A Better Way to Sleep Eco-Friendly Bed and Pillow Protectors

Mattress ProtectorBetter protection for you bed with no chemicals or pesticides. A healthy environment is important to all of us. While we may eat organic foods and watch the chemicals we put on our body we also have to think of our sleep environment. This includes everything from organic mattresses to the mattress protectors, comforters, and pillow protectors we use on our beds at night.   Investing in a a sustainably made, toxic-free mattress cover makes all the difference when it comes to sleeping comfortably and staying cool.   Sleep safer and keep those icky things that crawl on your mattress away from you at night.

The unpleasant truth is that mattresses, pillows and duvets harbor all kinds of yucky things.  Over time, traditional mattresses and other bedding items can become infested with millions of dust mites and living organisms that are the second highest cause of allergic reactions, after pollen.  Keetsa Protective Cases are a simple, easy way to protect yourself every night.  Micro-fiber fabric creates a barrier between you and the mattress, pillows and duvets, where the strands and weaving in this fabric are so tiny that dust mites and other micro organisms are unable to penetrate to live in your mattress and beddings. Keetsa cases help to bring safer sleep your way.   How to Order…

Pillow Protector

 

Pillow Protectors are also a good investment as your pillowcase doesn’t protect your pillow the way it should while you sleep.  A good pillow protector are made up of extremely soft fabric and are made to fit your pillow comfortably.

The Best Organic Citronella Bug Repellent

Greenerways 4-pc. Organic Citronella Bug Repellent Assortment

Greenerways 4-pc. Organic Citronella Bug Repellent Assortment

If you are like me you care about using chemicals around the kids, grandkids and pets. That’s why I like the Greenerways Citronella Bug Repellent. This stuff works really well, just spray it on your arms, legs, ankles and arms in the morning or when you are going in your garden or when the mosquitoes are at their worst.  You won’t get bit at all and it smells really good like Citronella and lemon.

While you have to try this for yourself as there are some people who swear that the only thing they can use it the sprays with DEET in it because they are mosquito magnets. Plus you have to like the smell which is pleasant to some while others don’t like it.  I prefer not to have all the chemicals on me that is why I prefer organic products.

The reason I like the organic products that work so much is that while my dad who lost his battle with cancer worked around a lot of chemicals and it seemed when he switched to organic products and less chemicals around him he extended his time here with us longer than the doctors told us.

I don’t like a lot of chemicals around especially since I am sensitive to everything. The Citronella Bug Repellants is one of those things you just need if you want to keep the bad stuff away. The smell is strong but is will keep the bugs aways but you should wash it off once you come inside especially if you get it on your clothing.

Greenerways Citronella Bug Repellent is inexpensive and does work for most people.  I would suggest reading reviews and trying it for yourself.  With all of the warnings of the Zika Virus and other potential threats from mosquitoes it’s best to keep them away with the safest means possible.

You can purchase the Greenerways Citronella Bug Repellent online here, read current reviews and get more information.

Best Travel Car Seat for Parents and Grandparents

IMMI Go Hybrid Uber Car Seat Booster 2016
IMMI Go Hybrid Uber Car Seat Booster 2016

As a grandparent I am always pulling the car seat from my grandkids parents cars and putting them in my car to take them somewhere such as school, the park, or a play date. It’s not always convenient to keep a car seat in my car so the best solution we found was the Go Hybrid Uber Car Seat Booster.

The seat is lightweight and comes folded with its very own travel bag!

It’s works well because it’s easy to carry and install especially for taxis, grandma and grandpa’s car, babysitters, Ubers, take with you when you travel on an airplane (cannot be used on the plane but can be folded and stored)  and use in the rental car when you land, plus more.  It also is an easy seat to use for carpools, moving a kid back and forth between cars and using if you have multiple vehicles or a kid that has to go between parents cars.   Where to Purchase the Car Seat Booster

IMMI Go Hybrid Car Seat Booster 2016IMMI Go Hybrid Car Seat Booster 2016

Here’s what you need to know about the IMMI GO:

  • Thanks to an innovative soft back, the IMMI GO weighs only 10 pounds, and can fold up into a travel bag that can easily ride in your car trunk (or the overhead compartment on a plane).
  • The IMMI GO installs in less than two minutes, using LATCH and the top tether.
  • The IMMI GO converts from a forward-facing car seat with a five-point harness to a backless belt-positioning booster.
  • Kids can start using it at age 1 (although we recommend rear-facing seats for this age), and it can be used up to 100 lbs.
  • Because of the lightweight and quick install, the IMMI GO is used by Uber for their Uber Car Seat service!

Beautiful Ways to Decorate a Daybed in a Room

Daybed Bedding Sets

Daybeds are great for small rooms or extra place to sit and relax.  You can easily use them as a furniture piece in any room or add them to a bedroom for a place to sleep.  We have a daybed in one of our small bedrooms and it makes a comfortable bed to use for guests and the grandkids when they sleep over.  When the bed is not in use I like to decorate it with comfortable and creative ways to make the room look cozy.  Charlton Home Daybed with Trundle

Daybed bedding sets are an easy way to change up a room and make it look any way you want. From casual to elegant, floral and even make it for a little boy or little girl to enjoy.  There are so many neutral and bright colors available for daybeds it’s easy to change the way a room looks with your bedroom.  I have to admit that we are in need of a change for our daybed and I am loving some of these new styles and colors.  One of my favorites is the Eddie Bauer Daybed Set because of the gray stripe design. It’s 100% cotton and the set features One quilt (75″ x 39″), two quilted shams (26″ x 20″), one standard sham (26″ x 20″) and one bedskirt (75″ x 39″).  It matches a room with most colors including dark or light colors in a room.  I like the Eddie Bauer set  to match with the color in a room that are painted in shades of pink, white, Navy, blue or green.

The floral patterns are pretty to match a room for a spring or summer look or maybe even a little girl’s bedroom. The Dorthea Daybed Set is filled with Azalea pinks mix with daffodil yellow and sage greens in the Dorothea cottage garden floral print by Laura Ashley.  While the Teen Vogue Pop Vintage Daybed set has bright and bold colors features an orange background with purple floral blooms.

There are also many solid daybed sets available as well as checks, stripes and colorful patterns.  It’s easy and inexpensive to redecorate a room when you select a bedding set especially when some of these sets are under $100 and include shipping on some. There is a great selection of solid daybed bedding sets, floral daybed bedding sets, tropical daybed bedding sets and more. All of the  daybed sets include 5 pieces, perfect for dressing up your daybed.
