Stretch Mark Remover DIY Update

Hey Friends!! I know everyone is anticipating this update. For the past 21 days I have been testing out Stretch mark remover DIY’s. I have started with 2 and if they don’t work I will move on to another 2 to try until I find one that works for me and for y’all!! IMG_1287This is where I started. I know that I don’t have the worst stretch marks in the world but honestly they still bother me. I didn’t get a single stretch mark until a week before I delivered!! How annoying is that?!?!?! Any ways when I ran my hand over my legs I could feel the uneven-ness of my skin and seeing that whiteish and purple/red coloring. I hate it!! I know some say to embrace it but why not be confident about them while trying to remove them? haha So after 21 days I can see a difference!!

It is not perfect but my skin has become more smooth and less uneven. Still not perfect. and the coloring is much better. IMG_1409This is the thigh I have been using the cocoa butter mixture on. Check out my post on DIY stretch mark remover for the recipe. Yes you can see I still have some marks but trust me it is much better!!FullSizeRender(10)This last picture is of my left thigh where I have been using the vitamin E. Vitamin E has been working soooo well! I have been super impressed with both of these remedies. I have to say they really do work. The key is patience and consistency. If you can stick with it you can have super smooth legs or anywhere on your body really!

Lastly I am working on reformulating the cocoa butter mixture to be a little more user friendly. It is a solid lotion that melts into the skin. I think for my next batch I will add vitamin E to it and also use molds. Like I say in the past few posts. I am OBSESSED with this homemade cocoa butter lotion. OMG just sooooo good!

Okay y’all that is all for my half way update! I’m excited to see the results at the end of the 45 days!!

Baby Hack!

This is a new series I am going to start. I read hundreds of life hacks on pinterest but how about some baby hacks?! Do you have a little one who is teething? Or maybe he or she is just out on a super hot day? I started making my little one baby Popsicles and they are so easy to make!!! And they are a huge hit with babies and toddlers!

Pretty inexpensive, about 6-7$ for two. Then you can either use pre packaged baby food or make your own mixes! Spoon some of the mixture into the feeder, usually holds about 2oz. I use a bit of plastic wrap to wrap the feeder and keep it from getting baby food everywhere. and Voila! You have a tasty treat for baby and way to add more fruits and veggies without added sugar into the babies and kids!

And as kids get a little older you can get a Popsicle mold at walmart or target to make big kid popsicles! image1(2)This chunky butt doesn’t lie and baby pops are the sweet solution to hot summer days and sore gums!! Don’t forget the bib tho!!!
