Everyone Can Use Some Good JuJu for Body, Mind, and Soul (Review)


Disclosure: Thank you to Good JuJu for sponsoring this content. I received product and compensation in order to facilitate this review. All thoughts and opinions expressed below are my own. I am not a medical professional, and am only sharing my own experience with these products in the hopes that it may be beneficial to others. For more information, please refer to the disclosure that can be found at the bottom of this post.

We all know that no one's perfect. Physically or emotionally, we all have things that we deal with---whether it be occasionally, regularly, or even on a constant basis. Skin issues, anxiety, depression, headaches, migraines, and hypertension are just a few of the things that members of my family, including extended family, deal with. Finding ways to heal or cope with various challenges can be difficult, whatever they may be. Living your life with physical health problems, mental illness, or other difficulties such as chronic migraines.

Good JuJu Apothecary combines the knowledge of natural healthy living, Chinese medicine, and cosmetics to provide a line of seven treatment candle ointments and other healthy living products to help you feel your best. Available individually or as a lovely gift set, the Good JuJu range offers candle ointments for a variety of ailments to promote wellness of the body and mind, including: Aches & Pains (the Heart Chakra), Calming & Soothing (the Solar Plexus Chakra), Meditation & Anxiety (the Third Eye Chakra)Stress & Headaches (the Crown Chakra), PMS, Menopause & Hormone Balance (the Sacral Chakra), Coughs & Colds (the Throat Chakra), and Rashes & Hives (the Solar Plexus Chakra). They say your body is a temple, and Good JuJu Apothecary provides individuals with the tools to aid in the care of themselves. Products such as the Himalayan Salt Crystal Tea Light Candle Holder and the Pure Organic Unscented Beeswax Air Cleansing Candle offer the perfect compliment to any treatment candle ointment. Show a spouse, family member, friend, or other loved one to a thoughtful gift of good health with Good JuJu products for a holiday, special occasion, or just because! Mother's Day, Father's Day, anniversaries, and birthdays are just a few occasions that are perfect for some Good JuJu, with options including: the 3 Good JuJu Candles and 3 Healing Crystals Gift Set; the Love Her, Treat Her, Pamper Her Health Gift Set; and the ultimate 7 Good JuJu Candles and 7 Healing Crystals Gift Set.

Tried and true in our household, we've been enjoying all of our Good JuJu! My sister has been using the Stress & Headaches treatment candle ointment when she begins experiencing a migraine, and has been pleasantly surprised by the consistent results she has been noticing with use. I have been enjoying both the Calming & Soothing candle and the Meditation & Anxiety candle as the perfect way to relax and unwind at the end of a busy day with my two children. My mother has been experiencing hives as an allergic reaction since she was a child, and her outbreaks are some of the most severe I've seen. The last time she had hives after touching something a cockroach had touched (she's extremely allergic to roaches), she had big, splotchy clusters of hives all over her body for an entire month. I was thrilled to be able to give her the Rashes & Hives treatment candle ointment to be able to use during her next outbreak of hives. I've found ways to fill my household with Good JuJu and enjoy the benefits they have to offer. My husband's line of work is extremely physical and can leave him sore and worn out at the end of the day, and he has been enjoying sitting at the table with a newspaper at the end of the day with the Aches & Pains candle burning next to him. I haven't been able to help spreading the Good JuJu and giving these amazing treatment candle ointments to family and friends, too!

Annie's Three Cheese Mini Pizza Bagels with Pesto Marinara Dip (Recipe)



Toddlers can be the pickiest eaters. There are some foods they can eat over and over and over (and over and over and over) again without getting sick of them, and can even refuse to eat anything else. An experience that can be nothing short of maddening for parents. It can be tricky to find foods that they'll eat, and even trickier to find the time to prepare foods with your busy schedule as a parent.

Which is why I'm excited to be sharing a quick and easy meal for toddlers is perfect for lunch or as a snack any time of day. Children love for their food to be fun, and this simple yet delicious finger food gets even better with a dipping sauce... because what kid doesn't like having something to smother their food in?


Annie's Three Cheese Pizza Bagels
with Pesto Marinara Dip Recipe

Ingredients
- 1 box of Annie's Three Cheese Mini Pizza Bagels
- 1/2 cup marinara sauce
- 2 to 3 tbsp pesto sauce (adjusted to taste)
- 1/4 tsp parmesan for garnish (optional)

Directions
Heat marinara in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. When sauce begins to bubble, continue to cook while stirring constantly to heat the marinara evenly for one minute. Turn off the heat, but leave the sauce on the burner. Stir in the pesto. Adding after the marinara is heated will release the fragrant aroma of the pesto without overcooking it and ruining the flavor. Cook Annie's Three Cheese Bagel Bites following the instructions for your preferred method. Pour sauce into a small bowl or cup and place into the middle of a plate for serving and arrange pizza bagel bites around the bowl of dip. Garnish with cheese if desired. Serve and enjoy!

