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 …

N-Hance Wood Refinishing:

So who has thought about getting their kitchen cabinets painted? Bathroom vanities perhaps? I HAVE! Some of you may remember in our previous house I painted (chalk painted) our kitchen cabinets and I swore to never do it again.  It was such hard work and they needed to be retouched not once but twice while we lived there.  When we moved into our current house I asked around for some professional recommendations for painting cabinetry and the company N-Hance got mentioned quite a few times.  While we haven't taken the plunge yet I can now say my husband and I are so excited! They use an ultraviolet light curing technology that leaves the c…
