amazing Amazon finds

Updated: Jul 8

Hey Amazon shoppers! Welcome to a fun little post filled with some of my fav products and a link associated to make your shopping as easy as pie! Amazon has really impressed me with some of their skincare options, items and tools. Which is why I am here to share with you some of my favs!

Things listed here are items I use in my own beauty routines and what I use in clinic as a business owner I also had to share some of my favourite skincare books that have taught me so much! In addition to all things skincare I have links to the few home organization finds that help keep things tidy at home (tidy and organized things keep me sane), you will also see my important travel items, and it was a must to share my bridal finds too! If getting married has taught me anything, it is share all your bridal information as much as possible!! Oh and one last addition...Frankie also wanted to leave a few of his favourite things, he felt left out. He felt that since he is quite active in the snuggles while blogs get written and uploaded, he felt his input on his favourite dog toys was important here too, so there's that little fun surprise for you and your puppy!

My Beauty Routines & Products

Ice Globes : These are fantastic for all skin types. Face globes are primarily used to help treat puffiness, redness and flushing in the skin. It provides immediate relief! Especially if you find your skin flushes easily and or retains a lot of heat, these globes can be a beautiful option. They are SUPER easy to use as well! I use these under my eyes when puffy, I use these in a gentle lymphatic stimulation kind of way and I use these if I ever feel under the weather; even self induced illness if you are catching my drift.

These ice globes are used in clinic, especially in our famous Fire & Ice Treat•ment! (Book your Fire & Ice) If you are an aesthetician I highly recommend adding these to your tool belt. This will not only provide an amazing result, but it adds to your services, which makes it more fun for you and more luxurious for the client. Shop now and add these to your home routine and make it spa style. These ones are my favourite because they are so cute and match my aesthetic.

This next option is great if you are clumsy like me. Yes, I have dropped the ones above before and it was not a great moment... so I opted for these less cute but still super effective Ice Globes.

Refillable Ice Roller: Similar to the Ice globes but this option is refillable! This Refillable Ice Roller can save your skin and it feels oh, so good doing so! It can also be a perfect way to wake up and an easy quick addition to your morning routine. If you don't cleanse in the morning, thats fine! Rub this on your skin, apply your hyaluronic acid and you will be more than refreshed and hydrated! You will love this in the summer time and on vacation as well! This little guy is small enough to be packed up and taken with you! (just make sure you travel with it empty and fill it when you arrive to your destination haha) Don't forget, you can have some fun with it! Crush up some cucumber, or add turmeric or even aloe to up-level the skin benefits! This has saved me from many swollen mornings and those mornings with wicked headaches! Happy ice rolling and happy skincare shopping!

Facial Cupping Set: If you find you retain water easily, and find puffiness is common; facial cupping is a great option for you. If you find your face can be overly bloated, facial cupping is a great option for you. If you find you want a natural solution for your fine lines or wrinkles, facial cupping is a great option for you. If you find you have congestion or blemishes, facial cupping can be a great option for you. I cannot teach this, but I can provide tips and tricks on what to do. Always consult your doctor if you have underlining health concerns or any active conditions; or if you have any reason to believe this may not be a safe practice for you. If you have acne avoid going over the lesions, you can go around the blemishes and work at lymphatic points to encourage drainage. You could even work the neck and decollaté to help release some congestion. Moving upward with the Facial Cupping Set is to give a nice lift and contour treatment to the skin, defining jaw line, cheek bones and plumping up fine lines. Moving downward is for drainage. This is where its important to watch a YouTube video or two to know what main spots you should be sliding by. Oh, and keep moving, stopping will cause bruising and use oil for an effortless glide!

Pimple Patches: If you know me, you know I swear by spot treatments! Pimple Patches are another way to treat blemishes! You can use these as you feel or see a blemish. Simply and easily cover the blemish and leave it there for the day if you are working from home or it can be apart of your night time routine and leave them on as you sleep. You can apply one or as many as your skin needs! They are like pimple bandaids! This is also great because if they are covered, you are les likly to pick! So you can tell I'm in support of this. These Pimple Patches work by covering the inflamed spot while the hydrocolloid helps absorb bacteria and reduce further growth!

Silk Pillow Case 2 PK: Beauty sleep is a real thing. This is where the Silk Pillow Case 2 PK cases come in. Silk pillow cases pull less on hair, absorb less facial product (allowing it to sink into the skin verses the pillow case), cause less wrinkles and creases while your face is pushed into the pillow and silk is less abrasive for your skin. Something that takes no extra effort (except for ordering them) with a benefit, sounds good to me! Probably even sounds good to you! I suggest ordering a few as well so that when its wash day you have some extras available. Extra special if you have these in your guest room for when they come over! Healthy beautiful skin and hair for all! When shopping this link you will see different prices for the different colour options… kinda annoying if you ask me, but it is what it is.

