New Purex Scent Splash!



So, have you seen the latest and greatest product in helping you make sure your laundry smells fabulous? I have found the perfect one for me its the Purex Scent Splash

This is an in-wash fragrance booster, in a liquid form,  so even if you use perfume free detergent this can add a great scent to all of your laundry.

What I like the most about this is the way you can customize the scent of different clothes.  I know I like the strong scents that make a statement but, my husband, he is not so much into that stuff.  He wants it to smell good and clean just not fruity, floral or like a rainforest.  So for me, the Lavender Blossoms is perfect and of course since the lavender smell helps with sleep, this is a great one for your sheets and blankets! He prefers the Mountain Breeze scent.  So his stuff I put his mountain breeze in mine I put the Lavender Blossoms, good thing we wash our clothes separately.  

When Destini was a baby we all had to use scent free laundry soap and that was fine, her skin broke out with eczema if she has perfumes, but now I have found that I love the cleaning power of the scent free detergent, however I also love having my laundry smell good.  I missed it.  For some reason in my brain when something is clean it should smell clean and with scent free, I never quite got the same feeling of my laundry being done.

Purex has found a way for you to get clean clothes, and to have them smell fresh and lovely without having to sacrifice anything! I think its great!  I know for me it works and I know for everyone I tell about this product they are just over the moon about it.

You can’t change the fact that you have to do laundry, but now you can change how your laundry smells when you do it.  Try some of the new Purex Scent Splash, I think you will like it as well!

Apex Don’t Pad Yourself or the Problem

apex by ICM blog


We as women sometimes have issues that we are not really comfortable talking about with other people, even other moms or our doctors.
Urinary Incontinence is one of those issues, but did you know that childbirth is the number one cause of Stress Urinary incontinence, and some people with this condition may feel embarrassed, limit their social life, sometimes even stop exercising, it can be a very isolating problem.  One third of the female population suffers from urine incontinence, and that is a crazy amount of women.

I recently learned about a new device that can help those with urinary incontinence no matter what the cause. It is called Apex. It is a medical device that will strengthen the pelvic floor muscles to stop urinary incontinence without pills, without surgery and without pain.


Surgery is one of the ways that doctors try to help with this problem, and I don’t know about you, but that is the last thing I ever want to do. I have had surgery for a few reasons in my life and none of them were fun. Not to mention the risks of infection, complications, and the time that you would need to recover. I don’t have time to take even a few days off from my home and kids, let alone the 6 weeks needed to recover from surgery.

Urinary Incontinence happens when the muscles and other tissue that support the bladder weaken, much like any other muscle in your body the only way to get that back, is to work out this muscle. I know people have said kegel exercises help, and maybe they do to a certain extent. The Apex does work. It works by specifically working on the muscles that you need to strengthen the pelvic floor muscles that you need to stop the leaking urine.

I don’t want to wear pads my whole life, I know you if you are suffering with this don’t want to either, this is a way you can solve this issue and not have to wear pads every day. Sometimes I find it frustrating when doctors say the best thing you can do is stock up on supplies, and wear dark clothes. I don’t want to do that, I want the problem solved. I have my toddlers doctor telling me to get my child out of diapers, and my doctor telling me to start wearing them, this is not the answer to urinary incontinence. 

Apex is one of those things that your friends are not going to tell you about, I’m sorry they just aren’t and I know it seems like we should be able to talk about it to all of our friends, but that is not the reality of it.

Check out the video of Apex and see what you think of the device.  Isn’t it time we take control of this issue and deal with it instead of just padding it?  You can learn more about this on the Apex Facebook page as well as their Pinterest and Twitter feeds.  Share this post with a friend and let’s not let it be secret anymore.

 To learn more about the Apex device, please visit dontpadtheproblem.com. For the next 30 days we will be offering $35 discount plus free shipping (enter code JB0415 at checkout).

Unique 100% Muslin Blankets Product Giveaway

When I had my first child we had a lot of flannel receiving blankets and we used them for everything from swaddling to burp cloths to makeshift diapers when we were washing.  

