Mudderella Whistler 2015

“I participated in an Influencer Campaign on behalf of Influence Central for Mudderella. I received complimentary admission to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.”

Our excitement was building up as we drove from Vancouver to Whistler for Mudderella 2015, the first and only full-day “athletic” event series designed for women, by women, to challenge all-round strength, balance, endurance and agility in a team environment. It was the first time any of us would be participating in a mud-run obstacle course, and as we got closer to “Mudderella Village” our nerves started to kick in.

You could feel the buzz as soon as we stepped out of the car, teams of women getting pumped to rock Mudderella. As we worked our way through the registration, we had one last shot of tequila to warm up our bodies and cheers to Liz’s birthday. Hahaha. We were pumped and ready to rumble, but first we had to hit up “The Works” and put the finishing touches on our team spirit!

After some temporary tattoos on and face paint, Muddy Mamitas were ready to rumble. We headed up to the starting line, where everyone was led into a brief warm up and then off we went.

I thought that the beginning would be “easy,” but boy was I wrong. Hahaha, the first 3KM was a steep hike up Blackcomb Mountain. But, you know what? After that steep 3KM hike, I felt like I could do anything. And I was determined to keep positive and take Mudderella by storm, while being strong, having fun and enjoying the day with my Muddy Mamitas.

There were some moments where members of our team were exhausted and felt like throwing in the towel, but we banded together as a team and encouraged one another to keep on going. Positive words and acts of kindness because we were a TEAM and were going to complete the course together.Ninaonthemoon-Muddderella2015WhistlerBC-LatinaBloggerVAncouver

One of the most beautiful things that I witnessed on the Mudderella course is how teams would encourage one another. For example, one of our members was having trouble with an obstacle course and after several tries decided that she wanted to “bypass” the obstacle. But as she was heading down, another team shouted YOU CAN DO IT, DON’T GIVE UP! And other teams joined in on rallying for her. And they made her get back up there, and even gave her a push up, and just like that…she climbed the wall! The roars were loud once she got up the wall and down the other side. It was electric and we felt so proud.Ninaonthemoon-Mudderella2015Whistler-OwnYourStrong-LatinaBlogger

I had never been a part of something where the energy  was so contagious and where other teams were so encouraging and motivating. It was such a wonderful experience. I think that my favourite obstacle was the last one “Hat Trick” where we had to climb up a rope and go down a huge slide into a pool of glacier cold water. Brrr

We thoroughly enjoyed Mudderella from start to finish, and are already looking forward to next year. If you have ever wanted to participate in a mud-run obstacle course, you should definitely do it. The sense of accomplishment and PRIDE once you complete the course is amazing. I felt like I could do anything. And the last time I had that feeling was when I birthed my Little Moon, lol.


Remember, you are strong enough to do anything you set your mind to! I would love to hear if you have you participated in a mud-run before?

Little Lime by Limeapple, Age Appropriate Girls Clothes.

Shopping is a ton of fun, especially when I am buying cute things for Little Moon. Sometimes I can spend hours browsing through online shops and even fill up my cart, but when I’m about to “check-out” there’s always something that holds me back, especially when I am shopping for Luna. I always seem to have these two questions on my mind when shopping online…

  • Is this age appropriate?

I feel like society is geared towards making kids grow up so quickly. I am glad that Summer is over because it was really hard to find some “normal” shorts for Luna. I mean I kept on finding short shorts and even crop tops or “shark bite” shirts. I often found myself in the little boys section and buying her shorts from that department because the shorts were actually knee length or just above the knee. Oh gaaaaaawsh, and don’t even get me started on finding age appropriate bathing suits for toddlers. Why do only boys get long sleeved rash-guards and board shorts?! Ugh, that’s a post for another day..

Pffft, which reminds me, the other day we were in a children’s department store and walked by the underwear area, and there were PADDED BRAS! I couldn’t believe it, why would someone make a padded bra for a LITTLE GIRL? Way to set “standards” and brain wash her into thinking she needs to appear “bigger.” Just let little girls be little girls. Oh,and have you seen some of the children’s Halloween costumes, specifically little girls costumes?

