Clean Your Mouth the Green Way with Himalaya

Clean Your Mouth the Green Way with Himalaya
Written By Renee Arbia

Sponsored By Himalaya Botanique Toothpaste and Moms Meet
I received this product for free from Moms Meet ( to use and post my honest opinions. Compensation for this post was provided and this page may contain affiliate links.

I like to consider myself and our family a very green family. We try our best to recycle, reduce and reuse as many things as possible. We try to eat a lot of organic and vegan friendly foods. We even make some of our own soaps, detergents and cleaners. However, some things are harder to switch to green living than others. Toothpaste for us is a hard one. My husband and I are very set in our dental hygiene ways. Our five year old son, Xavier uses toothpaste made by natural ingredients, but my husband and I could not find one that we liked the taste of and trusted for our oral hygiene. We are excited to introduce Himalaya Botanique which offers a full line of clinically studied herbal formulations, certified USDA organic single herbs and body care products.

Himalaya Botanique Toothpaste has a great taste and a long lasting flavor. I especially liked that it does not have a bitter after taste like many natural toothpastes. Himalaya uses an herbal formulation that helps to remove plaque, support healthy looking gums, and maintain white teeth. Himalaya Botanique Toothpaste comes in seven varieties; Whitening Complete Care Simply Peppermint, Whitening Complete Care Simply Mint, Compete Care Simply Peppermint, Simply Mint, Simply Cinnamon, Simply Spearmint, and the original Neem and Pomegranate toothpaste. 

All seven varieties are gluten free and free from harmful ingredients like Carrageenan, Fluoride and SLS. Himalaya uses ingredients such as the Neem leaf, pomegranate, Triphala, Xylitol and the Whitening toothpastes use Papain and Bromelain, the enzymes from papaya and pineapple, to remove surface stains.

A week after using the Whitening Complete Care Simply Mint my teeth were much brighter. I liked that it did not increase the sensitivity of my teeth like most whitening products. It was much milder and made my mouth feel refreshed. 

Our entire family loves all the different flavors. It is great to have a real clean mouth that is not cleaned with harmful ingredients. We love the toothpaste and that the Himalaya Botanique company gives back to the community by supporting community health, sustainable farming and environmental responsibility. You can visit to join Himalaya’s sampling program, where you can receive additional samples and coupons. Himalaya Botanique Toothpaste comes in a nice big tube and is reasonably priced. We were very impressed with this toothpaste and hope that more people will try it out. Himalaya should be the next big name in your bathroom.

Transform Your Kitchen with Youcopia

Transform Your Kitchen with Youcopia

I wrote this post while participating in a campaign and received a gift to thank me for my time. All views and opinions with regard to the products or company itself are my own and were not influenced or reviewed by the company prior to posting. I am disclosing this according to the FTC guidelines.

It is the end of the year and we are cleaning out the old to make way for the new. I like to organize the kitchen in time for the holidays. It makes it much easier to cook and clean quickly, so we have more time with friends and family.

I really wanted to organize our kitchen cupboards. Now that I have a crawling and scooting four month old daughter and a happy to help four year old son I was able to get the cupboards organized and cleaned safely and quickly with the help of Youcopia.

Youcopia helps you simplify and enjoy your life with their line of home organizers that you can buy from Target. I decided to try out Youcopia’s new Store More Adjustable Lid Holder, Stora Stack for Drawers, and Spice Steps. They are great for organizing pot and pan lids, Tupperware and your herbs and spices.

I started organizing our spice cupboard.

The spice cupboard BEFORE Youcopia Spice Steps

I love how the YoucopiaSpice Steps are easy to use with no mounting or installation. The Youcopia Spice Steps lets you maximize space with four tiers instead of the standard three tiers. 

I also like that it comes with 48 pre-printed labels and 48 blank labels that allow you to label the bottle caps with the included stickers to quickly find your spices. 

The Spice Steps holds 24 standard size spice bottles. It also works great in your pantry for cans, jars and baby food.

The Tupperware cupboard BEFORE Youcopia Stora Stack.

The second cupboard I decided to organize was the Tupperware cupboard. It is always so hard to store containers and lids. I can never store them and still make them easy to find quickly when you need them. 

I was impressed with the Youcopia Stora Stack for Drawers. This also required no permanent mounting or installation. It even expands to lock into standard kitchen drawers. I do not have my Tupperware in drawers we keep it in the cupboard, but I was still able to organize with the Youcopia Stora Stack forDrawers by using it in the bottom of the cupboard. I stored the matching sets on the Stora Stack and the rest behind it. 

The Stora Stack comes with two clip dispensers that can be positioned as needed to hold two container stacks in place. The individual slots keep the matching lids upright so everything stays tidy and easy to find. You can organize twelve plastic food containers from top grocery brands on the YouCopia StoraStack

The pot and pan cupboard BEFORE Youcopia Lid Holder.

The last cupboard I organized was the hardest and turned out the best in my opinion. I never can find a good way to store pot and pan lids. They take up so much room and finding the lid you need in a hurry was always hard to do. I love the Youcopia Store More Adjustable Lid Holder. It was so simple to use with no mounting or installation. It saves a lot of cupboard space by storing your lids vertically. It comes with seven coated steel secure wire dividers with a U shape to accommodate different types of lid handles. 

