A Day Of Beauty With Kaitlyn: Skora Bath Salts

Rustic Maka - Skora Bath Salts

As I’m just finishing up a hectic filming schedule shooting both Heartland out west and Shadowhunters here in Toronto, I have made time when I’m home to take a 30-minute bath soaking in warm water and my favourite bath salts of all time. All natural dead sea salt added to my bath have more benefits than just relaxing and enjoying some “me time.” The minerals found in the bath salts help detoxify your skin, relieve stress and muscle ache, improves mood and helps with insomnia, all while infusing your bathroom with the most amazing scent that revitalizes your mind as well.

For that half hour with the lights off, candles lit, some music and my Skora Bath Salts (Citrus Gardens), I feel like I’m in my very own escape and I love every single minute of it. My favourite ladies at Rustic Maka have done it again! Thank you for creating these bath salts that I feel are safe to use, all natural, and truly so enjoyable!

Check out Skora Bath Salts and see all the other scents Rustic Maka has to offer. My favourites are Citrus Gardens and Sweet Lemonade!! Use two generous handfuls in your bath and keep your bath salts sealed properly and in a dry place!

Love,

Kaitlyn Leeb

What Are You Wearing This Season?

Spread - High Heels & Tutus

Click on the image above to check out the Rag & Bone vest Jodi is wearing.

Hi guys! I’m Jodi, the newest contributor to Spread. I’m super passionate about fashion and am excited to share my ideas with this amazing community. This season I am in love with Rag & Bone. The whole collection is amazing and so wearable, especially their amazing collection of Vests.

I fell in love with the Faye vest the minute I laid eyes on it. The peaked lapel and double breasted style had me hooked and I knew this would be a versatile piece in my wardrobe. Rag & Bone has out done themselves this season with a neutral colour pallet accented with bright reds, purples and oranges.

There is not an item in this collection I wouldn’t love to own. Most of their pieces are sewn in the USA which also appeals to my patriotic nature and sense of community. Their main focus is on classic tailoring and beautifully constructed clothing and they are constantly redefining urban style and how we dress.

What do you guys think? What are you excited about this season?

DIY: A Brush Stroke Scarf In 3 Easy Steps

Spread - DIY: Brush Stroke Scarf

What you’ll need:

  • White/blank light cotton scarf
  • Fabric paint (in any colour you like – the more colours the better!)
  • A wide, flat paintbrush
  • An iron (if your paint requires heat setting)

Spread - DIY: Brush Stroke Scarf

Step 1: Wash your scarf

Give your scarf a good wash (without fabric softener) and iron it before you start painting. If you’re impatient, I know how you feel! But this is important as it’ll get rid of excess chemicals in your cloth and will help your paint to stick properly.

Step 2: Get painting!

Place some plastic sheets beneath your scarf to protect the surface from any paint that might seep through. Then get painting! Using a wide, flat paintbrush start brushing short strokes of paint over the length of the scarf, all going in the same direction. Try not to overload your brush with paint, otherwise you’ll end up with spots and blobs rather than the brush strokes we’re after.

Step 3: Let it dry

Leave your scarf lying nice and flat to dry (this may take up to 24 hours) and if your paint requires it, iron your scarf on the reverse side to heat set your pattern.
