Bath Time Fun with Boon


Hey Hey!

Happy Friday! I know it’s been awhile…I’ve been over here baking baby #2 (a BOY!)…working from home (or at least attempting to)…and running around after Everly like a crazy maniac. But I’m BACK!

Before diving into Boon and their great bath time products…I HAVE to tell you about an experience that happened to me a few weeks back with Everly in the bath. It’s serious.

E has these little bath toys that she loved playing with that had little holes in them so that they can squirt water out. I was always super diligent about making sure the water was completely out of the toys and that I put them up after bath time in a dry place.

Well. One night after she went to sleep I had this weird feeling that I needed to cut open one of these little rubber toys. You mamas know what I’m talking about. That mama instinct!

Can you believe I cut open one toy and covered inside was MOLD. Freaking MOLD. I was freaking. Out.

So, needless to say I threw all of these toys out right away and we took a break from toys for a while in the bath.

Well! This is where Boon comes in! About a month after this incident I was contacted to see if I’d be interested in trying out and reviewing some of their new bath time products. I’m a huge Boon fan and really enjoy using their other products and I trust and know how highly they take safety when creating their products so I agreed in giving them a try.


They sent over the Boon Soak 3 Stage Bathtub, RIPPLE Bathtub Mat, PIPES Building Bath Toy, COGS Water Gears, FLEET Stacking Boats, and the Frog Pod Bath Toy Scoop.

Even though Everly is currently out of the baby bathtub, I am really looking forward to using the Soak Bathtub with little man. You can adjust the bump in the center of the bathtub to create the best position for your babe and know that the baby won’t slip down during bath time (Everly would constantly slide around in her infant tub). It even has a color-changing drain plug so you know if the water is at a safe temperature!

Before receiving our Boon package, we were using a laundry basket in the bath to keep her safe and to prevent her from sliding around. After receiving the RIPPLE Bathtub Mat I took her out of the basket and gave this a try and I’m really happy I did.



She enjoys having the extra space now to move around the bathtub and I feel confident in letting her do so knowing that it’s textured and soft. Plus, the mat itself is really big! It covers the entire floor of the bathtub and even protects the drain a bit as well so she doesn’t mess with it during her bath. It also has a built in hook on the mat so you can hang it from your shower head to prevent mold and mildew!…which we all know I’m super happy about. :)


After my moldy toy experience…I’ll be honest, I was most skeptical about trying out the different bath toys. Everly’s favorite toys right now are the FLEET Stacking Boats. I love them because they are made with BPA free plastic and that have absolutely no hidden crevices or places where mold can hide! She loves moving them all over the tub.



She also enjoys watching Daddy organize and build different water mazes using the PIPES Water Toys that are suctioned onto the wall. They both like trying to figure out how to build the pipes in order for water to flow and hit the COGS Water Gears just right to send them spinning. It’s very entertaining. For the both of them!


When bath time is finally done, clean-up is a breeze using the Frog Pod Scoop. This little frog scoops up all of the bath toys and stores them safely on the wall. It has great built in air holes that allow any access water to drain away fighting mold and mildew from growing. Plus it looks super cute on the wall inside the bathtub. :)



If you’re looking for some new bath toys and gear for your little one, Boon does not disappoint. I love the modern styling that they give to all of their baby products. I personally feel like everything that they make is stylish and easy to use.

Hope you all have an amazing weekend!

I have some really exciting things coming up on the blog, so stay tuned and keep an eye out!

Discovering WaterWipes+ Babies “R” Us Giveaway!

This post was sponsored by WaterWipes as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central. I received complimentary products to facilitate my review.


Calling all mamas!

Have you heard of WaterWipes? It’s probably my new favorite baby item that I do not leave home without!

Everly is almost 11 months now, so we are deep in the throws of crawling all over the place, touching E.V.E.R.Y.T.H.I.N.G., playing “dropsies”, and eating people food like a Category 5 hurricane….PLUS to top it all off, she’s had a cold with a runny nose for the past week.

There’s been one thing that makes my life SO much easier. WaterWipes!


I’ll be honest, before discovering WaterWipes I was using her regular diaper wipes to wipe everything down with… her dropped sippy cup, her hands, her face…etc. I always felt really conscious about using the regular wipes because I know they have some ingredients in them that I more than likely wouldn’t be happy about knowing they potentially are getting ingested since she puts her hands in her mouth constantly.

WaterWipes are completely chemical free and only contain two ingredients: 99.9% pure Irish water and 0.1% grapefruit seed extract! They are truly my go-to for a safer, more natural option when it comes to wiping down my little lady.

After getting introduced to WaterWipes, Ever and I headed over to our local Babies “R” Us to stock up. They were fully stocked with different sizes of WaterWipes and very easy to find in the diaper and wipe aisle. Everly is a shopping pro…especially with puppy by her side! 😉 It didn’t take her long to think about the best wipe package to buy…


If you’re interested in purchasing WaterWipes, visit your local Babies “R” Us store. Don’t have a local store near you? No worries! Go HERE to see other locations where you can purchase WaterWipes.


