Healthy Nail Polish

Greenista Girl Shivani

A healthier way to do your nails …

At a cool boutique in Houston called Kuhl-Linscomb in Houston that our friend Bridget introduced us to, Neha and I found WONDERFUL natural skin care products, hair care products, gifts for kids, and a plethora of other items.  It’s like every boutique you every wanted to visit, all under one roof.

There I found a great brand called Deborah Lipman - beautiful packaging, beautiful branding, beautiful, natural product - wow you’ve got me!  The products contain no toluene, formaldehyde or DBP, no animal testing.  Tons of celebrities love the product, and have created fun custom colors with the line.

I try to use natural, healthy, toxin free body products as much as possible in my daily life, when I’m pregnant I’m hyper conscious-about these things, so try it out, it’s an easy way to switch one of your personal care items to a more toxin-free alternative.  That is, unless you’re willing to go au naturel …

What vitamins do your kids like?

Vitamins for Kids

What vitamins do your kids like?

I have a 2 y.0. and she LOVES Smarty Pants vitamins, they have a slightly granulated texture, that looks like sugar, and they aren’t that chewy.  I ordered Juice Plus for her because my OB and pediatrician both highly recommend the brand, but my kid doesn’t like the texture or chewiness of it.

What vitamins do you use with your kids and how do you like them?

Fashion Forward Mothers Bound Together by aden + anais® Bamboo Muslin

Greenista Tasha

aiden+anais® bamboo muslin swaddling blankets are, soft, luxurious, and chic.

CEO Raegan Moya-Jones, a mother herself, was hard-pressed to find the swaddles she remembered growing up in Australia when she moved to the United States and started her own family. Flash-forward: aiden + anais® was born to aid mothers everywhere in swaddling their babies in generously sized, chicly designed, gentle muslin sheets.

aiden + anais® bamboo muslin swaddling blankets go a step farther, incorporating silky bamboo fiber with natural muslin and fashion forward prints. These blankets get softer as you wash them, and they measure 47”x47”, so they’re great for babies of all sizes. Although traditionally used for swaddling, aiden + anais® also includes burp cloths, nursing and stroller covers, portable crib sheets, stroller and car seat liners, tummy time blankets, and change table covers as suggested uses for their wraps.

We like the “Mela Bamboo Swaddles”, $40.00 for a 3-pack below.