They are easy to use and divide up according to how your pan lids fit. I found it so easy to use and I can even store the extra large lids behind it!

I really love how all of the kitchen cupboards turned out. It is easy to find things quickly, and it has made things go much more smoothly in the kitchen. I really enjoy organizing and home improvement projects. I was very satisfied with the sophistication, durability and how easy the Youcopia products are to use.

Youcopia definitely helped me simplify my life by helping me keep my kitchen organized so this holiday season I can spend more time with our friends and family, and focus on what really matters.

Go Green with WaterWipes

Written By Renee Arbia

This post was sponsored by WaterWipes as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central. I received complimentary products to facilitate my review.

Our sweet daughter, Imogen is now three weeks old. It is hard to believe she has been here so long, yet we cannot imagine our lives without her. She is very much like most newborns and enjoys constant snuggling, eating and pooping. I am so grateful to have this time with her. I am really glad that we have started living a green lifestyle with Imogen. We have always been healthy and environmentally conscious, but we became more so when Xavier was born, and much more now that Imogen is here.

Like the rest of our family and like most newborns, Imogen has very dry, sensitive skin. I am so glad that I started making a lot of our own soaps and detergents. It has saved me from trying to find lots of new alternatives to things. I have been slowly going through our routines and trying to find greener solutions to our every day lives. With the arrival of Imogen, I realized we had an area of our daily routine that I have over looked. We use wipes all the time. We keep them in the car, bathrooms, my purse and the diaper bag. I use them all the time to wipe hands, faces, boogers, counter tops, pets, toilet seats, floors and of course the four buns of the family members in our house as well as countless visiting family and friends. I realized that I needed to find an affordable, green version of wipes that would be durable enough to withstand our family, but to also be natural on our skin and good for the environment. I realize that the best solution would be for me to make our own wipes, but I really cannot handle any more laundry at this point in our lives so we prefer to still buy wipes. However, I wanted to find a wipe that was natural and not loaded with a ton of chemicals and ingredients. I wanted a safer and natural version for our family.

We decided to go to our favorite store for anything you could possibly need for a baby, Babies “R” Us, where they had a big selection of all types of natural wipes. That is where I saw WaterWipes (Find at a store near you) for an extremely affordable price. WaterWipes are wipes that are chemical free. They only contain two ingredients, 99.9% pure Irish water and 0.1% grapefruit seed extract. WaterWipes are the perfect affordable, natural and safe option for your family.

I love how durable WaterWipes are. I was skeptical because I like a wipe that is very durable. WaterWipes stood the test to our many stunts and uses of them. WaterWipes are strong enough to scrub the tile floor, yet gentle enough for our newborns bottom. We never have to worry about where, who or what we wipe due to no chemicals in the WaterWipes.

We did find some tips when we used them such as; WaterWipes are used best when kept in their own packaging where extra water is placed to help keep them moist. If you do not use them for a while, we found that if you shake the package around, they will moisten.

We now stock our household with WaterWipes and in doing so we have taken another big green step towards a greener and cleaner future for our families.

WaterWipes are fully stocked at your favorite stores, like Babies “R”Us, where you can shop at ease for the world’s purest baby wipe.

To find out more about WaterWipes follow them on their social media pages and find them at a store near you!

Enter to win one of five (5) $100 Babies “R” Us gift cards!
Contest opens on July 28, 2016 and closes on August 18, 2016
I-C will randomly select winners from all program entries and will facilitate fulfillment of the winning prizes (5 winners).

Bring Cardinal Health Home

Bring Cardinal Health Home
Written By Renee Arbia

Cardinal Health sent this product to try, and donated to a charity of my choice.

During the child bearing years for many women we end up going through a lot of health hurdles and are in need of a lot of medical products, not just for ourselves, but for our spouses, children and even sometimes parents or other family members. We may get minor surgeries, have babies, recover from an illness or have a bad injury. We are running around taking care of everyone except ourselves. Or perhaps we are caring for someone who requires attentive details to their medical needs.  

Cardinal Health knows how busy our lives are and how important it is to be able to heal comfortably at home. Cardinal Health makes medical products and services that are used at many major hospitals and institutions throughout the United States. They now are introducing a line of at-home products to promote comfort and independence while healing.

Between minor surgeries, having a baby and taking care of our elderly parents, there are many times that after spending endless hours at a hospital, we would get discharged only to then be handed a list of things we have to get for medical care. You then have to try to get to the right drugstore that has the right item you need. Cardinal Health Quality At-Home Products make the transition from hospital to home recovery a smoother and more successful one. Cardinal Health combined professional quality products with the ease of at-home use and offers a full line of products for consumers, including, Advanced Wound Care, First Aid, Personal Care and Home Healthcare Products. These products are very beneficial in the healing process. Proper post-hospital care is important to avoid re-admission.

