    Erin, is that last photo an announcement? If so, congrats and happy day! If not, why are you taking pre-natals? Baby-less and clueless over here, haha.

    Love buckwheat! I have never used it in salad. I make it for breakfast with a little maple syrup or honey and some berries 🙂

      Oops! Meant to write New Chapter! But the link is still good!

    What kind of prenatals are those (if it's not too nosy to ask)? Mine come in this weird plastic-y casing, and those look much more benign.

    Those gloves would definitely come in handy (pun intended) in this freezing winter weather!

    • Reply Erin February 21, 2015 at 11:11 pm

      Good one!

    • Reply admin February 21, 2015 at 11:12 pm

      Yeah, just kinda…pee stink! We just threw caution to the wind and boiled them in a big pot of water with baking soda! Good as new!

    You can boil diaper covers with baking soda? Was it amonia-stink or poop-stink? More info please!

        Awaiting a kit in the mail as I type!

      I just learned about them! So tiny and cute! They're paraben, phthalate, and cruelty-free and EU compliant, so pretty good as far as cosmetics go! (PS. Just firmed up a little project with them soon, so stay tuned!)!

    Are you a fan of stowaway?? Always on the lookout for good makeup that is body/earth friendly and you are an expert on these matters 🙂
