6 clean bath & body care brands for babies and kids

6 clean bath & body care brands for babies and kids

(Please note: This is not a sponsored post, but it does contain some affiliate links.)   By now, you’ve probably heard or read about the potential link between Johnson & Johnson’s  talcum powder (which they no longer use) and ovarian cancer. What I find most upsetting about this story is that it’s about a product meant for babies.  If there is any category of products on the market that should be considered safe, it should be those for babies and kids.  Right? If you go into a store like Buy Buy Baby or even just...

Some news!

Some news!

Well, I initially planned to do a post today about one of my very favorite natural brands (Hint: It has to do with plant-based therapy), but I went into labor 4 weeks early and kind of had my hands full! Meet Megan Michele Turner, the newest addition to my sweet family of five. We’re both doing great, and I hope to be back with a normal post on...

Vitacost haul (food, skincare, & condiments)

Vitacost haul (food, skincare, & condiments)

Hello! I placed one of my weekly orders to Vitacost a few days ago, and since my box arrived today, I figured that I’d share what was inside. (Side note: I just subscribed to a farm delivery box for things like eggs, milk, and cheese since we go through those things quickly in this house with the kids.  I’m so excited about it and cannot wait to show you what we get!) Eden Organic Black Beans I’ve been loving beans lately in salads as a good source of protein, so I decided to stock up while they were on sale.  I cannot...

My new mommy blog is live!

My new mommy blog is live!

Happy Monday! As you can tell by the title of this post, my mommy blog The Mini Skirt is officially up and running.  I’m so excited! Just to recap a bit for anyone who didn’t know that I would be making the change… I decided to create a spin-off mommy blog with just my baby, toddler, parenting, and pregnancy related posts because I know that not all of my original readers care about that stuff.  For that reason, I had been holding back on some of the mommy posts that I really wanted to share.  Now, with two blogs, the sky...

Weekend recap and big changes!

Weekend recap and big changes!

Happy Monday! Did you have a nice weekend? I got to visit The Original Pancake House again for a delicious breakfast with the family. Michael has been such a picky eater lately, but he certainly can put away some dollar pancakes when we go to that restaurant! My nieces Ava and Brianna turned one over the weekend, so we went to their first birthday party on Sunday. They were so adorable with their little cakes, and Ava cracked me up by diving into hers face first. Who needs to use their hands or utensils anyway? It was such a fun time,...

Life Lately: 2 Months Postpartum

Life Lately: 2 Months Postpartum

Happy Friday! It is hard to believe, but Addison turned two months old this week.  I thought that it would be a great time to do a life update to let you know how my little family is doing. How Addison is doing… Addison is a very sweet, cuddly, tolerant baby. We’re very lucky that she has such an easy-going disposition considering how her brother is always in her face and/or making tons of noise.  She did go through a collicky period for about the first 6 weeks, but thankfully, it was just for an hour or so every evening.  She...