Oh right, on to question number two… (I got distracted, sorry).

  • How is the quality?

One of the disadvantages of buying online is that you never know how the quality of the garment is until you receive it. Sometimes, you can receive pieces from the same store that have different quality, its happened to me a couple of times. You order something that looks nice in the photo and when you receive it, it doesn’t look as good/high quality.

So one day while browsing online I stumbled upon Limeapple, a Canadian brand that believes in little girls being little girls for as long as possible. And that’s evident in their wide variety of feminine, fun girls’ clothes that range in sizes 12 months to 14 that fit, flatter, move and breathe.adelinalittlelimebylimeapple-ninaonthemoonreview-latinablogger-ageappropriategirlsclothes

I absolutely fell in love with the energetic, bright, comfortable and age-appropriate clothes. One Little Lime set that really caught my eye was Adelina. I mean, just look at the cascading hearts, bright pink and stripes. Cute, right? I couldn’t wait to receive our Little Lime set to put it to the test.

I was pleasantly surprised when I received our Adelina set. It’s even cuter in person, very age appropriate. But, what I was impressed by the most, was the quality. The fabric feels AMAZING. The fabric has a bit of spandex which helps it retain its shape after so much play (and washing)! After months of washing, the colour is just as vibrant as the first day we received it. And the shape has kept up as well. Luna is wearing a size 2T, which gives her some growing room :)ninaonthemoon-littlelimeageappropriatetoddlergirlsclothes-canadiankidsbrand-limeapple


Luna has been wearing her Adelina set for several months now and we love how comfortable it is. It fits Luna perfectly; breathable (not tight), and allows Luna to move around comfortably and play while looking super cute. There is no need to sacrifice comfort for style!

Limeapple sets and individual pieces can be mixed and matched, or worn separately, creating unique and fun outfits, which rocks for when your child wants to start picking out (styling) their own clothes.


Limeapple offers comfortable styles that are as easy to wear as they are fun to look at, take a look at, which set catches your eye?

ChooMee, The Perfect Snack Pouch Solution™!

I remember when baby food only came in bulky glass jars and cup. Parents weren’t able to give their baby/toddler the glass jar full of puree, because of 1) glass is breakable and 2)what a mess. Baby food in glass jars is a thing of the past!  Baby food has taken a a new shape; flexible, resealable pouches are quickly replacing traditional bulky glass jars and cups.

Resealable pouches are very convenient, they allow parents and babies a bit of independence and freedom when it comes to feeding. We use food pouches when we know we are going to be out for a couple of hours. Oh, and we love to use them during road-trips. Pouches come in a multitude of brands, flavours, stages and sizes, but they ALL have on thing in common: A sharp, rigid, plastic spout that their food dispenses from.

Although we love our pouches, we often hesitated to give Lunita one because she would squeeze the pouch and food would EXPLODE in every direction and when she was teething, she would bite the spout and hurt her gums. So, we found ourselves holding the pouch while she sucked the food, in order to regulate the mess. More than often pouch feeding results in: a crying child, a mushy mess, wasted food and wasted money.

choomee-sipnsofttop-perfectsnackpouchsoloution-review-vancouverblogger-latinamombloggerThat is until I discovered ChooMee Sip’n Soft Top. ChooMee created the first and only pouch top providing flow control and cap. The Sip’n soft top is a chewy silicone valve used for pouch feeding which provides multiple features and critical benefits for both baby and parent. Honestly, the ChooMee Sip’n Soft Top has probably been one of my favourite baby product finds because not only has it made my job a little easier, but it has helped Little Moon’s independence. I am no longer having to hold the pouch, or hover over her when she holds the pouch on her own because I know that there won’t be any mess. Ugh, I remember how she would freak out when I would hold the pouch because she wanted to hold it all on her own, but I wouldn’t let her because she would squeeze the pouch and the food would just go everywhere…stains on her clothes, wasted food and money.

