pampering and basic necessities
One- for baby :
The changing of a diaper is always fun and stinky! that's why I love to keep lewis super fresh with a spray or two of bebe zen's cleansing lotion.( that just sounded like an add ) lol
I was introduced to this line of products through a friend (thanks Lidia )and I use most of their products but these two rank high on my shopping list of must haves.
the soothing cream worked wonders on lewis's eczema!!! I use it on him daily and it's so nice and no over powering scent!!!this stuff works!
Two- for mommy:
My hair went from great to dead after I gave birth, first off I almost lost half of it, ok I 'm exaggerating I lost a lot... and it was dry and tangled and an overall mess . I got it together and chopped the bush and treated it with some serious respect!
I love love love this shampoo and conditioner and people it's lauryl and laureth sulfate free, no artificial color, no artificial fragrance ( it smells great!) it's cruelty free and contains certified organics!
Imagine I got this as a sample in a Christmas tot bag I got from my local health food store (more on them at the bottom)
Three- for baby and me!!!
winter is a b---- and i love to be outdoors so does the little one and were we suffering, the cold chapped cheeks and red noses... well I found it, a cream we can both use that protects and hydrates.
no more chapped red cheeks for us! I use their cleansing milk and scrub too love them, and the shea butter of course I use around the eyes, lips, nose and when we're sick with a cold a tiny coat of shea on the nostrils saves them from redness and irritation. It can also be used as a natural sun block it has a natural SPF 15 !!!
Four - beauty for mommy
I was on the quest for natural cosmetics... after spending a fortune on good or what I thought was good cosmetics, I realized wow these companies harm animals, use chemicals, and basically go against all I stand for so why support them ???Sorry Guerlain, Chanel , you no longer hold my heart. I need to do to my face what my philosophy in life is - be natural.
I wanted to by the whole display... but settled for mascara and eye liner for now both which I love!!!!!!!!!!
I can't wait to try the compact foundation, and their terra cotta blush is really cooked!!! Thats real sun kissed! Got to get me those and so much more and guess what MADE IN ITALY ( viva l'italia bella!)
Five- inside out
I noticed all these things are for the outside... well heres' one for the inside!!! I don't know where I would be without my morning shake , when the baby gets up it's too early to have breakfast I'm half asleep and thankfully this simple task of shaking two spoons with a cup and 1/2 of almond milk gets me going. So easy and good and guilt free...when has chocolate been so guilt free?? It assures me the nutrients I need and the omegas, not to mention the probiotics... oh yes it's all in there and more!!!
simple easy and the BEST tasting shake I have ever tried. I pick these up 2 at a time for fear of running out. I can't wait for lewis to be able to enjoy these!!!
There you have it my top 5 secrets.... not any more!
I do have one more to share....
All of these fabulous products I find at my local health store. Bio Terre
A fabulous store where ( besides the fact i go there almost daily) people know me by name! I'm always greeted with a smile, and I have grown to love shopping there it's always so relaxing and exciting at the same time!!!! If your ever in the neighborhood drop in you'll see me for sure, Rene, Jacinthe, and Martine !
Such a great shop filled with all these amazing products and so much more! Really in health food stores they rank up top for me as my favorite. They are truly on top of the game in health. It is an easy shop, to shop in. Clean, quaint but not stuffy, the displays are organized making it easy to find products and really ask there and you shall receive! I think I'll send them this just so that they know how thankful I am to have a great place to shop !
So glad to have shared,
