Simplifying No Poo with Mirasol Farm

Guys, I have a confession: I was sick of the natural beauty routine that made my hair feel both dry and waxy at different intervals between showers. I could tweak forever and play with different methods, but I just want to live an easy life free of chemicals in which my hair still looks fabulous. In a moment of desperation I reached out to Mirasol Farm and begged them to send me more of their fabulous herbal shampoo bar. It seriously does wonders. The herbal shampoo bar from Mirasol Farm is top notch. No matter where I've bathed, no matter the water source... My hair always comes out looking and feeling fabulous. It's important for me to … [Read more...]

Adding Fun to Our Bathtime Routine with Daddy & Company

This three-day weekend was a real doozy for us. The heat down in Florida makes living in the outside world hard, even for us natives! It's a guarentee that if we do decide to venture out into the world everyone is going to come home slightly frustrated and hella stinky. The only cure is a cool shower and a nap. The kids love bubble baths, but as we get more conscious of our choices in the home bath time has suffered a little. I can't tell you how long it's been since I gave up looking for a reliable bubble bath that was long-lasting, smelled good, and also non-toxic for my little one. I thought that bubble baths were just out for us. With … [Read more...]

Fight Head Lice with the Natural Formula of ClearLice

Back to school season... wooo!By this time most of the nation's kids have began their first weeks of public school and us homeschoolers are sitting around wondering what all the hallabalu is about. (I lie, we're actually quite thankful because the parks are quiet.) Moms all over are rejoicing for bittersweet moments of peace and quiet and alone time. Unfortunately this back-to-school business can stimulate other seasonal issues... like head lice. August is peak season for lice infestations because children spend more time with other children. And homeschool children are not left out... A full grown louse can live up to 48 hours off of a … [Read more...]

Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff with Tom’s of Maine

Disclaimer: I am a member of the Collective Bias®  Social Fabric® Community.  This shop has been compensated as part of a social shopper amplification for #CollectiveBias and its advertiser. I struggle with my armpits. Shaving them makes them hurt and most deodorants make them itch and flake. It's always been a constant struggle to find a long-lasting deodorant that will keel me feeling fresh and help me battle the sweltering Florida summers. With all the splash pads, theme parks, and super fun outdoor playdates planned the last thing I want to worry about is whether or not I smell bad. Luckily Tom's of Maine makes a great natural deodorant … [Read more...]

No Poo and Hard Water… It’s “Harder” Than It Looks!

I've been no pooing off and on for the better part of four years. It all started with a desire for less maintenance overall. I had just gotten officially separated from my ex-husband and I was rebelling against his idea of the the perfect woman... who happens to also conform to all of the normal society expectations like wearing make-up, shaving, and spending hours worrying about what everyone else thought of you based on appearances. If you know me at all, you might have a clear picture as to why we couldn't possibly fall in love. Go figure! Anyhow, I just dove in one day and was like "Yeah no poo!" I started with the regular regime of … [Read more...]

Help a Sister Out with Softcup!

The dreaded postpartum period. Regardless of your decisions for the new baby's nutrition, there will eventually come a time where your period will come back and you will remember all the reasons it sucks to not actually be pregnant. For some women it's four months. The average for breastfeeding women is 7 months, and then you have the lucky ones who make it all the way past a year before ever showing signs of their cycle returning. But eventually it does come back. Drats! We talked a little last year about how horrible disposable pads and tampons were for both you and the environment. I was trying to convince everyone to make the switch to … [Read more...]

How to Make Homemade Neosporin

As my oldest daughter grows older, she has become an accident waiting to happen. (She takes after her clumsy aunt.) She's always had a rough side to her, and she's so curious and exploratory that it's not abnormal for her to get hurt or come to me with a new injury to document her conquests. We're a big band-aid family, often exploring the different styles and patterns in the medicine isle. But instead of also splurging on Neosporin to use to aid the healing process, I have discovered an easy way to make an all-natural alternative. All of the ingredients in the recipe below work together to create a really powerful healing salve similar to … [Read more...]

Show Your Baby’s Style with Bibdanas

I don't get the chance to meet up with the lovely ladies of my babywearing group often. I haven't been since the frantic holiday play date in early December. You'd think since I have my own car now that I'd be all over the place. I am all over the place, I just never wind up at the meetings. I have no excuse other than I prefer the smaller, quieter get-togethers. During my last appearance among the other babywearing mamas in my community, one of the little toddler boys playing in the park had an adorable scarf on. It was simple and it brought his entire outfit to inspire awe. Since I'm also friends with this mama on instagram, I got to see … [Read more...]

Custom Crunchy Wear with Allied Shirts

I have been searching and searching for a way to get my hands on some fabulous activism clothing. You can find a plethora of styles and statements depending on what issues you are dressing for, but I personally always get discouraged while shopping online for things because I want them to be tailored to my specific interests. When Allied Shirts offered me a chance to review their tee shirt customization process I thought it would be the perfect time to let my lactivsim shine! (Lactivism: advocacy of breastfeeding.) I was originally looking to give Breastfeeding Place a little shoutout and so I designed a beautiful shirt picturing a … [Read more...]
