Back To The Roots Kitchen Herb Garden #GIVEAWAY Ends 10/15



Back to the Roots, the organic food and indoor gardening company, is reconnecting kids and families back to the food they eat. Through indoor gardening and windowsill grow kits, kids across the US now know that herbs and veggies don’t come from the grocery store… they come from the EARTH!

  
Back to the Roots is changing classrooms across the US with its indoor gardening kits and STEM curriculum and will soon hit its goal to grow 1 MILLION indoor gardens in kitchens and classrooms in the country this year

Top sellers include:
·       The Water Garden 2.0
·       Organic Lavender
·       Cherry Tomatoes




The 411:

What I love is that everything you need is included in the package. I have done smaller type gardens and they usually come with dirt disks for packaging. You add water to these small disks and you get a soil of some sort. BTW they never grew.  These came with the dirt already in the jars. I am already thinking this is going to work just because I didn't have to work the dirt. 




The kit also came with two packets of seeds, labels for your jars, directions and a recipe book. It told my class today that I will be bringing in special jars of dirt for our classroom garden. I think they will get plenty of sun in my room. My preschool class is excited to watch the garden grow.  Praying for the best but I will NOT be sharing my basil. They can each try it but I am taking it home. They can however have the mint leaves. Maybe we can do something with them for Christmas crafts to make them smell good. 


Back To The Roots has so many options to choose from. With Autumn coming I am thinking of getting my family the cherry tomato windowsill planter AND because I am going to miss my garden flowers the Organic Lavender windowsill planter. Check out their other windowsill planters here.

Supergirl Season 4 - WORTH THE BINGE



GUYS...I had not seen Supergirl before getting Season 4 to review. While I have NOT yet binged up to Season 4. I watched all of Season 1 this weekend. It was amazing and I do NOT know why I had been watching this all along. 

The show focus on Kara or Khara as her boss calls her. She is the cousin of Superman and was sent right after him to protect him. One problem, her pod or whatever you call her flying apparatus went off course and she slept for 24 years. When she finally found him he was grown and placed her with a foster family. 

OK that is the foundation. Kara is now grown up and working for a paper. Her boss played by Calista Flockhart wants her own superhero to be featured on her newspaper and has no idea that her assistant is a superhero. 

Her "foster sister" Alex works for The Department of Extra Normal Operations and knows exactly who Kara has always been. She has wanted to protect her from the aliens from a prison Fort Rozz that was run by Alura, Kara's mom. 

I  love the show so far. I love watching Kara learn her skills. Love the sister relationship. Love the friendship she has with James and Winn and I love the over the top theatrics of some of the fight scenes but that is what makes it so much fun. I can't wait to get into Season 2.   Hoping for more collaboration of Supergirl and Superman.

How To Care For Your Baby's Skin Properly

Babies have very delicate skin and it can be difficult to know how you should care for it properly.
The first thing to know is that your baby is going to get rashes bumps and lumps at some point,
you can’t really avoid it. A lot of parents get worried when they notice these things appearing but
as long as you know how to treat them properly and how to keep your baby’s skin healthy, you
shouldn’t have anything to worry about. Here are some simple tips on caring for your baby’s skin. 




Get The Right Products 


Firstly, you need to make sure that you are using the right products. All of the soaps that you use on
your own skin are far too harsh for a baby’s skin because they tend to be heavily perfumed. So, you
need to make sure that you are only buying specific baby soaps. All babies are different and certain
products might irritate them. That’s why it’s important that you keep an eye on them and if a product
doesn’t agree with them, you should stop using it. It might take a bit of trial and error but you will be
able to find the right products eventually. 


