Seventh Generation Natural Hand Wash in Mandarin Orange & Grapefruit scent from Smiley360 #SeventhGenHandWash

I received a bottle of Seventh Generation Natural Hand Wash in the Mandarin Orange and Grapefruit scent from I use many of the Seventh Generation products, including other hand washes and hadn't tried this one yet so I was happy that I was chosen to sample it. If you don't already know, Seventh Generation is a company with green products, including diapers, baby wipes, hand wash, laundry detergent, dish soap, toilet paper, disinfectant wipes, dishwasher detergent, fabric softener sheets and lots of cleaning sprays. They even have green beauty products and feminine care products. I currently use the hand wash, laundry detergent, diapers, baby wipes, dish soap and facial serum. One of the best things about the hand wash is that it is free of triclosan, dyes and synthetic fragrances. With that being said, let me tell you that this hand wash smells amazing! I love washing my hands with it and have a bottle in both bathrooms in my house and the kitchen. It leaves your hands feeling clean and soft and smelling nice. It's really cool b/c it actually washes bacteria away from your skin making it great for me to keep in my kitchen and use when I'm cooking and get meat juices and bloods on my hands and other bacteria as well. If you are interested in taking steps to live a greener life, then I would recommend Seventh Generation products to you. Everything that I've tried has worked just as well if not better than traditional products, but without all the unnecessary and harmful chemicals.

Build A Bear Experience from #BuildABearFriend

I was chosen by to go to Build a Bear workshop and build one of the new super hero bears with my son. We went to the Build a Bear this weekend and my son made his Batman bear. He was super excited to get to go. Turns out the Build a Bear that was 45 minutes away from our home closed down and we ended up having to drive over 3 hours to the next closest one, but it was worth it. My son had a great time building and customizing his bear and he is extremely happy with the end product. My youngest son threw my camera in a sink full of water the day that we got back and all my pictures of being in the store and making the bear were destroyed :(....I just got my new camera and have taken a few pictures of my oldest son enjoying his new bear. My youngest son is also loving the new Batman bear and follows my oldest around everywhere he takes the bear. Even my dog is in on the action and has to sit on or near the boys when they have the Batman bear out. We had a wonderful time in the store and if you've never taken your child, you should check it out. Your child gets to pick out every single component of the bear. First they choose the type of bear/animal they want. Then they are taken to the stuffing machine and an associate will help with stuffing the bear. There are lots of extras you can purchase including heart beat, sounds, songs, phrases and even fragrances! My son chose to put the heart beat in the Batman bear and also chose to get the Cotton Candy fragrance added. All the components are inserted into the bear, he's filled with stuffing and then the associate sews up the back of the bear. We then went over to the clothing section and man, there are so many options to choose from. I was glad this was a Batman bear so it was easier and quicker to pick out an outfit than when you have a generic bear or animal. My son of course chose the Batman mask, cape and body suit. We then went to the computer to register the bear and get his certificate printed out. We also named him at the computers. It's so cool all the customization you can do, which makes it a unique experience no matter how many times you do it. This is a great place for kids to visit and it's enjoyable for adults as well to get to see all the children in the store having such a great time and fun experience. Posted below are pictures of Batman bear on some of his adventures and the new super hero bears that are available now in store.
