My Summertime Hair & Skin treatments





Summertime can be brutal on your hair and skin (especially summertime in Florida).  Our family is constantly swimming, beaching and taking out the boat out.   Between the sun, chlorine and salt water it's important to keep your hair protected and your skin moisturized. I started this beauty regimen back in 2008 right after I moved down to Florida (this hair serum) I actually got hooked on from a co-worker that used it.  One bottle lasts FOREVER because you only need a dime sized drop in your palm.  I use Biosilk all year but in the summertime I use it almost daily after I shower.  You just apply it to your wet hair! You can then blow dry it and style as you usually do.  (This stuff actually also feels great on your skin too!) It can be bought at most drug and beauty stores but I've included my affiliate link for easy shopping below! 








Coconut oil is one of my favorite beauty secrets out there! You can use this stuff on just about anything..from food to you skin! I started using this "DIY Face Mask/Scrub" about two years ago and my skin has never felt or looked better. You only need two ingredients, that you probably already have in your kitchen!! I am obsessed with doing this mask twice a week or after boat and beach trips.  Trust me your skin will feel amazing!! Your pores look smaller your skin has a glow and is super soft! Coconut oil is so great for moisturizing your skin without making it oily. Give it a try!! 


(Any organic coconut oil will work..I found this brand at SAMS Club) 

RECIPE:
2 tablespoons of baking soda
1 Teaspoon of coconut oil
(you can add some water drops to create the paste texture you prefer)
Scrub your face with the paste for 1-2 minutes and rinse off with COLD water.

DONE! 

Let me know if you try it!! 

Have a fun and safe Holiday weekend friends! 
You guessed it..we are beach bound! And you better believe my Biosilk is comming with me!! lol

Neutrals by BEHR Paint

I've been working on a project for the past two weeks and what always seems to be the most challenging part is choosing paint colors.  I have been wanting to find a nice neutral that isn't too "Gray" and isn't too "Beige" but not too white either. I personally like the look of white walls in pictures but in reality I'm not a huge fan.  Also, I like to see a contrast between painted walls and white trim.  Each time I look over on Pinterest for inspiration I find lots of suggestions for other paint brands..but I'm a BEHR girl :)  We spend so much time at Home Depot it just makes more sense for us.  That being said I decided to share with all of you my suggestions for finding the perfect "light Greige" by BEHR Paints!  


To start off with here are three options that are lighter/cooler but will still show a nice contrast next to white.

1. Drizzle


2. Sterling

3. Halation

These three options are also a "light greige" but a tad smidge more …

My first attempt at "Meal Planning".....

Okay friends ...well the vote was basically unanimous..97% of you voted "YES" to an easy low carb based meal prepping plan for the week.  So here we are! I say "low carb based" because there are a few carbs as well as some berries.  However the intake is still very low and definitely in an approved amount for any low carb diet.  
A few things to mention... I did not have the containers and like I mentioned in my stories Monday morning I did not have time to head to Target, Walmart or wait for Amazon delivery so I purchased mine at Publix the same day I shopped.  They were very inexpensive anyways so it worked out fine.  I got two sizes of containers (entree and soup/salad) and I also ended up using some of my existing tupperware. 
The four entrees that I made for the week (I can rotate them for lunches and dinners) do not contain any chicken.  This is because I personally don't like the taste of reheated chicken.  If you do then definitely substitute out some of t…
