Ava’s Bedroom Redecorated


Im sure everyone has seen the wall art that comes in tubes that you just stick on the wall to create a masterpiece in minutes.  Have you ever wondered if it’s really that easy and if it will actually look good on your walls?  Well, I found an awesome Etsy shop that has various options to create a small scene or a very large scene on your walls and I was very impressed.  I did this a few years ago before my first daughter was born.  I had an obsession with Circles so I purchesed the “Confetti Wall Graffic Set” from Michelle & Christina Art & Design on Etsy for $68.  I received 84 decals and I was able to choose up to 6 colors.  This is my creation:

 

So, my sweet little daughter decided she doesnt like the circles anymore and “Mommy, please take them off” so she could go to sleep in her own room.  Completely different story but she decided she wouldnt sleep in her own room after baby #2 arrived.  Now that we are slowly making the transition back into her room, she is redecorating.  I bought the new stickers from Kohls and they came in a tube with enought stickers to create a tree design over an area above my daughter’s queen size bed.  I didnt measure but it would make a nice centerpiece in a giant headboard if she had one.   I got these on sale for $9 on clearance but I believe designs around this size run between $20 and $30.  Here is the new design:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I do love Michelle & Christina’s unique designs and would highly recommend that you check their etsy store before settling for the generic patterns that are sold in almost every super store.  I was not solicited to write this article and was not compensated in any way.  I merely wanted to display the changes I made to my daughter’s room.  We kept the circles over the rocking chair where the new baby’s crib now resides and over the doorway 🙂

Make your own Washing Detergent!


My friend shared this recipe on her blog Through Hazel Eyes and I think she is a genius.  She also has handy tips for repurposing an oxyclean container to store small amounts of your new detergent.  All you need is 4 ingredients, a garbage bag, and some large container such as a garbage pail or 5 gallon bucket.  I cant wait to make this.  My husband thinks Im absolutely nuts but I am all about saving on expensive detergents especially if I can make my own for less than $17 a year.  Check it out by clicking the link above.

CDC researchers say mothers should stop breastfeeding to boost \’efficacy\’ of vaccines


This is absolutely ludacris! I am enraged of course to hear that withholding breastmilk (a natural immune system booster) is recommended in order for the rotovirus vaccine to be effective.  How about the fact that we dont know rotovirus vaccines are effective in the first place and secondly that withholding breastmilk and substituting with formula would substantially interfere with breastfeeding long term if the parent was choosing that route.  How dare they insist on formula feeding to insure a vaccine be effective when breastfeeding would more than likely protect the child better than the vaccine.

Health insurance company preys upon the poor with junk food reward program for vaccinating your baby


I dont pretend to know everything there is about vaccines and I have vaccinated my older daughter but the more I learn the more I regret doing so.  Luckily my daughter is healthy despite her vaccinations.  This article is enlightening in the way that our society promotes unhealthy choices such as rewarding parents/children to do something they might not do (vaccinating) if they had more information about the effects they actually have on people and coupling that choice with unhealthy foods.  I dont care if McDonalds has healthy choices now, if you look closely their salads have more sugar than some desserts.  Happy reading! I found it interesting.

Study: Unvaccinated children far less prone to allergies and disease than vaccinated children


Im pretty new to this information about vaccinating vs. unvaccinating.  I was vaccinated as a child and raised to believe that it was necessary.  Now that Ive had the opportunity to learn more about vaccinations and the harm they potentially cause I would like to share this information with everyone.

Avoiding the Flu…without the vaccine


5 Simple Ways to Prepare Yourself
For Flu Season, and the Flu Shot is Not One of Them!

Flu Season Is Almost Here!

http://www.facebook.com/pulverfamilychiropractic

 

Now that I’ve seen the flu shot bilboards going up around town, I thought it was necessary to share with you a few simple ways to help prevent colds/flu. While some people may still get a virus, if you follow these rules, you should recover in just a few short days.
Tip #1 – Avoid sugar. There is nothing that will weaken your immune system more than sugar. Ever notice how flu season really picks up after Halloween. and starts to calm down after New Year’s?
Tip #2 – Get regular exercise. Not only do people who exercise tend to have healthier diets, but regular exercise has been shown to strengthen the immune system.
Tip #3 – Get enough sleep. Failing to get enough shut-eye will wear you down, and leave you an easy target.
Tip #4 – Eat right. Cut out processed foods, fast foods, and sugar. Eating a diet high in lean protein, fruits, and veggies will support every function in your body (not to mention improve yoru overall health).
Tip #5 – Get enough Vitamin D. We live in an area where we need to supplement this essential vitamin. While individual needs vary, most adults should take at least 6-10,000 IU’s daily. Sound like a lot of pills? The one we use is 2000 IU/drop!

and, as a bonus:
Tip #6 – Get regular chiropractic care. Chiropractic adjustments have been proven to boost your immune system as much as 200%!
