Boo! It is my favorite time of the year, Halloween season! What better way to celebrate than a seasonal bath bomb, inspired by a play on words… blood bath!

How to Cut Your Own Split Ends

When I was in a salon full time, my clients would ask me how they could extend the wear of their haircut. I would give them shampoo, conditioner, and hair product recommendations, but the trick that they seemed to be most excited about was when I would teach them how to cut your own split ends.

Cutting your own split ends isn’t as scary as it sounds. You aren’t changing your haircut in any way and you aren’t even taking length off of your hair. You are simply cutting the split ends off of your hair, in order to keep your hair healthy and let you go a few extra weeks between haircuts. Let’s face it, most people drag the weeks between haircuts anyway, so why not have the tools you need to keep your hair healthy between them rather than getting to the cosmetologist with hair that is totally destroyed from split ends.

All you need is a comb and a pair of scissors. [Read more…]

World’s Best Rice Krispie Treats Recipe

I’m about to let you all in on a secret of mine. I don’t have many recipes that are all my own, but this rice krispie treats recipe is one of the few that I can call my own. I experimented over several years until I found the perfect combination of salt, butter, Rice Krispies, and marshmallows… and I finally found it. But then I didn’t want to share it. I wanted to keep it to myself. I finally had myself a “secret recipe” that I could keep to myself. But then I started taking these blissful squares to parties and family functions and more people started asking for the recipe and I realized that the people NEED my secret world’s best rice krispie treats recipe!

Sometimes screen time can be a delicate balance, but if there is plenty of educational screen time happening, I don’t mind more screen time.
