Liam and I had a fabulous time taking over your feed this weekend. Thanks for joining me this weekend and I hope you’ll join me on my account @the_realrebekah. I hope that everyone had a refreshing weekend, and don’t forget to stop by Eco Chic to shop all of their wonderful products! (Including this @graceandlaceco romper and @saltwatersandals and of course @millieandroo for your little.)
Before nap time I like to add @doterra Lavender Essential Oil to my @lavaessentials diffuser necklace to help Liam to fall asleep. He is still nursing in the morning, before nap time and before bed (if not more, lol.) The Lavender Essential Oil helps him to relax and get ready for nap time. Now that he is one, he can easily get distracted while he is nursing, especially if our Lab Zeus is in the room. What are some of your tried and true nap time routines?!
When I found out that I was pregnant, I began to do research to find out that baby clothes are actually one of the most toxic items that babies come into contact with in their first year of life. Conventional clothing is sprayed with pesticides and formaldehydes to prevent the clothing from being eaten by bugs and pests on the journey from the factories over seas to the states. Sleepwear, bedding and mattresses are sprayed with harmful flame retardants that have been known to cause cancer, delay development and contribute to allergies. LIKE WHAT, I was mind blown, that someone so innocent and pure, could be exposed to substances so harmful, so early. I started on a quest for better clothing! WHICH IS WHY I am so excited to introduce you all to @millieandroo, this is another mom-owned company. Better yet, her clothes are HAND MADE in American Canyon CA! I can rest assured that there are no harmful chemicals being sprayed on Liam’s clothing. Shopping local is not only great for the community, it is also great for your family! ⠀
What was one thing that shocked you the most when you began to make more conscious purchases?? For me it was realizing that less is more. I can get buy with less “stuff” that is higher quality because it will last longer!
I know that it is BLAZING hot today, but I am so ready for fall! This Loyal Soul shirt is an Eco Chic original, and this color is a staple for my fall capsule wardrobe. I am also SWOONING over the resent addition of Vintage Jeans that Eco Chic has in stock! Shorts, Jeans, Crops, Distressed, whatever your style is, I bet they have them in stock! Each pair of jeans has been hand picked, washed in Eco friendly detergent and distressed with love! What is your closet like?? Do you capsule wardrobe? Have 100 items for the whole year? What seems to work best for you?!
