The Beauty of Avocados

Ah, gorgeous, healthy avocados. I put a tree in the backyard around five years ago. Last year I got the first fruit and it was only about seven avocados. This year the thing went crazy. While “storing” avocados on the tree is best because they will not soften while they are there, I woke up one morning to about ten that had fallen on their own. TEN. What do I do with TEN avocados all getting soft at the same time? There are only two of us two legged people living here.

I love avocados. I really do but I can’t see myself eating them for every meal. Anything can get old. Here are a few things you can do with an over abundance of avocados whether you grow them or you find them soft and cheap at your local grocery store…

Body moisturizer The natural oils in an avocado can penetrate deep into the skin, helping to soften and hydrate dry and flaky patches. Simply spread it across your body, leave on for 10 to 15 minutes, shower or bathe in lukewarm water and pat dry.

Sunburn pain Most of us LOVE the beach until we wake up the next morning with a sunburn. Ease pain and prevent chafing by applying avocados directly to the spot.

Reduce wrinkles Use a Haas avocado to whip up an antioxidant and amino acid-rich mask that will target fine lines, crow’s feet and other signs of aging.

Nourish dry facial skin Try a facial mask made from avocado, raw honey and yogurt to slough away dead skin cells and restore a more youthful glow to your face.

Condition your hair Try an avocado, olive oil and egg hair mask. Sure, it’s pretty sticky, but you won’t regret slathering it on when you end up with super smooth and luminous strands.

Healthy Hair Never Looks Dated

I have been the lucky recipient of this horrible flu going around this year and that is in part why I have not been here much at all. I happened to catch an old movie yesterday. The First Wives Club. Though this was made back in 1996, Goldie Hawn had the best hair. Loved it so had to go search for pictures. Great shape and beautiful color. Soft and touchable. These things never go out of style.

Chocolate and Caramel Ombre

I have not been around much with the holidays in full swing and me being sick to boot. Just a little beauty for you for today.

Beautiful Stephanie with her dark brown wanted to have a little change without cutting her hair off so we elected to add some caramel ombre. With an ombre, you can have some “blonde” in your hair whether or not it is “your color” so long as it is not against your face.