Luna also enjoys chewing on the Sip’n Soft Top, especially when she is teething, so it serves as a double purpose. It is BPA and Pthalate free, so no need to fret.

ChooMee Sip’n Soft Top easily attaches to food pouches to ensure that you maximize  pouch performance. Make sure to push down until you hear a “click” to ensure the cap is on securely, or you can have a mess on your hands. SIP IT: Attach to pouch to protect child’s mouth and control the flow of food. CAP IT: Fold-over cap to securely close your pouch when baby feels full. Can save for later.STRAP IT: Wrap the strap around your pouch top to easily pair them on-the-go.


Forget the chewing and squeezing that leads to spilling and screaming, ChooMee is The Perfect Snack Pouch Solution. 4 key benefits:

  1. Protect Mouth: The Sip’n features a  chewy soft silicone valve designed to fully cover the rigid plastic spout of  a pouch. Finally baby can comfortably chew away while snacking.
  2. Prevent Spills:  The Sip’n includes a critical flow control valve that prevents the mess and keeps food within pouch where it belongs, until there is pressure from sipping (Sip’n!)
  3. Maximize Nutrition:By controlling pouch flow and preventing spills, the Sip’n not only minimizes pouch waste but can also maximizes baby’s caloric intake. Every healthy sip counts and using a Sip’n soft top means more food makes it to their little mouth.
  4. Promote Independence: Transitioning from milk to solid food is a significant stride toward independence. A heavy weight is lifted when baby no longer depends on mom for each individual bite. Our Sip’n eliminates pouch frustration and allows babies to hold and eat on their own.

ChooMee Sip’n Soft Top is reusable. It’s super easy to clean with soapy water. It’s also resistant to both food odors and colour stains, so you don’t have to worry. The Sip’n Soft Top can also be purchased in a convenient travel case and is available in 4 different colours, make sure to check out the different Sip’n Soft Top packs available at

I’d love to know whether or not you have heard or used of ChooMee Sip’n Soft Top before.

Living a natural lifestyle, starting in the bathroom in 10 Easy Steps.

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #NaturalGoodness #CollectiveBias

Living a natural lifestyle is about making healthier choices, and in our home, it’s a  family affair. Making healthier choices doesn’t necessarily  mean you have to spend a ton of money, like some people believe. It’s about  progress. And we all know that progress happens smoother or quicker when there is a plan.

We thought that the most important place to start making healthier choices was in the bathroom. We were going to start living a natural lifestyle by making our bathroom eco-friendly.

The first part of our natural family plan was to start making our own toothpaste. This would include searching the web for homemade recipes. Once we had the recipe, we got to work. We mixed bi-carbonato con aciete de coco y unas gotitas de menta. Voila, it was done. The first couple of days Gabriel and I felt so PROUD of our little expirement accomplishment. But as the weeks went by, we confessed to each other that we weren’t 100% satisfied with our homemade toothpaste, we were missing that “freshness.”  We would play around a little bit more with batches, but never really got one that we felt that minty crispiness.

So, one day we were wandering down the “Oral hygiene” aisle in Walmart looking for a natural toothpaste and saw Tom’s of Maine. We looked at each-other, read the box, looked at the price, and then smiled. And like they say, the rest is history. LOL.


After trying Tom’s of Maine for the first time, we were hooked to the natural toothpaste. Tom’s of Maine is a great introduction brand for families who want to make more natural choices because it is affordable and they also offer other natural products; be sure to check them out

We feel at ease knowing what ISN’T in our toothpaste, Tom’s of Maine  NEVER uses artificial colors, flavors, fragrances, preservatives or animal testing. We also appreciate that Tom’s of Maine carries products for babies/toddlers/children. We’ve also tried their Silly Strawberry, which taste delicious and doesn’t have any flouride. It’s silly enough for kids, and parent approved!


