happy sunday, crunchies!
ROM/WATER-ONLY UPDATE. i’ve gotten a lot of questions about how ROM is going. this might get its own post soon because i still have a lot to share (and ask you guys, for that matter!), but here’s a quick update – i’m mostly ROM still. i say mostly because i’ve been doing scalp rinses regularly lately. my water here is so terrible! there’s such a strong chemical smell, and my scalp/hair/skin really hates it… i’ve been noticing some flakes! hopefully experimenting with different filters and/or different hair rinses will prove helpful. the weekly overnight aloe masks and acv rinses every 4ish days have been great! i’d just personally prefer to be lower maintenance than this. but, as we know, our water ultimately determines our hair and skin routines. i can’t even use castile soap here. womp.
FACE MASK OBSESSION. lately i’ve been doing face masks about 2x a week. i’m so obsessed with them! i guess that’s a good thing since i’m having to create masks for a nice-sized group of people. right now i’m loving a combo of hibiscus powder, spirulina, activated charcoal, raw honey, and hemp seed oil. my face always feels so velvety-soft, polished, and moisturized after. what are your favorite masks?
SPA NIGHT – WEDDING PLANS. one of my long-time friends is marrying her beautiful fiance in the early fall, and asked me to whip up some crunchy creations for the night before the wedding. naturally, i’m suuuper planning ahead on what all to make for the brides and bridal parties. i’m thinking face masks, body exfoliation, body butters, and foot soaks. i’m currently working on some gentle masks suitable for most skin types, and i’m leaning towards making spirulina the star of the show. what do you think i should create? i’m gladly accepting ideas!
GRAIN-FREE EXPERIMENTS. i’ve been experimenting with a blend of rice and almond flour to make little mini pizzas and waffles. this was my latest creation – a spicy lime veggie pizza. do you have any yummy grain-free recipes to share?
INTERNATIONAL TRIP. i’m super stoked to go on an international trip this upcoming weekend and cross of another bucket list item! the location is secret until i get there 😉 i can’t wait to share pictures with you guys! what’s your favorite vacation been? what made it your favorite?
LASTLY – what is this? someone please tell me. i found quite a few of these under a tree, but didn’t see anything resembling them on the tree itself.
what’s up with YOU this past week/weekend? i want to hear all about it!
