Safer Beauty is Going Mainstream

by Holly on October 13, 2016

Have you seen Beautycounter in Target?



You know what this means right?

Safer beauty is going mainstream! It’s getting easier and easier to attain, and gone are the days of only finding natural skincare at health food stores and risk smelling like patchouli.

Beautycounter at Target is only for a limited time, after which you will have to go to my website to purchase it again. I am so excited about this partnership, as it only proves that women in this country are waking up to the need for safe and non-toxic personal care products.

This subject is particularly important in the month of October when pinkwashing is everywhere. Things that are known to cause cancer are emblazoned with pink ribbons in the name of Breast Cancer Awareness.

Oh no they didn’t! SUGAR FEEDS CANCER


Here’s a question- is anyone NOT aware of breast cancer? Anyone??? Anyone???

What you might not be aware of is that you are increasing your risk when you slather on lotion day after day, wash your face with cleanser that contains petrochemicals, and shampoo your hair with parabens.

You’ve heard about parabens right? A preservative used in everything? Did you know that one study found parabens in 99% of breast cancer tumors? Parabens also increase the expression of many genes that are usually regulated by the natural estrogen estradiol and cause human breast tumor cells to grow and proliferate.

No thank you. Nope. Not on my body. Not in my hair. Not on my skin.

Beautycounter lists parabens as one of the ingredients they will NEVER USE.

I am passionate about this. I would not be spending my time and energy trying to convince you if it didn’t matter. It matters. We can’t control so many things, but we can control what we put on our bodies.

Check out Beautycounter and make the switch to safer cosmetics and personal care products.


MegaFood Kids Reveiw

by Holly on October 8, 2016

Some kids love to take their vitamins- but when they are little, they’re usually in the gummy form. Some parents don’t want their children confusing candy with vitamins, risking them taking too many if given the chance.

And some parents try to avoid gummies for the health of their teeth.

So here is a great option to consider- Vitamins in a powder form! You can stir these into smoothies, add them to baked goods, and mix them into just about anything.



I recently tried MegaFood Nutrient Booster Powders with my boys.

I homeschool them and there are definitely times in the day where I need full attention- so I tried the Kids Daily B Centered and I noticed a difference- especially in my 5 year old’s focus and attention span.

It is also the beginning of cold and flu season, and with a baby in the house we do everything we can to avoid getting sick. I’ve been adding the kids daily immune to a smoothie to bolster their immune systems and keep us all healthy!

A little about the powders:

They are made in the USA with ingredients from family owned organic farms.

MegaFood Nutrient Booster Powders contain NO sugars, sweeteners, flavorings, colorings or preservatives! MegaFood offers three Kids Nutrient Booster Powders to support the health and well-being of children five years of age and older.

• Kids Daily Multi: Kids Daily Multi promotes well-being and healthy development, with organic turmeric, carrots, fresh fruits and 23 essential vitamins and minerals per serving.*

• Kids Daily Immune: Kids Daily Immune, featuring oranges from Uncle Matt’s Organic and elderberry & echinacea, promotes and helps to strengthen a healthy immune response year round.*

• Kids Daily B-Centered: Kids Daily B-Centered featuring Lundberg Family Farms organic brown rice,  provides daily support for mental focus, cognitive function, and a sense of calmness.* Formulated with a full spectrum of FoodState® B Vitamins, this blend supports healthy mental and physical energy levels.*

If you’re looking for a new way to get vitamins into your child’s diet, give MegaFood a try.

Why I Noonday

August 16, 2016

Have you seen Poverty, Inc.? The whole documentary is an eye-opening look at the “business” of giving to poor countries. It is an important film to watch. There’s an interesting segment on orphans, and how many of them end up in orphanages. Most aren’t orphans at all- many of them have at least one living […]

The Best Thing I Packed In My Hospital Bag

July 8, 2016

My labor and delivery went fast. REALLY FAST. Like I was still dressed in street clothes, SHOES and giant earrings fast. So my sister was laughing thinking about all the care I took packing my hospital bag, assuming I had no time to use any of it before the baby came. But two things I […]
