Organize with Baby Food Jars!

Organize with Baby Food Jars

I love sharing with you how we reuse our baby food jars and I just found another use for them! Our cabinets in our bathroom have been very unorganized and things easily fall out when we open them. I HAD to find a solution and baby food jars from Addy's Earth's Best food came to the rescue! Take a look at our before and after: See how much better it looks after cleaning up just one corner?! I will definitely be adding more of these for … [Read more...]

Winter is upon us! We've really noticed the temperatures dropping in the recent weeks and now we are left looking for fun things to do inside.

He often does craft type projects at daycare and they've always said how much he enjoys them, so my answer was a subscription box away! I was thrilled at the opportunity to discover Green … [Read more...]

Sibu Beauty Helps Men Go Natural with Shaving #HolidayGift

Sibu Shaving Kit

When looking for gifts for my husband and father I wanted to help them learn about healthier, more natural choices.

I looked to Sibu Beauty for help in this mission and was pleased to see they had just what we needed: a Men's Shaving Kit! Sibu Beauty products are a 100% natural … [Read more...]

Working out is not something I am overly fond of. Well, maybe it would be easier if I had more time! Most women (that I know) don't LOVE working out, but we realize it's something we need to do.

Keeping Our Toddler’s Feet Warm this Winter with Pediped

Your Toddler Will Find Balance is Easy with PlasmaBike

PlasmaBike

Our two year old son has been in love with ride-on toys and bikes for the past year. In fact, we went to the store several months ago and he practically refused to leave the store without the bike he wanted. It was a small enough bike for him, however, it had training wheels and he had no clue how to ride a bike at just 2 years old. When I learned about the PlasmaBike balance bike, I knew this would be the perfect gift for … [Read more...]

LA was invited to a birthday party of one of his friends. This was a first and he had such a fun time this past weekend!

She doesn't smile for anyone as much or as big … [Read more...]
