Oh my goodness, it has been almost a month since I have been on here! So sorry everyone. It's almost Christmas too??!! Well, just to quickly update you all, I am 7 months and 1 week pregnant today. It's going by faster and faster! I am so nervous about my home birth, but I know that everything will be fine if I just trust God :) Down to business...
The Himalayan Salt Shop was kind enough to send me a salt lamp to review for them. I have had this lamp since November 5th, and I just love it! A few facts about these salt lamps:
These salt lamps are made from crystal salt mined from underground the Himalayan Mountains.
They naturally emit negative ions into the air.
These negative ions bond with positive ions (which are air pollutants) and neutralize them.
Negative ions combate electo-smog put off my our electronic devices at home.
There has also been cases where these salt lamps have helps with asthma, allergies & other illnesses.
And lastly, aren't they just so pretty?
I was very curious to see how this salt lamp would work in my home once I got it. I turn it on whenever we are home (which for me is almost all day). The hotter you allow the lamp to get, the better it is for purifying the air! My husband is a preschool director and he is around sick kids and germs all day. My mom & brother also work at school and they are at my house almost every day. This made me worried when I got pregnant and moved home to Hawaii, because I am REALLY trying not to get sick while pregnant. I get sick easily. Since having this salt lamp, there has been no sickness in my house! Now, I am not saying that for sure this lamp will keep everyone in your house sickness free all the time. I am just saying, so far, so good! There have been days when I was out with my mom all day (and she has been sick a lot lately) and come home with a sore throat. Right when I got home, I turned on the salt lamp and sat near it in my living room for a few hours then went to bed. When I woke up, no more sore throat! I haven't gotten sick yet and neither has my husband who has also come home with sore throats!
It lights up so pretty at night time. My cats seem to like it too. They jump up on the shelf where I have it and just sit by it and they never would jump up there before that! I am very happy to have this for the baby room after I give birth as well. I plan on getting at least one more for our house at some point. You can see some of their beautiful lamps for sale HERE. I know I am a little late but these would be great Christmas presents! The owner Ernest is very helpful if you email him he will answer any questions you have! They also have a Facebook & Twitter! Please check them out! They have everything from himalayan salt candle holders, to lamps, baht salts and salt inhalers!

My sweet baby girl whom the Lord has blessed me with. All my life, all I wanted to be was a mom and now I am! I am lucky enough to be a stay at home mommy, so I can enjoy her every second of every day. She is the joy of my life!
This is my handsome boy Sonic named after the song Super Sonic. I adopted him from the Hawaiian Humane Soceity. His owners surrendered him because he was "getting too big." He is a hyper, loving boy who loves long trips to the park or beach. I can't imagine my life without him.
This princess was my first kitty as a married woman. She was found as a stray and given to me. She is about 5 years old. She is named Koko, which means night in Native American. She is a little princess who thinks she rules the house. She thinks, no, she KNOWS that our king sized bed is actually hers. She's a sassy, timid tortie, but I love her dearly.
This big boy is named Nano. I found him under a shed as a baby kitten, and a dog was trying to attack him. When I found him he was so sick, he almost died. I had to nurse him back to health for months. He is now a huge 18.5 lb cat. He is THE most loving cat ever. He sleeps by my side every night.
This boy was found at the school by husband taught when he was a kitten. The janitor was threatening to shoot him, so my husband brought him home for me. He was sickly when we got him as well. Now, he is a rambunctious little boy who likes to "nascar" up and down the hallway with Rahjah. He also likes to eat lots of grass. Weirdo.
This is my youngest. He was a SCARShelter kitten, rescued as a stray. He was suppose to go up for adoption, but we fell in love with him. He is a naughty little tuxedo cat, who likes to bug his sister and brothers and tries to beat up Sonic. Although he is naughty, he is also a cuddle bug when he wants to be.
