lil Bums Giveaway

We were provided cloth diapers for review purposes.  All opinions are our own.

Lily Cup Compact Collapsible Menstrual Cup Giveaway

Size A Lily Cup Compact

Just a couple of month's ago, I shared my review of the First Collapsible Menstrual Cup.  If you had told me 4 years ago I would be blogging about menstrual cups, I would have laughed and then turned totally red.  But alas, here I am and I'm bringing up the cup again, but this time just for you! We're a couple of weeks into 2015 but that doesn't mean it's too late to make a Green Resolution.  It's never too late to take small steps to living a better, healthier, green-er life.  That's why I'm giving one lucky reader the chance to have their own green resolution of switching to a menstrual cup in 2015 [or perhaps just a new brand and style if you're already a cup user]! The Lily Cup Compact is my "white pants bestie".  That's the best way to describe this travel-friendly menstrual cup.  It's the same size as a tin of lip balm so you … [Read more...]

A Review of the Lily Cup Compact: The First Collapsible Menstrual Cup

First collapsible Menstrual Cup

It's been awhile since I last talked menstrual cups, but they're still one of the most popular reasons people come to my blog.  I never imagined that I would write about such a subject like this but when something changes your life, literally, you have to share it.  So here I am, continuing to share my love and freedom that has come to my life, all courtesy of menstrual cups. I say those words, of course, with a little tongue in cheek behind them.  I try to make light of a sometimes gloomy subject - our period.  But the thing is, once I started successfully using a cup, I stopped dreading my period so much.  Of course I'm not going to go so far as to say I am happy when Aunt Flo comes to visit, but I don't wallow in self pity because I know the horrible cramps and endless amounts of tampons and bathroom trips. I've been a happy … [Read more...]

Using a Handheld Steamer to Clean Your Couch [+ a review of the HAAN Handheld Steamer All Pro]

HAAN Steam Couch

I'm definitely still on a journey to be more green in my lifestyle choices.  That doesn't mean I'm totally and completely 100% eco-friendly in every choice I make, but that's why I'm striving for.  One of the best green choices I made in the past was to trade in my traditional mop and buckets for a steam mop. Since HAAN was the brand I trusted when I made that switch, I decided that HAAN should be the brand that I use when I made the next switch to cleaning with a handheld steamer.  In fact, HAAN sent me the HS20R Handheld Steamer just a few weeks ago [at no cost to facilitate this review] so I could prepare for an upcoming move! That's right - we've put our house up for sale in hopes of moving just a few miles away to get into a better school district for the girls.  It's a nerve racking experience and one that I was absolutely … [Read more...]
