Good Morning beauts, I hope you are all having a wonderful Wednesday so far, you are halfway through the week! You got this guys! This has been a great week so far, thank goodness, filled with lots of deep thinking and trying to relax the body. Since Christmas is fast approaching, and the holidays are right around the corner, often we become so stressed out and forget to put time aside for ourselves. The last thing I completely forget about caring for is my hair to be honest! I have used just boring normal shampoo and conditioner or sometimes I use my purple shampoo to tone the blonde in my hair. I have never really been the type of girl to really put an arm and a leg into my haircare routine….. until NOW.
“I like my products like I like my people. Nontoxic”.
Beauts, I recently tried the “Advanced Hydrating Hair Care Collection” from Monat. I have tried some products in the past from Monat, and really enjoyed them! This is my first time trying this collection and I have to say….wow. Having blonde hair, doing my purple treatments, and styling my hair each day takes a huge toll on it. I have started using these three products; the shampoo, conditioner and the super moisture masque and have absolutely been loving it! The smell of these products you guys is to die for. Honestly it reminds me a tad bit of a cologne smell and I am not complaining whatsoever. I literally have candles in my room that smell like guys…. no big deal…. that scent is just heavenly! I honestly have been looking forward to my baths and hair care routine now!
Start by using the “Advanced Hydrating Shampoo“, lather and leave this product in for 1-2 minutes. When you are done, simply repeat this step again. The first wash removes excess dirt and grime from your hair, while the second wash gets your hair super clean! GUYS…. can I just emphasize how much this shampoo lathers in the second wash…. just wow. I literally can feel my hair getting clean, it’s unreal! I didn’t think I would be this excited about a shampoo in my life….. someone pinch me?! After using the shampoo you are going to take the “Advanced Hydrating Conditioner” and apply this on your hair for 1-2 minutes. This leaves my hair feeling so smooth! I love it so much!
Afterwards, you can apply the “Super Moisture Masque” to your hair 1-2 times per week. Apply this product to clean, towel dried hair. Be sure to leave this product on your hair for at least 5 to ten minutes allowing it to fully absorb. Rinse the masque off afterwards and voila! You are on your way to soft, healthy and beautiful hair. I honestly have been trying to take better care of my hair and skin in these harsh winter months. This has been working wonders for me, and I am so happy I received these products to try out!
“It’s okay to be a little obsessed with your hair…”
I am beyond grateful to have had the wonderful opportunity to try out this line for you guys! If you beauts are interested in trying out some Monat products for yourself simply message my friend Catherine Anne Black on Facebook or Instagram. You can dm her at “@cather1neann3” or find her on Facebook “Catherine Black“. She is super helpful when it comes to all the Monat products and would be more than willing to help you out! I hope you beauts try some of these products for yourself and if you do let me know what you think!
Direct Message: “@cather1neann3“
I hope you all have a wonderful rest of your week! Enjoy your Wednesday !
Good Morning beautiful souls and welcome back to my channel, I am so so happy to have you here with me, especially on a Friday! I am so excited that it is finally the weekend, thank goodness man! It has been an absolute week let me tell you! Now it’s time to enjoy the weekend and the plans that arfe ahead! I have some fun plans ahead that I can not wait for! But today, I am so excited to share a collaboration that I have been working on for you beauts! I have been given the wonderful opportunity to review this gorgeous subscription box for the Winter from “Canadian Beauty Box”. This company fits me so perfectly, as they feature beauty, fashion and lifestyle products in their boxes. As you beauts know, I am a passionate beauty, fashion and lifestyle blogger so this is golden! I honestly can not hide my excitement in this blog post! I am super stoked to share more about this company with you guys, and the goodies featured in this “winter” box! Shall we get started?!
I absolutely LOVE supporting local companies, especially when they are Canadian! Go Canada Go! I am excited this company is from Oakville Ontario, so that is pretty neat! How this company and subscription works is when you enter on the website, you have two payment options to choose from. You can choose to have one season subscription which retails for $69.95, or you can choose the one annual subscription which retails for $249.95. Once you have chosen, you are all set to go! Simply wait for your box to arrive! It’s that simple! Did I mention it’s free Canadian shipping? YUPP.Now what’s in this winter box you may be wondering…?
