1. Fleur de Sel
Fleur de sel is literally translated to mean ‘flower of salt’.
It’s a high-end salt that is typically harvested by hand, making it rather pricey. For that reason, it’s not really intended to be used like regular sea salt (at least, not in my house), but it makes an excellent accompaniment to desserts!
That may sound strange if you’re not into the sweet/salty combo, but I mention here today because I have a wonderful fudge recipe coming on Monday, and this makes a delicious garnish for it, so keep it in mind.
2. Honey Mask
One of my favorite ways to relax at home and ‘beautify’ myself is with a homemade mask…
While I do love taking the time to mix up my Homemade Detox Mask, sometimes I don’t have much time. In light of that fact, I will often just spread some raw honey on my face and proceed to make dinner or do other chores.
I find that the honey alone, however, really works to clear and moisturize my skin, even acting like a little (albeit, temporary) Botox filler for some of my fine lines.
3. Trader Joe’s Find
I love discovering the cheapest place to buy something that’s typically expensive, in this case, hemp seeds!
I love hemp seeds. They’re high in protein, allergy-friendly (in our family, anyway), and make an instant milk, sans soak time.
Trader Joe’s now sells them for $5.99 for eight ounces, which is cheaper than any other store or site I’ve found.
4. Cabbage Smoothies?…
Wouldn’t you know it, the other day I was plumb out of anything dark green and leafy in our fridge. Not wanting to go without some type of added veggie in my morning smoothie, I took a chance on some green cabbage.
It was actually a great addition! My husband couldn’t tell it was in there either, which is a good sign. Just a different idea if you’re looking to change up your shakes.
5. How to Make a Paper Airplane
Wanna impress your kids or kill ten minutes?? Follow the instructions and make this paper airplane!
Kind of cheesy, but Jade became obsessed with paper airplanes recently, so I set out to make one that actually flies, and this one is a dream! The best design I’ve ever come across. 🙂
