Aww yeah! Before I start, I just want to say thank you for the support that all of my dear friends and fellow bloggers have given me. It is really encouraging and I appreciate it dearly! I actually celebrated by dancing with myself to Brit-pop music because I was that happy. So again, thank you, your support means a lot to me. ♥
And now for my first D.I.Y: A Sugar Body Scrub!
I, personally, love body scrubs but I don't like buying things that I can easily make. Plus most body scrub have added preservatives and other fancy-smancy chemicals that are really not needed. So after a few fails I finally made a body scrub that I like.
1/2 cup Sugar
Juice from half a lemon
1 TBS honey
and my top secret ingredient...
1 tsp coffee grounds(optional)
I love the smell, texture and color that the coffee. You can choose to leave it out or use just a little if you wish.
Just mix all these ingredients together in the bowl, mug or jar of your choice and PRESTO! It is that easy.
FYI: I like my scrub to not be as thick as most are. If don't you can add more sugar until you reach the desired consistency. Balance it out by adding just a little more honey. Sometimes I use brown sugar instead of just regular sugar, It is completely up to you.
By the way, do you guys have any tips for this beginning blogger? I would love to hear them!
