Green Tip Tuesday

Now that it's getting warmer, don't forget to bring along a reusable cup for drinks while being out and about! If you are a coffee person I would hope you already have a hot reusable cup, but they even make them for cold drinks now! They are GREAT and most even have a reusable straw as well! Many times a gas station or store will give you a small discount for using your own cup so don't be afraid to ask! These cups typically cost between $7 and … [Read more...]

Ways to Save on Electricity

We could all use a few reminders on how to save electricity. If you are new to going green you may be wondering how electricity can contribute to the environment. Let me see if I can answer that for you. Most of the time electricity is created by burning coal, which then turns the turbines and creates electricity. The more coal that is burned, the more greenhouse gases are produced. Greenhouse gases contribute to global warming. Too much … [Read more...]

Happy Ten Months, LA!

Did I just write that? Wow, ten months. Before I know it we are going to be celebrating our baby boy's first birthday! Let's take a look back and see what you've been up to lately. You LOVE to stand and hold onto the couch now! You walk along the couch and anything else you can hold onto! Daddy and I bought you a push toy and you absolutely love walking and pushing the toy! It makes musical sounds when you walk with it. You have the biggest, … [Read more...]

The Cookware Company/GreenPan Review

Ladies, I have an amazing product to share with you today! I absolutely love to cook. My wonderful husband would question that since I don't do it everyday, but when I have the time, I love it! It has been rather difficult for me to find cookware that I love but I have recently found just that...cookware that I am totally in love with! It's called GreenPan and these products are referred to as a "new generation of cookware". GreenPan develops … [Read more...]

Levana Naturals Review and GIVEAWAY!

There is so much information that I want to include in this review but I am going to try and shorten it so that you aren't reading for 2 hours! This is REALLY worth the read though because this is some GREAT information! I was so happy to find a place like Levana Naturals! First, the owner, Beate, is incredibly sweet and helpful in making sure to educate others on organic clothing. She taught me so much about organic clothing and actually … [Read more...]

Green Tip Tuesday

With the price of gas steadily rising I figured what better green tip than one that will help save the planet AND help save some money? Driving less can reduce greenhouse gas emissions and can save you from putting more gas in your tank before you want to! Ok, well no one really wants to, but before you have to, how about that? :) Before you leave for your next outing think about if what you are about to do can be combined with other errands … [Read more...]

Green Living Festival

I was so excited a few weeks ago when I saw a commercial for a "Green Living Festival" that was going to be very close to us! I couldn't wait to go! I asked some friends of ours if they wanted to go and we were just waiting for the day! Ok, well I was just waiting for the day! LOL LA was sick last week with a fever and it finally went away Friday so we were happy that we would all be able to go! Of course the weather had to not cooperate. It's … [Read more...]

Peter Rabbit Organics Review and GIVEAWAY

Peter Rabbit Organics is a small, privately owned company that was started by a group of five people who had a desire to put children's health first. They wanted to create a snack that was healthy and did not contain sugar or salt. They wanted to know that the foods they ate (and their children ate) contained no artificial ingredient but still tasted good. What they came up with became Peter Rabbit Organics, super tasty food that is produced in … [Read more...]

Green Tip Tuesday – Recycling

One of the changes we are making this year is recycling. Terrible we didn't previously recycle, I know. Crazy that our city charges $10 per month to get the recycle bin to put out with the trash. That makes me mad because it discourages people from recycling. I did find that we can drop off our recyclables on Saturday mornings though, which we do instead of spending the $10 per month. Here are some things we recycle now: Glass - all baby … [Read more...]

Garlic Gold Review and Discount Code!

I am a garlic addict lover. I can never seem to get enough garlic. My darling husband? Not so much. It's difficult for me to cook and leave out my love of garlic but I want him to love what I cook too. I was extremely excited when I got the opportunity to review Garlic Gold Oil! I thought even if I had to cook something separate for just me I was going to do it for my love of garlic and because I wanted to share a new organic item with my … [Read more...]

Green Tip Tuesday – Dishwasher soap

This is going to be a quick and simple Green Tip Tuesday! When I posted Green Tips a few weeks ago about cleaning products I had a comment from someone asking for a dishwasher soap. I didn't have one, but I found one online that I wanted to share! Mix together ½ cup Dr. Bronner’s Castile liquid soap, ½ cup water, 1-2 teaspoons of lemon juice and ½ cup white vinegar. Blend well and store in a plastic bottle. Two tablespoons will do for one load of … [Read more...]

Happy Nine Months LA!!

Where to begin? My little sugar bear, you are so busy! Crawling was just the beginning! :) I don't think what you do would be considered crawling, it's sprinting on all fours! You fly!! You have also decided that you love to stand up and you pull yourself up on everything! I was so happy when you figured out how to get back down though because we went through a period of you standing up and then you would stay up because you didn't know how to … [Read more...]
