One of the perks of being a influencer is trying out new products especially when the product is already something you love and are using. I was so excited when Dino wanted to work together because my oldest has been using the Diono’s Monterey XT Expandable High Back Booster Seat  for over a year now and loves it so when they reached out I knew this partnership would be a authentic and perfect fit. Recently my son turned 4 which in Ontario means he can now move to a booster seat as he meats all the requirements and so naturally he has been asking when he can get a “big boy” car seat like his sister. Well you can watch the little video below of the day he received his.

There are really so many reason I love this booster seat. First of all I love the look it is sleek looking and I am able to fit all three of my car seats across the back of my SUV. The material is a great fabric with rich colour and easy to wipe off. This booster seat and lay flat for storage and you can also remove the high back to make it into a backless booster once your little one no longer needs the added support. This booster seat fits children 18 – 54 kg (40 lb to 120 lb) and 97 – 160 cm (38″ to 63″) in height. With one hand you can adjust the headrest to 11 different positions. Another amazing feature is the built in  cup/snack holders that is retractable and can fold out of the way when not needed. The booster also has an angled seat bottom which prevents submarining and a longer seat bottom which give the little person proper leg support. I not only have one but two very happy little ones who love to ride in their Diono Monterey XT Expandable High Back Booster Seat so I genuinely  have no complaints and can’t suggest enough this seat if you are in the market for a booster seat.

One thing you may not have know if your like me is that Diono offers more than just car seats. They actually have some really great accessories as well and I have been lucky enough to be able to try some of them out. One of the products I have tried and now love and think every person with forward facing little people absolty NEEDS is the stuff ‘n scuff mat! This matt is saving the back of my seats and looks amazing while doing so! The mat has a strap that goes around the headrest of the seat in front and has securing clips to go under the bottom of the seat. It even has little pocket that the top to stick things in and um best part it under $10! Seariously with all the wet weather we’ve had and muddy shoes and boots my seats are perfectly protected thanks to my stuff ‘n scuff matt which I can easy wipe off as well.

The other great accessory I have been using and loving from Diono is their warm ‘n go deluxe bottle warmer. We are a busy family on the go often and there is nothing worse than being stuck in traffic or in the car somewhere and baby needs to eat and I have a cold bottle and no way to warm it. This bottle warmer is made with stretch neoprene and a unique heating element design.  The stretchy neoprene allows for this warmer to fit any shape bottle – even tapered ones. The warmer fits cup holders or  it can hang from the dashboard.  To heat up your bottle simply plug the warmer into any 12V socket. Features include a power indicator light and a thermal fuse to prevent overheating. The warm ‘n go works up to 50% faster than other brands!

A HUGE thank you Diono for partnering with us we love the accessories and booster seat! If you would like to see some of the other products Diono offers feel free to check out their site here!

  • It finally feels like fall around here - well actually this morning felt like winter and as pretty as all the fall colors are I’m kinda already excited for Christmas- it could be since it’s the most wonderful time of the year or because the stores are bringing out their holiday stuff already - so who puts their tree up in the beginning of November? 🙋🏼‍♀️ I feel like I should clarify I love dressing for the fall I don’t enjoy winter weather for dressing and all the freezing temps I’m excited for the holiday festivities and decorating!
  • You my girl are going to do great things - you already are! This girl never ceases to amaze me and make me proud to be her mama! Her teacher asked to speak to us yesterday - we had no idea why -  her teacher started to share with us  about how kind Gray is and how proud she is of Gray. There is a student in their class that has special needs and Gray has taken such good care of of this little boy since the beginning of the year - she plays with him at recess and make sure he is always included. Her teacher was so impressed by how kind and loving Gray is and of course I wasn’t surprised but The tears did fall as I looked at my girl beaming with  pride. You see this sweet girl has an ability to see people for who they are on the inside. She has been talking about this little boy for the past month and a half when she shares about her day and I had no idea he had special needs or that he was any different than she was cause she doesn’t see him that way she sees him as an equal. How different this world would be if we all treated each other as equal and shared love and kindness with each other!
  • Mirror, mirror on the wall...
It doesn’t matter if I’m short or tall...
If I have skinny legs or my hips are wide...
It only matters who I am inside...
Blue eyes, brown eyes, black or green...
What makes me most beautiful can not be seen...
When you look at me, don’t judge me by my parts...
The most beautiful about me is my heart  #myhomesense
  • Happy Thanksgiving! I hope however you’ve celebrated whether today or this weekend you spent it verbalizing to the ones you love how thankful you are for them! It would be silly of me to try and tag the ones I’m thankful for but I truly feel blessed and I hope those of you know who you are!
  • Fear: feeling induced by perceived danger, a response to a specific stimulus occurring in the present, or in anticipation or expectation of a future. Fear of heartbreak? Fear of the diagnosis? Fear of abandonment? Fear of judgment? Fear of peoples perception of you? Fear of your bank account number? Fear is everywhere and I for one struggle with it! I find music to be a powerful tool in my life and these lyrics have been repeatedly playing over in my head this past week- I wake up singing them I sing them all day long and yet they aren’t just lyrics they are a declaration of truth that I am holding onto “There is no fear and no shame
Your love won't rise above
Every failure sealed within Your grave
For love has overcome”
  • Canadian Thanksgiving is days away and as much as this dreary rain would love to drag me down I can’t help but feel so grateful for so many things in my life! I have started keeping a running list of things throughout my day that I am thankful for like not just the obvious big things but the little ones too like a hot cup of coffee and a warm fuzzy blanket - do you know what that does for my thought process when I focus on all I do have to be thankful for!! What are you thankful for today?