Eucerin Aquaphor: The product recommendation to use for 2-4 days post Morpheus8! Dont have this in your routine to heal your skin post Morpheus8? Purchase here and experience even better healing and relief! Thi is what is applied after the treatment before you are sent home!

NOW Pure Jojoba Oil : There is so much fear in oils, but natural oils are safe and beneficial! We must stay away from synthetic oils and those are not these! Jojoba oil is an oil I have been using for years as an option for my chest and face massages! I also love to add some oil if my skin is dry or sensitive, I find adding a little facial oil so soothing and hydrating. I also love a good excuse to massage my face! This (and the other oils I use and recomend) are perfect to use with your facial tools such as your home hand held LED, jade roller, gut sha and more! So those are general tips about oils. In terms of Jojoba oil, this is a great option because its hypoallergenic, it promotes collagen synthesis, controls sebum production, non comedogenic, moisturizing, anti bacterial and antioxidant. As you can see its great for all skin types, super safe and has many benefits!

NOW Grape Seed Oil Mirroring what was mentioned above, this massage oil compliments what was said. However, I will share with you the benefits of grape seed oil specifically. Grape seed oil is great for all skin types, especially sensitive skin and those with blemish prone skin. Grapeseed helps balance free radicals and balances pH- which means treats bacteria and is hydrating. Grape seed is naturally antimicrobial which means it inhibits or slows the spread of harmful microorganisms; hence its importance and effectiveness in helping with acne/blemish prone skin. Grape Seed oil is also more affordable than jojoba oil. So sometimes this is a more suitable option for in clinic use. I like this two larger size package deal so that I have one in use and one in storage!

Velcro (no heat) Hair Rollers: I have always been really concerned with my hair. I always want it to grow more, be thicker, and be styled nicely. The catch is, my hair does not grow (or barely, nothing worth noting) its quite thin (although I do have to say this has improved) and it holds no style. I have not figured out how to make these work perfectly with my hair, I love them because they are heatless which doesn't cause damage to my hair. These Velcro buddies also provides a volume I cannot achieve naturally. So thats at least something for me! If you have thin hair, let them stay in your hair for a few hours, texture spray also helps! A little bonus about this specific product it has the cutest little organizer pouch! Its easy to store, easy to travel with and keeps everything tidy and in one place. Thats a big thing for a type-A like myself!

Dry Brush: Dry brushing is a popular and great trend right now, so here is your link to hop on the trend and treat your body! Great for exfoliating dead skin, improving smooth healthy radiant body skin, fights cellulite and encourage some sexy lymphatic drainage! Great to do before the shower and especially in those cool winter months! This one is great because the size is easy to use and monomer and the price, well its one that many people can get on board with! I’m always down for a good price for a good product!

Phillips OneBlade 360Face: This is your saving grace for any ingrown hairs! Shaving in sensitive areas? Sick of razor burn and want a smooth ulternative in betwen your laser sessions? Here is your newest secret weapon!

Health Conscious

GoGo Quinoa Pasta: We are a pasting loving household. Sometimes a healthy option is imperative. Especially for me, I find if I eat a big bowl of pasta, or even if I eat it often I get super bloated. Not just like, oh yah she had a lot of pasta bloated; like we are talking about uncomfortable bloated, won't poop for days kind of bloated. So this is a perfect option and the added protein is a plus too! You can also find this brand and other pasta (like Fusili, macaroni, etc) at Superstore, Healthy Planet and Costco. I just find the size and price best on amazon. That being said, its not always easy to find or in stock- but hey good luck! It’s worth the shot!

GoGo Quinoa Cookies: Okay, so I get it everything in moderation and I am a firm believer on still snacking on your fav things… but who doesn’t like a healthier alternative. Like if the option is there, why not indulge during the times your trying to avoid your true guilty pleasure. You will also not even realize these are healthier than your other chocolate chip cookies. These are so yummy and a perfect must have for my lunch! Its a quick two biter cookie I can eat during my busy break-less days!

Hair, Skin & Nails Supplement: Dr. Klein's is a brand I retail in clinic, it is Canadian farmed, Canadian formulated and invented by one of our own Canadian Doctors! This is a supplement that could answer a lot of unknown questions for you as to why your hair, skin and nails are suferring! Look into this and see if it matches your goals! I have loved recommending and using this brand! I retail a few of their supplemnts and swear by their colagen booser powder.

Vegan Collagen Booster Powder: Dr. Klein's is a brand I retail in my clinic! Its a brand that is proudly Canadian. The doctor who has founded the company and does lots of the researh is Canada, it is farmed in Alberta so on Canadian soil and is formulated and packaged in Candada, feels good to support our own! This powder I fell in love with quickly. Its tasteless, oarless and I really do feel like it made a difference in my hair! Thats where I noticed it the most!

