Assessables Newborn Bodysuits Review

I remember when my first baby was born.  The doctor told us to allow the umbilical cord area to air-dry.  That was difficult.  I wanted to put her in one piece outfits because those would be the warmest, but that didn't allow her cord to air dry.  Also, a shirt and pants still covered up the cord as well. Ugh!  Thankfully, I've recently found the solution: Assessables Newborn Bodysuits...



Yoomi Lambi Review


You may remember my previous review of the Yoomi Self-Warming Baby Bottle.  Those bottles are FABULOUS!  Well, I've got another great Yoomi review for you today!  - The Yoomi Lambi!

Jack n' Jill Natural Toothpaste and Toothbrush Review

With Christmas coming, I'm always looking for great stocking stuffers for my toddler.  I like to balance things out - give her some candy and toys and also some necessities like soap, etc.  I always like to put a new toothbrush and some toothpaste in there.  This year, I've chosen Jack n' Jill's Natural Toothpaste...



GlassStraws.com Review


Lately I've been thinking about my family's use of plastics - especially in the kitchen.  Plastics are not environmentally friendly, often contain some pretty dangerous and poisonous chemicals, and are, well, expensive.  I mean, think about it - plastic sandwich bags, plastic straws, etc.  You have to buy them over and over and over again.  And that gets pricy.  Lately though, I've found a great solutionreplacement for plastic straws - Glass Straws!  They don't contain those nasty poisons, so they are safer!  And they are reusable, so they are environmentally AND wallet friendly!!!  WhooHoo!!!

The awesome folks at GlassStraws.com were kind enough to send me a variety of straws for review! They have all sorts of straws to choose from! 

Bent Straws...

Sparkle Bright Review

OK, who has jewelry that needs to be cleaned?  Who hates having to constantly drive to a jewelry store to have it cleaned?  Who also hates the clean-at-home jewelry cleaners that have all those nasty, smelly, dangerous chemicals?  If you answered yes to all those questions - like I did - then have I got a treat for you! - Sparkle Bright Jewelry Cleaner!!!

 

Sibu Sea Buckthorn Soap Review

I love finding new, natural skincare products to try, so I was thrilled when Sibu Beauty contacted me about a review!  Their products are made from this fabulously nutritious little fruit called Sea Buckthorn.  (You can find out more about the benefits of Sea Buckthorn HERE.)  The awesome folks at Sibu were kind enough to send me one of their Cleanse and Detox Face and Body Bars to review...



Pacific Baby Review

I've recently become very concerned about the products I use - especially with my kids.  That's why I was thrilled to find Pacific Baby online!  They make some wonderful, safe, environmentally friendly, convertible baby bottles.  That's right!  CONVERTIBLE!  They grow with your baby!!!!

Moringa Source Review


OK, I had never heard of Moringa before.  Have you?  If you haven't, here's a little info: "Moringa oleifera is a species of tree native to the Himalayan Mountains of Northern India, now cultivated across Southeast Asia, Africa and South America. Packed with a full spectrum of nutrients, Moringa oleifera is the most nutrient-dense plant ever studied."

I found this info on the Moringa Source website.  I also found some pretty neat products! 



Floppy Seat Review

OK moms, pop quiz time!  Which is nastier: a public restroom or a shopping cart?  I think the answer may shock you!  According to a University of Arizona study shopping carts failed more hygiene tests than public restrooms!  54% of them contained bodily fluid and 21% tested positive for blood, mucus, saliva, or urine.

All of a sudden I feel an OVERWHELMING desire to go out and buy about a dozen shopping cart covers!  Seriously!  I mean, I'm not "miss over-protective mama" but who wants their child sitting in that!!!???!!!  Thankfully, I've found a FABULOUS, convenient, adorable new cover - the Floppy Seat! 


Novena Maternal Skincare Review and PROMO CODE


Recently I've become more concerned about the products I use on my face.  There's so much junk out there.  And being pregnant, my skin has gotten even that much more sensitive.  Thankfully, I recently discovered Novena Maternal Skincare.  That's right!  Its skincare developed especially for pregnant women!!!

BURP Hooded Bamboo Baby Towel Review

I recently discovered the wonders of bamboo.  Did you know that bamboo makes a WONDERFUL towel? Its WAY more absorbent than cotton, its antibacterial, and its SUPER SOFT!  And I've found a company that sells an amazing bamboo bath towel - Baby U R Precious.  They were kind enough to send me one of their hooded baby bath towels for review...

BuggyLOVE Review


OK, I received a review item that just BLEW ME AWAY - the BuggyLOVE Organic Stroller Cleaning Kit!  This thing is seriously awesome!  All of the products are natural and organic.  And I've never seen another company that makes products intended for cleaning strollers!



Silisipper Review

My little one has reached that age where we're working on using a real cup instead of a sippy cup.  Our pediatrician suggested buying some of those small disposable cups (like you use in the bathroom) to help her. Well, I did it - even though I'm not big on buying the disposable cups (for environmental and monetary reasons).  The first few times I gave one of those cups to her - with some water in it - she turned it almost completely upside down and all the water spilled out.  Well, she didn't like that very much and refused to drink from the cups after that.  Thankfully, I've found a solution - the Silisipper!!!


