Mommy and Daughter First Mani-Pedi with Piggy Paint & SOPHi Nail Polish!


I received these products at no cost to facilitate this review. All opinions are my own.

Ever paint your nails and get a terrible headache afterwards? I know I have and to make matters worse, the nail polish smell can hover in your house for quite a while too. I’m always having to turn on the bathroom fan, or open a window in our home to get rid of the smell. Another upsetting fact is that when I take off my old nail polish, my nails look yellow! Eww!… yet another indication that these products are filled with nasty, harsh chemicals that aren’t safe for me, or my child. And now that I am pregnant, and my daughter is wanting to paint her nails, I needed to come up with a safer solution for the both of us! Or maybe I should say, the three of us! Welcome to our lives, Piggy Paint and SOPHi! We love you already!



Piggy Paint was founded in 2008 by Melanie Hurley, a mom of two daughters who loved having their nails painted, but the chemicals and strong smell made her look for a safer alternative. In fact, the turning point happened one day while they were painting their nails over a foam plate. One of her daughters dropped a glob of her solvent-based polish onto the plate and the paint began to bubble and actually “ate” through the plate! (Click here to see the plate). Thanks to this scary scenario, Piggy Paint was born!



SOPHi by Piggy Paint is the “adult” version and allows health-conscious women to have a worry-free manicure and pedicure. They offer an advanced water-based formula that is also virtually odorless (just like Piggy Paint), as well as cruelty-free, and vegan. I absolutely love how it contains no harsh chemicals, is non-toxic and made in the USA!

Thanks to this awesome company, my daughter and I are going to have our first mani-pedi together! She’s never had her nails painted and has been asking me for a loooooong time to do so. I just didn’t want to put harsh chemicals on her tiny little growing hands (or feet) and was looking for a safer alternative. Thanks to Piggy Paint, I am ready to fulfill her nail painting dreams! I’ve also been off nail polish for a long time now, as I haven’t painted my nails once since becoming pregnant. After having two miscarriages, I became extra cautious about everything I put in and on my body. Thanks to SOPHi, I finally feel comfortable painting my nails.



My daughter loved all the variety of colors Piggy Paint has to offer! Some of the polishes have glitter and others are even scented! Of course, my daughter LOVES glitter and she had to give those a try too! With so many choices, your kids will flip for the variety!

I love all the beautiful shades that SOPHi offers women. The colors are feminine, vibrant, and elegant as well. You will certainly find a shade that compliments your skin tone and season to perfection. I know I couldn’t choose just one!



My little sweetpea couldn’t wait to get started and wanted to paint my nails right away! I picked out SOPHi’s “Morning Kisses” as it’s a pretty, light shade of pink and seemed like a fun neutral summer color. She had a blast being a “big girl” and painting mommy’s nails. After she was done, I did have to do a little touch up with a second coat and used the Piggy Paint Nail Polish Remover to tidy things up. Did you know that they also have a California version that has also passed their stringent testing? So awesome! That’s the one I used and it neatened up my nails like a charm!



She was having such a blast painting my fingernails that she wanted to go right to my toes for some more painting fun! I picked out SOPHi’s “#NoFilter” nail polish as it’s a bright shade of pink with a little bit of a berry look to it. It looked complimentary to my manicure that was just done and seemed like the perfect color for these end of summer days. My daughter had so much fun and felt like such a big girl painting my nails, but now that she was done painting my nails she could hardly contain herself… it was her turn!



She picked out a fun pinkish, mauve color called “Glamour Girl” for her toes from the Piggy Paint line. It has glitter and is oh-so-sparkly! Which is right up my daughter’s alley, that’s for sure! She was smiling from ear to ear as I painted her toes and was fascinated by the whole experience.



Then she picked out the “Radioactive” nail polish for her fingers nails. She was absolutely amazed that this nail polish would glow-in-the-dark! She couldn’t wait to test it out and see if it worked. It comes out as a nice clear coat with just a hint of a whitish/yellow pigment. This is nice as it’s a discrete color and if you aren’t into having your children’s nails painted, this is a nice compromise. Plus, since it glows in the dark, how can you go wrong?!



And the “Radioactive” nail polish worked great!! It wasn’t only her nails that were glowing… she was beaming with excitement!



My daughter and I had so much fun spending this girly time together. She has been wanting to paint her nails for so long, I knew I had to look for a safe alternative for her, myself, and this precious baby I am carrying. Thanks to Piggy Paint and SOPHi, I found it! Non-toxic, virtually odorless, and chemical free… you sold me! Definitely give them a try the next time you are looking to paint your nails. You will be happy you did!

