Attempt 1: Unscented Aloe ScrubΒ 

Aloe Scrub

I’m taking on a new project creating a line of high quality natural products incorporating high quality essential oils.  

Today I wanted to make a soothing and moisturizing gentle scrub. It ended up more of a shave gel, but with some tweaks and fine tuning I think we will be ready by October stay tuned for progress. 

Today’s batch was:

half of an aloe leaf 

1 tbls. organic coconut oil 

1 1/4 c. granulated sugar. 

Next time I will blend it and it needed more sugar! Practice makes perfect! 

Easter Sunday. 🐣🐰

Today was very lowkey,  woke up leisurely got ready and visited with my mother-in-law & sister- in-law exchanged epic Easter baskets and laughed awhile. Went to Wegmans got tulips 🌷,  dinner 🍴,  and beer 🍻! Enjoying some libations and music with my love! Enjoy the small things in life in the end its all we have. So stop and smell the flowers!  πŸ’–πŸ’—

Sunday January 29 2017

This is my journey, I’ve committed I’m not washing my hair with shampoo for 3 weeks. I’m not wetting it until I absolutely have to then I’m only using a conditioner.

Chels colored and styled it Monday then the weather turned and slushmageddon descended upon State College (I wasn’t prepared for it to get so bad so early) but luckily for me I was wearing my gold Calvin Klein raincoat πŸ’πŸ’ 

So since that day I’ve oiled it and had the curls refreshed and locked in with the hairspray then I combed it meticulously because my scalp sheds from coloring 😬 and have only finger brushed it and put some oil in. 
The plan wash it February 13th like a good scrub, I’m going to have bad hair days but going to document the whole process!  

Hello, July I’m so ready for you! πŸŒŠπŸŒ΄πŸŒ…

2016 was an absolute wonderful year for me. I’m going to say my favorite part was being in Washington DC & Cape Cod, Mass. I have been so busy I never really posted anything about July,  my birthday or how amazing life was then!  So let’s kick it back to a much warmer time and wish for the heat we all complained about! 

First: I’m going to talk about all the fun I had in the beginning of July. 

I had July 4th off and spent it my favorite way (with Brent eating πŸ” and drinking🍹🍻). I know I’m lame didn’t watch the fireworks,  but we listened to Katy Perry’s Firework 😹. So after the 4th I worked legitimately worked July 6-23, 18 straight days. In that time I did lots (and lots) of nails. My customers are amazing thoughtful individuals who are always making me laugh. 

After the 18 days it was time for much needed vacation.

We began the trip to DC on Brent’s birthday (I slept for most of it). We stopped at a few goodwills and even looked around in savers. Finally we arrive in DC and it’s time for Battleground πŸ’— 

That’s the closest we had ever been to the ring, I would say Brent had a pretty incredible birthday!  We spent the next day in DC exploring during a heatwave (not our brightest move). I got a pedi (probably won’t do that again) then bought new sneakers (got blisters from walking in new shoes in swealtering heat). It was so so so hot, by the time we got to the White House it felt like we might die of heat exhaustion (even with water)

White House

While we were at the White House we were forced to the other side of the road because someone was leaving. Our journey back to the hotel was hot and I got grumpy. 

All the excitement I could muster.

I ended up a little heat sick we rested some,  then went for lunch which perked me up enough to go to the hotels refreshment hour, I probably had 5 tequila sunrises and Brent had 5 yeunglings, I was so drunk I ate nachos in bed and passed out! 

We then traveled to Cape Cod what was supposed to be an 8 hour trip turned into 14 hours thanks to a long detour through all 5 boroughs,  tired and miserable we finally got to the hotel.

Kitty Snow Day!

I have six lovely kitties,  I’ve tried to capture photos of them dressed in Holiday outfits for our Christmas Cards.  Cats don’t enjoy clothes, and really aren’t photogenic unless they want to be. So on this snowy January day I decided to dress 3 of them and take snow pictures,  it didn’t work so well. 

Hatteras’ best shot

Baby’s best shot (winner of best shot overall)

Chai’s best shot

Baby and Hatteras frequently visit outside, but rarely in the snow. Baby handled this like a champion,  Hatteras wasn’t impressed and didn’t enjoy being tossed in the snow,  but nothing compares to how Chai reacted. Chai almost never goes outside especially in the snow,  she sat in the driveway crying before she started making her way back inside. Needless to say we will be trying again with green screen. Everyone got a cold medicine and they’re currently resting in their favorite places. They won’t be visiting the outside unless they want to.
