October is a month that gives endless excuses to craft, bake, and decorate. I love burning my “autumn leaves” candles, baking anything and everything pumpkin, and filling the house with the warm colors of the season. This year, I’m going to take the festivities to drinks. I’ll post my favorite recipe every week! Today, let’s get cozy with Warm Vanilla Cider :)
6 cups fresh apple cider
2 tablespoons packed dark-brown sugar
1 vanilla bean (split and scraped)2
6 ounces (3/4 cup) bourbon, if desired
Combine apple cider, dark-brown sugar, nutmegseeds, and vanilla bean in a medium saucepan. Gently simmer over medium-low heat for 15 minutes. Remove from heat, and add bourbon if desired. Remove and discard solids. Divide among 6 mugs or heatproof glasses, and top each with a dollop of whipped cream and a few honeyed walnuts.
Shaving can be a different experience for everyone. For some, razor burns and bumps are foreign and shaving is a piece of cake. They could probably put anything on their face and have no reaction.
Others, however, are not so lucky. People with sensitive skin who are constantly getting razor burns and rashes have a difficult time picking the right razor, shaving cream, and shaving technique.
One problem for people with sensitive skin is that the shaving cream they’re using contains fragrances and alcohol that can aggravate the skin. When choosing the right shaving cream, look for organic or fragrance-free creams. These will be less likely to irritate the skin. It is important to use shaving cream when shaving because it softens the skin for the best shave possible, so make sure you are still using shaving cream opposed to simply soap and water.
There are tons of effective shaving creams for sensitive skin. Here’s a great one!
It’s that time of the week again. Yup, it’s time to put aside an extra seven minutes of the day so you can shave those legs. So what makes a nice smooth shave? I think it typically requires 3 products. The first is obviously a razor, second’s shaving cream, and then lotion to finish em off.
The other day I was at my girlfriends house and I asked her what the baby oil in her shower was for. Could you guess? She uses it to shave her legs with! I decided to give it a go, and my legs were SO smooth after. I didn’t even have to put lotion on! Not only were they smooth as silk, but they looked really nice too. They were shiny and glowing. So, I figured I’d switch to baby oil! It’s cheaper than buying shaving cream and lotions, plus you’ll have the sexiest legs out there!
