Logic Products- All Purpose Cleaner Part 1

May 24, 2017 § Leave a comment

Hello welcome back!

I know I’ve been MIA these last two weeks, but my brother in law is getting married this weekend so I’ve been running around the last couple of weeks trying to get outfits for Scarlett and I and suits for Angelo and my husband since they are apart of the wedding. All through the madness Scarlett has been sick but its all been respiratory and it has been driving me insane because it seems like shes had it for over three weeks now! Anywho, I thought this would be the  perfect timing to talk about a natural based product I have been using to disinfect after the kiddos and the house in general.

First, lets back track a bit and let me tell you why I DON’T use BLEACH in my house for cleaning purposes.

  1. It triggers my migraines
  2. I hate the smell
  3. The fumes it produces such as ammonia 
  4. Gives me itchy hands; irritates my skin

All of these factors and others that I’m sure you could Google and read upon are just some as to why I don’t ever use bleach to clean up at home. I try to find alternatives to safer more natural products and thats where Logic Products All Purpose Cleaner comes in. I’ve been using this product non stop lately mainly because of Scarlett being sick. I’ve been wiping everything down that she touches or that anyone touches so that Angelo won’t catch anything. I don’t need two kids sick now!

This All Purpose Cleaner comes in two different sents; Citrus Grove and Jasmine Mist. They both smell amazing but I’ve been using each bottle for different purposes around the house. Today I’ll touch bases on Citrus Grove. This sent is exactly what it sounds like its a natural therapeutic grapefruit oil aroma. Once you spray some of this goodness on your counters it is safe to say there are no toxic residue left floating around for your family to inhale. Also, it cleans very well around the house on every surface except wood. I’ve been using the All Purpose Cleaner to wipe down/disinfect all of the kids toys, furniture and food spills.

When it’s time to feed Scarlett I always grab a few things to have on hand so I don’t have to walk away from her and grab them later. Those things consist of her food, spoon, sippy cup, wipes, paper towel/cloth, and cleaning solution to clean up after her spills and eating chair. I feel safe using this all natural plant based product on her baby things for the simple fact that I don’t worry that if she places them in her mouth after cleaning there are no harmful ingredients that will harm her in any way. Just the thought of cleaning something with bleach and then having her place it right back in her mouth makes me cringe! 

Logic Products all Natural HomeLogic products are phthalate free, Ammonia free, formaldehyde free, chlorine free, bleach free, petroleum free, DEA & PEG free, paraben free, nonylphenol ethoxylate free, triclosan free methylisothiazolinone & benzisothiazolinone free, TEA free, and do not contain artificial colors or fragrances. They are cruelty free and vegan free as well!

I’ll be closing up my overall review on a seperate post next week sharing another way I like to use these products focusing on the sent Jasmine Mist!

Teething with Nuby

May 11, 2017 § Leave a comment

Hi mamas, it’s been a hectic couple of days but here we are!

So our little diva has been full blown teething since about 4 months. It got worse over time with night fevers and constant diarrhea. She would cry over her sore gums and try to put anything in her mouth to soothe her. 

For the last month I have been using the Nuby Adult Teethable Necklaces. They are fashionable, made of 100% silicone, and BPA free. The necklaces themselves are truly amazing!

My current fashion pieces to wear around my neck have been bandannas, string necklaces and jewelry. Those are always the first things Scarlett decides to put in her mouth. Now, I always choose a teething necklace according to my outfit and that she can enjoy. The teething necklaces provide stimulation to her gums and emerging teeth.

I can honestly say getting dressed in the morning has been an ease! I would spend hours contemplating on what to wear, getting accessories put together and having Scarlett on the back borner thinking to myself “will she pull on this”, “will she put this in her mouth and get cut”, but now I just grab a teething necklace and layer it on with the rest of my jewelry that day. I’ve had other women ask me where I bought the necklace around my neck and become in awe when I mention its a teether for the little gal. So yes, they are that fashionable!

The teething necklaces silicone beads are a perfect size for small little hands to easily grab and get into their mouths. Each necklace is different but there are different styles for everyones liking. They come in various colors as well. The silicone is very soft and easy to clean. I simply run it through running water with mild soap and let air dry.

Now head on over to my Instagram @deearivett give us a follow if you haven’t and enter our GIVEAWAY with @NubyUSA for a chance to win an Adult Teething Necklace of your choice!

You can shop the Nuby Adult Teethable Necklaces at BabiesRUs and Target.

Xox, dee

Morning routine 

April 11, 2017 § Leave a comment

Hey guys!

Lets talk Shea! My morning routine once Scarlett and Angelo wake up consist of trying to get them fed and bathed. Shea Moisture has been my all time favorite since when Angelo started to react upon using Johnson & Johnson and developing minor eczema. I tried everything and Shea Moisture was MY solution! 

I am a big time lover of shea butter and coca butter, so anything with any of those ingredients is a must for me. Our morning routine currently consist of using the Shea Moisture Raw Shea Chamomile & Argan Oil Wash & Shampoo along with the Raw Shea Chamomile & Argan Oil Baby Lotion. I start off with setting up over at the sink with everything I need and placing Scarlett’s blooming bath running with luke warm water.

Once the temperature is right I place her in and let her wiggle her toes into the water and start soaking her with a cloth towel. She loves to just sit in the water and play! Shea has changed their bottles and now use a quicker and easier foam pump to dispense the Wash & Shampoo, which I love so much better! 

I’ll use the cloth towel and pump about 2-3 pumps out. I’ll wash her front and back then her hair and rince her off. Once she’s all dried up I start applying the Raw Shea Chamomile & Argan Oil Baby Lotion. Lastly, I massage this all over her body and it just smells soo good! 