Youtheory Collagen Capsules: I used these capsules before using Dr. Kleins colagen powder. I paired these collagen capsules with Arbonnes Skin elixir as my daily collagen boost. Full honesty, I have only been using the powder for a few months,and have discontinued using these. However, I love to provide options! I did use this brand for quite some time and I only stopped because I found a powder option. You can also find this brand at Costco!

For my Fellow Aestheticians, Beauty Therapist & Business Owners!

Hey esti-bestie! I hope some of these recommendations are helpful for you in your clinic and to offer to clients. I love spreading the word and sharing my fav things, so here we are! If you want more advice, tips, tricks, products and all things business and beauty follow my instagram page InspirationsBeautyAcademy I would love to get better acquainted. You can also head over to my website and join the email list for savings, early bird registration and much much more to come! Spreading the love from one beauty therapist to another!

As I outline these for aestheticians, I realize these totally can be for at home if you want a really luxurious set up! I know my dream bathroom has all kinds of tools and equipment, so professional or not, these can could be for you!

Alright, back to Amazon Shopping!

The Tools:

Skincare Mini Fridge: This is an item I dont have in my bathroom currently, but it is in my dream bathroom. I love it in my clinic for my sensitive skins and for those Treat•ments that can be a bit spicy. Using a roller, serum, sheet mask or eye gels that have been in the fridge is next level. Its also amazing to see how much of the flushing and redness goes down! Additionally you will feel how quick we can help heat escape the skin! It is all about bringing forward a luxury sensory experience while providing the best result! This does the trick! Especially for home keep your skincare, put your Ice Globes in here and even use the front light up mirror for your makeup applications!

3 PC Bottle Warmer: I love this tool (equipment) for so many reasons! Like I had just mentioned I am all about luxury and doing the little things that are actually the big things. A 3 PC Bottle Warmeris just that. Heat up your massage oil so its nice and warm for the client (yum), I also fill one of the bottles with water so that the facial water I use is always warm (my tap takes forever to get warm water to me) This also saves time in-between clients because the water is refiled and ready for the next. I also use this for my ultrasound gel for when I do laser or ultrasound. Nothing like some freezing gel to wake you up. See, it's the little things that add to the wow factor. This is a simple secret to make your clinic and services stand out!

Tweezer Set of 2: Everyone needs a good set of tweezers, I don’t care who you are or what you do. Tweezers should be in everyones bathroom and every beauty therapist’s treatment room. Finding a good set, look no more! I love this pair because they can grip the finest smallest hairs and they can tug in one swift movement those thick long angry looking brow hairs. I go for the teal colour which you will see because it goes great with my clinic aesthetic, but hey you can choose a colour you prefer, or get the teal and think of me!

Extractor Tool: One option I use in clinic to remove the congestion. Although it is not the clients favourite part it is one of the most important steps in a good facial!

Stress Balls: Smiling faces makes everything better! Sometimes a stress ball is needed for some comfort or even distraction. If you offer services like laser hair removal, morpheus8, IPL, microneedling or do extractions you know exactly what I am talking about. My clients love a little stress ball. The smile doesn’t hurt either… although often times it’s covered up with a glove! The glove is just an easy way to discard and keep the stress ball clean. Wiping it with disinfectant wipes all the time breaks down the coating and fabric. But with a pack with this many, sometimes that doesn’t matter!

Stainless Steel Little Cups: These are used for any tinting service so that the white or glass bowls do not get any tint or stain. These stainless steel cups seem to hold up really well! Although they may primarily be for a restaurant, like dipping your fries into ketchup; these re great for the beauty world!

Creating the Cozy:

Twin Duvet: Creating the table to be extra cozy is a big goal of mine. I personally love being covered in fluff, with super soft things around me and even some weight is good; So, naturally thats my goal with the clinic table. This Twin Duvet is a lovely option, especially if a weighted blanket is not the clients preference. Give me allllll the cozy possible! PS. The table (AKA "bed") is one thing almost all my clients comment on... so I must be doing something right!

Twin Duvet Cover: Having white things in the clinic look clean and sharp, but yes they get dirtier easier with oils and masks and all the fun stuff! This is why having a Twin Duvet Cover for the duvet itself is important! Remove the cover and clean that! It keeps the Twin Duvet in great condition longer and it makes for easier clean up! It’s one thing to have the coziest treatment room, but its another to have a sanitary clean one!

3 Piece Set, Massage Table Flannel Sheets: I LOVE this 3 piece set! I was so happy when I saw it, anxious for it to meet my expectations when I ordered it and thrilled when I received it! This is defiantly a must have and a highly recommended package deal for all my clinic owners!

6 Pack Body Best Fitted Massage Table Sheets: Sheets are constantly on rotation in my clinic so I have many many many sets! Fitted sheets we use on all our tables so I always have extras of these!

