You know the moment when you try to clean your little one’s face and they pull back from you? Then the seemingly simple task of getting their face clean morphs into an epic battle? Here’s the solution: NeatCheeks! These wipes are sweetened with stevia, so when you wipe your little one’s face they will actually ENJOY having their face wiped! The all natural ingredients are non-irritating, gentle and not sticky.
Another great reason to support this mom-invented product is that it is made in the USA with solar energy.
Meliora K’s Laundry Powder is free of fragrances, dyes, and brighteners. We list every ingredient clearly on the label, you can count them on one hand. Works great in standard and HE front load washers. Our vision is a clean, happy, and healthy home that doesn’t rely on secret formulas and mysterious chemicals.
I was excited to use this product. It was effective and free of toxins—the perfect combination!

Moo like a Cow! by Sarah Vince
My 9-month old LOVED this book! It has a fold-out mirrors that allows children (and parents!) to read the book while they copy all of the funny faces inside. While my infant was too young to use the mirror, he got a kick out of watching his older brother do it. Fun illustrations will delight your kids and help them to match the silly faces.
Additional titles in this fun series: Smile Like a Princess, Roar Like a Lion, Yee-haw Like a Cowboy.
Board book price: $6.99
Ground2Table was conceived as a portal into a true sustainable lifestyle. This company is new and customers will be able to experience the beginning of an expanding product line designed to optimize culinary experience.
This month I sampled:
Spice Blend #1 and made an amazing salad dressing (spice packet, 1/4 c. ACV, 1/2 c. olive oil, and 1 t. lemon juice, plus a dash of unrefined salt!).
Spice Blend #5 and made tasty and EASY guacamole!
Spice Blend #12 and just sprinkled the spice blend over apples and cucumbers and drizzled the mixture with honey. Sooooo delicious!
These organic blended spices are salt-free, sugar-free, and have no GMOs.
$1.99 for each 5 to 8 gram packet

Earthwise Beauty hand makes incredible organic skin care products that feel like food for your skin. This relies on a wonderful synergy of a trio of carefully selected oils, along with a few essential oils chosen for their broad-range skin-rejuvenating, firming, brightening, and anti-inflammatory topical effects.
I am a huge fan of essential oils for whole body health, and since the skin is our largest organ, I am huge fan of this product. I’ve been using in the evenings after showering (I have normal to dry skin) and enjoy the relaxing scent and moisturizing effect of the oil.

However, working out from home only requires a patient husband and a working laptop.
