1 – Fall Decor. I do not go all out but do a few little things to make the house feel more like fall.
2 – Live Clean. I know I say this all the time but they spoil me and we love their products. I swear they always know just what we need too. All these body washes smell so darn good! The new one, Soothing Vanilla Oatmeal might be my favourite. It also comes in a hand soap! With all the talk about antibacterial these days I love that all their products are safe for our whole family, vegan, sulfate/phthalate/petrolatum/silcone/dye free, no animal by-products and are eco-friendly. Both these products have certified organic botanical of vanilla and chamomile (hence the lovely smell) to help soothe the skin.
The other body washes are their coconut milk moisturizing body wash, exotic nectar argan oil replenishing body wash and their fresh water moisturizing body wash.
3 – Zulu (glass) water bottle. I love my Contigo but wanted to make the switch to glass since I use my water bottle 24/7. I found a two pack at Costco for $19!
4 – Fall. I know, I said Fall decor already but every year I fall more in love with this season.
First of all, I am a sucker for packaging, and they nailed their packaging. I have been curious about oil pulling in the past so wanted to give this product a try. The company is based out of Vancouver and I love to support Canadian companies. All the ingredients they use are GMO free, organic and ethically sourced. They only use the highest quality virgin, organic coconut oil.
Why try oil pulling I bet you are thinking? Well there are a ton of benefits they list, from whiter teeth, improved digestion, healthier gums, clearer skin and more.
The product I received was a 14 day kit of individual packages of their Cool Mint Coconut Oil Pulling Kit. I had no idea how I would do with it since you empty the oil into your mouth and swoosh it around for 10-20 minutes. The first day I did gag a lot but found if I kept busy I wa a lot better. Typically I did it for 10-15 minutes. It took me 16 days since I missed two days – they recommend doing it before eating or brushing your teeth.
My results I do think my teeth are whiter by a shade but it is hard to tell and in photos it is not noticeable. I cannot say I saw any other benefits in just 14 days but would think some of the benefits they list would come after another 2 weeks of doing it. My teeth and breath did seems a lot cleaner and fresher during the 2 weeks though which I really liked!
5 – These raincoast crisps. These are by far my favourite crackers – so I rarely buy them since I will eat them all in 24 hours!
6 – My mug. We were in Chapters right before my birthday and Avery picked it up and told me it was my present so basically Chad had to buy it 😉
7 – PiYo. I wanted something different for the next couple months that focused on core work. After only a week I know I picked the right program. It challenges me mentally too! It is the perfect balance while I work on shorter, faster runs as well.
8 – My new Lorna Jane activewear. I hosted a party at my house and Chad treated me to a couple pieces for my birthday gift. They are opening a store in Calgary next month for anyone that is interested in seeing more of their line!
This is probably already my favourite sports bra. It has adjustable straps, removable padding and SO comfy. I honestly did not know what I was missing out on! It has the perfect amount of support too.
And these crops are flattering and I love the fabric (I am not a Lulu pant fabric fan!) – it is soft and comfortable.
What are you loving these days?
