Homemade PSL ( The Easy Way )

Hi hi! Wow I honestly can’t believe how little time there is in a day. Between this blog of mine, my job during the day, school at night and somehow trying to keep up with all the relationships in my life and I don’t know find time to eat…. IT’S NUTS OVER HERE YA’LL. But thats ok, it will all be worth it when I’m a practicing esthetician with my own spa one day very soon. I mean, how exciting does that sound?! But, I just wanted to formally apologize for not posting last week. I pinkie promise I will never let it happen again, ok? Ok.

So anywhoo, one of my all time favorite things about fall & the whole Holiday season in general ( besides EVERYTHING ) is all of the fun festive coffees for sale everywhere. The thing is, I’m not a millionaire, which makes spending $5 on a fun festive coffee every morning a liiiiiittle difficult. And we all need coffee, especially on a Monday, am I right?

SO last year I was just browsing through Trader Joes ( because seriously that’s one of my favorite ways to de stress I’m not even kidding ) and I saw their cute little jar of Pumpkin Pie Spice. I just had to buy it. I started to putting it in my coffee every morning and oh my god ya’ll, it tastes just like a Pumpkin Spice Latte.

Glasses: Zenni. Kitty Cat Mug: Anthropologie ( a gift from my best friend last year! But still in stock! )

If you don’t happen to have a Trader Joes near you I’ve noticed they sell different brands of Pumpkin Pie Spice at other grocery stores like Kroger and Target as well. Or you could just make it super easy on yourself and order it on Amazon :).

Literally ya’ll, all I do is brew my coffee like normal in our coffee pot, pour cream into my mug ( we like to use heavy whipping cream or coconut creamer, it’s just so much creamier and yummier than half and half, i know it’s not very healthy but i don’t careeeee LOL ) pour in the coffee, and then sprinkle kind of an obnoxious amount of Pumpkin Pie Spice on top. Bam! Homemade PSL, basically for free.

homemade_psl

I have more festive coffee hacks like this for winter drinks as well, so be on the lookout for those coming in a few weeks. That reminds me, like can ya’ll believe October is basically over?! What?! This year is flying by.

What are ya’lls favorite fall coffee drinks?! Have you tried the Pumpkin Pie Spice trick?

 

DIY Coffee Scrub Aka Cellulite Blaster

DIY_coffee_scrubI don’t want to make some crazy assumption here… but I’m pretty positive that we all have a little bit of cellulite somewhere on our bodies. I guess it’s just a kind of a part of being a woman?

Personally, I’ve found that even when I am working out very regularly and eating like a total champ, I still have this little section of cellulite just right underneath my butt cheeks. TOTALLY ANNOYING.

I’ve read for years about how using a coffee scrub on your effected areas ( when combined with eating healthy & exercising of course ) can help drastically reduce the appearance of your cellulite. But is it true?? Could it really be that easy?

Well, I figured why don’t we all try it out together and find out for ourselves?!  I scoured Pinterest for the best DIY coffee scrub recipes to come up with my own that resulted in this:

DIY Coffee Scrub Aka Cellulite Blaster:

1/2 cup of brown sugar.

1 cup of coffee grounds ( don’t use decaf!! )

3 tbs raw organic coconut oil.

All you do is combine these ingredients together and store them in a glass container. I keep mine in my shower so it’s convenient to use every day.

DIY_coffee_scrub DIY_coffee_scrub DIY_coffee_scrub

How it works:

Cellulite is formed when fat cells push into the skins middle layer, pulling on the connective tissue, causing the dimply look. It’s appearance can be effected by diet, hormones, metabolism, even the thickness of your skin.

The antioxidants and caffeine in the coffee dilate & stimulate your blood vessels, which in turn, tones & tightens your skin and tissue. The sugar further exfoliates the dead skin cells away, while the coconut oil gives you a healthy dose of plumping and hydration.

Apply your scrub in small circular motions to the affected areas for a few minutes each day. Think of it as giving yourself a nice little caffeinated massage. Rinse with warm water and pat your skin dry.

