There are some things that warrant a 4 star rating and there are some things that should have never been made! And that high chair is one of them...grrrrrrr..... Don't even get me started on that thing or their customer service which is the most shady thing ever! That's it I will stop their, but for real Do Not Buy that high chair unless you like to pull out each strand of your hair and and hear nails on a chalkboard. If you like that kind of stuff then by all means buy the highchair. The bottle warmer....well done Boon! Well Done!



Getting in the Holiday Spirit: Healthy Gift Giving

Wednesday, November 20, 2013

The holidays seem like they are in full swing everywhere I look. Is it just me or does it feel like the holidays are flying by? Every year I feel like I never have enough time to do all the things I would like to do to celebrate. When I start thinking about it, I start to get really anxious about the whole thing. That's why I am making a conscious effort not to stress over the holidays and just enjoy the true meaning behind Thanksgiving and Christmas. It's very easy to get caught up in all the little trivial things.

Speaking of those little trivial things gift giving is one thing I will do. I love selecting and finding the most perfect gift for someone. I compiled a few things that I will be giving this year. I titled it healthy gift giving, because all of these things in some form or another are good for the earth and you. Plus, I have tried or bought everything up there for me or someone and can vouch for the quality of each. I hate just buying junk. I mean I wouldn't buy it for my self, so why would I buy it for anyone else?

Too good not to share...

I have a major sweet tooth! If you would ask my husband he would say that was a huge understatement. I kid you not when I was pregnant with Scarlett I had something sweet (cookie, brownies, name it) for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. And yes I gained way to much weight, but I was sooo one of those people that was like hey I'm pregnant I can eat whatever I want. With the next baby I plan to be a bit more healthy...hopefully, but when cravings call you have to answer to them! Duh! That leads me to my latest and greatest discovery. Goodbody Baked goods! Holy moly these things are sooooo goood! I was at the grocery store picking up my typical Hail Merry indulgences when I spotted these things. With only a few ingredients and that include almond and coconut flours and no gluten, dairy, or grains! Yippee! I thought for sure when I got home they would be icky and I would have gotten the stink eye from my husband that I bought these. I was so pleasantly surprised, not only were they better then a cookie they satisfied my sweet tooth with just one piece. Please try these if you are suffering from the same sweet tooth disease I am. Your taste buds will surely thank you!

The Beauty Files: A face mask

Wednesday, November 6, 2013

 I thought I would share one of my favorite face masks that I use weekly! I'm not sure where I got this recipe (I want to say Whole Foods??), but I have been doing it for a couple years now. It always does the trick and is oh so good for your skin.

You will need:

Mix 5 or 6 teaspoons depending how dry you are of raw honey with 2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar and lemon juice. I mix mine in a ceremic bowl. After all of the above is combined put on your pretty little face for about 10 mins or so. Rinse with cool water and a wash cloth and you are done! Enjoy! Do you have any favorite homemade beauty recipes?

Halloween Recap

Tuesday, November 5, 2013

We had such an amazing time this year! It was so special to see Scarlett dressed up in her costume! She was a bunny, that her Memaw so kindly made her. It's something I will never forget (you never forget the handmade things). Although, Scarlett did not actually go from house to house trick or treating. We enjoyed a get together at my neighbors house and visited grandparents. The only thing I would change about the whole experience is to make it last a little bit longer. This time thing goes by way to fast!
