    Nontoxic Interior Paint Options + Moodboards For Our New Home

    When I decided to live a more non-toxic lifestyle, I started by majoring in the majors in minoring in the minors. I knew that this was going to be a long journey and if I wanted to do it then I was going to have to be happy with every change that I could make no matter how big or small. Shifting to a more non-toxic lifestyle is definitely not something that I would suggest for anyone to try and do all at once. Non-toxic living is something that I learn more and more about every single day and is a way that you can work to reduce the amount…

    My Top Nontoxic Baby + Kid Products

    My children’s favorite time of the day is BATHTIME! At any mention of the word bath, they are smiling and laughing with each other, trying to strip off their clothes and jump in the tub! They play together and splash around,  I normally always oblige and clean up the water that travels out of the tub and let them play until they are nice and pruney! We don’t have a set schedule for their baths; it just happens organically every day sometimes multiple times a day at that. Whenever their bath time occurs, I know I’m in for lots of bubbles and lots of giggles! Bath time isn’t only fun…
