Choose An Organic Crib Mattress for Your Green Baby

NaturalMat Latex Mattress

I received an organic crib mattress from Naturalmat to facilitate this review.  All opinions expressed are my own. This past weekend I shared a post on 7 easy ways to make your toddler green and today I'm sharing with you a switch that my family just made to make Moreaya more green! We bought our first crib mattress literally weeks from finding out I was pregnant with Sophia.  It was the first baby purchase that we made, actually my parents bought it for us, and I was ecstatic to have my first baby thing in her soon-to-be nursery!  I remember my Mom asking me if I had a preference on a mattress and I honestly didn't have a clue about mattresses, so I told her just pick one it didn't matter. Obviously it worked just fine - it went through now 2 children, but had I known then what I know now about a crib mattress and their … [Read more...]

Roxy

This is a sponsored post on behalf of Sergeant’s and Mom It Forward.  All opinions expressed are my own. Y'all are well aware of my 2 girls - I share stories and pictures of them all the time, but you may be surprised to know that my husband actually has to deal with FOUR of us girls on a daily basis! Meet Roxy - my girl that has been in my life for THIRTEEN years now! She's a big cat with a big heart.  She's lived with me when I was away at college and moved back with me when I came back to my hometown.  Now she shares her house [oh, you know how cats are] with all of us.  She did wonderful when both of the girls were born and really has never had any major issues since we rescued her as a stray cat 13 years ago! But what happens when you bring a cat or kitten into your house and it doesn't go so well?  Sergeant’s created a … [Read more...]

Bedding Battle: Creating a Vintage Chic Look on a Budget

Brylane Home Vintage Chic

I received product for review to facilitate this post.  All opinions are my own. I often feel totally blessed to be working from home, writing a blog that I love, and having the chance to review some amazing products from some of my favorite companies.  But one of my favorite things that I've been able to do over the past 3 years of writing on So Easy Being Green is to bless my loved ones with some of the same opportunities! When Brylane Home shared their fabulous bedding section with me, I knew  I didn't have a need for a new set, but I knew someone who did... my Mom!  She had been asking for help picking out a new bedding set for their guest bedroom for awhile and we hadn't had a chance to go shopping, so when this opportunity came by - I knew it was perfect for her! After looking at the extensive amounts of bedding products … [Read more...]

Sprucing Up Outdoors This Spring with Dollar General

Dollar General Outdoors

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Dollar General for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine. The birds are chirping, there are butterflies fluttering by my window, and I can see the buds of lilacs and tulips getting ready to burst open here in east Tennessee.  And other than wishing the pollen count was a bit lower, I couldn't be happier! Spring brings with it a resurgence of life, an excitement for being outside, and definitely a need for planting beautiful flowers!  I just can't resist putting together a lovely, colorful pot of flowers on the table when I catch Spring Fever! This year, I headed to my local Dollar General to do just that.  I already had a lovely purple Hyacinth that I wanted to enjoy the blooms inside before I planted it outside for it to come back year after … [Read more...]

Get Swimsuit Ready with Kaeng Raeng’s All Natural Cleanse

Kaeng Raeng Collage

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Kaeng Raeng for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine. It's definitely true that I need to get in gear to get swimsuit ready.  We're going on a Family Vacation to a Florida Beach in just under 2 months and honestly, I am not there.  I've started an exercise program to get me in shape and ready for a run/walk race in July, but my diet is not where it should be. I try to eat healthy, I really really do.  But sometimes convenience foods are, well, just too convenient.  But since I started using my new blender, I've really been doing better at my intake of raw fruits and vegetables and I've had additional support from Kaeng Raeng lately too! Kaeng Raeng is an all natural product that is vegan, gluten, caffeine, and soy free.  Their meal replacement pouches contain NO artificial … [Read more...]

Fill your Easter Eggs with YumEarth Organic Candy #Giveaway

YumEarth Easter Giveaway.jpg

We're just a couple weeks away from Easter and if you're like me, I'm already trying to figure out what I'll be putting in my girls' Easter Eggs and Baskets! Luckily, I received a package of YumEarth Organic Candy, perfectly decorated in Easter packaging this week [free for review].  To say my girls will be excited when they open up Easter Eggs filled with Gummy Bears and Fruit Snacks is definitely an under statement.  My girls get so excited when they see YumEarth packages come inside the house... almost as much as me. You see, not only do I love YumEarth Candy because it's organic and contains all natural ingredients - no artificial dyes or coloring!  So I can feel good about giving them the candy, but the other reason I love YumEarth?  It's delicious! I enjoy the gummy bears about as much as the girls do!  So that's why … [Read more...]

All Natural Skin Care Products from PUR Body Spa

PUR Body Spa Scrub

I received compensation and product to facilitate this review.  All opinions expressed are 100% my own. I am not good at taking care of my skin.  Horrible, in fact.  I wish I could blame it on being a busy Mom, but it's gone back way longer than that.  I never really got in a good skin care routine, well, ever.  I've tried, I really have.  I have bought skin care products, but most end up getting passed to my Mom who loves them!  She's always encouraged me to take better care of my skin, warns me that I'll regret it in the future and I know she's probably right, but... I'm full of excuses! That's why when PUR Body Spa contacted me about their products, I figured I would give them a try and probably even like them, but wouldn't keep up the routine and they'd go to my Mom too. PUR Body Spa sent along their Mini Facial Kit [the same … [Read more...]

Go Green with American Greetings Video eCards

American Greetings Paradise.jpg

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of eCards from American Greetings for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine. It seems that sending Greeting Cards is a lost art.  On the green side, I don't purchase cards often unless they're for a super special occassion and I know the recipient will cherish and keep them.  But, I do realize that they mean so much to people - a little reminder that someone is thinking about you. That is why I am totally loving the new American Greetings eCards! Now it's super easy to send a friend or family member a personalized eCard from American Greetings.  I ALWAYS forget friends' birthdays until the day of - which it's totally too late to send a card through snail mail.  This service is perfect, green, and fun!  The best part about these cards is you can send them to your friend or family … [Read more...]
