mindful indulgence with alter eco and ginnybakes :: review


December seems to be a time of indulgence—especially when it comes to dessert. Baked goods in the break room, cookies and egg nog at holiday parties, candy from your Secret Santa. Temptation around every corner. Thankfully with Alter Eco and ginnybakes, you can indulge without the chemicals found in most other store-bought goodies. Alter Eco uses only the best ingredients (organic, non-GMO, gluten-free and fair trade) in their treats. I was lucky enough to try some Salted Caramel truffles. They {Read More}

fresh fun music with lori henriques :: review


My 2-year-old son was obsessed for quite a while with a CD of silly toddler songs. Every time we would get in the car he would yell out his request: “Icky song, Mommy” or “Fish song” or “Sing song”.

“I used baby products by JOHNSON’S® to care for my little one as part of a sponsored post for Socialstars {#johnsonspartners} – but you know, all opinions are my own.