Our second step was to buy natural bath products. We bought natural/organic shampoo,  handmade soap from the farmer’s market, and started using organic shea butter as our moisturizer. We also stopped using aerosol products completely. I’ve actually made my own “hairspray” concoction, using water and citrus peels.

Beauty, I got rid of all my stuff and decided to start from zero. Buying just “my essentials,” mascara, lipstick, and eyebrow pencil. My organic beauty collection has grown over time to include other goodies like bronzer, eye-shadow, eye-liner. And I’ve even made my own coffee body-scrub, and now use coconut oil to remove makeup.

Did you know that baking soda  and vinegar aren’t only useful in the kitchen, cooking? They are great for cleaning your home naturally.

Have you heard of that famous saying… “If its yellow, let it mellow. If it’s brown, flush it down?” Hahaha, well we do that here in order to reduce our water consumption. Also, you know how sometimes you let the water warm up before you hop into the shower? Well, I like to pop a little bucket in there to catch the “warm up water” and re-use it later on in the day. Whether it be for brushing my teeth or washing my face.

We also like to buy soap that doesn’t come in a wrapper or box, so that way we reduce waste.

One of the last points on our plan was to recycle as much as possible, to try to re-use the empty boxes, or bottles. For example, the empty bottle of bodywash/shampoo, we put a little bit of rice in it to make it into a shaker for Luna.

And last, but not least on our list was to switch our light-bulbs. We wanted to start using LED lightbulbs to save energy. LEDs come to full brightness without need for a warm-up time, unlike fluorescent lamps.

You can also have an Eco-Friendly Bathroom in 10 Easy Steps:

  1. Buy (or make) toothpaste
  2. Buy (or make) natural bath products.
  3. Buy (or make) natural beauty products.
  4. Stop using hairspray/aerosol products.
  5. Use baking soda.
  6. Use vinegar.
  7. Reduce.
  8. Reuse. 
  9. Recycle.
  10. Light-bulbs.

I’d love to hear some of the ways you encourage your family to live a natural lifestyle!

As moms we learn how to juggle several tasks at a time, like cleaning the house while doing some cardio and talking on the phone. Or, one of my favourites, breastfeeding in the carrier while hanging clothes to dry!

5 Reasons why you’ll love MAM Anti-Collic Bottle (and Trainer)

We’ve all had to soothe a fussy newborn before, right? Trying just about anything to get the baby to calm down and relax. It can be pretty stressful for all parties involved, even for those who aren’t doing the soothing or fussing, LOL. Well, did you know that for the one in four babies that suffer from colic, having the right bottle can make all the difference.

The MAM Anti-Colic bottle helps reduce the stress associated with newborn feedings and decreases colic symptoms in babies by 80 percent. MAM’s Anti-Colic bottle’s innovative nipple designs helps make switching between MOM (breastfeeding) and MAM (bottle feeding) smoother.

I personally love this bottle because it is SO EASY to clean. You take it apart, wash it and can sterilize in the micorwave. I never had to worry about bacteria build up, phew. Below are 5 reasons why you have to try the MAM Anti-Collic Bottle:


Breast milk & Formula

It is suitable for both breast milk and formula.

Vented Base Eliminates Air Pockets

Patented ventilation holes in its base regulate the pressure balance of baby’s milk, allowing it to flow evenly without bubbles for reduced gas.  The design features an innovative silicone seal to prevent milk from leaking out during mealtime.

Silk Teat Nipple Reduces Nipple Confusion

MAM’s patented Silk Teat nipple is specially designed to feel instinctively familiar to baby for optimal comfort and reduced nipple confusion.  Suitable for both breast milk and formula, the nipples feature an ultra-soft, silky smooth silicone surface and orthodontic shape for easier feedings.  The nipples come in four sizes to meet baby’s feeding needs at every stage: 1 (slow flow), 2 (medium flow), 3 (fast flow) and X (extra fast).

