Everyone around me is talking Detox. Detoxing from Sugar, Baked Goods, Alcohol, and really Big Meals. And, I could not agree more. It’s time to get back on track. All of the Holiday fun is GONE!!!! January is also the time I do a detox for my skin. There are some really simple items that you can use right in your kitchen to help smooth, relieve dryness from and lightly exfoliate your skin. I really love this Oatmeal, Cinnamon and Honey mask. After just the first use, you will see a reduction in your fine lines and wrinkles and a plumper look for your skin overall!!! The best part is you can probably go and make it right now and start seeing the results!!!
– 1/2 cup oats
– Half cup warm milk or water
– 1 Tsp honey
– 1/2 Tsp cinnamon
– Half Tsp lemon juice
Mix all the ingredients together to form a paste. Add milk or water to adjust the texture. Apply to clean skin with your hands or an old paintbrush or foundation brush. Leave on for 20 minutes and rinse off with warm water. Enjoy your supple and soft skin!
Note: Cinnamon can cause a slight tingly/burning sensation, so it’s useful to do a patch test before applying.
I saw so many great festive drink recipes over the holidays. My husband started drinking Old Fashions a few months ago. It is always served with a huge block of ice and 4 ruby red cherries. I started thinking that there is so much creativity that goes into creating the perfect cocktail. I found this week’s book, Let’s Get Fizzical: More than 50 Bubbly Cocktail Recipes with Prosecco, Champagne, and Other Sparkling Wines by Pippa Guy.
Add some sparkle to your life with this irresistible cocktail recipe book, featuring over 50 drinks made from Prosecco, Sekt, Cava, Champagne, and other sparkling wines.
An inspiring mix of classic cocktail recipes such as bellinis and mimosas, alongside exciting variations and twists, Let’s Get Fizzical offers tips, tricks, presentation ideas, and technical know-how to make your cocktails as sensational for the eye as they are for the palate.
The introductory chapter, A Beginner’s Guide to Bubbles, explains the differences between sparkling wines to help you tell your spumante from your frizzante, or your extra-brut from your demi-sec. Everything you need to know about fizz is here, including insider secrets such as how to make sure your drink keeps its bubbles.
The Know Your Fizz section gives you the low-down on your bubbles of choice, whether that’s a budget Cava or a fancy Champagne. Get The Party Started gives you the drink mixing skills to impress your guests, from essential cocktail shaking techniques to the perfect glass shape.
