I love to take advantage of the same day delivery within 10km of a Nordstrom location. This service is available for $15. Also, hassle free in-store returns make it easy to stock up on your favourite wardrobe essentials! Did you know you can get alterations in-store on your Anniversary purchases! Now that’s an exceptional shopping experience if I don’t say so myself.

Have you shopped the legardary sale yet?
