A Breath Of Fresh Air

I think it’s safe to assume we all want our homes to smell pleasant. Especially if you have pets or young children, you may even be more sensitive to this. My first thoughts when someone stops by usually goes: “Does it smell like dog in here? I really should have washed his bed.” “Eeek, all those dirty diapers upstairs.. Is the smell wafting down?” “Ugh,...

Ursa Major: Simply Natural

I recently discovered a uni-sex brand that’s had me swooning from day one. Often, I get requests for products that will work for the guy in your life and I love being able to recommend a stellar brand, that’s truly all natural and works. Using only healthy and beneficial ingredients, Ursa Major meets that criteria and has become a fast favorite for myself and my husband....

Summer Days: What’s In My Pool Bag

July is here and it’s sweltering hot here in the Carolinas. We pretty much just sit around and sweat and watch stuff melt this time of year (just kidding.. kind of). We have some German friends who always escape back to Germany for these hotter months and after the third day in a row of almost 100 degree temps last week, one of them asked how...

Josh Rosebrook: Truly Natural Hair Care

I have to say, finding a good, nontoxic haircare brand has been the bane of my mission to go completely clean with my products. After trying quite a few different natural brands, I kind of piece-mealed a routine together that consisted of a mix of different products and brands… None of which worked great, so I sometimes still dipped my toes back in the murky water of unclean...

Natural Finds At Target

Well, well, well… It looks like someone is stepping up to the plate. I have to say how truly impressed I am with Target and how many natural brands they’ve taken on. It’s amazing to be able to stroll through the beauty section and find products that I’d actually use! That being said, there is still a fair amount of green washing happening there, so I’ll get...

Thank You!

Well my friends, tomorrow will mark one full year for Maison Pur. It’s hard to believe it’s been a whole year already! I started this blog to educate and advocate for safer products, especially for women and children. My intent was to make it easier for anyone to make the switch and to fully understand why it’s important to choose nontoxic products. I truly hope I’ve...

New Discoveries

I’ve said it before, but one of my favorite things about blogging is all the wonderful, natural product lines and creators I get to discover. These brands (often handmade) are not only striving to make the most natural and effective products available, but they’re also made with so much love and detail. There have been a few products and brands I’ve come across lately that...

Funky Monkey Smoothie

Little bit of a different post for you today! From time to time I get requests for recipes or ideas of some healthy meals for kids. Truth be told, I am far from an amazing cook. In fact, my family is pretty lucky I don’t burn down our house most nights! While I’m still working on my domestic skills, I can pass along some quick, healthy...

Packing Light

So I’m hot off the heels of a quick trip to Miami this past weekend and I was challenged to only pack things that would pass through security in a carry on. Let me tell you, that is no easy task- for me or for my favorite products. It was truly a quick trip though (only 48 hours), so my husband raised an eyebrow when...
