My dear friend Lindsay must know me too well. As we were driving up to her cottage for a little R&R, she told me that she had come across an awesome homemade recipe for a Whipped Body Butter, and had brought up the ingredients for us to make it that night. As we took a look at the recipe, we decided that we should tweak it a bit as we were concerned that the solid ingredients wouldn’t quite whip up into the frothy concoction we wanted. So we took inspiration from the recipe (linked above) and below is the version that we created, which left us quite happy :). See, that’s the best thing about making your own products, you can replace, add, or take away ingredients; and often times coming up with great or even better results than the original recipe. Trial and error is all a part of the fun!
It’s summertime people, which means it is time for you (and I) to get our hands and feet looking great because there is nothing worse that putting on a cute pair of sandals and noticing that your feet are in less than desirable condition. If you are like me, you’ve also probably noticed that caring for your hands and feet are the first (beauty) item that gets pushed to the back burner when life gets busy. Ironically enough as i am writing my post, my hands are unfortunately, yet, again, in this sad predicament. If I was smart (and rich) I would be b-lining it to a salon every week to have my hands and tootsies tended to, but alas, this is only a dream and I am relegated to doing my own mani/pedis when I can find the time. Something I have noticed lately- I constantly find myself reaching for Cake’s one-of-a-kind, fabulous, ahhh-mazing, all-round winning product- Milk Made Hand & Cuticle Buffer , $18, to get the job done, super fast.
