Stonyfield Organic Yogurt Pouches for #RealLifeMoments

Stonyfield Pouches Giveaway.jpg

I am a #StonyfieldBlogger and often get perks for being one.  I only share the brand because I am completely in love with their yogurt and all opinions expressed are 100% my own!  As a Mom Blogger, you often see little peeks in my life - sometimes big peeks.  I blog about my household, my kiddos, and our daily lives.  I share glimpses into our regular and not-so-regular days on instagram.  But I don't always share #RealLifeMoments with you.  Why?  Because we're in the moment and I usually don't look camera ready and the girls have chocolate-stained faces. Those Real Life Moments are what makes parenting worth it all, though, right?!  Those life moments when you're running around the house chasing a half naked toddler with your pajamas still on at 3 in the afternoon.  So, on those days, sure I could go in the kitchen and channel … [Read more...]

toxinfighterbadge

I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Seventh Generation. I received a promotional item and product samples as a thank you for participating. #FightToxins It's time for reform in America! No, I'm not getting all political with you today, I've recently become a Freedom Fighter... a Toxin Freedom Fighter!  It's time for chemical reform in our country and let me tell you why! Did you know that more than 80,000 chemicals available in the US have never been fully tested for their toxic effects on our health and environment?! We're hit with 300 toxins before we're even born!? Early exposure to chemicals can lead to Cancer and Alzheimer's?! The Toxic Substances Control Act was passed in 1976 and hasn't been updated since!? Staggering, I tell you.  So it's time for chemical reform and it's super … [Read more...]

Dino Lingo – Language Learning Program for Kids – Full Set #Giveaway – WW

Dino Lingo March Giveaway.jpg

This giveaway is sponsored by Dino Lingo.  All opinions expressed are 100% my own. I've reviewed quite a few products over the 3 years that I've been blogging here on So Easy Being Green.  Many of those were focused on my girls - which isn't a huge surprise since most of my life is focused on them too!  There have been a lot of products that I've loved, but only a few that I can easily name right off the top of my head as our favorites and Dino Lingo is definitely one of those few! The Dino Lingo system came into our family at the perfect time for my girls.  Sophia had just started becoming interested in learning Tagalog, the first language of her Dad who is Filipino.  Moreaya was at a perfect age to learn a new language and both girls were head over heels for dinosaurs.  Funny, but true - they're a bit dino obsessed! So to … [Read more...]

Introducing the SwaddleClub from SwaddleDesigns

Swaddles

I was provided with product to facilitate this review.  All opinions are my own. SwaddleClub Although I no longer have itty bitty babies to swaddle of my own, I am still totally in love with swaddle blankets.  I know, it's a bit of an odd obsession, but I can't resist swooning over their softness and adorable prints.  And if you invite me to your Baby Shower, you can about bet that you'll be getting some sort of swaddles from me! The lucky recipient of these amazingly, beautiful muslin swaddle blankets will be my husband's aunt.  She's expecting her first baby boy and I just had to spoil the little man with an adorable set from SwaddleDesigns!

[a review of] Buttons Diapers Large Wet/Dry Bag

DSC_5997

I received product to facilitate this review.  All opinions expressed are my own. Picture it... (yes, that was a Golden Girls reference) Valentine's Day, 2014... You've gotten yourself up and ready, you've gotten all three kids (2 & under) up, fed, diapers changed, dressed in the perfect coordinating outfits that it took you all night to pick out, teeth brushed (where applicable), and hair fixed. But most importantly, you are going to be ON TIME for your appointment for their Valentine's Day portrait shoot, which is a HUGE thing in your house.   You get there and walk in and things are going great. Kids are on their best behavior even while waiting for their turn. The photographer calls you back finally and says she will start with getting a shot of all three of them together. She takes the older two while you begin … [Read more...]

