    Clean Beauty: Part 4 – DIY Pregnancy Care Package

    Note: This post was inspired by a dear, expecting friend of mine who I wanted to pamper with some nontoxic goodies! That being said, each of the products I selected for her can be used by anyone, man or woman, expecting or not! Nothing here is “maternity specific”. That’s the true beauty of going clean 😉 Of course, if you are pregnant, please be sure to research each of the products and ensure they are approved by your doctor. While Baby Showers are amazing opportunities to bless the expecting couple with all of the gizmos and gadgets they need to prepare themselves for the wonderful chaos of parenthood, I’ve always…

Two–day shipping has become my way of life. And let’s not get started on how many boxes my husband and I have to break down every week to keep our house from looking like UPS Prime has become such a phenomenon that it’s all over YouTube as well! So, it’s no surprise that after non-stop binging YouTube ‘Amazon Favorites’ videos, I want to share my must haves, too! My picks are kind of random and don’t fit into any one category,…

    Packing made easy: Toddler Edition

    Packing has never been my favorite…I have this overwhelming urge to bring EVERYTHING! And…on many occasions, I have! Enter: Babies. Now, I definitely didn’t want to find myself in a situation where I was unprepared. My family has taken several road trips over the past few years and last year I decided (with lots of hints from my husband) to use a few of these trips to experiment in minimalism. Or normalism…not quite sure of the phrasing there. Last Thanksgiving, I actually managed to actually under pack and didn’t have enough clothing to get me through the trip without doing laundry – it was a (semi-stressful) victory! Here are my…