The blankets are still sold and given as gifts for almost every baby I know.  The new receiving blankets are so different from that.

The 100% Organic Muslin Swaddle Blankets I received for review were very different but, so high quality I wished they were just a little bit bigger for my bed.  The blankets are so large that they can be used for so many things from swaddling, a stroller cover, a car seat cover, a picnic blanket, they are great for blocking the sun when baby is sleeping.  


I loved it in the stroller when David was sleeping in the mall, everyone wants to touch and this stopped that from happening.  They are extremely soft and even right out of the box 100% Organic Muslin Swaddle Blankets
felt buttery soft, but after i washed them they were even softer, I am sure that will continue every time I wash them.  


These are a bit thicker than some other muslin blankets, which allows them to hold up better and block sun more efficiently.  They are 47″ x 47″ which means they are large enough for a swaddler even on a bigger baby, I loved that they were large enough so that they corner at the end went all the way around to be tucked in nicely in the front of the baby.

Even though they are thicker they are still very breathable.

The 100% Organic Muslin Swaddle Blankets come with a lifetime “better than money back” guarantee.  They are that sure that you will love them.

Don’t leave them in the box or put them away after that newborn period, Destini loves to use them for a clean place to set her doll babies on and the size is good for her to lay down on and cuddle up.

With the stylish prints and great quality I am sure the 100% Organic Muslin Swaddle Blankets will soon be one of your favorites as well!

GreenAir Essential Oil Diffuser 05/01




An essential oil diffuser uses the cold air to break down the essential oils into microscopic particles and disperse them into the air. As we breath, the itty bitty particles of oil enter our body and work their specific job.  I was fortunate enough to review a great GreenAir Spa Mister diffuser.  

Diffusing isn’t the same as just making things smell good. If you use high quality essential oils and they are diffused properly they actually carry powerful benefits for your health.


I know, in the very little knowledge I have about essential oils one of the questions I hear often is, “Can’t I just use my humidifier’?  The answer is no, and I did some research on this to find out why.


Kathleen at Yankee Homestead says this about using Essential Oils in a humidifier:
1. Most humidifiers run continuously. There is no timer setting to allow the body the necessary time to absorb the oils.

2. Essential oils, especially citrus oils, break down plastic. Most humidifiers are not constructed to hold up to essential oil usage. diffuser are specifically designed to handle essential oils. humidifier are made to handle water.

3. Humidifier do not break essential oils down into that teeny, tiny size that allows for greater absorption by the body. humidifier can disperse essential oils, but a diffuser will nebulize them into miniscule particles that can be more readily inhaled and absorbed.

4. Some humidifiers use warm air. You definitely would not want to use essential oils in a warm air humidifier, because heating the oils can damage their therapeutic properties.

It is worth it to get a diffuser and not to use a humidifier! 

For me and my family, I use essential oils pretty sparingly, I know there are others that use them daily and even internally.  I think diffusing is safer than any other method of using them.

I love the diffuser I got from GreenAir, it is a beautiful addition to my bedroom, it does not take up a lot of space and it works really well.  The diffuser itself is actually under a pretty glass vase that has a hole at the top to allow the mist out.  You don’t see all of the inner workings of it in your room.  It’s very easy to use and clean, has two different timer options and a three level night-light.  I also enjoy the sound of the diffuser, it sounds like a gentle stream to me. This GreenAir SpaMister runs for up to 4 hours and is cool to touch. It features 2 setting options: 1 Hour timer, 2 Hour timer and Power Off all controlled by the push of a button


Because you fill it with water and then only use a few drops of oil it also makes your oils last much longer, but it is enough to get aromatherapy essential oils dispersed into a micro fine vapor, allowing them to remain suspended in the air for an extended time.

There are quite a few diffusers out there now and I know that they are such a confusing thing to purchase. At GreenAir they have many for you to choose from and explain the benefits of each one so that you get the one you need.  GreenAir is graciously sponsoring a giveaway for our reader of one of their diffusers.  Enter Below and Good Luck to all!
