Life Lately & My New Power Smoothie!

About a month ago I revealed on Instagram that I was newly single.  I didn't do it for sympathy, I did it because I wanted to reveal this new chapter in my life as well as possibly reach out to other women dealing with the fall out of a failed marriage too.  Not that I have any special antidote for getting through an insanely hard trial-I just know that while you don't want other people to hurt, it still feels good to know you are not alone. My girls and I have been adjusting for a month … [Read more...]

I don't know what got into me this morning but I decided to give … [Read more...]

My Sunshine Kale Smoothie!

Ok, I'm not trying to be cocky here but I have invented the BEST smoothie EVER!  I'm not kidding.  Yesterday I talked about the amazing benefits of kale.  Today, I'm so excited to share with you probably the best smoothie I've ever made! Last weekend was spring break and my girls and my mom and I went to Dallas for the weekend.  I found myself really craving something clean and green and happened upon a Jamba Juice.  Jamba Juice is tricky because so many of their smoothies have so much sugar … [Read more...]

DIY Coconut Lotion Bars

Lotion bars are really popular in the "DIY skin care world".  They are all over Pinterest.  I have avoided them due to possible messiness and inconvenience.  Well, I'm glad I bit the bullet and made some because they are so helpful for dry skin.  Plus, for those of you looking for something a bit more solid then yesterday's Body Oil, these are for you! Plus, they are just so cute! What You'll Need: Molds Coconut Oil Shea Butter Beeswax Vitamin E Oil (optional) Essential … [Read more...]
