Natural Sugar-Free Zevia Soda {Review}

We love soda, but hate the empty calories of soda. It's also though to drink normal diet soda because it has that artificial taste. Enter Zevia soda--an all natural sugar-free zero-calorie soda that is sweetened with stevia.


We enjoyed Zevia in our house so much that the pack we received for this Zevia review was gone within days! Read on for our full Zevia review.

Safer & Easier Cooking: Orgreenic Pans! {Review}



The Orgreenic pan is a green and eco-friendly alternative to regular non-stick pans.

Regular non-stick pans contain  polyfluoroalkyl compounds (PFCs), which has even been linked to babies' birth weights when the mother used non-stick pans during pregnancy.

If you are looking to avoid PFCs but still cook and clean on a non-stick surface, you need to try Orgreenic Pans!

Read on for my full Orgreenic pan review!

It's a safe and friendly game for kids to play and doesn't involve shipping costs, wrapping costs, packaging, or eventually broken parts. Membership in the game makes a great virtual gift for your child, niece, nephew, or grandchild!

I played Secret Bear World with my 4 year old son, who is fascinated by computers. He loved exploring the different parts of the secret world, including castles, the rainforest, and "stores." There are also fun racing games, a magic lamp, and other games.

We are currently on a quest for golden keys! He had a great time and I felt like it was a good, safe environment for him to play. We also used the game as an opportunity to talk about online safety.

My son had a fun opportunity to practice his fine motor skills and computer skills through movements within the games and bear world. We also enjoyed all the customizable elements of the game, such as clothing, furniture, and food.

He's asked again to play and is very excited to collect keys and visit the rest of the Bear World! This is truly a great Christmas gift for preschoolers or young children!

With Fall quickly approaching, it’s time for the leaves to change, Halloween decorations to come out, and for a chill to be in the air. One of my personal favorite parts of Fall are pumpkins. Pumpkins can be carved, painted, displayed, and even made into a tasty treat. The good news about pumpkins is that they are a very easy fruit (yes, fruit) to plant and grow.

Read on for more tips on how how and when to plant pumpkins!