Functional Design for Easier Filling and Cleaning

The bottle’s savvy design makes it a pleasure to use.  A wide mouth allows for easier filling and washing and an easy-to-read, oversized scale on the bottle’s side helps measure milk accurately. The cap also has a measure for formula.

Self-Sterilizing Design for Easy Cleaning

Yes, you read right! Self- Sterilizing! Como?

It’s actually very quick,  safely sterilize an empty MAM Anti-Collic Bottle in the microwave in a few simple steps. One of my favourite features because it is perfect for travel or on-the-go feedings, this feature helps eliminate any concern that baby’s bottle is unclean or contaminated.

After bottle feeding with MAM’s Anti-Colic bottle, baby remains calm and relaxed because they don’t swallow any air. Like all MAM products, the anti-colic bottles are BPA-free, phthalate-free, PVC-free, lead-free and CPSIA-compliant.  The bottles are microwave safe, dishwasher safe in the upper rack, and are completely shatter-proof.

MAM offers real solutions for real parenting with an award-winning range of smart and simple products. The MAM collection includes pacifiers, bottles, cups, teethers, and oral care items.

I really like the unique design elements MAM Anti-Colic bottles because it made newborn feeding a little less stressful.NEW MAM Logo


We are also fans of the MAM Trainer, which made the transition from breastfeeding to cup easy- thanks to the combination of the innovative spill-free  soft spout.  I really like that the Trainer has the “MAM valve concept.” This means that the Trainer can be switched from spill-free to “free-flow” by detaching the valve.

The Trainer comes with non-slip handles that are especially designed for small baby hands and provide a good hold. The non-slip handles can be used on all of the MAM Bottles and Trainer.

The MAM Anti-Colic Bottle and MAM Trainer are available at leading mass and online retailers nationwide, including Walmart, Buy Buy Baby,, and For more information, please visit

How to make combing your toddler’s hair hastle free,quickly and efficiently!

This is a compensated campaign in collaboration with Johnson’s® and Latina Bloggers Connect.

Put your hand up if you remember when your mom brushed your hair when you were a little girl? Uhm, I specifically remember how she used to tug through my knots. Oh, and how I would lean back so that it wouldn’t hurt as much when she was trying to detangle my hair. That would only make her brush harder or say “quedate quieta cipota.” Hahaha.

Back then there was only water to spray into those nuddos, and lets face it, that didn’t really make to much of a difference. If anything, I felt que te enredaba el pelo mas. Am I right? I used to dread the morning because I knew my mom was going to peinarme y jalarme el pelo para sacarme los nudos, para hacerme una peinado muy bonito (sea una cola o trenza). Sometime having a good hair came with a couple of “ouches” and “sit still!.” Not fun for both parties.

Bueno, now a days, ni se diga. Everyone and there momma has some sweet method to make brushing thru those tough knots a lot easier. Woo-hoo, thank goodness. Because my Little Moon has a TON of hair (thick), and girrrrl can it get knotty, especially after waking up. That bed head of hers, is a whole lotta knotty. And I can’t get myself to just comb thru it when it’s really knotty because I have flash backs from my childhood. Jajaja and I don’t want to put my Little Moon thru that…

Our Little Moon loves getting her hair brushed and I want to keep it that way. So a detangler is ALWAYS a good idea. It makes it super easy to get brush thru the knots and put her hair into either a cola de caballo, pig tails or braids. Yes, braids!


JOHNSON’S® NO MORE TANGLES® makes combing my baby girls hair a breeze. JOHNSON’S® NO MORE TANGLES® detangling spray goes to work instantly to unlock your baby’s knots and tangles in dry or wet hair for easy trouble-free combing. Good hair days should be fun for both parties involved.

NO MORE TANGLES® frees parents to have fun with their toddlers’ style & avoid getting tangled up in the knots of managing it. We love that you can make your baby’s haircare manageable and untangled during or after bathtime with JOHNSON’S® NO MORE TANGLES®detangling spray, which provides extra detangling for both wet and dry hair.

