A Good Life

Life is blissful and fulfilling for me. I’m very lucky because I can say that and mean it. Having a loving family  with a wife and 3 kids, plus a business of my own, is great and there is never a dull moment. The days are filled with plenty of entries on my to-do list, from soccer practice to dance class to date night to blog posting. While the best things in life may not always be free, I’d say they are often pure and simple. Moments of calm and peace can sometimes feel unattainable, but they are welcome when they come around. Finding both little and big things to help manage the calm and the manic is essential. These little things can come from sometimes unexpected sources, too. For example, Ivory Soap can help simplify your everyday routine with your family so you can focus on the big moments. That’s why I’m so pleased to be partnering with Ivory to talk about why pure and simple is always a good idea!

Keep It Simple

Don’t make everything so complicated. KISS and all that, it makes sense if you think about it. Take summer vacation for example. Maybe the kids don’t have to go to camps every single week. Just let them pop in on their friends, run errands with you, or just do nothing at all. It’s ok, really.

How about when you go on vacation, don’t plan every little detail. Leave time for actual exploring! Some of the absolute most memorable times we have had as a family on vacation was when were just roaming around Madrid or even Disney World. You can do it, believe me. I’m not saying not to plan ANYTHING, just not EVERYTHING!

When everyone is home on a random Tuesday night any time of the year, maybe try grabbing the family, shooting down to the closest beach or lake with just you and your swimsuits and just hang out until the sun goes down. It’s the most magical time to be on the water, man. It’s priceless. There are so many ways we can just tone down what we do and how we do, just in the spirit of keeping things a bit more…simple.

Trusted Generation After Generation

As much as we may try to simplify, we still tend to have a lot of…stuff. You know what I mean. There’s just a lot that we tend to “need” in today’s modern world. From central air conditioning to dishwashers to cars with back up cameras. When you look for products to use in your home, I bet you trust the experiences you have had in the past. Or maybe you do your research using trusted resources. If you’ve done your research, you know Ivory products are made pure to give parents peace of mind. It’s just one less thing you have to worry about, right? Washing up in the morning, clean-up after practice, and bedtime baths are easy when you know what products you can trust. How could you not trust a product that’s literally been around for 138 years based on its purity, right??

I believe in Ivory’s trusted value and have for so many years. I’ve used these products since I was a kid and now I don’t hesitate to use them for my own kids. It’s easy to make better choices for your family, every day with something that provides a pure, gentle clean for the entire family. I mean, Ivory created the first soap that was 99.44% pure. We all know that famous number. It’s iconic for all the right reasons but the best part is that Ivory continues to make safe and gentle products for the whole family today, even after all this time has passed.

Ivory Products

The Ivory Bar Soap may have a new (beautifully classic) look, but it’s the same 99.44% pure soap, free of dyes and heavy perfumes. The Ivory Clean Body Wash is free of dyes and heavy perfumes as well.. Whichever product your family loves to use, they both reflect over 130 years of experience creating gentle products the whole family can trust. Count on it.

The History

Ivory soap is one of America’s most historic, iconic brands. It’s easy to see why. Starting 138 years ago with a floating bar of soap, Ivory was the original gentle family brand you could trust. It’s a name, a product, and a brand just about everyone knows. That’s something amazing. When Ivory continues to uphold the standard of using only pure & purposeful ingredients in its products, people tend to notice.

Get More of the Pure

Times have changed since 1879, but more than ever consumers need brands that are safe and gentle enough for their family. People need this type of comfort in their ever more busy lives. Spend more time on the things that matter most. Find out even more about Ivory here:

Ivory has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. My mom used to buy it all the time. I remember as a kid sitting in the bathtub and breaking the soap in half like they did on the commercials. It must have driven my mom nuts. LOL

We have Ivory products in all our bathrooms! They are our go to soap for our entire family and I love reading that other families love the IVORY line and trust the brand as much as I do!

Simple is the best way to live life. Sure, you’ll have moments that aren’t so simple; but, living as simple as possible feels so good. Ivory has always been that brand that delivers a great product through simplicity.

I remember Ivory soap when I was a kid. I love that they have different varieties of soap now!

I have used Ivory soap since I was a little girl! The smell of it is so pure and comforting to me.

We used to use it all of the time. I don’t know why we stopped, it really is simple clean that works. And hurrah for being busy and fulfilled. Life’s to short to be lazy and unhappy. 🙂

There’s a reason that Ivory has stood the test of time, and that’s because it’s wonderful. I remember grandma using it on us when we were little and now I use it with my own girls. And, I love your tip about not planning every detail. We are leaving for vacay next week and I hope to stumble upon some fun things that weren’t in our itinerary.

Ivory is the purest bath soap ever made. No dyes, no strong scents, but it does what it is supposed to do – keep us clean! Simple and no fuss, just like how we should be living our lives.
