New Homes For My Sling(s)

by Kristen Suzanne

Hi, everyone!

I selected a winner for the hemp sling that I offered in this post, but I was so moved with all of the comments that I want to offer my other ring sling to another person. Here are the responses of the recipients. Katie and Kelly, please email me your addresses so I can ship them to you.

Here is Katie’s comment (for the black hemp sling):

Hi Kristen,

I would love to win your ring sling. I have two boys, one is 22months and the other is 6 months. My 6 month old loves to be carried around on my hip. He is so content sitting on my hip and seeing what’s going on. It makes it hard for me to do everything one handed. I think a ring sling would be a perfect option for him. Also, it would be very helpful when getting my little ones out to the car. We live in an apartment so getting out to the car means dealing with stairs and a walk across the parking lot to our car. To have my hands free would be a big help!

Here is Kelly Groves’ comment (for my multi colored ring sling, cotton, not organic… I’m not sure if you want this, please let me know if you do)

Oh me please!!! I am expecting my second in October and so desperately want a ring sling. With my daughter I had a different sort of sling, but never felt secure with it. I really want a carrier that actually allows me to use both hands, since I have a three year old to tend to! And while we could probably scrimp and save to buy one, I will be losing my very modest income once this baby is born.

Giveaway: Hemp Ring Sling (black)

by Kristen Suzanne

As many of you know, it’s been an extremely tough week for me; hence, the massive lack of posting. Last Wednesday, Zeus took a turn for the worse with his hypercalcemia lymphoma and this past Monday I had to put him to sleep. It’s been so hard for our family… I’m going to have a dedicated post in honor of him soon, so I’ll save details for later.

As many of you know from my review of baby wearing devices, I have a lot of them. Amongst the stash is a black hemp ring sling that I never used. I never even tried it on because I had tried another ring sling and I couldn’t get it to work for me. However, ring slings are very popular! And, even though I could save this black one to try with our next baby, I don’t need two. So, I’m offering it to someone else. Ideally, I’d really love for my sling to find a home with a mommy or daddy who could really use one, especially in these tough economic times. I’d like to help a family out.

Could you use a cool ring sling to help you carry your wee one around? Post in the comment section below and let me know. I need to keep this giveaway to residents of the United States only please.

Giveaway! Sprout Wellness Award Winning All-Over Cream!

topics: Giveaway
by Kristen Suzanne

It’s giveaway time on Green Mommy Blog and I’m stoked to have the opportunity to offer you the chance to win one of my all-time favorite body creams – Sprout Wellness’ Award Winning All-Over Cream. (Thank you for sponsoring this, Sprout Wellness!) I’ll be selecting one winner (details on how to participate are below).

I wrote about my love of their products here – be sure to check it out! Ever since I first tried this product, I’ve been hooked. I have a jar in my bathroom (I share it with Kamea) and a jar on my desk. It’s divine!

And, here is some great information about the product from their website…

Ever had this experience before? “Man, my skin feels dry. I need some moisturizer.” {Apply moisturizer.} {One minute goes by.} “Man, my skin feels dry. I need some moisturizer.”

Ya, that’s not supposed to happen. Many moisturizers are made with water as a base, which evaporates quickly from the skin, leaving you as dry (or drier) than before! Sprout’s All-Over Cream isn’t, obviously. It’s designed to actually moisturize your skin, so you don’t have to keep using it every three minutes.

Our ingredients:

-wildcrafted, fair-trade shea butter
-organic extra-virgin coconut oil
-organic extra-virgin olive oil

What it does for you:

-natural SPF of 6
-anti-inflammatory
-high in anti-oxidants
-aids in skin cell regeneration
-promotes skin elasticity
-treats blemishes, skin discolorations, chapped lips, wrinkles, rashes, stretch marks, and sun spots

Want the chance to win? Simply answer the question below by commenting in this blog post’s comment section. Entries will be accepted until February 21st, 2011 at 11:59pm. I will randomly draw one name and announce the winner on Green Mommy Blog February 22nd by responding to the winner’s comment in the comment section below. *Please note: this giveaway is open to U.S. participants only.

Question: What things are you doing (or have done – or plan to do) to be a “green” mommy?

Green Mommy Blog Giveaway! Vitamin Code – Kids Formula

topics: Giveaway
by Kristen Suzanne

Exciting time! It’s Green Mommy Blog Giveaway time. Whoo hoo! This giveaway is sponsored by Garden of Life / Vitamin Code and they’re offering one of my lucky readers a bottle of their Kids Formula – chewable vitamins. I’m a big proponent of getting nutrition through fresh food but to ensure that all the nutrient needs are being met, a multi-vitamin can be a smart way to go. I have not used this product because I don’t have kids of the age that would take them. Also, for vegans out there, this product may, or may not be, considered vegan because of the vitamin D3. You can check out more info on it via their website for that and decide.

According to Vitamin Code, here are some details about their Kids Formula… Read More »

topics: Giveaway
by Kristen Suzanne

One of my favorite things to do is have giveaways on my other blog over at Kristen’s Raw (we do them a lot!). It seems only fitting that I carry on the tradition over here at Green Mommy Blog. To start us off – my first giveaway is from iHerb. This nifty online store, offering a number of environmentally friendly products, gave me a little shopping spree. Here are the cool things I picked out for myself (Dr. Bronner’s Soap in rose scent, organic cotton balls, vitamin B12, Spirulina tablets, Chlorella tablets, and Soap Nuts liquid soap). I haven’t tried the Soap Nuts liquid soap yet, but I love everything else.

Now, it can be your turn! One lucky winner will get a $50 shopping spree at iHerb to pick out $50 of merchandise of your choosing. All you have to do to participate is answer the following question (both parts!) in this post’s comment section. Entries will be accepted until March 13th at 11:59pm. I will randomly draw a name and announce the winner on Green Mommy Blog March 14th. *Please note: this giveaway is open to US and International participants, but if you live outside of the United States, you’ll be responsible for any customs fees that apply.

Question: What is your favorite eco-friendly product and why?

But wait! That’s not all! If you’d like to do some shopping there in the near future, iHerb is also extending a $5 off discount for your first order. If you make a purchase while you’re there, be sure to use the code BUY123 when you check out (again, only applies if this is your first order with them).

WAIT! I have one more thing to share! I have a lovely line up of Giveaways that I’ll be posting this month to celebrate the launch of Green Mommy Blog. Check back for details!
