Ladies! Let me just start by saying I’ve had the best shaving experience of my life. I made my own shaving cream and it’s made a world of a difference. If I’m being honest, I don’t shave my legs all that often. Just if I have an extra special event or once the hair on my legs starts to get pulled by my pants…that’s the main influence, really. Since we’re heading into summer, I thought I’d share my DIY shaving cream recipe for you to try out.
If you’ve tried making our DIY Almond Milk, you’re left with all this leftover almond pulp. One of our favourite solutions to use up the excess pulp is making Almond Pulp Pancakes. The pulp is a great flavour booster and makes the most deliciously healthy flapjacks you’re sure to love.
Whether you’re dairy-free for health reasons or by choice, almond milk is a great dairy alternative that is equally delicious as it is good for you. It’s low in fat, high in fiber and tastes even better when you make it yourself. Our DIY almond milk has a level of freshness that no store brand can beat. Let’s get started!
Before I get into my fave beauty products of 2017, let me give you a little context. Everything I use is, to the best of my knowledge, cruelty free – that is my number one criteria. On a less serious note, I’m on a never ending quest to have perfect skin.
I consulted a MD who specializes in dermatology to get to the nitty gritty of my skin care routine. I’ve never had problematic skin, it’s a little sensitive and I’m just a secretly vain person. Here’s what I learned: water is your best friend. Your hair and skin can’t benefit from hydration if your body isn’t taken care of first. Pore size has a genetic component so you may never see the minimized results you’re looking for. And when it comes to your skincare routine, less is more.
With this knowledge in hand, here are the top five beauty products I’ve been crushing on so far this year.
I’m a huge fan of fall. I love the colours, the smells, the weather, but most of all, I love fall fashion. I get anxious for summer to end so I can start layering everything I own. Even if you’re not a fall fanatic like myself, I’m sure you can find something on this list to help perk up the chilly days ahead. From pumpkin spice to everything nice, here are our fall faves from the handmade community.
