In our house, it is still winter until further notice! We will keep buying bags of fresh blood oranges for as long as we can possibly pull it off or as long as they actually keep sending them in stores. With so many on hand the past few weeks, we have spent many days curating neat recipes with our blood orange collection, including this spa treatment style Blood Orange Lip Scrub. Of course, I’m a total nerd when it comes to reading about health benefits associated with seasonal produce, or fruits & veggies in general. We read the beneficial side of what a single blood orange can do for our skin and that’s when we started up brainstorming about using their benefit for our face. Read More
Happy Valentine’s Day!
A day for the lovers and a time to show love. This is one of my favorite little holidays because it’s so easy to just show your love to someone through actions, words and heartfelt gifts. I know it will be very hard to find time to go to the store and buy a gift or sit for a few hours and make a DIY project or craft as a present. Good and healthy food is the way to someone’s heart and, moreover, so is chocolate! Here are just a few of my favorite 5 Sweet Last Minute Valentines from Pinterest and beyond. Read More
A simple, yet refreshing DIY. As always, I keep it cheap and I keep it easy. These are my mottos in life. I don’t want to pay too much for stuff I can make myself. I, also, don’t want to dish out time and effort into purchasing these products that contain nothing but straight garbage. Most small trinkets full of cool bath stuff at the store are costly, ineffective, and the ingredients are loads of crap you cannot even pronounce. I am good on that, thank you very much! I’ll take some healthy Oatmeal Bath Satchels, any day.
This Christmas, gifts are from the heart and in mason jars. This is not to say that gifts from previous years have not been heartfelt. We just wanted to focus more specifically on mason jars than anything. Last year, we made fresh nut butter personalized to each recipient’s taste. Most of the family & friends that were on the receiving end, took their first bite that same Christmas after gift giving in the evening. Read More
Lala, my cousin, and I are leaving to Europe in just a few weeks AND I am revving up for a happy and healthy Thanksgiving this year. Our trip will last about 16 days and we come back just before Thanksgiving. I am already prepping ideas for the feast! I cannot plan in November because I will be up and about with Lala too busy worrying about following an itinerary to plan then. So, what does this mean? This means I am planning everything early this year! From Thanksgiving to New Year’s, I have it all down packed in the works. Read More
I love skin products! Everything natural, scented with yummy fragrances, and all things girly. I love shopping at Lush, for example, but their products are expensive and I could practically make it at home. There’s, also, this store that I absolutely love that they only have in New York, or so I think. It’s called Sabon. They sell all things delicious to soak in and light up. The most amazing hand and feet scrub in the world. Lush and Sabon have something in common: all natural ingredients. Read More
