This face mask looks amazing, I mean love anything containing pumpkin (the same goes for almonds and coconuts so..) so when I saw this at “The Kitchy Kitchen” it pretty much made my day (thank you Diana for sending me her blog). Let’s hope it’s as amazing as I think it is
1/4 cup pumpkin puree
1/4 cup whole milk
1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon cinnamon
2 tablespoons coconut oil
2 tablespoons almonds (grind in food processor until powdery)
Mix all ingredients together to form a paste and apply to skin using fingers. Leave on for 30 minutes and then wash off. (You can also change the coarseness of the almonds to make this more of a scrub.)
I love kefier yoghurt and anything that has to do with müslie, it’s my go to breakfast. While living in Sweden I loved the unsweetened oat yoghurt in the morning, but I’ve had trouble finding a yoghurt I like in Australia. The soy yoghurts all have sugar in them and when I asked for a plain one I was given vanilla… vanilla isn’t plain! So I go with coconut, it doesn’t have the sour taste I like but what can you do.
When I saw this post while browsing this blog, I knew I had to try it! Kefir AND coconut, the two best things in life (or at least when it comes the breakfast..)
To make kefir you need “kefir grains” they are re-usable and multiply, to see where you can find the please go the the original post here
1. Add 1 tablespoon of fresh kefir grains to 1-2 cups of coconut milk.
Note: I made my own coconut milk by blending 1 cup of shredded coconut with 2 cups of water and straining the liquid through a nut milk bag.
2. Combine the grains with the coconut milk in a glass jar. Cover with a cloth secured with a rubber bad and let it sit on your bench (a warm environment is best for fermenting) for 12-24 hours. Give your kefir a few shakes or stirs after about 12 hours.
3. Once the coconut milk has thickened and has a slightly sour flavour, it has turned into kefir. Strain the mixture through a fine plastic strainer to remove the grains. Store kefir in the fridge and enjoy.
One is to rub lemon juice onto your lips before bedtime to bring out their natural color. After you have applied the lemon juice wait for them to dry and then moisturize them. Do this just once a week as lemon juice can dry your lips out.
The second is beetroot juice. By rubbing beetroot juice on your lips before going to bed you start to create a natural lip stain effect. You can either buy a jar of beetroots and place a small sponge inside to soak up the juice or cut a piece of beetroot and rub it on your lips — but this can be a little messy. Do this for 5 minutes and wash your hands afterwards. D0 this about three times a week and see if you can tell the difference!
This is such a lovely idea! Wheatgrass In Painted Pots from “Oh happy day” I’m definitely doing this, especially since it’s been snowing in Stockholm the past week. If spring won’t come to you, you just have to make you’re own!
Print out the USA map printable. Match up the letters to help you lay your map out. Be sure to start by putting your map out on large surface area.
Step Two Take one sheet at a time and layer it on top of a 8.5″ x 11″ piece of map. Cut out the map and return it to it’s spot. It is easy to turn this part into a giant jigsaw puzzle, so just try to stay organized.
Step Three After cutting out your map, pick each piece up, one at a time, and brush the back of each cut map with modge podge. Glue the map onto your chalkboard. Continue around until you have glued on every piece.
I love plants, and lot’s of them! And this is such an easy way to show them of (and it’s cheap and takes up no space what so ever…) I really want one of these in my kitchen so I can put all of my herbs in the pots… (I‘m in a basil phase right now.. I put in in/on everything)
