Gifts For Him | Lattes, Sports, Fitness & Jord Wood Watches’ Timeless Style

Is it just mine or does your man also not know exactly what he wants when the big question is popped:

What do you want for Christmas?

In my experience Matt wants gifts that stem off of his current interests – whether that’s hunting gear, novels, Star Wars, basketball, or board games.

Here are a couple gift ideas that men would love this Christmas based on these interests:

Coffee (Specifically Lattes)| Not only will he enjoy the perfect latte or cappucino with the Versimo Milk Frother, but you will too! What’s his is yours, right? This sleek, wireless milk frother warms and frothes your milk. Get ready to cheers your morning lattes with each other because this gift is a win-win!

Sports | Buying a sports jersey requires you to ask a couple questions before you order, there’s nothing worse than getting a jersey with his team or favourite player wrong… especially when he talks about them all the time. I can’t blaim you! Sometimes we tune out when they talk about sports we’re not interested in. Or is that just me?

Fitness | Water is essential to working out – whether he likes running, circuit training, weight lifting, yoga, boxing, soccer, basketball. You name any activity, he needs a water bottle! These awesome water bottles come in 2 styles and so many fun colours, Matt loves his green one. And the Lamose business is local to Alberta, what’s better than supporting local businesses?

Style | Are you looking for a special gift to breathe timeless class into his style (not that he doesn’t already have it…)? You need to browse the stunning collection of customized watches. They are the ideal present if you’re searching for a gift to add your own personal touch to his style.

This watch is the: Conway Series Dark Sandalwood & Burgundy.

The best part? I’ve partnered with Jord Wood Watches to giveaway a $100 giftcard to 1 lucky winner! And everyone who enters will receive a 25% off coupon! The giveaway ends December 15, 2017.

Gift Guide | Sparkle Surprise Gifts Under $35

Anyone else watch Brooklyn Nine-Nine? You know Gina’s “sparkle surpise” face? Then you understand the title of this gift guide!

Right now Nordstrom is having a kick butt Black Friday sale, and it’s not even Black Friday yet!! 

Last year I learned the hard way that if you wait until actual Black Friday, all the things you wanted will be sold out because of pre-Black Friday sales. So if you want to get some gorgeous presents or stocking stuffers for a reduced price this Christmas, now is the time to start putting in your orders.

Like right now.

Everything listed above are gifts under $35 CAD, so there is something for everyone! 

Do you like to accomplish all your Christmas shopping on Black Friday? Or do you splurge on yourself?

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale | Beauty & Bedroom Haul

How to find the best deals at Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

I can’t get enough of these sales! All year long I debate and negotiate with myself to justify buying products for myself, and then when I see them for $90 off I know I cannot pass up such amazing deals. So, here I am again sharing with you what I ordered and what is still on my wishlist from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!

I hope you find something that is exactly what you need for a little pick-me-up, retail therapy!

And if you’re wondering what the makeup mirrors, pink Clarisonic, and pink Foreo eye massager are – check out these links for what they do to transform your beauty routine!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale | Classics Picks

Canada Shipping Nordstrom

It’s no secret that the Nordstrom Anniversary sale is a HUGE hit with bloggers. The fact that Edmonton doesn’t have a Nordstrom store is probably saving us a ton of money throughout the year, but when I do purchase anything from Nordstrom it’s during the Anniversary sale.

Here’s what was in my cart and on my wishlist! I spend the most amount of money on two things (which are super important while living in Canada): 1. Shoes and 2. Outerwear. Those two categories are the ones I want to last the longest and so I always buy high quality shoes and coats.

What items do you spend the most on?

Father’s Day Gift Guide | Practical Dad Gifts by Bed Bath & Beyond

What To Buy The Practical Dad For Father’s Day?

This year I needed help with Father’s Day so I took Matt shopping and he showed me exactly what he wanted for his Father’s Day gifts.

If you watched our Bed Bath & Beyond shopping trip on Instastories, Matt already had a wish list ready to go. I don’t know about your husbands but mine is an effective shopper.

