You Only Have One Skin

So take care of it! 

A few weeks ago, I wrote about how I was approached by Bright Side Skin Care about their organic product line. As a girl who appreciates beauty products, I couldn’t resist the urge of pampering my skin, so I immediately said “Yes Please!”


When my package arrived,  I was shocked to see that I received full size products, (I had expected only small size bottles) and was equally impressed by the fact I was given the whole product line to try. Now that’s a company who takes care of its clients.


I love the daisy design, black and white with the hint of yellow. Simple, but sophisticated and smart. I think it can also been very gender neutral, for example, my husband could easily travel with this skincare line without worry about it looking too feminine. It grabbed my attention instantly, and really lives up to the company image of being organic, chemical free and natural. Tasteful marketing.

The products are made of the highest quality ingredients, and are free of many of the chemicals found in mainstream products. The company strives to ensure its products are free of fragrance, parabens, sulfates, Lanolin, pthalates, carcinogens, cruelty and gluten (*to a certain point).

Here is the picture of my skin prior to beginning my new skin care routine.


To really give the feel of a spa, I arranged my products neatly along my bathroom sink.





I consistently tried this product (in fact I am still using it) over two weeks. What’s great is that less is more. The product lathers up with only a small amount (I’d say about a dime size) and the creams spread so easily and lightly.




The products I received were for combination skin. It works for all skin types, given its antioxidants that help to limit the damaging effects of skin. What is cool is that the cleanser itself has an activate charcoal which helps to properly clean your skin from daily toxins.



What I loved about the cleanser? The lather and the feeling that it actually removed the dirt, make up and the feeling of sweat.

Sometimes I find that face products have too many perfumes in it, but this line doesn’t leave your head spinning with all the different smells. The scent is far more natural and leave you with the feeling of freshness. I love how refreshed I feel first thing in the morning, and it’s soothing effect at night!  
I was also provided this educational video to teach me the proper way to care for my skin with Bright Side Skin Care, check it out!

As a fit mama, I am constantly running around (and literally running) and working out at the gym. I need a product that is easy, light weight and allows me to travel with it or take it to the gym. My time is limited so having an organic and effective product is exactly what I need!

Here I am over two weeks later!

 You will be impressed by how refreshed you will feel and how your skin feels not only smooth, but tight. It is a must have! And I have to say that the prices are also quite reasonable, and something you can easily add to your beauty (or if you are a man, grooming) routine.

Kerri, the founder of the skincare line strives to ensure a quality product, while always offering a high level of professionalism and passion for her product. I recommend reading her story, and learning more about her driving force.


Cute Toddler Book Alert #bookreview

Story time is a special time in our household.

As I have shared before, our little one loves to sit and listen while we read her favourite stories. We have noticed that she really loves to read books that she can relate to, whether it is a developmental milestone or a holiday that she is currently celebrating. We usually end up reading those stories multiple times. She loves books, there is no doubt. This could be us sitting down to read to her, or us watching from the kitchen as she flips through the pages of these very loved stories and pretends to read out loud.

Several months ago, she received her first personalized story book by I See Me. This book is now a classic in our household and we read it at least once a night, and even after we have read it we are flipping through the pages and she is pointing out to all of her favourite parts. Without fail, she can’t help but giggle when she sees our picture hanging on the castle wall in the book.


I can’t say enough wonderful things about this company I See Me! Check out my previous review here.


My little girl recently received a new book from I See Me called My Very Own Fairy Tale Storybook. Again, the book is beautifully written and personalized so sweetly. In a fairy garden far away, she has spent hours over the last month flipping through the pages and asking us to read her this story.

The fairies in the story each share a special quality about little E, including how she is kind, honest, and adorable. Each quality links to a letter of her name. The story reminds us of the need to highlight the special qualities of each child. Positive reinforcement and messaging can go along way, especially at this stage.


Originally, I thought that the book may be a little old for her given the text, but the rhyming and the colourful graphics really grabbed her attention! The length of the story didn’t phase her the slightest. The story kept her interested, giggling and asking me to keep reading. Storybook characters know you, know your personality and likes and dislikes. The graphics made you feel like you were sitting in an enchanted forests, and their individual magic and the love for the reader felt.

Again, outstanding. Since the beginning of my relationship with this company I have not yet been disappointed. Their customer service, professionalism and creativity are outstanding! I look forward to enjoying these books for years to come.