Oh, and get this, Gabriel even used this detangler when his hair was long too! He loved how quick and effective it was. So there you have it, JOHNSON’S® NO MORE TANGLES®  isn’t just for your kid(s), you can use it too! I love it when products can be used by all ages, get the bang for your buck, right?

Listed below is the JOHNSON’S® NO MORE TANGLES®collection:

  • JOHNSON’S® NO MORE TANGLES® Thin & Straight
  • JOHNSON’S® NO MORE TANGLES® Detangling Spray
  • JOHNSON’S® NO MORE TANGLES® Leave-in Conditioner
  • JOHNSON’S® NO MORE TANGLES® Thick and Curly

I’d love to hear about your hair brushing routine, do you use detangler on your child/yourself?

Quick oil change with Quaker State

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #CampaignHashtag #CollectiveBias

Although I have been multi-tasking for many years, it doesn’t necessarily mean I was any good at it. That is up until a year ago, when my Little Moon was born. Now, I’m pretty sure I’m a multi-tasking pro. I can do laundry, dishes and cook all at the same time.

There really isn’t a moment when I can focus on just one thing anymore, not even blogging. As I’m sitting here typing away, Little Moon is having some ChiChi.
Being a mom, you learn how to multi-task very well. You don’t go grocery shopping for just one thing, if you’re going to make a run to the store, you take advantage and get everything you need (and more). Those one stop shops/super centers are the bomb. You know what I’m talking about, right?
Like Walmart, for example, where you can get your car fixed while shopping. Uh-huh! Just the other day, while our car was getting it’s oil changed at the Walmart Auto Care Center (ACC), we were inside the Walmart Super Center grocery shopping and picking up a prescription. We were also able to pick up a bottle of Quaker State oil for our car’s oil change. The Quaker State oil was very easy to find, as it was in the Automotive and Specialty Oils aisle in the Automotive department, right beside/next door to the shop. Talk about convenient!
The mechanic informed me that Quaker State oil was a great choice because it is top quality for a low price. I like to ask questions, especially when something so important to me, like my car is involved, and the Walmart ACC team answered them efficiently, with confidence. The Walmart ACC team was approachable, knowledgeable, experienced and very friendly. Which made me feel confident that I left my car in reliable hands at the Walmart ACC.
Our car is important to us because it allows us to get from point a to b on daily family adventures. We have only had our car for about 2 years, and before we were very dependent on transit, which we all know can be a pain in the butt sometimes, especially if the weather is cray. I remember a couple times where I was late for work, due to snow because we all know that some bus routes and snow don’t mix.
Having a car has given us more freedom, taking our car on family adventures like camping in the mountains, going on road trips to other states and much more. We have been able to explore our surroundings more since having our car, and we can show our daughter more of this beautiful world.
Buying and owning a car is an investment. So we do everything in our power to keep it as “Good As New.” Below are our top 10 tips preventative measures and maintenance so your car never lets you and your family down.
  1. Regular oil/filter change
  2. Wash/detail car regularly
  3. Get wheels aligned
  4. Check battery
  5. Brakes serviced regularly
  6. Clean the interior regularly
  7. Wipe windshield wipers down/or replace if worn out
  8. Change tires
  9. Store in garage
  10. Replace burned out bulbs
Overall, we were really impressed with the ease and convenience of having our cars oil changed with Quaker State at the Walmart ACC. Which has me wondering….when was the last time you got your oil changed? I would also love to hear if you have any tips to add to my list for maintaining your car as “Good As New.”

Zorah Pure Argan Beauty Review

Zorah biocosmétiques  is a line of high quality cosmetic-care products designed, produced and distributed in Canada. Zorah products are made with organic, eco-friendly and fair-trade ingredients. Their products do not contain any animal products or mineral oils (ex.: petroleum) and are not tested on animals, YAY!

