The summer months are fun but can be so damaging to your hair. With the sun, pools, and our carefree attitude, our hair often feels dry around this time. I have color so sometimes it’s like a double whammy! To help moisturize my hair during the summer months, I of course deep condition. But instead of just my favorite conditioner, I also add coconut oil. Y’all know how much I LOVE coconut oil! It really does wonders! Sometimes I will put straight coconut oil on my hair before I shampoo and let it sit for a few hours or over night. Other times I will add the coconut oil to one of my favorite conditioners ( Paul Mitchell Super Charged or Clear Shea Butter Conditioner, purchase HERE ), let it sit for about 20-30 minutes then rinse, mold and style. Either way, my hair feels softer and more moisturized. I know we can be very busy and on the go in the summer but please take time to care for your hair! XOXO
Hey everyone! So I get asked all the time about the green smoothie recipe that I drink. Well, here it is! Now I’m not the originator of this recipe, I use the famous Glowing Green Smoothie recipe by Kimberly Snyder. I LOVE this version of the green smoothie because well it was the first one I ever tried and its soooo good! I prefer smoothie’s over juicing because you get all of the nutrients from your fruits and vegetables. Juicing extracts some nutrients and leave the others. I know some folks may see different, but to each it’s own.
Here’s what you’ll need: ( This makes 60 ounces )
1 1/12 cups of water
1 head organic romaine lettuce, chopped
1/2 head large bunch or 3/4 small bunch organic spinach
3-4 stalks organic celery
1 organic apple, cored and chopped
1 organic pear, core and chopped
1 organic banana
Juice of 1/2 organic lemon
** I also add juice of 1/2 organic orange
Ok so first, I do not have a top of the line blender and that’s really not required. I have a Cuisinart blender but it works really good until I get the Vitamix that I really want. Not as smooth but it works!
Add your water and chopped romaine lettuce and spinach first. Let that blend then add your celery, apple, pear and blend again. Add your banana, lemon juice and orange juice last and there you have it, an amazing Glowing Green Smoothie!
This post is LONG overdue y’all! I’ve been getting A LOT of questions about my news glasses that I got a few months ago. I was due for my yearly eye exam so I decided to get some new glasses along with my contacts. I went to America’s Best Eyewear again because I’m on the 3 year eye exam plan with them. I originally wanted a pair of classis black Ray Ban frames but I decided to so something different and go with some color. While looking around some more, I found these 7 For Mankind frames and instantly fell in love! The frames are a brown and baby blue color at the top and fades to all baby blue at the bottom. They are also bigger than my older frames so its gives my face a different look. I’m really not sure if these frames are still available at America’s Best but you can Google 7 For Mankind glasses and they may have them available online. Glad you guys like them!