Embracing My Fashionable Mom Side with Kohl’s Spring Trends

Pink Lace Top

I participated in an Ambassador program on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Kohl’s. I received Kohl’s gift cards and sample pieces to facilitate my posts and as a thank you for participating. When I became a Mom, all sense of fashion that I kind of had, went out the door.  I've never been a fashion forward type, but yoga pants and tshirts certainly took over my closet.  Even when Rob and I would go out on a rare date night, I would just try to jazz up a plain jane pair of jeans.  I didn't feel good about my outward appearance and my closet reflected that. Not anymore! I'm teaming up with Kohl's this Spring to change that, though!  With a little help and a whole lot of fashionable choices, I'm re-training my brain and refilling my closet with the hottest trends of the season.  It's enough to make this Mom excited about … [Read more...]

Breakfast at Home or On the Go with Nutri-Grain® Fruit & Oat Harvest Cereal Bars

Nutrigrain At Home or Away

I participated in an Influencer Program on behalf of Mom Central (#MC) for Nutri-Grain. I received product samples and promotional item to thank me for participating. I admit, most days I get to sit at home and eat breakfast at our dining table with my girls.  It's so nice and I cherish those moments together.  But, I know they won't last forever because as the girls get older, schedules get busier. Right now Sophia goes to school 2 days a week.  On days that I take her, I have to get all 3 of us ready and out the door by 7:30 am and there's just no time for me to sit down with the girls for breakfast on those days.  I'm busy laying out their clothes, packing her bento lunch, and making sure they are fed. So, on those days it really is nice to have a breakfast that is portable and I've been choosing to grab the … [Read more...]

4 Tips for Helping Kids Deal with Daylight Savings Time Recovery

4 Tips Sleeping.jpg

I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting  (#MC) for Zarbee’s Naturals. I received product samples and a promotional item as a thank you for participating. As I sit here writing this post about Tips for Recovering from Daylight Savings Time, I myself am a little more tired than normal because my girls didn't get the memo! And I know I'm not alone!  Just from scrolling through my Facebook Newsfeed this morning, I know so many other mothers were in the same boat as me!  Luckily, I have some fabulous tips to help you deal with this bi-yearly behavior!  I say bi-yearly, because all of us parents know that when we Fall Back, our kiddos never sleep that extra hour either, do they!? And if you're one of the lucky ones where your kiddo did sleep the normal amount of time - pat yourself on the back!  But … [Read more...]

Organic Bedding for Babies from Kushies

Latest in Eczema Prevention and Treatment from Eucerin® Baby

Eucerin Baby

This post was inspired by a collaboration between Eucerin and SEBG.  I was sent review products to share with you. All thoughts and opinions are 100% my own. Did you know that up to 20% of children globally suffer from atopic dermatitis—more commonly known as Eczema? That fact is absolutely astounding.  I really never knew anything about Eczema until I had my girls.  I never had any patches or flare ups of my own, but Sophia started having them as a little baby.  Luckily, I have a friend who works in Dermatology and she told me to use, what I like to refer to as my fool-proof Eczema Treatment Strategy.  The combination that includes Aquaphor Healing Ointment usually takes care of flare ups in no time. Recently Eucerin® gave me the opportunity to try their 3 newest products in the Eucerin® Baby line... The Cleansing Relief Body … [Read more...]

Treat Kids’ Colds and Coughs Naturally with Zarbee’s Naturals [+ an exclusive coupon]

Zarbees Naturals

I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting (#MC)for Zarbee’s Naturals. I received product samples and a promotional item as a thank you for participating. I've got Spring Fever and it's pretty obvious.  I've had enough of the cold weather, enough of the snow, and enough of the coughs and colds that keep getting shared around our family and Sophia's preschool friends!  She came home just this week with a bit of a runny nose and a small cough and luckily we had just received a new line of medicines to try from Zarbee's Naturals. I have seen Zarbee's Naturals on the shelves of a nearby Target, but we hadn't actually had the chance to try them yet.  I do remember while I was shopping that I was immediately drawn to the packaging because of the cute Zarbee's bee, though! Zarbee's Naturals was born out of … [Read more...]
