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...

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...

Some of my skin care & hair care essentials for travel

Hi! My family and I took a little mini-vacation to Charleston, South Carolina this past weekend.  Much to my disappointment, I didn’t see any of the Southern Charm cast members- though I was certainly on high alert the whole time. I was pretty proud of myself for packing lightly, but there were some skin care and hair care essentials that I knew I had to bring…no matter what. Ursa Major Fantastic Face Wash I received a sample of this face wash in my last Petit Vour box, and honestly, I wasn’t overly excited to try it...
