It's contest time!! You could win a brand new diaper, or two!!

Padded Tush stats is having a referral contest! The prizes to be won are a cloth diaper to one random person and $100 for cloth diapers for the one who referred you.

Here is how it works. Padded Tush Stats has a page full of different cloth diapering surveys you can fill out. *see them here* Once you fill out a survey, you will automatically be entered to win a cloth diaper (winner will be chosen by random on 15 July)! You can fill out as many surveys as you'd like, and for each survey you fill out, you get another entry.

On 15 July, one person will be picked to win the cloth diaper. The person that referred that person will win $100 to spend on fluff!

If you fill out surveys and put my name (Angela Heffner) in the box that says "did someone ask you to fill this out? If so can you provide their name and/or e-mail" located on each survey questionnaire, and I win the $100 I will be giving away a BG 4.0 to one of you that took the survey and left my name as the one that referred you. Don't forget, for every survey you fill out, you get another entry into the random drawing for a chance to win

Just comment here on this blog post for each survey you complete at Padded Tush stats!

Thanks in advance!!

Camera giveaway!!

Anyone here want to win a Nikon D3100 DSLR Camera?

Dolphin Organics SPF 32 mineral sunscreen review and #GIVEAWAY {US only} 8 July

It's really HOT here in Tennessee, I mean, it's about 96 degrees at 10 am! That does not stop this mama from taking the littles out to the park, the pool or on a picnic! That being said! I needed to get on the ball and get some safe, fun, non-toxic, sunscreen for us to use. Last year I used Badger sunscreen (which is still great to use) but I found Badger to be a bit thick and my skin looked chalky after application. So I came across Dolphin Organics "DO Naturals" UVA/UVB SPF 32 mineral sunscreen. How did I come across this you ask? I'm sure glad you did. See, my bloggy friend Kathy over at Safe Mama spends an enormous amount of time and energy into not only finding the safest (non-toxic) and effective items for you and your baby, but she also shares that knowledge with others!! Kathy puts together a cheat sheet of many different baby care and personal care items on her blog, and of course she has an all new 2012 sunscreen cheet sheet available! It is REALLY informative and goes over some of the dangerous chemicals that are found in typical over the counter sunscreens! Some of these chemicals include: Parabens, Phthalates, PEG’s (polyethylene glycols), Propylene Glycol, Phenoxyethanol, SLS/SLES amongst others! NONE of which you will find in DO Naturals sunscreen I'm reviewing here!
Did you know that there is a database put out by the Environmental Working Group (EWG) that measures the amount of toxic chemicals found in personal/skin care products? You can learn more about the EWG's Skin Deep Cosmetics Database here!
I was so excited when the kind folks over at Dolphin Organics agreed to send me a tube of their DO Naturals sunscreen for review!
This is what I received:
Here is a picture of the ingredients listing on the back of the tube:
Here is a little more info for you about "DO Naturals" sunscreen (taken from Dolphin Organics' website):
"Finally, our new mineral sunscreen is here!! Our new mineral sunscreen offers broad spectrum (UVA/UVB) protection without harsh chemicals or nano particles. With active ingredients Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide, we couldn't make it at least 70% organic, but we sure could make it 100% natural! Protect your family from sun damage with our all natural mineral sunscreen. Like our original Dolphin Organics™ line, our sunscreen is based in certified organic aloe, not water so a little goes a long way!"
I really like this sunscreen. It works very well and is not greasy or messy to put on. It does take some rubbing to get it onto your skin, but I think that's a good thing, because then you know that you are applying enough! After all, the two most common mistakes made when using sunscreen are not applying enough and not applying more after contact with water!

I love that DO Naturals rates a 2 on the EWG's Skin Deep Rating!

We took the boys to the water park last weekend, and I must say that this stuff is awesome! It kept them both from getting burned! Of course I reapplied it after they were playing in the water for awhile! I use it on myself too! Since we bought a house here, I find myself outside planting flowers in our somewhat naked yard (it's coming along though)!

Dolphin Organics has a wide selection of baby care items like shampoo and body wash, bubble bath, lotion and conditioner! Here is what Dolphin Organics has to say about their product line: (following information taken from Dolphin Organics' website):

"Dolphin Organics™ has created two lines of 100% plant-derived personal care products that are certified to NSF/ANSI 305 by QAI Inc. Our certified natural shampoo & body wash, conditioner, lotion and bubble bath, are all naturally tear free. All Dolphin Organics™ products rate 0 - 1 on EWG's Skin Deep® Cosmetics Database and are certified cruelty-free and vegan by PETA.

The DO Naturals™ line is also formulated with 100% plant-derived ingredients, and is as organic as possible. DO Naturals™ currently includes a mineral sunscreen offering broad-spectrum protection. Both lines are dermatology-tested hypoallergenic. All products are produced in the USA."

You can purchase the DO Naturals sunscreen directly from Dolphin Organics for $19.99.
You can also enter here to win a tube of your own! That's right! Dolphin Organics has graciously offered one LWML reader the chance to win a 3 fl oz tube of DO Naturals sunscreen!

Glass Dharma review and $25 GC #GIVEAWAY {world-wide} 23 June

I love sipping beverages out of straws! Since I am having 'plastic surgery' (trying to get rid of all plastic products within my home), I have been on the hunt for the perfect glass straw! I came across Glass Dharma on the Internet and just knew I had to try them out.
Glass Dharma graciously sent me 4 of their glass straws to try out. This is what I received:
Out of the box:

These straws are AWESOME! I've been juicing for awhile now and thought what a better time to try them out than on a morning I make a nice fresh glass of home-made juice! I juiced carrots, apples, oranges, a slice of ginger, a slice of lemon, a couple hand fulls of spinach and this is what I ended up with:
Can you say YYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYuuummmmmmmyyyyyyyyy???
Ok, the straw that is pictured above is the "Ice Tea" straw and I LOVE it! I really love all the straws I was sent. The straw pictured at the bottom of the pic above with all the other straws is my boys' favorite. It is the perfect size for their little cups and their little hands! Yes, I gave my boys a glass straw! You know why? Because Glass Dharma straws come with a lifetime guarantee against any breakage!
The set I received came with two straw cleaners. I must say these straws are super easy to use and clean. They are great! They are also available in 4 different sizes.
Have you tried glass straws? Glass Dharma straws are awesome! You can purchase these awesome straws directly from Glass Dharma's website!
Glass Dharma has generously offered one of you the chance to win a $25 GC to be used towards the purchase of your glass straws!
Another thing I almost forgot to mention is that Glass Dharma straws are made right here in the good ole USA!!! <3

Bwipes reusable baby wipes review and #GIVEAWAY {US and Canada}

Let's talk reusable wipes! I know many of you are cloth diaper lovers addicts (like myself), but what about cloth wipes?

If those are some of the things you look for in a wipe, then you need to see these awesome wipes called "Bwipes!"
I was sent 10 Bwipes for review... this is what I received:
