Giveaway! Win a 3-month subscription for Conscious Box!!!

Back in June of last year, I was asked to review Conscious Box, a monthly subscription service that delivers boxes packed full of eco-centric products.

Through a letter to the Kansas City Attachment Parenting Forums, I became slightly acquainted with Christina Alba, who is the owner of the Natural Newborn (and a bunch of other nice ladies who got a kick out of my tongue-in-cheek letter…hi gals!), and she requested that I let her know what I thought of Bug Stopper Soap when I got a chance to try it.
