ECOTOOLS - Earth Friendly Beauty Cellulose bath sponge.
This sponge is made of recycled plant pulp. I love this sponge because its nice and fluffy but still firm. It's made entirely out recycled plants and the packaging is made out of recycled material too. It came with a little rope to tie on for hanging. This bath sponge only cost me $1.50 at Ocean State. Amazon also sells this line of beauty products for around the same price. I look forward to trying more of their products. These would make for some amazing earth friendly Christmas Presents and I'll defiantly be ordering an array of their products to hand out for Christmas!
UPDATE: Food Babe's article on how the food industry is using cellulose as an additive in food. While cellulose may be a great way to exfoliate, I have to agree that it shouldn't be used to bulk up food with less than food ingredients. Take a look at this article please! Show her some support! Don't worry girl! You're not the only one who doesn't want to eat wood!
Dermasil Labs - Epsom Salt Lavender - Soaking Solution
The only ingredients in this product is Magnesium Sulfate, and Lavender Fragrance. They use lavender essential oils to aid in the soothing soak of epsom salt. It says to pour 2 cupful's into a warm running bath to soothe sour muscles and promote well being. I haven't been able to get my hands on any essential oils yet, but I'm looking forward to trying this.
Dr. Scholl's Mini Foot Massager
This Mini foot massager is great for one foot at a time, and comes in four different vibrant colors. I suggest trying after soaking feet in Epsom salt. This massager is about the size of a very small foot. It takes two AA batteries, and gives you're feet a hands free rub. After putting the batteries in all it takes to turn it on is to put your foot on it. The pressure from your foot turns on the device. Once your foot is on it, it will vibrate your foot. It actually has a lot of power for it's size. You have to do one foot at a time, unless there is two. I do like this product and you really don't need to use for long periods of time. Just a couple minutes on each foot rotating is great and relaxing. Give you're tired feet a break! This feels great after being on you're feet for awhile.
Okay, so it's been a little while since my last update. Well that would be because we moved! Let me just say, I love it! We loved our last apartment but this one is more conventional for our family. So we've been very busy the last couple weeks, to a month. The even better news is now I have internet and a better functioning computer to work on my blogs. Easter is coming! Spring is in the air and it feels amazing. My husband is back to work full time and I still work part time. I love working. Being a stay at home mom for over 3 years now it's nice to be able to bring in some bacon. Although I eat a lot of organic food, I will always love bacon. Waking up everyday with a positive mind set has brought me a long way. I'm very happy with where I am in life. It's important to love the right now, but know where you want to be. I'm exactly where I am supposed to be in my life.
I want to update you all on how well the girls are doing. Let me start off youngest to oldest. My youngest is walking, running, jumping, and a very good eater! She weighs about the same as her older sister. She wants to do everything she sees her sisters doing! It's incredible how much they learn from watching each other! Mya is talking quite a bit now. She can tell you exactly what she wants and how she wants it. I love that she can express herself in positive ways. They amaze me everyday. My oldest is almost four and I just can't believe it! Where does the time go? Officially using the potty all by herself! About time! She worked hard on her sticker chart and I'm proud to announce that she is potty trained. (They don't teach potty training in Early Childhood ED) She also loves wearing her glasses still and wears them most days. They love playing outside and with the nice weather coming I'm very excited we live right next to the park now.
We just had a recent trip to Walmart. They all got new shoes, sunglasses, and my little ponies. My oldest is in a size 8 shoe, and the other two are both in size 5. They picked out their own shoes. What an exciting trip that was. Sparkles, Colorful, Dora the explorer, and everything else! They enjoyed our little trip to the store. They had a lot of fun picking out their own sunglasses and getting ready for spring. Now, I always seem to do this. Easter is right around the corner. Yet I can't help but buy them stuff right before Easter. We always do a really big Easter. We get them all the toys, clothes, shoes, etc.. that make spring time just that much more exciting. I joke and say it's the second Christmas in my house. Well with three beautiful babies, every holiday looks like Christmas.
While we were in the store a group of elderly women came up to me just to tell me how good of a job I was doing with them. That always makes me feel really great! When an older person can recognize a good mother and father without thinking about our ages, that we are good parents. Stereo types of couples with more than one child, or having any children at a younger adult age are absolutely absurd. I can't help but think it's for a good reason. A lot of parents that are young have made that stereo type real. I never understood how a child could be neglected or abused. Growing up we didn't see that in my house. My house had a mother and father that loved me and my sister both. We were the definition of spoiled. Although, all the love and everything that came with growing up in a stable household has made me the incredible mother that I am today. As a parent you always want your children to have a better upbringing then you had. As do I. Topping the childhood I had, isn't easy. It takes a lot of work, from both of us. But together we are giving our children the best up bringing possible. We are definitely holding our standards to the highest when it comes to our children and how we raise them.
On that note, I hope y'all enjoyed my update! Have a blessed day and I will catch up some more later! Stay positive beautiful!

This page is to bring you along my journey to find positivity and harmony. Its started as a 30 day challenge to learn more about ones self and how to truly take care of yourself. To take care of others, you have to be able to take care of yourself. Instead of a 30 day challenge I'm turning this into a year of positivity and the journey we venture to find what truly matters in this world. It is important as a mother to show children positivity can be found everywhere and anywhere. It starts with right now, and right here!