That easy! If you’d prefer to just buy a scrub instead of making it yourself, this is one of the best ones I’ve found.

So let’s all do this together for a few weeks then report back here to see if it helped?!

Also, even if you are not a sufferer of cellulite, regular exfoliation of the skin on your entire body is very important! Using a coffee sugar scrub will not only make you feel like you are majorly pampering yourself, it will wake up your senses, and help your skin be the healthiest it can be.

Total WIN WIN WIN in my book.

What are ya’lls favorite ways to exfoliate? Has anyone tried a coffee scrub for cellulite??

Green Banana Muffins

Happy Monday! I spent my Sunday cleaning & baking. Two of my favorite things 🙂 Another random fun fact about me is that I’m pretty anemic, so, I’m always trying to incorporate things like Spinach into my diet, because I don’t like taking iron pills ( they bother my stomach ). So when I found a recipe for spinach banana muffins I was immediately intrigued. I added my own twist with a handful of walnuts, and added the dark chocolate for a little sweetness, but they are delicious & the perfect on the go breakfast for the busy week ahead!

How To – DIY Clay Armpit Detox

Today on Bliss And Bubbly we are getting down and dirty. That’s right, we are discussing arm pits, toxic deodorants and the horrific side effects they can cause, how to avoid that, and an easy at home DIY that can totally transform your overall health and wellness. If you’ve been suffering from less than ideal BO, this could even cure you of that!

DIY BENTONITE CLAY ARMPIT MASK.

Remember how I talked about Bentonite Clay vacuuming the toxins out of your face when you use it as a face mask?? Well, it does the same thing for your armpits, but with much greater health benefits.

All you need is a tablespoon of Bentonite Clay, a tablespoon of Apple Cider Vinegar, a glass or ceramic bowl, and a stirring utensil that is not metal. Mix the ingredients into a paste, apply to the armpits, and let sit for 15 minutes. Rise it off in the shower using a wash cloth, and when you get out moisturize with some Organic Coconut Oil. Also, be sure to drink tons of water to really help out with the toxin ridding process!

armpit_detox

Doing a monthly armpit detox will:

  • Draw out the toxins currently built up in your body from traditional deodorants.
  • Will reduce body odor.
  • Improves tender lymph node function.
  • Boots lymphatic drainage & circulation.

Fun fact about me, I didn’t even wear deodorant until about a year ago. I just didn’t have the need for it! Then suddenly my hormones went crazy and I started to have BO. I knew that traditional deodorants worked really well, but were awful to put on your body, so I began my hunt for a natural deodorant that would still get the job done. I went through a few and was kind of losing hope until my boyfriends mom found the brand Schmidt’s!!  It’s natural, it’s non toxic, it’s made with essential oils and IT WORKS. My personal fave is Lavender & Sage, but they have other awesome essential oil combo’s to choose from as well.

If you aren’t sure about whether or not the deodorant you currently use is toxic or not these are the 5 ingredients you need to look for:

  1. Aluminum – linked to breast cancer in women, also an increased risk of Alzheimers Disease.
  2. Parabens – disrupt our very delicate hormonal balance, can lead to early puberty in younger kids/teens and and increased risk of hormonal cancers. Also linked to birth defects and organ toxicity.
  3. Propylene Glycol – can cause damage to the central nervous system, liver, and heart.
  4. Phthalates – linked to a higher risk of birth defects, also may disrupt hormone receptors which increases the likelihood of cell mutation.

So that’s a lot and that’s all extremely shitty if you ask me. I would personally MUCH RATHER be walking around with horrific BO than knowingly subject my body to any of that.

Our armpits are the location of the lymph nodes that work really hard to filter viruses, fight cancer cells, and rid our bodies of toxins. Sweat is like the public transportation system for all of those toxins and they need to be able to get off the bus! Those 5 toxic ingredients in traditional deodorants act as a suppressant, closing the pores off, causing a major build up. If a build up is occurring, your lymphatic is probably super stressed out.

