  • Oh Hello, Cup

    Today, I want to specifically talk about the Hello Cup. The Hello Cup has several features that I love and make it stand apart from other cups.

    1. A Round Toggle

    In previous cups I've used the stick was pretty useless. The stick is not used for removal because the seal needs to be broken first and there will be a mess if you remove a cup just willy-nilly with a flimsy stick. A few friends have even said that the typical sticks can be uncomfortable and stab them. The Hello Cup's round toggle creates a more stable type of handle or grip for adjusting the cup after insertion. The design also works well to hold while breaking the seal for removal and the round shape eliminates the stabbing. 

  • Why I Choose A Menstrual Cup

    This past winter my family was going on a beautiful beach vacation. I had been planning this trip for years after it got postponed the first time when I found out I was pregnant with our son. I had a full itinerary planned and most of it involved being in my swim suit... It was going to be a dream! And then I looked at my calendar and realized that my period was due the second day of vacation. 

    After brief disappointment I became thankful that I switched to using a cup. Eliminating tampons and pads made the beach, pool, and adventures so much easier. 

  • Why I Choose Chemical Free

    The choice to move my family toward chemical free was not sudden or overnight. It has been a gradual and ongoing shift. I am not a doctor or scientist, but I wanted to share what things influenced my decision and practical ways to implement no tox items.
  • Recess Fit Kit Review

    Yesterday was a crazy day. Well, most days have been crazy lately with a toddler who is always busy and wanting to be out exploring in the warm weather. My husband was working late and we had a drive-by social distancing birthday party to go to as soon as he got home. I felt gross not having time for a shower (it had only been about a day since my last one, but I had spent most of the 80 degree day outside). The Recess Fit Kit saved me and had me feeling fresh enough to go out and about.

  • Quarantined With Kids

    This mama is tired. I bet you are too. This blog will hopefully give you some ideas and some peace of mind. But most of all, I hope it reminds us to be gracious with ourselves. We are all just trying to get through this season while shielding our kids from the heaviness of it.
  • Nikki's Winter Round Up

  • Natural Shampoo Bars

    There has been a lot of talk around PanBam about shampoo bars lately. It's made me curious and I guess you could say I'm on a hair journey now. There are so many benefits to using natural shampoo bars; they eliminate the need for single use plastic bottles, they don't include harmful chemicals that damage your hair in the long run, and they often keep hair looking fresh for longer than commercialized bottled shampoos.
  • Liquid-Free Toiletry Bag

    I've always dreaded packing for a flight, especially when it came to packing my toiletries. Consequently, that also makes me a last minute packer and I've made many last minute trips to the store to buy a smaller tube of toothpaste and 4oz bottles to transfer my shampoo and conditioner into. It's stressful to be expected to fit everything into a quart-sized bag when all my liquids were packaged in bulky bottles.

  • Baby Steps

    I think that New Year's resolutions should be marked and celebrated the same way. Resolving to "go green," can feel like an unachievable marathon. Perhaps instead of focusing on a daunting finish line decide to take some baby steps throughout the year.
