{ yippee...I am featured }

I have super, super, super exciting news today!
I am now featured on Kari’s blog at Alas 3 Lads.
If you are not familiar with Kari’s blog you will soon be hooked.
She is a Kentuckian and everyone loves those colossal friendly people from KY.
I love her blog.
I enjoy stopping in on her blog on Tuesday’s
and checking out Movie Trailer Tuesday”
which includes great movie trailer to watch each week.
We are all super busy this time of the year during the Holidays.
I enjoyed making cut out sugar cookies with my girls.

Oh, no!
After we completed our Gingerbread House there was a earth quake.

I always fit in a little me time
and my latest obsession is homemade body scrubs.
My skin feels so super soft after I treat my entire body
with a homemade scrub in the shower.
Here is a recipe that I enjoy.
Chocolate Honey Scrub Recipe
3 Tbs. cocoa powder
1 cups honey
1 cups sugar 
1/4 cup olive oil
Combine honey and oil in bowl. Stir in chocolate and sugar mixing completely. Consistency should be grainy and thick. Apply scrub to skin in a circular motion and gently massage all over the body. Remove with warm water in the shower. Use this treatment once a week.
Increases circulation and aids in ridding body of toxins. Honey provides a moisturizing effect as well as fighting damaging free radicals. Cocoa powder has a super high mineral content. Minerals such as copper, iron, manganese, magnesium and zinc for the promotion of cell growth, the repair of tissue and the absorption of nutrients. 
I have posted additional skin recipes
made with common household kitchen staples on Kari’s blog.

Happy Holidays!
Smiles, Paula
Ho Ho Ho!


  1. Thanks again for guest posting, Paula! The sugar cookies and gingerbread house turned out cute. I can't believe it but I have never, ever made a gingerbread house.
