moisturizing orange face mask. Hey, pretty face! If you’re anything like me, you are a fan of having clear skin. Clear skin = happy skin = happy me. You’re probably wondering why I’m talking about skin and your face. After all, this is a food blog, right? I know some stuff, dudes. I’m really into making things from scratch. Since your skin is your body’s largest organ (sorry, boys), what you put on it is as important as what you put into it, right? I’ve been making my own homemade masks, exfoliants, face scrubs, hair masks, body polishes and the like since then, and I’ve decided to launch a new section on the site devoted to homemade natural beauty products. Anyhow, this orange face mask is amaaaazing for adding moisture and radiance to your face. Freshly squeezed orange juice is packed full of zinc and antioxidants, which your face loves a whole lot. Plus, if some of this mask accidentally drips into your mouth, you can totally just eat it. moisturizing orange face mask Ingredients:

Anti Aging Anti Cellulite Scrub Bars Homemade Mar 20, 2013 by Tatianna Hello my Sweeties, It’s been a while since I’ve made a beauty post, it was definitely due. I’m gonna start making more of these homemade cosmetics posts, because I really enjoy making my own beauty products at home. Today I have for you an amazing recipe for Anti-Aging & Anti-Cellulite Scrub bars, I’ve made so many that now I will have enough for at least 1 month and a half. I was only going to make 1 kind of bars, then I had left over ingredients and I’ve made more a bit differently. I have two recipes and you can make both just like I did, or just one of them. Recipe # 1 Ingredients: For the shapes I used cupcake baking tray ( if you want to get super fancy and creative you can go to art store and get some super cute shapes ) Preparation: Place all the butters into a pan on low heat so they can melt, you don’t want to use high heat because you need to preserve the nutritional for your skin components of all the products. Pour into the form holder cups. Enjoy! Hugs,

community With her pin-curled hair and penchant for beautiful vintage frocks, Marianne's blog Esme and the Laneway has been an inspiration ever since I had the pleasure of falling down the rabbit hole and welcomed into her world of pastel hair shades, bright lipsticks, and lovely vintage pieces! I was recently lucky enough to ask Marianne some questions about blogging, photography, her favorite dresses, and her cat! ♡ When and why did you start blogging? About 4.5 years ago. What are 5 things that are making you happy right now? As a fellow cat owner and lover, I'm itching to know more about Babycat! We registered Eggy at the vet and had her chipped and spayed, had the kittens checked, and our amazing friend and neighbour found homes for three kittens, kept one, and we found a home for Babycat – with someone who then, thankfully, changed their mind, so we kept her! You've had black, red, pink, lavender, and blonde hair - and you look stunning in each! Thank you again Marianne! ♡, Kailey

Acne Home Remedy Signs and Symptoms of Acne Acne is the common term used for a skin disorder that frequently appears as small elevated pimples on the face, back, chest, and shoulders. About 80% of teens are affected by acne to some degree, and it sometimes even occurs in adults up to the age of 40 if not treated properly. The image on the right shows an individual suffering from a moderate amount of acne on the face. There are two major types of acne: Non-inflammatory Acne: This type of acne typically appears as whiteheads or blackheads, and they can be treated with non-prescription acne medications and acne home remedies. Causes of Acne Acne is a skin disorder caused by plugged pores of the skin. Throughout life, and particularly during puberty, humans produce hormones such as androgen and progesterone that lead to an overproduction of sebum. Blackheads form when sebum combines with skin pigments and plugs the pores. If these two forms of acne are not treated immediately, an infection may occur. Hey.

1980s Hair Tutorial Hey Glitter Girls, it’s Jessie from Sweet Thing bringing you a fun ’80s inspired hairstyle. As a child of the ’80s one of my favorite movies growing up was Flashdance.

