The post I picked from last week was from Baby Bump and Beyond.  Heather shared 5 Easy Ways to Sneak Veggies into Kid Favorites.  I know parents are always looking for ways to get their kids to eat more veggies.  I have two teenagers who do not like raw vegetables.  I make smoothies and freeze them because my son can still detect the spinach in the smoothie unless it's frozen!

Brown Sugar and Vanilla Body Scrub{Guest Post}



Today Annette is guest posting for me from Fiber Artsy.  Please check out her site!

Brown Sugar & Vanilla Body Scrub

Last week I shared with you my super yummy Lemon Sugar Scrub Recipe and I promised you the Brown Sugar & Vanilla Body Scrub so here it is.This scrub not only exfoliates your skin but it moisturizes at the same time. Plus, it’s made with all natural ingredients that you probably already have in your kitchen.




1 1/2 Cups Light Brown Sugar
1 Cup White Sugar
1 Cup Oil (your choice, Olive and Sunflower work well)
1 TB Pure Vanilla Extract





Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix well. If the mixture is too dry, add a bit more oil. You want it moist but not soupy wet.




Spoon the scrub into a sealable container such as a mason jar and enjoy! Works great on the whole body and smells delicious!



Do you have a favorite body recipe? Please share

Are You Ready to Take Your Business to the Next Level?



Yesterday I had the great pleasure of attending the iBloom online spring conference.  It was five hours of great teaching and inspiration!  I learned a ton of stuff about being the expert in my niche. I just love being able to attend online business conferences from the comfort of my own home! I've also decided to make a few changes in focus on my blog.  I will be talking about this later in future posts.

If you are serious about taking your business to the next level then this is for you. The founder of iBloom Kelly Thorne Gore will be partnering with you.  There will be encouragement, support, and collaboration. There will be four in depth training over a course of two weeks. You will also have access to a Facebook mastermind group.  This is such a great way to bounce ideas off of other people and to support one another in their businesses. I cannot wait! You can click on the above graphic for more information.  Is it time to take your business to the next level?
