Vanilla Mint Sugar Scrub

I absolutely love how my skin feels when I am exfoliating regularly. It leaves skin feeling baby soft! I used to buy different scrubs to use in the shower, but they can be quite expensive. The good  news is that making your own scrub costs very little and takes less than 15 minutes. It is a major win! I love making different varieties to try, but I also love making them to give as gifts! This vanilla mint sugar scrub is one of my favorite scrubs to make. The scent is really soothing and delicious!

Monster Bath Bomb for Kids

Kids love bath bombs just as much as adults do! There just aren’t that many “fun” DIY bath bomb options out there for kids. So to get in the Halloween spirit, I made these darling monster bath bombs! They would be really fun to give out at a Halloween party, but they are also something that you could make any time of the year.

Halloween Skewers Healthy and Non-Healthy Versions

Making food for a Halloween party can be hard! Many of the options are too creepy or two time consuming. That is why I love the idea of making easy Halloween skewers that are quick to make and can be made in either a healthy or a non-healthy option!

Minnie Mouse Slime Recipe

We have officially caught the slime bug! We love making slime at our house and I love coming up with new recipes and new themes for each batch of slime that we make. I recently started playing around with a slime recipe that includes lotion in it that ends up making the slime so soft and smooth! I knew I needed to use that recipe when I created this fun Minnie Mouse Slime!

This slime is fun to play with just as regular slime, but it is also fun to try and treasure hunt to find the different designs that are hiding in the slime. It is a great sensory activity to play that also helps work on fine motor skills as kids use their fingers to search for the little pieces. Obviously, this isn’t a toy for kids that are too small because the beads in the slime would be considered a choking hazard. For my Minnie Mouse loving 5 year old, this slime was perfect!

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!
