Super Silky Summer Legs
Next time you are feeling down, about to binge, going on a date, or just need to pamper yourself, do this. I just did it and I can not stop rubbing my legs together. It feels like I paid for that over expensive pedicure at the salon.
- 1 1/4 C Sugar (Yup, plain, good-ol’ white sugar)
- 1/2 C Oil (I used olive oil, but you can use any oil, coconut oil, baby oil, canola oil)
- 3 tablespoons Citrus (Lime or lemon)
- 1-2 Razors
- Mix everything together in a bowl.
- Soak your legs in the tub for 5 minutes.
- Shave your legs.
- Rub some of this mixture all over your legs. The sugar will help rub off all dirt and dead skin. Rub, rub. Feels like a mini massage.
- Rinse it all off, shave again. I would use one razor per leg if you have two. You will be rinsing this razor a lot. I was GROSSED out by the amount of dead skin I was “shaving” off. It was insane! Trust me, you’ll see.
- Rub your legs again! Second coat of wax, oh yeah.
- Rinse off! You can use a mild soap to help get some of the oil off.
- Lotion your legs up, and feel the silkiness!
Now this isn’t just geared to ladies…. guys, if you want to get lucky, I suggest you offer to rub your ladies’ feet with this mix too. It feels awesome, and when you get lucky, you will be thanking me that her rough grandma feet aren’t cutting your legs, if ya know what I’m saying… hahaha.
I have silky arm pits too!!
Try it, I swear, You will want everyone to touch your legs.

DIY Lavender & Chamomile Bath Melts
I was just sent this recipe, an all-natural herbal and buttery skin bath treat, and you guys already KNOW i’m making some this weekend. When was the last time you took a nice relaxing bath? Lavender and Chamomile are perfect for releasing stress. Take this as a sign. I just need to buy some of those cute molds and i’m all set. Rebecca also uses a lot of my personal DIY staples (cocoa butter, shea butter and lavender essential oil) so i’m most definitely going to flip it with my own version! Recipe here.
Fashion, art, and creativity make the world go ‘round. When all are combined, endless and innovative magic happens. The never-ending cycle of a circle is something that is sought after. This season, set your sights not only on infinite possibilities, but also scarves! The circle scarf has become a staple in everyones’ wardrobe. Infuse the essential chunky knit to stay cozy and au currant. Continuous knit circle scarves can be worn long and loose or wrapped up right. Either way you style it, circle gets the square!
To create your own DIY circle scarf, simply cut off the bottom half of your sweater, hem the raw edge with Gorilla Tape by sticking halfway down, and folding over to seal. After completely “hemmed”, roll underneath several times to hide the tape and create a soft edge.
- 2 1/2 pounds starchy white potatoes, peeled (russets, idaho, et al)
- 1 small yellow onion, peeled
- 1/4 cup potato or corn starch
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 2 cups matzoh meal
- Lots of vegetable oil
If using a food processor:
- Use the grating blade to shred the potatoes and the onion.
If shredding by hand:
- Use a grater to shred all the potatoes. Dice the onion as finely as possible.Directions:
- Have ready brown paper shopping bags or paper towels for draining the oil from the latkes. You may also want to have the oven on at 200 F to keep the latkes warm until you’re ready to serve. If serving immediately then just have a baking pan covered with tin foil ready to keep the finished ones warm after they’ve been drained.
- In a large mixing bowl, using a wooden spoon or your hands
- Mix the potatoes and onions with the potato starch until the potatoes have released some moisture and the cornstarch is dissolved, about 2 minutes.
- Add the salt and pepper to combine.
- Add the matzoh meal and mix well. Set aside for about 10 minutes. The mixture should get liquid-y but sticky.
- In the meantime, preheat a large preferable cast iron but definitely non-stick skillet over medium heat, a little bit on the high side. Add about 1/4 inch layer of vegetable oil to the pan. The oil is hot enough when you throw a bit of batter in and bubbles rapidly form around it. If it immediately smokes then the heat is too high and you should lower it a bit. If the bubbles are really lazy then give it a few more minutes or turn the heat up a bit.
- With wet hands (so that the mixture doesn’t stick) roll into small golf ball sized balls. Flatten into thin round patties. I do about 4 to six at a time. Fry on one side for about 4 minutes, until golden brown. Flip over and fry for another 3 minutes.
- Transfer to the paper towels and proceed with the remaining latkes. Once latkes have drained on both sides, place in a baking pan to keep warm.
