Coconut Oil Sticks

Coconut Sticks for Fast Healing!

I have mentioned before that we live in a forest.  I wouldn’t have it any other way but with the trees comes the ticks.  Ticks don’t mess around.  One tiny baby tick can leave a huge, itchy whelp for months.   My girls and I have several tick bites each and I’ve found the best remedy…

Brew A Pot of Green Tea, Trust Me….

I have this ritual….  Around 2:00 each day, the girls go to their rooms for naps and quiet time.  This is when I either blog or catch up with the dvr.  What I try not to do is eat.  Because this is my down time, I feel like I deserve to eat but let me…

My Favorite Summer Tip

My Favorite Summer Beauty Tip…

This post might seem like a no-brainer but up until a few months ago I was seriously neglecting my upper chest, or as the french say, decolletage.  Let me make something clear, this isn’t a post about boobs.   I’m talking about the shoulders, collar bones, and upper chest area.  I guess you could say…

DIY Facial Toner

Hydrating Rose Facial Spray…

So in the last few months I have been loving a certain facial spray.  I feel like it goes a long way to balance the skin, further hydrate and even calm the skin, preparing it for a moisturizer.  Many people skip a facial spray or toner because they don’t understand how beneficial one can actually…

Sangria-Low Sugar

Skinny Summer Sangria for Those Hot Patio Nights!

Summertime is upon us and I’m ready for some warm nights on the patio!  Normally I am not a sangria fan.  I just don’t love tons of sugar in my cocktails.  After I brought home a bottle of white Zinfandel and realized it was too sweet for me, instead of throwing it out, I decided…

DIY Lip Balm Lip Gloss

Raspberry Vanilla Lip Balm

I’ve really been enjoying experimenting with some “out of the ordinary” DIYs!!  I’ve done a couple of tinted lip balms using either lip stick or mica powder but neither coloring ingredient I enjoy using.  Cosmetic grade mica is hard to find and lipstick, if it’s natural, is just to expensive to break off and throw…
