Sheets, comforters, towels, underwear. At our house, it’s all white. On top of which, 75 percent of my wardrobe is white! It’s a bad, bad habit. One of the things readers ask most about is how do I maintain them all! Keeping all of these bright whites – bright white – became even more of a challenge when my family began to grow, and babies started to help me get things messy. I found that throwing out my whites wasn’t going to work for me. I love them too much! So instead, I started to explore laundry detergents.Using certain detergents- over time- turned my whites yellow! What’s worse? Other detergents started to wear down the fabrics of my favorite pieces. Fabrics became thin and holes started to appear. My towels and sheets started to obtain a strong chemical smell that I couldn’t seem to wash away. With how often all of my whites needed to be washed, this wasn’t going to work!I tried OxiClean™ Laundry detergent after being referred to it by my mother. She’s another fellow whites lover, maybe where I got it from? I wanted to give it a try on it’s own, and eliminate all other whitening/bleaching agents. Not only did it wipe away the stains, but it also began to eliminate the yellowing! Anyone ever tried to wash white sneakers? The yellowing is almost unavoidable! OxiClean™, you are my Converses’ new best friend! I love that I don’t need any additives, and one wash is plenty for most stains!People will try to tell you that once you become a parent, you should say goodbye to white clothing, but I don’t agree! You just need the right cleaning routine. There is a reason why OxiClean™ now has a premier detergent, and that is because it works!

When Target sent us word that they were re-releasing Trolls and Troll brand apparel and accessories this Fall we flipped. We are total children of the 90’s and we were immediately flooded with memories. Like my Troll themed 7th birthday. See below.
We knew we wanted to recreate this hilarious 90’s birthday party, so we brought Emily’s nieces over to show them all of our favorite 90’s memories. Ready?
Taught them how to make fortune tellers, and shockingly we didn’t even have to look it up on YouTube, just like riding a bike. Practiced our “S” with our gel-roller pens. Decorated our caboodles with puff paint. Are you dying at that sentence? Got our Troll hair on. These Troll sweatshirts are the softest things we’ve ever felt. Amazing! [Quincey’s Graphic Tee] Crazy hair don’t care! Perfect for our curly haired Quincey! Sunburst art with smelly markers: They were enthralled with every single element of this little party. We loved showing them all these fun nostalgic activities! What’s a party without cake? This guy was such an easy topper, and with some perfectly bold 90’s colored sprinkles he was all ready to go!And they loved getting decked out in Troll gear! You can find their apparel, troll necklaces at Target online and in store and troll dolls in store only, they released just last week!So what did we miss? Any 90’s favorites you’d add to your own party?

One thing we tend to forget when Summer is over, is that our kids are still being exposed to sunshine. Novel thought, right? But, really sending them and ourselves outdoors can still cause a burn, especially as our pretty base tans start to fade. We love that Babyganics new lotion has SPF in it, but doesn’t smell like sunscreen at all so our kids don’t even flinch when we lather them up. If they put up a fight let them lather you up, too! We have a couple super sensitive skinned boys over here, Callum being one of them. His skin has a slight rash in certain places and lotions actually burn him sometimes. This is so gentle he doesn’t mind at all, and having the SPF 15 built in not having to lather him up twice is amazing! Babyganics is plant-based, non-allergenic, and being at Target makes the switch so easy! Their product line is growing by the day it seems, check out all their offerings at Babyganics.com — (Cal’s tank is from Little Edge Threads)If you needed any other reason to try it out, Babyganics has teamed up with Cookies for Kids’ Cancer to help raise awareness and money for research in the fight against pediatric cancer. Portions of proceeds will go toward this important cause! Ready to enter to win the $100 Target Gift card? This card will not only help you stock up on Babyganics but other favorite Made to Matter brands like Happy Family, Boom Chicka Pop, Zarbees, Hylands, Justins and Kind Snacks.ENTER!
