Can we talk about sprays?!? back to school + my girls long hair = 3 sprays a morning. i'll post about each one individually over the next week. because back to school has us super crazy busy! 😳🤷🏻‍♀️ first spray: diy leave in conditioner. 🙌☑️ my girls roll their hair into crazy knots while they sleep. crazy knots. we even try and braid their hair nightly to prevent the screaming knot removal in the morning. enter... diy leave in conditioning spray: every time i looked over the ingredients of leave in conditioner, i was always left disappointed. why all the crap!?! until one day my sister in law mentioned she uses a spray bottle filled with a little conditioner and water. 🎉🎉joy🎉🎉 it works!! easy to make. easy to use. and it makes those tangles disappear quickly and easily! how to make: 1. get a spray bottle 2. fill with 2-3 pumps of your chosen #nontoxic #conditioner 3. fill the rest of the bottle up with water. we have an ro system so i use that water 4. shake the bottle before using 5. spray and brush out those #tangles . . . . . . #tween #productdiscovery #nontoxic #clean #green #greenliving #greenproducts #organicproducts #organicbeauty #naturalbeauty #greenbeauty #organicblogger #naturalblogger #greenblogger #organicmama #naturalmama #greenmama #healthykids #btweengreen #hair #haircare #morningrush #detangler @btweengreen

btweengreen That time your tween asked to do the second coat "all by herself" #growingup getting those fingers and toes ready for the first day of school. 🤗💅🏻#wheredidsummergo lils used @karmaorganicspa #seaportbreeze & #rosario which has been our staple for a few years. mia used @flora1761 #paintedfern that we got in our goodie bag from #ibeny2017 and is a big fan! both are free of formaldehyde, dbp and touene. still learning what to look for in a #nontoxic nail polish. any additional insight would be welcomed! . . . . . . . #tween #productdiscovery #nontoxic #clean #green #greenliving #greenproducts #organicproducts #organicbeauty #naturalbeauty #greenbeauty #organicblogger #naturalblogger #greenblogger #organicmama #naturalmama #greenmama #healthykids #nailpolish #btweengreen

btweengreen After finishing a page turner like #whatmademaddyrun it's hard not to think about the "what ifs" with your #tweendaughter asleep upstairs. i knew the media story about, @maddyholleran. a girl who grew up with a seemingly perfect life that ended tragically with her taking her own life as a freshman in college. i'm not sure what exactly it was about this book that didn't let me put it down. i knew the outcome and there wasn't a specific thing that "should have been done differently" that was uncovered. it spoke to me in a different way. i've always been a supporter of releasing the stigma of #mentalillness this story is more than that. a glimpse into the world we live in and my daughters will only know. author @katefagan3 describes it as: a world within our phones that we go to as a daily escape or to be distracted. we are fueled by anticipation, part of an ecosystem in the posts we share and absorb on social media. we perfectly curate the image we share, we monitor the feedback of the post, which influences us and how we might share next time. cycling again. we start to view our world through a lens of what shares well. asking, are we all experiencing life differently because of this cycle? is this the only world our children will know? the ecosystem of social media? i don't see it changing anytime soon. couple that with average stresses brought on by ones self, parents, school, work, sports, friends, etc. mental illness can be triggered quickly or it can be a slow progression. each individual experience is completely different. the only thing we can do is help make the stigma go away. understand everyone walks a different path in life. open dialogue is important. knowing that you are not alone. that people feel what you feel and maybe something worse. i am choosing to "share" this with you because i think it's important to be open and remember no one is perfect. we all have inner thoughts and feelings. hopefully one day we can be more open with them. at least i hope that for my girls... . . . . . . . #tween #mentalhealth #greenliving #organicblogger #naturalblogger #greenblogger #organicmama #naturalmama #btweengreen

btweengreen We are big @ninjawarrior fans. after a long bike ride we stopped by the playground to have some more fun. the girls made it into a #ninjawarrior training course. concentrating on 5 different obstacles. #monkeybars we're always the hardest for me as a kid. thankfully our girls love them. #stronggirls 💪 . . . . . . . #tween #productdiscovery #clean #green #greenliving #greenproducts #organicproducts #organicbeauty #naturalbeauty #greenbeauty #organicblogger #naturalblogger #greenblogger #organicmama #naturalmama #greenmama #healthykids #btweengreen #motherdaughter #outside #summerfun #healthykids

