Strawberry, Ruby Basil Green Tea

Life

We have some beautiful Ruby Red Basil or Purple Basil, growing in our garden this summer. At first I had no idea what to do with it, however I started experimenting and it turns out that the Ruby Basil is extremely versatile! The first recipe on my list…a delicious and refreshing iced tea to enjoy while gardening! Enjoy!

First- steep a pot of your favorite green tea. We use Stash green tea in our house because we find the flavor and color to be beautiful.

Then- take a few Ruby Red basil leaves, and fresh strawberries and muddle them into the bottom of your serving vessel.

Fill your cup with ice.

Pour the green tea over the basil, strawberries and ice.

Enjoy!

The Best Dry Shampoo for Thin Hair

BEAUTY, Hair, Life

If you have thin hair, then you can probably relate to most of my struggles. My hair gets greasy quickly, falls flat and gets tangled as soon as I stop brushing it. I used to think that I was just unlucky and would have ugly trunchbull crappy hair my whole life. But then I started making adult wages and learned that you can’t buy crappy and cheap hair products and expect to have beautiful celebrity quality hair. Unless you have some amazing genes and are extremely lucky you can’t be using suave and herbal essences and thinking your hair is going to look like Lauren Conrads. It just doesn’t happen. Thus my journey began with investing in higher quality hair products. And boy- does it make a difference!

Please…Can We Prevent Stretch Marks?

So I am going through my first pregnancy and am scared to death of getting stretch marks. I know that I am prone to them, because when I went through puberty and my hips and thighs filled in, I got the dreaded marks all over my inner thighs.

I have hated them my whole life, and now as a 31 year old woman, I do not want to add anymore!
