The KITLIFE Planner for 2017 is by far one of the best KITLIFE planners to date and I have had three of them prior.  Kit Life stands fro Keeping It Together and it’s a planner that offers just that.  For the working mom or stay at home mom, anyone who feels the need to keep organized by writing things down and a list maker – the KITLife Planner is for them.  When it comes to holiday gift giving – I love giving away planners because they help ring in the new year on a new foot.  KITLIFE has been a favorite of mine now for a while but they have since made quite a few changes.  I’ll have a full review and walk through coming soon.  If you enjoyed the original planner but wanted something more, I think you’ll love this one.  It’s gorgeous, bright and bold and feels so luxe and helps me with my planning.

You can purchase the KITLIFE Planner for 2017 at: http://kitlife.net/  The planners start at: $58.00 and as of today 12/21/16 the KIT Team is offering a 15% off discount of your purchase of a new planner and more.

I LOVE Tea and I think it’s a great gift to give to anyone for the holiday season.  Pique Tea has been one of my faves over the last couple of months and I definitely think it would make a fabulous gift for anyone, especially a tea drinker.  Pique Tea is Tea Crystals that dissolve in hot or cold water.  They are sugar-free and free of calories and are organic and free from artificial flavors and preservatives.  The teas offer 2x the antioxidants of leading tea bags and are sourced from top 5% of tea leaves.  These are my favorites for on the go because there are no messy tea bags, just drop the crystals in your water or liquid, stir and you’re good to go.

The eRase e60 by Emjoi ($79.95) is a fabulous gift for the beauty lover.  This top selling corded, dual speed epilator by Emjoi absolutely outshines competitors offering quick and effective removal of unwanted hair from the body and face with minimal discomfort.  It’s one of my favorite tools and I think it would make a fabulous gift.  The eRase e60 is highly effective with its 60 tweezer action discs that are arranged in skin-tautening dual opposing heads that removes hair from the root (as short as 0.3 mm), leaving the skin smooth for up to 6 weeks.

The Erase Glide Technology enables the user to glide the unit back and forth, or in a circular motion over the skin to remove hair in seconds, while also being gentle enough to remove individual facial hair on the chin or upper lip.  The eRase e60 also comes with a sensitive attachment for the epilator head, resulting in a product designed to be mild enough to remove hair where the user is most sensitive, including underarms, while still remaining easy to use and reliable.  I love that the eRase is able to remove most hair on the first past, which is perfect for my sensitive skin to help reduce skin irritation.  There are limited edition patterns and colors available and this unit is something I wish I could get for a gift under my tree.

While not a traditional gift, I think anything that allows you to filter your water would make an awesome present for anyone this holiday season.  ZeroWater offers a variety of products for your filtration needs.  The 10 Cup Ready-Pour pitcher is the first in its class that comes with a sealed lid and reservoir, making it possible to pour water that has already been filtered without spilling water that’s still filtering.

When it comes to last minute gifts, stocking stuffers tend to make that list as well since they don’t necessarily require much wrapping and are quick to get.  StickerBeans make great gifts for the little boys and girls in your life (teens and even adults included) and are so fun.  Available in two-inch, five-inch and two-feet sizes ranging in prices from $3.50 to $55.00 – StickerBeans are definitely fun.  Bling is all the rave now a days and Entrepreneurs Dana Runyon and Kim Spadaccini have created an easy way to add glitter and glitz to everything from cell phone cases to laptops, tablets and notebooks, lockers and so much more.  What I love about StickerBeans is that the designs are so fun and include a huge array of different types from emojis to cupcakes and even pizza.  For the boys there are fun sports designs and a plethora of glitzy to choose from.  Some of the designs include:  Sports StickerBeans – Basketball and Socker, Nail Polish, Unicorn, hearts and rainbows.

Shea Moisture Made to Matter Products – Peace Rose Oil Complex Nourish & Silken Shampoo and Conditioner ($10.99 each).  I’m a huge fan of the Shea Moisture products but have not tried this particular line from the brand until now.  These nourishing recipes are made with natural and certified organic ingredients and are designed to hydrate and soften dry, brittle hair.  Key Ingredients include:  Peace Rose Oil Complex (Alpine, Damask and Must Rose Oils) to help soften and silken dry hair.  Date Pam Extract to provide protective moisture barrier with sensitivity pathway blockers and Camellia Leaf Extract contains antioxidant properties, soothing minor skin and scalp irritation.  I have been LOVING these hair products and plan to have a full review up on the blog in the coming weeks.

