Sunday Surf: Natural Living, Toxic Nail Polish, Birth Stories & Giveaways

by Charise Rohm Nulsen

Happy Sunday! I hope you all are having a great weekend.

I participated in the Carnival of Natural Parenting this past week. The theme was experiments in natural family living, and I loved so many of these posts. A couple of my favorites are:

- My Natural Beauty Regimen by African Babies Don’t Cry (includes recipes for homemade toothpaste, cleanser, moisturizer, and microdermabrasion scrub).

- Nope Nada Ixnay Negative Pass Decline by TouchstoneZ (Zoie tried saying YES to anything asked of her for 10 days!)

If you’re looking for some green info on a topic that many people wonder about:
How Toxic Is Your Nail Polish Really?

And since I’m now something like 24 weeks pregnant, I’m collecting birth stories that I love as inspiration each week. Here’s one that I adore: Fresh Out of Batteries by A Day Without Sushi

Also, I have two fun giveaways open and waiting for your entries:
Book Giveaway: “Salad People” – Healthy recipes to make with your toddler or preschooler {2/1; U.S. only}

Birthing from Within: A Childbirth Preparation Book Recommendation Plus a Giveaway! {2/10; U.S. & CAN} – For the pregnant mamas!

My little guy couldn’t stay away from my old nail polish. It’s been so long since I’ve worn it, I couldn’t believe how toxic it smelled. I bought him some Piggy Paint nontoxic nail polish and I feel much better about him using that.
