White pants are refreshing any time of the season. Well, white in general, people say no white after labor day but I think white in the winter is a breath of fresh air.
2 // Stripes
Stripes will truly go with anything; it’s the easiest pattern to mix and match. You can do just about anything with it to reflect your personal style.
3 // Plaid
Although plaid is pretty big this fall it’s really a pattern that is always “in” and “on trend.” Plaid is also one of those patterns that are pretty easy to mix and match with others, as long as you pick the right color combinations.
4 // Polka Dots
Polka dots is truly one of my absolute favorites. I think they can be dressed up and can come off super preppy or they can be dressed down and can be worn with a “street style” feel. You’ll never go wrong with polka dots.
5 // Your Little Black Dress
Yes, your beautiful, sassy, sexy little black dress; it is in and always will be. This is something that you can wear any time of the year and it is perfectly acceptable!
This morning Matt and I had a pretty freaking fantastic breakfast. We attempted and I say attempted because I’ve never made an omelet before and not knowing to only put 2 or 3 eggs in I decide to put in 7 because it seemed like the right thing to do?? Not sure.. But I did it anyway. So the omelet turned out gigantic but luckily my parents bought us these circular egg cooker things so it was easier cut the omelet to fit the bagels. Thanks, Mom and Dad! Anyways, these don’t look the prettiest but they are the yummiest. They were so delicious and I through in a ton of cheese which anything is better with cheese in my opinion. They’re not the healthiest but yah know 80/20 and you’re good.
Recipe / Ingredients
Hand full of spinach, half of a large pepper, 1/4 cup of chopped onion and cheese. (A lot of cheese)
Now just make an omelet like you would, I’m not going to tell you how to make an omelet because I completely winged it if you’d like a tutorial on the right way to make an omelet you can read here. 🙂
Then I used the little circle cut out egg things like I mentioned above ^^^ and used those to cut out the perfect circle to fit on the bagel. You can prep your bagel however you’d like. We have a NuWave so we wrapped the bagels in tinfoil and let the bagels warm up for about 10 min so that they’d be warm but not too crispy.
Annnnnd that’s about it! Hope you guys enjoy this and hope you give it a try!
I know it looks like poo ^^^ but hear me out..
So today we’re going to get a little personallll or a little TMI. Since it’s getting a little cooler the skin is getting a bit dry and itchy but when I read an easy DIY using coconut oil, ground coffee, cinnamon and honey I thought i’d give it a go. Guess what, VOILA it works wonderful!
So here are the benefits,
Coffee is full of antioxidants which makes it a great anti-inflammatory. The caffeine brings out moisture from your skin to help it look softer and firm. It’s a great exfoliant removing the dead skin cells off of your skin making it super soft and bright!
Coconut oil is full of vitamins and minerals which will make your skin super soft and moisturized. Heres a great article on the benefits of Coconut Oil and you can read my post I did here about 50 uses of coconut oil.
This helps your skin clear up from bacteria it brings your blood to the surface and will smooth out fine lines.
Honey is super soothing to the skin and also (research says) that honey can help speed up the healing of wounds. Honey also helps why dry/combo skin. It’s an antibacterial so helps with acne. It’s also full of antioxidants so great for aging and is very moisturizing so helps your skin have that glow we all strive for. One more plus, helps to clarify pores, it opens them up so it’s easy to unclog.
After using this scrub (if using on the face) It’d be great to do an at home facial mask to help clarify the skin even more.
First things first,
Measure out your ingredients.
1/2 cup of coconut oil
1 1/2 tablespoons of cinnamon
3 tablespoons of ground coffee
2 tablespoons of honey
Mix all ingredients together with a fork, you can add more or less of things, which ever you prefer!
Hope you enjoyed this super simple DIY and Happy Scrubbing!
