DIY Spa and Beauty Recipes

After walking 10 miles a day in Spain this summer, I realized that my skin needed a little TLC. I love making my own beauty products with essential oils because  (1) it saves money, (2) they are chemical-free, and (3) they smell great! I always seem to make a Lemon Body Scrub or a Coconut Lime Scrub, but I wanted to switch it up a bit. These DIY spa and skin care recipes are perfect for your summer beauty regime!

Spring Break

I was so happy to be at home with my kids for spring break. I even kept my son home from preschool all week. However, today – was my last day of break. I go back tomorrow. Woo hoo!

Too many tears, fighting, and ungratefulness going on here in this house with these two children of mine. Friday I kept my daughter and her two friends all day. We went to Beauty and the Beast and to play in the park after. Then my daughter cried after her 8 hour playdate was over. REALLY?!   Saturday, we bought her a new scooter with light up wheels. She cried when we went to the park with it. REALLY?! This morning I woke up early, and she and I made homemade vegan paleo donuts (I’ll post the recipe soon). Well, it turns out she didn’t want vanilla icing – she wanted vanilla donuts. My son didn’t want long john’s – he wanted donuts with holes. Tears. Really?! After they ate them, they said they were the best donuts ever! #crazychildren.

I couldn’t hang in there any longer today. My 4 year-old son (who is normally a sweet boy) told me that I was the worst mom ever and he hated me because I turned off the Wii. MOM IS DONE.

I applied some joy and gratitude and made it until bedtime. Thank goodness for oils and a sweet friend who came over and brought some wine. It’s a good reminder of whyI work outside of the home. My hat is off to stay-at-home-parents. Tomorrow I will be grateful for my job.
