Some More Baby Proofing In My House #childsafety

Layla, the wild one, aka, my toddler is such a curious little gal, like most kids her age. Of course, we have a billion drawers, doors, and cabinets in my house, so baby-proofing is a must. We started months ago, but as she gets older, I find myself baby proofing more and more areas of the house.
I have a number of different types of baby locks around the house. Unfortunately, not all of the doors and doors can use the same kind of locks, so these came in handy with my more awkward doors.
Here's what the ones I'm using in my bedroom look like:

I like several things about these.
-They are very flexible and can be adjusted to the type of drawer/door you are using them on.
-They are easy to assemble
-They come with 4 extra sticky pads in case you need to readjust or remove and stick elsewhere
-The sticky pads hold them in place, even with my heavier doors
-They are combination locks, with three tiny lines that you have to align in order to unlock the locks
-To lock them, simply twist until the little lines are out of order
-They are brown so they match a lot of furniture
-Comes with 6 in a box
-My toddler cannot open them

The only thing I see that could possibly be a problem, is if someone were to pull it too hard and the plastic strap would bust. I have not had this happen to me and hopefully it won't.

Overall, I like them better than some of my others and would consider buying more if needed.

You can find them on Amazon

March BookCase From Bookcase.club #bccunboxing

These last couple of months have been filled with so many great books from this subscription service. I'm usually a really fast reader, but have been struggling a bit to finish all my new books. Not that there's any rush to do so, I just really love to read as many books as I can.

I was very happy to see what came in my latest box.
What came inside?

The Beautiful and the Cursed by Page Morgan
After a bizarre accident, Ingrid Waverly is forced to leave London with her mother and younger sister, Gabby, trading a world full of fancy dresses and society events for the unfamiliar city of Paris.

In Paris there are no grand balls or glittering parties, and, disturbingly, the house Ingrid’s twin brother, Grayson, found for them isn’t a house at all. It’s an abandoned abbey, its roof lined with stone gargoyles that could almost be mistaken for living, breathing creatures.

And Grayson has gone missing.

No one seems to know of his whereabouts but Luc, a devastatingly handsome servant at their new home.

Ingrid is sure her twin isn’t dead—she can feel it deep in her soul—but she knows he’s in grave danger. It will be up to her and Gabby to navigate the twisted path to Grayson, a path that will lead Ingrid on a discovery of dark secrets and otherworldly truths. And she’ll learn that once they are uncovered, they can never again be buried.


The Exile by C.T. Adams
Brianna Hai runs an occult shop that sells useless trinkets to tourists—and real magic supplies to witches and warlocks. The magical painting that hangs in Brianna's apartment is the last portal between the fae and human worlds.

A shocking magical assault on her home reveals to Brianna that her father, High King Liu of the Fae, is under attack. With the help of her gargoyle, Pug, her friend David, and Angelo, a police detective who doesn't believe in magic, Brianna recovers what was stolen from her and becomes an unwilling potential heir to the throne.

A suspenseful urban fantasy with a hint of romance, The Exile is the first solo novel by C. T. Adams, who is half of USA Today bestselling author Cat Adams. Like the Cat Adams Blood Singer novels, The Exile is set in a world where magic is real and contains Adams's trademark blend of suspense, action, humor, and strongly emotional writing.

Those books sound pretty good, don't they?

The Comfort Of The Living Room

One of the easiest rooms in the home to change is the living room. The shape of the room often makes it a blank slate when it comes to the furniture added, the paint, flooring and other notes that make the room unique. Before you begin your remodeling project, you need to look for a home renovation contractor who can go over the details with you about what needs to be done to ensure that the electrical issues are safe and any flooring or walls are safe if you don't know about construction projects. The contractor can also give you ideas about what to do in the room to transform it into a space that is comfortable for the family to enjoy.

An open floor plan is one that offers the most flexibility when decorating. However, it can seem a bit too open unless you use the right furniture. Couches that sit lower to the floor and rugs will make the room appear full while providing a cozy atmosphere. You can designate individual spaces in the room by blocking off an area for watching television or one for reading.

