Softer, Static Free Clothes with Wool Dryer Balls

Screen Shot 2012-07-18 at 9_opt(2)

I have been hearing about wool dryer balls and how great they are to reduce drying times and static. I wanted to try them, but I honestly kept forgetting about them once I left the “laundry room” (which is actually my gross basement – yuck). When I was given the opportunity to try a set from The Willow Store, I was super excited. Laundry is a hot topic in my house. Jay likes to use very popular commercial products for {Read More}

Packing school lunches just got easier with Easy Lunchboxes {Giveaway} (CLOSED)

A delicious lunch!! Turkey, cheese, lettuce and spicy mustard inside a whole wheat pita bread, cucumber sticks, blueberries, strawberries and a few Jax. I also stuck a cookie in her lunch cooler, two juice boxes, a banana and a whole wheat English muffin with PB! PLUS two ice packs :)

I never realized how hard packing school lunches could be before my daughter started school this year. Making lunch wasn’t something that I thought out or planned before hand; I would just kind of wander into the kitchen around noon and see what we had. Sometimes it would be a super elaborate and creative lunch, and sometimes it was just a really good sandwich. Either way, it was good, easy and quick. Making lunch got a LOT harder this year. {Read More}

Earth Day reminds us that we not only need to be kind an considerate to what we are doing to our beautiful Earth, but also what we are doing and putting into our bodies. Many times personal care products are not really thought of when people think about going “green” or if they are thought of, they do not hit as high up on the list as they should. There are many nasty products in our everyday items, and you {Read More}

Aussan Natural Review

I love natural products – I love them even more when they actually do what they say they will! I had the opportunity to try out a few products made by Aussan Natural, and they were wonderful! I was very eager to try these products, but the real test comes when Jay uses them – he is very picky about cleaning products, and puts them through tons of tests. We both agreed that we really like the All Purpose Nursery {Read More}

113175_bambo_nature-199x180

Both of my children have incredibly sensitive skin. I hoped that E would not have the same sensitivity to diapers that my daughter had always had. We struggled to find a diaper that didn’t cause her to break out in a rash, and we were now having the same problem with him. The first few months, E could wear any type of diaper that I purchased, and I tried to purchase ones with high backs for extra leak protection. But, {Read More}

I am the first to admit that I LOVE bottled water. There is just something that is so nice about the convenience of it. However, I do not like all the waste, and the negative effects of plastic bottles on the earth. I had given up my bottled water, until I found EcoUsable. EcoUsable is a reusable Stainless Steel water bottle! I love that they offer a light weight, safe water bottle – in a variety of colors and styles. {Read More}
