Affordable Bamboo / Muslin Cotton Swaddles

If you’re pregnant and on social media like myself it is very easy to get sucked into the many different fads for newborns and babies. I will admit it is rather difficult finding gender neutral colours for baby stuff unless you find yourself in the worm hole of instagram. Because the certain colours of burnt orange, sage green, mustard yellow ect.. are not your everyday baby colours you’d pick up in the store on main, the prices of these different coloured baby items are extremely unaffordable for the average low income family. So I went hunting and usually my first place I like to hunt for affordable alternatives is aliexpress.com . After a while of searching, what do you know.. the same ones pop up on the menu. And i’m not just talking similar ones, i’m talking the exact same ones.

Now, keep in mind that a lot of these “instagram stores” don’t actually make their own products they just find trendy items and mark them up the arse which i’m not complaining about. Cause girl, do yo thang. This babe loves a hustler. Get your hustle on. But keep in mind there are other options and mostly likely the same options for a fraction of the price.

So today i’m sharing these 70% Bamboo Fiber / 30% Muslin Cotton Swaddles. These are super beautiful and extremely soft to the touch. I am in love with the colours and will definitely be ordering a few more. I started off with just ordering 2 unless they really weren’t what I was looking for (which hell yes, they were exactly what I was hoping for! if not better!). These are $9.53 a piece so was under $20 for the 2 of them. These come in 8 different solid colours from this specific item and the shipping cost if free 😉

Not going to lie.. this box is back from December but I never got to it with being madly sick with my first trimester of pregnancy and moving house. Which was an exhausting combo. But now I am feeling like myself again and ready to continue on with my blogging journey! This is such a special box I had to wait until I was fully ready to create some beautiful photo’s to share with you how beautiful this subscription box truly is. So let’s continue, shall we? And see what kind of nourishing, spiritual items I received..
If you know me in person, you’ll know that I am definitely a skincare enthusiast. I went to school for Esthetics and worked in the spa industry for 5 years. I truly truly love skincare and the ritual that comes along with it. That being said, I was very pleased to find this rose quartz facial roller in this box! First off I LOVE rose quartz ❤ and secondly this is amazing to add into your skincare ritual.
Who doesn’t love a tasty little treat when opening a subscription box? This adorable chocolate bar is by FINE & RAW chocolate, they are based out of Brooklyn and is plant based / vegan. Which I believe we can also all get down with, guilt free chocolate anyone? You can check out FINE & RAW on their website or instagram below.

Oooh and speaking of skin care and rituals I received this beautiful rose quartz illuminator by SkinOwl. This illuminator is a nourishing blend of plant oils, scented with vanilla and gives your skin a beautiful rose quartz glow. This is subtle enough to wear on your face for a beautiful natural glow while enhancing feelings of self love and peace ❤ Their products are 100% vegan, cruelty-free, fragrance-free, and free from ethoxylation. 95% of their packaging materials are recycled – “from our glass bottles to our packing peanuts.”

And for my bath ritual there is this beautiful bath bomb by Life Flower Care who are a family based company based out of Orange County, California. Made with grapefruit essential oil, herbs of hibiscus, sage & topped with a rose quartz crystal! How nourishing is that? Yes. Please.

Okay so how amazing was this subscription box? This is by far the most well thought out, pieced together box I have ever experienced. I love every single thing this box included and love that all of the companies included are smaller, home owned businesses. If you’re looking for a gift for yourself or someone else, deffinitely check Goddess Provisions out.

☆ ○ ✧ Wicked Good Perfume ✧ ○ ☆

organix_010

I have found the gold pot my friends! Hundreds of perfume blends where there is a scent for everyone. Including the fact that the owner and creator of these delectable  perfumes brew and bottle these in the windy city of Illinois, United States. The name Wicked Good comes from the “magical element that melds the deep, dark and mischievous –wicked notes– with the euphoric, light and desirable –good notes– to create something unique + unexpected — something that’s Wicked Good.”

Wicked Good Perfume is made with pure essential oils, nature identical oils, and botanically derived aroma. Everyone’s body chemistry is different, so if you have ever had the pleasure of rubbing a natural amber block on yourself it will smell a bit different on each persons skin due to our chemistry. This goes for this perfume as well as the fragrance will act with that chemistry to create different results.

There is over 200+ perfume blends to choose from so you will definitely find one that was made for you and have a lot of fun discovering new blends! Wicked Good offers to do samples which is a smart way to go about trying out new perfumes, so you can get a handful of samples and see which really work well with your chemistry ❤

“If you are new to Wicked Good, I encourage you to order a sample. Perfume samples are available for each scent in the ever changing Wicked Good fragrance library. Try a fragrance discovery set: https://etsy.me/2KM5ry4. Since each scent is made-to-order, they can not be returned or exchanged. “

This Chai perfume includes notes of:  Black Tea, Cinnamon, Ginger, Cardamom, Black Pepper, Clove, Star Anise. This spicy, robust chai perfume is a perfect scent for the spicy, deep dark scented lovers. Chai is such a sexy flavour that will tingle anybodies senses. I personally love the roll on versions of perfume as they are great for on the go and the oil application is divine against our delicate skin. This specific scent I personally would wear to a dinner date or sort of evening party as it is quite a deeper lusty scent.

These all come in roller, spray and solid versions.

My second roll on perfume is this lovely Turquoise inspired perfume. This has lovely notes of:  Lemon, Jasmine, Tea Rose, Patchouli, Amber, Akigalawood & Bourbon Vanilla. So as you can imagine this is a very warm bodied scent. This is a great scent for first thing in the morning and could remind one of rain or sunshine as it is has a very lovely smooth finish to the scent and would smell a bit different depending on the weather!

Next I have this solid perfume in Bonfire Beach which is “Toasted Marshmallow, Sandalwood & Sea Salt”. The compact solid perfume is also great for on the go and has a great texture for applying. This has a warm sweet scent along with the sandalwood and a pinch of sea salt. Reminding me of the shoreline & camping, this perfume is not too feminine so I think it would be enjoyed by both women and men for wearing. Although this was just a seasonal scent and is no longer available however there are similar beach side inspired scents you can check out below.

Oooh the dark side of Lavender. If you have a soft spot in your heart for lavender you will love this perfume spray. With notes of:  Spanish Lavender, Rose Absolute, Violet Leaf, Madagascar Vanilla, Amber Resin. This perfume is best explained as bewitching, exotic and unpredictable. This also makes a great refresher in any room, just a little spritz and it lightens up the entire room with its warm, deep, mysterious lavender scent.

This is only a small little dent in the variety of perfumes they offer over at Wicked Good Perfumes! If you are looking to spice up your life with some divine organic perfumes definitely have a look because I guarantee there is something for everyone!

✧ Leven Rose – Pure Organic Rose Water ✧

007

I’m not sure if you’ve had the pleasure of a pure organic rose water mist before, but if you have I know you will agree with me when I say I instantly feel 87% more elegant as the delightful mist hits my delicate skin.

003001006002

If we don’t know about the benefits of rose water I will share a few of them here for you. The main benefit of rose water is that it balances your pH (potential of hydration). Rose water has anti-inflammatory properties that can help reduce the redness of irritated skin, get rid of acne, dermatitis and eczema. It is a great cleanser and aids in removing oil and dirt accumulated in clogged pores.

The beautiful aromas and healing properties of rose water is absolutely divine and very appropriate for everyday use.

004005

This rose water has no preservatives and is all natural. It comes in a 4 fl oz bottle with a separate spray nozzle and retails for $13.97.
