All-natural everything seems to be everywhere with the recent increase in attention by consumers looking to find healthier alternatives to food and personal care products that can sometimes be chock full of synthetic and chemical ingredients. There are many oral care products that have caught my attention recently so I’ve been trying some of them to see what the fuss is all about.

A brand my family is currently using is the Dr. Sheffield’s All Natural Toothpaste product line. There’s a variety for just about anyone whether they have sensitive teeth, want to use an activated charcoal toothpaste, or still prefer a fresh minty variety just without the harsher chemical ingredients that can be found in many other toothpaste brands.

Beauty Brite Disclosure

It’s no secret that I adore houseplants, I even created a separate Instagram account just for my obsession! When I first became obsessed with houseplants, I started out with spider plants, pothos, arrowhead plants and african violets. At the time, I had no idea houseplants helped clean the indoor air, I just enjoyed the plants in my living space. Over the years, my husband and I moved a lot. We found ourselves moving every few years, so I ended up getting rid of all of my plants and starting over each time we moved!

Whiten Teeth The Natural Non-Toxic Way

Whiten Teeth The Natural Non-Toxic Way - My Magic Mud Whitening Toothpaste and Whitening Tooth Powder

Beauty Brite Disclosure

 

I try to do my best to keep my teeth looking nice. It’s one of the first things I notice about other people, so of course I want others’ first impression of my smile to be a positive one, too. I’ve tried many whitening products, everything from toothpastes and rinses to strips, gels, and lighted systems. Some methods I prefer over others (mostly due to convenience and quickness of use, since I don’t often have time to sit still for lengthier treatments).

I’ve tried most of the whitening toothpastes you can easily find in mass merchandise stores like Walmart, Target and CVS at one time or another. However, when I decide to do a whitening treatment, I usually want something that gives noticable results quickly. And, generally toothpastes whiten gradually over several days or weeks. Which, is fine if you have the time and can remember to use them consistently (and remember to purchase more when you use up your current stash).

I just heard about a totally different kind of teeth whitening product and tried it out. I’ve never seen anything like it before anywhere. My Magic Mud® offers a couple of teeth whitening options that I found interesting — whitening toothpaste and whitening tooth powder. Yes, powder. [read more]

Babies, Baths, and Books: Enrichment for Your Little Ones

Babies, Baths, and Books_ Enrichment for Your Little Ones

Beauty Brite Disclosure

I’m the mom of four young kids but I also have a background in early childhood education, so I know how important enrichment is for growing minds. I’m always looking for fun ways to engage and have fun with my little ones.  What is a better way to have fun and learn then with books and bathtime or water fun?

Finding the best enrichment for Your Little Ones

My children LOVE the water, no matter if its bath time or water play they are all about it. So I’ve come across a few items I’d love to share.

Silicone Squirting Toy

Let’s start with my kids favorite one, and I am going to have to invest in others from Marcus and Marcus because they all love this Squirting Silicone Bath Toy.  What is my favorite thing about this toy? It is the fact that it can actually be taken apart and left to air dry keeping it from growing any gross things inside of it. We have gotten rid of so many bath or pool toys for just this reason, with Marcus and Marcus squirting silicone bath toy my little ones don’t have to worry about getting sick from any gross germs and it also comes in fun other shapes from lion to elephant. It’s so much fun.

Bright Basics ABC Tubbies

Our next product is the Bright Basics ABC Tubbies from Educational Insights. With these floating foam shapes, leaning your animals and letters have never been so much FUN! There are 26 engaging designs that keep your little ones brain growing and using their imagination.  It also helps hand and eye coordination fitting the shapes and letters together.

Sand And Water Fine Motor

Another fun fine motor set of toys is from Learning Resources. The Sand & Water Fine Motor Set improves dexterity when sifting, spinning, and squirting to make hours of fun. A great pack along set for the beach or everyday play.

Musical Duck Race

Our final water toy is the Yookidoo Musical Duck Race. This fun little toy pulls water from your tub to make a fun fountain and race track for your four little ducks. I always call my Little ones my little ducks in a row so this toy is perfect for them! Each little duck toy has its own fun spray. All my kids love this toy even my 5 month old loves to look at it.

You can’t have books, babies, and baths without the BOOKS! So i’ve found some super fun first learning books for your little ones. Reading is so important in our family and it starts at a young age. My oldest is six and is learning to read at school and loves reading to her smaller siblings. She was excited that she can read these books. Sesame Street: 5 Little Rubber Duckies and 10,9,8…Owls Up Late are some amazing first reads.

 Sesame Street 5 Little Rubber Duckies and 10 9 8 Owls Up Late

My son loved counting all the duckies and we even taught him to sing the song, now any time he sees the book he yells ” Ernie loves his duckies mommy!” Grab your copy and learn with Ernie and all his Sesame friends. You will love Sesame Stree: 5 Little Rubber Duckies too.

In 10,9,8… Owls Up Late you countdown to bedtime. My oldest loves reading it to her brothers and sisters to help with getting everyone calmed down. Its a great family book about some little owls who need to go to sleep.  These are some great book choices for you little ones of all ages.

10 9 8 Owls up late

Bringing play and learning together, builds stronger children for tomorrow.

How do you help your kids build a brighter future?

 

Helping Your Kitty To The Loo

Helping Your Kitty To The Loo -- Kitty Box Ramp

Beauty Brite Disclosure

Ok, so no one likes to talk about bathroom issues. Except when it comes to kitty’s litter box. We’ve all got a litter box story, that hilarious one you pull out when you gripe about the cats making a mess…again.

  • – That time Fluffy tried to balance on the side of the box while pooping, lost her balance and fell onto the floor flat on her face.
  • – Or the time the new kitten finally figured out how to use the litter box, but then curled up and fell asleep in it.
  • – And how about the time the chicken you were recuperating from an injury in the mud room decided to roost on the wall of the box and laid an egg in the litter. No, never happened to you? Well, then you haven’t fully lived, my friend. LOL

If you have pets there are going to be times that they need a little extra help with their daily toileting needs whether it’s due to injury, illness, arthritis, or just plain old age infirmity. The Kitty Box Ramp is something I never knew existed, but I wish I had as I just lost a cat who could have really used this kind of assistance. [read more]