The product that I want to share with you beauts first is this moisturizing body bar. This bar is absolutely heavenly and feels amazing on your skin. Especially since the winter weather is approaching and the cold weather can create such dry skin. I love putting aside some self care time, and apply this on my body. These bars are made from unrefined food-grade cocoa butter and fair-trade, organic, refined shea butter. These bars are solid at room temperature but then honestly melt when they come into contact with skin. I know what you beauts may be thinking…does this product feel greasy on your skin? Absolutely not and that is what I adore about this! This “NYLA” moisturizing bar retails for $13.00.
The next goody that I am going to be talking about are these super adorable “Canadian Beauty” cabin socks that are the cutest when it comes to the winter season (these are shown up on the first picture). I don’t know about you beauts, but I love socks that are this style, especially when they keep your feet toasty warm as well! Can you say yes please? These socks are created by “K8 Creative Designs”.They give off such a cozy vibe and retail for $15.00.
The third product that I have been absolutely loving in the winter box is this “Nat’s Organic Lab Matcha Lip Balm”. I don’t know about you beauts, but I love a really good moisturizing lip balm in these harsh winter months. My lips are always insanely dry, and nobody has time for them cracked dry lips....am I right? I love the smell and feeling of this balm, it is super gentle. This product is made with 100% Japanese Matcha and other ingredients that will help your lips out immensely! When I say that I carry this product in my purse at ALL times… that is an understatement! Hands down. This product retails for $9.50.
“Hello weekend, I am glad you are here!”
For all you beauty and makeup lovers out there, this one is for YOU! I absolutely adore my makeup and can not get enough of lip products in general. I find adding some sort of lipstick to your makeup routine just enhances your look 100%! I am all for a great red lip with the holidays fast approaching. I think this looks so classy, especially with all the different festivities you may have planned! I am hooked you guys on this “Tin Feather Cosmetics Velvet Lipstick in the shade, “Viola”. GUYS….. GUYS…. can we just take two seconds to address how stunning this colour is! It is a beautiful soft raspberry red shade. This lipstick is super moisturizing and will not feel like your lips are drying out. I have tried numerous red lipsticks in the past but they have always dried out my lips making them look awful after a few hours! Not with this little guy. I can’t get over how flawless my lips look and how beautiful the packaging is as well! This is a must HAVE. This is a full coverage product and retails for $20.00.
I can’t get enough of these super adorable “NewBorn Feathers 8mm Earrings”. Honestly, these danty sparkly earrings are the absolute cutest! You beauts know I am all about my jewlery and fashion pieces always. These earrings can be paired with literally any outfit look that you had in mind! That is what I adore about these! This product retails for $29.00.
“Let’s support one another!”
The next two products that I want to share with you guys are the “Clean Organics Rose Chamomile Facial Toner”, and the “Design Me Hair, Fab Me”. I love both of these products so much! The toner is so refreshing, and it is super calming! I use this product after cleansing my face and before moisturizing my facial skin. This product is very therapeutic and can be used for the daytime or night time. This can also be used under your makeup or even on top for a refresher. This product retails for $22.00.
The other product is amazing for your hair! The Fab Me treatment has 18 benefits included in it which is amazing! This amazing product helps with colour fade protection, split end smoother, breakage prevention, free radical and heat damage protection, a revitalizer for hair’s natural protective layer, helps with detangling, static reduction and frizz control just to name a few! Holy heck that is unreal, sign me up for all of that! I love this product a ton and have been using it everyday nonstop! This one retails for $24.50.
Last but not least, is this “LIp Service Beauty You GROW GIRL LASH ELIXIR”. This product is unreal for strengthening and lengthening your lashes with this natural and vegan mixture made up of castor oil, vitamin E and fractionated coconut oil. You can even use this product on your eyebrows as well which is amazing! This product works best when applied at night time as there is oil within it. This wonderful product retails for $25.00.
