Very interesting perspective Lisa.  I'm interested to see how this plays out.
Today's Baseless Internet Outrage of the Day is brought to you by people who don't realize lip balm made from organic and natural ingredients can cause allergic reactions because – new flash! – most allergies are caused by things found in nature. Hay fever anyone?

My microwave is (now was) a complete disaster. We don’t use it very often, but when we do everything seems to explode. And it’s generally not a mini explosion. I’m talking a big, powerful explosion that leaves sauce or grease everywhere. Over the years we’ve all tried to keep up. Each person is responsible for wiping out the microwave after warming or cooking something. That strategy worked for a while, but then the build up couldn’t be stopped.

The inside of the microwave started to look like a war zone. It got to the point where it was better to never open it so we wouldn’t have to look inside.

Vacation week wasn’t filled with as much skiing as we had hoped so we had to be creative with our time. My husband stumbled upon a CNET video, How to Clean Your Microwave With Just a Bowl of Vinegar. We watched the one minute video as a family, because we all knew that the microwave was just that bad. There were a few oohs and aahs (or maybe they were groans of boredom?) and I knew we had to give this a try.

It was so simple. Seriously simple.

Thanks Groovy Green Livin 4 sharing this simple eco green cleaning tip 4 the New Year! Bella's Eco Cleaning Tips: Add baking soda to vinegar for a ‪#‎greenclean‬ . Use a few drops of aromatic essential oils such as lemongrass or lemon juice (also a great disinfectant) to mask the vinegar scent a bit! 
Happy Green Cleaning!

Over the years I never gave much thought to mattresses. It was a place to rest our heads at night, with comfort being the prevailing factor. They were purchased on an as-needed basis.

And then I had a revelation. There’s so much more than comfort that needs to be taken into consideration when buying a new mattress for your bed. And it’s very confusing!

Genius! The Ruggie alarm clock floor mat on Kickstarter makes you sit or stand up to turn the alarm off, and it doesn't have a snooze button.
 
Such a simple yet genius idea.

I was first introduced to Beautycounter at Shiftcon two years ago. After trying out a few of their products I was intrigued. The Every Day AM Hydrating Cream was my first addiction. Over the past two years I’ve spent some time getting to know this company and the deeper I dig the more I like what I’m uncovering. I have a sneaking suspicion that we’ll be hearing a lot more about Beautycounter in the near future.

Beautycounter stands out from other beauty product companies. They are on a mission to get safe beauty products into the hands of everyone. They have taken the initiative to ban more than 1,500 ingredients from their own personal care products. Beautycounter is all about transparency (ingredients are fully disclosed in all products). Not only is this company selling personal care products, but they are also a social-mission company, providing safe products and working to change the broken system that allows harmful ingredients in the products we use every single day. +Beautycounter +Lindsay Dahl

Have you ever asked your children this simple question:

How can I help you feel loved?

The question was first raised in a Babble article, The One Question You Should Ask Your Child Tonight.

Although a simple question, it has the potential to unleash so many thoughts and emotions.

“Love isn’t just a word; it’s an action”

How do you think your kids will answer it?
