Coconut Lavender After Swim Leave In Conditioner

One topic I get asked a lot about is hair care when it comes to swimming. Honestly, every head of hair is so different when it comes to the way it responds to chlorine! It is hard to give general advice when it comes to swim hair care, but one thing that is consistent with everyone is the importance of moisturizing after you swim! Whether you are swimming in chlorine, fresh water, or salt water, moisturizing is so important! I have tried several leave in conditioners and homemade leave in conditioners in the past and finally found a recipe that I think is ideal for swimming (or really any time!)

Leave in conditioner is great for a number of reasons. Obviously it is giving your hair more moisture, but it also is a great detangler. Having a spray leave in conditioner helps to distribute the product, without it being too heavy, too!  [Read more…]

I have learned throughout the years that I care more and more about what ingredients I am putting in and on my body. I used to think that you could only control what food you put in your body, but I have loved learning more about homemade cosmetics to put on my body as well!

Elena of Avalor Glitter Slime Recipe

Tracking Pixel
We are big Disney Junior fans at our house. I think I enjoy watching the shows on there as much as my 5 year old does! That is why we are so honored to have Disney Junior sponsoring this post. We have our favorite shows set to record on our TV so that we can watch them together. Our TV has a busy day of recording on Fridays because of Disney Junior‘s FRiYAY morning schedule this summer on the Disney Channel. There is a new episode that premieres each Friday and we look forward to catching all of our favorite shows that way.

One of our favorite shows to watch together is Elena of Avalor. My daughter loves that the show is full of adventure and she loves Elena’s dresses, while I love that the show teaches great values. I really like that Elena had the opportunity to rule the kingdom on her own, but she chooses to have a council to help her. It teaches that no matter how big of responsibilities you might have, you can always surround yourself with good friends to help support you along the way!

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!
