Celebrating Medela Recycles with a Medela Freestyle® Breastpump Giveaway


Welcome to the Medela Freecycle Pump Giveaway sponsored by Medela and hosted by The Pistachio Project. Recycling has become a pretty common activity in our everyday lives. We recycle at home, we recycle at work, we even have recycling bins on the streets now! But what about the bigger items that we no longer need? Take for instance, breastpumps. What do we do with breastpumps once we are done with our breastfeeding experience? Introducing Medela Recycles Medela has heard the voices of moms and taken the initiative to create Medela Recycles. Medela Recycles is a program which takes our old breast pumps and uses each one to support the donation of new hospital-grade, multi-use breastpumps to Ronald McDonald House Charities. Moms who have babies who need to stay in the NICU get breast pumps while in the hospital but once their time … [Read more...]

PERK Visors: Automotive Air Fresheners

Perk Visor Wrap

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of PERK for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine. What do you like your car to smell like? Yes, I know, it's kind of an odd question to start out a blog post with, but last year I shared what I turned to when my car needed a little perk up. This year, I'm back again with a new product from PERK... visor wraps. The brand new, PERK Visor Wrap is the second automotive air freshener featuring PERK's patent-pending StediScent™ technology, which delivers consistent, high-quality fragrance for up to 30 days! I'm actually quite surprised that this is the first Visor Wrap I've ever seen - it's one of those ideas that you see and say "Why didn't I think of that?!" because it really brings freshness to a new level in your car... it's freshness elevated! A car's sun visor offers an … [Read more...]

ReUse CLASSICO® Pasta Sauce Jars with reCAP®

Mason Jar Soap Dispenser

I've partnered with CLASSICO® and reCAP® to share how to reuse pasta sauce jars and received product, coupons, premium items and reader giveaway coupons as a part of my participation. All opinions given here are fully my own. #CLASSICOMakeItYourOwn   Last week I received a beautiful shipment of products that had me so excited to spend a little time in the kitchen. We're huge fans of CLASSICO pasta sauce already, but I was excited to see some great new products, and especially recipe cards, in our CLASSICO box. In the box was also a few packages from reCAP. I almost always reuse our pasta sauce jars and mason jars, but sometimes I don't feel like I'm really utilizing them like I could. Sure, you can screw the lid back on some jars, but I knew there had to be a better option out there - there is and it's reCAP, but more on … [Read more...]

Get Fit and Ready for Summer with Aurorae Yoga

Aurorae Yoga Towel

If there's one type of exercise that I like doing, it's definitely... lounging on a beach towel. Oh gosh no, that was totally the wrong ending to that sentence.

Enjoy a Cup of Personal Comfort with Organic Tea from Rozhan Tea

Enjoying Cup of Tea

Today's cup of tea was brought to you by Rozhan Tea. All opinions are my own. Do you experience bloating, swelling, menstrual cramps every month with your period? I do and I have for as long as I can possibly remember. Every month, it never fails, that at least one day I want to just lay in bed and wallow in self pity for these very reasons. But I'm a Mom and I power through, somehow. This past month, however, my cup of tea helped me power through with little reason to wallow! Rozhan Tea contacted me about trying their organic teas, especially their Personal Comfort blend, and I enthusiastically said yes. A warm cup of tea always sounds nice... and one that can help with bloating? I'm ready to steep! Rozhan Tea Company is a privately-held woman owned company headquartered in Orange County, CA... As the demand for herbal organic … [Read more...]

It’s Time to Self Feed with this Stonyfield Organic & Tommee Tippee Meal Time

Tommee Tippee Explora

This post was created in partnership with Stonyfield. All opinions are my own.   When your baby gets old enough to start feeding themselves, well, there's quite a mix of emotions. One, it's a little sad that they're big enough for that stage of independence and it's also relief that they're beginning to become a little more independent too! Along with the newfound sense of independence, comes a few messes... ahem, Miss Moreaya! Apparently Moreaya thought that we would finger paint with @stonyfield yogurt pouches this morning rather than eat them? #goodthingshescute organic #replayrecycled #StonyfieldBlogger A photo posted by Lindsey G. (@lindseyblogs) on Aug 19, 2014 at 5:58am PDT Moreaya always seemed to get more yogurt on her than in her mouth, but that's part of learning too! When both my girls started feeding … [Read more...]

Best Cloth Diapers for New Parents

Best Cloth Diapers PIn

This post about the Best Cloth Diapers for New Parents was inspired by a collaboration with Buttons Diapers. All opinions are my own. Even though it's been a bit since my own cloth diapering days, my cloth diaper posts are still some of the most popular here on the blog. After over 4 years of using cloth on my girls and with my title of a blogger I was able to experience a ton of different cloth diapers through reviews [really, quite a few - check out my extensive catalog of cloth diaper reviews here] and had the experience of cloth diapering both my girls as newborns, infants, and even toddlers. But perhaps the time when parents have the most questions about cloth diapers is before they even start! That's why I'm sharing the Best Cloth Diapers for New Parents today! Cloth Diapering can seem totally overwhelming at first glance - … [Read more...]