Ten Natural Remedies for Sinus Congestion And Pain


This is a Guest Post. I only share with my readers information that I find fun, informative, or important. Enjoy!

Many people have experienced sinus pressure and pain in their lives and most people also
recover from it without making use of prescribed medications. Whether your symptoms are due
to sinus infection, allergies or the common cold, there are many natural remedies that can offer
relief. If you want to do some research before you buy natural sinus relief supplements, click
here for real customer reviews.

What Are Sinuses?
The sinuses produce mucus which often drains into the nose. If there is inflammation in this
area, the sinuses can be blocked and can then cause facial pain, tooth pain, a cough, post-
nasal drip or congestion. Sinusitis can either be acute or it can be chronic, lasting for months or
even years. Acute and chronic sinusitis can be caused by cystic fibrosis, nasal problems or
allergies.

The following remedies can be tried in order to break the sinus cycle and to offer sinus pain
relief:

Flush The Nasal Passages
Even though there is a lot of debate about what sinus remedies work and what don’t, everyone
agree that saline washes and sprays work. Saline washes or sprays thins mucus and helps to
flush it out of the nasal passages. These solutions can be used daily in order to keep the
sinuses moist.

Bromelain
Bromelain is a protein that is found in pineapple stems. It is sold as a supplement and is used to
reduce swelling. It, therefore, helps to reduce any swelling in the nasal passages as well. It may
interact with other medications, so make sure to speak to your doctor before you start using it.

Steam Up
The vapor of hot water can help to moisten the sinuses. You can steam up your bathroom after
a few drops of menthol or eucalyptus has been sprinkled in the shower. A steamy, hot bath or
shower can also help loosen up debris and mucus that are stuck inside the nose.

Stay Hydrated
Your sinuses will remain moist when you’re getting enough fluids. Try to drink a lot of water
throughout the day and stay away from alcoholic or caffeinated drinks which might cause
dehydration. Drink at least 8 glasses of water per day and check the color of your urine to make
sure whether you are hydrated or not. You can use these few tips to stay hydrated.

Eat Spicy Food
Try spicing up your meals by including foods such as wasabi, horseradish, curry, hot peppers
and mustard to your diet may help to clear the sinuses. Consider adding a few “hot” flavors to
your diet in order to open your nasal passages.

Curb Allergies
You can control your home environment by keeping pets out of the bedroom, using allergen-
barrier bedding, installing an air filter and getting rid of dust mites. Read more about how to
control seasonal allergies.

Make Use Of A Humidifier
Even though a humidifier can keep the air moist, you should pay special attention to keeping it
clean as dirty humidifiers can breed mold. Only make use of it during dry months and keep the
humidity level at around 35-50% for ideal conditions.

Apply Warm Compresses
Applying a warm compress will help to keep the nasal tissues moist. If you follow a warm
compress with a cold compress it might even relieve sinus pain.

Don’t Use Antibiotics Immediately
If you are using antibiotics too often it can lead to antibiotic resistance and it might not even be
effective in treating most of the cases of sinusitis as less than three percent of these infections
are bacterial. As most sinus infections are viral they should be treated without antibiotics. Wait
for at least seven days to see whether the symptoms do not improve on its own.

Go To The Doctor
If you experience that nothing seems to relieve your sinus-related symptoms and if the
symptoms do not improve with over the counter medicines, you can ask your doctor to perform
a CT scan of the sinuses and nose in order to look for any anatomical blockages such as nasal
polyps or a deviated nasal septum. If you have a fever and if your sinus pain lasts for more than
a week, you should see a specialist as you might need more aggressive treatment.

$50 MAM Prize Pack Giveaway!

Enter for your chance to win this wonderful $50 prize pack from MAM! Good luck everyone!

September is #NationalBabySafetyMonth. As parents, nothing is more important to us than the safety of our MAM babies. In conjunction with our friends at top baby registry site @Guguguru, we are posting safety tips throughout #JPMABabySafetyMonth to help raise awareness of key things we can all do to protect our babies.

  • Focus on Safety: This #BabySafetyMonth, the JPMA is teaching parents and caregivers to properly select and use all juvenile products, the importance of child supervision, following manufacturers' instructions and warning labels, inspection during product use, and monitoring children's growth and development. Visitwww.babysafetymonth.org to learn more about properly choosing and using baby products and creating the safest environment for your child!
  • Always place baby to sleep on their backs. A recent study by the @AmericanAcademyofPediatrics shows that about 2 in 10 babies are placed to sleep in incorrect positions that greatly increase the risk of SIDS.
Babies should *always* be placed to sleep on their backs. Placing babies to sleep on their sides is just as dangerous as placing babies to sleep on their stomachs, since they are likely to roll over on to their stomachs while sleeping.