The physical symptoms of a stressed lymphatic system are:

  • Chronic fatigue.
  • Swelling of the lymph nodes.
  • Muscle aches & pains.
  • Joint pain.
  • Getting sore throats/colds more often.
  • Frequent infections/viruses.
  • Arthritis.
  • Fibromyalgia.

If you’ve decided to make the switch to a natural deodorant, doing this armpit detox mask will really help ease the process. If you notice really bad BO, do a mask once a day for a few days in a row, and be sure to keep drinking tons of water.

Even if you’ve been using a natural deodorant for awhile, it’s still great to help your lymphatic system out and do this mask monthly, or every few months.

By the way, I am totally not trying to tell ya’ll that you HAVE to use natural deodorants or claiming to know more than you do about anything like that. If you want to keep on using your tried and true deodorant that’s not natural, you do you!

Also, you don’t have to use the kind I use, I just share what works for me. Do your own research and test out different brands and find what what works for you. There are so many amazing natural deodorants out there!

What are some other natural alternatives to everyday products the that ya’ll would want to see a post on?

Thanks for reading!

10 Ways To Use Aloe Vera As A Beauty Product

Gooooooood morning everybody & happy Monday! I hope you all had a wonderful, relaxing weekend with the people you love!

A few weeks ago I bought a cute little Aloe Vera plant at Trader Joe’s to have on hand for burns and things like that. I had heard that you can use Aloe Vera gel for lots of other things too, so started doing some research and I came up with this handy dandy list for you guys.

Aloe Vera has very soothing, and very antibacterial properties. It is also packed with vitamins A, C, E, B12 , minerals, enzymes, amino acids, antioxidants, folic acid & Choline. All amazing things you want/need for overall wellness and health.

It’s so great to have one of these plants around because they can live inside, they don’t need to be in sunlight, and they only need watered every few days. Perfect for those of us who are plant killers ( aka: me ) or just don’t have time to take care of a plant.

It is super easy to get the gel as well. Just cut a piece off of one of the growths, cut it down the side, peel open, then use a spoon to scoop out the gel. The plant will grow back where you cut it off! Never ending beauty products with very little maintenance, my kind of thing!

10 Ways To Use Aloe Vera As A Beauty Product:

FACE:

  1. Soothing Face Mask: Mix 1 tbs of Aloe Vera gel with 1 tbs of Raw Organic Coconut Oil and apply to face for 10 – 15 minutes. This mask will be extremely moisturizing, will help plump up fine lines and wrinkles, and will provide relief from sensitivity.
    For a quick morning burst, add coffee grounds! The caffeine will not only help you wake up, but it speeds up the collagen production in your face as well. Win win!
  2. Acne Spot Treatment: Apply Aloe Vera gel directly to the blemish and allow it to absorb. It’s soothing properties help with with the redness and inflammation, while the antibacterial properties eradicate the bacteria.
  3. Moisturizer: Aloe Vera gel is perfect for those of us who have oily skin because it absorbs super quick with no leftover residue. It may also provide relief from Rosacea.

BODY:

  1. Ouchy Aid: Apply Aloe Vera gel directly to burns, insect bites, and other minor inflammations for immediate relief.
  2. Shaving Gel/After Shave: This one is pretty self explanatory, LOL.
  3. Cracked Hell Savior: Massage gel onto heels, and leave on overnight. You’ll wake up to brand new looking heels!
  4. Anti – Aging Hand Moisturizer: Mix equal parts gel with Coconut Oil, massage into hands, then rinse. Will help fill in fine lines!
  5. Soothe Upset Tummy/Heartburn Relief: Eating/drinking the gel will aid in digestion, and is proven to almost immediately relieve heartburn.

