Bamboo sheets are super soft and durable and just may become your new favorite bedding material. I’ve been using bamboo pillow cases from this company and I’m in love with how soft they are. The bamboo sheets from Bamboo Sheets Shop are made of 100% rayon bamboo fibers that are spun into a soft yard and then woven into a silky woven cloth. Rayon Bamboo fibers are made up of natural fibers that guarantee a silky-soft good nights sleep.

My daughter is loving her two new dresses from Decal Plush. She loves the airplane dress because we travel on airplanes a lot and can’t wait to wear it on our next trip in June. She loves the elephant dress because it has a pocket. She’s obsessed with clothes with pockets right now because she loves to put her “things” in them. What I love is that I can have peace of mind knowing that my daughter is wearing soft, eco-friendly outfits that won’t irritate her skin.

Your skin absorbs everything that it comes in contact with including your sunscreens and lotions. One company is changing the way the beauty industry is making sunscreen by creating safe 100% natural and chemical free line that is made in the USA with USDA Organic ingredients: Nature’s Brands, Herbal Choice Mari, contains only pure natural earth and plant based ingredients, paraben/detergent/preservative free, Cruelty/gluten-free, vegan, vegetarian, and finally synthetic/fragrance free. Herbal Choice Mari is changing the landscape of the skincare industry by designing SPF, tinted SPF lotions and body butter products for purists and those who want to look great and make a smart decision about their beauty choices.
These products, especially the tinted SPF lotions are travel essentials. I hate wearing layers of makeup while sitting on the beach but I like to have a little bit of coverage. The product goes on a little greasy at first and dries to a nice, moisturizing finish. The light coverage is perfect for summer skin and is great layered under powder and blush.
|Paula’s Choice’s Earth Sourced CollectionSoothe your sensitive skin and fight signs of aging with products made from 98% natural ingredients. Not only are these products great for moms, but they are gentle enough for baby’s skin, too.
