It's so important for women to share with other women, our daughters, sisters and friends about these types of topics. I hope this helps someone starting out and if you have been using cups and/or sponges and have some tips or your experience to share, please do so below!
Sea Sponges: Plant or Animal? Sea Sponges are technically classified as animals. However, they do not have brains, central nervous, circulatory or digestive systems. In fact, they even survive and reproduce as other plants do. For these reasons, I am okay using sea sponges as a vegan. If this is something that you are not okay with, please do your research and decide for yourself.
Be sure to use sea sponges from a reputable source that harvest the sponges sustainably without harming the eco system.
Special Thanks to Glad Rags for introducing me to the Moon Cup!
The 3rd annual Sonoma County Veg Fest was great! To read all about it and see pictures of the vegan yummies we enjoyed, check out my recap on KimberlyElise.com!

Super Easy and Super Fun Non Toxic Slime!
Use equal parts cornstarch and water.
Mix the water into the cornstarch slowly.
This is done easiest with your hands.
You can use a spoon or spatula, but it's much more difficult.
*optional, add color of your choice.
Add in figurines and let the kids dig them out.
Experiment with items to see which float and which sink.
Try different amounts of water to change consistency.
Take it outside or in an empty tub and let the kids slime their feet, arms, legs...

I discovered Kids Licks Nail Polish at Expo West this year and was immediately intrigued!
My oldest, K owns a few non toxic nail polishes, or I should say the least toxic we could find, until we found Kids Licks. Commercial nail polishes generally contain acetone, toluene, formaldehyde and other chemicals known to be carcinogenic. Even the polishes made for children or those that claim to be natural, contain artificial dyes and ingredients you wouldn't want your little ones ingesting.
Kids Licks is actually edible! It's food based, made of fruits, veggies and plants, and washes off with soap and water. They are also Organic, Vegan, and Cruelty Free! Amazing, right?
K has been trying out the Beet Red. They also have Barley Grass Green and Sour Carrot Orange!
S joined in too. He had to have his toes painted!
Yes, we did actually try it and it tastes like bbq sauce! lol!
Completely food based coloring and so very vibrant!
We really love it! I am so pleased that I don't have to worry about them breathing in toxins or accidentally getting some on their face or in their mouths. I wish I had this when the littles first started wanting to paint their nails!
What makes me love Kid Licks even more is hat they are a family owned company. They saw a need for a food based nail polish with their own children and created an amazing product for all us to enjoy. Thank You KidLicks!