I absolutely adore the Zorah Pure Argan makeup products. I had the pleasure of trying out the Pure Argan BBB Cream in Pinky Beige, the Length & Care Mascara, Liquid Eyeliner, Lip Gloss in Léa and Ombré Eyeshadow. The main natural ingredient in all of these products, Argan oil, protects the skin, restores its’ natural barrier and neutralizes free radicals – making it the perfect ingredient for makeup!SONY DSC

SONY DSC My favourite product from the bunch is the BBB Cream in Pinky Beige. Slightly pigmented, the cream works to reduce redness (Because of its Argan oil base, wich is a powerful antioxidant), tighten pores and smooth the skin while protecting it from free radicals. It gives my skin a healthy glow and is great to use in lieu of liquid foundation for a more natural look.Zorah Makeup Review - 3

Zorah Makeup Review - 2The eyeshadow in Ombré is awesome. It’s beautiful, smoky colour goes on smooth – lasting all day and it also has some serious skin care benefits. The eyeshadow is a great alternative to most, as the Argan Oil works to support anti-aging, which most people tend to notice the most around the eyes!

Zorah Makeup Review - 1The mascara is great because, unlike most mascaras that tend to damage the lashes, the Argan oil works to promote growth. So it’s a win/win! Not only will your lashes look great, they will benefit from wearing this mascara. What could be better!

Zorah Makeup Review - 4The liquid eyeliner also has similar benefits and is long lasting. It’s very light weight and easy on the eyelids, which can be very sensitive.

Zorah Makeup Review - 5As for the lip gloss, it helped my lips feel smooth and silky. I’m not usually a big fan of gloss (I usually go for matte lip sticks, which I would love to see in this line!) but as far as lip gloss goes – this one was great. It helped my lips stay moisturized in the summer heat while adding a pop of colour.

I usually feel a bit guilty wearing makeup – because I know that it can have some damaging effects on the skin (in comparison to going eau naturalé, with no makeup!), but this makeup line takes all that guilt away.I just love how these products work to support healthy skin. I can look my best and feel my best about it, guilt free!

Zorah Makeup Review - 6Did I mention that Zorah is fully committed to improving the environment in every step of its production and distribution processes? Zorah’s containers are 100% recyclable, their brochures are printed with vegetable-based inks on 100% recycled paper and their products are manufactured locally so as to reduce unnecessary transport. Each step in the preparation of Zorah’s products is another step towards sustainable development.

In Vancouver, you can find Zorah, pure argan beauty products at Choices Markets!

Other Uses for Huggies® Wipes, that aren’t on baby! “Because Kids Outgrow Diapers, Not Messes”

I never really understood why some of my girlfriends who didn’t have babies/kids had wipes in their house, or even in their bags. I guess I didn’t pay enough attention to what they were using them for then, “to each it’s own” I must’ve thought! Anyways, now that I think about those friends, and now that I use wipes, it’s CLICKED. I totally understand why people who have no kids or kids in diapers use wipes! Because there are about a billion and one uses for wet wipes. It doesn’t matter how old you are because Huggies® Wipes are a great way to clean up any family’s mess, not just babys!

We highly recommend you store a pack of wipes in your car, like us! It’ll save you some time, and keep your car (and many other things,  kids and pets clean too. We like to keep a pack of wipes in the glove compartment and one in the back seat pocket, near LittleMoon. The Clutch ‘n’ Clean is great because it is re-usable, you can refill with as many time as needed. and is slim enough to fit into small spaces. I often find that we use them in the car after we are done eating a “drive-thru” meal or giving LittleMoon a snack, to wipe our hands and mouth. Also, to wipe down any drinks or sauces that have been spilled. I specifically remember using them after a hike in the Valley, we had to wipe our shoes down since they were pretty filthy.


We also keep some wipes in the kitchen, stroller caddy,gym bag, and diaper bag, for obvious reasons. :P

Below are some of the many ways you can put these handy wipes to good use:

  • Removing make-up.
