Heather’s Lavender Body Scrub

Posted by on Feb 23, 2015 in Good Ideas & How To's | 2 comments

As a gift, my wonderful friend Heather made me some homemade lavender body scrub, and she even shared her recipe (and said I could share it with you)! I am telling you, this is so simple to make and has been an amazing, glowing, softening gift to my skin, and you MUST try it!

Ingredients

1 cup coconut oil

1 cup sugar

15 to 20 drops Lavender essential oil

empty jar

serving stick (or popsicle stick)

Directions

In a large bowl, add room temperature coconut oil, sugar, and lavender. With two butter knifes, cut mixture until all ingredients are mixed together. Scoop sugar scrub into a jar. Then put serving stick in jar.

Rub scrub into dry skin, using circular motions, then rinse. You may also use it on your face, but be very gentle and NEVER use it on the soft part of your skin under your eyes.

***This will make your shower very slippery, so use with caution! I use Dawn soap to remove the oil from shower.

That’s right I put my scrub in an empty-clean Texas salsa jar. I know kind of weird, but I’m taking it to CO with me (hope it does not get confiscated at the airport) and I did not want to put the scrub in one of my nice jars. Please note, that I love this scrub so much I made a batch just to take with me (if this does not convince you to make it, I don’t know what will). I use this scrub about 2 times a week. However, everyone’s skin is unique and beautiful so use your best judgement, you may need the scrub less or more. Enjoy!!!

A very special thank you to Heather, for gifting me this wonderful scrub and allowing me to share your incredible recipe!

 

…See you later for now, I am headed towards Colorado.

Have A Fortunate Weekend

Posted by on Feb 20, 2015 in Good Ideas & How To's | 1 comment

Chris brought home these purple fortune cookies, from his  school (his school color is purple, go figure). We have yet to crack them open…

 

What are you up to this weekend? I will be packing for my trip to Colorado. My beautiful sister, will be having her second baby; making me an auntie times two! Speaking of my CO trip, I wanted to give you a little heads up, and let you know my posts will be very sporadic while I am there, with some days having no posts. I have to enjoy my little nephew and soon to come niece as much as possible while I’m there! I hope that what ever you may be up to, you have a very fortunate weekend! Enjoy these fun links from around the web…

 

A great cover of stay with me/every little thing music match up.

 

I love the skylight  in this kitchen!!!

 

Watch the Dior makeup video, I have no idea what he is saying but it is still really neat!

Bright Swinging Beach Chair

Posted by on Feb 19, 2015 in Decorating | 0 comments

Ok, this colorful swinging chair might be too much for the landlocked states to handle, but can’t you just picture it in your beach home! Take a look-see at these other fun chairs as well…

 

You can find more info on this unique chair here.

 

 

This one comes made with different materials with different colors too.

 

 

This one I LOVE,  it’s kind of modern, kind of retro. I wonder if it is comfortable to sit in?

 

Do you or anyone you know have a hanging chair? My mom has a really neat one from Pier1, and it’s really cool because it can be used for both inside or outdoors. I think it would be a bit much to put one in Chris and my tiny apartment! Who knows though maybe one day when we move…

Better With You

Posted by on Feb 18, 2015 in Books Music & Movies | 1 comment

I’m hooked on a new song called Better With You; ok it’s not new. The song is from the 90’s, but it it is new to me. Take a listen to Better With You by Abigail Zsiga…

 

By  the way, the video is um not great, but the song still is.

Better With You

I’m good on my own, I’m good all alone
I’ve got all that I need and it’s nothing I own
I know what is right and I know what is true
I’m good that way, but I’m better with you
I’m better with you

There’s a voice in my head and it comes when I’m sleeping
Something this good cannot possibly be
And the problem with trust is the problem with love
And the problem is probably me

I’m good on my own, I’m good all alone
I’ve got all that I need and it’s nothing I own
I know what is right and I know what is true
I’m good that way, but I’m better with you
I’m better with you

Somehow I know if I lean I will fall down
And I cannot ask you to soften that blow
So you wave as I leave, as I swim out to sea
And you’re wishing me well because that’s what I need

I’m good on my own and I’m good all alone
I’ve got all that I need and it’s nothing I own
I know what is right and I know what is true
I’m good that way, but I’m better with you
I’m better with you

But I pushed you too hard
And I went a little far
And without you is killing me, killing me

I’m good on my own and I’m good all alone
I’ve got all that I need and it’s nothing I own
I know what is right and I know what is true
I’m good that way, but I’m better with you
I’m better with you

Mesh Toms

Posted by on Feb 17, 2015 in Fashion & Popular Products | 0 comments

Very much so. This is what I would say if someone where to ask me “Do you like the new mesh Toms?” They are so adorable, and make me wish a warm spring was here! I like the black, blue and silver best. The silver would look great with this swimsuit coverup, sitting at a little lunch shop, with an ocean view! You can find these mesh Toms here and here.