HAIR:

  1. Dry/Damaged Hair Mask: Apply Aloe Vera gel directly to your scalp, and ends, twist hair into a bun, and let sit for 30 minutes before rinsing. This is very moisturizing, strengthening, and thickening for your hair. Can also help relieve dry, itchy scalps!
  2. DIY Leave In Conditioner: In a spray bottle combine equal parts Aloe Vera Gel, Vitamin E Oil, and Olive Oil. Spritz hair while it’s still damp, before drying, for super soft, shiny, non frizzy hair!

Who knew those cute little green plants could help us with EVERYTHING, right?! Aloe Vera plants are like natural beauty DIY superstars, and I love it.

What is your favorite way to use Aloe Vera gel?

Have a happy Monday and thank you for reading!

DIY – Face Mask Facial

Hey, hey! Welcome to Bliss And Bubbly! I’m glad you found your way here 🙂 Today I wanted to share something I discovered a few months ago with you guys…. BENTONITE CLAY. I kept seeing it all over Pinterest and finally caved and ordered it off of Amazon. And well, long story short, I now use it as a DIY face mask every Sunday night as one of my favorite parts of my self care routine.

DIY_face_mask_facial

I never want to share anything on this blog that I haven’t tried/done and LOVED. And this product is definitely at the top of that list.

It’s all natural, it’s all organic, and all you do is add filtered water ( try to avoid using tap water ) OR Raw Organic Apple Cider Vinegar and a dash of Organic Turmeric. Easy as pie and you have the greatest face mask you’ll ever use. ( Not even exaggerating about that ).

Shall we go over the benefits?

DIY_face_mask_facial

Bentonite Clay is well known for it’s amazing healing properties among the Aztecs. They say it’s magic, and for good reasons. For the face it will:

  • Shrink pores.
  • Tone & tighten the skin.
  • Literally vacuums dirt & impurities out of pores.

It’s basically like giving yourself a facial at home in the form of a mask. YES PLEASE. Bentonite Clay is also very detoxifying for the body if added to a warm bath combined with epsom salts, and is fantastic at treating insect bites or rashes when combined with water and a little baking soda.

DIY_face_mask_facial

Organic Turmeric is great at:

  • Diminishes wrinkles.
  • Gently exfoliating.
  • Evening out the skin tone.
  • Fading acne scars and dark spots.
  • Brightening the skin tone.

The only difference between using ACV or water, is that ACV will act as a natural toner for the skin. If you have really sensitive skin and have avoided using toners in the past as a result of dryness or redness, try ACV and let me know if it works better for you! I’ve found it does wonders for my skin and isn’t drying at all.

Anyways! On to the recipe:

  1. 2 teaspoons of Bentonite Clay.
  2. 2 teaspoons of ACV or filtered water.
  3. 1/4 teaspoon of Organic Turmeric.

When mixing your ingredients together be sure not to use a metal utensil, as it will cause the mixture to ball up and make it very difficult to evenly distribute onto your face.

DIY_face_mask_facial

DIY_face_mask_facial

I like to use the end of this cute little acrylic face mask application brush I got off of Amazon, but you can use anything you want, just no metal!

Once you apply the mask to your face you will almost immediately feel your skin tightening. Earlier when I said it “vacuums” out your pores, it’s so true and you’ll start to feel it right away! It’s kind of amazing. Your face will begin to pulse. It’s a weirdly relaxing sensation. I love it because I’m sitting there thinking “ahhhhh yes, all that nasty dirt in my pores is going buh bye!”

Leave it on for about 5 – 10 minutes. When rinsing it off I like to use a wash cloth soaked in warm water and rub it in gentle circles on my face until it’s all been cleaned off. Then of course always follow up with your favorite moisturizer!

Your skin will totally thank you for trying this face mask out, I know mine always does! 😉

Let me know if you like it! What are yall’s favorite face masks? I love trying new ones, and I know I can’t be the only one.

Thanks so much for reading!

