Spring Into Healthier Hair And Skin

Spring Into Healthier Hair And Skin - Love This Hair Toxin-Free Hair Care & Dermal Restoration Daily Restorative Cream

Beauty Brite Disclosure


The calendar insists that Spring is right around the corner. I’m not sure I believe it because the weather has been so crazy lately. Seriously, we’ve gone from heavy rain to 60 degrees with clear and sunny skies to several inches of snowfall — all in the span of about a week. Typical Kentucky weather — Mother Nature does love to keep us on our toes!

Caring for the health of our skin and hair (especially during these coldest, bleakest months of the year) can be a challenge. It’s not only just the actual physical act of using products that help keep our hair and skin looking its best, it’s also the mental motivation to do so that can seem in short supply. As we look forward to the transition of the seasons to warmer, milder weather I’m using Love This­® Hair Toxin-Free Hair Care and Dermal Restoration products to prepare for when I must shed my hooded jackets and don shorter sleeved, more open-necked shirts.

Beauty Brite Disclosure

2017 was a big year of transition for our family! I finished school and started work in the field of my certification. This meant leaving work in the legal field and transitioning into public education. It’s been a change that I was nervous about at first, but I’m so happy I did it. I love being a teacher and working for our local school district. It’s been a real adventure to work with such incredible kids! Nothing is more difficult, but so rewarding!… [read more]

Creating And Canning Seasonal Flavors

Creating And Canning Seasonal Flavors-Ball Collection Elite Sharing Mason Jars-Chameleon Cold Brew Coffee

Beauty Brite Disclosure

Canning jars can be used for many purposes: to can and store foods, to combine ingredients to create meals, salad dressings, or marinades; as serving containers; and to store and organize any number of small household goods such as buttons, pens and pencils, spices and oils. The uses are just about endless and are only limited within the bounds of your imagination.

I enjoy making jams and jellies as well as canning pickles, so these are the ways I most often use canning jars. But, I also have one that I keep spools of thread and sewing needles in for quick access to materials to mend garments and stuffed animals that develop holes with repeated use.

Ball Collection Elite Design Series Sharing Mason Jars

Canning jars make great gift receptacles for many types of small gifts. Not only do you minimize waste since wrapping paper or gift bags aren’t required, but you can use other small and simple things to dress it up such as ribbon, twine, and/or a gift tag. This minimalist approach allows you to let the gift itself (rather than the wrapping) take center stage. In addition, gift recipients can keep the jar to re-use in their own home in any way that is useful to them.

I’m going to show you two ways that I like to use canning jars utilizing the new Ball® Collection Elite Design Series Sharing Jars. First, I’m going to use one to combine the ingredients to make a delicious fall drink using Mocha Chameleon Cold-Brew Coffee. Then, I will illustrate how I use them to make gift-worthy food items, like the Spiced Pear Butter I recently made, that are great gifted on their own or as an item in a larger gift basket to friends, family, co-workers and acquaintances alike….

Everything Apple Extends To Your Beauty Routine - Apple Infused Beauty-G. M. Collins-The Mane Choice-Jane Iredale-Hydropeptide Cleansing Gel-Juice Beauty

Beauty Brite DisclosureI have a fondness for apples. They’re one of my favorite snack foods. I use them in jams and jellies and as fun, unexpected ingredients in recipes. And candles? Don’t even get me started on that subject. I’m a bona fide candle freak! I love tropical, forest and fruit scents alike — and apple scented candles are right up there near the top of my wish list all the time.

I have apple-scented lotions that I love to use to help with my dry skin, apple-scented body washes, and have purchased shampoo and conditioners that feature this sweet fruit scent, as well. But, these beauty staples aren’t the only ones that make excellent use of apple extracts. Read on to learn about a few new apple-scented beauty finds I’ve discovered!… [read more]
