Pampered Wedding Shower

8 Oct

Pamper shower 3 Pamper shower 4

I was invited to a “pampered’ wedding shower a few months ago and thought that theme was such a cute idea!  Then I had to think of what ‘pampered’ meant to me!

So apparently pampered means vodka, a traveler mug, bath salts, coconut lotion, a face mask, chocolate and a nail file.  Loved putting this gift together!  Oh, also, I am obsessed with bins, so I put it in a bin!

Here is a pic of my latest VoxBox below!  I am slowly starting to try all of my VoxBox products and will be updating this post as I have more opinions.

Blueberry almonds: My husband ate the almonds in .5 seconds, so I am just going to assume that those are delicious! LOL!  Or maybe he was starving??  Probably a little of both!

ProFoot Pedi-Rock: I gave this a whirl the other night in the bath and it worked really well!  Its much easier to use because its not as hard as a pumice stone.  This product is more of a soft scrub and it fits in your hand nicely due to the shape.  I will try it a few more times and keep you updated!

Playtex Tampons:  I am pregnant, so I wont be able to give you any info on these for quite some time.  🙂

Acure Brightening Facial Scrub

This face scrub is amazing!  Its bright green because it has sea kelp and chlorella in it to help with cell growth.  Its very exfoliating, yet gentle.  I put it straight on my Clairisonic scrub brush and go!  My face feels super clean and soft when I use it!

Ball Jar Herb Garden

Kerr Jar Herb 1

 

Kerr Jar Herb 2

 

Kerr Jar Herb 3

 

I was brainstorming ways to grow herbs for my husband, whom is a chef, and yes, I am spoiled I know, and I came up with this idea.  We drilled holes in the bottom of a Ball jar that we had in the cupboard, added some white rocks that we collected on the beach near our home, then dirt, then the thyme!  Boom!  Cute planter for herbs.  I am super pumped to be growing herbs verse paying $5+ for a package that we use half of and throw out.  Super wasteful!  Plus, its cute and sits in our glass window off the kitchen which is perfect for growing!  I plan on doing several of these!  Parsley is next!

Happy growing!

Put Your Lettuce Bottom In Water And Watch It Grow!

24 Jun

IMG_0795

 

When I first heard that you can grow lettuce by simply putting your lettuce bottom in water, I was thinking to myself ‘why in gods name doesn’t everyone do this?!’  How is this not standard in every household to just grow yourself a head of lettuce with the bottom of the last one?!  Maybe the lettuce is bitter?  Maybe it doesn’t work?  I am not sure, but I will tell you one thing, I am giving it a whirl!  See the pic above.  To be continued as far as the the lettuce taste…..
