I’m so proud to be a Rocky Mountain Soap Co. Ambassador this year. Their philosophy is simply, very product you’ll find on they create is toxin-free and 100% natural. No synthetics, natural and never tested on animals. It’s makes shopping with them simple and worry free, you know exactly what you are putting on your skin. For this month I wanted to share with you my lip care favourites.
This is a fresh, minty scrub that gently removes dead skin and moisturizes. It’s the perfect first set to any pout. Weather you’re wearing a lipstick or coloured gloss, prepping your lips with this scrub will improve the texture and ease application. The bamboo gently exfoliates, renewing skin by helping to accelerate cell turnover. It’s a lip no brainer.
Let’s start with these cute little jars, quench your lips with their rich organic avocado, coconut oil, and beeswax formula. Supreme hydration with a touch of colour. I’m wearing Hibiscus Pink! But there are plenty of other tints if pinks don’t sit your fancy. I’m also partial to Fresh Fig.
Back to my beauty blogging ways with some natural product picks from Walmart Canada. They carry a wide variety of organic beauty finds for hair, body and face in-store and online.

From all natural options, to clinical I’ve got some great product picks you don’t want to miss. The majority of masks I’ve been coveting lately have fallen under the organic category, so most you can find at The Detox Market Canada.

September is Baby Safety month, so I’ve joined forces with Britax and West Coast Kids to give you a few simple tips and tricks to help you keep your LO safe on the road. Here are my September Tips Car Seat Edition:
I found it helpful to go in store and speak with West Coast Kids. With a few simple questions: like babies height, weight and age. My vehicle type and what kind of features I was looking for, they easily pointed me in the right direction and showed me a few options that fit my children safety wise and our lifestyle. We went with Boulevard CT for Harper and the Frontier CT for Alastair. Both seats were certified for aircraft travel as well, which was a great bonus feature for us.
It is important to follow the directions provided with the child seat AND the vehicle in order to achieve a proper installation. I got both my owners manual for our vehicle and the installation manual to give them both a read through before attempting to install.
After installation, it’s important to check tightness. Check base for excessive movement. Excessive movement is described as movement of more than one inch side-to-side or front-to-back at the belt path. You can even get your installation checked by a professional. Please see a list HERE.
Both of the seats that we choose will be promoed tomorrow. All Britax Click-Tight car seats are 15% off for THREE DAYS ONLY! This sale is only available at West Coast Kids.
Disclaimer: This post WAS NOT paid by either West Coast Kids or Britax but sample product was provided free for testing purposes.
Fall is by far my favourite season in all ways. I love the leafs, the crisp air, the fashion and of course the home decor! I know you may think I’m jumping the Autumn gun but I couldn’t wait to show you this seasonal table setting I created with The Brick. Later this month I will share a full fall home tour but until then I thought I give you a little inspiration for your next dinner party.
