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

Our Master Bedroom Flooring

Last night as I was showing a neighbor around the house (for a girls wine night..how fun right?!!) I realized that I hadn't shared our master flooring and office flooring!! You guys this floor was literally a STEAL! Every single person that has come to see the new house LOVES these floors!

Okay, so back to the beginning... when we were picking out the carpet for upstairs my husband and I both decided we didn't want the master bedroom to get new carpet.  It is the only bedroom on the first floor and the entire rest of the house already had tile.  I personally did not want wood tile in the bedroom just because I felt the need for something "softer".  Getting new hardwoods wasn't exactly in the budget so we decided to check out laminates.  Now, let me start by saying I have never liked laminate. You all know as soon as we buy fixer upper properties we ALWAYS rip out the laminate.  I just think it looks cheap.  Well...I was so impressed with all the laminate floors th…

One Room Challenge (Week 6) Dining Room REVEAL

It's week SIX! Our dining room is officially done and the One Room Challenge has come to an end...
Check out all the ORC reveals here....Guest Participants Before I get into all the pictures I want to thank my partners on this project! Without them this room would never have come together as it did!  So a BIG "thank you" to 
Lexmod Furniture WallPops Bealls Outlet
Lets start off by taking a look back six weeks at the dining room "Before".


The room sat pretty empty for a few months after we moved in but now it is anything but empty! 
She's all DONE!



When I come down the stairs now I can't help but love my new view! I am so happy I went with the side accent wall and not the wall opposite the window!  I think it makes the room feel bigger.

Our newest addition (Blue Rug Obsession)

Good Morning Friends!  Over break we added another BLU-tiful rug to the household.   In case you haven't noticed blue is kind of the running theme in this house (Our Coastal Craftsman) and I can't seem to get enough.  The kitchen needed a runner but I couldn't find one that was the exact length I wanted so instead I ordered a 3x5 rug.  This post contains affiliate links provided by Wayfair.
When you walk in my house you see the dining room rug (Link to buy dining room rug HERE ) and it has so many beautiful colors and keeps the room feeling light and bright.  The kitchen has a lot of light too but I didn't want something AS light just because I knew it would get a lot of traffic/ and or kitchen accidents.  



I almost went with the blue family room rug because FOR REAL it is SO gorgeous and SO soft (Link to buy family room rug HERE ) but I knew I wanted to make sure I had some aqua and just different shades of blue really to play with in the kitchen) 



So when I found th…
