EatMoveRest | Erin Stanczyk | Nursery 2018

Since Dusty and I are waiting to find out if Baby S will be a boy or a girl (due date Dec 22), we decided to go gender neutral with bright whites and beiges in the nursery—which suits our style anyways! I can’t wait to share my mama and newborn must-haves, as well as finished nursery photos in an upcoming blog post!

To Top It Off

His + Hers Picks

Dusty’s top pick for our 2018 Conscious Consumer Gift Guide is his Wills vegan boots, and mine is my Matt & Nat vegan leather mini backpack!

Most Practical Pick

These Baxter Blue blue-light-blocking specs come in handy especially at night time, and help prevent hormone disruption and hiccups in our sleep cycles caused by the harmful blue-light emissions from our screens and devices.

Fitness Faves

I have always been an avid cyclist, but especially since progressing into third trimester of my pregnancy, I have found stationary cycling to be the safest and most comfortable, low-impact cardio workout that keeps me feeling my best!

Below is my favorite stationary bike trainer by CycleOps, and my favorite road cycling shoe brand, Pearl Izumi.

Go Green Awards

My favorite handbag brand that I discovered this year is Samara. Not only are they a vegan company, they also use eco-friendly materials that are more safe for the environment than other vegan leather companies. They manufacture their products in a small factory where workers are treated well and pay the utmost attention to detail and quality! Use discount code ‘EATMOVEREST’ to receive 15% off your purchase!

Another company that I have really come to appreciate is prAna. Not only are they fair trade certified, they also carry a line of organic cotton garments. Organic cotton drinks less water, uses rainwater more efficiently, eliminates GMOs and harmful chemicals from your closet, and switching just one t-shirt saves 115 gallons of water! Use discount code WCESF18 for 15% off your purchase!

The Reason For The Season

Ultimately, we all know that this is a season for giving, not just receiving! Two of my favorite charitable organizations are Love Justice (which fights one of the worst crimes—human-trafficking) and Charity Water (which helps to provide one of the most precious resources—clean drinking water). Feel free to read about them below, click, and donate to a worthy cause!

Love Justice

Based right here in Lincoln, Nebraska, this organization is very near and dear to me and Dusty’s hearts. Through transit monitoring and interception, Love Justice, Intl. attacks trafficking at the most strategic moment—while it’s in the process of occurring and before exploitation and enslavement. They now have 44 stations located all across the globe, and have intercepted over 15,000 individuals from slavery, exploitation, and abuse.

Charity Water

I love this organization because private donors cover all of their operation costs, so 100% of your donations go to providing clean drinking water to those in need. One in 10 people lack access to clean water and Charity Water is on a mission to change that. They’ve funded 29,725 water projects for 8.4 million people around the world.

The Countdown Begins
