I used to. Pretty much each of those sentences one after another. Hey, I like to grumble. Especially in the morning. Especially before I've had my morning coffee.
Well, my husband finally got sick of this. Well, actually, he probably hated coming home at lunch and seeing my latte cups from various coffee drive-throughs on the counter. He thinks mathematically (not sarcastically) and well- he probably tallied things up.
One day I came home from a business trip. (Yay Expo West!) And this beautiful beast was on the kitchen counter.
No longer do I need to wish that Starbucks delivered. I've got one of these sweet, sweet babies in my life. (Not to be confused with my real sweet babies.) But this one DOES make me espresso in the mornings. (Can't say that about my 3 year-old!) This baby is SUPER AUTOMATED. It's SUPER BADASS.
Gotta say, I was really lucky to attend Expo West 2014- where I was able to check out the newest and most innovative in the natural products industry. From chicken- that wasn't really chicken to eco-conscious beauty products- pretty much all aspects of green living had a booth (or 100 to represent it!)
While there I got to hang out with the crew from Lunette! As in, Lunette menstrual cup. What's that you ask? It's a reusable menstrual care alternative. Similar to a tampon- but way more eco-chic. Seriously. I too was skeptical at first, but now I am a hardcore Lunette fan. Actually, I am such a believer that I'm going to giveaway a Lunette menstrual cup!
Why the heck do you want to win a FREE Lunette Menstrual Cup?
*The Lunette won't dry you out like tampons.
*You can wear it for up to 12 hours. (That means you don't have to wake up early to change your menstrual care.)
*No wet strings.
*Wont give you diaper rash like pads.
*They're super cute.
*Will last for years- as long as you don't lose it...or flush it down the toilet.
My kid's are getting bigger. But not big enough that I can ditch a large bag. I like the idea of having a bag that's sturdy enough to carry around water bottles, iPads and snacks. I also want a bag that's going to be durable enough to withstand bags of moldy cheese that I forgot at the bottom with the leaky Nalgene bottle. Sorry sister. But this momma won't be toting a Louis Vuitton...at least not until my kids can lug around their own shit.
At first I thought these we're really ugly bags. Especially when all the college kids we're buying these back in the day to look cool for school. But now I like the option of styling my own messenger bag. Their website has several fabrics to choose from. So you can design yours to be a little less sporty- and more girly- if you choose. The size small would be perfect. Not too big, but big enough.
