a glimmer into the life of a mum who loves fashion, decor and prosecco

it feels like Friday . . .

I can't believe it is only the beginning of the week, for some reason I cant get my mind to agree with me and I keep feeling like its Thursday or Friday. 

Here are a few things that will keep me going this week . . .

Trader Joe's organic coconut oil (you can buy almost anywhere - Amazon, Whole Foods, etc)

You can use it for so many different things .  I actually gave this as a gift to all the ladies in my family!  I use it right after the shower, while my skin is still damp, and I cannot explain how silky, velvety soft it makes my skin!  And it is the weirdest stuff to use, it is a solid in the jar but when you scoop some out and put it on your skin it literally melts like b.u.t.t.a (butter) . . . and if you don't like the smell of coconut, skip this all together because, while it is not overpowering, it definitely smells coconutty! 

And mama's I use this on my girls skin and it is wonderful.  It's organic, natural and has no harmful, carcinogenic chemicals like other lotions.

It contains lauric acid which is extremely great at helping your immune system against viruses.  It is known to help in weight loss and digestion if you cook with it.  I did a mummy interview with a fantastic lady who puts coconut oil in her shakes! I am trying this tomorrow morning!  I also read that you can add it to your coffee so I tried it and it was kinda yummy!  And I did have a very pleasant energy-filled morning . . . maybe it was the coconut! 

My calm within the storm . . . I ordered this based on a few recommendations and on the fantastic reviews . . . I have used it for 3 days and I have to say it has a gentle & mellow calming effect on me.  I take it at night and it has just let my mind and body slow down and get ready for sleep.  It also tastes pretty yummy (raspberry-lemon) kinda like a Emergen-C 

Givenchy's Fall 2012 line - while the whole collection is absolutely beautiful, it is these boots that are haunting me . . .
