Total amazeballs and absolute shocker 7 months. Anyways, December. No better way to return to my favourite linky, it …

Want, Need, Wear, Read – Why I’m NOT Buying The “Four Gift Rule”

In Life by eva.katona@yahoo.com7 Comments

You’ve probably heard this before: you ought to buy four (that’s 4!) Christmas presents for your kids: something they want, something they need, something to wear, something to read. Personally, I couldn’t disagree more. Firstly, clothing items are not exactly presentable, unless your little one just started to discover her/his style (colour or character obsession at this stage really) and that’s …

Lucky lucky me! My friends at Eden’s Semilla sent me some wonderful new stuff to review. Knowing some of their products already, I was really excited.

Review: Eden’s Semilla 100% Pure Organic Jojoba Oil

In Life, Reviews by eva.katona@yahoo.comLeave a Comment

I love reviewing new natural and organic products. This jojoba oil from Eden’s Semilla comes directly from this young U.S. based company selling natural oils and serums. It’s cold pressed and unrefined. We all know that means good quality, but how exactly? Well, the best oils are cold pressed. Using a careful pressing or grinding procedure and ensuring that the temperature …

Benefits Of Using Nebulizing Essential Oil Diffuser

In Home & Garden, Life, Reviews by eva.katona@yahoo.comLeave a Comment

I used to love elegant scented candles. I really like the balmy welcome when I get home or having guests and they also eliminate other smells. Like baby vomit 🙂 But then I’ve learned that they are not very good for your health. In fact, they potentially contain harmful chemicals which are then released by burning the candle and we …

In Life by eva.katona@yahoo.com1 Comment

The Time Magazine recently published an article about Spotify releases birthing playlist which gave me the idea to make my own “mix tape”. It’s not only fun (I always liked to make “best of” lists in my head, like in High Fidelity) and gives you the satisfaction of doing some preparation for when in labour, but it could work as your last …

I have received these products in exchange for my honest review. Simply sent me these washing tablets to review them, as I often do eco – and baby friendly product reviews. Their washing tabs fall into both category. As I already wrote about it, my son had mild eczema, now he is on the mend – but we follow some …
