Faerie Organic Makeup


"U.S. researchers report that one in eight of the 82,000 ingredients used in personal care products are industrial chemicals, including carcinogens, pesticides, reproductive toxins, and hormone disruptors. Many products include plasticizers (chemicals that keep concrete soft), degreasers (used to get grime off auto parts), and surfactants (they reduce surface tension in water, like in paint and inks)." www.ewg.org


This alone has be searching for safer makeup.  Luckily there are more organic makeup options out there.  One company is www.faerieorganic.com.  


Their Handcrafted Skincare is made with organic extracts/herbs/oils and made without...
parabens
dimethicone/silicones
petrol products/mineral oil
synthetic perfumes/fragrance



All Faerie Organic products are produced in an artisan/handmade small batch process. Due to this process and lack of chemical preservatives our products do not carry the shelf life of mainstream products.


*I tried a sample of their powder foundation which had a clean sheer finish and their sample lipgloss was very natural and had a nice delicate scent.

Children's Supportive Shoe with Memory Foam

Check out how soft, stylish, and flexible these shoes are!



In Hawaii we are all in our bare feet a lot, but protecting little toes are essential.  My baby wore nothing but Pedipeds and I was disappointed when she got older and couldn't fit this style any more.  Pediped now has a Flex shoes with memory foam technology  that provides the best comfort and support for growing feet! Pediped’s complete footwear system can be found at www.pediped.com.
Flex <br> Violet - Bronze RS1790Flex <br> Piers - Chocolate Brown RS1763They have a section on Foot Health that I would recommend parents to read.  I learned a lot, like hand me down shoes are not the best for your child because shoes mold to the shape of the individual's feet.
I had the opportunity to try out the  Stella Pink Sparkle too see how comfortable and wearable they were.


  • All natural leather upper
  • All natural rubber sole
  • Comfortable ballet flat with rhinestone-studded faux buckle and Velcro strap for easy on and off
  • Features Memory Foam Technology™ in the sole for ultimate comfort
  • Features the Flex Fit System™, which allows children to adjust the fit of their shoes and prolong the length of wear
  • Approved by the American Podiatric Medical Association for promoting healthy foot development
  • Memory Foam Technology™ (MFT™) acts like a custom insole by shaping perfectly to your child’s foot and supporting it in all the right places. MFT™ also provides excellent absorption, prevents foot slippage in the shoe, and ensures a secure, comfortable fit.
    The Flex Fit System™ provides additional insoles that can be inserted for a snug fit then removed for room as your child's foot grows. These insoles can reduce shoe size by almost half a size, extending the life of the shoe.

The sparkly pink flower design is so cute but their memory foam really provides the best fit!  There is ample support and they can be used for dress or for running around.  

Follow Pediped on Facebook and Twitter to get the latest information on one of the best shoes for kids!