Take a break from the traditional beige and neutral colors that are seen on the walls. Darker colors, like navy blue or dark gray, allow you to use furniture that is lighter in color, bringing a brightness to the living room that is cheerful and welcoming. Hardwood floors are also an option that will expand the room. The hardwood floors are also easier to keep clean. Also, think about the type of furniture that you have in the room. If you plan on being in the living room for long periods of the day, then you might want to look at plush couches and chairs instead of those that have stiff cushions.

However, if you use the plush furnishings, you don't want to add pillows as they will tend to look washed out. Instead, consider a throw on the back of the furniture. A wooden coffee table often looks best with the plush furniture while one that is made of a softer material works well with cushions that are stiffer.

#ActivaNaturalsGreensSuperfood Review

I eat about 90% raw vegan. I exercise, I meditate, I try to take care of myself. I am also very open to trying out new ways to add in even more healthy products and habits. 
I was sent a product to add into my daily routine and I'm liking it.
It is called Activa Greens Superfood Powder. 

Product Details
Raw and organic
Wheat Grass
Natural Berry Flavor 

It's a superfood blend with ingredients like spirulina, chlorella, maca, goji berries, probiotics. All the good stuff!!
I's #vegan and gluten-free too, which makes me love this product even more. 
You can mix a scoop into water, juice, shakes, smoothies.

I really like it in cold banana spinach smoothies, but I drink it with pretty much any plant milk that I have in the fridge. Tastes pretty darn good.

They also have a really good selection of other products.

#Sterline Electric Toothbrush

Both my husband and I have always been really good about our oral hygiene. We think it's really important to take care of your teeth. Your whole body and overall health can be affected by your oral health.
He actually bought us a really expensive brand name electric toothbrush a few months ago and we were using that one everyday. I thought it might be a good idea to try out a different brand, just to see if we might like it. 
Well, I ordered this one for us as a Christmas gift.
It is from Sterline and it has some really neat features.

One of the coolest things about this product is that it has a UV sanitation chamber attached to the base!  Our other one does have this feature. I LOVE that it has this.
You can simply remove the head to your toothbrush, stick it in the chamber, it will light up and clean your brush. Then your brush will be clean and ready for the next use. 
I think that this is really great because your toothbrush can harbor all kinds of germs, especially if you get sick or if there are airborne germs in the bathroom (yuck).

It does come with multiple heads, which is another great thing. I believe one is soft, one is medium, and one is for cleaning especially between your teeth (as shown in pic above).
Again, our other brush does not offer this.

There are also 3 different brushing modes. There is normal. soft, and pulse. This thing gets so powerful and really does a nice and thorough job cleaning your teeth and gums. I'm very happy with it. Also, it has a timer and buzzes in thirty second intervals and then shuts off after two minutes. 
Another good feature, of course. 

When you first open it, the actual brush and brush heads come in sealed plastic baggies to ensure that you are getting a sanitary product. I like that.

Neat product.  You can purchase this product here.

#BookCaseClub An Awesome Subscription Service for Avid Book Readers Like Myself

There seems to be a subscription service for just about everything these days, right? I mean, you hear about beauty, clothes, razors, food, toys, and I even saw a PMS box! Well, a friend of mine mentioned one for people, like myself, who loves books.
It is called Bookcase.club.

They have a genre for just about everyone. There is a bookcase for kids, Strange Worlds Case, Teenage Dreams Case, Blind Date Case, Booking for Love Case, Thrill Seeker Case, Cookbooks Case, and Military History Case.

You will receive handpicked books every month, based off of what you like, for the low fee of $9.99, plus $5 shipping. They have month to month subscriptions, 3, 6, and 12 month plans too.

This is the first bookcase box that I received.  It is from the Read To Me Kids Case.

These are the books that came inside. Both of my kids, one who is 8, and the other who is about to turn 2, love books. They were excited that we now have even more books to add to our collection. 

Such a cute collection of books handpicked for them! 
What I love most about this sub service is the fact that I may have never known about the books if they hadn't been sent to me. I think it's nice to be surprised like that every month. 
I highly recommend this service if you like that sort of thing too.
