Let the Sun In

 

 I know this picture doesn't do it justice, but I love how the light shines in through the curtains on a sunny day.

 

Natural Deodorant

A while ago I made my own natural deodorant. It didn't work as I hoped it would because I ended up irritated.  I also didn't feel fresh. I decided to give it another try. As I was researching I found out why it didn't work before me.  First of all some people get irritated because of baking soda and second it takes a couple of weeks for your body to adjust to a natural deodorant. I don't think I even made it a week before I gave up. So yesterday I made a new fresh batch using the same recipe I had used before. The only thing I didn't add was any scented oils.  I will try that after I'm past the adjustment period. I used:

1/3 cornstarch
1/4 baking soda
1/4 coconut oil
1 small glass bottle
measuring cup

I mix all the ingredients together and place it in the glass bottle. I let it set in the fridge.  I'm going to use the same method of taking it out in the morning to soften.  Since the weather is getting warmer I can't leave it out and I want it to stay fresh.  It ended up looking like this.
                            



In order to make it past the adjustment period and ween my body off of regular deodorant. I plan to buy Tom's of Maine Naturally Dry deodorant. This will give me the extra support I need when I go outside. I don't want to be paranoid about offending .  I love their toothpaste and the vision behind their brand in general.

Positively Positive Weekend Quote

I couldn't do my podcast this weekend, but I still wanted to post a quote.  I thought this was simple but so true.  I hope everyone is having a wonderful Sunday.

As A Parent I Have To Do What!



My four year old son (Twin A) has just informed me that it's a rule when a kid see something on television that he wants.  The parents have to get it for him.  I'm not sure what book my adorable son is reading from, but clearly it's leading him in the wrong direction.  This is why I can never be distracted when he's talking to me and just I say yes without understanding what he said. It will lock me into a contract of giving him unlimited toys, cookies and juice. On the other hand I should be happy at four he's reading a imaginary book even if it's being used to trap me. :)  He doesn't understand that he's my last not my first.  I'm immune to cute looks and innocent eyes being used against me to get what they want. :) Okay that's not entirely truthful, I'm just better at saying no with less guilt.

HAPPY TGIF!
