REVIEW: Ecostore USA

eusa_laundrypowder

{ disclosure: samples received } I recently had a chance to sample some products from Ecostore USA and I was really excited to try this line from New Zealand that touted full disclosure with regards to its ingredients list as well as being affordable.  Not to mention I was told it would be soon widely available in my neck of the woods.  You know, for those moments of — I just ran out of detergent, don’t have time to wait for an internet order to arrive.  You’ve gotta love the back story of how the company started.  Founded over 15 years […]

Being Thankful…

This thanksgiving… there is so much to be thankful for.  During my daily routine lately, I’ve been often struck with thoughts of just how lucky I am.  Take for instance, a couple days a week I study at my neighborhood public library, taking advance of their free wi-fi.  I sit here with my laptop while a line is forming to use the computers the library provides for 30 minute intervals.  It never occurs to me that many are without this luxury I take for granted.  Many don’t have a computer, let alone high-speed internet access which I consider a staple, […]

My Greener Nursery

m_nursery

A true labor of love, my DH built this magnificent furniture piece for our soon to arrive son, Marcus.  The story behind this piece of furniture starts with a pregnancy fraught with problems.  I had a pre-existing history of difficult pregnancies, placing me in the high risk category and this one was no exception.  Following our amniocentesis, our son was diagnosed with a rare chromosomal deletion where little or no information was available.  Already on pins and needles embarking on this journey again, this news devastated our family.  Subjecting ourselves as guinea pigs, we under went one genetics test after another […]

Big City Mom’s BIGGEST Baby Shower Ever!

bugaboo-red

{ disclosure : self paid ticketed event, no discount or incentives received } Yes despite an aggravated pubic bone, nothing was stopping me from attending the BCM Biggest Baby Shower Ever ~ I now had a legitimate reason to attend!  Later I learned you didn’t even need to have one from the bevy of my blogger mommy friends who were in attendance.  Well I attended as a guest with my due date partner in crime and we had an amazing time!  This event was so so much fun and so well put together.  From the moment we walked in through the American […]

BOOK REVIEW: That's Why We Don't Eat Animals

{ disclosure : author contacted directly, self-bought book, no discount or incentives received } When I was told to check out this book, I was intrigued.  You see, I’m not a vegetarian, but not for lack of trying on my parents part.  It did successfully rub off on my sister who has been one since the tender age of 5 years old.  Through out her life she’s had to respond to questions like why doesn’t she eat meat?  What kind of vegetarian are you?  Do you eat fish?  Do you eat eggs?  It never bothered her to answer these questions before, […]

Rock On!

rocklove

{ disclosure : self-purchased, no discount or incentive received } When I saw these teethers,  I had to have them!  Yea I admit, not even for baby.  They were soooo cool looking I completely skipped the whole teether bit.  They fondly reminded me of an old wooden rabbit nesting puzzle I had loved as a child – aged with beauty.  Resembling slightly like pretzels, probably to induce some good teething reflexes out of the babe, they are made from FSC certified cherry wood and finished with all-natural bees wax.   Sold as a set of three ($38) or individually ($17), they come in a […]

REVIEW: Weil Baby Products

weil

{ disclosure : samples received and coupons for free products were given to guests } This past weekend I hosted a Dr. Andrew Weil Baby House Party with some of my pregger and mommy friends.  With all the hype over the BPA controversy — which I hope isn’t a controversy anymore — I was shocked to find out that many new, first time moms and mommies-to-be had no idea about the dangers of BPA!  Yes, I was even disappointed in myself, being their friend, not bringing it up sooner amongst all our talks about breastfeeding and getting ready for baby… how did […]

A few constants

IMG_0477

There are a few constants that you know just always will be.  Things like how much you’ll always love your children or  how you’ll always forget one thing during your vacation packing and $20 will always be $20.  One thing that I can count on with Ava and my nephew is that their love for bubbles will never wane.  They jump for joy for bubbles at school, at birthday parties and go nuts when we’re outdoors for them.   I have found myself wandering Target, Toys R Us and drugstore’s on more than several occasions this year looking for bubble […]