I hope you can find inspiration for the dads in your life from his wish list for Father’s Day:

Nutribullet Pro | Matt’s a milk shake guy, and our blender needed a serious upgrade to make thick milk shakes. Now, the Nutribullet Pro has the power and size to make delicious all the milk shakes his heart desires. And trust me, he’s going to use the Nurtibullet lots!

Cuisinart Verticle Waffle Maker | I look forward to weekend morning waffles for the rest of my life and the endless waffle combinations to be discovered. We chose the vertical waffle maker because #1 we live in an apartment and #2 we have limited counter space. I am so pleased with this waffle maker so far! There’s limited to no mess, it cooks the waffles perfectly, and the automatic timer makers it so I don’t have to babysit it while cooking.

Tervis Tumblers | Matt doesn’t like my excessive coffee mug collection, especially because the cups are so small (in his opinion). These tumblers are the perfect gift because they’re suitable for hot and cold drinks, are microwave safe, dishwasher safe, and freezer safe. You won’t have to worry about wrecking your cups again.

Therapedic TruCool Memory Foam Pillow | I wish I had thought about asking for a new pillow for Mother’s Day! Matt has had the same pillow for the past 5 years (at least) and he really wanted a new pillow – which makes sense since having a good supportive, comfy pillow means you’ll theoretically have a better sleep. Sounds like a great gift to me!

How cute is the packaging? I am in love with their rosy-gold packaging.

BeautyCounter Edmonton Event

It may not look like it but I have problem skin – I’ve had it all my life. My skin is extremely dry, sensitive, and acne-prone. 

In the past, I used skincare that was either for acne that used harsh chemicals to dry out the blemishes leaving my skin a flaky mess, or for dry/sensitive skin that doesn’t combat acne. It was a strange, never-ending battle.

Now? I use a range of natural skincare to balance and sooth my skin, with BeautyCounter as the core and majority of my skincare routine.

Majority? Core? Although I may love the brand and products, I don’t love all the products – which is completely normal because they carry an extensive line of skincare and makeup, and not all beauty products work the same for everyone.

As a blogger I have the opportunity to try and test out a lot of products, and I take great pride in writing my honest experiences for you to read. Creating that trust and transparency is so important to me.

So, what BeautyCounter products do I like? For the past 6 months I’ve been testing and sharing these ones, check it out:

Plumping Peony Skincare Set

Baby & Kids Body Skincare

Creating A Flawless Complexion | Makeup & Skincare

Pregnancy & Hormonal Skin Friendly Makeup

 And where can you buy it?

I enjoy their products so much I am now a BeautyCounter consultant in Edmonton & Surrounding Area (though if you live way outside Edmonton, don’t hesitate to reach out!), and no you won’t see me contacting y’all through Instagram with “copy & paste” scripts to hound you down to join or try the products (anyone else receive random messages from random people trying to sell you random crap, or is that just me?). 

Essentially I want you to love the products just like I do. I’ve had so many people ask me how do I order BeautyCounter? And you can now send me an email/Facebook/Instagram message and I can help you with that! Better yet, maybe we can get coffee and chat (if you’re in the Edmonton area).

Using BeautyCounter is a stepping stone to leading a healthier life, just check out The Never List that bans 1 500 questionable or harmful chemicals from BeautyCounter products.

Canada has done a good job processing new products/chemical ingredients and updating the Canada Cosmetic Ingredient Hotlist (which includes prohibited chemical ingredients and restricted) – while unfortunately in the United States many of those prohibited/restricted ingredients are still allowed in U.S products. The beauty safety standards are skewed.

We worry about substances we put in our bodies like gluten, dairy, sugar, fat, drugs, alcohol, chemicals – but it is also extremely important to watch what we put on our skin. You wouldn’t ingest chemicals like formaldehyde? So why would you apply products to your skin with those chemicals in it? There are safer options available, and it’s my mission to educate you on what those safer options are.

I want to thank these two moms with babes who business for hosting a BeautyCounter social event this past weekend; Dallas, whom I’ve known and grown with over the past few years as moms and bloggers; Tara, who I just met but can’t wait to get to know more.

So, my friends, keep your eyes peeled for sales and fun, social events coming up this year!