What I personally love about these products are listed below;

  1. Smell of shea 
  2. Soft skin
  3. Moisturized skin
  4. Easiness of the foam bottle

Shea Moistures promise is to provide products that are paraben, phthalates, paraffin, mineral oil, DEA, petroleum, formaldehyde, propylene, sulfate, and cruelty free. They are a family owned and operated buisness certified organic, natural and fair trade ingredients. 

We use Shea on a daily at our home and it has been a staple for the past 4 years. You can find these products at Target, Babies R Us, and on their website www.sheamoisture.com.

Nuby March Series/Week 3: Bath Crayons

March 27, 2017 § Leave a comment

Helloo, welcome back!

We have reached our last week of the Nuby March Series! This last product Angelo had quite some fun during bath time. The Nuby Bath Crayons come in a set of 5 fun and vibrant colors. They are easy to work with, with just a push of a button to slide up for more coloring or slide down when completely finish. They definitely help stimulate your little humans brain and get those juices flowing.

Angelo had an awesome time coloring and drawing away, but to be quite honest these weren’t my favorite. The plastic handle doesn’t hold the crayon that well in place which made the crayon slip out plenty of times. In order for the crayons to show their true color they have to be wet a few times. Not a big deal but just a heads up! Regardless of them not being my favorite Angelo still enjoyed bath time with them. Heck he’s a kid what does he care!! haha

Overall it easily washes off smooth surfaces for easy clean up and they are BPA free. Great for ages 3+ years and can be found at Amazon for purchase.

Nuby March Series/Week 2: Stacking Bath Boats

March 18, 2017 § Leave a comment

Welcome back to the Nuby March Series!

This week will be all about the Stacking Bath Boats. This is a pack of 5 colorful boats which can be used during bath time and if turned upside down water comes down right through creating waterfall fun! We on the other hand use our Stacking Bath Boats to teach Angelo his colors and to get his brain working by having him stack the boats in their correct order based on size.

The boats come in red, blue, yellow, green, and orange. They each are a different size and are stack able. This is Angelo’s favorite way to learn/practice his colors! All I do is grab some plain white construction paper and write out the name of the colors according to their matching marker.

Then he is to match the word with the correct colored boat by placing each boat on top of the word/color. Also, we go over each letter in the word and this teaches him the alphabet as well as learning his colors. I found this activity to be more eye catching and it keeps him focused for much longer than doing flashcards. We love flashcards, but after a few minutes he’s done and on to the next thing.

The Nuby Stacking Bath Boats are great for children 9 months and up. They are BPA free and an ease to put away! They can be used in the bath, at the pool or beach, and just about anywhere where there is water….. and paper like in our choice of use!

It is available for purchase on Amazon. Be sure to follow Nuby for upcoming products through Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest.

Nuby March Series/Week 1: Sure Grip Miracle Mat

March 3, 2017 § Leave a comment

Hi guys!

This month every week I will be sharing a couple Nuby products I have been using on a daily basis with you guys. I have been using these products for the past couple of months just so I can give my truthful and honest opinion on them!

I will start off the week with the Sure Grip Miracle Mat. I mainly wanted to use this for Angelo’s therapy sessions for the simple fact that the mat has two compartments for food and has a non-slip base. This mat works for us because the two compartments are a perfect size for different foods. The showcasing of just two servings doesn’t overwhelm him while trying to get him to try new things. The non-slip base sticks to flat surfaces and literally does not move! During his sessions he sometimes becomes frustrated because he doesn’t want to finish a meal. He tends to slap the plate off the table making all the food go to waste and having to end our food therapy sessions short. The Miracle Mat has changed this for us because it sticks directly on the table and will not wiggle or move even if he touches it.

We use it at home frequently especially for breakfast time, because breakfast is NOT his favorite meal. This morning I was able to get him to eat some eggs and strawberry waffles out of it with no problem. Overall, I love the easiness of this mat. It serves as a plate and mat so it keeps all the food in one place. It can be used right about when baby is ready to start solids and +.  The plate itself is silicone, BPA free and dishwasher safe so right after a meal you can just wipe it down or toss it in the washer. It is available for purchase at Babies r Us and Amazon.

Down time Music Choices 

January 23, 2017 § Leave a comment

Hi guys!

I get asked a lot what stations or apps I use to put little miss Scarlett down for naps and bedtime. I thought I’d gather some of our favorites so far and share with you all. These might help put your little one down as well or even yourself lol (not lying I’ve fallen asleep with Scarlett several times #momprobs). 

I’m going to start off with my top choice. She’s been listening to sonatas since birth and loves it! The app I use is called Sonata in the app store. My choice of composers each time are Bethoveen and Bach. What I love about this app are the features it provides. At the top right corner there is a tab called “Composers” you can press it and choose what you are looking for like for example I always have it on “help kids” or “help sleep” and it gives you a list of composers who can provide just that. Also, it has a “Votes” tab at the bottom which displays a percentage of what each composer trully helps with. The votes come from people who use the app, I thought that was really nice.

My second choice is an app I’m sure everyone has on there phone and thats Pandora. In Pandora we love to listen to Baby Lullaby Radio and I recently discovered Enya that was recommended by a friend. Baby Lullaby is your typical childrens lullabies. It has a lot of Rockabye baby music which I love the kids to listen to. Angelo has listened to Rockabye baby since birth as well and we carry cds in the car too. Enya is very soothing and peaceful. I truly like to listen to it myself. It brings some sort of peace to my heart. Its amazing! 

Lastly, the app Deep Sleep. It consists of a group of different sounds. The one we constantly use is Sounds from Nature and choose Rain (medium). 

Down below I attached how these apps are pictured on the app atore so they are easier to locate. I hope I have helped some of you with new choices to help put your little ones down. I also use these apps during bathtime to make it a soothing ambiance for Scarlett.
