    AirDoctor Pro Helping Detoxify Our Home

    This post is in partner with AIRDOCTOR, all thoughts and opinions are my own. Please read my disclaimer page for more information. I, like everyone else, loved walking past Bath and Body Works in the mall and catching a whiff of the new scents for winter. Sadly, I found out a few years ago what dangers are actually lurking in their ingredients, so we do not use them. When I started becoming more aware of what I was exposing my family to, I discovered that when you burn a candle, it causes indoor air pollution.

    Mommy and Me Makeup For the Win

    This post is in partner with Just Like Mommy Cosmetics. All thoughts and opinions are my own. Please visit my disclaimer page for more information. My kids have always been curious about my make-up and have gotten into it more times than I can count.

There’s nothing worse than buying a brand new palette or lipstick and seeing it ruined at the hands of a toddler who just wanted to be like mama. To make matters worse, it crushes their spirits when you get upset and fuss…

I love fall for many reasons… it does take a little longer for it to get cooler in the South but camping, visiting the pumpkin patches, decorating our home, going to fall festivals and the fair, drinking hot chocolate by a bonfire and having a s’mores.…

    My “Why”

    A few years ago I began my journey into a more natural life, and one of the ways I started this was by changing my makeup routine. I threw away all of my¬†drug store Maybelline, Cover Girl and even my beloved Clinique products. I did so visiting the Environmental Working Group website and flipping out over how toxic the ingredients were that I was applying to my skin daily! The Skin Deep database¬†is a great online resource that lists the chemical ingredients of thousands of products, and highlights a few of the worst on the list. Be aware that even the Environmental Working Group cautions against jumping to conclusions about…

    How Lark Adventurewear Helps Beat The Heat

    This post is sponsored by Lark Adventurewear. All opinions are my own. Please read my disclaimer page for more information. Our summers get HOT in South Carolina. The humidity and the sweltering heat often keeps us instead unless we’re lucky enough to be beside a body of water. This has also caused me to get creative with the outfits that we wear when we are out and about. I am very thankful for Instagram because I find amazing companies, every single day. One in particular, Lark Adventurewear, was a great find for me because it helps us get to enjoy the outdoors more. Lark Adventurewear is the original activewear that…
