Even if you don't have kids, I bet you know Sophie the Giraffe.  She's adorable and babies love her!  
I know I have a few beautiful moms reading this blog, so I've decided to review some of my favorite and least favorite baby and mommy products.  
Today, I wanted to share with you a baby favorite.  I've been a fan of  Sophie the Giraffe products since I had my little girl and this teether is one of my favorites.  

So Pure Teether is made in France of 100% natural rubber, it's BPA, PVC & phthalates free, it's light and easy to grab. 
It's  safe and natural providing comfort and relief during teething, it is ideal for soothing painful gums and it's a really cute on the go companion.  The two rings have different textured surfaces for baby to choose from according to his or her age and needs: 
1. ridged surface for erupting teeth 
2. raised bump surface for soothing sore gums
3. Lightweight two-ring design, easy for baby's little hands to hold and play with, it's perfect for newborns due to her perfect size.
4. Easy to clean is for sure a great plus for us moms.

While the price is more than other regular teethers, to me it's by far the best designed and  worth every cent, plus the packaging is adorable! 

You can find this item easily online anywhere from Ebay, Amazon, Pottery Barn Kids, ToysRus, Target and many more baby and mommy sites... retails for about $20.00.
I used to sell this one on my online stores, but I recently sold them all. 
I Definitely recommend this one, a must for every baby.

Mango Body Scrub
Who doesn't love The Body Shop?  
This scrub is for sure my favorite recently, perfect for my dry skin, it leaves my skin so soft that I don't have to apply lotion after each use.  I love how fragrant it makes my skin smell without being overpowering.   I apply this scrub before I turn on the water in the shower then rinse it all with warm water, 2-3 times a week. 

Do you have any favorites from The Body Shop?
All The Body Shop products are certified by Cruelty Free International as meeting their Humane Cosmetics Standard and that my friends makes me very happy.  
Be kind and support companies that are not testing on animals.

Hello gorgeous people!  
I really think the best reviews are those done after a product is completely finished, so I've decided to start new blog posts where I review some of my recent finished products.  Today, I have 2 shampoos, 1 body wash, 1 hand soap and 1 toothpaste, so let's get started!

Tea Tree Special Shampoo by Paul Mitchell
This shampoo is said to be color safe and ideal for all hair types. 
I love the invigorating scent, the tingling feeling on my scalp and it sure leaves my hair super clean after each use.
The downside of this shampoo is that it's not a all natural / organic shampoo, it's a bit on the pricey side and I didn't see any great results after using this shampoo besides the fact that it leaves my hair really clean.

JasonCalming Lavender Body Wash
Nourishes with vitamin E, Pro-vitamin B5
Pure and Natural, No harsh chemicals,
No parabens, Sodium Lauryl/ Laureth Sulfates, Phthalates or Petrolatum
Certified Organic
I am a fan of these big pump bottles, they last forever, love the lavender smell, specially that it's not overwhelming and it leaves my skin super soft. 
I definitely recommend this body wash if you're looking for a more natural body wash with a lovely lavender scent.

Avalon Organics Strengthening Shampoo Peppermint
Certified Organic and 100% vegetarian ingredients
Natural hair care without synthetic fragrances, phthalates, harsh sulfates or parabens. Contains babassu oil, Vitamin E, wheat protein, calendula and peppermint.
Love the fresh peppermint smell of this shampoo plus it leaves my hair really smooth without all the harmful chemicals that some regular ones do.  A little goes a long way making the price ok.
I am also using the conditioner now, will do a review on that one too when I am done.

Puracy Natural Hand Soap
Lavender & Vanilla
Plant-Base, non toxic, all natural, hypoallergenic and biodegradable.
I really like this liquid natural soap, I used this one in my powder room and every time someone washes their hands it leaves that nice smell of lavender and vanilla in the room, but not overpowering, which is good, because I am highly sensitive to strong fragrances.  It didn't dried out my skin at all compared to some other brands I've used before.  It gives me peace of mind knowing I am not washing my hands with harsh chemicals and for every sale Puracy donates their products to local families and kids that are less fortunate.  The only thing I would change is the consistency, I wish it wouldn't be so watery, hope their new formula is a little thicker, other then that it's definitely worth a try!  I will buy this one again for sure.

Tom's Maine Simply White Toothpaste
                                                       Natural , no Phthalates, no Parabens, no Phenoxyethanol
I love this particular Tom's toothpaste, leaves my mouth feeling super clean for hours and the flavor is great, I love the peppermint taste.  It's vegan and easy to find at any local drugstore or grocery store.  I haven't really noticed a whitening effect, but I don't get sensitive gums anymore.  I highly recommend this product. 
I also purchased the mouthwash recently,  I will do a review on that one too as soon as I am done. 

All products mentioned are made in the USA and cruelty free, means no animal testing is done!
Have you ever tried any of these products before? 
I hope that these reviews were helpful to you, let me know which cruelty-free products you've used up recently and which empties will you be repurchasing soon. 

Thanks for reading!

Comfy sweaters, warm drinks and pretty colors. I Love Autumn! For sure one of my favorite quotes for fall. 
I am back from a lovely weekend in Niagara Falls with my husband and the kids. It doesn't matter how many times and what time of the year I visit Niagara, I always hope to return soon and I always fall in love with this beautiful place each time I visit. 
This time, we enjoyed some great local shopping downtown Niagara on the Lake and since it wasn't so cold we also went for a great walk at the park and close to the lake and took some lovely photos with the kids. 
Don't forget to follow me on instagram and Facebook to see more.

Have a great week everyone!
