More Made from Earth Goodies!

It's so important to us as a family to purchase and support businesses that are 100% cruelty free, because we love our pets and wildlife. It's also important to myself as a mom that our home uses as few harmful chemicals as possible, which makes me so happy that I can count on Made from Earth as my go-to place for shampoos, conditioners, body wash, and vitamin c moisturizers, among other things. 

I've recently started using their Tea Tree & Protien Herbal Shampoo, and I must say that it's pretty much like nothing I've ever used before. I really love that it's for all hair types, meaning my husband and myself can both use it and get the same fantastic results. The plant based ingredients leave my hair super clean without drying out my scalp, and I have to also admit that I really love the Tea Tree and Herbal scent left behind after my shower. That wonderful scent gently reminds me that I'll be squeaky all day!

I'm also currently using the Peppermint Herbal Conditioner. Peppermint is a proven scent that relieves stress, which most of us need on a daily basis. This conditioner coats my hair, without leaving  it feeling or looking oily. 

Made from Earth also make a Vitamin E & Citrus Body Gel that is a personal favorite. I've always had a huge crush on anything with a citrus scent, and this is no exception. With ingredients like Organic Aloe Juice and Grapefruit, Lime and Lemon Essential Oils, this body gel cleans wonderfully while leaving you with a light fresh scent. 

What are some of your favorite all natural scents to use in your home ?

Tiny Reminders.

Clean laundry & tiny reminders. Can't wait to start finding Dottie's toys in random places. So ready for her to be home. The holidays will be so sad without her home this year, but Nana and I went shopping yesterday and picked up a tiny tree and Christmas decorations for her NICU room.

Saying Goodbye.

Last weekend we said goodbye to my Granny Reel. At 82 years young, surrounded by her two kids and myself, she passed away peacefully and comfortably in her hospital bed. 

While it's certainly never easy to say goodbye to a loved one, she has six great grandkids and her memory will certainly live on. 

She had a beautiful memorial service, with plenty of stories that made us all laugh, which was specially what she said she always wanted. 

There were lots of lovely yellow flowers, which was her favorite color, and tons of plotted plants sent by friends and family. 

Fannie Mae Reel will be sorely missed, along with her with her fantastic sense of humor. 


Libman's Fight Against Grime Challenge

The Libman Company, the makers of the Freedom Spray Mop, asked me to show you all my messiest room. They have challenged me to take a before picture of the room, use their products to clean, and share the results. 

Libman made it clear that they want to see what the room really looks like behind-the-scenes, no staging here folks!

So I present to you what our bathroom looks like on a typical weekday morning.

As you can see, we have clothes flowing out of the hamper, towels not put up neatly, the toilet paper roll ever so elegantly not where it belongs on the dispenser, and husband/toddler/dog hair all over the bathroom floor (which unfortunately you can't see but trust me is there.) 

Having a 19-month-old toddler and a baby in the NICU, most my time I have to admit, is not spent cleaning. It's typically spent on feeding babies, bedtime stories, brushing teeth and nighty night time.

What I really love about the Libmen Freedom Spray Mop, is that it is easy to use, it comes with machine washable cleaning pads that you can wash up to 100 times, and these cleaning pads really do the trick as far as getting in the deep crevices of our bathroom tile. It also only took me just about 2 minutes to clean our fairly large bathroom floor. Big plus in this mama's book! The Freedom Spray Mop is extremely lightweight, making it much easier to use than other brands of similar mops I've tried in the past. Also, did I mention that this mop doesn't need batteries? Can I get an Amen!? I LOVE that! 

I used the Libman Freedom Mop Spray Multi-Surface concentrated floor cleaner in the citrus scent to clean my bathroom floors.

Libman also offers a wood floor cleaner, which I haven't had the pleasure to use since we don't have wood floors. Maybe one day, since installing wood floors is definitely on my home project list. 

Check out all that the reusable mop pad picked up! 

And now for my after photo!
