DIY: Kids Art Temporary Tattoo

There are many challenging things about being a parent and most of those challenges were to be expected, since I read about them in parenting books.  But the one challenge I was not prepared for was the abundant amount of art my child would produce and endless decisions of what to do with it all.  Every scribble, stroke, and dot-a-dot is precious but soon turns into piles and piles and more piles of mini-masterpieces.  Does anyone else have a pang of guilt when a few of these masterpieces are tossed in the recycling?...more

Coconut Oil for Sunburns: Just in Time for Summer!

I am a big proponent for coconut oil. I slather the stuff on my skin; use it in my baking and as an agent for soothing sunburn. Coconut oil works wonders as a moisturizer, so when I came home from the beach the other day with a nasty sunburn on the backs of my legs (we’ve all been there, you know, that upper part near your butt that you always miss when you put on sunscreen), I decided to try a little coconut love. ...more
