Coconut Avocado Face Mask

There is just nothing like having a nice, relaxing evening after a long day. This doesn’t happen often, but when it does, it makes the next few days feel completely different because I am refreshed and energized. One thing I like to do on nights that I get to treat myself is I like to put a facial mask on. They can get a little expensive, but thankfully there are tons of great homemade options that are totally affordable and easy to make. One of my favorites is a coconut avocado face mask. It is packed full of moisture and makes my skin feel great!

Whole30 Breakfast Sausage Skillet Hash

We are on day 16 of Whole30 and I must say, Whole30 has been a much more positive experience this time around than it was for me last year! There are a lot of reasons for this, but one of them is that I am much more comfortable with Whole30 compliant foods and feel comfortable enough to even adapt other recipes or create recipes of my own! This Whole30 Breakfast Sausage Skillet Hash might be my favorite creation to date. It is delicious! For those of you who aren’t following Whole30 standards, it is still really good!

This dish is incredibly filling and really is a great way to start your morning. For me, the sausage in this meal was a really nice break from the other Whole30 breakfasts that we typically have. This gave a little more normalcy to my new diet. The flavors all blend together so nicely and create a perfect breakfast combination! [Read more…]

Vanilla Rose Salt Scrub Beauty and the Beast Blog Hop

If you don’t use a scrub while you are in the bath or the shower, you are seriously missing out. I am obsessed with scrubs! I use a scrub every single day and I love how soft and smooth it makes my skin feel. I have also loved creating my own scrubs and finding scents that I love together. This vanilla rose scent has quickly become a favorite of mine!

I was three years old when Beauty and the Beast was released when I was 3 years old. As any three year old would be, I quickly became obsessed with the movie. I even sang a song from the movie in a talent show with my best friend in kindergarten! My lifelong love of Beauty and the Beast is why I am so excited for the upcoming release of the new Beauty and the Beast movie! That is why I decided to share this vanilla rose salt scrub with all of you that is inspired by Beauty and the Beast!

Stress Relieving Bath Salts

We all have stress in our lives! It is an unfortunate part of life, but it is something that we all deal with. One thing that helps me when I am starting to feel overwhelmed is taking a nice, hot bath. I have been adding a few different essential oils to my bath. I have found that when I mix lavender and grapefruit essential oil together, it creates just the right stress relieving bath for me. I decided to make stress relieving bath salts that are infused with lavender and grapefruit so that I can have them on hand when I am in need of a stress relieving bath!

Moana Birthday Party

This post is all about the decor of the Moana Birthday Party. Tomorrow’s post will include all of the games and the printables you need for the games for the Moana party!

We were one of the thousands of families who totally fell in love with Moana after we watched it Thanksgiving weekend. It had such a sweet story with great messages and incredible music that we all left the theater singing! That is why it was no surprise to me when my daughter told me she wanted to have a Moana birthday party! I was excited to create a Moana party, but didn’t want everything to be so character themed, so we went with an island luau with a lot of Moana inspiration. I just love how it all turned out and it was a blast!

All Natural Skin Exfoliant for Less Than $1!

I hadn’t ever used skin exfoliant until I was in beauty school. I struggled with clogged pores all through high school and when I found out that all I had to do to make my skin look about 1,000 times better was by exfoliating, I was thrilled! The problem was that the skincare line that was used at my beauty school was quite expensive and I hated spending that much money for an exfoliant. After I started working in a day spa, I learned a trick to creating the perfect skin exfoliant for less than $1!

Fruit Infused Water

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of EveryDrop™. All opinions are 100% mine.

I haven’t had soda for almost a month now. Considering the fact that I was pretty much addicted to it, this is a huge feat for me! Water has been the only thing I have had to drink since I quit drinking soda. I quickly realized that I needed a way to filter my water that would filter as quickly as I need water throughout the day. I quickly fell in love with the EveryDrop™ PopOut Filter & Pitcher. It helps reduce bad taste, odor, chloramine, and chlorine from water. The water tastes great! To make give the water even more variety, I came up with some of my favorite flavor combinations for fruit infused water too. It tastes like a little vacation in a cup!
