Spa treatment for your hands

Who loves the spa? Meeee! Who loves to be pampered? Meeee! I know y'all were raising your hand behind your computer screen. I'm the girl who is all into facials, putting on those silly clay masks and body scrubs. I want to keep my skin young and fresh as long as I can. Who doesn't?

My latest project is a sweet sugar scrub for your hands and body. Did you know that sugar is one of the best things to exfoliate your body with? It takes away all the dead skin and promotes that soft smooth skin to grow. 

I have made a recipe for a fun fresh scrub. It's {almost} all natural.

Fresh Rosemary Sugar Scrub





















  So fresh and so clean clean






















Ingredients

Cane Sugar
Vitamin E Oil
Corn Syrup
Lavender Oil
Tea Tree Oil
Fresh Rosemary
Splash of fresh lemon juice

I don't have measurements because I played and played around with it until I got it the texture and scent that I wanted. You can change up the ingredients and make a fresh mint and lime scrub or a peppermint scrub. The possibilities are endless! Have fun with it!

These are great for hostess gifts, thank yous, thinking of yous, happy birthday or just because! Wrap a cute little ribbon around the jar and you're set! You can make these in a mason jar or anything with a lid that seals.

I keep ours by the kitchen sink.
I'm going to make a tea tree scrub for the shower.
So yummy!






















Happy scrubbing and exfoliating!

Celebrating 10 years..

Chris and I celebrated our 10 year wedding anniversary on October 6th! We celebrated today by spending the entire afternoon and evening together, kid free.  I found a killer deal for couples massages on Groupon and learned that if a deal looks too good to be true, it is.  Things we've learned after 10 years of marriage; don't take yourself too seriously, laughter is the secret to a good time and chocolate makes everything ok. 

A healthier me.

Remember my Trust your gut  post?I feel like a whole new girl since I wrote that a month ago.  So many things have been confirmed and I feel like my happy healthy self again. 
All because of two things; 1. The gallbladder cleanse that I posted about.  Literally saved my gallbladder and my sanity.  No more stomach pain! And I can drink wine and margaritas without pain again! 🙌🏼
2. I found out that I have a sensitivity to gluten. It's still a mystery to me as to how I developed this but all I know is that when I do have gluten my joints hurt, I get awful headaches and an upset stomach along with bloating. 
Back to my first post about this... I took a "before picture" thinking I was going to 5-10 pounds and then post my "after" picture. 😂😂😂
Truth is, there are still plenty of calories in gluten free food. The other truth is I'm 80-20 gluten free. I still enjoy a few non-gluten free treats here and there (and then pay for it later). 
I love food. I reward myself wit…

Trust your gut

If you've followed me on Instagram for a while you've seen that I've been struggling with pain, nausea and some other lovely side effects every single time I put something in my mouth. 😭I've been in the ER, to a specialist and was about to go in for a hidascan before I canceled it 20 hours before I was to go in.  I was uneasy about the scan in the first place. I knew it was going to show issues with my gallbladder. I had every symptom. I also knew that the next step after the scan was surgery to remove my gallbladder. I know it's an organ that isn't quite necessary but being a mom with 4 small babes, surgery wasnt the best option.  I mean it would be nice to have an excuse to lay around for a bit but let's be real, that wouldn't even happen. 🤦🏼‍♀️ #momlife I felt this super strong thing come over me the morning before to scan telling me to cancel it and change my lifestyle a bit.  I love food y'all. That's no surprise. I have 17 pounds to lose to…
