From couch to bed in under two seconds!!!


**image from @thecouchbed **

We LOVE our couched in the kids playroom. It is perfect for our boys because they like to wrestle and jump around and if one of them gets tackled on this couch they won't hurt their head. Its so soft and cushiony and the kiddos love it... (During the month of April Couchbed is offering my followers 10% off if you use code kylie10)  


They can go from playing to napping  to playing again without any hassle. it is so easy and that is what I love most about it. The cover is removable and washable which is a must with littles...





Another thing I love about it is that it is a great place to take pictures of my kids because it is so modern looking.... I think it would look great in an office, dorm, or small space too!!




It is Centipur Certified foam too so you won't find any formaldehyde or other super harmful chemicals!!

AVA- Natural Family Planning, Ovulation Tracking and Pregnancy Monitor

Natural Family Planning, Ovulation Tracking, & Pregnancy Monitor Bracelet!! 

I began using the AVA ovulation tracking bracelet once my cycle started back up after having my third baby.... My husband and I were opposed to using the pill or other forms of hormonal birth control and since my cycle is so irregular it makes it really difficult to track using a calendar and temperature method. That's why I started my search for a natural way to track my cycle and I came across the Ava bracelet. 

*** For 20$ off your YOUR AVA CLICK HERE!!!***

This bracelet tracks multiple things while you sleep to help determine your most fertile days each month. (Which is great for trying to conceive or trying not to) It also tracks along with your pregnancy if you use it while pregnant!


The clinically proven way to track your cycle

Finally understand your body

Wear the Ava bracelet at night for effortless insight about your fertility, pregnancy, and your health.

Real-time detection of fertile window

Ava is clinically proven to detect the very beginning of the fertile window—in real time, as it happens. That’s totally different than LH tests, which only detect the last day or two of the fertile window, and the temperature method, which only confirms ovulation after the fact.

Health data

Tracks your sleep, physiological stress levels, and resting heart rate—so you can see whether your lifestyle is supporting optimal health.

Effortless

There’s no need to take your temperature or pee on sticks. Just wear Ava when you sleep and sync when you wake up.

Pregnancy tracking

Ava is still there for you once you conceive. Once you get pregnant, get a whole new app experience with detailed explanations about what to expect in each week of pregnancy. You’ll be able to continue tracking your sleep, physiological stress, and resting pulse rate, as well as compare your weekly weight gain to standard recommendations.

Cycle insight

Understand how your cycle impacts your health with features like symptom tracking, trend analysis, graphs, and more. Trend analysis lets you see how your menstrual cycle impacts the way you feel throughout the month.

Conceive faster

Couples who time intercourse accurately double their chances of conceiving in a given month.

You can find out more on their website.


How have I liked using the AVA so far? 
 
I love being able to wake up in the morning and go to my AVA app and see how many hours of sleep I got, if I'm ovulating or not, and other really cool things... 

I love that it is the perfect companion to natural family planning.

I love the idea of being able to track a pregnancy with it too and see stress levels.

I love that theres no radiation emitting from it and it doesn't connect via wifi but through bluetooth... 

I love how easy it is!!!

Wear it while you sleep.... charge it while awake.That simple!

Any drawbacks?

Since my cycle is so irregular (my midwife thinks I may ovulate twice per month) and I'm up multiple times a night with kiddos... I've found that it has had a little more difficult time tracking me... For this reason I have also decided to use ovulation pee sticks as a second method of predicting ovulation just to be double sure as to when it is happening...

Do I recommend AVA?

I definitely recommend AVA... I prefer natural methods in all areas of life and this is one of the biggest areas for me. Hormonal birth control can cause all sorts of health issues and IUD's can be invasive. Theres also the whole other topic about different methods being abortive.... AVA is natural and helps you learn more about your body and cycle. If you are trying to get pregnant there are soooo many reviews of success after using AVA. Its so cool too that you can continue using it throughout pregnancy! (if you are nursing or have super irregular cycles you may want to do more research before making the investment) If you want a discount you can click on the link below for 20$ off.



Have you tried AVA? What methods of natural family planning have worked for you? I'd love to hear about it in the comments...

Blue Light Glasses

Mar 26, 2018

Tension Headaches, Eye Strain, Insomnia, Tired Red Eyes?? Here’s a solution that might help!!




I first heard about blue light blocking glasses because I get lots of headaches and this has been a very effective way for people to rid themselves of headaches. ((Just checkout the amazon reviews... they are all so positive)) You are supposed to wear the glasses when you are using devices or watching tv. (Basically all screen time) They filter out some or most of the blue light that is emitted from screens which is what affects sleep, tension, eye health, and more. After doing more research I found out that these glasses are beneficial for so many things... especially healthy sleep!! 

Here are some of the benefits of blue light blocking glasses: 

Eye Protection
Melatonin Production 
Headaches
Cortisol Patterns 
Better Sleep 





Why you should avoid blue light:

Dr Mercola states that: Exposure to artificial light is one of the largest often-overlooked health risks of living in the 21st century. Your early ancestors had no such worries, as their day started and ended with the rise and fall of the sun, which synchronized perfectly with their circadian rhythm. 
Today, your body is still attuned to this internal clock. In the morning, bright, blue-light-rich sunlight signals to your body that it's time to wake up. At night, as the sun sets, darkness should signal to your body that it's time to sleep. 
The problem is that most people living in developed countries no longer go to sleep when the sun sets. 
Instead, we turn on LED lights, computers, televisions, tablets and smartphones, all of which expose us to varying amounts of blue light at a time of day when there's supposed to be next to none. Your body is understandably confused as a result.


It's now becoming clear that one of the least expensive and simplest ways to protect your body's internal rhythm, and thereby support healthy sleep and a lowered risk of many chronic diseases, is to wear blue-light-blocking glasses not just at night but anytime you are exposed to artificial lights.



So I decided to give them a try and I noticed a difference immediately with head tension and eye strain. After continuing to wear them for a few months I’m even more in love with them. On rare occasions when I forget them and watch tv without them I can feel the tension in my forehead again. I think that blue light glasses are an amazing investment for your health! 
Not only do I use them but my husband and kids do now too!! 


By now you are probably wondering which ones are best... so I’ll give you a few of my favorite options below! I have a few different pairs and I love them all! 

The ones I am wearing in the image at the very top of the blog are Blue IQ lenses from LensCrafters.

I love these because you get to choose your frame. The ones I chose are Prada.... they have lots of brands like coach, michael kors, Ray-ban, & Oakley. Another benefit is that if you have a prescription they can be added into your prescription lenses. 

The glasses my husband has are from GUNNAR OPTIKS.

They are patented and you can add a prescription too.

These Kids Blue Light Blocking Glasses are a good option on Amazon for little ones.

I also have these from Amazon (see below) and they are great. They have awesome reviews and are inexpensive!!
