Green Kids Spotlight: Pleni Naturals

Green Kids Spotlight: Pleni Naturals

As you might expect coming from me, I only use products that are safe, natural, and clean on my three little ones.  While I am ultra cautious about the things that I use on myself, I am very strict about what goes in and on their bodies. I’m so happy to feature Pleni Naturals today, as the brand meets all of my criteria and more. The products contain safe ingredients, such as broccoli, cucumber, and olive oils, and they get their fragrance through essential oils.  So, they are gentle and nourishing enough to use on the whole...

Friday Favorites (1/30)

This week, I pretty much unplugged from social media, reading blogs, and blogging myself.  I even tried not to pick up my phone as much as usual- which clearly needed to happen since my 2 year old has started walking around imitating me with his pretend phone. Unplugging was an honorary favorite, and if you have not unplugged lately, you should give it a go.  It is amazing how much you can get accomplished when you aren’t looking at photos of your friends’ children or their cats on Facebook all day long.  In fact, I have been...

If you’re anything like me at all, you’d be completely lost without your computer. Well, I’ve recently fallen in love with some websites that have made my laptop even more valuable to me than it was already. I think you’ll like some- if not all- of them too!   the Skimm I think it’s important to stay informed and know what’s going on in the world around us, but I don’t always have the time to watch the news or read through every story on CNN’s website.  The Skimm is “a daily...
