New Year, New You: Going Organic for Health and Beauty 0 15

As the new year unfolds, many people are reflecting on their health, wellbeing, and lifestyle and thinking about making some changes. New year, new start. If you’re aiming to make some positive changes for yourself and your family, then considering an organic lifestyle could be for you. The wide ranging benefits for you, your family, and the environment mean you should definitely think about making the change.

What’s for dinner?

If you’ve thought about ‘organic’ before, it’s probably to do with organic food – a relatively common sight now in supermarkets alongside regular options. But just what is the difference? Exactly what constitutes “organic” differs slightly from country to country, but broadly it refers to the way agricultural products are grown and processed: without the use of non-natural fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides, and genetically-modified crops (GMOs). Organic meat, fish, and dairy must have been raised outdoors and given organic feed, and not be given certain medicines or hormones. This all means that the food on your table – and in your body – contains less chemicals. It’s also often fresher food, as it doesn’t contain the preservatives of non-organic food. Organic farming is also better for the animals and the wider environment, and organic food has been found to have higher nutrient contents.

Putting your face on

Even if you’re already buying organic food, what about other areas of your life? An organic lifestyle also includes other items around the house and in our daily lives. Opting for organic makeup and other body care products is also important, because these items can contain many nasty chemicals too, such as parabens, silicones, sulfates, and GMOs. Choosing cosmetic products with natural and organic ingredients means you can control what is absorbed into your body and benefit from the natural botanical goodness of nature. Another plus is that many organic and natural beauty companies are also good at responsible sourcing of ingredients and ethical manufacturing processes, rather than being part of big multinational conglomerates.

Decorating and Personalizing with Sticker Kid 0 14

I had thought that I would start this article off with a walk down memory lane – and remind you of how neat it was to be a kid and have something with your name on it. Do you remember buying pencils or keychains with your name? As a kid, I loved that.

But I’ll be honest – as an adult – I still love it. I’m putting my name, our last name or initials all over the place! So in reality, who doesn’t love it at any age?

It’s still fun to find items in a store that has my name or my children’s name on it – but I think it’s even more fun and quite useful to put our name on whatever I want!

Sticker Kid sent over the cutest labels – and I got to do just that. They have so many sticker shapes, sizes, uses — they even have posters!

I spent the weekend labeling-up the kid’s stuff and a few things of my own.

You know what I love the most about Sticker Kid labels – other than the fun, personalization factor? The fact that it helps the kiddos (and me) keep track of their items. There used to be a time when I knew exactly which pencil and eraser belonged to my child. I also knew exactly how many items I sent with them out of the house. But, my brain is a little more frazzled and I need a little help remembering what I’ve purchased and sent with them. So, Sticker Kid can help me keep all of that in order.

Is that the backpack I bought for you, Joey? Yep! It has your name tag on it. Savannah, did I really buy you that water bottle? Yep! It has our name label on it.

Please tell me that I’m not the only one with a perpetual case of “mom brain”?
I had been worried that the labels and tags would be easily removable to the point where they could just fall off and be lost. But they are securely on each item.

You may be tempted to solely use the labels on the typical items such as school supplies, and shoes. But I think they’re going to work very well when the kids head to camp and go on day-adventures.

I plan to label items such as hair dryers, safety kids, flashlights, combs, leave-in conditioners, sunblock, pool toys, bite cream, and the list goes on. What else would you label?

I was excited to see their collection of kitchen labels and home decor items. Having just revamped one of my brands, I wanted to pay homage to it. These kitchen labels were the perfect item to keep it close.

I plan to use these to organize not only spices, but my espresso, flours, sugars, and oats.

So, the poster is probably my most favorite item of all. Because I love putting our names everywhere! Right now, I’m attaching it to this old calendar board I thrifted last year.

I painted the frame white, added wood to the inner portion and covered it with chalk paint. This will hang in our kitchen – but I may rotate the poster throughout the house.

I’d love to hear what your ideas on labeling are! What should I label next? Which item are you going to order or which one should I order next?
