Brush Naked Review

We are Head over Heels For BRUSH NAKED!!!

A better choice for you and for the earth.

FREE Shipping to US and Canada
Our toothbrushes are 100% bamboo - not just the handle but the bristles are wood fibres too. Not all toothbrushes are created to be earth-friendly. Most are plastic which takes 10,000 years to decompose. Millions of plastic toothbrushes end up in landfills every year.

The difference is in the details

Even so-called “eco friendly” toothbrushes often use nylon bristles which have to be plucked out before disposal. brush*naked is different. We’ve gone back to our roots. Everything is created by nature, from the packaging to the product itself. We just assemble. Switching to brush*naked is such a small choice, but considering you’ll use 300 toothbrushes over your life time, you’ll feel good knowing that your environmental footprint for cleaning your teeth is nearly zero.


About Brush Naked,

"The idea for the Brush Naked Bamboo Toothbrush Company was born in a hotel room. I had finished brushing my teeth and looked at my toothbrush. It had seen better days so I threw it in the garbage can. As it hit the bottom of the can I thought to myself, "What a waste! There has to be a better way to prevent hundreds of millions of non-recyclable plastic toothbrushes ending up in landfills every year." I did some research online and found the options for environmentally friendly toothbrushes to be extremely limited. The Brush Naked Bamboo Toothbrush Company was born."
 You can purchases brush-naked toothbrushes of adults and kids! Sophia is currently obsessed with brushing her teeth. She is also leaning her colors so the handles always make a fun teachable moment in the morning and at night!!
Well we are SOLD!!!! We are completely in LOVE with our Brush Naked toothbrushes and we will never go back to plastic! The quality of these toothbrushes is like no other! They really are one of a kind!! You really have to try these brushes out for yourself!!!  And I can't lie it feels REALLY good knowing every time I put that toothbrush in my mouth I am doing my part to help the environment! I want to leave my daughter with a better earth then it is now...That will only happen if we all take a stand and do our part! It is so worth it!

Don't forget to check them out on Facebook HERE You can Purchase Your Toothbrushes over at Brush Naked HERE

I received these products free for review purposes but all opinions are 100% honest.

Bowie X James

BOWIE X JAMES

Sophia & I are totally LOVING the amazing swim line by BOWIE X JAMES!!!!!

I was so excited to review for this super rad company! Sophia received the Silver Lining Bikini and we seriously cant get enough! The quality is amazing...not to mention I'm a sucker for packaging and it came in the most adorable leopard tissued hand stamped brown bag!
 
Description- Silver Lining Bikini $68.00
* Printed adjustable triangle top and reversible tie side bikini bottom
* Wild leopard print is sweetened with bright floral pops of color
* Tie side bottoms reverse from print to solid black
* Shell: 82% Poly 18% Spandex
* Lining: 100% Poly
 
  A little background from the peeps over at Bowie X James, "BOWIE X JAMES was started by three moms who wanted to create and design swimwear that reflected their daughter's unique, stylish and caring personalities. We are all native Southern Californians with strong roots in the beach lifestyle and wanted our babes to be outfitted as we would outfit ourselves. BOWIE X JAMES bikinis are meant to be mixed but not to match, and many of our styles have reversible bottoms for maximum usage. Our designs are comfy, clean and modern and the tie side bikini bottoms facilitate a spot on fit. Each season our designs are influenced by nature and the world around us. In turn we donate a portion of our proceeds to a selected charity.  We want to educate our daughters on the importance of giving back and inspire them to make a difference in the world...all while looking adorable. BOWIE X JAMES is located in Encinitas, California and is designed for little babes, ages 2 - 12. We hope you love the collection and stay tuned for upcoming categories of beachwear."


Seriously LOVE that this line was started by three mommas You Gals ROCK!!!!! I seriously have been stumped when it came to Sophia's bathsuit this year! I have been in and out of every store from Gap, Janie & Jack even Target! When I tell you I have searched high and low and came up empty handed, I really came up empty handed! Well besides the cart full of non essentials that I always seem to leave Target with! I'm So Excited for Sophia's new Bathing Suit from Bowie X James, not only is the print adorable but it is also reversible. Sophia will most definitely be rocking the all black too, of course dressed up with her Bowie X James shades and a rocking head wrap!

Sophia & I will be hitting up the beach in the coming weeks....when this New England weather heats up! Check back for Beach Pictures and Hashtag your babes wearing #BOWIEJAMES

Beauteque Review

I have just discovered the Beauteque BB Bag , the most amazing pampering monthly subscription.

What is the Beauteque Monthly?
Beauteque Monthly is an amazing beauty subscription created in the United Stated but is from a Korean beauty website, Beauteque. Each month, subscribers receive BB Bags (Beauteque Beauty Bags) jam packed with Korean beauty products! Everything you could imagine comes stuffed in this beauty product bag! The fun part...You get a new fun bag every month!

Want the Details

Surprise My Pet

 Surprise My Pet Subscription Box has made its way to the Vacca Household this Easter!!!


Ever since Sophia came into the picture our home has become the best kind of crazy!!! We Love our newest human addition but have noticed that most of our time is directed towards the new baby! We tend to get lost in our new "normal" but never want to forget about our first two FUR Babies! They still go for their walks and play with their toys but their time spent with us solely has taken a back burner. Yes this makes us sad and totally wish there was more hours in a day but the truth is there isn't! That is why we couldn't be more excited to review for Surprise My Pet! Our furbabies were absolutely ecstatic to receive their first box!!!I have to tell you...life with a new baby is BUSY.... Having to run to the pet store for a new toy, treat or bone doesn't run high up on our list (though it should!) This takes the worry out of our hands. Surprise My Pet deliveres your pets goods right to your doorstep!!! This Makes EVERYONE Happy especially our four legged friends!
surprise-my-pet-packageSurprise My Pet currently offers boxes for dogs, and it also plans to offer boxes for cats and other pets in the near future.
