Bébé de Luxe Feature and Give Away! - Imaginary Sails Blog

Bébé de Luxe Is Luxury in a Jar + Giveaway

I never win anything. Okay, that’s not entirely true, I once won a cake in a cake walk when I was five. That’s the only thing I can ever recall winning until one lazy evening I was made aware of a contest by my friend Kat over at The Pampered Baby Blog to win some pretty awesome sounding bath stuff called Bébé.de.Luxe. A couple of days went by and I got a message from Amanda saying I had won a Luxe Jar of the signature Coconut and Oat Milk Bath – this got me sooooo excited!

Part of entering the contest was liking her Facebook page and one quick browse through and I knew I was in for a treat (and I debated internally whether to share this treat with the baby and hubby too ;)  or to just hide it away and use it on the rare occasion I get a solo bath)… The package arrived on the perfect day, it was a dreary afternoon and H had taken a face plant sort of tumble while we were out running errands and I knew it was a bath, snack, nap type of afternoon. It had me at hello, the smell is delicious and I couldn’t believe how great my skin felt coming out of the bath, unshaven legs aside of course.

H doesn’t have any issue with super smooth baby skin but even he felt softer afterwards – and that isn’t even the part that really really matters. As a new Mom (well I’m over a year in, can I get some soft of different status now – not quite veteran but not total newbie?), I am definitely very aware of the kinds of products we use on him and I love the ‘no nasties’ approach Amanda has achieved. I love a product I can trust and use on my little one worry free! Bébé.de.Luxe Coconut & Oat Milk Bath is natural, vegan and free of all toxins, parabens and carcinogens the ‘Nasties’. It is made with 100% certified organic and food-grade ingredients. This is so great because my recent attempts to teach H to blow bubbles in the bath have been fruitless and he usually starts drinking the bath water instead of blowing bubbles which is actually fine, I can rest assured that no harm will come from this product being ingested. Plus I kind of think he just likes the taste.

Here is a little dose of sunshine for you this morning! I absolutely love pineapple, it always puts a smile on my face and when it is blended up in a smoothie I can almost convince myself that I am in Hawaii, they were on for a smokin deal at the grocery store so I went for it.

An added bonus as cold season is upon us, not only is this smoothie packed with Vitamin C, but the wonderful and super healthy Ginger. Ginger is not only known for soothing a sore belly – as in gas and other digestive issues, it is also used as an anti-nauseant (BONUS: it is safe for pregnant women), it also has anti-inflammatory properties and will give your immune system a boost, so get that Ginger in with your greens and Vitamin C!

Cantaloupe Ginger Green Smoothie

Imaginary Sails - Kid Friendly Cantaloupe Ginger Green Smoothie Here is another delicious smoothie for you and yours, it is creamy and thick and so satisfying! I am super extra excited about this one because well, cantaloupe is gross. Yep, it’s not very tasty, and is the reject of fruit cups everywhere. BUT, it has many redeeming qualities that should make you want to eat it so this smoothie is a great way to get it in without really having to taste it. You are welcome!
