As an expectant mother I wanted to share some things that I am using to get through it and to pamper myself while getting ready for my world to change!

Its so easy to get caught up in cleaning your house, getting things ready for your baby to arrive and letting the time slip away without taking care of yourself, or doing things for yourself to keep you looking and feeling your best!… [read more]

Products to Help Your Breastfeeding Journey

Products to Help Your Breastfeeding Journey - Milkies- Nursing Blend Breasfeeding Supplement - Lactation Massager by LaVie

Beauty Brite Disclosure

I’m the mother of four children, ages ranging from six years old to three months. I always thought that breastfeeding would be easy. I never imagined things wouldn’t go according to plan. With my first two children I really didn’t have the knowledge that I needed to move forward, so when things got hard I just gave up and used formula.

(First and foremost I’d like to say that I have no problem with formula, I honestly and fully believe that FED is best. So just wanted to say there is no mommy shaming in this post! )… [read more]

Celebrating National Snack Day With a Bang

Celebrating National Snack Day With a BANG

Beauty Brite Disclosure

Did you know that March 4th is National Snack day? I didn’t either but I’ve found some awesome snacks that I think you and your family will love. So let’s get down to the tasty goodness!

Now I have four kids ( ages six, four, two and three months), three of which are old enough to love snacks. I’m pretty sure that

“Can I have a Snack mom”??? 

is the number one thing I hear in my house every single day. So I’ll start with some of our favorites in this household.

Go Organically Fruit Snacks

Go Organically Fruit Snacks:  These are one of my kid’s favorite snacks by far! These tasty treats are USDA-certified and made with real fruit. At 70 calories each, I don’t mind giving them to my kids when they are in need of a snack.

Keeping with the fruity theme another go-to snack here is Welch’s Fruit Rolls. Did you know that fruit is the first ingredient? My kids love them and can’t get enough. I don’t feel bad sending these to school with my oldest daughter to school because I know that there is nothing in it to set off an allergy attack because she has so many allergies.

Munk Pack Oatmeal Fruit Sqeezes

 

Another favorite here is the Munk Pack Oatmeal Fruit Sqeezes. These are so great, helps keep your little ones full while at home or on the go, these are perfect to just put in your diaper bag or a school lunch. They are great for breakfast for your little ones too. This perfect snack is whole grain, vegan, and gluten-free. A great choice for any time of the day for sure.

So now that we have covered kids you ask “Well what’s a good choice for me”? I’ve found some I think you’re defiantly going to like.

Sparkling Ice is your option if you want to cut out the soda. For me, its all about the fizz and this carbonated drink is a great switch. It has zero calories and zero carbs. Its got Vitamin D and B-Vitamins along with antioxidants. There are over twenty flavors, from lemonades to teas. My favorite is the Black-Raspberry!

If you’re always on the go like I am, sometimes I honestly forget to stop and eat, which isn’t great but its life as a mom sometimes. Well, Gaea Veggie Snacks are great on the go option for that busy lifestyle. They offer Pickles ( My Favorite! ) carrot and cauliflower.  They are all natural and resealable and are great on the go snack.

Carrington Farms line of Paks

Carrington Farms line of Paks is great for adding in some extra nutrition in almost any product! Mix in water, smoothies, or sprinkle over some ice cream, great for keeping you fit and full.

What tasty snack will you choose?

Having a sick little one is something that no parent wants to go through. But kids can be tiny little germ machines. My oldest started Kindergarten this year and within the first week had a nasty cold that she ended up sharing with the rest of her siblings. Why is it they always want to share their germs? As a parent I’m always looking for things that make our life a little easier when it comes to the kiddos feeling yucky.

I have three (soon to be four) kids and it seems like someone is always feeling sick or under the weather. Allergies are an issue in our house, as well, and always a concern when our daughter has to be cared for by others. So I thought I might share a few products that are helping us to make our children’s sick days a little easier to bear as well as give me a little peace of mind when my oldest is at school.