Tiny Tot Organics Earth Mama Angel Baby Review


I have found another AWESOME online store - Tiny Tot Organics!  I love a store that pays attention to what they sell and Tiny Tot Organics is one of those stores!  It was started by a woman who has been a pediatric nurse for 27 years.  She's concerned about what kids are using to eat with, play with, etc.  The products she sells are organic, natural, safe, and eco-friendly.  And here's a great example: Earth Mama Angel Baby Organics...



Little Green Pouch Reuseable Food Pouch Review


I have an AWESOME new review for all you moms out there!  First, let me say that I LOVE those little pouch foods!  (You know, the apple sauce in a pouch that your toddler can suck on.)  They are so convenient!  If I need to give my little one a little snack but we're out and I don't want to have to bring a spoon and bowl, or if we're at home but I don't want my little one to get really messy (like right before church, etc) then I love being able to give her one of those pouches!  But let's face it, they can get pricey.  Well, I've found an AWESOME solution to the price problem - Little Green Pouch!

This time I chose their adorable Angel Dear Pink Kitty Blankie.  Its so adorable!  And I chose purple for the monogramming.  I hope my little one likes it.  :)

Pure Joy Toddler Car Seat Cover Review

So, as many of you know, we are currently expecting our second little blessing.  When I was pregnant with our first (a baby girl), being the money-saver that I am, I thought I'd get as much gender-neutral gear as I could.  That way, if our second was a boy, we wouldn't have to replace everything.  Well guess what.  Our second is a girl!  Haha!  Now I want some fun, colorful stuff!

Thankfully, there's a wonderful shop called Pure Joy!  The sell infant and toddler car seat covers, stroller liners, blankets, burp cloths, bassinet sheets - all in fun, colorful patterns!  The awesome folks at Pure Joy were kind enough to send my toddler a lovely, fun Toddler Car Seat Cover!

Novica Gift Finder Review


 
You may remember the Novica review I did several months ago.  I love Novica!  They have lots of handmade items from all over the world!  Its an incredible place to shop for unique and beautiful gifts for friends and loved ones!  And with Christmas quickly approaching, we are in that gift-shopping mode around here!  Sometimes though, its hard to think of a gift for someone.  It can be really frustrating when you just don't know where to start. 

But Novica has changed all that!  They've recently added a fabulous Gift Finder to their website!  WooHoo!  It helps you narrow down the options when shopping for friends and family!  For example, are you shopping for an animal lover?  Just click on the "Gifts For the Animal Lover" section of the Gift Finder!  Need a hostess gift for a holiday party?  Just click on Hostess Gifts!

25 Days of Christmas - 25 Names of Christ (An Advent Idea)

OK folks! Tomorrow is December!  Can you believe it?  I can't!  Of course, that might have something to do with the fact that I was sick for practically the entire month of November.  Ugh!  Thankfully, I'm feeling better!  Anyway, with Christmas approaching, I thought I'd share a wonderful idea that I found on Pinterest - an advent for the month of December featuring 25 ornaments each with a name of Jesus!



I try very hard to make sure that my little one grows up understanding the true meaning of Christmas - that Jesus, the Son of God, came to earth and was born as a baby.  That He grew up, lived a perfect life, and died to save us from our sins.  Now, don't get me wrong.  We have a Christmas tree.  We exchange presents.  We have lots of snowmen decorations, etc.  But we try to also fill the house with things that remind us of Jesus - like nativities, decorations with Bible verses, etc.  So when I saw this idea I knew we just had to do it!

You may remember the review I did of Ecocentric Mom's August Baby Box.  It was such a great little box filled with handy products and product samples.  Well, the folks at Ecocentric Mom were kind enough to ask me to review one of their November boxes!  These boxes are great because they are full of fun, unique, eco-friendly products.  They are also very affordable - at just $17 a month (which includes shipping)!  They have 3 boxes to choose from: the Baby Box, the Mom Box, and the Mom-To-Be Box.  This time I chose to review the Mom Box, and let me just say, I was NOT disappointed!!!

Ecostore USA Review



If you're like me, you always looking for ways to keep your family healthier.  One way I've found to do that is by buying safer cleaning products.  Ecostore USA is a great place to get those products!  Their products are 100% plant-based!  Their website states:

"With ingredient selection, we take a precautionary approach. This means if there is any doubt about the safety of an ingredient, we find a safer alternative. That is why ecoSTORE USA is completely transparent to its customers by listing each and every ingredient contained in the products we manufacture."

Citrus Lane October 2012 Boxes Review & 50% Off Your First Box!!!

If you'd like to check out Citrus Lane for yourself, you can click this REFERRAL LINK and get 50% Off Your First Box!!!

Sorry this post is a little late.  We've been SUPER busy lately!  But I wanted to take a few minutes and review October's Citrus Lane boxes.  This month's theme was "Fall Fun."  Now, don't be confused by that title.  This wasn't a box filled with pumpkins and Halloween stuff.  Some people would like that and some people wouldn't.  But Citrus Lane really thought this month's theme out!  Knowing that, for most of the country, Fall means cooler temperatures and more time playing inside, they put things in the box that could be used inside!  WooHoo!

We receive 2 boxes every month - one for our toddler and one for our upcoming blessing!  I'll start by reviewing the toddler box:
