Coffee Scrub & Me…

In Weekend Chronicles on August 10, 2014 at 5:23 pm

 

Coffee Scrub

 

I’ve been seeing a lot of coffee scrubs around the internet, especially on Instagram, the prices have ranged from $18 – $35 and a coffee scrub body-wrap can cost $100 and up if you go to a spa! Because I have an entrepreneurial spirit, I started thinking; how about I create my own (light bulb moment!)  I won’t mention the 2 most popular brands floating around on Instagram here, because I’m sure you already know who they are.  After a little research, and the gathering of  organic ingredients, I made my own batch and coaxed some dependable and quite eager associates to be my test cases (trust me they did not need much coaxing!).  After rave reviews, it turns out I just may have a really good thing here.

As you may know, caffeine, is excellent to reduce the appearance of cellulite and the other ingredients are fantastic for obtaining baby soft skin.

I’ve made a few batches and they’ve turned out really well.  I’m going to experiment with different ingredients, but I’m pleased to say that I already have pre-orders, and I’m not even up and running yet!

Here’s a batch I created for my personal use, stored in my lovely “Liberty for Target” glass, which once held one of their gorgeously scented candles. {I wish Target would release another “Liberty for Target” line}.

Stay tuned, there just might be a giveaway in the near future!

 

 

Wishing you an Amazing and Beautifully Blessed week.

Hello Darlings!

In honour of National Lipstick Day 2014, I had to post one of my absolute favourites, which I have posted here before.  I absolutely love Tom Ford’s Cherry Lush, which is my all time favourite red to wear, when I’m in the mood.

Another favourite colour of mine is Laura Mercier’s Dusk, which just this second, I’ve found out has been discontinued!! I’ve found it on Fragrance.net (click link above).  I must have it! Dusk was the perfect pink, with a mauve hue, when you just needed a little something.  I normally layer this colour with Touch (above) by MAC which is also one of my go to nudes.

Whatever colour you decide to wear, pucker up, wear it confidently, and be the amazing Sylista you truly are.

Remember to live life with passion!
