She {hearts} Earth Mama Angel Baby

baby boom virtual shower

There’s nothing like a little pampering to a pregnant mama. As beautiful and wonderful pregnancy can be, often a pregnant mama can physically feel anything but beautiful and wonderful. Stretch marks, dry skin, and morning sickness can take a toll on a pregnant mama’s changing body.

Being 22 weeks pregnant with my third baby (it’s a girl!), I can say that a little pampering goes a long way in how I’m feeling. Also, I am really concerned with what I put in/on my body, especially when I am pregnant. It’s scary to think how the chemicals and toxins that are in so many body products could possibly negatively affect my baby.

Enter Earth Mama Angel Baby. They use the highest-quality, certified-organic or organically grown herbs and oils for their products. Their products are free of toxins, cruelty-free, vegan, and contain no artificial preservatives, fragrances and dyes. They offer so many products to pamper and soothe a tired, uncomfortable pregnant mama!

Earth Mama Angel Baby sent me their “pocket full of pampering” set to try- the A Little Something For Mama-To-Be gift set. This set contains their Happy Mama Hand to Toe Wash, Happy Mama Spray, Earth Mama Body Butter, Natural Stretch Oil, and Organic Morning Wellness Tea.

My favorites in this set are the Happy Mama Hand to Toe Wash and the Earth Mama Body Butter. The Happy Mama Hand to Toe Wash is self-foaming (that means no artificial foaming agents) and smells AMAZING with the help of fresh ginger (which can naturally ease morning sickness), organic lime and organic pink grapefruit essential oils. The Earth Mama Body Butter is a luxurious lotion that soothes dry skin and stretched bellies (and more!), thanks to organic borage oil and neroli pure essential oil with rich shea butter. For me, a bonus favorite is the Happy Mama Spray. My nose has been super, super sensitive this time around (I couldn’t even bear to open my fridge for months!), and this uplifting spray has brought me through plenty of queasy moments. It can be spritzed again and again for instant relief, thanks to lime and ginger pure essential oils. Bliss!

She {hearts} Jamberry Nails

I love having pretty, flawless, manicured nails. I love the personality a sassy color or fun pattern can bring to my fingertips. As a mom, I really don’t have the time or patience to sit, paint my nails, and let them dry (and forget about any pattern or design- an artist I am not).

So, to say the least, I am going absolutely crazy over my discovery of Jamberry Nails! These easy-to-apply (and remove) nail shields come in a huge variety (over 150 options) of colors and patterns. Applied by heat and pressure, Jamberry Nails require no chemicals in their application or removal. They can last up to two weeks on fingernails and four to six weeks on toenails. I love that there are no fumes, messes, or drying time involved.

Jamberry Nails are the perfect accessory to show team/school spirit, celebrate holidays, or simply to coordinate with an outfit. They are also great to mix and match since there are so many designs to choose from.

I had the hardest time picking my favorite Jamberry Nails style, but finally decided to go with the Black & White Chevron (who can resist a little chevron in b&w?!). I got the hang of the application process very quickly, and was able to perfect all ten of my digits while my 3 year old and 18 month old ate breakfast one morning. I have received so many compliments on my nails, and the shields didn’t budge after a long day of errands, baths, dishes, and normal daily activity.

A few more of my favorites:

BirdsGray & Yellow Horizontal StripeNeutral Paisley

I am excited to try Jamberry Nails on my 3 year old daughter. She is totally into getting her nails done and I’m sure she would go nuts over the Pink Butterflies design. And no drying time or mess would make my daughter and me both very happy.

Jamberry Nails are the perfect nail accessory to give your nails some personality and attain a flawless manicure or pedicure. With so many styles and designs to choose from, I {heart} this product big time.  They can be purchased at the Jamberry Nails site.

She {hearts} The Crafty Cat Corner

Having a little girl is SO MUCH FUN! The dresses, the shoes, the princesses, the baby dolls. I love it all! And as the years have gone by, I have patiently waited for her beautiful hair to grow long enough to play with, and now, less than 2 months away from her 3rd birthday, it has become any every day ritual to “pick a bow”. Now this didn’t happen overnight. It took a few weeks of daily rituals of brushing her hair, and even now, she still will not allow me to put her hair into any form of a ponytail. But what she WILL let me do, is put her hair in pretty bows and headbands. I’ll take it! I’m in heaven!

This has opened up a whole new world for me! I have perused local retail stores, boutiques, etsy, eBay, you name it! But my most favorite hair accessory maker of all-time can be found right under my nose, on FACEBOOK!

Amazing, talented, sweet, creative…..those are only a few words used to describe Cat, from The Crafty Cat Corner! She comes up with the cutest and most unique bows, clippies, & headbands I have ever seen. But the best part is, she is willing to work with me to customize items to match outfits Lily already has! For example, I had mentioned I was looking to do Lily’s third birthday party with a Paris theme. Cat was able to create this beautiful bow, for Lily to wear to her birthday party!

Now, I know what your asking. How much do they cost? The normal price range for Cat’s items are $2-$10. That is a STEAL if you ask me! You can’t find bows like these is just a store! Let alone, something custom made to your specifications?! It’s amazing.

{heart} It

The Crafty Cat Corner does business  through their Facebook Page for now. Head on over there, LIKE the page, and you can check out everything Cat has to offer by browsing her “For Sale” albums or contacting her directly through the Contact/Order Here tab on the left.

She {hearts} Carmex Skin Care

I don’t know about you, but during the fall and winter seasons, my hands need a little extra TLC to keep from being dry and succumbing to eczema! I love Carmex’s new line of Healing Lotion and Healing Cream!

The Healing Lotion is great for everyday use anywhere your skin feels dry!  I love that the ingredient list includes aloe and Vitamin E, and that it has a soft scent. The non-greasy formula is a definite plus as well! You can find this lotion in a tube or a pump.

The Healing Cream is more concentrated and designed for your most dry spots (elbows, etc.), and also has a non-greasy formula. It has nine healing ingredients, including cocoa butter and lanolin, and it easily soaks into your dry skin to provide healing.  The scent of this lotion was my favorite between the two!!

{heart} It

Suggested retail price for each full size tube of Carmex Healing Lotion and Healing Cream is $5.99, and $.99 for each smaller size tube. These products are available now at Walgreens and CVS, but will be on shelves at Wal-mart soon.

She {hearts} Freebies

Carmex is giving away a gift pack to one reader! You will receive a fun package with 4 great Carmex Healing Lotion and Healing Cream products (two full size tubes and two pocket-sized tubes)!

To Enter: Leave a comment telling us why your hands deserve some extra pampering (Washing lots of dishes? Dealing with eczema? Do tell!)

She {hearts} Carmex

As a member of the Carmex Blog Squad, I have recently had the opportunity to try two new Carmex products: Carmex Lime Twist Moisturizing Lip Balm and Carmex Vanilla Moisturizing Lip Balm.

Both of these lip balms include all of the traditional Carmex moisturizers PLUS three additional moisturizers. The scents are yummy and it feels a little tingly when you apply the lip balm. I also love that the lip balms provide SPF 15!  These were fun to try and I definitely recommend them!