btweengreen What's better than an ice cold cup of water after a soccer conditioning run? drinking it out of an awesomely fun cup by @rallt who'da thunk a cup would be our new favorite product? the girls have been drinking out of regular cups for years. we have glass cups that they drink their daily beverages out of, but when friends come over we tend to put the glass away and grab a plastic cup, just in case their friends aren't so comfortable with glass. these rallt cups have changed this up and have become the girls fan favorite. see full our review and mia's handwritten personal review on the blog (link in bio). . . . . . . #tween #productdiscovery #clean #green #greenliving #greenproducts #organicproducts #organicbeauty #naturalbeauty #greenbeauty #organicblogger #naturalblogger #greenblogger #organicmama #naturalmama #greenmama #healthykids #btweengreen #motherdaughter #rallt #refreshing #stainlesssteel #cups #life

btweengreen Local farmers market sunday = washing our haul for easy snacking. the girls love 🍅&🌶 so we set a bowl out on the counter for them to grab and go. we started using @rebel_green #fruitveggie cleaning spray a few months ago. compared to other brands we used, we really like theirs best. we especially like that it helps remove those uninvited residues safely and is #gf. we buy ours from our local @wholefoods . . . . . . #tween #productdiscovery #clean #green #greenliving #greenproducts #organicproducts #organicbeauty #naturalbeauty #greenbeauty #organicblogger #naturalblogger #greenblogger #organicmama #naturalmama #greenmama #healthykids #btweengreen #motherdaughter #rebelgreen #eatyourveggies

btweengreen Rainy days are perfect for mid-day masks with my girls. we received our second #beautyheroes box this last week. august's beauty discovery is the bean antioxidant mask by @mahalo.care check out @beautyheroes for more info on this months discovery. the mask also came with a neat sidekick bamboo beauty brush. love how beauty heroes offers a sidekick each month. who doesn't love an extra bonus?! the bean mask has a coffee smell, but its not overwhelming (coming from this crazy person who doesn't like coffee). when applied the mask is very smooth. unlike most other masks we've tried it didn't crisp up to be completely hard as a rock. or i should say it didn't feel like that on. when removing the mask it was hard but it did not do that "over tightening" thing most masks do. which i sort of appreciated and helped make it easy to keep it on for the suggested duration. the girls had a ton of fun applying the mask on me and on each other. at first mia was hesitant, not sure if it was the rainy day blues or what, since she's done masks before. lils was overly excited about the fun. in the end both girls liked how their skin felt after we washed the mask off. very smooth was the consensus. as the day went on my skin personally felt softer and softer. the bean by mahalo receives an a+ from the @btweengreen team. see mia's review and more on the blog www.btweengreen.com (link in bio) . . . . . . #tween #productdiscovery #clean #green #greenliving #greenproducts #organicproducts #organicbeauty #naturalbeauty #greenbeauty #organicblogger #naturalblogger #greenblogger #organicmama #naturalmama #greenmama #healthykids #btweengreen #motherdaughter #masks #mahalo #skin #facial #beautyheroes

btweengreen Part 2: stopped at @wholefoods for afternoon grocery shopping with the girls. used the @thinkdirty app to check out a few other #handsoap ratings. as i am searching for a #clean #green #nontoxic hand soap for the family to use. i've bought the everyone's in the past (rated 5), the 7th gen #dishsoap is always in my soap dispenser at the kitchen (rated a 1!) and i picked up some @drbronner sugar soap to try out (rated a 0!). the #thinkdirtyapp scale is 0-10 with 0 being the best and 10 the worst. eye opening to say the least. some of the brands i scanned today definitely show their #greenwashing once you see their ratings. 😳 glad to see i am able to keep the 7th gen at the kitchen sink and i'll report back on the dr.b soap as a hand soap. . . . . . #handsoap #greenblogger #cleanblogger #naturalblogger #tween #naturalskincare #organicskincare #btweengreen

btweengreen Spent the morning @target playing with @thinkdirty for the first time. very eye opening. searching for a #clean #green #nontoxic hand soap for the family to use. through the years of parenting we have used the three shown in the 📸. for years i used method free & clear (rated a 7), tried the meyers (rated a 9!!) and for the last year been faithful to the 7th generation (rated a 4). the #thinkdirtyapp scale is 0-10 with 0 being the best and 10 the worst. eye opening to say the least. some of the brands i scanned today definitely show their #greenwashing once you see their ratings. 😳 #helpasistaout looking for something that rates lower than a 4. any suggestions? . . . . . . #handsoap #greenblogger #cleanblogger #naturalblogger #tween #naturalskincare #organicskincare #btweengreen
