Motherhood and Romance…and Spicy Subsciptions

As a mother, I find it difficult sometimes to remember that there is another person in the household who needs attention almost as much as the kids do.

Today, I’m going to be talking about a very important topic…motherhood and romance. By romance, I mean almost every aspect. Whether you’re a single mom and dating, or whether you’re in a committed relationship with your significant other, being a mom often means the same, regardless of relationship status. You are on call, day and night, every single day of the year. At any moment, a little voice could call out “Mommy!!”, and you are obligated to answer. So how on earth are you supposed to have any time or energy left for the other part of your equation? Especially when they want to…you know…have some “us” time? Continue reading

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.

I absolutely LOVED my Conscious Box (check out the review here), and a couple of days ago, they reached out to me to run a giveaway again. This time, the prize is three times as awesome as the last giveaway (a Conscious Box)…

Consumer Review: La Bella Box December 2012


Many, many apologies for the delay in this review. I also must confess something. I didn’t take that picture. It’s from the La Bella Box Facebook page. Why am I not using a picture I took? Because, unfortunately, the contents of the box were devoured before I remembered “Oh crepes! I needed to take a pretty picture!”. Continue reading

The Natural Newborn – Bug Stopper Soap

I mentioned Bug Stopper Soap from The Natural Newborn a couple entries back when I did my review of the Conscious Box. I stated that I had not yet had a chance to try it, but would let you all know when I did.

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.