Tom’s of Maine just launched their first natural antiperspirant for Men – Naturally Dry North Woods.  Selected for the “2016 Made to Matter-Handpicked by Target” Program. 48 Hour odor and wetness protection with no petrochemicals or artificial fragrances.  It’s also non-irritating and with every purchase Tom’s of Main donates 10% of profits back to helping people and the planet. Tom’s Main Naturally Dry Deodorant ($4.49) is reasonably priced and smells nice.  But I especially like that it will not cause irritation to my husband who has sensitive skin like me.

The Honest Company has been one my family has really grown to love.  The Organic Healing Balm ($12.95) is a favorite mainly because it is very similar to those that I currently use from other brands.  It’s an all purpose salve for dry, chafed or sensitive skin and a favorite in our household because I can easily carry it in my purse and take on the go for when I need it most.  It’s all natural, soothing and hypoallergenic which make it all great for my sensitive skin and my family.  Award winning, this balm is a must have, super versatile salve to help soothe my very dry and sensitive skin and so much more.  With organic sunflower, olive and coconut oils along with shea butter to nourish and moisturize, my dry skin gets the relief it needs.  It’s also made without petroleum, mineral oil, parabens, phthalates and synthetic fragrances, dyes and most ingredients that cause common allergies.

The Honest Company Hand Sanitizer Spray ($2.98) is also a favorite in our house.  It smells so refreshing and bright with an orange citrus scent and moisturizes with aloe vera.  Kills 99.9% of germs and bacteria, this antiseptic + moisturizer offers antimicrobial protection made with plant-based ingredients.  Soothing botanicals help to reduce drying, redness and chapping and there are no harsh chemicals.  I love that it is in a convenient (easy to travel and use on the go) packaging and it’s a favorite to always have on hand.

Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day Vinegar Gel Cleaner ($3.99) is something new to our family and I have not used it prior to this.  Heritage-inspired specialty cleaners that are bleach-free but still work hard on grease, grime and soap-residue.  Mrs. Meye’s Vinegar Gel Cleaner in Lemon Verbena smells nice and is naturally thickened vinegar with the Lemon Verbena fragrance to help clean stainless steel to a bright, brilliant shine without needed to rinse.  Use to clean countertops, the refrigerator, handles, knobs and all those little do-it-yourself vinegar jobs but with more of a pleasant scent.  I love it… I am someone who keeps a bottle of vinegar on hand just for cleaning the house and this product is awesome.

Happy Family Organics Brand Happy Tot Super Smart Organic Pears, Peas & Mangos ($1.60)  I have been seeing kiddos around our neighborhood and at football practice sipping on these pouches over the last couple of weeks and I was excited to be able to try one.  Since a toddler’s brain doubles in size from birth to age 2, it’s essential to give them the proper support for a tot’s growth.  These Super Smart pouches contain 20mg of DHA and 100mg of choline, both important nutrients to help support brain health in a growing toddler.  But, while these are formulated mainly for toddlers, the boys tried them and really enjoy it.  I know they have a variety of flavors for older kids too so we’ll be checking those out in the next week or so and stocking up.

Babyganics Moisturizing Lotion ($7.29 for 11oz bottle) is the only baby lotion designed specifically for baby’s developing skin, featuring NeoNourish Natural Seed Oil Blend and the 100% natural scent of chamomile verbena (also available fragrance free).  It’s free of parabens, sulfates, phthalates, mineral oil, petrolatum, dyes or synthetic fragrances and the boys enjoy it as well as I do.  Non-allergenic, pediatrician & dermatologist tested and never tested on animals, this is a really nice brand that includes Shea butter, Aloe, Vitamin E, Olive and Avocado Oil and the Babyganics 100% natural NeoNourish Seed Oil Blend.

Bitsy’s Brainfood Smart Crackers ($3.99) has been a fun new treat for us.  Clean Label, USDA Organic, Non-GMO, nothing artificial and low in sugar, high in nutrition with 1/2 serving of vegetables.  Smart Crackers are baked in a zero waste die and no scrap dough and the boys love that there are puzzle games on the 1005 recycled paperboard.  The crackers are made with real organic veggies and come in three yummy flavors:  Cheddar Chia Veggie, Mapple Carrot Crisp and Sweet Potato Cinna-Graham.  They are made with love in the USA in a peanut and tree nut-free bakery.  My sons really enjoy them and I think they taste really good… YUM.