A few things to note: The direction of the twist determine the direction of the curls. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6.

journals I recently created a custom journal for a customer who is planning her wedding. She wanted a large book to put in wedding planning mementos, notes, letters from her mama and future mama-in-law, and other bits of memories of her engagement time. She wanted a 50 page, 6"x8" journal, and for it to have a vintage-ey feel, and with her colors - mustard yellow, rose pink, olive green and pastel colors. I knew this would be a fun book to create :) I combined vintage papers (cookbooks, dictionaries, books, ledger, etc) with new papers and Bazzill cardstock, some vellum confetti-filled pages, envelopes and overlays. I added embellishments like bunting, ribbon weaving and other die cuts to the pages, along with sewing a bunch of the pages.

How to Make Your Own Beauty Products from Scratch - Lifestyle Let's keep things simple this week. When it comes to personal-care products, we are big believers in streamlining what you use—see "Eight Products You Think You Need But Don't" for a refresher—buying less in general, and getting creative. We have both always loved experimenting in our kitchens and our bathrooms, checking ingredients in products we love, isolating the main ones, and then trying them on their own. Sometimes it works: A favorite hair leave-in contained aloe, for example, so one day we tried aloe alone and found that, lo and behold, it worked just fine on its own. Simple body scrub Many body scrubs, even the ones that claim to be sugar- or salt-based, actually contain beads made out of polyethylene, which is environmentally deplorable (it all goes down the drain, remember)—to say nothing of the preservatives, fragrance, penetration enhancers, and sulfates that typically bulk up these products.

Luxurious Homemade Body Scrub I absolutely love making homemade cosmetics, I guess I’m a bit spoiled and I don’t like the store brand cosmetics because of preservatives they use. All of the ingredients I use in homemade cosmetics has to be organic, that’s how you will get the full benefits of them ( there is no cutting corners here (-:). I have a lot of different recipes and I will slowly be sharing all of them with you here on my blog. This scrub is one of my favorites and it leaves your skin silky smooth. What makes this scrub luxurious is the 3 key ingredients blended together. Organic Whole Milk I don’t drink cow’s milk but I use it for cosmetic purposes all the time. Organic Raw Honey I wrote about the benefits of raw honey in one of my older posts. Sweet Almond Oil I’ve been using this oil in a lot of my cooking lately and I love it. The Full Ingredient list: If you have very sensitive skin, I recommend adding less sea salt and more brown sugar. Mix all the ingredients in a plastic container.

photography When Pittsburgh-based pet photographer Nicole Begley sent me a submission featuring photos of a beautiful dog named Charm, along with a little bit of her story, I was incredibly moved. Nicole told me how Charm, a small pit bull, had been used as a bait dog in a fighting ring, and ended up in a local shelter, scared and starved. Thankfully, she was rescued by loving parents who nursed her back to health through their love and care. Now Charm is 7 years old and facing another battle: liver cancer. Despite her struggles, Nicole told me, Charm is an amazingly sweet dog who has become a treasured companion. As many of you know, I am a huge dog lover, and my Bubby, like Charm, was a very special rescue dog who beat the odds over and over. We had just lost our Yellow Lab, Buster, who was almost 16 years old. Three weeks after Buster's death, we volunteered at a shelter called Animal Friends, where we've now been volunteering about twice a month for 15 years. This was 6-1/2 yeas ago.

Homemade Hair Treatments - At Home DIY Hair Treatments Eggs, yogurt and honey are, at first glance, all components of a tasty breakfast—but they also happen to be hair treatment ingredients, and affordable, all-natural ones at that. And they're not the only ones. Did you know, for instance, that the oils in avocados more closely resemble our own skin's oils than any product in the beauty aisle does? Or that the mild acidity in lemon is an effective—and gentler—alternative to chemical-laden products? Next time your locks need a lift, save money by using one of these kitchen fixes. For All Hair Types "The [raw] egg is really the best of all worlds," says Janice Cox, author of Natural Beauty at Home. To Use: For normal hair, use the entire egg to condition hair; use egg whites only to treat oily hair; use egg yolks only to moisturize dry, brittle hair, Cox says. Photo by Shutterstock. For Dull Hair To Use: Massage 1/2 cup sour cream or plain yogurt into damp hair and let sit for 20 minutes. For Itchy Scalp For Limp or Fine Hair For Frizzy Hair