So my gorgeous souls, this is the end of the review! I hope you all enjoyed hearing about the lovely local beauty, fashion and lifestyle products located in this winter subscription box! I want to personally thank the Canadian Beauty Box for allowing me to collaborate with you guys, you all are amazing and have such gorgeous products located in your boxes!

Good morning beauts! Welcome to my channel if you are new, I am so happy you stopped by to check out my page! I hope everyone is having a great start to their week so far & I hope you have a bunch of goals set out that you wish to accomplish this week! As you beauts know the holidays are fast approaching and Christmas is literally around the corner!From that being said, I have been on the hunt for beautiful gifts or even stocking stuffers to share with you guys! At this time of the year, I honestly love browsing online and checking out everyone’s gift guide for 2019, do you beauts do the same thing? This year, I decided to take part in this & share some beautiful finds in relation to beauty, lifestyle and fashion! Are you ready to hear my latest find? I am super stoked because it is a local Canadian company which I absolutely adore! I love supporting small businesses, especially Canadian ones!
It’s honestly no secret and no surprise that I absolutely adore scrunchies and hair accessories in general. Something about getting dolled up with your makeup, a cute outfit and then adding an adorable scrunchie either on your wrist or hair makes the outfit I think! I am super stoked and excited to state that I have collaborated with a gorgeous company called, “Q & Lu”! This company is from Woodstock Ontario. What I absolutely adore about this company was how stunning their Instagram page! It is such an eye catcher & their scrunchies are the absolute cutest ever!
The scrunchies that I received in the package were a combination of 4 different stunning Christmas ones! The first one is a gorgeous red plaid scrunchie and come on guys… you need to have plaid for the holiday season of course!
“Never a bad hair day with a Scrunchie!”
The second one is a subtle off white colour that looks super cute with so many different outfits! What I adore about these scrunchies is that they are so puffy and big, they aren’t flat like normal scrunchies! They are what I like to call, “extreme volume Scrunchies” and that my dears, is my absolute favourite.
The other two are beautiful as well! One is a black one which I mean…. you can never have enough black scrunchies, am I right? And the other is this gorgeous silver design that is stunning! It is honestly so hard to choose which one is my favourite but I do have a soft spot for the plaid that’s for sure!
“Scrunchies are a girl’s best friend”
What I absolutely adore about Q & Lu is how down to earth the owner is! Her name is Jannyssa and she just started her business 2 months ago. I am so proud of her and her cute little company! She is truly doing such an amazing job so far, and she just started! Way to go girlie, you truly are going places! She is so friendly to speak to as well, and I also found out that she is a twin too! How cool is that?! Twins for the win! I personally want to thank Jannyssa for allowing me to collaborate with her and her company! You are amazing, and I truly wish you nothing but the best in your future endeavors!
Be sure to check out her stunning Instagram page at “@q_andlu”,or simply send her a direct message if you are interested in a custom order! I hope everyone has a beautiful day filled with endless amounts of scrunchies!
Good morning beautiful souls! I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend either filled with relaxation or some fun filled plans! My plans unfortunately had to be postponed this Saturday, wasn’t feeling the absolute greatest sadly...tis the season! I am not really a huge fan of the cold! It involves loads of sicknesses and being chilly all the time! Makes me just want to hibernate….anyone with me!?
“…let’s stay cozy this winter!”
Although, something that does help me get through the cold season is cute outdoor attire, am I right? I am super excited to share this Canadian Company with you beauts! This company is from Vancouver, British Columbia and they are called, “Gingersnap’s Crochet”. This company provides handmade stylish crochet goods…. and let me just say talented this business is! They provide stunning toques from sizes 3 months to adults (Perfect for styling your kiddos in!)
I don’t know about you guys but I adore hats for the winter season! I think hats look super stylish and they are just so cozy! What I absolutely adore about these toques is that they come in different beautiful colours and you can take off the pompom if you wish for some! The colours look incredibly cozy! I received my toque in the shade, “Marble” which can be paired with so many outfits/outerwear apparel. These toques retail in store, depending on size, for around $48.13.