Seventh Generation Laundry Detergent Packs ($12.99) include Seventh Generations trusted Free & Clear laundry formula that is now available in EPA safer Choice certified all-temperature laundry packs.  These bio-based laundry packs use quadruple-enzyme power to remove stains and leave your clothes looking good as new.  The product includes 45 toss-and-wash single-dose pods to make laundry day simple and mess-free.  Their EPA Safer Choice certification means that every ingredient in their laundry packs have been reviewed by the EPA to ensure it meets their stringent human health & environmental criteria.  What I enjoy the most about these laundry packs is that they are perfect for sensitive skin and my family is full with sensitive skin bodies.  I think this will become a favorite our ours in the future and you may see a full review on this in the months to come.

As I mentioned before, “Made to Matter – Handpicked by Target” is a collection of products of leading natural, organic and sustainable brands.  At the heart of Made to Matter is an assortment of great products made with simple, recognizable ingredients that are designed to be higher quality for everyone and accessible to anyone.  It is always a great thing to walk into my local Target store to see the “Made to Matter” logo and emblem on product displays because I know what they are about and am proud to support these brands.  This year I was introduced to brands I have never tried before and some that I have loved over the years and my family and I have been enjoying them all.

It’s always great when a company offers such great quality but higher standards and I’m excited for my readers and friends to try some of these brands for themselves.

Make sure to shop all of these amazing #MadeToMatter favorites on Target/MadeToMatter website:  http://www.target.com/c/made-to-matter or at your local Target Store.

Thank you Target and Pacifica Beauty for sending my family and I this awesome gift of goodies, we surely love them and look forward to trying more.

As a mother with skin sensitivities, I’m constantly on the hunt for products that will help to make my “mommy duties” a little less hectic and keep my family healthy.  With three boys running around and keeping active, I’m always on my toes to be one step ahead of them at all times.  Since cleaning products are a part of my every day routine in keeping the house and family in order, I’m always on the hunt for products that provide natural ingredients and a limited amount of harsh chemicals we see in most products sold in the stores today.  Since I have many sensitivities to products, I’m constantly looking for products that will not affect my Eczema or cause any skin issues for my children as well.  Recently I’ve been introduced to method laundry detergent and I’m fortunate to have found a product I know will work for my family.  Since doing laundry and keeping clothes clean are essential in any family, I wanted to share a few tips on how my family and I keep on top of these mounds of threads.

To keep our work load at a minimum for our family of five, we tend to do laundry at least 2 times a week and on average 3 or 4.  This helps to cut down the size of the load but also makes it easier so that we are not washing 5 loads of laundry in one day.  I think it is a bit more convenient for our family to drop a load in every couple of days and it keeps us on top of the laundry and piles of clothes that we often accumulate.

When using a detergent, find one that is effective and that works.  There are so many brands on the market today and it’s essential to find one that will provide you with clean clothes each and every time and still keep your colors bright and your whites – white!  The new 4x concentrated method laundry detergent has naturally derived cleaning power that is tough on dirt and stains.  It works great in cold water – which helps you use less energy for every load and it is great for pre-treating stains.

Use products that will work double-duty… make sure they are not only effective for removing stains, but also keeping your children’s clothes (and yours) fresh and smelling clean until it’s used.  With a fragrance-forward expansion of their laundry portfolio, memory laundry detergent includes a wide range of scents that are different then the same old, common laundry ones.  There is a scent for everyone from fruity (ginger mango), floral (spring garden), herbaceous-woody (beach sage and fresh clover) and for those who are sensitive to fragrance – free + clear which has no fragrance at all.  Use your favorite scents year round or change it up with the season.  This offers your household and your clothes a fresh smell all the time.  This is especially helpful for use on linens as it will offer a soft fragrance throughout the entire home.

Most importantly a laundry detergent that offers a great design for use may seem like it is not important, but it will help in saving money and time.  Have you ever experienced pouring your laundry detergent in  the included measuring cup only to spill it everywhere because the packaging was too bulky or just difficult to hold?  With an easy-to-use grip on the bottle instead of a handle, memory laundry detergent is not only easy to work with but also includes 100% post-consumer materials and is fully recyclable.  The bottle is also transparent, which means you will ensure to get down to the last drop.  No more are the days of wasting product since you can’t see what is left in a traditional detergent bottle.
