Make your momma proud

I majored in nutrition in college.
You knew that. 
Something I feel strongly about is that the closer you can get to natural, the better. As genetic modification goes up, nutrition goes down. Basically, mother nature knows what she's doing. 
Since having my cute little baby...

(c'mon, you knew there'd be a photo of her at some point in this post)
I've been more conscious about keeping other things natural as well, especially cleaning products. I don't consider myself a tree hugger, but I'm also not a cancer proponent. The chemicals just aren't good for us, yo! 

When Conscious Box contacted me about doing a giveaway I was really excited. I know a lot of my readers are fans of sustainability and just overall good health! This company is AWESOME. 

Conscious Box is dedicated to introducing you to the most ethical, sustainable, and honest businesses that create the purest products available. We scour the marketplace to find those that stand above the rest. Discovery defines the Conscious Box experience. source

How does it work? You subscribe on their website (month to month, three months at a time, and a year at a time options available) and receive a variety of the highest quality, pure products. They carry products varying from food to beauty and cleaning products. This allows you to branch out to try new things. Additionally, you receive discounts to purchase your favorites from the box. Mother's day gift, anyone? :) 

The winner will receive a one month subscription to Conscious box. You guys. You want this. Who says no to free food? Or free anything? I know I don't.

It's a great chance to try out an ethical company with a lot to offer. 

To enter, leave a comment with your e-mail and tell me something fun you plan to do this Summer. The giveaway will end Tuesday, May 14th and the winner will be announced the next day. You must respond to my e-mail within 48 hours. If not, another winner will be chosen. This giveaway is limited to U.S. residents and followers of this blog. 

To show your support, head on over to "like" their facebook page. You can also create a free account on their website. I would also encourage you to follow them on instagram at consciousbox. They post comparasins between their products and common products typically consumed like this one. I, for one, think they're pretty interesting. 

So get crackin' sister. Win yourself some free Conscious Box and make your momma proud!

Ohhhh, free stuff! I can not wait to take little Lando swimming in a pool and to a splash pad, I swear he is part sea creature, he loves being in water. Can't wait to see his reaction!

This summer I, once again, plan to kick cancers butt! I had thyroid cancer two yrs ago and it appears to be back.

This summer is a different one for me. I am no longer working outside the home and but will be prepping for our sweet baby to join us in November!

I am going to do something crazy at the end of this summer, like, oh I donno.... HAVE A BABY! It's going to be amazing. And hard. And I am going all-natural so obviously I'm into this kinda thing.

No way! I was just thinking the other day that I want clean, natural cleaning products but had no clue where to start. This is awesome!

I get to meet YOU (in real life)! Right?! Right!

And we are going to Disneyland!

What a great giveaway, Alexis!

This summer I am going on lots of hikes in the mountains where it is not so hot that it makes me cry.

Amber and Lincoln said...

Let's try this again!

Um, I want this like so bad! I just got my steam mop, it is awesome! Hot water and essential oils makes for one sweet smelling clean house. Anyways, this summer I am going to write a novel, or maybe just write on my blog. Or I might go to Utah for a family reunion, or I might not. I may just lounge in the pool all summer long and teach my kids to swim. My life is basically an adventure away from being awesome! And I have no idea what I'm doing.

Not all genetically modified plants are bad. There is a company right now that modifies plants to hold different nutrients than it did before so that people in countries with malnutrition due to not being able to have a diverse diet can still get all the nutrients they need in the staple crops that they can afford to grow and buy.

Not to sound rude, but a lot of people already freak out about genetically modified plants and when people make comments like that, it scares a lot of people.

Brody and I are planning a trip to the beach summer. I love learning about new healthy and natural products. Just visited their website and it seems awesome!