Bone Broth For Beginners

Happy Monday! The weather in Texas has been exactly what we always expect: very unexpected. We go from 75 to 22 back to 75. Weather like that is just asking to get a cold or the flu! My boyfriend and I have been passing it back and forth to each other for about a month now, so this delicious bone broth recipe I’m about to share with you guys has been a regular occurring thing in our house lately.

bliss_and_bubbly_bone_broth

Bone broth is a recent “health craze” and for literally endless amounts of amazing reasons. It is basically cooking the bones, ligaments & connective tissue of responsibly raised animals to release tons of nutrients and relish in the benefits. Think chicken or beef stock, but better.

If you don’t have a cold, and have a perfectly healthy gut, bone broth should still be added into your regular diet because it’s been shown to boost the immune system, support tissue repair, and can even shorten the recovery time from a surgery or illness. It is also extremely important in aiding your liver in detoxifying the body.

The seemingly endless list of things bone broth may be used for includes…

  • Allergies
  • Anemia
  • Anxiety
  • Low protein
  • Bloating
  • Brittle hair & nails
  • Detox
  • Fatigue
  • IBS
  • Insomnia
  • Muscle atrophy & cramps
  • PMS
  • Colds & Flus
  • Illness recovery
  • Stress
  • Weak immunity
  • Slow metabolism
  • Joint health
  • Brain function
  • Anti inflammatory

Woah. Impressive, huh? Now, let’s get cookin! My recipe is the easy way out aka just buying a container of already made bone broth and adding in yummy extras. If you’d like to make it yourself out of bones, more power to you!

Ingredients:

  • Organic, no sodium container of Bone Broth ( NOT chicken or beef stock! )
  • Fresh rosemary.
  • Fresh Ginger Root.
  • Chile Flakes.
  • Peeled Garlic Cloves.
  • 1/2 a lemon, squeezed.
  • 1 – 2 teaspoons Organic Turmeric Powder.

bliss_and_bubbly_bone_broth

bliss_and_bubbly_bone_broth

Directions:

  1. Pour the contents of the Bone Broth container into a pan, and set heat on medium/high.
  2. Add in all your ingredients, and stir occasionally.
  3. Once your bone broth is warmed up, pour it into a bowl or a mug ( I like mine in a mug so I can just drink it right up ) and enjoy!

 This is a great go – to recipe to have in your back pocket when you feel a little sickness coming on.

*Bone broth may be stored in closed mason jars in the fridge for up to 5 days, just remove the layer of hardened fat that forms before enjoying*

*If you’re wondering where to get the actual bones, many butchers will give them to you for free! You just have to ask.*

For additional information and benefits about bone broth, feel free to visit Authority Nutrition.

As always, thank you for reading and hopefully I can help shorten or cure a few colds with this post 🙂

The Prettiest Apple Pie You’ve Ever Seen

HAPPY THANKSGIVING YA’LL!

The Prettiest Apple Pie You've Ever Seen

I feel like everyone says this, but, I seriously cannot believe how fast this year has gone by. I can’t be the only one? I am not complaining though, because I absolutely ADORE the holiday season. Every single thing about it. One of my favorite things about the holidays though, especially Thanksgiving, is that it’s the perfect excuse to bake tons of yummy things for the people you love. There is just something so wonderful and gratifying about putting effort and love into a dish, being able to show if off to you friends and family, and then watching them enjoy every last crumb. My mom and dad always say “I made it with love” and that’s why it tastes so good. Every time I bake something though, I never eat it LOL, I just want everyone else to enjoy it. Is that crazy?

Last year I made some gorgeous apple rose mini pies, and this year I am making The Prettiest Apple Pie You’ve Ever Seen. Sticking with an apple theme I guess….

The recipe is so easy and from Martha Stewart ( so you know it’s going to be good ):

The Prettiest Apple Pie You've Ever Seen The Prettiest Apple Pie You've Ever Seen

Ingredients:

  • 2 Tbs all purpose flour.
  • Pie dough ( the more the better, just in case! )
  • 12 Granny Smith Apples ( peeled, cored & sliced ).
  • 3/4 C sugar, plus extra for the top of the pie.
  • Zest & juice of 1 lemon.
  • 1 1/2 Tsp of cinnamon.
  • 1/2 Tsp of nutmeg.
  • A pinch of ground cloves.
  • 2 Tbs of unsalted butter.
  • 1 large egg, beaten.

