Luxurious Bath & Relaxation Inc. – Launch Party March 19th

Come join Luxurious Bath & Relaxation Inc. as well as some other local vendors on Sunday, March 19th from 2 pm – 6 pm for the launch of LB&R’s new line of natural and vegan skin care products, bath essentials, and candles. There will also be a photographer, plenty of desserts, a florist, gorgeous decor, calligraphy, and many other indulgences to keep you going all afternoon long.

Luxurious Bath & Relaxation Inc. is a local company based out of Surrey, BC, owned and operated by a mother-daughter duo. Both Harleen and her mother pride themselves on creating products that are made from natural and vegan ingredients, but also have a luxurious feel. (*all products are baby/kid friendly as well)

If it wasn’t for Harleen making these products for herself and therefore personally seeing the benefits of using natural based ingredients (where she knew of every single things going in and onto her body) LB&R would not have been born. Living a very busy lifestyle, as most do in Vancouver, she wanted to share these benefits with others. With a lot of research done via Facebook to see what her demographic would be interested in, she soon realized that other’s wanted the same things, they just didn’t have the time to do the research and would overlook the types of products they use daily (thinking it didn’t matter in the long run). Jump start to today – here you have Luxurious Bath & Relaxation Inc.

Their mission is simple: for their clients to feel pampered, and completely spoiled, every time they use the products!

It’s extremely common that people don’t make it a priority to care for themselves and turn to other methods of convenience – simply because it’s easy and available. A busy lifestyle is no excuse to forget our number one priority: making sure we take care of ourselves. This is why Harleen wanted to create and introduce products that were all natural, GMO free, and sustainable. It was vital for her to create products that were going to educate customers about the importance and value of using goods that are natural based.

In addition to being natural and vegan, LB&R’s products also have great therapeutic value; they create a variety of products and combination of scents to meet customers needs. Products range from those which will make you feel rejuvenated and help you wake up first thing in the morning, to products that will help you fight a cold, soothe skin irritation, or just simply help you sleep at night. The skin is the largest organ, but is one we often overlook. At Luxurious Bath & Relaxation Inc., they work with clients to meet their needs and make luxurious skin a priority.

Personal Product Review:

I had the pleasure of meeting Harleen the other weekend, and she was so gracious to drop off a few product samples for me to try. Below you’ll find a description on each item and a brief review of how I used and liked them. (All opinions expressed are my own).

Lavender Body Soap Bar: which is infused and made with organic dried lavender flowers.
This Bar smelt amazing – and I loved that it made my skin feeling so soft after using it, plus Lavender is great for the skin – I was even comfortable using it on my son during bath time.

Rose Votive Candle: 100% Soy Based Candle
This was great to have lit during my bath – I was able to relax (for a bit before dealing with my teething son) and the aroma was so nice and soothing. Not overpowering like some can be.

Renew Bath Soak: coconut and oat infused
I was told to add 3 Tbsp. to my son’s bath or 1/4 cup into my full bath – which is what I ended up doing. I even was recommended to use it as a face and body scrub – so why not?! It felt nice on my skin, I didn’t try it on my face though. I have extremely sensitive skin and I didn’t want to risk it. I am sure it would be fine, but I was satisfied with how I felt after my bath.

Citrus Bath Bomb: infused with lemongrass, lemon, and sweet orange essential oils and dried organic orange peel.
This one you simply just drop (whole) into a full bath. It also can act as a shower bomb to infuse your shower with the citrus scent. I haven’t be able to use this yet – but believe me I can’t wait!

My Semi-Sweet Valentine

If you’re looking for some sappy, mushy post about how much I love Valentines Day, well you’re reading the wrong post…

Some may call me cynical, others may use the word pessimist. I on the other hand like to use the word “realistic”. To me Valentine’s was never something super special or romantic (however I could be a tad biased since I’m single… and slightly bitter). Regardless this Hallmark holiday puts too much pressure on people to live up to unrealistic expectations of love and how one should show that love.

Growing up Valentine’s Day wasn’t something that was overly celebrated in my household – besides giving out cards in class and my mom leaving a special treat on my chair to find when I sat down for dinner, that was the extent of it. I’ve had relationships where I’ve gotten roses and love letters, one year I was dumped, and the rest are a vague memory that I choose not to fixate on.

However, with the birth of my son I knew I was going to have to set some better examples and make sure this day was a special reminder of the love I have for him – the number one guy in my life! Don’t worry, I still plan on expressing and showing him that love all the other 364 days of the year.

Special thanks to everyone who came together to collaborate on this shoot (especially it being my first one)!

All About That Mom-Hustle!

Back in late 2016 I was graciously asked and invited to be part of my very first ‘blogger’ photo shoot with another mama and baby duo. The whole theme was around ‘Moms who Hustle’, and being a single mom who works from home, I could definitely relate with the concept behind this shoot.

I will admit I was extremely nervous arriving for hair and makeup the day of. For one, I am far from a model, I have no idea what to do when you say pose (Amber did an amazing job trying to get me to loosen up), and I’m bringing my unpredictable baby (who was just around a year at the time). Sounds like the perfect combination right?

Sure enough the day went a lot better then I had imagined. Not to mention there were a few hiccups and uncooperative moments – but you just go with it, or better yet hand your baby off to the makeup artist – Shayla!

Looking back on this shoot I’ve had a chance to really reflect on what it truly means to hustle. Being a stay at home, single, working parent my days are all over the place. I try and keep my days strictly to Ry and focusing on him and being the best mom I can be. Not to mention how hard it is to type or answer an email when your child is constantly grabbing at the screen! Once Ry is down for the night I am usually able to get some work done. I will admit some nights I don’t get much accomplished. Raising a very active toddler is no easy task and once he’s asleep, sorry, sometimes this mom wants to get some shut eye as well.

For all the moms who work full-time, raise a family, and maintain an active blog – my hats off to you! I’m still trying to find that balance. None the less I am proud to be a hustling mom!
