Hydrating With Your Health & The Environment In Mind {+ Starkey Water Giveaway!}

You may be wondering why water is so exciting to me, and truthfully I never thought it would be, but as I strive to live a healthier life I look more closely at even the most basic aspects of daily life — and the water I use to hydrate my body, and those of my […]

An Earth-Friendly Cat Litter That Works?

Our family always had cats while I was growing up, but somehow as an adult I landed firmly in the dog person category. I was happy with my dogs and that was that. Or so I thought. If you’re a parent, you may be familiar with the experience of your child begging for a new […]

Menstrual Cups: One Size Does Not Fit All

I have mad love for my cup (hello freedom!), so when I had the opportunity to try a cup from Lunette I was excited.  I love my cup for the convenience, comfort and health benefits, but women come in all different shapes and sizes so not every cup will work for every woman and I […]

Unique Gifts They’ll Love : Holiday Gift Guide

This year my gifts span a whole range of types and eco-friendliness. As my children grow, I am finding increasingly more difficult to find items that meet their wants and dreams, as well as my sustainable desires. Over the years I’ve learned that my definition of “green” has evolved to include quality items that are […]

Practical Gifts for Dad

I don’t know about the men in your life, but mine are terribly hard to buy for. Their needs and wants are simple, and for the most part they already own the things that could end up on a list. These ideas are fun, a little traditional, and a whole lot useful! I hope you […]

Honeywell Wi-Fi Smart Thermostat Review

As you may know, we moved into a new home last year and while there are many things I love, the thermostat is not one. I could not figure out how to properly use or set it, causing a lot of discomfort (and grumpiness on warmer days.) So when I was given the opportunity to […]

Mango Avocado Kale Smoothie

When Silk offered to send me a few coupons to try out their new Fruit &  Protein I was pretty excited because I knew my kids would love it and I was looking forward to coming up with some fun way to use it and I finally figured it out! I have been wanting to […]

How I Came To Love Menstrual Cups

If you’ve been around here long at all, you know that I like to talk about feminine care… Okay so maybe that’s odd.  Let me explain! I was the girl that flat our refused to buy her own tampons until she was in college and had absolutely no other choice.  I didn’t want to be […]

Beco Butterfly 2 Carrier Review

Let’s christen this new blog transfer with a hot giveaway!!! I’m a big fan of babywearing, as I have mentioned in the past, and I am always excited to discover and try out new carriers.  While I was at the ABC Kids Expo this past September, I had a chance to get my hands on […]

Save Money and Swap – ThredUp Review & Giveaway

We have three small children who are constantly growing out of their old clothes and into the next size up.  Unlike some lucky people, we don’t have a source for hand me downs (that would be so amazing!)  With three kids, clothing gets expensive and it seems like a bit of a waste since they […]

Comfy Mommy: Bravado Bra Review

As a nursing mother I find it hard to come by bras that I like for comfort, let alone any that look good too.  Earlier this year I wrote to you about my favorite bra, the Bravado Bliss.  I have been so happy with this bra.  I routinely choose it over all of my other […]

A nursing bra that you’ll love! Bravado Bliss Review

I have been a nursing mother for the better part of the last 5 1/2 years.  I have a 5 1/2 year old, a 2 1/2 year old and now an almost 1 year old.  I have owned countless nursing bras in this time.  My first ones were okay.  They were supportive, but not always […]

Stuffy nose? No problem! NoseFrida Review

Over the winter I heard a lot about a little gadget used to clean out mucus from babies noses.  At first I thought it was just some sort of bulb attached to a hose.  Then I learned that it was meant to be attached to your mouth.  Yes, you read that right.  Your mouth.  “What?!”, […]

Felt Play Food: Oh how I love imaginative play!

Our children are deprived by some standards.  We have a TV and we have cable, but I block the cartoon channels.  Yes, you read that right.  I have a parental block on our cartoon channels. Why you ask?  Well, our 5 year old is very bright.  Years ago he decided that he could turn the […]

Dishwasher leaving you cloudy? Lemi-Shine Review

We have been hand washing dishes for ages. One fine day, last year, my husband bought us a dishwasher. It’s new and efficient and I thought it would make things so much easier. I was thrilled. Well, a few washes and I was going nuts. I tried several detergents, top rated and non eco-friendly too […]
