Homemade Kid Safe Bath Bombs For Valentine’s Day

Best Healthy Life, Fun With Kids, Mom Life

Heart eyes day is approaching and my kids are OBSESSED with these fun little fizzy things that you toss in the tub. I am sure you might be familiar with them too as it seems they are the most technologically advanced entertaining thing in existence–hah! Ok, ok, you guessed it, it’s a bath bomb. Trouble I found is they are far too expensive for thirty seconds of said entertainment. Most of them are questionable on the safety side for kids too. I have three little kiddos, so both of those factors are pretty important. I bought ingredients in bulk for a fifth of what it would cost to purchase the same bath bombs in a store. We worked hard to perfect an easy homemade bath bomb recipe for Valentine’s that is kid safe and of course, super fizzy.

Our Healthy Lifestyle Transformation Family Progress

Best Healthy Life, Fave Finds, Food, Fun With Kids, Mom Life

We are just about two months into this healthy lifestyle transformation. Boy is it a process, but anything good takes a little work right?! You can read about the full story of why we started this journey here, but in a nutshell, it was just flat out needed. I felt blah, I turned to fast food more often than I care to admit and was just overwhelmed with not taking better of myself. This of course overflowed onto my family and something had to be done. I didn’t want to start a fad diet just to revert or go half in, so I went ALL in. We are talking food, beauty, clothing and home products. I know you’re probably thinking that’s overkill, but initially I started with food and thought, “what’s the point of eating better if other things I use are yuck?!” So, here’s a little update of where we are at and a few favorites I’ve found so far along the way.

Be prepared to be mesmerized by an incredible sight of some superheroes and their sidekicks you may be familiar with–Spider-man, Hulk, Captain America, Iron Man, Groot. You’ve heard of those, right? I thought so! Without giving away any of the plot that you need to see for yourself, I wanted to share a few of my favorite moments. If you’re in Tampa, you can still catch a few shows this weekend or head to Feld Entertainment to find a show coming near you soon.

Best Chunky Guacamole Recipe

Best Healthy Life, Food

If ever there were something that I could eat for breakfast, lunch and dinner AND it would be deemed acceptable, it’s this recipe right here–chunky guacamole. It breaks the mold of a traditional guacamole to add a little oomph in it’s appearance and taste. Because it is so light and refreshing, I wasn’t joking about the eating all day part–you’ll see why when you make it. My kids love it, it disappears at parties and makes your tummy thank you.
