Black Positivity Bracelet Set Review + Giveaway

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.


It’s All About Caring: Help the Earth, Help People

Going green is important, because it helps protect living things – people, animals, and the earth. Sometimes that protection can take a little extra effort, but I think we’d all agree that it’s worth it in the long run when we consider preserving the earth and all its inhabitants, so future generations can enjoy it the way we do. Anyone who has been touched by addiction knows that they long to protect addicted friends and family in the same way that we protect the earth. Living things are valuable and have dignity, and it’s important to help them in any way we can. NJ drug and alcohol treatment centers are an excellent resource for helping a loved one. Advanced Health and Education is just one of them.

Adding in Sippy Cups

I was told when he was 9 months old that we need to try and start using a sippy and less bottle....I thought that it was really to soon but we have spent alot of time trying out new cups that he likes. We have tried out the Kidbasix the Safe Sippy 2. Here is how it looks.
 Meet the world’s first and only 2-in-1 convertible sippy to straw bottle, what one mommy blogger called “quite possibly the coolest sippy ever.” The Safe Sippy2™ has all of the great BPA-free features of our original Safe Sippy™ cup, plus several new features. You can check them out on the right.
At Kid Basix, we know that nothing irks parents more than buying something for their children that doesn’t last. That’s why we created The Safe Sippy2™ convertible sippy-to-straw cup in stainless steel. It’s safe, versatile and durable. So when your child says he or she is too old for a sippy cup and wants a straw bottle like the “big kids,” you can reach for the straw adaptor instead of your wallet.

My 2013

Now on this blog I do mostly giveaways and reviews. I always want to post fun and easy things DIY and things about our lives alot we cant talk about but I thought I would do a overview of what 2013 was like for us. Around January we decided we were going to take the leap to start the process of becoming foster parents. We didn't really know what this would all entail and if we did probably wouldn't of finished it....but that is for another post. If you are interested in that journey leave a comment below. We celebrated Brendan's 10th birthday in March I cant believe my guy is 10! 2013 is also the year that I accepted that I will never have my own baby after 7+ years of TTC and a year of failed fertility treatments. I know we are meant to have a baby and god will find a way and maybe he already has at least for a little while. We are blessed to be the temporary parents of a almost 10 month old and have since birth. In 2013 we had a great garden and had so many cucumbers that we made jars and jars of pickles. Life with a baby was unexpected in 2013 but it was the best surprise we could of asked for. Most of you know that we cloth diaper him full time and I love it. It is so easy I don't know why everyone isn't doing it. This post is just one big blah blah but was just on my mind and i really want to make this blog not only about the giveaways and reviews but I want somewhere that I can be open. Being a foster parent isn't easy and it is packed full of emotions 100% of the day good and bad.

Thanks for listening!

Going Green: The Benefits of E Cigarettes

Since their debut several years ago, e cigs have grown in popularity and social acceptance among smokers. Both regular smokers and social smokers have benefited with financial savings, less waste, and a more pleasant smell. For many reasons, E cigarettes have opened more social doors for smokers. Rather than having to step out for a smoke or away from friends and bystanders, you can continue meaningful conversation with the people around you while enjoying a cigarette. Here are a few other benefits to E cigarettes. 

Reducing Litter
Smokers leave tiny little cigarette butts all over the place – especially if ashtrays are nowhere to be found. As smoking has lessened in popularity, it’s more and more difficult to find an ashtray to keep the earth clean. E cigarettes eliminate the need for an ashtray, because they don’t create ashes. Since E cigs offer many uses to the consumer, you’re not constantly throwing away what you just purchased. E cigarettes require a one-time purchase of the cigarette, and periodic purchases of the solution that goes inside the cigarette. For more information on these solutions, check out

Eliminating Smell
Traditional smoking emits a smell that may bother a lot of people, as well as filling the air with second-hand smoke. E cigarettes have a much lighter smell that you can manipulate, depending on what formula you smoke in an E cigarette. Choose one that’s pleasant to those around you, and you may make some new friends who are full of questions about E cigarettes.

Protecting Habitat

How many raging fires have started because someone carelessly discarded a cigarette during a dry season or geographical area? E cigarettes are a much better option for protecting the environment, especially if you’re enjoying the outdoors in a desert region where risk of fire is high. Though outdoor spaces can look and seem hardy, many eco-systems are particularly fragile, and fires can result in tragedy for both people and animals. E cigarettes are a safer choice for stewarding the earth well. For more information about E cigs, visit There’s much more to know about how these fascinating little inventions can benefit you.