Massage Table Warmer: This deserves a 5 star rating. If you are looking for ONE simple way to make your table that much cozier, this is it. It is SO simple and EVERYONE will comment! I turn mine on at the beginning of my day and the only time I tamper with it is if someone asks me to turn it down or turn it off. In the winter (especially Canadian winters) this does not go unnoticed let me tell you. In the summer I have it on, believe it or not! I just have the settings super low. This Massage Table Warmer brings your service up a star without even touching the client.

Memory Foam table Topper: This is for a massage table size! Adding comfot is a big thing to set you apart and to keep all services luxurious. Details like this will not be missed. Comfort is one of our clinic's secret sauces!

Velcro Head Bands: I use these in professionally, but truth be told they are handy when doing your home routine! Not a bad thing to have on hand! Especially it being a pack of 3! Great deal for work and for home!

Consumables / Disposables:

Disposable Round Multi-colour Facial Sponges: Although I would prefer them to be white (which can be found, it just depends if you want to pay for it) I recommend this package of yellow and multi colour sponges because the pricing is amazing for the quality and how many you get. So if it has to be a little off brand to save a few bucks... I do. Plus, I am not even sure the clients notice or care! Here is the link to my at this moment favourite Disposable Round Multi-colour Facial Sponges. This is a link that might change periodically. I truly look for a good deal, I look at how many are in the one package and compare pricing.

Disposable Lip Applicators: Of course there are many uses for these little guys, I find these are always important to have on the cart or in storage. Again, love the quality, quantity and price. Yes you can go super cute with these and match your colours or get sparkly sticks and yes those are super cute, I am a gal that loves sparkle; but this is another item I go for practicality over cute-ness (which doesn't happen often if I am being honest) I personally try and splurge for the cuteness and on brand for the things clients really see and experience! That’s just me though, if you are going for all on brand you go! Same deal with the Disposable Lip Applicators as theDisposable Round Multi-colour Facial Sponges facial sponges. Compare your cost per use to see what is budget friendly! The link here is the one I very frequently choose over other deals I see!

Gauze: Often something as simple as these can be an esti-bestie! Even clients can comment “ooh ,what is that its so soft” and your magic answer can be as simple as Gauze! It’s funny how a consumable like this can be so loved! It could even be used in home care to aid in makeup removal and cleansing if desired so!

Disposable Hair Wraps: Some services and some products call for a Disposable Hair Wraps. It just is what it is! I try to avoid using as many disposable items as possible to be environmental conscious... but sometimes there's a need for items like this. Especially if you use those Estimax Masks, you know that these are always a good idea, or with dermaplaning to help you outline exactly what hair clients would like to be removed, these are tightly snug to the head so you can move and adjust giving you the perfect hair line outline!

BIC Razors PKG 10: These are not the razors I recommend for home use or shower shaving. These are what I use before laser treatments. The area must be clean shaven before any laser treatment and sometime clients don't shave the area, so as an aesthetician providing this service having these on hand is super important!

Ultrasound Gel 5 Litres: We use ultrasound gel for laser hair removal and IPL in the clinic, so if you also do services that you need ultrasound gel, this is the one I always order. Great price, fast shipping, easy to store and stock and I love the size so it's easy to refill the little squeeze tubes.

Clinic Decor:

Set of 4 White Certificate Frames: As you grow your knowledge and expertise, you should flaunt it in your space. I love these affordable yet simple white frames! Perfect to rest on a desk or hang on your wall. Show off those certificates! They are a reasonable price and do the job they need to do. Again, in my clinic white is the vibe; but of course do what speaks to you and match your aesthetic!

6 Pack 5X7 White Picture Frames: These are great for a few spots in clinic that I want to put a nice photo, some word art, a promotional note or even some amazing pre and post results! These frames were just perfect for all these uses! Of course choose your size and your colour but having frames can be such an easy and personal touch! I am excited to share what I am using all mine for in clinic!

Hand Cream & Soap Dispensers: I quickly became obsessed with this look once I changed all the soap and cream dispensers in my house. it just adds an element of class that is just so stunning. These of course are my work colours, which was a need because I LOVE to stay on brand! I have a set of these in each clinic room and the bathroom!

Keeping the Clinic Clean

Are we team Cavi or PREempt? What do we prefer!? Disinfecting is not a negotiable and isn’t somewhere cost is a factor for me. I do purchase the one I feel most confident in, making sure its doing its job most effectively. I also make sure its approved and following Health Canada standards, so make sure whereever you are that you are following proper recomendations and protocol. I personally use PREempt but have not strayed away to CaviWipes because PREempt is what I know and use.. would love to learn your thoughts on CaviWipes!

Toilet Bowl Cleaner Pucks: The name says it all. An easy way to keep the clinic clean. Of course this does not take over my full bathroom clean, but boy does it help the daily maintenance. I can't see why these wouldn't be suitable for home too!? I was so focused on work I forgot about home... I think that may have just changed!