The second item that I can not get enough of are these adorable cozies for your hot drinks! I am a huge lover of anything related to hearts so this had me at first sight! I received my cozy design with a huge white heart in the middle and a grey background. What I love about these and the toques is that there are so many stunning colours to choose from as well! There is another design for the cozies too which is a ton of small hearts all over it… just as adorable as this one! These retail for $13.75 in store. The cozies are super cute to bring to work when grabbing your Starbucks or your timmies! I love anything related to fashion, including my hot drinks! Are you the same!?
“…it’s cuddle weather!”

Happy Monday my sweets! It’s Monday and it’s the start to a fresh new week! It’s time to set some goals for yourself & stay motivated! I know Mondays can be a buzzkill for a lot of people, but it doesn’t have to be if you create a good mindset! Remember, if you are determined to have a good day and try your best to stay positive, you will have a good day! Trying to stay clear of negative thoughts will help you out a ton! Creating a more positive environment will help you feel more energized and optimistic.
Speaking of being more optimistic and creating positive vibes, I recently collaborated with such an upbeat and inspirational company called, “The Sankalpa Project”. This company focuses on yoga and meditation products! I can not begin to express how much of a beautiful company this is and what they have to offer! To start off, they are a Canadian Company from Mississauga Ontario, which is amazing! I absolutely love supporting Canadian Local companies!
About the Company
The Sankalpa Project is a company based on inspiration and creation. They base their products on the concepts of mindfulness, holistic lifestyles and being grounded which I absolutely adore! The company uses a lot of eco-friendly materials and is built on their own trifold Sankalpa vow which is to celebrate the whole self , create wellness and to have a positive impact on the environment. I am all for these values of their company and really love the bases and meaning behind their name as well (San- born from the heart and Kalpa-over time). One thing that stood out to me about this beautiful company is that a portion of their annual sales is donated to a non-profit organization. This year, the company is supporting “Charity Water”, and for every 10 products sold, a tree is planted. I can not emphasize how amazing this is, especially when it comes to the environment and helping out. The Sankalpa Project strongly believes in supporting women which is great, and their sewed items are actually made by local women in the community. Their community vision also extends to free yoga classes as well as free yoga workshops which is incredible! The company strongly believes in supporting the environment and helping to reduce as much waste as possible. What I really love about this company is that each product is made with an ambulance of wholeheartedness and love.
About the Products
I am so blessed & fortunate to share that I am a Brand Ambassador for this amazing company! I can not express how whole hearted and accepting this company is, and I could not be more proud to become apart of this project! I received such a beautiful package in the mail and it honestly brought tears to my eyes when I read the letter that came with it. I am so honoured and fortunate to have been given this opportunity that I am about to share with you beauts! I received a stunning bracelet in my package that believe it or not…. was inspired by me and my Instagram feed! I could not believe it! This bracelet is actually on the company’s website right now and is labelled the “much love” bracelet. I can not get over this, I am beyond grateful and so thankful! The warm colours of the bracelet are inspired by my feed! This bracelet is inspired by the need for love & speaking with love. As you beauts know, this has always been my saying for as long as I can remember, and I can not express how special this is! There are two gemstones that are featured on this bracelet which are Aquamarine and Tiger Eye. Aquamarine is a Stone that is calming, soothing, inspires trust and letting go. The stone “Tiger Eye” is a Stone of protection which helps focus the mind and helps promote mental clarity. The bracelet is absolutely stunning and I can’t get over how gorgeous the shades are! This bracelet retails in store for $24.00.
“…having the right mindset & attitude can literally change your life”
The next product that I received in my beautiful package was this super stretchy cute headband! This is the “Magenta Cotton Headband”, which is super comfortable yet stylish at the same time! This is perfect when doing yoga/meditating or even just going out & about! This looks gorgeous with your hair up or down too! I love how there is a knot on the headband which you can move to the front or the back! There are also so many different colours to choose from which is great! This product retails for $16.00 on the website!
