As a homeowner and single mom, I feel stressed and overwhelmed almost daily! Houseplants help me feel less stress in our living space! I also like keeping the look of nature indoors! Caring for plants allows me to feel relaxed and focus on a hobby that brings me peace. As a condo owner, I don’t have my own yard to enjoy nature, so I bring the greenery indoors with my plants! I am very thankful my son always knew not to touch my plants. He seems to keep his distance from them, which I appreciate.

I’m addicted to houseplants mainly because it’s a natural and beautiful way to bring nature indoors. My houseplants give me something to care for, watch grow and thrive. My very first houseplant was a miniature african violet. At the time I had no idea how to take care of it but it came in a wick watering container. Since then, I’ve added new houseplants to my collection! I have always loved houseplants.

3 Ingredient No Bake Hershey’s Pie

As a busy mom, I love making easy meals, snacks, and desserts. Being a chocolate lover, I recently whipped up the 3 Ingredient No Bake Hershey’s Pie and it was a hit! My son and I devoured it. With the holidays coming up, I plan on making this again for us! 

3 Ingredient No Bake Hershey's Pie

A few weeks ago, my son and I celebrated our first Thanksgiving in our new home. With that, I knew I didn’t want to cook and prepare a huge feast since it was just the two of us. So, I was unsure if I would do anything. I ended up buying a pre-prepared holiday meal from a local grocery store. There was a vegan meal offered, so I had to order it. I also bought a pumpkin pie. Little did I know, my son loved the Pumpkin Pie. He also enjoyed eating the vegan roast!

Small, filler-type gifts are one of my favorite things about planning for birthdays and all the different holidays that we love to celebrate. Sometimes these small, inexpensive filler gifts will go into an overall gift basket. But, for Christmas they more often than not are destined for my kids’ Christmas stockings (unless they directly correlate with a larger gift).

For example, if I’m gifting a makeup organizer or beauty bag to one of my daughters, I might purchase bottles of nail polish/polish remover, nail files, eyeliner/mascara/eye shadow, makeup remover pads or other such items to put inside the organizer or bag before wrapping. However, if I’m not gifting a larger item like that, these smaller items will end up in their Christmas stockings along with the small treats or candies.

Some things I buy for stockings every year — a candy cane, chocolate candies like Hershey Kisses, a chocolate santa or reindeer, Christmas-themed suckers, etc. But, I truly thrive on finding totally unique items to also stick in there that I’ve never given before.

Here, I will be sharing some of the fun, unique items that are going into my kids’ stockings this year. They would also work great in gift baskets, too.

I can’t wait to see how they react! The first two items listed are snack foods. Since the holidays are inevitably full of sweet and high-calorie treats, I decided to share two snacks that are not only delicious and full of flavor but also healthy treat options! But, trust me, your loved ones won’t even know it because they will be so bowled over by the flavors.

Step Up And Motivate Your Wellness

After Thanksgiving, I realized how much food we had over a period of a few days! Oh my! And I felt it! A few days after Thanksgiving, I started doing yoga since the weather was overcast and raining for a few days! Yoga allows me to stretch, breathe, de-stress, and focus on my own well-being. The holiday season always reminds me to think about my health and improve wherever I can. Are you ready to step up and motivate your wellness?

Eco-Friendly Toys & Treats Your Pup Will Love

Eco-Friendly Toys & Treats Your Pup Will Love

As a dog mom or current foster dog mom, I only want the best for my little furball. This applies to everything from the food she eats to the toys she destroys; ingredients and materials matter, even for our pets. It’s also why I was excited to try Pure Earth Pets, a monthly subscription box full of eco-friendly toys & treats, and more.

Good for your dog & the planet
Pure Earth Pets eco-friendly toy and treat Subscription Box

Pure Earth Pets does more than curate tasty treats and fun toys for dogs of all sizes. They also only work with companies who care about your pet and the planet. Toys are made from recycled materials and treats feature natural, healthy ingredients. Additionally, each subscription comes to you in a biodegradable box, so you won’t have to worry about it clogging up the landfills.

But what I love most about Pure Earth Pets is the fact that each month they donate a portion of their sales to a pet-centric charity. It’s hard not to support an eco-friendly treat and toy subscription box company that cares so much for our furry friends.

Eco-Friendly Treats & Toys
Eco-friendly toys and more

As I mentioned above, Pure Earth Pets sent me a box full of four eco-friendly treats, a toy, and a pet waste bag dispenser. Of all the items inside, my foster pup, Chipper, was most excited by the toy.

This “Starpups Coffee” stuffed toy is made in the USA from recycled post-consumer materials. It’s machine washable and can be dried in your dryer.

Chippy loved this toy so much that she ripped the stuffing out of it in about ten minutes or so. Of course, in her defense, she is a toy terrorist. I can’t tell you how many tennis balls we go through in a week. Regardless, she loves to play with the remains of the Starpups Coffee toy, which is still intact, minus the stuffing.  

Pet waste dispenser

I was extremely glad to see the Houndscoop Dispenser with 15 heavy-gauge, leakproof bags in the box. The clip on my current poop bag holder had given out so I was in need of a new one. I love that the Houndscoop features a Velcro strap I can easily attach to the leash. I’m also a fan of how easy the eco-friendly bags come out. It makes cleaning up after Chippy Chip a little less of a chore.

Eco-friendly treats for your dog

Finally, we have a unique selection of treats, including:

  • Petipet Mobility Bars – Made with human-grade ingredients, including carrots, apples, and baobab, these bars are designed to support your dog’s hips and joints.
  • Brewscuits – Made from simple, natural ingredients like wet brewers grains and sweet potatoes, these treats provide your pup with a nice crunchy snack.
  • YakyPuff – Made with yak and cow milk, as well as other natural ingredients, these treats let your dog indulge in their love of cheese.
  • Yaky Charms – Made from a traditional Himalayan cheese recipe, these unique microwavable treats are light and crunchy, as well as grain-free, lactose-free and gluten-free.
Chippy’s Picks

My little Chippy Chiperson isn’t much of a treat hound. Although, she does like to try and steal my salads or avocado toast. But one thing she absolutely loves is cheese. It’s how I get her to take her meds, by sneaking it in melted cheese.

So can you guess which eco-friendly treats she loved most? Yep, it was the YakyPuff and the Brewscuits. My girl loves her cheese as well as anything that lets her indulge in her favorite pass time of crunching and chewing. Occasionally, she will also eat one of the YakyCharms.

While the Petipet’s weren’t her thing, I know my dogphew Cooper will love them. As a senior dog, he will benefit from their hip and joint support and softer texture.

If you’re looking to try some eco-friendly toys and treats your dog will love, I highly recommend Pure Earth Pets subscription boxes. And if you use code BLACK FRIDAY, you can get your first box for only $5, with the purchase of a six-month monthly subscription.