Little E is loving this delicious meal at lunchtime that I discovered at Sprouts. You can find the Annie's Mini Pizza Bagel Bites Three Cheese at Sprout's right now at a great price! Find more great options for wholesome meals at Sprouts. Check back regularly to find their Deals of the Month.

Copper's Very First Visit to a Grooming Salon: Groom Smart at #PetSmartGrooming




Disclosure: This post is sponsored by PetSmart® and the BlogPaws® Pet Influencer Network. I am being compensated for helping spread the word about PetSmart Grooming Salons, but we only shares information we feel is relevant to our readers. PetSmartis not responsible for the content of this article.

If there's one word I'd use to describe my typical day, it would be: hectic. Occasionally (who am I kidding?) "chaotic" would be a more suitable word. Just getting my two little ones out of the house in the morning is a task that in theory takes 20 minutes, but inevitably requires 2 hours of running back and forth doing this and that, and trying not to forget anything before we drive off. Most mornings, I'm lucky if I'm able to hop into the shower and shovel something or other that vaguely resembles food before hurrying off to run errands or make it to an appointment on time. What to speak of bathing our poor dog, Copper. But where to find the time?

Recently I've discovered that there is a wide range of grooming services offered by PetSmart®. You can customize packages and even add on additional services to cater to the needs of your dog... without breaking the bank! They even have a Bath & Brush Package for puppies! Nail trims and teeth cleaning are just the beginning when it comes to grooming options at the PetSmart Grooming Salon. PetSmart pet stylists can even do chalking, stenciling, feathering, jewels, and dog nail polish or nail stickers.

In anticipation of Copper's first experience with grooming services (ever!), I called the PetSmart Grooming Salon to set up an appointment. I was placed on a brief hold, and then was easily able to set up a time to take Copper in on my preferred day at a time that worked for us. Since it would be Copper's first time, I was kindly asked to bring in a copy of his vaccination record to verify that he was up to date on his rabies vaccine, and that was that! Easy as pie.

Although I was a little apprehensive because it was all new to us, I needn't have worried. Copper was right at home from the get-go, eating a biscuit while he was waiting for the groomer to be ready to take him to the back for his bath. Based off the recommendation from the groomer, we settled on a Dog Bath and Brush with FURminator® package, with the addition of nail trimming. I didn't know what to expect, but I was really interested in the package I decided on and was eager to see the results. Knowing that I was unfamiliar with the process, Copper's groomer was extremely nice and accommodating, and went out of her way to make it a fun experience for me, too!

Imagine my astonishment when she stepped out briefly during his bath to give me a visual example of how effective the bath with FURminator® is, and her hands were coated in his hair (picture below). While Copper was drying off so he could be brushed, the groomer came out during her break to talk to me about her experience at PetSmart as a groomer. It was great to hear that she enjoyed her job, and I was surprised by how many dogs each groomer may see each day during a busy period. I was very impressed by her general knowledge of dogs, and the more specialized knowledge she's gained working as a groomer. For example, I had no idea that the pet stylists at the PetSmart Grooming Salon are academy-trained.

When it was time for Copper to be brushed, he was such a pro! The groomer who had been working with him had the assistance of another excellent groomer. I declared the whole experience a great victory before he was even finish because Copper melted in their arms as they cooed at him and scratched him behind the ears. It was clear that they'd won him over, and that won me over, too! Call today or use the store locator online to book an appointment at a PetSmart Grooming Salon near you!

As you can see, Copper adored his groomer!

Didymos Size 5 Indio Ruby Red Woven Wrap Giveaway!

Whether you're no stranger to babywearing and toddlerwearing, or would like to try it out---you won't want to miss this amazing giveaway! This stunning woven wrap was picked up by The Pierogie Mama on her family's trip to Germany. You can see amazing photos from their trip by searching #GutenTagPierogie on Instagram! Read below for all the details and enter to win this beautiful wrap. Good luck!

Didymos is world renowned for their commitment to quality sourced materials and high ethical standards and bringing baby wearing to the Western World. Woven wraps have been historically the best way to carry babies and although they take a little bit of practice, they can quickly become just as easy to use as any other carrier. Started in 1972 by Erika Hoffman, a mother of twins, the heritage of Didymos runs deep with a great following. A Didymos Indio wrap, made from 100% organic cotton, is a crowd favorite and works well for babies through toddlers!

The Didymos Indio Ruby Red is a wrap that is sure the wow anyone who sees it! When The Pierogie Mama visited Didymos HQ in Ludwigsburg, this wrap stood out above the rest. Not only was the color so rich and deep, it also reminded her of her own Ruby...who just turned 2 years old! So in honor of her baby not being so much of a baby anymore, The Pierogie Mama is excited to send a little bit of her daughter's firey spunk to a lucky winner!  Yes, this very wrap hitchhiked with Bianca (in her carryon luggage, mind you!) all the way from Germany to Seattle.

Disclosure: This giveaway is hosted by The Pierogie Mama and participating blogs. Participating bloggers have not been compensated for this giveaway and are not responsible for prize fulfillment. If you have questions or are interested in having your brand featured, please Bianca at thepierogiemama@gmail.com
