Thoughts of You make all the Gray Skies Blue! Yesterday's Outfit of the Day includes a couple of special guests, so click on the "Read More" button below and see who joined in on the fun with me.
Considering yesterday was super busy for us - we still got a lot done and accomplished much. :) Here's our vlog from yesterday - Enjoy!
My friend Beth and I were talking about our different passions for different things - from Makeup to Hair Accessories and even hats and head gear. While I filmed a Hat Collection last year - I thought it would be cool to do an updated collection and treat this vid like it was a TAG. Here is my collection and you can check out Beth's collection here.
If you are unable to view the embedded video of my hat collection - you can click here to be taken to YouTube and view the video. And, if you have a hat collection that you would like to share - please be sure to leave as a video response, I would love to see your collection too.
Yesterday was a fun day with my boys as are any day really... so I posted a few short clips.
Happy Sunday Lovers. Gosh - it seems like forever since I wrote anything personal on my blog... I've been trying to catch up on reviews and posts requirements that I have had outstanding. Don't get me wrong - I LOVE what I do, I just can't believe how busy the last couple of months have been and how fast time has flown by.
Summer is just around the corner, which means I am super excited to be spending more time with my boys. My hubby works crazy hours and crazy times so we are happy to have my eldest home during the morning/early afternoon hours during summer break, so we can catch up on much needed family time. But, in the meantime - I've been busy with the boys, keeping them on their toes so that I can still manage to juggle my work from home duties, my blog, my YouTube channel and of course - Being a Full Time Mommy!
Thankfully - through all the craziness of Motherhood, I have been doing my best to document our journeys and have been posting vlogs on YouTube. I also post quick updates on Keek which has been allowing me to go back and reflect back on our fun times. There is a huge benefit of working from home and it is that I can stop what I'm doing at anytime, without anyone's approval and play with my children. PRICELESS!
My eldest has been my photographer in the last few looks, which not only allows me to get my work done but also to spend time with them too. I love being productive and multi-tasking is my middle name. lol And, since HoneyXO has been closed for a few months so I could focus on my busy photography schedule, I have been able to get a lot done. I'll be opening up HoneyXO again soon - in just a few weeks... so it's back to the groove again ;)
Hope you are all doing well. While motherhood and being a wife is a juggling act - trust that I would NEVER change it for anything in the whole World. I truly am blessed to have such a support system.
Talk to you all soon!
My sons and I headed over to the St. Joseph's Feast - an annual mini carnival to raise money for the church and pre-school. Since it had been so hot - I decided I wanted to dress comfortable. See what else I wore and what my face of the day looked like as well. Click READ MORE to see more pics and the video!
I give you all ingredients as well as the products needed and a quick demo in the video - but figured I would leave the list of ingredients here as well:
I like to eye-ball the amounts to see what type of consistency I would like. You can add more honey and coconut oil / extra virgin olive oil (EVOO) as you feel you need.
Granulated Sugar (approximately 2 tsps)
Honey - Organic (approximately 1 tsp)
Coconut Oil - Unrefined/Virgin/Organic (approximately 1 1/2 tsp) or supplement Coconut Oil with Extra Virgin Olive Oil - Organic
A container that you can keep your mixture in (preferably air tight)
You can throw out your mixture after each use if you want or store up to one week. If I do store it up to a week, I like to keep in the refrigerator or if I will use within 24 hours, I will leave near my sink in my bathroom. If you store in the fridge - please be sure to stir your mixture till it gets back to the right consistently and you can add more of your oil (coconut/EVOO) as you feel needed to make the mixture a smooth-paste like consistency once again.
If you are using on your face, please do not use more than once a week and do not scrub into your face, gently massage to remove dead skin and exfoliate. If using on your lips, do not scrub, use gently on the lips for a soft and plump pout.
I had been promising for a while now that I would do a "Weight loss Vlog" explaining what it is I am up to and the reason behind all of my Green Juice Recipe posts and Insanity photos. While going on a Weight loss journey is awesome - my goal is for a lifestyle change. Exercise, incorporating more eating into my diet since I really don't eat much and of course - losing weight. Check out what I have to say :D
