When my tween daughter asked me to get deodorant for her, I freaked out a little. In my head I asked: Aren't you still a baby? And why are you asking me to get you something that I have never used in my life? (Yes, I'm very lucky to inherit good genes). The reality is that my baby girl is not a baby anymore. My protective mommy mode was in full swing and I started researching for products that don't contain harmful chemicals. Studies show that aluminum is linked to breast cancer and Alzheimer's and guess what, it's found in most regular deodorants. Yikes!
Most regular deodorants include artificial fragrances and are made to stop you from sweating. But all that does it block your pores and sweat glands from doing their job. Our bodies are supposed to sweat and get our toxins out. Luckily I found Primally Pure all natural deodorant that truly works. This charcoal deodorant does it all, powerfully protecting against odor while nourishing even the most sensitive skin.
Here are the benefits:
- Natural deodorant contains a small amount of baking soda (less than the original formula and a tad bit more than the sensitive formula) and is fortified with kaolin clay (powerful detoxifier) and non-nano zinc oxide (soothes irritation + combats odor).
- Contains other good-for-you organic ingredients including grass-fed tallow, fair trade coconut oil, arrowroot powder, beeswax and essential oils.
- Activated coconut charcoal contains added detoxifying benefits while also deodorizing and disinfecting.
- Goes on clear and doesn't stain clothes.
Primally Pure believes fewer is better and using only the most pure and powerful ingredients our planet has to offer. They believe in daily baths, taking time to establish a good-for-the-soul morning routine, spending time in the great outdoors and giving back and serving others. Above all, they believe that beauty goes much deeper than simply skincare - that true beauty is caring for oneself and others, while cherishing and nurturing the gift of life. And that's why I love supporting this amazing company!

Long weekends always sneak up on me specially after back to school and I always forget to make plans ahead of time. We'll be relaxing at home all weekend but in my mind we'll be at our imaginary lake house living up the last of summer. Feel free to bring wine and meet us there or mi casa.
Have a wonderful Labor Day Weekend! and thank you for stoping by!

Last week we got back from our amazing trip to Idaho where we spent ten days on beautiful Sun Valley. Today I am sharing a little about dining and the best huckleberry ice cream in town with you and for anyone who might want to visit at some point. This was our second year in Sun Valley and it's one of my favorite summer vacation with the kids. Everyone is still talking about our time there, and we can’t wait to go back again. Stay tuned for part II and III for activities, and places to visit. Have a wonderful weekend!
Since they were little I have loved dressing them in matching outfits. I was happy to find out that Carter’s has launched their KID line. Now available in sizes 4-14!
Here is the link for a coupon for your back to school shopping. Happy Friday!

My daughter actually made this cake. She used the vanilla cake mix from Trader Joe's with fresh strawberries. And toped it with powder sugar. It was delicious! I'm going to ask her to make it again for our Fourth of July backyard party.
As parents we forget sometimes to slow down and just simply enjoy the time with our kids. This summer we plan to slow down (no camps, no schedules, no hurry ups, or let's go..) and go on spontaneous day trips. Next stop is to Sun Valley Idaho! Make sure to follow us on IG @air_oro for more adventure fun.
