Happy Holidays! I hope you’re all feeling festive.  Thanks to my kiddos, Christmas has never been so much fun.  My son actually looks like a bit Kevin in Home Alone and has a whole lot of Buddy the Elf in him as far as personality.  It’s pretty spectacular really. I’m going to do a little gift guide next week, so please check on back! Here are my favorites from last month… Sunwarrior Sol Good Protein Bar in Salted Caramel When it comes to salty or sweet, I am a salt fan all the way…but when I can get both?...

Products I’m Loving Lately for Hair Growth

Products I’m Loving Lately for Hair Growth

Before I got pregnant with my third baby, I was dealing with some rheumatoid arthritis flare-ups and had to administer some pretty heavy duty injectables into my body every few days.   An unfortunate side effect was thinning hair.  Couple that with some postpartum hair loss, and my hair was in need of a little TLC. Getting my hair back to where I want it to be has been quite the journey, but I am getting there with the help of the products below.  I’ve also been letting it air dry and trying to wear it in its natural wavy state (which...

Happy November! I hope that you had a great October.  Did it fly by quickly or what?  It was such a special month for us between visiting the farm and pumpkin patch, dressing up for Halloween, and celebrating my oldest baby’s 4th birthday.  November is already shaping up to be just as fun! I don’t have many favorites from the month because I have been working through my current stashes, but what I do have to share with you is worth the read, so please stick with me.

Nontoxic home & beauty products for pumpkin lovers

Nontoxic home & beauty products for pumpkin lovers

A little over two years ago, I did a post called 10 beauty products for pumpkin lovers.  That post is a little out of date now, especially considering that only a couple of the products were green. We can’t have that now, can we? So, today I present to you, my updated list of beauty and home care products just for my fellow pumpkin lovers! Stewart & Claire Lip Balm Autumn Pai Pomegranate & Pumpkin Seed Stretch Mark System Ultra Hydrating Body Wash Coconut Pumpkin Farmers’ Market Natural Bar Soap Pumpkin Spice Pumpkinhead...

Beauty Brand Spotlight on Aleavia

Beauty Brand Spotlight on Aleavia

If you’ve been following along closely lately then you already know that I’ve become an Aleavia devotee. In fact, the majority of my skin care routine consists of Aleavia products now. Green beauty products, while fabulous for so many reasons, can be painfully expensive, and when you are a product junkie, that can become a problem. One of the many reasons why I am drawn to Aleavia is because it is so affordable compared to many other effective, natural, beauty brands. Founded by Kelly Graham, Aleavia is “an exclusive...

Happy October! It feels like I just did one of these posts for August.  September was kind of a blur with school and extracurricular activities starting up again, but I am really excited about October.  My oldest baby turns four at the end of the month! Aside from the fact that the weather finally started to cool off a degree or two, here are some of the things that I loved during the month of September.     LCOrganics Autumn Room & Linen Sprays I already wrote about these in my post on 3 nontoxic ways to instantly make your...

3 nontoxic ways to instantly make your home smell like Fall

3 nontoxic ways to instantly make your home smell like Fall

I just cannot get enough of fall aromas like warm apple pie, pumpkin, and crisp leaves. One of my biggest weaknesses are fall scented candles from Bath & Body Works, but I hate how they release so many toxins into the air that my children breathe.  I try not to burn candles in general when my kids are awake, but I do allow myself to get some candles during the fall and the winter because I am a big believer in “everything in moderation” and well, I love them. Still, I am always looking for more natural ways to add fragrance...

Products I’ve used up lately & my thoughts on each one (#7)

Please note: This post contains some affiliate links.    I’ve been really good about using things up lately before I buy anything new.  As a result, whoa…I have a serious empties collection to share with you today. Sit back, relax, and sip on a cup of tea.  This may take awhile.     Desert Essence Organics Sweet Almond Hand & Body Lotion I used this on my body, and it had a really nice scent.  That being said, it was a giant pain in the you-know-where to work into my skin, so I am not going to buy it again....
