Seventh Generation Multipurpose Wipes

Image
Once again, I've partnered with Generation Good to talk about their new product, Seventh Generation Multi-Purpose wipes. I know we've all got those Lysol or Clorox wipes tucked away under the sink for when we're cooking with yuckies and this is Seventh Generation's take on those products. First of all, you will be really impressed with the ingredients list on the package. No muss, no fuss, easy to understand ingredients. The scent isn't "fake lemon" or "pretend clean laundry" it's really made from actual mint. At first, I thought the mint scent would be off-putting for cleaning, but I actually really appreciate it. It's really strong scented and powers through even the toughest of messes and odors.

I have been using these wipes to clean up the animal, kid, and kitchen messes and they really work great. I am all about the environment and these have a good footprint that you don't have to feel guilty about at the end of the day. They …

Seventh Generation Baby Wipes! ;

Image
I am a firm believer in keeping baby wipes around my house for anytime my little tornado makes a mess. But, everyone in my family has eczema and allergies, so it's hard to find a product that I can trust won't mess with my son's sensitive skin. So when I got the chance to partner with Generation Good and try out Seventh Generation's baby wipes, I jumped up and down at the opportunity. As you know, I've partnered with them in the past and tried out lots of crazy good products like laundry detergent and diapers.

First of all, not all baby wipes are made equal. I think we can all agree there are a couple of things that can make baby wipes REALLY unpleasant like smells, thinness (nobody wants their hand in doody), and ingredients that will irritate sensitive skin on kiddos. I couldn't believe my eyes when I got the package of wipes and turned it directly to the ingredients. There were only 8 ingredients listed!!!! If you look at typical wipes, there are 50 ingredi…

Bring it on 2019 and Happy Birthday Tristan!

So, it's officially my first blog post of the new year! December 2018 kicked me in the you know what. It was a long and trying time. We had lots of financial and emotional setbacks and it felt like it was going to kill us slowly. 2019 started off in a rocky way as well when my teeth grinding (stress related, of course) pinched the trigeminal nerve in my face. I am still recovering from that. It's better in the morning and then through the course of the day, the swelling gets worse and I get dizzy and painful and have to take it easy. Saturday I felt overly frustrated, but then I decided I am going to kick this year's ass. I went back into keto mode hardcore (currently on day 3, no cheats, no ifs, and, or buts) and I've even started exercising using the Nintendo Switch's few fitness games it has. I only started with 15 minutes because I'm SO out of shape.

But, I'm killing it. Even though I have to lay down forever in the evenings, I'm going to kick this …

Let's talk Seventh Generation Laundry Detergent

Image
I am super enthusiastic about my latest partnership through Generation Good! A few weeks ago, I got chosen to sample their new free and clear laundry pods. I have officially tried them out and what can I say? The product is great. Let's talk Seventh Generation in general. I'm sure you've seen their products at places like Target. Seventh Gen is all about making products that are good for the environment and good for people. Their goal is to get rid of all of these harsh, nasty chemicals that all of our products are filled with and replace them with sustainable products that aren't going to kill the environment for our kiddos in the future. I think most anyone can get behind that philosophy.

And with everything we see on the news about how these products are just killing our environment, you just NEED to get behind these products for everyone's sake.

The laundry pods boast tons of great features:

No dyes, no fragrances, MADE for sensitive skin.EPA reviewed and chose…