Diaper Rash 


Diaper rash is a common skin problem in babies and it’s usually caused by skin irritation. The good
news is, there are some simple things that you can do to prevent it. Diapers that are too tight is one
of the most obvious causes so you should consider buying a bigger size or switching to a different
brand if diaper rash is a persistent problem. Leaving a wet diaper on for too long will cause rubbing
and irritation that leads to diaper rash as well. You might not always notice right away but you need
to keep an eye on them and make sure that you’re changing their diaper as soon as you can when
they need it. When you do change their diaper, try to leave it off for a while so they are open to the air
because this will help to prevent the rash. Sometimes, it might be a particular brand of diaper,
detergent, or baby wipe that irritates their skin. If you are changing them right away and their diaper
isn’t tight, but they are still getting diaper rash, you should try changing these things and see if it
makes a difference. Once you find the right combination, it should be fine. 


If your baby has diaper rash, you can get some great treatment creams to relieve the symptoms and it
should clear up fairly quickly. If you find a good brand, it will not only treat the rash, but it will also help
to prevent it in the future. 


Cradle Cap 


Cradle cap is another skin problem that a lot of babies have, usually during the first few months. It
will usually clear up on its own within the first year, but there are some things that you can do to help
it in the meantime. It is caused by excess oil and it appears as a scaly, red rash on the scalp and
behind the ears. There are plenty of great treatment creams out there that will help to deal with it, so
speak with your doctor if you are worried about it and they will help you. You also need to think about
hair care for your baby because the products that you use might be making the problem worse. You
need to find gentle products to clean their hair if they have any. When washing their hair, take care not
to be too rough because you don’t want to irritate the rash and make it worse. Cleaning your baby’s
head properly will help to remove excess oil and can prevent cradle cap. It’s important to remember that
even if your baby does not have hair yet, you should still be using a baby shampoo to clean their hair. 


Eczema 


If you have a family history of skin conditions and allergies, your baby is more likely to develop eczema.
They will get a weepy rash on their face, elbows, chest, arms, and the back of the knees. Over time, it
can get hard and scaly and it can cause them quite a bit of discomfort so you need to find a way to treat
it. Eczema tends to have triggers so you need to be very careful about the products that you are using
and experiment with them to find ones that don’t irritate the skin. Moisturizing the skin is important as
well, but you need to make sure that you don’t over apply them because that can make the problem
worse. If their eczema is particularly bad and you cannot find a way to relieve the symptoms, speak to
your doctor and they will be able to prescribe you some medicated creams.


Prickly Heat 




If you notice small red bumps on your baby’s skin, especially around the neck, armpits, skin folds,
and diaper area, that is most likely prickly heat. These are the areas where your baby sweats the most
and if they are too warm, it can cause irritation and lead to a rash. A lot of parents make the mistake of
wrapping their baby up too warm and that leads to a problem with prickly heat. It’s not just a problem for
the summer either, it can still happen in winter if you are covering them with too many layers. The good
news is, you won’t need any creams or anything to treat it, you just need to help them cool off a bit. 


When you are at home, make sure that their environment is cool. Keep the heating turned down and
open a window or two in the summer to cool them off. When you are dressing them, you should always
go for loose fitting clothes and try to layer them up so if they get too warm, you can take a few layers off. 

Most of the skin issues that your baby will experience are normal and easily treated, but if you are
worried about something, you should always see a doctor.

How To Give Your Home A Makeover

SOURCE 

Every single person wants his or her home to look and feel perfect. Your house is a place of rest after a long day at work or school. You use this space for spending quality time with your loved ones, for hosting parties, and when you just need a night for yourself.

Remember that the aesthetics of your home always impacts your mood when you spend time there. This article will outline a few home makeover tips that will upgrade the ambiance of the place.

Set a budget for yourself and be realistic
Upgrading your home will require you to set a realistic budget aside. First, consider how much money you are making every single month. After you have paid for the monthly bills and other necessities, how much do you have left? You can dedicate a portion of the leftover amount to improving your home aesthetics.

Entering debt is never the answer because this will make you feel anxious and pressured while at home, especially if you can no longer pay for your monthly bills.

Bring in more plants
You should invest in more plants because they are a natural and easy way to improve the aesthetics and ambiance of your home. They even improve your mental state by helping you relax.

Studies have shown that plants can improve your productivity, assist with creativity, help you breathe better, and calm your heart rate.

