Happy Earth Day. Now Do Something Green.

As a blogger who focuses largely on sustainability over at Green Your Decor and weaves it into this blog as often as possible, I talk and think about sustainability often. As a result, I tend to neglect Earth Day, because I try to be mindful of the Earth every day. (Except when I'm shopping for clothes for me. Then, all [...]

Gifts for Mom that Also Empower Women? Yes, Please!

As much as I wish most people would give to causes and charities without a second thought, I still love the idea of shopping for a cause. At the end of the day, I realize that, for many people, the incentive of getting something while you give is really powerful. This is one of the methods to my madness when [...]

Review: I’m Convinced that Yonanas = Magic

Occasionally, I'll see a commercial for a product that intrigues me, but sets my spidey senses tingling. After all, the entire point of a commercial is to make a product appealing, right? When I saw the commercial for Yonanas months ago, I thought it was innovative, but I was skeptical about any machine being able to turn bananas into something [...]

Mother’s Day Gift Ideas with Style & Meaning

Mother's Day is one of those special holidays when you want to give your mom the world. After all, she brought you into it (and has probably reminded you a few times that she could also "take you out of it!").

Wild Oats Means More Organic Food at Walmart Thumbnail

Wild Oats Means More Organic Food at Walmart

Since the moment I became a Walmart Mom in October of 2008, I have been asking for more organic food options in their stores, mostly because I know that greener products at Walmart tend to be more affordable than everywhere else. So every time a new option is added, I celebrate it. This time, that option is Wild Oats. The [...]

My Spring Fashion Must-Haves

I can't lie: When the seasons change, I have the overwhelming desire to refresh my wardrobe. This year, that's even more true because admittedly, a lot of my pre-pregnancy wardrobe either doesn't fit at all, or just doesn't fit right. So my options are somewhat limited these days.

Colgate Makes Teeth Whitening Super Easy

I admit it: I still use traditional toothpaste. I switched to a natural brand a few years back, but I was not a fan of the taste at all. So we switched back, and Colgate is still our go-to brand.

Beech Nut’s Baby Food is as Simple as it Gets

The World’s Easiest Easter Egg Project

As much as I love Easter and crafting, I've never really gotten into decorating eggs. Honestly, it's just a lot of work. There was that one time a few years back when we dyed our eggs naturally, using food. Yes, food. Think beets, cabbage, onions, etc. That was fun, but it took forever! There was a lot of boiling and [...]
