Juicy!

It seems as though JUICY 🥤 is the “word of the day” at this time for our skin! Social media, magazines, celebrities and shopping channels tout it as something we need to attain. But I’m a bit confused.

I don’t know about you but I’m not sure why we want it. Nor how we get “juicy skin”

I love healthy looking pretty skin and enjoy the rituals for taking care of my skin. But coveting “juicy” is not one I necessarily want.

However I do love juicing and the fun pretty potions I can create and whip up in what I husband calls… “My Beauty Kitchen”

I make them with all kinds of fruits, veggies, and even herbs. So delicious! Whether I want something fruity, very veggie or for a burst of energy you can make some awesome drinks. Including something sweet!

This afternoon I made a yummy and bodacious …

I love the beauty & potassium from bananas!

“Banana 🍌 Split” … not what you may think. No ice cream and no cherry on top.

What you will need for this recipe:

2 fresh ripe bananas

1 1/2 cups of coconut milk

1 teaspoon of maple syrup or agave nectar

4-5 ice cubes, crushed

Place the above in a blender. Mix it until smooth, creamy and dreamy!

*Sprinkle coconut 🥥 flakes on top!

I’m crazy for coconut! 🥥

Add a mini drink umbrella & festive paper straw if you’d like.

Enjoy this cooling and refreshing milkshake like smoothie! Great for your sweetie or the whole family.

Lime,Sugar and Coconut!

I feel like TRAVELING and enjoying life again… I want to go on a cruise! But since we can’t quite do that yet I thought I’d do the next best thing. Make a tropical hand and foot scrub.

Since I LOVE my clients. I am sharing this recipe with them and giving them some mini sample jars of this lovely scrub too.

If you own a business do you love to share recipes and beauty tips with your clients too?

Here is a simple recipe that is so easy to make yet gently exfoliates, brightens the skin and makes the skin so silky!

After all it is sandal season again.

I LOVE the way this feels on the skin and my heels will look amazing too.

It even refreshes a pedicure and manicure too. Give your hands and feet some love ❤️. Guys will love it too!

Simply apply a scoop of this tropical 🌴 delight on your freshly washed hands and rub in. Go in circular motions. Then rinse with a wet and warm hand towel after leaving on at least 10 minutes.

Next apply to your feet and repeat.

I find this scrub lasts at least a week. I put it in the fridge. I pull out of the fridge and allow it to warm with the room temperature. Feels so cool and refreshing when you apply it. Especially on a hot summer 🌞 day.

Your skin will glow and the natural ingredients make it even better!

Yummy!

Yesterday I went grocery 🛒 shopping…we put it off and couldn’t wait any longer.

It it is a battleground out there for food and drink! I couldn’t find so many things and we paid a fortune for paper towels! $22.00 for six rolls 💴

I wanted coconut water 💦 but could not find any. So, I decided to make it at home. I was craving all things coconut, like a coconut granola mix, coconut 🥥 and açaí bowl and coconut water.

I also love the coconut chips from Trader Joe’s… they are delicious to snack on and remind me of my time spent in Hawaii.

I loved the quaint little stands in the roadside that sold them fresh and twisted from the

2 Teaspoons of Thai lite Coconut 🥥 Milk

22 oz. of bottled water (Not tap)

A healthy DIY and hydration ritual you’ll so enjoy!

Add ice to a pretty tall glass of it and maybe float a cherry 🍒 on top and enjoy!
