Natural Colored Cotton Clothing for Your Little One – Debest Baby [+ giveaway!]

Debest Giveaway

This post is brought to you courtesy of Debest Baby, who provided one of their adorable natural cotton onesies to Jamie of Momma Without a Clue  for review.  All opinions expressed are 100% Jamie's own. When a baby company goes above and beyond to keep our little ones healthy, they automatically earn credit in my book. That's why I was thrilled to be able to review a piece from their clothing line. You see, Debest uses naturally colored cotton to create beautiful clothes that will not only last for years, they're free from harmful toxins, bleaches, and dyes. For my baby girl, we received the "Blossoms In Bloom" short-sleeve bodysuit. This organic onesie is heavier than most of the other brands she's worn, but in a breathable kind of way. The natural cotton color is a gorgeous background for the little cherry blossom print, and the … [Read more...]

Luminance Skincare Giveaway Event – 3 Winners – US

Luminance-Giveaway-Button-Final-e1404928831648

Welcome to the Luminance Skincare Giveaway Event, hosted by Happy Mothering and the Green Moms Network. Today, we're excited to introduce you to an up and coming natural skincare brand - Luminance. Luminance Skincare was born when Priscilla, company Founder Kim's wife, became allergic to conventional skincare products. Just walking through the beauty section in a department store would have her down for the day with a migraine. After doing some research, Kim realized that his wife was reacting to the toxic chemicals used in most conventional skincare brands. He was appalled at how hard it was to go out and buy skincare products that would be safe for his wife (and everyone else) to use, so he decided to put his scientist skills to work and develop skincare products that would be safe for his wife. He started with soap, which … [Read more...]

Doctor On Demand: A Doctor That’s Always a Phone Call Away

Dr on Demand Emergency

This is a sponsored conversation on behalf of the Doctor On Demand App.  All opinions are my own. I count myself lucky that my family is pretty healthy in general.  I hardly ever have the need to visit a doctor and occasionally have to take the girls in for sick visits, but I still count myself lucky.  On those occurrences that we do have to make a doctor's office visit, I'm usually completely stressed out - waiting and worrying how long it will take to actually get an appointment, taking 2 kids into an office where so many germs are floating around, dealing with 1 or 2 sick kids in public when all they want is to be held by Mom at home, and don't even get me started on the worry about how much it will cost. But what about those times that they're sick on the weekends?  Holidays?  Vacations?  Moreaya actually ran a super high fever … [Read more...]

Making Homemade Baby Food: As Simple as ABC’s

Simple ABC Baby Food

Thanks to Cuisinart for sponsoring today's discussing about making homemade baby food.  All opinions expressed are my own. When Sophia was ready to start eating solid foods, I read a lot about making homemade baby food.  I knew the pros - it's cheaper, healthier and fresher, and just really all around better.  But it didn't seem easy.  I was a first time Mom and I needed all the shortcuts I could get so we bought organic jarred baby food. Then Moreaya came and it was her time to start eating solid foods.  Although you would think I would have been busier... since I had a 6 month old and a 2 year old, I challenged myself to make homemade baby food the 2nd time around.  You see, I had started reading even more and realized making your own baby food is actually really simple.  I would even venture to say making homemade baby food is as … [Read more...]

Take a Stroll Through Murphy, NC with a Summer Infant Stroller #3DLiteStrollerTour

3Dlite-features

Thanks to Summer Infant for providing a Summer Infant Stroller for the Stroller Tour to facilitate this post and to Jamie from Momma Without a Clue for this review! There's nothing I like more than going for a walk at the end of the day with my family. It helps bring us closer together, winds the kids down so they're ready for the bedtime routine when we get back home, and is just a peaceful way to end our hectic days. Recently. we were sent a 3D lite Stroller from Summer Infant to review, and not a moment too soon I might add. While my baby girl is still little compared to other 15 month-olds, toting around 18 pounds on my hip gets heavy after a while. Of course, I could let her walk since she's perfected the toddle-toddle-wobble, but the goal of our evening walks is to relax. There's just something less-than-calm about having to … [Read more...]

Swing into Summer with the Brylane Home Family Swing

Brylane Home Swing Review

Thank you to Brylane Home for sending a Family Swing to facilitate this review.  All opinions expressed are my own. We spend a lot of time outdoors... a lot.  That's why I love living where we live because we have a large backyard for the girls to roam and roam they do!  Luckily they're getting to the age where they can roam without me being right on top of them so I've been looking for ways to lounge a little lazily, but still be able to keep them in full sight.  Sure - lounging in my Zero Gravity Chair is where you'll usually find me, but sometimes a girl just wants to swing! Boy, did I get my wish with our new Brylane Home Extra Wide Textured Vinyl 3-Seat Swing!  It arrived at our house just a little over a week ago and I begged Rob to help me put it together this past weekend.  Once we saw the box I was glad that I had begged … [Read more...]