Learn More

I love learning about skincare (as you know) and I also love sharing it, which you also know by now! Cuddle up and read to expand your knowledge! These are my top three fav books in skincare!

- Eat Pretty Jolene Hart - Reverse the Signs of Aging - Dr. Nigma Talib - The Beauty Insider - Alison Young

- Beyond Soap - Dr. Sandy Skotnicki and Christopher Shuigan

These may not be skincare books, but darn they are good recommendations. I love reading about self improvement, skincare, business or something inspirational;. So these are almost must adds to your home library.

House Organization

I am no Marie Kondo but I do love a good organization hack and or gadget! One of my favourite things to do lately is purge my house (and clinic) and then create new systems with sexy organization so that its easy to maintain and looks good always! If you are like me, then maybe some of these links will ease your mind and keep things organized! Mmm, sexy!

8 Pack Velvet Jewelry Organizer: One of the ways I am decluttering is going through even the small things like my jewelry drawer, getting rid of things of course but also cleaning the jewelry and setting it up in an organized easy appealing fashion. Already doing this has me excited to wear some jewelry pieces I forgot about. Win win!

Silicone Baking Cups: This is more of an item that I needed one day baking muffins, the paper muffin wraps can be super cute and great for going to an event, or for your kids birthday to bring to school; you know somewhere you don’t need to collect the cups back (haha) these are great for home baking and are environmental friendly, yay to less trash and more reusable items!

8 x 5 x 1.75 Inch Clear Plastic Storage Containers (12pk) : Weirdly, I have so many craft supplies, markers, pencil crayons, stickers you name it. Its like I have four children or am a preschool teacher; neither are true. Anyways, I use these containers as one way to keep things organized. I love clear because I can see what is inside!

Delicate Laundry Bags: Ok, I have two wonderful options for you! My mom is THE LAUNDRY QUEEN, (amongst many other things) but this lady and her laundry skills are next level. I swear I would have the same underwear and t-shirts now as I did in grade 5 if I never grew and she continued to do my laundry. This is how impressive she is with laundry. I started doing my own many years ago and recently I just became incredibly fed up with ruining everything and things just not being like how she did them. I thought over time my skill level would just develop... little did I know there are some serious secrets to laundry doing. These are one of her many secrets! I started usng delicate laundry bags for those shirts I love or those fluffy sweters or whatver else I have been ruining like crazy and immediately my life was changed. THESE ARE A MUST HAVE especially when trying to navigate adulting!

Option 1: 2 pack of honeycomb mesh laundry bags

Option 2: 3 Pack of honeycomb mesh laundry bags

Acrylic Sunglass Organizer (2 Pack): Once I ordered my first set, I immedielty ordered two more! These were exactly what I wanted for one of my drawers in our new IKEA wardrobe! PERFECTION! Clean, organized, elegant and they don't move when the drawers open and close.

4 Pack Bedsheet Organizing Containers: While I nest, I am finding that I want the house to be SUPER organized. Like every drawer, every closet and every corner NEEDS its own organizational system... When I saw this my jaw hit the floor! A perfect, simple and tidy solution to all those loose sheets! These things make me so happy!

Home Decor / Cozy Vibes

Weighted Blanket Dark Grey 15 LBS Queen Size : I love a weighted blanket! If you have experienced any of our facials you know a weighted blanket is essential for the cozy vibes in clinic! Why not bring this spa essential to your home?! You will also see there will be a few links, the biggest thing to watch for is the COLOUR and SIZE.

Weighted Blanked White 15 LBS Queen Size: I love a weighted blanket! If you have experienced any of our facials you know a weighted blanket is essential for the cozy vibes in clinic!

6 Pack Matte Black Cabinet Handles: I used these on our beautiful IKEA closet built ins! We covered a wall in our master room to do a wardrobe wall and I could not be more obsessed. Adding these handles gave such a modern luxury finish!

Pro Traveller Items

Air Tags: This one item can save your trip! Thankfully I have not had to use these yet.. I mean they have been in my luggage, but we have not had to track our luggage down. Now that I say this, I hope I am not jinxing myself... but I'll risk it just to share this item with you! Sometimes the peace of mind is worth the price!

Travel Pillow: I ordered my husband the black one, and of course got the pink one for myself. These were such a staple for our honeymoon. With a flight to Greece and many layovers, this was something I was grateful to have! I even saw two other ladies with the same pillow... which tells you I am not the only one who would recomend this poillow! Oh and did I mention its memory foam! Funny quick story... after a long travel day, waiting for anoher flight... I was using this pillow and my husband pointed out I was using it upside down....embarrassed at first, but then I realized... it was comfy both ways!!! sometimes using a pillow a different way can provide a new level of support and comfort! WIN WIN WIN! Here is a hilarious selfie to prove it all!