Incorporate more tech-friendly gadgets
Today’s technologically savvy world allows you to purchase more tech gadgets within the home than ever before. Examples of this include smart home systems where you can control your entertainment system or even thermometer with simply the sound of your voice.

Technology and interior design now go hand in hand, and it is no secret that any tech you purchase makes life easier.

Embrace color
Color impacts the look and feel of your home alike. Brighter colors can make a space appear larger, as opposed to darker shades, and warm versus cool tones which can either make you feel energized or calm.

Whether you paint the walls or purchase more colorful décor, you should embrace different shades and hues of color because leaving your walls white, and blank can be uninspiring.

Why not even hire some professionals that have the tools they need to give your rooms a new coat of paint? For instance, searching online allows you to find interior painters that are located near you.

Let in light
Letting in natural light into your home can make any room appear bigger and brighter. Aside from windows, you can increase the light in your home by using lighter colors on the walls and adding more mirrors.

Adorn the walls with art
Wall art matters because it makes the space look more fun and unique. Even if you choose to paint your walls orange or red, why leave them blank? Wall art can create a focal point in the room, and if you find a painting that you like, it might even stimulate you creatively every single time that you stare at it.

Don’t forget that paintings, photographs, and other wall art can be expensive, especially if the artist is famous. If you don’t have the budget for these, but you still want to invest in some fun pieces, consider rummaging through vintage shops and flea markets. You never know what you will find, and you can guarantee that no matter what it is, it will be unique and one of a kind.

Make your hobbies more evident
Practicing a hobby or two is the perfect way to improve your mental health, so why not include them as part of your home décor? If you play the piano or guitar, display your instrument somewhere in clear sight.

If you enjoy taking photos with a professional camera, why not print some of these and adorn your walls with your own artwork? Alternatively, you can display your camera on your mantel. The next time a friend or family member enters your home, your hobby might become the topic of discussion for a while.

Landscaping the backyard
Don’t forget that the backyard is just as important as your home interior, especially during the spring and summer months. There are times when you simply want to sit outside and enjoy the sun while reading a good book. In situations such as these, you need to make sure that you have a table and chairs where you can spend some of your time.


Giving your home a makeover isn’t hard, but you shouldn’t rush into it. You want your house to be perfect, but most importantly, you don’t want to break the bank doing it.

Pampering Our Skin Has Become A "Ritual" #ritualsusa, #shareyourslowdown @ritualsusa #tryazon.


I received a Tryazon box containing some products from Rituals:


The Ritual of Sakura-Try Me Set 

• A wonderful Rituals Sakura Try Me gift set with the scent of Cherry Blossom and Rice Milk to spoil yourself or someone else.



• For centuries, the Japanese have celebrated the annual flowering of the Cherry Blossom, or Sakura. This marks an awakening of nature and symbolizes that beauty is momentary and life must be enjoyed. Inspired by this tradition, our Sakura collection blends the sweetness of Cherry Blossom with nourishing Organic Rice Milk, to make each day feel like a new beginning.



• Try Me Set Contains:
o The Ritual of Sakura Foaming Shower Gel (1.69 oz)
o The Ritual of Sakura Body Scrub (2.37 oz)
o The Ritual of Sakura Body Cream (4.40 oz)


The 411:

The first thing I noticed was the packaging the pink box with the white containers and minimal wording is already soothing and I haven't even tried it yet. I LOVE the shiny, pink top on the Body Scrub.

My skin felt amazing after just one use of the Shower gel. Which I really like. I need a large bottle of this. Even though a little goes a long way. I have used it all.

My daughter started using the body scrub before shaving and says she has never had smooth legs before. We are sharing but I think she will find a set in her stocking this year. I have been trying to get her to take better care of her skin and understand that pampering yourself pays off big time. I think she finally sees that it is worth it and that SHE is worth it.


I have been keeping the Body Cream next to my bed so when I come out of the shower I can spend time on myself. It has become a "ritual" that I should have taken up years ago. I am learning to practice what I preach and spend time on me. As a mom you put everyone ahead of yourself but it is okay to take a moment to take care of yourself!
