Mama Cloth: a review

Mama Cloth: a review

My 13-year-old self would SO NOT have been okay with the idea of using reusable cloth menstrual pads. Periods are gross and we need to use bleached, disposable products to be clean. Right? Luckily, a few years into my teenagehood I came to my senses and started using a reusable menstrual cup. And here I […]

Giveaway! The Secret Mountain: 4 Books in review

Four-year-old Babe is a lover of the arts. While she seems to detest jazz these days (Papa is a jazz musician and we think she might be rebelling), she just adores classical music (calls it ballet music) and of course, she loves books. So Sleep Softly: Classical Lullabies by Brahms, Schubert, Satie, Debussy, was not a […]

Mixed Chicks kid’s shampoo/ conditioner review

Babe is a curly girl. Her fine, blonde hair dreads overnight and has caused a little more stress than either of us would like. I, too, am a curly girl, but I wasn’t aware that I was all that different until 11 or 12 years old. Babe seems to feel it already at the age […]

Giveaway: Case Studio Custom Smartphone case + 25$ off (for all readers!)

I never thought I’d own a cellphone. Now that I’ve had one for over two years, I actually can’t imagine not having one. I don’t have a data plan and just “make do” with wireless,  which admittedly scares me, but is useful. The iPhone 4, which I still have, replaced the oldest, pinkest Samsung flip-phone […]

Review: Oops! I wish I had known this before-- The Parenting Handbook

Review: Oops! I wish I had known this before– The Parenting Handbook

One of the first things I remarked about OOPS! the Parenting Handbook: I Wish I Had Known This Before, was its size. It’s thin–100 pages long. A parenting book that a parent can actually find time to read. The second thing, the author who is  clearly well educated, doesn’t overwhelm us with big words. A […]

Mama Yoga and the Story of Namaste: Book review

I am so grateful for the amount of work I have these days. The month of February was a little too intense– I was teaching one or two, sometimes three yoga classes every day. I am moving more and more towards teaching adults– pregnant women and women who are trying to conceive. Still, however, mom […]

Book Review- Meditation as a Way of Life: Philosophy and Practice

Bookshelves. Don’t you love looking at other peoples’ bookshelves? It can give you insight into a friend’s interests, who they are, or what they aspire to be like. I have multiple bookshelves. Some of my book collections are on the shelves of other people. One of my favourite bookshelves is the one at my school, […]

Teaching Kids to be Good People: Book review and giveaway

Annie Fox had my attention in the opening pages of her book, Teaching Kids to Be Good People: Progressive Parenting for the 21st Century “One of the hardest things to master, aside from parallel parking, is staying cool in the face of destructive emotions–your own or someone else’s.” This year, I’ve concurred not only driving […]

Conceiving Healthy Babies Book review and Giveaway

The white book with the cute naked baby on the cover, sat on my shelf for a long time. It sat there and got covered by other books because conceiving babies was just about the last thing on my mind. For the record, Bug is 21 months old and I still don’t have my period. […]
