Lunch Bags

So let’s talk about lunch! I always bring my own lunch to work, but Tupperware in a plastic bag just isn’t that fun. I love the classic paper bag, but it’s not the most reusable (I mean use it 3 times and it’s falling apart..) So I found some cute reusable alternatives!

Monday

The last two weeks (and probably this one) have been crazy, with uni and working I have practically no life left… With everything in my life going in ultraspeed I forgot that yesterday was fathersday… So today we are celebrating!!! We have cake, flowers and a great dinner planed! My sister an I went all out this year.. (we felt bad for forgetting… hrm..)

(I have to do some of these now!!)

I’ve tried doing the sun salute every morning and it really makes you feel better in the morning… Try it!!

This was probably one of our more random and weird posts… but this is what my brain looks like today.. So…

Avocado & Oil Hair mask

On my evening tryingtoavoidtheworkthatishouldbedoing internet time I found this hair beauty tip.. sounds great!!

“I have a hair mask trick! It’s not an exact science, but here’s my method: I take one super ripe avocado; halve, peel and de-seed it and put it in a bowl. I mash it with my hands but you could probably use a tool of some sort. Then add about ¼ cup of olive oil (really just enough to thin the avocado paste out a bit — it should be like a paste, not soup). Then I mix in 2 eggs. Once thoroughly mixed I apply generously all over my hair — I focus on the roots because that’s where I need it most, but some people might feel like the tips is where they want to concentrate the mixture. Next wrap your hair in plastic wrap and let sit! I usually do about 20 minutes, then get in the shower and stand and let the heat give the mask a final kick. Then I take the plastic wrap off and rinse! I shampoo after because I just had food in my hair, but I’ve heard some people don’t. It’s a personal choice. That once every 6 weeks is how my hair has gone from brown to red to brown to blonde to black and doesn’t look totally fried!”
