Rainy Days + Soccer Games = THANK GOD for Purex plus Clorox2 + #GIVEAWAY ends 5/25

If you've read my Blog for any length of time you have seen me post about many Purex products in the past.   I've been a BIG  fan of Purex Natural Elements because it's been a great way to go green and not have to compromise on how clean my laundry gets.

The newest member to the Purex Family is Purex plus Clorox2. This detergent is specially formulated with Clorox 2 stain-fighting enzymes to remove the toughest stains. Works with all washing machines, including High-Efficiency. It  has made an appearance in my house at the MOST PERFECT TIME. Travel Soccer has started and so has the rainy season-for us it's April/May Showers bring June Flowers.  That means muddy Soccer uniforms, sweaty stinky socks and just a  whole lot of  YUCK!!!

About the Product
  • Works with 100 stains
  • Contains a powerful boost of Clorox 2 stain fighters
  • Safe for colors because it contains no chlorine bleach
  • great as a pre-treat : applying some detergent directly to stains and rub into fabric. Allow formula to sit on stains for 5 minutes. For added power, use ¾ cap of detergent in wash.

Purex  Plus Clorox 2  is  available in two scents: Original Fresh and Sunny Linen. If your not a huge fan of laundry (like this Mama) with these great scents you will not mind the few extra loads having an active family will give you.

#MothersDay Gift Idea @helenficalora jewelry

It’s just about Mother’s Day! So I'm going to be sharing some unique gifts I think would make any Mom's day great! Last year I got to work with this great company and I thought they are worth mentioning again.
  Whether you’re a mom or have one in your life, a girl  can always  use a little sparkle! HelenFicalora is the place to go for it! The collection is amazing you will find a piece that will fit every woman's style and every budget.

Presentation of a product  says a lot about the company, and the presentation of this box received an A+. This is a  company that obviously cares about their customers and the gift recipients. From the hand tied bow on the gorgeous hot pink box too all the pink tissue paper--All I need to do is find a sweet gift bag and I'm all set!

The box opened up in a unique way, like its own miniature jewelry box. 

This is one gift Mom will treasure forever!

GO GREEN! A Family Guide to a Sustainable lifestyle #EcologicalFootprint @EddaUSA #earthday

GO GREEN! A Family Guide to a Sustainable lifestyle is a must have this Earth Day!! 

This book gives the family opportunities to spend time together and see how they can transform their lifestyle to becoming more healthier & greener.

Calculating your families footprint is determined by four parts

1 Carbon footprint
2 Food footprint
3 House footprint
4 Good & Services footprint

We should have a common goal to make a smaller footprint.  I think making a smaller carbon footprint is where our family does pretty good:
follow the three R's REDUCE REUSE RECYCLY
stop junk mail
walk, bike, or car pool

 While  reading this book I found working on the other three wouldn't take that much effort! Here are a few tips  to help you reduce.


buy at local markets or grow your own food
reducing you use of plastic bags and bottles


clean with all natural cleaners
choose recycled or sustainable furniture
plant a tree in your yard
don't wash your car too often


Don't throw away old books recycle/donate


Don't buy the newest X Box game if you
 know your best friend already has it- 
ask to borrow it or start a game exchange group.
 I really loved this tip-- Instead of buying a friend a new sports 
bag for her Birthday, take her on an outdoor adventure course!

There are many things we NEED but more often we rush into
 things we WANT and don't think about the impact
 it has on our footprint.


Many products make our lives better and increase our status...they also distract us from what's important and cause clutter in our lives!

I hope you are enjoying this look into GO GREEN! YOU CAN FIND 
IT AT BARNES & NOBEL or AMAZON  (Edda USA;$12.95/hardcover)

GO GREEN! A Family Guide to a Sustainable lifestyle #ChoosingChange #earthday @EddaUsa

~RE-POST~ Because it's a great book!

Being mindful of your values is an important part of going green. It involves  a lot of responsible, and often difficult choices every day!
The book DISNEY GO GREEN! (Edda USA  SRP $12.95/hardcover) includes interesting facts and tips on how to make great choices to a more sustainable life. It will develop values so we can live within the limits of the earth resources. NOT everyone has the same ideas of what constitutes sustainability, but we can focus on what we do have in common- HELPING OUR PLANET!

We can choose change in many aspects - while it may take us out of our comfort zone it is whats best for us and best for the environment.For families looking for great advice about sustainability GO GREEN! is the perfect resource.




Turn off the TV and play outside- you may find a new passion in hiking, biking or swimming-all great actives that don't harm the earth.

Visit a local farmers market-local foods require less packaging, you can find a greater verity and your dollars go right into the farmers pockets. Also your family will be enjoying the health benefits of eating fresh!

Making a bird feeder with gelatin powder and birdseed- you can later watch as all your feathery  friends come and feed.

Sustainability is a simple yet HUGE idea. To do it we have to rethink many of our choices and what we consider important in life.

I've got to #Upcycle That! Ideas and Inspiration from Pinterest

Finding new  ways I can do more to GO GREEN is a goal every year for me. As Earth Day (4/22) approaches I look to Pinterest for some creative "UP CYCLES" I could try out this year. 

What Is Upcyling? It is the process of converting old or discarded materials into something useful and often beautiful.

Here are a few that got my attention.

Shared by Jess Abbott > Sewing Rabbit  PIN HERE UP CYCLE BABY  BLANKET TO PJ's!

CUTE in theory but 
Son blanket has felt so much love
this one might not work

UP CYCLING CLOTHES is HUGE in our house...thrift shopping can lead to some great deals on T-Shirts that daughter and I just love but might not fit or have small holes so we see if  they can be given a new life.

Check out this  fun board Shared by: Melissa C. Loving this T-Shirt up cycle.

I know this is a style my daughter
 would try- Check out one she did
