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!

The thing I love the most about creating my own exfoliant is that I have complete control over how intense the exfoliator is. Sometimes my skin needs to be exfoliated more than other times and I have total control over that when I make my own!  [Read more…]

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!

How to Choose the Perfect Watermelon

Have you ever seen that viral video going around of the hippo eating the watermelons? I can totally relate to that hippo. I LOVE watermelon.

Over the years, I have learned a few tricks to choosing the perfect watermelon and I want to share these tips with you, as long as you don’t take all of the good ones away from me.

I don’t know what it is about this time of year, but it feels like there is some sort of internal switch that turns on inside me that makes me want to shovel food into my mouth all of the time.

Candy Corn Chocolate Popcorn & Frankenstein Goodie Bags

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of The Hershey Company for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.

I love that Halloween kind of kicks off the beginning of the time of year where people enjoy hosting events at their houses. In fact, 34 percent of people attend or throw Halloween parties. Halloween parties are just the best because you can dress up and eat delicious treats. Hershey’s candy is basically a Halloween staple at our house! Hershey’s helps families harness the magic of Halloween by sharing new and classic treats that help transform any Halloween party from normal to paranormal! Hershey has seasonal flavors that include chocolate assortment variety bags with a little something for everyone, Reese’s Peanut Butter Pumpkins, Kit Kat® bars, and Cadbury Screme Eggs! Yes, you heard that right. Cadbury Creme Eggs aren’t just an Easter staple anymore! My candy dreams completely came true when I discovered that Hershey’s Candy Corn bars existed. It is basically the Hershey’s Cookies n Cream bars, but instead of the cookie bits, they are candy corn bits. They are dreamy! I just knew that I needed to incorporate them into a recipe somehow, so I made a delicious chocolate candy corn recipe and some adorable Frankenstein monster goodie bags to stuff the popcorn (or more candy) in!

First up, the recipe for this delicious Halloween popcorn! If your pants don’t fit after making this, I take no responsibility. This popcorn is just that good!

Fruit Salad Honey Lime Sugar Syrup

My little brother got married in June. At his wedding luncheon, we were served a fruit salad with our meal. The fruit was literally the most delicious fruit I had ever tasted. It was so sweet and so good! While I was eating it, I noticed that there was a little syrup of some sort on it. I knew that that was what was making the fruit taste so good! After the luncheon, we were cleaning up and one of the caterers was cleaning up too. We complimented her on how delicious it all was, but we couldn’t stop talking about the fruit! She mentioned that they used a honey lime sugar syrup over all of it that made it taste even more delicious than the fruit already is naturally.

I needed that recipe! I came home and searched high and low online, but had no luck at finding a recipe. So, I made my own! It isn’t exactly the same as theirs, but it is pretty darn good.
