Today~I am sharing a few of my most recent favorites on the web.
I recently became inspired by My Nguyen and her instagram images of delicous and healthy dishes. Check her site out here: myhealthydish.com
Additionally, I cannot get enough of the jewelry collection by Dogeared. It’s the two new fall items I am daydreaming about, oh and should I choose AZ or FL? I definitely need in gold. I lean more toward FL since I am a self-hating Floridian who loves to go there on vacation. Hence this post.
Arizona, is a State of Mind, indeed.
and the third obsession this week with Christmas approaching is the Pinterest board Christmas DIY. ASide from now eating Pringles in order to collect enough tins to house my cookies I am going to make, this thing has tons of stuff I want to make but may never, but I am going to try to pick one more craft in addition to the Pringles tin and go with it this year.
Pringles, delish before and after use.
1. Apple cider vinegar. Apparently it’s natures healer, I had a terrible breakout and used it straight on a q-tip as a spot treatment, the acne was gone within three days! Reader’s digest did an entire list of them here.
2. Baking soda. Aside from keeping the fridge smelling good, it cleans toys, and can help relieve diaper rash when you make it as a paste.
3. Calmoseptine. so many uses and thanks to my friend I am a believer ! Use for rashes, acne, sunburn, and skin pain (external use only).
4. Arnica Creme & Traumeel. Use to prevent big bruises on your skin, or in our case babies skin. Bruises mean healing but aren’t always pretty, when my girls fall or bump after TLC, we follow it with soothing natural Arnica. Traumeel is homeopathic and contains no aspirin which is great and it DOES work for pains.

So, I have scoured the aisles of the Buy Buy Baby and Amazon marketplace to find and bring the very best teethers from our experience of two girls in the last two years, meaning two sets of teeth, to the world.
My number one favorite by far is plain ole frozen vegetables. Celery, cut washed and frozen is such a delicious treat for the little one see photo below… Carrots run a close second to favorite vegetable but they have to be frozen. Now, I will warn you that the salary once frozen and chewed on for a few minutes by baby, becomes slimy and almost like they squeeze all the water out of it. So get it away from your baby as soon as you see it shrivel up, or else they could shove it all in their small mouth.
My second favorite is the Battat keys available at Target, they are stainless steel dental grade keys with an interactive key chain for your little one to play with as well.
I’m not going to lie, we found ourselves victim to liking Sophie the giraffe. However, after losing two of these $20 teethers I really cannot remember the girls doing much with them, other than squeaking them and playing with them. So if you buy them secondhand.
Another good favorite happens to be just straight up spoons, either plastic baby spoon or regular stainless steel spoons. Easy and basically free.
It’s sort of funny and ironic the second time around you really realize you don’t need all this stuff unique you thought you needed the first time.
Good luck on your teething adventures.