Beauts….. I am super excited about the next two products I am going to show you guys! You guys know that I love anything that has adorable sayings or quotes. I think reading decorations with a cute quote on them can brighten your mood in two seconds, am I right?! I have lots of cute sayings located around my room and even in my house for that matter! Did I mention they are on all my coffee mugs as well? Being surrounded by so much positivity really makes for a great day and creates such a positive mindset! I received these adorable coasters/ornaments that are so stinking cute! These retail for $4.99 and come in so many different designs and sayings.
“Rinse, Receive & Rediscover…”

I want to personally thank “The Sankalpa Project” for allowing me to become a Brand Ambassador as well as allowing me to collaborate with them! You guys are absolutely amazing!

Hey there beauts! Happy Saturday! I am so glad that it is finally the weekend thank god. How was everyone’s week been? Have any big plans for the weekend? I am heading to a pumpkin patch this weekend with the boyfriend and I can not wait to take some cute fall pictures! Have to take pictures or it didn’t happen right? (let’s be real now). I am also going to enjoy myself and put my feet up while I have my glass of veno, I deserve it and you deserve to relax as well!
So over the past couple of months, I have been getting some new followers which is absolutely unreal! Thank you so much for stopping by and taking the time to get to know me! If there’s two things you should know about me it’s that I adore my glass of wine on the weekend , and that I love love LOVE my jewelry. I think that is why I absolutely adore being a girl is that you get to doll yourself up, ,explore fashion and try spice up your wardrobe! These are the mad highlights that make me so incredibly happy you don’t even know! I am talking about glitter galore, anything pink, a million bags, you get the picture! When I am getting ready in the morning, I love finishing off my entire look with some jewelry pieces such as rings, bracelets and of course earrings. I use to always stick to the standard stud earrings back in the day, I was so afraid to experiment and try out new styles. I was afraid to get that kind of attention. Fast forward years later and I am so glad I pushed passed that mindset and decided to step out and explore the fashion world. There are so many adorable styles of earrings! I can not go a day without wearing earrings, in fact, if I step foot out of the door and forgot some, I run back in to stick a pair in (I am a tad bit ridiculous!). Beauts, I am beyond stoked and excited to share with you guys a collaboration that I have been so fortunate to be able to be apart of! I can not express how absolutely stunning this company is. I recently collaborated with a company called, “Aqua dreams Boutique”, who specializes in on-trend handmade jewelry. These pieces are absolutely GORGEOUS and I can not emphasize that enough oh my! This little boutique is from North Carolina, United States.
Amanda Lee is the owner of “Aqua dreams Boutique”, and is so down to earth to connect with! She is extremely friendly, and is more than happy to help you out and help you find what you are looking for! Her pieces are incredibly stunning, and you can tell you puts a ton of work into her products when it comes to the style and design. On her website she offers unique styles in earrings as well as necklaces. From animal prints, glitter, flower, and Halloween styles, they are BEAUTIFUL.
I was so fortunate and blessed to receive 5 pairs of beautiful earrings to show for you beauts! The earrings come in two different styles , either “Boho fan”, or “Feather” shaped. Guys, when I mean every single pair of earrings were adorable on the site, I mean EVERY SINGLE PAIR. I was absolutely blown away at how stylish and chic these earrings were, and I fell in love with every single one on her website. She truly has an eye for fashion and a beautiful taste in style!
The first pair of earrings that I received were the “Glitter Feather Earrings” in the shade Porcelain. These earrings are breathtaking and the colour is just flawless. What I love about these earrings is that they are such a great and subtle colour that goes well with so many different outfits! The glitter is to die for, and the size is perfect! These ones are in a size medium, but the earrings can come in three different sizes; small, medium and large. What I also love about these earrings is that they are such a statement piece. They are super flattering and so shimmery! Perfect for so many occasions. The earrings also are hypoallergenic which is great, so irritation does not occur!