  • Consider pacifier usage when placing baby down for sleep and remember that the pacifier may not be reinserted once baby falls asleep. Pacifier use is shown to reduce the risk of SIDS. MAM supports the AAP published guidelines for pacifier usage. Check them out here: http://bit.ly/AAPInfantSleepSafetyRead more here if you’re interested in more information about pacifiers and how they reduce the risk of SIDS: http://pediatrics.aappublications.org/content/116/5/1245
  • Before placing a pacifier in baby’s mouth, check to see if there is any damage or signs of weakness. Pull the nipple in all directions and throw away the pacifier at the first sign of damage or weakness. Pay extra attention to your child’s pacifier as teeth emerge, which can occur as early as 1 month. Be sure to replace your baby’s pacifier frequently – once a month or every two months.Learn more here
  • Safe Sleep Guidelines. Many parents and caregivers are unaware of the AAP’s recommended Safe Sleep Guidelines and unknowingly put their babies at risk. It’s crucially important to make sure anyone who cares for your baby is aware of Safe Sleep Guidelines. @LovetoDreamUSA’s Safe Sleep Guide offers helpful tips to help ensure the safest sleep situation for your baby at all times.Visit https://lovetodream.com/sleep-center/safe-sleep-support-practical-advice-for-new-parents-/ to see more on safe sleep.
  • Make sure baby’s arms and legs are safe in the crib from any risk of being stuck, and even injured in their crib slats. Our friends @breathablebaby offer thoughtfully designed crib liners made of lightweight breathe-through polyester mesh to help keep little limbs inside of the crib without the risk of restricted airflow.
    For more information on this safer alternative to crib bumpers visit www.breathablebaby.com.
  • Keep an extra eye on baby with a monitor and just like anything else you place in your baby’s bedroom, you need to be careful about where and how you use a baby monitor. Place any cords at least 3 feet away from any part of a crib, bassinet, play yard or other safe sleep environment and never position a monitor inside or on the edge of a crib. Our friends @myevoz make wireless video baby monitors that securely connect to iOS and Android devices and allow for you to watch your child virtually from anywhere. The Evoz smart monitors offer patented cry alert technology and allow for data tracking and record keeping as well.
    For more information visit www.myevoz.com.
  • For stress-free adventures with baby choose a stroller that has a base wide enough to prevent tipping, even when your baby leans over the side. Always secure baby using straps and use the basket underneath. Don’t hang purses or shopping bags over the handles as it may cause the stroller to tip. @deltachildren offers safe, stylish and lightweight stroller choices ideal for parents on-the-go.
    For more information visit www.deltachildren.com.
  • Ensure that your baby’s crib meets CPSC standards and that everything in your nursery is free of harmful chemicals and toxins. Check that the crib of your choice is not on the CPSC recall list, here: CPSC Recall List Just as important is ensuring that your baby’s crib is placed away from (1) windows, where drafts and sunlight can put your baby at risk, and (2) drapes/blinds, which are strangulation hazards.
    Our friends at @Micuna_Usa offer a collection of safe, stylish cribs made of sustainable materials like solid Beech Wood.
    Check out their wide variety of cribs here: http://www.micunausa.com/shop-products/.
  • Choose a playard with the correct recommended height and weight of the child. The playard, including side rails, should be fully erected prior to use. Always follow the manufacturers’ instructions and follow these guidelines for safe use of a playard: https://babysafetyzone.org/safety-tips-bassinets-play-yards-toddler-beds-and-more.
    @4moms_hq offers parents a quick, easy, and safe space for their baby to play or sleep wherever they go with their breeze GO playard. The breeze GO meets all relevant playpen safety standards and is intended for playing or sleeping.
    Check out more on the breeze GO and other 4moms products here: www.4moms.com.
  • MAM pacifiers come in four sizes: newborn, 0-6, 6+ and 16+.
    Each size was developed with pediatric dentists and developmental psychologists to provide your baby with the ideal pacifier at each age and stage.
    These sizes are recommendations for your baby’s maximum comfort and safety; if your baby likes a MAM pacifier that is not the ideal size for his or her age, not to worry! It is still safe to use as long as all other safety guidelines are followed: http://bit.ly/mampacifiersafety .