Directions:

The Prettiest Apple Pie You've Ever Seen The Prettiest Apple Pie You've Ever Seen The Prettiest Apple Pie You've Ever Seen

  1. Heat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Sanitize and flour a surface, then roll out the pie dough into two circles slightly larger than the size of the pan you are using ( mine is 9 inches ). Place one circle into the bottom of the pie pan up to the edges, and place the other on a sheet of wax paper, then cover with plastic wrap. Chill all of the dough in the fridge for about 30 minutes.
  3. In a large bowl combine the apples, sugar, lemon juice & zest, spices, and flour, then toss gently to combine.
  4. Spoon the apple mixture in the pie pan you previously placed a dough circle into. Dot the mixture with the butter.
  5. Here comes the pretty part, are you ready?? You can take the easy ( STILL PRETTY ) route, and just simply cover the top with your other pie dough circle, and make a few slices in the top for the steam to vent out, OR, you could make this gorgeous lattice braided design I did.
  6. Seal the edges.
  7. Bake for about for one hour, or until the crust turns a light brown and the pie juices begin to bubble. Chill on a wire rack before serving.

The Prettiest Apple Pie You've Ever Seen The Prettiest Apple Pie You've Ever Seen

Lattice/braiding dough TIP: Try not to handle the dough for too long, because the warmer it gets the harder it will be to manipulate. Also, I make the design right on top of the pie. I’ve learned that it is easier than making it on a surface, then trying to transfer it to the pie.

The Prettiest Apple Pie You've Ever Seen The Prettiest Apple Pie You've Ever Seen The Prettiest Apple Pie You've Ever Seen

TA DA. How gorgeous, right?! If you know me, you know I have a very large obsession with anything and everything floral. So my contribution to Thanksgiving this year had to be no different ( my boyfriend says “Madison – esque” ) so I grabbed a bouquet from Kroger that had some different options in the color scheme I wanted, and stuck them in the pie once it was fully chilled.

It turned out so pretty I might refuse to let anyone eat it!

Does anyone else get weirdly attached to the things that they bake?

Try serving this with vanilla ice cream drizzled with caramel, trust me :).

I hope you enjoy your Thanksgiving with your families and loved ones, and thank you so much for reading! It means more to me than ya’ll know 🙂

DIY Organic Coconut Rose Body Scrub

Ahhhhhh. You’re just three simple, ORGANIC ingredients ( that you probably already have in your kitchen ) away from indulging yourself in a spa like shower experience. LUCKY YOU. Coconut Rose Body Scrub not only smells incredible, but also has irresistible benefits for your skin & health.

DIY Organic Coconut Rose Body Scrub with Bliss & Bubbly

Coconut Oil is ultra hydrating for your skin, without being greasy, while also being full of antibiotic properties that can help heal body breakouts and wounds. I mean, by this point we all know that coconut oil basically can solve every single one of our problems, right? LOL but really.

Pink Himalayan Sea Salt is a fab natural exfoliant and is great at removing dead skin cells. PLUS it helps draw toxins out of your body. Yes please.

Rose Essential Oil is basically ( in my opinion ) the greatest thing you could ever put on your skin. It is a natural astringent that helps tone, lift and firm. It also contains properties that can help heal scars and stretch marks quickly.

To fill a small mason jar I use:

3 Tbs of Raw Organic Unrefined Coconut Oil.

5 Tbs of finely ground Pink Himalayan Sea Salt.

20 – 30 drops of Organic Rose Essential Oil.

You are more than welcome to adjust these measurements based on the container you’re using or for just personal preference regarding the feeling and the smell. I like to be as rosy smelling as possible.

Be sure to use a glass jar with a tight closing lid, and to store it in a cool dry place so that it lasts as long as possible.

Pretty please, let me know how much you love it! Treat yourself to a spa night tonight ( you’re welcome ) 😉
