Emerald Eco Friendly Products

So, you know my eco-goals each year include lessening waste – including the waste of paper products. We’ve done away with paper napkins at our house and also use paper towels minimally – we have quite a stash of good rags ready at all times to help with clean-ups, spills, etc. We haven’t gotten away […]

Green Tip Tuesday – DeodoMom

I’ll admit, I’m totally one of those people that can sweat…A LOT! Is it a gene thing?? or body type thing? I’m not complaining – I’m way beyond that and have far moved into acceptance. The lovely people at 30SomeWeeks.com offered to send me some of their toxin-free and hypoallergenic DeodoMom deodorant to try. This deodorant has […]

Not that my cute little orca pony, Bubba, could ever have fleas…oh my, heck no. But should he? I know exactly what natural method I would try to get them out of our house. We have carpet pretty much everywhere except the bathrooms in our house. Not exactly my choice, but that’s another story for […]

The wonders of vinegar. This magic elixir comes in so many forms and can be used for everything from cleaning your house, preserving foods and soothing all your aches and pains.

Green Tip Tuesday is back!! It’s been far too long, but now with summer winding down a bit, I can get back into my routine (which is, in fact, usually anything but routine!) Might have been better to share this tip at the beginning of summer, but “better late than never”I always say. If you’re […]

Aaahhh the skin! If you’ve never had skin issues of any sort, well then I am so very envious of you! I’ve never had major skin issues, though I definitely have noticed more acne – yes, acne in my 40s than I have at any other time in my life. Could this be hormones? Who […]

More CHIA Love!

Just as I was getting ready to write about this DELICIOUS Chia/Vie drink I tried, I noticed that one of my favorite bloggers, Leslie over at Crunchy Betty has a post up about using Chia on your FACE! You know I’ve already written about how much I LOVE Chia – not to mention all the […]

Eco-Tip: The Coco Bidet

Green Tip Tuesday – Eco Cosmetics

Lately I’ve been getting lots of questions on eco-friendly cosmetic products – do I use them and do I have recommendations? So, I thought I’d start sharing some of my favorites on Green Tip Tuesday now and again. Now, I’m no an expert. In fact, I’m continually learning, but in my ongoing attempts at creating […]

Let’s talk Vodka!!

Ahhh vodka, it seems you’re not just for happy hour anymore. (truly, I can’t even remember the last time I even went to a happy hour – I simply have them at home now – getting old I guess!) My interest in these using vodka tips started with a quick article I read in Health magazine and, […]

One thing on my “to do” list this week (as I’m off of work) is to clean my silver jewelry. These pieces just seems to be very, very tarnished… probably from a year of hanging out in the open (as opposed to being tucked away in a jewelry box). One non-toxic alternative I have is […]