These earrings come in a whole bunch of different colours that you have the option to choose from! These ones retail in store for $28.56, and are super lightweight!
“…life isn’t perfect, but your outfit can be!”
The second pair of earrings that I received were the, “Silver Leopard Earrings”. As you beauts know I absolutely love my animal prints, especially when it comes to leopard print! I am super stoked about these ones, they are so cute! Again, such a statement piece which I love! You can pair these earrings with so many different outfits. These ones come in different colours and animal prints as well such as alligator skin and snakeskin too! Colours vary from gold, pink, black, brown,champagne, and even coral! These ones retail in store for $28.56 and are in the size medium.
“sparkle every day”
The third pair of earrings that I want to show you beauts are breathtaking as well. Amanda Lee thought of so many creative and unique pieces, I have no words for these goodies! These ones are called, “Burgundy Boho Fan Earrings”, and I just adore this colour! These are perfect for the fall time and the glitter on them is just beautiful! As you can see the Boho Fan style are just as elegant and classy as the Feather style ones. Why not add a bit of both into your fashion routine?! These ones retail for $27.17. You can choose the glitter burgundy style or just burgundy in general if you are not feeling the glitter! For me personally, the more glitter the better!
The fourth pair of earrings that I received from “Aqua Dreams Boutique” are these flawless, “Glitter Feather Earrings”, in the shade Neon Coral. I am in love with anything that is a coral colour. It is such a bold and fun colour that you can play around with! I again love the shimmer, anything shimmery I am so down for! I love adding these earrings to a more subtle outfit as they truly make your outfit “pop” and standout! These one are probably one of my absolute favorites for sure! Again, so many beautiful glittery colour to choose from! These ones retail in store for $28.53 and are in a size medium. Grab yours today!
The final and last pair of earrings that I cannot wait to show you beauts are these adorable fall coloured ones! These ones are from the Feather Earrings collection and are in the shade Burnt Orange (so stunning!). I love subtle and cozy colours like this, this literally screams fall to me, and makes me want to jump in a great big pile of leaves! (just kidding, maybe just go grab that pumpkin spice latte from Starbucks instead! haha). I love the burnt orange colour! You can have so much fun styling these earrings with so many different kinds of outfits! If you adore the fall, these are a MUST HAVE in your fall wardrobe! These ones are actually in a size large but are not too big at all whatsoever! These ones retail on her website for $23.09. Ps… did I mention that all of these products are handmade? YUPP! Just wanted to throw that in there for ya!
I really hope you beauts enjoyed this little try on session blog! I honestly had so much fun conducting this post for you guys, and I can not express how in love I am with these earrings! I want to personally give a HUGE thank you to Amanda Lee and her amazing company, “Aqua Dreams Boutique” for allowing me to collaborate with you! It was an absolute pleasure to be apart of this, I am so grateful! I have received numerous compliments on these pieces, and have been wearing them with different outfits nonstop all week! Be sure to come and check out her Instagram page at, “@aquadreamsboutique” and her Etsy shop as well! All of her information is located in her Instagram bio!
So I am curious! Are you beauts more of a necklace type of gal, or are you all about the earrings? Personally I love both don’t get me wrong but I will always be a die hard earrings lover all the way! If you guys do end up purchasing some pieces from her shop let me know what you buy! Also to top everything off, I am providing you beauts with an amazing discount code! THAT’S RIGHT! Simply punch in “Alyssa20” at checkout for 20% off your order! What are you waiting for!? Grab your beautiful pieces today!
Enjoy the rest of your weekend, have fun in the leaves and I am going to go pick out some pumpkins! Go enjoy that beautiful fall weather!
Hey there Beauts! Happy Thursday! You know what that means right? It’s almost Friday, you made it through the week! You got this guys! I am so proud of you, I hope your week is flying by for you, and you got some great plans for the weekend! Anybody doing anything fun? For me I think I am going to take it easy, relax, burn my fall candle, and do some blogging…. get into my zone!
