Eco / Green Easter Egg Options

Last year I wrote a post on How to Green Your Easter and this year I decided to write about eco Easter egg options. There are so many different things you can do for Easter eggs to make them eco and green. Whether you want them for the kids or to have them out for decoration. There are so many eco Easter basket ideas that I have seen at Whole Foods. Here is a round up of some of my favorite options starting from the top left going right.

EMC on Jewish Latin Princess Blog Today

If you get a chance, go check out Jewish Latin Princess today where I did a small laundry room organization project. I absolutely loved working with Yael and her client!! While you are there peruse her site and blog for all things about the Jewish culture with a latin flair, interior design, event styling, along with many other great musings.

*don't mind my super messy hair! I obviously should have ran a brush through it.

Made in the USA: Glassybaby Candle Holders

I hope I finally figured out the font issue on the blog, but for some reason it won't let me go back and change it and I don't want to put the time in to figure out what is going on. I feel like I am always saying on the blog "I have loved this product a long time" or "I have been a long time fan", but most of the products I put on here I have used and liked them a long time. I try to find content to write about from things I've used on regular basis. With that said....

I have loved Glassybaby for many years. They have beautiful candle holders. They are handblown and made in the USA. Plus, depending on which ones you buy proceeds will go back to a charity. I have several throughout my home and have given them as gifts throughout the years.

Kids Yoga Books

A thing that little know about me is that I am a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT). I really want to teach baby and kids yoga on a more regular basis. In Houston this is a thing that is becoming more prominent in the schools. Here are some of my favorite kids yoga books.

Kids love anything that is fun. These are some fun kids books:

I grew up with Babar books and was happy to see Babar's Yoga for Elephants. I think it is such fun kids yoga book.

My mom actually gave me this Cat Yoga book as a joke, but I love it for kids yoga because it is funny to see animals doing yoga and it makes kids laugh. 

What are some of your favorite baby and kids yoga books?
