Back to School Savings: Hair Products, Accessories, Clothes and More

I mentioned on our Facebook page that D is starting school next week… NEXT WEEK… it snuck up on me. How could it be time already?! I remember at the end of this past school year everyone being so surprised that we was out of school so early, well this is why, she starts back so early! I wanted to share some ongoing discounts and specials for the back to school savings, mainly for clothes, accessories and hair products! Got to have our babies looking right without breaking the bank.Clothing and Accessories
I’ve been doing some online school clothes shopping, my favorite site to get cute clothes at discounted prices is Zulily, I’ve shared this on Facebook before, but wanted to post about it here, too. I know that back to school shopping can get expensive especially with multiple children, so I wanted to share and hopefully help my readers save some money! The best part about Zulily, aside from their adorable clothes and accessories at affordable prices, is that you can invite friends to join and when they make their first purchase you are credited with $20 to use on your next purchase on Zulily. I want to invite you all sign up, save money and earn credits!

Earth Mama Angel Baby Foam Soap Review

earth mama baby angel
I am one of those mom’s who is OCD about germs. I am constantly making D wash her hands to prevent illness, I know she gets tired of always having to wash her hands, but I can’t help it, I hate it when she is sick and it would be horrible if she got Baby Boy sick.
, which compares the two and provides a break down of the different ingredients and their health safety concerns.
“All of Earth Mama Angel Baby® products are made with only pure, natural worry-free ingredients. And every Earth Mama Angel Baby product rates a zero for toxins on the respected Skin Deep database; the best rating a product can receive.”
We received the following four products in trial sizes to try out:
small-foaming-soaps earth mama angel baby
  • Naturally calming Lavender Vanilla Calm & Clean Hand to Toe Wash
  • Truly unscented Natural Non-Scents Hand to Toe Wash
  • Exhilarating, queasy-busting Ginger Lime Happy Mama Hand to Toe Wash
  • Gentle Vanilla Sweet orange Angel Baby Shampoo & Body Wash

I am absolutely loving the castile soaps with the foaming pump, they have become my favorite type of soap, they are easily dispensed and the small travel sizes make them perfect for a pack back, purse, or of course for vacationing. D carries her Calm and Clean Earth Mama Angel Baby soap with her, to have a natural way to kill germs and prevent her from getting sick. I have got to tell you about the scents of these 4 items…they are nothing short of amazing…for real… I love the Ginger Lime and the Vanilla Sweet Orange the best…they smell so good! The Lavender Vanilla is really nice too and the unscented…well it doesn’t have a scent!

Quick, Easy, Cute Back to School Hairstyle: August Hair Carnival

easy hairstyle idea

This month a group of hair bloggers and I want to provide our readers with some quick, easy and always adorable hairstyles for school! My style was actually inspired by Facebook photo from one of these bloggers, Keyative Styles.

I did this style the evening before D’s first day of school, after her hair had been washed, thoroughly detangled and moisturized. I used Bee Mine Botanical Moisturizing Shampoo, Bee Mine Avocado Cream Conditioner, and Bee Mine Luscious Moisturizer, I added some Bee Mine Curly Butter and began styling.
-You can see how I simply parted straight across her head starting in front of her ears, put the hair into a ponytail and braided it.
-From there I parted down the middle of her head:
-I then parted diagonally from the center to create 4 triangles and braided each one:
kids hairstyle
biracial hairstyles
easy back to school style

This quick and easy style held up for 2 days.The second day I simply sprayed her hair with our Bee Mine Juicy Spritz and changed out her accessories:
