Switch and Save With Arm & Hammer Toothpaste

Switch and Save With Arm & Hammer Toothpaste

Finding the time to take good care of myself is hard to manage. As many moms know, personal care and beauty tend to fall to the bottom of the ever-growing “to-do” list. I make time to brush and floss twice daily, so I avoid cavities. But maintaining pearly white teeth feels like much more of an effort and a luxury. (Whitening strips and laser treatments aren’t cheap!) Almost every toothpaste claims to whiten nowadays, but I’ve … Read entire article »

Being earth friendly as a mom is a bit harder. Some of my friends use cloth diapers. I admire them for being so eco-friendly, … Read entire article »

Living Like the Lorax

Living Like the Lorax

Since I’m a busy working mom, I love it when companies offer affordable, practical ways to help the environment. Seventh Generation is one of my favorite companies because they offer greener cleaning products that are priced competitively. I recently had a chance to test their Natural 4X Detergent. The formula “uses multiple enzyme systems to fight the toughest stains” according to the folks at Seventh Generation. Honestly, I’m not sure what that means, but I was … Read entire article »

This past weekend at BlogHer, I was given the opportunity to see the film in advance. Based on how much I enjoyed the book, I was weary of how … Read entire article »
