Sweet Spud- Review and Giveaway


Sweet Spud is a collection of organic cotton apparel with inspiring quotes and graphics made just for your baby. We love these tees we reviewed the Tree Tee for Kaia that says “My Life is My Message” and the “I want freedom for the full expression of my personality” For Mikey. Both tees are super duper soft and well made. They have gone through multiple washings and have not faded both the image and writing are still perfect with no cracking peeling or fading. The shirts fit true to size and are so comfy. Honetsly I wish they came in my size too. The images and the messages are beautiful and inspiring. I like how they capture what our children are all about. Mikey’s shirt may as well have been made just for him the quote is so perfect. And Kaia’s shirt works for every child out there as well. Yet they are still unique and when I see them in their shirts I just think how well these shirts fit them not only physically but spiritually as well.

About Sweet Spud:
Sweet Spud’s apparel is made of organic cotton certified by Global Organic Trade Standards (GOTS). GOTS is a leading campaigning and certification organization that has been working to promote sustainable organic farming since it evolved in 2002. All of Sweet Spud’s clothing has been produced and processed following the strictest environmental standards.

Spud screen printing: Our designs are printed in an environmentally friendly way with water-based, phthalate-free inks. Not only is the print soft on the environment, but it is also soft to the touch. Conventional screen printing methods involve the use of plastisol inks which have been described as one of the most environmentally damaging plastics. In 2008, hundreds of parents reported chemical-like burns on their baby’s backs. These burns were caused by tagless labels printed with PVC and plastisol inks. That’s a no-no for us!

Spud packaging: Sweet Spud’s goods come delivered in a 100% recycled/recyclable box and wrapped in tissue paper that is made of 100% recycled fibers; both are made in the U.S.A. Our items are shipped without any excess packaging, but still look so incredibly sweet!

Goddess Garden Review and Giveaway- Natural Sunscreen Line


Mikey has incredibly sensitive skin he actually broke out last week when I tried a very popular kids sunscreen line. I am no longer using the big brands and have decided for Mikey and Kaia it is important to go with a natural sunscreen line that is made to keep babies skin feeling great and protected from the sun. I used Goddess Garden Baby Natural Sunscreen on Mikey and he did not have any allergic reaction we were thrilled. It is hard when you have kids that are so fair skinned that need sunscreen yet they have super duper sensitive skin. Along with the Natural Baby Sunscreen we used the kids UV Bracelet. I actually put it on Mikey’s Ankle so I wouldn’t have to worry about him taking it off. It was great I coated it with the sunscreen as well so I knew exactly when I needed to reapply sunscreen. Kaia tried the kids line and did great as well. I like the spray bottle sunscreen it made applying it very quick. The little travel size sunscreens are great for keeping in the diaper bag or car so you always have sunscreen on you. This is definitely a great line of sunscreen we were out all day at the zoo and neither of the kids got burnt at all. We had fun and didn’t have to worry to much about the sun since the bracelets were a nice reminder of when to reapply.

Lotus Cleaning System (RV$219) Review and Giveaway

And the Winner IS: trishden


I am always on the lookout for safe and eco-friendly cleanersand products. I have found a great one I was thrilled to test out the Lotus Cleaning System. Not only is it great for sanitizing your countertops and floors. It’s great for baby items like pacifiers and bottles, And my favorite your fruits and veggies too. The Lotus Cleaning System neutralizes pesticides and cleans your fruits and veggies so you can be sure they are healthy and perfect for eating. There is a cool screen that lets you know the progress of the cleaning so you know when the Lotus Cleaning System is cone. The bowl and spray bottle are interchangeable so you can use both with the base. What I like best about this system is the size of the bowl. I had bought a sanitizer for the kids nursery which looked spacious and like there would be plenty of room from all the pictures. When I received it I was surprised to find that I could barely fit two SMALL bottles in at a time. With the Lotus Cleaning System that is not an issue the bowl is huge so you have plenty of room for all the fruits and veggies you want in there. As for Nursery items bottles, pacifiers etc. once again you have more than enough room to fit a bunch inside. The Spray bottle component is fantastic it holds enough to clean all my kitchen countertops. I like that I can use this around the kids with no worries about them coming into contact with any harmful chemicals. It is completely safe you can even buy an attachment for a pitcher so you can drink the water after it has gone through the Lotus Cleaning System.

How does the lotus® Home Cleaning System work?
The system has two main purposes:
1.To clean and sanitize surfaces.
2.To remove pesticides and kill germs on food.
It does this using ordinary tap water. The lotus® patented Oxyshield® technology infuses cold tap water with an extra oxygen atom, creating a natural sanitizer. By passing air through 4,500 volts of electricity, the lotus® system splits oxygen molecules into atoms and forces this extra atom to combine and form super-oxygen. The third oxygen atom becomes the sanitizing agent, a natural oxidant — which kills bacteria and viruses, and neutralizes pesticides.


Buy It: You can purchase the Lotus Cleaning System on the Tersano site.

Win It: One lucky reader will win a Lotus Cleaning System (Rv$219) To enter FIRST YOU MUST BE A FOLLOWER OF MY BLOG VIA GOOGLE FRIEND CONNECT. Next visit Lotus Cleaning System site and tell me something you learned.

PlanetBox Lunch Transportation for the Green Generation Review


Kaia has a new favorite eco-friendly lunchbox and I think it may be my favorite too. Our new PlanetBox lunch bag is magnificent for several reasons. First you can design it in different ways Kaia chose the pretty horse and rainbow design but when she decides she wants a different design changing is so easy we just swap out the magnets for a new design. The PlanetBox lunch box is made of food grade stainless steel material it had wonderful compartments that are actually my favorite part of the lunch bag. The compartments were made with specific foods in mind so that you have perfect portions and you don’t forget any food group. The “dipping” containers are magnificent I have actually had issues with other stainless steel containers like these they were not leak proof but with the PlanetBox containers they have a silicone ring to keep them spill proof, and it actually works! Plus the different containers really do keep everything separate. The carrybag keeps everything cold or hot and you can of course put a ice pack in it if you need to. The outside has a pouch for a drink and a pocket that you can use for a snack or for a reusable cloth napkin. We love PlanetBox and will definitely be getting one for Mikey when he starts school.

Buy It: You can purchase PlanetBox products on the PlanetBox site.
