Almond & Rose Bath Wash

I found a delicious smelling bath wash! Its homemade too, so its all organic and YOU know how its made so no need to worry if its harmful to you or the environment! All the ingredients are easy to find and the recipe is easy to make! I have two books of recipes so I'll be posting beauty recipes more often (:


1 ounce of Sweet Almonds

1/4 ounce of Bitter Almonds

3/4 cup of Rose water

1/4 teaspoon of Epsom Salt


Pound the almonds with a mortar and pestle until a paste is formed. Do not let them "oil." Add the remaining ingredients and mix thoroughly. Pour the mixture into a bottle, cork tightly, and put aside for future use. To use, add 2 tablespoons of the liquid to your bath water.

When I have the words like this, it means I copied it exactly from the book and I'm giving credit to them (: The book is called Bath & Beauty Splash and its by Harriet Hubbard Ayer. You can find it at Barns and Noble. I bought mine for only eight dollars and it has 100 recipes! Also in case you do not know what a Mortar and a Pestle is it looks like this.

Tip(s) of The Day!

Are you guys sick of those "very attractive" bikini bumps you get when shaving your bikini line? I've learned a way to prevent/treat the bumps around that area. When shaving that delicate area sometimes the razor and your skin can cause friction between the two. This is what causes the bumps to appear. Not only are they ugly, they can be painful too! First off, when shaving make sure you have a razor that is not dull. I like to have a razor for that area and one for my legs. Another thing I like to do is use my hair conditioner around the bikini line (not inside, obviously, that would burn!) This allows the razor to glide along your skin and leaving it feel very soft. Once your done with shaving and you all dry take a deodorant (a clean one, just buy a mini one at Target for a dollar!) and glide gently across your bikini line and once again not inside your area. I use this tip every single time I get out of the shave. Now the results may vary, but I have found that it works on almost everyone I have told. If you have sensitive skin stick to a fragrance-free deodorant. I like to use a mini Dove Go Fresh Deodorant.

Summer Hair Tips!

Summer is now here! I wanted to share some great Summer hair tips and styles!

A really cute way to style your hair during the summer without much effort is to braid your hair and sleep on it and when you wake up you'll have perfect beachy waves! Then just scrunch with some hairspray and shine serum and off you go!

To protect your hair (and scalp) from the sun, use a misting sunscreen to spray a small amount over your head, then just let it fall onto your hair and scalp.

Before your day, when your getting ready use a heat protecting spray all over your hair. Even if you're not using hot tools on your hair it can still protect it from the heat outside.

Rinse your hair with cold water before entering a chlorine pool. The chlorine can soak into your hair follicles and it can damage your hair. Rinsing it before hand allows your hair to soak up and have no room left to soak up the damaging pool water.

During the Summer you must use a deep conditioner at least once a week. I tend to use mine twice a week during the Summer. The sun is very hard on our hair and it needs to R&R at the end of the week!

Avoid using hair ties that have metal clasps during the Summer. The metal can react with pool chemicals, break fragile hair, and get really hot from the sun!

Before you go to bed, take a shower and dry your hair until its just damp. Then twist it up into a bun and sleep on it. In the morning before you take it out hairspray all around your hair. Then take out your bun and finger tousle it and you have tousled, voluminous hair!

Jojoba oil works wonders on frizzy hair.

Wear a hat when in the sun for longer than 5 hours!

Try using organic products this will help your hair in the longer! Also don't forget that hair can get sun burned too and the way it heals is you have to get it trimmed!
