    Why We Wash Our Sheets Weekly

    How often do you wash your sheets? Come on, get real with me. Is it once a month? Every other week? Once a week? Not at all?!?!? Whatever the frequency you’re currently working with, I am going to encourage you to make it a habit to wash your sheets weekly. Why? According to The Sleep Foundation, you should wash your sheets once a week.  “Each and every week, most of us spend approximately 49 to 60+ hours sleeping in our beds. That’s a lot of time to get the rest our bodies need to thrive, but it’s also ample time to build up dirt, sweat, oil, and other gunk on our sheets…

The next few months are crucial as a new or once again mom because they set the tone for YOU. When I first had Nolan, I had no idea about natural ways to fight post partum depression and remember nights/early mornings up with a crying baby wondering how was I ever…

    3 Non-Toxic Diaper Brands I Recommend

    Knowing what is in the products that you use for your baby is important.

    My “Healthy Gatorade”

    Imagine a healthy version of Gatorade. That’s Drink LMNT. But even better. Electrolytes are important. But why? These are essential minerals that your body needs in certain amounts to function its best. Electrolytes help conduct electricity through water in the body. Every time we sweat, also comes out the minerals in our bodies so it’s very important to replenish them. My household loves LMNT electrolytes because it’s easy, simple and salt-tayyyy.