Put your hand up if you are absolutely adoring the fall weather! Is anyone a hardcore fall lover like myself? I’m talking about pumpkin spice latte overload, big over sized sweaters, those plaid scarves, and cute fall pictures that you have to convince your boyfriend to take of you! Am I right? Speaking of the fall time, these means fall collaborations! I have some amazing fall collaborations coming your way but this one you guys I am super stoked to discuss and share with you! I recently reached out to an amazing Canadian company called, “Arrow It Forward”, and they specialize in home fragrances (can you say yummmm?!) If you guys know me well enough you know that I can never have enough pumpkin smelling things in my room or fall scents for that matter! The more the merrier! I was thrilled when Emily Prout, owner of Arrow It Forward, got back to me and wanted to collab together!
Let’s meet the Maker!
Emily Prout is the proud owner of the Canadian brand “Arrow It Forward”, as she makes all of her products right from her home, which might I add is in Ontario (proud supporter of Canadian brands, you go girl!). She lives with her husband and her two children who work together in this family business. Emily loves to show off her creative side in the work she does and trust me…. does she do a heck of a good job at that! She states that she pushed herself out of her comfort zone which I absolutely adore and admire! She makes strong connections with her audience and following and loves to really connect with the ways she describes each of her products. BEAUTS… just wait until you hear the titles and sayings that go along with each product, they are absolutely AMAZING… I was hooked! If the scents were not enough for you to be obsessed with the sayings on the products will grab your attention!
About the Products!
On the website “Arrow It Forward”, there are so many amazing and stunning products to take a peek at! If you are looking for soy candles, soy wax melts, reusable car air fresheners ( yes I did just say that!!), or even linen and room sprays you are in the right place! Sometimes, I find that certain fragrance brands are lacking really strong scents! I mean guys, if I grab an autumn breeze candle I want to literally feel like I’m walking for a beautiful fall path with crispy leaves crunching under my boots & the crisp air in my face. I can absolutely assure you guys you will not be disappointed in the scents of these products, hands down! The fragrances smell so amazing I can’t even deal! Shall we get into some of the products?
“SO BASIC Reusable Car Air Freshener”- First off, I never thought a car air freshener could look cute but this obviously proves me wrong! I am adoring the colours that were implemented into these! I don’t know about you guys but I like my car to look cute, yes I am that basic girl, so this I am absolutely digging! The car air fresheners come pre-scented which is amazing, and if you need the scent to be touched up, simply spray the linen/room spray on it which I will mention for you below! This retails on her website for $7.50!
“SALTY AF Bath Soak”– This magnesium chloride bath soak is unreal! This product is scented with totally validating ADULTING IS HARD blend, and might I add the scent is to die for. When I opened up this package, the scent just lifted into the air! I absolutely adore the name of this product, I think that is just the cutest ever. Simply pour entire contents under running water and “let some of your saltiness go down the drain!”. This product however is not intended for children but hey…. adults need to de-stress whenever we get the chance to! There is also another bath soak as well if you want to try that one out too which is called “MOM’S SALTY”…. love it! This product retails on her website for only $6.00!
“HYGGE Hand Poured Wax Melts- I have been recently getting into soy wax melts, and I am so glad I have been! I totally have been missing out! I love how easy these are to use, and the scent this product gives off is amazing! There are so many different ones to choose from and try out, go take a peek for yourself!

So now that you guys have seen a sneak peek at some of the goodies located on the website I wanted to share a neat fact about the company and what it was named after! The name “Arrow It Forward”, came from two concepts! First, the concept of pay it forward, and secondly, a quote which relates to the arrow. What caught my attention was the meaning behind the arrow which states, “ an arrow can only be shot by pulling it backward. When life is dragging you back with difficulties, it means it’s going to launch you into something great. So just focus and keep aiming”. I absolutely adore this meaning behind the arrow and that is actually why I have an arrow tattooed on my spine believe it or not! I am a firm believer of this and absolutely adore the reason behind this company name! Way to go Emily! I want to personally thank Emily Prout for allowing me to collaborate with her amazing company “Arrow It Forward”!
