DIY Coffee Sugar Scrub

I haven’t shared a DIY skin care recipe in a while, so I figured I should change that up! If you want to learn how to make your own honey aspirin mask or green tea toner, make sure you go check those out too! :]

Much to the shock(?) of my former classmates and current …

Get Awarded for Healthy Living with Achievemint

Do you track your workouts? Meals? Steps? Weight?

I recently discovered Achievemint, an app/site that gives you points for healthy activities. You can earn $10 for every 10,000 points you earn!

I don’t know about you, but the prospect of getting awarded for healthy living, especially with things I’m already doing, was rather intriguing.

4-Ingredient Lavender Coconut Oil Lotion

This cold weather sure isn’t agreeing with me. Granted, it’s a full 10 degrees warmer than where I spent my last couple winters up in the mountains of West Virginia, but…I don’t think I was made for the cold. I’m likely going to have to move back to the west coast or to Hawai’i after …

DIY 2-Ingredient Apple Cider Vinegar Toner

Fun fact (in case you weren’t already aware)! I’m somewhat of a crunchy granola girl in that I’m a big fan of green living. Whenever possible, I try to  reduce my carbon footprint by walking/biking/carpooling/using public transportation, recycling/re-purposing items, and making my own products.

Go Green with the DivaCup!

Have you ever heard of the DivaCup? My college roommate used one of these back in the day, and had nothing but glowing reviews about it.

At the time, I wasn’t quite comfortable with even using tampons, so I felt like using a silicone cup would be way too huge of a leap, so I took …

Staying Summer Strong Through A Summer Slump

I haven’t talked much about fitness lately mostly because…well, I haven’t really been working out. My “summer slump” is really just my lack of a regular workout schedule (although I’d like to think that moving furniture/a billion boxes and walking a ton of miles almost daily has to count for something!).

After falling down the stairs …