Compression Packing Cubes: If you are like me, you are not a light packer. I challenged myself to only bring a carry on for our honeymoon... truthfully I thought this was an impossible task until my cousin recomended these. Where have I been!? If you haven't heard of these either, I have just helped you save money since now you won't have to pay the $100 to check your bag! I seriously packed SO many option items in just a carry on by using these compression bags.

Sun Protection / Woman's Visor: I have been looking for a cute visor for a while now... I finally stumbled upon this baby and I am excited to bring it on our trip! I love hats and have many options, but having a visor was one thing I didnt have... and I was desiring this so that on those days my hair is a mess or I want to keep it up and still look cute, fashionable but most importantly have SUN PROTECTION, I needed a visor. Nothing is worse than having to take your crazy dirty vacation hair down for your hat to quickly throw it up when you arent wearing your hat. IYKYK. This Visor is the answer and I am excited to upload some pics after this vacay! OH, and you'll see jut ow affordable it is!

Sun Protection / Mens Water Shirt: I truly never would have thought I would search for one of these for my husband or one for myself...I guess thats what age and being in the skincare world does to you? A long sleeve water shirt or long sleeve bikini top, I'm still on the search for, but this one for my husband is great! I got this for him before we went on a trip that he plans to do deep sea fishing, which means boating in the middle of the ocean for hours. This long sleeve mens water shirt will be one I recommend he wears a lot, even just on those summer days doing yard work. Plus he looks good in it, so I cant even be mad.

Water Bottle 40 OZ: I purchased this right before our honeymoon and I have been loving and using it ever since. It was the perfect water bottle for long travel days. Of course you empty it before getting checked but then can immediately fill it up. since its 40 OZ it can hold a-lot of water which is also great to keep you hydrated through your travel days. It was perfect for the trip and our day excursions as well as now being home it's such a great grab for a busy day out! The bottom even has a little secret compartment for pills. This has served it's good many times over! l personally purhased the purple one!!

Bride, Wedding and all the Things!

5x7 Gold Acrylic Sign or Photo Frames: These can be used in so many ways, we used them as part of our centre pieces! I love the simplicity yet modern vibe to these and they are perfect for future events to come! Use them for baby showers, bridal showers, birthday parties, retirement parties- truly any event you want cohesive and stylish these are a great option. Great quality, great quantity, great price! Happy event planning!

Photo captured by the Amazing Maigan Cowan who was our wedding photographer!

Floating Candles: So many venues these days dont allow open flame. It either has to be the battery powered lights and or floating candles that sit in water in a vase where the flame sits under the brim. This was the rule with our venue so this is th oute I took. I used these for all my vases! Perfect size and I personally wanted white! I love it when I can find things I need and it can be shipped right to me! YAY saving gas money in this crazy economy!

Foam Glow Sticks: Get ready to party! Perfect addition to any party espeially a wedding! Use these to ensure your guests are on the dance floor! I really love this idea to have glow sticks but with no worry of them breaking and getting on peoples faces and clothes.

Boob Tape: Lets face it, some of the cute outfits we want to wear to our engagement party, bachelorette and even our wedding dresses dont allow for a bra. This is the best sticky Boob Tape I have come across. Also perfect for all your bridesmaids! This is a must have, even a cute addition to have in your bathroom for your guests at your wedding, those gals attending your wedding tarring it up on the dance floor will appreciate it!

Wood Hangers: This is for your details! Your photographer will likely ask you to have hangers that are not the white plastic kind... and you may think this is an inconvenience at first, but you will love it when you see the photos! It really does add an element of class and appeal that is timeliness for your photos! I purchased these ones I have linked here! If you are like me and want a bit of detail, you can write on them.. put stickers on them or whatever pinterest inspires you to do. I added pearl stickers that I got from the dollar store and hot glued them in place. I also then cut strips of tulle and tied a bow! Remove the bow and one side is completely plain and put the bow back on and you have a full detailed option!

PS. These photos are from my wicked photographer Maigan Cowen, if you dont have a photographer for your wedding yet, hit her up!

Bridal Shower Earrings : Cant decide if you want to go pearls or jewels? Don't choose one or the other ! Choose both! I wore these earrings for my bridal shower, super elegant and bridal, but also a great option to have in your jewellery box for future fancy events!

Ear Lobe Protector: This is not your average amazon product recommendation. Definitely not one you'll see often I am sure. Crazily enough, this product was one I was SO excited to find and order. In high school once when playing flag football, I was tackled and somehow my earring was pulled aggressively and stretched my left earlobe. A weird "injury" from flag football, I know... but if thats the only injury I had to face, I was good with it... Since then, I have had to be super careful with what earrings I can wear. Truthfully,It's been annoying because I am a gal that loves changing up her jewellery and I am all about those fun costume accessories. Up until now I have rocked a saggy arlobe... why I did that? Well thats a great question. Why I wanted so long to order these Ear Lobe Protectors another great question. Regardless here I am now sharing this exciting purchase since for my wedding a droopy earlobe and droopy earing was not the vibe I was going for.

