LouAna Coconut Oil Review

IMG_20160301_152402939
LouAna is your one-stop Coconut Oil resource. LouAna (short for “Louisiana”) cooking oils have been a staple in Southern kitchens for over 120 years. Long before Coconut Oil became all the rage, we were in the LouAna kitchen cooking up a storm with it. An easy swap in recipes for butter, shortening or margarine, and a wholesome addition to smoothies, drinks and more, our versatile Coconut Oil has 0 trans fat, 0 cholesterol and no coconut aroma or taste. No wonder LouAna is the #1 seller of coconut oil by volume in America.*

I have been using LouAna coconut oil in pretty much everything. I absolutely love it. From delicious recipes you can find on the LouAna site to my own that I make up. It is really easy to substitute LouAna coconut oil in some of your favorite recipes instead of butter/ shortening etc.

1 cup of ice

2 tbs nut butter (we prefer almond butter or sunflower butter)

1/4 cup dried coconut flakes

1 tsp chia seeds

1/3 cup dark chocolate

Jord Wood Watches

jord-text-dark

Hand-crafted wood timepieces that tell a story. Start the conversation. That is the slogan for Jord Wood Watches. Isn’t it just fantastic. These watches truly are works art. They come in gorgeous wooden boxes that are themselves a work of art. The watch we received is stunning and it really does start conversations. Its not everyday that you see such a beautiful wooden watch that sits like a work of art upon your wrist. The watch itself is pretty light I was surprised at how it fits so comfortably (you can have them custom sized to your wrist). It comes with a scratch resistant mineral glass face, isn’t that just fantastic. I love that this company values sustainability and is so Eco-conscious and that they have shown it can be done with great efficiency. Where we live there is a strong eco movement, sustainability is expected and when you can make that eco friendly product not only consciously but fashionably its a win. And that’s what Jord Watches are they are a win. A win for the person who gets to where these beautiful watches and a win for our environment.

JORD is run by artists, designers, marketers, and minders. We spend our days creating, considering, arguing, and hopefully agreeing. Then they scrap it all for the joy of starting new. They have fun. This is their journey. They are focused on creating timepieces that are modeled after a modern lifestyle. They value sustainability, efficiency, and experiential living. They make their watches for people who don’t just have somewhere to be, they have somewhere to go.

BottomZz Up Potty Training Tool Kit Review

static1.squarespace.com
Traditional potty training can be time consuming, messy, expensive and stressful (and that’s just for the parents)!!? Save your sanity, your wallet and the environment with the revolutionary NEW potty training system from BottomZz Up!

How is it different? BottomZz Up is the only potty training system that allows toddlers to feel the discomfort of their accidents! The 100% cotton potty training underwear features proprietary technology that lets kids feel wet when they are wet, while trapping the pee to prevent leaks and messy clean ups. Perfect for families on-the-go, BottomZz Up offers the consistency, routine and encouragement kids need, day and night, home or out on the town.

The simple, all in one BottomZz Up Potty Training Tool Kit includes everything parents need to smoothly transition a toddler to big kid underpants with Encouragement, Participation and Celebration!

This honestly is the absolute best way to potty train kids successfully. I have potty trained hundreds of kids, no joke. I was a Preschool Teacher for over 10 years and in that time I worked primarily with 2,3, and 4 year olds. I have never and will never recommend pullups. I know their are people who swear by them but I do not. It takes longer to potty train kids, they aren’t good for the environment, and most kids just pee in them because they can;t feel the difference anyway. Kids need to feel the discomfort of having soiled clothing so that they can understand cause and effect and how their bodies are functioning. Pullups absorb what goes into them leaving a child to feel relatively dry that is why it usually takes much longer to potty train using them. I always recommended padded underwear. It was not a perfect solution but it was a solution. Children learned very quickly using this technique. Although it was messy and we went through a lot of outfits. BottomZz Up solves this problem. While your child will feel wet their clothing will not get wet. This is the best solution I have seen to the Potty Training Dilemma. I will be recommending it to all the families of the children I help potty train. My only recommendation to BottomZz Up would be to offer the  underwear  in different sizes. Kids come in different sizes so having size 2,3 and 4 available would help accommodate everyone.

・ 3 Pairs of BottomZz Up potty training underwear

index
The sweetest holiday of them all is here, NATIONAL DONUT DAY is Friday, June 3rd and Entenmann’s wants YOU to celebrate wherever you are!

For the sixth consecutive year, Entenmann’s & The Salvation Army are partnering to celebrate National Donut Day and the rich heritage behind it! To Celebrate in 2016, Entenmann’s is rolling our the NEW Entenmann’s Rich Frosted Party Sprinkled Donut, an iconic treat made just for National Donut Day 2016!

As a part of the National Donut Day festivities, Entenmann’s is hosting a “Win Free Donuts for a Year” Facebook Sweepstakes, awarding 10 Grand Prize winners one year of free Entenmann’s Donuts.

National Donut Day commemorates the “donut lassies,” female Salvation Army volunteers who provided writing supplies, stamps, clothes-mending, home-cooked meals, and of course, donuts, for soldiers on the front lines. With limited resources, these treats were fried, only seven at a time. The Salvation Army’s Ensign, Margaret Sheldon and Adjutant Helen Purviance, cleverly thought of frying donuts in soldiers’ helmets. Approximately 250 Salvation Army volunteers provided assistance to American soldiers in France, starting in 1917 during WWI. Entenmann’s ® Bakery produces more than 780 million donuts a year to keep up with the demands of Entenmann’s donut lovers nationwide. The Rich Frosted Donut has been Entenmann’s ® #1 seller since its introduction in 1973. The Salvation Army is located in more than 120 countries worldwide. In 2015, nearly 30 million Americans received assistance from The Salvation Army’s 3,500 officers,60,700 employees and 3.5 million volunteers.
