From À LA MODEST
Happy Friday! Here is another not-so-regular edition of Friday Favorites! Check below for the things I’ve been loving this week.
Air purifier charcoal bags
We like to keep our air clean inside the home as much as possible, especially with a little one. We like to use these natural activated Charcoal Bags in different rooms to purify the air. They’re handy enough that you can take them around with you in the car, in baby’s diaper bag, in the bathroom, etc. All they have inside is charcoal, and this one pictured below with Ramona is from a company called Sagano who get their charcoal from bamboo. You can also get charcoal from coconuts, which we also like to use.
Children’s “truther” books
After my interview with Radio3Fourteen, a listener e-mailed me about a children’s Book he wanted to send Ramona that he authored and illustrated. The book is called Rollerdog, and the very talented author-artist behind it is Simon Krimms.
The illustrations blew me away, but the best part is the message of course. Too often, we shelter our children from the world and its issues fearing that they will grow up too fast, be too scared to do much of anything, or be too interested in these dark topics, enough to pursue them. This book, designed for children, doesn’t shy away from exposing the lies we’ve all been told since the moment we entered into this world, from women “empowerment” to genetically modified foods.
If you send your children to public school, have them watch regular programming on TV, or expect them to be exposed to people in general, they’re already getting their schooling about the world—whether you like it or not. The best thing to do is school them yourself within your own home, because the rest of the world has been lied to with propaganda, including your unsuspecting but well-meaning family members.
Do consider buying a copy for your children or just for yourself and support the artist and truther behind Rollerdog. We need more of this kind of literature, and we need it for the future of our world—our children. We’ll probably be reviewing the book in more detail on our ancestral health blog, Modern Life Survivalist.
Baby girl bow clips
I just love this set of colorful bow clips I got online. They’re about $10 for a pack of 20 on Amazon, and they offer more colors for a slightly higher price. You probably won’t need any more than 20 colors though. These are all you need to match with just about every outfit for your little girl! Ramona has had a full head of hair from the day she was born, so I was fortunate that I was able to style her hair with clips from the beginning without needing to use headbands all the time, which can leave dents on your baby’s soft scalp.
If your little one doesn’t have enough hair to grab on to, you might want to hack these clips with a piece of foam in there.
