Since most of us don’t have the time or money to go to Starbucks every day, it’s time to learn some DIY fruity drink recipes we can make right in our homes!  There’s nothing better than hitting up the pool with some refreshing drinks at hand.  Here are 3 drink recipes that are healthy, hydrating, and delicious!

  • Watermelon Agua Fresca.Chelsea Crockett - Fruity Drink  For this recipe, you’ll need 3 cups of cubed watermelon, ¼ cup of lime juice, 4 mint leaves, 2 cups of water, and ice!  Add all of the ingredients except the mint leaves in a blender and mix them together until it is well blended.  Refrigerate the mixture for a few hours if you want it to be cooler, or else simply add a few mint leaves and ice cubes and enjoy!
  • Fizzy Pineapple Punch.  For this delicious punch, you’ll need a 6 oz. can of limeade, a 12 oz. can of pineapple juice, 4 ½ cups of cold water, 1 liter of club soda, assorted fruits, and mint leaves.  In a large pitcher, mix together the juices, water, and club soda.  Put the fruits and ice cubes in different glasses and pour the punch in.  Finish it off with some mint leaves for decoration like the picture on the right! 🙂
  • Lemon Pineapple Kiwi Sparkling Mocktail.  You’ll need 1 kiwi, 3 teaspoons of pineapple juice, 1 teaspoon of honey, and 1 can of La Croix sparkling lemon water.  Blend together the unpeeled kiwi, pineapple juice, and honey.  Split the mixture into glasses and fill the rest the glass the rest of the way with the sparkling water.  And lastly, enjoy!

Lemme tell ya… cold weather can be rough on the skin!  As soon as the temperature drops, my face starts getting drier and drier.  I’ve tried different products that have worked for my skin type and others that have made it even worse.  I’ve found a few DIYs you can do at home that actually make a difference and cost almost nothing!

  • Egg yolk on your face might not sound like the most pleasant thing, but egg yolk contains proteins that help with shedding skin!  Mix together a teaspoon of olive oil and two egg yolks.  Apply the mixture to your face for about 5 minutes and rinse it off with warm water!Chelsea Crockett - Lemon Face Mask
  • Mix together a teaspoon of sugar and the juice from half of a lemon.  The sugar works as a scrub to remove any dead or flakey skin.  The lemon juice helps promote skin growth which leaves your pores smooth and glowing!  Scrub the mask on in a circular motion for about 10-15 minutes.  Then rinse it off!
  • Dry skin doesn’t only appear on your face.  If you have problems with dry skin on other areas of your body, put a cup of sea salt in a warm bath and relax in it for 20 minutes or so!  If you repeat this process 2 or 3 times a week, your skin will be detoxed, smooth, and hydrated!

Sugar scrubs are natural exfolaints! They can greatly improve the health of your skin by getting rid of toxins and impurities and gives you a healthy glow! Regular soap may appear to keep your skin clean, but only exfoliation removes dead skin cells and excess oil!

Here is how to make your very own lemon honey sugar scrub!lemonhoney

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup sugar
  • ½ cup olive oil
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 tbsp honey

Add all of these ingredients together and keep them in a jar in your bathroom so that you have easy access to it! I use my sugar scrub when I am in the shower and I have deep conditioner sitting in my hair. I have the water off and use the scrub on my face and all over my body! It rejuvenates my skin and gets all of the dead skin off. Then, I rinse it off in the shower! Easy peasy!

Comment below and let me know how this sugar scrub works for you!

Going to the salon to lighten your hair can be a pain.  Between the harsh chemicals and heavy price tag, it’s almost not worth it; not to mention the fading of the color over time!  Lucky for us girls, there are natural ways to lighten your hair this summer!  Getting sun-kissed hair has never been easier!Chelsea Crockett- lemon highlighter

  1. Boil one tea bag in water for 10 minutes and then rinse your hair with it. Leave the tea in your hair for 15 minutes before rinsing it out!
  2. Before lying out in the sun, squeeze a fresh lemon throughout your hair. The sun and lemon juice will act together to lighten your hair!
  3. Add cinnamon to a small amount of conditioner, enough to coat your entire head evenly, and brush it through your hair. Pin your hair up to leave it in for a few hours or for quicker results; use a shower cap so you can sleep with the mixture on overnight.
  4. Crush 8 or 9 vitamin C tablets and mix them together with your shampoo. Shampoo and condition as you normally would and rinse!

Remember, results take time!  You may need to do each treatment multiple times before noticing lighter hair!

Love,

Chelsea