Disco Bachelorette Outfit : Ok, this outfit deserves more than a minute! It is so cute, perfect for any sparkly theme night and is comfy so those disco dance moves are totally doable all night long! I wore this for one night on my bachelorette and I am already trying to create another party theme where I can wear it again. I ordered size small and the pants were a TAD too big, but with the sparkles everywhere using a safety pin at the back (inside) was incredibly forgiving and easy to do!!!

Clear Umbrellas PKG of 12: No one wants rain on their wedding day (immediately singing Alanis Morissette), but sometimes it happens. Having some cute umbrellas to save the day might be exact; what you need. At least be prepared just in case. These are on the list for must haves and even the photogoraher and videophrager suggest to get these! I had a big wedding party and a large family so I needed quite a few just in case.

Vow Books: If you are like me, you likely don't want a phone or a random piece of printer paper up with you while you say you'r vows to each other. My husband and I wrote them and I wanted to make sure not only that they would look good in photos durng the ceremony but also for those detail photos. The other amazing thing is its a great little keep sake to have. I used the cream and green option as it went well with our colours!

Fashion Finds

UPF Mens Long sleeve shirt with Hood: As if something for my husband is my first amazon fashion success story. Besides hats and bathing suit covers, I have not had much luck with amazon clothing for myself. This is something he actually really likes, which I'm telling you does not happen often. My prerequisit on buying him anything is that it must be comfortable... it can be a challenge to find something I approve of thats comfy enough for him. Thank goodness this simple yet classic long sleeve worked! I cannot wait to share a photo of him in this. If you want your hunk to be delicious but cozy, add this to your cart and you both will be happy! It has Ultra Protection Factor 50, which is a bonus. I ordered him a size large and ordered "grey".

Waffle Knit T shirt & Short Lounge Set: Something about waffle knit always gets me. Especially, this cute t-shirt and short set. Perfect for being cute without trying! It says PJ's but I can se myself trotting around the house in this! This was calling my name in so many ways! I bet its calling yours too! I have found a lot of outfits sets I like on amazon have importing fee's and this one did not! What a score! I ordered a small in the colour Rosy and the brand is wkwmrpet.

Waffle Knit long sleeve & short Lounge Set: Cozy sets are such a must have in my life as of lately. I am comfy and still feeling cute and trendy. Easy to wear, easy to style! Although, this is not a maternity specific set, I wore this set during my pregnacy!

2 Set Button Up Lounge Wear & Bathing Suit Cover: I have been looking high and low for a set like this. Yes, I found something similar on previous sites in the past, but truly the price was outrageous and thats what stopped me! UNTIL I FOUND THIS LITTLE NUMBER!! Why have I wanted this so badly? Well first off, because I have been dying to add more colour to my wardrobe and this is bright pink, so its a yes from me! Secondly, is because this is a perfect vacation and beach set for a bathing suit cover!! The two items can be styled together or seperately and I am just alllllll about this set!!! The brand is Ekouaer. I got size small in the color Rose Red. But really had a hard time deciding between rose red and green!

V Neck, Sleeves-less Jump Suit: I think you have caught on by now, comfy and cute is the big vibe trending. This onesie I love because you can add a tank under it for summer, or a long sleeve or sweater for winter! Something about a jump suit or onesie, what ever you call it is just so effortless and easy! Hey pregnant ladies, this is a great option for you too! It is stretchy and baggy so it can be along for the journey as you continue to grow! I ordered a size small in the colour khaki. I was debating between that and green. I just felt the khaki would be more versatile and easier to style.

High Rise Women's Workout Pants: This material is more like the traditional workout pant, light to wear but does show every thing (AKA need seamless underwear). I purchased a small and I the hot pink! I wanted something more fun for my workouts and summer! I have so much black and grey in my closet I am really going for some more jazz in the wardrobe! I can see myself ordering other colours!

Yoga / Workout 2 Piece Set: I really like the material of this set, it is a bit thicker so we shall see how warm it gets flor the summer months, but so far I have really enjoyed wearing this cute little number! The bra is also flattering because it has a little bit of a cup, so it helps support shape and also hides the nipples! I would say it fits small! I even sized up for my growing pregnant belly (got medium) and its snug! I would recommend waring it around the house a time or two before waring it out as its quite tight and I wanted more wiggle room in the groin and butt area! I love how high the pants come up, especially to cover this little (or not so little) pregnancy belly! I can totally see myself ordering another set in a different colour (I first ordered the lavender light purple)

Multi-Coloured Cowl Neck Dress: I wore this to a good friends wedding and got SO many compliments! It was one of the comfiest dresses I have EVER worn especially to a wedding. Even at 6 months pregnant! I ordered a small and it was perfect!! Snug enough to show off the baby bump but loose enough to be flowy, comfy and to show the ribbing of the dress! I will be wearing this to baby showers, and other events! I am actually excited to style it with other shoes and purses! I found it SO easy to wear, style and put together a trendy outfit! Oh, and for the price! Unbeatable!! I did find that I had to be mindful when bending over with this dress, since the top is looser and more of a cowl neck you could see right now the dress, so just hold yourself in! I wore a strapless bra, and beige seem-less underwear and it was perfect!

