6 Weeks of Schwarzkopf: Shampoo & Conditioner

Over the last 5 or 6 years, I've become very particular about my hair. This shift happened when I decided to start wearing my naturally curly texture, because the change necessitated a new hair care regimen that took my texture into account. Over the years, I've found products that work well, and I've stuck with them. So when Walmart offered [...]

Review: Huggies Snug & Dry Ultra Diapers

Over the last several months, I've tried a lot of diaper brands. A LOT. And my initial instinct is that they would all work equally well. They'd catch what they were supposed to catch and that would be the end of it. Well, that's somewhat true, but I've found that some brands definitely work better than others — and Huggies is [...]

Better Skin with Burt’s Bees Renewal Products

One of the compliments I've gotten most often over the years is that I have great skin. But what those folks don't know is that my secret is...wait for it... Nothing! That's right. I am notoriously lazy with my skin care regimen. And I get away with being lazy because of good genes. Aside from the cursory wash while I'm [...]

Shea Moisture Baby Products are Our Faves

Remember how I recently said that I tend to be very brand loyal when it comes to the products I support? Well, if there's one brand that could be a case study for that, it would be Shea Moisture.

Shopping for Baby, Part 2

A few weeks ago, I shared that I was trying to break out of my habit of buying the same products over and over again by trying a few new baby products, courtesy of Walmart. There is beauty in being able to go to one store and get pretty much everything I need for baby Juliza, but I never know [...]

Looking for Sustainability Leaders? Look No Further Thumbnail

Looking for Sustainability Leaders? Look No Further

I'd be the first person to tell you that the green movement isn't where it was a few years ago. "Eco-friendly" this and "organic" that was once on the forefront of many people's minds, but the conversations have shifted a bit. I'd like to think it's because so many people are now aware of the need for sustainability that it's [...]

Sing Along with Annie, Plus Twistout for Natural Hair

I grew up watching the 1982 version of Annie, and like the rest of the world, I was captivated by the little redhead who had a way of making everyone smile. I loved the story of this little orphan who found a home in the most unexpected of places, and I loved the music. Fast forward more than 30 years [...]

Shopping for Baby, Part 1

I am a creature of habit. When it comes to shopping, that means I tend to be very brand loyal. Once I find a product that I really like, I stick with it, shopping trip after shopping trip. This is great for the brands that I love, but it means that I rarely try new products or find out if [...]
