Spicy Pumpkin Latte!

Since pumpkins are everywhere now, I decided I should take this opportunity and post this recipe. First of all, I didn't think this would turn out to be a success at the beginning. Because I had forgotten pumpkins were stinky (except for some canned pumpkins) and when I smelled my canned pumpkin, I thought it was bad. I thought, 'Oh, no...this won't turn out right.

Frosted Carob Peanut Butter Dog Cupcakes!

This past Wednesday marked one year for my sister having her dog. She decided to celebrate today. My sister couldn't decide how to make his I gave her some advice and together we came up with a carob/ peanut butter flavored cupcake. This dog cupcake has no added sugar (unless you count honey as sugar). As some dog treats have sugar in them, which I think isn't good for them (just like chocolate). And, we put a frosting on top we knew he'd love (beef flavored)

Coconut Oil: A Super Food

Shown above: How To Make An All Natural Coconut Lip Balm from a previous post.

Coconut oil has some really amazing benefits! It's like a super food. It has so many benefits that a person can't even begin to name all of them. It's completely natural, too. You can buy a jar and use it for almost everything! Such as cooking, baking, personal care and more.

Pretty and Pink Mascara (Video)


This is a very easy mascara to make! And, a wonderful alternative to regular mascara. It will really increase the length of you lashes. It's also quite cost efficient, too. Sometimes when you make your own mascara, they can be pricey. Or, you have to order them online. But, you should have most of these ingredients on hand!  I made the beet powder slicing them, dehydrating, and then blending them finely in a coffee grinder.

Lemon Egg Face Mask (Video)


I have a thing with face masks! This is a great face masks for those with large pores, acne, and more! Lemon and eggs are great for the skin. This face mask will tighten your pores. I love using lemon on my face in any way! It leaves me feeling refreshed. After you try the face mask, you'll notice your face has a healthy glow to it. But, if you have freckles, lemon may cause some of them to leave!

Irresistible Peanut Butter Squares!

These peanut butter squares are so delicious that you may not want to share them! In fact, they're irresistibly good! In fact, I don't even like peanut butter unless it's with something else.  You may even want to double the recipe. One of my favorite parts of making it is licking the bowl. :) They taste best when you warm them up, as they're more chewy that way...but even better when fresh out of the oven. Mmm!

Orange Coconut Cleanser

I love coconut oil! That's why I put it on my face every night before bed. I don't use too much. Just a little, so it doesn't make my face too oily. I live it on for a couple minutes or so and then I wash it off with cold water. I feel great afterwards. Coconut oil is great for you skin. It's also great for aging skin! Yes, you heard me right! It's even safe for babies and young children.