I use WaterWipes for MANY different things:

  • Wiping down shopping cart handles
  • Wiping fallen toys + sippy cups after Everly drops them 1,343,233 times
  • Dirty hands + Faces
  • Diaper changes
  • Wiping counters before placing food on them
  • Her runny nose (SUPER soft on her sensitive skin!)
  • NEWEST USE: Makeup remover…yes…I was too lazy to wash my face the other night and these worked like a charm!



Our newest adventure has been introducing different foods into Everly’s diet. Her current favorite? Pasta and meatballs!…a girl after her mamas own foodie heart! <3

Pasta and meatballs are an epic mess with a 10 month old that is still trying to figure out how to perfectly place food inside of her mouth with her tiny fingers. Usually I just strip her down and run to the bath. But unfortunately the majority of restaurants do not offer this option. :) So WaterWipes it is!

Ever even tries to “help” by using a wipe for herself. Luckily…since WaterWipes are safe and chemical free, I don’t have to worry when she attempts to eat it while cleaning her face.



If you haven’t given WaterWipes a try, it’s so worth it! They are inexpensive and are so convenient for the average on the go mama. I HIGHLY recommend you try them out! and I’d love to hear what you think! So comment below :)

How I Protect & Repair my hair with Nexxus New York Salon Care

This post is sponsored by Nexxus New York Salon Care, a product of Unilever, as a part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central. 


I have an obsession with changing my hair color and trying out the newest trends. Currently at the moment, my hair is blonde…a few weeks ago it was grey and lavender.

If you’re anything like me and love hair change, we need to make sure to keep our hair well nourished and protected…especially when styling it with different heat products!

Luckily, I partnered up with Nexxus New York Salon Care and I think you’re really going to love the system & products I’m going to share with you!

Understand, I’m no hair pro and usually leave the styling to the professionals. But using these products has truly boosted my confidence and allowed me to manage and style my hair in a way that makes it feel & look “just left the salon” worthy!

Nexxus New York Salon Care provides a truly customized hair care system depending on what your locks are needing. I received the Therappe and Humectress System that is just perfect for my colored, bleached, and damaged hair.


Without further adieu, I’m going to walk you through my process of washing and styling my hair with the beach curls that you usually see in my photos using the new Nexxus New York Salon Care Therappe & Humectress System!

One of the first things that you will notice when you open and use any Nexxus New York Salon Care product is the smell. The scent is WONDERFUL and isn’t overpowering.


While in the shower, I shampoo and condition with the Nexxus New York Salon Care THERAPPE Rebalancing Shampoo & HUMECTRESS Restoring Conditioner. This shampoo and conditioner contain Elastin, Keratin, and Wheat Proteins that increase hair strength and manageability. The proteins literally penetrate your hair fibers to make it stronger and help prevent against breaking! Perfect for those of us who use bleach regularly on our hair!

I then use the HUMECTRESS Restoring Masque by scooping out about a quarter size dollop of the masque and spreading it mid-length through the ends of my hair. The container says to leave it on for 3-5 minutes, I always leave it on for 5 so the Caviar Complex Proteins really moisturize. Then rinse!


After stepping out of the shower, I grab my HUMECTRESS LUXE Lightweight Conditioning Mist and spray it throughout my towel dried hair and comb through! I love this product and it really helps assist in the manageability of my hair throughout the day without it feeling heavy and weighing me down.

Last, but not least, in this system is the HUMECTRESS Encapsulate! AKA what I lovingly like to call, magic in a bottle! I place about 6 pumps in my hand and finger it through my hair. This conditioning oil serum is encapsulated in pearls and helps rebuild broken hair bonds. It truly makes my hair so soft and manageable. And again, it doesn’t leave a heavy feeling or like it’s weighing me down!

Now, after going through the Therappe & Humectress System, it’s time to style! Before I blow dry, I place a dollop of the Nexxus New York Salon Care Mouse + Volumizing Foam throughout my hair. This helps to create more body in my hair and also assists in keeping my style fresh throughout the day.


I then blow dry, lightly straighten, and use my wand to create loose, effortless beach curls!

The perfect product to finish with is the Nexxus New York Salon Care Maxximum Finishing Mist. I lightly spray this over my entire head of waves to create a strong, yet incredibly lightweight hold. This product is a wonderful finishing spray in that it doesn’t leave hair “crunchy” but truly provides a touchable manageability to your hair and locks your finished style in place.




If you’re a mama like me and don’t have time to do this daily OR if you are trying not to wash your hair everyday…Nexxus New York Salon Care has an amazing Dry Shampoo Refreshing Mist that will freshen up your style in between washes! Score!

I really enjoyed partnering with Nexxus New York Salon Care for this post. Their products are amazing and I love how nourished my hair feels since using this system. They have a new lifelong customer. My goal is to always live a healthy lifestyle, so why not make sure my hair looks and feels healthy, too?