Ribbed Maxi Dress: Another comfy dress option! I love that there are multiple colours to choose from. This was another dress that I wore one time and knew I would be ordering another colour. This is NOT a maternitiy dress but I ordered it when 8 months pregnant and it has been percect! I just went up in size and its been WONDERFUL! I also love that this will be an option I can have post baby! This was a recommendation by one of my besties and thank goodness for that! She shared it with me, so, here I am sharing it with you!

Short Sleeve button up long sleeve pants PJ set: Ultra soft PJ set! This set was actually recommended to me, and once I felt it I knew why! The fabrcc is so dreamy! I ordered black as another suggstion from a fellow momma. She used this set as part of her hospital bag for pre and post birth! So you bet, this is packed in my hospital bag too!

Frankie's Picks

Anxiety Snuggle Pup: This was something we got for Frankie when he was a little pup! I had read these were great at soothing them to sleep and for when you leave them alone. The battery heart rate mimics their old little mates and mom. I of course had to purchase one of these cute stuffed toys to ease Frankie (and my own) anxiety! Let's be honest the momma guilt is real. This has been a long time friend of Frankies! He recently lent it out to his new friend Rosie who also enjoys Humphrey (thats the name we gave the Anxiety Snuggle Pup... yes we are those people)

Variety Rope Play Pack: Play time is no joke in our house hold. Although Frankie is little, he is mighty! He likes this because a variety is always best for him. He loves a good toy change up. I have also been impressed because they have lasted quite some time! He is not delicate with his toys ill just say that!

Baby On Board

Materna Prenatal Gummy Vitamins: From a recommendation I received, to my recommendation to you! Of course, asking your doctor, OB or midwife is always a great place to start! I found this prenatal to often be SOLD OUT at Shoppers and Rexall, so, if you are finding this to be the case for you as well, here's an easy convenient shopping link to make sure you are always stocked on you prenatal's! Let's face it, sometimes during pregnancy the lazy option of having it come to our door is beyond practical and quite frankly, its smart!

The Rebel Mama's Handbook for (Cool) Moms - Aleks Jassem & Nikita Stanley

I started this book and didn't want to put it down!! First mistake I started it as my bedtime read...but first thing in the morning you bet I picked it back up (oh and shared it on my socials immediately). Its cute, cheeky, has suggestions and honest conversations. Thers even a little note for your partner or supporter and it made me cry, I had Josh read it becase it ws so informative and put into words likely what we wouldnt be able to post birth!

The Fourth Trimester : This book is a support guide on helping you understand and learn the birthing process, what to prepare for and what postpatrum can potentially be. There's alot of support, spiritually and ways to help you learn to be your own advocate!

Baby Velvet Clothing Hanger: Gender neutral colour, non slip velvet clothing hanger for baby girls closet! I also love these style of hangers because I find I can fit more clothing in since the hanger itself is not bulky! I have these in "adult" size in my closets!

Baby Clothes Closet Dividers: I am a sucker for organization! I loved this idea and purchased immediately when I saw it! Also perfect and easy for those extermly sleepy days where your brain isnt functioning, or if you have someone helping you with baby! Easy outlined organization for their clothing and onesies will make changing them even easier! Also, loved the gender neutral wood style! Have fun looking at the cute baby clothes and organzing by month, I know I did!

Travel Foldable Changing Pad: Have not personally used this for changing yet, but I loved the affordable price (under $10), I loved the gender neutral colour and I loved how already compact it is! Real reviews on actually USING this to change baby will come later!

Attitude Baby Laundry Detergent:This is a preference item. Some people think its incredibly important, others think theres no need. This is again where mommas just gotta do what they want to do and what makes them comfortable. Regardless of where you stand, this is the one I purchased to start doing baby girls laundry!

Little Cutie: Baby Shower

Little Cutie Thank you Cards:These are to keep on theme! Sending thank you cards out to those who came and supported us and of course showering our little one with love!


Wood Beaded Flush Mount Light: We changed the light in the nursery and I really do love the outcome! It matches my vision perfectly and was under what I had originally thought I would have to spend! This beautiful light fixture was under $100! This fixture is stunning and can be suitable for many rooms in the house!

I hope you love our favourites and can enjoy the great deals and great products! I will always share my finds! I love all things shopping and all things skincare!
