All Natural, Sunny Days Mineral Sunscreen by Ma Mi Skin Care – Review & Giveaway {$22 value}

Summer is here!! Can you believe it? Finally! time to pack up the kids, head to the park, the splash pad, the cottage, the lake, the pool…okay, okay, you get the point. It’s finally hot outside and that means we can enjoy the great outdoors like there’s no tomorrow! The only problem is that we need to be protected – from what you ask? Well, from the sun, of course!

With all the trillion sunscreens out there, how do we know what works? And more importantly, which ones are safe?! Well luckily there are very safe sunscreens on the market – the trick is just finding them :) Personally, I have had such amazing luck when it comes to finding awesome natural sunscreens. Most recently, I even had the opportunity to test out Sunny Days Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30 by Ma Mi Skin Care. I would like to tell you my thoughts on the product – and even offer a GIVEAWAY! Keep on reading… ;)

Before I start, I just want to say that we know that the sun’s rays are strongest between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m, making it even more important to slather on the sunscreen during those time periods. Of course, we have all heard by now that it is perfectly healthy to get about 15 minutes of sun exposure per day (sans sunscreen) but that’s about all. So make sure that you always have sunscreen on hand! I love that I can apply Ma Mi’s mineral sunscreen anytime, anywhere because the handy tube fits perfectly in my purse and diaper bag. I am a huge believer in wearing sunscreen (especially on our faces) so I don’t like being unprepared!

Ma Mi’s Sunny Days Mineral Sunscreen is awesome! With all natural ingredients and no fillers, this is a high-quality and trusted sunscreen that I absolutely recommend for faces! And it lasts such a long time because just a tiny dab goes a very long way, which is awesome because I’m outside with the three little munchkins A LOT and always wear sunscreen on my face! :)

Okay, let’s talk more about the specifics now. Having a light, airy scent, it goes on a pale pink colour and rubs in completely clear, which I’m thrilled about! There’s nothing less attractive than huge white sunscreen streaks all over our faces! :p I am also a huge fan of the fact that it blocks BOTH UV-A and UV-B rays and does not contain Benzophenone, making it safe to use during pregnancy and while breastfeeding. Check your current sunscreens because they are definitely not all created equal – Ma Mi is one step ahead, and that’s just the tip of the iceberg! Check it out…

Benefits of Ma Mi’s Sunny Days Mineral Sunscreen:

  • Anti-UV-A, UV-B and Infrared
  • Anti-MMP (sun-induced collagen damage)

NEW All Access Organizers from Rubbermaid {Review & Giveaway – $70 Value}

As most of you know, I have a huge love for homeschooling. Making the choice to send our 4 year old to half day kindergarten this past year was a tricky (okay, heartbreaking) decision for the hubster and I, but we did it based on the social/emotional development that school was able to expose him to. Truthfully, if I hadn’t been pregnant with our 3rd baby, I probably wouldn’t have even enrolled him … but nonetheless it made the most sense at the time.

 All Access Organizers

Since my high-risk pregnancy was also coupled with moving into our new home, all of my homeschool resources were thrown placed gently into moving bins – and for the most part, everything has stayed that way…until now. For anyone keeping notes, it’s been 1 year since we moved, yikes! However, with summer break here, homeschooling is back on again. The only problem is that our homeschool room has now been turned into a beautiful nursery. So the kitchen will just have to do – although the Hubster doesn’t want everything thrown on the counter. So I needed a better storage solution. Luckily I found exactly what I need – Rubbermaid® All Access™ Organizers!

All Access Organizers

We all know that traditional bins are great for storing unused/seasonal items, but I need something better for my homeschool items. I need to be able to see into them quickly and actually access what I’m searching for in a second. For those reasons alone, the Rubbermaid All Access organizers are perfect for my family, because they have a clear, drop down door which allows us to retrieve exactly what we want, when we want it – without needing to dig down below to find what I’m looking for! Finally, I can grab what I need – anytime I need it, even when they are stacked on top one another! Now that’s pretty awesome, right?! I sure think so! No more procrastinating to get the things I need just because I don’t want to throw out my back unstacking heavy containers!

