I’m all about trying healthy new snacks, so when KIND offered to send me some of their Healthy Grains Clusters to try out, I was more than happy to give ’em a try. KIND firmly believes that if you can’t pronounce an ingredient, you probably shouldn’t be eating it. That’s why all of their products contain only “ingredients you can see & pronounce” (as proudly stated on their packaging!). Their granola, as well as their popular snack bars, are all made with 100% whole grains, fruits, and nuts — no refined sugar, no artificial flavors — nothing but all natural […]
I did a bit of blog maintenance over the weekend and tried to make it a lil’ more organized. There’s now a handy dandy drop-down menu for all the reviews I’ve done. (See photo above) Every box/product that I’ve ever written about can be found in one (or more) of those categories. There’s also a separate category for product reviews, in case anyone’s interested in non-box stuff. The “DISCOUNT CODES” tab/page hasn’t changed and still lists any current box deals/codes. All boxes with discounts are noted as such under the “REVIEWS APLENTY” section as well (marked with an asterisk). The site’s […]

Yep, I still have twins. 😉 Sadly, when the girls hit the 1-year mark and my monthly “photoshoots” came to an end, I pretty much stopped regularly sharing photos of them on here. (Pretty crummy of me since the blog is named after them and all.) In all honesty, I’m not sure how many of my current readers really give a flip about my kiddos. Or how much I should even share in a public space. What started as a personal blog about my twin pregnancy has evolved into something completely different and I’m fine with that. But the truth […]

Nearly all of her pieces — including necklaces, rings, and earrings — are inspired by henna and Mehndi art. Flowers, butterflies, hearts, and celestial designs are the most common themes featured. She also accepts custom orders and can tweak her designs to give you a truly one of a kind piece of jewelry.

I was recently contacted by the founder of a great company called Lalabu. She was wondering if I’d be interested in reviewing an innovative new product for moms — the Soothe Shirt. The Soothe Shirt is a clever, simpler alternative to traditional baby-wearing, uh… contraptions. There are no straps, ties, or buckles — you simply wear it as you would any other shirt. So easy! It has a has a snug yet stretchable fit, with a pouch in the front that effortlessly holds your little one against your chest. There’s also a built-in nursing bra for breastfeeding.