Cardinal Health offers Perineal Cold Packs for new moms. Millions of new moms experience a postpartum period for up to six to eight weeks after giving birth and are very swollen and sore. Cardinal Health Perineal Packs are made of a soft material and provide comfortable, effective pain relief with an absorbent pad, and safe, controlled cold therapy. They come in a 2-pack and are a wonderful combination of an absorbent pad and cold pack, which would ease any new moms recovery.

Finding the right health supplies should never be an issue. When you need health products Cardinal Health is always there, at the hospital with you, and now, your Cardinal Health products will be waiting for you when you are healing at home.

Sponsored: New Products for Newborns 2015

 I wrote this post while participating in a campaign by Tomoson and received a gift and or payment to thank me for my time. All views and opinions with regard to the products or company itself are my own and were not influenced or reviewed by the company prior to posting. I am disclosing this according to the FTC guidelines.

Sponsored: New Products for Newborns
Written By Renee Arbia

September is not just the start of the fall season, but it is also a very popular month to give birth. It usually is in the top three, rotating a little each year between being the most popular month along with June and August. With school in session I am able to visit a lot of new moms and see a lot of newborns and interact with moms and babies. What I think is awesome, are all the new products that are now out. In only three years since I had my son there are already some great new products on the market for babies. Here are two that are extremely popular and after testing, letting other moms test, washing, dirtying, tugging, more borrowing and testing they not only met Next Generation Stay At Home Mom approval, but are very popular to many other parents who have them or tried them out.

Two of the biggest things that moms of 2015 started using more are, ring sling baby carriers, and muslin baby blankets. These are two products that not only do moms use; they typically named these as “life savers” in the parenting world. The next time you, go to a baby shower, visit a new mom, register for a baby shower (Check out our sponsor, Target for babyregistries), or purchasing for your baby, be sure to get a ring sling and a pack of muslin baby blankets.

Most parents of this generation know how important baby wearing is and how wonderful it is to try to wear your baby. Baby wearing is great for bonding, breastfeeding, hands free snuggles, getting things done and settling your baby. Most of the time the problem is not that we do not WANT to wear our babies it is that we cannot find a comfortable way to do so that is also easy to use, durable and safe.

Mamaway, an Australian company has brought back the baby ring sling style that was popular in the early 2000s where you would have a sling to carry your baby in. The problem with sling carriers was that you were carrying baby lying down on your hip. The new way to carry your baby is facing you inward, in a seated position. It should almost look like your baby is seated in a mini seat in front of you. This is the best and safest position to carry baby. (According to the American Academy of Pediatrics) Newborns have their head supported, and older babies can sit with their head out of the sling to look around. The ring sling also allows you to put baby securely on your hip.

The Mamaway Ring Sling Baby Carrier takes the ease of having only the one piece cloth  type carrier and adds a durable Nylon ring (tested to hold a toddler) for guaranteed support so that you do not have to rely solely on your knot tying abilities. The lightweight fabric is 100% cotton, machine washable and dries quickly while it is hanging. (Must hang dry)

I especially loved the sewn in pocket for storage. Folding it into it is a little challenging, but in a pinch you can just stuff it in the pocket and deal with it later. The Mamaway Ring Sling Baby Carrier is one size fits all and fully adjustable. It works for everyone size Petite to Plus. It is easy to use and adjust. Mamaway has some great videos on their website that walk you through exactly how to use it their ring sling carrier. It is great for babies all the way through the toddler age. I love how it is easy to adjust, it holds a lot of weight, but is still a breathable, lightweight fabric. The fabric also wipes clean depending on the spill.

Wearing your baby is important for their development and your sanity. Parents know the amazing benefits of wearing their baby, they just give up trying to find the right carrier for them. Get the Mamaway Ring SlingBaby Carrier for the new parents in your life.

Muslin Cotton is a very pure and gentle type of cotton that is very breathable and soft, which makes it perfect for swaddling a baby. Muslin cotton blankets are the new “receiving blanket” of baby showers. What once was a thick cotton blend that was a little bit bigger than a hand towel type of receiving blanket has been replaced by these large muslin cotton swaddling blankets. More and more new moms are registering for muslin cotton baby blankets and it is easy to see why they love them so much.

Unlike the old receiving blanket muslin cotton blankets typically come in a pack of three and are huge, 48 x 48” to be exact. The reason they are bigger is so that you can properly swaddle your baby with some to spare. The muslin cotton is more breathable so it is perfectly safe and gentle for sensitive skin.

Not only are muslin cotton blankets super soft and cuddly they are very fashionable, right now in the world of parenting. These, Muslin Cotton Swaddle Blankets come in Chevron, Cross and Arrow patterns in the three-pack packaging. When my son was born only three years ago, we had swaddle blankets and receiving blankets. The receiving blankets we did not use very much, they were too small to lie on the floor so he could play on them, and they were too small to swaddle him in, I basically used them as extra burp cloths. The muslin cotton blankets are lighter, bigger, easy to use for swaddling, playing, and easier to clean!

I love when they improve on products that we know and love. It is amazing to see the parenting industry really listen to real parents and make more products easy for us to use. After all parents should be focused on the most important job of all, snuggling their new baby!
