PRETTY PLEASE: Homemade Green Tea Travel Toner

I’ve always had very oily skin which is a curse and a blessing. The natural oils do seem to help ward off wrinkles but I’m forever blotting my skin. For years I stopped using facial toner but as my skin ages, I find myself using it again. It seems to help combat the oiliness without drying my skin too much.

ETCETERAS: Oatmeal Lavender Bath Soak

Oatmeal Lavender Bath Soak - Homemade Bath Salts Even though winter is milder here in Southern California than in a lot of places, it still takes a toll on my skin. Believe it or not, we do turn on the heater every now and then especially in the chilly evenings. With spring around the corner, it’s time to start thinking or dreaming about shorts, flip flops and tank tops.

This post is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group™ and Lean Cuisine, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #HonestlyGood #ad

Lean Cuisine Honestly Good and healthy eating tips via homework | carolynshomework.comSeveral years ago I came to the realization that I had to change the way I eat. I had reached the point where my metabolism had changed – as in slowed down. I could no longer diet for a week and then go back to normal eating because I would just be on a constant seesaw of gaining and losing those few extra pounds. I tried cutting back a little at each meal. Smaller portions for breakfast, lunch & dinner. It sounded like a good plan except that I found out I have no portion control.

Here’s what I posted on Tuesday, January 8th:

The Inspiration Board: good friends, good health, good pie

What’s the best reason to celebrate with good friends? Good health. And so, this weekend we gathered at my friend Michella’s house to celebrate her renewed good health. Her chemo is over and her smile is back.

We all enjoyed the hot summer day under a huge shade tree – hugs, happiness, assorted tacos and beverages buried in ice in an old clawfoot tub. Perfect.

The icing on the cake came in the form of a homemade cherry pie that my friend Vicky baked for me. Perfect crust, tart cherries and a sugary crumb topping. Mmmmm.

The “slice of heaven” on the plate was the piece I just had.

I hope your weekend was filled with goodness too.
