DivaCup- Review and GIVEAWAY!!

Warning: This is not a post for the men on my site...Unless you're that close with your mate that you get her something this awesome or in my case have my husband proof read a post about my experience with the DivaCup- thanks babe!  BTW- my husband added the warning :)

Have you ever forgotten that you have your period in the middle of it?  Been so comfortable and unaware of your protection that you have to remind yourself that you are having your cycle. Well, this happened for the first time in my 20 some years of having a menstrual cycle while trying out the DivaCup. It was truly a product with outstanding results.

Fudgy Vegan Brownies

 Just because I was in the mood for some yummy chocolate brownies and thought you might be too. As usual I made these a bit healthier with whole wheat and oat flour, omitting dairy and eggs and replacing the fat source with coconut oil- if you are new to coconut oil you should check out the nutritional boost it offers and virgin coconut oil imparts a subtle but delicious flavor. Cacao is the purest and healthiest way to add chocolate to recipes. These are really easy to make, taste amazing and are moist and fudgy.

CSA Friday Weeks 5 & 6

What can I say- between the intense summer heat, our weekly Fridays at the farm, kitchen demo and running a few giveaways I missed posting about week 5 so here is week 5 & 6 as a double feature.

We are still loving our trips to the farm and love bringing friends and family to introduce them to the simple joy of being on the farm. Last night I got to bring one of my oldest and dearest friends and he also enjoyed the experience, although boy was it HOT!

I am really looking forward to next weekend as the farm is hosting the first social event, a movie projected onto the side of the barn with food and friends.

So here is week 5;

Loving Naturals Sunscreen and Bug Repellent Review and GIVEAWAY!!

With the summer in full swing the one thing we are reaching for over and over again is our sun protection. Melanoma is pretty common in my family so I take sun protection very seriously for myself and especially my little guys. But these days there is so much news about the chemicals that are running through conventional sunblock and even some ingredients found in natural sunblock, it can be just as scary to slather the kids up with lotion. The EWG has a great site to check up on your sunblock to see if it is safe and effective, but be warned, it is extensive which is both good and daunting/overwhelming.
After doing my own research I decided I wanted to try Loving Naturals and their Adorable Baby sun protection and they were kind enough to offer some products for us to try AND giveaway! Are you excited yet?
