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

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.
