I love Surprises – Citrus Lane

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Citrus Lane.  


I love surprises, do you?? Have you heard of Citrus Lane monthly subscription boxes?

 If not, let me tell you all about them.

They are these awesome boxes, that you receive every month with different (high end, great quality) products to try. These boxes contain goodies such as toys, books, snacks and personal care products. The subscription boxes are normally $25 but right now they have a special of less then $20 with FREE SHIPPING {Citrus Lane }. How awesome is that ? 

These boxes are well worth more then $20-$25 dollars which is why its such a great deal. I received my box for this month (6mth old). I added the retail price of each item in the box and the total came out to $40.75 

What was in the box? 

Rattle Roller From Green Tones ($11.00) /Dive Bath Appliques From Boon($11) / Ez Grip Messaging Teether and Rattle from Innobaby ($6) / Little Yums from Plum Organics (.75)/ Gripe Water from Mommy’s Bliss ($12)

Citrus Lane Box

My little Edward is loving his Rattle Roller and Teether And Rattle he loves to put things in his mouth so these are perfect. Also the Little Yums are tasty and smell so good they practically dissolve in your their mouths. My son enjoyed them very much. I have not tried the Mommy’s Bliss but I have heard great things about it, can’t wait to use it. Its a smoking deal if you ask me. These boxes are a great deal, fun way to try new products and all around an exciting package to look forward to each month. All mamas must try this subscription box, like seriously.

Eco-Owl by Netta Cloth Pads Review #MamasBabe

SewFatty: Eco-Owl by Netta Cloth Pad Review / www.sewfatty.com

Since making the switch to cloth pads, everything just seems to be going very easy. As though I’ve been doing this forever. It amazes me to know how easy this has been. I can’t believe I had not done this any sooner. I can now understand other ladies and their addictions to cloth pads. I find myself stalking cloth pad stores and their sales, I think I’m becoming addicted to cloth pads something like my addiction to cloth diapers 🙂

Eco-Owl by Netta cloth pads are some of my new addiction, these cloth pads are made by an awesome WAHM with two beautiful little girls. That enjoys to sew cloth pads. Here is a little bit more about her.

“My name is Benetta. I’m a Texas girl, mom and a wife, I love to sew, knit, coffee, fabric ,friends, Church, cooking, cleaning, vintage goodies and being a stay at home mom. My mom taught me to sew at a young age and I have always loved it. Okay so I have always been allergic to disposable pads and didn’t know why you might be surprised to learn that there are many chemicals in those plastic and paper products, and we just don’t know what those chemicals do when they are absorbed into our bodies. Those products are in close contact with some of our most sensitive tissues for about 1/4 of our lives during the menstrual years. I knew there had to be a better way. So when I heard about cloth menstrual pads I was intrigued but kind of grossed out. I couldn’t imagine how comfortable they would be and it seemed like a lot of trouble to wash them–but I was really sick of the sweaty, itchy, chafing disposable pads and the real discomfort. So I did some research then I pulled out my machine and made me one to try and loved it no itching and chafing and washing was not gross at all!! So I said to myself, more woman need to know about this so I started making them trying to come up with my own pattern after much testing and tweaking I did and I love it and that’s how I got started with my little cloth pad boutique and I like that I can help others too!!”

Eco-Owl Facts:

Topped: Quilters cotton or flannel.

Inner Core (absorbent layers): Cotton Terry

Backing (waterproof layer): anti-pill fleece

Pads are Turn and Top Stitched and secured with a metal snap.

 Absorbency : I have two size 10″ pads, one which is regular for moderate flow and another with an extra layer of absorbency both pads have been my “go to” pads. I’ve been using these during the day and let me just say they are amazing. I have gone 2-3 hours without changing them and they have held up great, no leaks, no shifting no problems. (Keep in mind that my period has been heavy due to having a baby recently.)The 14″ and 12″ pads I used for overnight. I have to say these are totally amazing the absorbency truly amazed me. I did not change my pad overnight until the morning, I woke up, no leaks what so ever.

Workmanship : Netta is always striving to bring nothing but the best to her shop, she pays attention to detail. The workmanship of her pads are impeccable from the placement of her snaps to the stitching.

Style|Fit : Eco- Owl pads have a unique flare to them. This look helps with coverage and it totally conforms to your body. The fit is amazing both in the front and back, I have used these pads with tight leggings and jeans and asked my mother if she could notice my pad her response was ” I can’t even see it”. I have not experienced shifting or bunching at all. I love all the sizes, I believe they all suite me well. As far as trimness I think compared to disposables they are thicker of course but the thickness also brings comfortability. If my mom wasn’t able to notice it through my leggings then I would have to say they are trim enough to not be noticed 🙂

My Stats: 

25 years old| 170 lbs | 5’5

Not to mention Netta is always adding new fabric to her shop she has such cute, modern, and whimsical fabric choices. Picking fabric will be the hardest thing you have to do 🙂

Overall: I absolutely love my Eco-Owl pads. It was definitely love at first sight 🙂 I placed an order with Netta before even reviewing them I guess I just had a feeling I would like them. I ended up loving them so much I have a few more coming my way along with a super cute bag 🙂 Netta is such an amazing person, she offers amazing customer service her products speak for themselves. Prices are totally affordable you just cant beat that !! Netta makes cloth pads, wet bags, pad wrappers, lip stick holders and recently added a super cute cloth pad key chain to her shop be sure to stop by and “LIKE” her page and see all her beautiful creations.

Care Instructions : (Netta’s Recommendation, this is exactly how I care for my pads as well.)Pad care is easy! After use, I recommend rinsing your pad until the water runs clear. I like to use Buncha farmers stain stick just rub on when rinsing. Store your pad until wash time in a wetbag or container (be sure to store them in an open topped container or wash them in a timely manner to avoid mildew). When you are ready to wash your pads, you may want to run a pre-rinse cycle. After that, wash them on low or warm. Tumble dry on low or air dry.

Eco-Owl by Netta will be offering super cute pads for our “Mamas got a brand new babe Event” be sure to come back. HINT: Leave a Comment 🙂
