Natural Deodorant? Sign Me Up!

Alright, friends. Let’s take a minute and talk about something we all don’t want to talk about. Body Odour. BO. Pit Stank. Armpit Essence. Whatever you want to call it, it’s a thing, and it happens to the best of us. I, since we’re getting all real and honest here, am one sweaty human. I spent the majority of high school wearing baggy sweaters and nothing but black, in a desperate attempt to not let anyone know that I, like literally every other human on the planet, sweat. So, what do you do about it? You can own it, if...

Make Your Own Baby Wipes!

Make Your Own Baby Wipes!

  Baby wipes. Where once I believed these to be only good for removing poop from the adorable behinds of tiny humans, motherhood quickly taught me that these small squares of goodness are used for so much more. Stick hands? Wipes. Messy faces? Wipes. Questionably clean table? Wipes. Makeup remover? Wipes. A baby wipe is good for so many things, and it’s used on some of the most delicate parts of those little bodies. But have you ever read what’s in them? A quick glance down my regular wipes’ ingredient list had me shaking my head, and looking for a...

Changing the Bum Cream Life!

If there is one thing I hate more than a diaper rash, it’s a diaper rash cream that doesn’t work. You’ve gunked up your hands, smeared cream all over your poor baby’s rashed up tush, and when you open that diaper the next go-around, you’re met with a gooey, pasty mess, and a rash that isn’t gone. None of those things spark the joy I’m supposed to be finding in my motherhood journey. If I’m honest, I’m probably a little slack on the diaper changes - third kid, late to the potty training game, and I’m kind of just over...

Detoxing my Life with the Dead Sea Mud Mask

Detoxing my Life with the Dead Sea Mud Mask

Today, one of my wonderful, delightfully spirited children threw one of those face-down, kicking-and-screaming, blow the ears off anyone who walks by tantrums. In public. One of those tantrums that my pre-child self swore my children would never throw. Especially not in public. And yet there I was, in the entryway of the school, not even wondering why no one has asked me to sit on the PTA. Some days are harder than others. That’s just a fact of motherhood. Some days, there is no winning, no matter how hard you try. So what do you do, on those days...