All Access Organizers

I’m sure you can imagine all the wonderful uses for these containers, other than homeschooling items. For instance – they would make an excellent storage area in the garage for balls, skipping ropes, sidewalk chalk and toys. Or even better – set them up under a desk for a convenient organizer of all your papers, CDs and even stationary needs! The possibilities really are endless, but I have to say the most unique idea I recently came across was to use it as a gecko home, with a little bit of modification of course! ;)

All Access Organizers

While I am using 2 medium organizers for my day-to-day homeschool supplies, I am also using 2 more for my craft supplies! I just need to print off some pretty pages to place in the front windows of each bin. I’m definitely thinking some scrapbook paper and my label maker are going to be put to use ;) Don’t you just love getting more organized?! I am SO excited about these!! 

The Nitty-Gritty!

  • The Rubbermaid 12-Gallon (56-Quart) All Access Organizers are Great for organizing garages, closets, children’s toys, craft rooms, offices, dorm rooms and more
  • Accessible storage
  • Ability to retrieve contents without unstacking

  • Large – 22″ x 17.5″ x 15.1″ {$19.99}  

Available at Walmart and The Home Depot, the All Access Organizers are a fantastic storage solution for the things you want access to in a flash. If I had the opportunity to add or change any features, I would love to see handles on the side because I would like to be able to easily carry the containers from room to room. I would also love to see them offered in more neutral colours, so they can blend into any room’s decor. Overall, I give the All Access Organizers 2 thumbs up!

Win It!

Wordless Wednesday – Homemade Gluten Free Cheese Sticks {LINKY}

Psst. I have a secret-  I really love food – and here is what I have been craving lately: 

Gluten Free fried cheese sticks

Don’t the look amazing? They’re my homemade gluten free fried cheese sticks. Here’s the recipe, they are SO simple to make!

Ingredients:

Cooking Oil (I used canola), enough to cover 1 inch of your cooking pot 

FROZEN Cheese Sticks  (I cut ‘real’ cheese (cheddar, actually, but obviously mozzarella would be ideal, too) in to small sticks but you can also use 8 string cheese sticks too, cut in half.

2 eggs, beaten well in a bowl 

1 cup gluten free chicken coating (or breadcrumbs if you aren’t gluten-free)

Pizza sauce 

Method:

1. Using tongs, coat each piece of cheese with the beaten eggs   

2. Place each piece of cheese in a small container of your coating mix, one at a time, gently ‘shaking’ the container back and forth to ensure even coverage 

3. Repeat steps 1 and 2

 4. Once all the cheese has been coated, gently place them into a hot pot of hot oil to cook. It will take roughly 30-60 seconds in total to cook them. Be careful not to burn them, and ensure that they are not overcooked (cheese will start to ‘leak’ out).

5.  Remove them from the oil and place on a plate of paper towels to absorb the extra oil 

6. Serve with pizza sauce and enjoy! 


‘Gluten Free’ is still the New Me! #GlutenFree

So it has been 20 days since I adapted a gluten-free lifestyle – woo hoo! I say lifestyle because it is SO much more than just a dietary change. In fact, the numerous benefits of going gluten-free has been more than amazing! From feeling more energetic and less spacey to treating medical issues and losing weight, I am a big believer in the healing powers of removing gluten from my body. 

I want to make it clear that while I am removing foods and drinks containing gluten from my diet, I am certainly not depriving myself of eating delicious, healthy food.  Here are just a few pictures of what I’ve been enjoying:

Gluten Free Meals

{brown rice pasta}

gluten free meal

{gluten free bagel and green smoothie}

gluten free meal 2

{scrambled eggs, greek yogurt and gluten free toast}

gluten free meal 3

 {brown rice pancakes}

As you can see from the pictures above, I am not starving, nor am I eating things that taste less than pleasant. I have to say, going gluten-free has been a wonderful reminder to try new foods because I am definitely getting a little bit more creative at meal planning now!  :)

Do you have any dietary restrictions? Going gluten-free has been pretty easy for me. Was it difficult for you to make dietary changes in the past?
