She {hearts} reVetro

Who doesn’t love pretty jewelry?  I know I love wearing statement necklaces, and my new piece from reVetro is an eye-catching addition to my collection!

reVetro offers gorgeous recycled jewelry made from glass bottles!  It’s so great to know that when you buy this jewelry you are saving a glass bottle from a landfill.  The jewelry is so stylish and fun!  These unique pieces would make great gifts for moms, friends, and coworkers.

The piece I received is called the Bombay Gin Mini Square.  It’s so pretty and versatile!

She {hearts} Undercover Mama

undercover-mama-logo

Between my three kids, I’ve breastfed for 35 months (and counting…), so I’ve learned a thing or two about dressing for the job!  I’ve found that an essential piece of my wardrobe (in addition to a great nursing bra, of course) is the Undercover Mama!

This unique top hooks onto your favorite bra to create a nursing tank to layer under any shirt.  The advantage of this over a normal nursing tank is that it allows you the freedom to wear your favorite (supportive!) bra!  When it’s time to nurse, you can lift up your shirt without exposing your tummy.  The Undercover Mama has you covered!

I also like how the Undercover Mama fits perfectly (I wear a small) and is high enough in the back and the front.  The array of color choices is fantastic too (thirteen options)!

I highly recommend the Undercover Mama if you are breastfeeding or soon to be!

She {hearts} Graze

graze-logo

I love to snack, but I really try to make healthy choices when it comes to food.  Sometimes I can feel so tired and run-down that even making a snack for myself (grabbing some crackers and slicing some cheese) seems like a lot of work!  I found out about Graze, and I’ve been really enjoying the wonderful snacks that come straight to my doorstep!

Graze is a subscription box service that sends you a box of 4 snacks (1 serving each, perfectly portioned) on the regularity you set: once a month, twice a month, or every week.  On their website, Graze allows you to “rate” each snack (before and after trying them) so they can customize your box to your tastes.

Here are some snacks I’ve recently gotten in my boxes!  Dried cranberries, pumpkin seeds, and chocolate; mango, pineapple, and coconut; summer berry granola bars; and olive rosemary bruschetta croutons and cashews.

I love the diversity of the snacks, from sweet to savory, and how customizeable the boxes are to my taste!

I was planning on cancelling after I got my first box free, but now I’m hooked, and I think you will be too!

She {hearts} Jamberry Nails

jamberry-nails-logo

I love having painted nails, but I never can seem to wear polish for more than several days without it starting to chip!  I’m a mom, so I have my hands in water about 37 times a day, which nail polish also does not like.  I was excited to try a set of Jamberry Nails wraps from Independent Consultant Beverly West, but I was a bit skeptical that they would last much longer than nail polish (and still look good).  Jamberry Nails wraps are kind of like stickers that are applied using heat (see how to apply here).

I found the application process pretty straightforward, though my first try took an embarrassingly long amount of time (I hear it gets faster the more you do it!).  I ended up leaving the wraps on my nails for 13 days (what?!) to fully test them out.  The verdict?  Amazing!  I love the look of fancy patterns on my nails (I chose these fabulous gold crisscross wraps) and the Jamberry Nails wraps held up beautifully!  Here’s what they looked like on Day 1.

jamberry-nails-gold-day1

Don’t they look so fabulous?  I kept smiling as I looked at my nails all day.  Jamberry Nails wraps are also easy to remove when you’re ready, and they don’t damage your nails at all.

jamberry-nails-gold-day8jamberry-nails-gold-day13

Like I said, I kept mine on for 13 days.  Here’s what they looked like on days 8 (left) and 13 (right).

I was very impressed with how well they held up and how long they lasted!

I definitely want to try a few other patterns (and with 300+ to pick from, I have lots of options)!

Beverly West is available to do “virtual” Jamberry Nails parties, where you can host a virtual party for your friends (in your pajamas, if you want!) and earn some great hostess rewards.

I attended one of her parties, and it was super fun!

She {hearts} MY ECO

 

my-eco-logo

My primary grocery store is Aldi, which requires you to bring your own bags, so I’m a bit “seasoned” at using reusable bags.  I typically stuff a bunch of random-sized bags into the car before we leave and then shove all my groceries in as best as I can.  UNTIL… I discovered MY ECO Bags!  These reusable shopping bags are absolutely fantastic.

The MY ECO 4-in-1 bag set is a small pouch that unzips to reveal four HUGE reusable bags (which have been made from recycled yogurt containers!).  The bottom of one of the bags forms the zippered pouch so you’ll always be able to put it back together.

myecobags1

The first bag is for groceries and dry goods, and it holds a TON. The second bag is for produce.  I buy lots of produce usually, so it’s nice that this bag is really large too!  The third bag is possibly my favorite: the insulated bag for cold and frozen items.  The top zips shut to keep groceries cold (worked for me on a 40-minute drive home!).  The fourth bag is for glass jars, bottles, and cans.  On my recent trip, I didn’t even end up needing this bag because the other bags had so much storage!  The cool thing about this bag is that it has mesh bands inside to keep the bottles and jars from clanking against each other and breaking.

The bottoms of the bags are square, which keeps them upright for bagging, fitting in the cart, packing in the car, and unloading without falling over.  All of the bags are quite sturdy and have wide straps which makes them easy to carry.  As an added bonus, the bags are all wipeable and dishwasher safe for easy cleaning!  

The MY ECO 4-in-1 Bag Set holds the equivalent of 30 plastic grocery bags!  Did you catch that I fit ALL my groceries into just three bags?  So awesome!  I plan on leaving the pouch in the car so it’s always there when I shop!

She {hearts} mamatea

mamatea-logo

Drinking red raspberry leaf tea has become a routine part of my pregnancies, since this tea can help prepare your uterus for labor.  Some varieties of prenatal tea can have “lackluster” flavor, but not mamatea!  Mamatea is delicious and full of great flavor, as well as blended to be perfect for each phase of motherhood (preconception, pregnancy, and postpartum).

Developed and hand-blended by a mom, mamatea is organic and all-natural.

I have been enjoying the Pregnancy Tea each day as I prepare for labor and delivery of my third baby!  The tea tastes subtly of citrus and strawberry.  I can’t wait to try the New Mama Tea once my baby arrives!

DSC_1860copy

I steep 1.5 tsp. of loose-leaf tea in a muslin pouch for 8 minutes (sometimes longer).  You can also use a metal tea infuser.

If you’re looking for a great-tasting tea for any stage of pregnancy, mamatea is definitely the way to go!

She {hearts} Knocked Up Nails

Many nail polishes contain tons of icky ingredients, so I’m always glad when I find a company that is free of those ingredients!

Knocked Up Nails offers 5-free maternity safe nail polish that you can feel good about using, pregnant or not!  Read more about the ingredients that they use and don’t use here.  Knocked Up Nails has a wide variety of polish colors that range from classic to trendy, all with fun names!

I enjoyed trying Mom’s Night Out on my fingers and 18K Gold Crown(ing) on my toes!  Mom’s Night Out is bright red but with a slight shimmer/sparkle that is quite lovely.  18K Gold Crown(ing) is a metallic gold that reflects light and has a nice, cool undertone.  I applied two coats of each color and they held up well!  The photos show my nails after 2 days of regular wear (hands in water, etc.).  I was happy with the coverage and the great colors!
