Things I’m loving lately

First order of business… I am still pregnant.  This baby girl is awfully cozy in my belly!  Like I keep on saying though, I know that she’ll come out when she is good and ready. And now onto all of the things I’ve been loving lately… I actually had a really difficult time narrowing down the list this month.  I’ve been using some great products!     1.  IT Cosmetics CC Cream with SPF 50+ You might recall that I mentioned this product in my 5-minute face routine, but I just had to bring it up again...

50 (more) uses for coconut oil

You may have noticed that when I like something, I get really enthusiastic about it and rave on and on…and on about it.  I’ve always been the sort of person who gets ridiculously excited when they open presents, and I’d probably make one heck of a QVC hostess. Most of the time, I continue to like and enjoy the items that I share here, but I do often move on and try new things. However, there are a few things/topics/people that I’ve written about to death on this blog throughout the past 3 (plus) years, such as salmon,...

My all-time favorite natural beauty products

My all-time favorite natural beauty products

Over the course of The Grass Skirt’s 3-year existence, I’ve blogged a lot about beauty products that I love- especially ones that are on the more natural side.  While I’ve moved on from some of them (I suffer from beauty product ADD in a major way), there are some that have remained constant favorites.  In other words, I might possibly shed a few tears if any of these products were discontinued. Sadly, I am only half-kidding, (Please note: Some of these products are not 100% all natural.  To see how they rank as far as...

Things I’m loving lately (February 2014)

Happy Thursday! My list of favorites has been growing lately, so I felt like it was time to share some of them with you (especially since I’m pretty sure that one of the things on my list is on sale right now).   Big Spender Nail Polish It is rare that I’ll apply the same polish for weeks in a row, but I’ve reapplied this color three times over in the past month and haven’t gotten remotely sick of it yet.  I think this is actually a perfect year-round color even though it was released in a fall...

5 beauty benefits of apple cider vinegar (and my blonde hair!)

5 beauty benefits of apple cider vinegar (and my blonde hair!)

Apple Cider Vinegar (or ACV) has been a staple in my daily routine for several months now, and let me tell you, it’s good stuff. So, why am I such a big fan? For one thing, ACV can have a major impact on our internal health.  In fact, drinking 1 tablespoon mixed in a glass of water before each meal can aid digestion, control blood sugar, clear stuffy noses, promote the growth of good bacteria in our system, support weight loss, and fight yeast infections- among numerous other benefits. It can also have a positive influence on our...
