One Kid Road Coat - the Patented Crash Tested MUST HAVE Coat!

GIVEAWAY LINK: https://manage.kmail-lists.com/subscriptions/subscribe?a=K9Mubq&g=QjAHyj

As a parent, safety always comes before practicality…. so to be honest, I remember dreading winter last year… until I discovered the One Kid® Road Coat. For anyone living with kids in winter weather, you know what a pain it is to run to the car with a jacket, take it off before putting them in their car seat, putting it back on before you go out side again. It’s what we need to do to keep our kids safe, and until I discovered the One Kid® Road Coat, I thought that was the only option! One Kid®  has a patented design that is safe to wear while in a car seat! Yes… you read that correctly! You can even watch videos of a crash test on their website to see how they work. No more taking off their jackets (or snowsuit onesies) before putting them in the car!

One Kid®’s coats and snowsuits are crash tested and will keep your little ones warm in -25 Fahrenheit/-30 Celsius weather! We tried out the Road Coat® Down, which also comes in a vegan version, and a 1 piece snow suit version, and their Snow Pants which are soft, easily pulled on and pack-able! Despite being very warm, they are super light weight and they can be easily folded into a carrying pouch that's included, which makes travelling with them a cinch!

The One Kid® Road Coat® is designed in such a way that you can zip back the puffy outer layer when your little one is in the car seat, allowing the car seat strap to lie closer to your child’s body. There’s also a non slip surface on the front which prevents the car seat's harness straps from slipping, and it even comes with a red marker to help you identify where the chest clip should sit!

The One Kid® Road Coat® and matching Snow Pants were a no brainer last year and remain one of our fave discoveries from last year.

Comfy Sweater Weather

Winter in Canada means it's time to bust out the comfy sweaters and enjoy more evenings at home in front of the TV or fire place. My outfit, from Pink Blush is perfect whether I'm staying in or going out! The material is so soft, and I love the added details on the sleeves! It can easily transition from maternity wear to regular wear so there is no need to ever replace this beauty :)

Lounging in Style!

The cold wintery Canadian weather has arrived - which means it's hibernating season for some of us (me!!). What better way to stay fashionable and comfy all day long than with PinkBlush? I'm wearing their Navy Blue Striped Cuffed Pajama Pants, and like all their clothes, they can be transitioned from maternity wear to regular wear! Have a look at their website to see the rest of their adorable cozy lounge pants and spend your winter months looking and feeling amazing! :). Click here to visit PinkBlush.

Baby Essentials from Copper Pearl

Copper Pearl, created by 2 mamas in 2015, has all of the baby accessories that you've been dreaming about. Made with gorgeous material and beautiful patterns, their products are essentials that moms need.

This month I tried out some of their products, and I can't rave enough about them! Zane is at the drooling age (yay... said no mom ever), so I was constantly changing his wet shirts, until I started using the Baby Bandana Bibs from Copper Pearl! Copper Pearl bibs are big, are made with a double layer of material (the underside is SUPER absorbent) and come in the nicest patterns so you can find one to match any outfit! We tried out the Wild Collection and their Scout Collection. You can see in the picture above the 2 collections we tried and underneath is their crib sheet that I tried! I absolutely fell in love with the fit and feel of their crib sheets and need more for Zane's nursery! They wash amazingly, fit perfectly over his crib mattress (a pet peeve of mine is sheets that don't fit properly and require effort to put on... who has the time to struggle with sheets!?) and come in the nicest patterns and colors. We tried the Slate Crib Sheet.

Finally, we tried out one of their 5-in-1 Multi-Use Covers. Their covers can be used as a nursing cover, a baby car seat cover, a shopping cart cover, a high chair cover AND an infinity scarf! It's made from a SUPER soft and stretchy fabric so it can easily fit over most carseats and chairs and I love that it can covert and be used so many different ways... because it means less items in my diaper bag! We chose the Canyon Multi-Use Cover :). 

I would love to hear what other products you've tried from Copper Pearl, or if you've tried any of the ones I mentioned! If you're looking for a great holiday gift idea, head over to their website and have a look... you're sure to find something for any special baby in your life. 

 

Cut Out Sleeves and Comfort for the Holidays

Holiday celebrations mean lots of eating... eating... and more eating! So for my outfits, I always look for style and comfort. I'm loving my new Charcoal Cutout Sleeve T Shirt from PinkBlush that has adorable cut outs and a tie on the sleeves! It's long and flowy so it's not too tight around the areas that are bound to need some extra room after my holidays dinners lol. PinkBlush specializes in clothing that can transition from maternity to non-maternity wear so this Tshirt is sure to be a staple in my wardrobe for a while! Head over to their website to see their entire collection of gorgeous formal and casual wear. 

Spoil the Man in Your Life in Time for Travel Season with the American Crew Travel Pack!

I'm always reviewing products for Zane and I, so I thought it was time to include the other love of my life: my husband! Just in time for holiday travelling, this month we tried the American Crew Travel Pack. American Crew is a brand that my husband already loves - he uses the Power Cleanser every day... so I knew he would enjoy testing these products out! If you've never heard of the brand, they specialize in hair care and grooming products for men! The products are available at Chatters, Trade Secrets and Amazon.

The travel pack comes in this nice and super practical black zip up travel case with 2 compartments (I won't have to share mine anymore when we go on vacation YAY!). It comes filled with the American Crew Fiber, Skincare Precision Shave Gel, Daily Shampoo and Heavy Hold Pomade. For starters, although this is a travel pack, the products are not travel size (which I LOVE). I often find that travel sized products don't last more than a few days so I prefer larger products. The Daily Shampoo has a new formulation and smells incredible... it has a masculine smell and leaves behind the most gorgeous scent. The Fiber is a high hold and low shine styling product - perfect for a more casual daytime look. The Heavy Hold Pomade provides a heavy hold with high shine and I was surprised to see that it was clear (I was expecting it to be white!). My husband tried it out and LOVED it because he found that, unlike most of his other pomades, this one didn't leave a white residue in his hair. It also smells DELICIOUS. Finally, the travel pack includes a Precision Shaving Gel which is a non-drying gel that soothes the skin and prevents skin irritation during shaving. My husband has a short beard and doesn't shave so I had my dad try out this one and he approved with two thumbs up :). 

Spoil the man in your life this holiday season with the American Crew Travel Pack! I've also teamed up with them to give away a Travel Pack to one lucky winner! Visit my Instagram page to enter!
